  1. Wok

    A wok is a versatile round-bottomed cooking vessel originating in the Canton region of China. It is one of the most common cooking utensils in China and also used in East and Southeast Asia, as well as becoming a popular niche cooking tool throughout much of the industrialized world. Woks are often used for stir frying, steaming, pan frying, deep frying, poaching, boiling, braising, searing, stewing, making soup, smoking and roasting nuts. Wok cooking is done with a long handle called chahn or hoak. The long handles of these utensils allow cooks to work with the food without burning their hands.
