Abstract

The present invention relates to a burner system with a segmented burner base and a middle base section. Due to the segmented burner base, flames act on independent burner sections and are not linked in a continuous line as in traditional cook top burners. Such a burner with multiple sections prevents the creation of hot or cold spots on a cooking surface, while being able to support round pans, elongated pans, and griddles.

TRI-BRIDGE INDEPENDENT FLAME BURNER SYSTEM

BACKGROUND

The present invention relates generally to appliances, and more particularly to burner systems.

Cook tops typically have one or more burners disposed on a stove. Traditionally burners located on a cook top have flame ports in a continuous line. Further, cook top burners are usually not spaced apart or designed to cooperate with one another to accommodate large or oblong cooking utensils. The use of concentric rings of cooperating gas burners is commonly known in the art.

Generally, burners of an oblong or extended shape are utilized. Such burners are usually oval or semi-circular in nature with flame ports surrounding the burner in a continuous line. However, there is no current system for application of griddles to bridge the application of heat between non-concentric burners and such burners of various shapes.

Therefore would be desirable to have a burner system configuration that supports round pans, elongated oval pans, and griddles without creating hot or cold spots on the cooking surface.
