Hand Hammered Carbon Steel Wok - Does the wok look fine to you

ictown775 | Aug 12, 201203:34 PM

Hi all,

It's been two years since I've posted and I don't post much, but I've read a lot of threads here and there.

The cast iron wok I had [thread from two years ago] broke due to relocating. It cracked when it was dropped, my fault.

So, I got this new carbon steel wok last year and I've been using it weekly. I just want to know, is the wok look fine to you or am I being worried for no reason.

When I first seasoned it, it look beautiful [first picture]
As I used it, the seasoning on the side wore off and looks metallic-like, but the center got darker [seasoned]. Sometimes after I cook food in the wok, I get this weird dry rust color. Other than that it works fine, I've been avoiding acidic food and I tried to cook eggs one time and that didn't pan out well.

Picture 1 - Seasoned 1-2 times when I got it last year
Picture 2 and 3 - What it looks like in its present state
Picture 4 - The whole wok
