Traditional Cast Iron Wok

Traditional Cast Iron Wok
A very traditional design that has been used in the Chinese countryside for centuries. Now it is available in the U.S. through the Wok Shop. Round bottom only and 4-1/2 inches in depth. Small metal handles. Retains heat, cooks evenly, quickly and efficiently and imparts the Chinese "wok hee" (wok flavor). Must be seasoned. Made in China.

Available in 4 sizes: 13, 14 16 and 17 inches, or as a 5-piece set with the wok, an aluminum lid, stainless steel spatula, wok ring and bamboo cleaning whisk.

Do you need wok ring ($2.95) to stabilize this round-bottom wok on the stove?
