Are you kidding me? Don't buy the stuff if you're not going to keep it.
That's how promotions like this never get offered again, on top of returning food that you never intended to keep anyway.

They only accepted 3 out of the 8 bags I bought.. and yes, I bought eligible products. They didn't give any reason.

I think I'll buy some more, but I'll do that "buy and return" trick for the 5 remaining products.

and im not ashamed.

As long as you have a gas-top stove, it should be fine. If you're using an electric or induction stove... Haiyaa!

Cold deal for gas stove owners, the non-stick coating will melt off. Might be okay if you have an induction or electric stove?

PFOA coatings can only withstand up to about 300C, and your gas stove is guaranteed to burn hotter than that. People recommend cooking on medium/low with gas stoves for coated woks, but then what's the point of using the wok at all?

I've been trying to buy the Natural select Spanish style for 6 months now. Out of stock everywhere. Anybody know where I can buy it? Thanks.

They got plenty Saturday evening, both on the shelves and in some bin nearby, so most likely they still have them.

He'll put leg down from chair. Uncle Ben recommends not washing rice, he should not be called uncle.

You cannot base reviews from Amazon, since my link doesn't mean it's the exact model.

Mine is still good as new, but I'm not using it on a gas stove, so maybe that's why.

Just donate or keep it. Food gets thrown out when returned. We RFDers are cheap, sure, but don't be that cheap and wasteful.

My Uncle Roger would approve of the wok but not of this Uncle Ben. Probably disown Uncle Ben from the family for using this rice.
