Warning and Safety Instructions
Warning and Safety Instructions
Warning:
When using your cooktop, follow
basic safety precautions including
the following:
Read all instructions before using
the cooktop.
Use the cooktop only for its intended purpose.
Be sure your appliance is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified technician or electrician.
Before servicing, disconnect the
power supply by removing the fuse
or tripping the circuit breaker.
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective grounding system. It is imperative that this
basic safety requirement is met. If there
is any doubt, have the electrical system
of the house checked by a qualified
electrician. The manufacturer cannot
be held responsible for damage
caused by the lack or inadequacy of
an effective grounding system.
Do not connect the appliance to
the main electrical supply using
an extension cord. Extension cords do
not guarantee the required safety of
the appliance.
Never use the cooktop to warm or
heat the room.
When using an electrical outlet
near the cooktop, make sure that
the cable of the appliance does not
come into contact with the burners of
the unit.
6
Do not allow children to operate or
play with or near the unit.
Store all toys away from the unit to
prevent injury to curious or playful
children.
Please remember that, in use, the
burners will become hot. Ensure
that children do not touch them.
Do not store items on the cooktop
when not in use.
Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate
on the cooktop.
Never leave the unit unattended
when cooking with oil or fat. Very
hot oil can cause a fire.
Allow sufficient time for the burners
to cool before touching or exposing surface areas to flammable materials.
If cracks or crevices appear in the
burners, immediately turn off the
cooktop and contact the Miele Service
Department or your local service dealer.
Avoid spilling liquids or food containing salt on a stainless steel
cooktop. Should this happen, wipe up
any spills immediately. Otherwise discoloration of the steel could occur.
Always cook pork thoroughly to ensure that, in the event of trichina,
all bacteria will be killed and the meat
is safe to eat.
Warning and Safety Instructions
Warning and Safety Instructions
Use pots and pans that are the
same size as the cooktop heating
elements.
When high settings are used, remain near the cooktop in case
splattering grease or liquid boil overs
cause smoke.
Only use dry potholders.
Only use cookware suitable for
range-top service. Unsuitable
cookware may break due to sudden
temperature changes.
Always position the handle of the
cookware toward the center of the
range to minimize burns, and spillage.
Before removing pots and pans,
be sure to turn the cooktop ”OFF“.
Always heat oil slowly, so it doesn’t
bubble over.
When frying foods, make sure that
the food is as dry as possible to
prevent moisture from causing hot oil to
bubble over.
When shallow or deep frying, do
not overfill the pan with oil.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Smother any fire or flame or use a
dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Do not store items of interest to
children in cabinets above or behind the cooktop – children climbing on
the cooktop to reach items could be
seriously injured.
Do not use a steam-cleaner to
clean the cooktop.
The steam could penetrate electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
Save these instructions and review
them periodically.
Disposal of an old appliance
Before disposing of an old appliance, turn it off at the main
power connection and disconnect and
remove the appliance cord. This is intended to prevent the discarded appliance from becoming a hazard.
Text highlighted in boxes is of particular importance and should be
read in conjunction with the Warning and Safety instructions.
Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting
or hanging garments should never
be worn while using the appliance.
Do not attempt to repair or replace
any part of the appliance unless
specifically recommended in this manual. All other servicing should be refered to a qualified technician.

Cooktop controls
Cooktop controls
By using the individual burner control
knobs, temperatures can be freely selected.
The controls can be turned either clockwise or counter clockwise.
The indicator lamp for each burner
lights as soon as the respective control
knob is turned to a setting.
It will go out when the contol knob is
turned to the ”0“ position.
A resistance can be felt between settings 7 and 8 to indicate that the high
temperature range is being entered.
Recommended settings
Correct procedure:
Place the pot of food on the burner.
Select a high setting for boiling or
searing meat.
Once steam appears on the edge of
the lid, turn to a lower setting for continued cooking.
Reducing the temperature at the correct time . . .
. . . prevents food from overcooking.
. . . prevents food from burning.
. . . saves energy.

Burner description
Burner description
Safety thermostat
All burners are equipped with safety
thermostats that prevent them from
overheating.
The thermostats may trip
. . . if unsuitable cooking pots are used.
For example, pots with uneven bases
or which are too small.
. . . when burners are used without a
pot or pan.
10
Burner operation
Burner operation
Place a pan on the burner before
turning on the appliance. This will
protect the burner and save energy.
The surface of the burner and the base
of the pan should be clean and dry.
Turning on the burners
Turn the control knob to the maximum
setting for 1-2 minutes to allow the burners to rapidly heat up. Once hot, turn
the control knob to the desired cooking
setting, using the table on the previous
page as a guide.
After cooking
The burners will remain hot for some
time after being turned off.
By turning the burners off early, the residual heat of the burner can be used
to continue cooking the food or keeping it warm.
Do not place any wet objects on the
burners. If the burners get wet,
wipe off the moisture and turn them
on briefly so they dry.
This will prevent rust from forming.
11
Burner operation
The following tips are designed to enable you to
Pot size
. . . make the best use of energy when
using your cooktop.
. . . prevent food from boiling over and
burning onto the cooktop.
Saucepan bases
The diameter of the pot should be
slightly larger than the burner.
Burner
diameter
(in inches / cm)
suitable
pot diameter
(in inches / cm)
5-3/4 14.5
7-1/8 18.0
6-5/16 16
7-7/8 20
Pot lids
For optimum energy consumption during cooking, only pots with flat or
slightly concave bases should be
used. When the pot is hot, the base
should rest evenly on the burner.
When purchasing new pots and pans,
ensure that they are suitable for use on
this type of cooktop.
A lid on the pot will prevent heat from
being lost.
12
Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
To prevent spills from burning on to the
cooktop, clean the burners and cooktop surface immediately in the event of
a spill.
Burners
Make sure no moisture or soil penetrates inside the burners. Wipe off any
spilt food with a damp cloth once the
burners have cooled. Use a plastic
scouring pad if necessary for stubborn
spills. The burners can be scoured, but
not the rim or cooktop surface.
Remove any residue from the burners
after cleaning.
To dry the burners turn them on for
a short time.
It is important that they are dry in
order to prevent rust from forming.
Occasional treatment with a thin film of
oil, or a special cleaner for solid burner
plates is recommended.
Burner trim
Do not use abrasive cleaners to
clean the trim. Clean the trim using
an appropriate metal or stainless
steel cleaner.
Cooktop surface
Avoid spilling liquids or foods containing salt onto the stainless steel
cooktop. Should this occur, wipe up
any spills immediately.
Otherwise discoloration of the steel
could occur.
Remove dust, oils and fats, food spills
or condensed water from pots and
pans immediately to prevent them from
drying on. Dried-on food residues are
easier to remove if they are first softened with hot water.
Clean the cooktop surface using hot
water and dishwashing liquid.
Do not use scouring agents or
pads, knives or hard brushes.
These will scratch the surface of the
cooktop.
Do not use cleaners containing
acids. A stainless steel cleaner can
be used on the cooktop surface.
Control panel / Control knobs
Do not use any scouring agents or
pads on the knobs or control panel.
Clean the cooktop controls and control
panel with hot water and dishwashing
liquid.
After cleaning, rub dry with a soft cloth.

Repairs to electrical appliances
should only be performed by a
trained technician. Unauthorized repairs could be dangerous.
Some minor problems, can be resolved
as follows:
What to do if . . .
. . . a resistance is felt between settings 7 and 8?
This is normal. The resistance is there
to indicate that the higher temperature
range has been entered.
