13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension
lead. These do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
~ Do not use the hob if it is faulty, or if
the ceramic surface is cracked,
chipped or damaged in any way.
Switch it off immediately, and
disconnect it from the mains electricity
supply. Danger of electric shock.
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other
vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the appliance and its
surroundings in a clean condition at all
times. Any damage caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
Correct use
~ 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 Miele 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.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up
the room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects near the appliance
could catch fire. The life of the
appliance could also be reduced.
~ The control panel and the hob frame
or hob edges (on hobs with bevelled
edges) can become hot due to the
influence of the following factors:
operating duration, high power level(s),
large pans and the number of cooking
zones being used.
~ 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.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not flambé under a cooker hood.
The flames could set the cooker hood
on fire.
~ Do not use the appliance as a
resting place for anything else. 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 hob 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.
~ 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.
~ Do not heat up unopened tins of
food on the hob, 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 hob with bases with
pronounced edges or ridges, e.g. cast
iron pans. These could scratch or scour
the hob surface permanently.
~ Aluminium pans or pans with an
aluminium base can cause metallic,
shiny marks to appear on the ceramic
surface. These marks can be removed
using a ceramic and stainless steel hob
cleaner (see "Cleaning and care").
~ Never heat an empty pan unless the
manufacturer of the pan expressly
states that you can do so. This could
damage the appliance.
~ Keep the hob 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. The electronic unit
underneath could get damaged.
~ Do not drop anything on the ceramic
surface. Even a light object could
cause damage in certain
circumstances.
~ To prevent the risk of spillages etc.
burning on, remove any soiling as
quickly as possible and ensure that pan
bases are clean, dry and free of
grease.
~ 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 hob whilst they are
still hot, using a shielded scraper
blade.
Take care not to burn yourself.
If residues are allowed to cool before
being removed, the ceramic surface
would be susceptible to pitting or even
cracking.
Clean the appliance once it has cooled
down.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
~ When using an electrical appliance,
e.g. a hand-held food blender, near the
appliance, ensure that the cable of the
electrical appliance cannot come into
contact with the hot appliance. The
insulation on the cable could become
damaged, giving rise to an electric
shock hazard.
~ If the appliance is installed behind a
~ Spray canisters, aerosols and other
inflammable substances should not be
stored in a drawer under the hob.
Cutlery inserts must be heat-resistant.
Miele cannot be held liable for
damage caused by non-compliance
with these Warning and Safety
instructions.
~ Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated. Some
foods may contain micro-organisms
which are only destroyed by thorough
cooking at a sufficiently high
temperature for long enough.
Therefore, when cooking or reheating
food such as poultry, it is particularly
important that the food is completely
cooked through. If in doubt, select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
16
kitchen furniture door, it may only be
used with the furniture door open.
Only close the door when the appliance
is switched off and the residual heat
indicators have gone out.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and should be recycled.
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.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
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.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
17
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, data plate" 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.
Before using for the first time
On hobs with bevelled glass edges, a small gap may be
visible between the hob and the worktop during the first
few days after installation. This gap will reduce with time as
the appliance is used and will not affect the electrical
safety of your appliance.
The metal components have a protective coating which may
give off a slight smell when heated up for the first time.
The smell and any vapours given off do not indicate a faulty
connection or appliance, and they are not harmful to health.
18
How the cooking zones work
Single circle cooking zones have one heating element, whilst
double circle (vario) cooking zones and extended zones have
two. Depending on model, the heating elements may be
separated by an isolating ring.
Each cooking zone has overheating protection (a
temperature limiter), which stops the ceramic surface from
becoming too hot (see "Overheating protection").
When a power level is selected, the heat switches on and the
element can be seen through the ceramic surface.
The temperature of the cooking zones depends on the power
level selected, and is electronically regulated. This controls
the "timing" of a cooking zone, switching the element on and
off.

Operation
How the hob is operated
The hob is equipped with electronic sensor controls which
react to finger contact.
To operate the hob, touch the relevant sensor. Each time you
touch a sensor, an audible tone sounds.
In order to set or alter a power level or the time, the cooking
zones and the timer must be "active".
To activate a cooking zone or the timer, touch the sensor for

Exception:
If only one of the cooking zones is in operation, you can alter
the power level without activating the cooking zone.
Take care to keep the control panel clean and do not
place anything on top of it. The sensors may fail to react or
they could mistake the article or any dirt for a fingertip
contact, thereby activating a function or even causing the
hob to switch off automatically (see "Safety switch-off".)
Never place hot pans on the sensors. The electronic unit
underneath could get damaged.
20

Operation
Auto heat-up
When Auto heat-up has been activated, the cooking zone
switches on automatically at the highest power setting and
then switches to the continued cooking setting selected. The
heat-up time depends on which continued cooking setting
has been chosen (see chart).
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.

