1. The flame of the stove is indeed very powerful, but too much centered to the middle of the wok. With other wok burners the flame is more scattered over the wok.
2. The wok that came with the wok burner has short handles, as a result of this sometimes you lose the hairs on your hands/arms. I bought a wok with a long handle, this solved the problem.
|Our Answer (if any):||1. When the stove power is increased by turning the red cap regulator to more ON, you should observe that the flame increases to cover more wok bottom area until it reaches out all area defined by the wind guard (9” diameter). Most wok burners out there use low pressure gas. Their flame is not as powerful to reach other area other than where it points at. This is why they have to build a lot of holes covering a lot of area, which results in low efficiency.
2. The wind guard is designed such that proper handling will not hurt your bare hand.
