Warning and Safety instructions
Installation and connection
The appliance must be installed
and connected by a suitably
qualified and competent person in strict
accordance with local and national
safety regulations. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for damage
caused by incorrect installation or
connection.
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective earthing
system, which complies with local and
national safety regulations. It is most
important that this basic safety
requirement is regularly tested, and if
there is any doubt, the electrical wiring
in the home should be inspected by a
qualified electrician. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for the
consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
8
This appliance must not be
installed over a dishwasher,
washing machine, tumble dryer,
refrigerator, freezer or fridge-freezer.
The high temperatures radiated by it
could damage the appliance below.
This could also impair the hob's
ventilation system.
This equipment may only be used
in mobile installations such as
ships, caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
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.
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct usage
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the appliance, you
should read these operating
instructions carefully before using it for
the first time. They contain important
notes on the installation, safety,
operation and care of the appliance.

food in the home. Any other usage
is at the owner's risk and could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for damage caused by
incorrect or improper use of the
appliance.
For safety reasons this appliance
must only be operated after it has
been built in. This is necessary to
ensure that all electrical components
are shielded.
This appliance is intended for
domestic use only and is not to be
used for commercial purposes.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
The appliance is only intended for
use by adults who have read these
operating instructions.
This appliance is not a toy! To
avoid the risk of injury keep
children well away and do not let them
play with it or use the controls. They will
not understand the potential dangers
posed by it. They should be supervised
whenever you are working in the
kitchen.
Older children may use the
appliance only when its operation
has been clearly explained to them,
and they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
Supervise its use by the elderly or
infirm.
Use the safety lock to prevent
children operating the appliance or
altering the settings.
The appliance gets hot when in
use and remains hot for quite a
while after being switched off. To
safeguard against burning, keep
children well away from the appliance
at all times.
Do not store anything which might
arouse a child's interest in storage
areas above or next to the appliance.
Otherwise they could be tempted into
climbing onto the appliance with the
risk of burning themselves.
10
Keep all pans out of reach of
children. Turn pan handles inwards
away from the edge of the hob. Danger
of burning or scalding. Special hob
guards are available from good retail
outlets.
Packaging (e.g. cling film,
polystyrene) and plastic wrappings
must be kept out of the reach of babies
and young children. Danger of
suffocation. Dispose of or recycle all
packaging safely as soon as possible.
Old appliances must be
disconnected from the power
supply, any plug rendered useless and
the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance to ensure it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal. This should be done by a
competent person.
Warning and Safety instructions
Protecting the appliance from
damage
Do not drop anything on the
ceramic surface. Even a light
object could cause damage in certain
circumstances.
Do not use pots or pans on the
ceramic hob with bases with
pronounced edges or ridges. These
could scratch or scour the hob surface
permanently. Grains of salt and sand
can also scratch.
Do not allow either solid or liquid
sugar, or pieces of plastic or
aluminium foil to get on the ceramic
surface when it is hot. If this should
occur, switch off the appliance and
carefully, while they are still hot, scrape
off all remains of these materials using
a shielded scraper blade. Take care not
to burn yourself. If residues are allowed
to cool before being removed, the
ceramic surface will be susceptible to
pitting or even cracking.
Clean the appliance once it has cooled
down.
Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean this appliance. The steam
could reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to other
components, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
Never place hot pans near the
control area. This could damage
the electronic unit underneath.
If a drawer is fitted directly
underneath the hob, 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 hob.
In countries where there are 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 which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the appliance guarantee.
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.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Protection from burning and
scalding
The surface of the appliance is 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.
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 heat up unopened tins of
food on the hob as pressure will
build up in the tin and it can explode.
This could result in injury and scalding
or damage.
Do not use the hob as a resting
place for anything else. The article
could melt or catch fire if residual heat
is still present or if the appliance is
switched on by mistake.
12
Do not cover the appliance, e.g.
with a cloth, kitchen foil, etc. There
is a danger of this burning or catching
fire if the hob is hot.
Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil
or fat as these are fire hazards if
overheated. Very hot oil can catch fire
and could even set a cooker hood
above on fire. Always heat fat slowly,
watching as it heats.
If, despite this, 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 flambé under a cooker
hood. The flames could set the
cooker hood on fire.
Warning and Safety instructions
Appliance faults
Electromagnetic fields
In the event of damage or a defect,
switch off the appliance immediately. Disconnect completely from the
electricity supply. If the appliance has
not yet been fully installed, the
electricity cable must be disconnected
from the supply point. If connected via
a plug and socket, switch off at the
socket and withdraw the plug. Contact
