Capacity: Large Families

Similar to a standard size of many woks, this one is 14 inches in diameter and comes with a metal rack for resting or draining oil from deep-frying and a pair of wooden chopsticks.

The size is generous enough to cook plenty of food for a large family, yet it’s easy to toss the food around to ensure the food is coated with seasoning.

Heating: For All Heat Sources

(Back to Top)

This Scanpan wok can withstand heat up to 500 degrees F, which is higher than most of the woks on the market (between 350 to 400 degrees F), including cast iron cookware. The squeeze-press process applies 250 tons of pressure to mold the melting aluminum to shape the cookware. In addition, a patented ceramic titanium is added to the surface over 30000 degrees C to harden the surface 10 times harder than steel.

It’s suitable for all sorts of heat sources from stove top to oven, including induction heating.

Resistant to scratch and warp, you can cook your dish in this wok without any oil, butter or other seasoning. It’s ideal for those who are interested in a low fat diet. You can have a perfect heat distribution over low to medium heat to save energy from using high heat. 

Scanpan is the pioneer in eliminating PFOA as the non-stick coating. Its own Green Tek non-stick technology provides even heat release and effortless cleanup.

Easy to Use and to Clean

(Back to Top)

While a wok is typically used for Asian stir-fries, you can use this wok for many cooking methods such as braising, browning, searing and simmering.

The wok doesn’t come with a lid. You may want to buy a lid for the wok, especially if you are planning on doing a lot of braising and simmering. I looked around on Amazon and didn’t find a Scanpan wok cover of this size, but there is a glass cover designed for a paella pan that might fit for the wok perfectly (14″).

Cleaning is a snap. Although the wok is tough enough to be dishwasher-safe, it’s still recommended to hand wash it with warm soapy water with a gentle brush or kitchen rag.

Pros and Cons

(Back to Top)

ProsIt’s made of high quality materials. It’s sturdy. With the non-stick surface, food slides and glides in the wok without sticking. The single handle makes it easy to cook and the helper handle on the other side helpful to carry it with both hands when it’s needed. The non-stick material, unlike Telfon-coating, won’t be causing health issue with the wear and tear. You can easily wipe clean the wok with a paper towel. Lifetime warranty gives you a peace of mind and you can pass this wok down to the next generation.

ConsIt’s expensive. You truly will pay for the quality and durability. It’s not best for high heat on the stove top.

Price, Warranty and Where to Buy – Pro Logic Cast Iron Wok

This wok is not cheap. You’ll have to spare a few changes to pay for it. The good news is that it’s under a lifetime warranty.

Amazon and quite a few retail and online outlets all carry Scanpan woks. Pay attention to the size of the wok as a few stores I checked they all had a 12-1/2 inch size with similar price as Amazon for the 14″ wok.
