14 Using your cooktop

Using the touch controls

The cooking zone and timer displays also function as touch controls. To select a cooking zone or the timer, simply touch its display. Use the ball of your finger, not its tip. The controls respond to touch, so you don’t need to apply any pressure.

Once you have selected a cooking zone or the timer, you have 10 seconds to set it (while the little red light at the bottom right of the display is on). If the little red light goes out before you have had a chance to select a setting, simply re-selectthe cooking zone or timer by touching its display again.

Make sure the controls are always clean, dry, and there is no object (eg a utensil or a cloth) covering them. Even a thin film of water may make the controls difficult to operate.

To select a setting on the selector:

3The flashing indicator in the timer display means that the timer is ready to be set for the left rear cooking zone.

As an example, you would like to set the timer to turn this particular cooking zone off after 25 minutes.

4Set the right-handdigit using the setting selector.

22 Using your cooktop’s special features

5The display will then indicate for you to set the left-handdigit.

6Set the left-handdigit using the setting selector. The timer is now set and begins counting down.

When the set time is up

The corresponding indicator in the timer display will flash, the timer will beep, and the cooking zone will automatically turn off (its display showing H if the surface is hot).

Touch any control to stop the beeping.

Notes on using the timer

Skip the last step (6) if you want to set the timer to less than 10 minutes.

To modify or cancel a timer setting, follow steps 1 and 2 under ‘To set the timer for a cooking zone’, then modify the number of minutes as wished.

Once you have set the timer for one cooking zone, you can go on to set it for additional cooking zones by repeating the steps under ‘To set the timer for a cooking zone’ for each, being mindful of the following:

-The timer display will always revert to showing the setting for the cooking zone with the shortest remaining time.

-To check the timer setting for a different cooking zone, simply select the cooking zone. Its remaining time will briefly appear in the timer display.

Cooking guidelines 23

Cookware

Use heavy-gauge,flat,smooth-basedcookware that matches the diameter of the cooking zone. This will provide good contact with the glass and help reduce cooking times. Low heat or slow cooking is often due to incorrect cookware size.

Cookware with a stainless steel sandwich base or enamelled cast iron will give you the best results.

Saucepans or heavy frying pans with jagged edges or a rough base will scratch the glass. Always lift pans off the cooktop - do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.

Never use plastic or aluminium foil dishes on the cooktop.

Aluminium and copper-bottomedcookware can leave a metallic residue on the cooktop. If left on the glass, this becomes difficult to remove. Clean the cooktop after every use.

It is safe to place hot cookware from the oven, or another cooking zone, on the glass surface when the surface is cool.

Avoid placing anything on a hot cooking zone until it has cooled completely (Hhas gone out). Ensure that pans never extend over the touch control area.

24 Cooking guidelines

Important!

Take care when deep-frying:oil or fat can overheat very quickly, particularly on a high setting.

When food comes to the boil, reduce the temperature setting. Using a lid will reduce cooking times through retaining the heat. Minimise the amount of liquid or fat to reduce cooking times.

Start cooking on a high setting and reduce the setting when the food has heated through.

Simmering, cooking rice

Simmering occurs below boiling point, at around 85 OC, when bubbles are just rising occasionally to the surface of the cooking liquid. It is the key to delicious soups and tender stews because the flavours develop without overcooking the food. You should also cookegg-basedand flourthickened sauces below boiling point.

Some tasks, including cooking rice by the absorption method, may require a setting higher than the lowest setting to ensure the food is cooked properly in the time recommended.

Searing steak

To cook juicy flavoursome steaks:

1 Stand the meat at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.

2Heat up a heavy-basedfrying pan.

3Brush both sides of the steak with oil. Drizzle a small amount of oil into the hot pan and then lower the meat onto the hot pan.

4Turn the steak only once during cooking. The exact cooking time will depend on the thickness of the steak and how cooked you want it. Times may vary from about 2 – 8 minutes per side. Press the steak to gauge how cooked it is – the firmer it feels the more ‘well done’ it will be.

5Leave the steak to rest on a warm plate for a few minutes to allow it to relax and become tender before serving.

For stir-frying

1Choose a flat-basedwok or a large frying pan.

2Have all the ingredients and equipment ready. Stir-fryingshould be quick. If cooking large quantities, divide the food into several smaller batches.

3 Preheat the pan briefly and add two tablespoons of oil.

4Cook any meat first, put it aside and keep warm.

5Stir-frythe vegetables. When they are hot but still crisp, turn the cooking zone to a lower setting, return the meat to the pan and add your sauce.

6 Stir the ingredients gently to make sure they are heated through.

7Serve immediately.

4Switch the power to the cooktop back on at the wall.

When the power to the cooktop is switched off, there will be no ‘hot surface’ warning but the cooking zone may still be hot! Take extreme care.

Heavy-dutyscourers, some nylon scourers and harsh/abrasive cleaning agents may scratch the glass. Always read the label to check if your cleaner or scourer is suitable.

Never leave cleaning residue on the cooktop: the glass may become stained.

Burnt-onfood or grease, melts, sugary spillovers on glass

sugar, sugary syrups, jams and jellies vegetables or vegetable water with high

sugar content (peas, sweetcorn, beetroot) melted aluminium foil melted plastic wrap

Remove these immediately with a razor blade scraper suitable for ceramic glass cooktops, but beware of hot cooking zone surfaces:

1Switch the power to the cooktop off at the wall.

2Hold the razor blade at a 30o angle and scrape the soiling or spill to a cool area of

the cooktop.

3Clean the soiling or spill up with a dish

cloth or paper towel.

4As soon as the cooktop has cooled enough to safely touch, clean with cooktop cleaner following the instructions

for ‘Everyday soiling on glass’ above.

5Switch the power to the cooktop back on at the wall.

Remove stains left by melts and sugary food or spillovers as soon as possible. If left to burn on or cool, they may be difficult to remove

or even permanently damage the glass surface.
