Wish it worked better. I love the concept of a wok and stir frying. Just add a drizzle of olive olive and satay your vegetables and you are set. Bam. Easy and healthy meals that don't consume a lot of time. However, the problem that I had was that the item did not appear to be powered correctly. It would work on and off for about 5 minutes. Very hard to achieve the temperatures needed to impart the desired asian flavors into my dishes. Aside from that, the metal is thinner than expected. It can be dented from falls, so just be careful from that and take extreme care of the device. It's a bit expensive for the money. Heats up very quickly though and the food doesn't skin, which is what the wok should do. I returned this product versus having to get a replacement power cord, as the later would require some money in addition to the cost that I paid. I think a traditional wok on a glass top stove would be the superior choice here.
