Looking for a wok for uni, used a tefal (or whatever its called) one last year and it was great but i lost it (dont ask haha). Not sure whether to get this one?

Ive had one for months and they have always been this price so not really a hot deal, If you turn the heat up too high everything welds to them the nonstick is pretty rubbish but the price is at least a 1/3 of what a wok of this size usually sells for so its not the end of the world.

If your using it now and again then its fine but if you plan on stir fry food every week do yourself a favour and buy a decent one, it will cost a lot more but be a much easier thing to live with and clean.

It isn't good quality, you find that the non-stick comes away after a few uses. It's worth spending a extra on one that will last you a long time.

It's not fantastic quality - I used one last year for uni and, as others have said, the non-stick coating sort of stops working after a few goes.

That said, if it lasts a tenth as long as a £20 Tefal one I'm not any worse off - which is exactly why I bought another one the last time I went to IKEA. Particularly as it'll only end up getting scratched or something anyway...

I use these wok's and as long as you rub them over with a bit of olive oil after each use the non stick seems to be ok.

The non-stick "tends to go" because people use all sorts of metal instruments in them. metal and non-stick DO NOT GO TOGETHER.

Use this wok with a wooden food turner and the non-stick coating should be preserved. Plus soak and wash with a sponge, NOT a scourer.

I use it for everything! its so useful :)

Ours didn't last too long before the non stick became stuck.
I got a Ken Hom(spelling?) one in the Jan sales and that's been much better by comparison.

I'm not into nonstick or aluminium cookware because I think it will eventually kill you.

Doesn't everything?

This is the worst wok I have ever used. The non-stick began to fail upon the first use and has got progressively worse ever since. And no, I haven't been using metal utensils. A false economy.

I only ever used the bluntest of blunt plastic utensils on mine, treated it to a soak in fairy liquid and a sponge down after every use and it still did it. It's not a case of it getting scratched or peeling away, it's just that after a while you find things like noodles (and somehow even bean sprouts) end up just plain sticking to the bottom of the thing - even on not particularly high heats.

Having said that, it's not the end of the world and it only started doing so after probably 15-20 stir frys, so £2.40 for a year's stir frying is alright by me.

I've had one of these before from Ikea, a good find
#14
Been this price for ages. Can't belive no one has posted it until now. Still decent through.

Waste of money. Get a proper steel wok from a Chinese supermarket (£5 approx) and season it with vegetable oil. These cheap non stick woks will not withstand smoking hot temperatures which are essential for cooking raw vegetables. Try frying rice in smoking hot sesame oil on one of these. The cleaning is not worth the money saved. They just don't cut it.

Agree with scratch1964 , I purchased this wok a while back and the non stick starts coming away for sure.

Purchased a couple of woks from an Asian supermarket and both are going strong as long as you season and store completely dry or with a slight coat of oil to prevent rust. Have a wonderful choice if sizes also.

If not anyone near a TK Maxx they always tend to have a good few woks available.

I bought a cheap wok from tescos and the non-stick pealed off after a few goes and I took it back, it was also thin metal and flexed too much

Bought a cheap wok from Ikea, with a glass lid, and it's still going strong after well over a year, so I would happily buy kitchenware from Ikea again.
