Operating Instructions
1 Safety
The safety aspects of this appliance comply with accepted technical
standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. However, as manufacturers we also believe it is our responsibility to familiarise you with the
following safety instructions.
Electrical Safety
3
• The installation and connection of the new appliance must only be
carried out by qualified personnel.
• Repairs to the appliance are only to be carried out by approved service engineers. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause
injury or serious malfunctioning. If your appliance needs repairing,
please contact your local Service Force Centre.
Please follow these instructions, otherwise the warranty will not cover
any damage that may occur.
• Flush-mounted appliances may only be operated following installation in suitable installation cabinets and workplaces which conform
to the relevant standards. This ensures sufficient protection against
contact for electrical units as required by the VDE [Association of
German Electrical Engineers].
• If your appliance malfunctions or if fractures, cracks or splits appear:
– switch off all cooking zones,
– disconnect the hob from the electricity supply.
Child Safety
The cooking zones will become hot when you cook. Therefore, always
keep small children away from the appliance.
5
Safety During Use
• This appliance may only be used for normal cooking and frying in the
home. It is not designed for commercial or industrial purposes.
• Do not use the hob to heat the room.
• Take care when plugging electric appliances into mains sockets near
the hob. Connection leads must not come into contact with the hot
surface.
• Overheated fats and oils catch fire quickly. You should supervise
cooking when preparing foods in fat or oil (e.g. chips).
• Switch off the cooking zones after use.
Special Notes on Induction Cooking Zones
3
• Scientific studies have shown that patients who are fitted with implanted pacemakers are not normally affected or put at risk by our
induction cooking zones.
The distance between the body and the cooking zone should, however, never be less than 30 cm!
• Electromagnetic fields can affect electronic circuits and interfere
with portable transistor radios.
• Do not put magnetically rechargeable objects (e.g., credit cards, cassettes) on the ceramic glass surface while one or more induction
cooking zones are in use!
• Do not put any metallic objects (e.g., spoons, pan lids) on the induction surface as they can be warmed up when the induction surface is
in use.
Some cookware can produce noises when used on induction cooking
zones. This is not a fault in the hob and its function will not be impaired in any way as a result.
Safety When Cleaning
• For safety reasons do not clean the appliance with a steam jet or high
pressure cleaner.
• Clean the hob in accordance with the maintenance and cleaning instructions in this manual.
6
How to avoid damage to the appliance
• Do not use the cooking area as a worktop or storage space.
• The frameless edge of the glass ceramic surface is susceptible to
knocks. Please be careful when moving pots and pans around.
• Do not have the cook zones on with empty pans, or with no pots or
pans on them.
• Ceramic glass is very tough, and impervious to sharp temperature
changes, but is not unbreakable. It can be damaged if particularly
hard or sharp objects fall on to it.
• Do not use pots made of cast iron, or which have damaged bases with
rough edges or burrs. Moving these around may cause scratches.
• If sugar or a mixture containing sugar falls onto a hot cooking zone
and melts, remove immediately, while still hot, using a kitchen scraper. If left to cool down, it may damage the surface when removed.
• Keep objects or materials liable to melt away from the ceramic glass
surface, for example, artificial materials, aluminium foil, or cooking
wraps. If any other materials or foodstuffs are melting on the ceramic
glass surface, these should also be cleaned away immediately, using a
kitchen scraper.
7
2 Disposal
Disposing of the packaging material
All materials used can be fully recycled.
Plastics are marked as follows:
• >PE< for polyethylene, as used for the outer wrapping and the bags
inside.
• >PS< for polystyrene foam, e.g., as used for the padding materials.
They are completely free of CFCs.

Warning: Before disposing of old appliances please make them inoperable so that they cannot be the source of danger.
To do this, disconnect the appliance from the mains supply and remove the mains lead.
To protect the environment, it is important that worn out appliances
are disposed of in the correct manner.
• The appliance must not be disposed of with household rubbish.
• You can obtain information about collection dates or public refuse
disposal sites from your local Council or Environmental Health Office.
The Key Features of Your Appliance
• Induction cooking zones: The appliance is fitted with a ceramic glass
hob and induction cooking zones. Induction heats the base of the
pan immediately and does not heat the ceramic glass hob first.
