I've heard some electric skillets have a tilt leg. What is this for? Are there any electric skillets that tilt forward to drain, kind of like a commercial braising pan?

I was looking at Walmart the other day and I saw one (I think it was a West Bend or Rival, don't recall which) had a pouring spout at one corner.

Yes, there were electric skillets that had a flip down leg under the handle to allow the drippings to collect at the opposite side to be sucked out with a baster or dipped out with a spoon.

We had an avocado Teflon coated GE with the tilt leg feature.  The legs on both sides were also detachable.  It was acquired with tobacco coupons which used to be in Bel Air & Raleigh cigarette packs.  We also currently have a stainless steel Sunbeam that was gifted to us from the Kelly (Mixfinder).
