The zoneLight induction cooktop is characterised by an animated blue light matrix underneath the glass ceramic. Once the first pot is placed on the cooktop, the user interface is activated and follows the user’s activities. The automatic zone selection recognises the position of the cook-ware and ensures full-surface heating. If pans or pots are moved, all setting values are transferred from the original position to the new cooking zone. This means the cooktop hardly needs to be operated.
