The ferromagnetic area will also be reduced if the 

material from which the base of the cookware is 

made contains aluminium, for example. This may 

mean that the cookware will not become sufficiently 

hot or even that it will not be detected.

Unsuitable pans

Never use diffuser hobs or pans made from:

common thin steel

glass

earthenware

copper

aluminium

Properties of the base of the cookware

The material(s) from which the base of the cookware is 

made can affect the cooking result. Using pots and 

pans made from materials that distribute heat evenly 

through them, such as stainless-steel pans with a three-

layer base, saves time and energy.
Use cookware with a flat base; if the base of the 

cookware is uneven, this may impair the heat supply.

Absence of pan or unsuitable size

If no pan is placed on the selected hotplate, or if it is 

made of unsuitable material or is not the correct size, 

the power level displayed on the hotplate indicator will 

flash. Place a suitable pan on the hotplate to stop the 

flashing. If this takes more than 90 seconds, the 

hotplate will switch off automatically.

Empty pans or those with a thin base

Do not heat empty pans, nor use pans with a thin base. 

The hob is equipped with an internal safety system. 

However, an empty pan may heat up so quickly that the 

"automatic switch off" function may not have time to 

react and the pan may reach very high temperatures. 

The base of the pan could melt and damage the glass 

on the hob. In this case, do not touch the pan and 

switch the hotplate off. If it fails to work after it has 

cooled down, please contact the Technical Assistance 

Service.

Pan detection

Each hotplate has a lower limit for pan detection. This 

depends on the diameter of the ferromagnetic area of 

the cookware and the material from which its base is 

made. For this reason, you should always use the 

hotplate that best matches the diameter of the base of 

the pan.
