How to cook with your AEG TotalFlex induction hob

Last updated 12/02/2024 11:09

cooking on an induction hob using various sizes and shapes of cookware

The AEG TotalFlex induction hob automatically detects cookware of various shapes and sizes and creates a dedicated cooking zone. 

Setting the cooking zone

The hob automatically determines the mode based on the cookware's size and shape. This is done with the help of 8-12 small triangular-shaped zones activated to match the cookware's surface. The number of triangles depends on the size of your hob.

1. Small zone – one triangular zone 
2. Standard zone – two triangular zones combined 
3. Large zone – several triangular zones combined together  
4. Multiple size zones – a combination of small, standard and large zones used simultaneously 
 

     


Option 1: Small zone

Place smaller cookware with a bottom diameter between 100 mm and 160 mm centrally on a single triangle. 

        


When you place your cookware on a zone, the corresponding slider control lights up. 

                


Option 2: Standard zone

Place medium-sized cookware with a bottom diameter between 160 mm and 210 mm on a pair of triangles. Depending on your hob size:

  • 60 cm: up to 4 medium-sized pans (160‐210mm) can be heated at the same time
  • 80 cm: up to 6 medium-sized pans (160-210mm) can be heated at the same time

             

When you place your cookware on a zone, the corresponding slider control lights up. 

            


Option 3: Large zone  

Place larger round cookware with a bottom diameter between 240 mm and 350 mm on four triangles.  

         

                       

When you place your cookware on a zone, the corresponding slider control lights up. 

          

Important: If you have an 80 cm hob, only the area on the left side will link to create the large cooking area.  

Place oval-shaped or extra-long cookware, e.g. roasting tins or plancha grills, vertically or horizontally in Bridge combinations. Some cookware might be too long to position vertically and use safely, as they will cover the user interface. In this case, only place the pan horizontally. 

                       

When you place your cookware on a zone, the corresponding slider control lights up. 

                     


Important: The cookware must cover 3 or 4 triangles.


Option 4: Multiple size zones

Use a combination of small, standard and large zone simultaneously. When you place your cookware on a zone, the corresponding slider control lights up.
