Tracy Burleson Helping To Make Natural Gas the Star of the Kitchen

Guest Blogger: Mike Besack on behalf of Thermador*

Nothing stands out in the kitchen quite like the unique flow of natural gas on a powerful cooktop, range or rangetop. It’s part of what makes cooking an integral part of the American home. Thermador certainly has done its part to help make that special experience happen on a whole other level.

When Thermador first introduced the exclusive Star® Burner in 1998, the shape of gas cooking was literally changed. The typical, circular natural gas burner was transformed into a striking, catchy star. This design offers ample heat coverage and a smaller cold spot, making it ideal for any pan size. It’s tailor made for the perfect pancake, your favorite searing recipe or anything you love to cook that demands maximum and even heat.

Thermador’s Star Burner design allows for more ports and flame distribution than a typical round burner (35 ports around the perimeter versus 28), as well as a maximum power of 22k British thermal unit (Btu) and a delicate simmer of 375 Btu. Consumers will also appreciate the elevated brass burner and solid black maintop allowing for quick and easy cleanup.

All Thermador gas cooktops and ranges feature the exclusive Star Burner, and even the most demanding of culinary enthusiasts couldn’t be happier. It’s a welcomed star of any kitchen.

The Star Burner will also be on display as part of the American Natural Gas and Propane Industries exhibit at the National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders’ Show on January 22 through 24 in Las Vegas, NV.
