The Control Freak

The Control Freak is an induction cooker/burner that, as clearly stated in its name, will get you in full control of the temperature you want to cook your food, to the precise degree. Full control from 86º to 482º, this temperature may be measured at the base of the pot/pan, or using a provided probe that you simply put inside of the pan, should you need more accuracy and control. It´s very well built and quite sturdy, designed for those who take cooking seriously and wish to minimize chance or luck to come between them and their cooking. As with all induction cookers you get high temperatures quite quickly and control is much more accurate than conventional gas or electric ovens. This product was made with a collaboration between Breville and Poly Science, it also features memory storage functions so you can store temperature programs you may use more often.
