The one I've got is really paranoid.  The "unlock" button must be 
pressed before a "burner" is powered.  It can also be used to lock the 
settings as well.  If the burner gives up after about 30 seconds of a 
"no pan" situation, it powers off--and locks again.

Oddly enough, I really appreciate that.  More than once, I've left an 
electric "coil" type burner on at a low setting, completely forgetting 
about it...
