First Wok Cook on Induction

subal | Feb 19, 2012 07:14 PM

For my recent birthday, my wife gave me the 14" flat bottomed wok set from the "Wok Shop".
Yesterday, I seasoned it and cooked up some Jasmine rice that I refrigerated for todays initial cook.

I was concerned that our DIVA induction unit would not get the heat high enough, but after today, there are no worries"
The center coil is rated at 25,000 btus, but I'm not sure if that is a valid comparision to a 25k gas burner.

I followed instructions on rinsing the rice before cooking and used slightly less water to get a some what dry finished product.

The main coil I cooked on has increments from 1 to 12, with 12 being the highest setting. I found that the 10 setting provided adequate heat and only momenatrirly used the 12 setting when I dumped in the cold rice.

I used peanut oil and did not encounter any problems with sticking.

After cooking, I noticed the flat bottom had warped slightly, but still had no problem in magnetically coupling.
