Using good quality cookware is critical for setting the best performance from your hob. Always use good quality cookware with perfectly flat and thick bases : using this type of cookware will prevent hot spots that cause food to stick. Thick metal pots and pans will provide an even distribution of heat. Note: make sure the terminal board screws are tight. Ensure that the base of the pot or pan is dry : when filling pans with liquid or using one that has been stored in the refrigerator, ensure that the base of the pan is completely dry before placing it on the hob. This will help to avoid staining the hob. Use pans whose diameter is wide enough to completely cover the surface unit : the size of the pan should be no smaller than the heating area. If it is slightly wider the energy will be used at its maximum efficiency. 08 GB THE CHOICE OF COOKWARE - The following information will help you to choose cookware which will give good performance. . STOPPING A COOKING ZONE - Press the selection button of the required cooking zone. Stainless Steel : highly recommended. Especially good with a sandwich clad base.

Now the zone goes off, the indicator goes off after 10 seconds. - To stop rapidly, press simultaneously the "-" and the respective cooking zone selection. The heat level automatically goes down to . The cooking zone goes off. Aluminium : heavy weight recommended. Good conductivity. Aluminium residues sometimes appear as scratches on the hob, but can be removed if cleaned immediately. Because of its low melting point, thin aluminium should not be used. . GENERAL STOP The cooking zones and the timer can be stopped at any moment by pressing the On-Off button. Cast Iron : usable, but not recommended. Poor performance. May scratch the surface. . RESIDUAL HEAT INDICATOR Copper Bottom / stoneware: heavy weight recommended. Good performance, but copper may leave residues which can appear as scratches. The residues can be removed, as long as the hob is cleaned immediately. However, do not let these pots boil dry. Overheated metal can bond to glass hobs. An overheated copper pot will leave a residue that will permanently stain the hob. The control panel tells the user when the surface temperature of the cooking zones exceeds about 60°C, by the following displaying: . When the temperature goes back below 60°C, the display goes off. For ending the cooking, we advise switching off the cooking zone and using the residual heat of the zone to finish cooking gently. N.B. After a cut in the current, the residual heat indicator disappears completely, even if the surface temperature exceeds 60°C. Porcelain/enamel : Good perfomance only with a thiny smooth, flat base.
