How can I save my wok from scratching my induction hob?
If you wish to shake the contents of the wok whilst cooking, in order to even the cooking of the dish, always pick the whole wok up, shake, and then set down. Do not rattle the wok on your induction surface as this will cause scratches on the hob. Always use a trivet to save worktop surfaces, as woks can get extremely hot.
