2700 watt electric element vs 3000 watt

Posted by loves2read (My Page) on

I have tried to find info on the difference in actual cooking benefits between electric smooth top range with a burner that has top of 2700 vs one with 3000...Is the difference something that actually matters in a big way to anyone using the lower burner or would only a purist really feel the lack.
Anyone have a reference site or experience with using ranges that have the two levels of heating capacity?

3 100w lite bulbs' difference.

I don't think you'll notice it.

Weedmeister, Nicely stated.

It's not a big difference with real cooking results.
If my math and conversion is correct.
2700w = 9212 BTU
3000w = 10236 BTU
This is assuming you are getting a full 240 volts. The BTU difference will be less with lower voltage.
