I am having excellent results with your PID Thermostat Temperature Controller.
See picture enclosed using a conventional slow cooker as a sous-vide.
I have a question: is it possible to program Phase 1 to achieve a target temperature at which temperature it will auto-switch to Phase 2.
In this way I could guarantee that the cooking in Phase 2 at the set temperature would continue for the set time, regardless of how long it took to achieve that temperature in Phase 1.
The reason is that the slow cooker takes a long time to reach temperature.
Your device is very good but this would make it even better.

Comments by the developer and seller, the woodpelletsmoker:
There is NO such problem mentioned above, please do not worry.
The thermostat counts time AFTER it reaches to target temperature.
You can program PHASE I at 70C for 1 Minute. The slower cooker may take 30 minutes to reach to 70C. the thermostat will keep this 70C for 1 minute and then turn to PHASE II. This way the real time of PHASE I is 31 minutes.
