Sloppy knobs on CC
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.
