1 Introduction

This section introduces you to the concept of induction cooking.

1.1 What is Induction cooking?

Induction cooking, is a technology that heats a cooking vessel by magnetic induction – which in turn heats and cooks the food. This is because the

induction cooker is a powerful, high-frequency electromagnet. Induction cooker needs electricity to operate.

For more information on Electromagnet, refer to Glossary on page 13.

When a cooking vessel of magnetic material – for example, stainless steel or cast iron – is placed on the induction cooker, the combination produces a magnetic field. The magnetic field generated transfers (induces) energy into that cooking vessel. This transferred energy causes the cooking vessel to become hot.

Induction cooker is more energy-efficient, and provides faster and consistent heating.

1.2 How induction cooking works?

This section describes how induction cooking works.

Figure 1: How induction cooking works

In an induction cooker, a coil of copper wire (represented by red) is placed under the cooking plate of the cooker. The coil produces high-frequency electromagnetic field (represented by orange) when alternating electric current passes through it. For more information on Electromagnetic field,

refer to Glossary on page 13.

This resulting magnetic field interacts with the ferrous (magnetic material) cooking vessel, producing heat.

Heat generated in the cooking vessel is transferred to whats being cooked.

As soon as the cooking vessel is removed from the cooker, or the cooker is turned off, heat generation stops.

2.2 Special features

Portable: Compact design of the induction cooker makes it easy to move, which allows you to cook anywhere in your home.

Fast and consistent heating: The cooking vessel serves as the heat source in induction cooking, which results in much faster and more even heat transfer.

This effects in reduced cooking time as compared to conventional cooking.

User friendly: Easy-to-use digital controls with interactive control panel and 6 preset cooking modes makes your induction cooker quite user friendly.

Induction cooking is a smoke-free process and produces less grease. It also has easy-to-clean ceramic cooking plate.

For more information on Preset cooking modes, refer to page 10.

Soft touch control: Your induction cooker has soft touch buttons, which allows you to easily adjust the settings at the touch of a button.

Precision: Your induction cooker is highly responsive. It has a programmable

120 minute timer and you can also control the temperature.

Auto cooling: The fan in the induction cooker enables it to cool down very quickly.

Philips Induction Cooker HD4907 User Manual

Power efficient: Auto cut off mode and cool cooking plate means energy will not be wasted. Your induction cooker will automatically switch off, if it is accidentally left on or is left unattended for a long time. Also the induction cooker will only work if the cooking vessel is in contact with the cooking plate.

With no cooking vessel on the induction cooker, no heat will be produced. This means that there is no energy wastage. Also the induction cooker top (cooking plate) barely gets warm, except directly under the vessel, which means there is no wastage of heat.

Figure 2: Cooking plate heat distribution

Safety: As the induction cooker does not make use of open flame or fire, and the cooking plate always stays cool there is no fear of burned fingers or hands.

Safety features like auto cut off and auto cooling makes it safer to use this cooker.

Note: Be careful not to touch the utensil, as it gets hot when the induction cooker is operating, or you may burn your fingers or hand.

Figure 3: Cool cooking plate

Cookware compatibility and small object detector: Your induction cooker comes with a cookware compatibility detector and small object detector. If the cooking vessel is not compatible or it is smaller than recommended size, then the cooker will start beeping with 2 second intervals.

3 Before using your Induction

This section describes what you should keep in mind before using your induction cooker.

3.1 Important instructions

Read all instructions before operating.

Check if the voltage indicated on the induction corresponds to the local mains voltage before you connect the induction cooker.

Connection to an earthed wall socket is essential and mandatory.

Remove any protective film that may still be on your induction.

Use induction-compatible (suitable for induction cooker) cookware only.

For more information on Choosing the right cookware, refer to page 6.

Never leave metal objects (such as kitchen utensils) or empty pans on the cooking plate, as they can become hot very quickly.

Disconnect the induction cooker from the mains electricity supply before cleaning.

5

Philips Induction Cooker HD4907 User Manual

Never leave your induction cooker unattended when in use.

Do not block the air inlet and outlets while the induction cooker is operating.

Place it in a well ventilated, non-metal flat platform to prevent overheating.

Make sure cooking plate is clean, dry, and free from any foreign particles before you switch on induction cooker.

Do not touch the cooking plate after cooking, as it retains heat from cooking vessel.

Persons with cardiac pacemakers or similar medical implants must consult with their doctor or implant manufacturer before using the induction cooker to make sure that their implants will not be affected by the electromagnetic field.

Do not connect your induction cooker to an external timer.

Never use your induction cooking plate as work or storage surface. Do not place or drop heavy objects on induction.

Do not allow children to play with the induction.

Do not use the induction cooker if cooking plate, mains plug, or the appliance itself is damaged.

6 Glossary

Ceramic plate: A ceramic is a hard brittle material that is produced through burning of nonmetallic minerals at high temperature. So a plate made of this material is called a ceramic plate.

Electromagnet: An electromagnet is a magnet in which magnetic field is produced by an electric current. The magnetic field disappears when the current is turned off.

Electromagnetic field: An electromagnetic field is a physical field, produced when electric current passes through an electromagnet. The field always affects the behavior of objects having electric and magnetic components.

Enamelware: Enamelware are cooking utensils that have corrosion resistant layer enamel (opaque, glassy coating) fused to the surface.
