In the run-up to the test, we defined practical requirements and the following test criteria:
- Safety and security
- Temperature control
In order to evaluate these criteria, we have defined several tests for electrical woks. First of all, the scope of delivery, the functions and the volume are checked. In the first test, all devices must prepare courgettes, carrots, broccoli and peppers. Before the ingredients can be fried, the required warm-up time and the resulting temperature are measured. In addition, a thermal imaging camera is used to check for possible security risks.
When the vegetables are roasted, the different heat levels are tested and the temperature is measured again. In a further test run, fried potatoes are prepared according to the same scheme. Once the appliances have cooled down, individual parts are tested for dishwasher resistance and all appliances are cleaned.
In order to rule out errors and to ensure the stress of everyday use, each test takes place in several rounds.
The test criteria are given percentages depending on their importance. The final score is then objectively calculated from the test criteria using an algorithm.
Our product selection is based on an observation of the current market. In addition to popular branded products, we also include insider tips in our selection. Criteria such as price and range of functions are an important factor for us. The test field is also determined by analysis and evaluation of customer reviews and external tests (e.g. Stiftung Warentest).
The devices are purchased anonymously or lent to us by the manufacturer. Dealers and manufacturers have no influence on the tests and our evaluation.
As soon as new relevant products come onto the market, our test field is extended by these. The new products go through the same test as the already tested devices.
