Very useful feature

Submitted: 03-14-2020

As an avid sous-vider for the last 10 years or so, having that capability on one of the burners of my 36" Monogram cooktop was a huge factor in my decision to purchase. I've previously used the Anova Culinary Sous Vide cooker with great results. There is a bit of a learning curve to using this apparatus - it takes a while to figure out how long to hold down the button on the probe, and how long to hold down the burner on/off switch. Soon you learn to listen for the unique tone that means the two are communicating. You of course must use an induction compatible pot for your cooking. At first I didn't quite trust it's ability to hold the temperature precisely, but after checking multiple times over multiple temps and dishes with my theraworks thermometer, I can say that it does consistently hold the temp within a degree or two, which is close enough for my needs. Pretty amazing that it can hold temp without a water circulator. Props to GE on figuring this out. The magnetic clip on probe is very simple to use on any pot and super easy to clean - a big plus. My only knock on this system is that you cannot set a timer to turn it off after a set amount of time - and I assume the low battery indicator only shows when it's almost out of power - a battery level indicator that shows 90%, 75%, etc.... would be helpful. Also on my wish list is that it could somehow circulate the water bath. Hence the 4 stars rather than 5.

Very impressive, works great!

I bought this for my GE Cafe induction cooktop. You need to update the software on the cooktop before using this, and they don't include a cable for that. But that aside, once I figured out how to do the update, it was smooth sailing. There's a communication module which plugs in to the underside of the cooktop, and it communicates via bluetooth to the temperature probe. The probe is magnetic, and super easy to just clip on to the side of the pot, so that the metal part sits in the water. This works on the larger hob. You hold down on the on/off button on the burner for 3 seconds, and it turns on and activates the timer, which now turns into a temperature display. You set the desired temperature. The led lights turn on for the burner, and slowly turn off one by one when it reaches the temperature, and makes a little chime sound to let you know when it actually is at the temperature. I tested the water temp after an hour just to check, and just as promised, it was within 1 degree. I set the temp to 129 degrees for rare, and cooked a steak for 2 hours in the water bath, in a vacuum sealed bag. The steak was about 2" thick. Once I pulled the meat out, I seared it in a grill pan on the cooktop. Perhaps for 3-4 minutes total. The best steak I have ever made, and quite possibly the best I've ever tasted. I would say that this works very accurately, and, unlike an electric sous vide accessory which has a circulator, this one heats the pot from the outside in. No need to circulate the water for a proper temp. It does come with a usb cable to charge the probe itself. Here are pics of the steak I cooked. I would definitely recommend this accessory.
