Also, what is a traditional wok made of? Materials. The most common materials used in making woks today are carbon steel and cast iron. Although the latter was the most common type used in the past, cooks tend to be divided on whether carbon steel or cast iron woks are superior.
Considering this, what is the best material for wok?
Should a wok be non stick?
A. Grace Young responds: Nonstick pans are not suitable for stir-frying because food simply doesn't sear or caramelize as well as when you use a carbon-steel wok. Stir-frying requires high heat, and only expensive high-quality nonstick cookware can safely be used on high heat.
