Hand-Hammered Carbon Steel Pow Wok for Stir-Fries and so much more.

Version 2.0 Lighter overall. We are using 16 gauge steel instead of 14 gauge to make the wok lighter to use with the pow action.

This hand-hammered carbon steel wok is perfect for tossing and flipping food 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.

It is made of heavy gauge carbon steel that is easy to season and gets better with each use. 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. The 14" diameter is the recommended size for a home kitchen. It requires a gas stove top and a wok ring (sold separately here).


  • Steep sides allow for the quick 'pow' action created with the flip of the hand and wrist.
  • Hand-hammered carbon steel for durability and even heat distribution
  • Pre-seasoned for easy cooking
