15 1/4'' and 17'' Lodge skillets on gas rangetop
I am gas-dumb and also cast iron-dumb. It seems, though, that I will soon (hopefully) be in a kitchen with a propane-fueled rangetop, and would also like to get some cast iron cookware. I am intrigued by the Lodge Logic 15 1/4" frying pan, and also noted they have a 17". I have a big family to cook for, so I'd imagine we may be able to fill these pans...But, I wonder how you cook in a 15-17" round pan on a 12" square burner? Does the gas heat reach further than it does on electric so it can handle larger pans? Would you have to span 2 burners somehow? Does the cast iron just heat differently so can get hot even if it's not directly over the flame?
BTW, I'm looking at BlueStar, Wolf, and Capital Precision rangetops, so, in general, shouldn't be short on firepower.
