To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Not pre-seasoned as advertised. Arrived with rust spots on handle and the bottom platform. It steams food rather than searing as a wok is designed. I have been using a carbon steel wok for decades that works better then this one. I was hopeful that this wok would distribute heat at a higher temp. Not the case. 1.Steams food (even in small quantities) 2.Not pre-seasoned as advertised. 3.Arrived with rust spots on handle and the bottom platform. 4.Difficult to clean. Waiting for our refund. Will update if/when we receive our refund. Update. Amazon refunded for the wok. Though the wok is not returnable. They suggested to donate it or throw away.
Great size, but it is on the very heavy side. You wouldn't be tossing this wok! I'm disappointed because the heat doesn't really make it all the way up the sides (we have an electric stove). Often times, it makes the food stick, but maybe it's because it doesn't heat up well or I'm not putting enough oil. Anyway, it don't really work for my situation.
The only Lodge pan I can’t stand. If you cook with proteins, they will stick. I own several Lodge pans and they are brilliant non-stick tools in my kitchen. This wok, which I was super excited to get, is useless if you are cooking anything other than vegetables. A waste of money for a wok. Buy a traditional black steel one instead.
I did not like it very much it is to heavy to use I have two other cast iron things that I use all the time which I have had for many years and one is a Dutch oven size and it is not this heavy I will be probably getting rid of it because of the really heavy weight.
