Similar to cooking on a gas stove, the unique 1500 Watt Butterfly Element of the Hot Wok distributes heat evenly up the walls of the wok, maximizing high-heat searing potential. The heat-responsive aluminum layers maintain this high heat to sear food, sealing in moisture. 15 precision heat settings to 425 F emulate authentic Asian-style cooking.

Put simply, this wok has changed my life! I know...that sounds goofy, but it really has. I am a single 40-something who used to barely cook. I would burn water...if you know what I mean. I hate clean-up, hate following recipes for 2-4+ and it being only for me, I hate waiting for things to cook in the pot and the pans and all the dishes.... All those dishes...
Bluntly...I used to HATE cooking and being in the kitchen; well, that was up until my Breville Hot Wok arrived at my doorstep!
No under-stating here, it is a large beast. It takes up real-estate!!
It is like the 1970's Cadillac decked out for the low-rider with fur and dice strapped around the mirror complete with shiny rims.
It is HUGE!!! But I LOVE IT!!!! It has its own plot of land in my kitchen complete with fenced in yard and car port. It never sees the inside of a cupboard. I use it every single day! Yes, you read that correctly...I use it...I cook now...every day!!!
This Wok has converted me from a fast food, microwave heating, just-add-water sort of gal into a veggie slicing, meat cutting, stir-frying woman!!!
I can't seem to find anything I cannot make in the wok that used to require the stove or microwave. Better yet, I have increased my veggie intake 1,000 fold. It is the only cookware that I have used in months.
And the cleanup! OH MY how wonderful!!! wet a paper towel... wipe. DONE!!!!! That leaves washing the utensil I used to move the food around. Wha-La!!!! AWESOME!!!!!
Other things for consideration:
*It has a removable base. While unplugged and cold, flip it over, turn the lock. Remove the base.
*You can clean the wok with a wet towel... it has an awesome non-stick surface so food does not stick...thus the wipe with a towel.
*Please only use non-metal utensil in this masterpiece. What a shame it would be to ruin it by using a knife or metal spatula and digging up the surface.
*It cost more than others out there...WELL WORTH IT!!
*Heats up FAST!
*Heats evenly, no "hot-spots" on the surface.
*It is large, but cooks for one as easily as it will for 4.
*Cooks food fast...I think that is a WOK characteristic. Meat sears and cooks in about 2-3 minutes. Veggies take about the same time. I can have a complete meal in about 5 minutes!!! (I even sliced up a potato and made "fried" potatoes in it with about a tablespoon or less of oil. Cooked them perfectly and in less than 5 minutes.)
*comes with a booklet with some recipes
*Cord is that Breville trade mark design. Has that "O" to pull with your finger so you never get near the outlet.
*It is a WOK...and that means... big. I have not seen any woks that were "small". The potential trouble is where to store it when not in use. I leave mine on the stove. I have a nonflammable cover that sits on my gas stove metal grill thingy (the gill that holds the pans/pots above the flame--that thing). So my wok is out 24/7 in plain view like the microwave and the coffee pot.. Microwaves/coffee pots sit out all day...why should not my awesome wok? :-)
Overall I love this wok and highly recommend it. But before you buy it, make sure you want the Cadillac in the garage, and ... make sure you have room for the Cadillac.
The instruction book has a bit of a recipe book in the front of it, so you might check that out if you don't normally read instruction books.
It is very straightforward and easy to use. It heats up very quickly, and sears to perfection. The directions say to let it heat for 10 minutes before using but I've not waited that long.
I love the way the plug has an "O" in it so you can hook a finger in to unplug it. I wish all appliances were like that! It's a cord of decent length too, and it's well insulated. The top detaches from the base. I had no problem detaching mine. Reattaching, now that was a bit of a problem until I realized you have to PUSH DOWN on the turning handle and then turn, like a childproof cap- THEN it was easy.
Clean up is great- it is highly nonstick. The only potential problem that I see is that there is a bit of space between the handles and the wok that food could fall or drip and that could be hard to clean if it dried. Of course, the WHOLE thing detaches from the base and it can be put in a dishwasher.
To store you can put a couple of paper towels in it, and place the cord on those, then put the lid on upside down. It is BIG though, so storage could be a problem.
We plan on using ours outside a lot this summer, as it will be perfect on the picnic table on hot days when we don't want to heat the house up cooking. I'll prep early in the day, then cook and serve from the wok itself for evening meals by the pool.
features. i've had it for 6 weeks so far using it 2-3 times a week and it's still like new.
"this is by far the best electric WOK out there !
i tried the Presto 5900 stainless wok but the flat
bottom and tiny heating element were deal breakers.
the Hot Wok Pro is in a class by itself, the body
of the wok is over 1/4" thick promoting awesome
heat transfer and the huge butterfly heating element
heats the bottom and sides evenly. the 14 heat settings
plus sear make it easy to cook just about anything,
you can even use it as a crockpot on the low settings.
so far the best feature is the amazing non-stick
coating, non-stick really means non-stick !!!
broccoli with cheese sauce, scrambled eggs, stir-frys
literally slide out. after cooking i let it cool while i eat
(about an hour) then wipe it out with a soapy sponge
and paper towel i wish i had a gas stove so i could
use a traditional wok but the Hot Wok Pro is surely
the next best thing."
UPDATE: had the WOK almost 4 months now and used it well over 100 times.
still looks and works like new, non-stick finish is still amazing !!!
UPDATE: 6/6/14 had this WOK for a year now and used it over 500 times.
Eclipse finish still looks like brand new !
UPDATE: 7/13/15 two years of regular use and it still looks and works like new !
non-stick finish is still perfect !
UPDATE : 3/6/16 after 3 years of regular use the non-stick finish is still perfect
and the wok works like new. best wok i ever bought !
