Once any cooking zone has been

The HE will continue to display if the

The Cooking Zones may appear to be cool
while turned ON and after they have been

Setting "Power boost" feature
Your induction cooktop is equipped
with a Power Boost feature on
each cooking zone. The Power
Boost feature is used to bring large
quantities of water or food to cooking
temperature at the fastest speed
possible. The Power Boost feature will give you up
to 139% power output for a maximum of 10 minutes.
To Turn ON the Power Boost Feature:
- Turn on the cooking zone you want to set to
Power Boost then press the "+" key pad and the
"Pb" message will be shown in the display (Fig. 7).
When preheating a pan on the cooktop always watch
carefully. Whenever using the cooktop the user should
always pay attention to any items cooking and remain
attentive until the cooking process is complete.
Keep in mind that induction may decrease the amount
of time required to preheat the desired pan.
