Story of Mamma Fong& Who We Are
My name is Daphne and I am on a mission to bring back the authentic flavours of Asian cuisine. By introducing Mammafong® - the new generation of classic cookwares. I am honouring my culinary heritage and teachers; my grandma and my mother - Mamma Fong.
My earliest childhood memories of Hong Kong are countless summer vacations spent at my grandma’s home. She was a genius cook and turned out an abundance of food for the entire family. I would watch with fascination as my grandma prepared these delicious meals with such ease and care.
I vividly recall the aroma of sweet and sour sauces simmering in the wok and the fragrance of five spice powder wafting through the kitchen. I was hungry as soon as I walked through the door!
In contrast, Mamma Fong who was working full-time was always looking for a way to get dinner ready quickly and easily. Her solution: A delicious stir-fry served over a bed of hot steaming rice. We loved it! It was simple, fast and nutritious. My mom skilfully tossed the wok with ginger & peanut oil. The carbon steel wok hummed and crackled, releasing a familiar gingery aroma. She’d then add my favourite Chinese sausage and bok choy. Voilà! Dinner was served in no time at all. My mom always said “A good carbon steel wok is all you need in the kitchen!”
Some 20 years later, I’ve relocated to Sydney, Australia. One thing hasn’t changed, my hand hammered wok is still an essential tool in my kitchen. It is well seasoned after many years of use. Its surface has turned to a beautiful black patina and has become naturally non-stick. I love my traditional wok but I found it increasingly difficult to find one in stores. That’s when the idea to start Mammafong® was conceived. I want to celebrate the classic wok, and mark its significant role in Chinese culinary history. As well as the evocative aromas and flavours of Asian cooking.
I now have a two-year old daughter of my own who also loves stir-fry just as much as I do. I created the Mammafong® wok, an authentic hand-hammered wok crafted from carbon steel to pass down to her. That way, she too can learn about Chinese cooking and be proudly connected to her heritage.
I hope you too can share my passion for creating authentic, traditional Asian cuisine at home with your own Mammafong® carbon steel wok.

What Customer Say About Us
“ Once properly seasoned, this wok works perfectly. I have used it non-stop since I’ve had it. The craftsmanship is beautiful and it was much lighter than I expected. In terms of the cooking performance, it heats up quickly and evenly which is perfect for stir-fry. The wooden handle is long and stays cool so it’s easy for me to toss around ingredients. I am happy with my purchase, highly recommended. ”William M.Amazon Customer
“ I am new to using a wok. This wok is the type of wok traditionally used in China, the round bottomed pow wok. What I immediately noticed about this wok is how heavy it is. I did not expect a carbon steel wok to be this heavy. It is well made, looks beautiful, and has a cool touch wooden handle. It looks exactly like what my Chinese friends use to cook. At $40, that's cheap in comparison to the many high end pots and pans I own. If you haven't used a wok, you should try it. They are great for frying and sauting. I have really enjoyed learning about traditional Chinese cuisine and, as a result of this effort, I have greatly increased the amount of vegetables I am eating. Having a wok is improving my diet. If you want to cook Chinese food like the Chinese do, this wok is an excellent choice and a good value for the money. ”Malcolm F. Amazon Customer
“ I bought this to replace a reliable, but non-stick wok I have used for years. I wanted to get more genuine smoky flavors, only achievable through a good carbon steel wok. Followed manufacturer's and other online instructions for seasoning the wok, which turned it a nice, shiny blue-black color. Have only used it twice, but so far, great! Would definitely recommend this wok, good value for the money. ”Sonia G.Shoptify Customer
“ Love love this wok! This is my first carbon steel wok. And it has everything I want. The flat bottom, hand hammered, wooden handle! Perfect. And I seasoned it the first time, this is how it looks like after first seasoning. Can’t wait to use it to make more food! ”Louisa D.Customer
“ This is a fantastic wok, just what I needed. It is already pre-seasoned. Follow directions precisely and you will have no problems. The heat distribution is great. It makes a great stir-fry. Highly recommend this wok. ”Maggie H.Customer
“ I was looking for a pre-seasoned, non-teflon wok and this is the perfect piece. I have already used this several times and it has proved to both cook and clean up well. Happy I got this one. ”Victoria V.Amazon Customer
