Old Wok Refurbished
« on: August 24, 2017, 08:46 PM »
Hi Folks
            Many of you may have a similar wok to the one shown below, sadly mine is no longer fit for purpose having lost its non stick properties, but rather than chuck it out ( sentimental attachments etc) I decided to remove the remaining non stick coating and now have my go to curry wok, the following photos will show you its transformation, hope some one can get use of this idea.

I think it's a great idea something I would haver thought of with some of the old non stick pans I have....It looks almost new..You've changed my mind now about throwing mine out....What did you use to remove the coating....I've noticed some Italian chefs use the same style of pans..You can clearly see in the videos I've watched at some point the pans were once non stick but after years of use only some was left just around the rim...Thanks Paprika

Hi BB1
            Many thanks for your interest and response to my post, To answer your question the coating was removed using 80-120 grit sandpaper followed by Brillo pads/wire wool and soap. The top non stick coating was surprisingly tough, but once through this the remaining coating came away with the help of a little elbow grease. For those that prefer to use aluminium woks/pans, it would be advantageous to purchase cheaply, and remove the coating,
I have included photos below of the wok in use, A Korma prior to adding precooked chicken/yogurt and cream, and a chicken Jalfrezi.
