I thought a small burner would heat up a big pot of water if it was on high.
It does. It takes about half an hour to bring the water to a boil for spaghetti.
A few weeks ago our large burner stopped burning. I'm afraid we're going to have to buy a new stove.
Replacing a burner on an old stove - probably $200. Then you wait for another to go out when you could have bought a stove for maybe $500.
We need to go shopping.
