Understanding new Sensi-Temp range coils
4 Comments


In this video, we’ll discuss how using
the correct cookware can improve the performance of your sensi-temp coil
elements. Our sensi-temp coil element senses the cooking temperature on your range, keeps that temperature within a safe range, and reduces the risk of cooktop oil and grease fires. It was designed to meet the UL safety standard that was set in 2018. Standard coil elements cannot offer the same safety features that sensi-temp coils provide. Each surface unit with this sensi temp
technology has a silver medallion with a button in the center of the coil. This button must contact the bottom of the cookware for the coil to work properly. Power to the surface unit will be interrupted when the sensi temp coil detects an unsafe pan temperature. The element will then begin cycling power
off and on to maintain a safe cooking temperature. The time at which the cycling begins and the duration of the on and off cycling may vary from seconds to minutes, depending on the cookware and the food being heated. The cookware used plays a significant role in the coil’s performance. Pots and pans with a flat surface on the entire bottom of the cookware will make solid contact with the coil and improve performance. Using cookware with uneven, recessed, or grooved bottom surfaces will impair performance. Make sure the cookware is flat. With a
ruler pressed against the bottom of your cookware, you should not be able to pass
a nickel between the ruler and the bottom of the cookware. Match the bottom diameter of the cookware to the size of the coil. Do not use small diameter cookware on a large diameter coil element. Ensure the cookware is evenly weighted. If the cookware is too light or the amount of food being cooked is not enough to weigh down the cookware, the sensor on the
center of the coil will not work properly. For cooking light food or foods
without much water content, it’s recommended to use heavier cookware and
reduce power to the surface unit to achieve optimal performance. For more information about our products such as the sensi temp element, visit GEAappliances.com and be sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel for the latest updates, recipes, and more.

  1. I replaced my elements with old school type, no more problems so far seems to operate normally. I am not responsible for anything that your may do to your stove, and I am NOT telling anyone else to do this!⚠️ Warning, you will be able to boil water again, for spaghetti, make stir fry, fry a hamburger, boil a hot dog, and cook like you did before with your previous stove⚠️ Use all precautionary measures if you decide to go back to regular elements⚠️

  2. My family moved in to our apartment and about 3 weeks ago and last week "TRIED" to fry chicken. This sensi temp tech sucks. My chicken started out frying great but then it went downhill. I thought I was doing something wrong. My chicken was not fried with a crispy crust it had a soft crust and just disappointing. My son called himself going to fry chicken about 2 days ago he was so disappointed with how his chicken turned out that he was literally heart broken. I guess we're gonna have to buy a deep fryer.

  3. Took me like 2:30 minutes to fry 40 pieces of bacon. I can fry more pieces of bacon on the hood of my car when it's 90 degrees outside in less time. The dumbest stove ever.
