Today I purchased a new wok.
This is not something I planned to do. I’ve been happy with the one I have, dispite the grimy rivets, beat-up handle and warped, burned bottom. Like an old blanket, it’s just something I’m comfortable with.
My wife isn’t. She doesn’t like the way it tilts when resting on the burner. She is put off by the fact that, even when cleaned, the cooking surface sheds a little bit of rust (especially when not protected by a light coating of oil). She doesn’t like the cheap lid.
