This wok has 5 quart or 20 cups capacity. You can feed 2 to 4 people easily. Of course, you can always cook more in one batch to save time and money later in the week.

Heating: Keep Warm to High Heat

(Back to Top)

The wok is designed to have Asian cuisine in mind, which means it can take high heat for searing and stir-frying. The wok is made of cast metal with a non-stick coating on the interior cooking surface. The wok can heat up very quickly and retains heat very well.

The wok is equipped with a temperature control probe. The probe has 10 dials from 1 to 10, 1 being “warm” and 10 “sear” or “high-heat”. The probe is removable by simply release the trigger without using all your might to pull the probe out in the older electric cookware.


Not detailed temperature information is available anywhere. Typical reading from “warm” to “high heat” would be from 250 to 425 degrees F.

Easy to Use and to Clean

(Back to Top)

The wok is very easy to use if you know how to cook Asian stir-fries or use it for cooking other dishes such as simmering a pot of hearty soup for the cooler fall and winter nights. Braising a rump roast over low to medium heat for several hours will produce the most tender meat with intense flavors.

How about cooking a one-pot meal in Chinese style? Place all your ingredients in the pot: assortments of sliced meats/seafood, tofu, vegetables and garnishes (cilantro, green onions and ginger). Then make a sauce with spicy soybean sauce, soy sauce, cooking wine, a dash of sugar and a can of chicken stock. To pair up with this dish, cook a pot of fresh rice of your choice. Plug the power cord in and let it simmer for 15 minutes or so. You’ll have a pot of everything to satisfy your taste buds. It’s easy, healthy and save time and money from going out.

Pros and Cons

(Back to Top)

ProsIt’s a great size for small to medium-sized families. It’s portable to cook inside, outside and anywhere in between. You can literally place the wok in the dining table and make it an interactive cooking experience where everyone puts in what they want to cook. If you haven’t tried this way yet, I can assure you that this type of entertaining will generate lots of laughter, interesting conversations and very fond of memories from your family or guests. The base of the wok is detachable for easy cleaning.

ConsThe temperature probe only has numeric numbers on it. Some people prefer having temperatures instead.
