Hot plate cooks slowly

The heat up time is measured as follows:

  • Use a steel saucepan that fits perfectly on 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 in the saucepan and put the lid on.
  • Place the saucepan on the cooking zone. Set to the highest setting.

See instructions in heat up times below.

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