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.
6
Keep all pans out of reach of
children. Turn pan handles inwards
away from the edge of the hob. Danger
of burning or scalding.
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.
Please note that hard objects may
scratch the ceramic surface. To
turn or stir food use a slice with a
heat-resistant coating, (avoid
scratching the surface). 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.
Do not use any pots or pans on the
grill as these can cause the
appliance to overheat and damage the
ceramic surface.
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.

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 indicator goes 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 appliance as pressure
will build up in the tin and it can
explode. This could result in injury or
damage.
Do not use the appliance 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.
8
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.
Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil
or fats 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, 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
Further safety notes
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 packing the
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.

Tips on grilling
Do not use any pots or pans on the
grill as these can cause the
appliance to overheat and damage
the ceramic surface.
Before each use, wipe any dust or
other residues from the hob with a
clean damp cloth.
– Select the appropriate setting and
pre-heat the grill for 4 - 6 minutes.
– For meat the grill should be hot
enough to seal the pores in order to
retain the juices. If the temperature is
too low the juices run out.
– Only use fats and oils which can
tolerate high temperatures.
– Food which has been prepared in a
marinade containing oil can be
placed directly on the cooking
surface. Otherwise lightly oil or
grease the cooking zone.
– Marinating brings out the taste and
aroma.
– Dab wet food with kitchen paper to
absorb surplus moisture and avoid
spitting.
– Salt meat after grilling so that it does
not become too dry.
14
– With meat dishes, e.g. beef, pork,
veal, lamb, game or poultry select
cuts which can be quickly fried, e.g.
steaks, schnitzel, and medaillions.
Thin cuts are preferable. Thicker cuts
should be cooked first on a high heat
and then finished on a lower setting.
– Clean fish, remove bones as
required, cut into bite-size pieces,
thin fillets or steaks, and brush with
lemon juice.
– Wash fruit and cut into small pieces
as required. Sprinkling with lemon
juice will help prevent apples, pears
and bananas from going brown.
– Vegetables should be washed,
cleaned and cut in slices, rings,
cubes or sticks. The smaller the
pieces, the quicker the cooking time.
Potatoes should be parboiled to
avoid starch deposits on the grill
surface.
– To turn or stir the food use a heat
resistant spatula.
– Loosen any small pieces of food
which have stuck to the grill with a
spatula. These can then be
combined with stock, wine etc. to
make a sauce.
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.
Clean the appliance regularly,
preferably after each use. Allow the grill
to cool down before cleaning.
Most soiling can be wiped off using a
damp cloth. Stubborn soiling may need
to be removed with a shielded scraper
blade.
Then apply 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 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 grill when it is
next heated up.
Should any sugar, plastic or
aluminium foil spill or fall on to the hot
grill while it is in use, first switch off the
appliance. Then, immediately, while
they are still hot, scrape off all remains
of these materials using a shielded
scraper blade. Take care not to burn
yourself.
Allow the grill to cool down and then
clean with a suitable proprietary
ceramic cleaner.
