Wok Question About Buying/Using Indoor Butane Portable Stove

el bandito | Aug 28, 2011 04:46 PM

I have an electric stove and want more heat for my wok. I am not interested in buying a new gas stove or an electric wok. (I accept that others love their electric wok, but they are not for me.)

I've been doing a lot of research on using a butane portable stove for my 14' carbon steel wok. I would like any insights on the following:

1) Does it heat your food evenly?

2) Are you pleased with the results?
3) How many BTUs would you recommend?

4) Any safetry concerns?

5) Anything else?

I thank you for your time,

El Bandito
