1. And while you gourmet geniuses are at it

what's the difference between cold cuts and luncheon meat?

Asking for a friend who likes sandwiches.

9. Differeing income levels

Poor folks eat welfare steak, middin' folks eat cold cuts, upper middle class folks eat luncheon meats.

2. A skillet is a frying pan. A griddle is a flat pan that can be electric or sit on a burner.

A grill has a grill.

3. To my mind a skillet is a frying pan with low sloped sides; essentially an omelette pan.

A griddle is a relatively large flat surface. A cafe flat top is a griddle, but there are smaller versions that can be used on a stove top. A grill has ridges to put marks on what is being cooked. There are grill pans, and obviously they come in charcoal or gas versions for outside cooking, but it really refers to the cooking surface.

5. Well said. Skillets come in different sizes, usually round but I had a square cast iron one.

7. A skillet you put your skill into is by shaking it back and forth a lot

A grill is an open heavy wire rack that air can move through.

A griddle is a long flat frying pan, usually electric, though some are built into commercial stove tops and some might fit two gas or electric stovetop burners.

Whew. I didn't know I could gaslight that well. I should get a job writing for Republicans

8. More important is knowing when to use which

Any cooking surface with raised edges will retain heat (and steam) more than a flat one. The higher the edge, the greater the effect.
