• Avoid placing metal cooking utensils on
the cooking surface areas. Metal objects
can become hot and cause burns.
• Know which touch keypad controls each
surface of the cooking zones.
• Clean the appliance regularly to keep all
parts free of grease that could catch fire.
Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and grease filters
should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to
accumulate on hood or filter. Greasy deposits
in the fan could catch fire. Refer to hood
manufacturer's instructions for cleaning.
• Use proper pan size. This appliance is
equipped with one or more Cooking Zones
of different sizes.
• Select utensils having flat bottoms large
enough to cover the Cooking Zones. The
pan detection sensors will not allow the
affected cooking zones to operate without
a pan present.
6
• Do not place any object on or near the
control keypad area in order to prevent
accidental activation of the cooktop
controls.
• Utensil handles should be turned inward
and should not extend over adjacent
cooking zones to reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage
due to unintentional contact with the utensil.
• Never leave prepared food on the Cooking
Zones. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has
boiled dry may melt or become damaged.
• Protective liners: Do not use aluminum foil
to line any part of the cooktop. Only use
aluminum foil as recommended after the
cooking process, if used as a cover to be
placed over the food. Any other use of
aluminum foil may result in the risk of electric
shock, fire or short circuit.
• Glazed cooking utensils: Only certain
types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for rangetop service without
breaking due to the sudden change in
temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooktop use.
• Ventilating hood: The ventilating hood
above your cooking surface should be
cleaned frequently, so the grease from

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE
HOW TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE APPLIANCE
• Prior to using your cooktop for the first time,
apply the recommended cooktop cleaning
creme to the ceramic surface. Buff with a
non-abrasive cloth or pad. This will make
cleaning easier when soiled from cooking.
The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves
a protective finish on the glass to help prevent
scratches and abrasions.
• Do not use the cooktop as a worksurface or
storage space.
• Please be careful at the edges when moving
pots and pans around.
• Do not have the cooking zones on with empty
pans, or with no pots or pans on them.
• Ceramic glass is very tough, and impervious
to sharp temperature changes but is not
unbreakable. It can be damaged if particularly
hard or sharp objects fall onto it.
• Be very cautious if using pots made of cast
iron, or other pots with rough edges or burrs.
Moving these can cause scratches on glass.
• If sugar or a mixture containing sugar falls onto
a hot cooking zone and melts, remove
immediately, while still hot. If left to cool down,
it may damage the surface when removed.
NOTE: There is a risk of burning yourself
when the glass scraper is used on a hot
cooking zone!
• Keep meltable objects or materials away from
the ceramic glass surface, for example, plastic
utensils, aluminum foil, or cooking wraps.
If any materials or foodstuffs melt on the
ceramic-glass surface, these should be
cleaned up immediately.
DISPOSAL OF OLD APPLIANCES
To protect the environment, it is important that
worn-out appliances are disposed of in the
correct manner.
• The appliance must not be disposed of with
household rubbish.
• You can obtain information about collection
dates or public refuse disposal sites from
your local health council or environmental
health office.
CAUTION
Before disposing of old appliances please
make them inoperable so they cannot be
a source of danger. To do this, have a
qualified person disconnect the appliance
from the house circuitry.
READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

