Stellar Electric Wok UK Review

The Stellar electric wok is one of the more popular buys, for people living in the UK. Overall buyers rate it highly as a 4.7 out of 5 star product, which is a vert good and consistent rating. If you are in any doubt as to the quality of this product, then this rating should instil a lot of confidence.

The RRP of this wok is £112, but if you search around, you should be able to find it as cheap as £55-60.  Please note that this particular model is available either in a black colour only. Therefore it is quite limited in that respect. You can see an image of the Stellar wok just below.

Stellar Wok Summary Review

Like any good wok, this one has a non-stick coating. That of course means the food will not stick, even at high temperatures. It also makes it a great deal easier to clean. It also has a glass lid so as you easily check on your food.

The other two features worth noting are that it has large cool touch handles, which allow you to carry the wok without burning your fingers. It also then comes with a trigger-release heat control probe.

It is always important to read reviews before buying anything. This wok is clearly a very good one. Nevertheless, I always like to see how buyers actually rate their purchase, and what they have to say about it. We have summarised the key findings just below.

Pros & Cons of the Stellar Wok

Below we have captured what buyers actually said. This includes all buyers as we like to keep our reviews balanced. Even though only 2 out of every 100 buyers rated this wok as a 1 star product, we always like to find out why. 

PROS

  • Most buyers used this for stir fries, curries, casseroles etc and were very pleased with the results
  • Many buyers found this easy to clean, mostly with a wipe from a wet cloth
  • Stated that it reached a high temperature very quickly
  • Buyers said it was a large pan and ideal for cooking for larger families
  • Said it cooked evenly without sticking
  • The pan is deep, the sides heat up so no splashing or spilling

CONS

  • The only complaints we could find were about a poor delivery service when they ordered

Those who gave this wok a low rating said the wok was very good, but they had problems with the delivery company.

It really only needs a quick wipe out with kitchen towel to clean it. I've used it for stir frys, curries, casseroles and for steaming a pudding and it performs equally well..

Loving this wok! It has a nice deep pan meaning there is not as much splashing and cooks evenly without sticking. Not cheap but worth every penny.

Our Verdict on the Stellar Wok

94 %
VALUE FOR MONEY

The 4.7 out of 5 star buyer rating is about right for this one. It is highly rated by buyers.  I believe it also sells quite a lot because of the great looking style. We didn't find any complaints about this wok, and that is always a good sign

It has all the important elements a wok should have. It is electrically heated, heats up quickly, and a range of 10 heat settings.

Personally at the RRP of £112 I would not buy this one, but if I could find it cheaper, then yes.

The only thing that puts us off highly recommending a product, is if we find a number of legitimate poor ratings. There were only 1% of these, and that was down to a dispute with the delivery of the wok. It didn't relate to the quality of it.

If this is not the one for you, then check out our top 5 list of woks, by clicking here. This one did however come out at number one on our list.

Overall this one has a 94% satisfaction rating, and it does not get any better than that. It has a nice range of features as well, and can do all the basics and more.
