Yep! Sturdier construction, as well. Usually the "rack" raises up and down, as well as slides in and out. It has a pivoting lock mechanism to keep it from falling to the bottom setting while you're broiling.

You shouldn't have to worry about fire when broiling. You might get an occasional poof of flame when the product spits directly on the heat source, but it shouldn't actually be any sort of a fire hazard.

I broil often with many different meats and fish, and quite often I will lightly paint the cuts with oil (olive or vegetable, depending on what I think works best ).... It both helps the food retain moisture and cook better, but it also helps to hold the herbs and seasonings on the meat while it's cooking. I've never had any sort of fire, even when accidentally overcooking something.

I'm in an apartment that has an old-style gas stove (Magee).

The oven has two burners. The one under it is for the oven itself. The one at the top of the oven is for the broiler. So the oven is also the broiler.

Plus there's another gas burner on the side for heat in the winter.

simple and cheap

When the broiler element is on the bottom not the top you cannot store stuff in that drawer under the oven because that is where you broil the food. You also have to be more vigilant because the food is quite close to the flame and food can burn if you do not keep a close eye on it. You cannot find a top broiler that does not have a computerized panel control for the oven. These computer panels make stoves more expensive, are awkward to use and they frequently break and when they do it is expensive to replace. I cook and bake every day and this is the best stove I have ever used and it is cheap!...not beautiful, just practical!

You're very lucky to have gas stove with broiler. They actually work. I hate all my electric stoves they don't broil at all. Enjoy it!
