Default help on wok.

I scored on a cast iron wok . It is bigger then my oven . i always use the oven . what do i do to season it . I know it has to get real hot before you can do anything with it .And i don't want to use a campfire with the ashes and all the stuff that goes with it .

It has a coating that high heat will burn off, wipe it away after and you are done.
Some folks use food grade flax oil, some grapeseed oil and give it a wipe.
Do not use Olive oil or some such.

I rub veg oil on mine and put in oven at 500 till it starts smoking good then take it out and wipe it off with a paper towel. If its really bigger than oven do it on stove top.

Is it new and has never been seasoned? If it is truly cast iron then I would really like to see a picture. I don't think I have ever seen a cast Iron Wok before.

My wok is cast iron, and I seasoned it in the Keg. Came out great. Doesn't have to be in your oven.

Got one of these from Lodge:
http://www.lodgemfg.com/seasoned-cas...ogic-wok-P14W3
Yea, it is heavy, strictly outdoor use - wife freaks when I put CI on the glass cooktop in our kitchen. Came preseasoned and I just keep it up , I use peanut oil to wipe down after cooking while it cools.

If it won't fit in your oven, maybe one of your cookers, running a little hot? Both of the videos were good, but I would not wash CI w/ hot soapy water unless I'm totally restoring CI. Lodge has CI seasoning & care on their website.

yep!That's the way to do it! Most home stoves don't have powerful enough burners for proper wok temps!

Cast iron woks are great. Best to season it on a hot fire.
