Usage for Wok pan from HOT WOK:

since the Hot Wok gas burners can generate up to 4.5kWh, 7.0kWh and 12.0kWh in heating effect, it is important to use oil with a high flash point. We therefore recommend that you see peanut oil or sunflower seed oil.

  1. The HOT WOK Wok pan is protected by a coating, which must be burned off before use. The Hot Wok pan is made from carbon steel - an excellent material for heat distribution. Heat up your Hot Wok pan until it the colour changes to dark.
  1. pour 3-6 tablespoons of oil into the HOT WOK Wok pan and distribute the oil with circular motions for 2 min. It is important that the oil is applied to all areas of the inner surface. Turn off the gas burner and wipe of the pan with a paper towel. Repeat the procedure three times, until there is no residue left on the paper towel.
  1. Clean the HOT WOK Wok pan thoroughly with warm water and a soft sponge, before use. Wipe it dry before cooking.

After preparation, your HOT WOK Wok pan will have changed colour from shiny metal to a darker nuance. This is normal and indication that preparation has been done correctly.

Over time, the HOT WOK Wok pan will become even darker.

The dark layer acts as a non-stick surface. Your Hot Wok pan can easily keep cooked food warm. Leave the Hot Wok pan on the gas burner or place it on a dish mat.

Be aware that the HOT WOK Wok pan is still very hot when serving.
