Before using the appliance for the first time
● Thoroughly clean your ceramic hob first. The ceramic hob should be treated with the
same care as a glass surface.
● Switch on the ventilation in the room or open a window, as the appliance could emit
an unpleasant smell during first use.
● Operate the appliance while observing all safety guidelines.
The ceramic hob is equipped with electronic touch control sensor fields, which are
operated by touching the marked area with a finger.
Each time a sensor field is touched, an acoustic signal can be heard.
When changing the heat setting, attention should be paid that only one sensor field at a
time is touched. When two or more sensor fields are touched at the same time (except
when a cooking zone is switched off), the appliance ignores the control signals and may
trigger a fault indication if sensor fields are touched for a long time.
Choice of cookware
There is specially tested cookware available for cooking and baking in cookers with ceramic
hob. Follow the instructions of their manufacturer.
Cookware with aluminium or copper base can leave stains, which very difficult to remove.
Particular caution is advised in the case of enamel-painted cookware, which could cause
irreparable damage when contents off accidentally. To achieve optimal energy use, the
optimal cooking times and to prevent seething food from getting burned on the hob, please
follow these guidelines.
Cookware base:
Cookware should have always a stable, flat base. Base with sharp edges, burrs and the
charred remains of food may scratch the ceramic hob!
Cookware size:
Cookware diameter should correspond as closely as possible the diameter of the hob cooking
Cookware lid:
Lid prevents heat from escaping and thus reduces heating time and lowers energy consumption.
Control Panel
When the cooking surface is connected to the electricity mains, the pilot light should light up
briefly above the child lock sensor field (6), after which the appliance can be switched on.
No objects should be placed on the sensor fields (this could cause an error).
Touch sensor fields should be always kept clean.
Switching on the appliance
When the appliance is switched off then all the cooking zones are disconnected and the
indicators are off. Touch the on/off sensor field (1) to switch on the appliance. „0” will appear
on all cooking zone displays (3) for 10 seconds. After selecting a desired cooking zone by
touching the cooking zone selector sensor field (2) (see „Setting the heating power”), now the
desired heat setting can be selected using the (+)(5) or (-)(4) sensor fields .
If none of the sensor fields is touched within 10 seconds, the appliance switches itself off.
If child lock function is activated, the appliance cannot be switched on (see
„Releasing the child lock”).
Switching on the cooking zones
After switching on the appliance using the on/off sensor field (1) cooking zones can be operated as
1. Select the desired cooking zone using the cooking zone selector sensor field (2). (Sensor field layout
reflects the layout of individual cooking zones),
2. Set the desired heat setting using the (+)(5) or (-)(4) sensor fields,
3. To change the heat setting again as described in point 1, select the desired cooking zone using the
cooking zone selector sensor field (2), and then set the desired heat setting using the (+)(5) or (-)(4)
sensor fields.
If none of the sensor fields is touched within 10 seconds, the cooking zone
switches off.
A cooking zone is active when a dot is displayed by the number „ ” on the
cooking zone display. This indicates a cooking zone is ready for the heat setting
to be set or changed.
Setting the heating power
In order to set the heat setting, first select the desired cooking zone using the cooking zone
selector sensor (2). Then, when the cooking zone display (3) shows „
”, start setting the
desired heat setting using the (+)(5) or (-)(4) sensor field.
If you do not wish the automatic warm-up function to operate, start the heat setting
selection by touching the (+)(5) sensor field first. You can then gradually increase the
heat setting by operating the (+)(5) sensor field, or lower the heat setting by operating
the (-)(4) sensor field.
If, however, you do wish to cook using the automatic warm-up function, start heat
setting selection by touching the (-)(4) sensor first.
(see „Automatic warm-up function”).
Automatic warm-up function
Each cooking zone is equipped with an automatic warm-up function. When this is activated,
then the given cooking zone is switched on at full
power for a time depending on the heat setting
selected, and is then switched back to the heat
setting originally set.
Activate the automatic warm-up function by
setting the desired heat setting by touching the
(-)(4) sensor field first. Then the heat setting
„9”. Then touch the sensor (+) (5). Then the
heat setting „9” is displayed intermittently on
the cooking zone display (3) with the letter “A”
for around 10 seconds.
If you start to select the heat setting within 10
seconds by touching the (-)(4) sensor field, then
the automatic warm-up function is activated and
the letter „A” is displayed intermittently with the
cooking zone’s heat setting selected for as long
as the function is activated.
The cooking heat setting can be now changed at
any moment using the method described above
in the „Setting the heating power” section.
Cooking heat
Fast cooking time
If you do not start to select the heat setting within 10 seconds, then the letter
„A” vanishes and the automatic warm-up function is inactive.
If you do not wish the automatic warm-up function to operate, start selecting
the heat setting by touching the (+)(5) sensor field.
Switching off selected cooking zone
Selected cooking zone may be switched off in the following way:
1. Select the desired cooking zone using the cooking zone selection sensor field (2).
2. Then simultaneously touch (+)(5) and (-)(4) sensor fields, or use the (-)(4) sensor field to
lower the setting to „0”.
The letter „H” appears on the indicator symbolising residual heat.
The child lock function
The child lock function, which is activated by touching the child lock sensor field (6), protects
the appliance from being unintentionally operated or switched on by children or pets.
Setting the child lock function when all cooking zones are switched off („0” is displayed on all
cooking zone displays) protects the cooking surface from inadvertent operation. The appliance
can be operated once the child lock function is released.
