Best wok ever!
This wok is made of carbon steel and needs to be seasoned, but that is easy. It has a great nonstick surface from the first use and is large enough to toss the food around. It has a large enough flat bottom to sit on the stove without any tipping. This wok is really fun to use!

Clearing up confusion: It's Iron. Dimensions follow too.
Would like to help with confusion around dimensions and material. It's clearly Iron. Not like the heavy Cast Iron found in America. More like the thin iron you see in high-end Japanese woks. Very elegant, light and unbelievably easy to season. Wok without lid weighs 3.77 lbs. See photos for more details. It's a beauty. Helper handle looks a bit large, but that size serves a purpose: it doesn't heat up. Remember to season the back of your wok too!
Iron Wok
Diameter of wok
Height of wok
All materials that arrived with wok describe it as "Iron".  It's like the iron on  Japanese woks.

Great Wok!
This is a great wok. It is easy to lift due to the lighter weight & the assist handle. The carbon steel cleans up really well, much easier than my much heavier carbon steel skillet. Can;t explain it but it works really well.

Super wok!
I stuck with the same thin wok for 30 years because it was a gift from my grandmother. It is being passed down to my son and this TERRIFIC wok is no my go-to for larger fry ups...definitely not just for stir fry. Heavy, yet easy to handle and cleans up quickly. Follow the seasoning directions!!!

Appears to be good quality. Know Kuhn Rikon and Christopher Kimball are top performers.
Patricia S on Dec 2, 2018
This is a gift for my daughter who loves broccoli beef. The description sounds more like an authentic Chinese wok like I received as a wedding gift, but with an easier surface to maintain.

I am hoping this is a good stainless steel authentic Chinese wok. I have not had a good one since buying one in London China Town and am having a hard time replacing it.

I want to replace my old non-stick wok because the surface is starting to show wear and I've read that carbon steel cookware is quite durable. This wok appeared to be a good a value, I look forward to using it.

I was looking for a Wok for some time. The price was the best I have seen.I do have a lot of Kuhn Rikon products which are of great quality.
Parvaiz N on May 10, 2018
I believe Kimball that the standard stove cannot handle a traditional wok. Only flat bottom or a flat non-stick will work. I trust that reasoning.

ROGERS M on Dec 8, 2018
What is the surfac made of? Is it Non-Stick?
Khaled Z on Mar 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This Wok is made out of Carbon Steel.
Will this work on an induction cooktop?
Dav H on Mar 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is induction compatible.
Everything on this website says this wok is made of carbon steel. I received mine a couple of days ago and the information on the box, as well as the literature inside the box, says it is made of iron. I know that iron is the main ingredient in steel, but obviously iron and carbon steel are not the same thing. Can someone explain this?
Paul L on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a carbon steel skillet, however, since a main element is iron, the literature designates it as such. Viewing the product image, you can see the obvious difference between a cast iron skillet and a carbon steel skillet.
Is the wok oven-safe?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this is not intended for use in the oven.
Can it be used on an electric stove?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. While I use it on a gas burner, there is no reason you can't use it on an electric burner. The bottom area of the pan is flat, the sides are much like a wok; it should heat up nicely on most heat sources. Excellent for searing meat, by the way!
How lengthy is the seasoning process?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Basically none . . . I put little oil on it the first time I used it. Then, afterwards, wiped it clean with a paper towel, filmed a little more oil (canola) on it, heated it again, let it cool, then one final wipe with a paper towel.

This is my routine maintenance for all of my cast iron and carbon steel implements. If there is sticky residue, I generally use a Lodge™ plastic scraper to remove it and then repeat the routine maintenance. This pan has proved to require less work than most of my other carbon steel skillets. Great for stir frying.
What is the diameter of the flat bottom?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's 7 inches, so it can fit on even a smaller eye or burner. It works great on an induction cooktop. Also cleans up amazingly if you've seasoned it.
Is there any non-stick coat?
Yuhang L on Aug 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this is a carbon steel pan. It needs to be seasoned, like any carbon steel or cast iron cookware.
what is the weight of this wok?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Despite the carbon steel construction, this wok is fairly light weighing only 3.5 lbs without the lid. The assist handle makes it easier to lift and empty, plus it cleans easily. It’s good.
Is this Wok safe for glass top stoves?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have a glass top induction stove and it works beautifully. I seasoned it prior to using per instructions and nothing sticks. Wonderful pan.
What is its steel gage or thickness?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just measured it at the edge, about 1 mm. However, it seems thicker on the bottom, flat area, perhaps twice as thick. Whole wok feels very sturdy and well made. So far, it has handled my stir fry and meat searing very well.