• Sensor fields: Your appliance is operated using Touch-Control sensor
fields.
• Cleaning: The advantage of the ceramic glass cooking surface and
the sensor fields is their accessibility for cleaning. The flat surface is
easy to clean.
• On/Off sensor field: In addition to the sensor field “On/Off” switch,
the appliance has a separate mains switch with which the mains supply to the appliance can be completely switched on and off with one
touch.
• Sensor field lock: With this device the operating panel can be
locked, for example as a safety precaution for children.
• Control and function indicators: Digital indicators or control lamp
provide information about settings made, functions activated, as well
as any residual heat of the corresponding cooking zone.
• Safety cut-out: A safety cut-out ensures that all cooking zones
switch off automatically after a period of time if the setting has not
been changed.
• Power device: With this device the power for the appropriate cooking rings can be temporarily increased.
• Keep warm setting: 1 is the setting for keeping foods warm.
• Residual heat indicator: An h for residual heat is shown in the display if the cooking zone becomes so hot that there is a risk of burning.
• Timer: All rings can be automatically switched off using the integrated timer. When the end of the cooking time has been reached, the
cooking zone switches off.

If one or more cooking zones switch off before the times indicated see
section “What to do if …”.
Cancelling the Safety Cut-out
To cancel the activated safety cut-out the appliance must be switched
off and then on again using the ON/OFF I sensor field. After this the
cooking zones are again ready for use.
Switching Off for Other Reasons
Liquids that boil over onto the control panel cause all cooking zones to
switch off immediately.
If you place a wet cloth on the control panel it has the same effect. In
both cases the appliance has to be switched on again using the mains
switch I after removing the liquid or cloth.
12
Function and the Way the Induction Cooking Zone Works
A copper wire induction coil is beneath the ceramic glass cooking surface. This generates electromagnetic fields, which act directly on the
base of the pots and pans and not, as with other heating up methods,
first heating the ceramic glass. This means that the base of the pan is
immediately heated up, which saves time and energy.
Since the heat required for cooking is generated directly in the base of
the pan the cooking zone itself hardly warms up. It only receives the reflected heat from the pan base.
3
Note:
If there is no pot or pan on the cooking zone there is no energy transfer
(heating up) and therefore gives protection against the cooking zones
being switched on accidentally.
A cooling fan is an integral part of this hob and comes on automatically depending on the temperature of the induction cooking zone. The
cooling fan works in two speed levels depending on usage. The cooling
fan will continue to run for a short period after the cooking zone has
been switched off.
13
Suitable Kitchenware for Induction Cooking Zones
Pots and Pans
• In principle all pots and pans with magnetic bases are suitable. These
are steel, steel-enamel as well as cast-iron pots and pans.
• High grade steel pans with a mixed metal base (sandwich base, e.g.
Tefal with an aluminium/copper base) are suitable for induction only
if the manufacturer has expressly marked them as such. In that case
they have a ferromagnetic percentage in the base.
• If you wish to use a special type of pan (e.g. a pressure cooker, simmering pan, wok, etc.), please observe the manufacturer's instructions.
• Aluminium, copper, brass, stainless steel pots and pans (unless specifically designated as suitable for induction), glass, ceramic or porcelain
are not suitable for induction cooking zones. The cooking zone reacts
as if it were being used without a pot or pan: Error code f.
Look for the label: Suitable for induction!
Suitability Test
If you are not sure if a pot or pan is suitable for cooking or frying on
the induction cooking zone you can check this as follows:
• Place a pot filled with a little water (3-5 mm filling height) on the
cooking zone.
Switch the cooking zone to full power (switch setting 9).
Caution: The pan base of suitable kitchenware heats up within a
few seconds!
• You can also check this with a magnet. If it remains fixed to the base
the pan is suitable for induction cooking zones.
Pan Size
Up to a certain limit the induction cooking zone adapts itself to the
size of the pan base diameter. However, the pan base diameter must be
of a minimum size, depending on the size of the cooking zone.
