What kind of cookware does SCHOTT recommend?
The bases of pots and pans should be slightly concave at room temperature, as it slightly expands when it gets hot. This ensures that it sits flush with the cooking surface resulting in the most efficient use of the heat. Please ensure that the pan base is the same size as the cooking zone
Glass-ceramic cookware is not really suitable because of its poor conductance and it's potential to scratch the CERAN® cooking surface.
Watch out for aluminum! Pots and pans with copper and/or aluminum bases are not recommended because they are softer than the CERAN® cooking surface and tend to leave small particles, which are difficult to remove. If those particles are not immediately removed with an appropriate cleaning agent, they may burn onto the surface and effect its appearance.
Every pan base should be clean, dry and ridge-free to prevent any residue from burning onto the cooktop panel. This will also help prevent scratches and other damages or deposits (such as lime specks).
Why should the bottoms of pots and pans be slightly concave?
The base of a pot or pan slightly expands when hot, thus making it sit flush with the cooking surface and ensuring the most efficient use of the heat.
Which pot and pan sizes are best suitable?
For best cooking results use stainless steel or enameled steel pots and pans. The base of the stainless steel pans with sandwich bottoms should be 4-6 mm thick and the base of enameled steel pans should be 2-3 mm thick.
The diameter of the pot should correspond to the diameter of the cooking zone; then the heating energy is optimally used and energy consumption is kept low.
Is it possible to place cookware incorrectly onto the cooktop panel?
No, it's not. CERAN® cooktop panels are perfectly flat, so all pots and pans will stand securely, without the risk of overturning. Please ensure that the cookware base is the same size as the cooking zone.
Why should the bottom of cookware be clean and dry?
The bottom of the cookware should be clean, dry and ridge-free to prevent any residue from burning onto the cooktop panel, scratching or other damage or deposits (such as lime specks).
