Give them a try I think you'll enjoy them, I've been using them for years. I make a lot of pasta dishes with them (steam in the bag then sautee in garlic & olive oil). Try & shoot for the ones that are just plain veggies though, anything they make with a 'sauce' pretty much blows; I'm lazy just not that lazy, I can handle the sauce part myself...

Another good brand is Pictsweet, they have the same steam in bag. Every now & then one or the other goes on sale @ .99 cents per bag so I grab maybe 10 of them of all different varieties.

We go through plenty of fresh veggies too, particularly for larger pieces to grill, but these things are a fantastic option if you need relatively small pieces & the destination is a cooked dish

smokemaster1, believe it or not it's a 'food network' brand non-stick wok. I'm not much of a woker, I might use it 3 or 4 times a year. When I went shopping for one & saw how much the real ones were I grabbed this one I think for about $30, it has served me very well for a couple years now. Though if this fried rice thing works out & makes its way into the regular rotation I may have to go out & invest in a bigger & better one

Get thee to an Asian Market, buy a big carbon steel one and keep it seasoned well.

I picked up a nice authentic steel wok online for about $30.
I've done fried rice many times and would give some comments.
- It's much better with day old rice, opposed to recently cooked rice.
- Right before you toss in the rice and everything else throw in an egg or two.
- A dash of sesame oil is also adds a nice nutty flavor.
- Sesame seeds and scallions to top it off.
I've generally always used frozen veggies for fried rice, never had a problem with them. I forget who, but someone makes a good frozen stir fry bag, with onions and peppers.

The rice looks outstanding Zippylip.

Can I ask what you put in sauce wise? Just soy sauce?

Thanks, and yep just soy sauce. I think it was darker partly because it was brown rice and partly because of the soy sauce. I tried the whole thing again & put much less of it in (too salty for me), and instead cooked the rice in chicken broth to give it more flavor, then just a few drops of soy sauce & I think it came out better

That sounds really cheap for a real wok, sounds like I should've done some more poking around before I bought the other one. I did try the day old rice on the next cook and it was better. As for the eggs, I wanted them in here but had none, they do add a great touch to fried rice. Have a severe sesame allergy so I although I love it, must avoid it like the plague lest I blow up like a Willie Wonka blueberry.

Completely missed the scallions too, will do on the next batch - thanks

I have a 14" carbon steel 2 wood handle one from wokshop.com.
I also picked up a bunch of their accessories/tools. the web site made me kind of reluctant to order but I'm glad I did. I've had it now for about 4 years and love it.