When the mains power is off, the child lock function is automatically deactivated.
Setting the child lock
To set the child lock function touch the child lock sensor field (6) until the pilot light (6) comes
An acoustic signal is heard briefly when the pilot light comes on.
Releasing the child lock
To release the child lock function touch the child lock sensor field (7) until the pilot light (7)
goes out. An acoustic signal is heard briefly when the pilot light goes out.
Setting and releasing the child lock is possible when the appliance is switched
on or cooking zone displays (3) indicate „0”.
Residual heat indicator
Heat energy that remains accumulated in the cooking zone after cooking is called the residual heat. The appliance displays two different levels of residual heat. When a cooking zone
temperature is above 60°C and the cooking zone or the appliance is switched off, the relevant
cooking zone display will show the letter „H”. Residual heat indication is displayed as long as
the cooking zone temperature exceeds 60°C. When a cooking zone temperature is between
45°C and 60°C, the relevant cooking zone display will show the letter „h” indicating low residual
heat. When a cooking zone temperature is below 45°C the residual heat indication is turned
off. In the event of power outage when residual heat above 60°C is indicated, the residual
heat indicator will flash when power is resorted. Residual heat indicator continue to flash until
the maximum cooling time has elapsed or the cooking zone is selected and used.
When residual heat indicator is
on, do not touch the cooking
zone as there is a risk of burns
and do not place on it any
items sensitive to heat!
During failure of power supply
„H” residual heat indicator is not
displayed. However, cooking zones may still be hot!
Limiting the operating time
In order to increase efficiency, the cooking
surface is fitted with a operating time limiter
for each of the cooking zones. The maximum
operating time is set according to the last heat
setting selected.
If you do not change the heat setting for a long
time (see table) then the associated cooking
zone is automatically switched off and the
residual heat indicator is activated. However,
you can switch on and operate individual cooking zones at any time in accordance with
the operating instructions.
Cooking heat
Maximum operating time (hours)
Keeping food warm
Keep warm function allows for keeping food warm on a cooking zone. The selected cooking zone
operates at a low heat setting. Cooking zone’s heat setting is automatically adjusted so that food
temperature is kept at a constant temperature of 65°C. Thanks to this, ready to serve, warm food
retains its taste and does not stick to the pot’s bottom. This function can be also used to melt
butter or chocolate.
Keep warm setting is an additional heat setting available between „0” and „1” and is indicated
on the display as „
The keep warm function „
” is activated when heat setting is lowered below
Switching off the appliance
The cooking surface operates when at least one cooking zone is on. Pressing the on/off
sensor field (1) switches off the appliance, and the letter „H” for residual heat appears on the
cooking zone display (3).
Daily cleaning and proper maintenance
have crucial impact on the durability of your
ceramic plate.
Clean the ceramic plate observing
the same rules as for glass. Never
use abrasive or aggressive cleaning agents, scrubbing powders or
scratching sponges.
Cleaning the plate after every use
Removal of stains
• Wipe off slight, not-burnt patches of
dirt using damp cloth without cleaning
agent. Washing liquid can cause blue
di­sco­lo­ra­tion to appear on the plate. The
stub­born stains often cannot be re­mo­
ved after first cleaning, even if special
cleaning agents are used.
• Remove larger patches of dirt, stron­
gly sticking to the plate using sharp
scrap­per and wipe off the sur­fa­ce with
a damp cloth.
• Li­ght pearly stains (aluminium re­si­du­
es) can be removed from cooled plate
using special cleaning agents. Cal­ca­
re­ous re­si­du­es (i.e. boiled over wa­ter)
can be re­mo­ved with vinegar or spe­cial
cle­aning agents.
• Do not switch off the hotplate when re­mo­
ving sugar, sugar-containing food, plastic
or aluminium foil! Immediately scrape off
the residuals (when still hot) from the
hotplate using a sharp scrap­per. When
the dirt is removed you can switch off
the plate and clean it again after cooling
down using special cleaning agents.
Special cleaning agents can be bought in
supermarkets, special electromechanical
shops, drugstores and shops with kitchen
appliances. Sharp scrappers can be bought
in DIY shops, shops with building tools and
painting accessories.
Cleaning scrapper
Never apply cleaning agent on a hot hotplate.
Leave the cleaning agent to dry and then
wipe it off with a wet cloth. Any residuals of
cleaning agents should be wiped off with a
damp cloth before heating the plate for the
next time, as otherwise they can have caustic
If from any reason you are not
able to control the switched on
plate, switch off the main switch
or screw out the fuse and call the
Customer Service.
Should cracks or splits appear on
the surface of your ceramic plate,
immediately disconnect the plate
from the mains (by switching off
the fuse or unplugging the plug)
and call the Customer Service.
Failure to observe the ceramic plate maintenance instructions can result in losing
your warranty rights!
Periodic inspections
In addition to current maintenance and care,
the following shall be arranged for:
• Periodic inspections of control elements
and units of the cooktop. Upon expiration
of the warranty, service department shall
be ordered technical inspections of the
appliance at least once every two years.
• All operation faults must be repaired.
• Cooktop units shall be maintained according to the maintenance schedule.
Installation work and repairs should only be performed by a service
department or a qualified technician in accordance with all applicable codes and standards.
Every time when emergency situation occurs you should:
● switch off the working assemblies of the plate
