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.
Incorrect repairs are dangerous. Switch off the circuit breaker in
the fuse box, if the appliance is faulty. Call the after-sales
service. Repairs may only be carried out by one of our qualified
after-sales engineers.

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.

Residual heat indicator
The hob has a two-stage residual heat indicator for each
hotplate.
If • appears in the display the hob is still hot. It may be used,
for example, to keep a small meal warm or to melt cooking
chocolate. As the hotplate cools down further, the display
changes to œ. The display remains lit until the hotplate has
cooled sufficiently.
Power cut
If there has been a power cut, the residual heat indicator
switches back on automatically. The indicator flashes for
approximately 30 minutes. The flashing stops if you briefly
switch the hotplate on again.
Setting the hob
This section informs you how to set the hotplates. The table
shows heat settings and cooking times for various meals.
Switching the hob on and off
You can switch the hob on and off with the hotplate controls.
When the hob is switched on, the heat setting display lights up.

Adjust the heat setting of the hotplates using the hotplate
controls.
There is an intermediate setting between each heat setting. This
is identified by a dot.
0 = hotplate off
Note: Hotplate temperature is regulated by the heat switching
on and off. The heat may also switch on and off at the highest
setting.
Heat setting 1 = lowest 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.
For bringing liquids to the boil, use heat setting 9.

Electronic boil start control
The electronic boil start control heats the hotplate using the
highest heat setting and then switches down to the simmer
setting you have selected.
The time taken for the hotplate to heat up depends on the
simmer setting selected.
Setting the electronic boil start control
1. Set the desired simmer setting with the hotplate control.
2. Press the hotplate control.
The electronic boil start control is activated. ‘ and the ongoing
cooking setting flash alternately.
After the food has been brought to the boil, only the simmer
setting remains lit in the display.
The electronic boil start control can only be activated in the first
10 seconds after you have switched on the hotplate:

Tips for the electronic boil start control
■
Electronic boil start control is designed to conserve food's
nutritional value while using little water for cooking.
■
■
Add only approximately 3 cups of water to the food for large
hotplates and approximately 2 cups of water for small
hotplates.
Place a lid on the saucepan.
Electronic boil start control is not suitable for food that is
cooked in a large volume of water (e.g. pasta).
Childproof lock and pause function
■
■
You can use the childproof lock to prevent children from
switching on the hotplates.
The pause function allows you to interrupt the heating
process.
Caution!
Water used for cleaning, spilt food and objects placed on the
@ symbol can cause the childproof lock/pause function to be
unintentionally activated or deactivated.
Childproof lock
Locking the hob
All hotplates must be switched off. Touch the @ symbol until
the indicator lamp above the symbol lights up. This takes about
4 seconds. The indicator lamp goes out after about
10 seconds.
Releasing the lock
Touch the @ symbol until the indicator lamp goes out. This
takes about 4 seconds. The hob is unlocked.
Locked hob
If you set a hotplate on a locked hob, the following occurs:
■
■
‹ flashes in the hotplate indicator, or the residual heat
indicator alternates with ‹.
The indicator lamp above the @ symbol lights up.
Switch the hotplate off. Release the lock.
Note: The residual heat is displayed, even when the hob is
locked.
Shortening the switch-on time
You can shorten the switch-on time of the childproof lock from
4 seconds to 1 second:
The hotplates must be switched off.
1. Set all 4 hotplates to heat setting 2.
2. Switch off the hotplates one after the other from right to left.
3. Select a heat setting for any hotplate and press the hotplate
control.
4. Switch off the hotplate control.
All displays light up briefly. The switch-on time is shortened.
You can also increase the switch-on time to 4 seconds again.
Proceed in exactly the same way as for shortening it.

Pause function
Continuing cooking
Activating the pause function
Tap the @ symbol again within 3 minutes. The hotplates
continue to heat.
Tap the @ symbol. The selected heat setting flashes on the
hotplate indicator. Heating is interrupted.
Pause time exceeded
After 3 minutes, a ‹ flashes in the display. Switch the hotplate
off and make your settings again.
Automatic time limit
If a hotplate is in use for a long time without the setting being
changed, the automatic time limit is activated.
When the time limit is activated depends on the heat setting
selected (1 to 10 hours).
The hotplate stops heating. ‹ flashes in the hotplate indicator.
Note: You can switch the hotplate back on again at any time.
Switch the hotplate off.
