Originally known as Nationwide Electrical Wholesale, Wok Culture is a family business and we originally distributed electrical home appliances around Australia.
We started as a tiny market stall in Paddy’s Markets in Sydney back in the 1980’s, focusing on supplying quality home appliances with the aim of helping people improve their lifestyle at home. Since then, we have shifted our focus to our love of culture, history and food.
Our family comes from a South-East Asian background where street food and wok cooking pretty much dominated daily life. As soon as you leave home in the morning, you would be greeted by bustling noises and a hit of aromatic spices, noodle soups, fresh fruit, juices, stir-fried noodles, pancakes, pan-fried dumplings – pretty much anything you can think of. Coming home after school or work, you’re greeted with delicious scents of stir fried noodles, vegetables, fried rice, seafood, deep-fried desserts, pan-fried sweets.

This experience is something that we’ve dearly missed and have strived to bring to Australia and beyond. We desperately wanted to bring this element of South-East Asia home to Australia and make it easily available so that everyone can create those delicious dishes in the comfort of their own home and enjoy it with their own families!
Now, we supply some of Australia’s strongest portable domestic wok burners. Our range of low pressure and high pressure gas stoves and wok burners allow anyone to become a chef in the comfort of their own backyard. The high heat allows crunchy, flavourful stir fries whilst our benches provide a finished, classy look to anyone’s alfresco kitchens. We have supplied restaurants, food market stalls, renowned chefs, caterers as well as temples and churches.
