FIRST TIME USE
POWER MANAGEMENT
Thanks to the “Power management” function, the user can set the
maximum power the hob can reach, as required.
This setting is possible at any time and is maintained until the next change.
By setting the required maximum power, the hob automatically adjusts
distribution in the various cooking zones, ensuring that this limit is
never exceeded; with the advantage of also being able to manage all
the zones simultaneously, but without overload problems.
4 maximum power levels are available and showed on display: 2.5 kW –
4.0 kW – 6.0 kW – 7.2 kW (7.2 kW is considered as max power of cooktop).
At the time of purchase, the hob is set to maximum power.
To set the hob power:
After plugging the appliance into the electrical socket, in the first 60
seconds it is possible to set the required power level by running the
following points:

appears in
the middle and an acoustic signal sounds for about 5 seconds. In this
case repeat the configuration procedure from the beginning. If the error
occurs again, contact the After-Sales Service.
During normal use, if the user tries to increase the maximum available
power level when reached, the level of the zone in use flashes twice and
an acoustic signal sounds.
To obtain a higher power in that zone, it is necessary to manually
decrease the power level of one or more already active cooking zones.

buttons of the zones. To switch off the zones instantly, hold one of the
zone selection button for 3 seconds.
EN
The Flexi Cook function is also able to detect when a pot is moved
from one zone to the other one within the Flexi Cook area keeping
the same power level of the zone where the pan originally was placed
(see the example in the figure below: if the pot is moved from the front
heater to the rear heater, the power level will be shown on the display
corresponding to the zone where the pot is placed).
It is also possible to operate the Flexi Cook area as two independent
cooking zones, using the corresponding button of the single zone. Place
the pot in the center of the single zone and adjust the power level with the
slide touch screen.
IMPORTANT: make sure to place the pans centered on the cooking zone in
the way to cover the center of the single cooking zone.
In case of big pot, oval, rectangular and elongated pans make sure to place
the pans centered on the cooking zone.
Examples of good pot placement and bad pot placement:
IMPORTANT: The message “no pot” (
) will appear on the display
of the zone that is not able to detect any pot (because of missing pot,
or misplaced or not suitable for induction hob). This message remains
active for 60 seconds: in this time you can add or slide pots within the
Flexi Cook area as you prefer.
After 60 seconds if no pan is placed on the zone, the system stops
“searching” pots on that zone, the symbol ( ) remains visible on the
display to remind that the zone is disabled.
To reactivate the Flexi Cook function, press one of the 2 buttons
