If you love great stir fry dishes, check out our electric wok reviews of the best selling ones on the market. We will look at the four best selling ones online. Please see which ones are in the top four and why they are there.

Presto 5900 1500-Watt Stainless-Steel Electric Wok Get Today’s Price Presto Electric Wok The Presto 5900 1500-Watt Stainless-Steel Electric Wok is the #1 selling electric wok on Amazon. It has well over 100 customer reviews and comes in with a solid 4+ stars. Currently priced at under $70, it is fairly inexpensive. We will look at less and more expensive options in this review. I will add a comparison cart at the end of the article to compare all of the features of the different woks and then give my recommendation for the one I think is the best buy for your money and why. Owners loved how fast it heated up and the ease of cleanup. The main complaint was the area just above the heating elements caused a hot spot. The remedy was either to lower the temperature or keep stirring the ingredients. It is called stir fry.

It is difficult to choose the best selling electric woks because there are so many different factors to consider. I can look at the best selling ones on Amazon oe look at the ones that get the most searches online. Even on Amazon, some models get many more reviews than others ones, but aren’t ranked as high in sales. So my choices may be somewhat arbitrary, but wanted you to be aware of how I made my selections.

Breville BEW600XL Hot Wok Get Today’s Price
Breville Electric Wok
The Breville BEW600XL Hot Wok is the #3 best selling model in this category at Amazon. But Breville woks are the top searched for models on Google. There is another model by Breville on Amazon but it is quite a bit more expensive, presently over $300. You can check it out here if you like. The BEW600XL is still the most expensive model in this review. It has over 50 customer reviews and again has an impressive 4+ star rating also. Unlike the Presto model, nearly all were happy with the even distribution of heat. Like most non stick cooking appliances, some people were unhappy with the durability of the non stick coating. But it seems if you follow the instructions and use wooden utensils, you should be happy with the non stick feature. But anything that gets over a 4 star rating, most customers were very happy with it. Get the current price by clicking the link above.

Aroma AEW-306 5-Quart Electric Wok Get Today’s Price
Aroma Electric Wok
The Aroma AEW-306 5-Quart Electric Wok is currently the #2 seller in this category and is the least expensive one. But don’t let the inexpensive price fool you, the over 70 happy owners gave this another 4+ star rating. The owners loved the quick heating, ease of clean up and the economical price. Saw a couple of objections for lack of a temperature control. The control has numeric numbers instead of actual temperatures. But most people quickly found out the setting they liked best. This one looks like a winner for those on a limited budget. Get the current price by clicking the link and see the comparison cahrt at the bottom of this report. See where I rank this one compared to the other three.

Below is the final product I will include in this article. At the very bottom of the page, you can see other reviews. Eventually there will be individual reviews on a few of these products.

West Bend 79586 6-Quart Capacity Electric Wok Get Today’s Price
West Bend Electric Wok
The West Bend 79586 6-Quart Capacity Electric Wok is currently the #4 selling wok in this category. Again, like the other three models, owners gave this one a 4+ star rating. I might add that nearly all of the lower reviews had to do with shipping and not the unit itself. West Bend has been around a long time and is a name you can trust. People loved the larger size of this one because fewer accidents of getting rice all over the table or counter when stirring. A couple of people said this one was replacing a similar one they had owned for over 20 years, a pretty solid stamp of approval. Looks like most people are happy with all of these selections. That is why they are the best selling models on Amazon.

Let’s face it, looks like most people are happy with any of these selections. But what would you expect from the top selling models. Below I have presented you a chart so you can see a side by side comparison of the features and prices of each of the four models. You can make your own selection based on your needs or see my pick below the chart.

My pick for the best buy for your money is actually the least expensive model, the Aroma AEW-306 5-Quart Electric Wok, although the Aroma AEW-306 5-Quart Electric Wok came in a very close second. It actually had fewer negative reviews but costs quite a bit more. Be careful with the non stick coating on the Aroma model. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the models, so if one fits your needs better, go for it. Thanks for stopping by and my desire is to give you enough information for you to be careful in making the right decision for the wok that will best meet the needs of your situation.

    I love cooking with a wok, it’s so quick and easy. My kids love my chicken teriyaki – it takes minutes but they think it’s like I created a work of genius!

    So far, I have only ever used a traditional wok over a gas hob. How do these compare? I like to give the wok a good shake from time to time. I’m not sure if it does anything – it might just be a habit I’ve gotten into, but I’m used to it now. Can you do that with these? The base looks a little heavy.

    • Charles says:

      They are of course heavier than one without the cooking elements built in. But that gives the added flexibility of being portable, can even be done on a kitchen or dining table, or even out on the patio, and let everyone choose their own ingredients. Also a quick stir will do the same trick (thus the name stir fry) as your “good shake.” Did you mean you created a “wok of genius.” Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
