Plus, the burner is easily removed, making cleaning a breeze after your event. It requires no electricity so you can use it anywhere, just use the manual knob to control the flame!

Plus, it also provides superior heat retention to distribute heat more evenly to your cookware, thus ensuring your foods are fully cooked throughout.

We purchased this stove for a farmers market as a way to heat up if corrective action was needed.I used two of them today for a small event with an 8″ and 7″ pan and it made everything run much smoother.

Easy snap in gas tank with a push of a lever and the unit even comes with a case!

Set-up was simple and the carrying case makes it easy to transport. This is an ideal piece of equipment for any cook whether starting or professional. Life span is ok, but for price per life they are a great product. They come in a handy carrying case that is lightweight and easily transportable!

We use these for our pasta bar that we do on site for customers we truly enjoy working with these. Butane cartridges are easy to install and remove (for storage). Perfect for omelet stations or onsite warming of soup and such. I purchased four of these for use when cooking at stations for my catering company. Many gas equipment manufacturers need to make adjustments to the equipment so it operates correctly at elevations over 2, 000 feet. Perfect size burner to keep on hand for those times you need to make sauce and don’t have a full range. Great for pasta stations or any live action cooking station. I used two of them today for a small event with an 8″ and 7″ pan and it made everything run much smoother.

You can even use these at events for coffee or hot chocolate. It helps heating items on the road, for cooking classes, demonstrations or to use indoors or outdoors when entertaining.

We love being able to handle omelet stations and pasta bars.

I am very happy with how well it works and how quickly it heats a pan. At this price everyone should have a few of these with extra cans of fuel on hand. They did arrive with damage to all carrying cases, but the vendor provided great customer service to resolve this issue. Purchased as both a backup to a power outage and as a burner for an omelet station. I used it for less than a year and trash it and bought better one. The price makes it perfect to buy just to add burner space in your kitchen. These are great for a la carte cooking stations on a buffet!

They are the best value around and will purchase more in the future.

In both methods, the source of the heat is not uniformly spread over the pan. High quality cookware should not only be durable, but also take the energy from the heat source and effectively transmit this energy to the ingredients. The two most important factors are thermal conductivity and heat capacity. This increases the internal kinetic energy of the pan (commonly called “heating up”).

For example, if we placed a large sheet of stainless steel (fairly low thermal conductivity as cooking materials go) on a burner and turned on the burner, the area directly under the burner would get hot while the rest of the sheet slowly heats up. The rest of the pan heats up from the conduction of the heat from that spot. The figure below shows an example of the temperature of the sheet of steel over a gas burner. Because the top surface is a greater distance from the heating element, the energy needs to conduct from the bottom to the top (just like the energy conducts outwards). The hot spot (white) is reduced by the time the heat conducts to the top surface of the sheet. For this reason, the thicker the steel, the less variation in temperature on the top surface. So a pan made of a low thermally conductive material will take a longer time to reach cooking temperatures. In most cooking applications, it is desirable to have the utensil heat up quickly, not develop hot spots, and react to changes we make to the range controls. The molecular composition of some materials is such that as they absorb energy, much of it gets converted into potential energy and only a small amount increases the molecular kinetic energy (water is a common example). So, a 2 kg piece of steel has double the heat capacity of a 1 kg piece of steel (make sense, right?). When energy is pulled out of the material, the temperature of the material will lower slowly when compared to materials with low heat capacity.

The specific heat (the heat capacity of a material for a given mass) of cast iron is half of aluminum’s specific heat, but because cast iron cookware is generally several times the mass of aluminum cookware, it has a much higher heat capacity. Thermal conductivity alone does not determine how fast the pan will heat up (and also how evenly it will heat). Unfortunately, both copper and aluminum react readily to foods. But, through the magic of cookware companies wanting to find ways to charge us lots of money, solutions have been devised to enable us to enjoy cookware made of materials with high thermal diffusivity and low reactivity. There are several variations on this theme: steel- or tin-lined copper, stainless steel with aluminum or copper disk, stainless steel cladded aluminum, and stainless steel cladded copper. When the cooking task requires the ability to maintain consistent heat (and ample amounts of it), nothing beats cast iron. The material is prone to oxidation but with care, will retain its beauty indefinitely. Anondized aluminum has been treated to develop an aluminum oxide (extremely hard and non-reactive) coating on the surface of the utensil.

