I've recently come across a rather nice used 16.25 inch dia. thick old copper skillet with tin lining. It is beautiful and heavy, and I am COVETING it. However, I have a standard size gas stove with no special burners. I love making large batches, so the size really appeals. Of course, the romance of the pan is primarily what is drawing me, I believe.
So, the question is: Silly as it may sound, would cooking across two burners for this work/distribute evenly? Or even a single burner since it conducts so well? O course, part of the pan might be hanging off the side of my stove if went with the single burner.
Oh my, I sound ridiculous, don't I? Ah well, the heart wants what the heart wants, but could it still be "practical"? I want to USE the pan. Not a showpiece....
