~ After use, switch off the element by its control and do not rely on
the pan detector.
~ Flames can set fire to the grease filters in the exhaust hood.
Never flambé food under an exhaust hood.
~ Spray cans, flammable liquids or flammable materials can ignite if
heated. If there is a drawer below the appliance, do not store
flammable items in the drawer. If there is a cutlery tray below the
cooktop, it must be made of heat-resistant material.
~ Never heat empty cookware.
~ Never use the cooktop to heat closed cans.
The increased pressure can cause the cans to explode.
~ Never cover the cooktop with a board, cloth or protective sheet.
Risk of fire or damage if it is still hot or if switched on inadvertently.
~ If using a small appliance (e.g. a hand mixer) in the vicinity of the
cooktop, make sure that the power cord does not come into contact
with the hot cooktop. The insulation of the cord could get damaged.
10
Safety instructions and warnings
~ If the cooktop is built in behind a cabinet door, it should only be
operated with the door open.
Close the door only when the residual heat indicators have gone out.
~ The cooktop is hot during use and remains so for some time after
being switched off. The risk of burns remains until the residual heat
indicators have gone out.
~ You could burn yourself on a hot cooking zone. Protect your
hands when working with a hot appliance - wear oven mitts or use
potholders. Make sure the material is not wet or damp. This would
increase the transfer of heat to your skin and could cause steam
burns.
~ Metallic objects such as knives, forks, spoons and lids should not
be placed on the hob surface since they can become hot
~ If the cooktop is switched on or accidentally switched on or if it is
still hot, metal objects on the cooktop can heat up.
Other items may melt or catch fire.
Damp lids can become attached to the cooktop by suction.
Do not store items on the cooktop!
Always switch the cooking zones off after use!
~ Do not let sugar, food containing sugar, plastic or aluminium foil
fall on the hot cooktop and melt. They can damage the ceramic
surface when they cool. Switch the cooktop off immediately and
clean with a glass scraper.
Clean the cooktop with a glass ceramic cleaner once it has cooled
down.
~ Never heat an empty pot! This can damage the glass ceramic
surface. Never leave the cooktop unattended during use!
11
Safety instructions and warnings
~ Rough cookware can scratch the glass ceramic surface. Use only
pots and pans with a smooth bottom.
~ Salt, sugar, and grains of sand or dirt (e.g. from fresh vegetables)
between the cookware and the cooktop can cause scratches. Keep
cooktop and cookware clean.
~ Even light objects such as a salt shaker can cause cracks and
chips if they fall on the glass ceramic surface. Do not drop anything
on the glass ceramic surface.
~ Hot objects on the sensor areas or indicators can damage the
electronics underneath. Never place hot pots or pans on the sensor
areas or indicators.
~ Because induction heating works so quickly, the temperature of
the cookware bottom can quickly reach the ignition point of oils and
fats. Never leave the cooktop unattended during use!
~ Do not heat oils and fats for longer than one minute, and never
use the booster.
~ For users who wear a pacemaker:
When the cooktop is in use it is surrounded by an electromagnetic
field. It is unlikely that this will affect a pacemaker.
However, if in doubt consult the manufacturer of the pacemaker or
your doctor.
~ Objects affected by electromagnetic fields, for instance credit
cards, CDs and calculators, should be kept away from the cooktop
when it is on.
12
Safety instructions and warnings
~ Metal objects stored in a drawer under the cooktop can become
hot when the cooktop is in heavy use over a longer period of time.
Do not store metal objects in a drawer under the cooktop!
~ The cooktop is equipped with a cooling fan. If there is a drawer
below the installed appliance, you will need to ensure there is
enough space to allow for ventilation.
Do not use the drawer to store sharp or small objects or paper. They
could pass through or be sucked into the vents in the housing and
damage the fan blades or otherwise interfere with cooling.
~ Never use two pieces of cookware simultaneously on one
cooking zone, one grill zone or one PowerFlex zone.
Cleaning and care
~ Never use a steam cleaner to clean the cooktop.
