Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ For people fitted with a heart
pacemaker:
Please note that the area immediately
surrounding the cooktop is
electromagnetically charged, and that
this could affect a pacemaker.
If in any doubt, consult the
manufacturer of the pacemaker or your
doctor.
~ To prevent damage to items which
are susceptible to magnetic fields, e.g.
credit cards, diskettes, pocket
calculators etc., do not leave them in
the immediate vicinity of the cooktop.
~ The appliance gets hot when in use
and remains hot for quite a while after
being switched off. There is a danger of
burning until the residual heat
indicators go out.
~ Do not leave the appliance
unattended whilst it is in use.
Pans that have boiled dry can cause
damage to the ceramic surface for
which the manufacturer cannot be held
liable.
Boiling fat or oil could ignite and cause
a fire.
~ If oil or fat does catch fire, do not
attempt to put out the flames with water.
Use a suitable fire blanket, saucepan
lid, damp towel or similar to smother the
flames.
~ For added protection, it is advisable
to use heat-resistant pot holders or
gloves when using the appliance. Do
not let them get damp or wet, as this
causes heat to transfer through the
material more quickly with the risk of
scalding or burning yourself.
~ Do not flambé under a rangehood.
The flames could set the rangehood on
fire.
~ Do not use the appliance as a
resting place for anything else.
Take particular care never to place
cutlery or other metal objects on the
appliance. When the appliance is
switched on either deliberately or by
mistake, or when there is residual heat
present, there is the risk of metal
objects heating up, with a danger of
burning.
Depending on the material, other
objects left on the cooktop could also
melt or catch fire.
Damp pan lids might adhere to the
ceramic surface and be difficult to
dislodge.
Switch the cooking zones off after use.
~ Installing several appliances
Do not place any hot pots or pans near
the spacer bar as they could damage
the sealing strip of the spacer bar.
~ Do not cover the appliance, e.g.
with a cloth, kitchen foil, etc. This could
be a fire hazard if the appliance is
switched on by mistake.
~ Do not use plastic or aluminium foil
containers. These melt at high
temperatures and could catch fire.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not heat up unopened tins of
food on the cooktop as pressure will
build up in the tin, causing it to
explode. This could result in injury and
scalding or damage.
~ Do not use pots and pans on the
ceramic cooktop with bases with
pronounced edges or ridges, e.g. cast
iron pans. These could scratch or scour
the cooktop surface permanently.
~ Never heat an empty pan unless the
manufacturer of the pan expressly
states that you can do so. Because
induction heating works extremely
quickly, the base of the pan could heat
up to the temperature at which oil or fat
self-ignites within a very short time.
~ Keep the cooktop clean. Grains of
salt, sugar and sand (e.g. from
cleaning vegetables) can cause
scratches.
~ Never place hot pans on the area
around the controls. This could damage
the electronic unit underneath.
~ Do not drop anything on the ceramic
surface. Even a light object could
cause damage in certain
circumstances.
10
~ Do not allow either solid or liquid
sugar, or pieces of plastic or aluminium
foil to get onto the cooking zones when
they are hot. If this should occur, switch
off the appliance, and carefully scrape
off all the sugar, plastic or aluminium
residues from the cooktop whilst they
are still hot, using a shielded scaper
blade.
Take care not to burn yourself.
Once the residues have been removed,
allow the appliance to cool down, and
then clean with the Original Miele
ceramic and stainless steel cooktop
cleaner.
~ When using an electrical appliance,
e.g. a hand-held mixer, near the
cooktop, ensure that the connection
cable doesn't come into contact with
the cooktop. The insulation on the cable
could become damaged, giving rise to
an electric shock hazard.
~ This appliance is fitted with a
cooling fan. If a drawer is fitted directly
underneath the cooktop, ensure that
there is sufficient space between the
drawer and its contents and the
underside of the appliance in order to
ensure sufficient ventilation for the
cooktop. Do not store pointed or small
items or paper in the drawer. They
could get in through the ventilation slots
or be sucked into the housing by the
fan and damage the fan or impair
cooling.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not store flammable materials in
the appliance storage drawer or near
this appliance. Cutlery inserts must be
heat-resistant.
