  • Page 8: The Ceramic Hob

    The ceramic hob The ceramic hob The ceramic hob has four cooking areas (heating zones). Even with the control still turned on during cooking, these areas may be seen to switch off and on at intervals, depend- ing partly on the heat setting used. This switching can also occur with the control turned to its maximum setting, to prevent overheating.

Here are some points to remember: • Check the pan bases. Bases which are convex (curve outwards) will tend to spin on the hob and will not conduct heat very well.
