From time to time, we received a lot of feedbacks as well as questions. One of the biggest one would be: "How can I season a wok without gas stove?" or perhaps you did try a few time using traditional methods of seasoning with no success? Now, thanks to one of our customer Romo, we are going to show you how to season a raw carbon steel wok with a household domestic oven without any open fire or flame. Below is Romo's writing (with his permission to publish).
I've bought this round-bottom wok (鑊 Huò, 炒鑊 Chǎo huò, 炒鍋 Chǎo guō) as a gift for someone with no stir-frying experience, and was afraid that the wok might not get seasoned properly were I to gift it in its original shape. I did run into a small problem of my own, however, in that I currently live in an apartment with an electric range which makes it impossible for me to season the wok using the traditional gas stove techniques.
