Editor's Notes

March 05, 2019:

Removed the Joyce Chen Pro Flat Bottom and Ozeri Green Earth due to numerous reports of their handles becoming loose or falling off, and got rid of the Neoflam Chef's Pan as its nonstick coating is not very durable. The Craft Wok Traditional is an excellent choice for those looking for an authentic style, but due to its round bottom, it's not recommended for use on flat-top stoves. For gas and electric coil burners, you will need an inexpensive accessory called a wok ring, or wok stand, to stabilize it. Also added the T-fal Specialty as an affordable option for those who are just getting into wok cooking and want to try it out before committing to a higher-end pan.

She spent two years as a writer and editor for a large DIY/tutorial startup, where she wrote extensively about technology, security, lifestyle, and home improvement.
