Using your induction cooktop

Control dials

Each cooking zone is activated by a separate control dial positioned on the control panel. The functions are arranged on the actual dial itself.

If a cooking zone is not turned off (‘0’ position) the electronic system automatically switches it off after a pre-set time ranging from 90 minutes to 6 hours, depending on the power setting.

Power level

Turn the dial clockwise to set the desired power level between 1 (minimum) and 9 (maximum). The power level can be modified at any time by turning the dial clockwise or anti-clockwise to a different setting.
The cooking zone display shows the selected level.

Hot Surface Indicator

When the temperature of a cooking zone is still hot, the relevant Hot Surface indicator Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 1.20.45 PM.png lights up on the display to alert you of the hot surface. Avoid touching the cooktop surface over the cooking area. Please pay special attention to children. When the Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 1.20.45 PM.png is lit on the display, it is still possible to start cooking again; just turn the control dial to the required power level. The indicator will disappear when the surface has cooled down to a safe temperature.


When not using the induction cooktop, set the Childlock to prevent children from accidentally switching on the cooking zones.
Ensure all cooking zones are switched Off (‘0’ position), then turn the control dials of the left cooking zones simultaneously to the left (‘A’ setting) and hold the dials in this position until Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 1.20.59 PM.png lights up on the cooking zones display; then release the dials.
To deactivate the childlock repeat the same procedure until the Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 1.20.59 PM.png goes out; then release the dials.