Enameled cast iron has a thin but durable nonreactive layer of glass fused to the surface of the utensil. A seasoned utensil should receive minimal contact to soap or detergent. It can be annealed (heating the metal until its molecular structure realigns to alleviate internal stresses and then specially cooled to preserve the new structure) to form blue steel (or black steel), a harder and less reactive material. Stainless steel can also be used to line copper or aluminum utensils as well as cladding aluminum or copper (see aluminum and copper cookware summaries above). Of course, not all stainless steel clad aluminum (sometimes called tri-ply or five-ply depending on construction) are the same. If you live in a metropolitan area you can often find them at garage sales — and at 50 cents to a couple bucks per pan, this excellent cookware is a steal. My opinion is that each piece should be selected for a specific technique. Aluminum or copper stainless ply makes for a great skillet but would tend to radiate heat out the sides if used for a saucepan. Understanding the materials used is a good first step in understanding how cookware works and what factors may be important to your cooking style. In a gas stove, the gas come out at regular intervals and forms a ring of individual flames. Because the heat is not applied evenly, the cook must be aware of this and either compensate with cooking technique or through cookware.Almost all discussions concerning the materials used in cookware are focused on these two factors. When the fire or heating element of a range comes in contact to a pan, the energy from the heat source is transmitted to the pan. The higher the thermal conductivity of the material, the faster it will heat up and also, the faster the heated area will spread to unheated areas of the same piece of material. The burner imparts heat quickly only to the region of steel directly over it. When the outer edges of the sheet have reached a hot temperature, the spot directly over the burner would be extremely hot. The hottest parts are shown in white, hot is red and cool is blue.

When heating a thick piece of steel (instead of a thin sheet), the bottom surface of the steel does not have the same temperature pattern as the top surface. The figure below shows the thick sheet of steel after it has been sliced so the center of the front edge is where the burner heat touches the bottom of the sheet. Where the sheet is being heated, the temperature is more uniform now, but we still have uneven heating with this material. In fact, materials with low thermal conductivity take longer to react to any change in temperature, so the thermal response of the pan would also be slow. Materials with high thermal conductivity fulfill our needs because they transmit heat quickly resulting in fast response to thermal changes and even distribution of the internal kinetic energy. This isn’t the same thing as temperature, which is the average molecular kinetic energy within the material. While thermal conductivity describes the materials ability to absorb energy, heat capacity is the amount of energy that is needed to raise or lower the temperature of the material. The heat capacity of a material is proportional to its mass. Cast iron is often cited as an example of a high heat capacity cookware material. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a single number that told us at what rate heat would transfer through and spread out in the material?

By combining the non-reactive surface of stainless steel with the thermal properties of copper or aluminum, you get the best of both worlds. Because cast iron can react with acidic foods and ingredients that are cooked for a long time, cast iron cookware is seasoned – a process by which layers of fat are slowly cooked into the porous iron until the fat polymerizes forming a protective barrier (and makes the utensil relatively non-stick). Clad or lined aluminum has had stainless steel bonded to the interior of the utensil to form a non-reactive surface.The iron is melted down and poured into a sand or clay mold to form the utensil. Wash by soaking in warm water for a few minutes and repeatedly scrubbing with salt and rinsing until salt remains white (usually one scrubbing is does it). If desired, pan can be washed in soapy water, scoured, and reseasoned quickly (15 minute seasoning) because of its less porous nature than cast iron. Disks of copper or aluminum can be fused to the stainless steel cookware to enhance its thermal properties. Farberware used to make aluminum-clad stainless steel cookware which had a a much thicker aluminum layer than the products they are now producing. However, many of the non-stick coatings outgas irritating or toxic gases when heated strongly (which those of us who stir-fry a lot tend to do). Except for some problems with the handles, the pans still look almost new even though they’ve been through three children and numerous dishwasher cycles. For example stainless with a thick disk bottom is good for sauce pans but poor for an omelet pan for the same reason: the sides don’t get hot. It makes beautiful casseroles, bakes a roast, or heats frozen entres. This type of cookware is thin aluminium coated with enamel inside and out.

I understand the grill does not come with a propane tank, but does it include the gas line for connection from the propane tank to the grill?

This is a very nice grill in appearance, however, it is very cheaply made. And this is a part that they don’t even list on the replacement parts list !

Looks nice but very cheaply made and no warranty honored after 1 year!

I worked with it for a year and 2 months, and finally called the company for help. This model operates off of three high grade stainless burners as well as an aluminum die-cast side burner both triggered by automatic piezo ignitions. Angled flame tamers deflect heat, prevent flare-ups and transform drippings into flavor vapors that infuse foods with a distinctive smoky taste. Casters make it easily portable and the built-in thermometer enables precise temperature regulation. An electric ignition allows it to fire up instantly and an upper-level warming rack provides a place to heat buns and keep foods toasty. The grill came all put together in a very professional manner (and nothing was missing) and, moreover, was ready for immediate use, which was bonus. Also, the heat defectors are also cheap and very, very thin. Make sure you purchase a protection plan because it will be needed. There wasn’t even a hint of sizzle when they touched the mat. Now, the grilling grates are falling apart when you even try to pick them up. I am giving the product a belated 5 stars, but am a bit disappointed by he slowness of customer service.
