Abrégé

The present application relates to a method for manufacturing a gas stove and a gas stove manufactured by this method. The method comprises: manufacturing a general rough-machined part for forming a burner base of a gas stove; and machining a gas passage in the rough-machined part to form the burner base according to one of multiple flame control modes, so that multiple flame rings can be controlled according to selected flame control mode. The basic idea of the present application is to produce burner bases with the same external configuration but different internal gas passage configurations based on a general rough-machined part, which thereby can be assembled with other general gas stove parts to form gas stoves with different flame control modes, so as to reduce the production cost and meet different cooking requirements of users. In particular, the present application provides a gas stove that allows each flame ring to be controlled independently, so that the flame size and temperature in different areas are accurately controlled during cooking.
