This grill pan makes easy work of griddling a wide range of ingredients. Made from cast aluminium ensures it is lightweight and fits perfectly on most hobs whether gas, electric or ceramic.

- Not induction safe but is gas, electric or ceramic safe
- The black phenolic handle reduces heat conductivity making it easy to pick up and carry. Finished with a hanging loop for easy storage.
- The ridged base is ideal for searing meat, fish and vegetables, helping you achieve the perfect appearance as well as flavour.
Easy to Use
To start cooking, oil the food if desired, add to the pan ensuring it sizzles and leave on one side until it is almost cooked through. Turn over to finish cooking on the other side. Chinese cooking is all about being quick, easy and healthy and this pan has been designed to assist with achieving that. It offers great heat conduction making it ideal for high heat, high speed cooking whilst ensuring the temperature remains consistent throughout. With ridged interior base not only helps to prevent food from sticking when searing but also adds to the presentation and flavour with charring.
It is advised, while using the watch on induction hobs, that the induction booster is only used for a very short time.
Easy to Maintain
To help prolong the integrity of the non-stick coating it is recommended to use wooden, silicone or nylon utensils rather than metal which can scratch. Occasionally apply a thin coating of cooking oil to the inner surface of the wok to prevent rusting should the coating become scratched.
Easy to Clean
The non-stick coating also means it is easy to clean by hand with hot water. Mild detergent can be used if desired. Any stubborn food can be left to soak for a few minutes. Avoid using any harsh scouring products as this may damage the non-stick coating. Thoroughly dry with a clean soft cloth.
Easy to Store
The long phenolic handle reduces heat conductivity making it easy to carry.
The large metal loop on the end allows for easy storage as you can simply hang up your pan when not in use.
Use and Care Instructions
Remove all packaging and labels and wash the wok in hot soapy water using a mild
detergent. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Using The Wok
The wok is suitable for use on all types of hobs, including induction, however we recommend that you also refer to your hob manufacturer's usage instructions. Not suitable for use in conventional or microwave ovens. Should the handle become loose during use, re-tighten immediately. Always match the base size of the wok to the heat zone it is to be used on. Add the oil to the wok then heat carefully until small "ripples" appear on the surface of the oil.
Do not let the oil become smoking hot. If this should occur let the wok cool down before proceeding. Olive oil, including extra virgin, is not recommended for stir-fry cooking as it has a low smoking point. It can easily burn which may damage the wok. During cooking, if the ingredients start to become dry or stick together, add one or two tablespoons of hot water and continue stir-frying; do not add more oil as this may make the finished recipe too oily. If used on a glass-topped hob, always lift the wok on, or across the surface. Never slide the wok as this may cause damage to the wok base as well as to the glass. Take care not to let the wok overbalance during use and never leave the wok unattended during cooking.
Heat Settings and Cooking Utensils
Take care not to overheat the wok; it should never be used on a maximum or too high a heat setting as excessive surface temperatures will damage the non-stick coating. The boost function on an induction hob should only be used for very short periods for rapid heating of large quantities of water if using the wok for boiling rice or vegetables for example, never for stir-frying/cooking. Keep gas flames confined to the base area; they should not extend up around the outside of the wok as this could cause overheating and lead to damage. Take care not to place the handle over direct heat or a naked flame. Never use knives or metal utensils with sharp edges on the non-stick surface.
Let the wok cool down for a few minutes before cleaning. For any stubborn food residue fill with hot soapy water and leave to soak. Only use cleaning pads recommended for non-stick surfaces. Do not use metal pads, harsh abrasive or very stiff pads/washing up brushes or abrasive cleaning products on any surface.
The wok is covered by a 5 year guarantee, from date of purchase, if used in accordance with all care and use instructions provided.