~ Do not spray aerosols in the vicinity
of this appliance while it is in operation.
~ Metal utensils stored in a drawer
under the cooktop can become hot if
the induction cooktop is used
intensively for a long time.
~ Never simultaneously use two pans
on the one cooking zone.
~ If the cooktop is built in over a
pyrolytic oven, the cooktop should not
be used whilst the pyrolytic process is
being carried out, as this could trigger
the overheating protection mechanism
on the cooktop (see relevant section).
Miele cannot be held liable for
damage caused by non-compliance
with these Warning and Safety
instructions.
~ If the cooktop is built-in behind a
furniture door, it must only be operated
when the door is open.
Close the furniture door only once the
appliance has been switched off and
the residual heat indicators have gone
out.
11
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances /
machines often contain materials
which, if handled or disposed of
incorrectly, could be potentially
hazardous to human health and to the
environment. They are, however,
essential for the correct functioning of
your appliance or machine. Therefore,
please do not dispose of your old
machine or appliance with your
household waste.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance or the machine to prevent
misuse.
12
Before using for the first time
Please stick the extra data plate for the
appliance supplied with this
documentation in the space provided in
the "After sales service" section of this
booklet.
Cleaning for the first time
^ Remove any protective wrapping and
adhesive labels.
^ Before using for the first time, clean
the appliance with a damp cloth only
and then wipe dry.
Do not use washing up liquid to
clean the ceramic surface as it can
leave a blue sheen which may be
difficult to remove.
Before using for the first time
When the induction cooktop is first
connected, and after a power cut, all of
the indicators in the display light up for
approx. 1 second for testing purposes.
The appliance can be used as soon as
the indicators go out.
When the appliance is used for the
first time, it may give off a slight
smell. The smell and any vapours will
dissipate after a short time.
They do not indicate a faulty
connection or appliance, and they
are not harmful to your health.
Please note that the heating-up time
of induction cooktops is much shorter
than that of conventional cooktops.
13
Induction
The induction principle
An induction coil is located under each
cooking zone. When a cooking zone is
switched on, this coil creates a
magnetic field which impacts directly
on the base of the pan and heats it up.
The cooking zone itself is heated up
indirectly by the heat given off by the
pan.
An induction cooking zone only works
when a ferromagnetic pan is placed on
it (see "Pans").
Induction automatically recognises the
size of the pan, i.e. heat is only
generated in the area covered by the
base of the pan.
If no pan or an unsuitable pan is placed
on the cooking zone, the cooking zone
will switch off automatically after 3
minutes. 0 and C will flash alternately in
the display.
To use the cooking zone again, first
turn the control to "0".
Take particular care never to place
cutlery or other metal objects on the
cooktop. When the appliance is
switched on either deliberately or by
mistake, or when there is residual
heat present, there is the risk of
metal items heating up with the
danger of burning.
The cooking zone will not work:
– if it is switched on without a pan in
place, or if the pan is unsuitable
(non-magnetic base).
– if the diameter of the base of the pan
is too small.
– if the pan is taken off the cooking
zone when it is switched on.
If this happens, ß will flash in the
display.
If a suitable pan is placed on the
cooking zone within 3 minutes, ß will go
out and you can continue as normal.
14
After use, switch off the cooking
zone by its control and do not rely
on the pan detector.
Induction
Noises
When using an induction cooking zone,
the following noises can occur in the
pan, depending on what it is made of
and how it has been constructed:
– On the higher power settings, it
might buzz. This will decrease or
cease altogether when the power
setting is reduced.
The appliance has a cooling fan to help
extend the life of the electronics. When
the cooktop is being used intensively,
this will come on and you will hear a
whirring sound. The fan may continue
to run after the appliance has been
switched off.
– If the pan base is made of layers of
different materials (e.g. in a
sandwiched base), it might emit a
crackling sound.
– Whistling might occur when two
cooking zones are in use and the
bases of the pans are made of layers
of different materials and one of the
linked cooking zones is being
operated with its Booster function.
