There's nothing quite like a tasty stir fry, but even those with fancy (and expensive) woks will often notice that they just can't get their food to match the tasty intensity of their favorite Chinese restaurant. As it turns out, the missing magic is what the Chinese call wok hei, which means "breath of the wok."
Essentially, it's not just what you put in the pan, or the pan itself that makes your stir fry kick -it's also the heat source.Unfortunately, most kitchens aren't equipped with burners that can get as hot as those in traditional Chinese restaurants, which means your food isn't searing like it should be and instead is partly stewing on the stove.
Glen Lee, inventor of hinged chopsticks, has a solution that he calls the WokMon. So what makes the WokMon rock? Well, it allows you to focus the force of your burner so you can create one massive flame that can improve your wok skills in an instant.
The WokMon is made from two simple parts, one that focuses the flames and one that provides a nesting spot for your wok. Best of all, you don't have to install the device and it's easy to use, so you can toss it on when you want to use your wok and pop it off when you're done.
Interested? Then head to Crowdzu, where you can help fund the project and become one of the first people to get your hands on the WokMon. The first level funding tier to include the WokMon is already sold out, so if you want to get your hands on one, head over there now to get yours for $42 (after that the price jumps to $50).
