The wok is an iconic cooking tool for a wide, diverse array of cuisines around the world. Smithey’s artisan wok design has beauty, functionality and longevity. Its stunning, hammered form is made from a lighter weight carbon steel weighing about 3 lbs. and is designed for high heat cooking and plenty of movement. The flat bottom ensures stability and surface contact, and this pan is suited for a wide range of cooking surfaces - gas, electric, induction, glass cooktops, grill, and open flame. The functional depth makes it ideal for classic stir frys, sautéing, steaming, boiling, and even light frying. This beautiful, functional wok is crafted by blacksmiths in Charleston, South Carolina.
