Nicely done, Edgecraft, makers of the Chef’sChoice 1520 AngleSelect Diamond Hone Electric Knife Sharpener.

Oblong Pan Is A Bit Wok, A Bit Saucier

Royal VKB Boomerang Wok

Pots and pans are as simple as it gets when it comes to cookware. Just make ‘em out of something that can stand up to the heat while not spilling ingredients all over the place.

Beer Can Chicken Maker Makes More Than Chicken

Combination Vertical Roaster and Wok for beer can chicken on the grill

Beer can chicken making gadgets come in all shapes and sizes, but rarely do they double as anything else.

It’s my (wok) party and I’ll cry if I want to

Mini Table Wokset

There is no way this Table Wokset is a good idea. The small, 4-centimeter tall (really?) mini-woks may look colorful and appealing, but in no way could perform like, you know, an actual wok. With such a small area to work with, ingredients can’t be moved around to different temperature zones. That doesn’t even begin to touch on the question whether this crazy contraption can even put out the heat necessary for the high heat cooking commonly associated with wok cooking. Most likely, this 6-serving party set would do little more than make individual bowls of slightly cooked vegetables. Which, all in all isn’t such a bad thing: add some broth and have a soup party. For about $90, you can find out.
