Induction
How it works
An induction coil is located under each
burner. When a burner is switched on,
this coil creates a magnetic field which
impacts directly on the base of the pan
and heats it up. The burner itself is
heated indirectly by the heat given off
by the pan.
Induction burners only work when a
magnetic based pan is placed on it
(see "Cookware").
Induction automatically recognizes the
size of the pan, i.e. heat is only
generated in the area covered by the
base of the pan.
The burner will not work:
– if it is switched on without a pan in
place, or if the pan is unsuitable
(non-magnetic base).
If a suitable pan is placed on the burner
within 3 minutes, the ß will go out and
you can continue cooking as normal.
If no pan or an unsuitable pan is placed
on the burner, the burner and the
cooktop will switch off automatically
after 3 minutes.
Be careful not to place cutlery or
other metal objects on the cooktop.
When the appliance is switched on,
or when there is residual heat
present, there is the risk of metal
objects heating up quickly.
Beware of burns.
Depending on the material, other
objects left on the cooktop could
also melt or catch fire. Switch the
burners off after use.
– if the diameter of the pan is too small.
– if the pan is taken off the burner
when it is switched on.
If this happens, ß will flash in the
relevant burner display alternating with
0 or the last selected power level
selected.
13
Induction
Noises
When using an induction burner, the
following noises can occur in the pan,
depending on what it is made of and
how it is constructed.
– Higher power settings may cause a
buzz. This will decrease or cease
altogether when the power setting is
reduced.
– If the pan base is made of layers of
different materials (e.g. a
sandwiched base), a cracking sound
may be heard.
– Whistling might occur if linked
burners (see "Booster function") are
being used on the highest setting at
the same time, and the pans have
bases made of layers of different
materials.
– You may hear a clicking sound from
the electronic switches, especially on
lower settings.
14
The appliance has a cooling fan to help
extend the life of the electronics. When
the cooktop is being used at high levels
for a long period of time, this will come
on and you will hear a whirring sound.
The fan may continue to run after the
appliance has been switched off.
Induction
Cookware
Pan size
Suitable pans include:
To make optimum use of the burners,
choose cookware that fits between the
inner and outer marking of the burner. If
the base diameter of the pan is smaller
than the inner marking, the induction
heating will not work. The burner will
behave as if it had no pan on it.
– stainless steel pans with a magnetic
base
– enameled steel pans
– cast iron pans
Unsuitable pans:
– stainless steel pans without a
magnetic base
– aluminum 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.
Unless the pan manufacturer states
that you can do so, do not use pans
with very thin bases on this cooktop.
,Never heat up empty pans.
This could damage the appliance
and cookware.
15
Before using for the first time
Clean the cooktop
Heat the cooktop
^ Before using for the first time, clean
the appliance with a damp cloth and
dry with a soft cloth.
Metal components of the cooktop have
a protective coating which may give off
a slight odor the first time the appliance
is heated.
The smell will dissipate after a short
time and does not indicate a faulty
connection or appliance defect.
16
Use
Touch controls
Turning on the cooktop
The control panel on your ceramic
cooktop is equipped with electronic
sensors. They respond to a finger
touch.
To operate the burners, simply touch
the corresponding sensor area(s). Each
time a command is registered, a signal
will be heard.
^ Put a pot or pan on the desired
burner.
Be sure to touch only the desired
sensor area and keep the control
panel clean and clear. Otherwise,
the touch controls may not respond,
or unintentional commands may be
given, even causing the cooktop to
switch off automatically (see the
section on "Safety cut-out feature").
NEVER place hot cookware on the
sensor areas. The electronics can
be damaged.
^ Touch the ON/OFF "s" cooktop
touch control.
You will see a dash - in each of the
burner displays, and the On/Off
indicator will light. If a setting is not
chosen within a few seconds the
cooktop will turn itself off as a safety
measure.
Turning on a burner
^ Touch the s On/Off touch control for
the desired burner.
The respective burner display shows 0.
^ Select a power level between 1 and 9
by pressing the + or - control.
When turning on the cooktop you can
decide whether you want to cook with
auto heat or not. See "Auto-heat" for
more information.
Turn on with + to:
cook without auto-heat.

