Cast iron wok, the very best in gourmet cooking. This will be cooking at it's finest
Tips to take better care of product:
Dry thoroughly right away to prevent rusting and apply a thin coat of oil prior to storing.
With first time use, until seasoning is built up, use a little extra oil to prevent foods sticking.
Avoid acidic foods like tomatoes, beans and certain sauces until seasoning is well established.
Always store in a dry place.
- Do not use in mircowave
- Never slide cookware on glass or ceramic cook tops or place directly on countertops.
Much heavier than traditional steel woks, this solid cast-iron wok absorbs and retains heat at the high temperatures needed for superior stir-fry cooking. A flat bottom sits the wok securely on a stovetop, gas grill, or charcoal grill, while two loop handles allow for safe lifting with oven mitts. The wok measures 14 inches in diameter (17 inches with handles), and 4 inches deep--generous enough for a family-size meal.
The wok must be seasoned before first use to create a nonstick patina that also helps prevent rusting. After washing, apply a thin layer of vegetable oil and heat the wok for one hour. While the wok can be seasoned on a grill, an oven works best. Instructions for the seasoning process are included with the wok. After subsequent use, the wok should be washed by hand and dried before storing. Mr. Bar-B-Q covers the wok with a five-year warranty against defects. --Ann Bieri
