Induction Wok Ring from Gaggenau?

babyraccoon | Aug 2, 202003:21 AM     13

Hello all,

Does anyone have any idea if the Gaggenau induction wok ring does anything more than just hold a round-bottomed wok above the induction zone? As in, does it somehow trigger the induction zone and extend the magnetic field out further on the wok? This is the wok ring I'm referring to:

I currently have the De Buyer wok ring:

Further details of which in this post:

From what I can tell, all the De Buyer ring does is hold a round-bottom wok steady, but doesn't trigger the induction zone in and of itself.

I have recently experienced the disappointment of purchasing a stainless round-bottom wok from Demeyere, only to discover that it is only recognised by the smallest (and least convenient) cooking on zone my Gaggenau cooktop using the De Buyer ring. I'm trying to figure out if I'd have better luck with the Gaggeanau wok ring. I've contacted Gaggenau but am not expecting anything more than a stock answer of 'the wok ring works only with model XXX and with the Gaggenau branded wok.' Hence I thought I'd see if anyone here has any thoughts.
Thanks in advance!
