Roller Coaster Heating
October 24, 2014
Performance leaves a lot to be desired. The entire surface heats well. However the heating element cycles on and off and does not maintain the desired heat level. The heating element is either ON or OFF; not consistent. Frying bacon is great when the heating element is heating. Then then it cycles off until it reheats. Literally the bacon stops frying during the off cycle and is just sitting there until the unit cycles on again. When it does cycle on again the heating element is at full bore until the unit is reheated to temperature.
Don't even try to do something like chicken and dumplings. Want to cook at a low consistent temperature? It will not maintain a slow simmer. When the heating until cycles back on everything comes up to a full boil. Imagine what this does to dumplings? During the off cycle everything just stops. Heat is literally like riding a roller coaster.
Needless to say, I'm disappointing in this unit and now it just sits in a cupboard taking up space.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Design
Cons: Speed, Power, Temperamental, inconsistent heating