Diameter of the cooking zone 14,5 cm:
Diameter of the pan base at least 12 cm
Diameter of the cooking zone 18 cm:
Diameter of the pan base at least 14,5 cm
Diameter of the cooking zone 21 cm:
Diameter of the pan base at least 18 cm
14
Note:
Please note the diameter of the pan base when buying new pans,
since the manufacturers usually specify the top edge diameter of their
pans.
Automatic Pan Sensing
The induction cooking zone does not function when unsuitable pans
are used.
If the cooking zone is switched on without a suitable pan on it f
flashes in the digital display of the cooking zone.
After about 10 minutes the cooking zone switches itself off automatically. _ appears in the digital display.
Also when overheating occurs (e.g. heating up a pan that is empty) or
with faults in the electronics the display _ is lit. The cooking zone
switches itself off automatically.
To be able to use it again the cooking zone must have been first
switched off and then reset to the required heat setting.

18
If several cooking zones are being used simultaneously, the required
cooking zone must be selected by touching the appropriate sensor field
before adjusting the heat setting. The decimal point in the display
shows which cooking zone has been selected.
Activating the Power Function
Using the power function you can increase the power of both front
cooking zones for 10 minutes.
With this function you can, for example, bring a large quantity of water rapidly to the boil or brown meat.
3
To switch on the power function, the cooking zone must be selected
(decimal point in the display). Touch the “Power-function” sensor
field . p appears in the display. The power function is now active.
The power function will be activated for a maximum of 10 minutes.
Following this the cooking zone automatically switches to heat
setting 9.
The power function can be switched off in the following way:
• Touching the “Power function” sensor field .
• Touching the sensor field _.
1
As soon as the power function is activated for one of the front cooking
zones, less heating power is given to the rear cooking zone.
If the power function for the front right cooking zone is activated, the
rear left cooking zone can attain a maximum heat setting of “8”.
If the power function for the front left cooking zone is activated, the
rear right cooking zone can attain a maximum heat setting of “7”.
If a higher setting than 7 or 8 is set for the rear cooking zones, the display for the rear cooking zone concerned will show the differing settings alternately (e.g., 7 and 9).
As soon as the power function has ended (after a maximum of
10 minutes), the rear cooking zones automatically revert to their previously set heat setting.
19
Switching off a cooking zone
1. Select the required cooking zone with the cooking zone sensor fields.
2. Touch sensor fields + and - simultaneously to switch off or turn sensor field - back to zero.
3
20
A cooking zone may only be switched off when the decimal point is on
in the cooking zone display.
Cooking with the Automatic Heating-Up Function
All four cooking zones of the cooking field can be controlled in nine
stages and have an automatic heating-up function:
– 1, Lowest heat setting
– 9, Highest heat setting
– a, Heating-up function.
With the automatic heating-up function (a), the cooking zone operates for a certain time at full capacity and then automatically switches
back to the heat setting selected for further cooking.
The duration of the automatic heating-up function depends on the
heat setting selected for further cooking.
1. Select the required cooking zone with the cooking zone sensor fields.
The decimal point in the associated display field illuminates.
2. With the + or - sensor fields select heat setting 9. Stop briefly and
touch the + sensor field again.

After 5 seconds, a appears in the display again instead of heat setting
selected for further cooking. The heat setting is displayed again after
the heating-up time has ended.
If you select a higher heat setting when the automatic function is in
operation, e.g. from 3 to 5, the previous heating-up time is taken into
account. If you select a lower setting, then the automatic function is
brought to an immediate end. If you start cooking again on a cooking
zone that is still warm, the automatic heating-up function uses the residual heat. This saves time and energy.
Cooking without the Automatic Heating-Up Function
2
1. For heating up/browning, select a high power.
2. As soon as steam forms or the fat is hot, switch back to the required
heat setting for the remainder of the cooking time.
3. Reset to zero in order to end cooking.
Note:
When cooking with the induction cooking zone you should take into
account that
– the heating-up times are reduced by the direct energy transfer to the
pan!
– the cooking process stops immediately after the cooking zone is
switched off (no boiling over!)
Residual Heat Indicator
2
1
1
When an individual cooking zone or the entire hob is
switched off, any residual heat is shown with an h (for
“Hot”) in the digital display for the appropriate cooking
zones.
Even after the cooking zone has been switched off, the
residual heat indicator only goes out when the cooking zone is cold.
