Customer questions about this product
- What is the difference between a Mandarin wok and a Cantonese wok?
- The difference is in the style of the handle. Mandarin woks feature a long stick handle, while Cantonese woks have two small loop handles, giving cooks a choice of whichever best fits their style.
- What's the difference between a riveted and a welded handle?
- A riveted handle is connected by small metal pieces (called rivets) that are crushed between the handle and the pan body to attach them together. This type of handle is more common on copper and aluminum cookware.
For a handle to be welded, the metal must first be melted and then adhered to the pan body. This creates a strong bond that leaves little to no space in between, so bacteria and other food crumbs can’t collect and cause sanitation issues. Both are long lasting solutions for fry and sauce pan handles because they are durable and can withstand heat.
- My item arrived coated with a thin layer of oil. What is this oil for, and is it ready for immediate use?
- Some carbon steel pans and woks are shipped with a protective oil coating from the factory to prevent them from rusting before their first use. They must be thoroughly washed with warm soapy water to remove all traces of the oil, and then properly seasoned before use.
Toss together stir-fry, ethnic cuisine, stews, and more with this Town 34702 14" Mandarin steel wok with wood handle.

People Talk About:wok Great handle price nice easy bottom clean Season stir
I don't like to review items until I've used them for awhile. Well, it's been almost 2 years and I still love this Wok! Once it's broken in, it develops a nice nonstick finish. The Wok heats up really fast, and cleanup is easy with a chain mail scrubber. I thought the handle would be an issue, but I only tightened the handle screws once, hasn't come loose since.

A great priced 14" mandarin wok that is great for quick stir fry. We have a few of these are great for cooking orders as they come into the kitchen.
Jonathan P. Posted on 09/03/2017
I really like this wok! It's the perfect size for my family and it really cooks well. You have to season it regularly but it was super easy and for the price, it's worth it.
Karrie Posted on 06/08/2017
I got 2 to try them out first at my food business. I like the size and weight. These pas are needed special care and burn them before first use as natural non stick pans.
Kasama R. from Imsabai Posted on 05/22/2017
After the initial seasoning the wok was great for use, we have made several dishes including fried rice successfully with this item. I would recommend.
Jennifer I. Posted on 05/15/2017
It takes some time to season this pan well, and it requires upkeep to prevent rusting. It's large enough to make a couple dishes at once and not as heavy.
Anthony N. Posted on 03/08/2017
I absolutely love this wok. Its heats up fast , big and easy to clean. Also it comes in very handy for easy and fast nutritious meals
Tiara P. Posted on 02/04/2017
so far the pan has held up well. seasoning was super simple. the one downside i've found is that the handle isnt mounted on super well. it kind of wiggles a bit. i don't think it will break but its a little annoying
Mark N. Posted on 01/29/2017
I've always had a wok at home, they are great for making fast, nutritious stir fries, and noodles This hand hammered wok has a long handle, which keeps you away from the heat as you cook. It is durably made, and the hammered finish makes it easy for cooked veggies to be pulled out of the bowl to cling along the side as you thicken a quick sauce in the bottom, or add another ingredient. This wok is also a good buy and excellent price!
Russell H. from Russ' Sub Shack Posted on 11/10/2016
Very nice and big wok. It heats up fast and cleans well. The handle is very nice too. It is low maintenance and worth buying.
Brenda M. Posted on 09/13/2016
Very basic wok, did the job though.Webstaurant shipped in a timely fashion. Had an issue with order, customer service handled it professionally on the spot. Products were great value for money. Would definitely buy from them again.

Can't say enough good things about this wooden handle 14 inch Mandrin Wok it's carbon steel and after seasoning it works great when making all my Asian dishes
Mark W. Posted on 07/13/2016
With the proper amount of seasoning, this wok works like a charm and doesn't stick. Nothing quite like a nice hearty stir fry prepared in it.
Matt S. Posted on 06/15/2016
We have ordered these in the past and this is our first review...Great! The Town 34702 14" Mandarin Carbon Steel Wok with Wood Handle is perfect for cooking on a wok.
Herman H. from In-stock supply inc Posted on 05/05/2016
Love the wok but everything sticks to it. Furthermore it rusts as soon as it touches water. Such a pain to clean too. Would buy non-stick wok's next time.
Danielle P. from PEACOCKS PANTRY, LLC Posted on 05/03/2016
Thanks for the review, Danielle! We're sorry you've had problems with things sticking to your pan. This wok must be seasoned regularly to maintain it's usability. For more information, check out How To Season and Clean a Wok.

