Ming Wok Special and needing to season inside and outside of pan with vegetable oil?
They need to make a kitchen category…..
I purchased the new wok set with steamer basket and round stainless steel skimmer, but am surprised at the directions Ming stated on his care instructions.
Wash and dry the wok then season it with vegetable oil inside and out?
This item is not heavy cast iron which requires special care and seasoning with no washing with soap, but I cannot fathom why this would have to be done on this type of kitchen item from the Simply Ming Collection of items.
I am also waiting for his grill oval pan and it has the same coating. I hope those instructions are not the same as above..
Also under his care instructions for his Wok with the Platinum Coating it states not to use olive oil. Why not if you use a light setting to cook food in? If you do not blast the wok with high heat the olive oil should not burn. I bought the wok for the size and not just to use high heat at high temps. Any input would be appreciated here.
Also when using woks on high heat I was always told by Chefs to use peanut oil, since it will not burn using high temperatures, and most Asian foods are cooked in peanut oil.
Anyone else wonder what kind of coating his new Platinum coating is, and I also wonder if it is safe to use with pet birds, because I know Teflon is not.
Tried calling to get information in vain, so posting here and all suggestions from other members who have already bought and used these same Simply Ming kitchen items with the Platinum coating, would be appreciated
It seems on CHEF Ming Tsai’s televised HSN presentatioln he said no oils or butters needed, so if that was true why are there contraditions in his use and care instructions included with the item, which require using the vegetable oil to season the pan, and only using vegetable oil in the pan, but no olive oil?
Seems the HSN Ming Tsai Wok presentation was spoken with fork tongue:).
I will use peanut oil for Asian cooking in the Ming Wok since that is what all Asian Chefs state to use, and I always used peanut oil since it can withstand a wok’s high heat, but as for the other care of seasoning the pan before using it I will have to see if I can get a reply from the Manufacturer and keep trying. I tried to no avail so far.
If I get the information I will update here again TECHGIRL:)..
Hi… I ordered this pan. I don’t plan on seasoning it at all – just plan on adding seasonings when I cook in it but no oils.. And I thought he said on the presentation that it does not require any oils or butters?? That was the main reason I bought this, in addition to the size and I thought it was a good deal.
