The display normally shows the actual temperature of the inner kettle, but a keypress gives access to display and alter the temperature setpoint. This is set quickly and precisely between 1-120°C. The large arrows change the setting by 10°C, while the small arrows change the setting by 1°C. The heating power is controlled automatically to ensure that the temperature setpoint is
The speed and stirring pattern of the stirrer are easily controlled using the keys on the second line of the control panel. 7 dynamic stirring patterns are available and the speed can be adjusted to between 5 and 140 RPM.
Certain stirring patterns have a limited speed, determined by the purpose of the stirring pattern. The stirring patterns available include continuous stirring in both directions and several stirring patterns with variable reversals and pauses. These stirring patterns are intended for normal stirring, gentle stirring and powerful stirring/mashing. One stirring pattern is optimised for cleaning using the cleaning tool.
The stirring patterns are designed to automatically adjust to the set stirring speed and therefore always operate optimally. Slow stirring gives fewer reversals and longer pauses, while fast stirring gives more reversals and shorter pauses. Combined with the option to set the speed from 5 to 140 RPM, this unique function gives excellent results, regardless of whether you need effective, fast and powerful stirring or gentle, slow stirring.
For safety reasons, the stirrer will stop when the lid is opened. When the SlowMix option is selected, the stirrer can however rotate slowly with an open lid while a key is held down and the kettle is tilted. This simplifies emptying and gives more uniform results if the food is to be divided between several containers. The control has a time based waterfilling integrated water flow meter and water is added to the kettle by setting the required quantity and starting the filling process. Filling stops automatically when the required quantity of water has been added. If the water pressure is constant the amount can be calculated from the time. This is done in the users menu. Is a more accurate measurement demanded, the kettle can as an accessory be fitted with a water meter.
Small quantities of water are best added manually. Water is added to the kettle when the key is held down and the quantity added is shown in the display to one decimal place. The water passes through a large drip-free spout on the pillar.
The timer function stops the heating supply and activates an alarm at a set time or after a set period of time. The time is shown in the display and a visual or audible alarm can be connected if desired. The kettle’s tilt function is operated using keys on the control panel and the TiltBack function means that the kettle will automatically return slightly after tilting is stopped.
This minimises overrun during emptying and makes pouring easier. WaterLevelAutomatic ensures that the water level in the kettle’s steam generator is correct. This prevents unnecessary stoppages and also prevents the kettle from boiling dry.
As an option, the kettle can be set up so that the food is chilled in the kettle after preparation.
The chilling process uses water from the mains supply.
Considerable water savings can be made with the static chilling steps from 1 to 9, which are selected in the user menu. If a low value is set, the chilling process will save water but it will also be slower.
Operation of the chilling function is integrated into the control panel and after the completion of chilling the kettle’s steam chamber is emptied of excess water and the kettle is automatically readied for heating again. The user must therefore not operate any handles or valves when starting/stopping.
