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.
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.
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.
