With an induction hob (unlike electric or ceramic) only the outer edge of the hob detects the pot or pan by means of electromagnetics. For pots and pans with induction technology to be recognised on the hob, the bottom of the pot or pan must come into connect with the outer edge of the hob ring.
In the exceptional case that your pan is not recognised by your hob, try the following:
1. Place cookware on an appropriately sized hob ring.
Induction technology only works effectively if the base of the cookware matches the size of the ring on the hob.
If a ring is used that is larger than the cookware, the cookware may not be recognised and so will not heat up.
2. Place cookware on a small ring.
If you do not have a ring that matches the base of your cookware then select a smaller ring.
3. Do not place the cookware exactly in the centre of the ring.
If you do not have a ring that is smaller than the base of your cookware, then position the cookware towards the outer edge and not directly in the centre of the ring. This will allow contact between the outermost points of the base and induction coil.
4. Refer to your instruction manual for your induction hob.
Check which diameter of pan is suitable for which ring.
