    Wanted one pan to do it all. For just me it’s waaaay to big. I should of looked at the measurements more. If you don’t have an enormous single bowl sink this thing will be a real pain to clean I do have that but if you don’t I don’t know how it’s going to fit in your sink. It does what it says it will but it’s long sorta flat skinny handle makes it twist in my pot holder gripping hand while I walk towards the counter. The handles WILL GET HOT they are metal so I need to get another silicone glove. My last walk was decades ago and it was lightweight aluminum coated with wooden handle and it didn’t take up the entirety of the top of my stove. It came with a little collar thing you sat it on to cook. I don’t think the product is bad I just think I made a bad decision for me in this particular item. Merely posting it so that if there are others who have bad hands bad grip and are counting on a two-handed or the short handle carry it can be very awkward depending on the layout of your kitchen.

    For less than the cost of dinner for four at KFC you can own this souper fry pan… Yes I spelled it souper so you don’t forget this is great for soups too.

    Yep, I am tossing out my Turbo Cook Pan, but keeping the steel steamer tray and maybe using the stainless steel lid… Jury is out on the lid as I now have three to choose from: Stainless Steel, Traditional WOK, and Glass. I love my Turbo Cook Pan; Nothing cooks better in a short period of time; however the main pan is non-stick aluminum and does not last. I don’t need to add aluminum or non-stick to my family’s diet.

    It is great that this is a flat bottomed stainless steel pan. My prior review, which I lost, had a story about sticking stainless steel pans. I went into the importance of manufacturers instructions as with my other pans I finally figured learned why my food was sticking and better ways to clean up after cooking from reading the instructions. Cuisinart’s use and care guide covers has some interesting things to say regarding cooking with and cleaning this pan that you may want to review before using. (**I feel that many of the less than five star reviews may have been different if people had read the use and care guide first before using this pan.) Lastly, since this pan is to replace a non-stick pan I decided to put it to the test by frying tofu last night for making my hot curried tofu. There was some sticking, but as I was frying at a lower temperature when I cooked my veggies after the tofu all of the stuck food was released by the steam of the vegetables.

    Many people’s complaints about the glass lid are actually a feature of the lid. This pan was not designed for the traditional ultra high temperature WOK cooking. The glass lid will actually vapor seal to keep in veggie freshness. There is a right way to break the seal is in the use and care guide. So far I have not used the glass lid, but I intend to when I put this WOK to the task for making hot and sour soup.

    I thought I had a great price when I purchased this pan a week ago from Amazon for $34.95 with super saver shipping included. At the time of this review you can get the same pan for $28.24 a full $6.71 less. If you are concerned about the glass lid as I was you could get this pan now and pick up a WOK lid at a thrift shop for a few bucks and still come out ahead.

    FYI: AMAZON’s Post-Order Price Match Policy
    With the exception of TVs, we do not offer post-order price matching when an item’s price drops after you buy it. Our prices regularly change, and the price you paid when your order shipped was the lowest price we were able to offer at the time. We consistently offer competitive prices on everything we carry because we know low prices are very important to our customers.

    Read them all the good and the bad as you want to make an informed decision. Also, this is not a traditional high temperature wok, but if you are looking for one of those Amazon has one that looks good currently for $20.79 and $7.84. You also will have to get a WOK ring as this is round bottom, plus don’t think about it if you have a gas glass cook top as the heat will break your cook top. (Yes I am sure someone will say I’m wrong on this, but that is what my SEARS instructions said when I installed mine ten years ago… Glass could be tougher now)

    UPDATE: 7/16/11 I’ve used this pan for several dinners and large soups and it has performed remarkably on my gas cooktop. So far I have used this glass top only as a dust cover for when I’m not using the pan. I have been using both my old WOK top and Stainless Steel Turbo Cooker Dome top… The reason for this is: 1. they work great with this pan and 2. I’ve read in several reviews about shattered tops, even though I suspect improper use, I want to be sure I’ll be in the kitchen 100% of the time for my first couple glass top runs.
    CLEAN UP: After each use I fill the pan with water and let it soak while eating my meal. After that a green scrub pad makes short work of any food or stain on the inside of the pan.


    note: I have read reviews that state this is not an induction pan, if you require an induction pan you may decide to look elsewhere. There was no claim in the write-up of this pan being an induction pan. (I understand the use of a one star review when talking about a product that you are trying to help keep others from making the same mistake they did, knowing that it isn’t the manufacturers fault; for this reason Amazon needs a neutral star rating.)

