She has good directions for seasoning it. I went full Bill/SFNM and did twice as many cycles as she directs with flax oil. I've also been using it for deep frying, which I'm told further bonds the coating to the pan.

I bought the wok today but it didnít come with seasoning instructions. Do you know where I can find them? Thanks.

There is a link in the instruction booklet to a video with seasoning instructions. I can't seem to locate my booklet.

Years ago, I purchased a flat bottom, carbon steel wok from the Wok Shop in SF. It looks more basic than the one you purchased. Anyway, the link below shows their recommended seasoning method for their carbon steel wok. It appears to be the same wok that I purchased.

I know there's a lot of support for flaxseed but here's a dissenting opinion:


and serious eats recommends a different oil:

I went back and seasoned my wok for the first time and it cooks way better now.   Less oil needed for fried rice and the results were fantastic.   Better texture and it had that smokiness from the wok.  Thanks for posting this guys.
