It doesn't have the typical long handle, but this Webalco by West Bend model 7884 stainless steel liquid oil core electric fryer pan with lid is labeled Electric Skillet on the underside. It's quite heavy and good quality, measuring 11-1/2 inches diameter not including the handles (9-1/2: interior cooking surface) by 4 inches to the rim on its sturdy inverted V tripod legs. The heat control dial has settings for temperatures from 250 to 400 degrees, plus lower ranges for warm and simmer. The skillet works very well, the stainless steel shiny with very few use or storage marks. It was either used very little or extremely well cared for.
The underside has a patent number which was issued in 1961. From my research, Webalco waterless cooking oil core skillets were quite expensive and came with a lifetime guarantee. The West Bend company no longer exists, though products carrying the West Bend name are being made today in China.
