Not too many have these in their homes because they often have the standard ovens, stoves, microwaves and toaster ovens. There are the countertops burners for the residential kitchen and there are the countertop burners for restaurants and other commercial kitchens.

Let’s start with the countertop burners for the residential home.

Others may want to save money by using their countertop burners for certain foods than waste electricity or gas.

There are different styles available for the residential use. There are some countertop burners that have a single burner, some have double burners and the more expensive burners have three. These are flat plate burners that maybe sit a few inches off the countertop. Then there are the others that have a Convection Rotisserie System or toaster portion on the bottom.

But the most common countertop burners are the regular burners with nothing fancy. Some of the types of burners are made from strong and durable materials as well as safe products as well. Some of these are flat plates as we mentioned and others are called coil burners.

Another difference in the burners is some of them are like stove burners and others are Induction heating plates. They both use electricity to work and depending on what your preference is, they both work well. Though the stove top like burners are said to cook food more evenly than the induction plates. But again, it is a matter of preference.
