Cast iron griddles

Woks are commonly used to make Chinese dishes. They are deep bowls with a flat bottom and sloping sides. Woks come in different sizes and materials. The best wok to use is one that is made of cast iron because it heats up quickly, cooks food evenly and retains heat well.

Many places where you can buy kitchenware don’t give detailed information about their merchandise or have been known to just try and sell you the product without any knowledge of what you are looking for.
