Wok Support

Perhaps a silly question but I have a Hoover gas hob currently, as pictured below:-




I would like to be able to use our wok (see pic below) on this, but at the moment the base of the wok keeps sliding about on the pan supports on the hob at the moment.





The base of the wok measures 14cm.

Is there a "wok support" I could get that would hold the wok in place and stop it sliding about?

If so, which support would be best?

Is the wok not stable on the burner on its own?

Welcome to DC! There are rings specially made for woks on gas burners. I don't have a gas stove, but would think the rings are readily available.

I have one of these.



If kind of locks on to the stove top and keeps the wok close to the flame. I like it a lot.

Most of mine have round bottoms so they are not stable.

That's a beautiful tool. Wherever did you find it?

Oops! Saw a similar rig online for $89.00. This is to me, overpriced for a circle of cast iron. I could just as easily take a cheap cast iron pan, drill it, grind it, and come up with as good a product for a quarter of that price.
