Questions: Do you have any guidelines on choosing the 9″ versus the 13″ versions of your stoves? Does it depend on the size of the wok? I’m considering the PF13L130 and the PF9L130. As far as I can tell they have the same power output and are comparable in height. So what is a 13″ version more appropriate for?
Answer: There is a web page on how to select our stoves at http://outdoorstirfry.com/?page_id=247. For the ring diameter, here is the info from the page:
Stove ring diameter. Another factor to consider is the stove ring diameter, which is the diameter of the cylindrical wind guard. If your cooking utensil (wok, grill, or frying pan) is small, you can consider our 9” products; otherwise, choose a 13”. If you usually cook for 2~4 people, 9″ stove is sufficient. If you need to accommodate more people regularly, 13″ stove is better.
The web page also has other factors such as fuel source, weight, typical usage etc.
