This heavy 14-gauge wok is an easy and fun to use. The natural, blond, wooden handle and side spool handle allows the cook full command of the wok. The flat bottom wok is designed to sit directly on an electric stove to take advantage of all the heat. Wok cooking is done with high heat. The flat bottom wok also works very efficiently on a gas stove. If cooking with gas, the same wok is available in round bottom. Wok measures 4" in depth. Cooking recommendations: 12" for up to 5 people, 14" for 6 to 12 people, and 16" for over 12 people. Must be seasoned.
Top Customer Reviews
This wok has a rounded bottom, which is preferred by many cooks, but it is available from same vendor in flat-bottomed version which is more stable and easier to use, particularly on an electric stove. We use this round-bottomed version on a gas stove with steel grated burners and it works well.
"Wok Hei" is that Chinese restaurant flavor that is difficult to replicate at home unless you have the right stuff.
I use this wok along with a 35,000 BTU propane burner. (outside, of course) The bottom of my wok is literally blue in color because of the intense heat. I can make Chow Fun, Lo Mein, and fried rice BETTER than the local take out places. (because I use less oil and higher quality meats/veggies)
I thought the helper handle would be a good idea, but it turns out it is not. The wood on the helper handle is getting charred from the heat of the high output burner. This is why it gets a four star rather than 5 star review. Learn from my mistake and order one without the helper handle.
You NEED a high powered burner for this to work. It has to have enough output to keep the bottom of the wok super hot so your food doesn't stick. On a regular range, you can heat the wok until it smokes, but once you throw in the food it'll cool down and your food may stick. To add insult to injury your dinner will be steamed and not stir fried. You know the wok is hot enough when liquids don't collect at the bottom because water from veggies and juices from meats are immediately boiled off as soon as it touches the super hot seasoned surface.
Also - never buy an electric or teflon coated wok. Electrics will never maintain the heat, and the teflon coating will release toxic fumes when heated to the temps required for "real" stir fry.
Since I'm not feeding a football team the 14" should suit my needs just fine.
