One of the reasons that I purchased this unit was that it had a relitively fine control of temperature. There are a couple things that you need to understand when using the temperature control feature (I think these comments would be applicable to all induction units). First off, the unit monitors temperature with a sensor about in the middle of the unit. It actually is measuring the temperature of the glass top. So, it is not unusual for the unit to initially overshoot the desired temperature. The pan hits the right temperature, but the conduction to the glass hasn't warmed it yet, so the burner continues to feed heat to the pan. Eventually everything comes to temp and the unit will then hold the temp as expected.
Because the temperature sensor depends on conduction to heat the glass, you need pans that contact the glass. I have pans that have warped bottoms (chalk it up to having kids) that heat fine on this unit, but the temperature settings are not reliable. So, pans with warped bottoms or thin wall enamalled steel pans in which the middle is slightly higher than the bottom edge of pan seem to work fine but won't be regulated properly with the temperature setting. Note that there are some cast iron fry pans that have a rib on their bottom which could also cause problems with temperature accuracy.
A second aspect of induction burners is that they expect the pots to be left on the burner. Lifting the pan to shake the contents will result in the burner shutting off. It will turn back on once the pan is replaced, but might take five seconds or more to register the return of the pan.
One trick that I've used is to put a piece of paper over the burner.Read more ›
If you just want to try induction, the cheap (under $100) burners do very well. I've used Chinese made models (Max Burton, Sunpentown) that sell for $60 that were just fine. A good mid-range is the Winco with dial control for about $150 (available from restaurant supply houses). Any induction burner will give you the super-fast response and some degree of temp control.
If you are ready to spend serious money, here are four key features of the Vollrath that, to me, make it worth the money.
1) Fan is very quiet, almost silent, compared with most burners which are usually quite loud. (to me that justifies the price right there)
2) Temperature control is probably the best of any model available. (though there are some caveats people should be aware of which I'll discuss briefly).
3) Build quality is outstanding. This burner is meant to get pounded in commercial food service use, so it should last a very long time in home use. Vollrath is also a very reputable American manufacturer and they support what they make.
4) Maybe because it's an industrial model, there is no time limit on this one. Most induction burners will automatically shut off at 2 or 3 hours which is not helpful if you're at work. The Vollrath will not shut off except if it overheats, so you can use it like a crock pot (and it's SO much better than a crock pot, which tends to cook at too high a temperature).
Now a brief discussion of temp control and I can address one of the negative reviews.Read more ›
