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.
