8
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Technical safety
 Installation, repair and maintenance work should be performed by
a Miele authorized service technician in accordance with national
and local safety regulations and the provided installation
instructions. Contact Miele’s Technical Service Department for
examination, repair or adjustment. Repairs and other work by
unauthorized persons could be dangerous and may void the
warranty.
 Do not carry or lift the range by the oven door handle or the
control panel!
 Maintenance by the user: Never repair or replace any part of the
appliance unless the instructions specifically recommend doing so.
Service work may only be performed by a qualified technician.
 A damaged cooktop can be dangerous. Always check for visible
signs of damage. Never use a damaged appliance.
 Reliable and safe operation of the cooktop can only be
guaranteed if it is connected to the public power supply.
 The electrical safety of the range can only be guaranteed when it
is properly grounded. Compliance with this essential safety
requirement is absolutely mandatory. If in any doubt, please have
the building's wiring system inspected by a qualified electrician.
 Proper installation: Make sure that your appliance has been
installed correctly and that it has been grounded by a qualified
technician.
 For safety reasons, the cooktop may only be used when it has
been fully installed.
 To avoid damaging the range, make sure that the connection data
(voltage and frequency) on the data plate correspond to the
building's power supply before connecting the appliance.
When in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
9
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Installation and maintenance of the gas connection must be
performed by qualified installers, service agencies or gas providers.
 Do not use a power strip or extension cord to connect the range
to electricity. These are a fire hazard and do not guarantee the
required level of appliance safety.
 This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
 Any contact with live connections or tampering with the electrical
or mechanical components of the cooktop will endanger your safety
and may lead to appliance malfunctions.
Do not open the casing of the cooktop under any circumstances.
 Any repairs not performed by a Miele authorized service
technician will void the warranty.
 Defective components should be replaced by Miele original parts
only. Only with these parts can the manufacturer guarantee the
safety of the appliance.
 During installation, maintenance and repair work, e.g. if the oven
lighting is broken (see "Frequently asked questions"), the range must
be completely disconnected from the household electricity supply.
The gas supply must be shut off. Ensure that this is the case by:
– removing the fuse,
– "tripping" the circuit breaker, or
– unplugging the unit. Pull the plug not the cord.
– Shut off the gas supply and, if necessary, disconnect the range
from the gas line. Installation and maintenance of the gas
connection must be performed by qualified installers, service
agencies or gas providers.
 Risk of electric shock!
If the cooktop is defective, immediately turn the appliance off and
discontinue use. Disconnect the range from the gas and power
supply and contact Miele.
10
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 If the range is installed behind a cabinet door, do not close the
door while the appliance is in operation. Heat and moisture can build
up behind the closed door and cause damage to the range and to
the surrounding cabinets and flooring. Do not close the door until
the appliance has completely cooled down.
 Do not install kitchen cabinets above the range, since reaching
over a hot stovetop to access the cabinets can result in burns. If it is
necessary to install cabinets, you can reduce the risk of burns by
installing a range hood that extends at least 4 3/4" (12 cm) past the
bottom of the cabinets.
11
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Proper use
 Do not leave the cooktop unattended when cooking on high
power. Spilled food will begin to smoke and cause grease splatter,
which can ignite on the cooktop.
 Oil and fat can catch fire if overheated. Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil and fat. If the oil or fat catches
fire, do not attempt to put the flames out with water.
Turn off the cooktop and smother the flames using a lid or a suitable
fire blanket.
 Smother the fire or flames, or use a dry chemical extinguishing
agent or foam fire extinguisher.
 Never store flammable liquids and materials in, above or under an
oven, or near cooking surfaces.
 The flames could set the grease filters of a cooker hood on fire.
Do not flambé under a cooker hood.
 Never heat empty cookware.
 Do not heat or can food in closed containers, such as tins or
sealed jars, on the cooktop, as pressure will build up in the container
and cause it to explode.
 If the cooktop is covered, there is a risk that the material of the
cover will ignite, explode or melt if the range is still hot or if turned on
inadvertently. Never cover the cooktop with a board, cloth or
protective sheet.
