Very impressive, works great!
Comments about GE Precision Cooking Probe:
I bought this for my GE Cafe induction cooktop. You need to update the software on the cooktop before using this, and they don't include a cable for that. But that aside, once I figured out how to do the update, it was smooth sailing. There's a communication module which plugs in to the underside of the cooktop, and it communicates via bluetooth to the temperature probe. The probe is magnetic, and super easy to just clip on to the side of the pot, so that the metal part sits in the water. This works on the larger hob. You hold down on the on/off button on the burner for 3 seconds, and it turns on and activates the timer, which now turns into a temperature display. You set the desired temperature. The led lights turn on for the burner, and slowly turn off one by one when it reaches the temperature, and makes a little chime sound to let you know when it actually is at the temperature. I tested the water temp after an hour just to check, and just as promised, it was within 1 degree. I set the temp to 129 degrees for rare, and cooked a steak for 2 hours in the water bath, in a vacuum sealed bag. The steak was about 2" thick. Once I pulled the meat out, I seared it in a grill pan on the cooktop. Perhaps for 3-4 minutes total. The best steak I have ever made, and quite possibly the best I've ever tasted. I would say that this works very accurately, and, unlike an electric sous vide accessory which has a circulator, this one heats the pot from the outside in. No need to circulate the water for a proper temp. It does come with a usb cable to charge the probe itself. Here are pics of the steak I cooked. I would definitely recommend this accessory.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

only works on largest hob
I bought this to pair with my 30" Cafe Induction cooktop (CHP9530SJSS). The sensor itself is elegant and well designed, but not without deficiencies. My biggest complaint is that it only works with the 11" hob. (this is clearly stated in the product manual that it ships with, but absent from any sales information available before you buy it). So in my case, my smallest pot that works well on the is 8qt--so I can't really precision cook less than ~4qt of something. Making candy is an advertised use, but I can't imagine making that much candy. Another nit is that it displays your set temperature, but there is no way to display the current temperature. It would be nice if there were a way to toggle between the two.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
