New Toy: Breville/Polyscience Control Freak!

Recommended Posts

I just head out to a thrift store with a magnet in my purse and find a few pots that will work on induction. Watch for the magnetic ones with bottoms that aren't flat though - won't work.

Smaller pots might overshoot. Happens to my tiny 1 quart. Might happen to thinner pots too. 

 

My 7ply barely overshoot, even on high.

I have one little pot - it's an all clad saucier - half the time it's not recognized - other half it is.

Avoid calphalon then. Distinct lack of flatness in sauté pans.

A question to the pros here - do you know what the firmware update status for European units is?

Also, what features are actually enabled by the firmware updates (=how hard should I try to get updates for my unit)?

 

Thanks!

Mine is running 5.27.  I checked with David at Polyscience at the beginning of the year and there weren't any updates.

 

if you really want to try.  Speak to https://www.sousvidetools.com/ who are the Master Distributor for the UK and most of Europe.

Temperature Guide

 

Just wanted to post this handy temperature guide from the Support tab of the PolyScience Control Freak site. According to the guide, for garlic (I assume onions are similar), sweating is at 230F, browning occurs for temperatures greater than 248F.
