Tip of the Day: Is that Wok Hot Enough?

Here are three easy ways to tell if your wok is hot enough to add oil:

  • Check for the “Smoke Signal.” The wok should be just starting to smoke slightly. (You may also see a slight blueish tinge on the wok bottom).
  • Do the water test. Throw a few drops of water into the wok. If the water sizzles immediately, the wok is hot enough.
  • Test for Heat. Hold the palm of your hand about 2 – 3 inches above the wok’s surface. You should be able to feel the heat.

Thank you for sharing, Rhonda!
