From Fort Myers to Sarasota, our customers have asked us questions about the unique five pointed shape of the Thermador Star Burners. Thermador understands the serious, at-home chef. For this type of culinary artist, round burners, cold spots and difficult clean up just were not cutting it. The solution was their exclusive star design.
These patented star burners are the cornerstone of the Professional Series Rangetops. In 1998, Thermador introduced the first Professional Ranges and Cooktops with star burners. The shape was not just for show. The star shape was found to deliver superior flame spread and reduced cold spots.
Why Thermador Star Burners Distribute Heat Better Than A Circle
The star shape distributes heat better than a circle. According to Thermador, the Star Burner’s coverage area allows for more ports and more flame distribution than a round burner. Even heating is the result, due to the superior flame spread and reduces cold spots. And, it is ideal for any size pan.
The average round burner has 28 ports and a perimeter of 10 3/4″. The Star Burner has 35 ports and a perimeter of 16 3/4″. This star shape creates a perimeter that is 56% longer than its round rival.
Additional Features of the Thermador Star Burner:
- An Extralow® feature, which cycles the Star Burner on and off to maintain temperatures as low as 100°. This is perfect for simmering delicate sauces, or warming food without scorching.
- A Quick Clean Base™ accompanies the raised pedestal burners and porcelain maintop. This new design allows for easy access under the burner for effortless cleaning.
- Each burner is rated at 18,000 BTU/hr and delivers superior cooking flexibility by offering maximum heat output on every burner.
- The output and superior distribution boils water in a fraction of the time of a conventional range or cooktop. It is the fastest time to boil, over 50% faster than leading competitors.
