The induction principle
The principle of induction is based on a magnetic effect. When you place your cookware on a cooking zone
and you turn it on, the electronic circuits in your cooking hob produce “induced” currents in the bottom of
the cookware which instantly raise its temperature. This heat is then transmitted to the food.
In order for an induction hob to operate the cookware must have a ferrous base (containing Iron). A simple
rule is if a magnet sticks to the base of your pan then it should be suitable for use on induction hobs.
When you buy your cookware, make sure that one
of these logos are on the package; it assures you
that it is compatible with induction cooking.
To verify that your cookware is suitable, place it on a heating area on power 4. - If the display remains on,
your cookware is compatible.
- If the display flashes, your cookware cannot be used with induction cooking.
You can also use a magnet to test the cookware. If a magnet “sticks” to the bottom of the cookware, it is
compatible with induction. Glass, terra cotta, aluminium without a special finish on the bottom, copper
and some non-magnetic stainless steels do not work with induction cooking.
We recommend that you select cookware with a thick, flat bottom.

Quick Start Guide
Prior to using you appliance you need to ensure the appliance has been installed in accordance with the installation
instructions within this guide. Particular attention should be paid to the ventilation requirements as this could affect
the performance of the appliance as well as the long term reliability.
Care should be taken to ensure that the pan / pans being used are suitable both in size and material.
Place the pan on the zone and turn on the appliance using power control ”A”, select the power level required using
either the + and - controls “B”, or the pre-set levels “C”.
For further details of functions please see the “Product / safety features explained” section of this instruction book.
You may notice a clicking noise when either using multiple zones or a single zone on low power settings
(below level 7). This is normal and should not be considered a fault; it is the electronics of the appliance regulating the power delivery to the zones. You may notice a corresponding reduction of the bubbles in the base of the
pans on the hob, again this is normal.
Power sharing
The machine is manufactured with shared electronics controlling the cooking zones. The power delivered by
the independent electronics is split between the two zones. If “boost” is selected on one zone the power is
reduced on the other to ensure the maximum connected load is not breached. This is not a fault with the appliance.
You may wish to select “Boost” on the Continuum setting, it is worth noting that you may notice a clicking and alternating bubble pattern in the base of the cookware, this is normal.
Suitable cookware
If the display on the appliance flashes when set, this is an indication that either there is no pan on the zone
or, an unsuitable pan is being used. Please refer to the pan guide in the description section of this guide for
further details.
Additional functions and safety Features
Protection against overflows. In case of overflow, or of a metallic object or wet
cloth placed on the control areas, the hob turns itself off, the displays light up and a
beep sounds. Clean the hob or remove the object, then begin cooking again.
Temperature limiter. Each cooking zone is equipped with a safety sensor that constantly monitors the temperature of the bottom of the cookware. If you leave
empty cookware on a zone which is turned on, it will automatically limit the power
in order to prevent damage to the cookware or hob.
Residual heat. After a long cooking period, the zone used can remain hot for several minutes. An ‘’H’’ flashes during this period. Do not put your hand on the zone.
Auto-Stop system. If you forget cooking is in progress, after a predefined time,
this safety function will automatically turn off your hob (from 1 to 10 hours depending on the power setting). “AS” displays and a beep sounds after about 2 minutes. Press on the main selector to delete this information. A beep will confirm
your setting.
Automatic Pan Detection: detects when a suitable pan is placed on the cooking
zone and so eliminates the possibility of the hob being activated accidentally by a
non-suitable object.
“Small Items” safety. By placing a small object on the area (a ring, a fork, etc),
the hob will detect it and not deliver any power. The power display flashes.
Note: However, several small objects at the same time on a zone could be identified as cookware. In that case, power will be delivered by the hob. Do not place
any utensils (spoons, forks, covers, etc) on the cooking zone being used. They will
heat up in the same way as cookware: Risk of combustion.
Additional Functions and Safety Features
Child Lock: for added peace of mind, the child lock can be manually activated to
prevent accidental start-up.
To activate the lock pres the “I” key and hold until a beep is sounded and an indicator appears.
To de-activate hold the “I” key until the indicator goes out and a beep sounds.
Control Lock: can be activated to lock the control panel during the cooking
process. This will lock the controls set on the cooking zones but will allow the stop
key to function. This is activated in / deactivated in the same way as the child lock.
Clean lock
This function allows you to temporarily lock your hob while cleaning. To activate
Clean lock your cooking hob must be turned off.
- Briefly press touchpad “I”. A beep sounds and an indicator appears.
- After a predefined time, the lock will automatically disengage. A beep sounds and
the indicator goes out.
Electronic Power Monitor: prevents power surge and de-surge in the event of
electrical interference without loss of performance to the hob.
•Independent timer.
This function allows you to time an event, without cooking.
- Select a cooking zone you are not using.
- Set the time with touchpad “G”. A “t” flashes in the display.
- At the end of your adjustment “t” becomes fixed and the count begins.
You can stop a count in progress by keeping your finger on the touchpad of the selection on
the display.
Timer Function
Each zone of the appliance can be controlled by using the timer function to turn off the zone
after a set period of time.
Select the zone required and adjust the power as required. press the timer controls “G” and
using the “+” or “-”keys select the cooking time required. The appliance will now count down
the time and turn off as required. When the time remaining is less than 1 minute the display
will indicate seconds remaining. At the end of the time a beep will indicate the end of cooking.
Additional Functions and Safety Features
Pre Heat /
Heat up
Pre-heat / Heat up
This Function will preheat the contents of the pan to boiling temperature before reducing
to your selected power.
To select the function turn on the required zone then press the “-“on the power selection
keys, “HU” is shown on the display, Select the power level to be maintained after the initial
heat up ( this must be level 7 or above ). During the pre-heat phase the display will alternate between the selected power level and “HU”, once the preheating is complete the display will revert to the power level only. This feature can be used in conjunction with the
timer functions. For example you can set the appliance to preheat a pan of pasta to a boil
reduce the pan to a simmer then time the entire cooking phase to ensure perfect results
every time.
Boil Function
The boil function allows the user to heat to boiling point a quantity of water prior to
adding food such as Pasta or vegetables and then maintaining the boiling for a period
of time set by the user.
To operate the boil function touch the “boil” icon on the touch pad, the display will
then show the volume of water to be boiled in litres. The volume can then be adjusted
using the “+” or “-” keys (0.5l, 1l, 1.5l,2l, 2.5l, 3l, 4l, 5l or 6l) confirm by pressing the
“boil” key. A short beep and “boiL” appears on the display. When a consistent boil is
achieved the hob will emit a pulsed beeping noise and “boil” will then scroll across
the display, at this point add the food and confirm by pressing the “boil” key, the display then changes to a pre-selected power, press the time required using the “+” “-”
keys and confirm by a further press on the “boil” key. At the end of the selected cooking time the display will turn off (displaying “H”) and the hob will beep to indicate the
end of the cooking.
The boil function can be used on all zones at the same time.
Elapsed Time
By pressing the elapsed time control for the required zone the control panel displays the
length of time that the zone has been operating since being turned on.
Cleaning and Maintaining your Appliance