the Service Department.
Do not reconnect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply until after it has
been repaired.
For people fitted with a heart
pacemaker:
Please note that the area immediately
surrounding the hob is
electromagnetically charged, and that
this could affect a pacemaker.
If in any doubt consult the manufacturer
of the pacemaker or your doctor.
If there is any damage to the
ceramic surface the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains
electricity supply immediately and not
used until it has been repaired. Danger
of electric shock.
Ensure pans are placed centrally
over the cooking zone to prevent
unnecessary exposure to the
electromagnetic field.
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 hob.
Repairs must only be carried out
by a suitably qualified and
competent person. Repairs and other
work by unqualified persons could be
very dangerous and could damage the
appliance. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for unauthorised work. Never
open the housing of the appliance.
While the appliance is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician
authorised by the manufacturer.
Otherwise the guarantee is invalidated.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Further safety notes
When using an electric socket near
the appliance, care should be
taken that the cable of the electrical
appliance does not come into contact
with the hot appliance. The insulation
on the cable could become damaged,
giving rise to an electric shock hazard.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
Many factors will affect the overall
cooking time, including the size and
amount of food and its temperature.
Some foods may contain
micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by thorough cooking;
therefore when cooking or reheating
foods such as poultry, it is particularly
important that the food is completely
cooked through. If in doubt, select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
14
Do not use plastic or aluminium foil
containers. These melt at high
temperatures and could damage the
ceramic surface or catch fire.
Spray canisters, aerosols and other
inflammable substances must not
be stored in a drawer under the hob.
Cutlery inserts must be heat-resistant.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
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 can normally be recycled.
Packaging (e.g. cling film, polystyrene)
and plastic wrappings must be kept out
of the reach of babies and young
children. Danger of suffocation.
Dispose of or recycle all packaging
materials safely as soon as possible.
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 your
old appliance with your household
waste.
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. If
connected by a plug, the plug must be
rendered useless and the cable cut off
directly behind the appliance to prevent
misuse.
15
Before using for the first time
General notes
This appliance operates using the
induction principle. This means that the
cooking zones will only work if they are
covered by a pan with a magnetic base
(see "Suitable pans").
A light humming or clicking sound may
be audible when the appliance is
switched on. This is quite normal with
induction heat.
A data plate for your appliance is
supplied with this documentation. It
should be stuck into the space
provided at the end of the instruction
book.
Keep these instructions in a safe place
for reference and pass them on to any
future user.
16
Cleaning and heating up for
the first time
Before using for the first time, clean the
appliance with a damp cloth only and
then wipe dry.
Do not use washing up liquid on the
ceramic surface as it can leave a
blue sheen which may be difficult to
remove.
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight
smell when the hob is heated up for the
first time. The smell and any vapours
will dissipate after a short time and do
not indicate a faulty connection or
appliance.
Operation
The induction principle
Noises
An induction coil is located under each
cooking zone. When a zone is switched
on this coil creates a magnetic field
which creates or induces current in the
base of the pan on it (which must be
magnetic). This heats up the base of
the pan. The cooking zone itself is
heated up indirectly by the heat given
off by the pan.
When using an induction hob, the
following noises can occur in the pan,
depending on what it is made of and
how it has been constructed:
The following points should be noted
when cooking by induction:
– Pans:
An induction cooking zone will only
react to pans with a magnetic base
(see "Suitable pans"). Unsuitable
pans will not heat up.
– Pan recognition:
If an unsuitable pan is placed on the
cooking zone the induction heat will
not work.
– Pan size recognition:
Induction cooking zones adapt their
power output automatically to the
diameter of the pan base.
Detailed information on these points
can be found in the next section.
– On the higher power settings, it
might 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. in a
sandwiched base), it might emit a
cracking sound.
– Whistling might occur if linked zones
(see "Booster function") are being
used on the highest setting at the
same time, and the pans also have
bases made of layers of different
materials.
– You might hear a clicking sound from
the electronic switches, especially on
lower settings.
The appliance has a cooling fan to help
extend the life of the electronics. When
the hob 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.
17
Operation
Pans
Suitable pans
Induction cooking zones will only work
when covered by a pan with a
magnetic base.
Unless the pan manufacturer states
that you can do so, do not use pans
with very thin bases on this hob, and
never heat up empty pans as they
could get damaged. This could also
damage the appliance.
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 hob:
Pan size
The diameter of the pan base must be
at least as big as the inner marking on
the zone it is being used on. If the
diameter of the base is too small the
induction heating will not work (see
"Pan size recognition").
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.
^ Fill the pan with some water and
place it on a cooking zone.
Tips on saving energy
^ Switch the zone on and touch - or +
to set a power level.
Use a pan lid whenever possible to
minimise heat loss.
If the pan is not suitable the 0 symbol
will start flashing immediately in the
cooking zone display alternating with
the ß symbol.
Please be aware that the properties of
the pan base can affect the eveness
with which food heats up in the pan.

