Good wok
I have been meaning to buy a wok for awhile and am very happy with this one. The initial seasoning of the surface took some time and sadly (but predictably) took away the beautiful shiny surface. I used it for the first time last weekend on a gas stove and it was great. Nothing stuck to the bottom or sides and the food cooked evenly and deliciously.
It seems very sturdy so I imagine I will be using for decades to come

Too Big.
The pan is beautiful and heavy, but it is entirely too big to be used on a conventional home stove top. But, it looks just like the picture.

This is a good wok but I have found it difficult to use on my stove. It is also a pain to store but is great for a stir fry. Heats quickly.

The wood handle cracked. Poor quality!
I bought the wok two weeks ago and finished the first time seasoning. Unfortunately I only used it for about three times in these two weeks and found the wood handle already cracked. There are two cracks on the handle shown in the pics and I'm afraid it would crack apart if I continue to use it. But the wok itself feels heavy and works well. Sad for the poor quality of the wood handle.
Cracks on the wood handle after using about three times
Cracks on other side of the wood handle after using about three times

Great WOK with minor defects
Wok is a great! Carbon steel is solid and seasoning the wok was fantastic. BUT...the long handle is not able to tighten flush and the small grab handle metal rivets are loose and fear it may come apart. Contact customer service and they recommended to return to a near by store. Only issue with that, they were the online store and there is not store near my area. So 2 stars it is.

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
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!
Does this wok contain any aluminium or any additional metals?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2018
What is diameter of top rim and bottom?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Top rim is 14 inches, The bottom (flat part only that contacts the heat surface) is 6 inches.
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.
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: I too had difficulty with the boiling water; its awkward to handle that much boiling water in a wide topped wok anyhow. I wound up scrubbing with plastic wool sponge hot water and soap multiple times, and that eventually got off all the coating without harming the finish (saw this done on youtube). Think the coating is some kind of machine oil?? I seasoned the wok until it completely changed color over my coleman stove and grill-outside (watch this on you tube also). Heat seasoning was too awkward on my flat top stove indoors. Love the wok now!
Is the handle removable?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Remove the handle by twisting the metal eye hook on the end of the handle to the left. Screw it back on by fitting the handle and screw in place and twisting to the left. The smaller handle is stationary.
What is the gauge/thickness of this wok?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This wok is made of heavy gauge carbon steel.
can you cook over induction heat?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes! Carbon steel works excellently on induction stovetops.
Is it spun construction where you can see lines around the inside? Spun is equivalent to hammered in terms of holding food to the sides.
A shopper on Dec 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The outside of the pan is definitely 'spun' both visually and by feel. The inside of the pan appears 'spun' but feels smooth.
Where are the first time cleaning instructions for seasoning? Mine didn't have any ! Thanks
A shopper on Jan 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The instructions were on the back of the label that came on the wok, but if you don't have them, they were basically fill the wok 2/3 with water and boil for 10 minutes then scrub with soap and water.
But I'm sure soap and water and elbow grease will work just fine. There are also seasoning videos for woks on youtube that could help you find a way that makes more sense to you.
Lost instructions. How do I get the protective coating off?
A shopper on Dec 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Fill at least 3/4 full with water and boil on the stovetop for 20-30 minutes. Then scrub the interior with a scouring pad (we used a rough sponge and Bar Keeper's Friend scouring powder). Then season with several coats of oil, heating each coat of oil and cooling completely between coats.
How do l season my wok?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There are initial instructions included on boiling water in the wok to remove any materials used in the manufacturing process. However, per google, seasoning a wok can be termed as follows: Image result for season a wok
Fold three layers of paper towels into a pad. Heat the wok as described above. Off the heat, swirl in 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and 1 tablespoon kosher salt. Scrub all over with the pad of paper towels until the gumminess and rust spots are gone.Repeat as needed. I noticed that if I wash my wok with soap, there is some rust if left to try, so cleaning gently with a non-toxic soap, and then applying the seasoning works best, It's much like a lodge pan. However, with my lodge pan, I only rinse, wipe out with a paper towel, then apply new seasoning. With that in mind, you must be careful not to use to much oil when storing, as oil has a tendency to settle if not left on a flat surface. The second option is to purchase a non-stick pan. I like ceramic lined pans, as they are easy to clean without the use of scrubbers. Best of luck. Will
What gauge is the thickness of the metal? 14g or 18g?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 14g
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.
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!
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:

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: Yes, this is induction compatible.
How to season wok?
Mzzdna on Jun 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Enter an answer to this questionhello!!

WHY SEASON A WOK:
Seasoning a wok introduces a layer of oil to the wok’s surface to prevent the metal from rusting, and also to prevent food from sticking to the wok. The more you use your wok, the more seasoned it becomes. The color of the wok will become very dark, and the seasoning (also known as “patina”) will eventually create a naturally non-stick surface. This patina will impart some subtle but awesome flavors (what we call wok hei – “the breath of the wok”) in each dish that you stir-fry.

