Why does my One Top not reach its goal temperature? Matthew M. March 20, 2018 19:16 Updated In step-by-step recipes the One Top will limit the power it distributes as it gets closer to the goal temperature. This is to ensure the cooktop does not overshoot the goal temperature the recipe requires. This "throttling" of power, causes the temperature increase to drastically slow down as it gets close to the target temperature. The ability to skip to the next step in the recipe will not display until you are in an acceptable temperature range for the recipe, which is normally within 5 degrees of the target temperature. The food will not be impacted by advancing at this point.
