Much heavier than traditional steel woks, this solid cast-iron wok absorbs and retains heat at the high temperatures
needed for superior stir-fry cooking. A flat bottom sits the wok securely on a stovetop, gas grill, or charcoal grill,
while two loop handles allow for safe lifting with oven mitts. The wok measures 14 inches in diameter (17 inches with
handles), and 4 inches deep--generous enough for a family-size meal.
The wok must be seasoned before first use to create a nonstick patina that also helps prevent rusting. After washing,
apply a thin layer of vegetable oil and heat the wok for one hour. While the wok can be seasoned on a grill, an oven
works best. Instructions for the seasoning process are included with the wok. After subsequent use, the wok should be
washed by hand and dried before storing. Mr. Bar-B-Q covers the wok with a five-year warranty against defects. --Ann
