I don’t know for sure on those models but most likely it needs to be tuned. Most PIDs need a learning moment to learn the temp fluctuations and the speed at which it takes to increase and decrease the temperature. Is there something in the instructions that say that? Maybe the factory is programming it with a pre-set value?

No it does not but I guess they know the capacity, heaters, thermal capacity etc so this should be the same for every same pot, it might be just saved in the memory in the factory but I am not sure though although it seems to be pretty accurate. However PID seems too much for such pot and the price.

Overall bulding quality is nice but the main material (INOX) is very thin and you can bend it with your hand and also good isolation is necessary I think.

Does anyone changed the original tap on Ace/Klarstein etc? It is very slow to empty the pot with it, it is not fully open 1/2', it's limited inside.

never noticed an issue, how fast do you want it to empty?
