I. The preeminent features of the induction cooker you should know
1. First, let’s talk about the safety features of the induction cooker:
+ Child safety lock:
Induction hobs are the safest cooking equipment today. No fire, no electric shock, no heat transfer outside the cooking zone. Only heat the cooking zone when the induction cooker is placed. Will display or report an error, signal warning to the user when the potting material is not suitable.
When cooking, if the user heats the pot to dry the water, then add food and oil. The induction hob will automatically disconnect or give an error warning signal when the temperature is too hot, or overloaded. Moreover, if the power supply is unstable, insufficient or overloaded, the stove will also automatically disconnect to ensure that the total power of your family is safely protected.
Many safety cooking features such as child lock, are very suitable for families with young children. When this safety lock mode is enabled, all settings and keys on the induction hob will be temporarily deactivated. You will no longer have to worry about your child being bulged, burned or playing, playing in the cooking area.
+ Anti-overflow warning
In the old generation kitchens, when the overflow occurs, the stove will continue to boil and the water will continue to overflow. And if this phenomenon goes on for a long time, it can cause fire and damage to the stove. However, today’s high-end induction cookers are different. When detecting signs of overflow, it will immediately sound an alarm and automatically turn off the stove. Even if boiling water spills over the stove, the water will cool down quickly because of the fast heat dissipation feature of the cooktop, protecting users from kitchen burns.
+ Residual heat warning
This function has the effect of broadcasting a notification to the user that the cooktop is still hot so that the user knows and does not touch it. Specifically, when the stovetop is hot over 65 degrees Celsius, the stove will display the letter H on the control screen. When the stove has cooled below 65 degrees Celsius, the cooktop becomes safer, users can comfortably clean the stovetop without fear of burns.
When you cook with a large capacity for a long time, it is easy to damage the internal components of the induction cooker, reduce the life of the stove and put the user in a dangerous situation.
So, if you detect that the hob has overheated and emits an E1 error warning, it’s better to turn off the stove immediately. Then immediately remove the cookware from the stove and make sure that the ventilation system is still working properly to cool the stove in time.
+ Warning whether the pot is cooking:
When the induction cooker detects that you have not placed the pot on the stove for a long time, the stove will immediately report an error, then the stove will stop working. You will easily see this error displayed on the display of the stove, the letter “E2” will appear. The error will only go away when you put the food in the pot.
+ Unsuitable pot warning:
This warning will appear on an induction cooker when the pot you are using is not a magnetic cooker – specialized for induction cookers. On the other hand, an unsuitable cooker may also be due to the size of the pot being too small or too large compared to the hob’s magnetic ring.
If you find that the pot is not suitable for the stove, you should check to see if it is a magnetic pot. The simplest way to check is to use a magnet near the bottom of the pot, if the bottom of the pot is attracted by the magnet, it is an induction cooker. Conversely, if the magnet does not attract the bottom of the pot, you should change to another pot that is magnetic. In addition, you need to pay attention, the pot should have a flat bottom, the bottom diameter is larger than 10 cm and less than 26 cm to be compatible with the hob ring and cook better.
+ Automatically turn off the stove when you forget it
When you cook for longer than the default cooking time, the hob will understand that you have left the pot on the stove. The stove will automatically turn off immediately after that to ensure that the food is not burnt and safe for users.
+ Overload and overvoltage protection
The voltage that is too low or too high will also not be good for the operation of the stove and make the user unsafe. Therefore, imported induction cookers of some high-end brands have added an automatic shutdown function when overloaded and over-voltage. Accordingly, every time the power supply to the stove is unstable, the stove will automatically turn off to protect the components inside the kitchen and also to prolong the life of the stove.
+ Customizable temperature
The induction cooker has a wide temperature control panel, from 100 W – 1800 W, equivalent to 60 – 280 degrees C (depending on the type of stove) to help users control the exact cooking temperature. Induction hobs also have self-selected cooking modes, helping users to cook more dishes they like.
+ Cooking timer
You do not have to worry about the dish being burned, nor do you have to stand guard on the stove because the induction cooker with the cooking timer feature will automatically turn off the stove when the preset time is up.
+ Protect your health
Gas stoves or wood stoves when cooking will produce CO2. Although this gas does not affect health, if it is cooked too much and continuously, it is accompanied by an unventilated surrounding space, and an unpleasant odor, and it is possible to suffocate. Induction cookers are not like that, do not burn fuel to generate heat, so they do not produce smoke or CO2. Therefore, induction cookers are the optimal choice for families, especially when there are elderly people or young children in the house.
+ Easy to clean the stove
Induction cooktops have a surface made of glass, so food is difficult to turn on the stovetop like those with metal surfaces. Just a soft damp cloth can wipe away food residues on the surface of the induction hob.

III. Instructions on how to use the induction cooker
1. Operation steps | Instructions to turn on the induction cooker
Turning on the induction cooker is the first way to use the induction cooker that you need to know. First, check if the pots and pans you are using are compatible with the induction hob. Induction cookers need a separate set of pots and pans. They are usually made from iron, and stainless steel, which is magnetic. The easiest way to test that is to use a magnet to test it.
If the magnet sticks to the bottom of a pot or pan, it can be used on an induction hob. In case you buy a new set of pots and pans, double-check the specifications and labels to make sure they can work on an induction hob. Usually, it will have an “induction pan” icon.
Next, we will guide the steps to operate the induction cooker
• Step 1: Turn on the power switch of the stove. Usually, this switch will be mounted on the wall or inside the kitchen cabinet. With single cooker models, you only need to plug in the power to be able to use it.
• Step 2: Place pots and pans in the cooking area you want to use
• Step 3: Hold your finger on the stove start button
• Step 4: Start cooking by selecting the sensor related to the cooking zone you use. You can choose the cooking mode you want.

• Step 6: After using the stove, hold the start button again to turn off the stove.
Note: If there is no pot or pan in the cooking zone, the stove will not work.
2. How to open the magnetic kitchen when locked
Some types of induction cookers have a safety lock function, which is convenient for cleaning and protects the children in the house from unfortunate accidents. Depending on the type of stove, the following types of locks are available:
• Lock to clean the kitchen: normally, this feature will lock the kitchen within 30 seconds. During this time, you can wipe the cooktop without disturbing the cooking settings.
• Child lock: This feature is common in all modern induction cookers. When the key icon is pressed for a few seconds, the kitchen control panel will be locked. This feature can be automatically activated every time the stove is turned off. As a result, your induction cooker will be safer. Especially for families with young children.
So how to open the magnetic kitchen when locked, Huttuscon will guide you:
For the Bosch induction hob, you can unlock it very easily.
