environmentally-responsible manner.

■
Environmental protection
This appliance is labelled in accordance with the
European Directive 2002/96/EU concerning used
electrical and electronic appliances (WEEE –
waste electrical and electronic equipment). The
guideline determines the framework for the return
and recycling of used appliances as applicable.

Tips for saving energy
■
■
Always use a correctly fitting lid for the pan.Cooking without
the lid requires four times as much energy. A glass lid allows
you to observe the cooking without having to lift the lid off.
■
Use pots and pans with level bases. Using cookware with
unlevel bases increases energy consumption.
The diameter of the base of your pot or pan should match the
size of the hotplate. In particular, if pots that are too small are
placed on a hotplate, energy is wasted. Please note:
Cookware manufacturers often specify the diameter of the
top of the pan. This is usually bigger than the diameter of the
base of the pan.
Use a small pan for small quantities of food. A large
saucepan containing little food requires more energy.
Use only a little water when cooking. This will save energy. It
also preserves vitamins and minerals in vegetables.
Switch to a lower heat setting as soon as possible.
Use the residual heat of the hob. For longer cooking times,
you can switch the hotplate off as early as 5 - 10 minutes
before the end of the cooking time.
Getting to know your appliance

Setting the hob
This section informs you how to set the hotplates. The table
shows heat settings and cooking times for various meals.
Setting a hotplate
Switching the hob on and off
Heat setting 1 = lowest setting
You can switch the hob on and off with the hotplate controls.
Adjust the heat setting of the hotplates using the hotplate
controls.
Heat setting 9 = highest setting
The symbol in the display panel indicates the hotplate to which
the display relates, e.g. Š for the right rear hotplate.
Note: Hotplate temperature is regulated by the heat switching
on and off. The heat may also switch on and off at the highest
setting.
Table of cooking times
The following table provides some examples.
When heating thick liquids, stir regularly.
Cooking times and heat settings may vary depending on the
type of food, its weight and quality. Deviations are therefore
possible.
