This review is from: Joyce Chen Traditional 14-Inch Flat Bottom Wok Set (Kitchen)
I'm no gourmet cook but, for health reasons, lately I've endeavored to eat healthier. A friend recommended wok cooking and thus began my search for a wok, settling on the Joyce Chen Carbon Steel Wok. I couldn't be more pleased, but keep in mind that you cannot begin cooking out of the box.
It is very important to season the wok properly. I spent several days, on and off, seasoning the wok until I achieved a patina like finish. Seasoning techniques are easy to find with Google. Do not wash the wok in soapy water. Also, ensure that the wok is coated with a oil before storing. I've never had any rust, nor has any food stuck to the wok. Seasoning the wok properly is the single most important piece of advice. Once that task is performed correctly, you're in business.
