Great Wok
Really well constructed Wok. Seasoning process was easy and resulted in a nice non stick surface. We use this wok for cooking all types of dishes as the even heat distribution is great for cooking vegetables and meats alike. With the sturdy build of this wok I plan to cook many meals for years to come.

Couldn't get the factory lacquar off
I wasn't succesful in removing the laquar using boiling water. I returned it rather than start all over again. I bought it figuring if I pay more maybe the coating wouldn't be such a pain, but it's the same as a $10 wok you pick up in a grocery store. The handle is a bit longer which is nice over high heat, and the handle is removable if you want to store in a tight spot.

Works like a charm
I'm new to cooking with a wok so I wanted to pick up something inexpensive to hone my skills. This wok is constructed very well and the long handle makes it very easy to control despite the wok's overall weight. Cooking with this wok couldn't be easier. I can't imagine any of the more expensive woks giving you better results to merit the price. Save yourself a few bucks and pick this up!

Great wok!
I used this wok in a class and decided to buy it for home. I've only just seasoned it and used it once for making a stir fry. It cooked beautifully and I love the handle. Though I haven't done it for a while, I love stir frying and expect to use this pan often.

Great product
This wok is very high quality. Love it. Heats evenly and works great. My mother told me that steel woks have very different care needs from nonstick or other pans, so I went on YouTube to see how it should be done. That was very helpful.
I only wish there was a lid for steaming.

Had to return it
The lacquer is very difficult to remove. The instructions that came with this wok simply said to scrub with a scouring pad and dish detergent to remove the lacquer, which we did. We used the scratchy side of a scotch bright sponge, then continued with the seasoning process as directed. Th lacquer apparently was not off the pan and it melted off creating fumes and smoke. It was a mess and we just decided to try a different wok. Fortunately Sur La Table was amazing and took it back. The manager said we should have used salt to scrub the lacquer off....but the instructions did not say that! I'm sure if we had more experience with carbon steel pans and removing the lacquer it may have been fine, but for us it was a mess. I wish the instructions had been more detailed.

Is the handle removable?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2015
Best Answer: The long handle IS removable. It can be unscrewed quite easily, and arrives with the handle removed to save space during shipping.

So we followed the instructions on the packaging, scrubbing the wok with the rough side of a blue scotch bright sponge after boiling water in it , then seasoning it as instructed. We ended up with a complete mess. My guess is that we didn't get all the lacquer off with the scotch bright sponge, and managed to burn off/melt the lacquer on the bottom of the pan. Smoked up the house and our pan looks horrible. Tried scrubbing it again and can see chips of burned lacquer coming off the bottom of the burned pan. Should I pick up some steel wool pads to scrub it with and try again? This is way more complicated than I had in mind.
Robin C on Dec 31, 2015
Best Answer: Seasoning the wok is fairly straightforward, although it takes multiple steps, including cooking in it a few times. These multiple steps build the non-stick patina that you will love. During these multiple stages, the wok will look patchy and kind of ugly. But the last thing you want to do is scrub it down before the magic happens. If you are sure the the problem is burned lacquer, then yes, scrub it off and start again. Ours did not have this problem. Try Google to see the stages of seasoning. If yours does not look like the others, then consider returning the wok or just scrubbing out and starting anew. Good Luck!

I just purchased this wok and am reading the instructions for the 'first cleaning'. After the boiling water stage, the directions say to 'vigorously scrub inside and out with hot water, mild dish soap and a 'scouring pad'. What is meant by scouring pad? A Brillo pad? Or, a Scotch Brite non-scratch scrub sponge? The store person didn't seem certain about this.
A shopper on Aug 31, 2015
Best Answer: I just used a Scotch Brite non-scratch scrub and it worked fine. Hope you enjoy your wok as much as I do.

Is it dish washer safe?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2015
Best Answer: I personally wouldn't. Woks are similar to cast iron pans and do better with hand washing and no/or very limited soap (most knowledgable chefs do not use soap for cast iron/carbon steel pans). The reasoning for this is with more use, the more seasoning builds up! Over time, as the seasoning builds, the wok acts similar to a non stick pan!

If you were to wash this in the dishwasher, it would likely rust and your food will most likely stick!

My stove was not strong enough to boil all that water. Is scrubbing twice with hot water sufficient to remove the coating? Is the coating toxic?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2016
Best Answer: We were not successful at getting the lacquer off...until my husband tried to season and cook with it and the lacquer started chipping off into our food and filling the house it's fumes. We returned it and the manager said it comes off if you scrub it will salt or a stainless steel scrubber.

What is the height of this wok?
A shopper on May 24, 2015
Best Answer: It's about 3 1/2 inches to the rim. The handle adds another 3 inches. It's the best Wok for the money.

I am debating to buy this. What type of lid will go with this? Does anyone one own any glass lid that fit this wok?
KarKim T on Sep 10, 2015
Best Answer: We have been most pleased with this wok, and recommend it to anyone looking for a solid product.

Because the wok prepares food at extremely high temperatures, we don't use a lid on it (and doubt that one is recommended). The bowl of the wok is deep, and there is not much splatter.

It's a great product - we are buying another for our son.

What gauge is the thickness of the metal? 14g or 18g?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2015
Best Answer: I do not know the thickness, but it is the perfect weight. It also seasoned beautifully. We followed the instuctions for seasoning in a Chinese stir fry cookbook. After about six weeks it developed the correct patina and is now virtually non-stick. Looks great, too.

How will I know when the protective coating comes off during the initial cleaning?
pamela w on Jan 17, 2016
Best Answer: It's difficult to ascertain, but if you look up detailed instructions for how to do it properly and follow them, you should be fine. I found that even after scrubbing it vigorously in warm soapy water with a metal scouring pad that it still seemed to retain some of the factory coating. However, I don't think enough of it was left to be harmful to one's health. The Wok Shop has great info on seasoning your new wok: just Google "the wok shop seasoning". Hope that helps, and happy wok'ing!

Does this work well with an induction cooktop?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2015
Best Answer: I don't have an induction cooktop, I have a gas stove, and it heats up quickly. The wok does have to be seasoned after every use so I an contemplating investing in an all clad.
