INTRODUCTION
Introducing your cooktop
Congratulations on your new purchase. Your induction cooktop is the ultimate in
induction cooking, giving you the speed, precision, and simplicity of electronic control,
and the easy-care elegance of a ceramic glass surface. For more information, visit our
local website listed on the back cover.
A word on induction cooking
●
●
●
Induction cooking is a safe, advanced, efficient, and economical cooking technology.
It works by electromagnetic vibrations generating heat directly in the pan, rather than
indirectly through heating the glass surface. The glass becomes hot only because
the pan eventually warms it up. This technology has a number of advantages over
traditional radiant energy cooking:
Heat-up times are much faster.
Use is safer as no heating takes place unless a suitable pan is placed on the cooking
zone.
As heat is transferred without loss, you save energy.
Before using your new cooktop
●
●
Read this guide, taking special note of the ‘Safety and warnings’ section.
Remove any protective film that may still be on your cooktop.
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.
Make sure the controls are always clean, dry, and there is no object (eg a utensil or
a cloth) covering them. Even a thin film of water may make the controls difficult to
operate.
5
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COOKWARE
To check if cookware is suitable
●
Carry out a magnet test:
●
Move a magnet across the base of the pan.
If the magnet is attracted then the pan is induction suitable.
●
Note: Make sure attraction is consistent across the base of the pan.
If there are gaps, such as an indented manufacturer’s logo,
then the performance of the pan will be impaired.
●
If you do not have a magnet:
1
2
3
Put some water in the pan you want to check.
Follow the steps under ‘To start cooking’.
If
does not flash in the display and the water is heating, the pan is suitable.
Quality of cookware
IMPORTANT!
●
●
The quality of your cookware can affect cooking performance. Only use induction
compatible cookware that has been specifically designed for induction cooking.
Look for the induction symbol on the packaging or the bottom of the pan.
Cookware that has a high content of ferromagnetic material that continues up from
the base into the sides of the pan will give the best cooking performance.
See below:
Quickest heating
Performance
High content of
ferromagnetic material.
Heating area is
consistent across the
base and continues up
the sides of pan.

Average heating
Performance
Reduced area of
ferromagnetic material.
Reduced zone of

Results in very slow
heating performance.
Note: This type of
pot is good for very
delicate tasks such as
melting chocolate, as
heating is very slow.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COOKWARE
Cookware guidelines
●
Cookware made from the following materials is suitable:
●
stainless steel with a magnetic base or core
●

COOKING GUIDELINES
IMPORTANT!
Take care when frying: oil and fat heat up very quickly, particularly if you’re using
PowerBoost. At extremely high termperatures oil and fat will ignite spontaneously and
this presents a serious fire risk.

When food comes to the boil, reduce the temperature setting.
Using a lid will reduce cooking times and save energy by retaining the heat.
Minimize the amount of liquid or fat to reduce cooking times.
Start cooking on a high setting and reduce the setting when the food has heated
through.
Simmering, cooking rice
Simmering occurs below boiling point, at around 185OF, when bubbles are just rising
occasionally to the surface of the cooking liquid. It is the key to delicious soups and
tender stews because the flavours develop without overcooking the food. You should
also cook egg-based and flour-thickened sauces below boiling point.
Some tasks, including cooking rice by the absorption method, may require a setting
higher than the lowest setting to ensure the food is cooked properly in the time
recommended.
Searing steak
To cook juicy flavoursome steaks:
Stand the meat at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.
Heat up a heavy-based frying pan.
Brush both sides of the steak with oil. Drizzle a small amount of oil into the hot pan and
then lower the meat onto the hot pan.
Turn the steak only once during cooking. The exact cooking time will depend on the
thickness of the steak and how cooked you want it. Times may vary from about 2 – 8
minutes per side. Press the steak to gauge how cooked it is – the firmer it feels the more
‘well done’ it will be.
Leave the steak to rest on a warm plate for a few minutes to allow it to relax and
become tender before serving.
For stir-frying
When stir-frying be careful to lift the pan clear of the surface if tossing the ingredients.
Sliding the pan across the cooktop surface may scratch it.
Choose an induction compatible flat-based wok or a large frying pan.
Have all the ingredients and equipment ready. Stir-frying should be quick. If cooking
large quantities, cook the food in several smaller batches.
Preheat the pan briefly and add two tablespoons of oil.
Cook any meat first, put it aside and keep warm.
Stir-fry the vegetables. When they are hot but still crisp, turn the cooking zone to a
lower setting, return the meat to the pan and add your sauce.
Stir the ingredients gently to make sure they are heated through.
Serve immediately.

