Woks vs. Skillets: Do You Need Both? | Gear Heads


From America’s Test Kitchen.

For years, we’ve tweaked conventional stir-fry recipes to achieve delicious results in a nonstick skillet rather than a wok, the traditional cooking vessel. Since American stove burners are flat, we aimed to get more contact with the heat source by using the broad cooking surface of a 12-inch skillet instead of the smaller bottom surface of a wok. But even with a flat stove burner, is cooking with a wok worth a try?
