I'm in the US. I have an electric stove with three 6" burners, and one 8". The 8" burner doesn't perform like I think it used to, so I'm considering replacing it, to see if it improves. (It's slow to heat up, and intermittently adjusts unevenly throughout the temperature range. I think it's intermittently turning off more than it's supposed to, at least when it's not on high.)
I was browsing for replacement burners, and saw that the coils come with different numbers of turns, at different prices.
Could I replace the burner with one that has a different number of coils? (The current 8" burner has 4 coils. I saw replacements with 4 and 6.)
If so, what is the difference in performance between more / fewer coils? i.e. Why would I consider spending more for the 6-turn element?
