FAQs

What is induction? How does it work?

In induction hobs, the inductor of the electromagnetic source generates intense heat directly into the kitchen vessel, not over the glass as in ceramic worktops. This is achieved by generating a variable electric current through a conductor, which creates a variable magnetic field as well, capable of inducing electric current into a second conductor, the kitchen vessel, without affecting, contrary to ceramic glass, any other type of material at all.

What is Power mode? How can I use it?

Power or extra potency mode allows you to increase the selected induction hob total heating power by up to 35% for a total time of 10 minutes. It is perfect for quick boiling recipes, intense meat browning or quick liquid heating (water, milk, soup...). Power mode can be activated or deactivated anytime. The Power mode, featured in induction hobs, takes precedence over Heat Stroke function; therefore, if Power mode is being used, heat Stroke will be cancelled in those induction hob areas.

When using power mode, if I turn the hob behind on, the function pilot light flickers and switches off. Is this normal?

This is completely normal. If we utilize Power mode while turning the hob behind on at the same time, this function will switch off. This happens because Power mode is a combination of the potency delivered by those two hobs, and to be able to perform it the hob it takes its additional power from must be off.

Does induction work with 90 mm. / 3.54 inch diameter steel bottom coffee pots?

In principle, 90 mm / 3.54 inch diameter steel bottom coffee pots could be used in all 145 mm. / 5.70 inch hobs, as they would recognize the diameter, therefore being able to be utilized as coffee-making areas. NOTE: A 90 mm. / 3.54 inch size is the smallest available in the market, and should be detected in all 145 mm. / 5.70 inch hobs.

When removing the cooking vessel from the induction hob, it flickers and switches off, is this normal?

Induction hobs are designed to detect if a vessel is placed over their surface, so when removed the hob switches off for safety purposes.

When the worktop is on, a click/hum can be heard, is this normal?

Induction heating technology is based on the creation of electromagnetic fields which make the heat to be generated at the base of the cooking vessel. These vessels, depending on the materials used in their manufacture, can cause certain noises or vibration. This is completely usual and does not indicate any type of malfunctioning. These nuances can be also due to moist under the vessel.

How do I clean my induction hob? When do I clean it? What kind of products should I use?

Cleaning must be performed with a clean, wet soapy cloth (preferably a ceramic hob dedicated product). Let the product react for some time and then remove the dirt by rubbing a cloth. Remove the food scraps spilt over the cooking surface, especially those high in sugar, right away with the help of a glass scraper. NEVER perform this operation with items such as steel wools or chemical, abrasive products.

What shall I do to save energy when cooking with my induction worktop?

- Use pots and pans featuring a thick, flat bottom. Those with irregular bottoms prolong cooking time needlessly. - Always use adequate size cooking vessels, proportional to the amount of food going to be prepared. A big-sized, half-full vessel demands quite a lot of energy to perform. - Use the lids provided with the vessels. This way temperature loss will be avoided.

What kind of precautions shall I take when using an induction worktop?

Pot and pans must not have rough bottoms, as they can damage the hobs. No recipe must be prepared into plastic or aluminium foils or containers (or any other kind of cooking vessel with aluminium bottom). This can cause damage over the ceramic glass surface and to the vessel, and result in loss of guarantee. Pot and pan bottoms, as well as cooking surfaces, must be clean and dry before use.

What kind of cooking vessels should I use along with my induction worktop?

In principle, any cooking vessel featuring a magnetisable bottom shall be appropriate for induction cooking.
