Not for electric stoves

"I had a similar wok which I loved that I used on my electric stove until on the fifth use the non-stick coating chipped of at the bottom and I had to throw it out. I started shopping for a new wok and came across this one. Everything looked good until I put the wok on my electric stovetop. The bottom of the wok was not straight and did not come in complete contact with the stovetop, the wok was also shaky. I decided to heat it up to see how the heat is transfered. After a good 5 minutes of heating it on high, the bottom was slightly warm and the sides were cool. It is unusable on my electric stove. I wonder whether it was deformed during shipping or they are just deformed as they are. For those who have a gas stove it should not be a problem."

Absolutely Wonderful Wok

Pros: heats evenly and quickly, non-stick, easy cleaning
Cons: none
"I purchased this wok and the cheaper wok from nordic ware from Costco warehouse. This one is far more superior, hence the price. It is nice and big (as expected from a wok!!) so that you can stir fry your food around without worrying about it falling out. Also, because it is high and large, you can use bamboo steamers with it. The non-stick coating is excellent, absolutely nothing sticks to it so far. Naturally, you should only use wooden or bamboo utensils with it. This makes cleaning very easy and effortless. It also heats up very, very quickly and evenly. Even more so than my All-Clad Master Chef 2."

Not made to last

"At 14", the wok is large and a bit heavy to use with just one hand. You should be able to cook for a large family with it. The exterior nonstick coating is fragile and began to wear off on the first use on my gas range. The interior nonstick coating works well, but I wonder how long it will last given lack of durability of the exterior.
The metal is thin and heats very quickly. It is easy to burn food if you are not careful. Fortunately, the burnt food does not stick. I don't necessarily wash it after every use; a wipe with a paper towel can remove most of the residue."

Great multi-tasker

Pros: easy to clean, great nonstick, fasteven heating, large size
Cons: heavy, akward
"I bought this to replace an "authentic" wok I purchased that never really achieved the heat (even though it was carbon steel). This heats fast and evenly and is incredibly stable! I love the interior, because it allows me to move food up the sides and utilize the bottom for higher heat applications. It is big, and heavy, but the helper handle answers that issue. I can just tilt it and put it on the shelf, so I am lucky for that. It cleans like a dream and allows me to achieve the "wok chi" because it heats so well."
