Wok This Way
We recommend that you use a flat-bottomed
wok, available at your local retail store.
Only a flat-bottomed wok should be used.
Do not use a flat-bottomed wok with a
wok holder.
Do not use a flat-bottomed wok on a
support ring. Placing the ring over the
burner or grate may cause the burner to
work improperly, resulting in carbon
monoxide levels above allowable current
standards. This could be dangerous to
your health.
Use a flat-bottomed wok.
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is
recommended because it heats quickly
and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in
an aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with
tight fitting lids when cooking with
minimum amounts of water.
Enamelware: Under some conditions,
the enamel of some cookware may
melt. Follow cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooking methods.
Glass: There are two types of glass
cookware: those for oven use only
and those for cooktop cooking
(saucepans, coffee and tea pots).
Glass conducts heat very slowly.
Cast Iron: If heated slowly, most
skillets will give satisfactory results.
Heatproof Glass-Ceramic: Can be used
for either surface or oven cooking.
It conducts heat very slowly and cools
very slowly. Check cookware
manufacturer’s directions to be sure it
can be used on a gas cooktop.
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has
poor heating properties and is usually
combined with copper, aluminum
or other metals for improved heat
distribution. Combination metal skillets
usually work satisfactorily if they are used
with medium heat as the manufacturer
Using your cooktop.
Stove Top Grills
Do not use stove top grills on your
sealed gas burners. If you use the stove
top grill on the sealed gas burner it will
cause incomplete combustion and can
result in exposure to carbon monoxide
levels above allowable current
standards. This can be hazardous to
your health.
