If you're ever attempted to stir fry heaps of vegetables in a, you'll be familiar with how impossible it is to keep everything in the pan. After all, a skillet's straight, low sides weren't designed to tackle such tasks. Instead, you'll need a wok for all your stir fry and sautéing needs. A great and affordable place to start is with the , which is currently 41% off on Amazon.
The Lodge wok is built with tall, sloping sides and a larger surface area than a typical skillet or sauté pan. Thanks to the durable cast iron, the wok retains heat much better compared to other metals, searing meats and simmering sauces at high heat. It's got large handles, so it can be easily moved from the stovetop to the oven, along with a flat base that fits on top of all cooking surfaces, including glass, electric, and induction.
The Best Wok to Buy for Your Kitchen, According to Grace Young
The Stir-Fry Guru shares the best woks for your cooking space "The goal is to continually toss bite-size ingredients in a small amount of oil in a wok over high heat so that each morsel is constantly exposed to the hot wok," Young says. "The result is a light sear-ing of ingredients that allows them to cook both quickly and uniformly, without burning or charring." It's less about stirring and more about exciting movement and interaction with the hot wok's surface. A wok spatula, with its shovel shape, is great for this, but any metal spatula will do.
Upon arrival, the wok is ready to be used since it's been pre-seasoned with 100% natural vegetable oil, making the coating naturally nonstick. Use the wok to sear, sauté, bake, broil, fry, or grill, and when you're all done, just wash the cast iron with a bit of mild soap, dry with a lint-free cloth, and rub with a bit of neutral oil; this will not only prolong the life of the cast iron but also continuously strengthen the seasoning.

"This is an absolutely wonderful wok," one five-star shopper says. "Most woks have to be held in place when you're stir-frying a meal, and the heat dispersion gets lost on the way up the sides. But this cast iron wok rids a chef of all the little headaches. It does not move at all because of its weight and design, with naturally even heat dispersion all the way to the top because it's cast iron. Best wok ever!"
"I have had at least a dozen woks in my life," another reviewer shares. "Many of these were supposed to be nonstick but most failed. I thought the new Le Creuset one would be the answer, but when I saw the price, the clerk gave me a hint to buy the Lodge one which was far less expensive and worked better. I am glad I followed her advice. It is fully seasoned and does not stick, and even while hot [it] does not have extraordinary hot spots or burn food. If you like to stir fry, you gotta have this!"
