Ours is not perfect at simmering but it's a damn sight better than the solid hot plate electic cooker, that *cannot* simmer. Even on "1" if you leave anything without stiring for more than 5 mins it will burn.
The cheapo induction on "1" is a bit more than a gentle simmer and things will stick after 5 mins but stick only they won't have burn't, the bottom of the pan just doesn't get hot enough. It also has a "temperature" mode, set that to 80 C and it's a "keep warm", I might try 100 C for a gentler simmer below "1" but I might have already tried that.
All sounds complicated but as the settings and controls behave in a consistent manner, ie set it to X it will do Y, irrespective of pan size or duration it has been on or since last change it is easy to pick up the settings you like.
Other electric hot plates are very inconsistent in use due to the high thermal mass. Pans can be fairly rapidly boiling 5 mins after you turned the ring off! And the crude ON OFF control means that if you look at a pan set for "simmer" (ha!) just before it's about to switch ON it looks too low or if you look just as it switches OFF too high. You simply can't just look at a a pan and say too high/low you need to look twice 30s to a minute apart.
