Every Beko cooktop has a unique serial number. It’s located on the bottom of your appliance.
Since most cooktops are built-in, you will not be able to see the sticker containing the serial number once the appliance is installed. For this reason, serial numbers are also printed on stickers located on product boxes and the user manual.
Glass ceramic cooktops are made from a durable material, but you still need to use appropriate kitchenware. Pans made from conductive metal work well, except for aluminum. Aluminum may damage the glass surface of the cooktop.
Make sure that you only use flat-bottomed pans. This makes heat transfer more efficient and saves energy. The bottoms of the pots shouldn’t be smaller than the hotplates or burner caps or energy gets wasted.
Induction cooktops create heat from magnetic energy. This energy is only activated by ferromagnetic metals. Put very simply, you need pots and pans made of metals like stainless steel and cast iron that a magnet would stick to.
Materials like copper, aluminum, or ceramic will not work on induction cooktops. The easiest way to test whether a cookware will work on an induction cooktop is to see if magnets stick to its base. Plus, it’s a good idea that the base be flat as induction energy is only activated by the touching of materials.
Cookware manufacturers have been engraving a coiled spring symbol on the bottom of their products to help consumers recognize induction-safe items. Some products come with an induction plate on the base, despite being non-ferrous themselves.
Follow these steps to place your cooktop’s burner heads and caps correctly.
1. Find the small holes on the head pieces. Align these holes with the ignition nozzles on the cooktop and place the head.
2. Make sure that the burner heads are flat and level.
3. Find the right size of burner cap for each head and place them right in the middle of burner heads.
The burner heads and the caps need to be placed correctly for your cooktop to work properly. If the head or the cap is even slightly off-center or tilted, your cooktop may ignite slowly, unevenly or not at all.
For more information on your cooktop's burners and pieces, consult your user manual. If you’re having trouble finding your manual, download it here using your product’s model number.
