Culinarian survey at 24 hours
24 or so hours after putting up a survey of people's experience with the Culinarian's simmer, 20 folks have responded.
14 of those responded before the question was posed to clarify whether natural gas or propane was being used. Of the 6 who answered regarding the type of fuel, there was an even split between natural gas and propane.
5 people, or 25% of the respondents reported satisfaction with the Culinarian's simmer.
Only 3 of these answered after the fuel question was added. 2 were using natural gas, 1 was using propane.
Of the 15 respondents who were not satisfied with the Culinarian's ability to simmer, all agreed the burner temperature was too hot. 7 noted additionally they had a problem with the burners clicking. 4 noted the burner seems too large on simmer still, and one noted offsetting the pan to assist their simmer and another that the simmer was uneven.
There were several succinct explanations of their experience left by people and I will pass those along to Capital. I forgot to explicitly ask permission for this. If you wrote something on the survey and do not want it relayed to Capital, please contact me offlist.
There were several email addresses left that I did not recognize from GW though I made no close study of this. It's possible some used this more anonymous forum for expressing their troubles.
Please feel free to continue completing the survey; I'll update results periodically.
If you know of Culinarian owners not actively posting any longer but who you think might be impelled to complete the survey (regardless of simmering experience), it would be terrific if you'd consider contacting them offlist and urge their participation.
