..::Product Review::.. Ozeri 12" Green Earth Wok

My Review of the Ozeri 12" Green Earth Wok

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"The Green Earth Wok's ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA. In addition to being eco-friendly and ultra-safe, the Green Earth Wok's ceramic coating is far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Wok by Ozeri allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and it makes cleaning a breeze. The Green Earth Wok by Ozeri is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without the risk of hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant Bakelight handle."


I was sent the 12" Green Earth Wok from Ozeri to review.  

The price for this pedometer is $32.99, and it ships free with Amazon Prime.


 You can find this wok at many other retailers that offer site to store shipping for free.  For example:  Walmart, Wayfair, Home Depot, Newegg, etc.

Packaging & Presentation of 
the Ozeri 12" Green Earth Wok
This wok arrived in absolute pristine condition.  The box part (not including the handle) measures 12.5" x 12.25" x 4.0", so it ships in a pretty large box.  The box is white heavy-duty cardboard with green and black accents.  The wok's handle is sticking out of the box, and the entire thing is wrapped in plastic wrap and secured with a rubber band.

The front of the box labels the product and brand.  It lets you know what size wok you are getting, and it also features a see-through window so you can check out the texture of the inside of the wok.

The back of the box provides a few important details about the wok.  It also explains how the wok works.  There is also a window on this side so you can see the outside of the wok.

Out of the four sides of the box, two of them have information on them.  The right side features the same information as the front of the box.  The left side provides a detailed description about this wok.

Each locking tab has a safety seal on it, so be sure to remove or cut these before opening.

When I took off the box, the entire wokis wrapped in plastic.  

After unwrapping it, I found a green felt wok protector and a set of instructions (for seasoning, washing, and storage).

My Personal Experience with the Ozeri 12" Green Earth Wok

I enjoy cooking, and a good wok can make all of the difference.  I choose to use coated pans because stainless just doesn't work for me. I owned a wok years ago, and I absolutely loved it.  I used it all of the time. That one had to retire, and since then I haven't owned another.  I was really eager to try this, as I've missed having one around the house.  I don't just stir fry, I use it for everything. 

Before anything, let's check out both sides of this 12" wok.  The inside is extremely smooth.

The bottom has a stainless bottom that is induction stove safe.  If you peek at the side, you will see that it is an amazing lime green color.  The company name 'Ozeri' is displayed in the middle.

The handle is very lightweight, and it has a place where you can hang it up if you wish.

Instructions.  Yes.  Please read them.  Ozeri wants you to read them, because this User's Guide is printed in 10 different languages.  It explains how to season your new wok, how to care for it, and how to store it.  Best of all, it gives usage information.

I wanted to cook something with it, so I seasoned it with some peanut oil.  I recommend seasoning your pans at least once per year.  I season mine about twice.  For this wok, I used 1 teaspoon of oil since it is 12".  I wiped out the excess oil with a paper towel, and it was ready for use.

I decided to make spaghetti tonight, so it was a perfect opportunity to use the wok for the Smart Ground.

None of it stuck, which is amazing because it usually does.  It cooked evenly, fast, and I had absolutely no issues.

Pros of the Ozeri 12" Green Earth Wok
  • Made without harmful materials (like heavy metals and chemicals).
  • Totally non-stick.  
  • Has ability to hang from a pot rack.
  • Eco-friendly!  The coating doesn't emit any harmful fumes.
  • Really, it's easy to clean.  You can put it in the dishwasher if you want to.
  • Induction stove safe!
Cons of the Ozeri 12" Green Earth Wok
  • I have not found any cons of this wok.

        I explained above that I had a good 'ol wok.  But this one is way better.  The quality is outstanding.  It's super durable, it's lightweight, and it's fancy-looking.  I love the way it cooks, everything heats evenly, and there are no hot/cold spots.  I give this my highest recommendation.
