SA711XA-1 - 70cm Ceramic Cooktop

The highly-efficient cooking surface of a Smeg electric ceramic cooktop will achieve full heat in seconds. Smeg ceramic cooktops are highly-efficient cooking surfaces. They are at their most efficient with flatbased cooking vessels. Smeg recommends stainless steel exterior based vessels — that is, the surface be of stainless steel. This flat stainless steel surface will help preserve the unblemished look of the ceramic surface and help avoid scratching and permanent marking. High-quality cast-iron surfaces may also be suitable.


The ribbon element rests on a microthermic insulation bed which is moulded to a corrosive-resistant metal dish. The sides of this dish are further insulated by a bonded ceramic fibre wall. All this insulation ensures that the energy (heat) created is not dissipated or radiated outward and downward but vertically to the ceramic cooking zone.


For improved energy and time efficiencies, when a heat setting is selected for a particular zone, full power is applied for a very brief initial phase before it returns to the preselected heat level. This pre-emptive heat aid is referred to as ‘go and stop’ in the cooktop’s accompanying instruction booklet.


Each zone can be preset with an individual cooking duration (up to 99 minutes). This timed cooking can be selected for respective different times on different zones — that is, all zones can be operated simultaneously and at different time settings. When the individual zone’s timed cooking duration elapses, the controls will flash ‘00’ and an audible signal will emit.


The cooktop’s controls can also be used as an independent, variable countdown timer with audible end signal. Range is one through 99 minutes.


For safety, the cooktop will default to ‘OFF’ in any extreme conditions, such as a continuous overflow of boiling fluids or a utensil cooking its contents dry. Cooking can only be resumed after the fault has been cleared from the electronic LED safeguards. Also for safety reasons, cooking cannot resume automatically — it must be manually restarted.
