It's not junk in the trunk, it's precious cargo.

My roommate has ruined my darling wok, so now I need to buy another. I just have no clue of a reputable brand that makes ones as good as the one I just lost (the makers of mine discontinued it a couple of months after I bought it). I would especially prefer it if the thing is built to last for an eternity. Price is also a large factor. So.....can anyone help me here?

Kisah, I don't suppose you'd have a name to pull out of your hat?

I'd get a proper chinees one if I was you and follow the instructions on how to season it my mum has always done that and she's never had any problems with them and she's been doing wok cooking for at least 20 year and is only her 2nd wok the only reason she replaced it is because her original had metal handles and she wanted a wooden handle. They are also verging on impossible to ruin if you burn something on you scoure it and reseason.

The last one I had was a teflon version of the proper Chinese ones. I loved it so. I'd love to get a proper Chinese one, I just have no clue where.

Sorry if this doesn't help but we (well, my dad) always buys woks from an oriental cash and carry - which I'm assuming would be a wholesaler or something. He got a massive wok for bout 10. . . So if you have a Chinese wholesaler near you I'd recommend checking it out! Also, repeating the wisdom of Cath, if you get a Chinese wok you gotta season it which isn''t difficult!

Happy wok hunting!

I'm going to run down to the Seattle Resturant Store and see if I can pick up something for cheap there. It's all professional-grade stuff, so as long as it's a decent price it'll be good. I'll let ya'll know what happens.