Nothing better for the price: and your time spent burning the protective oil coating off & seasoning, you get a real wok. Initial clean & season it this way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGXGJD2xTzQ
Christopher P. from The Paulin Slate & Copper Co. Posted on 03/29/2016
I really like this wok. It's quite large, so I can cook a lot at once. I haven't had a problem with food getting stuck to it. It's susceptible to rust, so dry it immediately after washing.
Victoria C. Posted on 03/01/2016
Great wok for the price, not to heavy, but when loaded up it can be fatiguing of the forearm after an hour of use. Gauge of steel is sufficient to allow rapid heating and cooling and easy temp control. Only ding is the wood handle is screwed in and the metal mount is riveted on. While its held up well so far, the handle will eventually fail. But given the price its a fair tradeoff.
Charles S. Posted on 02/19/2016
This wok is high quality and arrived packaged very well with no damage. It is clearly hand hammered and has the texture necessary for proper stir frying.
Corin S. Posted on 09/28/2015
The size is very suitable for our family which we wanted .but i think it need to combined with a wok ring as it has a round bottom.i think i will go to buy that one . I like it !
Yongchao J. Posted on 09/02/2015
A great starter wok. Not the best construction, but it does the job. Take the time to season it properly and you'll have no issues. It definitely gets better with age. A nice size for home use, especially if you have a gas stove. I prefer the rounded bottom to the flat bottom woks, but you'll definitely need a wok ring (item #88534710) if you don't have a dedicated wok burner. Not great for electric stoves.
Gordon L. Posted on 04/18/2015
This is a great wok for families or smaller restaurant portions. I would say it cooks between 2 and 4 servings comfortably. Decent build, if a little thin. Nothing to complain about for the price.
Michael P. from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on 04/07/2015
We use this Carbon Steel Wok for many Asian dishes, and additionally purchased more for gifts to friends we like it so much. I highly recommend combining this with a wok ring as it has a round bottom. Very nice, much better than using an imitation flat bottom wok.
Brandon M. Posted on 12/12/2014
Great "beginner" wok! Works well on an apartment stove, heats up quickly and evenly. After a few uses the natural nonstick film is beginning to form. I look forward to when the wok is fully seasoned and black.
Noah G. Posted on 12/08/2014
I've checked around for a better price, and even figuring in shipping, this is still the best buy. This 14" mandarin w/ wood handle is work good for small restaurant business!!!
Chatuphorn S. Posted on 06/30/2014
The Town 14" Mandarin wok with the wooden handle is a nice clean pan and seems to be quality made. The wooden handle will keep a lot of the heat from your hand.
Thomas B. Posted on 12/05/2013
I love using woks when I cook. The rounded sides makes it great when sautéing up a stir fry. The metal is very durable and easy to clean.
Aaron H. Posted on 12/15/2012
I absolutely love this wok! The website's picture doesn't do it justice, so I've added one for you. I've "seasoned" it and have used it twice (you can see in the photo that it's starting to darken already). Every kitchen should have one and The WEBstaurant Store has it for an unbeatable price!
Gina V. Posted on 06/27/2012
these are great. heat up quickly and produce a nice sear on meats and vegatables. they are easy to clean with minimum scrubbing. remember to dry them after washing.
Chris V. from NoNoo Ramen Bar LLC Posted on 02/22/2012
awesome product for a great price. You cannot find a good wok andywhere else for such a great price. I would order again and again
Lisa M. from Zeppe's Pizzeria Posted on 01/25/2012
Excellent wok for the home cook. Great for small batches of stir fry dishes. Season it and give it a little care, will last for a long time. Great price!
Eric K. Posted on 05/26/2011
I have used one of these woks in my home for years. The 14" size will adequately cook for 4 - 5 people. You have to season this wok since is is carbon steel. I coated it with a thin layer of lard and heated it on the grill outside at 400 for about 30 min. and it had a nice black patina. you can't go wrong with this item.
