The 26" and up wide woks are large woks designed especially for restaurant and other commercial kitchens where large amounts of stir-fry and other fried food are required. These woks are also capable of fitting the larger bamboo steamer baskets as well as deep-frying baskets, making them versatile enough to prepare a large range of dishes. The 26" and up wide woks are often of Cantonese or Mandarin design and made from a heavy-duty iron or steel. Some of them are hand-hammered in the traditional way, while others are manufactured using computerized methods. Both types are very durable and made for the high demands of the commercial kitchen.
