How do broilers work?

Tamar G | Feb 23, 2005 06:02 PM

I have always believed that the broiler will turn off if the door is not kept open by 1 inch when the broiler is on. Is this true?

Right now I have a gas broiler but I have always had electric broilers before. (it's not possible to test the theory right now because I don't have access to my apartment for a few days.)
