Electric Skillets & Woks Buying Guide

For even heating and cooking, an electric skillet or wok is just the ticket. An electric skillet can be an extension of your stove top or an energy-efficient replacement. An electric wok offers the round bottom that gives you the best stir-frying results, which can be problematic when cooking on an electric stove top.

Types of Electric Skillets & Woks

Whether you’re making breakfast for a crowd or need a secondary heat source for frying, an electric skillet is a nice item to have in the kitchen. An electric skillet set at 350°F stays at 350°F, without the uneven heat and hot spots common to electric stoves. The electric wok offers the preferred round-bottom shape for stir-frying and offers consistent, even heating.

Electric skillets

With external heat controls and a lid to keep the heat in, an electric skillet is a great way to cook fast meals all in one pan. Most have a dark, nonstick cooking interior and a glass lid.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

If you’ll be using your skillet or wok frequently, make sure you like its looks, as it will become part of your kitchen decor. Also make sure the model you buy has a cord long enough to reach the preferred outlet for cooking. Nonstick cooking surfaces are a plus for easy cleanup after high heat and lots of frying.

Price

Electric skillets and electric woks do range in price, so determine how often you plan to use the appliance before spending a lot of money.

Size

Consider how much you will typically cook in the skillet or wok and how much countertop space you have for the appliance, as they generally vary in size from 7 inches to 16 inches in diameter.

Shape

Round, oval, square, and rectangle -- electric skillets come in all shapes. Think about space on the countertop as well as storage space when choosing a shape. Woks are round.

Interior

Nonstick or not, the choice is yours. Nonstick surfaces are easier to clean but also limit the utensils you can use to stir or turn foods. Wood or heat-resistant plastic are your utensil options to avoid scratching the cooking surface.

Lid

If you like to keep an eye on the cooking process without opening the lid, choose a model with a glass top. More important, whether you choose a glass or solid lid, make sure the handle stays cool enough when cooking that you can lift the lid with ease.

Cord

For ease of cleaning, opt for a skillet or wok with a removable temperature control/cord unit. That will allow you to submerge the pan in water. Also, choose a cord that is long enough to accommodate your cooking space and outlet position.
