Have a 3 burner stove and wish 1 of them could be turned down much lower. I wonder if a smaller sized burner would work nice and safe?

If not an easy solution is a heat diffuser.

I can't believe that some TT's and RV's come with none adjustable stove burners. Even my 17' Viking has 2 fully adjustable stove burners. I can turn it way down to simmer soup.
I would be replacing any stove that was nonadjustable.

Hi wopachop,

My natural gas stove had 4 burners. One was "super size" and one was tiny.

I'm sure you could source a smaller burner.

Mine is the 3 burner setup like Buscuit mentioned. Dont have the model number yet.

1 of them is high output. Would be awesome to make another super small.

I have a diffuser I use for long low slow cooking. Mine turns down to barely a flame, but it still will make liquid boil after a long period of time.

Here is a possible workaround -- a double thick diffuser. You can use one or both, depending on how much you want to reduce the heat.

Double diffuser

But I agree that it would be nice to have a super small burner for low heat applications. I have one in my stick house -- it is a Dacor 5 burner unit, and one of the burners is very small.

I don't know if anyone makes a similar cooktop for use in an RV.

When I can't turn it down low enough I move the pot.
