Top Customer Reviews
The coating used in our EW30XL is a very high quality coating called Quantanium, made by Whitford. We recommend using wooden utensils and avoiding the use of excessive oil. This product has less than a 1% defective rate currently.
I pondered buying the Breville EW30XL but ended up buying the Presto 5900 Stainless Steel Wok. I figured no matter how careful I'd be with the EW30XL it'd eventually become scratched due to my negligence just like the rest of my other non-scratch surface type kitchen pans.
I'm sure you wouldn't go wrong with the Breville EW30XL wok given the proper care and attention.
A few days after I purchased the Presto 5900 Stainless Steel Wok I tried out one of the recipes that came with the instructions and it came out great (Chicken with Snow Peas, Carrots and Bean Sprouts). The vegetables came out nice and crisp and the chicken wasn't tough or dried out. It was a big improvement over the way I used to cook stir fry which was cooking with a traditional wok, the kind with the ring that the wok sits on while it's cooking on the range. I cooked over a natural gas range that wasn't calorific enough to provide the satisfactory results needed for a good stir fry. This resulted in everything I stir fried coming out lukewarm and mushy.
One thing you'll have to pay attention to when you're cooking with the Presto 5900 Stainless Steel Wok, is that you'll have to have all of your "ducks in a row". In other words, you can't be reading the recipe trying to figure out what happens next in the recipe or cutting ingredients while the Presto wok is sizzling away at 375 degrees temp ... you might over-stir fry whatever you're cooking at the time.
The Presto 5900 Stainless Steel Wok is a nice unit and I can't wait to try other recipes with it. After so many years I've finally been able to enjoy a hot stir fried meal instead of my usual lukewarm and mushy stir fry. I really enjoyed that.
I almost forgot ... the short cord wasn't a problem for me, in fact, if it was any longer I'd have a conflict with all of the other cooking things I have cluttered on my counter top. I'd end up with a tangled, coiled up mess if the cable was any longer. In fact, the length was perfect. That doesn't mean the short cable length will work for everyone as we've read in the other reviews, so, you'd have to see for yourself to make the final decision. A small extension cord will fix any cable length issue so it shouldn't be a problem.
Good luck, everyone, regardless of what you end up buying.
in how many quarts this thing holds. I was, when I researched woks, and NOWHERE
on the net was this listed. Sure, the dimensions are there but that includes handles, etc. I was trying to replace a 7 quart wok and might have settled for 6, but 5 would have been unacceptable. Someone at Presto really screwed up not providing this critical piece of information in their marketing write ups which are parroted all over the net, including at Amazon. I'm sure it is costing them sales.
Drumroll please......IT HOLDS JUST OVER 7 QUARTS. I almost did not buy this because of the aforementioned mystery but relented since it seemed to fit, in every other way, what I was looking for. I got lucky.
As for other aspects: The cover is real nice. The body is a bit lighter weight than I thought it might be but is acceptable. There are a couple of manufacturing flaws in the body which I will live with (a small deformation bump in the base and a small pit in the side) so don't expect a perfect product. The legs are screwed into the aluminum base and it would be real easy to strip the threads if you are not careful. The instructions warn about that. Two of the legs required tightening right out of the box, not a big deal. The legs smartly have rubber pads on the bottom to prevent slipping on the counter. I will confirm the control cord is short, but that is fine with me. Longer would actually be inconvenient. It seems to heat well, though I don't have a lot of experience with it yet. My needs are not heavy in that area.
Overall I am happy with it and, since it luckily meets my capacity requirements, I am giving it 4 stars. It would have been 5 if I did not have to guess at what I was buying and did not have the very minor flaws in the body.
We chose this Wok but we were nervous about sticking issues. However, that worry was unnecessary. We use plenty of healthy fats when cooking in the Wok, so we haven't had sticking issues. As long as you use the right oils and the right amount of oil... and stir regularly it doesn't seem to be a problem.
We also love that this has a lid, our old one did not.
And, we really like that it is dishwasher and sink safe. That makes cleaning up a breeze. Sometimes reading lots of reviews on amazon can become almost paralyzing. Some people love an item and some hate it making it hard to make a decision. Ignore any bad ones, this thing rocks if you use it right!

Had high hopes for it, but it is a waste of money.
The bottom of the pan gets hot enough for stir fry, but, the sides stay way cold.Read more