The steam can reach the electrical components and cause a short
circuit.

Help protect our environment
Disposal of packing materials
Disposal of an old appliance
The cardboard box and packing
materials are biodegradable and
recyclable. Please recycle.
Old appliances contain materials that
can be recycled. Please contact your
local recycling authority about the
possibility of recycling these materials.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of children.
Danger of suffocation!
Before discarding an old appliance
disconnect it from the electrical supply
and cut off the power cord to prevent it
from becoming a hazard.
20
Before the first use
Stick the data plate, which is included with the appliance
documents, on the appropriate place on the cooktop (see
Technical Service).
First cleaning
^ Remove any protective foil and stickers.
^ Before first use, wipe down the appliance with a damp
cloth and dry it.
First use
For facetted cooktops (with bevelled glass edge):
In the first few days after installation, a small gap may be
visible between the cooktop and the countertop. It will
become smaller with use. Despite this small gap, the
electrical safety of your appliance is always ensured.
The metal parts have a protective coating. The first time the
appliance is used, an odour and perhaps some vapour may
be released. During the first hours of use there may also be
an odour from the induction coils. Each subsequent use
reduces the odour and it will ultimately dissipate entirely.
The smell and any vapours do not indicate a faulty
connection or a defective appliance and are not harmful to
your health.
Please note that the heating-up time for induction cooktops
is very much shorter than for conventional cooktops.
21
Induction
How induction works
Under each induction cooking zone there is an induction coil.
When the cooking zone is switched on, the coil generates a
magnetic field that acts directly on the bottom of the
cookware to heat it up. The cooking zone heats up indirectly
from the heat given off by the cookware.
Induction only works with cookware that has a magnetizable
bottom (see Cookware). The induction process automatically
takes into account the size of the cookware being used.
The numbers 1 to 9 flash on the respective settings bar.
– if no cookware or if unsuitable cookware (items without a
magnetizable bottom) is being used.
– if the bottom diameter of the cookware being used is too
small.
– if the cookware is removed from a cooking zone that is on.
If suitable cookware is placed on the cooking zone within 3
minutes, the ß goes out, and you can continue as usual.
If no cookware or if unsuitable cookware is used, the cooking
zone will automatically switch off after 3 minutes.
Risk of burns!
Do NOT use the appliance as a resting place for cutlery or
other items made of metal.
If the appliance is on or accidentally switched on or there
is residual heat, these items might heat up.
Always switch off the cooking zones after use.
22
Induction
Noises
When you use an induction cooking zone, the following
noises may occur, depending on the the type and shape of
the cookware bottom:
– The zone may hum at higher power settings. The humming
will become quieter or disappear if you lower the power
setting.
– Cookware with bottoms made of different materials (e.g.
sandwich bottoms) may produce a crackling noise.
– Whistling may occur if connected cooking zones (see
Booster function) are simultaneously in use and cookware
with bottoms made of different materials are on them.
– The electronics may produce a clicking sound, especially
at lower power settings.
– Whirring sound from the cooling fan. The fan comes on
automatically when the cooking zone gets very hot. The
cooling fan may continue to run after the cooktop is
switched off.
23
Induction
Cookware
Suitable cookware is made of:
– stainless steel with a magnetizable bottom
– enamel-coated steel
– cast iron.
Unsuitable cookware is made of:
– stainless steel with a non-magnetizable bottom
– aluminium or copper
– glass, ceramics, earthenware or stoneware.
If you are not sure whether a pot or pan is suitable for
induction, you can test it using a magnet against the bottom.
If the magnet sticks, the cookware can be used.
Note that the type of cookware bottom you use will have an
effect on how evenly the food cooks.
For optimal efficiency, select cookware that fits between the
innermost and outermost markings on the cooking zone. If the
pot is smaller than the innermost marking, the cooking zone
behaves as if no cookware is on it.
When choosing cookware please note that the maximum
diameter quoted by manufacturers often refers to the
diameter of the top rim of the pot or pan. But the important
diameter is the diameter of the base, which is usually smaller.
