The Misen Carbon Steel Wok is Pre-seasoned It’s ready to use right out of the box. But the more you cook with it, the stronger — and more naturally nonstick — it will become.

How to Build and Maintain your Wok’s Seasoning Supplies

  • A clean towel or paper towels
  • Seasoning wax or high-smoke point oil, such as canola, grapeseed, soybean, or vegetable oil


  • After cooking with your wok, wash it by hand, and then thoroughly towel dry, to prevent rusting.
  • Place the wok over medium heat on your stovetop.
  • Using the towel or paper towel, apply a thin layer of the seasoning wax all over the inside of the wok.
  • Continue rubbing it evenly all over the inside of the wok until you’ve soaked up the excess. There shouldn’t be any visible wax or oil remaining. The wok should appear dry—and not shiny, greasy, or wet.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool.


  • A properly seasoned wok should feel smooth to the touch. If you notice rough, uneven, or sticky patches, you may need to scrub those away with a sponge and apply a new layer of seasoning.
  • Scratch or damage your seasoning? Don’t worry. You can always rebuild it. Your wok is indestructible and will last a lifetime.

Benefits and Notes It's More Versatile Than You Might Know. Beyond stir-fries, it’s an excellent everyday tool for steaming, boiling, searing, frying, braising, and more.

  • It’s compatible with all types of stovetops, including induction.
  • Give your wok time to preheat before adding cooking oil or food. This will help prevent sticking.
  • We recommend wood or silicone utensils. Metal can be used, but it may scrape off your pan’s seasoning.
  • Your wok is fully oven safe up to 500ºF.
  • Avoid cooking high-acid foods for long periods, such as tomato sauce. These can strip away your wok’s seasoning. Small amounts — such as deglazing with wine — are fine.
  • To prevent rusting, don’t expose the pan to water for prolonged periods, and don’t allow it to air-dry. Towel dry your wok, and/or place over low heat to eliminate excess moisture.
  • The wok lid is not oven-safe.


  • Hand wash only — cleaning your wok in the dishwasher can cause it to rust.
  • If using soap, just a few drops will do. Excess soap can remove your pan’s seasoning.
  • Use only non-metallic scrubbers and brushes — highly abrasive materials will strip off the seasoning.
  • Dry thoroughly after washing, again to prevent the carbon steel from rusting.
  • For stubborn, stuck-on food, gently scrub using a non-abrasive sponge or brush, and re-apply a layer of seasoning once the pan is dry.

Great guy!
5 /5
I had narrowed my choices between two high end brands but each had different options and features, and honestly, I was overwhelmed. I posed a question on Google and Curated popped up so I filled out a bit of information. Admittedly I was snarky because I thought it would be a bot! Brad isn't a bot! LoL He's quite knowledgeable and helped me sort through the differences and found what best suited my needs. I'm very pleased with my experience with him and Curated and am looking forward to my next two purchases already chosen with his help. Thanks!|

This made shopping for cookware so much easier! Mike took into consideration my needs and made great recommendations. His finds were well though out and the explanations from Annette made it easy to follow on with questions to tailor the recommendations even further. I would definitely recommend and will probably use again in the future.

David was knowledgeable, patient with my questions and responsive!
5 /5
It is especially important to me that a salesperson is not pushy…I wasn’t sure at first, but I had a great Curated experience. David clearly has cooking experience to answer my questions the way he did, and he did research (temp tolerances) when he didn’t know a detail. So helpful! This was a great shopping experience; thank you!

Excellent First Experience!
5 /5
I stumbled upon Curated through a Google search when trying to find a new blender that would handle items like smoothies and soups better than my standard $30 countertop model now that we had started drinking/eating more of them. I was matched with Mike and he was amazing! He was responsive and accommodating to my schedule. He asked relevant questions which allowed him to make some great recommendations. When I made a choice and found the same item on sale on another site he was even kind enough to price match it for me. Mike has ensured that I will be back to Curated for all of my relevant needs in the future as we buy a new home at the end of this year and beyond.
