What is the connection between the stove and" using a lot of frying pans and pots." What does this sentence mean? The stove top burners are all in good working order./ If she uses the bigger ones on regular basis how she could put on a small frying pan on it?

The top rings (hob) on the stove (cooker) are working.
I use the big rings regularly because I use a number of saucepans at a time.
(If a person tended to cook using only one saucepan, they would probably only use one ring regularly.)

Many, many thanks Bez. I have to say that I use the rings separately because I use different pots. Very rarely I use the big rings , never regularly, also when I have to cook for more than two persons.
Thanks:
