This function is used for deep-frying, automatically
regulating the temperature of the pan.
The hotplates equipped with this function are on the
right side or front hotplates, depending on the model
The hotplate only heats when necessary. This way
energy is saved. The oil and fat do not overheat.
‒Never leave oil or fat cooking unattended.
‒Place the pan at the centre of the hotplate.
Ensure that the base of the pan is the right
‒Do not cover the pan with a lid. Doing so will
cause the automatic regulation not to function. A
protective screen may be used without affecting
the automatic regulation
‒Only use oil which is suitable for frying. If using
butter, margarine, olive oil or pork lard, select the
min temperature setting.
