4 Preparation
Tips for energy saving
Initial use
First cleaning of the appliance
The following information will help you to use
your hob in an ecological way, and to save
energy:
x Defrost frozen dishes before cooking
them.
x Use pots/pans with cover for cooking. If
there is no cover, energy consumption
may increase 4 times.
x Select the burner which is suitable for the
bottom size of the pot to be used. Always
select the correct pot size for your dishes.
Larger pots require more energy.
x Pay attention to use flat bottom pots when
cooking with electric hobs.
x Pots with a thicker base will provide a
better heat conduction. You can obtain
energy savings up to 1/3.
x Vessels and pots must be compatible with
the cooking zones. Bottom of the vessels
or pots must not be smaller than the
hotplate.
x Keep the cooking zones and bottom of the
pots clean. Dirt will decrease the heat
conduction between the cooking zone and
bottom of the pot.
x For longer cooking time periods, turn off
the cooking zone 5 or 10 minutes before
the end of cooking time. You can obtain
energy savings up to 20% by using the
residual heat.
The surface might get damaged
by some detergents or cleaning
materials.
Do not use aggressive
detergents, cleaning powders/
creams or any sharp objects
during cleaning.
Do not use harsh abrasive
cleaners or sharp metal
scrapers to clean oven door
glass since they can scratch the
surface, which may result in
shattering of the glass.
1. Remove all packaging materials.
2. Wipe the surfaces of the hob with a damp
cloth or sponge and dry with a cloth.
Initial heating
Hot plate
1. Any production residues or conservation
layers must be burnt before the first use.
Operate the hotplate at middle temperature
level for 8 minutes without any vessel on it.
No pots or containers should be placed onto
the hotplate during this procedure..
Smoke and smell may emit for
a couple of hours during the
initial operation. This is quite
normal. Ensure that the room is
well ventilated to remove the
smoke and smell. Avoid directly
inhaling the smoke and the
smell that emits.
Since the following are not factory faults,
they are the owner’s responsibility.
x Damage to exterior finish.
x Breakage of components.
x Damage through improper use or
installation of the appliance.
x Damage caused by moving the appliance.

5 How to use the hob
General information about cooking
DANGER Risk of fire by
overheated oil! When you heat
oil, do not leave it unattended.
Never try to extinguish the fire
with water! When oil has caught
fire, immediately cover the pot or
pan with a lid. Switch off the hob
if safe to do so and phone the
fire service.
x Before frying foods, always dry them well

and gently place into the hot oil. Ensure
complete thawing of frozen foods before
frying.
Do not cover the vessel you use when
heating oil.
Place the pans and saucepans in a
manner so that their handles are not over
the hob to prevent heating of the handles.
Do not place unbalanced and easily tilting
vessels on the hob.
Do not place empty vessels and
saucepans on cooking zones that are
switched on. They might get damaged.
Operating a cooking zone without a vessel
or saucepan on it will cause damage to the
product. Turn off the cooking zones after
the cooking is complete.
As the surface of the product can be hot,
do not put plastic and aluminum vessels
on it. Clean any such melted materials off
the surface immediately.
Such vessels should not be used to keep
foods either.
Use flat bottomed saucepans or vessels
only.
Put appropriate amount of food in
saucepans and pans. Thus, you will not
have to make any unnecessary cleaning
by preventing the dishes from overflowing.
Do not put covers of saucepans or pans
on cooking zones.
Place the saucepans in a manner so that
they are centered on the cooking zone.
When you want to move the saucepan
onto another cooking zone, lift and place it
onto the cooking zone you want instead of
sliding it.

mains supply before starting
maintenance and cleaning
works. There is the risk of
electric shock!
DANGER:

washing liquid, a soft cloth or sponge to
clean the product and wipe it with a dry
cloth.
x Always ensure any excess liquid is
thoroughly wiped off after cleaning and any
spillage is immediately wiped dry.
x Do not use cleaning agents that contain
acid or chloride to clean the stainless or
inox surfaces and the handle. Use a soft
cloth with a liquid detergent (not abrasive)
to wipe those parts clean, paying attention
to sweep in one direction.
The surface might get damaged
by some detergents or cleaning
materials. Do not use aggressive
detergents, cleaning powders/
creams or any sharp objects
during cleaning. Do not use
harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp
metal scrapers to clean the oven
door glass since they can scratch
the surface, which may result in
shattering of the glass.
