  • The hot plate cooks slowly
  • Too long cooking time

Applies to

  • electric hobs / cookers
  • induction hobs / cookers
  • gas hobs / cookers


1. Measure the cooking time as follows:

  • Use a steel saucepan that fits perfectly in the cooking zone.
  • Make sure that the bottom of the saucepan is even by pressing a ruler to the base.
  • Pour 1 l of water into the saucepan and put the lid on.
  • Place the saucepan in the cooking zone. Set to the highest setting.
  • Compare the table with the cooking times below:

Note: The time at which steam starts escaping from under the lid.

2. (Induction hobs) Pan type and construction can affect heating times. We recommend using pans with a thick, flat solid base. Pans with a thin base or grid-style bases will work but with limitations.
