Many professional cooks swear by 14" - 16" woks. Woks are essential kitchen tools because they can be used to create delicious dishes like eggs, meats, pastas and stir-fry. Woks originally were created with a round bottom but now come with flat bottom options. The flat bottom can be used on various stovetops, including flat ceramic ranges. 14" - 16" woks are larger than normal, durable and are worth the investment as they last a long time. Many woks are created with carbon steel, which is considered the ideal type of wok due to the fact that it takes less time to process flavors. Woks made out of other materials such as steel take longer to cook the flavors, but are great options for maximizing taste. Many chefs enjoy cooking with woks so much that they use them in place of steel pans for everyday cooking. A great cooking utensil, 14" - 16" woks are large and sturdy enough to fulfill any professional cooking need.
