Extra Powerful Stock Pot Burners For Extra Large Pots
Stock pot ranges, also called stock pot burners, are commercial ranges specifically designed to accommodate sizeable pots and cooking vessels. Their long-lasting cast-iron grates placed in larger burner sections can withstand heavy-duty pots filled with liquids. Plus, their low-height construction rids food prep staff of the hassle and risk of lifting bulky stockpots on standard ranges. These features make them particularly suitable for cooking large-batch soup, pasta, sauce, or other liquid dishes.
Choosing Your Stock Pot Range
Stock pot ranges have a straightforward design. They stand out with their sturdy construction and high energy output their burners generate. Unlike most commercial ranges, they do not offer multiple stovetops and base configurations. Stock pot stoves feature a burner section with removable grates, an open or enclosed cabinet base, and adjustable legs. Your selection will be based on the fuel type and number of burners.
- Power Source for Stock Pot Ranges: Large pieces of cookware like stockpots require much higher energy. Although electric stock pot ranges are also available, gas is the standard fuel type. An electric stock pot range would take more time and energy to reach the extra heating power needed for large cookware. Stock pot range gas models can quickly heat up and generate high BTU ratings at lower costs. You can visibly control and easily adjust the cooking temperatures as they have open burners. They often come with a conversion kit. You can use your natural gas stock pot range with a propane tank.
- Stock Pot Range's Burner Section Quantity: Stock pot ranges have separate sections for every burner. Your cooking demands and space limitations will specify your choice. A 2-burner stock pot range will occupy more horizontal space than a single-burner stock pot range. If you have to prepare bulks of soups, stews, sauces, or pasta, you may wish to buy a range with 6 burner sections. More sections mean increased cooking capacity but more free space and gas consumption. There are also step-up burner models, with one burner section higher than the other.
- Stock Pot Range's Burner Rings Per Section: Commercial stock pot ranges have ring-shaped burners placed under the grates. Larger pots are sized around 20 inches in diameter, so power from a single ring may fail to provide the desired heat. The double-ring and 3-ring stock pot gas burners use independent gas valves for inner and outer rings. You can thus have greater control over cook cycles.
Commercial stock pot ranges are small but can handle heavy cookware and produce high energy enough to prepare large quantities of liquid meals in no time. They also save you from the backbreaking labor of lifting heavy pots with a low-height design.
