• Tilt skillets can leak or have steam escape from their cooking chambers. This is often due to a faulty gasket; having one replaced is a relatively simple, inexpensive fix.
  • Like all cooking equipment, tilt skillets may not be heating properly. This can be caused by bad burners, a faulty pilot light or frayed power cord (for electric units). Operators should monitor the basics like cords to stop small problems before they take a whole unit out of service.
  • Sometimes, tilt skillets won't tilt. This is a mechanical problem that is best left to a service agent, who can check the hinges and gears for proper operation.
  • Regularly clean tilt skillets with the proper detergents. Since the interior is shaped like a large pot, operators should take special care to thoroughly rinse out the unit after each cleaning. Many units can be purchase with a spray hose or faucet attachment to make cleaning and rinsing easier.
  • Depending on the unit, the lid lift and the pan lift mechanisms may need regular lubrication. Operators should consult their owners manual for instructions.
  • Regularly have an authorized service agent check and adjust the tilting mechanism.