Operation
Sensor switches
Switching on
This hob is equipped with electronic
sensor switches which react to finger
contact.
To operate a cooking zone, touch the
relevant sensor. Each time you touch a
sensor, an audible tone sounds.
The hob must be switched on before
any of the zones can be used.
Make sure that you only touch the
sensor you require, and that you
touch the centre of the sensor.
Take care to keep the control area
clean. Do not place anything on the
control area. 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").
To switch the hob on:
^ Touch the ON/OFF sensor s.
A 0 appears in the display for each of
the zones. If no further entry is made,
the hob will switch itself off after a few
seconds for safety reasons.
To switch a cooking zone on:
^ Select a power setting between 1 and
9 by touching the - or + sensor.
To select cooking with Auto heat-up,
touch the - sensor first (see "Auto
heat-up"). To select cooking without
Auto heat-up touch the + sensor first.
Never place hot pans on the
sensors. The electronic unit
underneath could get damaged.

Operation
Pan recognition
Pan recognition is an additional safety
feature. Induction heating does not
work, ...
... if a cooking zone is switched on
without a pan in place or if the pan is
unsuitable:
If this is the case a power setting
cannot be set. As soon as the - or +
sensor is touched, a 0 will start flashing
in the cooking zone display, alternating
with the ß symbol for approx. 3
minutes.
It will stop flashing when this time has
elapsed or when a suitable pan is
placed on the zone. The 0 will then light
up constantly.
... if the pan is taken off the cooking
zone:
Operation is interrupted in this instance.
The last power setting selected will start
flashing in the cooking zone display,
alternating with the ß symbol for
approx. 3 minutes.
It will stop flashing if a suitable pan is
placed on the zone during this period.
The power setting will then light up
constantly and operation will
recommence.
If, during these 3 minutes, a pan is not
placed on the zone or if an unsuitable
pan is placed on it, the flashing will
stop after the 3 minutes have elapsed
and 0 will light up constantly.
Pan recognition protects against:
– unintentional switching on of a
cooking zone, e.g. by children;
– the risk of burning caused by
forgetting to switch off a zone after
removing a pan.
With pan recognition, induction
reacts to metallic items which are
magnetic. Do not use the hob as a
resting place for anything else.
21
Operation
Pan size recognition
With induction heating, heat is only
produced on the surface which is
covered by a pan. The smaller the pan,
the smaller the diameter which is
heated
To make optimum use of the cooking
zones, choose pans with diameters
larger than the inner markings but
smaller than the outer markings. If the
diameter of the pan is smaller than the
inner marking, the induction heating will
not work. The cooking zone will react as
if there is no pan on it (see "Pan
recognition").
This safety feature prevents small
metallic objects (e.g. a teaspoon) being
heated up if they are laid down on a
cooking zone which is switched on.

Operation
Auto heat-up
How to activate Auto heat-up
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).
^ Touch the - sensor until the required
continued cooking setting appears,
e.g. 6.
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.

During the heat-up time a dot will light
up to the right of the continued cooking
setting, and go out at the end of it.
During the heat-up time the continued
cooking setting can be increased using
the + sensor. The heat-up time will
increase accordingly.
The continued cooking setting can,
however, only be reduced using the sensor during the first few seconds
after activating the Auto heat-up
function. At the end of this time,
reducing the continued cooking time
will switch the Auto heat-up function off.
Taking a pan off the zone whilst Auto
heat-up is in operation interrupts the
Auto heat-up. It will resume if a pan is
placed back on the zone within 3
minutes.
23
Operation
Booster
The rear right and front left cooking
zones are equipped with a booster, i. e.
an increase in the power level.
If activated, the cooking zone will
operate on power setting 9 with an
extra boost of power for a period of
10 minutes. This boost is intended for
quickly bringing large quantities of
water to the boil, e.g. when cooking
pasta.
If wished, both boosters can be used at
the same time.
Proceed as follows:
^ Touch the booster sensor B for the
relevant cooking zone.
Power setting 9 will show in the
cooking zone display, and the indicator
lamp for the booster will also light up.
After a period of 10 minutes the zone
will automatically revert to the normal
power setting 9, and the indicator lamp
will go out.
The booster can be cancelled early by
– touching the B sensor again,
– touching the - sensor on the relevant
cooking zone.
24
The extra boost of energy is only
available by taking a proportion of
energy away from the front right or rear
left cooking zone.
Whilst the booster is engaged the
– front right cooking zone will operate
at a maximum setting of 7,
– rear left cooking zone will operate at
a maximum setting of 8,
even if a higher power setting, e.g. 9, is
selected. To indicate that this is
happening, e.g. with the front right
cooking zone, the 9 will flash alternately
with the 7 until the booster switches off
again.
Engaging the booster also
automatically overrides any Auto
heat-up function set for both left or right
hand cooking zones.
Taking a pan off the zone whilst the
booster is in operation interrupts the
booster. It will resume if a pan is placed
back on the zone within 3 minutes.
Operation
Switching off and residual heat
indicators
To switch off a cooking zone:
^ Touch the - and + sensors for the
zone you want to switch off at the
same time.
A 0 will light up in the display for that

