I recently purchased a wok and have completed 2 fried rice cooks (semi-sucessful). My issue is even with with highly rated welding gloves purchased from Amazon, my hand is getting extremely hot in a short amount of time. Does anyone have a specific brand and model that they have had a good experience with? I also have a stainless steel wok spatula that is taking off some the seasoning from my wok - should I ditch it and go bamboo or will the wok "toughen up" the more I use it? Thanks!
