should start with the high functionality of the glass ceramic cooktop.This is dictated by the special qualities of glass-ceramic material.Extremely robust special glass and ceramics (produced, by the way, in Germany, USA, France) conducts heat from the heating element directly in

the zone of the hotplate.However, other areas remain cold panel.Moreover, heat is easily transmitted upward from the heating element to the bottom of the dishes, and very bad - along the surface.The result - a cookware heats much faster.

Further, heating elements which are arranged under the glass-ceramic may be in various embodiments - and on the principle of heating in both size and structure.As a rule, it is highly burners HiLight, when asbestos based stowed belt member.The design of the burners can additionally contain a powerful halogen lamp, which is when the hob generate much heat, and almost immediately displays the burner at full capacity, even before the main heating element reaches a predetermined mode.It - halogen burners.There is another type of burners - induction in which the heat from the induction unit by electromagnetic waves generated directly at the bottom of the dishes, and she burner thus remains cold (except that from the bottom of the cookware).Halogen and induction hobs, superior in performance all the others are designed to mount only a glass ceramic panel.

As a result, these features allow you to connect the heat transfer to the glass-panel set of functions that simplify and facilitate the process of cooking, as well as save time and electricity consumption.For obvious advantages also provides a wide range of models in design, size, number of burners, the type of control (touch or rotary switches) and the method of installation (dependent / independent).We emphasize ease of maintaining the plate clean, thanks to a smooth surface, and the presence in the sale of special tools for cleaning;Cleaning strong or long-standing pollution attached to the surface of a special scraper.Some aspects of cleaning note under cons.

to the pan, use a panel of glass ceramics must meet certain requirements - a thick and smooth, and the width of the bottom of the pan is not less than the diameter of the cooking zone on which it is installed.These two basic rules protecting the panel from damage and imminent failure.Cooktops with induction hobs require cookware with only magnetizes down, and no other will not do.The recommendations listed below relate to the efficiency of use of the glass ceramic panel.Cookware with copper or aluminum bottom leaves hard traces of metal output in a ceramic pot or glass significantly increases cooking time and temperature is regulated not quick dishes, utensils or unclean wet bottom and add the hassle of cleaning the panel.When purchasing new dishes should be taken with a note "for glass ceramics", then just fine.It remains to note

cons glass ceramic surfaces (panels).About

resistance to accidental impacts glass ceramics can be said that the split and cracks may occur from the point punches from hitting the water on a hot burner (especially splashes of cold water).If wet utensils will be placed on the hotplate still hot from previous, in the future the probability of cracking.

Cons care.It is not allowed to clean and wash the metal brushes and abrasives or sponge / sponge cloth with a nap or by the dish detergent.Surprisingly, but sugar in any form is harmful to the glass-ceramic.It is, firstly, may scratch, but also sinters by changing the surface structure of the ceramic material.Therefore, sugar and other bulk solids need to try to clean up immediately.To make life easier and save vitrified aluminum foil, melted plastic, burnt sugar and other fusible materials should be removed immediately while they are still hot, using a scraper.

Note that neglecting any of the above recommendation or the use of unsuitable utensils can cause scratches on the glass ceramic stains, streaks, scratches, even cracks and chips or discoloration.However, apart from chips and cracks, the rest of the damage will not affect the functionality of the panels, but only the owners would be a shame to see it.
