is still very high, do not let your fingers touch induction glass directly in case of scalds.
Note: After use, switch off the hob element by its control and do not rely on the pan detector.
Using the Touch Controls
• The controls respond to touch, so you don’t need to apply any pressure.
• Use the ball of your finger, not its tip.
• You will hear a beep each time a touch is registered.
• Make sure the controls are always clean, dry, and that there is no object (e.g. a utensil or a cloth)
covering them. Even a thin film of water may make the controls difficult to operate.
Choosing the right Cookware
• Only use cookware with a base suitable for induction cooking. Look for the induction symbol on the packaging or on the
bottom of the pan.
• You can check whether your cookware is suitable by carrying out a magnet test. Move a magnet towards the base of the pan.
If it is attracted, the pan is suitable for induction.
• If you do not have a magnet:
1. Put some water in the pan you want to check.
2. If “
” does not flash in the display and the water is heating, the pan is suitable.
• Cookware made from the following materials is not suitable: pure stainless steel, aluminium or copper without a magnetic
base, glass, wood, porcelain, ceramic, and earthenware.
Do not use cookware with jagged edges or a curved base.
Make sure that the base of your pan is smooth, sits flat against the glass, and is the same size as the cooking zone. Use pans
whose diameter is as large as the graphic of the zone selected.Using a pot a slightly wider energy will be used at its maximum
efficiency.If you use smaller pot efficiency could be less than expected.Pot less than 140 mm could be undetected by the hob.
Always centre your pan on the cooking zone.
Always lift pans off the Induction hob – do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.