    Update 6 September 2011: Since getting this pan I have used it five times a week. My glass top has been GREAT and no problems. Again HIGHLY recommend following instructions. Cleans like a dream. Makes more SOUP than than my Turbo-Cook pan ever did, and now I don’t have to worry about eating non-stick material. When frying it is easier to use a WOK ALUMINUM lid as it is lighter and you don’t have to worry about the glass lid.

    Update 20 May 2014: Burned my wok again walking away and forgetting that I had it on the stove for coffee water. I can not count the number of times that I have burned this great pot, but it is still flat as an ironing board on the bottom. Oh should you ever burn your wok too, just gently move it to an unlit burner and leave it alone until it cools before attempting to clean it.

    Update 1/17/2018: Yep burned again. Still flat as can be on the bottom. Great Pan. By the way I forgot to mention another appliance you don’t need after getting this wok… Your Crock Pot is no longer needed. I just put this on the stove with low heat for any crock pot recipe and will shorten the cooking time by half. (Rough times as you still have to be sure meat cooks.) And just like a crock the more times you lift the lid the more loss of cooking energy. Great pot for split pea soup. I toss a pound or two of dried split peas in the pot. Wash and drain a few times in the wok as to not dirty other pans. Then add water, onions, garlic, and my leftover ham bone from dinner. Put that on low heat and cook for several hours before tasting. After that spice to taste. YUM

    this was an excellent choice over the cheaper brands. 1/4 thick bottom and stainless pan. Cleans up great and use it on a new glass top stove. Yes, I’ll be buying another when the time comes.

    Further Update: 3/19/2019 — updating to 5 stars.

    It is now my goto and favorite wok. I used it daily. I hardly ever use my Calphalon 13 inch SS wok or my Calphalon 12 inch hard-anodized wok anymore–every time I reach for one of the others, I change my mind and revert to this Cuisinart.

    This wok is big and light, and once gotten used to how it cooks, unbeatable. There certainly is something to be said about size–big is good. And weight–the Calphalons when loaded with food are hard to handle due to their weight. This Cuisinart is easy to maneuver full, or empty for cleaning.

    It is also easy to clean; just pre-soak in soapy water, dump and remove residue, and then use Bar Keeper’s Friend (BKF) with soft, non-scratch, side of sponge. I tend to wash it once with BKF and then again with dish soap. I always clean it to spotless like new condition. I do not use super high cooking heat on range–on my gas range, I have settings of High-6-5-4-3-2-1; the highest I ever use is the 5 setting for stir frying=a high medium heat.

    I am careful with the glass cover so I don’t crack it by hitting on something since it is a bit unwieldy.

    Overall, this is a great wok. I almost returned it when I first got it, and am so glad I didn’t.

    Further Update: 2/17/2018

    Amazon did couple of exchanges for me. One arrived with the disk on the bottom dented, and the other with the handles not aligned. Poor quality control and bad shipping.

    However, this pan is becoming my go to stir fry pan, and so I am upgrading to 5 stars from 4. It is light and that makes a difference when there is a lot of food–it is about one pound lighter than the Calphalon and that makes a big difference when tilting it with one hand to unload the food. And it is big–there’s something to be said about size–when I stir-fry a few lbs. of green leafy veggies at one time, this pan is big enough to take it all–just heap it on. The Calphalons, at 12 and 13 inches, although only 2 and 1 inch smaller in top diameter, are more cone-shaped and have smaller bottoms and thus do not hold as much–what I had previously said was a liability for the Cuisinart and a plus for the Calphalon is now the opposite.

    I have gotten used to and adapted to the required stir-frying style with this pan–parking the food in the middle rather than the sides–the opposite of the Calphalons.

