How to turn on your induction hob
Modern household appliances delight not only with their attractive design, but also with their simplicity and comfort in use. An example of this is an induction stove. Getting acquainted with the instructions, we meet incomprehensible terms and procedures, different from the usual household appliances.
In fact, there is nothing complicated. The method of heating with induction currents has long been known, and burners that work on this principle, have been on sale for over 30 years. But the lack of understanding of the process has created rumors about the health hazards, the complexity of operation and, finally, the high price. But by carefully studying and delving into the essence, you can understand the advantages of this type of household helper and courageously purchase.
How to use the induction hob
Induction stoves or panels are the result of the development of traditional kitchen appliances. Their main difference from others lies in the principle of operation. If with a stove working on gas, everything is clear. the combustion of gas fuel leads to heating of cookware and food in it. In an electric stove heating is achieved by the fact that the electric current flowing through the heating element generates a certain amount of thermal energy.
How to cook on an induction stove
To prepare food you need to prepare the necessary products and, of course, utensils, about this below.
Choosing the cookware for the induction hob
For cooking on inductive stoves, it is advisable to use specialized utensils made of ferromagnetic materials. This is determined by the physical principle underlying its operation. Eddy currents, which create heat in crockery, are most effective on ferromagnetic crockery. If the consumer has no desire to spend money to buy new cookware, it is possible to buy an adapter in the form of a disk placed on the burner, so that conventional kitchen utensils (glass, aluminum, etc.) can be used.). This adapter will take on the action of the eddy currents, and heats up, transferring heat to the cookware on it installed.TO FIND OUT WHETHER THE CHOSEN COOKWARE IS SUITABLE FOR USE IN THE INDUCTION FURNACE, OR NOT, WILL HELP AN ORDINARY MAGNET. IT IS ENOUGH TO BRING IT TO THE COOKWARE, AND IF IT STICKS, THEN THE COOKWARE MAY WELL BE USED FOR COOKING ON SUCH EQUIPMENT.
The best solution is to use cookware with a thick bottom.
Figuring out the modes
In order to make the cooking process easier, manufacturers are trying to install more functions, and some of them, in fact, can do some good. For example, the Booster function, which allows you to throw the power from burner to burner. It makes it possible to draw power from a free range burner. It cooks the food a little faster.Heat support mode. it allows to leave the cooked food on the stove and it will not cool down for a long time.
The most “popular” and real problem
A quick look at the schematic diagram shows that one of the important components is the output stage control transistor T1 (the same one that is cooled by a heat sink).
It is the one that is subject to thermal overload, especially in the case of smaller-diameter cookware. The operation of the circuit is arranged in such a way that when the load on the induction coil is increased, the operating current of the transistor increases sharply. A blown part is not necessarily diagnosed visually, because the heatsink is in place and it is effective. Therefore, if there is a suspicion of transistor failure, it should be checked individually.
Using a multimeter you can easily identify faults and replace these essential components.
Another contender “out” is the power capacitor. In the simplified schematic it is marked as Cr. It works directly with the induction coil and is also subject to overheating.
The algorithm is the same: if there is no sign of breakdown, we unsolder it and check it with a multimeter.
Mode of operation of the induction stove
The additional functions of modern stove hobs make cooking much easier. First of all, there are three operating modes:
- “Booster” (Booster). allows you to briefly, but strongly increase the power of the cooking zone by redirecting the energy from the zone that is not currently in use.
- “Keep warm”. keeps cooked food warm for a long time after it is left on the hob.
- “Burners emergency shutoff”. activated in the case of liquid spilt on the surface of the panel.
Real and imaginary faults of induction stoves
Useful tip: If you don’t have a suitable cookware and only have an induction hob, use a ferromagnetic disc with a suitable diameter. They are on sale, or can be made from a thick steel pan.
True, the efficiency of cooking will decrease dramatically, because the source of heat will not be the dish itself, but the metal disk. You can cook on your favorite copper frying pan or heat-resistant glass pan.
Important! The presence of liquid (even water) in nonmagnetic cookware will not make the induction burner work. This is not a microwave oven.

Now universal tips on how to set the time on the oven. First you need to set it and plug it in. The display becomes illuminated and the numbers or a single clock icon flashes.
Then proceed as follows:
- Use the button (if electronic display) or the knob to set the hours.
- Click on the clock icon.
- Now set the minutes.
- And touch the clock icon again.
Usually, to adjust the clock on the oven helps buttons ” and “. ” or there is a special knob, which can be turned. After you have set the time, wait a moment.
