HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
INDUCTION COOKING ZONES
For induction cooking zones a strong
electro-magnetic field creates the heat in
the cookware very quickly.
COOKWARE FOR INDUCTION
Use the induction cooking zones
with correct cookware.
• correct: cast iron, steel, enamelled
steel, stainless steel, the bottom made
of multi-layer (with correct mark from a
• not correct: aluminium, copper, brass,
glass, ceramic, porcelain.
Cookware is correct for an induction
hob if ...
• ... some water boils very quickly on a
zone set to the highest heat setting..
• ... a magnet pulls on to the bottom of
The bottom of the cookware
must be as thick and flat as possi-
USE OF THE COOKING
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
automatically. You can cook with the large
cookware on two cooking zones at the
THE NOISES DURING
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.
How to save energy
• If it is possible, always put the lids on
• 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
The cooking zone efficiency is related to
the diameter of the cookware . The cook-
ware with a smaller diameter than the
minimum receives only a part of the pow-
er generated by the cooking zone. For the
minimum diameters see the Technical da-
ÖKO TIMER (ECO TIMER)
To save energy, the heater of the
cooking zone deactivates before
the count down timer sounds. The
difference in the operation time
depends on the heat setting level
and the length of the cooking op-
THE EXAMPLES OF COOKING
The relation between the heat setting and
the cooking zone consumption of power
is not linear.
When you increase the heat setting it is
not proportional to the increase of the
cooking zone consumption of power.
