If you don't live in the US, where do you live? It might be easier to suggest an alternative if we knew. I use Lagostina Stainless Steel cleaner, when baking soda on a damp rag doesn't work.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

Hi everybody i am the thread starter , please help llook at this wok. I am not sure if it's Aluminium or Stainless steel. The fact is - it develops black stain like the photo VERY VERY EASILY. I intended to fry an egg with sunny side up , immediately after I throw the egg into the wok it builds up the black stain VERY QUICKLY!!!!! I am very frustrated.... I still remember I could fry a lot of things without building up any stain. I only put the food onto the wok when the wok and oil is hot enough which could even give fumes.

sure looks like a stainless steel to me.

>>Until recently the stainless steel wok never had a problem . . .
then quite obviously something has changed.
the questions posed in previous posts are still valid. things that could have changed:
the cooktop / stove / heat source
the oil
the technique
the egg - if it's not "just egg" then possibly
wok surface
or "all food" - tad unlikely all food changed at the same time.

>>I only put the food onto the wok when the wok and oil is hot enough which could even give fumes.
for a sunny side up egg (or any egg for that matter) a pan at the oil smoke point temperature is way too hot. not much question about why the egg is burning onto the wok in that case.

what other foods burn & stick to the pan at such hot temperatures?
