Yes it does. Just make sure to only use those outside in a well ventilated area.

Everyone's advice about wokkin' is spot on.

Don't forget to acquire the proper cooking utensils. You can improvise with what you have, but these four that are essential for me are designed specifically for the shape of a wok: ladle, spatula, wire mesh scoop, extra long chopsticks.

Prep. I can't stress that enough.

Wok cooking is a lot of fun, frantic crazy, aerobic.

Bonsai Bistro Stir Fry Wok

This is a video from a restaurant kitchen. The flames are shooting high enough to melt the copper on my pot rack. From the manpan site. I don't know how to post videos, but you can get it off their site.
No home kitchen can even come close.

Wow, that's a crazy video!! That fire was amazing!! I'd love to have flame to work with!

Thanks SOOO much, everyone...your input is very valuable. No luck today buying a wok, but I'm going to check out things online. I see the proper utensils really do seem to make a difference, too.

Hmmm...maybe Santa should come to my house early.

These are great for getting food out of the wok quickly. I use mine a lot, when I'm "just plain cooking".

I have a nonstick wok, it's great. I never have to go very high on the heat and it works well enough. I just couldn't get my regular one seasoned well enough, so everything stuck to the thing. I use my nonstick wok for everything, curries, eggs, stirfry, deep frying small things, tossing/finishing pasta in sauce, taco meat or just about anything.

Like someone said, alot of us have electric ranges and can't reproduce that "jet burner" effect anyway so you aren't gonna use super high heat anyway.
