This appliance conforms to the Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment Directive WEEE 2002/96/EC.
This directive defines the framework for recycling used
appliances within European territory

Always place the correct lid on cookware. Cooking with an
uncovered pan will result in a four-fold increase in energy
use. Use a glass lid to provide visibility and avoid having to
lift the lid.
Use cookware equipped with a solid, flat bottom. Curved pan
bases increase energy consumption.
The diameter of the pan base must match the size of the
hotplate. If not, energy may be wasted. Note: The
manufacturer normally indicates the pan's upper diameter.
This is normally greater than the diameter of the pan's base.
Choose cookware of a size suited to the amount of food you
are going to cook. A large pan that is only half full will use a
lot of energy.
Use a small amount of water when cooking. This saves
energy, and vegetables retain their vitamins and minerals.
Select a lower power level.
Induction cooking
Advantages of induction cooking
Unsuitable pans
Induction cooking represents a radical change from the
traditional method of heating; the heat is generated directly in
the pan. It therefore offers a number of advantages:
Never use pans made from:
■
■
■
■
■
common thin steel
■
glass
■
earthenware
Energy is saved.
■
copper
Care and cleaning are simpler. Foods that have spilt do not
burn as quickly.
■
aluminium
Time savings for cooking and frying; since the pan is heated
directly.
Heat and safety control; the hob supplies or cuts off power
immediately when the control knob is turned on. The
induction hotplate stops supplying heat if the pan is removed
without having previously switched it off.
Suitable pans
Characteristics of the pan base
The characteristics of the pan base may affect the uniformity of
the cooking results. Pans made from materials which help
diffuse heat, such as stainless steel sandwich pans, distribute
heat uniformly, saving time and energy.
Absence of pan or unsuitable size
Ferromagnetic pans
Only ferromagnetic pans are suitable for induction cooking,
these may be made from:
If no pan is placed on the selected hotplate, or if it is made of
unsuitable material or is not the correct size, the power level
displayed on the hotplate indicator will flash. Place a suitable
pan on the hotplate to stop the flashing. If this takes more than
90 seconds, the hotplate will switch off automatically.
■
enamelled steel
■
cast iron
Empty pans or those with a thin base
■
special cutlery for stainless steel induction pan
Do not heat empty pans, nor use pans with a thin base. The
hob is equipped with an internal safety system. However, an
empty pan may heat up so quickly that the "automatic switch
off" function may not have time to react and the pan may reach
very high temperatures. The base of the pan could melt and
damage the glass on the hob. In this case, do not touch the
pan and switch the hotplate off. If it fails to work after it has
cooled down, please contact the Technical Assistance Service.
To determine whether a pan is suitable, check to see if a
magnet will stick to it.
Other suitable cookware for induction
There are other types of cookware especially made for
induction whose base is not entirely ferromagnetic.
When using large cookware on a
smaller ferromagnetic zone, only
the ferromagnetic zone heats up,
so heat might not be uniformly
distributed.
Pan detection
Each hotplate has a minimum limit for detecting pans, which
varies depending on the material of the pan being used. You
should therefore use the hotplate that is most suitable for the
diameter of your pan.
Cookware with aluminium on the
base reduce the ferromagnetic
zone, so less heat may be supplied or be difficult to detect.
For good cooking results, the
diameter of the cookware's ferromagnetic area should match the
size of the hotplate. If cookware
is not detected on a hotplate, try
it on the next smaller hotplate
down.

Normal noise while the appliance is working
A high-pitched whistling sound
Induction heating technology is based on the creation of
electromagnetic fields that generate heat directly at the base of
the pan. Depending on how the pan has been manufactured,
certain noises or vibrations may be produced such as those
described below:
This noise is produced mainly in pans made from different
materials superimposed on one another, and it occurs when
such pans are heated at maximum power on two hotplates at
the same time. The whistling disappears or becomes fainter as
soon as the power level is lowered.
A deep humming sound as in a transformer
Noise from the fan
This noise is produced when cooking on a high power level. It
is caused by the amount of energy transferred from the hob to
the pan. The noise disappears or becomes faint when the
power level is lowered.
A low whistling sound
This noise is produced when the pan is empty. It disappears
when water or food is added to the pan.
A crackling sound
This noise occurs in pans which are made from different
materials superimposed on one another. It is caused by the
vibrations that occur in the ajoining surfaces of the different
superimposed materials. The noise comes from the pan. The
amount of food and cooking method can vary.
For proper use of the electronic system, the temperature of the
hob must be controlled. For this purpose, the hob has a fan
that starts working when detecting excess temperatures at
different power levels. The fan may also work due to inertia
after the hob has been switched off, if the temperature detected
is still too high.
Rhythmic sounds similar to a clock's hands
This noise is only produced when 3 or more hotplates are
working and disappears or is reduced when one of the
hotplates is switched off.
The noises described are normal, they are part of induction
heating technology and not a sign of malfunction.
