What Setting Is Simmer on an Electric Stove?

Answer

'Simmer' is a very common setting for many cooking recipes. However, it can be confusing since the stove doesn't have a 'simmer' setting. Allowing a recipe to 'simmer' simply means to cut the heat down to low or very low heat, to keep it cooking but at a very low setting.
