By the way: If, in addition to the name wok made of carbon steel, you also hear the spelling wok made of carbon steel, i.e. written with a “C”, it is exactly the same thing.
If you want to buy a wok, you will come across different materials. A wok is traditionally made of cast iron, but can also be made of aluminum, stainless steel and carbon steel. Before we delve into this, let’s clarify what carbon steel actually is. Carbon steel has a second name and it is also referred to as carbon steel. This steel consists mainly of iron and has carbon as a minor component. This steel is hardenable and can be forged, which is why it is often hammered by hand in addition to being manufactured by machine. Just like our wok pans, because they are all hand-hammered.
By the way, a carbon steel wok is the most commonly found wok in Chinese restaurants. So you can cook like a pro with your own wok. A wok from pasoli offers you numerous advantages: The weight is many times less than a wok made of cast iron, making it easier and easier to handle.

In contrast to the advantages, we could simply ignore the disadvantages, but we still want to mention them in fairness: Carbon steel can rust. Therefore it should always be dried well. In contrast to a cast iron wok, carbon steel is not quite as stable and can definitely deform. Especially if it falls down or hits something somewhere. But this can easily be avoided with appropriate attention. Incidentally, a wok that has a dent may no longer be as beautiful, but it is certainly still functional. You see: two disadvantages versus seven advantages – need we say more?
