This heavy 14-gauge wok is an easy and fun to use. The wooden handle and side spool handle allows the cook full command of the wok. The flat bottom is designed to sit directly on an electric stove or grill to take advantage of all the heat. If cooking with gas, the same wok is available in round bottom (although this flat bottom also works efficiently on a gas stove). Not recommended for ceramic stove tops or heat induction stoves. 4" depth. Sizing recommendations: 12" for up to 5 people, 14" for 6--12 people, and 16" for over 12 people. Must be seasoned. Made in USA.
