Seasoning Your Wok
To help your carbon steel wok develop a naturally non-stick surface, you’ll need to season your wok before use. This can be done in 4 simple steps. Just give the wok a good scrub with a metal scourer, heat it on a high temperature until it turns dark grey or blue on the inside, let it cool and give the surface a thin coating of vegetable oil, and then heat again until it smokes and then let the smoke disappear. When your wok changes colour again, it is ready to use. If you want to see this in action, we made a helpful video to show you how it’s done.
