Howdy!  Do you really need a wok for Asian cooking - especially stir fries?I am thinking of giving my mom a birthday present of a wok.  Do eople really need a wok to cook Chinese food or stir fries?Or, is this going to be a gift that just collects dust?

I have a wok-style (large frying pan with high sides) pan that I use regularly, but I don't have a standalone wok. Not sure if I'm missing out by not having a real wok, but it gets the job done!
