    This video is great. Very useful information.

    they come with a laquer finish on them that can be a pain to get off. you have to get that laquer finish off first, and then you’ll be able to season it. however, it probably won’t turn out looking like the one in this vid. it took me two days to get that stupid finish off, after that was able to season it properly.

    I am looking for a bole (log, stem, lock of tree) to cut my ingrediances with a cleaver on top of it. I am very confused that after half an hour of searching I can’t find any trader. Maybe it will helps if i would know the original chinese name of it, for typing it into google or asking in my local asia supermarket for it. Is there anyone who knows the chinese name of such a 20 – 30 cm thick stem?

    It is ok to replace the 12″ wok with a 15″ inch. It would require more time to heat a larger wok, and the larger wok is good for a large family that needs to cook more food for a dish. As you mentioned, it would stop more of the splattering. Again, you can work with different sizes to best suit your needs.

  6. wokfusion says:

    The ladle and/or …
    The ladle and/or spatula can be used. When ladle and spatula it is used together to dish out food from your wok to the plate. If you feel more comfortable using the ladle, then you can do so. The ladle allows you to scoop things around the wok. I think that you can flip food in the wok quicker with a spatula since it has more surface area to toss the food around. The flat side of the ladle has less surface area to quick toss and mix the food quickly. Again, this is personal preference.

    why would you want to paint your wok? A wok doesn’t rust if is used and cleaned regularly, the cooking ability is enhanced by the patina that it forms from continually using the wok (the patina acts as a natural teflon and is black so it also absorbs greater amounts of infrared) I have worked with many chefs who use woks regularly and I have never heard they paint their woks. The tip is not is harmful; even if someone manages to find a nontoxic paint, it will affect the flavor of your food.

    I have that same cleaver! I got it in Chinatown in Brooklyn. I’ve had it for like, 8 years, its a perfect and basically indestructable cleaver. I’ve even chopped down small trees in my backyard with it, washed it, and then cut veggies wiht it 1-2-3/

  12. CorpusChristi83 says:

    what you do is rub oil into the pan, and cook it and cook it and cook it, and keep slowly adding oil, and keep cooking and cooking and cooking, and adding more oil and adding more oil until the oil burns into the pan and creates a blueish black seasoning, or “patina” which is basically a carbon steel non-stick coating. This is only necessary with carbon steel woks. it addes authentic flavors and almost a bbq effect if you will.

    I’m surprised to see that there’s not a single mention about the most important component of Chinese cooking equipment- the heat generator. If wan to make Shanghai noodles for instance on your electric kitchen range then you could as well use an Italian recipe for pasta and whatever else because you’ll never get the wok hey flavor. And forget about teflon skillets!

    You probably need to be careful on the type of paint used since there are toxins or toxic elements that may give off into the air. It could absorb into the food and make it unhealthy to eat food with these toxins.

    The purpose of the …
    The purpose of the chopsticks is to control and even distribute the cooking of the food. Chopsticks do not conduct heat since these particular one are made out of wood. The spoon or other metal conducts heat and makes it hot on your fingers and hands. This is the reason to use the chopsticks instead of a spoon.

    Heat up the wok …
    Heat up the wok till the inside turns black. Let it cool down completely. Then wash and scrub the inside of the wok with Bar keepers friend. After doing that a couple of times, the burnt lacquer comes off and the carbon steel will show. Then seasoned it on high heat like the video. Voila, the metal inside of the wok will turned blue . BTW, make sure you wash all the cleaner off completely before you season (Can tell if you wipe the inside with a napkin while your drying the wok over heat)
