What is the difference in French hot plates and an electric burner on the stove? We need to cook for a daycare on this item.
French plates resemble a series of flat, concentric rings. The inner portion is for high heat and the outside is for low heat. The plate is made of cast iron. Low heat cooking and simmering is possible with a French plate and unless you cook at low temperatures frequently, you might not need a French plate on your range. Hope this helps!
