The wok burner delivers 200,000 BTU of thermal power whereas a domestic burner delivers 10,000 BTU.
If you adore cuisine, you must adore the sophistication of Chinese cuisine. There are few foods in and on our planet that are as sophisticated in technique, aside from Japanese.
Although I am not a fan of high temperature cooking, a wok is a tool that has a two-thousand year old or more. This movie is a short, the wok is seasoned by being heated almost red-hot and then it is kept hot throughout service. The chef can easily and very quickly prepare his dishes by maintaining his wok, hot and oiled. What is amazing about these kitchen tools is that the mess is contained to one surface area. There are no pans to wash or dirty counters.
