### Low heat

• If you're using a gas stove, it's the minimum possible setting.
• If you're using an electric stove, it's generally the setting one third to the maximum for the first 5 minutes, then it's the lowest setting. This is because an electric stove takes a few minutes before reaching the desired temperature.

### Medium heat

• If you're using a gas stove, it's the setting midway between minimum and maximum.
• If you're using an electric stove, it's the middle setting.

### High heat

• If you're using a gas stove, it's the maximum setting.
• If you're using an electric stove, it's the maximum setting for the first 3-5 minutes, then it's the last but one. This is because the maximum setting of an electric stove tends to become too hot, and dangerous for you, after a few minutes.