Operation
Switching the outer circle of a double circle / extended zone on
and off
When cooking with larger pans, the outer circle of a double
circle/extended zone (see "Guide to the appliance") can be
switched on to provide an extended cooking area.
When the outer circle of a double circle/extended zone has
been switched on, the indicator lamp will light up while the
power level is flashing in the cooking zone display. The
indicator lamp will go out when the power level lights up
constantly in the display.
The extended cooking area will switch off when the cooking
zone is switched off.
To switch on:
^ Touch the sensor for selecting the cooking zone you want.
^ Select the power level you require.
^ While the power level is flashing, touch the n sensor.
To switch off:
^ Touch the sensor for selecting the cooking zone you want.
The power level will flash in the cooking zone display and the
indicator lamp for the extended cooking area will light up
constantly.
^ Touch the n sensor repeatedly until the indicator lamp
goes out.
25
Operation
Switching off and residual heat indicators
Switching off a cooking zone
^ Touch the sensor for selecting the cooking zone you want
twice.
A 0 will flash in the cooking zone display for a few seconds. If
the cooking zone is still hot, the residual heat indicator will
then appear in the display.
Switching off the hob
^ Touch the s sensor.
This switches off all cooking zones. The residual heat
indicator will appear in the display of any cooking zone which
is still hot.
Residual heat indicators
The lines of the residual heat indicator go out one after
another as the cooking zone cools down. The last horizontal
line only goes out when the cooking zone is safe 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 and fire hazard.
If there is an interruption to the power supply, the residual
heat indicators will flash on and off.
26
Suitable pans
– Most suitable
The best pans for use on a ceramic hob are those with a
thick base which is very slightly concave when cold. When
heated, the base flattens to rest evenly on the hob,
optimising the conduction of the heat.
cold
hot
– Less suitable
Pans made of glass, ceramic or stoneware are less
suitable, as they do not conduct the heat so well.
– Not suitable
Dishes or containers made from plastic or aluminium foil
must not be used as these melt at high temperatures.
– Aluminium pans or pans with an aluminium base can
cause metallic, shiny marks to appear on the ceramic
surface. These marks can be removed using a ceramic
and stainless steel hob cleaner (see "Cleaning and care").
– Do not use pots and pans on the ceramic hob with bases
with pronounced edges or ridges, e.g. cast iron pans.
These could scratch or scour the hob surface permanently.
– Lift pans into position on the hob. Sliding them into place
can cause scuffs and scratches.
– Often the maximum diameter quoted by manufacturers
refers to the diameter of the top rim of the pot or pan. The
diameter of the base (generally smaller) is more important.
27
Tips on saving energy
– Check that the diameter of the pan base is wide enough
for the cooking zone so that heat is not lost unnecessarily.
too small
suitable
– Use a pan lid whenever possible to minimise heat loss.
uncovered
covered
– Select a smaller pan when cooking small quantities. A
small pan on a small cooking zone uses less energy than a
large, partially filled pan on a large cooking zone.
– Cook with as little water as possible.
– Once food has come to the boil or the oil in the pan is hot
enough for frying, reduce the heat to a lower setting.
– When cooking for a long time, switch the cooking zone off
about 5 to 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
In this way, use is made of the residual heat.
– Cooking times are greatly reduced when using a pressure
cooker.
28
Timer
The hob must be switched on to use the timer.
The timer can be used for two different functions:
– to set the minute minder
– to set a cooking zone to switch off automatically.
You can select a time from 1 minute (01) to 9 hours (9^).
A time of up to 99 minutes is set and displayed in minutes.
Example:
To set a time of more than 99 minutes, the timer must be set
to hours (h). The time is then set in half hour stages. The half
hour is indicated by a dot after the number.
Example (2 h 30 min):
h
When the set time has elapsed 00 will appear in the timer
display. At the same time an audible tone will sound for a few
seconds.

