Footnote
  • On2cook uses the term 'smart cooking device, not 'wok'. The startup is based in IN where the wok is known as the karahi. It is said the wok has it roots in IN and arrived in CN via SE Asia, thus possibly: karahi (india) → kuali (nusantara) → kuo (mandarin) → wok (cantonese) → wok (english).
