About this deal

The combination of both layers allows for sharp frying with little addition of fat and at the same time prevents the meat or other fried food from sticking. This classy large black wok with its non-stick interior will create that perfect stir-fry every time. The top performers were also highly responsive to changes in heat so that we could lower the temperature enough to cook the garlic without burning it. The bottom surface of the wok I received was also slightly warped, so it was not induction compatible. But all of the tested models were brand new with only the four layers of light seasoning that we added.

Helen Chen's Asian Kitchen Flat Bottom Carbon Steel Wok: This spun wok performed well in testing, but its durability is suspect. The best woks had wider cooking surfaces, which led to more direct contact with the heat source and even cooking. Because it's hand-hammered, there are imperfections in the metal, and the distribution of heat seemed uneven.When using or seasoning a flat bottomed wok on an induction stove, it's important to gradually heat it on medium heat and avoid using high heat settings during the heating-up process to prevent the wok's bottom from warping. Then we wiped a thin layer of oil and seasoned each wok in a 500°F oven for 45 minutes, repeating each seasoning step for a total of four layers of seasoning on each wok. The wooden handle is also tricky to remove if you’re trying to season the wok in the oven (a little gentle heating expands the metal, which helps release the handle). And if you want to season your wok in the oven, you're out of luck because of the wooden helper handle.

This model also features a helper handle, which gives added flexibility and stability when handling large quantities of food. The stainless steel pan series from the traditional Austrian brand Hestia meets the expectations of all those hobby cooks who want to sear meat and vegetables without sticking anything. Conductivity is key here, too, and correlates roughly with the thickness of the metal: According to Kenji in The Wok: Recipes and Techniques, “it will take about twice as long for a 2-millimeter-thick pan to conduct heat from the burner to the food than a 1-millimeter-thick pan.It is a bio-product, also suitable for vegan cuisine, also suitable for cooking like grilling you can use it to cook excellent American steaks. It was also on the lighter side, which we appreciated when using our chuan to scrape out garlic fried rice into a serving bowl.

Imusa USA WPAN-10018 Non-coated Wok: While this was a perfectly serviceable wok, we found the angular wooden handle difficult to grip.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).