I N T RO D U C T I O N TO I N D U C T I O N C O O K I N G
HOW INDUCTION COOKING WORKS
IMPORTANT:
An induction coil is beneath
the ceramic glass cooking
surface. This generates
magnetic fields, which act
directly on the base of the
pots and pans as
compared to methods that
first heat the ceramic glass. This means that the
base of the pan is immediately heated up,
saving time and energy.
Since the heat required for cooking is generated
directly in the base of the pan, the Cooking Zone
itself warms up only slightly. The cooktop becomes
hot from the heat from the base of the pan.
NOTE: If there is no pot or pan on the cooking
zone, there is no energy transfer (heating up).
This prevents the Cooking Zones being switched
on and becoming hot accidentally.
• Remove all tape and packaging wrap before
using the appliance. Destroy the carton and
plastic bags after unpacking the appliance.
Never allow children to play with packaging
materials.
• Electromagnetic fields can affect electronic
circuits and interfere with portable radios
and phones.
• Do not put magnetically active objects (e.g.,
credit cards, computer diskettes, cassettes) on
or near the ceramic glass surface while one or
more induction cooking zones are in use!
• Do not put any metallic objects (e.g., spoons,
pan lids) on the Cooking Zones as they can
become hot when the Cooking Zones are
in use.
SELECTING COOKWARE
The magnetic Cooking Zone sensors located below the cooktop surface require the use of cookware
made with magnetic material in order to start the heating process on any of the Cooking Zones.
When purchasing pans, look for cookware specifically labeled by the manufacturer for use with
induction cooktops.
POTS AND PANS
SUITABILITY TEST:
• In principle, all pots and pans with magnetic
bases are suitable. These include steel, steelenamel, as well as cast-iron pots and pans.
• High grade steel pans with a mixed metal base
(sandwich base, e.g. Tefal® with an
aluminum/copper base) are suitable for
induction only if the manufacturer has
expressly marked them as such. In that case
they have a magnetic material in the base.
• If you wish to use a special type of pan (e.g., a
pressure cooker, simmering pan, wok), please
follow the manufacturer’s instructions and do
not use a very thin pan.
NOTE: Some cookware can produce noises
when used on induction cooking zones. This is
not a fault in the cooktop, and its function will not
be impaired in any way as a result.
If you are not sure if a pot or pan is suitable for
use with your induction cooktop, you can find out
with a few simple tests:
• Place a pot filled with a little water (1/8″–1/4″)
on the Cooking Zone. Set the Cooking Zone to
full power (power level 9).
CAUTION
The pan base of suitable kitchenware
heats up within a few seconds! Water
should boil rapidly.
• You can also check
cookware suitability
with a magnet. If the
magnet remains fixed to
the base of the pan, the
pan is suitable for
induction cooking.

(continued)
AVOIDING SCRATCHES
USE FLAT-BOTTOMED COOKWARE
It is recommended to always use heavier gauge
stainless steel cookware on your induction
cooktop surface. This will help reduce the
possibility of developing scratches on the
ceramic surface. Low-quality cookware can
scratch the cooktop surface.
Cookware should always be lifted over the
ceramic cooktop surface to prevent scratching.
Sliding any type of cookware over the ceramic
cooktop can affect the overall appearance of the
cooktop. Over time, sliding ANY type of cookware
over the ceramic cooktop may alter the overall
appearance of the cooktop. Eventually, the
buildup of scratches can make cleaning the
surface difficult and degrade the overall
appearance of the cooktop.
Scratches can also result from grains of sand
(e.g., after washing vegetables) which are
dragged with the pot across the cooking surface.
Cookware must fully contact the surface of the
cooking element. Use flat-bottomed pans sized to
fit the cooking element and
amount of food being
prepared. Check for
flatness by rotating a ruler
across the bottom of the
cookware.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY:
Always follow the recommendations for proper
cookware type and size. In addition:
• Do not use dirty pans with grease buildup.
Always use pans that are easy to clean after
cooking, and make sure that the bottoms of the
pans are clean and dry.
• When cooking with large amounts of liquid, use
large pots so that nothing can boil over.
• Do not let pans boil dry. This may cause
permanent damage in the form of breakage,
fusion, or marring that can affect the ceramic
cooktop. (This type of damage is not covered
by your warranty.)
• Match the pan size and Cooking Zone to the
amount of food being prepared.
• Always position pots and pans before you
switch on the Cooking Zone.
• Dirty cooking zones and cookware use
more electricity.
• Whenever possible, always have the lid firmly
placed on the pots and pans so that they are
completely covered.
I N T RO D U C T I O N TO I N D U C T I O N C O O K I N G
Minimum pan size =
71⁄4″ (180 mm)
SELECTING THE PROPER PAN SIZE
• There are 4 Cooking Zones on the
induction cooktop. Each element requires a
minimum pan size to be used effectively.
The inner ring of each cooking zone is a
guide to correctly match the minimum pan
size. The bottom of the pan must fully
cover the inner ring for proper cooking
to occur.
• The thicker outer ring at each Cooking
Zone is helpful to determine the pan
MAXIMUM size. After centering the
cookware on the Cooking Zone, make sure
the cookware does not extend more than
1/2″ beyond the thicker line on the Cooking
Zone. The pan must make FULL contact
on the glass surface without the bottom of
the pan touching the metal cooktop trim.
Minimum pan size =
5″ (125 mm)
Minimum
pan size =
53⁄4″ (145 mm)
Only use the supplied pan on
the bridge element.
If a pan made of the correct material is centered
properly on any of the active Cooking Zones but is
TOO SMALL, the affected Cooking Zone LED will
blink and the pan will not heat.
COOKWARE SELECTION AND PLACEMENT
It is important that the proper cookware be used and placed correctly on the cooktop. ANY one of the
incorrect conditions shown below may be detected by the sensors located below the ceramic
cooktop surface. If this happens, one or more of the Cooking Zones will not heat, and an F will
appear in the affected Cooking Zone display. Correct the problem before attempting to use the

