Induction cooking is quite different from traditional forms of
cooking. The heat is generated directly in the pan, keeping the
cooking surface cooler than a traditional element.
Induction cooking does not lose as much heat as traditional
forms because all the heat is created in the pan itself.
The cooktop heats up or cools down quickly after the controls
are set. It also stops heating when the pan is removed without
turning off the power.
Food spilled on the cooktop surface will not burn because the
glass is not heated. Induction cooking allows for immediate
cleaning after use because the heat is created in the pan.
Pan size, material (see "Cookware" section), and positioning
are
very important to achieve maximum wattage.
The diameter of the pan's base should be equal to the size of the
element.
If the pan is too small, the burner does not sense the pan and will
not activate.
Fire Hazard
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
For maximum surface cooking power, all cooktop touch-
activated electronic controls can be set to Performance Boost
function when bringing liquids to a fast and rapid boil. Touch
BOOST to immediately reach the highest setting.
NOTE: This cooktop will also work with a 208V operation where
240V installation is not available.
First Use or After a Power Failure:
After connecting the cooktop to an electrical power supply or
after a power failure, the control panel will be locked. An indicator
light above the key icon will be on. To unlock the control panel,
press and hold CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds. The indicator
light will turn off, and the cooktop is ready for use.
The touch-activated
electronic controls offer a variety of heat
settings for optimal cooking results. When melting foods such as
chocolate or butter, the surface cooking area can be set to the
Melt function for minimal cooking power.
