This carbon-steel wok heats quickly and exceptionally well. It is very roomy: use it for family-size stir-fries as well as steaming, braising, and deep-frying. Though traditional Asian woks have round bottoms and two short handles, this one, with its flat bottom and long handle, may be more comfortable for American home cooks. The flat bottom can be used on either gas or electric cooktops and makes the pan more stable than the classic round-bottom pan. There is a small helper handle on the other side, making the pan more manageable. The handles are made of phenolic plastic, which keeps them cool. Oven-safe up to 350-degrees F.
The only thing that would make this Wok a "5" on the rating scale is if it was available with a lid/dome cover. It is a deep wok so that you can put food up on the sides to cook at a lower heat. I thought about purchasing some of the more expensive woks on cooking.com, thinking to myself, "If they're so much more expensive, then they must be that much better." It's just a wok and this is a solid product. I recommend it.
I like carbon steel woks, because you can heat them up to temps that might cause non-stick coatings to burn off. On this wok, I like the flat bottom because of better heat distribution. I also like the phenolic handle which looks like it will stay attached, and keeps cool.
This is the first flat bottom wok I have owned. It did not take long for me to appreciate its quality and style. The quality of the product itself is head and shoulders above most offerings on the market today. And the flat bottom style, while unique, adds a functional plus to the whole wok experience.
I am not happy that when water is left on it it will rust.
