From what I can tell the minimum pan size on both front burners is 7.25". I am finding that most 3qt saucepans (my favorite size) measure 6". This sends this pan to the back burners. I have very little, other than a frying pan or a stock pot that I would use in front. If I have all 4 burners going, it would be a skillet, a 3qt, 2 qt, and 1q. It doesn't sound like this would be possible. Anyone out there with first hand knowledge? The samsung has better sizes, but reliability is worrisome.
