Quickly Stir-frying

In essence, commercial wok cookers and commercial flat-top stoves are both cooking equipment, and there is no special function. Chefs don’t need complicated equipment to cook, and the role of cooking equipment is to cook food. But why do Asian restaurants prefer Chinese commercial wok cookers to flat cookers?

Unlike traditional commercial flat-top stoves, commercial wok cookers have a different concave design than flat-top stoves, which is to gather more flames to heat more pot area. It is configured with the same circular heating range as the concave wok, which means that more flames will be applied to the food to heat up, helping the chef to fry a dish in a shorter time.

Commercial Chinese-style wok cookers can reach high temperatures quickly, and high temperatures are a condition for quickly stir-frying food. Especially in Cantonese restaurants, the requirements for stir-frying temperature have reached the extreme, and they can stir-fry a dish within 30 seconds. It is an advantage that traditional commercial flat-top stoves cannot match.

How to describe the heat-gathering ability of the concave wok? You can think of it as a fire entering a cave, heating every corner of the cave sufficiently.

The small desktop frying stove has no open flame but directly releases stronger heat energy than the open flame.

Some Innovations

Although a commercial wok cooker is favored by many Asian cooks, its drawbacks can’t be ignored. Chef Toby believes that summer is the worst season for chefs, and no one wants to stay in the kitchen at 40°C. Commercial gas wok cookers are professional in high flames & concentrated firepower, but they are unbearable in producing high temperatures, oily smoke, and wasting energy.

Chef Toby said: I can’t maintain absolute rationality to stir-fry dishes at a high temperature of 40°C. Sweat and oily smoke have already made me feel irritable.” For a restaurateur, the energy wasted by a commercial gas wok is more annoying than the chef’s slack. Before buying a commercial gas wok, he had already paid a lot for gas pipes, ventilation equipment, and safety certificates.

In the Lestov restaurant cooking equipment series, a commercial wok that saves energy, and costs and keeps the kitchen cooler is on sale. It is no different from commercial gas wok cookers in appearance and function. Some innovative points: It uses an induction heating method without an open flame, which saves 50% of energy costs and improves safety by 35% compared to commercial gas wok cookers.

Restaurateurs don’t have to pay for gas lines, ventilation, and safety certificates before purchasing a commercial induction wok cooker. According to monitoring, the room temperature of a kitchen using a commercial induction wok cooker is 10°C lower than that of a kitchen using a commercial gas wok cooker. The heat range of a commercial induction wok is limited to the pot, which means it won’t heat the cooktop and kitchen.
