CIRCULON CONTEMPO 30CM STIR-FRY WOK $199, from major department stores
USING IT The wok’s long, silicone-insulated handle was the most comfortable to hold; the excellent grip made lifting and tilting easy. The walls are a bit shallow, so I had to be careful when tossing rice in it. PERFORMANCE The food turned out faultless – the rice and fish had the strongest semblance of wok hei, and the greens didn’t overcook too quickly. The omelette stuck a bit in the non-oiled wok but washed away effortlessly with soapy water.
VERDICT An ergonomic flat wok that cooked well.
