Efficient Use of your Hob
The hob is equipped with zones of different sizes, designed to
accommodate most shapes and sizes of pan. For best results,
only use pans with flat bottoms and choose an appropriate zones
depending on the size of the pan. The most efficient use of the hob is
shown below, where the pan and zones are correctly chosen.
Use pan lids where possible to minimize the energy usage of your
appliance.
Turn off each zone a few minutes before the end of cooking time.
The residual heat in the zones will continue to cook the food for the
remaining cooking time.

It is very important that the pans used on the hob are made of a
suitable material and have the correct type of base. The base should
be flat and smooth, as any rough part on the pan base could scratch
the ceramic hob top.

Choose pans which are between the sizes recommended in the table
above, and with bases that are as non-reflective as possible, e.g. dull
and dark.
Only pans recommended for use on ceramic hobs should be used.
Care and Maintenance

Fitting The Hob
Unpacking the hob:
Take care not to lose or mishandle any parts.
Fitting position of the hob:
This appliance must be installed a minimum of 50mm from any
back wall and a minimum of 190mm away from any adjacent vertical
surfaces, e.g. a tall cupboard end panel. This may be reduced to
100mm if the adjacent surface is resistant to fire (tiles or steel, for
example). These dimensions are shown in Fig.4.
If fitting a cooker hood above the hob:
If a cooker hood is to be installed above the hob, the height of the hood
above the hob must be at least 600mm (650mm is recommended) (Fig.5).
If the instructions supplied with the hood dictate that the hood must be
installed at a height greater than 600mm, then that height is the minimum
required.

If fitting a cooker hood above the hob:
If a cooker hood is to be installed above the hob, the height of the hood
above the hob must be at least 600mm (650mm is recommended)
(Fig.5). If the instructions supplied with the hood dictate that the hood
must be installed at a height greater than 600mm, then that height is the
minimum required.
Wall furniture requirements:
The minimum height of any cabinet immediately above the hob is
900mm. The minimum height of any adjacent units (including light
pelmets) is 400mm, unless they are manufactured from a material
resistant to fire (steel, for example).
Notes:
• Do not position this appliance above a refrigeration unit. The heat
generated may cause the refrigeration unit to fail.
• This appliance is designed to be installed into cabinet units capable
of withstanding temperatures of 65°C or greater above ambient
temperature.
• If there is no oven to be built in below the hob, an isolation shelf should
be fitted to protect the user from high temperatures. If the hob is to be
installed above a working drawer, then a partition should be fitted to
protect the contents and user from the heat generated during use. This
should be fitted 100mm below the hob.
• Never place perishable foods in the cupboard below the appliance.
