A sear burner features a heating surface that reaches high temperatures quickly for searing. When you sear meats on a very hot surface, you lock in juices and flavor that could get lost on a standard grill burner. The grate rungs on a sear burner are wider than ordinary grate rungs, allowing you to sear food on a larger surface area. With this type of burner, you can guarantee the surface will be hot enough to quickly preserve the flavor of meats before cooking them on your standard burner.
