3 - USE OF VITROCERAMIC HOB
The ceramic surface of the hob allows a fast transmission of heat in the vertical direction,
from the heating elements underneath the ceramic glass to the pans set on it .
The heat does not spread in a horizontal direction, so that the glass stays "cool" at only a
few centimeters from the cooking plate .
The cooking zones are shown by painted disks on the ceramic surface .
Before switching on the cooktop make sure that it is clean .
The heating elements incorporate a thermolimiter that switches the element ON/OFF
during all settings to protect the ceramic glass from overheating .
The use of incorrect pans and/or wrong pan positioning will cause the temperature limiter
to operate more frequently, resulting in a reduction of cooking performance .
The temperature limiter can be seen under the glass dissecting the element . This is not a
fault with the appliance .
"HI-LIGHT" RADIANT ZONES
The heating element (fig. 3.2) is formed of a coil of resistant material which reaches the
working temperature quickly .
Operation of the cooking zone is controlled by a continuous energy regulator from 1 to 12
(maximum temperature) (fig. 3.1).
The knob and symbols may vary.
Do not cover the hob with aluminium
