Andrew Zimmern Chushi Enameled Cast-Iron Wok with Lid, 14.5-inch : The Andrew Zimmern enameled cast-iron wok is a home chef's dream, with the versatility to brown, braise, saute, sear, fry and boil. With durable even heating from the bottom to the top, and a smooth rounded, matte-finish enameled interior, this 14.5-inch cast-iron wok with lid is a workhorse. Flat exterior base rests perfectly on every cooktop, including glass, ceramic, halogen and induction, without using a wok ring. The wok's sides distribute heat evenly and let you easily toss or turn shrimp, poultry, pork or beef. This heavyweight Andrew Zimmern cookware is ideal to sear and finish entrees in the oven. Domed, enameled carbon-steel lid circulates moisture, to fully capture all the rich flavors of entrees and sides. Quickly deep fry hors d'oeuvres and prevent splatters with snug-fitting, matte-finish lid. Stay-cool, cast 18/8 stainless-steel knob for safe grip. Wok and lid are oven-safe to 500 F. Includes recipe. Never needs seasoning. Hand wash. "This custom-designed wok will cook virtually everything. This enameled beauty is tough, durable and built for every operation you can imagine. I'll make a bouillabaisse in this pan one week, and a braised lamb shoulder the next. Let this pan preheat, then wok toss a classic stir fry dish. Woks are truly all-purpose pans," states chef Andrew Zimmern. Chef, food writer and television personality Andrew Zimmern has traveled the world for decades, experiencing culture through food.

I have only used my new Andrew Zimmern wok a few times but it far out does any wok I have ever owned. This is my new go to wok for everything. Heavy and holds the heat well. It's very deep so I can cook for a crowd and still have room for extra's. The small flame touch area is great as there are no cold area's on this wok. Great workmanship to. Came very well packaged and didn't need any pre seasoning. Love This Wok.

I love tyhis product. I have been cooking eggs for over 50 years now and they have never been easier to do. I have had many failures - green hard boiled eggs, over done soft. but this makes the eggs perfect every time. I live down the streeet from and egg rnch so our eggs are fresher then most. The shells DO NOT STICK to the hard boiled eggs at all. I can now always be proud to serve my develed eggs without having to redue to make them perfect and watching the pot. Thank you Chefs.
