Congratulations from AEG
Dear Customer,
Congratulations with your new Hob.
It is important that you become familiar with the functions and features of
the Hob. You should therefore read these operating instructions as they will
help you get the most out of your new Hob.
Pay extra attention to sections marked
. These are warning texts to help
you avoid accidents.
Keep the operating instructions. They will come in handy if there is
something you are not sure about, and should accompany the Hob if it is
transferred to a new owner.
The structure of the operating instructions enables you to use them as a
reference manual. The first part of the operating instructions contains a
general description of your new product. Then follows a short introduction
of the things to do before you use the Hob for the first time. The section
“How to use” describes how the Hob is used in everyday life. Use this
section until you are familiar with your new Hob. The section “Cleaning
and Maintenance” provides information on both daily and more thorough
cleaning of the individual components of the Hob. Should problems arise
when you use the Hob, you can look in the section “Before calling service”,
where there are instructions on how to remedy some practical and technical
problems yourself.
Enjoy!
Regards,

means that you do not have to
adjust the heat constantly. CHEC
control provides the zones with the
following functions:
Ceramic glass surface
The ceramic glass surface has four
cooking zones. When a zone is
turned on, it will illuminate at
various intervals depending on the
heat setting selected. Even at the
highest setting the zone is
disconnected occasionally to ensure
that the surface is not over-heated.
The glass is hard, and has been
tempered to withstand heat, cold
and temperature shocks. But like all
glass it is sensitive to impact. Do
not stand on the ceramic glass
surface.
At the front of the ceramic
glasssurface in the middle there are
four fields. Each field corresponds
to a cooking zone. When using a
zone, the field concerned will show
which CHEC function you are
using and the setting at which you
have set the zone.
Automatic disconnection of
“forgotten” zones.
AUTOMAX at all settings.
Setting of large zone on
double zones.
Child safety device on zones.
Residual heat indicator
When you switch off a zone, an
"H" in the display indicates that the
zone is still hot. The residual heat
indicator will continue to be
illuminated until the zone reaches a
temperature of approx. 80˚C.
Cooking zones
There are two single zones and two
double zones.
CHEC control
Information about how to use the
CHEC control function can be
found in the section entitled

Advice and hints for using the
cooking zones
If you use the advice below
you will save energy and
make your cleaning tasks
easier.
Saucepans with very
shiny/bright bases will
prolong the cooking time
slightly compared with
cooking utensils with
matt/dark bases.
Adjust the cooking zones
correctly. Select the highest setting
for the cooking zones until the food is
brought to the boil. Then reduce the
setting as far as possible, without the
food going off the boil.
Use a tightly fitting lid on the
saucepan. Without a lid you
use more than three times as
much electricity.
Use level saucepans. An
uneven saucepan may
increase the electricity
consumption by up to 50 per
cent. Check whether your
saucepans have level bases
by placing the item in question
upside down on a work top and
positioning a ruler on the base.
A curved base, both inwards and
outwards, will prolong the
cooking time and increase the
energy consumption
The saucepan should match
the cooking zone – or be
slightly larger. Remember
that a large saucepan can also
hold small quantities. If the
diameter of the base is too small,
the energy consumption will
increase, and any food boiling
15
Do not slide saucepans across the
surface of the hob - always lift the pan
when placing it on, or removing it
from the ceramic surface.
Wipe the bottom surface of the pots
and pans with a clean dry cloth before
placing them on the ceramic surface.
This helps to reduce cleaning and
prevents scratching the hob glass.
Wipe off spills whilst the hob is warm.
Select the highest setting for the
cooking zones until the food is brought
to the boil, then reduce the setting.
Use saucepans with an even base. An
uneven based saucepan may increase
the electricity consumption by up to
50%.
The saucepan should match the
cooking zone or be slightly larger.
Use a tightly fitting lid on the saucepan
to reduce electricity consumption.
16
Cleaning and maintenance of
For reasons of hygiene and
safety, the cooking zones
must be kept clean. Grease
stains and spilled food
generate smoke when heated,
and can even cause fire.
The splashguard can be removed to
make it easier to clean the surface.
What to do:
1. Hold the splashguard as shown
in the diagram.
2. Lift the splashguard straight up
3. Clean the top surface as
described in “cleaning the steel
surface”.
Be aware of the two retaining
pegs, which are sharp.
4. Replace the splashguard in
position ENSURE that it is
fitted the correct way round.
Never use hard or sharp
implements to lift off the
splashguard.
Do not wash the splashguard
in a dishwasher.
The hob must not be used
with the splashguard off.
17
Stainless steel surfaces
Clean the appliance after use with a
soft cloth well wrung out in warm
water, use a small amount of liquid
detergent for stubborn soiling.
Stainless steel parts may become straw
coloured with use, use a proprietary
stainless steel cleaner to remove this
straw discolouration.
Never use metal wool, metal sponges
or other abrasive cleaning agents.
The ceramic glass hob
3. Wipe the ceramic hob clean with
a damp cloth or kitchen roll.
Tough stains can be removed by
rubbing the stain hard with
kitchen roll.
4. Wipe off remaining cleaning
agent with a damp cloth.
5. Wipe with a dry cloth, if
required.
Make sure that the ceramic hob is dry
when you heat it up again. Ceramic
hobs can develop rainbow-like stripes
if heated while damp.
Immediately scrape off stains caused
by food which has boiled over using
the scraper supplied with the hob,
spilled sugar, dishes containing sugar
(jam, juice, etc.), melted plastic and
aluminium foil while the ceramic hob
is still hot. If the ceramic hob is
allowed to cool it may become
damaged. A dirty ceramic hob
decreases the heat transfer between
cooking zones and cookware.
After use the cooking zones should be
wiped with a damp cloth with washing
up liquid. For severe soiling you can
follow these steps:
1. Remove stains etc., with the
ceramic hob scraper.
2. Make sure that the ceramic hob
has cooled down. Use a ceramic
cleaning agent, such as vitroclen.
18
The decorative pattern on the ceramic
surface can become scratched and
marred with use, depending upon
maintenance, but does not adversely
affect performance.
Such blemishes are not covered by the
warranty and do not affect the
operation of the hob.
Spills and melts must be removed
immediately, while the surface is still
warm, using the scraper supplied with
the unit. Especially damaging are melted
plastic, aluminum, or any foodstuff
containing sugar, including natural sugar,
as these can create permanent
“pockmarks” and craters on the ceramic
surface. After scraping polish thoroughly
with the cleaning agent supplied with the
unit.
Utensils which have been in contact with
the above-mentioned melted materials
must be cleaned throughly before used
again on the ceramic-top hob unit.
Defects in the ceramic surface which can
be related to the above are not covered
by the warranty.
Warning:
Aluminum foil and plastic utensils are
not to be placed on hot surfaces.
The surface may not be used for storage.
Do not stare at the heating units when
in operation.

