  1. Thanks...I think this is probably the truth. I've seen multiple YouTube videos where it was being used on a variety of induction cooktops. I like the unit. I'm ordering it, and will try it on my CF. If it doesn't work, I'll get an inexpensive electric cooktop just for this. Thanks
  2. Thanks everyone for you input! It was very helpful.
  3. This looks nice. I'm looking for something that will make smooth and creamy. I'm not interested in latte art...but I'm looking for that consistency. Is this unit capable of that texture...very little froth?
  4. I've read varying reviews on this. Some good...some not so good. I'm a Breville fan. Joule Oven, Smooth Wave Microwave, 2x Joule stainless sous vide circulators, AND the Control Freak. Some of the reviewers mentioned that the Milk Cafe wasn't very sturdy. That was one of the things I liked about the Bellman. Super durable, simple design. Something to last a lifetime. Do you like your Milk Cafe? Regards
  5. I don't have an espresso machine. I use frothed milk to make matcha latte's. I looked at the Breville and several others. I've been warming my milk in a pan on the CF. I liked the milk frother I linked because it was the only stand-alone I could find that had a steam wand like an espresso machine. The steam wand REALLY makes a difference in the texture (and taste in my opinion) of the froth. Do you have any knowledge of a highly rated induction adapter plate? There seems to be no firm 'this is the best' reviews out there. Just a lot of conflicting opinions. This post always has great info, so I decided to give it a try! Thanks.
  6. Hi...there is a stainless milk frother I want to use. The Bellman Stovetop Steamer @ https://prima-coffee.com/equipment/bellman/50ss It's not induction compatible according to the retailer. I'm in a small basement apartment and only have my Control Freak. Can I safely use an induction adapter plate on my CF? If so, which is the best/most highly recommended? Thanks
  7. @horseflesh I love my Control Freak. I'm a single man. I cook for myself. There are still many times when I wish for at least another burner. It would be nice to have 3 burners. If I were replacing an entire cooktop, I might consider the Thermador. https://www.thermador.com/us/search?search=freedom+induction+cooktop&f_categories_ma=cooktopsandrangetops/cooktopsandrangetopsinduction
  8. Yes...that’s a given. But there are break even numbers that must be met. And profit goals that must also be met. Instantpot-ish or not, it does have to meet certain goals.
  9. I hope this doesn’t mean Control Freak sales are hurting, and if they don’t pick up with this trial, it will become a discontinued product...
  10. That's what I was just going to ask! LOL. The ENTIRE reason I spent the money on the 'Freak' was precise temperature control. I'm a mediocre cook at best when I have to judge temperatures. When I can cook something a few times, and zero in on the exact temp and time my food actually turns out so that my picky family will eat it!! LOL
  11. Thanks. I will return my 3 Misen pans of the same size if I can find that set! The 12" doesn't wobble empty, and the 10" doesn't wobble with a single egg. The 8" requires a reasonable amount of weight. I purchased it as an egg pan for 1-2 eggs. It still wobbles considerably with a few eggs in it.
  12. I ended up trying some gel toothpaste and a soft bristled toothbrush. It came right up.
  13. What’s the smallest diameter fryer from Nouvelle have you used without tipping issues? With just a few eggs in it perhaps.
  14. LOL!! I literally just got them in the mail today. They are Misen 8, 10, & 12” non-stick.
  15. Thank you. Any suggestions about my smaller (8" & 10") non-stick egg pans tipping up due to the temperature sensor with just a few eggs in them? They aren't cheapie pans. They have some weight to them.
