13" or 16" Chamber Ring

Town’s cast iron chamber rings are great for both Cantonese or Mandarin woks and are superior to welded steel rings.  Chamber rings can be removed when required without tools.  13″ chambers accommodate 14″-16″ woks.  A 16″ chamber as shown here, accommodate 18″-22″ woks.

With a footprint of 30" x 26", the M-1-JR is small

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

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.  

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.

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.  Gutters on M-1-JR units are in the rear and have a perforated stainless steel mesh strainer to collect debris.

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.

Flues
Flue risers are located in the rear of the unit that direct excess heat from the chamber up galvanized flue risers and through stainless steel flue caps on top of the backsplash.  Also known as chimneys or exhaust vents, they allow for greater chef comfort.  Not available on M-1-JR ranges.

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.

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 burner has all jet tips pointed up and inwards, leading to a tall focused flame.  Jet burners have a minimal control range but have high flame heights.

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. Jet burners have a minimal control range but have high flame heights.

Ring burner
Refers to a type of cast iron burner with many small flame ports.  An air mixer in between the burner and gas valve controls the air/fuel ratio.  Ring burners have lower flame heights but have a flexible control range.  They are thus known as saute-to-simmer burners.  Town offers a 2 ring burner (consisting of 2 concentric rings) and 3 ring burner (3 concentric rings).

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 M-1-JR.

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 M-1-JR units.

Can I use a stock pot on the wok range?

Town wok ranges with chambers 16″ and larger accept our “T” shape soup pots.  They can be ordered in several variations depending on usage.  Soup pots (SP) have plain rolled edges.  Blanching pots (B) have an overflow spout that allows the pot to drain excess water.  Steaming pots (STM) have an overflow spout and a fill spout to add and/or cycle water in the pot even when covered with steamers.

Can this unit be further customized?

Limited customizations can be made. Contact us for your specific needs. 

Does this have to go under a hood?

This unit is required to go under a hood. 

What is the lead time on this unit?

Lead time varies from 4-8 weeks based on shop load. Inquire with Town for a more accurate lead time.  Note that lead times will vary day to day.  Expedited options may be available. 

What are the warranty terms?

The 1 year limited warranty applies for commercial use only.  See warranty page for more details. 

Is startup or demo available?

Demos for Town’s heavy equipment can be performed by a Town representative. The cost of demo is not included in the price of the equipment. Please contact us  for more information.

Startup is to be conducted by a licensed plumber familiar with the subject equipment, and not Town personnel.  Please see our resources center for startup checklists that may be used as a guide.

How do I schedule a service call to repair a range?

Initiate equipment repair requests by filling out our repair request form.

Field warranty service is only available for heavy equipment. If the issue is warranty related, Town will need to give approval before any work is done. Invoices for unapproved work will not be honored. Service is covered during normal business hours- Monday to Friday 8AM to 6PM. If it is covered under warranty and parts are needed, we will ship the part to the end user free of charge. Town must be contacted so we can initiate the service call.

In instances of claims which we do not believe are covered, the end user or dealer must call in their own service company. If the service report indicates that it is covered under warranty, it will be reimbursed at the standard labor rate. This is at Town’s sole discretion.
