SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet
only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug.
If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the
plug in any way.
ABOUT INDUCTION COOKING
Induction cooking has been used for decades in restaurants and
commercial kitchens worldwide. Only now, has the induction revolution
been made available at an affordable cost for everyday household use.
How does induction work?
Induction cooking uses electromagnetic energy to heat cookware. When
cookware is placed on an induction cooktop and the cooker is turned
on, the coil inside the induction unit produces and alternating magnetic
field, which flows through the cookware. Molecules in the cookware
vibrate rapidly, causing the cookware to become hot almost instantly.
What types of cookware can be used?
Induction cooktops will only operate with a variety of cookware.
As explained in the paragraph above, induction cooking works by
electromagnetic energy, therefore, the outside bottom surface of the
cookware must be made of a ferrous magnetic material such as cast
iron, enameled steel or magnetic stainless steel. The interior or cooking
surface of the cookware can be aluminum or other non-ferrous material
with or without a non-stick coating as long as the bottom is ferrous.

It is very easy to check whether or not your cookware will work using
a fridge magnet or any other permanent magnet. If the magnet sticks
to the bottom of the pot/pan, the cookware will work on an induction
cooktop.
What are the advantages of induction cooking?
Induction cooking allows you to adjust the cooking heat instantly
and with great precision much like a gas burner, but with even more
accuracy.
Induction cooking is also faster, cleaner, safer and more energy efficient
than any other counter top cooking technology.
Faster
Energy is transferred directly to the cookware, there is no wasted heat,
resulting in extremely fast heat up time - even faster than gas.
Cleaner
An induction cooktop only gets hot under the bottom of the cookware.
The area around the cookware does not get hot, so drips, spatters and
spills don’t bake on the induction cooker surface. Simply wipe with a
damp cloth - cleanup is a breeze.
Safer
There are no open flames or hot elements. Induction cooktops will start
only once the appropriate cookware has been placed on the surface
and stops immediately when the cookware is removed. No more burned
fingers or hands and safer around young children.
Energy Efficient
Conventional cooking methods involve generating heat which is then
transferred to cookware. With induction cooking, there is almost no
wasted heat since heat is being generated in the cookware itself. Also,
because there are no open flames or hot elements releasing heat into
your kitchen, your kitchen stays cooler.
What can I cook on an induction cooker?
What you can cook on an induction cooker is no different than what you
can cook with gas, an electric coil or any other form of heat. There are
no special recipes or cookbooks.
Portable induction cookers are ideal for everyday use. They can also be
used for camping, cottages, dorm rooms and offices. They can be used
any place a stove is not available or an extra cooking surface is required.

Induction cooking is very powerful. By far the most common problem
with new users is that they don’t realize how quickly the pot generates
heat, causing food to burn or overcook. We recommend that you
‘practice’ using the induction cooker with a pot/pan of water and bring
it to a boil several times using different amounts of water and different
temperature/power settings to familiarize yourself with how quickly
water can come to a boil. In a very short time you will become familiar
with your induction cooker and enjoy its fast, clean, safe and energy
efficient features.

time during the cooking cycle, the unit will beep continually for 30
seconds, error code E1 will appear in the Display Window and the unit
will shut off automatically. In order to re-activate the unit, place cookware
back on the cooktop and follow steps 5 through 8.
POWER Function
(W)
The Power Function relates to the amount of wattage the cooktop uses.
Low Power (wattage) results in low cooking speed. As you increase the
Power the cooking speed is increased as is the wattage used.
While using this function, the temperature of the food is not being
regulated, only the power being used is set. Use the Power Function if a
specific temperature is not required, to bring water to a quick boil or for
quick browning/frying and sautéing.
Press the On/Off Button to turn the unit on, then press the Temperature/
Power Selector Button once. The corresponding Indicator Light will
illuminate with the default Power Selection of 1400W which will also
appear in the Display Window.
To adjust the power level, press the +/- Buttons to select from the
following 8 settings:

IMPORTANT NOTES:
1. This Induction Cooktop will only operate with suitable Cookware. The
most common types are cast iron, enameled and stainless steel. The
Induction Cooktop will not operate when using aluminum, ceramic,
copper, glass or pyrex or cookware that has a concave bottom.
NOTE: Cookware should have a diameter no less than 10 cm (4”) or
more than 26 cm (10”) in order to work correctly. If the Cookware is
larger than the circular cookware placement guides indicated on the
Induction Cooktop, the area outside these guides will not work causing
an inconsistent heating pattern.
2. If the Induction cooker has been turned on without a compatible pot in
place the unit will beep for approximately 30 seconds, error code E1 will
be appear in the Display Window and the unit will shut off automatically.
3. When the unit is off, the fan may continue running until the temperature
of the Induction Cooktop is below 120°F (50°C)
4. NEVER heat empty cookware. This will cause the unit to overheat,
damage the cookware and/or cause the unit to shut off.

A short supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards of becoming
entangled in or tripping over a long cord. Extension cords may be used
if care is exercised in their use. If an extension cord is used, the marked
electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or extension cord
should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. If
the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a
grounded 3-wire cord. The extension cord should be arranged so that
it will not drape over the counter top or table top, where it can be pulled
on by children or tripped over.
