Ken Hom Excellence 36cm Carbon Steel Induction Wok / Asian Stir Fry Pan - Large
Made from strong but lightweight carbon steel, offering excellent heat-conduction properties for high temperature stir frying.
Ken Hom Excellence carbon steel, seasoning woks combine practicality with the centuries old tradition that lies at the heart of Chinese cooking, seasoning your wok.
Originally woks, like this one, developed their own non-stick surface from the build up of carbon deposits, a process known as “seasoning”.
This wok must be seasoned before use and will then develop its own non-stick coating over time.
“Many people ask me what my most used item in the kitchen is. My answer is always the same – the Wok – simply because that's really all you need,”
Ken Hom is a celebrated American chef and television-show presenter on the BBC, and when it comes to woks he knows a thing or two!
Surprisingly, woks are hugely versatile pieces of cookware; suitable for stir frying, steaming, pan frying, deep frying, poaching, boiling, braising, searing, making soup and more.
Ken makes his Performance woks from carbon steel, which means they are all the more versatile.
Carbon steel is a material with outstanding heat conduction, able to generate high heat for high speed cooking – an essential part of stir frying.
