Description

The Wok Stirrer design perfectly fits both round and flat-bottomed woks ... and it is safe to use on all Teflon-coated woks and round-bottomed frying pans.

The Wok Stirrer is handmade from selected salvaged and recycled Australian hardwood timbers which are sourced by the maker. The Wok Stirrer is 35 cm (13 1/2 inches) long and 6 cm (2 1/2 inches) wide with a handle thickness of about 1.8 cm (3/4 inch). The working blade is about 18 cm (7 inches) long. The utensil has an elegant long gently curved blade with a slight dish in its shape and is canted to either left or right as appropriate. The bottom shape of the working blade is evenly curved along its length to allow for excellent surface contact inside the walls of most woks. The handle shape is such that the stirrer can be comfortably grasped around the neck and rolled in the hand going around the wok. Furthermore, this utensil can be held around the top of the blade and used in a whisk or paddle motion.

This is a great implement for moving food around in the wok. It's the longest handled utensil in the Gilmour Design kitchen range, so you can keep your hand a fair way from the heat. It's also very strong because of it's thickness in the handle and neck ... to compensate for it's extra length.

The Wok Stirrer also makes a great mixing spatula ... for cake and bread mixes ... because it works really well in any round bottomed vessel. It is a more specialised utensil than most others in the range ... it does a narrow range of jobs, but it does them really well. The design first came to be in about 2001.

This product listing is for an item which will be selected from available stock ... or made to order. The item shipped will be like the pictures in shape and style but will vary in colour and wood type. The wood used is from select stock which is dried and seasoned and is ultimately suitable for utensil making. Rest-assured, you will receive the best selected stock item of the day.

Care for this utensil is very simple. Don't be scared to use it and wash it in the sink using normal practices ... hot water and dishwashing detergent are fine. Preferably keep it out of the dishwasher, although experience has proven that it won't kill it if the utensil ends up in there occasionally ... though the intense detergent will prematurely harm the surface and finish. Oiling is not really necessary ... but you can oil it if you want.

This utensil is sanded to a very smooth finish and is fully sealed with a penetrating food-neutral resin product. You do not need to oil this item as the sealing process creates an effective moisture barrier which will greatly slow down the oxidation process during the early years of its life. The utensil will last you a very long time and will age beautifully.



THE BACKSTORY ...

"I cook in a large old cast-iron wok a lot. It is quite heavy and can be made very hot. I wanted a wok utensil that was quite slim but evenly curved so as it could be easily 'pulled' around the sides of the wok … in a nice fluid motion, often holding the implement by the neck.

Many store-bought utensils just don't suit wok cooking ... or at least not for westerners cooking with a wok ... many are too square, too short or too flimsy. This design became my solution to a growing frustration with commercial cooking utensils that simply didn't do a good job for me ... the design has remained unchanged since about 2001." - Bob Gilmour: designer.

My beautiful stirrer is now gracing my kitchen utensil jar. Curvaceous, yes, but also sensual as the smoothly crafted handle fits so elegantly into my hand. This is my second Gilmour Design piece and my jar is clamouring for more.

Perfect wok/pan stirrer for my bigger pans. Grabbed this after loving the smaller one. Used to make chilli and it fit the pan edges perfectly.
