Energy-saving advice

Always use the correct lid for each pan. Cooking 

without a lid uses a lot more energy. Use a glass lid 

to provide visibility and avoid having to lift the lid.

Use pans with flat bases. Bases that are not flat use 

a lot more energy.

The diameter of the pan base must match the size of 

the hotplate. Please note: pan manufacturers usually 

provide the diameter for the top of the pan, which is 

usually larger than the diameter of the pan base.

Use a small pan for small amounts of food. A large 

pan which is not full uses a lot of energy.

Use little water when cooking. This saves energy and 

preserves all the vitamins and minerals in 


Select the lowest power level to maintain cooking. If 

the power level is too high, energy is wasted.

Induction cooking



Advantages of induction cooking

Induction cooking is very different from traditional 

cooking methods, as heat builds up directly in the item 

of cookware. This offers numerous advantages: 

Saves time when boiling and frying.

Saves energy.

Easier to care for and clean. Spilled food does not 

burn on as quickly.

Heat control and safety – the hob increases or 

decreases the heat supply as soon as the user 

changes the setting. The induction hotplate stops the 

heat supply as soon as the cookware is removed 

from the hotplate, without having to switch it off first. 


Only use ferromagnetic cookware for induction cooking, 

such as:

Cookware made from enamelled steel

Cookware made from cast iron

Special induction-compatible cookware made from 

stainless steel. 

To check whether your cookware is suitable for 

induction cooking, refer to the section on 
~ "Cookware check".
To achieve a good cooking result, the ferromagnetic 

area on the base of the pan should match the size of 

the hotplate. If a hotplate does not detect an item of 

cookware, try placing it on another hotplate with a 

smaller diameter.

If the only hotplate being used is the flexible cooking 

zone, larger cookware that is particularly suited to this 

zone can be used. You can find information on 

positioning cookware in the section on ~ "Flex Zone".
