Induction & Ceramic Built-In Cooktops: Installation Tips & General Guidelines

For the longevity of your appliance, it is crucial to properly install by following all the guidelines in the user manual. For detailed specifications about the appliance, please check its respective spec sheet.

Installation Tips for Induction & Ceramic Built-In Cooktops

For the purpose of this article, we will refer to the user manual of Linärie’s Toulouse LS80I2F1Z.
Cut out the work surface according to the sizes shown in the respective user manual. For best results of the installation and use, a minimum of 5 cm space shall be preserved around the hole. Be sure the thickness of the work surface is at least 30mm.
Please select heat resistant and insulated work surface material (wood and similar fibrous or hygroscopic material shall not be used as work surface material unless impregnated) to avoid the electrical shock and larger deformation caused by the heat radiation from the hotplate. The adhesive that joins the plastic or wooden material of the furniture, MUST be heat resistant of not below 150ºC.
The safety distance between the sides of the cooktop and the inner surfaces of the worktop should be at least 3mm.

The installation should comply with all clearance requirements and applicable standards regulations. A suitable isolating switch providing full disconnection from the mains power supply is incorporated in the permanent wiring, mounted and position to comply with the local wiring rules and regulations.
The safety distance between the hotplate and the cupboard above the hotplate should be at least 60mm. The rear wall, adjacent and surrounding surfaces must be able to withstand a temperature of 90°C. If the cooktop is installed above an oven, the oven must have a cooling fan.
There are ventilation holes around outside of the cooktop. Make sure the Induction cooktop is well ventilated and the air inlet and outlet are not blocked. YOU MUST ensure these holes are not blocked by the worktop when you put the cooktop into position.

Choosing the Right Cookware

In general, a cookware that is slightly wider, the heat will be distributed at its maximum efficiency. If a smaller cookware is used, heat distribution efficiency could be less than expected. Cookware that is less than 140 mm could be undetected; therefore, always center the cookware on the cooking zone.
How to know if the cookware is suitable for induction cooktops? When shopping for cookware, look for the ‘induction-compatible’ symbol at the bottom of the cookware, or use a magnet to test if it sticks to the bottom of the cookware; if it sticks, it’s compatible.

While induction cooktop requires specific types of cookware, on the other hand, all types of cookware suit ceramic cooktops.