 When using an electrical appliance, e.g. a hand mixer, near the
cooktop, make sure that the power cable does not come into
contact with the hot cooktop. The cable's insulation could become
damaged.
 Cookware made of plastic or aluminum foil will melt at high
temperatures. Do not use any plastic or aluminum foil cookware.
12
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 The cooktop gets hot when in use and remains hot for some time
after being turned off. Do not touch the appliance if there is a
possibility that it could still be hot.
 You can burn yourself on a hot cooktop. When cooking on the
appliance, protect your hands by using heat-resistant pot holders or
oven mitts. Only use dry pot holders or gloves. Wet or damp textiles
conduct heat more effectively and produce steam, which poses a
burn hazard. Be sure to keep all textiles away from the gas flames.
Do not use oversized cloths, dish towels or other similar materials.
 If the cooktop is accidentally turned on or is still hot, metal
objects on the appliance can heat up. Other items may melt or catch
fire. Do not place unused items on the cooktop for storage!
 A range hood installed above the cooktop can become damaged
or catch fire as a result of intense heat. Do not use the gas burners
without cookware.
 When in use, the cooktop emits a significant amount of heat,
which can cause objects in the vicinity to catch fire.
Never use the cooktop to heat the room.
 Only light the gas burners after all burner parts have been
properly assembled.
 If the cookware is too small, it will not sit properly on the burner
grate. If the cookware is too large, heat emitted from the bottom of
the cookware may damage the countertop, walls with poor heatresistance (e.g. paneled walls) or portions of the cooktop.
 Make sure that the burner flames do not extend beyond the
bottom of the cookware and rise up its sides.
 Only use cookware with a thick enough bottom. Failure to do so
may result in damage to the cooktop.
 Always use the burner grates supplied with the cooktop. Never
place cookware directly on the burner.
13
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Remove all grease splatters and other flammable (food) residues
on the cooktop. They are a fire hazard.
 Install the burner grates in an upright position to avoid scratching
the cooktop.
 Do not use roasting dishes, pans, or grilling stones that are large
enough to cover several burners. The resulting heat buildup can
damage the appliance.
 If the cooktop has not been used for a long period of time, be
sure to thoroughly clean it and have it inspected by an authorized
technician before using it again.
 The use of the cooktop creates heat, moisture and combustion
products in the room where it is installed. Make sure that the
appliance is installed in location with sufficient ventilation. Natural
ventilation openings should not be blocked. Alternatively, a
mechanical ventilation device (e.g. a range hood) can be installed.
 Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may require additional
ventilation of the room, e.g., by opening a window, or by turning the
range hood to a higher setting.
 Ask your installer to show you the location of your gas shutoff
valve and fuses or circuit breaker panel in your apartment or home.
Be sure that you know how and where to disconnect the gas and
power supply to your cooktop.
 Ensure that the igniters are clean and dry to allow the burners to
ignite and burn properly.
 Fire hazard! Loose-fitting or hanging garments can catch fire. Be
sure to wear appropriately fitting clothing when cooking. Never allow
loose clothing or flammable materials to come into contact with the
burners while the burners are in use.
 When you have finished cooking, make sure that the burners and
oven are turned off by checking the position of the knobs.
14
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 The grates, burner cap, bottom parts of the burner, and any other
parts located near the burner flame, can still be very hot after
cooking and cause burns. Do not touch these components when
using the cooktop.
 Wind can blow curtains over the cooktop, causing them to catch
fire. If the cooktop is installed near a window, do not use long
curtains.
 Only certain types of glass, ceramic or other enamel cookware
can be used on a gas cooktop without breaking as a result of
sudden temperature changes.
 Wet sponges or clothes can cause burns due to hot steam if they
are used to wipe spilled food off a hot burner. Some cleansers can
emit hazardous vapors if they are applied to a hot surface. Be
careful when cleaning the cooktop.
Cleaning and care
 Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the cooktop.
The steam may reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.

