4.4 Key features of your hob
Your new SensePro® hob expertly
guides you through the entire cooking
session. Refer to the information below
to discover several of its best features.
Depending on the kind of food, you can
use Assisted Cooking with or without the
Food Sensor. For various dishes you get
different sets of functions.
Food Sensor
- can be used in two
ways. It measures the temperature in
functions such as Thermometer and Pan
Fry as well as helps you accurately
maintain the temperature for different
food types while cooking Sous Vide or
using functions such as Poach, Simmer
or Reheat.
Assisted Cooking - facilitates cooking
by providing you with ready-made
recipes for various dishes, pre-defined
cooking parameters, and step-by-step
instructions. You can use it with the Food
Sensor, e.g. to prepare a steak, or
without it, e.g. to prepare pancakes. The
available options depend on the kind of
dish you want to make. In this mode you
can use functions such as Sous Vide,
Pan Fry, Simmer, Reheat, and many
more. Pop-up windows and sounds
inform you when the pre-defined
temperature is reached. You can access
Assisted Cooking from the Menu.
Sous Vide
- a method of cooking
vacuum-packed food in low temperature,
for a prolonged period of time, which
helps you save vitamins and maintain the
flavour. Your hob provides you with clear
settings and instructions to follow. Once
you select the function via Assisted
Cooking, the temperatures are defined
for different food types. You can also
choose your own temperatures if you
activate the function via Sous Vide in the
Menu.
- a frying method with
Pan Fry
automatically controlled heat levels,
dedicated to various types of food. It
helps you avoid overheating of food or
oil. You can activate it by selecting
Assisted Cooking from the Menu.
Thermometer - with this function the
Food Sensor measures the temperature
while cooking. You cannot use it when
the Assisted Cooking function operates.
Other useful features of your hob:

melting chocolate or butter.
PowerBoost
- this function quickly
boils large quantities of water.
Pause
- this function lowers the heat
setting to 1 for all cooking zones,
enabling you to keep the food warm for a
long time.
Bridge
- this function allows you to
combine both left side zones and use
larger cookware. You can use it with Pan
Fry.
Hob²Hood - this function connects the
hob with a special hood and adjusts the
fan speed accordingly.
ENGLISH
Lock
- this function temporarily
disables the control panel during
cooking.
Child Lock - this function disables the
control panel while the hob does not
operate, preventing accidental use.

6.19 Hob²Hood
It is an advanced automatic function
which connects the hob to a special
hood. Both the hob and the hood have
an infrared signal communicator. The
speed of the fan is defined automatically
on the basis of the mode setting and the
temperature of the hottest pot on the
hob.
For most of the hoods the remote system
is originally deactivated. Activate it
before you use the function. For more
information refer to the hood user
manual.
To operate the function automatically, set
the automatic mode to H1 - H6. The hob
is originally set to H5. The hood reacts
whenever you operate the hob. The hob
recognizes the temperature of the
cookware automatically and adjusts the
speed of the fan. You can set the hob to
activate only the light by selecting H1.
If you change the fan speed
on the hood, the default
connection with the hob is
deactivated. To reactivate
the function, turn both

7. HINTS AND TIPS
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
7.1 Cookware
For induction cooking zones
a strong electro-magnetic
field creates the heat in the
cookware very quickly.
Use the induction cooking
zones with suitable
cookware.
Cookware material
•
correct: cast iron, steel, enamelled
steel, stainless steel, multi-layer
bottom (with a correct marking from a
manufacturer).
• not correct: aluminium, copper,
brass, glass, ceramic, porcelain.
Cookware is suitable for an induction
hob if:
•
•
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.
Ensure pan bases are clean
and dry before placing on
the hob surface.
Cookware dimensions
Induction cooking zones adapt to the
dimension of the bottom of the cookware
automatically.
The cooking zone efficiency is related to
the diameter of the cookware. The
cookware with a diameter smaller than
the minimum receives only a part of the
power generated by the cooking zone.
Refer to "Technical data".
7.2 The noises during operation
If you can hear:
•
crack noise: cookware is made of
different materials (a sandwich
construction).
• whistle sound: you use a cooking
zone with a high power level and the
cookware is made of different
materials (a sandwich construction).
• humming: you use a high power level.
• clicking: electric switching occurs, the
pot is detected after you place it on
the hob.
• hissing, buzzing: the fan operates.
The noises are normal and do not
indicate any malfunction.
7.3 Öko Timer (Eco Timer)
To save energy, the heater of the
cooking zone deactivates before the
count down timer sounds. The difference
in the operation time depends on the
heat setting level and the length of the
cooking operation.
7.4 Examples of cooking
applications
The correlation between the heat setting
of a zone and its consumption of power
is not linear. When you increase the heat
setting, it is not proportional to the
increase of the consumption of power. It
means that a cooking zone with the
medium heat setting uses less than a
half of its power.
The data in the table is for
guidance only.

