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

What is the difference between 5B burner and yours?


What is the difference between 5B burner and your PowerFlamer 160 stoves?   Check this out on Amazon – High Pressure Burner Propane Iron Wok Burner 5B Fast Stove 100,000 BTU


Comparing to this 5B burner on amazon, here are some advantages of our stoves:

1.  We have long leg option;

2.  We have configurable option for 1lb. propane bottle;

3.  We provide spider guard;

4.  We have stabilizers for long legs;

5.  Our hose has stainless braid;

6.  Our paint lasts much longer before rust starts;

7.  this Amazon stove product may only provide two main power setting.  And the seller may not be able to tell you as they are wholesaler, not technical at all;

8.  We are designer and builder of our own stove, we know inside out and have our own patents.   We support our products from a sky high expert point of view.

List can be longer, but let’s stop at above 8 points. 


I like the electrical burner, but I’m worried the electrical switch will eventually wear out. However, Im assuming the manual burner will not, since less parts.  If electrical switch does wear out, will it easily convert to manual burner?

Also, does manual burner have the spider guard? 

Also, I heard people complain about the hose not fitting securely on some wok burners.  Does your model have clamps to remedy this issue?

Thanks for listening to me.


When the electric igniter fails, you can use a long nose BBQ igniter to ignite the main burner directly.   You are operating it as a manual stove without a pilot flame.

The manual stove has its spider guard.

Our PowerFlamer 160/120 stoves do not use clamp.   Our hose connection is patent pending.   The hose connection to the stove should be tight and meet local code.


One last question, have you done any new remodeling on the manual stove other than spider guard?  I’m leaning towards purchasing this one because I’m a cheapskate and don’t mind using long nose lighter ?  Thanks!


Here is the list of improvement on our manual PowerFlamer stove:

  1. Spider guard;
  2. Much long lasting paint;
  3. Top burner plate secured;
  4. Hose clamp removed;
  5. Stainless braided hose;
  6. ACME type 1 QCC tank connector;
  7. Long-Leg-able;
  8. Configurable to 1lb. propane bottle;
  9. Continuous flame adjustability.
