Woks & Stir Fry Pans
Ask any good chef the key to making the perfect stir-fry and they will tell you it is all about having the right pan for the job. Whether you are looking for the more traditional carbon steel wok, the more modern non-stick stir-fry pan or the ever-popular stainless steel wok varieties, Matchbox has the ideal cookware for the job.
Better than a plain frying pan, woks and stir-fry pan are designed with a larger surface area for optimal cooking. Choose a pan with a heavy construction to ensure heat is transferred all the way up the sides of the pan.
Keep in mind that whatever wok you decide to choose there will be different care and usage instructions that you should follow to gain the full benefits of unstinting your chosen pan. Carbon steel, for example, required seasoning prior to its first use, this prevents the steel from rusting and creates a natural non-stick surface.
