        Premium one:
        Oyster Extract (40%) (Oysters, Water, Salt), Sugar, Water, Flavour Enhancer (621), Salt, Modified Corn Starch (1442), Wheat Flour, Colour (150a). Contains Oysters, Wheat.

        Thr non premium one I find is much sweeter

      • label says it all

    • Wondering if the premium one is ever on special?

      • +1

        According to Camel the premium is usually priced at $11.90 on Amazon AU

    I don't know anyone who uses the panda version. Grew up with the original premium one.

      Probably someone who don't know ;P

      Most takeaway stores do as it comes in drums like this.

      • Witnessed this at a Chinese takeaway last week, saw the huge drum come out

          Cleaver to poke a hole too ;)

  • Yup, just got this today. Initially got the Ayam one as their whole range of sauces was on sale for $2.50 but then saw this one on the bottom shelf

    This is a step up from their oyster flavoured sauce, which I believe doesn't even state the oyster extract content. Save up your pennies and get the premium version. Your taste buds will thank you.

    • is it 6.25$?

        I'll check next time I'm at my Asian grocer.

      • $6.99 at my local

        • that so exxy

          • @ilove: I think I can afford the extra 74c ;-)

      The three levels are: Panda oyster flavoured sauce (3%), Panda oyster sauce (11%) and premium oyster sauce (40%).

      Personally, this one (i.e. Panda oyster sauce) is what I grew up with. The premium one is of course nice if you feel like spending a bit extra, but the Panda brand certainly isn't bad by any means.

  • Thanks for this. I've bought both in the past actually quite confused why there's so many Lee Kum Kee oyster sauce versions and not knowing which is which - I'm so white haha.

    But good to know the Premium is the one to go for, will look out for it next time!!

    Just found two more from Lee Kum Kee in addition to Premium and Panda - no wonder it's confusing:

    • Just look at the labels. The level of actual oyster extracts should be explicitly stated.

      • So higher oyster extract is better?

        I'm guessing Lee brand is better than Ayam?

        • +1

          Yes to the first Q. As to the second I have not tried Ayam so can't offer any opinion either way.

        • Oyster sauce was invented by the founder of Lee Kum Kee

          • @iChopstick: Oyster saurce from the old days was a lot better than today Oyster saurce.

    • The price is also a good indicator!

      The first link that you posted is a stir fry sauce, so kind of like an all in one. The second one isn't that different to the Panda oyster sauce, i.e. a lower grade. I think that there are better brands of oyster sauces out there (LKK is just the most ubiquitous), but at the end of the day, if after trying all the options out there, your taste buds tell you that it's ok, then it's fine, isn't it?

  • not to be confused with:

    Lee Kee Panda Kum brand

    …theres a difference
