    Anyone use this product? Any thoughts?

    Saw it on Kenji's site:
    A couple months ago I was approached by Glen Lee, an inventor who claimed to have an ingenious new device for cooking on a wok at home. If it works the way he promised it would, it's going to revolutionize home wok cooking in the same way that the Baking Steel revolutionized home pizza-making. I played around with it a lot, measuring, tinkering, and generally cooking up a storm. I'm happy to report that this thing solves a problem I've been trying to work around for over a decade.

    Originally there was a delay in production but it seems like they are on top of things now.

    That’s interesting, almost like cooking on a chimney with that flame!

    I did try my burner without the diffuser, well, I tried lighting it without which I realize now won’t work. But I have not tried to light then remove the diffuser to see if that puts the flame going straight up. I saw that on Kenji’s site somewhere, I think. Next time I use the cook top, I’m going to see if that works or if the there’s a safety shut off to kill it once it’s removed.

    Let us know if you end up with this add-on for the wok.

      And I just tried lighting the burner then pulling the diffuser off and it went out like I thought it would.

      I saw that video on Kenji's site as well. I tried it. Mine lights only if the wok is over the flame. If I remove it the flame goes out.

    I made one out of a small metal bowl. Cut the bottom off with tin snips and drilled holes near the bottom. It works awesome. I bet the real product works super well.


    Saw this years ago and never heard since. Thanks for the update.

    given my kitchen vent is insufficient for anything I think I’ll keep the serious wok stuff outside.

      I was thinking the very same thing.

    Interesting, but I am still trying to learn to BBQ/smoke with my pellet grill.


      Invested in a iwatani 35FW butane portable burner back in 2016. When I wok on it can't even use the highest setting because it is way too hot. It's also good for doing Korean BBQ. Use it along with all my grills when cooking my sides. It is also good to take camping. Best thing ever.
