The Adcraft wok induction cooktop (designed, developed, and produced by Admiral Craft Equipment Corp.) is nothing short of spectacular whether you want to cook your favorite Asian dishes with a wok or just use traditional induction pans to prepare any other meals that you’ve been hoping to try!
Because of the round bottom configuration, it’s going to be a dream for traditional round bottom wok cooking, and will heat up in a ridiculously short period of time while at the same time giving you the most immediate access to temperatures between 140° and 460°F.
All of this is easily controlled by the buttons and knobs placed off to the side of this unit (so that they aren’t accidentally changed), and you’ll be able to fine-tune the power, temperature, and time that this unit is running off of with each of them.
Of course, while this induction cooktop is perfect for cooking with a wok (more so than a traditional stovetop solution), you need to make sure that you don’t overload the pan or your wok or you’ll run into temperature issues – and your meals will come out soggy or overly moist.
The recovery is definitely better with induction technology, but they’re still going to be a loss if you overcrowd the pan or wok.
Thanks to the smart temperature control, you’ll be able to prepare, and Asian style dishes with this induction technology, regardless of whether or not they demand temperatures for deep frying, passing, and we’ll blanching – some of the more specific techniques to Asian inspired cuisine.
The surface is ceramic glass (perfect for induction technology), and while the default power level is at 1200 W it can be easily adjusted from 500 W to 1800 woks with no effort at all.
It’s still important for you to keep this induction cooktop at least 12 inches from any walls (or any objects, for that matter) because of the heat, though it will auto shut itself off after two hours or if the temperature ever goes beyond 460°F.
Obviously, you’ll be able to turn it off with just a flick of a button as well!
