Helpful hints and tips
• The bottom of the cookware must be as thick
and flat as possible.
• Cookware made of enamelled steel and with aluminium or copper bottoms can cause discoloration on
glass ceramic surface.
Cookware for induction cooking zones
Important! In induction cooking a powerful
electromagnetic field generates an almost instant heat
inside the cookware.
Cookware material
• correct: cast iron, steel, enamelled steel, stainless
steel, a multi-layer bottom (marked as correct by a
• not correct: aluminium, copper, brass, glass, ceramic, porcelain.
Cookware is correct for an induction hob if …
• ... some water boils very quickly on a zone set to the
highest heat setting..
• ... a magnet pulls on to the bottom of the cookware.
The bottom of the cookware must be as thick and
flat as possible.
Cookware dimensions : induction cooking zones adapt
to the dimension of the bottom of the cookware automatically to some limit. But, the magnetic part of the bottom of the cookware must have a minimum diameter of
approximately 3/4 of the cooking zones.
Operating noises
If you can hear
• cracking noise: cookware is made of different materials (Sandwich construction).
• whistling: you use one or more cooking zones with
high power levels and the cookware is made of different materials (Sandwich construction).
• humming: you use high power levels.
• clicking: electric switching occurs.
• hissing, buzzing: the fan operates.
The noises are normal and do not refer to any defects.
Energy saving
• If possible, always put the lids on the cookware.
• Put cookware on a cooking zone before you
start it.
• Stop the cooking zones before the end of the cooking
time to use residual heat.
Use to:
Keep cooked foods warm
• The bottom of pans and cooking zones must have
the same dimension.
