- only works on largest hob- February 12, 2016
I bought this to pair with my 30" Cafe Induction cooktop (CHP9530SJSS). The sensor itself is elegant and well designed, but not without deficiencies. My biggest complaint is that it only works with the 11" hob. (this is clearly stated in the product manual that it ships with, but absent from any sales information available before you buy it). So in my case, my smallest pot that works well on the is 8qt--so I can't really precision cook less than ~4qt of something. Making candy is an advertised use, but I can't imagine making that much candy. Another nit is that it displays your set temperature, but there is no way to display the current temperature. It would be nice if there were a way to toggle between the two.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- 200 degree limit!- October 27, 2018
Having purchased the Cafe cooktop as a top end appliance for our new house a year ago, we have been both pleased and disappointed. The cooktop Blu-Ray temperature probe was a great disappointment. Being limited to 200 degrees makes it worthless for many projects, esp. candy making. In addition to it being limited, there are no alternatives that tie into all of the built-in features. This disappointment followed the realization that we had to replace all of our cookware that would not work on the induction cooktop.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Works great for Sous Vide as intended- May 26, 2020
Since this is a Sous Vide device and not a thermometer for all cooking it is worthy of the stars. It would be incredible if it could be used for all cooking (candy making, deep frying etc) I am not sure why the limited temperature range. It was seemless to connect to my GE Cafe range via bluetooth. The biggest fault of this device is the battery does not last as long as advertised. Twice now I have tried to do a 24 hour sous vide and have had to charge it during the process which means I now manually have to monitor the temp of the water while it charges. It does not appear that you can charge it while its cooking. And why no battery indicator light?? It has an LED display - put it to use. Or, since you can use the app to control the device add an alarm in there. I was fortunate to have caught it just as it was shutting off, if it had happened in the middle of the night my dinner would have been ruined. However, it has kept the water temp at what I had set it to and it is awesome to have this feature with my range. I hope more accessories come out similar to this.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
