The Made In Carbon Steel Wok is an all business pan for your kitchen.
Manufactured in France, it comes nicely packaged with a set of instructions on a few simple seasoning steps to get it going. You can season with most high smoke point oils or purchase the Made In Wax, a combination of grapeseed oil, canola oil, and beeswax.
It’s a well-made pan weighting in at 4lbs 6.8oz. Lighter than cast iron but heavier than your stainless-steel fry pans. The 9-inch curved handle makes it easy to manipulate the pan. Unless you’re a bench-pressing line cook you will probably need 2 hands for tossing your vegetables. The 5-inch-wide flat bottom sits nicely above your largest burner. The pan is 4 inches deep and 12 3/4 inches wide and looks big. You may be tempted to load it up but don’t, keep it simple.
The 1 inch wide handle is not coming off and Made In knows it. The pan comes with a non-transferable lifetime warranty.
The 2-millimeter thick carbon steel heats up quickly so use a high smoke point oil like avocado or grapeseed.
It is awesome for stir-fry, sautéing mushrooms, or cooking anything fast with high heat. A pan of this quality is a steal at their price of $99. This pan would make an excellent Christmas gift for someone that loves to cook and wants to explore the great things you can do with stir fry.