7.5 Hints and Tips for the
Food Sensor
For functions such as
Assisted Cooking and Sous
Vide, you can use the Food
Sensor on the left side of the
hob only. With the
Thermometer function you
can use the Food Sensor
also on the right side of the
hob.
To ensure strong connection ( ,
)
between the Food Sensor and the hob:
For liquids
•
Immerse the Food Sensor in the
liquid, within the recommended
•
immersion range. The minimum level
mark has to be covered.
Place the Food Sensor on the rim of
the pot. If possible, keep it in the
vertical position. Make sure its tip
comes into contact with the bottom of
the pot. The handle of the Food
Sensor should always be outside of
the pot or pan.
ENGLISH
23
For solid foods (core temperature
measurement)
•
•
•
If you want to use the Food Sensor on
the left side of the hob, ensure that it
is near the centre of the hob, at 1 - 3
o'clock position. If you want to use it
on the right (with the Thermometer
function), make sure it is placed at 9 11 o'clock position. Refer to the
illustrations below.
You can move the Food Sensor along
the rim of the pot if the connection
fails to establish.
You can partially cover the pot with a
lid.
If you use the left front cooking zone,
do not place any large pots on the left
rear one. Large pots on the left rear
cooking zone may block the signal.
Move the large pot to the right rear
cooking zone.
•
Insert the Food Sensor across the
thickest part of the food, up to the
minimum level mark. The
measurement point should be in the
central part of the portion.
•
Make sure the Food Sensor is firmly
inserted in the food. The metal parts
of the Food Sensor should not touch
the walls of the pot / pan. The hook of
the handle has to point downwards.
•
For meat / fish with a thickness of 2 3 cm, the tip of the Food Sensor
should reach the bottom of the pan.
Remove the Food Sensor before
turning the food over.
When using a plancha, make sure the
handle of the Food Sensor stays on
the right side, outside of its surface.
Refer to the illustrations below.

7.6 Cooking at low
temperatures - Food safety
principles
Make sure you comply with the following
instructions when cooking at low
temperatures, e.g. Sous Vide.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Wash / disinfect your hands before
preparing food. Use disposable
gloves.
Use only high quality fresh food,
stored in appropriate conditions.
Always wash and peel fruits and
vegetables thoroughly.
Keep your worktop surface and
cutting boards clean. Use different
cutting boards for different types of
food.
Pay special attention to food hygiene
when preparing poultry, eggs, and
fish. Poultry should always be
prepared at the temperature of at
least 65 °C for a minimum of 50
minutes.
Make sure the fish you want to
prepare with the use of Sous Vide
have the sashimi quality, i.e. it is extra
fresh.
Store the prepared food in a
refrigerator for a maximum of 24
hours.
For people with a weakened immune
system or chronic health conditions it
is advisable to pasteurise food before
consuming it. Pasteurise the food at
60 °C for a minimum of one hour.
7.7 Cooking Guide
The table below shows examples of food
types and provides you with the optimal
temperatures and suggested cooking
times. The parameters may vary
depending on the temperature, quality,
consistency, and quantity of food.
The length of the cooking time depends
more on the thickness of the food than
on its weight. E.g. for steak, the thicker
the piece, the more time it takes for its
core to reach the pre-defined
temperature. A 2 cm-thick steak requires
around one hour to reach 58 °C, while a
5 cm-thick one needs around four hours.
Monitor the first cooking session to
ensure the parameters below suit your
cooking habits and cookware. You can
change these parameters depending on
your personal preferences.

Additional tips for Assisted Cooking:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Fill the pot with a suitable amount of
liquid (i.e. between 1 - 3 litres) before
cooking. Try to avoid adding more
while cooking.
Use a lid to save energy and reach
the temperature faster (also for
preheating water).
Stir your dish regularly throughout the
cooking process to ensure a uniform
temperature distribution.
Add salt at the very beginning of a
cooking session.
Defrost food before preparing it.
Add vegetables (e.g. broccoli,
cauliflower, green beans, Brussels
sprouts) when the water reaches the
intended temperature and the pop-up
window appears.
Add potatoes or rice to cold water
before you start the function.
For stews, sauces, soups, curries,
ragout, goulash, and broths you can
use Reheat or Simmer. Before you
start the Simmer function, fry the
ingredients (without the Food Sensor)
and add cold liquid; next, activate the
function from Assisted Cooking.
• For small seafood, e.g. octopus
slices / tentacles or shellfish you can
use Pan Fry.
Additional tips for Pan Fry:
WARNING!
Use only pans with flat
bottoms.
CAUTION!
Use laminated pans only
with low heat setting levels,
to prevent overheating and
damage of the cookware.
•
•
•
•
Start the function when the hob is cold
(no preheating is necessary).
Use sandwich bottom cookware made
of stainless steel.
Do not use cookware with an
embossment in the centre of the
bottom.
Different sizes of pans can cause
different heat up times. Heavy pans
ENGLISH
•
•
store more heat than the lighter ones
and take more time to heat up.
Turn the food over once it reaches a
half of the desired temperature.
Very thick portions of food should be
turned over more often (i.e. once
every two minutes). We recommend
you use the Sous Vide method first, to
get best results. To add a finishing
touch, put the prepared portions on a
pre-heated pan and roast them
quickly on both sides.
Always remove the Food Sensor
before turning the food over.
7.8 Hints and Tips for
Hob²Hood
When you operate the hob with the
function:
Keep the window of the
Hob²Hood infrared signal
communicator clean.
Other remotely controlled
