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,

Tips on grilling
Use of the grill.
The numbers 1-12 are temperature
settings. From 1-11 the heating is
increased an regulated automatically.
On 12, full power is achieved and the
heating elements are glowing. This
step is suitable for heating up the grill
quickly and for cleaning the heating
elements. The table shows the
approximate adjustment steps for
different grill dishes.
approximately 5 minutes on step 12,
the meat will get heat from the water
and become juicy. When fat drips
down into the water it will cool off so
quickly that it cannot be ignited. Keep
an eye on the water and refill as
necessary.
NB!! Oil may be applied onto the meat
before it is laid on the grill.
Warning
NB!! The grid must always be used.
Grilling over lava blocks
Before starting the grilling, the grid is
lifted off and the heating elements
turned up. The box for the lava blocks
is put into place.
The lava block box shall always be
placed in the grill and the grill grid
placed on top before the grill unit is
switched on.
NB!! Preheat the grill elements for
about 5 minutes on step 12. This will
result in the meat getting heated from
the lava blocks as well.
Spices may be sprinkled directly on
the meat, or over the lava blocs in
order to give the meat a certain aroma.
NB!! Oil may be applied onto the meat
before laying on the grill.
Grilling over water
Grilling may be done with water
instead of the lava blocs. If the grill
elements are preheated for

Tips on frying
This is how it is done. Firstly, the
desired temperature is set and after a
while the correct temperature of the oil
is reached (the lamp for the fryer is
switched off). Lower the frying basket
into the oil.
NB!! Remember that moist foodstuff
should be dried before frying (ie.
seafood, vegetables, fruit, fish). After
frying the basket is lifted out and
carefully shaken to remove excess oil
(the basket may be hung on the fixing
bracket in order to let the oil run off
further). In the table the approximate
times are given for frying, which may
serve as a guide. The times depend on
the finished appearance and personal
taste.
If you should want to fry large
amounts of food at the same time, it is
best to take up the basket after 1-2
minutes so that the oil may quickly
reach the correct temperature again.
The fried food will get more crispy
this way. If it does not get crispy
enough (even if the temperature is set
correctly), or if the oil changes colour
to light brown, the oil should be
changed.
NB!! Make sure that no naked flames
are near the fryer. The oil is hot and
ignites easily. Remember to set the
temperature dial back to 0 once the
frying is finished.

Food remains left in the oil must be
removed before the fryer is used
because of fire risk!
If you should want to use both the grill
and the fryer, for instance to make a
beef steak with french fries, the
following method may be used:
side and switch on the fryer. After a
few minutes the oil is once again hot
enough and the chips may be fried
until they are crispy.
Dinner is now ready to be served.
1. Prepare the fryer to use by
removing the grill grid and box for
lava blocks, and turn the grill elements
upright. Heat the oil to 190˚C (Approx.
10 minutes). Put the chips into the
basket and lower it in the heated oil.
Boil the chips almost ready (crispy
an light brown). Hang the basket for
dripping on the bracket and place it
thereafter on kitchen paper.
Switch off the fryer.
2. The grill is used as follows:
install the lava blocks box, lower the
grill elements and lay on the grill grid.
Preheat on setting 12 for about 5-8
minutes before laying on the beef
steaks. Fry the steaks (10-15 minutes
form rare to well done).
Switch off the grill.
3. Then place the steaks on a serving
platter and keep warm. The French
fries can now be finished. Take off the
grill grid. Turn up the grill elements
and remove the lava block box. Use
kitchen gloves as the grill is hot.
Turn the grill elements down along one
