Before using the cooktop
Cleaning the cooktop
Before using for the first time clean the
appliance as follows:
^ Wash the gas burner assembly with a
mild solution of warm water and
liquid dish soap.
^ Wipe dry and reassemble the parts in
the proper order (see “Cleaning and
care”).
^ Wipe the cooktop with a damp cloth
and dry thoroughly.
10
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight odor
the first time your new appliance is
heated.
The harmless odor will dissipate after a
short time and does not indicate a
faulty connection or appliance defect.
Using the cooktop
Fast-Ignition-System
Auxiliary / Normal / Fast burner
The gas cooktops are equipped with a
Fast-Ignition-System which
incorporates the following features:
– The control knob can be released
once it is turned to the largest flame
symbol.
– If the flame goes out during use,
e.g. from a draft, the burner will automatically reignite.
If reignition is unsuccessful, the gas
supply will automatically be cut (see
"Safety feature").
As a result of the
Fast-Ignition-System, the ignition
stays activated for a few seconds,
even when the flame is already lit.
ß Cooktop is turned off
& Highest flame
/ Lowest flame
Wok burner
– To prevent a gas leak, the
Fast-Ignition-System will click until
the safety thermostat is activated.
Turning on and off / Regulating
The control knob is used to light the
burner and to regulate the strength of
the flame.
ß Cooktop is turned off
* Highest flame:
inner and outer burner
are both at their highest setting.
& High flame:
outer burner is at the lowest setting,
inner burner is at the highest setting.
+ Low flame:
outer burner is turned off,
inner burner is at the highest setting.
/ Lowest flame:
outer burner is turned off,

11
Using the cooktop
Turning on
Turning off
^ To light a burner press down and turn
the corresponding control knob
counterclockwise to the largest flame
symbol and release the knob. The
ignitor will click and ignite the gas.
^ Turn the control knob clockwise to
"ß".
The ignition process lasts approx.
8 - 10 seconds. The flame should light
within 4 seconds. The Fast-IgnitionSystem will click a few seconds after
the flame is lit to ensure the safety
system is activated.
If the burner does not light, repeat the
process.
If the burner does not light at the
second attempt, turn the control knob
to "ß" and see "Frequently asked
questions".
^ Now you can adjust the knob to the
desired setting.
12
This stops the flow of gas and turns off
the cooktop.
The knob must only be turned left to
turn the appliance on and right to
turn it off.
If the knob is turned:
- on without pressing it down first,
- clockwise past the 12 o’clock
position, or
- counterclockwise past the smallest
flame symbol,
parts of the cooktop may be
damaged. The manufacturer cannot
be held responsible for these
damages.
Using the cooktop
Regulating the wok burner
The inner and outer burners 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
low setting, turn the control knob
counterclockwise until you feel
resistance. Press the knob down to
pass the stop, then release the
pressure and set the cooktop to the
desired setting.
^ To increase the flames from a low to
high setting, turn the control knob
clockwise until you reach the stop.
Press the knob down to pass the
stop, then release the pressure and
set the cooktop to the desired
setting.
Since the outer portion of the flame is
much hotter than the center, the flame
should be set so that it does not spread
beyond the sides of the pan. Flame tips
which extend beyond the sides of the
pan are hazardous.
13
Using the cooktop
Pan size
Suitable pans
– Set the cooktop to a high flame when
using a large diameter pan and low
flame when using small diameter
pans.
Unlike pans used on an electric
cooktop, the bases do not need to be
even for good results.
– Generally, wide / shallow pans will
heat quicker and cook more evenly
than narrow / tall ones.
– 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.
– Do not use small pans with high
flame settings, the flames may climb
the sides of the pan.
– Pots with a smaller diameter than the
pan support and pots that do not sit
securely (without wobbling) are
hazardous and should not be used.
14
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.
Wok burners
You can use a wok on these burners
without any additional rings, trivets, etc.
If you wish to use the wok ring, for extra
stability, attach it as shown (depending
on your grates).
Using the cooktop
Safety feature
This appliance is equipped with an
Ignition Safety Control. This control cuts
the gas supply if the flame goes out
and reignition is unsuccessful.
^ To reignite the burner, turn the control
knob to “ß”, then follow the
procedure outlined in “Turning on
and off / Regulating”.
This safety feature is not operated by
electricity, it will be active even if the
appliance is in use during a power
failure.
Using the cooktop during a
power failure
If there is an interruption to the
electrical supply the gas can be ignited
using a match.
^ Press down and turn the desired
control knob counterclockwise to the
largest flame symbol.
^ While holding down the knob, light
the gas at the burner with a match.
^ When the flame appears, keep the
control knob pressed in for 8 - 10
seconds to allow for the Ignition
Safety Control to reach operating
temperature.
15
