I still use the same utensils that came with my wok 30 years ago. A steel spider with a bamboo handle and a steel spatula type thing with a small edge on each side and shaped to the curvature of the wok. It's a must, you have to have that sound of metal on metal clanging when you are stir-frying.

Omg so long!?

Okay, well I'll stick with the bamboo for now and keep my eyes open for steel utensils.
I'll buy some mineral oil or whatever to season my wok and the bamboos.

Mineral oil for the bamboo, vegetable oil for the wok seasoning. If you like I can PM you how to oil your wooden utensils.

Thanks for the offer Fiona, but I found a lot of guides online for how to do this. If I have questions I'll feel free PM you for clarification!

I like the curve of the chan, I have a metal one but plan to buy a silicone one. The sound of the metal one makes to much noise when I shoot video.

No. Not according to the instructions that came with my wok.

I've received and seasoned the wok!!

I coated with grapeseed oil and baked for 20 minutes at 425. Seeing spots, I repeated the baking process.

After this, I stir fried scallions on high heat until they got charred (8 min).

Is my wok seasoned okay? Any tips on it's first usage and care?
