Cookware guidance

What pots to use
Only use pots and pans with bottom made from ferromagnetic material which are suitable for use with inductions hobs:

  • cast iron
  • enameled steel
  • carbon steel
  • stainless steel (although not all)
  • aluminium with ferromagnetic coating or ferromagnetic plate

To determine if a pot or pan is suitable, check for the symbol (usually stamped on the bottom). You can also hold a magnet to the bottom. If it clings to the underside, the cookware will work on an induction hob.

To ensure optimum efficiency, always use pots and pans with a flat bottom that distributes the heat evenly. If the bottom is uneven, this will affect power and heat conduction.

How to use

Minimum diameter of pot/pan base for the different cooking areas

To ensure that the hob functions properly, the pot must cover one or more of the reference points indicated on the surface of the hob, and must be of a suitable minimum diameter.

Always use the cooking zone that best corresponds to the diameter of the bottom of the pan.

Cooking zone Recommended cookware diameter [mm]
Front cooking zone 120-200
Rear cooking zone 120-200

Empty or thin-based pots/pans
Do not use empty or thin-based pots/pans on the hob as it will not be able to monitor the temperature or turn off automatically if the temperature is too high, damaging the pan or the hob surface. If this occurs, do not touch anything and wait for all components to cool down.
If an error message appears, refer to “Troubleshooting”.


Noise during cooking
When a cooking zone is active, it may hum briefly. This is a characteristic of all ceramic glass cooking zones and does not impair the function or life of the appliance. The noise depends on the cookware used. If it causes considerable disturbance, it may help to change the cookware.

Scratches or dark stains on the glass ceramic that cannot be removed do not affect the functioning of the appliance.

Removing the residues and stubborn residues:

  • Food containing sugar, plastics, tin foil residues should be removed at once, best tool for cleaning glass surface is a scraper (not included with the appliance).
