Had a Joyce wok before....hated it. My son is a chef and advised me to visit any commercial chef restaurant supply store and pick up a mandarin wok and ring. The bottom will be round so the ring is non negotiable. Lots of YouTube posts to season a real wok. Mine is as slick as glass After seasoning it. Forget the gimmicks and tchotchkes that comes with the Joyce wok...they are a distraction. Your mileage may vary.
Joyce makes carbon steel woks and they're fine. Mine still sticks a little bit but I'm new to seasoning so I'm sure it's my inexperience. Definitely wouldn't get this nonstick wok.
The carbon steel Joyce Chen is fine. I have an electric stove in my apartment, so I need a flat bottom to get enough heat into the pan. My round bottom doesn't get hot enough to cook anything even with the wok ring.
