Quick Question: What burner has better BTUs?
The GE bridge element or the Thermador Professional Star Burner.
Have a look:
Answer is GE at 18,000 versus 15,000 for the Thermador.
Guess what...regular non professional stoves have at least one high btu burner of 15,000 or greater. These units start typically at about $600-$700 rather than $2900 from a pro.
