Most gas on glass hobs come with different types of burners, which matter based on what you're cooking. Some of the types of burners these hobs might have include wok, economy, semi-rapid, and rapid. A wok burner has a high power output of around 12,000 BTU/h. The flames spread widely in this type of burner. Wok burners are frequently used in Asian cooking and for searing meat at high temperatures. You can also use the wok burner for cooking in large pans.
When you don't want a liquid to boil or you just need to keep sauce or food warm, you should use the economy burner because it is smaller and has a lower power output. Semi-rapid burners fall somewhere between wok and economy burners. They have medium power output and can be used for boiling water and cooking a lot of everday food. A rapid burner has high power output and can also be used for cooking many types of meals. Only use the wok burner when you need to stir-fry, sear meat, or use any other cooking method that calls for the wok burner.What are common features of gas on glass hobs?
