Where can I find a good Wok?

Where can I find a good Wok? I've heard about AllCald and stuff, but I can't find a wok on their site...

Depends on what type of wok you're looking for. If you want a more traditional wok, (carbon steel) then I think your best bet is to find an Asian grocer or a kitchen supply store and have a look around. If you want stainless steel, AllClad may make one, I don't know, but I do know that Calphalon makes them. Check Bed, Bath and Beyond for Calphalon or similar items.

Caine, Is there a website or is it a walk in store?





EDIT: Google is my BEST friend!

www.worldmarket.com



EDIT again: I couldn't find a wok there.

Sounds cliche, Asian grocers have the best deal on all sizes. I got an awesome hand hammered for 25 smackers. It has great park zones, heats up QUICK, and has never let me down.

Well, I have my own theory so listen up - go to your local Asian grocer - they have the best and most inexpensive woks available!

Love All Clad but would not buy a wok from them. Too pricy and IMO a carbon steel wok is the way to go.

I bought one from The Wok Shop years ago and it's fantastic.

Asian groceries sell fine ones too.

Another vote for an Asian grocery store.

That's where mine came from. Mom bought it for me as a gift back in 1974 & it's well-seasoned & still going strong after fairly continuous use (we usually have a stirfry at LEAST once a week). After using that for all these years, I simply laugh at all the new pricey updated copies.

Why would you order a 10 dollar wok on line? The shipping charges would just about double the price.

That's why I still don't have a knife safe for my 6-inch ceramic chef's knife. None of the so-called kitchen stores in my area have them, so I looked on line:

Knife safe - $2.95. Shipping and handling - $5.95
