Well, it's been a day and no response. Guess you should look for the same one you would choose for home.

Some folks are using some of those new gadgets to cook in the kitchen, and swear by them.

Electric Skillet ?

Try. ninja crockpot. You can use it to sear food, an electric skillet, steam. All in one and low profile. Cleans up very easy.

there is no difference between RV Skillet and any other skillet. Buy what you want but keep it under 1800 watts. Then don't plug anything else into the circuit while you are using it. At home you probably plug into a 20 amp circuit. In the RV you are only plugging into a 15 amp circuit.

Since we try to minimize our use of electricity: we rely on our Blackstone propane griddle.
We converted it to be able to use the low pressure propane hook-up on the exterior of our rig, and have been very happy with it.

Interesting thought: We almost always are plugged in and therefore try to minimize our use of propane since electricity is, essentially, unlimited and, in many cases, "free".

After a season's use: our tank is still showing 87% full....
It's just another way to do the same thing.

Depends on the season for us: The very first weekend out with the Axis we burned through a complete tank (yeah it was April and 32F all weekend; definitely broke in the furnace! LOL).

Usually when I top off the propane in the Spring it is reading around 75%.

That's not a really big difference in the amount used, and I'm sure that you're using your rig a lot more than we are.

Maybe, maybe not: just finished our 5th season with it and the unit has 19k miles and change on it.

Probably not use it much in 2020 as we'll be busy sending someone to college.

It sounds as if you'll be boondocking in the campus parking lot: the kid's worst nightmare!

LOL! Yeah that would be but it wouldn't matter: His college of first choice is only 15 minutes away...

That's even BETTER!
Park at the campus, and tell him that you couldn't bear to be so far away.
Better yet: do it in front of his friends, and he'll agree to anything you want: if you just leave!
(Ours got his B.S. 10 years ago, and completed his Masters program in just five years: while working full time....)
