Cookware guidance

Warning! Refer to Safety chapters.

What pots to use

Only use cookware which is suitable for induction hobs. The cookware must be made of a ferromagnetic material, such as:

  • cast iron;
  • enamelled steel;
  • carbon steel;
  • stainless steel (most types);
  • aluminium with ferromagnetic coating or a ferromagnetic plate.

To determine if a pot or pan is suitable, check for the symbol (usually stamped on the bottom of the cookware). You can also hold a magnet to the bottom. If it clings to the underside, the cookware will work on the induction hob.

To ensure optimum efficiency, always use pots and pans with a flat bottom that distributes the heat evenly. If the bottom is uneven, this will affect power and heat conduction.

How to useMinimum diameter of pot/pan base for the different cooking areasTo ensure that the hob operates properly, the cookware must have a suitable minimum diameter as well as cover one or more of the reference points indicated on the surface of the hob.Always use the cooking zone that best corresponds to the diameter of the bottom of the cookware.

Empty or thin-based pots/pansDo not use empty pots/pans or cookware with thin bases on the hob as it will not be able to monitor the temperature, or will turn off automatically if the temperature is too high. This may result in damage of the cookware or the hob surface. If such a situation occurs, do not touch anything and wait for all components to cool down.If an error message appears, refer to “Troubleshooting”.Hints / tipsNoises during cookingWhen a cooking zone is active, it may hum briefly. This is characteristic of all ceramic glass cooking zones and does not impair either the function or the life of the appliance. The noise depends on the cookware used. If it causes a considerable disturbance, it might help to change the cookware.

Care and cleaning

General informationWarning! Switch off the appliance and let it cool down before you clean it.Warning! For safety reasons, do not clean the appliance with steam blasters or high-pressure cleaners.Warning! Sharp objects and abrasive cleaning agents will damage the appliance. Clean the appliance and remove the residues with water and dish soap after each use. Remove also the remnants of the cleaning agents.

Scratches or dark stains on the glass-ceramic that cannot be removed do not affect the functioning of the appliance.

Removing the residues and stubborn residues

Food containing sugar, plastics, or tin foil residues should be removed at once. A scraper is the best tool for cleaning the glass surface. It is not supplied with the appliance. Place a scraper on the hob surface at an angle and remove residues by sliding the blade over the surface. Clean the appliance using a damp cloth and some dish soap. Finally, wipe the glass surface dry with a clean cloth.

Limescale rings, water rings, fat splashes, or shiny metallic discolorations should be removed after the appliance has cooled down. Use only a specialized cleaner for glass ceramic or stainless steel.


Warning! Refer to Safety chapters.
