The construction is pretty good - big sturdy handle (a bit on the heavy side), a good body size of the wok itself. However, when I started using it, I began experiencing some issues...
(1) I have a ceramic cook top and you need to hold this as you cook; it will move around.
(2) I don't use anything other an wooden utensils with this, but I've noticed pretty bad scratches on the bottom. As a note, I also don't use it with anything over medium-high heat, just in case. I don't know what's causing the scratches when all that's been cooked in it is fried rice and vegetarian oyster omelettes. (We're vegetarian.)
(3) It's not quite non-stick; both my husband and I [hubby also cooks and he uses this more because he's better at Asian food] noticed that we still need to use a bit more oil to prevent the food from sticking and because of the scratches that somehow appeared, it's not helping.
(4) It's still not as big as we'd like, but I knew what I was buying so this aspect didn't affect my rating.
All in all, it's not bad, but it's far from the best. Or maybe the one we got was a dud? Either way, I wanted to love this! Now, I just use it when making things like fried rice. In short, it's not my go-to pan. I'm just worried that more cooking will render it useless with all the scratches it seems to be getting...

Over time the non-stick coating has worn away, even with using wooden or silicone coated utensils. I also always used a wash rag to scrub the food bits out because I'm particular about the condition of my cookware.
All of our other pots and pans have retained their non-stick coating, where as this one has not. We use the other cookware nearly every single day, and use this one maybe once a month.
As a side note the handles are riveted in place and have held up over time.
I would strongly encourage you to look elsewhere if you are looking for a quality non-stick wok. I had expected a better quality product from Sur La Table.
