Unlike regular coils, stovetop burner covers provide constant, even heat on a solid, easy to clean surface. Burner plates reduce boil overs and scorching. These heat plates retain heat longer so you can cook at lower temperatures while giving your stove a sleek, fresh look.
"I believe that they save electricity, because they stay hot after the heat reaches the right temperature. They also help to keep the stove clean. Last night, my wife remarked that they prevented some grated cheese from getting into the burners." -Customer from Kansas
