    Default Electric stovetop logic...

    Totally random BUT...
    If you have an electric stovetop do you use a bigger hot plate than the pot?
    If so is it because you believe it heats faster?
    My DH and my mother both do it, it does my head in!! I just dont understand the logic!!! To me it's just wasting electricity because if I put the pot in the right hot plate it's going to heat just as hot and just as fast as the bigger one... RIGHT?!!!

    Yep, I always use the biggest one which is usually conveniently located down the front.

    Lmao! Yes I'm guilty even tho it doesn't make sense... Also it keeps the other stove tops clean so I always use that one as it's filthy!

    I always use the back ones as I have little kids and am paranoid they might grab the front ones. But yes I always use the bigger one 😉
