Cooking with the quick preheating
All the hotplates have a quick preheating function. To
begin with, the required power level for slow cooking
is selected. The hotplate heats up at maximum power
and automatically switches on at the previously
selected power level. The duration of the quick
preheating depends on the programmed power level.

The function is deactivated after a period of time that

Quick heating suggestions
The quick preheating function does not cook the
food: Quick preheating is used to boil food slowly
in a small amount of water in order to conserve its
nutritional value. On large hotplates add only 3
cups of water to the food. On small hotplates add
about 2 cups of water. Boil the rice with double
the quantity of liquid. Cover the pan with a lid.
Quick preheating is not suitable for foods which
have to be cooked in a lot of water (e.g. pasta).
Milk or foods which produce a lot of foam may
overflow the pan. Use a pan with high sides.
Milk may burn: Rinse out the pan with cold water
before filling it.
When frying, food may stick to the pan: Place
food in the pan when the pan is sufficiently hot.
When the oil or butter is sufficiently hot, patches
form when the pan is tilted. Do not stir the food
too soon. Meat or Spanish omelettes practically
come free by themselves after a period of time.
