- 所有易潔鑊受熱時塗層都會變得無室溫時咁堅硬，所以煮食時建議只用矽膠鑊鏟，亦避免炒有骨/ 硬殼等食物
不過要提醒返，用得耐有些少burn marks實屬正常，平時d易潔鑊黑色你未必覺，但牛油果鍋係淺色，所有burn marks都會睇得一清二楚，其實唔洗成日過度清潔的，由個鍋上面有少少油脂積聚會更有效促進不沾性能
Thanks for your purchase!
Thank you for purchasing Lowenthal Avocado Ceramic Non-Stick Wok. In this page we would like to share with you the journey we had before finding this wok and also points to note regarding using it. Please enjoy this page as well as more carefree and convenient cooking with the wok.
Couple Overcooked is a project we started in 2020 when the pandemic had just started and it turned out to be a very interesting project for us. We found home cooking more fun and we began to have a new common language which brought our marriage life some extra enjoyment.
In these 2 years we started some mini-project from time to time. At the beginning Couple Overcooked was no more than sharing food photos on FB and IG. Later we created this website for sharing recipes and then we founded the cookware online store for sharing cookware we love. This time, the ceramic wok project started when we found out the PTFE non-stick pan we were using was actually degraded. After carrying out some research, to our surprise, we discovered that it’s actually very problematic to use a PTFE wok. We then connected with some manufacturers and eventually it becomes the Avocado Ceramic Wok from Korea you have in your hands. Throughout the journey, Couple Overcooked has been a very happy and fulfilling project for us.
Thank you for choosing our product which is a support to what we are doing. We hope you will also enjoy the content we share.
Lowenthal Avocado Ceramic Non-Stick Wok Q&A
Why is ceramic coating a better choice than PTFE?
Ceramic coating is made up of clay/ sand. After it has been made into sol-gel state, it is sprayed onto the wok and undergone baking for making the smooth and non-sticky coating. As the chemical composition is silicon and oxygen which is same as sand, stone and glass, it’s been regarded as a more healthy choice.
A PTFE wok will be degraded and release toxic gas at 260°C while a ceramic wok can withstand temperature of 450-500°C and even at this high temperature, only the non-stickiness will be undermined but not to release toxic PFAS gas like a PTFE wok.
Do I need to season the wok to maintain its condition?
No you don’t need to. Simply wash it before using it for the first time is going to be fine!
What should be noted while using the wok?
Basically you can just switch on fire and use this wok without worrying. For maximising its durability, you may want to:
- Use silicone spatula only. Under heat, coating on all non-stick pan will be less solid. If you use a rigid spatula it may scratch the coating fairly easily. Also avoid using the wok to cook food with bones/ shells
- Use sponge or cloth for cleaning. Avoid using wire brush or scouring pad
- Avoid heating the pan under high heat for long time
- After cooking avoid soaking the wok in cold water. You may:
- Let it cool down first
- Pour hot water and let it rest for awhile
- Wet some kitchen towel and wipe clean the wok (the most convenient way!). Watch the video
The silicone spatulas we are using. One was bought at a $12 Shop and the other one was bought at LC. Of course you should never use a metal spatula, but for a wooden one or hard plastic, you should also get rid of them because they are relatively harder than silicone and will have higher change to scratch the coating.
These points are also applicable to all sorts of non stick pans so it’s worth paying attention to them.
How to maximize its non-stickiness?
That’s fairly easy. Just do the basic cooking steps: Preheat the wok with oil. After adding the food do not turn the heat too high to prevent it from getting charred.
It’s fine whether you add oil to a cold wok or heated wok. Just make sure you don’t burn the wok on high heat without oil for too long.
How to handle burn marks?
When food is overheated and water evaporated out, it becomes charred and leaves burn marks on the wok. Sometimes when the burn marks leave between the fibre pattern on the wok, it can be tricky to clean. Follow the below steps to clean the wok:
Burn marks leave between the fibre pattern even after cleaning by detergent
Add some baking soda
Add a bit of water and boil it for awhile
Clean the wok again by a sponge and it will look handsome again!
But please be reminded that it’s perfectly normal to have some burn marks after some use. For a normal dark color PTFE pan the burn marks are camouflaged while the burn marks on Avocado wok are crystal clear. We don’t need to always over-clean the wok as leaving a little oil on the wok help facilitate its non-stickiness
The stronger alternative is this coconut white cleaner. It’s available on HKTVmall.
How long can this wok be used?
All non-stick woks can be damaged under long time exposure of high temperature and scratching. Depending on your using habit, normally the wok can be used for a few years. If it’s discovered that the wok is worn out and become less non-sticky you may need to consider changing another one. We have used the wok quite intensively in these few months and it works just like when it’s new. You can rest assure about its quality.
It’s also worth mentioning that many non-stick woks you find in the market are in black color or rock pattern. It’s a kind of camouflage to hide the scratches. For the Avocado Wok, scratches, if any, are easier to be seen. The wok can continue to be used safely if mild scratches are found.
These are the Q&As we have so far thought of. Feel free to let us know if you have other questions. We will keep this page updated.
