Wok Cookers Buying Guide
The wok pan's original Chinese design calls for a curved interior. Whether you choose a flat or rounded base, a wok's deep, sloped sides help keep bite-size pieces of food in the pan while stir-frying. Toss together a healthy, flavorful stir-fry meal in this pan, and your family will think you (ahem) wok on water.
Types of Wok Cookers
Woks come in various sizes and material types. Choose your pan based on the type of stove you plan to cook on. Traditional Asian woks have a rounded base for cooking over an open flame, forcing food to center of the heat source. Gas stoves can handle a round-base wok, but many Americans use a flat-bottom wok for either electric or gas stoves. For the best cooking performance, carbon steel is the most recommended wok material.
A flat-bottom wok works best on an electric stove, as the base sits flat against the burner. If you use a round-bottom wok on an electric stove top, the heat may reflect back onto the heating element and cause damage. Flat-base woks also work well on gas stoves.

Buying a wok will be a fun experience if you know what you're looking for in terms of style, size, and material. Decide whether you want a more traditional wok with two short handles, or a Western-influenced wok with a single long handled. For an element of Asian authenticity, buy a wok with a bamboo handle. Allow time to season the wok before using.
A 10-inch wok is a great size for preparing a stir-fry recipe to serve four or five people, while a 12- to 14-inch pan offers room for bigger stir-fry recipes and other cooking techniques such as deep-frying or braising.
Because of the increased interest in low-fat cooking, some wok manufacturers offer wok interiors with a nonstick coating. Nonstick coating does not work well with carbon steel, but it is a good option for aluminum or stainless-steel woks.
Although a lid is not used when making classic stir-fry, some woks include a lid. A lid is handy if you plan to use a wok as a pan for braising.

Woks have either one long handle or two short side handles. This decision is a matter of personal preference, but one long handle is easier to manage and lift. Some handles are made of a heat-resistant material, making them easier to hold.
It's important to season a wok before using it the first time. Use a light coating of cooking oil, and follow the instructions that come with your wok, as each type has specific seasoning directions.