Risk of burns!
If the cookware only partially covers the cooking zone, the

25
Use
The basics of use
Your glass ceramic cooktop is equipped with sensors which
respond to touch.
When the cooktop is switched off, only the ON/OFF and
safety lock symbols are visible.
All the other symbols light up when the cooktop is switched
on. On the settings bars the 0 is displayed at brightness level
2 and the numbers 1-9 are displayed at brightness level 1.
When a power level is selected, all the numbers from 0 to the
selected power level are displayed at brightness level 2.
When the booster or the keeping-warm level is selected, the
respective sensors are displayed at brightness level 2.
To operate the cooktop, simply touch the desired sensors. An
audio signal confirms each touch of the sensor.
Take care to keep the control panel clean and do not
place anything on top of it. The sensors may not respond
or unintentional commands may be given, even causing
the cooktop to automatically switch off (see Safety
switch-off).
NEVER place hot cookware on the sensor areas. The
electronics underneath could get damaged.
Keep the control panel clean, do not place any objects on
it, and do not put hot cookware on it.
26

30
Use
Booster
The cooking zones are equipped with a booster or a twin
booster (see Guide to the cooktop).
The booster increases the power so that large quantities can
be quickly heated, e.g. water for cooking pasta. This power
increase is active for a maximum of 15 minutes.
The booster can only be used on two cooking zones at a
time.
If you activate the booster function when
– no power setting has been selected. The cooking zone will
automatically switch to level 9 at the end of the booster
time or if it is switched off before this.
– a power setting has been selected. The cooking zone will
automatically switch to the previously selected power level
at the end of the booster time or if it is switched off before
this.
If you remove the cookware during the booster time, the time
is interrupted. As long as you return the cookware to the
stovetop within 3 minutes, the cooking time will resume.
The cooking zones are connected in pairs in order to provide
sufficient power for the booster.
The connected cooking zone will operate at reduced power
while the booster is on. This results in one of the following:
- Auto heat-up is deactivated
- The power level is reduced
- The connected cooking zone is switched off.
31
Use
During the booster time, the B sensor and all of the numbers
in the settings bar are on at brightness level 2.
Activating the booster
^ Touch "0" on the settings bar of the desired cooking zone.
^ Select a power level, if necessary.
^ Touch the B sensor.
Activating the twin booster
Level 1
^ Touch "0" on the settings bar of the desired cooking zone.
^ Select a power level, if necessary.
^ Touch the B sensor.
The indicator light for twin booster level 1 ¤ comes on.
Level 2
^ Touch 0 on the settings bar of the desired cooking zone.
^ Select a power level, if necessary.
^ Touch the B sensor twice.
The indicator light for twin booster level 2 ¥ comes on.
Deactivating the booster / twin booster
^ Touch the B sensor
- once (for the booster)
- repeatedly until the indicator lights go out (for the twin
booster).
or
^ Select a different power level.
32
Use
Keeping warm
Some cooking zones have a keeping warm level.
This keeping warm level is for keeping food warm that has
just been cooked, i.e. food that is still hot. It is not for
reheating food that has gone cold.
If the keeping warm level has been activated, the cooking
zone will switch off automatically after a maximum of 2 hours.
Switching the keeping warm level On/Off
^ Touch the 2 sensor for the desired cooking zone.
Tips
– Keep the food warm in the cookware (pots/pans). Cover
the cookware with a lid.
– It is not necessary to stir the food while it is being kept
warm.
– Loss of nutrients begins with the preparation of the food
and continues while it is being kept warm. The longer food
is kept warm, the greater the loss of nutrients. The
keeping-warm time should therefore be as short as
possible.
33
Use
Switching off and residual heat display
Switching a cooking zone off
^ Touch 0 on the settings bar of the desired cooking zone.
After several seconds the numbers 1 to 9 on the settings bar
go out. If the cooking zone is still hot, the residual heat will be
displayed.
