What do I need to know about delivery?

Ranges are shipped via common carrier, class 92.5.  All heavy equipment is shipped in a custom fully enclosed and framed wooden crate fabricated by our in house carpenter.  

What is some important terminology to know when dealing with wok ranges?

  1. Chamber – Town refers to each hole in the top deck as a chamber.  It includes its own gas valve, recessed burner, insulation, and chamber ring.  They can also be referred to as holes, burners, wells or stations.  
  2. Chamber ring – Also known as a wok ring, this is the round cast iron ring that sits on top of the deck that the cooking wok sits on.  A wok ring uses a wok pan that is 2” to 4” larger in diameter than the wok hole size.  The exception is for the 13” chambers, which typically use a 14” to 16” Mandarin (single stick handle) wok.  Larger sizes use Cantonese (two loop handle) woks.  Mandarin chamber rings have a sloped top that enables the chef to easily flip and toss food within the pan.  Competitors may use welded steel rims or prongs that do not stand up to massive heat over time, and require welding to repair.
  3. Gutter – A recessed channel in the deck that collects cooling water and debris from the deck into our internal sink and strainer system.  Also known as a trough.  Not available on mobile wok carts.
  4. Chinese swing faucets – A faucet that turns on automatically by moving its spout over the wok.  Move the spout to the left or right to turn it off.  Not available on mobile wok carts.
  5. Knee valve – Town wok ranges are provided with “L” shaped gas valve handles for each burner.  They allow chefs to adjust the flame with their knee, even while both hands are already being used.
  6. Volcano and jet burner – A jet burner is a type of burner that has round brass tips.  The brass jet tips are oriented in different directions and the orientations will affect the flame characteristics.  A volcano has all jet tips pointed up and inwards, leading to a tall focused flame.
  7. Shield or duck bill burner – Refers to a type of burner with brass jets that looks like a duck bill, as opposed to a round shaped tip.  The duck bill shape is more clog resistant when compared to round jet tips.
  8. Pilot safety system – A flame failure device that turns off gas to the pilot light and burner if pilot light goes out.  This is a code requirement is some locations.  Contact your local authorities for more details.  If the range is interlocked to a hood, pilot safety systems are not needed.  Normally an optional extra, this comes standard on the mobile wok cart.
  9. Warming chamber – A small non insulated hole that accepts insets or bain maries for blanching, boiling or holding oils and stock.  Can be burner heated, flue heated, or unheated.  Also known as boiling pots, oil holes, or recessed holes.  Not available on mobile wok carts.

Is this cart suitable for indoor or outdoor use?

Is a faucet available?