Timer
To switch a cooking zone off automatically
You can set a time at the end of which a cooking zone will
switch off automatically.
All the cooking zones can be programmed at the same time.
If the time programmed is longer than the maximum
operational time allowed, the cooking zone will switch off
after the maximum time allowed (see "Safety switch-off").
^ Select a power level for the cooking zone you require.
^ Touch the m sensor repeatedly until the indicator lamp for
this cooking zone flashes.
If more than one cooking zone is switched on, the indicator
lamps will flash clockwise beginning with the front left zone.
^ Set the time you want.
The time set will then count down in minutes. The time
remaining will be shown in the timer display. You can change
this at any time.
If you want to set another cooking zone to switch off
automatically, follow the same steps as described above.
If more than one switch-off time is programmed, the shortest
time remaining will show in the display, and the
corresponding indicator lamp will flash. All the other indicator
lamps will light up constantly. If you want to check on the time
remaining for another zone, touch the m sensor repeatedly
until the indicator lamp for the zone you require flashes.
33
Timer
To use both timer functions at the same time
The minute minder and automatic switch-off functions can be
used at the same time.
If you have programmed in one or more switch-off times, and
would like to use the minute minder as well:
Touch the m sensor repeatedly until the indicator lamps for
the cooking zones you have programmed light up constantly
and 00 appears in the timer display.
If you are using the minute minder, and would like to
programme in one or more switch-off times as well:
Touch the m sensor repeatedly until the indicator lamp for
the cooking zone you require flashes.
Shortly after the last entry, the timer display switches to the
function with the shortest remaining time.
If you want to show the times remaining which are counting
down in the background, touch the m repeatedly until
- the indicator lamp for the cooking zone you want flashes
(automatic switch-off).
- only the timer display is flashing (minute minder).
Starting with the shortest time remaining which is shown in
the display, all cooking zones which are switched on and the
minute minder are selected clockwise.

Safety features
Safety lock / System lock
Keep children away from the hob for their own safety.
Your appliance is equipped with a safety lock to prevent the
hob and the cooking zones being switched on or any settings
being altered.
The safety lock is activated when the hob is switched on. If
the safety lock is activated:
– The cooking zone power levels and the timer settings
cannot be changed.
– The cooking zones, the hob and the timer can be switched
off, but once switched off cannot be switched on again.
The system lock is activated when the hob is switched off. If
the system lock is activated, the hob cannot be switched on
and the timer cannot be used.
The hob is programmed in such a way that activating the
system lock has to be done manually. The setting can be
changed so that the system lock is activated automatically
five minutes after the hob has been switched off, providing it
is not activated manually (see "Programming").

Safety switch-off if the sensors are covered
Your hob will switch off automatically if one or several of the
sensors remain covered for more than about 10 seconds, for
example by finger contact, food boiling over, or by an object
such as an oven glove or a tea towel.
An F will flash in the timer display. At the same time a tone will
sound every 30 seconds (for a maximum of 10 minutes).
^ Clean the control panel or remove the obstruction.
This will turn off the tone and the F will go out. You can now
use the hob again.
37
Safety features
Overheating protection
Each zone is equipped with overheating protection (internal
temperature limiter). This switches off the heating elements in
the cooking zone before the ceramic surface overheats.
If the heating element switches on and off even when the
highest power level is selected, this indicates that the
overheating protection mechanism has triggered.
Once the ceramic surface has cooled down to a safe level,
the heating element will automatically switch back on again.
Overheating can be caused by:
– a cooking zone being switched on without a pan on it.
– heating up an empty pan.
– the base of a pan not sitting evenly on the cooking zone.
– the pan not conducting heat properly.
38
Cleaning and care
For Miele branded cleaning and conditioning products see
"Optional accessories".
,Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this
appliance. The steam could reach electrical components
and cause a short circuit.
The appliance should be cleaned after each use. Let it 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 surface of your appliance, do not
use:
– washing-up liquid,
– 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,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp, pointed objects which could damage the seal
between the ceramic surface and the surrounding frame,
and between the frame and the worktop.
39
Cleaning and care
Do not use washing-up liquid to clean the ceramic surface.
Washing-up liquid will not remove all soiling and deposits.
It will form an invisible coating which will cause permanent
discolouration of the ceramic surface.
Clean the hob regularly with a suitable ceramic hob
cleaner.
Wipe all coarse soiling off using a damp cloth. Stubborn
soiling may need to be removed with a shielded scraper
blade.
Then clean the hob with Miele ceramic and stainless steel
hob cleaner (see "Optional accessories") applied with kitchen
paper or a clean cloth. Do not apply cleaner whilst the hob is
still hot, as this could result in marking. Please follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
Finally, wipe the hob with a damp cloth, then polish with a
soft, dry cloth. Ensure that all cleaner residues are removed.
Residues can burn onto the hob the next time it is used, and
cause damage to the ceramic surface.
Spots caused by limescale, water and aluminium residues
(spots with a metallic appearance) can be removed using
Miele's ceramic and stainless steel hob cleaner.
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 hob whilst they are 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.
40

47
To test the power level
You can test the power level of a cooking zone by measuring
how long it takes to bring a specific amount of water to the
boil.
The pan (and lid) must be stainless steel or enamel. The
diameter of the pan must match the cooking zone, and be
flat-bottomed or slightly concave.
^ Take a note of the diameter and wattage of the cooking
zone to be tested (see "Guide to the appliance - Cooking
zones").
^ Fill the pan with the quantity of water given in the table. The
temperature of the water should be approx. 20°C.
^ Put the lid on the pan and place the pan on the cooking
zone.
^ Switch on the cooking zone at the highest power level.
^ Note the time it takes for the water to boil.
The power level for the cooking zone is correct if the water
boils within the time given in the table.
The time can vary if:
- there is low or excess voltage.
- very cold water is used.
- an unsuitable pan is used.
- the pan is not covered.

