Gas burner is a part of the gas stove that is fuelled by combustible gas such as syngas, natural gas, propane, butane, liquefied petroleum gas, or other flammable gas. Before the introduction of gas, cooking stoves depended on solid fuels such as coal or wood. A stove with a standing pilot has a small, continuously burning gas flame (called a pilot light) under the cooktop. The flame is between the front and back burners. Usually, burner heat is known in terms of BTUs (British Thermal Units), and represents the heat produced in one hour. Often, a gas stove will have burners with different heat output ratings. For example, a gas cooktop may have a high output burner, often in the range of 10,000 to 20,000 BTU, and a mixture of medium output burners, 5,000 to 10,000 BTU, and low output burners, 3,000 BTU or less. The high output burner is suitable for boiling a large pot of water quickly, and sautéing & searing, while the low output burners are good for simmering.
Electronic technology is the latest innovation that has tried to replace gas stoves. Gas burners help to cook even without electricity which was earlier not possible with induction and electronic cookers. Many companies offer 5 burner stove which offers even more flames to cook. It reduces human effort and saves time in the kitchen. The latest produce- Hobs, a part of the gas burner, is made of premium quality brass which gives an edge to the gas burner, providing more efficiency. Also, in case of strong winds or if a liquid overflows and puts out the flame, it automatically turns the gas off if the flame gets blown out. These factors create more opportunities for the product in the market.
The use of gas burners could prove fatal if not used with utmost precaution. Some reports suggest that without proper safety precautions, cooking on a gas burner can eject toxic pollutants, including nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide into the air. Carbon monoxide when diffused in the air can cause headache, dizziness, vomiting, or even death. These factors acts as restraints for the gas burner market.
