Induction
Cooktop
Characteristics
A COOLER COOICroP- A unique feature of the Induction
Cooktop is whether turned ON or OFF, the cooktop surface
remains cooler than standard ceramic cooktops.
The Cooking Zones may appear to be cool whileturned
ON and afterthey have been turnedOFR The glass
surface may be HOTfrom residual heat transferred
from the cookware
and burns may occur.
MAGNETIC
DETECTOR-
The coil sensor automatically
detects whether the pan is magnetic and eliminates ac-
cidental "turn-On/'
PAN SIZE DETECTION
=The pan recognition sensor au-
tomatically
detects and adapts the Cooking Zones to the
pan sizes in use.
EFFICIENT-
Induction
cooking heats faster while using
less energy. Induction
power levels are quick to boil and
when simmering.
Use the Correct Cookware Type
The magnetic Cooking Zone sensors located below the
cooktop surface require the use of cookware made with
magnetic material in order to start the heating process on
any of the Cooking Zones.
When purchasing
pans, look for cookware
specifically
identified
by the manufacturer
for use with Induction
cooktops. If you are not sure, use a magnet to test whether
the cookware type will work. If a magnet sticks to the
bottom of the cookware, the material type is correct for
Induction cooking (See Fig. 1).
Selecting
Surface Cooking Cookware
The cookware used with the Induction Cooktop should have
flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface
of the Cooking Zone, Check for flatness by rotating a ruler
across the bottom of the cookware (See Fig, 2), Be sure to
follow all the recommendations
for using cookware.
Figure 2
Also remember
to:
- Use cookware made with the correct material type for
Induction Cooking.
- 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
prepared.
- 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.
Fig. 1
It is recommended
to always use heavier high quality
stainless
steel cookware
on your
Induction
Cooktop
surface. This will greatly reduce the possibility of developing
scratches on the ceramic surface.
Even quality cookware can scratch the cooktop surface,
especially if cookware
is slid over the ceramic cooktop
surface without being lifted up. Over time sliding ANY type
of cookware over the ceramic cooktop will likely alter the
overall appearance of the cooktop. Eventually the buildup
of scratches will make cleaning the surface difficult and
degrade the overall appearance of the cooktop.
• The Cooking Zones may appear to be cool while
turned ON and after they have been turned OFR 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 first 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 finish on the
glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.
