Do You Use a Wok to Cook Chinese Food?
- I use a 14 inch hammered steel wok that has never seen soap & water after initial cleaning. It is a GREAT way to enjoy Chinese food.

Using a wok
- Of course! And in fact I use one of my three woks for many other things as well. I have even used one of them as a gold pan in the British Columbia interior on the Similkimeen River. Use one as a steamer with a bamboo basket, use to make soup, even used to put the fruit for Christmas cake together! A wok is one of the most versatile cooking utensils ever invented. Trust the Chinese! Cheers, Old Doug in BC

To Wok or Not
- I definitely prefer using my electric wok (with lid) for doing stir fried preparations. I appreciate the fast temp. control and it also has lower temp. zone up sides to reduce cooking rate, unlike a skillet.
China is near and i love world cooking.
- I'm from India and in the business of wines. a wok is a simple contraption which rusts if not used. Heat your rusted wok throw some oil, remove and wash with soap n water. chinese food has """TO BE COOKED WITHOUT REDUCTION OF HEAT FROM START TO FINISH""", don'tttt forget tha'ttttt. all your raw ingredients incl of sauces have to be "ready" before u start cooking. Chinese cooking has a lot to do with the nose and then the taste. eat the food a.s.a.p. it is cooked for optimum satisfaction.
