GET YOUR STIR-FRY ON WITH THESE INCREDIBLE CARBON STEEL WOKS...


Have you ever had Chinese food in a restaurant and though, "Wow, I would sure love to know how to make this at home." Well, wonder no more. With these incredible carbon steel woks, you can make your favorite Asian dishes within the comfort of your own home. However, if you're a beginner and don't know where to start, fear not. We did the homework for you and found the best 14 inch carbon steel woks with a flat bottom on the market just for you!

When it comes to choosing a wok, there are a couple of options. Flat bottom woks work well in conventional kitchens. Since most kitchens cannot accommodate open flame gas ranges stove tops or outdoor wok burners, flat bottom woks allow you to cook your favorite Asian cuisines on a Western electric range cooker without the use of a wok ring.

However, the only caveat is that electric range cookers tend to not get as hot as open flame gas range stoves. So, be sure to check what recipes you are cooking and make sure they don't require high heats for cooking.

WHY CARBON STEEL?

Woks can come in many different shapes, sizes, and materials. Some are made from stainless steel, aluminum, and cast iron. However, the most commonly used and worn by professionals is carbon steel.

Carbon steel is extremely sturdy yet very light in weight making it easy to move about when cooking. Plus, it is easy to clean and season and doesn't deteriorate or oxidize like other metals. Also, carbon steel is a very effective conductor, meaning it heats up very quickly and stays hot while cooking.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR WORK

When using a brand new wok, it is very important you clean it properly before its first use. Here are some easy steps to clean your new carbon steel wok before seasoning:

  • check
    Fill wok 2/3 full of water.
  • check
    Place on stove and boil water for 8-10 minutes.
  • check
    Pour out water and run under cold water.
  • check
    Using a strong scrub pad, scrub vigorously to remove the factory protective coat.
  • check
    Rinse the wok immediately with water and wipe dry

After you finish these steps, you are ready to season your wok!
