USING THE ELECTRIC GRIDDLE WARNING

The griddle element is hot after use. Allow sufficient time for griddle components cool before cleaning. The electric griddle elements are rated 120 volts AC 2x400 watts.

Use

There are 2 control knobs for selecting the griddle zones( Fig.15-16), one for front heating zone selected and one for rear heating zone selected.

You can select the whole griddle zone, or only the front or rear zone. Press and turn the knob anti-clockwise to the selected position (Fig.15-16)

Pre-heat at the maximum temperature, ( 7 position) for 15 minutes, then place the food on the griddle and cook to the desired temperature.

The activation of the griddle is shown by the indicator light.

Each heating zone can be operated alone or in combination with the other one.

If only one heating zone is used, the griddle will be heated at different levels : in this way the heated part will be very hot for cooking and the other part will be anyhow warm to keep food at warming temperature. This will then allow to move food continuosly over the griddle to benefit of different tmperatures.

Adjust the temperature by selecting also different power levels.

In order to obtain the same temperature all over the griddle operate the two heating zones at the same power level..

Seasoning the griddle

Before using the griddle for the first time, it must be seasoned.

If the griddle has not been used for a period of time, it should be reseasoned.

To season the gridlle:

1.clean the griddle thoroughly with hot, soapy water to remove any protective coating.

2.rinse with a mixture of 1 quart water and 1 cup white vinegar. Dry thoroughly.

3.Pour 1 teaspoon vegetable oil into the center of the griddle. Do not use corn oil as it gets sticky. Rub the oil over the entire surface of the griddle using a heavy cloth.

4.Turn the control knob to a maximum setting (7). Turn the heat off when the oil begins to smoke. Allow the griddle to cool.

5.Repeat step 3. Be sure to cover the entire surface with the oil

6.Repeat step 4. Allow the griddle to cool. Wipe the entire surface of the griddle using a heavy cloth. Apply a very thin layer of vegetable oil. The griddle is now ready to use.

Using the ceramic induction elements

Safety Precautions - Read before operating your cooktop

Your induction-cooking unit has been designed for residential use and food preparation, and all of the safety parameters have been designed accordingly.

The unit incorporates numerous safety devices and controls, a few of which will be mentioned below:

- A number of sensors monitor the temperature of the internal components. If any of these sensors senses that the component temperature is above the limit, the power output of the unit will automatically be reduced, allowing the component to cool down. Once this is achieved, the unit will continue to operate normally at the output level set initially by the operator..

-Each induction element is equipped with a sensor which is continuously monitoring the temperature of the bottom of the pan to prevent the pan from overheating.

-Each induction element is equipped with a pan sensing device. This device will not allow the element to turn on unless it senses an induction-compatible pot or pan on the element covering enough surface area. If no pot/pan is detected, the digital display will flash indicating that there is no power on the element. Once an induction-compatible piece of cookware is sitting properly on the element, the digital display will become steady, and the cookware will start heating up. Note that a small object as a fork, a spoon, a piece of jewelry, etc. will not be mistaken for a cooking utensil, and it will not trigger this sensor. Moreover, this device will distinguish between pots and pans which are and are not suitable for induction cooking.

If a piece of cookware, which is not suitable for induction cooking, is placed on an element, there will be no power output on the element.

We reserve the right to make any changes to internal components, as well as, to make any (cosmetic) modifications on the outside in an effort to improve our products.

Users with pacemakers or defibrilators must consult with their pacemaker manufacturer or their physician prior to using this cooktop which incorporates an induction heating source.

If a crack appears in the glass surface, disconnect the unit immediately to avoid any risk of electric shock. If the unit is connected directly to supply inside a junction box, then disconnect its breaker, or remove fuses manually.

Do not use your cooktop until the glass top has been replaced.

When cooking, never use aluminum foil, never place products wrapped in aluminum foil or products deepfrozen in aluminum packs on the cooktop.

Aluminum foil could melt and damage the vitroceramic glass beyond repair.

The Principle of Induction

When an induction element, also called: ‘a heating zone’ or simply: ‘a coil’ - is switched on, the appropriate piece of cookware used, and a desired level of heating power selected, the electronic circuit unit (‘induction generator’ or ‘inverter’) powers up the induction element which creates a magnetic field. This magnetic field continuously changes in terms of frequency and intensity, and this creates induced ‘eddy’ currents in the bottom of the pot or pan and ultimately results in heat. The heat is transferred directly to the food being cooked.

Thus, induction heat makes the cookware a direct source of heat, featuring high level of efficiency with extremely low energy loss and unparalleled heating level control.

With induction cooking there is very little ‘heating inertia’. Induction cooking elements do not incorporate a heat generating element, unlike convectional electric rings, halogen or radiant elements etc, therefore, heat levels can be changed very quickly.

For induction, energy efficiency is within a range of 90-95%, compared with 55-65% for conventional and radiant element, or 45% - 55% for gas fueled burners. The energy efficiency contributes to substantial energy savings, both beneficial to the owner as well as the environment.

Induction cooking elements are sensitive to the cookware type being used :

-If there is no cookware placed on the element, or if the cookware is not of induction grade, there will be no power emitted by the element.

-If the the piece of cookware is placed partially on the element, or if it is smaller than the element, the internal sensors will reduce power to the element.
