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.
It's a decent 10" piece of kit to add to your collection. The size is best suited for a small individual meal or a supporting dish, and it does the job for shallow deep frying or a sukiyaki for two. The cast itself is quite rough, but seasons well, and winds up being deceptively non-stick despite its appearance.
The price is a little high, so value would be the only opportunity.
If you're new to cast iron cookware:
Take some time to learn how to season and maintain it. Unseasoned / bare cast iron will rust if you even look at it sideways. Do NOT discard it if it rusts. It isn't defective. It's simply not seasoned or seasoned properly. There are hundreds of videos on YouTube on cast iron seasoning / polymerization. Cast iron does require some initial work and ongoing attention to maintain, but it's a labor of love, because nothing comes close (except maybe carbon steel). Good luck!
Bought this 10" cuisinart wok to replace my mini lodge 9"wok. this one quickly became my favourite cookware to cook indian dry sabji for 4(or 5) people. To season- I usually deep fry in it for initial days to build up the seasoning. Only issue is its cooking surface is not as smooth as the lodge. A must buy kadai!
At first, I thought it's really small but it's actually perfect for family of four! This wok keeps me to cook just enough and not to have so much left overs. I have used it a few times already and so far, I'm loving it! Delivery was quick too. Quality is great and hopefully to last forever!
Ordered the pan. Really wish they would not combine reviews for multiple products when it’s not what the listing is. It gives false positive reviews and you have to sift through to find your item! I ordered 2 and both defective. Large areas of unevenness inside the wok pan. I ordered a 3rd one and hoping for better quality. I have yet to use because of lack of quality control. I am not talking about rough texture here.
This is a great buy. I didn't need it, I just wanted it. My wife gets sideways with me about my cast iron because I have so much of it...but who cares. I like guns, fishing poles and cast iron. 😂🤣😂🤣 It's a very nice piece, quite unique and totally worth the money. As far as it's usefulness, well I haven't really found alot of uses for it but I like it.
I've made cornbread and a few other things in it. But truthfully I just bought it because I liked it. I'm sure at some point I will have an actual use for it, but right now it's holding fruit on my dining table and it's awesome at that! 🤣😂🤣😂 It's more along the lines of a 2-3 person wok. But the best part is when I'm dead and gone it will still be here and my 2 boys will be stuck wondering WTF they are gonna do with a ton of cast iron. 😂🤣😂🤣
