    It's mostly on donabe duty. Rice from Kamado san is godlike.



    I've also done a round or two with the donabe smoker.





    Haven't done hot pot yet. Mostly because I can't stop eating the rice.

    I just did a round of stir fry with the Iwatani and it does a pretty decent job. It's definitely way hotter than any range's burner I've ever used personally, which is saying something. In small batches, wok hey is certainly achievable.



    But it ain't a wok burner. I highly recommend the Iwatani 35FW as a portable burner for indoor or outdoor use. For tabletop use for hotpot, the smaller "slim" Iwatani is a better choice. I have both. They're cheap for what they are. They're pretty high output burners that you can throw in a tote bag and were designed to be used safely indoors. In short, they're the balls. There are all kinds of weirdo accessories for the slimline Iwatani. I have this one but haven't used it yet:



    Also this:



    Lots of fun to be had with the Iwatanis.

    There's so little English language documentation for all this stuff, it's sort of hilarious.

    @Jovidah the rough surface also brings a mechanical semi-nonstick property with it - reasonably firm stuff can't really get stuck flush and solid to it. Truly compliant things are quite another matter.

    I recently picked a up a Staub medium sized wok and it's constantly in use. Superb heat distribution and easy to clean, mine was a little over $250.

    I've always been intrigued by the Staub woks / universal pans for a low maintenance stir-fry option, but already have so many Staub pieces I cannot justify the expense (or storage space).

    BTW, I like your username

    I think I did a review on cheftec pan. I actually use it over the Iwataini stove too. Its my bacon cooker. I use a large lid to press the bacon as it cooks, grease just pours out.

    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.
