This is me with a prototype of the WokMon. Unlike my earlier invention, EZ-Sticks, the WokMon was inspired by my own family’s struggles with preparing Chinese food using conventional gas burners.
This Everyday Review video is by Brian Chow of Chowtime, a multi-cultural, multi-generational cooking and lifestyle program, hosted by Brian and his father Herb that originally aired on Canadian television.
The WokMon device can help turn your average gas burner into a fire breathing stir frying machine. It also gets you one step closer to the coveted Wok Hei. An underpowered burner will allow the juices to build up in the pan, and the food will stew rather than stir-fry.
It’s all about achieving Wok Hei (pronounced “hay”), the almost indescribable flavor that is the defining quality of great wok cooking.
