Cooking Modes Overview The Tasty One Top has three cooking modes, allowing almost any type of cooking. Direct input (Tasty app optional) In Direct mode, the One Top acts like a standard induction burner, allowing you to do things like boil, sear, and sauté all of your favorite dishes, selecting from power levels 1-10. You can use Direct mode with or without the Tasty app. You do not use the temperature probe in this mode. Note: For more information on Direct mode, visit How do I cook in Direct Mode? Sous-Vide (Tasty app and temperature probe required) In sous-vide mode, the One Top works with the Tasty app to precisely control the temperature of your food when using the temperature probe in liquids, meats, and fish. The power level automatically varies to maintain your desired temperature, ensuring you never overcook food. Use this mode for sous vide, poaching, or slow cooking.
