What if my Wok isn’t nonstick anymore?Updated 10 months ago

Your Wok’s seasoning may have deteriorated, but no big deal; we can help! Here’s what to do if you need to start building a new one:

  1. Place your clean, dry Wok over medium heat for a few minutes to warm up.
  2. Use a clean towel or paper towel to rub a few drops of a high-smoke point oil, such as canola, grapeseed, soybean, or vegetable oil, into the Wok interior.
  3. Continue wiping away the excess oil while it’s over the heat (your Wok surface should appear dry instead of oily or wet). It may smoke lightly, which is fine!
  4. Remove your Wok from the heat and allow it to cool.
