Environmental protection
Induction cooking
Unpack the appliance and dispose of the packaging in
an environmentally-responsible manner.
Advantages
Environmentally-responsible
disposal
This appliance is labelled in accordance with
European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste
Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).
The directive provides a framework for the
collection and recycling of old appliances,
which is valid across the EU.
Tips for saving energy
▯
Use pots and pans with even bases. Using
cookware with uneven bases increases energy
consumption.
▯
Use a small pan for small quantities of food. A
larger, less full saucepan requires more energy.
▯
Always cover pans with a closely fitting lid.
Cooking without the lid requires four times as
much energy.
▯
Use only a little water when cooking. This saves
energy. It also preserves vitamins and minerals in
vegetables.
▯
Switch to a lower power level in good time.
6
With induction cooking, the heat is generated directly
in the pan base. This has many advantages:
▯
Time saved when cooking and roasting. The
cookware is heated up directly.
▯
Energy-saving.
▯
Easier care and cleaning. Food which has
overflowed does not burn on as quickly.
▯
Controlled heat supply and safety. The
induction generates or interrupts the heat supply
immediately after each use. The heating is
interrupted when you remove the cookware from
the cooking position, even if the cooking position
is still switched on.
Cookware
Getting to know your appliance
Suitable cookware
Only use ferromagnetic cookware made of enamelled
steel, cast iron or special induction cookware made of
rust-free stainless steel.
Unsuitable cookware
Never use cookware made of conventional steel,glass,
ceramic, copper or aluminium.
Checking the cookware
Cooktop
The cooktop has full area induction. You can place the
cookware anywhere on the entire usable cooking
surface. The position, size and shape of the cookware
used is automatically detected.
Note: Only 2 cooking positions may be used at the
same time on each side of the cooktop.
8VDEOHFRRNLQJVXUIDFH
Your cookware is suitable if the pan base can attract a
magnet. Saucepan manufacturers usually indicate
cookware that is suitable for induction cooking.
Cookware base
The properties of the cookware base can influence
the cooking result. The material of the cookware base
should distribute the heat evenly. A sandwich base of
stainless steel is a good example.
Empty cooking containers or cookware with a thin
base
ã
0DLQVZLWFK
7RXFKGLVSOD\
Risk of burning!
Do not heat up any empty cooking containers or
cookware with a thin base. An empty cooking
container can heat up so quickly that the safety shutdown is not activated on time and a high temperature
can be reached. The base of the container could melt
and damage the glass ceramic of the cooktop. Do not
touch the hot cooking container and switch the
cooking position off. If the cooktop does not work
after the cooking position has cooled down, contact
the after-sales service.
Pot detection
The position, size and shape of the cookware used is
automatically detected by the cooktop. Sizes with a
diameter of 90 to 340 mm are suitable.
Note: The cooking position indicators may differ from
the actual size and shape of the cookware. This is
normal and does not adversely affect the correct
operation of the cooktop.

Tips
Problem
Remedy
The size or shape of the cookware is not displayed
correctly on the Touch display.
Differences in how the cookware is shown on the display are normal
and do not adversely affect the correct operation of the hob (particularly small cookware is shown as a round hotplate).
Two hotplates that are quite close to each other may be displayed as
one hotplate. Redistribute the cookware.
The hotplate power level cannot be increased.
Never place the cookware outside of the usable cooking surface.
The overall output of the hob has been limited. Adjust the overall output under “Power management” in the Options menu.
Very large cookware may affect the maximum power level of other hotplates on the same half of the hob. Redistribute the cookware.
The booster function has been deactivated or cannot You can only activate the booster function once on the right and leftbe activated.
hand halves of the hob. If a second hotplate is switched on or is
already in operation, the booster function will not be available or is
deactivated and the hotplate returns to power level 9.0.
An audible signal sounds if there is an object on the
touch display.
The cookware is not detected.
The overall output of the hob has been limited. Adapt the overall output under “Power management” in the Options menu.
Remove the object and acknowledge the indicator on the display. You
can now reset the hob.
The cookware is outside the appropriate size. Sizes with a diameter of
90 to 340 mm are suitable.
There may be liquid under the cookware. Ensure that the base of the
cookware is dry.
The hob switches off automatically
20
The cookware may not be suitable for induction cooking.
If no hotplate is in operation on the hob and you do not change the
settings for a prolonged period of time, the hob will automatically
switch off.
Problem
Remedy
The hotplate cannot be adjusted.
Only 2 hotplates can be in operation on each side of the hob.
An item of cookware in the centre of the hob occupies one hotplate
on each side of the hob. You can only set one other hotplate for each
side of the hob.
The hotplate settings are not transferred when the
cookware is moved.
The hob responds unusually or can no longer be
operated correctly.
The cookware may not be suitable for induction cooking.
Move the cooking container more slowly over the hob or use the transfer function.
Disconnect the appliance from the power supply. Wait a few seconds
and reconnect it.
Demo mode
If the ° symbol appears in the display, the demo
mode is activated. The appliance does not heat up.
Disconnect the appliance from the power supply. Wait
a few seconds and reconnect it. Then switch off the
Demo mode in the Options menu within the first 3
minutes.
Normal operating noise of the
cooktop
Induction technology is based on the generation of
electromagnetic fields. These allow heat to be
generated directly on the base of the cookware. Pots
or pans can cause different noises or vibrations
depending on the manufacturing method. These
noises are described as follows:
Info button
Deep buzzing (as from a transformer)
With the Info button, you can request important
additional information on the function currently being
used. To call up the information, touch the †display
area. The information appears. To close the
Information, touch the G display area.
This noise occurs when cooking on higher power
levels. It is due to the volume of energy transferred
from the cooktop to the cookware. The noise stops or
reduces when the power level is reduced.

VOLGH\RXUILQJHUXSRUGRZQ
Low whistling
This noise occurs if the cooking container is empty. It
stops when water or food is placed in the container.
Crackling
This noise occurs with cookware made of different
multilayer materials. It occurs because of vibrations at
the areas at which the different materials contact each
other. The noise occurs on the cookware and can vary
according to the volume and preparation method of
the food.
Loud whistling
This noise occurs for cookware made of different
multilayer materials if they are also used on the
maximum power level and on two cooking positions at
the same time. The noise stops or reduces when the
power level is reduced.
Fan noises
For correct operation of the electronic system, the
cooktop temperature must be regulated. To do this,
the cooktop is equipped with a cooling fan which is
operated to reduce and regulate the temperature of
the electronic system. The fan can also continue to
run when the appliance is switched off, if the
temperature measured after switching the cooktop off
is still too hot.
The above-mentioned noises are a normal part of
induction technology and should not be considered as
a defect.