Use
Auto-heat
When Auto-heat has been activated,
the burner switches on automatically at
the highest setting and then switches to
the continued power level which was
selected. The "heat-up" time depends
on which continued power level has
been chosen (see table).
Taking a pan off the zone while
Auto-heat is in operation interrupts the
function. It will resume if a pan is
placed back on the zone within
3 minutes.

Activating Auto-heat
^ Press the - sensor until the desired
continued power level appears,
e.g. 6.
At any point during the Auto-heat time
you can use + or - to lower or increase
the continued power level. The
Auto-heat time will adjust accordingly.
In the extended range of settings (see
"Programming - P2"), A flashes
alternately with the continued power
level until the heat-up time has
completed.
During the heat-up time a dot will light
to the right of the continued power
level, and go out when it is completed.
20
Use
Booster function
Each burner is equipped with a booster
function to temporarily increase the
power level. The front left burner is
equipped with a double booster.
When the booster function is on, the
burners increase to power level 9 for
10 minutes. This boost is intended
quickly bring large quantities of water
to the boil, e.g. when cooking pasta.
A maximum of two booster functions
can be used at one time.
If the booster is activated, when
– no power setting is selected, the
burner will revert to power level 9 at
the end of the booster time or when
the booster is switched off.
– a power setting is selected, the
burner will revert to this pre-selected
power setting at the end of the
booster time or when the booster is
switched off.
The extra boost of energy is only
available by taking a proportion of
energy away from another burner. For
this reason, the burners are networked
in pairs as shown.
When the booster is activated:
– if Auto-heat is activated or either
burner of the same network, it will
switch off.
– the power level on the other linked
burner may decrease.
– if the rear left burner is turned on, it
will switch off if booster 2 for the front
left burner is activated.

cooktop should be avoided. If cabinet
storage is necessary, the risk can be
reduced by installing a venting hood to
project horizontally a minimum of 5"
(127 mm) beyond the bottom of the
cabinets.
~ Because of the heat radiated it is not
recommended to install the cooktop
above a drawer. It should be installed
above a cabinet base unit with a
dummy drawer front. A protective base
should also be installed between the
dummy drawer and the cooktop. There
must be a minimum distance of 4 ½"
(110 mm) between the top of the
countertop and the top of the protective
base to ensure proper ventilation.
~ This appliance has not been
designed for maritime use or for use in
mobile installations such as recreational
vehicles or aircraft. However, under
certain conditions it may be possible for
installation in these applications. Please
contact the Miele Technical Service
Department with specific requirements.
~ The cooktop must not be
permanently sealed into the countertop
when installed. The sealing strip under
the edge of the cooktop provides a
sufficient seal for the countertop.
Safety distances above the
appliance
The minimum safety distance given by
the hood manufacturer must be
maintained between the cooktop and
the hood above it. See the installation
instructions of the hood for these safety
measurements.
If the hood manufacturers instructions
are not available or if flammable objects
are installed over the cooktop (e.g.
cabinets, utensil rail, etc.), a minimum
safety distance of 30" (760 mm) must
be maintained.
If there is more than one appliance
beneath a hood (e.g. wok burner
and electric cooktop), and they have
different minimum safety distances
always observe the greater
distance.
~ Once installed, be sure that the
power cord cannot come into contact
with the underside of the cooktop or
any mechanical parts.

Cut out
Installing the cooktop
^ Make the countertop cut-out following
the dimensions given in the
illustration.
Remember to maintain a minimum
distance of 2" (50 mm) between the
rear wall and the right or left side.
See also the "IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS".
^ Feed the cooktop connection cable
down through the cut-out.
^ Seal the cut surfaces with a suitable
heat-resistant sealant to avoid
swelling caused by moisture.
If during installation the seal around
the frame does not sit flush with the
countertop in the corners, the corner
radius, maximum 3/16" (4 mm), can
be carefully filed down to fit.
^ Place the cooktop centrally in the
cut-out. When doing so make sure
that the seal under the cooktop sits
flush with the countertop on all sides.
This is important to ensure an
effective seal. Do not use sealant.
^ Connect the cooktop to the main
power supply.
^ Turn the cooktop on and check the
function.
This cooktop has a seal underneath
to keep it securely in position.
Spring clips are not required. Any
gap between the frame and the
countertop will reduce as the
cooktop is used.
45
Installation
The sealing strip under the edge of the
top part of the cooktop provides a
sufficient seal for the worktop.
