Largest pan on flush mount cooktop?

Does anybody have the measurements of the burners on the new standard flush mount cooktop or can share the largest diameter pan they successfully use? Thanks in advance!

We cook outside but here are the dimensions.
Max size pan on one side would be 9 inches however another 9 inch pan would not fit on the other side.
Otherwise two pans 8 1/2 inches dia.

Now I have to go to the camper and measure the pan Terry cooks pancakes. This could be a deal breaker!

Enjoy,

That's why you buy a griddle that covers a couple burners.
But, if we are having pancakes, we need bacon, so best to cook breakfast outside.

That is the solution, outside cooking, part of the camping experience. Only time we cook inside is when it is too cold or snowing, otherwise out it is, even in the rain. The stove in side, to us, is an auxiliary stove, back up spare in case out outside one malfunctions.

Thanks Ed that’s what I needed. My favorite sauté pan won’t work so we will have to adjust.

We do also cook outside primarily but weather does move us inside some as we travel heavily during shoulder season.

I agree. My first reaction is 'this is form before function'.

If you used a 10 or 12 inch skillet would it 'fit', and would it 'scorch' or otherwise damage the laminate counter top?

I plan to full time in my 19. It's completion date is Sept 26th, but it's not in production yet. I wonder if the other stove top would still be available?

The only stove top with full pan capacity is the 3 burner oven combo. That stove is close to what you would have in your home, with 2 good sized burners and a small burner. But with everything in these small units, space is a premium, a full timer in a 19 would need the oven option but loses counter space, which do you want? Pick you best choice, but you can not have both, at least inside.

I really like the way the flush mounted stove looks, but it wouldn't be practical for me. I just spent a bunch of money on Magma SS nesting pots (thanks Amazon Prime Day!) and the largest pan is 9.5" across. IF I can't use it inside, that means outside on a grill and I don't want to take more stuff just to use a pot! So, maybe look at all the cookware you like/want to use and make your decision based on that.

Yes, these are lightweight, compact trailers, a step up from tent camping and cooking on a one burner stove and nowhere as big or heavy as those behemoths diesel pushers with a washer/dryer and 6 burner stove, we all abhor. There are compromises to be made in exchange for the benefits obtained.
