Can I use the simmer plate at a higher temperature than low?

Answer:

The simmer plate can be used at no higher than medium. Keep in mind, though, that the simmer plate will retain heat. For instance, if you are bringing rice to a boil and then dropping it down to a simmer, the rice may boil over because the simmer plate will not react fast enough. It is best to bring the rice to a boil without the simmer plate, then transfer it to the simmer plate to cook.
