Surface Cooking

Using the wok stand (accessory not included)

The Wok Stand is designed to allow round-
bottomed woks to be used. It is recommended
that you use a 14 inch diameter (35.5 cm)
or less Wok. It is recommended that you use
the POWER burner with the wok stand for best
performance. If properly positioned, the Wok
Stand will not slide off the grate.
Always use potholders to remove the wok stand
from the grate. Allow the wok stand to cool before
removing. Do not set hot wok stand on surfaces that
cannot withstand high heat; such as countertops.
Be sure the Wok Stand is positioned correctly and
stable before use to prevent hot spills and possible
To Properly Position the Wok Stand:
With the grate in position over the burner, set the
Wok Stand on top of the grate positioning the
notches in the Wok Stand over the cooktop grate
fingers (See Figure 1).
The Wok cooking performance is best on the
POWER burner.
Be sure to ALWAYS use the Wok Stand if the
stability of the wok is uncertain. If cooking large
amounts of liquid food without the Wok Stand, the
wok may tip and spill over causing burns.
Flat-bottom woks with large flat bottoms may
also be used on your cooktop Surface Burner
Grates without the Wok Stand (See Figure 2).
Insure the stability of the flat-bottom wok before
cooking without the Wok Stand. If unstable, DO
NOT use the flat-bottom wok without the Wok
Round-bottom woks (with a support ring)
should NOT be used (See Figure 3). The
supporting ring was not designed for proper or
stable use on the Surface Burner Grates.