    All in all, have gotten more pleased with this and selecting it over the two Calphalons most of the time, in daily use. (Note: I stir-fry a lot of green leafy Chinese vegetables.)

    I asked others if their wok scratched as easily, since my has acquired many scratch marks and I was using a Calphalon nylon spoon to stir-fry. Many indicated that theirs did not scratch easily. Mine also makes a crackling sound as it first heats up. I called Cuisinart and asked if what I experienced was normal, the rep said no, and for me to mail it in and they would give me a new one–however, I have to pay for shipping. If I did a return to Amazon I do not need to pay for shipping. So I am undecided. I do like the pan, but it has its favorable and unfavorable features.


    It is big but lightweight; many say it is heavy but I think it is light for its size. I weighed it without the cover, it is 2 lbs. and 13 oz.. In comparison, a 13 inch Calphalon Stainless Contemporary is 3 lbs. 9 oz., and a 12 inch Calphalon Hard Anodized is 3 lbs. 5 oz. So relatively speaking this Cuisinart 14 is light.

    Because it is so big, the likelihood of spill out on stir-frying is less, and so is the splatter.


    Because it has the disk on bottom but the sides are not encapsulated, the sides of the pan get hotter than the bottom, making it opposite from a typical stir-fry pan, where the bottom is hotter than the sides, and one can park food on the sides. I am not used to this yet, and my stir-frying comes out uneven.

    The flat bottom is too big, and the food does not naturally slide down.


    As mentioned, I have a Calphalon 12 inch Hard Anodized that I use for serious stir-frying, and I was looking for something bigger in SS for daily use that would generate low splatter. I subsequently bought a 13 inch Calphalon Contemporary SS. I like the Calphalon 13 inch 3-ply SS, it stir-fries like the 12 inch Hard Anodized, with a small flat area allowing the food to slide naturally. The only other 14 inch SS out there is the All-Clad, a 5 ply, which is probably real heavy in addition to expensive, although likely a good wok.

    I am keeping the Calphalon 13 inch SS, but on thinking about returning this Cuisinart, I am a bit reluctant–it does have its merits–namely the size and lightness. It is not a bad wok even if it stir-fries differently. It is cheap, and worth keeping around–if storage space is not an issue.


    I have an Innovation 11 inch deep skillet that I was using as a daily stir-fry pan, and a 12 inch Calphalon Hard Anodized for serious stir-frying. Having moved from an electric stove to a gas stove, the hotter flame and heat of gas caused a lot of splattering with the 11 inch Innovation, requiring much post-cooking cleanup. Thus I looked for a bigger stir-fry pan, of at least 14 inches and in stainless steel for daily use, since I already have the 12 inch Calphalon (which is superb).

    I was skeptical about the 7-inch diameter sized flat bottom–too big a flat area–the Calphalon is only about 4 inches @ 12 inch, thus more slopping. The comments about the glass cover exploding was bothersome, and the cheap price was puzzling–cheap is cheap and one gets what one pays for. Some reviewers mentioned that it was light while others said it was heavy. An All-clad 14 inch is like $300–and it is super heavy. At this price, it is worth a try.

    When I received it, I was amazed at how light weight it was. My All-clad 8 inch is almost the same weight. The light weight was concerning at first, seemingly indicating it was deficient in materials. Upon using it, I appreciated the light weight because it would be unmanageable with a full load of food otherwise. However, the pan scratches easily even though I have only used Calphalon nylon utensils–don’t know why.

    I have been stir-frying for years and stir-frying with this pan is really different–not like with my two other pans–I have not figured it out yet–is it due to the use of lower heat (not high), or the larger diameter of the flat bottom, or the slope of the sides, or the heat distribution. I don’t feel like I am really stir-frying, more like boiling the food and it takes longer to cook. The Calphalon stir-frys much easier and naturally. I don’t know about this pan and have not come to a conclusion about the pan.

    The quality and base thickness is great. These are comparable to some of the high end ones at 1/4 of the cost. Great large size for cooking pasta, rice or stew. The built in simple strainer locking mechanism is commendable.
    P.s I have only used them on a gas range.
