Use of electric plates
To switch on the plate, turn the relevant knob to the required position. The plates are regulated by a 7 position switch: Position 0: off Position 1: minimum disbursement of heat Position 6: maximum disbursement of heat The hob is fitted with a residual heat indicator which comes on to indicate that the cooking zone is switched on.The indicator will remain on even after the cooking zone is switched off, until the hob has cooled down. Children should be kept away until this indicator switches off. Suggestions for the correct setting of the cooking zones are given in the following table. Position 1 2 Melting butter, chocolate, Simmering vegetables, or fish in its own juice, simmering potatoes or soups Boiling large quantities of food, stews and soups Slow frying, making a roux Fast frying of meat or fish Rapid heating up of fat or water
Using the plate correctly
Saucepans and frying pans (Fig.2) - Saucepans and frying pans should not be smaller than the cooking zone, and preferably not more than 10-15 mm larger than the diameter of the cooking zone. Always use cooking and frying utensils with smooth, flat bottoms. - The bottoms should always be clean and dry. Cook with a lid in place. Check that the bases of utensils are smooth and undamaged; bases with burrs and sharp edges will scratch the ceramic glass surface. - To avoid scratching or damaging the ceramic cooking surface, pots and pans should be moved on the plate by lifting them, and not by sliding. Utensils with aluminium and copper bases can leave behind metallic discolorations which can only be removed with difficulty or sometimes not at all. Energy consumption:To save energy, you should: use only cooking and frying utensils with smooth, flat bottoms. place pots and pans in position before switching on the cooking zone. wherever possible, cover pots and pans with a lid. switch off the cooking zone a few minutes before the end of the cooking time, in order to make use of the residual heat. use the residual heat of the cooking zones for keeping food warm or for melting. position pots and pans centrally on the cooking zones. Never use the ceramic hob as a working space. Do not store things on the ceramic hob. Never use plastic or aluminium foil dishes on the ceramic hob, as they could melt on the hob, thus damaging it.
