Burner Basics: Continued

Closed burners
The vast majority of ranges offer sealed burners, which means the entire range top allows no place for spills or grease to drip down into the stove. As a result, jets are positioned so that the gas flows out to the side, then up, slightly reducing efficiency but making cleanup a relatively painless task.
Open burners
In this setup (like the BlueStar burner, left), gas jets shoot straight up from a burner that's suspended over an opening, drawing in lots of oxygen to fuel the flames. Pots and pans heat fast and evenly, but spills collect in a drip pan beneath the burner that must be removed for cleaning.
