Has anyone discovered a carbon steel wok with a folding handle?
This pan works very well as a wok and at this price you can gift it to a friend on the trail if they have eyes on it. most wal-marts have then in stock in the camping area.
the flat bottom heats up very hot and is stable on most burners so no need for a wok ring. after time you will get some build-up around the rivets but SOS can fix that and reseason or just ignore it

to pack easier, we use a wok with loop handles and then just stack other items in the wok for travel and the loop handles make it easy to put in drawer without a long handle getting in the way.

we have a few pots and pans with folding handles and those probably wouldnt be stable enough for a larger wok. i have the same pan @Kozysnack just posted and it works well as long as i dont overload the pan

The one I originally posted is from The Wok Shop. It's a small flat bottomed carbon steel, made in USA.

Attached images: Newly seasoned, packed and unpacked. The red lid is silicone, it also makes a decent pot holder.


They have dozens of different woks many of which are Made in USA (if that matters).

We prefer the single handle for frequent wok action like flipping veges and tossing eggs...

I found the short handled wok packs fine in our Trofast bin along with a number of smaller items to pack around it and in it.

Anyway, I highly recommend at least looking at the wide variety of designs, materials, and sizes that The Wok Shop has to offer.

We carry a wok in the FJ. Ours is some second hand one we found at a Goodwill that just keeps going. It's so versatile that it has replaced darn near every cooking pan. You can boil water, fry up food and cook steaks etc etc. I hadn't ever contemplated making popcorn with it however. Solid suggestion. We carry a dutch oven otherwise and call it good. Ours has loop handles and sits fine on either the fire pit or our stove.

I've been binging Kung-Fu movies on YT. I noticed that they use woks for the fire pit when cooking in the home courtyards. Fill it with wood and fire it up!
We've made bao and steamed dumplings on the wok before with a bamboo steamer while in camp. It helps to make all the dumplings ahead of time by dang is it worth it.

My mouth is watering just reading about it
