Choosing the right Cookware
Do not use cookware with jagged edges or a curved base.
Make sure that the base of your pan is smooth, sits flat against the glass, and is
the same size as the cooking zone. Always centre your pan on the cooking zone.
Always lift pans off the ceramic hob – do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.
Using your Ceramic Hob
To start cooking
1. Place a suitable pan on the cooking zone that
you wish to use.
• Make sure the bottom of the pan and the surface
Of the cooking zone are clean and dry.
2. Adjust the power regulating control to the desired
level to turn on the control
Hot hob warning indicator
When the glass plate is hot, the hot hob warning indicator will
light. Don’t touch the glass plate until the indicator goes out.
It can also be used as an energy saving function if you want to
heat further pans, use the hotplate that is still hot.
When you have finished cooking
Turn the cooking zone off by turning the power
regulating control to “OFF“ to turn off the control.
Cooking Guidelines
Take care when frying as the oil and fat heat up very quickly, particularly
if you’re using PowerBoost. At extremely high termperatures oil and fat
will ignite spontaneously and this presents a serious fire risk.
Cooking Tips
• When food comes to the boil, reduce the temperature setting.
• Using a lid will reduce cooking times and save energy by retaining the heat.
• Minimise the amount of liquid or fat to reduce cooking times.
• Start cooking on a high setting and reduce the setting when the food has heated
Simmering, cooking rice
• Simmering occurs below boiling point, at around 85˚C, when bubbles are just
rising occasionally to the surface of the cooking liquid. It is the key to delicious
soups and tender stews because the flavours develop without overcooking the
food. You should also cook egg-based and flourthickened sauces below boiling
• Some tasks, including cooking rice by the absorption method, may require a
setting higher than the lowest setting to ensure the food is cooked properly in
the time recommended.
Searing steak
cook juicy flavoursome steaks:
Stand the meat at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.
Heat up a heavy-based frying pan.
Brush both sides of the steak with oil. Drizzle a small amount of oil into the hot
pan and then lower the meat onto the hot pan.
4. Turn the steak only once during cooking. The exact cooking time will depend
on the thickness of the steak and how cooked you want it. Times may vary
from about 2 – 8 minutes per side. Press the steak to gauge how cooked it is
– the firmer it feels the more ‘well done’ it will be.
5. Leave the steak to rest on a warm plate for a few minutes to allow it to relax
and become tender before serving.
For stir-frying
Choose an induction compatible flat-based wok or a large frying pan.
Have all the ingredients and equipment ready. Stir-frying should be quick. If
cooking large quantities, cook the food in several smaller batches.
Preheat the pan briefly and add two tablespoons of oil.
Cook any meat first, put it aside and keep warm.
Stir-fry the vegetables. When they are hot but still crisp, turn the cooking
zone to a lower setting, return the meat to the pan and add your sauce.
Stir the ingredients gently to make sure they are heated through.
Serve immediately.
Care and Cleaning
The settings below are guidelines only. The exact setting will depend on several
factors, including your cookware and the amount you are cooking. Experiment
with the cooktop to find the settings that best suit you.
