Wok - stainless steel or carbon steel

2house67's picture

Hi,

I have a carbon steel wok that works great and have always had good results with it.  However, I need a larger wok than my 14" carbon steel.  The only wok that I could find that is larger is a Strauss Tango Stainless Steel Wok.  Has anyone used a stainless steel wok and had good results?  It is a good wok, (if price is any indicator of quality).

 

Any thoughts on this.  I don't want to use it and be disappointed.  Thanks.   Josie

Well here are some on Amazon. For you in Denver I would go over to Federal Blvd (I think) to the HUGE and wonderful VIET market and look there, and if not there, at some of the other asian stores. I got the cover to my 14" at an asian grocery here in my town.

 

WELL, it strikes again. I can't post the link for you.  Just search on Amazon. They are about $20 and are the kind of carbon steel that I have that is seasoning wonderfully.

Try   http://www.wokshop.com/store/main.php

I think they are the best place to buy from.  When I was looking for a wok i did a lot of research and they kept coming up at or near the top.  I had a trip coming up to San Francisco, so I put off my purchase to stop at their shop. It was fairly smallish, but PACKED floor to cieling with everything for Oriental cooking, eating and decorating.  I spoke to the owner, who took time to ask me questions and finally directed me to a nice 14" carbon steel wok that was not expensive at all. I also bought a few other things while there.

Under WOKS they have "home" woks up to 16" and they also have a commerical sub section with woks 18" - 32" if you need them in that size. They sell carbon steel, stainless, cast iron, nonstick, minis and hand hammered.
