I bought this wok 5 months ago and really loved it. However tonight I boiled some dumplings in it and when it had cooled the bottom was discoloured and it looked like the Teflon had come off the bottom of the pan. very strange.
Anyway taking it back to the Good GUYS tomorrow for a refund. Very disappointing.

Good for the money
Quite a good sized wok which heats up fast, perfect for everything from stir-frying to scrambled eggs, nothing sticks and it's easy to clean inside.
My only small complaint would be the handles which sit up above the sides of the wok and they're spaced a couple of millimeters off the side of the wok, I can see in the future splatters and dribbles will build up in the gap between the wok and the handles and it will be near impossible to clean in there.
Absolutely love this
I am absolutely thrilled with this wok. It is capable of cooking at a really high temperature which is perfect for a stir fry or searing meat. It is a lot lighter in weight than other electric woks that I have owned which is fantastic. This performs way better than other electric woks I have previously owned, therefore I am going to purchase another one.
Best Christmas present ever
I received the Kambrook Essentials Wok for a gift. I would never have brought one for myself. Well I would have miss out it amazing I cook in it all the time. Not just stir fry it's big enough for our family of five plus leftovers. So its a win win
This is a great electric wok!
Great fast heating, maintains all temperatures well, easy to use and a breeze to clean. It is a shallow wok (but 5 litre so holds a lot of food). Unlike those that steep-sided woks where all the food at the bottom cooks over-done and the food at the top is under-done.
Temperature not hot enough & fluctuates
Purchased on special at The Warehouse today & will be returning to the store tomorrow. Set it to pre-heat to the highest setting of 10 and let it run a few cycles first before adding sliced chicken. It should have been hot enough to sear the meat or at least start searing it, no hissing until the thermostat switched off and temp powered up again for about a minute then cut out again (thermostat light went off). End result was it took considerably longer to cook than in a pan on the stove.
Was half price special today...now I know why
See review above
Easy to cook with.
"Excellent wok. easy to clean & heats quickly. No more undercooked soggy veg or burnt offerings. The tempature controlls are easy to use I have had other woks (non-electrical) but none of them compare to this one better than even the more expensive WOKs I've owned. Definately a deal buster. I would definitely recommend it.
Easy to clean very easy use.

The best electric wok I have used!
I purchased this wok to do a bit of odd stir frying and to have another cooking spot in the kitchen. This has to be the best electric wok I have used and for the price it beats anything else of a higher price.
The wok has 10 heat settings, for most cooking you won't need to use anything about setting 8. The heat is evenly distributed all the way up the sides of the wok and heat is almost instant so cooking is fast and effective.
Easy to clean as the wok clips off the base and can be placed in the dish washer. The teflon coated wok can be ...wiped clean when cooking meats and vegetables separately. I have cooked stir frys, stews, sauces, bolognese and fried in the wok...this is just awesome. I highly recommend that you try one out, even if you are looking into a high end expensive model from somewhere else. It does the job and does it well. Instant heat, good price, easy to clean - dish washer safe.
This electric wok is fantastic! It does everything you want it to do and when you are finished it cleans so easily with a simple swish around with hot soapy water and whollahhh..All clean and ready for next time! Alternatively, you can put this whole wok into your dishwasher as the heating element is fully sealed and it has a removable base. It features a Low heat setting which is great just for keeping food warm and Medium heat is great for casserole style cooking and steaming foods...it is not just for asian stir-fries as you may think.
Heats up quickly..Easy to clean..Not too expensive!
Nothing...Oh..maybe it takes up a bit of room in your cupboard!

Am looking at a krambrook wok kew 5 to use for waxing camellias. would like to know if the temperature setting would allow me adjust the temperature down to 140 degrees far. or 60 degrees cen. The temperature setting is critical at this setting otherwise will not wax flower properly. thanks
Hi Des, the wok should not be used for waxing camellias. Thanks, the Kambrook Team