USING CHILD LOCK
You can lock the entire cooktop at any time when
it is not in use. Locking the cooktop will prevent
Cooking Zones from being turned on
accidentally.
SETTING CHILD LOCK
The cooktop must be OFF to set the
CHILD LOCK function. If it is not OFF,
touch and hold the POWER pad for
approximately 2 seconds. The indicator
above the POWER pad will turn OFF.
CANCELING CHILD LOCK

be used normally.
Touch and hold the CHILD LOCK pad for
3 seconds. The indicator light above the
CHILD LOCK pad will turn on to indicate
that the cooktop is locked.
OTHER FUNCTIONS
POWER SHARING
Your cooktop is equipped with four induction
Cooking Zones within two heating sections. The
right and left Cooking Zones are powered by two
independent induction inverters—one inverter for
each of the two heating sections. Two Cooking
Zones in a heating section share the power of
one inverter. This is called power sharing.
For example, if you are cooking on both right
Cooking Zones, the last power level set will be
maintained, while the first Cooking Zone may
experience a slight reduction in the power level.
POWER SHARING TIPS:
Remember to set the power level for the food
item you wish to keep constant last. When using
two Cooking Zones, you can maintain a constant
power level for two pans on separate heating
sections. Place one pan on one of the Cooking
Zones of the left heating section and the other
pan on one of the Cooking Zones of the right
heating section.

AUTOMATIC SHUTOFF
AUTOMATIC POWER LEVEL CONTROL
If a Cooking Zone is in constant use for more
than 17 hours and the control setting is not
changed, the Cooking Zone will shut off
automatically.
The power level displayed may be different from
the actual power level at the high temperature
range. To prevent the cooktop from overheating,
the power level is controlled automatically.
CARE AND CLEANING
General cleaning for induction ceramic glass
cooking surfaces is considerably easier than
for cooking surfaces with radiant heating.
NOTE:
To prevent accidental activation of the controls, it
is recommended that you set the CHILD LOCK
feature before cleaning.
REMOVING HEAVY SOIL
To remove food that has boiled over or stubborn
spills, use a glass scraper.
1 Hold the glass scraper at an angle of about
45° to the ceramic-glass surface.
2 Remove soiling by sliding the blade across
the area.
IMPORTANT:
• Cleaning agents must not come in contact with
the hot ceramic-glass surface. All cleaning
agents must be rinsed off thoroughly with
clean water.
• Do not use any aggressive cleaners such as
grill or oven sprays, coarse scouring cleansers,
or abrasive pan cleaners.
• Clean the ceramic-glass surface after each
use when it is warm to the touch or cold.
This will prevent spills from becoming burnt on.
Remove water marks, grease and discoloration
with a glass scraper and ceramic-glass
cleaner.
NOTE:
You can obtain glass scrapers and ceramicglass cleaners from your local hardware store.
GENERAL CLEANING
1 When it is cool, wipe the ceramic-glass
surface with a damp cloth and a small
amount of ceramic glass cleaner.
2 Wipe dry with a clean cloth.
3 Once a week, thoroughly clean the entire
ceramic-glass cooking surface with a
commercially available ceramic-glass
cleaner.
3 Use a ceramic glass cleaner as described in
GENERAL CLEANING.
PROBLEM SOILS
1 Remove sugar, melted plastic, aluminum foil,
or other meltable materials with a glass
scraper immediately and while still hot.
Failure to do so can cause permanent
damage to the cooktop surface. If the
Cooking Zone has already cooled down,
warm it up again.
IMPORTANT: There is a risk of burning yourself
when the glass scraper is used on a hot Cooking
Zone. Use care and wear an oven mitt.
2 Then clean the cooktop normally when it has
cooled down.
NOTE: Scratches or dark marks on the ceramicglass surface caused by a pan base with sharp
edges cannot be removed. However, they do not
impair the function of the cooktop.
4 Then, wipe the ceramic-glass surface
using a clean, soft cloth dampened with
clean water, and polish dry with a clean
lint-free cloth.
