I searched long for a wok that would a) sit in a non-wobbly fashion on my ceramic top stove, b) would heat up quickly and evenly even with the crappy electric stove range heat, c) would have a wide enough surface area to stir-fry evenly and d) would have the depth of a sauce pan to make soups and sauces as well. This Cook's Standard Wok exceeds my expectation. I have been cooking in it for the past couple weeks and whatever I have cooked has turned out perfectly. The wok heats evenly and very quickly and stir-frying is a breeze. I have also made a couple soups in it and it is far superior to any saucepan or stock pan in the market. I would highly recommend this pan to any cook who is looking for a sturdy, high quality, and yet, convenient to handle, well-made wok/saucepan/stockpot. Overall, this wok is a thing of beauty to look at. It actually looks like a gleaming stainless steel giant version of Aladdin's magic lamp. Love it. Would buy it again and would recommend it to everyone who is even remotely fond of cooking and wants to sharpen and improve the taste of what they cook.

This is very heavy-duty, very beautiful and just the right size for use as a wok, but I also love it for noodle dishes and paella. The depth and high lid make it work really well for those. The flat bottom is also helpful
The pan heats quickly, do keep it on a lower heat than you're used to, and it retains the heat, so it cooks nice and evenly. I love the fact that I can pop it in the oven to bake a casserole after I've sauteed the ingredients - this is a very useful all around pan!

I'm building my pots and pans collection one at a time and this was a great addition! You really don't need any of those big sets...just choose the ones you will use and buy a good one of each...this was my good wok...

The wok looks good and feels good! It is very heavy. The food cooks well on medium or lower. If you set the stove to high, then the food (specially rice) gets stuck to the wok. If you are looking for a non-stick wok, then this is not the one. It is all stainless steel.
I have used this wok shaped pan for soup to curries as well as stir fry. At first glance it looks too big to cook for 2 people but the flat cooking surface and the high sides make it such a pleasure to cook anything. It takes up some space but is beautiful enough to leave on the stove. I have ordered another for my sister.
It did not take long before my order arrived. No damages noted outside the box. Loved the weight and the feel of this pan, and gladly replaced my previous wok. I have used it for deep-frying, as well as stir-frying. The price was great considering I am satisfied withe the product at this point.
I've replaced my old cooking pans with the Cooks Standard series, this was the last pan I needed. Both me and my wife are fanatical home chefs and cook all the time so this collection is perfect for heavy usage and ease to clean later. Best way to clean them is to use Barkeeper's powder or liquid, takes care of all stains and keeps the cookware spotless clean.
