True Induction 1 Double Burner Induction Cooktop

Cooktop Installation

Dimensions and Placement for Cut-out in Countertop

  • Cut a rectangle hole in the countertop where the cook top is to be placed. The dimensions for the cut-out are 22″ x 14 1/4″
  • The cut-out must be placed at least 2 1/2″ from any side of the countertop.
  • To achieve flush mounting installation, use a router tool to round the corners of the holeincutot the countertop.

  • First feed the power wire through the hole and to the location of the power receptacle underneath the cabinet.
  • The ‘h” overhang on the induction cooker comes with pre-installed foam gasket. Peel off the adhesive protector on the bottom of the gasket and set the induction cooker into the cut-out. Gently press down on the induction cook top to secure the adhesive gasket to the countertop. The cook top should be sitting on the supports previously installed.
  • For RV use, apply butyl tape instead of the supplied foam tape. Butyl tape will provide adequate adhesion and still allow for removal if the unit needs to be serviced.

Clearance Needed for Air Circulation

  • Below you will see a diagram of the air flow. Be sure not to block either the intake or exhaust
  • For proper air circulation, allow at least 3″ of clearance from the bottom of the induction cooker to any shelving or storage. The underside of the countertop should not be closed off from the cabinetry underneath for better air flow.

Important Safety Information

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed. For the True Induction cooker, even with built-in safety features, it is essential to heed all precautions:

  • When the unit is on, do not touch outside the control panel as the surface may contain residual heat.
  • To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord plugs or cooker in water (or other liquid substances).
  • When using any electric appliance used around children, close supervision is strongly suggested.
  • Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, after a malfunction or if it has been damaged in any manner. Read the seller’s guidelines for warranty repairs and returns.
  • Do not cook on a broken or damaged cooktop as spillovers may penetrate the surface and create a risk of electric shock.
  • To avoid potential injury, do not use accessory attachments which aren’t recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Do not let the cord dangle over the edge of the table or counter. Keep the cord away from hot surfaces.
  • Do not place cooktop on or near: hot gas, electric burner or heated oven.
  • To prevent accidents and achieve optimal fan ventilation, allow for sufficient space around the cooking area.
  • Items with a magnetic field such as: radios, televisions, credit cards, cassette tapes etc., can affect the unit.
  • The power cord provided has been sized accordingly, however, with caution and care extension cords may be used.a. The marked electrical rating should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.b. The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
  • Do not use with empty pans/pots.
  • Do not place metallic objects such a knives, forks, spoons, lids, cans or aluminum foil on the cooktop.
  • To prevent accidents and achieve optimal ventilation, allow for sufficient space around the cooking area.
  • This appliance has a polarize plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, the plug will fit on the outlet only one way. If the prongs do not fit fully, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact the seller for warranty support; do not attempt to modify the plug in anyway.
  • To properly turn off unit press the Power button.
  • It is important to be aware that the unit’s surface will remain hot for a short period of time after use.
  • Disconnect power and allow to cool before performing any maintenance or repairs.
  • Clean cooktop with caution – do not clean while unit is still hot, some cleaners produce steam or fumes if applied to a heated surface.
  • Do not use cooktop for any other use then directed by the manufacturer.

Power Invariance Technology

The maximum power of an individual burner level is at setting 10. But, when operating both burners their combined total is level 14, meaning that when operating the two burners at the same time they’ll self adjust levels accordingly:

  • When you increase the power of one side, the power output of the other side will reduce automatically (i.e., one side is at 6, the other burner automatically reduces power to level 8 creating a total of max 14 setting).
  • If one side of the double burner is using the HEAT function and the other side uses the TEMP settings, the maximum HEAT setting is “9.”

Compatible Cookware

Induction requires pots and pans that are made of ferrous (meaning magnetic) materials. Check your cookware’s retail box for the induction symbol. To tell if your current cookware is compati-ble with the induction technology, grab a magnet and see if it holds. If your magnet stays then your cookware is ready to be used on the True Induction double burner induction portable cooktop!

Optimal cookware has a flat bottom and a diameter of 4.72″-10.24″ inches. Round, flat bottom pans give the best results. Pans with warped or curved bottoms will not heat evenly. For wok cooking, use a flat-bottom wok. Do not use a wok with a support ring. Look for this induction image on the retail box:

The following are NOT COMPATIBLE:Heat-resistant glass, ceramic, copper, aluminum pan/pots, round bottomed cookware, or cookware with a base less than 4.72 inches.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Please follow these directions along with important safety steps for cleaning advised at the beginning of the manual:

  • Before cleaning always switch OFF the device and wait for it to be completely cool. Clean the unit after each use to remove food residues.
  • Wipe off the glass-ceramic plate and the plastic surface with a slightly damp cloth (mico-fiber works best). Dishwashing soap may be used when necessary.
  • Make sure that no water seeps into the device. Never use abrasive cleaners (i.e. metal pads) or oil-based liquids. Never run the cooktop under water.
  • A vacuum cleaner attachment may be used to suck up dirt from the air intake and exhaust vent.
