Being relatively new to this type cooker, I have always used it for keeping the temps even. My vision Kamado is very good at heat retention, but I feel that the water radiates a more even heat across the grill. As the fuel below burns off in different spots the water pan absorbs the heat and evenly distributes it across the cook area. IMHO
