Giveaway – Chinese Vegetable Cleaver

If there is one thing I’ve learned in my road to wok mastery it is that preparation is key. Without a proper “mise en place”, your stir-fry is bound to go awry. There are dozens of gadgets to help you cut, chop, julienne, and dice, but when you get down to brass tacks you find all you really need is a good knife. This Chinese vegetable cleaver is similar to what you’d find in kitchens across the world, with a wide flat blade perfect for scooping and scraping, a well-balance handle, and a razor-shop cutting edge, and…it could be YOURS!


Here’s what you need to do for a chance to win this cleaver – leave a comment on this post answering the following question:

What’s your favorite tip for making stir-frying easier? OR (if you’re new to Wok Wednesdays) What about stir-frying intimidates or confuses you the most?

Many, many, MANY thanks to Wok Wednesdays member Jennifer Thomas for her generous donation of this cleaver. Jennifer picked it up at Hong Kong’s famous cutlery store Chan Chi Kee. Jennifer, you rock!

The giveaway will run until 11:59pm Monday, September 30th. One winner will be chosen from the comments.
