Our hand hammered wok is stir frying over HIGH heat lending a wonderful 'wok hay' flavor to your stir fries. The wok's origins are from China where for over 2000 years, it has been the most versatile piece of cookware. Today it is used all over the world to cook delicious foods. We fell in love with the wok on our cycle tour in Thailand, with hot pad thai and curries cooked up on high heat!
Hand shaped from beginning to end. The rainbow colors are due to heat treatment, forming a protective layer of blue iron oxide providing an excellent pre-seasoned surface.
The wok is ready to go the moment it arrives in your kitchen--no lengthy seasoning needed! Heavy gauge carbon steel, easy to season, and gets better with each use.
14" diameter is the recommended size for a home kitchen.
The round bottom wok is designed to conduct heat more evenly and allow the ladle to pick up and move food at the bottom more easily. Hand hammering toughens the metal.
For gas stove top only.
WOK RING REQUIRED. Can be separately purchased here
