Protecting the environment

Unpack the appliance and dispose of its packaging in such a
way that no damage is caused to the environment.
Environmentally-friendly disposal of waste
This appliance conforms to the Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment Directive WEEE 2002/96/EC.
This directive defines the framework for recycling used
appliances within European territory

Energy-saving advice

Always place the correct lid on the pan. Cooking with an
uncovered pan will result in a four-fold increase in energy

Induction cooking

Advantages of induction cooking

Induction cooking represents a radical change from the
traditional method of heating; the heat is generated directly in
the pan. It therefore offers a number of advantages:
Time savings for cooking and frying; since the pan is heated
Energy is saved.
Care and cleaning are simpler. Foods that have spilt do not
burn as quickly.
Heat and safety control; the hob supplies or cuts off power
immediately when the control knob is turned on. The
induction hotplate stops supplying heat if the pan is removed
without having previously switched it off.

Suitable pans

Ferromagnetic pans
Only ferromagnetic pans are suitable for induction cooking,
these may be made from:
enamelled steel
cast iron
EURO Appliances -
Immediately remove spilt food using a glass scraper.
Only use cleaning products specifically designed for glass-ceramic hobs.
Do not use the hob as a tray or working surface.
Check pans.
Only use cleaning products specifically produced for glass-ceramic hobs.
Lift pots and pans before moving them around.
Immediately remove spilt food using a glass scraper.
Use pans equipped with a solid, flat bottom. Curved pan
bases increase energy consumption.
The diameter of the pan base must coincide with the
diameter of the hotplate. This generally means the pan base
diameter is greater than that of the hotplate. If the diameter of
the pan is not the same as the diameter of the hotplate, it is
preferable to use a pan with a bottom that is larger in
diameter than the hotplate, otherwise half the energy will be
wasted. Please note: Whether the cookware manufacturer
has indicated the diameter of the top of the pan.
Choose pans of a size suited to the amount of food you are
going to cook. A large pan that is only half full will use a great
amount of energy.
Use a small amount of water when cooking. This saves
energy, and vegetables retain their vitamins and minerals.
Select a lower power level.
special cutlery for stainless steel induction pan
To determine whether a pan is suitable, check to see if a
magnet will stick to it.
Special induction pans
There is another type of pan specially made for induction, the
base of which is not entirely ferromagnetic. Check the diameter,
since this could affect detection of the pan, as well as the
cooking results.
Unsuitable pans
Never use pans made from:
common thin steel
Characteristics of the pan base
The characteristics of the pan base may affect the uniformity of
the cooking results. Pans made from materials which help
diffuse heat, such as stainless steel sandwich pans, distribute
heat uniformly, saving time and energy.
