A wok (Chinese: 鑊; pinyin: huò) is a type of cooking pan from China used for various cooking techniques, including stir frying. The cooking pan is said to have originated from karahi, a cooking pot from the Indian subcontinent. Due to its unique shape, a wok is able to distribute heat evenly in order to cook food on a precise manner.[1] More information on this topic is available at Wikipedia.
