Calling all Jotul F3 CB owners: does this stove get hot enough on top to be able to simmer food, or boil water (gradually), as my present stove does? I would hate to lose this advantage once I replace the old one (an unknown brand, made in China, long before everything was made in China). The Jotul seems to suit my heating requirements fine, I'm just wondering about how hot it gets on top (very, hopefully!) . My brother in the UK has just got an ILD3 (Jotul group) and he tells me it only gets warm on top - he can even put his hand on it while it's burning! So he can heat plates on it, but it's no good for simmering (he's got a cooker for that, he tells me, with typical Brit humour). I can't get a straight or trustworthy answer from the vendor on this. Can anyone out there help? Thanks.
