Before the first use, wash the wok with only hot water and your brush. Our MAKO Wok is pre-seasoned, so you can use it immediately. Dry your wok with a clean kitchen towel or place it over a medium heat until no moisture remains.


Always let your wok cool down before using cold water, otherwise warping may occur. Once your wok is cool, clean it with warm water and your brush or a scratch-free sponge. Use as little detergent as possible because it often contains acid that may damage your patina layer or cause rust. Never put your wok in the dishwasher.

If your wok needs a little extra cleaning, pour in a small layer of water and bring it to the boil. Let the water cool down, then remove the residue with your brush or spatula. This doesn’t affect the patina layer, but it should lift away any stubborn food remains.

Wooden utensils should be handwashed and dried immediately. Do not place in the dishwasher.


After cleaning, place your wok over medium heat until no moisture remains. Then add 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil and use some paper towel to wipe the oil over the interior surface of the wok while it’s hot (be careful!). This helps protect your wok and build a beautiful patina. Now store the wok in a dry space.

Please don’t stack extra pans on top of your wok, as this may cause damage to its surface. If you do, try placing some paper towel in your wok to help protect it.


What is a patina?

One of the best parts of owning a MAKO Wok is the natural patina that will build over time on the surface of your wok. This adds flavour, increases the natural non-stick ability and enhances the cooking experience. Each time you use your wok, this patina will build further.

To maintain your patina, it is important to carefully follow our cleaning and aftercare instructions.

What stovetops does it work on?

Because of the flat bottom, it works on all stovetops, including induction.

Can I put it in the dishwasher?

No! Please don’t put your MAKO in the dishwasher as this will damage both the wood handles and the patina layer. The Mako is very easy to clean with our handy wok brush.

Why is the wok pre-seasoned? What does this mean?

It can often take years to develop a proper seasoning on a plain carbon steel surface and be quite difficult to achieve. By pre-seasoning the MAKO Black Steel 14, we’ve accelerated the seasoning process. Meaning your wok will perform as it should – immediately – straight out of the box.

How do we pre-season the wok?

Our unique black steel is created using natural oils and heat treatment to create the natural, chemical-free, pre-seasoned wok.


Are there E-book's available?

Marion Grasby and Mama Noi's cookbooks are currently only available in hardcover.

Are they all Asian recipes?

No. MARION Recipes and stories from a hungry cook, Always Delicious, and Just as Delicious are not Asian cookbooks, although they do include some amazing Asian recipes! In MARION Recipes and stories from a hungry cook, Always Delicious, and Just as Delicious, you will find the food that brings Marion great joy (hello, stir-fries, fusion pasta and fried chicken), but it wouldn’t be a Marion Grasby recipe without a little Asian twist.

Is Mama Noi a professional chef?

Yes, starting her culinary education in Bangkok, Mama Noi completed her professional chef certificates in Australia and has worked in professional kitchens, cooking western dishes and cuisines from all over Asia.

How is Always Delicious different from Just as Delicious?

When Marion wrote Always Delicious, she wanted to capture what people loved most about her food and lifestyle channels: the tips, techniques and, most importantly, recipes that work. But it felt like only a small slice of the pie, so Just as Delicious was written – the perfect accompaniment to Always Delicious.

Are there product recipes that will require us to use your products?

Nope! Mario and Noi wanted their recipes to be accessible for everyone all over the world.

What's the cooking level of the book? (eg. easy / hard)

While dishes vary in complexity, Marion Grasby’s recipes are for the home cook, so are absolutely achievable in home kitchens for people of all abilities. What’s more, rather than just sharing the steps to make a delicious plate of food, Marion has offered her tips and techniques to explain the why behind the method. Scattered throughout the book, you’ll also find QR codes which, when scanned, will take you to helpful videos, too.

Can Marion sign it?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer signed copies of MARION Recipes and stories from a hungry cook, Always Delicious, and Just as Delicious.
