A cast iron wok is the ideal cooking vessel for fast-cooking dishes like meat and vegetable stir frys or for deep frying. This is because cast iron has superior heat retention abilities as well as even heat distribution. As a result, you can quickly sear meat or vegetables to perfection. When properly seasoned, cast iron also provides a non-stick cooking surface which makes cleanup a breeze. Some cast iron woks have a rounded base that require a ring/stand for use on a regular gas or electric burner. Others have flat-bottom construction so that they can sit directly on the burner. Considerations include care instructions (some are dishwasher safe), weight (some are too heavy to handle easily during cooking), easy-grip handles, and whether or not a lid is included.
