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
read
“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)!

  1. Soyon — 12/10/10 @ 2:36 pm

    What an amazing idea… I’ve been looking for the “perfect” wok for years! Maybe not for this Christmas, but I’ll have to put this on my wish list!

  2. kaszeta — 12/10/10 @ 2:38 pm

    Not entering, since I already have enough woks… But I always love seeing thin cast iron woks instead of the steel ones. Nobody believes me that a cast iron wok can be thin until they see mine (from SF’s Wok Shop)

  3. ARLENE FROOMAN — 12/10/10 @ 3:29 pm

    woks are wonderful

  4. Thanks Jaden for the great plug. I got many orders through your fans esp. from your cookbook! Happy Holidays to your beautiful family. Hope you visit Miami again soon.

  5. Livia Blackburne — 12/10/10 @ 6:49 pm

    Yay!

  6. Joan Nova — 12/10/10 @ 7:05 pm

    Eleanor is a wok star!

  7. Hi Soyon, what do you consider a ‘perfect’ wok? It can be used to cook most anything, not just Asian stir frys.

  8. Keisha Alston — 12/11/10 @ 1:12 am

    I love woks.

  9. Nicole — 12/11/10 @ 4:48 am

    Nice set!

  10. Connie Z. — 12/11/10 @ 10:38 am

    Jaden,
    Thanks for the extensive suggestions for woks and fried rice in your book. My husband has been mastering shrimp fried rice this summer/fall thanks to all of your tips.

    Connie Z.

  11. Susan C. — 12/11/10 @ 10:50 am

    I’ve never had a wok, and this one includes everything a beginner would need! Thanks for the chance to enteryour giveaway.

    I love cooking Chinese food and this kit includes many things I wish I had.

    I would love this! I love this style of cooking

  14. MaryAnn — 12/11/10 @ 12:45 pm

    a cast iron wok, and instruction from Ms. Hoh? Gotta have it! And what a great name Cooking Like A Wok Star! Thanks Jaden

  15. JeanneW — 12/11/10 @ 2:49 pm

    this is something that would get a lot of use at my house

  19. I Play Outside The Box — 12/12/10 @ 5:32 pm

    To win this would certainly make me ‘Play Outside The Box’ …as I’ve never done any cooking in a wok…but I’ve always wanted one. Thank you so much for the chance to win this great giveaway!!

  20. Jeane Campbell — 12/12/10 @ 9:24 pm

    love the idea of a cast iron wok..

  25. Nidia — 12/13/10 @ 10:11 am

    I love cooking and enjoy making beef fried rice in my wok. My family enjoys the Chinese fried rice I make and the wok is such a necessary essential. I also enjoy using the Hoisin sauce which compliments your Chinese meal. I hope I win, I would love the Wok Set which I don’t have. Thanks Jaden

  26. Clifford — 12/13/10 @ 2:40 pm

    I didn’t know that there was such a thing as a thin cast iron wok..would love to win this!

  27. Alice — 12/13/10 @ 5:06 pm

    Thanks for this fantastic giveaway!

  28. Wow,I am thrilled so many folks are into wok cooking! I was hesitant to do a Giveaway at first because I explained to Jaden that I want to make sure people understand what my Kit is all about. Just a few pointers: I don’t teach traditional Chinese food or use recipes. The wok is a vessel for cooking most anything, not just Asian stir frys. Once you ‘get’ my visual roadmap technique, you can adapt this technique to make ‘recipes’ from Jaden’s wonderful cookbook or any of your fav recipes. So, I hope you will take a little time upfront to watch the instructional DVDs because it’ll ‘transform’ your whole cooking experience. Hearing from successful Wok Stars has been the most rewarding part of what I do.

  29. Susan in Seattle — 12/14/10 @ 2:23 am

    Oh, winning this would be just wonderful! I just got a new Wolff cooktop which is quite capable of heating a wok to proper temp. and I love the idea of seeing a dvd that would inspire me to use a wok more than I do. Thanks for the chance to win one!

    i love this one.

  47. I love your dream, maybe you’ll get a chance to fulfill it.

  48. Thx Shulie for support.

  49. Lisa Kunizaki — 12/21/10 @ 9:11 am

    Hi Jaden!
    I’ve never owned a wok and this prize looks amazing. I’ve always done my “woking” in a frying pan. Pretty bad. Since I discovered your web site I’ve found so many great easy to make recipes. I’ve just recently gotten into cooking and I’m loving it.
    Thank you.
    Lisa
