Outdoor Wok Burners from Thailand - KB5
Ever wondered how to cook authentic Thai cuisine in your backyard?
In this article, I will briefly describe the most popular burner for Asian stir- fried dishes and try to answer most frequently asked questions by our foreign customers.
Starting from the power of the burner, KB5 is a mid-range high pressure burner. This model is mostly used in Thailand. Most restaurants have at least one set. If you have ever visited Thailand, I am sure you could see them very often while enjoying Street Food or walking around cities.
Why KB5? It’s very simple, the power is strong enough to make most Thai dishes.[ASS1] They are efficient because they use less gas than KB7 and KB8 which is a crucial factor for business owners, especially independent family-owned restaurants, or street vendors.

For bigger models like KB7 and KB8, they have the power output of between 60,000-65,000 BTU. They are normally used to cook larger portion of food like in restaurants such as preparing curry or stock as well as deep frying. While KB10, 15, and 20 are used in factories for both food and non-food applications.
Are there different types of KB5?
There are 2 main types of KB5;
What else do I need to start using KB5?
Once you have purchased the burner with valve you will need few things in order to use it.
Let’s begin from the pressure regulator. They are very easy to get so we always recommend buying them in your country for few reasons. One of them is the fact that some norms such as CE are required. Another thing that you have to remember is the gas tank you use may have different connection than we have in Thailand and you will not be able to connect it unless you can find an adapter. When you choose your regulator, always make sure it can be applied to high pressure. The optimal pressure for KB5 is 30 - 35 PSI or 2 - 2.4 bar. That is the only requirement that need to be met. You can buy any regulators that can adjust to the required pressure. Therefore, the color, size, shape, or gauge all those do not matter. If you are wondering what type of gas we use in Thailand, it’s propane butane.
How do I assemble my burner?
There may be some slight differences such as the type of hose (no clips) but in general if you follow the steps showed below it should be more than enough to make it work.
