Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What is the difference between a Mandarin wok and a Cantonese wok?
The difference is in the style of the handle. Mandarin woks feature a long stick handle, while Cantonese woks have two small loop handles, giving cooks a choice of whichever best fits their style.
What's the difference between a riveted and a welded handle?
A riveted handle is connected by small metal pieces (called rivets) that are crushed between the handle and the pan body to attach them together. This type of handle is more common on copper and aluminum cookware.

For a handle to be welded, the metal must first be melted and then adhered to the pan body. This creates a strong bond that leaves little to no space in between, so bacteria and other food crumbs can’t collect and cause sanitation issues. Both are long lasting solutions for fry and sauce pan handles because they are durable and can withstand heat.
My item arrived coated with a thin layer of oil. What is this oil for, and is it ready for immediate use?
Some carbon steel pans and woks are shipped with a protective oil coating from the factory to prevent them from rusting before their first use. They must be thoroughly washed with warm soapy water to remove all traces of the oil, and then properly seasoned before use.
What is the appropriate lid size for my wok?
While lid size can be a preference based on what you're cooking, you generally want your lid to be approximately 1" - 2" smaller in diameter than your wok. This is so the lid can securely sit inside the rounded edges of your wok.
What is a wok ring used for, and how do I decide which is right for me?
A wok ring is used to turn a traditional range into a wok-friendly range. It serves to stabilize your wok and funnel the heat appropriately around the rounded edges as a wok range would. Generally, you want your wok ring's diameter to be 4" smaller than the wok you are using.

How to Season a Pan

Seasoning your pans enables you to cook great-tasting food with minimal oil, butter, or fat. It also provides a stick-resistant surface, allowing for easy clean up, and will keep your pans from rusting quickly. Check out this video to learn how to season cast iron and carbon steel pans.

For a carbon steel pan, start by washing, rinsing, and drying the pan. Heat the pan on your range on medium to high heat, then add shortening to the pan. Use a clean dry towel to spread the shortening around the interior of the pan, creating an even coat. Remove the pan from the heat, wipe out the excess shortening and let it cool. You can repeat this process up to 3 more times. For a cast iron skillet, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and set aside. Wash, rinse, and dry your skillet. Place the skillet in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and coat the entire skillet with shortening, inside and out. Place the skillet in the oven for 45 minutes with the baking pan on a rack below it to catch any mess. You can repeat this process up to three more times.

    This is a great wok. I was looking for a cheap secondary/backup wok to have on hand, and the price on this was low enough to take a risk. The 12 inch size is on the small side, but is big enough for 2 portions or so. It will not win any beauty contests, but it has it where it counts.
