Westinghouse 2400W Electric Portable/Twin/Dual Induction Cooktop w/ LED Display–the error codes

Also known as the WHIC02K.

WHIC02K

Been very happy with it.

I like induction cooktops as they are more child-safe.

Of course, you need to still watch children around the children, to prevent things like hot saucepans being tipped over.

And you do need induction compatible cookware, which could be a downside if you don’t have it.

The instruction manual has a very handy error code table, which I’ll copy out here in case I need to find it quickly….

Error Code Reason Solution
Waiting status Place a suitable pot/pan onto the Effective Induction perimeter ring
E0 Pot is too small Use larger size pot or pan
E2 Short circuit Device requires repair
E2 Open circuit Device requires repair
E3 A/C Voltage too high or low Connect the device to a correct voltage power outlet
E4 A/C Voltage too high or low Connect the device to a correct voltage power outlet
E5 Ceramic plate overheated Allow the device to cool down. Turn off at the A/C outlet and then turn on again
E6 Circuit board overheated Allow the device to cool down. Turn off at the A/C outlet and then turn on again

So you like hot chillies?

Mad Dog Sauce We had a chilli sauce tasting at work.

In the left corner, Mad Dog’s 357 Hot Sauce, and the right corner, Pete’s homemade chilli sauce.

We’ll get onto who won in a moment.

Now I love hot chilli sauce.  And with 357,000 Scoville heat units, Mad Dog’s 357 packs a mouth burning, tear inducing wallop.  This is a sauce which you use with care.  This is a sauce that the manufacturer has written a disclaimer for.  In short, it’s nasty stuff.

In the right corner, Pete’s homemade chilli sauce.  A sauce which you can use as a sauce, and still get some kick.  Not enough kick to make you cry though.  The lack of habanero peppers probably explains that.  It has cayenne peppers instead.  It’s about half as hot as the Mad Dog 357, and that makes it my winner.

I thought there was no hot sauce I could not stand.  The Mad Dog 357 Sauce proved me wrong.

Pete’s homemade chilli sauce follows below the “read more”.
