    Pretty Sure I Bought The Wrong Pan

    I mostly use cast iron in one format or another but I use a non-stick wok for some things. A wok I bought in a Vietnamese grocery store 5 years ago. It's a handy size. It's been dying for a couple of months.

    I pulled the trigger on a copper wok tonight. I don't use steel woks since there's no amount of wishful thinking that will get my laughable electric stove up to those temps.

    I always feel despondent when ordering pans from Amazon. I've never actually been ripped off or tricked but I always feel as though I will be.

    My condolences. I know nothing much about different metals' value for cooking, but I HATE electric stoves.

    They are annoying but I love my double oven so I stay in the relationship.

    I don't know about Bezos, but I've always found Amazon customer service to be exemplary.
    In most cases, if you don't get what you want, you can return it, no questions asked.

    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    Bought the right pan. Shockingly.

    I read the destructions, seasoned it, and have made three different things in it and all turned out amazingly well. I've made bacon in cast iron my entire life, made it many times in non-stick pans, made it in the oven, or the microwave, or over a stick in camp - hands down, this pan makes it faster, crispier, and because it's a wok, with less mess than any other way I've done it.

    It's generous without being huge, heats evenly on my The Price is Right stove, cleans up like a dream, and can handle dinner for 6 or 2. Plus, attractive.

    Obviously, the ceramic coating will kill us or the metal handle will blind me or something awful will happen but not tonight.
