A Wok is the Asian equivalent of a Frying Pan or Skillet. The best traditional Woks are High Carbon Steel which need Seasoning but build up a protective patina and can last for generations. Non-Stick Woks are available with all the benefits and problems of non-stick.

Culinary Uses

It has high, sloping sides that allow the chef employing a Stir Fry to move some of the cooking product higher to get up and away from the heat temporarily.
