2. Use
Using the hob
The induction cooking system is based on the physical
phenomenon of magnetic induction. The main characteristic of
this system is the direct transfer of energy from the generator
to the pot.
When compared to electric hobs, your induction hob is:
- Safer: lower temperature on the glass surface.
- Faster: shorter food heating times.
- More accurate: the hob immediately reacts to your
- More efficient: 90% of the absorbed energy is transformed
into heat. Moreover, once the pot is removed from the hob,
heat transmission is immediately interrupted, avoiding
unnecessary heat losses.
2.1 Cooking containers
Use only pots bearing the symbol
to avoid permanent damage to the hob surface, do not use:
- containers with less than perfectly flat bottoms.
- metal containers with enamelled bottoms.
- containers with a rough base, to avoid scratching the hob
- never place hot pots and pans on the surface of the hob's
control panel
2.1.1 Pre-existing containers
Induction cooking uses magnetism to generate heat.
Containers must therefore contain iron. Check if the pot
material is magnetic using a magnet. Pots are not suitable if
they are not magnetically detectable.
2.1.2 Recommended pan bottom diameters
IMPORTANT: if the pots are not correctly sized, the
cooking zones will not turn on
For details of the pot diameter that needs to be used on each
zone, see the illustrated part of this manual.
2.2 Energy saving
Recommendations for best results:
- Use pots and pans with a bottom diameter equal to that of
the cooking zone.
- Use only pots and pans with flat bottoms.
- Where possible, keep the lid on pots during cooking
- Cook vegetables, potatoes, etc. with a small amount of water
to reduce cooking time.
- Use a pressure cooker, it further reduces the energy
consumption and cooking time
- Place the pot in the centre of the cooking zone drawn on the
Using the extractor fan
The extraction system can be used in two versions: external
extraction and evacuation or as a filter with internal
Extraction version
The fumes are evacuated towards the outside through a
series of pipes (bought separately) fastened to the supplied
connecting flange.
The diameter of the exhaust pipe must be equivalent to the
diameter of the connecting ring:
- for rectangular outlets 222 x 89 mm
- for circular outlets Ø 150 mm (*)
For more information, see the page relative to the extraction
version in the illustrated part of this manual.
Connect the product to wall-mounted exhaust pipes and holes
with a diameter equivalent to the air outlet (connecting flange).
Using wall-mounted exhaust pipes and holes with a smaller
diameter may reduce the efficiency of extraction and
drastically increase noise levels.
All responsibility in this regard is therefore denied.
Use ducting with the minimal indispensable length.
Use ducting with the least possible number of curves
(maximum angle: 90°).
Avoid drastic changes in the ducting diameter.
Filtration version
Fig. 8
The extracted air will be filtered in special grease filters and
odour filters before being sent back into the room.
The product is supplied with all parts necessary for standard
installation, with the air outlet positioned in the front part of the
cabinet plinth.
Four high-performance ceramic activated carbon filter packs
are already supplied with the product. Ceramic filters are
innovative modular carbon filters, which are regenerating (see
the Maintenance - Activated carbon filters section of this
Their chemical-physical properties allow extremely efficient
odour absorption and high mechanical resistance.
For more information, see the page relative to the filtration
version (in the illustrated part of this manual).