You'll need:
A carbon steel or cast iron wok (either brand new, or due for re-seasoning)
Liquid dish soap
Scouring pad or stainless steel scrubber
3 tablespoons of cooking oil (must be high smoke point oil; I recommend peanut oil or grapeseed oil).
2-inch piece of ginger (thinly sliced)
1 1/2 cups chopped scallions or garlic chives (or a mixture of both; cut into approximately 1-inch pieces).
2 – 3 paper towels

Step 1:
Wash the wok thoroughly using a scouring pad or a stainless steel scrubber and a generous amount of dish soap.
All brand new cast iron and carbon steel woks have a layer of chemical or oils to prevent them from rusting before they are purchased. I recommend scrubbing the wok at least 2 – 3 times to get rid of any factory chemical or oil residue as you would not want any of that in your food!

Step 2:
After rinsing all the soap off the wok, let it drip dry for a few seconds, then place it on your stove over medium heat. This will dry the wok and prep it for its first seasoning! After just a few moments, the bottom of the wok will start to turn to a dark color with a blue-ish hue. Don’t be alarmed – this is totally normal! The more you use it, the darker the wok will become.

Step 3:
As soon as you see the wok start to smoke just a little, add about 2 tablespoons of cooking oil. You can use any oil with a high smoke point. I recommend peanut oil or grapeseed oil. Use your wok spatula to spread the oil around just the bottom part of the wok, then add sliced ginger (2-inch piece, sliced thinly), and about 1 1/2 cups of chopped scallions or garlic chives (or a combination of both).
The purpose of adding these ingredients is two-fold: Not only do they add a wonderful aroma and patina to the wok, they also help to spread the oil evenly over the (inside) surface of the wok.

Step 4:
Use your wok spatula to move the scallions or chives and ginger around the entire surface of the wok. You don’t have to stir too vigorously but somewhat continuously to prevent them from burning too quickly.

Step 5:
As soon as the vegetables have started to char just a little, remove them from the wok and discard.

Step 6:
Rinse the wok under running water. Use a wok brush, or stainless steel scrubber to remove the food residue from the wok. Do NOT use soap!!

Step 7:
Allow the wok to drip dry, then return it to the stove over medium heat. As soon as the wok is completely dry, turn off the heat.

Step 8:
When the wok has cooled a little, pour about a tablespoon of cooking oil into the wok, then gently and slowly spread the oil all over the inside surface of the wok using 2 – 3 folded paper towels. Please remember to do this very slowly and gently to prevent the hot oil from splashing and burning your fingers!

That’s it! You’ve seasoned your brand new wok! You’re ready to stir-fry! 🙂

MAINTAINING YOUR WOK:
Avoid cooking acidic foods (like tomatoes), poaching or steaming foods in your brand new wok until it is more seasoned. This will strip out the patina you worked so hard to develop! If you absolutely have to, you can re-season the wok using the above steps.

Do NOT use soap unless absolutely necessary (for example, if you cooked a spicy dish and want to remove the chili oil). This will also remove the seasoning very quickly.

After each use, simply repeat steps 6 through 8 to clean your wok. It does take a long time for the wok to develop a nice patina, even with regular use, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t see much change in your wok for a while. Over time and with regular use, your wok will be so seasoned that you will not need to do Step 8 (applying the coat of oil after the wok dries)!

I hope this guide has been helpful to you. Happy cooking and enjoy your new wok! Love my wok and use it every day, not just for stir fry’s !!!
Can you place this wok in the oven to season it?

Is the new wok artificially coated or coated with machine oil? thanks
A shopper on Mar 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe it was coated with machine oil. Regardless I seasoned the wok after I got it. But it didn’t make much difference, Food still stuck to it anything I cook. So I end up did not use it at all. I wish it was pre-seasoned
How to remove protective coating?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Honestly- I gave this as a gift, therefore I personally did not remove the coating. However, there where (what I thought) very thorough directions on the lable of the product discribing the steps to the procedure. The recipient didn’t indicate a problem with the process and loves the wok. Sorry, I’m not a lot of help.
I followed the directions and still was not able to remove the wax coating. So disappointed. Any tips please?
joy H on Feb 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi !From my own experience with this product, do this: rinse and dry your wok. When is dry, Coated it with oil inside and outside. Then take off the handle and cover the second handle with a rag and protect it with aluminum foil. Preheat your Oven 400 degrades and put your wok for 20 minutes upside down Take it out of the oven and cool it off. Reinstall the handle and unwrap the other handle. You can start cooking in your wok with some chopped onions and garlics or lemongrass to neutralize flavors. Discard this food because is only to start your wok.

KarKim T on Sep 10, 2015
