5. HINTS AND TIPS
Refer to Safety chapters.
For induction cooking zones
a strong electro-magnetic
field creates the heat in the
cookware very quickly.
Use the induction cooking
zones with correct cookware.
• correct: cast iron, steel, enamelled
steel, stainless steel, the bottom
made of multi-layer (with correct mark
from a manufacturer).
• not correct: aluminium, copper,
brass, glass, ceramic, porcelain.
Cookware is correct for an induction
• some water boils very quickly on a
zone set to the highest heat setting.
• a magnet pulls on to the bottom of
The bottom of the cookware
must be as thick and flat as
Induction cooking zones adapt to the
dimension of the bottom of the
cookware automatically to some limit.
The cooking zone efficiency is related to
the diameter of the cookware. The
cookware with a smaller diameter than
the minimum receives only a part of the
power generated by the cooking zone.

5.2 The noises during
If you can hear:
• crack noise: cookware is made of
different materials (sandwich
• whistle sound: you the cooking zone
with high power level and the
cookware is made of different
materials (sandwich construction).
• humming: you use high power level.
• clicking: electric switching occurs.
• hissing, buzzing: the fan operates.
The noises are normal and do not refer
to hob malfunction.
5.3 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
5.4 Examples of cooking
The relation between the heat setting
and the cooking zone consumption of
power is not linear. When you increase
the heat setting, it is not proportional to
