Operating induction cooking zones

Start most surface cooking on a higher setting and then
adjust to a lower setting to finish cooking.
The suggested settings (provided in Fig. 1) may vary slightly
depending on the cookware design, quality and amount of
food being prepared.
Be sure to use quality cookware that is constructed with
magnetic base material and meets the minimum and
maximum pan size requirements.

needed for best surface cooking results.

type of food being cooked will influence the setting
needed for best cooking results.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

To operate induction cooking zones:
Step
1. Place induction cookware with food
on the desired cooking zone.
2. To activate the cooking zone
press and hold the on-off
for the desired position
until a tone sounds.
3. Set the power level.
Press lo, med (5.0) or hi.
Each touch of the lo or hi pad will
decrease or increase the power
level by .5 increments from 9.5
through 3.0. Simmer power levels
between 3.0 and 1.2 will decrease
or increase by .2 increments.
lo is the lowest power level available.
4. Once cooking is complete, press
on-off and then remove cookware.
CAUTION
• Unlike radiant surface elements, the induction
cooking zones will not glow red when they are hot.
The glass surface may be hot from residual heat
transferred from the cookware and burns may occur.
• Do not touch hot cookware or pans directly with
hands. Always use oven mitts or pot holders to protect
hands from burns.
• The cooking zones may appear to have cooled after
they have been turned OFF. The glass surface may
still be hot from residual heat and burns may occur
if the cooktop is touched before it has cooled
sufficiently.
• Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt
and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on the cooktop when it is in use. These
items could melt or ignite if placed too close to hot
cookware.
