3.1
Operation of Product
Choosing the right Cookware
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. Always centre your pan on the cooking zone.
Always lift pans off the ceramic hob – do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.
8
3.2
3.2.1
How to use
Start cooking
Place a suitable pan on the cooking zone that you wish to use.
• Make sure the bottom of the pan and the surface of the
cooking zone are clean and dry.
Adjust the power regulating control to the desired level to turn
on the control
3.2.2
Finish cooking
Turn the cooking zone off by turning the power regulating
control to “OFF” to turn off the control
Beware of hot surfaces
When the glass plate is hot, the hot hob warning indicator will light. Don’t touch the glass plate until the
indicator goes out. It can also be used as an energy saving function if you want to heat further pans, use
the hotplate that is still hot.
4.
Cooking Guidelines
Take care when frying as the oil and fat heat up very quickly, particularly if you’re using
PowerBoost. At extremely high temperatures oil and fat will ignite spontaneously and this
presents a serious fire risk.
4.1
•
•
•
•
Cooking Tips
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.
9
4.1.1
•
•
Simmering, cooking rice
Simmering occurs below boiling point, at around 85˚C, 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.
4.1.2
Searing steak
To cook juicy flavorsome steaks:
1. Stand the meat at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.
2. Heat up a heavy-based frying pan.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. Leave the steak to rest on a warm plate for a few minutes to allow it to relax and become tender before
serving.
4.1.3
For stir-frying
1. Choose an ceramic compatible flat-based wok or a large frying pan.
2. Have all the ingredients and equipment ready. Stir-frying should be quick. If cooking large quantities,
cook the food in several smaller batches.
3. Preheat the pan briefly and add two tablespoons of oil.
4. Cook any meat first, put it aside and keep warm.
5. 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.
6. Stir the ingredients gently to make sure they are heated through.
7. Serve immediately.
5.
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.
2. Apply a cooktop cleaner 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.
• 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.
10
Boilovers, melts, and
hot sugary spills on
the glass
6.
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 30°
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.
• 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.
