Energy saving
For optimum results, it is advisable to:
• Use pots and pans with bottom width equal to that of the cooking zone.
• Only use flat-bottomed pots and pans.
• If possible, keep potlids on when cooking (except foruse in “SENSOR“ mode).
• Cook vegetables, potatoes, et. with little water in order to cut down cooking time.
• Use a pressure cooker to save even more energy and time (do not use pressure cookers with the “SENSOR“ function).
• Place the pot in the middle of the cooking zone marked on the hob.
- This appliance, intended to come into contact with food products, complies with Regulation ( ) no. 1935/2004, and has been designed, manufactured and
marketed in conformity with the safety requirements of “Low Voltage“ Directive 2006/95/EC (replacing 73/23/EEC as amended) and protection requirements of
“EMC“ Directive 2004/108/EC.
Use a magnet to check if the pot is suitable for the induction hob: pots and pans are unsuitable if not magnetically detectable.
- Make sure pots have a smooth bottom, otherwise they could scratch the hob. Check dishes.
- Never place hot pots or pans on the surface of the hob’s control panel. This could result in damage.
IMPORTANT: The cooking zones will not switch on if pots are not the right size. Only use pots bearing the symbol “INDUCTION SYSTEM“ (Figure
opposite). Place the pot on the required cooking zone before switching the hob on.
