Why it is important that the La Gourmet Wok is 5-Ply :
-Stainless Steel though hygienic, lacks good heat conducting qualities, so to be effective for cooking stainless steel must be combined with more efficient heat-transmitting metals like aluminium or copper. La Gourmet 5-Ply 18/10 stainless steel wok has 3 layers of aluminium sandwiched in between the 18/10 stainless steel which enables the wok to have excellent heat conducting capabilities.
-Thus La Gourmet 5-Ply 18/10 Stainless Steel Woks has the versatility of stainless steel and aluminium’s heat efficiency.
