Is this type of sentence seen on GMAT? - I opened a can of corned-beef hash and patted it into a disposable dish and set it on an asbestos pad over a low flame, to heat very slowly. Which type is it categorized under? Does 'to heat very slowly' modify all the three parallel verbs collectively.

As much as I adore Steinbeck, I wouldn't worry about seeing a lot of the grammar structures that he uses on the GMAT itself. Like many authors, he knows the rules well enough to know how to bend them in order to create an effective sentence. That's great for readers, but it also means that not every sentence is going to be the sort of question you'll want to emulate in your everyday writing.

On this particular sentence, yes, it does look like he's saying that he does all of these actions to facilitate the heating of the corned beef hash.
