Before using your New Induction Hob

• Read this guide, taking special note of the ‘Safety Warnings’ section.
• Remove any protective film that may still be on your Induction hob.

Using the Touch Controls

• The controls respond to touch, so you don’t need to apply any pressure.
• Use the ball of your finger, not its tip.
• You will hear a beep each time a touch is registered.
• Make sure the controls are always clean, dry, and that there is no object (e.g. a utensil or a cloth)
covering them. Even a thin film of water may make the controls difficult to operate.

Choosing the right Cookware

• Only use cookware with a base suitable for induction cooking. Look for the induction symbol on the packaging or on the bottom of the pan.

See other models: HWO60S4MX1 HWO60S11TPX1 HWO60S10TX1 HWO60S7EX1 HOR54B5MGW1
• You can check whether your cookware is suitable by carrying out a magnet test. Move a magnet towards the base of the pan.
If it is attracted, the pan is suitable for induction.
• If you do not have a magnet:
1. Put some water in the pan you want to check.
2. If “” does not flash in the display and the water is heating, the pan is suitable.
• Cookware made from the following materials is not suitable: pure stainless steel, aluminium or copper without a magnetic base, glass, wood, porcelain, ceramic, and earthenware.

Do not use cookware with jagged edges or a curved base.
Make sure that the base of your pan is smooth, sits flat against the glass, and is the same size as the cooking zone. Use pans whose diameter is as large as the graphic of the zone selected.Using a pot a slightly wider energy will be used at its maximum efficiency.If you use smaller pot efficiency could be less than expected.Pot less than 140 mm could be undetected by the hob.
Always centre your pan on the cooking zone.
Always lift pans off the Induction hob – do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.

To start cooking

1. Power On

When the mains power supply is switched on, the buzzer beeps once and all the indicators light up for 1 second, then go out. This indicates that the ceramic hob has entered standby mode.
When the hob is in the standby mode all the indicator lights do not shine, all the controls are disable except the “ON/OFF” and “keylock” control.

Cooking Guidelines

Take care when frying as the oil and fat heat up very quickly. At extremely high termperatures oil and
fat will ignite spontaneously and this presents a serious fire risk.

Heat Settings
The settings below are guidelines only. The exact setting will depend on several factors, including your cookware and the amount you are cooking. Experiment with the induction hob to find the settings that best suit you.

Heat setting Suitability
1-2 ● Delicate warming for small amounts of food
● Melting chocolate, butter, and foods that burn quickly
● Gentle simmering ● Slow warming
3-4 ● Reheating ● Rapid simmering ● Cooking rice
5-6 ● Pancakes
7-8 ● Cooking pasta
9 ● Stir-frying ● Searing ● Bringing soup to the boil ● Boiling water

Care and cleaning
