"An Electric Wok That Rocks"
"Read why this Electric Wok Beats Stovetop Stir Fry Pans Hands Down"
I was recently discussing the benefits of using a carbon steel wok for making delicious Asian style stir fry when one of my friends piped up and informed the group that there is an electric wok that works every bit as well as the stove top models.
Well I was dubious...after all isn't it a well known fact that electric woks don't generate enough of the heat necessary to quickly stir fry the food?
So needing to keep my reputation intact, I didn't let on that I didn't know what she was talking about and we moved on to other things.
As soon as I got home, I hopped on the net tosearch for this mysterious electric wok that can produce enough heat to create amazing stir fries.
Unfortunately my friend didn't know the brand at the time so it was up to me to find it but since I own this website and research is what I do I knew I would find it...if in fact it was out there at all.
"So where did my research take me"
Well after checking out a range of electric woks I was beginning to feel quite smug and justified in my original assessment of electric woks. When I later mentioned this to my friend, she replied "Uh uh! and did you look at the Breville Electric Gourmet Wok?"...well nice to know she finally remembered what it was she was talking about...but all I could I say at the time was "No, I hadn't".
So off I went again to find out all about the Breville electric wok which I eventually figured out was the Breville EW30XL Electric Gourmet Wok model. I knew that I would add this wok to this site if it was indeed as good as she said it was but I needed to ensure that it made the grade.
is a breeze
Usually electrical items are a pain in the proverbial 'you know what' to clean up. But this wok breaks down so that everything except the power cord and the temperature probe can be placed in the dishwasher.
The surface of the wok is non-stick and scratch resistant so you aren't going to get bits of burnt on food even at high temperatures and because you don't have to use fats and oils your cooking will be healthy.
Something to consider
If you like to lift your wok to toss the food, you are not going to be able to do this with the electric wok, you will have to use a spatula or spoon to move the food around.
What do others say
Well this wok is highly recommended by almost everyone who owns it, from a professional Chef who cooks Asian meals to the home cook who just loves to make healthy, tasty Asian stir fry's for their family. We've already mentioned the 5 star rating on Amazon
So there you have it, my friend was right...there is an electric wok that performs every bit, if not better than the traditional stove top woks and I have to thank her for bringing it to my attention.
