    Just a point to those new to woks thinking a stainless steel wok will be a good alternative to a carbon steel wok as it won't rust. They do stick alot, especially cooking protein. It is easier to cook food that you intend to add liquid in as it will help to lift the food that is stuck on the wok/pan. You can't season it like a carbon steel wok to create a non-stick surface, but the advantage is that you don't need to worry about drying it off after use to prevent rust. This Scanpan wok is pretty good as it does have a thick base. This should prevent warping due to heat normally associated with a thin base.

      Woks should be thin, they are supposed to pass the heat as much as possible - they are not saucepans that need a heavy base to retain the heat. + should not have a flat base at all.

      Fyi: You can season stainless steel.

    Make sure the wok is woking hot before adding ingredients, that will help with food sticking. And clean up is a breeze, after cooking, boil some water on high heat with dish soap in there and then wash normally.

      Similar to seasoning an iron cast.

    Wok looks pretty, but I'd still rather buy carbon steel.

    we have a carbon steel pan for frying and browning ingredients, then the plan is for those ingredients to be transferred to this stainless steel wok and stir fried with veggies or simmered in sauces (sometimes acidic)

    I've got the impact series of frying pans. Bases are super thick and retain heat well, almost too well. Super thin sides can burn food. They can be a pain to clean, even if you do the right things and make sure your food is near room temp, plenty of oil etc. If I had my time again I'd go a different set.

    I have got the steel wok and this wok,
    in my opinion yea the steel wok will be the one that will give you that "wok hay" not a "pan hay" as uncle roger mentioned.

    However this wok actually also not bad, especially if you have induction stove top. It still can give you the heat needed for stir fry etc, and the bonus is no rust issue.

    With the steel wok, everytime i finished cooking i have to wash it and seasoned it to prevent rust. With the scanpan wok, just easy wash.

    And as per other comment, the base is quite thick hence slightly longer time to heat for people who like to cook in high heat.

      Wash with water only, and boil it, then scrape with your utensil. Don't use soap, so you don't need to re-season it.

      You need carbon steel for proper wok cooking. Although steel wok can be heated too, with wok cooking you need to be able to alter the temperature between hot and cold quickly. With steel, the hot wok will not cool fast enough and burn your food, or dry the sauce pretty quick.

    Get a copper steel wok.

    •  

      Do you mean just copper? Or copper layer and steel?

  •  

    I like this scanpan range.

    Although I'm after an aluminium wok but can never seem to find a decent one.

    Cancelled and ended up buying with a Catch gift card.

    Good price for what it is, but you're going to need wrists like a gorilla if you want to wok toss with this.

    As with all stainless, sticking shouldn't be a problem if you get it hot enough.
