Here's some more information from Royal VKB:


Royal VKB Boomerang Wok

Boomerang Wok Stir-frying enables you put a delicious, varied and healthy meal on the table in no time at all. Unfortunately, when stir-frying some of the ingredients do tend to end up next to the pan.

However, with the Boomerang Wok this is a thing of the past! Thanks to the unique patented cupped edge of the Boomerang Wok, the ingredients can be turned with a simple movement of the spatula. The ingredients always end up back in the pan.

The Boomerang Wok not only makes stir-frying a bit easier, but larger pieces of food, such as a fillet of fish or meat can be turned in no time at all using the unique patented cupped edge.

The Boomerang Wok means it is no longer necessary to lift up the pan; the skills of a Chinese chef are incorporated in this pan. Stir-frying has never been as much fun and as easy, and the cooker stays clean!

The Boomerang Wok is suitable for all heat sources, has maximum heat conduction and is dishwasher safe. The Boomerang Wok is available in the colour of warm grey and is supplied in a matching protective cover to ensure that the pan remains beautiful for even longer.

    Great for cook and beautiful design!

  • fcchelsesa86

    This things is so heavy to lift…

  • Dan

    Since the technique of tossing/flipping food back into the pan is not difficult to master I dont like a tool that encourages lazyness in the kitchen

    • amsam

      I'm lazy, so I love it.

  • Chinese M

    This goes well with a list of other pointless kitchen utensil designs, e.g. the "special avocado cutter" or "egg slicer".
    Has the designer asked himself the fundamental question of "what is a wok"? A wok is not just simply a dish-shaped Teflon surface to "flip" food. It's usually a 2mm thick steel with ROUND base so it gets all the heat that's required from a GAS HOB in order to get the the food fried. This design will just cook the food like any another pan and the round end will not make any difference.

      totally agree.
      somehow the chinese cooking technique and cusine are not well understood by western people.

  • pocket sized

    if you really need this to cook effectively, most likely you are a moron

  • Guy

    I agree with Chinese M and want to add that they great thing about traditional woks is that their lightness allows them heat quickly and then quickly cook the food. This looks heavy and probably takes ages to heat… fine for a slow cook stew perhaps but hardly appropriate for the stir fry fare for which its marketed. Please please please when will designers do their research….
