Ranges - Open Burner

  • Energy Input: 15-30 kBtu/h
  • Applies heat (flame or electric element called a speed coil) directly to bottom of pan or pot
  • Electric ranges can have cover, known as French Plate, over element - preheats faster than hot plate, more durable and easier to clean than speed coil
  • Non-thermostatically controlled, but visible flame allows for operator adjustment on gas ranges
  • Gas burner designs include circular ring of cast iron or steel, or newer star burner with radiating arms for more even flame distribution
  • Fast heat up, but more clean-up work than other range top designs
