Sometimes wok rings are just too flimsy and move too easily on your stove or wok burner. The cast iron wok stands below will fill the bill when it comes to stabilizing your wok. These cast iron stands will solidly support your round-bottomed wok or your flat-bottomed wok. Cast iron wok stands are not made for electric stovetops either ceramic/glass tops or electric coil tops.
There are many styles of cast iron wok stands. Below are a few of those styles. I suggest you go to Amazon and read the reviews on these stands prior to purchasing one to see which one you will like and will fit your needs.
Make sure that the cast iron wok stand you order will fit your stove.
