Use Advice on energy-saving • The diameter of the base of the pan must correspond to the diameter of the cooking zone. • When buying a saucepan, check whether the diameter indicated is that of the base or the top of the container, as the top is almost always larger than the base. • The base of the cookware must be thick and completely flat. It should also be clean and dry. The hob should be clean and dry as well. • When preparing dishes with long cooking times, you can save time and energy by using a pressure cooker, which also makes it possible to preserve the vitamins in the food. • Make sure that the pressure cooker contains enough liquid as, if there is not enough and it overheats, this may cause damage to both the pressure cooker and the cooking zone. • If possible, always cover saucepans with a suitable lid. 56 • Choose a pan suitable for the quantity of food to be cooked. A large, half-empty saucepan leads to a waste of energy. • Do not use cast-iron cookware or cookware with a rough base. Under certain circumstances, if the hob and the oven are being used at the same time, the maximum power limit that can be used by the electrical system might be exceeded.

If the cooking zone settings are not changed, the maximum duration of operation for each zone depends on the power level selected. When the device for limiting the duration of use is activated, the cooking zone turns off, a short alert sounds and, if the zone is hot, the symbol appears on the display. If you are using the hob at full power for a long time, for the electronics it could be difficult to cool down, especially if the room temperature is high. In this case a device intervenes to cut off the power supply to the front cooking zones and the display shows and flashing. If the temperature of the electronic circuit board does not decrease, the device will disconnect power to all the cooking zones and will appear on the display (on some models only). Cooking can be resumed once the temperature returns below alarm levels. 58 Power level Maximum cooking time (min.)

Cleaning and maintenance Improper use Risk of damage to surfaces • Do not use steam jets to clean the appliance. • Do not spill sugar or sweet mixtures on the hob during cooking. • Do not place materials or substances that could melt (plastic or aluminium foil). • Keep sensor keys clean at all times and do not rest any object on them. • Do not use cleaning products containing chlorine, ammonia or bleach on parts made of steel or that have metallic surface finishes (e.g. anodizing, nickelor chromium-plating). • Do not use abrasive or corrosive detergents (e.g. scouring powders, stain removers and metallic sponges) on glass parts. Use wooden or plastic utensils. 4.1 Cleaning the surfaces To keep the surfaces in good condition, they should be cleaned regularly after use. Let them cool first. 4.2 Ordinary weekly cleaning Clean and maintain the hob once a week using an ordinary glass cleaning product. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. The silicon in these products creates a protective, water-repellent membrane which also resists dirt. All marks stay on the membrane and can therefore be removed easily. After cleaning, dry the surface with a clean cloth. Make sure that there is no detergent left on the cooking surface as it will undergo a corrosive reaction when heated up and could modify the structure of the cooking surface. 4.3 Food stains or residues Light coloured marks from pans with aluminium bases can be easily cleaned off with a cloth moistened in vinegar. After cooking, remove any burnt residues with the scraper provided; rinse with water and dry thoroughly with a clean cloth. Regular use of the scraper considerably reduces the need for chemical detergents for the daily cleaning of the hob. Dirt which may have fallen on the hob while cleaning lettuce or potatoes can scratch the hob when moving pans. Consequently, remove any dirt from the cooking surface immediately. Changes in colour do not affect the operation and stability of the glass. These are not alterations to the material of the hob but just residues which have not been removed and have then carbonised. 59 EN 4 Cleaning and maintenance Cleaning and maintenance Shiny surfaces can form due to the bases of pans, especially aluminium ones, rubbing on the surface, and due to the use of unsuitable detergents. They are difficult to remove using conventional cleaning products. It may be necessary to repeat the cleaning process several times. Use of corrosive detergents or rubbing of pan bases can wear away the decoration on the hob over time and contribute to the formation of stains. 4.4 What to do if... The hob does not work: • Make sure that the hob is connected and that the main switch is turned on. • Make sure that there is no power failure. • Make sure that the fuse has not blown. In this case replace the fuse. • Make sure that the circuit breaker of the residential electrical system has not tripped. In this case, reset the circuit breaker. • Make sure that the sensor key are not locked by the Controls lock. • Make sure that the keys are not partially covered by a damp cloth, a liquid or a metal object. 60 The cooking results are unsatisfactory: • Make sure that the cooking temperature is not too high or too low. The hob smokes: • Let the hob cool down and clean it once cooking is complete. • Make sure that the food has not spilled out of the pan and use a larger cooking vessel, if needed. The display shows “E2”: • Make sure that there is no spilled food on the sensor keys. • Remove any pan or object that are partially resting on the sensor keys. “E” appears on the display: • One of the keys has been kept pressed for a long time or a technical fault has occurred. In the latter case, contact Technical Support. The fuses blow or the circuit breaker of the residential electrical system trips repeatedly. • Call Technical Support or an electrician. There are cracks or fissures in the hob: • Turn off the appliance immediately, disconnect the power supply and contact Technical Support.
