Whip up healthy and delicious stir fry dinners with this handsome and convenient electric wok from Breville%2E The variable heat control has 15 settings%2C including a %22high sear%22 setting%2C so you can precisely control temperature and cooking time%2E
The Breville gourmet wok updates the electric wok design in every detail. For starters, its 1500-watt butterfly element is recessed around the base to create a heat zone over the entire surface--excellent conditions for quick searing and stir-frying. The variable heat probe includes 14 settings plus "high sear" for precise control, and the 14-inch-diameter die-cast wok bowl is roomy enough to handle whatevers ready in the garden. Designed for simpler clean-up, scratch-resistance, and reduced-fat cooking, the woks surface is a four-ply Quantanium coating, combining titanium-reinforced mid-coats with a durable nonstick exterior. The glass lid is satisfyingly heavy with a stainless-steel rim and a convenient steam vent. The most striking difference between this and your old electric wok is the quick-release base that lets you put everything but the temperature probe and power cord in the dishwasher. Breville also includes a temperature indicator light, a booklet of recipes and tips, and a plastic spatula. --Emily Bedard

It was initially a great wok but has a very poorly bonded nonstick surface. I should point out I used it 2 times / week, so if you only plan on occasional use it may work better for you.
I was VERY impressed with the excellent instructions that are provided in the book this comes with. I studied all their tips for an hour, and was amazed at the things I did NOT know, or had forgotten. Someone who never stirfried before could get first rate results by studying just a few pages. Little things are important - I used to just turn it on, and throw in the oil and wait for it to get hot. WRONG! You are supposed to turn it on EMPTY, let it get VERY hot, and only then put in the oil. And I realized I had started to get lazy, and was not doing smaller batches of items at a time, which does end up with better results.
If I need to get things out of the pan, I just hold a big bowl or plastic container next to it, and slide stuff up the side and out - or I just tip it up and dump it on a plate. Although it is good to know that once every few months I could actually take it apart for an old-fashioned cleaning, all you really need to do is wipe it out with a sponge. The non-stick surface is fantastic. The temperature dial is excellent, and it comes with the most heavy duty cord you ever saw!
Stir-fry is my teenaged son's favorite meal, and without a good wok, I hardly ever cooked it for him. Now when I tell him we're having stir-fry, he's thrilled. Remember this thing would be good for a lot more than just stirfry too. I was amazed that it could slow cook as well. I can make beef stew a one pot dish. Can't wait to try it out on tempura, which it will also be great for! There are also a lot of great recipes in the book.
The anti-stick surface doesn't have a scratch on it and I think this could almost pass for new with a thorough cleaning. The wok gets very hot and maintains heat well during cooking, even when you need high heat for an extended period of time. The manual is extremely thorough and filled with recipes and tips for usage and care, in stark contrast with most other things one buys these days in this price range.
Overall I am very happy with this purchase, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone interested in wok cooking. Just a quick, basic tip for anyone getting this or any other wok for the first time - work on cutting your meat well. With other cooking methods the cut isn't as important but with a wok the heat is high enough and the cooking time short enough that different sized pieces can easily burn or not get cooked through.
