Product Details

This 8" Stainless Steel Wok (SLWK008) is brought to you by Thunder Group. It is a commercial-grade durable wok, and features rounded handles. Woks are primarily used for stir frying, but can also be used in many other ways, such as in steaming, deep frying, braising, stewing, or making soup. This bowl-shaped pan has several advantages - it spreads heat evenly, uses less oil for deep-frying than a traditional deep-fat fryer, and ensures that sautéed food tossed during cooking stays in the pan and does not end up on the stovetop. A good wok is indispensible when cooking traditional Chinese food, and can put to great use in most commercial kitchens.

Customer Reviews

8" Stainless Steel Wok is rated 3.125 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from It never crossed my mind that the wok would be manufactured with a bump right in the center (like a spinning top), underneath (its cook surface!). The person that I bought it for, as a gift, cannot use it because it cannot make contact with their flat cooktop - it wobbles around. Can only be used on a gas cooktop. Otherwise, the workmanship is good and it is a lovely, shiny little pan. They can't use it at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live alone so this little wok is the perfect size for me. It is great for all dishes from meats to soups and excellent for making rice dishes and stir fries for one or two people. They fit very well on my gas stove without a ring but the handles get extremely hot. It would be nice to have a wooden handle that you can handle to take the wok off the stove. Other than the handles, I would highly recommend the small wok for anyone living alone or a couple. I LOVE IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I adore this mini wok! I like it because I can stir fry and deep fry in smaller quantities. It saves me from always hauling out the big steel one. The gauge is thick enough to be quite sturdy. I also like that the loop handles are welded fast to the outside--no chance of rivets or screws loosening. It heats evenly, has a shiny surface inside and out. The price is a steal for the quality. I also use this wok as a double-boiler insert over a 3 qt. saucepan.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It is not a practical cooking tool. The size is too small for sauteeing, and doesn't sit on my stove properly. I may have to buy a wok ring to go underneath it. The steel used in manufacturing is of a poor quality too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really appreciate the way you handle problems - thanks to Jenyfer with Customer Service who assisted me. I just love cooking and I spend my free time whenever I want to eat my favorite food. I grew up in the kitchen. I was in the kitchen when I was a kid whenever my Mom prepared our food. Thank You!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to use this for regular deep frying, but cleaning was the hard part. The first time I used it was for a short period of time for tempering, but the sides got the oil stains and I had to scrub it real hard to get it out. I have not used it after the first time cleaning effort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This wok was not exactly what I expected. It was much smaller than what I anticipated, I guess I didn't read specifications correctly. But the quality of the wok that I did receive was very good. I do plan to purchase more products from your company very soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What not to use it for The wok is small. It makes a great catch all. I find no fault with the wok other than it's size. I am sure there are jobs that the small size would be perfect for. The small size and fine finish look good on a sideboard.

Customer Questions

One reviewer says this wok has a rounded bottom and needs a wok ring to work on an electric stove. The picture looks like it has a flat bottom. Which is it? If it is a rounded bottom, is there a wok ring available?

Asked by: SRWheeler
The Thunder Group (SLWK008) - 8" Stainless Steel Wok is a round bottom wok and is not recommended for an electric stove. If you have a gas stove, you could use Thunder Group (ALSR001) - 8 1/4" Stainless Steel Wok Rack.
