Lagostina Ticino Wok, 28 cm
I like the wok but it's a little bit too small for my preference.

This will replace all of your frying pans.
We have about a dozen frying pans in the house. We also have two of these "woks." Really, I wouldn't call them a wok, more of a mix of small wok and large frying pan. Whatever you want to call it though, they work very well.
The coating has been very durable compared to other teflon pans. We've had one for about six years, and the other for two or three years... both look brand new, despite the many camping trips they've been on as well as being used a few times a week at home.
When they're on sale, which they seem to be at least a couple times a year, they're a great buy at about $25-30.
The only complaint I could have about them is the lack of a lid. Even if it was bought separately it would be OK. However, I'm not sure if a large enough one is available.
I know we'll be buying another one as a dedicated camping pan. As for the rest of our old frying pans, they will likely end up in our next garage sale.

I love using this wok for all my cooking except deep frying. It takes a little while to heat up compared to iron wok. But after the wok is heat up, the wok is very useful and it done a good job. Hard for me to discribed it here but you will know once you are using it. I am planning to buy again when its on sale. I have 1 extra stock but wanted to keep more because I love this wok and it is a good wok.

This wok needs a lid
Since this wok doesn't heat up as fast nor distrbute heat to the side due to the shape of the pan, this needs a lid to trap the heat from the steam in order to cook everything properly.
