The NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop (PIC) offers precise temperature control, adjustable in 10-degree increments. With a minimum temperature setting of 100 Fahrenheit and an upper limit of 575 Fahrenheit (Sear), the PIC offers a wider temperature range than competitor models. This permits the appliance to act as more than just a cooktop. The NuWave PIC does the thinking for you. It offers state-of-the art programming technology with 100 hours of memory that allow you to prepare complex recipes with ease.. A delay function allows you to initiate cooking when it's most convenient for you, including an automatic shutoff function when cooking time is completed. The NuWave PIC was engineered with a circular design scheme, doing away with excess space that serves no cooking function. The PIC's round design also echoes the traditional feel of an intimate gathering place like the kitchen or dining room table. Mealtime is about community and the PIC was designed with that idea in mind. Despite its portability and compact size, the NuWave PIC offers a large cooking area, measuring 9 inches in diameter. In this case, bigger is better, with the PIC allowing for greater diversity in cooking vessels and portion sizes. The product also comes with unrivaled customer support and value-added resources such as lifetime membership to the online Precision Cooking Club. This invaluable tool features recipes, tips and tricks from the NuWave Culinary Team, designed to help you make the most of the PIC cooking experience. Pan is not included

I contacted NuWave and was told that their 1 year warranty only covers devices purchased either directly through them or their 1 authorized re-seller (who does not sell through Amazon). In other words, a $70 device that was purchased new less than 3 months ago is now a door stop because I didn't buy it from NuWave. It does have a vague statement about this in the owner's manual but you can't read that until after you've already purchased it. Their website has some information on the warranty being 1 year but does not say anything about distribution.
E-mail from a helpful employee:
Also, in order for us to be able to replace the PIC we will need the proof of purchase that shows the Amazon authorize seller information and date the order was placed. Please keep in mind that our authorize seller is Whole sales stock room and NuWave, LLC. We will only be able to replace if the seller is one of these two.
Which is a polite way of saying no. From all of the other reviews I've read this seems to be a very rare issue, but if you have an issue and you didn't buy it form NuWave then it's your issue.
TL;DR: Worked great for 2 months then randomly started turning off induction without notice or warning. Manufacturer won't repair/replace because I bought it from Amazon. Buyer beware.
It appears to be of good quality. The control are easy to use. The feature that may prove the most useful is the ability to accurately control the temperature with the digital readout.
The claims of boiling water quickly are exaggerated. I used a measured amount (3 cups) of cold tap water in the same induction rated pan and brought it to a rolling boil on both an electric range and on the Nuwave2 PIC.
It took 6 minutes 30 seconds on the electric range on High
It took 4 minutes 50 seconds on the Nuwave2 PIC on High (425°)
It took 4 minutes 24 seconds on the Nuwave2 PIC on Max/Sear (575°)
The Nuwave2 PIC has a warning on it's top surface "COOKING SURFACE CAN REMAIN HOT EVEN AFTER COOKING"
One thing that I forgot to consider was where I was going to place it when using it. It won't fit on the top of my electric range where it would be under the vent hood. If placed anywhere else in the kitchen any smoke or grease would not vent properly.
Update: I love this cooktop. I just increased my rating from 4 to 5 stars.
When I make hard boiled eggs I start heating the water on Max/Sear and when it comes to a rolling boil I reduce the temp setting to Med (275°) and it maintains a rolling boil. If I use the minus botton to reduce the temp to 270° it immediately comes off the rolling boil. Uping the temp back to 275° it immediately comes back to the rolling boil. Fantastic temperature control.
As with the older units the pan goes into an error code and beep when a pan is lifted. On this new one, you have to hit the start button every time to get it going again. This is a pain when flipping things. Flip and stir, push the start button. Flip an egg, and push the start button. I am going to request a return and see if there is another brand without this baloney.
Note, you cannot get parts for an old one either. The touch pad wore out on both of my old ones and they just wanted to sell me a new unit.
I love my induction cooking and will not be without one or two.
