The AEG induction hob with SenseBoil® function has a built-in sensor that detects when water inside cookware reaches boiling point. The hob automatically adjusts the temperature to reduce the bubbles to a controlled simmer, preventing water from boiling over. The sensor works when boiling water or water with potatoes.
The SenseBoil® function is available on selected AEG induction hobs.
How to turn on the SenseBoil® function
1. Press when the hob is turned on. A blinkingshows the zones where the boiling sensor can be used
2. Set the heat level for the preferred zone. The blinking light above the symbol indicates the progress and remains lit until the water starts to boil
3. When you hear a beeping sound, the boiling point has been reached, and the water will be reduced to a simmer. If you’re cooking pasta or vegetables, add these to the water and continue cooking
How to turn off the SenseBoil® function
Press or adjust the heat level of the zone manually to turn off the boiling sensor.
- Fill 1/2 to 3/4 of the pot with water, leaving 4 cm from the rim of the pot empty
- Do not use less than 1 or more than 5 litres of water, and make sure the total weight of the water (or water with potatoes) ranges between 1-5kg
Good to know
- The boiling sensor can be used one zone at a time
- If a zone is already in use or has residual heat, it can’t be used with the boiling sensor
- If you don’t select a zone within 5 seconds, the boiling sensor will not turn on
- The boiling sensor works both with and without a lid on the pot or pan
- Turning on the Pause function or lifting the cookware will turn off the boiling sensor
