Skillet: A trade skill window replacement

Skillet is a replacement for the default tradeskill and craft UI.

To help with Localization see:


  • Larger the the standard tradeskill window
  • Built-in queue for creating multiple, different items
  • Queued items are saved when you log out and are restored on log in
  • Automatically buy reagents for queued recipes when visiting a vendor
  • If you can craft a reagent needed by a recipe, then clicking on that reagent will take you to its recipe (same features as Reverse Engineering.
  • If the item to be crafted requires a minimum level to use, that level can be displayed along with the recipe (disabled by default)
  • The shopping list of items needed for all queued recipes for all alts can be displayed at banks, auction houses, or from the command line
  • Items needed for crafting queued items can be automatically retrieved from your bank or guild bank (by using the shopping list)
  • User editable list of notes attached to reagents and crafted items.
  • Recipes can be filtered by name, whether or not you could level when creating the item, and whether or not you have the mats available.
  • Sorting of recipes (name, difficulty, level, and quality of crafted item)
  • Tracking inventory on alternate characters
  • Item tooltips can be set to display the list of alternate characters that can craft the item.
  • Custom grouping
  • User managed Ignored Materials List

    Great addon, love lilsparkies workshop too!

    I have a problem with skillet on some characters, the frame level of all of their profession buttons in the open skillet window is too low so i cannot click to change profession or summon cooking fires. It seems to be limited to that character until i delete the saved information, then it will change the problem to another character!

    Using the easy workaround of having proffesions on a dominoes bar *gasp!*

    Thanks for making WoW more enjoyable!

    Get this error, only when Skillet is active. Will also be posting on Ion page:

    You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.

  • #590

    In the latest version my blacksmithing char got 8 recipes that just show up as "unknown" with no further information.

    Not sure what that is about?

  • #589

    LibDialog-1.0 is missing in Libs folder

  • #596

    About libdialog missing, it's because Skillet is using libstub from other addons! (discovered from backtrace, and indeed those other libstub can't find libdialog which resides in skillet folder)

  • #587

    The button "Buy Regen" the merchant does not always appear.

    It appears after buying an item manually.

  • #586

    Hei there

    Since patch 5.0.4 i don't see the number which was next to every item, that described that i have or don't have a particular item.

    e.g: if i had 5x brillian queen garnet it appeared a light blue 5 next to brilliant queens garnet.

    What addon must i update or what must i do?

    Because so many addons are still broken I have left load out of date addons off.  For some reason skillet is still seen as out of date.

  • #582

    With respect, I submit the following:

    - 2.31 does not appear to have the correct TOC number (should be 50001).

    - Does it matter that the "## X-Curse-Packaged-Version:" line appears twice, each with a different number?

  • #581

    Hi, first, thanks for this wonderful addon! :3

    After patch I got this error when clicking on reagent that craftable by alt:
