Reader Heather sent us a link to this very interesting wok, and asked if anyone here has tried it. It's supposed to make stir-frying easier! We haven't tried it though — have you?
The Boomerang Wok was designed to help novice stir-fry cooks keep all their ingredients in the pan. The edge is cupped and curled back on itself, so that when you shove and toss the ingredients, they stay inside and don't flip out. It also supposedly lets you use a spatula to more easily stir and toss the vegetables. They also claim that it makes it easier to turn large pieces of meat or fish.
The claims are pretty stiff, though: "The Boomerang Wok means it is no longer necessary to lift up the pan; the skills of a Chinese chef are incorporated in this pan."
Really? Will this pan give you all the skill of a Chinese chef? What do you think? Has anyone tried this magical Boomerang Wok?
