I was contacted by STONELINE Cookware. They asked me to review their STONELINE non stick wok.
I like the natural PFOAS-free non stick stone coating. The non stick micro-stone surface does not contain any toxic chemicals, and I couldn’t wait to see how stone cookware performed against my other non stick cookware sets.
A wok is a traditional metal Chinese cooking vessel with a small flat bottom and flared sides that is used for quick stir frying, deep frying, boiling, braising and searing meat, chicken, fish, pork and vegetables. The small flat bottom generates high heat that allows you cook food quickly, and the flared sides allows you to push food up the sides of the wok so they cook at a lower temperature as compared to food on the bottom that is in direct contact with heat.

No Oil Needed
With a regular wok, you need to use a lot of oil for flavor and to transfer heat from the pan to the food. A unique feature of this STONELINE non stick pan is the stainless steel plate on the bottom, which transfers heat directly from the burner to the pan. This unique feature not found on other non stick pans allows you can cook with little or no oil for healthy cooking.
What Utensils Should You Use?
To prevent scratching of the micro-stone coating, you should only use wood or silicone utensils in this or any non stick cookware. Usually to saute onions and garlic, you need alteast a tablespoon of olive oil in the pan.
I was able to saute onions, garlic, ginger and vegetables with no oil other than the few drops of olive oil to season the wok. Within a few minutes I had perfectly translucent onions and the garlic didn’t burn, which is a problem I frequently have with other pans.
Unique Lid Design with vent hole
The STONELINE Stone Cookware Non Stick Wok comes with a sturdy clear glass lid with a ventilation hole. With this unique design you can put a lid on the wok to prevent liquid splattering. The vent hole allows steam to be escape.
This is the best non stick wok I have used, since it comes with two large ergonomic handles. You can comfortably hold the wok in place with one hand, while you stir fry with the other hand.

The beauty the of stone cookware surface is this revolutionary non stick cookware is easy to clean. Depending on what you cook in it, you can either simply wipe down the surface with with a damp sponge or wet paper towel.
If you need to clean with a sponge and soap, dry with a towel and re-season with a few drops of oil. STONELINE cookware should be hand washed. A dishwasher may damage the coating and may void your warranty.
This is a very nice wok with a Non-stick surface. It is an adequate size for the average family.
The Wok is deep and well made and holds up for our daily use. The glass dome lid has a metal ring in the vent hole to protect the integrity of the glass. I like the double rounded handles.
This is much easier to clean and works very well on our induction cooktop.
My favorite pan to cook in! This washes well, cooks great, and feels much cleaner, safer than using teflon non-stick. The size is great too– not too big, not too small! I love it!
