Before Using the Cooktop
USE THE CORRECT COOKWARE TYPE ON THE
INDUCTION COOKING ZONES
Fig. 1
It is recommended to always use heavier high quality stainless steel cookware on your Induction Cooktop
surface. This will greatly reduce the possibility of developing scratches on the ceramic surface.
Even quality cookware can scratch the cooktop surface, especially if cookware is slid over the ceramic cooktop
surface without being lifted up. Over time sliding ANY type of cookware over the ceramic cooktop will likely alter
the overall appearance of the cooktop. Eventually the buildup of scratches will make cleaning the surface
difficult and degrade the overall appearance of the cooktop.

The magnetic Cooking Zone sensors located below the cooktop
surface require the use of cookware made with magnetic material in
order to start the heating process on any of the Cooking Zones.
When purchasing pans, look for cookware specifically identified by the
manufacturer for use with Induction cooktops. If your not sure, use a
magnet to test whether the cookware type will work. If a magnet sticks
to the bottom of the cookware, the material type is correct for Induction
cooking (See Fig. 1).
USE THE CORRECT SIZE COOKWARE - The 2 Induction Cooking
Zones available on the Cooktop require a MINIMUM pan size to be
used at each location (Fig. 2). The inner ring of each Cooking Zone
is your guide to the correct MINIMUM pan size. The pan bottom
must FULLY cover the inner ring for proper cooking to occur.
The thicker outer ring at each Cooking Zone is helpful to determine
the pan MAXIMUM size. After centering the cookware of the
cooktop, make sure the cookware does not extend more than ½"
beyond the thicker line on the Cooking Zone (See example in Fig. 2).
The pan must make FULL contact on the glass surface without the
bottom of the pan touching the metal cooktop trims (Shown in Fig.
2).
NOTE: If a pan made of the correct material is centered properly on
any of the active Cooking Zones but is TOO SMALL, the affected
Cooking Zone LED will display an
timer
F F F F F
code and the pan will not heat.
