This is a traditional hand-hammered carbon steel wok with a round bottom. Featuring two metal loop handles, this Cantonese Style Wok is an essential piece of cookware to add to your collection if you are looking to create some ‘wok hei’. Much like our other carbon steel woks, this 17″ Cantonese wok is a tremendously popular tool for Asian cooking and Asian cuisines. Used correctly, it can provide an authentic, unique smokey taste to your dishes that cannot be achieved using any other cookware or cooking method. Carbon steel woks transfer heat well, which gives the cook the ability to heat up the food extremely quickly without stewing or boiling. This is perfect for creating crunch stir fry vegetables, or creating dishes such as char kway teow (Chinese stir fried noodles).
This carbon steel, Cantonese wok has a diameter of 17 inches (17″ or 43.18cm) and a depth of 5 inches (5″ or 12.7cm) making it perfect for medium scale parties, catering events and even bigger family gatherings. A wok of this size will cook for approximately 5-8 people in one serving. An 17″ wok is also versatile enough for medium scale catering such as food market stalls, food trucks and street markets.
