keeping the gas hob and its
surroundings in a clean condition at all
times. Any damage which may be
caused by cockroaches or other vermin
will not be covered by the guarantee.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ The gas hob gets hot when in use
and remains hot for quite a while after
being switched off. Do not touch it
whilst it could still be hot.
~ If a cooker hood is installed above
the gas hob, ensure that the burners
are always covered with a pan when in
use. Otherwise flames could reach the
cooker hood, parts of which could then
be damaged or set on fire.
~ Do not leave the gas hob
unattended whilst it is being used. Oil
and fat are potential fire hazards as
they can ignite if overheated.
~ If oil or fat does catch fire, do not
attempt to put out the flames with water.
Use a suitable fire blanket, saucepan
lid, damp towel or similar to smother the
flames.
~ Do not use the gas hob to heat up
the room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects near the appliance
could catch fire. The life of the
appliance could also be reduced.
~ Do not flambé under a cooker hood.
The flames could set the cooker hood
on fire.
~ For added protection, it is advisable
to use heat-resistant pot holders or
gloves when using the gas hob. Ensure
that they do not come into contact with
the flames. Do not use large cloths, tea
towels or similar as the ends could
touch the flames and catch fire. Take
care not to let the gloves get damp or
wet, as this causes heat to transfer
through the material more quickly with
the risk of scalding or burning yourself.
~ Do not use the gas hob as a resting
place for anything. The article could
melt or catch fire if residual heat is still
present or if the appliance is switched
on by mistake.
~ Do not cover the gas hob with, e. g.
with a hob cover, a cloth or protective
foil. The material could catch fire,
shatter or melt if the appliance is
switched on by mistake or if the hob is
still warm.
~ Do not use plastic or aluminium foil
containers. These melt at high
temperatures and could catch fire.
~ Do not heat up unopened tins of
food on the hob as pressure will build
up in the tin, causing it to explode. This
could result in injury and scalding or
damage.
~ Make sure all the components of the
gas burners have been correctly
assembled before switching on.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Pans must be the correct size for the
burner they are used on (see "Suitable
pans"). A pan which is too small will be
unstable on the pan support. If the pan
diameter is too large, flames can
spread out to the sides and damage or
burn the worktop, wall claddings or
surrounding units and also parts of the
hob. Miele cannot be held liable for this
type of damage.
~ Using a gas hob results in the
~ Ensure that the flames from the
gas hob may result in a requirement for
additional ventilation, e.g. opening a
window or a more effective form of
mechanical ventilation, e.g. use of a
cooker hood on a higher setting.
burner do not spread out beyond the
base and up the sides of the pan.
~ Unless the pan manufacturer states
that you can do so, do not use pans
with very thin bases on this gas hob,
and never heat up empty pans as they
could get damaged. This could
damage the appliance.
~ The pan supports supplied must
always be used. Pans must not be
placed directly on the burner.
~ Do not store any inflammable
objects near the gas hob.
~ Remove splashes of fat and other
food debris from the surface as soon as
possible. These are a fire hazard.
~ Replace the pan supports carefully
to avoid scratching the surface of the
hob.
build-up of heat, moisture and
combustion products in the room in
which it is installed. To ensure that
there is adequate ventilation, especially
when the gas hob is in use: make sure
natural ventilation to the room is not
hindered or use a mechanical
ventilation device (e.g. a cooker hood).
~ Intensive and prolonged use of the
~ When using the gas hob, an
extractor hood or a ventilation device
must be used.
~ When using an electrical appliance,
e.g. a hand-held food blender, near the
gas hob, ensure that the cable of the
electrical appliance does not come into
contact with the hot gas hob. The
insulation on the cable could become
damaged, giving rise to an electric
shock hazard.
~ Spray canisters, aerosols and other
inflammable substances must not be
stored in a drawer under the hob.
Cutlery inserts must be heat-resistant.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not use pans that are large
enough to cover more than one burner.
