This Bayou Classic flat bottom wok is traditionally designed with carbon steel construction, a spun finish, and riveted handles. The cooking surface disperses heat quickly and evenly making it perfect for discada and stir fry.
I received my wok today as my other one was lost long ago. This is even better than my former wok at a great price. In another review a patron mentioned the petrolium product that you have to wash off. I am jeweler and know that carbon steel must have some kind of oil to prevent rusting after production. The product will rust without this protection - which is another reason for seasoning it when you receive it. I also always hand dry my stainless steel and don't let it air dry. As manufacturers are not likely to use a jewelers wax or a minwax (which you wouldn't want to cook with either, even though it smells better) it will arrive with a petrolium odor. Simply wash the pan with warm soap and water several times and season the pan. I cannot wait to break out my wok recipes! I'm going to get two more for my kids for Christmas!
I make stir-frys all the time and had a nonstick wok previous but as it was beginning to peel away, I was in need of a new one. A carbon stell flat bottom is the best to get. Recieved very fast and was wrapped in plastic with oil as expected (any good one will arrive this way so that it doesn't rust) You can clean with soap and water the first time only-after that simply wipe clean and the flavor will continue to develop (kind of treat it like a cast iron pan). Season before first use with peanut oil, fresh garlic, fresh ginger, and chives. Don't put any acids such as juices or vinegar in your stir fry sauce the first few uses as it will take away some if the oil. Carbon steel can be oil hungry the first few time so keep that in mind. I have used this probably ten times now and the flavor it produces in my stir fry is amazing! I have already reccommended this to firends and family!
I received a bayou steel wok which was enclosed in a plastic bag laced with a gasoline substance . I called overstock.com and returned the wok. Do not send me any money for I will not be ordering from you again.
Got a few questions for you.
Does your measurement of 15.5 inches include the handles? If yes, how many inches across the brim without handles?
Does your measurement of 4 inches in height include the handles? If yes, how high is it without handles?
What gauge steel is the pan composed of?
Does the pan need seasoned?