Cooktop safety feature
Automatic re-ignition
Your gas cooktop is equipped with an
automatic re-ignition function. If the
flame goes out, e.g. because food has
cooked over or there has been an air
draft, the flame is automatically reignited.
39
Before using for the first time
Cleaning the cooktop for the
first time
 Remove any protective foil and
stickers.
 Using a soft sponge, clean all
removable burner parts with a
solution of warm water and a small
amount of liquid dish soap. Dry the
parts thoroughly after cleaning and
reassemble the burners (see
"Cleaning and care").
 Remove the grilling grate and, using a
soft sponge, clean it with a solution
of warm water and a small amount of
dishwashing liquid. Dry it thoroughly
after cleaning.
 The griddle plate is oiled for
protection against corrosion. Clean
the griddle plate with a soft sponge, a
small amount of dishwashing liquid,
and warm water, and dry it.
 Before first use, wipe down the
appliance with a damp cloth and dry
it.
Metal components are protected by a
conditioning agent. Smells and vapor
may occur when the appliance is used
for the first time.
The smell and any vapors do not
indicate a faulty connection or a
defective appliance and are not harmful
to your health.
"Burning in" the griddle plate
You must "burn in" the griddle plate
before cooking food on it the first
time. This process prevents food from
sticking and protects the surface from
moisture.
 Set the griddle plate on "High" for 30
minutes.
 Switch off the griddle plate after 30
minutes and let it cool down.
During heating, the griddle plate
constantly changes color. The
discoloration may become more
intensive over time. The properties of
the griddle plate, however, are not
impaired in this manner.
 Pour 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil that
can be heated to a high temperature
in the middle of the cooled griddle
plate and distribute it with a paper
towel, leaving out the corners of the
plate.
Do not use too much oil. Excess oil
leaves a rubbery substance on the
plate that has to be removed.
 Remove any excess oil with a paper
towel.
 Heat the griddle plate on "High" until
it starts to smoke.
 Switch off the griddle plate.
 When the griddle plate had cooled
down to a hand-warm temperature,
wash off the excess oil.
 Repeat the process once the griddle
plate has cooled down completely.

 Fire hazard!
Do not leave the appliance
unattended while cooking!
Turning on
Do not turn the control knob
clockwise past the "Off" position.
Activating a control knob
automatically produces a spark on all
of the burners. This is normal and
does not indicate a fault.
You may notice a brief re-ignition
(1-2 clicks) when turning on the
appliance, e.g. because of a draft.
 To ignite a burner, push the
appropriate control knob and turn it
counterclockwise to the "High"
position. The ignitor "clicks" and
ignites the gas.
 If the burner fails to light, turn the
control knob to the "Off" position.
Vent the room or wait at least 1
minute before trying again.
 If the second attempt also fails to
light the burner, turn the control knob
to the "Off" position and refer to the
"Frequently asked questions"
section.
Switching on during a power
outage
 If there has been a power failure,
the automatic re-ignition feature will
not work properly.
Operate the cooktop only under
supervision. If the burner has not
ignited or the flame goes out, turn off
the burner knob.
Standard and power burners
In case of a power failure, the flame
can be ignited manually.
 Press in the burner knob and turn it
counterclockwise to "High."
 Light the emerging gas/air mixture
with a match.
Grill
 Danger of injury due to the
manual ignition of the flat burner
during a power failure!
Never operate the grill during a
power failure.
 Turn off the grill control knob.
Griddle plate
The griddle plate cannot be operated
in case of a power failure.
 Turn off the control knob for the
griddle plate.
Adjusting the flame
The burners can be variably adjusted
between the lowest and highest flame
settings.
41
Operating the cooktop
Because the edges of the flame are
much hotter than its center, the flame
tips should stay beneath the bottom
of the cookware. Flame tips which
extend beyond the sides of the
cookware emit unnecessary heat into
the room and can also damage
cookware handles, which increases
the risk of injury.
 Adjust the flame so that it never
extends up the sides of the
cookware.