The resulting build-up of heat could
damage the gas hob.
~ Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated. Some
foods may contain micro-organisms
which are only destroyed by thorough
cooking at a sufficiently high
temperature for long enough.
Therefore, when cooking or reheating
food such as poultry, it is particularly
important that the food is completely
cooked through. If in doubt, select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
~ Avoid allowing liquids or foods
containing salt to spill onto the hob. If
salty foods or liquids do get on the hob,
they should be removed as soon as
possible to avoid the risk of corrosion.
~ If the gas hob is installed behind a
kitchen furniture door, it may only be
used with the furniture door open.
Do not close the door whilst the hob is
in use or whilst there is any residual
heat left in the appliance.
~ If the gas hob has not been used for
a longer period of time it should be
thoroughly cleaned before it is used
again. It is also advisable to have the
appliance tested for safety.

Miele cannot be held liable for
damage caused by non-compliance
with these Warning and Safety
instructions.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and should be recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
17
Before using for the first time
Please stick the extra data plate for the appliance supplied
with this documentation in the space provided in the "After
sales service" section of this booklet.
Cleaning for the first time
^ Remove any protective foil and stickers.
^ Clean all removable parts of the burners with a solution of
warm water and a little washing-up liquid applied with a
soft sponge. Dry all parts thoroughly after cleaning and
then reassemble the burners (see "Cleaning and care").
^ Clean the stainless steel trough with a damp cloth, and
then wipe dry.
Metal components have a protective coating which may
give off a slight smell when heated up for the first time.
The smell and any vapours will dissipate after a short time,
and do not indicate a faulty connection or appliance.
18
Operation
Rapid ignition system
The appliance is supplied with a rapid ignition system with
the following features:
– After the flame is ignited, the hob control can be released
immediately.
– Automatic re-ignition.
Should the flame be extinguished. e. g. by a gust of air, the
burner will re-ignite automatically.
If re-ignition is unsuccessful, the gas supply will be cut off
automatically (see "Safety switch-off").
Controls
The controls are used to switch on the burners and regulate
the strength of the flame.

19
Operation
Switching on
When using the gas hob an extractor hood or a ventilation
device must be used.
^ The control for the burner required must be pressed in and
turned anti-clockwise to the largest flame symbol to switch
on. The ignitor clicks, and the gas is lit.
When a control is operated, a spark is produced on all
cooking zones. This is not a fault.
If the burner does not ignite, turn the control to "ß". Ensure
that the room is well ventilated, and wait at least 1 minute
before trying again.
If the burner does not ignite the second time, turn the control
to "ß", and see "Problem solving guide".
When switching on, re-ignition sometimes occurs (1-2 clicks)
if the flame on the ignition safety device has gone out briefly,
or if the thermal element is not hot enough, e.g. following a
gust of air.
20
Operation
Regulating the flame
Regulate the flame so that it does not spread out beyond the
sides of the pan. As the outer part of the flame is much hotter
than the centre, the tips of the flames should stay beneath the
pan base. Flame tips which extend beyond the sides of the
pan merely warm up the air in the room and can also damage
pan handles and increase the danger of injury.
The burners can be regulated at any level between the
strongest and weakest flame. Exception: The wok burner
On the wok burner there is a stopper at the 6 o'clock position
to prevent you turning the control to the high or low setting

– Refer to the chart above and ensure that the pan diameter
falls within the minimum and maximum diameters given for
the burner you are using. A pan which is too small will be
unstable on the pan support. If the pan diameter is too
large, flames can spread out to the sides and damage or
burn the worktop, wall claddings or surrounding units and
also parts of the hob. The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for this type of damage.
– Remember when purchasing new pans that manufacturers
usually refer to the diameter at the top of the pan in their
documentation.
– Any heat-resistant pans can be used.
– Pans with thick bases are preferable as these distribute
heat more evenly. With thin bases, there is a danger of
food overheating in places. Stir the food frequently.
