Induction hob wok
No one knows what they want until they see it. This is especially true when it comes to technology products - we browse the web for hours, researching different models and features before finally settling on the perfect one. And even then, there's always that nagging doubt in the back of our minds: did we choose the right thing?
A kitchen wok is an essential part of any cook's arsenal. The concave shape allows for even heating and prevents sticking, making it the perfect vessel for stir fries, deep frying, or anything else that needs to cook quickly and evenly.
But with so many different options available on the market, how do you know which one is right for you? And once you've chosen the right wok, how do you use it to get the best results? In this post, we'll walk you through everything you need to know about choosing and using a kitchen wok.
Wok with lid
When it comes to choosing the best cookware for your needs, there are a few things you need to consider. Do you want something that is durable and will last? What kind of heat sources will you be using? What type of cooking do you prefer?
It's time to start shopping for cookware once you've answered these questions. However, there are many different types and brands of cookware on the market, making it difficult to know where to begin. Fortunately, this guide covers everything from materials and construction to special features and cleaning instructions, so you can find the ideal set of pots and pans for your home kitchen.
A wok is a versatile pan that's perfect for creating stir-fries and other dishes. But what if you don't have a wok? No problem! You can use a regular frying pan with a lid to create similar dishes.
Carbon steel wok
The carbon steel wok is one of the most popular pieces of cookware in the world. It's thin, lightweight, and heats up quickly, making it perfect for stir-frying or searing.
But with all of its popularity, there are a lot of misconceptions about how to use it and how to care for it. So we're clearing things up with this post about everything you need to know about the carbon steel wok.
Non stick wok
A nonstick wok is a great investment for your kitchen. If you're not familiar with this type of cooking pan, it's a deep bowl-shaped pan that's designed for stir frying. The nonstick surface makes it easy to cook without using oil or butter, and the curved sides make it perfect for tossing ingredients around.
If you're looking for an easy way to add healthy, delicious meals to your menu, a nonstick wok is a great place to start. We have a wide selection of quality woks available on our shop, so be sure to browse our collection today.
Stainless steel wok
The best quality stainless steel woks, then you need to shop at our store. We carry only the highest quality kitchenware, and our stainless steel woks are no exception. We offer a wide range of sizes and styles to suit all tastes.
A stainless steel wok is a great investment for your kitchen. They are versatile and can be used for many different types of cooking. They are also easy to clean, which is important when you're cooking with oils or sauces.

After selecting the best wok pans at the best prices, we have created 4 quality ranges in our online shop. They contain a wide range of products to meet the specific needs of each of our customers. The four main collections we offer are as follows:

PRACTICAL TIPS FOR THE WOK
Oriental cooking essentially requires the use of a wok. If you have one, then a whole range of wonderful dishes are available. Buying a wok rather than using a skillet will give you more satisfying results when you try the delicious recipes that follow on our blog. The wok is a shallow, bowl-like, curved cooking utensil made of metal with a single long wooden handle or two looped handles on opposite sides of the pan. There are many different types of woks. The appropriate diameter for a family is about 30-35 cm (12-14 inches). It can be made of stainless steel, cast iron or copper, with cast iron being the best choice as it retains heat better, especially when well seasoned. The wok has many advantages over the frying pan. Because of its convex shape, food is easily moved around the wok and stirred (the basis of frying) and cooks much faster. It can easily be tilted if necessary or rotated to easily reach the ingredients. Thanks to the curved sides of the wok, the heat rises and the whole wok becomes a hot cooking surface. This saves fuel and is perfect for quick cooking and stir-frying. Cleaning is no problem as there are no corners or edges in the wok.
There are several other pieces of equipment that will be useful with a wok. When choosing a roof, the most important thing to consider is what material it is made of. This is a metal ring with sloping sides and recesses that facilitate the convection of heat from our modern hobs. The wok is placed in the collar and allows for more even cooking than if it were simply placed on an electric hob. A long-handled spatula is useful for cooking and removing food as the curved edge follows the curve of the wok. When purchasing a wok, be sure to find one with a wooden handle. This will protect your hands from the heat that is produced when using the wok. The wok can be mainly used for stir-frying. A frying strainer or shallow wire basket is useful for removing grease from food, and a steaming trivet will turn your wok into a steamer. Obviously a lid is essential for some wok cooking. It should be domed and fit snugly inside the wok to seal in the flavours while steaming. Many of the wok sets on our site contain all of these additional pieces of equipment, as they are essential to wok cooking if you want to exploit its full potential.
USING YOUR WOK
Before using your wok, it is essential that you culottes your wok as you would any other pan. Wipe the inside and outside of the wok with oiled paper towels and heat it on high in the oven or on the hob. Clean the pan and coat it with a non-stick substance. After the first seasoning, the wok can be cleaned with soap and water, but it should be dried immediately if it is made of cast iron, to prevent rusting. In general, the wok is simply wiped clean and left to darken with use. It is said that the darker the wok, the better the cook, as this shows how often the wok has been used.
The wok is mainly used for stir-frying, a cooking method that originated in China and is still the most recognised form of Chinese cuisine. This method has spread throughout East Asia. In China, it is called Ch'au, which essentially means that one or more ingredients are sliced thinly and evenly and cooked in 1-2 tablespoons of fat. The food is stirred with long bamboo chopsticks or a spatula and seasonings and sauces are added. Stir-frying is often done in stages. This allows foods that have a longer cooking time to be stir-fried, removed and returned to the wok later, and individual flavours retained. The dish is always brought together at the end of cooking in the wok and served as a whole. Peanut or corn oil is usually used to fry the food, but sometimes chicken fat and sometimes lard are used for more delicate flavours.
WOK COOKING AROUND THE WORD
A large frying pan or karahi is used that sits over a hole in a brick or earthen oven. This wok-shaped vessel is used for braising and frying. The famous curry or karahi takes its name from the pan. In Indonesia, a wajan or wok is used over wood or charcoal for curries, rice dishes and quick stir-fries. The same is true in Japan, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia, all of which have been influenced by Chinese cuisine. Even the Mongolian barbecue looks like a wok, as it is a convex shape. You will understand from the above that wok and pan cooking methods are both essential and unique to Asian and Far Eastern cuisine, as they are quick, light, healthy and extremely versatile. The following recipes take you on a magical journey to the Far East, covering soups, starters, meat and poultry, fabulous fish dishes, vegetarian dishes and, of course, rice and noodles, the staples of these countries. So get your wok out and prepare for the feast of flavours that awaits you!
