Micro-Induction Cooktop provides the best in cooktop performance, safety and efficiency. Induction heats as electricity flows through a coil to produce a magnetic field under the ceramic plate. When a ferromagnetic cookware is placed on the ceramic surface, currents are induced in the cookware and instant heat is generated due to the resistance of the pan. Heat is generated to the pan only and no heat is lost. As there are no open flames, inductions are safer to use than conventional burners. Once cookware is removed, all molecular activity ceases and heating is stopped immediately. Before turning ON the cooktop, place a induction compatible cookware with food on the cooktop. To turn ON, press LOCK (LED now displays “- - - -“). Press ON/OFF button within 30 seconds. If ON/OFF is not pressed within 30 seconds, unit will return to locked mode (on Page 4 in the User Manual).
* The 2 lowest power settings cannot be actually achieved, but are "simulated":
100W = 500W intermittently heat for 2 seconds and stop for 8 seconds.
300W = 500W intermittently heat for 6 seconds and stop for 4 seconds.
