Le Creuset Wok Review
The Le Creuset wok is a work of art. Designed with beauty in mind, it is curved gracefully and both handles flare out from the sides. The signature cast iron and enamel combination from Le Creuset lends bold color and style to your kitchen with a wok that will make the best stir-fries you've ever tasted.
The wok can also be used for traditional Chinese steaming and frying in oil. If you've never used a wok to make fried chicken, you've got to try it!
Positive FeaturesThe flat bottom on the Le Creuset wok makes it easy to use on flat-topped stoves. The cast iron retains the heat very well, even when cold food is dropped in. The seasoned cast iron interior with the enameled exterior is not only beautiful, it is functional. Food doesn't stick to the interior, and unlike most carbon steel woks, rust is not a constant companion to be cleaned off. Food cooks well in this wok, even though it is not a traditional Chinese wok.
The lifetime warranty is upheld by the company without a problem. The glass lid fits well, keeping in steam when needed. Most other reviews by customers rate this wok very highly for both looks and performance. Because of the limited BTUs on a standard home stove top, it may perform better than a traditional wok can, since a traditional wok needs extremely high heat to create that special "stir-fry" taste.
The bold colors of the enamel look as good on the table as it does on the stove. The wok is available in flame (orange), cobalt (blue), kiwi (light green) and red.
ConsiderationsThe Le Creuset wok is heavy due to its cast iron construction 14.1 pounds, to be exact. Some of the woks seem to have a problem with cracked handles. The thick cast iron takes longer to heat than a traditional Chinese wok, and requires lower heats for cooking. Cleaning takes a little extra effort due to the nature of cast iron, and the seasoning takes a little work to maintain.
