Hand made using a two stage process. First we spin the body shape, then we fly press the dome shape into the base of the wok. Each one is unique.
Unlike our frying pans, we spin this iron wok to a thickness of only 1mm. We do this to ensure that the wok. heats up quickly when placed on the hob and cools down fast when the heat is removed, an essential requirement for stir-fry cooking.
This wok is light and easy to handle.

Lids for woks:
We make an oven safe lid for this wok ,
however please be aware that this wok will not be 100% round as its hand formed. So, if you want a "sealed" style lid, this won't be for you.
The lid is useful if you wish to steam food or prevent splashing whilst cooking but it wont be an concentric fit to the wok.
Why choose a pre- seasoned wok ?
The edible Sussex flax oil coating is easy to wash & naturally non-stick. It is ready for immediate use.
No chemicals or PTFE are used in the coating of the wok.
Coating can be simply restored at home, time after time.

What’s special about OUR spun black iron pans?
Serious cooks and professional chefs love the way that black iron pans heat evenly and give great cooking performance.
The more you use your pan the better it gets as the seasoned patina develops.
A couple of handy tips:
- If you are cooking meat or fish - oil the food, not the pan
- Be patient; allow the food to cook before trying to turn it over.
- Don't fry food straight from the fridge, allow it to come up to room temperature.
The pan bodies are spun by hand, so each one is slightly different. They will not all be as flat as a billiard table.
If you do want to keep it as flat as you can, then follow these simple guidelines.
If your pan has oak handles, the grain on every piece is unique and each one is branded by hand. They are like fingerprints, no two are identical.
Love your pan and follow our instructions for re-seasoning. Oven seasoning is kinder to the pan than hob top seasoning and it also give a nicer looking finish.
We suggest that you only use hob top seasoning, if your oven is too small for your pan or you are re-seasoning your wok.
Your pan will develop with use and, if cared for, will age beautifully and be a friend for life.
