my wolf induction experience
Thought i posted this last week but can't find it, so excuse if it is a repeat.
FIrst, I love induction cooking- the burners go from 0 to fry in 15 seconds. I have had 2 serious problems though. After a year my cooktop had a meltdown- giant flash and big boom. Wolf was good about replacing it though.
MOre serious is problem with cooking on high. After cooking at high heat for a couple of minutes, the unit will turn itself off, even though the indicator light stays on high. So, you don't know that your scallops have gone from quick sautÃÂ© to low boil until you see that they have stopped cooking. Ruined several dishes that way.
I emailed Wolf. They first responded that this shouldn't be happening, I should call a serviceman.
Then they emailed to say that this was in fact normal, there is an overheat protection circuit that switches the burner off at a certain temperature. This would be an OK feature if the indicator light went off at the same time, but it doesn't.
Before buying another induction cooktop I would check out other brands to see if they have the same issue.
