Vollrath 77754 Customer Reviews
Product Code: 175-77754
The semi flat bottom allows me to use it on both, my wok burner, and regular stove top. The try ply makes it even heating like my aluminum wok. Doesn't burn food like my plain stainless wok.
My wife likes to "cook for an army," so I got her this pan to replace a Calphalon 14" nonstick flat-bottom stir fry. Under heavy use, the nonstick on the Calphalon just disappeared. The Vollrath pan has no nonstick which I see as a plus since metal utensils can be used with impunity. Another plus is that the Vollrath pan has more than twice the useable volume of the Calphalon piece. The price I paid for the two pans is about the same, but I consider the Vollrath a better value because of its even heating 3 ply metal and its robust construction. The Vollrath pan is meant for continuous use in a busy commercial kitchen. I imagine you could pound nails with it, use it as a pry bar, and drop it out of a helicopter with no ill effects. It's a big pan that's not overly heavy, but a small helper handle opposite the main handle would have been helpful. That's the only con; we expect to keep this pan in our home kitchen forever.