– You might hear a clicking sound from
the electronic switches, especially on
lower settings.
15
Induction
Pans
Pan size
Type of pans
Please be aware that the properties of
the pan base can affect the eveness
with which food heats up in the pan.
Suitable pans include:
– stainless steel pans with a magnetic
base
– enamelled steel pans
– cast iron pans
Unsuitable pans:
– stainless steel pans without a
magnetic base
– aluminium and copper pans
– glass, ceramic or earthenware pots
and pans
To test whether a pot or pan is suitable
for use on an induction cooktop, hold a
magnet to the base of the pan. If the
magnet sticks, the pan is suitable.
16
To make optimum use of the cooking
zones, choose pans with diameters
larger than the innermost markings but
smaller than the outermost markings. If
the diameter of the pan is smaller than
the innermost marking, the induction
heating will not work. The zone will
behave as if it had no pan on it.
Please note that the maximum diameter
quoted by manufacturers often refers to
the diameter of the top rim of the pot or
pan. The diameter of the base
(generally smaller) is more important.
Place pans in the centre of the
cooking zone.
If a pan's base sits only partly on the
cooking zone, handles can become
very hot.
Operation
Switching on and off
Residual heat indicator
Each cooking zone is switched on by
turning the control clockwise a to the
power setting required, and is switched
off by turning the control
anti-clockwise b to "0".
The residual heat indicator remains on
until the cooktop is cool enough to
touch.
Do not touch or place any
heat-sensitive objects on the
cooking zones while the residual
heat indicators are on. Danger of
burning!
Do not turn the control to "0" by
turning it clockwise past BI or BI/II.
When a cooking zone is switched on,
the in-operation indicator lights up.
Once it has reached a certain
temperature, the residual heat indicator
also lights up.
After the appliance has been switched
off, the in-operation indicator goes out.

When Auto heat-up has been activated,
the cooking zone switches on
automatically at the highest setting and
then switches to the continued cooking
setting which you have previously
selected. The heat-up time depends on
which continued cooking setting has
been chosen (see chart).
^ Turn the control anti-clockwise as far
as it will go, and hold in that position
until A appears in the display.
If the control is held in this position
for too long, L will appear in the
display and the system lock will be
active (see "System lock").
^ Turn the control clockwise to the
continued cooking setting required.
If a continued cooking setting is not
selected within five seconds, Auto
heat-up will not be active.
Changing the continued cooking
setting is only possible within 10
seconds after activation of Auto
heat-up. After this time, a change to
deactivation of Auto heat-up occurs.
An A lights up in the display during the
Auto heat-up phase.
As the higher continued cooking
settings are generally used for frying
food, only a relatively short heat-up time
is needed to heat up the pan initially.
Taking a pan off the zone whilst Auto
heat-up is in operation interrupts Auto
heat-up. It will resume if a pan is placed
back on the zone within 3 minutes.
19
Operation
Booster function
The cooking zones are equipped with
Single (l) or TwinBoosters (I/II) (see
"Guide to the appliance").
When activated, the power is boosted
so that large quantities can be heated
quickly, e.g. when boiling water for
cooking pasta. When Booster l and
Booster II are activated, the cooking
zones will operate with extra power for
10 minutes.
The extra boost of energy is only
available by taking a proportion of
energy away from another cooking
zone. For this reason, the cooking
zones are networked in pairs as shown.
Example:
The Booster function can only be used
on two cooking zones at the same time,
one on the left and one on the right.
When the Single Booster/TwinBooster
setting 1 is switched on, the following
happens to the connected cooking

Operation
Keeping warm function
Useful tips
Each cooking zone has a keeping
warm function.
Only use pans for keeping food warm.
Cover the pan with a lid.
If the keeping warm function has been
activated, the cooking zone will switch
off automatically after a maximum of
2 hours.
You do not have to stir food while it is
being kept warm.
This function 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.
22
Nutrients are lost when food is cooked,
and continue to diminish when food is
kept warm. The longer food is kept
warm for, the greater the loss of
nutrients. Try to ensure that food is kept
warm for as short a time as possible.
