Oval Burner Questions/Concerns (on some models)

Center Oval Burner - on some models

The Center Oval Burner is available on some newer model Gas Slide-In and Free Standing Ranges. This burner, sometimes known as the "Fish Burner", and is designed for use with griddles, long cookware, and oblong pans. You can easily fit large griddles and other longer cookware on this fifth burner so that they heat evenly.

This Oval burner is 10,000 BTU and has a different burner cap than most gas burners. The oval cap, known as a "Spreader", is attached to the burner base. It must be installed correctly to have a good and efficient flame.
