Our wok is handmade from carbon steel, which has natural nonstick qualities. As the pan heats, a black film referred to as patina develops. This film is what resists sticking and makes everything you cook slide right out onto your plate with ease. The natural qualities of carbon steel make it heat up fast and remain very hot throughout the cooking process. This will allow you to control the temperature and obtain brilliant results that you simply can't get from other materials like aluminum or nonstick brands. With proper care, your wok will develop and maintain that beautiful rich blackish-blue patina and contribute to the wok's long-lasting performance.
Beautifully handcrafted, our traditional Chinese hand-hammered carbon steel pow wok is made to last. Cleaning the wok is simple and easy using paper towels or dishcloths to wipe it clean. Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners as they will damage the wok's seasoned surface. We recommend that you use a bamboo brush, or soft sponge to gently clean your wok after each use. Please avoid putting your wok in the dishwasher or submerging it in water for long periods of time. Happy cooking!
