What your wok, moisture and rust have to do with each other

Your wok is made of untreated, pure steel. It has no chemical or other coating in order to achieve the best possible, authentic cooking behavior. For this reason, it is up to you to protect it from moisture and wetness.

The fact that steel rusts in connection with moisture is a 100% natural reaction. 

Your wok and moisture
Whenever your wok comes into contact with liquids, you have to save it as quickly as possible by drying it completely and then rubbing it with a light layer of oil to prevent rust.
This also includes the natural moisture of leftover food.

So please do not use your wok to store leftovers after eating!

The ideal protection for your wok
After you've saved your wok from moisture, it's important to keep protecting it.

From our cleaning Tips and the previous paragraph, you already know that the wok can be additionally protected with a light layer of oil. 
Simply use a paper towel and rub the wok inside and out with a small amount of oil. 

How to properly store your wok
Make sure you store your wok in a safe, dry place. You should also avoid storing your wok with other metallic objects to prevent the transfer of rust film.
