I made some queso dip yesterday and kept it on low after I melted the cheese. I ended up just keeping the bag of chips next to the burner cause I was constantly thru the nite going over and dipping. I almost moved it into the living room. I set it to shut off at 4 hours in case I forgot about it which I did. It can be set to go off after 99 hours (though why would anyone keep something on the stove for that long), but it sure will come in handy for keeping food warm for parties.

Nat, I'll check & see if any of the shopping channels ship to Canada. Now is about the time that they will start selling these again on sale.. I'll let y'all know if I see one on special.

Hsn.com has the Nuwave Pro with carrying case in red or black for 89.95 (item 408-115) with free shipping. That's $10.00 cheaper than what I paid for mine exactly a year ago.

I love the carrying case as I plan to put it away when we're moving and its padded to save the burner from damage and I can hang it somewhere safe if I choose to.

But...I don't know if they ship to Canada.

Also, this is the time of the year that if you apply for their credit card this month you will get a $20 gift card you can use right away. So you could possibly get one for $69.99 right now.

It appears to be the best deal I've seen on the Pro so far. Amazon also has one but its a little more but they will ship to Canada.

I don't know what the difference is between the previous (1300 W) and the Pro except the wattage goes higher and you can change 5 degrees vs 10 on the old version.

Its very possible that they will come up with a cheaper price since it's considered Christmas time for them. With that you can also use it till January 31, 2016 and if you don't like it send it back no questions asked.

I found the PIC Pro on Amazon for $2 less than the HSN price, and it qualifies for free shipping. Amazon also lists a Titanium PIC and the item description says this is a replacement for the PIC Pro:
Quote:
This unit replaces the PIC PRO with a new name and a sleeker look with a few engineering updates
I have no idea what "engineering updates" could warrant the much higher price tag ($138 vs $88 for the PIC Pro), but it's probably better to get the PIC Pro for less.

I'm doing pretty darned well, actually.

My left elbow is scheduled for surgery on December 21st, so I should get back most of the range of motion on that arm in the following weeks. That's a good date for me and the recovery from the same procedure on the right elbow wasn't too bad, so I doubt my holidays will be too adversely affected. At least it won't effect a short trip to Miami I have planned for the second week of December.

After that elbow is mostly back to normal (and let's be clear, I'll never be back to completely normal use of these joints, but it'll be better than it has been for the past year or so), then we'll start scheduling more procedures for the similarly affected finger joints on both hands.

I think most of you (the guys, I mean) will be happy to hear I have at least two photo shoots already planned for my Miami trip, with two models I've worked with in the past. Dailyn is one, and probably Yendri is another. I expect good things. I'm going to try to coordinate with some new models, as well.

Glad to hear that you're doing well. Miami looks to be a very nice trip, I'm sure you'll be enjoying that!

I was saddened to hear about your accident and am glad to hear you are doing well with your recovery. I am embarrassed to say that I didn't know. I wasn't following the thread that closely. Did you track down the cause of the problem?

I will weigh in on induction cooktops. I use one everyday almost exclusively. I use it with my Lodge skillets. I stopped using my ancient cast iron because it is thinner and the heat would warp the bottoms. I also have specific pots that I use for the cooktop. I don't have a gas range and I hate electric ranges even though I use the oven. I paid about $50 for my first one that finally cracked after several years of constant use several times a day. The next one cost me about $65. I've had it for over a year now. The main problem with the two that I have bought is the steps in temp are very wide. The next one I will buy will be more expensive and have better temp control and a larger cooking circle(not sure if that is what it's called). I am a convert and wouldn't hesitate to spend more money for a better unit now that I have had several years of use. My advice to unbelievers would be to buy an inexpensive unit and try it out to see if fits your needs.

I did hook up my first one to a Kill-A-Watt see see if it used the rated wattage. It was 1500 watts but I never use it that high unless I am searing something. I haven't tried to use it through an inverter yet.
