Yoshikawa Cook-Pal Ren Beijing Wok 吉川·鍊·北京鍋
Beijing Woks from the COOK-PAL range by Japanese manufacturer YOSHIKAWA are outstanding pieces of cookware. The advantages of YOSHIKAWA Woks at a glance:
Lighter than cast iron
YOSHIKAWA Beijing Woks are made from carbon steel and they are more than 50% lighter than conventional cast iron. That makes handling easier and more convenient. In addition, the light YOSHIKAWA Woks heat up much faster than heavy cast iron.
YOSHIKAWA Woks do not need seasoning. A special heat treatment, originally developed for the automotive industry, gives YOSHIKAWA woks a dark, extremely hard oxide layer. This layer „absorbs“ oil perfectly and ensures great cooking performance right from the start.
The afore-mentioned oxide layer also gives YOSHIKAWA woks a great rust-resistance. Proper use and care provided this wok will not rust.
YOSHIKAWA Woks are completely free from artificial coatings of any kind. That makes them extremely durable and log-lasting. Using metal kitchen utensils is no problem either.
* For best cooking results this wok should quickly be conditioned with oil before every use. To do that just put some oil into the wok, spreading it evenly, then slowly heat up the wok. For more information refer to instruction manual.
** Please DO NOT EVER heat up this wok on maximum heat when using it on an electromagnetic cooker (induction cooktop). Instead ALWAYS pre-heat it on low heat before increasing heat gradually. That gives the material more time to spread the induced heat and to expand more evenly. NEVER use the power / booster setting. For more information refer to instruction manual.
