New Bosch Gas Stove Can't Boil Water...

krisrishere | Jan 18, 201808:27 AM

After much research and deliberation, I settled on this Bosch range below. Three weeks later (and $2,000), I've tried to boil little saucepans of an inch or two of water on the smaller burners and the water NEVER boils. Even after 15-18 minutes when most of the water has evaporated out of the pans. I just had a service technician from the appliance store over and he said that "everything was working fine and there was nothing he could do." Even after witnessing pots not boiling. A call to the sales rep that sold me the stove said that I can only use 2 of the 5 burners to boil water - the rest will never boil. The front left burner puts off 10,000BTU, the center 18,000 and the front right 15,000. The others are 5,000.

Granted, it's been a while since I purchased a new range however, shouldn't I be able to boil water even on the 10k burner....and it shouldn't take nearly 20 minutes? I don't know but now I'm having seriously buyers remorse. Is something wrong or am I just overreacting? My old GE profile had a "precise simmer" burner that was only 5,000btu's and it boil water like a champ!
