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.

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 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.

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.

Awesome Wok
This is a wonderful wok. I did extensive research before deciding on this one and glad I did.

On Seasoning
First - read the directions that come with the wok and also check Google and Youtube on Wok Seasoning. The methods are all pretty similar and should do the trick. First, there is a coating on the wok that needs to be removed. I found reviews where people tried Scotch Brite pads to remove the coating. I tried it and was a waste of time. The wok is steel so use steel wool soap pads - quickest way and won't hurt the wok. It takes a bit of elbow grease but it's worth it. Next, season with vegetable oil or other high temp oil. Your goal is to get a nice patina on the wok which acts as a non-stick coating (see photo). This takes a bit of time - between cleaning and seasoning took 1 to 1.5 hours (My guess regarding the review with 1 star is this person did not get the coating off). A word of warning: seasoning the wok will nicely stink up your house. You are basically scorching the oil to get the coating. If you have a propane burner (beer brewing, turkey frying, etc.), fire it up outside and do it there. Otherwise, be prepared to keep the windows open for a day or more.

My first use after seasoning was stir fried rice with vegies (check Youtube for these authors: "Seonkyoung Longest" and "caribbeanpot"). I was afraid the wok would still smoke and stink since it was the first use after seasoning but that didn't happen. The dish turned out perfect and I had to force myself to stop eating.

On Cleaning
Here is where the Scotch Brite pads come in handy. Rinse wok in hot water (don't use soap) and use a Scotch Brite (the blue pad which can be used on Teflon surfaces) to remove any stuck food particles. Rinse, dry and place on stove on medium heat to evaporate any residual water.

This is a high quality wok that I will enjoy using for many years.

Mylene B on Jun 10, 2016
Wanted a Wok that was at a reasonable price and high quality that I can use for a long time. Been using it for a while not and for the price and quality, no complaints. Some have said to beware of the handles coming off but I haven't had that problem but should check it from time to time just for safety's sake.

Because of the authentic characteristics of the wok. It is not coated with a teflon/non-stick surface. It is made of carbon steel and must be seasoned properly. That is what I wanted.

I have two and love them. My first one I bought I have had for 6 years this Christmas. When seasoned and cleaned properly these are great woks. If you like cooking on cast iron you will love these. I bought 3 more for my kids.

Sur La Table� Professional Carbon Steel Wok

How thick is the carbon steel for this product? The usual range for consumer grade woks is 1.2mm - 2.0mm.
A shopper on May 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's very thick--2.0mm by my mesuring. I have seen even thicker steel woks--only two: the USA made wok that the Wok Shop sells, and Chen's Professional series (with the ugly no-burn plastic handles).But Sur's wok is the prettiest and most well made of these choices, and still thick as heck. I highly recommend it
can this wok be used on a glass top oven?

I have a glass top electric oven - I am looking for a wok. Can I use this wok?
anne73 on Jun 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this wok can be used on a glass top stove
How much does this wok weigh?
Liliana S on Dec 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Weight: 6 lbs.
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 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.
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.
can you cook over induction heat?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes! Carbon steel works excellently on induction stovetops.
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!
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 do I season this pan and what if it has rust on it...what do I do now?
Irene H on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Here's a great article on preventing & removing rust from cast iron & carbon steel skillets:
According to a previous question, this wok is 6 pounds. Is it too heavy to lift with one hand when transferring the food to a plate?
A shopper on May 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is a hypothetical question lacking some facts to answer fully, so I can only answer from my point if view.
The answer would depend on what are you cooking, what is its consistency (liquid vs solid), what is its weight and what is the cook's strength?
I find that this is a solidly and well designed wok; I only have a dificculty transferring dishes that are mostly liquid, regular stir frys are not at all difficult.
What is the diameter of the flat surface?
G K on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, The bottom is flat, but the edges are a tad rounded. By my measurement, the bottom of the wok is 7". I got it as a gift for my husband and he absolutely loves it.
Where are the first time cleaning instructions for seasoning? Mine didn't have any ! Thanks
A shopper on Jan 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Soap and water does the trick nicely. Dry well.
Can this wok be used on a outdoor BBQ grill?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: not sure i gave it as a gift i think the handles would burn
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.
