The Control °Freak® induction cooking system is the first of its kind to accurately measure, set and hold 397 cooking temperatures from 86°-482°F. The unique real-time sensing system uses a through-glass sensor to directly measure surface temperature. Probe Control™ remote thermometer to precisely control the temperature of both water and fat-based liquids. The Intensity function gives incredible control over the heat up speed to the set temperature. A Create function stores frequently used custom temperature profiles for simple one-touch recall.
Creating programs with the Control °Freak is quick, easy, and allows you to standardize the cooking method of a given recipe. Within the "Create" function, chefs can store a recipe temperature, heat up speed, and timer options. Imagine being able to cook perfect French omelettes one after the other with zero loss. Simply set a program for 208°F, Fast Intensity, and a Timer to Repeat after 2 minutes. Your breakfast service has never been simpler.
Not only does the Control °Freak allow you to reach and hold specific temperatures, it allows you to control how quickly you reach that temperature. Imagine being able to temper chocolate directly in a pan on the cooktop with no double boiler! Simply set the Control °Freak to your desired melting temperature and switch the Intensity to low. The chocolate will melt without scorching, with zero stirring.
Recipe methods are a complex combination of what happens to the ingredients before and after they reach a specific temperature for a given time. The Control °Freak's Timer function allows you to decide when a time should start and what happens after the timer ends. Imagine that your lamb shanks braise slowly for 8 hours at 177°F. When time is up, the temperature drops to 140°F to hold them warm for dinner service.
The large control knob on the front of the unit works just like an ordinary stove. Simply turn it up and down to adjust the heat. Once the desired pan temperature is reached, it will hold indefinitely. Depending on the pan being used, the unit may overshoot at first. Don't worry, the cooktop will cool and then maintain your desired temperature.
Probe Control™ allows you to control the unit based on the temperature of the food in your pan/pot! Just like sous vide cooking, the food will only reach the temperature that you set it to. If you are deep frying, choose Probe Control™ Oil. Oil heats very differently than water.
