IQboil: Cooking food with a large amount of water
Soups, pasta, and stews have never been so delicious! IQboil is the perfect choice for any dish requiring a large amount of water. Preset cooking mode will bring the contents of the pan or pot to the boil; then, IQ sensors will take over the control of the operation and carefully maintain the right boiling temperature. The intensity of the boil depends on your choice – light, medium, or hard.
IQfry: For delicious results of deep frying
IQfry will make sure your food has just the right crispiness and crunchiness when you are deep frying. With this preset mode, your IQcook hob will prepare excellent French fries, crunchy fried vegetables or meat, and wonderful doughnuts for desert.
IQpro: Slowly cooking the food that requires long cooking time
IQpro is the right choice for farinaceous food such as the meat stew, rice soufflé, pudding, polenta etc. – any food that benefits from long cooking time and requires slow heating followed by simmering. IQpro is also an excellent choice when reheating ready-made or pre-cooked food.
IQsteam: Cooking with steam for healthy and wholesome meals!
Innovative and unique IQsteam cooking mode will cook your food using nothing but steam! It is a revolutionary novelty in steam cooking that will make sure your vegetables retain the valuable nutrients, vitamins, and minerals while remaining compact and juicy. It only takes 0.5 dl of water to cook 1 kg of vegetables. And you will retain what is worth retaining! Steam cooking will also preserve the natural colour and flavour of the food you use. Cooking control is perfect as the preset program automatically controls the evaporation for even steam cooking.
SmartControl: Simple control for each cooking zone
Since every cooking zone is fitted with its own module including a dedicated program timer and touch control device, cooking time can be set for each zone separately. After the set amount of time expires, cooking zone will be automatically switched off, which will be signalled by a beep. Cooking progress can be accurately set with nine power levels. All functions are displayed by intelligible symbols. This affords perfect control over your cooking – without any fuss!
StopGo: Pause as necessary
A single touch is enough to instantly stop the operation of all cooking zones. If situation calls for a sudden pause to your cooking, everything will remain under control even without your presence. When you get back, touch the same key again to resume operation, with all settings intact!
With the SoftMelt function engaged, the cooking zone will maintain a constant temperature of 42 °C. Even heating is an excellent function allowing you to simply and safely melt honey, butter, or chocolate – without danger of burning! This function is also ideal for thawing frozen food. StayWarm function makes it easy to keep your food at the ideal temperature for serving, i.e. 70 °C. At this temperature, the food will stay warm while retaining its flavour and aroma.
Lock the entire hob, or lock your current settings. Children will be safe from uncontrolled operation and the cooking hob will be safe from their attempts to tamper with it.
Since the induction hob is only heated underneath the pan and temperature adjustments are effective immediately, the danger of boiling or spilling over is minimal. Hence, nothing gets burnt and stuck onto the hob! In case of accidents, simply wipe the surface. Fresh water will do.
As long as a cooking zone is still hot, this will be indicated by a light signal. When on, do not touch the zones. Residual heat can be used to keep food warm, or for slow melting – without using any additional energy.
Countdown timer can be set to up to 99 minutes. If you know the optimum cooking time for a particular dish from experience, set the timer and the hob will switch off automatically after the set period. A beep will signal that your food is ready.
