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.
The bottom of the cookware must be as thick
and flat as possible.
* SenseBoil® may not work properly with cast iron
Hints & Tips for SenseBoil®
The function works best for boiling water and
preparing potatoes. It does not work with
nonstick cookware, e.g. with a ceramic coating. It
might not work with cast iron cookware.
Enamelled steel pots are recommended for
achieving the best results while boiling potatoes.
Other pot types as well as cut, peeled or
different-sized potatoes may influence the
Make sure the surface of the hob is dry. Use only
pots with a dry and clean bottom.
Check if the pot you chose is suitable for SenseBoil®
by monitoring the first cooking session.
To use SenseBoil® efficiently follow the advice below:
Use only cold tap water.
• Fill between half to three
quarters of the pot with cold
tap water leaving 4 cm from
the rim of the pot empty.
max. 5l / 5kg / 75%
Do not use less than 1 or
min. 1l / 1kg / 50%
more than 5 litres of water.
Make sure the total weight
of the water (or the water
and potatoes) ranges between 1-5 kg.
• If you want to cook potatoes, make sure they are
completely covered with water, but remember to
leave at least one quarter of the pot empty.
• To achieve the best results cook only whole,
unpeeled, medium-sized potatoes.
• Avoid producing external vibrations (e.g. from using
a blender or placing a mobile phone next to the
appliance) when the function is running.
• If you want to use salt, add it after the water reaches
the boiling point.
• The function may not work properly for water kettles
and espresso pots.

cooking if you follow below hints.

• If it is possible, always put the lids on the cookware.
• Before you activate the cooking zone put the

You boiled some food other than water and potatoes. The
boiling point was moved in time and the SenseBoil® function
could not work properly.
