You have just purchased a glass ceramic hob featuring halogen and radiant cooking zones. You will now be able to benefit
from the four assets of halogen cooking:
• Top performance - The infrared radiation ensures the immediate transmission of heat. The rapid rise in temperature
and the poor thermal inertia of the halogen cooking zones allow for guaranteed control flexibility.
• Comfort - Halogen cooking ensures the same visual comfort as gas cooking. The brightness of the lamps - just like
the length of a flame - and the height of the power level display correspond to the intensity of the heating power.
•
Stylish design - The perfectly smooth surface allows for perfect integration into your kitchen worktop.
• Practicality and convenience - The temperature of the halogen lamps drops instantly as soon as the heating
power is reduced. A residual heat indicator situated beside each cooking zone shows that the temperature is still above
60°C, even after use.

This appliance was designed for non-professional, household use.
Before using the appliance, read the instructions in the owner's manual carefully since it contains all the instructions you
require to ensure safe installation, use and maintenance. Keep this owner's manual in a safe place for future reference.
Using the hob for the first time
The glue used on the hob seals may leave greasy traces on the glass surface during warehousing. We recommend you
wipe these traces off before using the appliance, using an ordinary cleaning product (non abrasive polish).
During the first few hours of use, you may detect a smell of rubber, which will disappear quickly.

Hob description
The hob is fitted with "Haloring" cooking zones with circular lamps and/or "Quickring" radiant cooking zones.
The "Haloring" cooking zone comprises a circular halogen lamp for the optimum distribution of the heat radiated. Its
properties are similar to those of gas burners, making it ideal for quick frying over a high flame, frying and all other cooking
processes requiring a rapid rise in temperature.
The "Quickring" radiant cooking zone comprises several coils that guarantee the distribution of the heat over the
bottom of the cookware. The precision of the Mijotronic system and the stable and homogeneous distribution of heat will
guarantee the success of all cooking on low heat: simmering, sauces or reheating.

Even after the zone has been turned off, the corresponding residual heat indicator stays on for as long as the zone is
at a temperature above 60°C.
The 12-setting knobs allow you to control the cooking zones.

Cooking zone control
Halogen zones and radiant zones are controlled by 12-position Mijotronic knobs to ensure the correct supply of energy
according to time: the cooking zones do not heat constantly, but rather in pre-set sequences.

What cookware to use
•
•
•
•
Use pans with a very thick flat bottom so they adhere fully to the heating zone.
The diameter of the pans must match the diameter of the cooking zone so that all the available heat can be used.
Avoid at all costs all cookware with irregular rough bases which could scratch the glass surface.
It is preferable that you cover your cookware with a suitable lid to speed up the rise in temperature.
Maintenance
The vitroceramic glass used for the heating surface is smooth and poreless and it is also resistant to thermal shocks and
to mechanical shocks under normal conditions of use. In order to preserve these properties, we recommend you care for
your hob as follows:
• for ordinary maintenance, just wipe it with a damp sponge and dry it thoroughly using paper towels.
• If the hob is dirty, rub clean using a special cleaner suitable for vitroceramic glass, rinse off and dry thoroughly.
• food residue and dirt can be removed using a special scraper. Do this as soon as possible, do not wait for the hob
to cool down in order to avoid incrustations. For excellent results, use a special stainless steel wool pad for vitroceramic
glass cleaning soaked in soapy water.
• When the hob is clean, you can apply a special product for the care and protection of the same: this type of product
leaves an invisible film on the surface of the hob to protect the same against any spills and boiled-over food. It is best if
you do this when the hob is lukewarm or cold.
• Make sure you always rinse the hob with clean water and dry it thoroughly: otherwise the cleaning products could
become encrusted onto the hob during subsequent cooking.

Maintenance and useful tips
• Never use abrasive or corrosive substances, such as aerosol cleaners for grills and ovens, stain removers or
rust removers, scouring powders and abrasive sponges: even the delicate ones could scratch the hob surface irreversibly.
• We recommend you keep all items which could melt away from the hob, such as plastic utensils, sugar or
products with a high sugar content. Should liquid boil over onto the hob surface, remove it immediately (while the
hob is still hot) using a razor blade scraper, in order to avoid damaging the surface.
• Use this hob exclusively for cooking. Do not place items on the hob when the same is not in use. Do not use the
hob as a work surface (by placing lids, saucepans or dishcloths on it, for example), nor as a chopping board.
• Never leave aluminium wrappers, aluminium foil and plastic cookware on the hob when hot or still warm.
• Do not use steam cleaners or high pressure cleaners to clean your appliance.
• If you use small electric appliances near the hob, make sure their power supply cable does not come into contact
with the hot parts of the hob.
• Make sure all pan handles are always pointing inwards towards the centre of the hob to prevent any accidental
spills.
• Certain fundamental rules must be followed when using electrical appliances. The following are of particular
importance:
•
do not touch the appliance with wet or damp hands,
•
never use the appliance when barefoot,
•
do not use extensions; if this is inevitable, please take the necessary precautions,
•
never pull on the power supply cable or the appliance itself to unplug it from the mains socket,
•
never leave the appliance exposed to atmospheric agents (rain, sun, etc.),
•
do not allow children or persons who are not familiar with the appliance to use it without supervision.
• If the surface of the glass cracks, unplug the appliance immediately. For any repairs, contact only an authorised
after-sales service centre and demand original spare parts. Failure to comply with the above may compromise the
safety of the appliance.
• The glass ceramic hob is resistant to thermal and mechanical shocks. However, it may break due to a shock
caused by a sharp object, such as a tool for example. In this case, unplug the appliance immediately and
contact an authorised after-sales service centre to have it repaired.
• Cut the power supply cable after disconnecting it from the power mains when you decide not to use the appliance
any longer. Also make all potentially dangerous parts of the appliance safe, above all for children who could play with
the appliance.
The guarantee does not cover damage to the hob caused by incorrect use.

Fastening
Your hob is supplied with a seal.
Make sure it adheres perfectly to the lower surface of the hob frame. It is extremely important that the seal covers all the
hob corners completely and that it seals the latter perfectly along all its perimeter to ensure the full airtightness between
the hob and the worktop in order to prevent any accidental spills from penetrating the furniture cabinet beneath the hob.
Very important: It is vital that you ensure the glass ceramic hob is built into a perfectly flat supporting surface. Deformations
due to improper fastening could alter the characteristics of the hob and compromise its performance.
The fastening springs are fastened by Torx screws (see diagram on the next page).
To remove the hob from its place of installation, you should either unscrew the Torx screws at the front or the Torx screws
at the back.
This is why it is vital that these screws be kept accessible at all times.
Insert the hob into the cut-out slot, applying pressure all along the perimeter of the hob frame so that the latter adheres fully
to the worktop.
