Inquiry:

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?

Outdoorstirfry:

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.

Inquiry:

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?

Outdoorstirfry:

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.

Inquiry:

Thank you for your answer, it gives me a better idea of what I need.  So I will make my order very soon.

Outdoorstirfry:

A PowerFlamer PF13L160 stove has been deposited with www.fedex.com.  It takes 2~3 business days to reach your XXXX address.  The tracking number is 7718 XXXX XXXX.  Attached in this email is the user installation guide.

Customer:

Awesome, I’ll let you know if I have any questions, thank you!

Customer:

I just got the PF13L160, I am the guy who wants to do the street market remember?

2 questions:

The pilot does not turns on, I am trying to star it but every time I turn on the burner, ones I finish the pilot does not keep the flame, what can I do.

I have a family member who bought the burner, and when he start it I can see the flame going very powerful, mine I can feel is very hot but I do not see any flame, just a very weak flame. Can you check the order under XXXX XXX, to XXXX city in California around 1 month ago? I want to make sure she ordered the same item that you recommend me in the last mail which you can see down this one.

Outdoorstirfry:

We check what XXXX bought.   It was a PF13L160 stove.  What you have is our latest stove.    As compared with our previous generation, one of the optimization is the power.   However when the stove is turned off, there is a “pop” sound, an indication of too high gas pressure from the main burner.   So when we ship, we minimize this by turning the air shutter in front of the burner pipe (right after the valve assembly) closest to the burner pipe.   If you adjust this air shutter toward the valve assembly away from the burner pipe, you can feel different power as the minimum.    Do you know when your other relative bought their stove?

In terms of pilot light, it can go out if you shut off the main burner quickly.   When you turn off the main burner, please slow down such that the main burner gas does not create too much abrupt wind effect to the pilot.

Hope this helps.   Let us know any further question.

Customer:

So just to resume I do not see a big flame, so since there is not big flame it is harder to flame the food on the wok. I will have to use some liquor in order to get flame. I have an 880000 BTU device, less power than you send me, but flame looks bigger. I do not saying you device does not work, I can feel a lot of heat, but since I am trying to do stir fry what I need is flame. Let me know what you think.

Customer:

(with Video) Hello, This is a burner that my family bought under XXX XXX a few years a go, so when he show me this video I saw the flame who looks I wouldn’t say big but there is a flame.

Customer:

(with Video) And this is the burner that I just received under XXX XXX, so when I start the burner I know there is a flame but I can barely see it. And the pilot does not turns on even when I try to star it when my hand fire thing or please tell me what’s the way to do it.

Outdoorstirfry:

You sent two emails with same video of our previous generation stove.    Do you mean to send a video for the new stove in your second email?   If yes please resend.

We tested every stove before ship.   Unless something is wrong, we believe the new one should achieve same flame as the old one if not better.   Let’s work together to figure this out.

Customer:

(with correct 2nd video) Sorry here is the other video.   A lot of heat but low flame, let me know please, thank you for answering I am against time for the event.

Outdoorstirfry:

Can you share your phone number?   I will call you to discuss.

Customer:

Sure 562 XXX XXXX I am free right now

(one day after conversation)

We experimented a bit on the pilot light not able to stay lit issue when main burner is turned off.   If we bend the pilot copper tube upward a bit at the valve assembly area such that the pilot flame is away from the main burner (see picture below), together with adjusting the pilot flame to be small and turn off the main burner flame slowly, we are able to maintain the pilot flame during 3 to 4 main burner turn off tries.  (Picture of the pilot light with respect to burner/wind guard).  Hope this helps.

(a couple weeks later)

How was your street experience with the stove last weekend?

Customer:

I had been practicing a lot with the burner, I am now using a 13 inch wok so flames better that the first one who was bigger so flame could not get  in to the wok, now I will say  I feel results are better, a lot of heat and good flame, everything was about technique.

So the street market will be on July and August, it is the 626 Night Market in Arcadia, have you heard about it? it will be my first experience and about the public visitors they are expecting 30 000  per day or more. I am hopping your burner can hold many orders through the night, the burner looks strong and easy to manipulate let me get very familiar with it and finish my recipe and I will send a second order.

I will keep you up date.  Thank you

Outdoorstirfry:

I search up the night market.   A lot of pictures on internet and a lot of happy people.   Hope your cooking adds to the happiness of the event.

I have been in southern CA a few times.   Weather in summer is incomparable anywhere else, so ideal for people to go out entertaining at night.
