Well, in reading more reviews, including reviews on the newer Nuwave 2, it appears the thermostat they use is only accurate when using the *free* cookware they offer. So I guess if today's technology can't make an accurate thermostat for a cooking surface unless you use a specific pot or pan, then forty years ago it wasn't any better. I remember my mother saying that the brain did not work on that stove, so maybe it wasn't accurate enough for her or something.
