Gas Range and Burners for All Seasons

Aug 17, 2007
A good set of burners in you kitchen can spell the difference between a terrific cooking experience and a cooking migraine. Choosing the right gas range and the number of burners on them is paramount in any kitchen planning activity. What you cook, how you cook, and your total kitchen experience all depends on the right choice of cooking equipment.

For starters, your choice of burner equipment depends on your cooking preference and skill. The first question you have to ask yourself is: do I really cook? And what do I cook?

Some homeowners jump into the fray and purchase a stove and burners according to how pretty they would look in the kitchen. For many the primary consideration is if the stove will make the kitchen look better. How many burners does this stove have? It doesn't matter, what matters is that you can still boil eggs and fry some stuff

Other owner really know what they need in the kitchen, so choosing the right burner for them becomes more academic that trivial. When choosing which stove and burner to purchase, it would do well to consider the following.

What Do You Want to Cook?

If you don't bake, then it doesn't seem logical to want to purchase a high-tech, high-capacity oven. If you are not into cooking many dishes at the same time, you might want to cut down on the number of burners your stove has. If you plan to roast, or bake in large numbers, you may want to consider buying multiple ovens or at least a gas burner with ovens that can accommodate your needs.

You can choose burners that cater to your particular style of cooking. Some are well-regulated burners suited to steady heating, while some are hot-burners suited to flash-frying and other cooking techniques that may have use of such.

What Do You Want It To Do?

Ranges and burners have, as the course of time passes by, offered more and more features that make cooking more pleasurable. As the cook, however, you will have to gauge which one you need and which ones you don't. Some ranges offer duel fuel capability, self-cleaning ovens, and even touch-pad controls. Some ranges even have convection ovens and simmer burners.

Watch the Specs

Not all ranges are created equal. Not all burners for that matter are created equal too. Before buying a burner, make sure you know its capabilities, its pros and its cons. You cannot be too careful in choosing equipment you will use for pretty much a lifetime. Other factors to consider are its fuel efficiency, its sturdiness, ease of use, and versatility.

You may want to look into its safety too. As with most gas operated equipment involving heat and flames, burners may cause fires. Make sure your equipment of choice is safe and of high quality.

Size Does Matter

Look into how large your pots and pans are and the size of baking pans you will use. It's of no use to break out huge utensils and implements only to realize that they will not fit your stove. If the utensils are tiny instead, they will look dwarfed on a mammoth burner. You should also consider the size of your kitchen. A huge range in a small kitchen will cramp your working space, while a small burner might get lost in a large kitchen.
