Giveaway: Wok Star Kit

My friend, Eleanor Hoh is the genius behind Wok Star Kit (value $145.00) – a light cast iron pre-seasoned wok and instructional set.

It’s one of my favorite woks and does magic for stir fries. She’s giving us one set to give away!

With the Wok Star Kit you’ll achieve delicious, homestyle dinners in thirty minutes with little cleanup.  What’s unique about the Wok Star Kit is that both the tools and techniques are provided so you’ll have a complete experience.

The no-recipe, no-measuring, no-calorie counting technique is simple and
easy to follow. It’s Easy Style Cooking with an Asian Flair.

One of the essential elements of wok cooking is high heat.  If you have
an electric cooktop, it will not work with a round bottom wok.  Please
“A Note About Your Heat Source” on the Stir Fry Stove page.

Wok Star Kit Includes:

  • 15″ Pre-seasoned, Lightweight Cast Iron Wok with lid, spatula & my unique magnetic wok mitt
  • Instructional videos
  • A laminated stir fry crib sheet for your fridge door
  • Caddy basket organizer with “squirt, squeeze, & shake ” dispensers for your Asian seasonings
  • Free Asian seasonings to get your started

Congratulations to our winner(s)!

    A wok is a skillet with high rise walls, right?

    • SteamyKitchen — 1/10/11 @ 9:46 am

      A wok is like a saute pan with higher sloping sides, you can use a saute pan if you want. A skillet, or frying pan is too shallow for stir fries, all your ingredients will spill out!

  35. Mary Hall — 1/9/11 @ 9:00 am

    Would love to try this!

    just a question … how come the winners names are not given in this latest round of closed giveaways? the last line in the postings reads ‘congratulations to the winners’ but no names … this has happened in more than one of the giveaways that ended after the beginning of the year.

    • SteamyKitchen — 1/10/11 @ 3:44 pm

      Hi Sadie – that’s strange – all the giveaways + winner selection + winner posting happens automatically w/o human interaction on our part! ;-)

      I’ll look into it.
