INDUCTION SURFACE COOKING
Be sure to follow the following recommendations for
using cookware as shown:
• Cookware not centered on
Cooking Zone surface.
• Curved or warped pan
bottoms or sides.
• Pan does not meet the
minimum size required for
the Cooking Zone used.
• Pan bottom rests on cook-
top trim or does not rest
completely on the cook-
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
ANY one of the incorrect conditions listed above in Fig. 1
may be detected by the sensors located below the ceramic
cooktop surface. If the cookware does not meet any of
these conditions, one or more of the Cooking Zones will
not heat indicated by a ﬂ ashing power level in the digital
display for that affected zone. Correct the problems before
attempting to reactivate the cooktop.
• Cookware centered cor-
rectly on Cooking Zone
• Flat pan bottom & straight
• Pan size meets or exceeds
the recommended minimum
size for the Cooking Zone.
• Pan rests completely on
the Cooktop surface.
• Pan is properly balanced.
Selecting Surface Cooking Cookware
The cookware used with the Induction Cooktop should have
ﬂ at bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface
of the Cooking Zone. Check for ﬂ atness by rotating a ruler
across the bottom of the cookware (See Fig. 2). Be sure to
follow all the recommendations for using cookware.
Also remember to:
• Use cookware made with the correct material type for
• Use quality cookware with heavier bottoms for better heat
distribution allowing for more even cooking results.
• The pan size should match the amount of food being
• Do not let pans boil dry. This may cause permanent
damage in the form of breakage, fusion, or marring that
can affect the ceramic cooktop. (This type of damage is
not covered by your warranty).
• Do not use dirty pans with grease buildup. Always use
pans that are easy to clean after cooking.
The Cooking Zones may appear to be cool while
turned ON and after they have been turned OFF. The
glass surface may be HOT from residual heat transferred
from the cookware and burns may occur.
DO NOT SLIDE Cookware across the cooktop surface.
Doing so may permanently damage the appearance of
the ceramic cooktop.
DO NOT TOUCH HOT COOKWARE or PANS directly
with hands. Always use oven mitts or pot holders to
protect hands from burns.
Prior to using your cooktop for the ﬁ rst time, apply the
recommended cooktop cleaning creme to the ceramic
surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or pad. This will
make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The special
cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective ﬁ nish on the
glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.
