Warning and Safety Instructions
Warning and Safety Instructions
Warning:
When using your cooktop, follow
basic safety precautions including
the following:
Read all instructions before using
the cooktop.
Use the cooktop only for its intended use.
Be sure your appliance is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified technician.
Before servicing, disconnect the
power supply by removing the fuse
or turning off the circuit breaker.
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective
grounding system.
It is imperative that this basic safety requirement be met. If there is any doubt,
the electrical system of the house
should be checked by a qualified electrician. The manufacturer cannot be
held responsible for damage caused
by the lack or inadequacy of an effective grounding system.
Never use the cooktop to warm or
heat the room.
When using an electrical outlet
near the cooktop, make sure that
the cable of the appliance does not
come into contact with the burners.
"CAUTION": Do not store items of
interest to children behind or in
cabinets above the cooktop.– Children
climbing on the cooktop to reach items
could be seriously injured.
Do not allow children to operate or
play with or near the cooktop.
Store all play items away from the
cooktop to prevent injury to
curious or playful children.
Please remember that burners
become hot; therefore, ensure that
children do not touch them.
Do not store items on the cooktop
when not in use.
Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate
on the cooktop.
Never leave the cooktop unattended when cooking with oil or
fat. Very hot oil can cause a fire.
Allow sufficient time for the cooktop to cool before touching or exposing surface areas to flammable materials.
If cracks or crevices appear in the
cooktop, immediately turn off the
cooktop and contact the Miele Service
Department or your local service dealer.
If sugar (either solid or liquid) or
plastic melt onto the ceramic
surface, it is essential to follow the
cleaning instructions on Page 14.

Warning and Safety Instructions
Warning and Safety Instructions
Always cook pork thoroughly to ensure that, in the event of trichina,
all bacteria will be killed and the meat
is safe to eat.
For best results, utilize pots and
pans that are the same size as the
cooktop heating elements.
If high settings are used, be cautious of splattering grease or
liquids boiling over which may produce
smoke.
Use only dry potholders.
Use only cookware suitable for
range-top service. Unsuitable
cookware may break due to sudden
temperature changes.
Always position the handle of the
cookware toward the center of the
cooktop to minimize burns, spillage
and ignition of flammable materials.
Before removing pots and pans,
be sure to turn surface units to OFF.
Always heat fat slowly, monitoring
it as it heats.
When frying foods, make sure that
the food is as dry as possible to
prevent moisture from causing hot fat
to bubble over.
When shallow or deep-frying, do
not overfill the pan with oil.
6
Wear proper apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments should
never be worn while using the appliance.
Do not repair or replace any part of
the appliance unless specifically
recommended in the manual. All other
servicing should be refered to a qualified technician.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Smother the fire or use a dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Do not cook on a broken cooktop –
If the cooktop should break,
cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and
create a risk of electrical shock.
Contact the Miele Service Department
or your local Service dealer.
Clean the cooktop using caution –
If a wet sponge or cloth is used to
wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be
careful to avoid steam burns. Some
cleaners can produce toxic fumes if applied to a hot surface.
Under no circumstance use a
steam-cleaning appliance to clean
the cooktop.
The steam could penetrate to live components and cause a short circuit.

Before using for the first time
Read the “Warning and Safety instructions” before using for the first
time.
Thoroughly clean the ceramic cooktop
before using for the first time, and then
regularly after each use (see “Cleaning
and care”).
There may be a slight smell during the
initial use due to the drying effect of the
insulation material.

Cooktop controls
Cooktop controls
All cooking areas are controlled by variable control knobs. By using these control knobs, temperatures can be freely
selected.
The controls can be turned either clockwise or counterclockwise.
The indicator lamp for each cooking
area lights as soon as the respective
control knob is turned to a setting.
It goes out when the control knob is
turned to the “0” position.
A resistance is felt between settings 7
and 8 to indicate that a higher temperature range is being reached.
Correct procedure:
Place saucepan of food on cooking
area.
Select a high number for boiling or
sealing in juices.
Should a trace of steam become
visible on the edge of the lid, switch
to a lower number for continued
cooking.
Turning the temperature down at the
right time . . .
. . . prevents food from overcooking.
. . . prevents food from burning.
. . . saves energy.

