Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon 5 quart Wok Skillet with Lid

4.9 star rating 26 Reviews


        Finally, a wok perfectly designed for the home cook. Our 5-quart, carbon-steel, flat-bottomed wok heats quickly and distributes that heat evenly for uniform cooking. The domed glass lid seals in liquids, prevents splatters and allows you to see your food when cooking, while also allowing you to steam as well as stir-fry in the wok. The wok’s long handle and helper handle make the wok easy to maneuver, no matter how heavily loaded. We also like this design because it is not too large—many 12-inch or larger woks are difficult to store, so they end up going to the basement, not the kitchen! Pair it with our Wok Spatula.

        Before first use, wash your wok inside and out in hot soapy water, then dry over low heat on your stovetop. To season the pan, heat over high heat until a drop of water evaporates on contact. Add 2 tablespoons neutral oil and swirl in pan over medium heat until interior surface is coated. Add in sliced or chopped onions, ginger or scallions and cook. As they start to soften, spread the mixture over the entire surface of the wok's interior. Continue doing this for about 20 minutes over medium heat, adding oil if the ingredients become too dry or start to burn. Discard the mixture, allow the wok to cool down completely, then rinse with hot water and a soft sponge to remove excess food particles. Heat the wok on low heat until completely dry. Coat lightly with vegetable oil and wipe clean with a paper towel before storing. The seasoning process will change the color of the wok's interior—this is called a patina and will darken with each use. Once seasoned, soap is not recommended for cleaning—it will negatively affect the patina and require re-seasoning.