CARE AND CLEANING
WHAT?
HOW?
IMPORTANT!
Everyday soiling
on glass
(fingerprints, marks,
stains left by food or
non-sugary spillovers
on the glass)
1 Switch the power to the
cooktop off at the wall.
2 Apply cooktop cleaner to
a clean lint-free cloth and
rub gently while the glass
is still warm (but not hot!)
3 Rinse and wipe dry with a
clean cloth or paper towel.
4 Switch the power to the
cooktop back on at the
wall.
●
●
●
Boilovers, melts,
acidic sauces or
marinades and hot
sugary spills on the
glass
Spillover on the
touch controls and
stainless steel trim
26
Remove these immediately
with a fish slice, palette knife
or razor blade scraper suitable
for ceramic glass cooktops, but
beware of hot cooking zone
surfaces:
1 Switch the power to the
cooktop off at the wall.
2 Hold the blade or utensil
at a 30o angle and scrape
the soiling or spill to a cool
area of the cooktop.
3 Clean the soiling or spill up
with a dish cloth or paper
towel.
4 Follow steps 2 to 4 for
‘Everyday soiling on glass’
above.
●
1 Switch the power to the
cooktop off at the wall.
2 Soak up the spill.
3 Wipe the touch control
area with a clean damp
sponge or cloth.
4 Wipe the area completely
dry with a paper towel.
5 Switch the power to the
cooktop back on at the
wall.
●
●
When the power to the
cooktop is switched off,
there will be no ‘hot
surface’ indication but the
cooking zone may still be
hot! Take extreme care.
Heavy-duty scourers, some
nylon scourers and harsh/
abrasive cleaning agents
may scratch the glass.
Always read the label to
check if your cleaner or
scourer is suitable.
Never leave cleaning
residue on the cooktop:
the glass may become
stained.
Remove stains left by
melts and sugary food
or spillovers as soon as
possible. If left to cool
on the glass, they may be
difficult to remove or even
permanently damage the
glass surface.
Cut hazard: when the
safety cover is retracted,
the blade in a scraper
is razor-sharp. Use with
extreme care and always
store safely and out of
reach of children.
The cooktop may beep
and turn itself off, and the
touch controls may not
function while there is
liquid on them. Make sure
you wipe the touch control
area dry before turning the
cooktop back on.
TROUBLESHOOTING

TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSES
WHAT TO DO
Some pans make
crackling or clicking
noises.
This may be caused by the
construction of your
cookware (layers of different
metals vibrating differently).
This is normal for induction
cookware and does not
indicate a fault.
The cooktop makes
a low humming noise
when used on a high
heat setting (especially
PowerBoost).
This is caused by the
technology of induction
cooking.
This is normal, but the
noise should quieten down
or disappear completely
when you decrease the
heat setting.
Fan noise coming from
the cooktop.
A cooling fan built into
your cooktop has come on
to prevent the electronics
from overheating. It may
continue to run even after
you’ve turned the cooktop
off.
This is normal and needs
no action. Do not switch
the power to the cooktop
off at the wall while the
fan is running.
Pans do not become hot
appears in the
and
display.
The cooktop cannot detect
the pan because it is not
suitable for induction
cooking.
Use cookware suitable for
induction cooking. See
section ‘Choosing the right
cookware’.
The cooktop cannot detect
the pan because it is too
small for the cooking zone or
not properly centred on it.
 flashes in the display
when you are trying to
set PowerBoost.
The cooktop or a cooking
zone has turned itself off
unexpectedly, a tone
sounds and an error code
is displayed (typically
 or  alternating with
one or two digits in the
cooking zone displays).
28
Centre the pan and make
sure that its base matches
the size of the cooking
zone.
PowerBoost is temporarily
unavailable because the
cooktop needs to protect
itself from overheating.
Allow the cooktop to cool
down.
Technical fault.
Please note down the error
letters and numbers,
switch the power to the
cooktop off at the wall, and
contact your Authorized
Service Centre or Customer
Care with the error code
information.
TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSES
WHAT TO DO
Condensation is forming
on surrounding walls,
cabinetry or your
overhead rangehood.
This is a normal for induction
cooking.
Energy efficient technology
means that no heat is lost to
surrounding surfaces.
This results in condensation
forming on these cooler
surfaces when steam is
produced by cooking.
This is normal for induction
cooking and does not
indicate a fault.
To minimise condensation:
●
Ensure adequate
ventilation when
cooking.
●
Switch your rangehood
on 5 minutes before
cooking and let it run
for at least minutes after
cooking.
●
Use your rangehood on
a lower speed setting
when boiling.
●
Use the cooktop on a
lower heat setting when
boiling.
●
Use pot lids to stop
moisture from escaping.
●
If condensation forms,
wipe down surrounding
walls and cabinetry as
needed.
