PORTABLE INDUCTION COOKTOP (1800 WATT)

How can I obtain better results with my Fagor Induction Cooktop?

Always place your cookware in the center of the burner. The cooktop is equipped with heating sensors that determine the temperature inside of the cookware. Placing the cookware in the center is necessary for a most accurate cooking performance.


The thicker the bottom of the cookware, the better cooking results you will obtain. Remember, induction cooking technology principals are based on magnetism. If the bottom of the cookware is substantial enough to have a strong magnetic bond with the cooktop elements, heat will be better-distributed; therefore allowing you to achieve better cooking results.


Always use cookware with a flat bottom surface. Cookware with a curved or deformed bottom will not make proper contact with the induction cooktop surface and will not allow for even heat distribution.


Pan Size Matters. The induction cooktop surface will not activate unless the pan placed on the cooktop is at least 5” to 10” in diameter.

What is the Noise/Vibration I hear?

During cooking, some cookware, especially pieces with a thin or non-uniformed bottomed surface, can emit a very low noise and vibration. In this case, there is no risk for the cooktop or for the cookware. However, cookware with a thick flat base will help to avoid such noise or vibration completely.

How do I clean/maintain my Induction Cooktop?

The surface is flat and smooth; spills and overflows do not stick to the cooktop, so they can easily be wiped away. We recommend you use either an ordinary porous sponge, damp soft cloth or special sponge for delicate items. Avoid cleaning the glass ceramic surface with abrasive materials or soaps in powder form as these detergents may scratch the surface.


To clean the casing and the operating panel, use a soft cloth or a mild detergent. Do not use any oil based cleansing products in order not to damage the plastic parts or the casing/operating panel. Make sure that water does not penetrate inside the induction cooktop and never immerse the induction cooktop, its cables or the plug into water or other liquids.


We also recommend you clean any sugar-based spills immediately and always use cookware after the exterior has been wiped dry, for better contact with your cooktop.

ELECTRIC MULTI-COOKER

How Safe is the Fagor Electric Multi-Cooker?

The Fagor Electric Multi-Cooker is perfectly safe and does not pose any risk for explosion. The lid will not open until all the steam has dissipated and pressure has been completely released.

How do I build pressure in my Fagor Electric Multi- Cooker?

In order for the Multi-Cooker to build pressure, the cooking liquid in the pot has to be brought to a boil with the lid positioned in place and the pressure regulator knob turned to “Pressure”. As the cooking liquid begins to boil, steam is produced. The trapped steam will build up and compress, creating pressure. As pressure builds, the pressure regulator valve will activate and release the right amount of steam to maintain the correct pressure within the cooker.

How do I know my Fagor Electric Multi-Cooker has come up to pressure?

The unit will begin to count down in minutes once the appropriate pressure has been reached. The floating valve will rise when pressure is reached.

How do I release the pressure from my Fagor Electric Multi-Cooker?

a) Natural release method: let the pressure drop naturally without turning the pressure regulator knob to “Steam”. This will take several minutes, during which the food inside will continue cooking. Some recipes benefit from this extra cooking time. You will know when the pressure has been released for the floating valve will drop and you will be able to open the lid.

b) Quick release method: release the pressure immediately by turning the pressure regulator knob to STEAM. All the pressure will be released in seconds. CAUTION: The steam coming out of the cooker will be hot, and might contain droplets of hot liquid. Always turn the jet of steam away from your face and hands. NOTE: If you do not press the START/STOP button at the end of the cooking time, the multi-cooker will beep periodically to remind you that the cooking ended.

Why doesn’t my Fagor Electric Multi-Cooker build up pressure?

There can be numerous reasons why pressure would not build up in your multi-cooker.

Reason: Not enough cooking liquid.
Solution: Always use a sufficient amount of cooking liquid for the type of food being prepared and the length of cooking. Consult the recipe you are following for the amount of liquid.

If you have not added sufficient liquid and you notice that the floating valve has not risen, but the timer is counting down, perform the following steps:

1. Stop the Multi-cooker by pressing the START/STOP button.

2. Turn the pressure regulator knob to STEAM, using short bursts, until the pressure is fully released.

3. Remove the lid and add approximately 1 cup of water/stock or any liquid. Stir food to disperse liquid.

4. Replace the lid and slide into position.

5. Press the LOW or HIGH PRESSURE button and set the desired time.

6. Press the START/STOP button to begin cooking again.

Reason: Pressure regulator valve is dirty and/or obstructed.