Description of cooking areas
Description of cooking areas
Cooking areas - diameter
The cooking areas are clearly marked
on the cooktop unit. Only the area
which has been turned on will be
heated. The rest of the cooktop surface
will remain relatively cool.
Residual heat indicator
Each cooking area has a residual heat
indicator. When a cooking area is
turned on, its residual heat indicator
lights up. It only goes out after the cooking area has been turned off and the
cooking surface has reached a temperature safe to the touch.
The temperature limiter may also be activated when the utensils are suitable.
The reason for this could be light colored saucepan bases (heat reflection)
or poor transfer of heat from the saucepan base to the food.
Important note
While the cooking areas are heating
up, a “humming” noise may be noticed. This is caused by magnetization
of the heating filaments. As the cooking
areas heat up, the humming noise will
diminish and finally will cease altogether.
For halogen cooking areas only:
Temperature limiter
All cooking areas are equipped with a
temperature limiter, which turns the
heating element off if the temperature
under the ceramic surface gets too
high.
The radiant elements work together
with the halogen lamps. This gives a
quicker heat transfer to the pan base,
resulting in a shorter heating-up period.
The temperature limiter turns the heating element on again after the temperature has returned to a safe level.
The temperature limiter operates
. . . when unsuitable cooking utensils
are used (e.g. saucepans with uneven
bases or which are too small).
. . . when cooking areas are used without pots.
11
Operation
Operation
Saucepans
Saucepan size
The following notes are designed to enable you to
. . . make the best use of energy when
using your ceramic cooktop.
. . . prevent food from boiling over and
burning on to the ceramic cooktop.
Pots and pans are available which
have been specially tested for use on
glass ceramic cooktops.
The diameter of the saucepan should
be a little larger than that of the cooking
area.
Saucepan lids
Saucepan bases
So that optimum energy consumption
is achieved during cooking, only saucepans with bases as flat as possible, or
very slightly concave, should be used.
When the saucepan is hot, the base
should rest evenly on the ceramic surface.
Only use saucepans approved for
use on ceramic cooktops. Do not
use pots or pans having bases with
pronounced edges or ridges as
these could permanently scratch
the cooktop surface.
12
A lid on the saucepan will prevent heat
from being lost, and decrease the cooking time.
Operation
Operation
Note:
Do not use any pots or pans on the
ceramic cooktops having bases
with pronounced edges or ridges.
These could permanently scratch
the cooktop surface.
Place a saucepan on the cooking
area before turning on the appliance
to save energy.
The ceramic surface and the base of
the saucepan should be clean and
dry.
This saves unnecessary cleaning
after cooking and protects the cooking area.
Care should be taken that no granules (e. g. salt, sugar, etc.) are on
the cooktop when cooking.
If such granules should find their
way under a saucepan when it is
pushed across the cooktop, the
granules could scratch the surface.
When using aluminum or stainless
steel utensils, the metal can affect
the ceramic surface by leaving white
colored spots behind.
These spots can be removed most
easily if they are treated immediately
with a ceramic cooktop cleaner (see
chapter on “Cleaning and Care”).
Do not allow solid or liquid sugar, or
pieces of plastic or aluminum foil
onto the ceramic cooktop unit when
it is hot.
If this should occur do not turn the
appliance off. Scrape the remains
from the cooktop with a razor blade,
taking care not to burn yourself.
If it is allowed to cool before the
cooktop has been cleaned, the ceramic surface will be susceptible to
pitting or cracking.
Do not push enamelled baking
sheets, frying pans or saucepans
across the ceramic surface.
Scratches may occur.
13
Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
Ceramic cooktop
Generally you can use the same cleaning agents for the ceramic cooktop as
you would for ordinary glass surfaces.
Never use scouring agents or pads,
or strong cleaners such as oven
sprays or stain removers, as these
could harm the surface.
Clean after each use
Wipe off any minor spills with a damp
cloth.
If the cooktop is cleaned with a soap,
for example dishwashing liquid, light
blue staining may occur. These stains
can be removed with a ceramic cooktop cleaner, although they can be
stubborn and may take several applications.
Hardened spills should be carefully
scraped off with a razor blade. The
cooktop surface should then be
rubbed clean with a damp cloth.
Light marks with a metallic sheen
Aluminum deposits on the cooktop surface can be removed once the cooktop
has cooled down by using a ceramic
cooktop cleaner.
Lime deposits caused by water boiling
over, can be removed with vinegar or a
ceramic cooktop cleaner.
14
Removal of sugar, syrups, plastic or
aluminum foil
Do not turn off the cooking area!
Scrape off the residue thoroughly
from the hot cooktop with a razor
blade, taking care not to burn yourself. Then turn off the cooktop, and
when it is cool, clean with a ceramic
cooktop cleaner.
Suitable ceramic cooktop cleaners
There are special cleaners on the market for ceramic cooktops. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
If you have difficulty finding a suitable
ceramic cooktop cleaner, contact the
Miele Service Department for advice.
Do not apply to the cooktop when
still hot.
After applying the ceramic cooktop
cleaner let it dry and then rub it off
using a soft towel.
Always make sure that every trace of
cleaning agent has been removed, as it
could have an adverse effect on the
cooktop when turned on.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
Some cleaners incorporate a silicone
agent which acts as a protective film
for the ceramic cooktop.
It makes the cooktop surface smoother
and prevents water and food from adhering to the surface.
Cooking at high temperatures reduces
this effect and the cleaner may need to
be reapplied.
By cleaning your ceramic surface with
one of these agents, you will help avoid
damage caused by sugar, syrups and
aluminum foil deposits.
Control panel / Control knobs
Do not use any scouring agents or
pads on the knobs or control panel,
as these could cause damage.
Clean the cooktop controls and the control panel with hot water and a little dishwashing liquid.
After application, rub dry with a clean
cloth.
15
Correcting minor faults
Correcting minor faults
Repairs to electrical appliances
should only be carried out by a
trained person. Unauthorized repairs can be dangerous.
Some minor problems, however, can
be remedied as follows:
What to do if . . .
. . . a humming sound is heard while
the ceramic cooktop is heating up?
This is not a fault. As the cooking area
heats up, the humming disappears
completely.
. . . a resistance is felt between settings 7 and 8?
This is not a fault. The resistance is
there to indicate that a higher temperature range is being reached.
. . . the cooking area does not get hot
when turned on and the indicator
lamp does not light?
Check that the circuit breaker hasn’t
tripped.
If it has, call the Miele Service Department for assistance.
