Using the cooktop
Turning on
,Do not leave the appliance
unattended whilst it is being used.
^ To light the burner, press the
corresponding burner control knob
and turn it to the left to the largest
flame symbol.
Pressing a burner control knob
automatically generates a spark at all
burners on the cooktop. This is
normal and does not indicate a faulty
appliance.
Turning on in the event of a power
failure
If there is a power loss, you can ignite
the flame manually, e.g. with a match.
^ Press the burner control knob and
turn it to the left to the largest flame
symbol.
^ Keep the knob pressed and ignite
the escaping gas-air mixture with a
match.
^ Keep the knob pressed for a further
approx. 8 - 10 seconds and then
release it.
^ When a flame is visible, keep the
burner control knob pressed for 8 10 seconds, then release it.
^ If the flame goes out prematurely,
turn the burner control knob to "ß".
Wait at least 1 minute before
attempting to reignite. You may have
to keep the burner control knob
pressed a little longer.
^ If the burner does not ignite even at
the second attempt, turn the burner
control knob to "ß" and read the
chapter on "Frequently asked
questions".
13
Using the cooktop
Regulating
The inner and outer burners of the
double-insert super burner are both
controlled by one control knob. There is
a stop at the 6 o’clock position that
requires you to press the knob down
while turning it in order to get from the
high flame to the low flame zone.
^ To reduce the flames from a high to a
low setting, turn the burner control
knob counterclockwise until
resistance is felt. Press the knob
down until you pass the stop, and
release the pressure and set the
cooktop the desired setting.
^ To increase the flames from a low to
a high setting, turn the burner control
knob clockwise until resistance is felt.
Press the knob down until you pass
the stop, and release the pressure
and set the cooktop the desired
setting.
The flame should be regulated so that it
never protrudes beyond the pot. Since
the outer part of the gas flame is much
hotter than the center of the flame, the
flame tips should remain under the
base of the pot. Protruding flame tips
give off unnecessary heat into the air
and can damage pot handles and
increase the risk of burning.
The burner can be continuously
regulated between the highest and
lowest flame. Exception: double-insert
super burner.
Turning off
^ Turn the burner control knob
clockwise to "ß".
The gas supply is stopped and the
flame goes out.
Do not turn the burner control knob
clockwise beyond "ß".

Cookware
Pan size
Pan placement
– Select the cookware to match the
burner:
large diameter = large burner
small diameter = small burner.
– Always place the cookware on the
grate. The cookware must not be
placed directly on the burner.
– Using oversized pans may cause the
flames to spread out and damage
the surrounding countertop or other
countertop appliances. The proper
pan size will also improve efficiency.
– Position the cookware on the grate
so that it cannot tip over. A minimum
amount of wobbling can never be
completely ruled out.
Wok ring
– Pots with a smaller diameter than the
grate(s) and pots that do not sit
securely (without wobbling) are
hazardous and should not be used.
Suitable pans
– Unlike pans used on an electric
cooktop, the bases do not need to
be even for good results.
For added stability, especially for wok
pans with round bases, use the wok
ring (supplied).
– When buying pots and pans, keep in
mind that it is generally not the base
diameter but the upper diameter
which is specified.
Make sure the wok ring is properly in
place, so that it won't move around.
(See illustration.)
– Only use heat-resistant cookware.
Trivet
– Thick pan bases will give more even
results, as hot spots are reduced due
to better heat distribution.
Thin pan bases will conduct the heat
faster but not as evenly as thick pan
bases. Stir the food frequently to
prevent burning.
The trivet must be used on the
double-insert super burner, if using
– very small cookware. Prevents it from
tipping over.
– very large cookware. Using the insert
will prevent the flames from
spreading, causing the cooktop to
discolor and the surrounding
countertop to be damaged.
– Do not use pots or pans with
edge-supported bases. between the
burner and the base of the wok pan
above it.
15
Energy saving tips
– If possible, cook in covered pots or
pans. This prevents unnecessary
heat loss.
– Cook with less water.
– The cooking time can be significantly
reduced by using a pressure cooker.
– After cooking or frying, promptly set
to a lower flame.
– Generally, wide / shallow pans will
heat quicker and cook more evenly
than narrow / tall ones.
16
Safety feature
Ignition safety control
The appliance is equipped with an
Ignition safety control. This control cuts
the gas supply if the flame goes out,
e.g. from a boilover or a draft. Any
further escape of gas is prevented.
^ To reignite the burner knob clockwise
to "ß" and then turn it on as usual.
The Ignition safety control works
independently of the power supply. It is
active if the appliance is in use during a
power failure.
17
Cleaning and care

IMPORTANT INSTALLATION SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation
The minimum distances given in
these Installation instructions are to
combustible surfaces, and must be
observed to ensure safe operation.
Failure to do so increases the risk of
fire.
The cabinetry and venting hood
should be installed first to prevent
damage to the cooktop.
~ Gas appliances should only be
installed in a well ventilated area.
~ The countertop must be bonded
with heat resistant (212°F/100°C)
adhesive to prevent distortion or
dissolving.
Any wall coverings must be heat
resistant as well.
~ This appliance must not be used in
a non-stationary location (e.g. on a
ship).
~ Deep fat fryers must not be installed
directly next to gas cooktops. Gas
flames can ignite splattering oil. A
distance of at least 11 3/4" (300 mm)
should be maintained between these
two appliances.
~ The power cord and a flexible gas
connection line must be attached in
such a way that they are not in contact
with moving parts of kitchen elements
(e.g. a drawer) and are not subject to
mechanical stress.
~ The safety distances listed on the
following pages must be carefully
maintained.
~ Never use a sealant unless
