Do I have to light it all over again each time for manual PowerFlamer propane 160 stove?

Inquiry

Hello, I am interested in purchasing a Powerflamer 160. I wanted to ask about the manual vs. electronic ignition first. If I purchase the manual ignition, will the pilot light stay on if I turn off the heat (e.g., between dishes), or do I have to light it all over again each time? Thank you.

For manual stove, the pilot flame can stay lit for you to turn off the main burner between dishes.   You don’t have to re-light it every time.

Buying for PowerFlamer propane 160

Inquiry

It said on the website to contact for international shipping. I will be able to checkout with a canadian address directly on the website ? Also, If I add it to my cart at 7h30am, will it be reserved in the cart for the time I checkout or I could enter my information to later realize its not available when I proceed to the payment ? 

Outdoorstirfry

Yes international buyer can just buy from our web site.  Each shopping cart is given 2 minutes to check out.   After 2 minutes the product will be released for others.   The problem is within these two minutes our website software does not remove in stock indicator as it has not received any payment.  This allows so many others to click into their carts and results in empty hand later.

I click the product into my cart but get empty at the end. What happen?

Inquiry: 

Hello:  Twice I have had the Wok burner with tall stand and keg supports in my cart but by the time I get through the PayPal checkout process the items are out of stock. How does that happen? Once the items are in my cart why do they then become out of stock? Isn’t there a better way to handle this process?

Outdoorstirfry: 

There are more people clicking into their carts than available quantity daily.  Our web site will only remove stock and disable ordering after people pay successfully to the quantity available.  The web site software is configured to allow 2 minutes of time for this check out process.  This extra 2 minutes of time allow more people to click into their carts and results in empty at the end.   Please try again.   We have customers reporting that they have to do this continuously 3~4 weeks in order to get one successfully.

pilot light remains lit?

Inquiry

Does the powerflamer 160 with the manual ignition still have a separate pilot light that remains lit? Trying to decide if I need electronic ignition since I’m perfectly happy to light initially with a lighter.

The PowerFlamer propane 160 manual one has a pilot that can remain lit when the main burner is off.

Why does your website not having address or a contact phone number?

Inquiry:

Why does your website not having address or a contact phone number?  Makes someone uneasy about ordering from the site.  We had ordered this item through Amazon and it never came. Had to cancel order.   Where do you get these from ?    It says 58 available.   What is the shipping and handling to South Carolina Thank you.

Outdoorstirfry:

We purposely don’t put address and phone number on our web site because of so many spams around.   The only way to contact us is through our contact us form.

We used to sell on Amazon.  November last year (11/2020) we ran out of stock.  Amazon encourages other sellers, like hfgxus, to sell on our product link (the so-called Amazon catalog).   You must have bought from this seller instead of from us (outdoorstirfry).   Because of this Amazon practice, we had a big dispute with Amazon and so far are extremely discouraged to start with Amazon again.   We had other customer experiencing the same thing as yours through Amazon.   You are not alone, tricked by Amazon’s tactics.   Fortunately you get your money back.

We get stove parts from Asia and here locally USA.  We custom build to each order here in USA.  This is why our lead time is long, 30 days from order to ship.   Shipping to SC is $38 for a box of about 25lbs, size 24x14x10.

Outdoor Kitchen material

Inquiry:

Hello,  I have a client that wants to install the PowerFlamer 160 into their outdoor kitchen, and want to put it in their counter and connect it to their natural gas line. So, my two questions are:

  • Is this product able to be mounted into a counter with additional heat shielding? The cabinets will be wood, but we can add sheet metal. I don’t think it looks smart or possible, but I told the clients I would ask. To me, it seems to make sense to make a non-combustible counter and just set it on the countertop.
  • Can this model be attached to a natural gas line, or can it only be used with a tank or bottle? It looks like only a tank or bottle but, once again, I just want to be sure.

Thank you.

Outdoorstirfry:

  1. We would recommend no combustion material 1 foot around the stove.   For outdoor kitchen, our customer usually build with stone or stainless material.
  2. WE do sell PowerFlamer 160 natural gas stoves as well at http://outdoorstirfry.com/products/natural-gas-stoves/1-burner-natural-gas-stoves/.  Our PowerFlamer 160 propane stoves are at http://outdoorstirfry.com/product/powerflamer-propane-160/.

Converting PowerFlamer 160 long leg version to short

Inquiry:

Hi, For the PowerFlamer 160, if I buy the long leg version, is it the same as the short leg version with added legs?

I would most likely use the long legs for a bit, then when I move set it up on a cart, would that work?

Outdoorstirfry:

Yes the long leg version = short leg version + 3 long legs.   You can detach the long legs easily and use the short leg version only.    You could also just buy the short leg version and do it on a cart.
