I understand that very well.
A friend who mentioned a problem here claims the Wallas needs about 15 min to get hot enough, and it excessively heats the cabin
during this time.
Besides (my own conclusion after carefully reading the Wallas AD): the whole hob area is hot, while one uses only its left (hottest) part for cooking.
So, most probably perfect for colder climate, might still be problematic, for, say, Med in summer.
I have no decision, as I said before.
