I am asking you to help me find the High Quality Wok so I can cite my daily stir-fry bible. I want to buy it on Amazon but the products sold on Amazon are very deceptive. I don’t trust their reviews.
I find all cookware to be harmful no matter what, it all leaks, nothing is indestructible. Proof: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/002461.htm
I WANT to choose less harmful cookware in the following in order:
1. Iron or Carbon Steel Wok
2. Enamel Cast Iron for Stir Fry
3. Any other alternatives that are not more harmful, like Teflon, Ceramic, Copper, Aluminum, Lead, etc.
There simple rules:
1. One cookware for stir-fry for 1 person, I don’t want a small *** cookware for toothpick people.
2. For electric stove-top, with coil tubes. No Round Bottoms cookware, seriously, do you want me to burn my house down?
3. No stupid add-ons, keep it simple, what am I, Martha?
Here are my results from my research.
The Wok Shop's Own 14" Flat Bottom Carbon Steel Handhammered Pow Wok w/ Metal Hollow Handle (Round Bottom in Photo
This one is probably homemade China crap that did not pass factory tests. Looks good on paper but don’t know how well it would do on stove burner
1. Amore Kitchenware Flamekiss 12" Red Ceramic Coated Nonstick Wok w/ Glass Lid
It’s ceramic with high ratings, it says no heavy metals used in the manifesting process and environmental friendly 100% PTFE and PFOA free coating. What the hell man, I see a few people complaining that this product is worse than Chinese woks because it does not last after a couple of months of extensive cooking.
2. Tamahashi 410-179 Iron Chef Chen Kenichi Wok and Ladle Set
From Iron Chef TV show, How small this this work? Looks good for toothpick people. Probably made in Toy-r-us factory in Japan with crap quality. Maybe I should get this one instead?? www.amazon.com/dp/B0010DEQMY
3. Asian Origins Natural Carbon-Steel 12-Inch Stir-Fry Pan
Looks professional, simple and to-notch. Probably too small for 1 person. Cons: Low sides that flare outward, instead of up at a steeper angle. Not too bad is it?
4. Summit Kogyo Japanese Iron Wok, Single Handle, Black, 14.17
Wow this one might be too high, What am I going to cook with this? Tomato oatmeal?
5. Joyce Chen 22-0050, Pro Chef 12 Inch Peking Pan Uncoated Carbon Steel
Not sure if Joyce Chen’s company is Trolling. Joyce Chen was a somewhat famous stir-fry chef who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease for using crappy aluminum cookware. Unless I want Alzheimer’s I would avoid Joyce Chen crapware.
6. Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 12" Stir Fry & Cover
Very deceptive, nice try, using aluminum inside with a non-aluminum surface. What if my toddler threw a ninja turtle toy and dented it? Then we all an Alzheimers' Party?
7. How about Cookware made in Germany? Like this below: the Ozeri Brand
The 12 Inch sounds good! This is a special kind of stainless steel. Their products are made to last! Is it true?
Finding cookware is like choosing a high quality sword that will last in many battles. What I have listed above are bookmarks that I think I might buy. Please help me find a very best quality stir-fry cookware that I should buy. If it is better than a Wok, I would like that too. Any help will be most appreciated.
