Word Origin for skillet
c.1400, of uncertain origin, perhaps from Middle French esculette "a little dish" (Modern French écuelle), diminutive of escuele "plate," from Latin scutella "serving platter" (see scuttle (n.)); or formed in English from skele "wooden bucket or pail" (early 14c.), from a Scandinavian source (cf. Old Norse skjola "pail, bucket").