Tips on saving energy
– Use a lid whenever possible to
minimise heat loss.
Uncovered
Covered
– Select a smaller pan when cooking
small quantities. A small pot requires
less energy than a larger, less filled
pot.
– Cook with as little water as possible.
– Reduce the power setting once the
water has come to the boil or the oil
is hot enough to fry in.
– Cooking times can be significantly
reduced with a pressure cooker.

Safety features
Overheating protection
All the induction coils and the cooling
elements for the electronics are fitted
with an overheating protection
mechanism.
To prevent the induction coils and
cooling elements from overheating, the
overheating protection mechanism
works on the affected cooking zone or
on the entire cooktop in the following
ways:
– If the Booster function is being used,
this will be switched off.
– The power setting will be reduced.
– If an induction coil is affected, the
cooking zone with that coil will be
switched off and an H will appear in
the display.
Other cooking zones may switch off
shortly afterwards.
^ Turn the control for the affected
zone(s) to "0".
The cooking zone can only be used
again as usual after the H has gone out.
– If the temperature rises after the
power supply has been reduced, the
cooking zones will switch off.
Other cooking zones may switch off
shortly afterwards.
C and 0 will flash alternately in the
display.
^ Turn the control for the affected
zone(s) to "0".
The cooking zones can be used again
as soon as they have cooled down to a
safe level.
Overheating can be caused by:
– heating up an empty pan
– fats or oils being heated up on the
highest power setting
– Insufficient ventilation to the
underside of the appliance
If the overheating protection
mechanism triggers again, contact
Miele.
If the control is not turned back to "0", C
and 0 will flash in the display
alternately. To use the cooking zone
again, first turn the control to "0".
– If the cooling element is affected, the
power supply to the cooking zones
will be reduced.
As soon as the cooling element has
cooled down sufficiently, the cooking
zones will continue operating at the
original power setting.
25
Cleaning and care
,Do not use a steam cleaning
appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach the electrical
components and cause a short
circuit.
The appliance should be cleaned
regularly, preferably after each use.
Allow it to cool down to room
temperature before cleaning.
To avoid water marks and limescale
deposits, use a soft cloth to dry
surfaces that have been cleaned with
water.
To avoid damaging the outer
surfaces of your appliance, do not
use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
alkalines, ammonia, acids or
chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– stain or rust removers,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– grill and oven cleaners,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges,
e.g. pot scourers, brushes or
sponges which have been previously
used with abrasive cleaning agents,
– dirt erasers,
– sharp, pointed objects which could
damage the seal between the
ceramic surface and the surrounding
frame, and between the frame and
the worktop.
26
Cleaning and care
Ceramic surface
Do not use washing-up liquid to
clean the ceramic surface. Using
washing-up liquid will not remove all
soiling and an invisible film will be left
behind which will result in a
permanent discolouration of the
ceramic surface.
Clean the cooktop regularly with a
special ceramic cleaning agent.
Wipe all coarse soiling off using a
damp cloth. Stubborn soiling may need
to be removed with a shielded scraper
blade.
Then clean the cooktop with the
Original Miele ceramic and stainless
steel cooktop cleaner (see "Optional
accessories"), applied with kitchen
paper or a clean cloth. Do not apply
cleaner whilst the cooktop is still hot, as
this could result in marking. Please
follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Finally, wipe the cooktop with a damp
cloth, then polish with a soft, dry cloth.
Ensure that all cleaner residues are
removed. Residues can burn onto the
appliance the next time it is used, and
cause damage to the ceramic surface.
Should any sugar, plastic or
aluminium foil spill or fall onto a hot
cooking zone while it is in use, first
switch off the appliance. Then carefully
scrape off all the sugar, plastic or
aluminium residues from the cooking
zone whilst it is still hot, using a
shielded scraper blade. Take care not
to burn yourself.
Allow the appliance to cool down, and
then clean as described above.
Stainless steel
The Original Miele ceramic and
stainless steel cooktop cleaner is
suitable for cleaning stainless steel
surfaces (see "Optional accessories").
