Prosperous Gold Fish (金鱼满堂 年年有余) by Rontree Chan

I have always enjoyed the taste and simplicity of stir frying. With this Tefal 28cm Character Wok Pan, it helps to facilitate quick frying and produces wonderful flavor. This wok not only cater for stir fry, it can also be used for steaming and braising! The non-stick interior is reinforced with mineral and titanium particles to make it more lasting and it come with an improved Thermo-spot design to help us cook confidently at the right temperature. It is so easy to clean and cook healthier foods. I’m already falling in love with this Tefal Character Wok Pan that makes my cooking easier and healthier. #TefalSG
