Excerpt: ... high heat may be used when it is desired to heat anything quickly: soups, stews, water, etc. Then by turning to medium it will keep boiling, using the minimum of current. It will keep warm on low heat. The great economy of this can easily be seen. "In frying, use high and medium. In broiling, high heat should be used. For toasting, use medium and low.
