Environmental protection
Environmentally-friendly disposal
■
Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-friendly manner.
This appliance is labelled in accordance with
European Directive 2012/19/EU concerning used
electrical and electronic appliances (waste electrical
and electronic equipment - WEEE). The guideline
determines the framework for the return and recycling
of used appliances as applicable throughout the EU.
Energy-saving tips
■
■
Always place suitable lids on saucepans. When cooking
without a lid, considerably more energy is required. A glass
lid means that you can see inside without having to lift the lid.
Use pots and pans with even bases. Uneven bases increase
energy consumption.
■
■
■
■
■
■
The diameter of pot and pan bases should be the same size
as the hotplate. In particular, small saucepans on the hotplate
cause energy losses. Please note: cookware manufacturers
often indicate the upper diameter of the saucepan. This is
usually bigger than the diameter of the base of the pan.
Use a small saucepan for small quantities. A larger, less full
saucepan requires a lot of energy.
Cook with only a little water. This will save energy. Vitamins
and minerals in vegetables are preserved.
Always cover as large an area of the hotplate as possible
with your saucepan.
Switch to a lower heat setting in good time.
Select a suitable ongoing cooking setting. You will waste
energy by using an ongoing cooking setting which is too
high.
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.
Getting to know your appliance

Always keep the controls dry. Moisture reduces their
effectiveness.
Do not pull pans close to the displays and sensors. The
electronics could overheat.
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.
Setting the hob
This section informs you how to set the hotplates. The table
shows heat settings and cooking times for various meals.
1. Touch the μ symbol to select the hotplate.
2. Touch the + or - symbol within the next 10 seconds. The
basic setting appears.
+ symbol: heat setting 9
- symbol: heat setting 4
Switching the hob on and off
The main switch is used to switch the hob on and off.
To switch on: Touch the # symbol. An audible signal sounds.
The indicator light above the main switch and the ‹ displays
light up. The hob is ready for use.
To switch off: Touch the # symbol until the display light above
the main switch and the displays go out. All hotplates are
switched off. The residual heat indicator remains on until the
hotplates have cooled down sufficiently.
Notes
■ The hob switches off automatically if all hotplates have been
switched off for more than 20 seconds.
■
The settings remain stored for 4 seconds after the hob has
been switched off. If you switch it on again during this time,
the hob will operate using the previously stored settings.
Setting a hotplate
Use the + and - symbols to set the desired heat setting.
Heat setting 1 = lowest setting
Heat setting 9 = highest setting
There is an intermediate setting between each heat setting. This
is identified by a dot.
Set the heat setting
The hob must be switched on.
3. To change the heat setting: touch the + or - symbol until the
desired heat setting appears.
Switching off the hotplate
Use the μ symbol to select the hotplate. Touch the + or symbol until ‹ appears. After about 10 seconds, the residual
heat indicator appears.
Notes
The last selected hotplate remains activated. You can set the
hotplate without selecting it again.
■
■
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.
For bringing liquids to the boil, use heat setting 9.
Cooking times and heat settings may vary depending on the
type of food, its weight and quality. Deviations are therefore
possible.
