The Best Steel For The Best Dish!

An interesting wok test compares the carbon steel wok again the stainless steel wok. There is a lot of debate over these two compositions of woks even if they look kite similar there are some important difference with their temperature reaction.

Most people prefer the carbon steel wok over the stainless steel wok because it has the most regular heat dispersion. This is not the case with stainless steel overheated and these hot spots can totally ruin a cooking and reduces long-term quality cooking. On the other hand, the carbon steel has good resistance to high temperatures and retains heat much longer than stainless steel woks for future use.

The only downside is that carbon steel requires slightly more maintenance to eliminate the appearance of rusting. We just needs to dry well and rub with 2 or 3 drops of oil to prevent any risk of rust.

To have a good wok stainless steel we have to choose the best quality of stainless steel and the final price may be higher than the carbon steel wok.  Overall, the carbon steel wok is a better choice for short and long term use.

A POTENTIAL SOLUTION TO THE BODY CAR IMPASSE

More than never the car industry is under pressure to find a way to reduce the car consumption without reducing their security, power or increasing dramatically the retail price.

The new popular cars are now smaller than 10 years ago and the reason is mainly cause by the increasing of the gas price and the tendency is not going to stop in the next few years. The cars industry is now working on the engine efficiency to reduce their cars consumption and they also work on the weight reducing. The engine efficiency is basically the same for every car dealer with some minor details on powertrain systems and no majors advances are expended in a near future. However, the frame and body is now the next target of the car industry is looking to improve their next car generation.

One of the future main advances in the car industry is the integration of the carbon on the car body with a low cost price. In fact racing cars and some of the new luxury car already have carbon fiber on their bodies and part, but the price just blow up and it’s a deadlock for medium and low budget cars. There are some studies for producing car body with carbon steel and this can be the solution to reduce the car weight and keep the price in a good range.
