Gas burner

Gaeseu-beoneo 개스버너

Korean portable gas stove

A lot of people ask me about the gas burner I use in my videos: they want to know where I got it, and how much it costs, and if they need one to make Korean food. You don’t need to have one, I use it because it’s convenient, hot, has a flame (I prefer a flame over an electric element) and I can quickly put it on the counter and face the camera when I’m cooking.

Koreans use these burners all the time to cook bulgogi or samgyeopsal at the dinner table, at restaurants and at home. Korean food is very social, so having the burner on the table suits this style of eating, where you can cook, drink, eat, and have fun with your friends and family all at the same time.

You can find them in most Asian grocery stores for around $25, and also on Amazon.

If you buy one, you will also need to buy some butane gas canisters for fuel:

    Howdy –
    I’m researching a gas burner to add to my disaster gear — I live in San Francisco area: quake country, fire zone AND terrorism target XD — and hoping you can point out which features I should look for or beware of.
    do you have experience with butane or propane burners? which do you prefer?
    thanks for your help and the terrific site.

    Hi,
    I was wondering if you knew of anywhere – or even what type of shop to look for – where one could buy the tables with the burner in the middle, like they had at nearly all the restaurants I went to in Seoul. We’re in Japan now and dying for more authentic Korean food. By the way, your recipes are vastly superior to whatever recipes they’re using out in town here, at the few Korean restaurants we’ve found on Okinawa. I am such a fan, and continually send family, friends, and even total strangers to your site!
