In Chinese cuisine the preparation of fine cut ingredients by stir-frying in a shallow cooking vessel (wok) is widespread.

Conventional industrial cooking and frying equipment cannot match the dynamics of the stir-frying process in small scale. In collaboration with industrial partners we invented a set of new principles for carrying out continuous stir-frying successfully in large scale, and we have applied internationally for a patent.
