King Kooker 24WC Review – My Opinion

When I had a gas stove I used a wok a lot. Now I have to cook on an electric stove I found that there is not enough heat on them to use a wok properly. It just does not get hot enough!

I had a good look and read tons of reviews of the 24WC and think it is a decent product that cost just under a $100. Not top quality but when taking care of and seasoned the right way it can last a long time.

“I never had a wok that did not needed to be seasoned and it did surprise me that people complaint about rust. “

Just as a cast iron pan a wok needs to be seasoned first and after every use.

I have read several ways of seasoning the King Kooker 24WC and the most used one, and one I use, goes like this.

  • Wash and scrub it with hot water and dish soap.
  • The first step should actually be to heat up your oven to about 400 Fahrenheit.
  • After washing just dry it of very fast and stick it in the 400 degrees oven for about 30 minutes.
  • Take it out of the oven and let it cool.
  • Rub it with cooking oil. Inside and outside
  • Place it back in the oven for 3o minutes.
  • Many people repeat this step 3 or 4 times for an optimum result.

Now your wok should be seasoned and ready to be used.

“Now, after every use you have to wash it and coat it with a fresh coat of cooking oil to prevent it from rusting!”

If you are in the market for a outdoor cooker of a little higher quality I suggest you to have a look at my opinion of the FIREDISC Cooker that is more than just a wok but also 3x times as expensive.

Overall the King Kooker 24WC can be considered as a good buy for the price you pay for it and the features it has.
