Cast Iron woks are superior to carbon steel woks in heat retention and uniform heat distribution and also allow to form a more stable layer of seasoning which makes it less prone to food sticking on the pan. Even though cast iron cookware is known to be heavy as well as thick, Joyce Chen's Pro Chef Pre-seasoned Cast Iron Woks are manufactured using a proprietary casting technology that enables a lightweight and thinner walled cast iron product. The technology involves a process where a special alloy combined with a unique tooling creates a cast iron cookware that is less porous and giving it it's natural shape. With this type of wok, Joyce Chen Products was able to put on a handle versus two loop handles which makes it easier to "toss" the food when stir frying. The handles are made from maple wood giving the Pro Chef Cast Iron products that beautifully polished look. These woks are then preseasoned with a natural vegetable oil which contains no chemical additives that will require minimal care and that will last indefinitely. Also the exterior of the pan has a silicone coating to prevent rust from developing and making clean up a breeze. The 14" Cast Iron Wok is flat bottom and can be used on most stove tops.
The pan interior was pre-seasoned at the factory with an all natural seasoning. Before first use, hand was with warm soapy water and after you dry it, apply a very thin layer of vegetable oil to the interior of the pan. A will seasoned pan gets better over time. It will develop a smooth black patina to the surface, which enhances the nonstick and easy-clean features of your cast iron pan. Wash pan after use use. After cooking, allow the pan to before cleaning. Immersing a hot pan in water could cause it to crack. clean with warm water and mild detergent. Never use harsh detergents, scouring powder, abrasives or metal scouring pads since they can remove the interior seasoning and damage the exterior finish. Occasionally re-season your pan by wiping the interior with a thin coat of vegetable oil. Cookware with wood handles are not oven-safe. Do not put cookware in the dishwasher. Wood handles may become hot; oven mitts or potholders may be needed to protect hands.
