Fed up and disappointed!”
by Miss Farrah
I searched for a long time to find a nice, small wok and then it was bought for me as a birthday gift. I was extremely happy the first couple of times I used it but the the coating started to come off! I took it back and was given a replacement but the same thing has happened again and quite frankly, I do not want another one so it'll go in the bin! This item is not up to Lakeland's usual standards and I am fed up and disappointed!

I bought this pan thinking it would be ideal for scrambled egg for one adult (or two children!) but the non-stick is not and recent use on an induction hob proved it to be useless. The base bowed ever so slightly so it lost contact and refused to heat up and the supposed non-stick coating is coming of despite careful cleaning.

I love the size of the little wok especially as I am trying to diet and it allows me to control my portion size but I am very disappointed with the quality. The non stick coating is coming off and the pan is going rusty

Saw this in January and thought 'At last! A non-stick wok for one!' ...... and it certainly is a perfect size for cooking a single portion, however, it is not non-stick. After just two uses it had developed a bald patch on the base & food stuck to it. After persevering and losing more of the coating and burning more food, my patience snapped. Now it's in the bin!

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry you've experienced this problem and hope the replacement we've sent serves you better. Please note: As the coating is non-stick metal utensils should not be used, the heat needs to be the highest it can be but extreme heat,especially with no contents in the pan may damage the coating.I hope this information helps.
I ve now had 2 little woks and the same problem has occured with both. I wanted it as it is a perfect size and can be used on induction hobs but find that the food sticks. Also the non stick has come off in little spots and gone rusty. It has also come off around the rim in parts. Still love the idea of it but disappointed with the quality. Everything from Lakeland is usually first class.

A note from the team: Thanks for your feedback. Our buyer has advised that the little wok doesn't need to be cooked over extreme temperatures the way uncoated woks do, and it could damage the non-stick coating if done. We've passed your feedback to our supplier. Thanks for your time.
fab size , disappointing performance”
by Mrs Waldock
I am a long established fan of Lakeland and have purchased many items. Was thrilled to find this little wok as the size was absolutely perfect. However I was truly disappointed with the performance. Food stuck readily to the base and the non stick surface has peeled off. I am no longer able to use it as I was finding non stick black bits in my noodles. I've not been put off from shopping in Lakeland as this is the first of many products that I have ever had a problem with. My score is divided as the size of the wok is fantastic but the performance let it down.

Little 'sticky' Wok”
by Mrs Irvine
Bought the Little Wok as I thought its size would be ideal. Very disappointed with it. Everything sticks and is hard to get clean. I would not recommend this to anyone. The idea is good but the product isn't.

Could have been a great product!”
I agree with all the other comments, great size for one person stir-fries but the pan is unstable and the non-stick coating is not non-stick and has started to come off and rust. It is difficult to get clean after use. Very disappointing!

Excellent for the money”
by Ewan Patrick
I've been using my Little Wok for a few years now and have to agree that it is a little wobbly on my gas hob - but it is a wok and has the correct shape for stirfrying rather than a flat bottom like a standard pan. I've also noticed the non-stick coating is wearing off: I've never understood non-stick woks when all the best professional use ones are plain carbon steel and just need seasoning to avoid the need for Teflon. Maybe a plain carbon steel version with a stand might be good? All in all I love it!

This is just a fantastic little wok. I use it on my stove and its perfect for small amounts of stirfry veg etc. Excellent. Thankyou Lakeland

I've only used mine a couple of times and the non-stick surface has come away and the bottom of the pan has gone rusty. I've got cheaper pans that have lasted a lot longer.

A wonderful wok”
This is far more than a wok for one. I use it every day not just for stir frying but also for scrambling eggs, heating through beans and general light frying. We have a range and an induction hob and it's great on both. Even my husband uses it and he can't cook - or says he can't!

I bought this for my student son.Both he and his flat mate tell me that it's excellent for stir fries,but brilliant for scrambled eggs! Easy to clean, their favourite pan.

I like the wok, it's perfect for small amounts but you really do have to watch it as it' very unstable on the gas hob. The weight balance isn't quite right. If it was steadier I would probably buy a couple more.

The Little Wok”
by Mrs Deighton
I find the Little Wok excellent for small amounts of stir-frying. No problem with food sticking. The only complaint would be its instability on the gas ring - it tips over very easily so it's essential to hold the handle throughout the cooking process, especially when heating the oil prior to adding the food.

First of all: This little wok is very useful for one person. But it wobbles, because the handle is too heavy. Besides that, food sticks even though using wok oil. Elly Stroo the Netherlands

The Little Wok”
by Rosemary Morrison
I am so delighted with this pan. I use a wok a lot for all sorts of cooking and find this size is excellent for small quantities. I have an induction hob and finding useful pans is not always easy.It is also essential to regulate the heat as it is easy to burn foods with this heat source.

disappointing food sticks all the time”
by Mrs DUNDON
I bought this a few months ago from my local store and have used it a few times and every time the food sticks and it is wobbly on the gas ring. Not impressed at all. One star for nice size for one but not a good product. Not sure if this one was tested at Lakeland but certainly doesn't match up to their normal standard.
