Nuwave PIC 2 – Precision Induction Cooktop Features
The first thing to note about this 1300 watt portable induction cooktop is that it provides a large 9 inch diameter surface on which to rest larger induction ready pots and pans. Even though there is a large footprint on which to place pots it should be noted that only the middle 5 inches will transfer cooing heat to the pan.
Although not in the 1800 watt range this entry level induction unit will perform most basic cooking tasks with ease. On the look and feel side it is still a lightweight unit at only 7 pounds in weight.
In terms of looks the manufacturers designed the product as cylindrical to sit as a table center-piece. This makes it stand out a little from the more rectangular units on offer.
The NuWave PIC2 is smart – with state-of-the art programming functions and one hundred hours of memory, you can pre-program all your favorite recipe timings and temperature settings with consummate ease.
The Nuwave PIC2 provides you with a great range of cooking options, whether you want to melt, boil, simmer, deep-fry, stir-fry, slow cook, pressure cook or grill the PIC2 delivers every time.
As you would also expect with induction technology, the PIC2 comes with excellent temperature control. Temperature can be changed in small 10 degree steps and the temperature range allows for heating between 100°F and an upper limit of 575°F. There is also 6 preset temperature settings allowing you to quickly get to your desired recipe temperature.
