Helen's Asian Kitchen Round Bottom Carbon Steel Wok set is the perfect choice for stir frying, stewing, sauteing, steaming, braising, frying and deep frying your favorite Asian recipes. Crafted from sturdy 1.4 millimeter carbon steel, it distributes heat quickly so foods cook evenly. The cooking surface collects a natural patina over time to create the coveted nonstick cooking performance. The natural rubber-wood handle is heat-resistant for comfortable use. Its sturdy riveted and round-bottom design sits securely inside a stabilizer ring for use on gas, electric and induction stove tops. It also hangs for easy storage.
Carbon steel is easily seasoned and maintained to help prevent rust. Successive seasoning and regular use will gradually build a black patina providing a smooth stick-resistant surface, much like a well-seasoned cast iron skillet. The more use the pan gets the darker and more stick-resistant it becomes. Rust will not harm or alter the performance of the wok in any way. Simply scour away the rusted areas and season as instructed. Before first-time use, clean thoroughly, then season to seal the surface and prevent rusting. Full use and care instructions are included along with recipes and a lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects in workmanship. Includes 12 inch wok, cast aluminum stabilizer wok ring, recipe booklet and a 13-inch bamboo spatula.
