This traditional carbon steel wok has to be seasoned before the first use.

Here's How:
1. Wash the wok in hot water with a small amount of liquid detergent and a scrubber (such as a stainless steel sponge or pad).
2. If needed, scrub the exterior of the wok with the scrubber and an abrasive cleanser. Do not use the abrasive cleanser on the inside of the wok.
3. Rinse the wok and dry thoroughly.
4. Place the wok on high heat.
5. Move the wok, turning it and tilting it up to the rim and back, until the metal turns a blueish-yellowish color.
6. Remove the wok from the stove element. Turn the heat down to medium-low.
7. Add a thin film of oil (about 1 1/2 teaspoons) over the entire inside surface of the wok. There are several ways to do this. One is to use a paper towel to rub the oil over the surface. You may want to use tongs to hold the paper towels. Another way is to use a basting brush for barbecues or any other heat-proof brush to brush on the oil.
8. Heat the wok on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes.
9. Wipe off the oil with another paper towel. There will be black residue on the towel.
10. Repeat steps 7 through 9 until no black residue comes up on the paper (about 3 times). The wok is now ready to use.

It is important to thoroughly clean the wok to remove the manufacturer's protective coating.
