      Before I received this wok as a gift, I had been using the same titanium model my dad got me when I moved out. The old one is wonderfully seasoned, lightweight, and big enough to hold enough food to feed my growing family. I've tried using numerous other woks and pans over the past 16 years, but nothing had been as versatile and long lasting as that one pan. I could cook pretty much anything in my old wok-- stir fry, fried rice, soups, stews, spaghetti sauce, noodles, etc. The only problem was-- I don't use much cooking oil (trying to be healthy) and therefore my husband gets to scrub off all the burned on bits of food. So, when I got the Unison Nonstick Sear, I had a few tests for it. As soon as I washed and conditioned the wok as recommended in the manual, I made the kids' favorite meal-- fried rice... using only the tablespoon of vegetable oil I wiped on the surface. Usually, my husband has to scrub my old wok to get all the hard, sticky bits of rice and egg off after I make fried rice, but this time, clean up was a breeze. The second meal I made involved boiling dry chinese noodles, a procedure that usually deposits a sticky, hard-to-scrub-off ring at the water line that has to be removed before heating the wok on high heat to cook the rest of the ingredients and finish the dish. Again, no problem getting the wok clean (husband is happy). The last dish I made was a beef stir fry that usually results in burned on patches of marinade and bits of beef on my old wok. The marinade is super sticky because it's made with soy sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic, and corn starch, but this too cleaned off easily. I was able to get the slices of flank steak to caramelize but not stick to the surface of the wok, again with very little vegetable oil. I was really impressed with the "sear" technology that allows for browning in this nonstick pan. This wok is noticeably heavier than my old one, but it definitely holds heat better. Two small complaints I have are that the glass cover is quite heavy and the nonstick surface of the wok is very easily scratched. I have hidden it from well-meaning visitors who have scratched my nonstick pans in the past and have used only bamboo spatulas and chopsticks for cooking, but there are already small scratches in the finish. We'll see how it holds up!

      I have to admit I was a bit nonplussed when I was sent a Calphalon wok. In my single days, I bought a smaller Calphalon anodized aluminum wok years ago and it currently collects dust. It was impractically small and so unbalanced I couldn't center it on a burner. The new one has a nice heft so food doesn't scorch and is well balanced. I like that it has one long slightly curved handle and a loop handle opposite. I love having a glass lid so that I don't have to open the pan to peek and the lid's handle stays reasonably cool. However...the negatives: I get a bit anxious really cranking the heat on nonstick coatings and my two Calphalon nonstick skillets have scratched after less than a year of admittedly heavy use. Another downside of the anodized aluminum is the difficulty in getting Pam (or the like) off and now the company no longer recommends the use of Dormond, even for the exterior.

      I finally found a pan large and deep enough for all my sauté needs! My husband is a big eater and I can satisfy his appetite and not have my food falling out of the pan and onto my stovetop. Cleans up nicely and has become my go to pan!

      I bought this five years ago. I use it all the time. The nonstick still works as good as ever. I have bought several Calphalon products. They have all been great.

      My Favorite Wok

      Comments about Calphalon Unison 13" Covered Flat-Bottom Wok:

      I have several woks but this is my favorite. It's the perfect size for making healthy vegetarian stir fries. The cover is a good weight and enables energy savings by turning off the heat and keeping the dish covered to finish cooking. Cleaning is so easy too!

      I got this as a wedding gift. It is awesome! I can now make the best homemade fried rice! It is great for crisp veggies too! It prevents your veggies from absorbing too much oil.

      Great for everything!

      Comments about Calphalon Unison 13" Covered Flat-Bottom Wok:

      I've had this pan since the unison line first came out. It was the first pan I bought from the set and ended up buying the entire set after using this pan. You can do everything in this pan!! I've made everything from frozen bag meals to fresh cuts of meat in this wok. Although it has a small bottom, the pan heats up evenly so it's great even when the pan is full!

      For being a single guy trying to cook healthy...nothing can beat this.  Seriously, you can cook some amazing stir fry chicken and veggies with this.  Add some brown rice and it is the easiest thing you will ever do, and the tastiest!
