Introducing your cooktop/hob
Now that your new cooktop is installed and ready to use, you will want to know everything about it to ensure excellent results right from the start.

Heating tips
When you need to boil, simmer or fry your food, first set the temperature to the high flame symbol . Once your pan is boiling, reduce the temperature setting to maintain a steady heat to cook your food through. This will reduce cooking time.
Flame failure safety feature
Your cooktop has a flame failure safety device fitted.
A metal probe behind the burner generates electricity when a flame is present.
After 5 seconds the metal probe gets hot enough to hold a valve open and maintain the gas
If the flame is blown out then the gas to the burner is cut off.
To operate the flame failure you need to hold the burner knob down for 5 seconds after the
burner has ignited.
Letting go of the burner knob too soon will extinguish the flame.
Your cooktop has two probes at the back of the burners, one will be the spark electrode and the
other is the flame failure probe.
Using Saucepans
Generally, larger saucepans are more efficient. It is a good idea to match the size of your pan with the cooking zone of the burner and always make sure pans are stable. Do not let large saucepans or frying pans overlap the bench as this can defect heat onto your benchtop and damage the surface.
Hints and tips
To get the best out of your cooktop follow these simple suggestions.
Do not use an asbestos mat between the flame and the saucepan as this may cause serious
damage to your cooktop.
Never use plastic or aluminium foil dishes on the burners.
Saucepans should have thick flat bottoms. Food in a saucepan with an uneven bottom will take
longer to cook. Heavy saucepans may bend the pan support or deflect the flame.
Match the bottom of your saucepans with the cooking zone and see that it is stable. This will
give you the most efficient cooking. Do not let large saucepans or frying pans overlap the bench as this can deflect heat onto your benchtop and damage the surface.
Make a delicious fruit compote by simmering rhubarb in sugar and water until tender. When cool, add fresh strawberries. Serve chilled.
Titan models only (CG912 series)
Using a wok
Care should be taken when using a large wok that other pots are not pushed sideways enough to become unstable or deflect heat onto nearby walls.
Using the simmermat
The Simmermat helps you control the temperature of your cooking surface to ensure the long slow simmering that is needed for successfully cooking delicate foods. Use at low heat only. Always remember it is a simmering utensil and exposure to extreme heat may distort it.
To use the simmermat
First cook the food, or bring to a boil, over high heat.
Then reduce the heat and carefully place the Simmermat over the flame with the points facing
upward. Put your saucepan on top of the points and simmer on the low flame setting.
Always turn the burner off before moving the Simmermat and handle the hot Simmermat with tongs and/or pot holders to prevent burns.
