Induction heating
• The Principle of Induction Heating: When you place your cookware on a cooking
zone and you turn it on, the electronic circuits in your induction hob produce
“induced currents” in the bottom of the cookware which instantly raise cookware’s
Induced currents
Induction coil
Electronic circuits
• Greater speed in cooking and frying: As the pan is heated directly and not the
glass, the efficiency is greater than in other systems because no heat is lost. Most of
the energy absorbed is transformed into heat.

• When buying new pans, pay particular attention to the diameter of the base.
Manufacturers often give only the diameter of the upper rim.
• Do not use pans which have damaged bases with rough edges or burrs. Permanent
scratching can occur if these pan are slid across the surface.
• When cold, pan bases are normally bowed slightly inwards (concave). They should
never be bowed outwards (convex).
• If you wish to use a special type of pan, for example, a pressure cooker, a simmering
pan, or a wok, please observe the manufacturer’s instructions.
Energy saving tips
You can save valuable energy by observing the following points.
• Always position pots and pans
before switching on the cooking
• Dirty cooking zones and pan bases
increase power consumption.
• When possible, position the lids
firmly on the pots and pans to
cover completely.
• Switch the cooking zones off before
the end of the cooking time to use
the residual heat for keeping foods
warm or for thawing.
