New Flat Bottom Carbon Steel Wok

Model No 731W316

Now available in the US



    Dear Ronessa,
    It won’t work properly. Round bottom woks are for gas and open fire (or concave induction), and flat bottom woks are for all flat electric stoves.

    Hi, I just received my birthday wok. I have an electric stove and the wok has a round bottom. Will it not work on an electric stove?


    Dear Marge, thank you for your comment.
    It is easier to stir fry, to toss the food in a round bottom wok. Also, the heat is more centred in a round bottom wok. And round bottom wok makes you feel you are cooking in the real wok :) We do not see any other significant differences.

    What is the difference in cooking with the flat versus round bottom carbon steel wok? I’m a total newbie but very excited about using a wok instead of a generic frying pan. I’m kind of old-ish and am desiring to re-connect to the cooking spirit I used to have. I am in a small apartment with electric burners on the small stove top. I had always gone to the Illustrious Chicken-Vegetable with Red Wine and Custom Spice for the best I had done. It was the joy of the week for my one son. He will freak out (good kind!) if I should have a Renaissance in Real Food cooking. Thanks!
