Various questions on PowerFlamer integrated propane 160 stove.


I am considering the purchase of your PowerFlamer Integrated Electronic Ignition (IEI) Propane 160 Wok.

My current Wok is a TAYLOR & NG 14″ Flat Bottom, Single Handle Wok. Is this Wok compatible with your PowerFlamer Propane 160 IE?

I like the idea of the optional stove stand. When using the stove stand are the short legs detached?

As I improve my Wok cooking skills, I would like to use the “Wok-Toss technique”.

I am I better off with or without the stove stand when Wok-Tossing?

Do the wheels offer any limitations to the cooking process?

Do the “non flame blocking wok adapter” keep the flame from coming out and burning you hand and or wok handle as noted Kenji Lopez’s review of your PowerFlamer 160 EI?
Or is it the integrated to top burner plate?

What is the spider guard?


Since your Taylor & Ng wok has a non-stick surface, it can be burnt off by the high power flame.   This is not advisable if you prefer non-stick wok surface

The stand only accommodates short leg stoves.

Both options of stand and long leg with stabilizers are suitable for wok tossing. 

The stans wheels can be locked.

The “non flame blocking wok adapter” on Kenji’s stove has been integrated into the wind guard of the stove.

Spider guard is to fence off spider building nest inside the stove pipe blocking gas flow.


Thanks for your prompt support.  One more question.  What wok is the best match for your burner?


Plain carbon steel or cast-iron wok, size 14~16”, is optimal.  The link of a carbon steel wok we carry is at
