Q: What do you use a wok for?
A true staple in any home cook’s cupboard, the wok is one of the most versatile pans out there, proving extremely handy for a number of popular home-cooked dishes. Perfect for a sizzling stir-fry, its large size and high sides allow you to pack in a substantial amount of ingredients.
But that’s not all that can be whipped up within your wok at home. We’re going to go out on a limb and say that you can pretty much cook anything in this integral kitchen pan. From scrambled eggs, mussels and meatballs to halloumi, fajitas and curry, the humble wok pan, especially those with a lid, can take on just about anything!

Q: Are your woks PFOA-free?
Circulon takes pride in our product lines containing no PFOA, including our wok pans. We continue to ensure our cookware is manufactured without the use of this harmful chemical. As always, nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our customers. That’s why we have researched and implemented alternative PFOA-free materials made with safe and effective technologies across our products instead.
Q: How do you season a wok?
Some woks require ‘seasoning’ – no, not with salt and pepper! The technical name for this is creating a ‘patina’, or a protective layer, around the inside of your wok pan, which is enhanced every time you cook with oil. This process helps to get rid of any manufacturing oils that are applied to new woks to initially prevent them from rusting.
Once you’ve cleaned your wok with hot soapy water, dry it and pop it on a high heat until it begins to sizzle. Once your wok has cooled to a touch-safe temperature, use a paper towel to spread an even layer of oil around the inside of the pan. Return the wok to a medium heat until it stops smoking and the colour changes to a darker hue. Once the smoke stops – your wok is successfully seasoned!
