Product description


Product Description

This stylish Wok from Le Creuset is the ultimate in cooking equipment. Made from cast iron, it heats up to incredibly high temperatures and retains that heat for long periods of time. Available in a range of other colours, this wok features cast handles, a toughened-glass lid with Phenolic knob and an enamelled exterior. The inside of the Wok has been left untreated, and will form its own 'patina' over a period of time.

The Le Creuset cast iron Wok serves all the requirements of authentic Chinese cuisine. The deep round shape is ideal for stir-frying where foods are quickly cooked in small amounts of oil, moving them up the cooler sloping sides to keep hot while other foods are cooked in the hotter temperatures at the base.

Ideal for stir-frying, braising, boiling, steaming and deep frying. The cast iron Wok is the essential kitchen classic from Le Creuset, suitable for all heat sources.

Fired at temperatures of 840 degrees Celsius, the smooth enamel finish of Le Creuset cast iron is durable and hygienic. This means that everything you stir fry, braise or steam in a Le Creuset piece will taste just as good as you intended. It also means your dishes will keep looking good from the hob to the oven and from the oven to the table.

Satin Black Cast Iron Facts

Satin black enamel can be found on skillets, grills, grillits, woks, tagines and a number of round and oval casserole dishes.

Satin Black enamel has a smooth satiny feel to it, but it is not as glossy or smooth as other lighter enamel finishes. It has been especially designed for higher “surface” temperature cooking – which is not the same as simply using a piece on a high heat. With cast iron, higher surface temperatures can be achieved by allowing any piece to heat through evenly on a medium setting.

Satin black enamel will keep its good looks and allow a ‘patina’ (a brownish black film) to build on its surface with continued use. A patina is the result of the oils used for cooking, as well as the natural oils and fats from foods, baking on to the hot surface. The patina should not be cleaned off as it enhances the cooking performance and the release of foods. It also allows reduced amounts of surface oiling.

With the higher surface temperatures achieved during frying, grilling and searing, some elements in the food i.e. sugars and enzymes, cause caramelisation to take place on the outside of the food. This not only aids the retention of moisture and flavour, but also produces the delicious sear lines on grilled meats or fish, or the slightly crusty exterior on a seared steak.

Le Creuset Cast Iron

Hand made in France since 1925, each piece is made from a unique mould into which molten iron is poured, this creates a unique piece, which is, then hand finished and subjected to strict quality checks. Le Creuset offers a lifetime guarantee on all cast iron (except non-stick items which carry a 10-year guarantee). You will feel the difference as our cast iron is 9 percent lighter than the leading competitor and with a perfectly flat base it is great for all hobs including glass and ceramic. It also distributes heat more evenly ensuring there are no ‘hot spots’.

The cover on the Wok transforms this pan to a truly multi cooking pot for braising, steaming and boiling.

The joy of using the Le Creuset Wok is the wide variety of cooking techniques one can achieve. With deep lid braising, boiling, steaming as well as an open pan for stir-frying or deep frying. Le Creuset cookware is available in a wide range of colours that will suit both your kitchen and dining table.

Energy Efficient
Once hot you will require only a low to medium heat setting to maintain a good cooking performance, they can even be removed from the heat leaving the food to cook in it’s own heat. These heat retention properties mean that a Le Creuset dish will keep warm for longer at the table.

Care and Use:

Before first use: remove all labels. Wash the pan in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. The satin black surface does not require seasoning, therefore it is ready for immediate use.

Seasoning the Wok: before use is not strictly necessary but helps coat the surface to prevent food from sticking. With use, the seasoned surface will darken further - it is said that the darker the surface, the better it is to cook on.

To season, first wash the Wok in hot soapy water and scrub gently. Dry thoroughly. Place it empty on a medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and rub this all over the inner surface. Continue heating for 10 - 15 minutes then wipe off the excess oil with absorbent kitchen paper. Cool, then repeat again with more oil. Wipe again and cool. The Wok is then ready for use.

Cleaning: Once seasoned, the Wok should not be scrubbed or washed in hot soapy water - otherwise the process will need repeating. Generally, if it is rinsed under hot running water while still warm, any residues will be removed and harsher treatment will not be necessary. If light scouring is needed, a Chinese bamboo cleaning brush or washing up brush may be used. After cleaning, dry thoroughly by standing over a low heat for a few minutes.

How to use:

Le Creuset cast iron cookware can be used on ALL heat sources including gas, electric solid or radiant plates, vitroceramic glass, induction and range ovens fired by gas, oil, coal or wood.

When using any glass topped stove, always lift the pan on and off, or across the surface. Never slide the pan, as this may cause damage to the base as well as the glass.

Always match the pan base size to the stovetop heat zone to maximise efficiency and prevent overheating of the pan sides or damage to the handles. Gas flames must always be confined to the base area and NEVER extend up around the sidewalls of the pan. Long handles should be positioned safely so they do not overhang the front of your stovetop or over other heat zones.

For stirring comfort and surface protection use Le Creuset heat resistant silicone utensils, heat resistant plastic or wooden tools. Do not knock utensil on the rims of cookware, this will eventually damage the enamel.

Note: Do not cut foods directly on any enamel surface.

Place hot pans on Le Creuset silicone mats, wooden boards, or trivets. Never place a hot pan directly on an unprotected surface. We recommend using Le Creuset oven mitts for lifting hot pans at all times.

Electric hand held beaters or mixers should not be used in any cookware. Permanent damage to all surfaces will be caused.

Cleaning Satin Black Enamel

Do not attempt to remove the patina (the brownish black film), which is produced on a satin black surface. This enhances the cooking performance and food release from the surface.

Always cool the hot pan for a few minutes before washing. When possible rinse the pan in hot water and wipe over the surface with a damp cloth.

To remove stubborn or sticky residues fill the warm pan with warm water and leave to soak for 10-15 minutes. Wash, rinse and dry in the usual way.

A washing up brush can be useful to remove small food deposits, or for cleaning between the ribs on grills. Do not use any scourers or abrasive cleaners on the cooking surface.

Exterior marks, such as burnt on fat deposits, can be lightly scoured using a nylon pad, or can be cleaned off with regular use of the Le Creuset Pots and Pans cleaner.

All metal handled pans can be washed in the dishwasher but this greatly reduces the build up of the patina. As a result woks, grills and skillets will require oiling for a longer period. Always allow a dishwasher cycle to complete before opening the door. An incomplete cycle retains moisture in the machine and damage to the pan may occur.

Maintain the tightness of all handles and knobs by checking and re-tightening them regularly. Le Creuset enamelled cast iron is extremely durable, but it may be damaged if accidentally dropped or knocked against a hard surface.
