Choosing your Utensils

To obtain a satisfactory performance from a ceramic hob and to avoid unnecessary
damage, we recommend the use of good quality saucepans with smooth flat bases.
Aluminium pans with coloured vitreous enamelled bases absorb heat and are therefore
more efficient in use. Almost equally as good are saucepans with a thick machined
aluminium base. If using enamelled steel or cast iron pans, ensure that they have good
smooth flat bases as otherwise the heat will not be distributed evenly and damaging heat
spots may be created.
Never use recessed or ridged base utensils. Ideally the base of saucepan should be
approximately the same size as the heating area, up to a maximum of 254mm (10").

WARNING: Extreme caution should be taken to avoid steam burns and hot
surfaces when cleaning up spillage to the hot hob.
1.
Always clean up any spillage immediately with a clean cloth or a paper towel to
avoid unnecessary damage to the hob.
2.
When cooking food which contains sugar (most food) or syrup, use a utensil which
is large enough to prevent boil over or spillage. Sugar spillage will permanently
damage the hob and therefore should be cleaned off with care immediately. If
sugar spillage has occurred, remove it as long as it is still hot with a metal handled
razor-blade scraper commercially available. This will avoid any damage. NEVER
LET IT COOL BEFORE REMOVING.
3.
Always ensure that the base of the utensil is dry before placing on the ceramic hob.
1. Purchasing a new pan will not necessarily mean it will have
a flat base, always check before buying.
2. Using the correct pans and utensils will result in maximum
contact with the hob and maximum efficiency as with any
type of electric hob.
