  • The sensors for the assisted cooking functions have been configured specifically for the recommended pans.
  • It is important to match the size of the pan to the size of the cooking zone.
  • Using pots/pans of the incorrect size or poorly positioning pans on the cooking zone may cause limited activation of the sensors.
  • Pots/pans from other manufacturers may not perform well. They may heat to a temperature above or below the programmed temperature setting. If using a pan that is not the recommended accessory, monitor your cooking process closely and switch to a manual mode if necessary.
  • Always keep the pot/pan centered on the element.
  • It is recommended to leave the accessory stationary during the heating phase in order to obtain a more accurate control.
  • Always wait for the acoustic warning before inserting the food and start from cold only with any seasoning.
  • In case of repeated cooking, it is advisable not to turn off the automatic function, but to continue cooking, letting the control maintain the correct temperature.
  • If possible, avoid using the assisted cooking functions when the letter “H” is present, which means the element is still hot. Let the element cool down before using this function again.
  • Your unit has a built in feature to shut itself off during over voltage conditions, water spillage on the touch control, empty pan, or for extended cooking durations. If this occurs, you may turn the burner back on and resume cooking without issue.