Turning off
Do not turn the control knob
clockwise past the "Off" position.
 Turn the control knob to the right until
it reaches the "Off" position.
This stops the flow of gas, and the
flame goes out.

Cookware
– Select cookware that fits the size of
the burner:
Large diameter = large burner
Small diameter = small burner
– Position the cookware on the burner
grate so that it cannot tip. There is
always a possibility of a slight tilt,
despite the proper position.
– Using cookware that is too large can
cause the flames to spread out and
damage the surrounding countertop
or other appliances. Choosing the
right cookware size improves
efficiency.
– Do not use pots or pans that have
bottoms with pronounced edges.
– Any cookware that has a diameter
smaller than the burner grate or
which does not rest in a stable
position on the grate (without
wobbling) is dangerous and should
not be used.
– Unlike cookware that is used on an
electric cooktop, the bottom of
cookware used on a gas cooktop
does not have to be flat to deliver
effective cooking performance.
– When purchasing pots and pans,
keep in mind that the diameter
indicated is typically the top
diameter, not the bottom diameter.
– All heat-resistant cookware is
suitable for use on the gas cooktop.
– Cookware with a thick bottom is
preferable, as it distributes heat more
evenly. Cookware with a thin bottom
may cause food to overheat in certain
spots. To avoid this, stir the food
frequently.
– Always place cookware on the burner
grate supplied with the cooktop.
Never place it directly on the burner.
44
Energy saving tips
– Whenever possible, keep pots and
pans covered while cooking. Doing
so will prevent unnecessary heat
loss.
– Wide, shallow cookware heats up
faster and is therefore preferable to
tall, narrow cookware.
– Cook with as little water as possible.
– Reduce the power setting once the
water has come to a boil or the oil/fat
is hot enough for frying.
– Use a pressure cooker to reduce the
cooking time.
45
Operating the grill
The grill has a ceramic burner that
transfers intense heat to food, searing
the outside to seal the juices. Full
flexibility, depending on the food, from
"Low" to "High" as power settings.
Grilling tips
Turning on the grill
– Pat down wet food items with paper
towel to prevent splatters during
broiling.
 Press the control knob of the grill and
turn it counterclockwise to "High."
 If the burner fails to light, turn the
control knob to the "Off" position. Air
the room or wait at least 1 minute
before trying again.
 If the second attempt also fails to
light the burner, turn the control knob
to the "Off" position and refer to the
"Frequently asked questions"
section.
 Pre-heat the grill with the
dishwasher-safe grill grate in place
for approx. 20 minutes.
 Set the desired power level.
46
 Fire hazard!
Do not leave the appliance
unattended while cooking!
– Do not salt meat until after broiling, or
it will be too dry.
– Select lean mean or cut off fat before
broiling. Dripping fat can catch on
fire.
– If dripping fat catches on fire, use
grilling tongs to move the meat to
another spot or remove it entirely.
– Remove chicken skin to prevent
sparking.
– Halfway through cooking, brush
marinade onto the food.
– Leave the grill on for another 10
minutes after you have finished. In
this way, it is easier to clean after
cooling.
Operation of the griddle
The griddle is thermostatically
controlled to maintain a consistent
temperature. To prevent food from
sticking, it is necessary to "season" the
griddle prior to use (see "Before using
for the first time"). Full flexibility,
depending on the food, from "Low",
"Medium" and "High" as power
settings.

Operation of the griddle
Tips for frying
Before each use, wipe the griddle
with a damp cloth to remove dust or
other residue.
– Pre-heat the griddle plate thoroughly
for 8 -10 minutes at the power level
that you are going to be using for
cooking.
– Pat down wet food items with paper
towel to prevent splatters during
grilling.
– Do not salt meat until after grilling, or
it will be too dry.
– For cooking with the griddle plate,
you need only a little fat or none in
the case of marinated food. If you
use cooking fat, do not put it on the
griddle plate until it is hot.
– Only use fats/oils that can tolerate
high temperatures.
– Marinating often improves the flavor
of food to be cooked.