Switching the cooktop off
^ Touch the s sensor.
This switches off all the cooking zones. All the sensors go out.
Residual heat display
If there is residual heat, the numbers 1 to 9 on the settings
bar go out after several seconds. The residual-heat displays
of the burners that are still hot come on.
The bars in the residual heat display gradually disappear as
the cooking zones cool down. The 0 will go out at the same
time as the last bar.
Risk of burns!
Do not touch the cooking zones while the residual heat
indicators are on.
34
Tips for saving energy
– Whenever possible, keep pots and pans covered while
cooking. This helps to limit the loss of heat.
open
closed
– For small quantities, choose small cookware. A small pot
requires less energy than a larger, only partially filled pot.
– Cook with as little water as possible.
– Once food has come to the boil or the pan is hot for frying,
reduce the heat to a lower power setting.
– The cooking time can be reduced significantly by using a
pressure cooker.
35
Timer
The cooktop must be switched on to use the timer.
The timer can be used for two different functions:
– To set the minute minder
– To set a cooking zone to switch off automatically.
You can select a time from 1 minute (01) to 9 hours (9^).
A time up to 99 minutes is set and displayed in minutes.
Example
With a time of more than 99 minutes, the timer must be
switched to hours. The time is set in half-hour steps. The half
hour is indicated by a dot after the number.
Example (2 hours 30 minutes):
When the set time has elapsed, 00 appears in the timer
display and an audio signal sounds for a few seconds.

Safety features
Safety lock / System lock
Your cooktop is equipped with a safety lock to prevent the
cooktop and the cooking zones from accidentally being
switched on or their settings changed.
The safety lock can be activated when the cooktop is
switched on. When activated, the cooktop has only limited
functions:
– The cooking zone power levels and the timer settings
cannot be changed.
– The cooking zones, the cooktop and the timer can be
switched off, but cannot be switched on again.
The system lock can be activated when the cooktop is
switched off. When the system lock is activated, the cooktop
cannot be switched on and the timer cannot be used.
The appliance is programmed so that the system lock must
be activated manually.
It can be programmed to be activated automatically
5 minutes after the cooktop has been switched off, if the lock
is not manually activated first (see Programming).
If a locked sensor switch is touched when the safety lock or
the system lock is activated, the indicator light comes on and
the timer display shows LC for a few seconds.
By default the locks are programmed for three-finger control.
You can change the default to one-finger control (see
Programming).
If there is a power interruption, the safety lock and the
system lock will be deactivated.

Safety features
Overheat protection
All the induction coils and the cooling elements for the
electronics are fitted with overheating protection. Before the
induction coils or cooling elements get too hot, the
overheating protection initiates the following measures:
Induction coils
– If the booster function is being used, this will be switched
off.
– The power level that is set will be reduced.
– The cooking zone switches off automatically.
FE flashes in the timer display alternately with 44.
You can use the cooking zones again as usual when the fault
message has gone out.
Cooling elements
– If the booster function is being used, this will be switched
off.
– The power level that is set will be reduced.
– The cooking zones switch off automatically.
The affected cooking zones can only be used again if the
cooling element has cooled down to a safe level.
Overheating can be caused by:
– heating empty cookware.
– fats or oils being heated at high power settings.
– insufficient ventilation of the underside of the cooktop.
– a hot cooking zone being switched on after a power
outage.
If, despite elimination of the cause, the overheat protection is
triggered again, contact Miele Customer Service.
46
Cleaning and care
Risk of injury
Never use a steam cleaner to clean the cooktop.
The steam can reach the electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
Clean the appliance after each use. Let it cool down before
cleaning.
To avoid limescale deposits, after each cleaning use a soft
cloth to dry the surfaces.
