The invention discloses a method for the induction cooktop heating zone automatic preselection step for the cooking function (heating), based on the cookware placement detection on the defined cooking zone.

Based on the induction cooktop cooking zones configuration forms, the solution comprises the application of one low power induction sensory pulse system, could detect the cookware replacement time on the determinate cooking zone and cookware presence over the each cooking zone area, enabling by this the cooking zone automatic preselection for the cooking process, after while the same zone become available for the heating power level setting by HUI interface (the slider) and the user itself.

Accordingly, the invention implements a semi-automatic start of the induction cooking process, considering that a sensory system enables the cooking zone preselection (first step), afterwhile the user should perform the power level selection (second step), enables the cooking process beginning and performing.
