I'm looking for a portable wok stove, I'll probably buy online. I think I would like a wok stove instead of a turkey frier. Unless you could convince me other wise.

I'm also looking to eventually buy a portable butane canister stove. Any reccomendations? They all pretty much look the same.

matthew

who accidently burned a good amount of seasoning off his wok....it's ok though. I'm such a freak I spent two hours or more getting it back.

I thought I turned the burner on low to dry it out....turned it on high.

Butane canister stoves are relatively cheap. Canadian Tire has them for like $30. I'm picking some up eventually, instead of my electric stove.

BTW, Brukky, CTC has no US locations that I know.

Are these propane/butane things useable indoors?

Questions, questions, always questions.

Nick,

You can pick these up in a lot of places. A lot of people use them indoors. I don't know that they're certified for that use.

Think of them as a gas hot plate.

I've used the camping rigs, but some of those in Brukky's link look good for emergency household use as well. The $50 one, that I checked the detail on is UL certified.

Nikoz, I realized that Canadian Tire probably wouldn't be in the States, but I figure that there is some sort of Franchise along those lines. Just your basic Walmart, but with stuff for the garage,


Yes, you can use these indoors. I've used them for doing service in a dinning room, for special events all the time. They don't put off enough heat to really cause any problems, especially if you're in a fairly large area. If possible use them as close as possible to a window. No problems should happen, as long as you're careful.

There's also induction burners. Basically the same a stone with electric elements, but 'better' - or so I've been told. Something I've been thinking about for myself just because I'm in a basement apartment with no ventilation in the kitchen.

This is the best outdoor burner I have ever owned. These have been for sale in Gonzales, LA for years. I have 3 of them. I use them for all my tailgaiting and large jambalaya/gumbo cookouts. It has a piezo electric starter, just like on a Viking range. A propane bottle and a low pressure regulator, and you are in business.

That's it? There's no structure to it?

The thing with indoor versus outdoor rated burners isn't necessarily whether they will be safe to use indoors but rather if you are using a non-indoor rated burner indoors, and something happens (i.e. your house burns down) then the insurance company will not pay because you were not using a properly rated piece of equipment. That's the biggest thing to look for when using something like that indoors.

If your primary interest is wok cooking, the Eastman "Big Kahuna", from Amazon for about $55 is xlnt. Propane, so outdoors only. 16"-18" wok is ideal.
