How to stir fry on a range cooker!

Stir frying on a range cooker? Pre-heat the pan in the roasting oven first (don't forget your oven glove 😮). Don't use a wok (not enough contact with hotplate for effective heat transfer) but rather a wide based heavy frying pan.
When you are ready to stir fry, move the pan to the boiling plate and off you go. The boiling plate is at is hottest when the lid is first opened, so save that heat for when your ingredients are ready, rather than heating the pan up while you chop!