– The pan support supplied with the appliance must always
be used. Never place a pan on the burner itself.
– Place pans securely on the pan rest to minimise the risk of
tipping.
– Do not use pots or pans with convex bases.
22
Pans
Wok ring
Woks have a small base diameter and large top diameter,
generally between 35 - 40 cm.
Use the wok ring supplied to give additional stability,
especially to woks with a rounded base.
Make sure that the wok ring is fitted securely in the correct
position. See illustration.
Combi insert
The combi insert must be used if you wish to use
– a pan with a smaller diameter base than the minimum
given in the table. The combi insert ensures that the pan
will sit securely on the hob, and cannot tip up.
– a large pan. The combi insert will prevent damage to the
worktop, and the stainless steel trough from becoming
discoloured. Refer to the information given in the table.
23
Energy saving tips
– Use a pan lid whenever possible to minimise heat loss.
– Cook with as little water as possible.
– Cooking times are greatly reduced when using a pressure
cooker.
– Turn the flame down promptly to a lower setting when the
pan has come to the boil.
– Wide, shallow pans are preferable to tall, narrow ones.
They will heat up faster.

Cleaning and care
General notes
Miele offer a range of branded cleaning and conditioning
products. See "Optional accessories".
,Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this
appliance. The steam could reach electrical components
and cause a short circuit.
The appliance should be cleaned regularly, preferably after
each use. Let it cool down to room temperature before
cleaning.
To avoid water marks and limescale deposits, use a soft cloth
to dry surfaces that have been cleaned with water.
Thoroughly remove salty food residues or liquids from the
hob as soon as possible to avoid the risk of corrosion.
To avoid damaging the surface of your appliance, do not
use:
– cleaning agents containing soda, alkalines, ammonia,
acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing descaling agents,
– stain or rust removers,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– grill and oven cleaners,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges, e.g. pot scourers,
brushes or sponges which have been previously used with
abrasive cleaning agents,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp pointed objects
(these can damage the seal between the frame and the
worktop)
26
Cleaning and care
Stainless steel surfaces
Clean stainless steel surfaces using an E-Cloth (see "Optional
accessories") or with a solution of warm water and a little
washing-up liquid applied with a soft sponge. In the case of
stubborn dried-on soiling, soak first.
Finally, dry with a soft cloth.
Miele ceramic and stainless steel hob cleaning agent can be
used when required (see "Optional accessories"). Apply with
an even pressure following the direction of the "grain".
To help prevent re-soiling we recommend using the
conditioning agent for stainless steel after cleaning (see
"Optional accessories").
Apply sparingly with a soft cloth follow the instructions on the
packaging.
Printed surfaces (flame symbols)
Remove any soiling which comes into contact with the
printed flame symbols straight away. Soiling, particularly
salty food or liquid can cause damage if left on the printed
surfaces for a long time.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning agents on the printed
flame symbols. This would rub off the print.
Pan supports, control knobs
Do not clean the pan supports in a dishwasher.
Remove the pan supports. Clean the pan supports and the
control knobs with a solution of warm water and a little
washing-up liquid applied with a soft sponge. Stubborn
soiling should be soaked first.
Finally dry all parts with a clean cloth.
27
Cleaning and care
Burners
Do not clean any parts of the burners in a dishwasher.
The burners should be dismantled and then cleaned by hand
using a solution of warm water and a little washing-up liquid
applied with a soft sponge.
Parts of the burner that cannot be removed should be wiped
clean with a damp cloth only.
The ignitor and ignition safety device should be very carefully
wiped clean using a well wrung out cloth.
Do not let the ignitor get wet. If it gets wet it will not spark.
After cleaning, dry all surfaces with a clean cloth.
Make sure that the flame slits are clean and completely dry.
The surface of the different parts of the burner will
gradually become more matt with time. This is quite normal
and will not affect the operation of the hob.
