How Does the Stove Work?
There are two types of electric stoves, but they both have the same basic function. The less modern type has hot-plate-style heating coils. The newer type has a glass-ceramic cooktop, which has very low thermal conductivity. This cooktop can be less safe, as the burner areas don’t change color when heating (unlike the coiled style).
Gas stoves are fueled by an external gas line that feeds directly into the stove via a series of pipes. When the stove is turned on, gas travels through the pipes in the stove. While in these pipes, the gas mixes with air, which allows the gas to produce a blue, easily controllable flame when lit. About halfway down the line, a small pipe branches off the main gas line. This pipe leads to the pilot light, a small flame that always remains lit. The pilot light ignites the gas in the small pipe, and the flaming gas travels back down that pipe to the main gas line. That flame ignites the gas in the main line, and the flame travels to the burner. The size of the flame is controlled by the amount of gas traveling through the main line.
