Skillet: A trade skill window replacement

Skillet is a replacement for the default tradeskill and craft UI, and is based on Advanced Trade Skill Window, by Slarti.

  • 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.
  • Queued items are saved when you log out and are restored on log in
  • If the item to be crafted requires a minimum level to use, that level can be displayed along with the recipe (disabled by default)

  • Items needed for crafting queued items can be automatically retrieved from your bank or guild bank (by using the shopping list)

    I thought you meant skillet.lua, but there's no line 1430 in that file. Which file did you mean?
  • #210
  • #211
    Changed it and it just gave me more errors. Different errors.
  • #208
    The following were also updated:
    Aloft, AloftCastBars, AVR, Grid, GatherMate_Data, Chinchilla, ArkInventory

    Haven't tried the uncomment out line yet, doing so now.
  • #204
    I'm not sure if my situation is rare or not but I am using Skillet with 3.3.3 with no problems. I had to edit the .toc file to change the version number from 30000 to 30300 but otherwise I've had no issues with it. I'm using it with Lil Sparky's Workshop so maybe that makes a difference? Hope this helps.
  • #203
    Any good replacements for Skillet? I can't log in on any toon now since 3.3.3 launched with this mod enabled.
  • #202
    Skillet is all freaked out for me after the patch... after I enable "load out-of-date add-ons", the Skillet window comes up, but it contains no recipes, no glyphs, books, nothing. Empty.

    Any chance of fixing it in the near future?
  • #200
    No real update in over a year - not even a beta for over 6 months. Still trying to get a hold of lilsparky, but I've put in a request to take over this addon. It's far too awesome to let waste away.
  • #205
    you've tried to get ahold of me?

    i'm actually at work on my replacement for skillet. for the most part, skillet should still work fine. most of the problems people report are simply issues with a patch clearing the local cache which makes trade skills take a moment to come across to your client.

    there are also a few random nil errors that crop up, but by and large it's stable.
  • #201
    His last update was in August of 09. I do so hope it is taken over because I love this addon and I am goign thru withdrawals because I cant use it atm. Sparkys updates for this addon are at
  • #199
    he doesn't update this mod from curse. try the wow ace website.
  • #197
    is there gonna be an update for this b/c i just found this addon and would like to be able to use it plz :)
  • #196
    For me, the latest patch (3.3.2) seems to have broken *something*. I can't get either ATSW or Skillet to work (only loading one them at a time of course). Every time I open a trade skill, one of two things happens: either ATSW/Skillet show no recipes at all (or sometimes just 5-10 of them) -or- the whole game client crashes while the add-on "scans" the recipes, forcing me to manually kill the WoW.exe process. Deleting /Cache/ and the add-ons' SVs didn't help it.
    I can't tell if this is an issue with the actual trade skill add-ons or with another add-on or if it's just a link/lag related thing or whatever, but for some reason this isn't working as expected at all at the moment.
    The game's native trade skill window needs like 1-2 seconds to show my recipes, but working with it isn't exactly the comfortable way.
    Any ideas?
  • #195
    Yeah, this finally kicked the bucket... now to find an replacement.
