Breville EW30XL Electric Gourmet Wok Reviews

Posted: May 18th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

Whip up healthy and delicious stir fry dinners with this handsome and convenient electric wok from Breville. The variable heat control has 15 settings, including a high sear setting, so you can precisely control temperature and cooking time. One-year limited warranty. Model EW30XL.
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 whatever’s ready in the garden. Designed for simpler clean-up, scratch-resistance, and reduced-fat cooking, the wok’s 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

Customer reviews

“Pleasantly surprised”
By Christabelle (Chicago)
Even with the great reviews, I was skeptical about using an electric wok. What a nice surprise! I am very pleased with this wok after using it several times. Meat gets a nice sear at the highest setting and veggies, rice, noodles, etc. cook nicely as well. I love that it’s easy to clean and the optional steam vents on the lid are a nice addition. The finish is still perfect, although I cannot get myself to use metal utensils on it. It’s just too gorgeous to risk scratching, even if it’s supposed to be durable enough to handle it. I’ve been recommending this wok to my friends and family. I have no complaints.

“Breville EW30XL Wok”
By Ernie (Oregon)
I have owned this wok a month and have been using it every day. The cooking results are great, it has the power I need to cook hot and fast. Very easy to use, and easy to cleanup. I initially thought that the price was a bit high, but for an appliance of this quality I consider it a bargain. I strongly recommend this product to anyone buying an electric wok.
