10 Using your cooktop

Controls

Depending on your model, your cooktop has two or four individual elements below a ceramic glass surface.

In CT5602F and CT6551S models, one of the elements is a dual element; you may use either the full element or the inner element only. See ‘Dual element controls’ below.

The diameters of the cooking areas are clearly marked. The elements become red when turned on full.

The elements are fitted with temperature limiters to prevent the glass from overheating. You will notice that the limiters turn the elements on and off during cooking.

After an element is turned off, its ‘Surface Hot’ indicator light will glow until the glass becomes cool enough to be safely touched.

Single element controls

Turn the control knob of the element you wish to use to the High setting to begin cooking, and adjust as necessary.

For further advice on cooking, see ‘Cookware and cooking tips’ following.

12 Cookware and cooking tips

To get the best results out of your cooktop, follow the suggestions below.

Cookware

Use heavy-gauge,flat,smooth-bottomcookware that matches the diameter of the cooking area. 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.

Jagged edges on saucepans or heavy frypans will scratch the cooktop. 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.

Fig.11 Use cookware with flat and smooth bases to provide good contact with the glass

Cooking tips

The elements of your cooktop operate over a wide range of settings from very low to very high, giving you accurate and repeatable control of the heat.

Use the low setting for delicate tasks like melting chocolate or keeping milk warm.

For delicate cooking tasks and gentle simmering, you may want to experiment by turning the control knob below the marked low setting.

Use the high setting for boiling or frying.

Once your food is sufficiently hot or has come to the boil, reduce the temperature to maintain a steady heat and cook food through.

Using a lid will reduce cooking times and save energy. Minimise the amount of liquid or fat to reduce cooking times.

Use residual heat retained in the glass after the element is turned off to continue the cooking process or to keep food warm.

Care and cleaning 13

Important!

Switch the cooktop off at the wall before cleaning.

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

Do not use harsh/abrasive cleaning agents or heavy-dutyscourers to clean your cooktop, as they may scratch the glass surface and damage the stainless steel finish and the knobs.

Some nylon scourers may scratch the ceramic glass surface and damage the stainless steel finish and the knobs. Always read the label to check if your scourer is suitable for cleaning ceramic glass cooktops.

Commercial stainless steel cleaners containing chlorine compounds are corrosive and may damage the appearance of your cooktop. Always read the label to check if your cleaner contains chlorine.

Use cleaner on the cooktop while it is still warm to touch. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. The cooktop may become stained if cleaning residue is left on it.

Remove any food, spillovers or grease from the cooktop while it is still warm using the razor blade scraper provided. Hold it at a 30o angle.

Cleaning metallic stains

Copper-basedor aluminium saucepans may cause metallic staining. These stains show as a metallic sheen on the cooktop. If the cooktop is not cleaned regularly and the stains are allowed to burn onto the surface, they may react with the glass and will no longer be removable. To help prevent such damage, apply a glass cooktop conditioner after every use.

Cleaning melts and spillovers

Anything that melts onto the ceramic glass surface or food spills with a high sugar content may cause pitting of the ceramic glass surface if they are left there to cool.

Examples include: plastic wrap

melted aluminium foil

sugar, sugary syrups, jams and jellies

vegetables and vegetable water with a high sugar content eg peas, sweet corn, beetroot.

Remove these spills immediately with the razor blade scraper provided, taking care not to scratch the glass. Follow the steps below:

1 Turn the elements off and carefully scrape the spill to a cool area of the cooktop surface.

2Clean the spill up with a dish cloth or paper towel.

3As soon as the cooktop is cool enough to safely touch, clean with cooktop cleaner.

Cleaning the surround strip

To remove fingerprints and other marks, wipe with a clean damp cloth and dry with a lintfree cloth. Brushed stainless steel (some models only) can also be cleaned with a commercial stainless cleaner (see ‘Important’ above).

Do not use steel soap pads as this may dull the appearance of the stainless steel over time.
