WOK KIT - HILLBILLY FOLDING HONDLE 350MM - STEEL
3 PIECE KIT = WOK + CANVAS BAG (GEAR MATE 9) + HANDE SLEEVE (GEAR MATE 11)
Inspired by Harry from FIRE TO FORK and Ronny from 4 WHEELING AUSTRALIA we are stocking this awesome Folding Handle Wok.
We love that you get all the benefits of a wok in a compact package so it is easy to pack and fit in your drawers or bags etc. spot on.
If you follow FIRE TO FORK you will see there are a lot more uses for a Wok than we had dreamed of! I used to think they were just for stir frys...
We also like that it is:
- all steel construction (good for open fire or gas)
- flat bottomed (stable on grill, coals, stove etc..)
- not coated with 'non-stick' artificial chemicals
- gets better with age as it seasons
- simple to clean
- made right here in Australia, VIC!
We have a canvas bag specifically designed to house it and keep your other gear protected as it needs to keep well oiled - the GEAR MATE 9. Also creates a solution for an otherwise awkward item to pack.
To complete the job a GEAR MATE 11 is also included in the kit. It acts as a handle sleeve to protect the handle from rubbing the bottom of the Wok in transit plus eliminates rattles on the bumps. Brightly coloured in yellow so easy to find if dropped on the ground at camp. We love paying attention to the little things...:0)
Care Note: This is made from high carbon steel that does not include a non-stick coating, so it requires 'seasoning' and a little TLC (see below) to serve you for generations. It is sprayed with a food grade coating for storage/transport & sometimes it may look patchy; this is normal. When you first receive it, gently wash in warm soapy water, dry thoughly & wipe with oil (all over). For best results, heat (160 for 10mins), allow to touch cool, oil all over; repeat process. The more you use it, the better it gets and requires less maintenance. Treat it to cooking some nice bacon or sausages to soak up the good oil.
Jimmy's Tip: Keep an oily rag with it at all times so it is easy to give it a quick wipe over after cleaning. We use steel wool lightly for a quick clean; the more it is used the less cleaning is needed as we try to keep the coating that has built up over time. Give it a good dose of oil pre and post use and it will look after you for generations. Every now & then give the canvas bag a gentle hose (garden) out and dry in shade.
