You know they are there…two or three smaller empty spaces on your stove or cooktops that go mostly unoccupied. Those larger, bigger, more powerful burners get all the credit, the overachieving front row. Isn’t it time you spread the love around? For too long, the back burners have been under rated. Sure, on big holidays they save the day keeping the gravy at the perfect temperature without clumping. Cooktops and the smaller burners are made to be used, and we mean for more than just heating up the tea kettle. For most of us, you use the small burners for the small saucepans, which are typically used to heat up soup, warm milk, melt butter or making rice. But, it can do oh so much more! Today, for the first time in a long time, celebrate the back row of burners!
Why Cooktops Need the Small Burners
The simplest answer to that question is this: because of the cookware. In the most basic of cookware sets consumers will purchase, the standard items are the tiny, but mighty, 1-quart saucepan, 2-quart saucepan, the multi-purpose 5-quart stockpot, the 7″ fry pan and its big brother, the 9.5″ fry pan. Really, to effectively heat the larger saucepans or fry pans, a larger heating element is required on the cooktops. For example, check out the Electrolux 30″ Drop-In Electric Cooktop. This model, the EI30EC45KB, has stainless steel trim and a smooth ceramic glass surface that is sleek in style and easy to clean. It has 4 elements including a powerful quick boil element that boils water faster when you need it and a Flex-2-Fit element that adjusts up to 3 sizes. The precise Express-Select electronic controls allow you to go from simmer to boil easily.
