Product Details

Due to their unique spun iron construction, Netherton Foundry pans have all the advantages of cast iron cookware with half the weight. This wok is the thinnest item in the range, which makes it exceptionally heat responsive—meaning you can achieve that slightly smoky flavour and crisp texture Cantonese chefs call ‘wok hei’. It can withstand the heat of a burner set to maximum without warping, as long as you make sure to start with low heat and gradually build up to high to avoid thermal shock, which is also caused by adding cold water to a hot, empty pan. The comfortable, hand-turned oak handle is easy to grip as you shake the pan, and unlike standard carbon steel woks, there’s no need to season before use. A matching lid is available and sold separately here. Like other Netherton Foundry pans, this wok comes pre-seasoned with flax oil and becomes more non-stick over time as long as you maintain it properly. Read our guide to pan seasoning here.

Why we love it

‘I can hardly believe how light this wok is, especially compared to the standard carbon steel and non-stick woks I’m used to. I can comfortably flip the ingredients one-handed.’

About The Brand

Netherton Foundry

Netherton Foundry is a small-scale, family-run workshop based in Shropshire that makes cookware using time-honoured methods and materials. Their pots, pans, and select bakeware are made by turning whole plates of raw black iron on a lathe (which is from the 1930s) and shaping them with rods—an industrial process that gives their products an unparalleled lightness while preserving all the advantages of cast iron cookware, such as heat retention and durability. All their cookware is thoroughly pre-seasoned with flax oil for a natural easy-release finish.
