just got a control freak and found this thread. thanks for all the info!
so far, i'm really enjoying the CF. i made eggs benedict today, and the sauce was a snap.
does anyone have any specific info on the various probe control modes?
like specifically how do the probe control and probe control oil algorithms differ?
i agree that multi-step recipe functionality would be a huge bonus. i'm a little disappointed that the recipes are so limited.
also, support has so far been pretty useless for firmware updates. there's nothing wrong with my CF, but of course i'd like to run the latest firmware just in case.
using the support form at PSC was a bust. i messaged them twice so far with no response. it's been several business days, but the form says they strive to respond in 24h.
i also called PSC's support line (1-844-765-9724 M-F 6am to 5pm PST), but apparently it routes you to breville. the person i talked to wasn't aware that the CF's firmware is user-upgradeable and insisted that the only way to update the software was to send it in for service 😅
but thanks to this thread, i found a couple more options to try. i just emailed David.Pietranczyk@polyscienceculinary.com, and tomorrow, i'll try breville's online support chat thing.
i post my findings when i learn more.
btw, here's my about screen:
i bought it on amazon from a 3rd party seller for 1446usd including tax and shipping.
not the best deal in the world, but i think i could've done slightly worse.
has anyone in the US bought from TesTek in canada? i see it's 1500cad (~1135usd), but i wonder what the grand total comes to after shipping and import duty.
their site doesn't give you an on-the-spot shipping quote sadly.
