Use
Advice on energy-saving
• The diameter of the base of the pan must
correspond to the diameter of the
cooking zone.
• When buying a saucepan, check
whether the diameter indicated is that of
the base or the top of the container, as
the top is almost always larger than the
base.
• The base of the cookware must be thick
and completely flat. It should also be
clean and dry. The hob should be clean
and dry as well.
• When preparing dishes with long
cooking times, you can save time and
energy by using a pressure cooker,
which also makes it possible to preserve
the vitamins in the food.
• Make sure that the pressure cooker
contains enough liquid as, if there is not
enough and it overheats, this may cause
damage to both the pressure cooker and
the cooking zone.
• If possible, always cover saucepans with
a suitable lid.
56
• Choose a pan suitable for the quantity of
food to be cooked. A large, half-empty
saucepan leads to a waste of energy.
• Do not use cast-iron cookware or
cookware with a rough base.
Under certain circumstances, if the
hob and the oven are being used
at the same time, the maximum
power limit that can be used by the
electrical system might be
exceeded.

Use
Limiting the cooking time
Protection from overheating
The hob has an automatic device which
limits the duration of use.
If the cooking zone settings are not
changed, the maximum duration of
operation for each zone depends on the
power level selected.
When the device for limiting the duration of
use is activated, the cooking zone turns off,
a short alert sounds and, if the zone is hot,
the symbol
appears on the display.
If you are using the hob at full power for a
long time, for the electronics it could be
difficult to cool down, especially if the room
temperature is high.
In this case a device intervenes to cut off the
power supply to the front cooking zones
and the display shows
and
flashing.
If the temperature of the electronic circuit
board does not decrease, the device will
disconnect power to all the cooking zones
and
will appear on the
display (on some models only).
Cooking can be resumed once the
temperature returns below alarm levels.

Cleaning and maintenance
Improper use
Risk of damage to surfaces
• Do not use steam jets to clean the
appliance.
• Do not spill sugar or sweet mixtures on
the hob during cooking.
• Do not place materials or substances
that could melt (plastic or aluminium foil).
• Keep sensor keys clean at all times and
do not rest any object on them.
• Do not use cleaning products containing
chlorine, ammonia or bleach on parts
made of steel or that have metallic
surface finishes (e.g. anodizing, nickelor chromium-plating).
• Do not use abrasive or corrosive
detergents (e.g. scouring powders, stain
removers and metallic sponges) on
glass parts. Use wooden or plastic
utensils.
4.1 Cleaning the surfaces
To keep the surfaces in good condition,
they should be cleaned regularly after use.
Let them cool first.
4.2 Ordinary weekly cleaning
Clean and maintain the hob once a week
using an ordinary glass cleaning product.
Always follow the manufacturer’s
instructions. The silicon in these products
creates a protective, water-repellent
membrane which also resists dirt. All marks
stay on the membrane and can therefore be
removed easily. After cleaning, dry the
surface with a clean cloth. Make sure that
there is no detergent left on the cooking
surface as it will undergo a corrosive
reaction when heated up and could modify
the structure of the cooking surface.
4.3 Food stains or residues
Light coloured marks from pans with
aluminium bases can be easily cleaned off
with a cloth moistened in vinegar.
After cooking, remove any burnt residues
with the scraper provided; rinse with water
and dry thoroughly with a clean cloth.
Regular use of the scraper considerably
reduces the need for chemical detergents
for the daily cleaning of the hob.
Dirt which may have fallen on the hob
while cleaning lettuce or potatoes can
scratch the hob when moving pans.
Consequently, remove any dirt from the
cooking surface immediately.
Changes in colour do not affect the
operation and stability of the glass. These
are not alterations to the material of the hob
but just residues which have not been
removed and have then carbonised.
59
EN
4 Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning and maintenance
Shiny surfaces can form due to the bases
of pans, especially aluminium ones, rubbing
on the surface, and due to the use of
unsuitable detergents. They are difficult to
remove using conventional cleaning
products. It may be necessary to repeat the
cleaning process several times. Use of
corrosive detergents or rubbing of pan
bases can wear away the decoration on
the hob over time and contribute to the
formation of stains.
4.4 What to do if...
The hob does not work:
• Make sure that the hob is connected and
that the main switch is turned on.
• Make sure that there is no power failure.
• Make sure that the fuse has not blown. In
this case replace the fuse.
• Make sure that the circuit breaker of the
residential electrical system has not
tripped. In this case, reset the circuit

Installation
5.2 Section cut from the countertop
The following operation requires
building and/or carpentry work
and must therefore be carried out
by a competent tradesman.
Installation can be carried out on
various materials such as masonry,
metal, solid wood or plastic
laminated wood as long as they
are heat resistant (>90°C).
5.1 Safety instructions
Heat production during appliance
operation
Risk of fire
• Check that the carcase material is heat
resistant.
• Check that the carcase has the required
openings.
Veneers, adhesives or plastic coatings on
adjacent furniture should be temperatureresistant (>90°C), otherwise they might
warp over time.
The minimum clearance between a
ventilation hood and the cooking surface
must be at least the distance indicated in the
ventilation hood installation instructions.
The minimum clearances must also be
respected for the edges of the hob on the
back as indicated in the mounting
illustrations.
Make a hole in the countertop of the unit
according to the dimensions shown in the

Installation
Over built-in oven unit
The clearance between the hob and the
kitchen furniture or other installed
appliances must be enough to ensure
sufficient ventilation and air discharge.
If installed above an oven, a space must be
left between the bottom of the hob and the
top of the appliance installed below.
If installed on top of an oven, the
latter must be equipped with a
cooling fan.
On top of an empty kitchen unit or
drawers
If there are other pieces of furniture (lateral
walls, drawers, etc.), dishwashers or fridges
under the hob, a double-layer wooden
base must be installed at least 20 mm from
the bottom of the hob to avoid any
accidental contact. It must only be possible
to remove the double-layer base by using
suitable tools.
