16 Introduction

Introducing your cooktop

Congratulations on your new purchase. Your Fisher & Paykel induction cooktop is the ultimate in induction cooking, giving you the speed, precision, and simplicity of electronic control, and the easy-careelegance of a ceramic glass surface. For more information, visit our local website listed on the back cover.

A word on induction cooking

Induction cooking is a safe, advanced, efficient, and economical cooking technology. It works by electromagnetic vibrations generating heat directly in the pan, rather than indirectly through heating the glass surface. The glass becomes hot only because the pan eventually warms it up. This technology has a number of advantages over traditional radiant energy cooking:

Heat-uptimes are much faster.

Use is safer as no heating takes place unless a suitable pan is placed on the cooking zone. As heat is transferred without loss, you save energy.

Before using your new cooktop

Read this guide, taking special note of the ‘Safety and warnings’ section.

Remove any protective film that may still be on your cooktop.

Using the touch controls

The controls respond to touch, so you don’t need to apply any pressure. Use the ball of your finger, not its tip.

You will hear a beep each time a touch is registered.

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.

18 Choosing the right cookware

Important!

Only use cookware with a base suitable for induction cooking. Look for the induction symbol on the packaging or the bottom of the pan.

You can check whether your cookware is suitable by carrying out a magnet test. Move a magnet towards the base of the pan. If it is attracted, the pan is suitable for induction.

If you do not have a magnet:

1Put some water in the pan you want to check.

2Follow the steps under ‘To start cooking’ opposite.

3If does not flash in the display and the water is heating, the pan is suitable.

Cookware made from the following materials is not suitable: pure stainless steel, aluminium or copper without a magnetic base, glass, wood, porcelain, ceramic, earthenware.

Do not use cookware with jagged edges or a curved base.

Make sure that the base of your pan is smooth, sits flat against the glass, and is the same size as the cooking zone. Always centre your pan on the cooking zone.

Always lift pans off the cooktop– do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.

To start cooking

1Touch and hold the ON/OFF control for 2 seconds.

3Place a suitable pan on the cooking zone you wish to use.

Make sure the bottom of the pan and the surface of the cooking zone are clean and dry.

Using your induction cooktop 19

20 will appear in the cooking zone displays.

4Select a heat setting by touching or+ .

If you don’t choose a heat setting within 10 seconds, the cooktop will automatically turn off. Start with step 1 again.

You can modify the heat setting at any time during cooking.

If a display flashes alternately with the heat setting

This means that:

you have not placed a pan on the correct cooking zone or the pan you’re using is not suitable for induction cookingor

the pan is too small or not properly centred on the cooking zone.

No heating takes place unless there is a suitable pan on the cooking zone.

The cooktop will automatically turn off after 10 minutes if no suitable pan is placed on it.

20 Using your induction cooktop

When you have finished cooking

OR

1a Turn the cooking zone off by scrolling down to 0 or touchingand+ together. Make sure the display shows 0.

1b Turn the whole cooktop off by touching the ON/OFF control.

2Beware of hot surfaces

H will show which cooking zone is too hot to touch. It will disappear when the surface has cooled down to a safe temperature.

Using your induction cooktop 21

Locking the controls

You can lock the controls to prevent unintended use (for example children accidentally turning cooking zones on).

When the controls are locked, all controls except the ON/OFF control are disabled.

To lock the controls

1Make sure that the cooktop is turned on but no cooking zone is in use.

2Touch and hold the keylock control for 2 seconds. The red light above the control comes on,

indicating that the controls are locked.

Note: the cooktop will automatically turn off after 10 seconds, but the controls will still be locked when you turn the cooktop on again.

To unlock the controls

1Make sure the cooktop is turned on.

2 Touch and hold the keylock controlfor 2 seconds. The red light above the control goes out.

3You can now start using your cooktop.

Important!

Do not lock the controls while a cooking zone is in use. If you do, you can always turn the cooktop off with the ON/OFF control in an emergency.

22 Using your cooktop’s special features

Using the PowerBoost feature

This feature enables you to sear meat or bring liquid to the boil very quickly. When a cooking zone is set for PowerBoost, it uses more than 100% of the power of that particular cooking zone, resulting in a boost of intense heat.

Important!

PowerBoost heats food and liquids very quickly. Do not leave the cooktop unattended when using this feature.

To set a cooking zone for PowerBoost

1With the cooktop turned on, touch the PowerBoost control . The flashing red light indicates that PowerBoost is ready to be set.

2Within 5 seconds, touch the or+ control

of a cooking zone once. Its display will show P.

When PowerBoost is set

10 mins

The cooking zone will be on PowerBoost (more than 100%) for 10 minutes, and then automatically reduce the heat to setting9 (100%).

To quit the PowerBoost setting

Touch the control of the cooking zone at any time and select a new setting or turn the cooking zone off.

Using your cooktop’s special features 23

Note:

You can set two (CI604DT and CI754DT) or three (CI905DT) cooking zones for PowerBoost, as long as one is not behind the other. For example:

If you wish to set more than one cooking zone for PowerBoost, you need to set them separately. When a cooking zone is set for PowerBoost, the cooking zone immediately in front of or behind it may have to reduce its power level.

Using the GentleHeat feature

This feature is ideal for the most delicate cooking tasks (such as melting chocolate), as the cooking zone will provide continuous gentle heat (between heat setting levels 0 and1).

To set a cooking zone for GentleHeat

1With the cooktop turned on, touch the GentleHeat control . The flashing red light indicates that GentleHeat is ready to be set.

2Within 5 seconds, touch the or+ control of a cooking zone. Its display will show U...

24 Using your cooktop’s special features

Using the Auto Heat-reducefeature

Cooking zones set for this feature will:

first quickly heat up food or liquid at the highest setting

then automatically reduce the heat to a pre-selectedlower setting to cook the food through.

To set a cooking zone for Auto Heat-reduce

1With the cooktop turned on, touch the

control of a cooking zone. The display will show9.

2Touch +. The letterAwill start flashing alternately with9.

3Touch briefly and then select the heat setting you want the cooking zone to automatically reduce to(1-8).

Using your cooktop’s special features 25

When Auto Heat-reduceis set

Initially, while the cooking zone is at the highest setting, A will flash alternately with your selected lower setting. The length of time at the

highest setting depends on the lower heat setting selected. See chart below.

32 Cooking guidelines

Important!

Take care when frying: oil and fat heat up very quickly, particularly if you’re using PowerBoost. At extremely high termperatures oil and fat will ignite spontaneously and this presents a serious fire risk.

Cooking tips

When food comes to the boil, reduce the temperature setting.

Using a lid will reduce cooking times and save energy by 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 an induction compatible flat-basedwok or a large frying pan.

2Have all the ingredients and equipment ready. Stir-fryingshould be quick. If cooking large quantities, cook the food in 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.

When the power to the cooktop is switched off, there will be no ‘hot surface’ indication 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.

Boilovers, melts, and hot sugary spills on the glass

Remove these immediately with a fish slice, palette knife or 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 blade or utensil 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.

4Follow steps 2 to 4 for ‘Everyday soiling on glass’ above.

Remove stains left by melts and sugary food or spillovers as soon as possible. If left to cool on the glass, they may be difficult to remove or even permanently damage the glass surface.

Cut hazard: when the safety cover is retracted, the blade in a scraper is razor-sharp.Use with extreme care and always store safely and out of reach of children.
