Hello, I would like to get the Continuous to 160kBTU/Hr. 32 lbs because I am going to use it for commercial purpose in a street food market. Do you think this device can handle 200 – 300 preparation a day for 3 days in a row? and whats the difference with this one Continuous to 160kBTU/Hr. 31 lbs, besides the price?
For manual ignition, the 160kBTU/Hr, 31lbs is PF13L160 while the 160kBTU/Hr, 32lbs is PF13CL160. Both products are at this page http://outdoorstirfry.com/?page_id=1180. PF13CL160 comes with an adapter for 1lb propane bottle which you don’t need. PF13CL160 is for people who want to carry light for camping etc. You will want a PF13L160. PF13L160 is our sturdiest stove and should be able to handle your 300 per day 3 days cooking. In fact we have restaurant chain buying our PF13L160 for catering purpose which is similar to your application.
Hi again, this is my second mail, what if the Continuous to 160kBTU/Hr. 31 lbs stays on for many hours, like 5 or 6 hours, we will turn it off but just for a few seconds or maybe 1 or 2 minutes and then keep cooking since we are going to use it in a food market, WE DO NOT WANT TO BE WITH OUT THE EQUIPMENT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SALE.DO YOU THINK IT WILL RESIST??? If one order takes about 55 seconds to cook, how many orders can we make with a small tank as show in your videos?
PF13L160 comes with a pilot flame. You can turn off the main burner between cooking while keeping the flame to save gas. In our home cooking, each tank lasts about 3~4 months with 1~2 dishes per day. Let’s take the average number of meals we cook for each tank is 3.5 (months) x 30 (days) x 1.5 (meals) = 157.5 meals. For your 3 days 300 meals per day cooking, look like you will need 6~8 tanks in worst case estimation.