zone is still hot, residual heat will then
be indicated in the display.
The residual heat indicator will not go
out until 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.
To switch off the hob:
^ Touch the ON/OFF sensor s.

Safety features
Overheating protection
If the cooling elements overheat:
The induction coil on a cooking zone
can overheat if:
The cooking zone cooling elements can
overheat if the appliance does not have
sufficient ventilation.
– the pan is not conducting heat
properly
– fats or oils are heated up on the
highest power setting.
The overheating protection works on
the affected cooking zone in one of the
following ways:
– If a cooking zone with the Booster
function is affected and the Booster
is switched on, then the Booster will
be switched off.
– If power setting 9 has been set, the 9
will flash, alternating with the 8, i. e.
the cooking zone power level has
been reduced to 8.
– The affected cooking zone switches
itself off automatically. The display
first shows a 0 and then the residual
heat indicator.
The cooking zone can be used again
as soon as it has cooled down to a safe
level.
To prevent the overheating protection
from cutting in again:
– use pots and pans which conduct
heat properly.
– heat fats or oils up on a medium
power setting only.
28
The overheating protection affects the
whole hob in one of the following ways:
– If the Booster is operating it will be
switched off.
– If power setting 9 has been set, the 9
will flash, alternating with the 8, i. e.
the cooking zone power level has
been reduced to 8.
– All cooking zones switch themselves
off automatically and the displays all
show a flashing 0.
As soon as the cooling elements have
cooled down sufficiently, the cooking
zones will automatically continue to
operate at the power setting previously
selected.
Note:
If a drawer is fitted directly underneath
the hob, ensure that there is sufficient
space between the drawer and its
contents and underside of the
appliance in order to ensure sufficient
ventilation for the hob.
If the overheating protection is
activated again contact the Service
Department.

Cleaning and care
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. The steam could
reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to
components, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
Do not use any sharp objects which
could damage the seal between the
ceramic surface and the
surrounding frame and between the
frame and the worktop.
Never use cleaners containing sand,
soda, alkalis, acids or chlorides,
oven sprays, dishwasher
detergents, nor steel wool, abrasive
cleaning agents, hard brushes,
scouring pads and cloths. You
should also avoid using sponges
etc. which have previously been
used with abrasive cleaning agents,
as this will damage the surface.
Do not use washing up liquid to
clean the ceramic surface as it can
leave a blue sheen which may be
difficult to remove.
E-Cloth
A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available from
the Miele UK Spare Parts Department
which is suitable for cleaning surfaces
such as stainless steel, glass, plastic
and chrome without the use of
chemicals.
Clean the appliance regularly,
preferably after each use. Allow the hob
to cool down before cleaning.
To prevent the risk of spillages burning
on, remove any soiling as soon as
possible, and ensure that pan bases
are clean, dry and free of grease.
Most soiling can be wiped off using a
damp cloth. Stubborn soiling may need
to be removed with a shielded scraper
blade.
After cleaning, dry thoroughly with a
soft cloth to prevent a build-up of
limescale deposits
To remove any limescale deposits,
caused for example by water boiling
oven as well as metallic marks e.g. from
saucepan bases, the ceramic surface
can be cleaned using a proprietary
cleaning agent for ceramic surfaces.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions
on the packaging and apply using a
soft cloth or kitchen paper towel.
Finally, wipe the hob surface with a
damp cloth and then dry it with a clean
soft cloth. Ensure that every trace of
cleaner has been removed from the
surface. Any remaining trace could
have a corrosive effect on the hob
when it is next heated up.
Note that some cleaning agents contain
a protective additive designed to
prevent water marks and smears
adhering to the surface.
31
Cleaning and care
Should any sugar, plastic or
aluminium foil spill or fall on to a hot
cooking zone while it is in use, first
switch off the cooking zone. Then, immediately, while it is still hot, scrape off
all remains of these materials using a
shielded scraper blade. Take care not
to burn yourself.
Allow the cooking zone to cool down
and then clean with a suitable
proprietary ceramic cleaner.
