Pre-Seasoned and Naturally Nonstick

This pre-seasoned, chemical-free, carbon steel wok is ready to use right out of the box, and will just get better the more you cook with it.

A Misen Carbon Steel Wok with the glass lid on sits in a kitchen drawer with two Misen Stainless Steel pans.

Perfect Size for Any Home Kitchen

At 12-inches, the Misen Wok is easy to maneuver and easy to store. We gave it a small, flat bottom to allow it to work on any stovetop.

Ergonomic, Stay-Cool Handles

Stirring and tossing over high heat is comfortable and safe, thanks to one long, stainless steel stay-cool handle, plus a helper handle for extra support.

Everything You Need to Know

Do I need to season it?

Nope — the Misen Carbon Steel Wok is pre-seasoned, so you can start cooking with it right away. We recommend a quick hand-wash with soap and warm water before the first use.

What is “seasoning” and what does “pre-seasoned” mean?

A pan’s “seasoning” refers to the build-up of fats that bake into its metals over time. These layers of fats create a smooth surface that requires very little extra cooking fat to prevent food from sticking. It’s the same thing as a patina on a well-loved cast-iron pan: the more you cook with it, the stronger and more nonstick the pan becomes as it builds up more and more layers of fats.

By pre-seasoning the wok as part of our manufacturing process, we’ve established a strong base layer of seasoning for you. Then, its seasoning will continue to get stronger as you cook with it.

Is it oven-safe?

Yes! This Wok is oven-safe to 500º F / 260º C.

Can I cook high-acid foods in it?

Small amounts of acidic ingredients — like wine or vinegar — are okay to use in the wok.

But we recommend avoiding cooking large amounts of acidic foods (such as tomato sauce) in the wok, as these can cause the buildup of your seasoning to deteriorate.

How do I clean it?

We recommend cleaning with warm water and a non-metallic brush or scrubber. Avoid using soap or the dishwasher, which can cause the seasoning to deteriorate. Towel dry right away to prevent rusting.

My wok isn’t as nonstick as my nonstick pan. Why?

Naturally seasoned carbon steel is a little different from a commercial nonstick coating. It's created by a build-up of fats that bake into the metal, making it more and more nonstick the more you cook with it. We recommend using some cooking fat when you cook with your wok, and it’s always a good idea to properly preheat the pan over medium heat before adding any fat or food.

How big/heavy is it?

Weight: 5lb 11oz (2.58 kg) with lid, 3lb 10oz (1.64 kg) without lid
Wok Diameter: 12 inches (30.5 cm)
Total Length including Handle: 22.4 inches (56.9 cm)

Does it work on induction cooktops?

Yes, the Wok is made with induction-compatible carbon steel and designed with a flat base that will work on any cooktop: gas, electric, ceramic, you name it.

What kind of fat or oil is used in the pan’s preseasoning?

Our factory uses a blended oil to create our wok’s pre-seasoning. It’s a combination of soybean, rapeseed, sunflower, peanut, rice, corn, sesame, and linseed oil.

My wok isn’t nonstick anymore, what do I do?

The base seasoning layer on the wok is pretty tough, but here’s what to do if it needs a touch-up:

1. Place your clean, dry wok over medium heat for a few minutes to warm up.
2. Use a clean towel or paper towel to rub a few drops of a high-smoke point oil into the wok interior.
3. Continue wiping away the excess oil while it’s over the heat (your wok surface should appear dry, instead of oily or wet)—it may smoke lightly, which is fine! Then remove from the heat and allow it to cool.

    Best item

    This is the first time I purchased a Misen product. I could not be happier, it performs well, it’s very very easy to make stirfry in this pan and I was so happy that it was preseasoned. Best of all there are instructions of what to do if I need to reseason the pan and why that would happen. This is the best product I have purchased yet.

    Perfect size, perfect wok for me.

    Super high quality wok. The size is just right for the two of us. The pre-seasoning means we could use it right out of the box. I like the heft of it, which helps spread the heat on the electric stove I am using so I get no hot spots that I got on a lighter wok. I find I can use higher heat than before which helps sear the food without burning.

    Great size and weight

    I have not had a chance to use it yet, but love the size and weight. I had bought a second one for my son's birthday without realizing he already had it. My brother was visiting from England and fell in love with it and took it back with him. Just so you know a carbon steel pan can go through security in a carry on bag, but a cast iron cannot :-)
