Please Help - Urgent Wok Crisis!

borisabrams | Apr 27, 2014 01:00 PM


I have been away for a month and my housemate used my Wok. He left it half filled with water!!!!! I got back to day horrified to find it covered in water with bits of rust floating in it! And there looks like a bit of the black coating has come right of.

I am not sure what type of wok I have; but it is certainly non stick. Pretty sure it is Iron. I had to take off a layer of silver coating when I brought it from the store and season it numerous times.

Anyway. I have had it for months, had a beautiful black coating on it. And now I am quite honestly distraught.
I have soaked it with some detergent (prob not what It needed!) and dried it. See pics for post-soak pictures.
I heard rust can make you sick?
is this actually rust now on my wok?
Time to get a new one?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
