Helpful hints and tips

Cookware for induction cooking zones


In induction cooking a powerful electromagnetic field generates an almost instant heat inside the cookware.

Cookware material


cast iron, steel, enamelled steel, stainless steel, a multi-layer bottom

(marked as correct by a manufacturer).

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.

Overriding the child safety device for one cooking session

• Start the hob with . The indicator comes on.

• Touch for 4 seconds.

Set the heat setting in less than 10 seconds.

, comes on, the appliance is in standard mode. The sound is on.

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

• The bottom of pans and cooking zones must have the same dimension.

Öko Timer (Eco Timer)

• 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.

To save the energy, the heater of the cooking zone switches itself off earlier than count down timer signal. The heating time reduction depends on cooking level and cooking time.
