The term BTU in cooking equipment stands for the British Thermal Unit (BTU)  which measures a unit of heat.  BTU has a technical definition which is the amount of heat that is needed to raise the temperature of 1 pound of water by 1 degree Fahrenheit.  Our entire line gas equipment, depending on the item, comes with a BTU Value.  For example, we sell a 6 Burner Range by Imperial Range.


This range has 6 burners each a BTU output of 32,000 BTUs.  Many units come with 30,000 BTUs which is a standard range.

What does a higher BTU mean?

A burner with a BTU of 32,000 as opposed to a 30,000 BTU is more powerful and has a higher heat output.  This in turn means the unit is a stronger burner and will heat products up faster.
