The SmartZones are large. You may place several small pots on the SmartZone and they will be detected as if they were one large pot.

The whole of the SmartZone is activated when a pot is detected. This means that other magnetisable items (such as cutlery) sitting in the cooking zone will heat up. Never leave cutlery or other magnestisable items on your cooktop.
