You know.. I kind of WISH I had that problem. My Problem is the big burner is barley hot enough for the old pressure cooker.

The new pressure cooker... is electric and works very well (instant pot).


Home is where I park it.

Get a SimmerMat from Amazon and put a large pizza stone or cast-iron griddle in the bottom of the oven.

I have a new suburban oven/cooktop, same problem. If anyone has a fix I would like to here it. Our last unit was an attwood and the oven and stovetop were great the suburban is a POS. It does not simmer and the oven burns the bottom of everything , my wife hates it.

Pizza stone in the bottom of the oven will smooth out the heat fluctuations.

A diffuser works fine. You can buy one or just use a lid off a large tin can.

I know it takes a lot of intellectual thinking, but why not slide the pot
off to one side of the burner,.......like I been doing for years ??

I suppose I might but I just dropped 150 grand on this motorhome and really don't want to replace a brand new stove. I also realize you can put a pizza stone in the oven and a a simmer ring on the stovetop but it's a mickey mouse fix that should not have to be made.

Move the pan until just a part of it is being heated. That may be MM but it works.

Verify correct LPG pressure.
