i got this carbon steel wok and today i tried to season it.
after watching a lot of youtube videos. i decided to follow the tutorial of the "school of wok" channel. the instructions on my wok said to boil with water and scrub with steel wool to get rid of the protective coating. After following all the steps i tried to seasoned with a layer of oil and let the wok absorb the oil all around.
my wok got a nice matte finish in the bottom, but the other parts around the wok have glossy marks (picture), i guess is from the protective coating. after boiling and scrubbing again, the marks are still there and my kitchen has a horrible smell.
Do i need to buy a good quality wok or is it my fault?
