The Netherton Foundry Spun Iron Ebonised Wok is one quality piece of stylish cookware. Handmade in Shropshire using age old techniques, it is durable, light and exceptionally heat responsive. Spun to a thickness of only 1mm, it heats up quickly when placed on the hob and cools down quickly when removed, an essential requirement for stir-fry cooking. Made from spun iron it is suitable for high temperature frying and can be used on range cookers, open fires, electric, gas, ceramic, halogen and induction hobs.

• Made in Shropshire, Great Britain
• Pre-seasoned with flax oil for a natural non-stick finish
• Durable 99.1% pure iron wok pan
• Suitable for high temperature frying & browning.
• Handmade British ebonised oak handle covers with brass fixings
• This wok is light and easy to handle
• Features a brass Netherton branded rivet
• Flat bottom. Perfect for range stoves, open fires, electric, gas, ceramic, halogen & induction hobs (heat up slowly to keep flat)
• Unlike their frying pans, the iron wok is spun to a thickness of only 1mm. 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.

Why choose a pre-seasoned wok?
• The 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.

Why use an iron wok?
• Iron woks are tough and can be used at very high temperatures.
• This iron wok is suitable for all types of hobs and grills.
• Iron is a pure, simple metal which is easy to look after & very recyclable.

Care: Before the first use, wash the wok with hot water. Do not use soap or detergent. Dry immediately.

Caution: if using a ceramic or induction hob, increase the heat slowly for the first few uses to prevent buckling. Do not drop hot pans into cold water – this can cause the metal to warp or shatter.

A little note on ebonised wood:
Ebonised hardwood furniture became popular in Europe in the late 1800's when it began to arrive from China. This black look was very fashionable in the Victorian age but fell out of favour in the 20th century. It has however recently been re-discovered as a durable natural finish. Not all ebonising is quite what it seems, some is just paint or dye used to colour the surface black. However, Netherton Foundry use the traditional method of soaking their locally sourced oak in black tea to increase the wood's natural tannin content. They then stain the oak in a solution of iron and traditional vinegar (iron acetate), this turns the oak a deep black colour. The process takes about a week to complete when they coat the finished handles in wax oil.
