: Can anyone tell me how well a wok works on top of an electric smoothop stove? We have electric coils now, but are thinking of replacing them with a smoothtop (our stove is old and just broke again). Gas is not an option for us.
REPLY: It is very difficult to control wok cooking on electric range as coils do not cool down quickly & food keeps on cooking (unlike gas).
If your wok has a flat bottom & can sit directly upon heat source & you remove wok upon reaching desired stir-fry tenderness - it might work out.
Don't know how it would work if your wok needs the cooking ring...
