For lower gas consumption and a better result, use flat-bottomed saucepans with a diameter matching the diameter of the burner. Avoid the flame coming up around the sides of the saucepan. 



  • As soon as liquid starts to boil, turn the flame down to a level sufficient to maintain boiling.
  • Match the pan diameter to the flame size. The flame should be the same size as the bottom of the pan or smaller.
  • Do not use small pans with high flame settings, as the flames can lick up the sides of the pan.
  • Oversize pans that span two burners are placed front to rear, not side to side.
  • Use balanced, flat bottomed pans.  Pans must sit level on the cooktop grate without rocking.
  • Center the pan over the burner.
  • Use a Lid that fits properly. A well-fitting lid helps shorten the cooking time.
  • Flat, heavy bottom pans provide even heat and stability.