To help prevent resoiling, we
recommend a stainless steel
conditioner (see "Accessories").
Apply sparingly with a soft cloth.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning
agents on printed surfaces. This
would rub off the print. These areas
should only be cleaned with a
microfibre cloth or with a solution of
warm water and a little washing-up
liquid applied with a soft sponge.
Spots caused by limescale, water and
aluminium residues (spots with a
metallic appearance) can be removed
using the Original Miele ceramic and
stainless steel cooktop cleaner.

All dimensions in this instruction booklet
are given in mm.
Safety clearances
Safety clearance above the cooktop
When two or more appliances are
installed together below a
rangehood, e.g. an electric cooktop
and a gas wok combiset, which
have different safety clearances
given in the installation instructions,
you should select the greater
clearance of the two.
A minimum safety clearance must be
maintained between the cooktop and
the rangehood above it. See the
rangehood manufacturer's operating
and installation instructions for details.
If the manufacturer's instructions are
not available for the rangehood, a
minimum safety clearance of at least
760 mm must be maintained. For any
flammable objects, e.g. utensil rails,
wall units etc., a minimum clearance of
at least 760 mm must be maintained
between them and the cooktop below.
33
Safety clearances
Side / rear clearances to the cooktop
Ideally the cooktop should be installed
with plenty of space on either side.
There may be a wall at the rear and a
tall unit or wall at one side. On the other
side, however, no unit or divider should
stand higher than the cooktop (see
illustrations).
Before installing the appliance, check
that the below clearance requirements
are met.
Not allowed
a The horizontal distance from the
back edge of the cooktop to a
vertical surface shall be 50 mm
mimimum.
b The horizontal distance from the

Preparing the worktop
^ Make the worktop cut-out for one or
more appliances as applicable.
Remember to maintain a minimum
safety distance from the back wall,
as well as from any tall unit or side
wall to the right or left of the
appliance.
See "Safety clearances".
^ Seal the cut surfaces with a suitable
heat-resistant sealant to avoid
swelling caused by moisture.
Make sure these materials do not
come into contact with the surface
of the worktop.
If, during installation, you find that the
seals on the corners of the frame are
not flush with the worktop surface,
the corner radius (ß R4) can be
carefully scribed to fit.

42
^ Then fill gap e between the spacer
bars and the worktop with silicone.
Installing/removing the appliance(s)
Installing the appliance
^ Feed the connection cable down
through the cut-out.
^ Place the appliance into the worktop
cut-out, starting with the front of the
appliance.
^ Using both hands, press down
evenly on the sides of the appliance
until it clicks into position. When
doing this, make sure that the seal
sits flush with the worktop on all
sides. This is important to ensure an
effective seal all round. Do not use
sealant.
When installing several appliances, a
cover must be inserted into the spacer
bar.
^ Slide the installed appliance to one
side until you can see the holes of the
spacer bar.
^ Place the appliance into the worktop
cut-out, starting with the front of the
appliance.
^ Connect the appliance to the mains
electricity (see "Electrical
connection").
^ Check that the appliance works.
Removing the appliance
If the appliance is accessible from
below, push it out from underneath,
starting at the back.
In stubborn cases, or if the appliance is
not accessible from below, use a
cooktop lever (available from Miele) to
lift up the cooktop. To prevent damage
to the worktop, position a cloth or
similar under the cooktop lever.
Warning: Do not use a screwdriver to lift
up the cooktop as this will damage the
appliance.
^ Insert the cover d into the holes of
the spacer bar b.
43
General installation tips
Seal between the appliance and the
worktop
The sealing strip under the edge of the
top part of the appliance provides a
sufficient seal for the worktop.
Do not use any additional sealant
(e.g. silicone) between the
appliance and the worktop.
This could cause difficulties if the
appliance ever needs to be taken
out for servicing and possibly result
in damage to the appliance or the
worktop.
44
Tiled worktop
Grout lines a and the hatched area
underneath the appliance frame must
be smooth and even. If they are not, the
appliance will not sit flush with the
worktop and the sealing strip
underneath the appliance will not
provide a good seal between the
appliance and the worktop.
