Wok Shop - Hand Hammered Flat Bottom Wok

CJ72387 | Feb 5, 2014 06:50 PM

I don't have much experience with wok cooking and went off the recommendations from several forums regarding the Wok Shop woks.

After receiving my hand hammered flat bottom pow wok, I noticed that the bottom is flat so that it sits on a flat cook top, but the bottom is not really flat. The bottom has ripples in it and I'm not sure if this is ok or it is a defect in the manufacturing.

I contacted the Wok Shop and she said that the ripples or "Whatever I call them" were ok and did not affect the performance of the wok.

Has anyone else come across this? Is it normal or is there an issue with my wok.

I have used it once and I guess it worked ok, but I'm just not sure if i have the product that I want.

Thanks for any advice.
