The Paderno World Cuisine 13" non-stick Chinese wok has a single wooden handle. Woks are most often used for stir frying, but can be used for other types of cooking as well. The long handle of the wok allows the cook to work with the food without the risk of injury from hot, splattering oil. The handle facilitates the tossing action for cooks used to using western sautè pans with similar style handles. The non-stick surface is PTFE and PFOA-free, ensuring it is healthy and eco-friendly.
