Presto 5900 1500-Watt Stainless-Steel Electric Wok Review
This electric wok is perfect for anyone who is worried about the durability and care required when using non-stick tefal woks such as the Breville EW30XL. Made from stainless steel with an aluminium base you can cook time and time gain with this electric wok without the fear of scratching a non-stick surface.
Fantastic temperature control and fast to heat up
What impressed us most about the Presto 5900 electric wok was how quickly the wok heated up. The aluminium base really ensures that the heat is distributed evenly throughout the electric wok allowing for fast and efficient cooking. The manual temperature control makes it ideal for cooking a range of foods from vegetables to chunks of meat. This temperature control allows you to cook your ingredients for the right amount of time without losing any of the vital vitamins and ingredients from your food.
Great Big Handles
The majority of electric woks on the market have rather small plastic carrying handles. The Presto electric wok is different in that it has large looped handles making it easy to carry your food directly to the table rather than plating up in the kitchen. We also like these handles as they allow you a really good grip which makes shaking and tossing your ingredients really easy.
See Your Cooking
We have always favored woks with glass lids for the simple reason that we like to see our ingredients cooking. The tempered glass of this electric wok is perfect for ensuring that nothing gets burnt when cooking at high heat.
Summary of the Presto 5900 Electric Wok
This electric wok is ideal for those of us who do not want the maintenance and care required when using a non-stick wok. The wok gets extremely hot allowing for quick searing and cooking of all ingredients. Some customers have complained about the rather short extension cord, however in our opinion this is a nice safety feature and the cord can always be extended with an extension cord.
Like most electric woks available on the market, this wok is dishwasher safe which means that cleaning it is an absolute breeze. The wok is also made of stainless steel and so will not require “seasoning” with oil like the more traditional woks used on gas stoves.
We highly recommend the Presto 5900 electric wok if you are novice or have been cooking Chinese food for years, you will be happy with the results and so will your family.
What Others Say
“I was reluctant to spend so much money on this wok, but after scratching my way through two inexpensive, non-scratch, I decided to take the chance. I’m very happy that I did. It heats quickly and evenly, and is surprisingly easy to clean.” Read More
“I bought this wok because it was stainless steel as a non-stick version would have to be replaced much sooner because of the interior. This wok is very nice looking. It heats quickly with much of the outside area remaining cool to the touch. Clean-up is a breeze.” Read More
