Product Details

This Iron Wok w/ Wood Handle (IRWC007) is extremely durable and features a wooden handle. Woks are primarily used for stir frying, but can also be used in many other ways, such as in steaming, deep frying, braising, stewing, or making soup. This bowl-shaped pan has several advantages - it spreads heat evenly, uses less oil for deep-frying than a traditional deep-fat fryer, and ensures that sautéed food tossed during cooking stays in the pan and does not end up on the stovetop. A good wok is indispensible when cooking traditional Chinese food, and can put to great use in most commercial kitchens.

Customer Reviews

16" Cast Iron Wok w/ Wood Handle is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this larger wok for making larger serving size dishes and soups. It is a nice size and excellent for making large rice recipes and even stir fries. I did not buy a lid for this wok and wish I had as I make a lot of rice dishes and need the steam for final cooking. It has a wooden handle so you can remove the wok from the stove easily and the wok has good even heating for making stir fries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This wok is a heavyweight steel pan. It is best used on a flame exceeding 30,000 BTUs with multiple burner heads, or a ceramic head, as it dissipates heat rapidly due to its high surface area. That said, it will serve most Asian-style chefs admirably.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product and good for it's price, but wok was unstable on my burner. I know that's what I get for buying a rounded bottom... but would like to see an option to buy a stabilizer for the bottom (so it won't rock) or to have it come with the product. Also shipping was fast and product arrived in good condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wok Maybe a note to anyone buying the wok- it's a fantastic size and weight and handle and value! BUT you need to get the anti-rust compound off the steel before you use it: hot soapy water to start, then medium heat and a rag full of cooking oil. I threw the rag away when I was done it was so black. Otherwise, everything came pronto and as ordered and expected and thank you for my first order!
