This exclusive burner design provides 56 percent more flame coverage than standard round gas burners for better heat distribution overall. It also means fewer cold spots, which results in better sears and browning, increased energy efficiency, and greater heat control all around.

Note: It’s recommended to use Thermador ventilation when cooking on Thermador gas cooking appliances. Learn how to pair the right ventilation and gas appliances from the experts themselves here.
