Descriptions
[Yamada Kogyosho]
"Yamada Kogyosho" is a well-known manufacturer among chefs for hammered iron woks and frying pans based in Yokohama city. Their special hammering technique makes the iron pans sturdy and functional.

[Pans without wax coating]
Usually, items from Yamada Kogyosho have anti-rust wax coating. The wax coating needs to be burnt off before seasoning. This procedure cannot be done on induction heating and a gas stove with temperature sensor.
To reduce this procedure, we sell pans without anti-rust wax coating on.

[Features]
Woks are an essential tool for cooking Chinese cuisine. The deep round-bottomed shape is perfect for stir-frying. Aside from stir-frying, you can also use for stewing, deep-frying, and steaming.
This durable hammered woks can be used on high power gas stoves. The 1.6mm thick iron would retain and transfer heat evenly on home use gas stoves too.
Since the wok is deep, a separately sold wok ladle is recommendable for stir-frying.

[Preparation before first time use]
1. When you purchase the item, there is oil on the pan to prevent rust. Please wash thoroughly with kitchen detergent to take the oil off. After washing, please wipe and dry the pan completely by heating up the pan.
2. Please season the pan. "Seasoning" is to heat up the pan with some oil and stir-fry vegetable scraps on low heat until it browns. Make sure that the oil covers the whole surface of the pan. This seasoning process takes away the smells and remains of iron, and prevents it from rusting as it creates a layer of oil coating.

[How to care]
1. Please wash the pan right after use instead of leaving with food on it because the salt and acid from food could potentially damage the pan and create small holes or cause rusting.
2. Wash the pan with water (lukewarm is preferable) and a natural brush. Do not use kitchen soap to keep the oil coating on the pan. Also, do not use a metal brush since it will make scratch on the surface.
3. After washing, please make sure to heat the pan again to let the water completely evaporate. Remaining of water can cause rust.
