The Star® Burner’s unique shape creates a perimeter 56% longer than a typical round burner of the same size. More flame ports deliver a superior flame spread and reduced center cold spot. Faster and more even heating across any size pan enables superior precision and control. Sear meats, simmer delicate sauces and slowly melt chocolate at the same time. The new Star® Burner’s raised pedestal design makes clean-up effortless.