Service
Before calling service – Technical advice
Sympton
Solution
The hob is not working
Check your earth leak circuit breaker.
Check fuses.
The hob becomes hot
The ceramic hob will reach a
temperature of 80˚C. It may, however,
become even hotter if you use cooking
utensils with uneven bases or which
does not match the size of the cooking
zone.
The fuses keep blowing
Too many electrical appliances may be
in use at the same time. If the hob is
connected to a 10 Amp fuse group, the
risk of overloading will be
considerable.
The cooking zones do not heat
sufficiently
The cooking utensils must match the
size of the cooking zone. Check that
the cooking utensils have level bases
by holding them against the edge of the
work top, for example. Bring a litre of
water to the boil in a saucepan with a
lid. The cooking zone should be
adjusted to the highest setting.
The boiling time on the 12 cm cooking
zone is approx. 25 min.
The boiling time on the 14 cm cooking
zone is approx. 13 min.
The boiling time on the 18 cm cooking
zone is approx. 10 min.

Deep fat frying
For safety purposes, when deep fat
frying, fill the pan 1/3 full of oil. Do
not cover the pan with a lid and do
not leave the pan unattended.
In the event of a fire, switch off at the
electricity supply and cover the pan
with a lid or damp cloth to assist in
smothering the flames.
Do not use water on the fire. Leave the
pan to cool for at least 30 minutes
before moving it.
4. Cooking the food
Lower the food gently into the oil. Do
not add too much food at once or the
temperature of the oil will be reduced
and may result in soggy, greasy food.
Turn the food if necessary, doughnuts
float to the surface so they will not
brown on the upper side if not turned.
Once cooked, drain the food on
absorbent paper.

1. Preparing the food
Seal the food by coating with flour,
egg and bread crumbs or batter. Do not
use a basket with batter coated foods
as they will stick.
2. Quantity of oil
For safety purposes, fill the pan only
1/3 full of oil.
Preserving
1. Pan size
Do not use a pan that overlaps the
perimeter of the hob trim.
2. Filling the pan
To allow for a full rolling boil, the pan
should be no more than 1/3 full when
all the ingredients have been added.
3. Testing the temperature of the oil
It is advisable to use a thermometer to
test the temperature of the oil.
Alternatively, drop a small cube of
bread into oil which should brown in
just under a minute if the oil is at the
correct temperature, or 190˚C.
26
It is better to use two pans rather than
overfill one, or use half quantities.
3. What to use
Use firm fruit or vegetables and wash
well before using.
4. Types of sugar
Preserving sugar gives clear jam,
however granulated sugar is cheaper
and gives equally good flavour.
5. Crystallization
Crystallization may be caused if sugar
is not completely dissolved before
bringing the jam to the boil. Over
boiling will affect the flavour, setting
properties and colour of the jam.
6. To test jam for setting.
If a jam thermometer is available, boil
the jam to 140˚C. Marmalade should be
boiled to 106˚C.
If no thermometer is available, remove
the pan from the heat, place a sample of
jam on a cold dish and cool quickly (i.e.
in a freezer or frozen food compartment
of a refrigerator). When cold, and if it is
ready, it should crinkle and hold the
mark of a finger run through it.
7.
The scum should be removed as soon as
possible after setting, but marmalade
should be allowed to cool before
decanting into jars to prevent the peel
rising.