Solution: The pressure-regulator valve can become dirty when cooking. Remove the pressure regulator valve as shown in the manual and clean it under running water.

Reason: The gasket is:

· Not in place

· Improperly positioned

· Dirty

· Worn

Solution: Before using your Multi-Cooker, always check to make sure that the gasket is in place. Always check to see that the gasket is properly inserted before attempting to use the multi-cooker. The gasket should be removed from the lid and washed after each use. Refer to your instruction manual for care and maintenance tips. After continued use, gasket will begin to wear or dry out. It should be replaced at least once a year, or more often if the multi-cooker is used more frequently.

What do I do if my Fagor Electric Multi-Cooker needs to be repaired?

If repairs become necessary during the warranty period, please call our Customer Service at 1-800 207 0806

SLOW JUICER

What is the difference between a slow juicer and a traditional juicer?

With a Fagor Slow Juicer the juice is extracted from the food by carefully crushing and pressing the fruit twice before entering the glass rather than shredding and tearing the food. This helps to preserve more of the organic vitamins and nutrients in your juice. The Fagor Slow Juicer automatically separates the pulp from the juice, so there is no debris to clog the juicer. Slow Juicing allows you to consume more fruits and vegetables in one glass than you can eat at one time. The result is a more delicious, healthier glass of juice.

What kinds of vegetables and leafy greens can I juice in the slow juicer?

You can juice all leafy vegetables including kale, mint and wheatgrass.

Shall I remove the pits from the fruits?

It is not necessary to remove the pits of apples, oranges etc.; but you should remove all pits from cherries, peaches or any other fruit with a large pit which could damage the auger.

What can I do with the expelled food pulp?

You can use the expelled food pulp to cook or bake a variety of your favorite recipes. Please refer to your Slow Juicer DVD to view a few pulp recipes that we’ve suggested.

Can I put ice or frozen food in the machine?

You cannot put any ice or frozen fruits or vegetables into the slow juicer as it will damage the auger and the motor.

Should I peel the fruits or vegetables before juicing them?

It isn’t necessary to peel all fruits or vegetables before juicing. We recommend peeling fruits or vegetables with harder peels such as oranges, pineapples and watermelon, etc.

How often should I clean my slow juicer? – How easy is it to clean?

You should clean your slow juicer thoroughly after each use. Solely rinsing your slow juicer to switch juices will not clean the unit completely.

INDUCTION
36-INCH INDUCTION COOKTOP IFA-90 AL

Is my cookware induction compatible?

You need to use cookware that is induction compatible, which means that it has to be made of a ferromagnetic material or have inserts with magnetic properties.


Enameled iron, cast iron, most types of stainless steel, any kind of cookware with a magnetic bottom are all induction compatible. All Fagor cookware is induction compatible.


If you are unsure about your cookware, you can easily test if it is induction compatible. All you need is a magnet. If a magnet readily clings to the base of your cookware piece, that piece is induction compatible; if the magnet does not cling, or clings only very weakly, the piece is not suitable for induction cooking.


If your cookware is not currently induction compatible, there’s no need to go out and invest in a new set. Fagor America is offering a promotion for a FREE Cookware Set with the purchase of a built-in  induction cooktop in selected retailers available while supplies last. Please contact 1-800-207-0806 for details.

During cooking, some cookware, especially pieces with a thin or non-uniformed bottomed surface, can emit a very low noise and vibration. In this case, there is no risk for the cooktop or for the cookware. However, cookware with a thick flat base will help to avoid such noise or vibration completely.

How do I clean/maintain my Induction Cooktop?

The surface is flat and smooth; spills and overflows do not stick to the cooktop, so they can easily be wiped away. We recommend you use either an ordinary porous sponge or special sponge for delicate items. Avoid cleaning the glass ceramic surface with abrasive materials or soaps in powder form as these detergents may scratch the surface.


We also recommend you clean any sugar-based spills immediately and always use cookware after the exterior has been wiped dry, for better contact with your cooktop.
