Sloppy knobs on CC

PeterH2February 14, 2013

One of the factors that has us looking at induction again is the precise, repeatable control you get compared to "eyeballing" a gas flame. I twiddle the knobs on a CC rangetop yesterday, and noticed something I had missed previously - there is a ton of "backlash"/free play in the knobs. By that, I mean that you can turn the knobs to-and-fro about 30 degrees without changing the setting of the burner at all. Obviously that makes using the little scales on the knobs as a guide to settings nearly impossible. It also means that making fine adjustments is likely to be fiddly.

Questions for those of you who have the CC:

- Do you see the same thing?

- How much does it bother you?

If any BS owners have wandered in here, I'm curious how the BS compares in this respect.

It was like that before the Capital tech adjusted the burners but now there is a much more direct relationship between turning the knob and the flame growing or diminishing.

I have fantastic control on my BS but after 5 years I just look at the flame and never look at the indicators on the knob anymore. But, suffice it to say, it's a very, very responsive flame.