To avoid damaging the surfaces, do not use any
– dishwashing liquid,
– cleaning products that contain washing soda, acids/alkali,
ammonia, or bleach,
– limescale removers,
– stain and rust removers,
– abrasive cleaners such as scouring powder, scouring
liquid or pumice stones,
– cleaners containing solvents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– grill and ovensprays,
– glass cleaners,
– scouring brushes and sponges (such as pot scrubbers) or
used sponges that still contain abrasive cleanser residue,
– magic erasers,
– sharp objects
(they could damage the seals between the ceramic and
the frame or between the frame and the countertop).
47
Cleaning and care
Do not use dishwashing liquid for cleaning. When cleaning
with a dishwashing liquid, not all contaminants and
residues are removed. The result is an invisible film, which
leads to discolouration of the ceramic surface. This
discolouration cannot be removed.
Clean the cooktop on a regular basis with a special
ceramic cleaner.
First wipe down the surface with a damp cloth to loosen
soiling, then remove stubborn crusting with a glass scraper.
Next, clean the cooktop with the Miele ceramic and stainless
steel cleaner (see "Optional accessories") or a commercial
ceramic cleaner and paper towel or a clean cloth. Do not
apply cleaner to a hot cooking zone as this can leave spots.
Follow the instructions of the manufacturer of the cleaning
product.
Finally, wipe the cooktop with a damp cloth, then wipe dry.
Cleaner residues will burn into the cooktop during
subsequent uses, damaging the glass ceramic. Ensure that
all cleaner residues are removed.
Spots from lime deposits, water, and aluminium deposits
(shimmering metallic spots) can be removed with a glass
ceramic and stainless steel cleaner.
Risk of burns!
Wear oven mitts and use a glass scraper to remove sugar,
plastic or aluminium residues from the hot cooktop.
If sugar, plastic, or aluminium foil fall onto a hot cooking
zone, switch the appliance off. Immediately, while the zone is
still hot, use a glass scraper to thoroughly remove the spill
from the cooking zone.
Once the cooking zone has cooled off, clean thoroughly as
described above.
48
Programming
You can change the programming of your cooktop (see
chart). You can change several settings one after the other.
After starting the programming function P (Program), an S
(Status) will appear in the timer display. With cooktops that
have 3 cooking zones, an additional display appears at the
back left.
The program is displayed in the front left and back left
settings bars. Example:
Program 3 = front left 3, back left 0
Program 14 = front left 4, back left 1
The status is displayed in the front right settings bar.
When programming is completed, a reset is carried out
automatically. This is completed when the indicator above the
s sensor comes on briefly.
Do not switch the cooktop on again until reset is
completed.

The Miele|home system
The Miele{home system allows communication-enabled
appliances to send status information to a display device via
the electrical supply system (powerline technology).
SuperVision appliances can display status information from
other domestic appliances. The main status is displayed for
your cooktop: On, Off, Fault.
Status information for domestic appliances can be displayed
and some controls operated within the home network area on
a PC, Notebook or iPod* / iPhone* (mobile terminals) via a
Miele|home gateway.
The following information could be displayed for your
cooktop: Power level of each cooking zone, minute minder,
switching-off time for each cooking zone. The only available
control command is to switch the cooktop off.
* iPod und iPhone are registered trade marks of
Apple Inc.
Con{ctivity is the communication between the cooktop and
the hood. Operation of the hood occurs automatically
depending on the status of the cooktop.
The cooktop sends information on its status to the hood via
the household electrical supply.
To enjoy the benefits of this feature, your appliance must be
fitted with a communications module.
You can find detailed information on the Miele|home system
on the Internet at miele-at-home.de.

Safety clearances
Safety clearance to a wall covering
A safety clearance must be maintained between the countertop cut-out and any
wall covering to protect it from heat damage.
If the covering is made of a combustible material (e.g. wood), a safety clearance
e of 50 mm must be maintained between the cut-out and the covering.
If the covering is made of a non-combustible material (e.g. metal, natural stone,
ceramic tiles), a minimum safety clearance e of 50 mm less the thickness of the
covering must be maintained between the cut-out and the covering.
Example: 15 mm wall covering
50 mm - 15 mm = 35 mm minimum clearance
