4.2 Use of the cooking zones
Put the cookware on the cross which is on
the surface that you cook. Cover the cross
fully. The magnetic part of the bottom of
the cookware must be 125 mm minimum.
Induction cooking zones adapt to the di-
mension of the bottom of the cookware au-
tomatically. You can cook with the large
cookware on two cooking zones at the
4.3 The noises during operation
If you can hear
• crack noise: cookware is made of differ-
ent materials (Sandwich construction).
• whistle sound: you use one or more
cooking zones with high power levels
and the cookware is made of different
materials (Sandwich construction).
• humming: you use high power levels.
• clicking: electric switching occurs.
• hissing, buzzing: the fan operates.
The noises are normal and do not refer
to appliance malfunction.
4.4 Energy saving
How to save energy
Keep warm the food
melt: butter, chocolate,
Solidify: fluffy omelettes,
• If it is possible, always put the lids on the
• Put cookware on a cooking zone before
you start it.
• Use the residual heat to keep the food
warm or to melt it.
The cooking zone efficiency is related to
the diameter of the cookware . The cook-
ware with a smaller diameter than the mini-
mum receives only a part of the power
generated by the cooking zone. For the
minimum diameters see the Technical data

4.6 The Examples of cooking
The relation between the heat setting and
the cooking zone consumption of power is
When you increase the heat setting it is not
proportional to the increase of the cooking
zone consumption of power.
It means that the cooking zone with the
medium heat setting uses less than a half
of its power.

The cooking zone efficiency
To save energy, the heater of the
cooking zone deactivates before
the count down timer sounds. The
difference in the operation time de-
pends on the heat setting level and
the length of the cooking operation.