connection box, this gap must be at
least 30 mm.
A minimum safety distance must be
maintained between the appliance and
the cooker hood above it. See the
cooker hood manufacturer's operating
and installation instructions for details.
If the manufacturer's instructions are
not available for the cooker hood, a
minimum safety distance of at least
760 mm must be maintained. For any
flammable objects, e.g. utensil rails,
wall units etc. a minimum distance of at
least 760 mm must be maintained
between them and the appliance
below.
When two or more appliances are
installed together below a cooker
hood, e.g. a gas wok and a ceramic
hob, which have different safety
distances given in the installation
instructions, you should select the
greater distance of the two.

Safety instructions for installation
Safety distances to the sides and
back of the hob
Ideally the hob should be installed with
plenty of space on either side. There
may be a wall at the rear and a tall unit
or wall on one side (right or left) (see
illustrations).
a Minimum distance of 50 mm
between the back of the worktop
cut-out and the rear edge of the
worktop.
Not allowed
b Minimum distance of 50 mm
between the right of the worktop
cut-out and the nearest piece of
furniture (e.g. tall unit) or a wall.
c Minimum distance of 50 mm
between the left of the worktop
cut-out and the nearest piece of
furniture (e.g. tall unit) or a wall.

Safety instructions for installation
Safety distance when installing the appliance near a wall with additional
niche cladding
A minimum safety distance must be maintained between the worktop cut-out and
any niche cladding to protect it from heat damage.
If the niche cladding is made from a combustible material (e. g. wood) a
minimum safety distance e of 50 mm must be maintained between the cut-out
and the cladding.
If the niche cladding is made from a non-combustible material (e. g. metal,
natural stone, ceramic tiles) a minimum safety distance e of 50 mm less the
thickness of the cladding must be maintained between the cut-out and the
cladding.
Example: 15 mm niche cladding
50 mm - 15 mm = minimum safety distance of 35 mm

Seal between the hob and the
worktop
The sealing strip under the edge of the
top part of the appliance provides a
sufficient seal for the worktop.
Grout lines a and the hatched area
underneath the hob frame must be
smooth and even. If they are not the
hob will not sit flush with the worktop
and the sealing strip underneath the
hob will not provide a good seal
between the hob and the worktop.
The hob must not be sealed with
sealant (e.g. silicone).
This could result in damage to the
hob or the worktop if the hob ever
needs to be removed for servicing.

Installation
Worktops made of wood
The exact positions of the spring
clamps, and the safety brackets for
hobs with bevelled edges, are shown
in the building-in dimensions for the
particular hob.
Hobs with bevelled edges:
The sealing strip will ensure that the
hob sits securely in the cut-out. Any
gap between the frame and worktop
will reduce with time.
^ Seal the cut surfaces with a suitable
heat-resistant sealant to avoid
swelling caused by moisture.
Make sure that the sealant does not
come into contact with the top of the
worktop.
^ Make the worktop cut-out according
to the dimensions given in the
building-in dimensions. Remember to
maintain the minimum safety
distances (see "Safety instructions
for installation").
^ Depending on model, place spring
clamps a (supplied) on the upper
edge of the cut-out or for hobs with
bevelled edges, safety brackets b
(supplied) flush with the upper edge
of the cut-out.
^ Secure the spring clamps a or
safety brackets b using the
3.5 x 25 mm wood screws supplied.
60
Installation
Granite and marble worktops
You will require double-sided tape
and silicone (not supplied).
^ Apply silcone to the side edges and
the lower edges of the spring clamps
and safety brackets.
^ Fix the spring clamps (or safety
brackets for hobs with bevelled
edges) in place using double-sided
tape c.
The spring clamps must rest on the
top edge of the cut-out and the safety
brackets must be flush with the top
edge of the cut-out.
61
Installation
Installing the hob
^ Feed the hob connection cable down
through the cut-out.
^ Position the hob on the spring
clamps.
^ Using both hands, press down
evenly on the sides of the hob until it
clicks into position. When doing this,
make sure that the seal under the
hob sits flush with the worktop on all
sides. This is important to ensure an
effective seal all round.
Do not use sealant (e.g. silicone).
If the corners of the frame are not
flush with the worktop surface, the
corner radius (ß R4) can be carefully
scribed to fit.
^ Connect the hob to the mains.
^ Check that the hob works.
The hob can now only be removed
with a special tool.
