How To Use An Induction Hob
Also known as induction cooktop or stove, the induction hob is an efficient cooking vessel where heat settings can be changed instantly to increase temperature rapidly. Instead of relying on thermal conduction, convection or radiation, here cooking is done by using high power and it takes only minutes. Alternating current passing through the coil of copper wire beneath the hob surface creates an oscillation of magnetic energy that induces electrical current wirelessly and helps in resistive heating.
The 16 ampere induction hob from CIARRA follows the same technique to give you the best induction cooking experience with convenient options like touch control and timer function. As much as technically complex it sounds, actually, using the table cooktop is rather easy.
All you need to do is switch on the unit, place the cookware or pan (compatible with induction) on the hob ring and find the power button on the appliance. Switch it on and choose the functions or use the + and – sensors for adjusting the heat. Once cooking is done, you should press the power button on the hob again and switch off the unit.
While using the induction hobs, you should follow a few basic rules to avoid any hazard.
- Once you have turned on the switch on the hob, do not keep it unattended.
- If the appliance is not in use, you should set its cooking zone to “off” or zero mark.
- Using it as storage surface or for other works apart from cooking is a strict no-no.
- Make sure there is no flammable material or liquid kept on or near the hob.
- Avoid spilling any corrosive chemical and conductive material or liquid on the hob surface, especially just above the coils.
- The electrical connection is stable and safe from short circuits and other electrical issues.
- Always check the product description or below the surface of the cookware to see whether it is compatible with induction hob. Incompatible materials can cause damage to the hob, container and even serious accidents
- The cookware that you would be placing on the hob should be stable enough not to tip over and cause any accident.
- Avoid scraping the surface of the hob with rough or corrosive material
