Yes, but we recommend to use it together with the app. When Ztove cookware is used on a regular cooktop it cannot regulate the temperature automatically. Through the app you are able to see the temperature, but you don’t have the option to control it. For full control of your cookware you need a Ztove induction plate as well.
Temperatures for surface preparation are very new. However, most are used to temperature when cooking in an oven. In general, the air in the oven can be warmer without burning the food (as quickly) as a frying pan would do at the same temperature. The pan’s surface has a much better “grip” in the roasting crust.
There are recipes in the Ztove app with temperature control. In addition, we have aquick guidethat lists temperatures that you can use when making your own recipes. Your recipes can also be saved in the app and you can share recipes with others if you like.
To extend the life of your cookware, you should not use metal utensils on your frying pan or saucepan. You should avoid sharp-edged utensils and avoid cutting, sticking, or scraping directly into the pan. It will destroy the non-stick coating of the cookware.
Ztoves cookware has a typical battery life of 1-2 years, depending on usage patterns. There is 1 x CR2032 battery in the handle.
In the app under the “devices” tab you can see the remaining capacity of the battery next to the cookware (in percentage).
If the lamp in the handle does not light when moving and the app indicates that the battery has run out of power, it needs to be replaced by using the following procedure:
1) Use a coin to unlock the battery cover by turning left.
2) Turn the handle over, drop the battery and insert a new battery.
3) Insert the battery cover and screw to the right with the coin.
This is because you have not assigned any cookware to any of the zones.
On the control page of the app, tap the zone to which you want to assign the cookware. When the cookware is assigned to a zone, turn on the induction cooktop and set the selected zone to “9”. Now you have full temperature control in the app.
