Causes of damage
■
■
Never place combustible items on the hob.
Do not keep combustible objects or aerosol cans in drawers
directly underneath the hob.
Wet saucepan bases and hotplates
Incorrect repairs
Caution!
■
Rough pot and pan bases scratch the ceramic.
■
Avoid boiling pots dry. This may cause damage.
■
Risk of injury!
Steam pressure may build up if there is liquid between the
saucepan base and the hotplate. This may cause the pan to
jump suddenly. Always keep the hotplate and saucepan bases
dry.
■
■
Never place hot pots or pans on the control panel, the
display area or the surround. This may cause damage.
Damage can occur if hard or pointed objects fall on the hob.

Tips for saving energy
■
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.
■
■
■
■
■
■
Always use the right lid for the pan in question. Cooking
without the lid requires four times as much energy.
Use pots and pans with even bases. Using cookware with
uneven 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 the 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 larger, less full
saucepan requires more energy.
Use only a little water when cooking. This saves 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 5 - 10 minutes before the end
of the cooking time.
