IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation and connection
When using your appliance, follow
basic safety precautions including
the following:
Read all instructions before using
for the first time.
Be certain your appliance is
properly installed and grounded by
a qualified technician.
To guarantee the electrical safety
of this appliance, continuity must
exist between the appliance and an
effective grounding system. It is
imperative that this basic safety
requirement be 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 damages 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
meet the safety requirements of this
appliance.
Before servicing, disconnect the
power supply by either removing
the fuse, unplugging the unit or
manually "tripping" the circuit breaker.
4
Correct usage
Do not operate the appliance until
properly installed in the countertop.
This appliance is intended for
residential use only.
Use the appliance only for its
intended purpose. The
manufacturer cannot be held
responsible for damages caused by
improper use of the cooktop.
Never use the appliance to warm
or heat the room.
This appliance must not be set up
or operated outdoors.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Protection from damage
Do not drop anything on the
ceramic surface of the cooktop.
Although the ceramic glass is shock
and scratch resistant, it is not shock or
scratch proof.
Do not use pots or pans with bases
with pronounced edges or ridges
on the ceramic cooktop. These could
permanently scratch or scour the
cooktop. Grains of salt and sand can
also scratch the surface.
Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean the appliance. Steam could
penetrate electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
In areas subject to infestation by
cockroaches or other vermin, keep
the appliance and its surroundings
clean at all times. Any damage caused
by pests will not be covered under the
warranty.
Do not allow either solid or liquid
sugar, pieces of plastic or
aluminium foil to get on the cooking
zones when they are hot. If these
residues are allowed to cool on the
ceramic surface, pitting or cracking
could occur. Should sugar, plastic or
aluminium fall on to the cooktop, first
turn the appliance off, then immediately
scrape off the remains with a shielded
blade scraper while the surface is still
hot. Take care not to burn yourself on
the hot surface. Clean the cooktop
once it has cooled.
5
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Protection from burns
Do not allow children to operate or
play with or near the cooktop.
Use only dry, heat-resistant
potholders. Moist or damp
potholders used on hot surfaces can
result in steam burns. Do not let the
potholder touch the hot heating
element. Do not use towels or other
bulky items near the appliance.
Loose fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using
the appliance.
Do not heat unopened food
containers. Built-up pressure may
cause the container to burst and result
in injury.
Do not store items on the
appliance when not in use.
Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate
on the appliance.
Do not leave the cooktop
unattended while in use.
Overheated food can ignite.
6
Do not use water on grease fires.
Smother any fire or flame, or use a
dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Do not flambé under an exhaust
hood. Flames could be drawn up
into the hood by the suction or the
grease filters may ignite.
If there is a drawer directly
underneath the appliance without
any wooden base in between, ensure
that no aerosols, combustible liquids or
other easily flammable materials are
kept in it. If cutlery inserts are to be
placed in the drawer, these must be
made of heat-resistant material.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

11
Before using for the first time
Cleaning and heating for the
first time
Before using the appliance for the first
time, clean it with a damp cloth and
then dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use liquid dish soap. This
can leave a permanent blue sheen
on the ceramic surface.
12
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight odor
the first time your new appliance is
heated.
The odor and any vapors will dissipate
after a short time and do not indicate a
faulty connection or appliance defect.
Using the cooktop
Turning on and off, residual
heat indicator
Turning on the variable burner:
When the burner is up to temperature,
the residual heat indicator light will
illuminate. The indicator light will go out
once the cooktop temperature has
reached a safe level.
Do not touch or lay any
heat-sensitive objects on the
cooktop while the residual heat
indicator light is still on. Danger of
burning and fire!

15
Using the cooktop
Overheating protection
Each cooking zone is equipped with
overheating protection (internal
temperature limiter). This turns off the
heating elements in the cooking zone if
the ceramic surface becomes too hot.
Once the ceramic has cooled down to
a safe level, the heat will automatically
turn back on.
16
The heating elements cycle on and off
to maintain a constant temperature.
Using the cooktop
Tips on saving energy
– Use pots and pans with flat or slightly
concave bases for the most efficient
cooking. The pan base should rest
evenly on the ceramic surface when
hot. Uneven bases can lengthen
cooking times and cook food
unevenly.
– Cooking with a lid will also help
prevent heat loss.

Cooking can be completed using
the residual heat of the burners by
turning the cooktop off 10 - 15
minutes before the food is finished.

17
Cleaning and care
Under no circumstances should a
steam cleaner be used to clean this
appliance. Pressurized steam could
cause permanent damage to the
surface and to components for
which the manufacturer cannot
accept responsibility.
Do not use any sharp pointed
objects which could damage the
seal between the ceramic surface,
the surrounding frame and the frame
and the countertop.
Never use scouring agents, pads,
abrasive cleaning agents or strong
cleaners, e.g. oven sprays, stain or
rust removers, as these could
damage the surface of the
appliance.
Do not use liquid dish soap on the
ceramic surface, as it can leave a
blue sheen on the surface which
may be difficult to remove.
The ceramic surface can be cleaned
using a cleaner for ceramic
surfaces. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions on the packaging.
Make sure that no cleaner residue
remains on the ceramic surface by
carefully wiping the cooktop with a
damp cloth. Cleaner residues could
damage the cooktop when heated.
After cleaning, thoroughly dry the
ceramic surface with a soft cloth to
prevent a build up of limescale
deposits.
18
The ceramic surface should be cleaned
regularly, preferably after each use.
Allow the cooktop to cool down before
cleaning. Wipe spills off using a damp
cloth. Stubborn spills are best removed
with a shielded scraper blade. Apply a
cleaner for ceramic surfaces using a
soft cloth or paper towel. This will
remove any limescale deposits and
metallic marks (aluminium deposits). A
cleaner with a special additive to
prevent water marks and smears on the
ceramic surface can be used. Wipe the
cooktop surface with a damp cloth and
dry with a clean soft cloth.
Should any sugar, plastic or
aluminium foil spill or fall onto the
cooktop while it is in use, use a
shielded scraper blade to scrape it off
while the surface is still hot. Take care
not to burn yourself. Allow the cooktop
to cool down and then clean with a
suitable ceramic cooktop cleaner.
