Use it as my goto frypan now, and use very little oil, with no stickage.

Avoid this like the plague, we had ours as a gift... Lasted a very short time (maybe 2-3 weeks) before everything stuck to it and became unusable. I was sure to follow the instructions it came with to maintain the non-stick and it still happened. Didn't return it as no gift receipt.

Walmart one is regular starfit. Canadian Tire version is Heritage, which has a longer-lasting, more durable coating. You can feel the difference if you hold the two works in person. Always go with Heritage for Rock. Starfit Rock is only slightly better than regular t-fal.

Its a good pan we had a whole set including a wok and after about a year its time for garbage.
Heat never higher then a 5 /medium and gentle with them some are still god but the wok and 1 pan hit the garbage at 1 year. So not bad but if you want something to last and that makes great sirfrys this is not it

Can you please tell me the name and address of the grocery store where you got the carbon steel wok. Thanks.

Technically speaking one would do FAR better with something like a carbon steel pan over a wok.
A wok only makes sense if you have 100k BTU flame behind it. The very bottom gets stupidly hot while the sides get less hot.
If you have a flat cooktop or a residential gas range, a flat surface is going to make far more sense.

A non stick wok however, makes zero sense at all.

I did a bit of searching as I found most of the woks, even the carbon steel woks, had a non-stick coating, which I definitely didn't want. I finally found one at T & T Market in Surrey...and they have stores scattered around the mainland. I paid about $20 without a lid.
I bought the Asian style large metal stir fry "scoop/spoon" at Walmart for $5, which I find really useful for stir frying etc.
I use very little oil with the wok, less and less as I develop that patina for "non-stickiness".
I also loaded up with woksoflife suggested spices/sauces as I decided due to "covid isolation" pursue learning to cook better Chinese food at home, as the restaurants here in South Surrey are lousy.

Are stainless steel (clad) ones any better?
I definitely don’t need one, so I’ll do the right thing and pick one up on my way home. 😎

**Just pick one and don't loot** 😠
