FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / Anyone Use A Wok Here?

Been thinking of getting one for a long time.
Now that my favorite local Chinese joint closed and the one I'm going to now has a dragon lady for an owner I'm thinking of doing it myself.

I know that the hand hammered ones are the way to go and they need to be thoroughly seasoned prior to use.

Any recommendations for brands, tips, advice etc.?
thanks in advance

Yes, and keep them lightly oiled between uses; we wrapped ours in an oiled dishtowel.

CO2 ... is there anything it can't do?

This is the one I've been using for years -- it seasoned very well and is comfortable to use.

My stove is an electric glass cooktop so I needed the flat bottom. I've used both -- this and a round bottom version on my previous gas stove. I prefer this one.

Wok this way

If I could only own one pan it would be a wok. You can cook anything in one.

Occasioanlly, not often. I agree with Juice. The Mrs uses cast iron whenever she can.

I have one like NSR.

Keep well seasoned and oil lightly after use and all is good.

I use one too... great for stir fries. You can cook a lot of vegetables and add anything you want to add after that... noodles, pasta, meat, fish...

Very handy to have.

Cast Iron, spun, flat bottom...
Can be used on my ridiculous glass topped stove.

That makes it ok.

I have one. Mostly to cook when I was dating a girl back in '13. I have no idea how to use it. I just put rice and stuff in it with oil and cook it.

I picked up a nice wok around 25 years ago at a church rummage sale. It was a little rusty but that was easy to rectify. I have been using it to make stir-fry meals ever since. As I recall, I purchased it in the final hour of the sale when you could buy anything you could fit in a bag for a buck. The other things I put in the bag are long forgotten but the wok will be passed down to one of my kids when I am gone. it's indestructible.

I have a couple, both are fairly old. One is kind of small, 10” with a wood handle that unscrews, i got it primarily for camping but use it around the house too.

My cookware is all over the place, mostly blacksteel, cast iron, copper with a few odd stainless steel pots like my largest reducing pan.

I've been retired for 5 years. A wok sounds too much like work at this point.
