Oster electric skillets are available directly from the manufacturer's website or from small appliance retailers, such as Target, Amazon.com and Walmart. As of 2015, Oster sells electric skillets in two sizes at a price ranging from about $40 to $100.
Oster electric skillets are available in two sizes: 12 square inches and 12 by 16 inches. Basic electric skillets are attached to their bases. The more expensive models feature removable skillets to make serving, cooking and cleaning easier. Removable skillets are oven and dishwasher safe. The other Oster electric skillet models are also dishwasher safe when the electric probe is removed.
Oster electric skillets feature an adjustable knob to control the temperature. The glass skillet lids are tempered to prevent breakage, and most skillet models have lids with steam vents. The handles are also cool to the touch, allowing the skillet to be moved even while it remains hot.
Several Oster models have a DuraCeramic coating, which lasts four times as long as a standard nonstick coating. This ceramic coating does not flake or peel and does not contain the harmful compounds found in traditional nonstick coatings. The skillets with DuraCeramic reportedly cook up to 20 percent faster, saving energy and money.
