What burner should I select when purchasing my wok?

This depends entirely on what you are cooking. Our woks can come with 3 different burner types, and if ordering a 2 burner or 3 burner unit you can mix and match the burner types.

A guide:

  • Chimney burner – Strongest burner in our range. Designed to be run at full strength and not turned down. Suitable for wok units and hot Chinese style cooking.
  • Duckbill burner – Versatile burner, suitable for cooking stocks, curries and heating water and oil. Designed to have an adjustable flame. Suitable for wok or stockpot units. Popular with Malaysian, Thai and Indian restaurants.
  • Dual Ring burner – Energy efficient burner with lower output. Designed to have an adjustable flame. Suitable for wok or stockpot cookers.
