How do you use it?
Adjust heat to medium or lower when using on 200V induction heater. The time it takes to boil may vary depending on the type of induction heater.
- Do not use the pot in a dishwasher.
- Do not use for deep frying.
- Do not use an induction heater cover as it could cause the temperature sensor to malfunction.
- Dry well before use or the remaining moisture could cause breakage when heated.
- Do not heat without water.
- The handle and lid will be hot when heated.
- Use mittens to hold. Do not touch or place directly on the table after using an induction heater as the heating element on the bottom surface of the pot will be very hot.
- Hold the pot with both hands when carrying as the ceramic pot is heavy.
- Do not touch with a wet cloth or put in a wet place while it is hot as rapid cooling may cause breakage.
- Do not heat with water filled up to the rim. If content boils over, wipe and clean the bottom surface of the pot thoroughly as the heating element may break if used unclean.
- Mix food well and prevent contents from burning on the bottom of the pot as the heating element may break if burning recurs. If the pot becomes burnt, boil water in the pot, add 1 tablespoon of baking soda and simmer in low heat for 2-3 minutes, let it cool down and rub with a melamine sponge.