You can use the residual heat for melting and keeping food warm.
Important! As long as the residual heat indicator is illuminated, there
is a risk of burns.
Important! If the power supply is interrupted the h symbol will also
go out and information about residual heat will no longer be available.
However, it is still possible to burn yourself. This can be avoided by taking care around the hob.
23
Locking/Unlocking the Control Panel
With the exception of the “On/Off” sensor field the control panel can
be locked at any required time during cooking in order to prevent adjusting the settings such as when wiping over with a cloth. This
function is also suitable as a child safety feature.

Uses, tables and tips
Advice on cooking with and without automatic warm up
The automatic warm up function is suitable for:
• dishes that start off cold, are heated up at high power and do not
need to be continually watched when cooking on the selected heat
setting,
• dishes that are put in a hot frying pan.
The automatic warm up function is not suitable for:
• goulash, beef olives and similar braised dishes that need continual
turning until browned correctly, have liquid added and are then
braised until cooked,
• dumplings, pasta dishes with large amounts of liquid,
• cooking with pressure cookers,
• very large quantities of soup/stew with more than 2 litres of liquid.
General notes:
• When cooking without the automatic warm up function, we recommend the use of a high heat setting to warm up the food (using the
-) and then leave the dish to finish cooking at an appropriate lower
heat setting.
• Take special note of the results when you first use the appliance! You
can then decide which heat setting is the best for "your dishes" in the
"quantities you are accustomed to preparing" with "your pans". You
will then quickly appreciate the advantages of the automatic function and will feel relaxed about using your new hob.
• You can use the 1 heat setting for keeping food warm.
Tip when cooking with induction cooking zones:
• In order to obtain an even cooking result, the diameter of the bottom
of the pan used should not be greater than that of the cooking area
indicated on the glass ceramic.

Cleaning and care
Advantages for Cleaning and Caring for the Induction
Cooking Zone
2
The cleaning effort for induction ceramic glass cooking surfaces is considerably less than for cooking surfaces with radiant heating:
– The induction cooking zone reacts faster to switching down and off.
Boiling over and burning in of dishes is avoided to a large degree.
– The temperaturs on the ceramic glass surface are clearly lower with
inductive cooking than with the conventional radiant heating systems.
Since the heat is generated in the pan, food or foodstuffs possibly on
the glass ceramic surface are not burnt in as badly.
Hob
1
3
Important: Cleaning agents must not come into contact with the hot
ceramic glass surface! All cleaning agents must be removed with plenty
of clean water after cleaning because they can have a caustic effect
when the rings are next heated!
Do not use any aggressive cleaners such as grill or oven sprays, coarse
scourers or abrasive pan cleaners.
Clean the ceramic glass surface after each use when it is warm to the
touch or cold. This will avoid spillages becoming burnt on.
Remove scale and water marks, fat spots and discolouration with a
metallic shimmer using a commercially available ceramic glass or
stainless steel cleaner.
Light Soiling
1. Wipe the ceramic glass surface with a damp cloth and a little washing
up liquid.
2. Then rub dry with a clean cloth. Remnants of cleaner must not be
left on the surface.
3. Thoroughly clean the entire ceramic glass cooking surface once a week
with a commercially available ceramic glass or stainless steel cleaner.
4. Then wipe the ceramic glass surface using plenty of clean water and
rub dry with a clean fluff-free cloth.
30
Stubborn Soiling
3
1. To remove food that has boiled over
or stubborn splashes, use a glass
scraper.
2. Place the glass scraper at an angle
to the ceramic glass surface.
3. Remove soiling by sliding the blade.
You can obtain glass scrapers and
ceramic glass cleaners from your local Service Force Centre.
1
Problem Dirt
1. Remove burnt-on sugar, melted
plastic, aluminium foil or other
meltable materials with a glass
scraper immediately and while still
hot.
1
3
Important: There is a risk of burning yourself when the glass scraper
is used on a hot cooking zone!
2. Then clean the hob normally when
it has cooled down.
If the cooking zone on which something has melted has already cooled
down, warm it up again for cleaning.
Scratches or dark marks on the ceramic glass surface, caused for example by a pan base with sharp edges, cannot be removed. However, they
do not impair the function of the hob.
