    Do you have one burner on your stove that you favor?

    Do you think that it hurts the stove in any way to always use the same one or two burners?

    When my children were little I read in a parenting magazine not use the front burners as children may end up touching them or knock of hot pots and pans. My children are grown up now but as a habit, I have been using the back two burners on my stove for the past 11 years (occasionally I use the front ones). Its still working fine.

    I like the front burner on the glass top stove. It is one that can be used for large pots and pans, or it can be switched for using small pots and pans.

    On my gas stove, I typically use the larger front burners since they heat more efficiently. Most often it's the one on my right. I use the smaller middle burners for simmering on low heat.

    I have two burners I like - the two out of the three (total) that work!  We live in an RV (3 burner stove), and can't afford to fix the one that doesn't work because the place we stay is the most beautiful place in the world to us and our lot space fee is quite high.  So we put up with the burners and the fan above the stove that we can't get fixed in trade for being able to drive over to the harbor, sit on the public docks of Balboa Island, dangle our feet in the water that flows in from the ocean, and eat our lunch smile  Very interesting question though Susan.

    I cannot tell a lie - I LOVE all my burners the same!  Does that mean I cook too much?  Hmmmm.....

    I use the burners that fit the pots I have. The back right burner doesn't get used much because it is too small for the tea kettle which is usually on the left back burner.  The right back interferes with whatever is cooking in front of it as well..

    I do. The front burner on the right side. It's my go-to burner. I do think that it probably wears on the element/igniters from getting the most frequent use.

    Susan I've never thought about this, but I guess it could make one burn out faster.  I did tend to use the same burner more often, but never realized it.

    Yes Susan, the one that works!! LOL!!

    System says my reply was too short, so I will go further.  My 4-ring stove needs replacing.  I have a multi cooker that does many of the jobs I need done, including high heat.  The one functioning ring I use for small jobs, and the oven and grill are still OK.

    I hope I have typed enough about my boring kitchen situation.  As you can guess cooking is not high on my priority list!  Ha!!Ha!!

    I always use the front left burner. On this stove, it happens to be the "power" burner--but I've always favored that burner. I'm short and right-handed, so I don't know if that contributes to my preference or not.
