Spanish term or phrase: cocina 2 H.
Could someone tell me what is meant by the expression "cocina 2 H."? This is from a text from Peru. It lists a variety of commodities such as food and clothing items with prices, and then the "cocina 2 H." The target text is US English.

En el Ecuador (y supongo que también en Perú) es muy común hablar de cocinas de 2 hornillas, generalmente son de gas. Si son de gas sería "burner" y si son cocinas eléctricas se diría "ring".
