never use water to put it out. Extinguish the flames with a lid or
a plate. Switch off the hotplate.
Ø = cm
Cooking food using the bain-marie method
Fan care
The bain-marie method allows you to cook food in a saucepan
submerged in a larger pan containing water. The water cooks
the food with a gentle and constant heat, rather than directly
from the heat of the hotplate. When cooking food in bain-marie,
you must prevent tins, glass containers or other material from
resting directly on the base of the pan containing the water, to
prevent the glass on the hob and the pan from breaking due to
hotplate reheating.
Malfunction risk!
The bottom of the hob is equipped with a fan. If there is a
drawer under the hob it should not be used to store small
objects or paper, since they could damage the fan or interfere
with the cooling if they are sucked into it.
Caution!
Hot hob
There should be a minimum distance of 2 cm between the
drawer and the fan entrance.
Risk of burns!!

the replacement of faulty connection cables may only be
performed by qualified personnel from the Technical
Assistance Service.
Wet hotplates and pan bases
Caution!
Risk of injury!!
This appliance complies with safety and electromagnetic
compatibility standards. However, people with pacemakers
must refrain from approaching the appliance when in use. It is
impossible to ensure that all of these devices available on the
market comply with current electromagnetic compatibility
standards, and that interference which may prevent the device
from working correctly will not occur. It is also possible that
people with other types of devices, such as a hearing aids,
could experience some discomfort.
Liquid between the bottom of the pan and the hob can produce
steam pressure. Which may cause the pan to jump. Always
ensure that the hotplate and the base of the pan are kept dry.
Cracks in the hob
Risk of electric shock!!
Disconnect the appliance from the mains if the hob is broken or
cracked.
Contact the Technical Assistance Service.
The hotplate heats up, but the display does not work
Risk of burns!!
Switching off the hob
After each use, always turn off the hob at the main switch. Do
not wait until the hob turns off automatically after the pan is
removed.
Turn off the hotplate if the indicator does not work. Contact the
Technical Assistance Service.

Protecting the environment
Unpack the appliance and dispose of its packaging in such a
way that no damage is caused to the environment.
■
■
Environmentally-friendly disposal of waste
products
This appliance conforms to the Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment Directive WEEE 2002/96/EC.
This directive defines the framework for recycling used
appliances within European territory
■
Energy-saving advice
■
Always place the correct lid on the pan. Cooking with an
uncovered pan will result in a four-fold increase in energy
use.
■
■
Use pans equipped with a solid, flat bottom. Curved pan
bases increase energy consumption.
The diameter of the pan base must coincide with the
diameter of the hotplate. This generally means the pan base
diameter is greater than that of the hotplate. If the diameter of
the pan is not the same as the diameter of the hotplate, it is
preferable to use a pan with a bottom that is larger in
diameter than the hotplate, otherwise half the energy will be
wasted. Please note: Whether the cookware manufacturer
has indicated the diameter of the top of the pan.
Choose pans of a size suited to the amount of food you are
going to cook. A large pan that is only half full will use a great
amount of energy.
Use a small amount of water when cooking. This saves
energy, and vegetables retain their vitamins and minerals.
Select a lower power level.
Induction cooking
Advantages of induction cooking
Characteristics of the pan base
Induction cooking represents a radical change from the
traditional method of heating; the heat is generated directly in
the pan. It therefore offers a number of advantages:
The characteristics of the pan base may affect the uniformity of
the cooking results. Pans made from materials which help
diffuse heat, such as stainless steel sandwich pans, distribute
heat uniformly, saving time and energy.
■
■
■
■
Time savings for cooking and frying; since the pan is heated
directly.
Energy is saved.
Care and cleaning are simpler. Foods that have spilt do not
burn as quickly.
Heat and safety control; the hob supplies or cuts off power
immediately when the control knob is turned on. The
induction hotplate stops supplying heat if the pan is removed
without having previously switched it off.
Suitable pans
Ferromagnetic pans
Only ferromagnetic pans are suitable for induction cooking,
these may be made from:
Absence of pan or unsuitable size
If no pan is placed on the selected hotplate, or if it is made of
unsuitable material or is not the correct size, the power level
displayed on the hotplate indicator will flash. Place a suitable
pan on the hotplate to stop the flashing. If this takes more than
90 seconds, the hotplate will switch off automatically.
Empty pans or those with a thin base
Do not heat empty pans, nor use pans with a thin base. The
hob is equipped with an internal safety system. However, an
empty pan may heat up so quickly that the "automatic switch
off" function may not have time to react and the pan may reach
very high temperatures. The base of the pan could melt and
damage the glass on the hob. In this case, do not touch the
pan and switch the hotplate off. If it fails to work after it has
cooled down, please contact the Technical Assistance Service.
■
enamelled steel
■
cast iron
Pan detection
■
special cutlery for stainless steel induction pan
To determine whether a pan is suitable, check to see if a
magnet will stick to it.
Each hotplate has a minimum limit for detecting pans, which
varies depending on the material of the pan being used. You
should therefore use the hotplate that is most suitable for the
diameter of your pan.
Special induction pans
Double or triple hotplate
There is another type of pan specially made for induction, the
base of which is not entirely ferromagnetic. Check the diameter,
since this could affect detection of the pan, as well as the
cooking results.
These hotplates can detect pans of different sizes. Depending
on the material and properties of the pan, the hotplate will
adapt automatically, switching on part or all of the hotplate and
supplying sufficient power to obtain good cooking results.
Unsuitable pans
Never use pans made from:
■
common thin steel
■
glass
■
earthenware
■
copper
■
aluminium
