Electric Range & Cooktop - Power Boil Burner
Many Electric Ranges and Cooktops feature a PowerBoil™ burner. The PowerBoil™ burner comes in various sizes depending on the range or cooktop model. Here is some information about the size and wattage for PowerBoil™ burners or elements.
The 6"/9" PowerBoil™ element provides up to 3,100 watts of power to speed the boiling process.
It does not show as a separate setting but is normally part of the dual element on the Hi setting.
The 6"/9" PowerBoil™ element is 20% more powerful than the standard 6"/9" element and the PowerBoil™ packs the same wattage as the 12-inch elements into an element that is 33% smaller. By concentrating the heat, our time to boil has been reduced by approximately 14%.
The 8" PowerBoil™ element provides 2,500 watts of power to speed the boiling process.
The 6"/9"/12" 3600W PowerBoil™ element provides up to 3,600 watts of power to speed the boiling process.
It is usually not a separate setting; instead it is the Hi setting.
The higher wattage and higher heating cycle can boil water up to 25% faster in many cases.
