The sides offer a natural heat gradient, ensuring the ingredients at the top don't scorch.

Types Of Woks To Buy For Your Kitchen
- Carbon steel woks: These are known for their ability to stand high heat and flash fry ingredients, lending a delicious seared flavour to your food. Carbon steel woks typically blacken over time through a process called seasoning. This means this stove-top wok develops a natural non-stick coating, releasing food quickly from the pan.
- Non-stick woks: These lightweight options are great for everyday cooking. Food won't stick, making it easy and hassle-free to cook and clean.
- Cast iron woks: If you're after good heat conductivity and longer heat retention, a cast iron wok is a no-brainer. Ideal as a stovetop wok or for oven use, cast iron variants undergo seasoning, are durable and can last up to many years with proper care and maintenance.
- Electric woks: A modern version of the traditional stir-fry pan, these woks heat from electricity instead of a stove. The electric wok is a highly portable utensil you can use outdoors or during a holiday. The cooking process is effortless - you don't have to hold the handle or move the wok around while stirring the ingredients. Electric woks also offer adjustable temperature control, making it a very reliable tool that you can use without worrying about overcooking.
Wok vs frying pan: what is the difference?
A wok has raised edges and a deep profile with a smaller rounded base, whereas a frypan has a large flat base and lower sides. Woks allow better tossing and stirring whereas frypans are suited to recipes that require a flat shape.
How to season a wok?
Cast iron and carbon steel woks need to be seasoned and naturally develop a non-stick coating over time. To season a wok, lightly brush oil onto the surface and hold over low heat, rotate your owl until the entire surface is coated.
What woks do professionals use?
For professional results, a carbon steel wok would be a great choice, allowing you to cook at high temperatures and achieve beautiful flavours.
