1.4
Instructions for use
Before using for the first time
▪ The appliance must be installed and
connected to the electricity supply in
accordance with the separate installation instructions. Have a qualified fitter/
electrician carry out the necessary
work.
Correct use
▪ The appliance is designed for use in
the home for preparing food. No liability
is assumed for any damage caused by

in case of a repair order, follow the instructions given in the 'Repair service'
section. Contact our Customer Services
if necessary.
▪ Use original spare parts only.
▪ Retain these operating instructions for
future reference. If you sell the appliance or pass it on to a third party,
please ensure these operating instructions accompany the appliance, together with the installation instructions.
▪ The appliance corresponds to recognized technology standards and the relevant safety regulations. However,
proper use of the appliance is essential
to avoid damage and accidents. Please
therefore follow the precautions given in
these operating instructions.
5
1 Safety precautions
▪ The heated surface will remain hot for
some time after it is switched off and
will cool down only slowly to room temperature. Please allow sufficient time for
the appliance to cool down before, for
instance, cleaning it.
Note on use
▪ Tests have shown that under normal circumstances there is no risk to cardiac
pacemaker users. If, as the user of a
cardiac pacemaker (or a hearing aid or
another type of implant), you would like
to be reassured that using the appliance does not pose a risk, you are advised to consult a competent medical
authority.
Caution: Burns hazard
▪ Overheated fat and oil can easily catch
fire. Never attempt to extinguish burning
oil or fat with water. Danger of explosion! Smother the flames with a fire
blanket. Keep doors and windows
closed.
Caution: Risk of injury
▪ Keep pets away from the appliance.
Caution: Risk to life
▪ Packaging materials, e.g. plastic film
and polystyrene, can be dangerous for
children. Danger of suffocation! Keep
packaging material away from children.
How to avoid damaging the appliance
▪ Under no circumstances place hot pots
or pans on the display!
▪ In case of overheating, switch the hotplate off and allow it to cool down completely. Do not put any dishes on it. Under no circumstances use cold water to
cool it down quickly.
▪ Do not climb on to the appliance.
▪ Do not put hot cookware on the hob
frame in order not to damage the silicone joints.
6
▪ Do not cut or prepare food on the surface and avoid impact with hard objects. Do not drag cookware across the
surface.
▪ Take particular care that sugary foods
or juices do not get onto the hot cooking zones as it can damage them. If
sugary foods or juices do get on to the
hot cooking zones clean away immediately (while still hot) with a scraper.
▪ Pots with pure copper or aluminium
bases should not be used for cooking
as they can leave behind traces that
can be difficult to clean. If the traces
are not removed immediately after
cooking with a suitable cleaning agent,
they can be permanently burned on and
therefore permanently ruin the visual
appearance of the appliance.
▪ Sliding pans and cookware across the
glass ceramic causes scratches. This
can be largely prevented by lifting pans
and cookware up and then placing
them down in position.
▪ The hob is designed to be used – signs
of use, such as scratches or the wear
and tear from pans and cookware, are
normal. The more intensively it is used,
the greater the signs of use; however,
the appliance remains in perfect working order and therefore does not give a
right of complaint. Safety is guaranteed
at all times.
▪ There is no such thing as completely
scratch-proof glass; scratches can even
develop on sapphire glass, which is
used in watches. The glass ceramic
used is of the best quality available on
the market.
2
Using for the first time
The appliance must be installed and connected to the electricity supply in accordance with the separate installation instructions. Have a qualified fitter/electrician
carry out the necessary work.
During the first few hours of use, a cooking zone can give off an unpleasant smell.
This is normal for brand new appliances. Ensure that the room is well ventilated.

How induction hobs function
Induction hobs work very differently from conventional hobs or hot plates. The induction
coils under the glass ceramic plate produce a rapidly changing magnetic field which directly heats up the magnetic base of the cookware.
The glass ceramic plate is only warmed by the hot cookware. Removing the cookware
from the cooking zone immediately interrupts the supply of energy.
Induction hobs are:
▪ quick reacting
▪ energy-efficient
▪ finely adjustable
▪ safe.
▪ powerful
Induction hobs can only be used with cookware with a complete/full magnetic
base.

In flexible cooking, there are no marked cooking zones.
Pans with different diameters can be placed on any cooking zone.

must, however, be
3 Your appliance
If a large pan covers both circles, both heating zones can be switched on together
with the bridging function.
For even frying, the pan must be centred on .
The diameter of the base of the pan should not be greater than the diameter of the
cooking zone.
3.5
Pan detection
Each cooking zone is equipped with pan detection. This detects suitable induction compatible cookware with a magnetic base.
▪ If the cookware is removed during operation or if unsuitable cookware is used,
– the power level selected flashes alternately with .
▪ If no suitable cookware is placed on the cooking zone before the pan detection time
(10 minutes) elapses,
– the cooking zone switches off.
– the display changes from
to «0».
– the appliance switches off after 10 seconds if no other cooking zone is in use.
3.6
Cookware
Suitable cookware
Only cookware with a magnetic base (ø 10 cm to 22 cm) is suitable for use with the induction hob.
This can be tested in the following ways:
▪ A magnet sticks anywhere on the base of the cookware.
▪ Only the power level set illuminates on the hob.
Do not heat any unsuitable cookware using aids such as metal rings and the like.
This can damage the hob.
Energy-efficient cooking
For maximum energy efficiency and even heat distribution note the following:
▪ The base of the cookware must be clean, dry and smooth.
▪ Centre the cookware in the middle of the cooking zone.
▪ Use a well-fitting lid.
▪ Match the diameter of the cookware to the quantity of food to be cooked.
Coated cookware
▪ Coated cookware may be operated above power level «7» provided that the bottom of
the pan is completely covered with liquid.
– The coating may otherwise become overheated and damaged.
▪ For frying, do not use a higher power level than «7».
Never use PowerPlus with coated frying pans.
Noise during cooking
Cookware can make noise during cooking. This does not indicate any malfunction, nor
does it affect the functioning of the appliance in any way.
Noise depends on the cookware used. If the noise causes considerable disturbance, it can help to change the cookware.

OptiGlass
Applies to GK46TIMASCO, GK46TIMASZO, GK57TIMSZO
Hobs with OptiGlass have an additional coating on the glass surface.
This coating makes the surface harder, tougher and more scratch resistant than noncoated glass surfaces.
Under normal circumstances, significantly fewer scratches should occur on the
glass surface during cooking. However, even a sharp grain of sand or particle of
grit, for example, under a pan can cause scratches.
Illumination
▸ Halogen or LED light bulbs are recommended for illuminating hobs with the OptiGlass
coating.
The use of fluorescent tube lighting to illuminate hobs with the OptiGlass coating
causes the glass surface to shimmer.

Care and maintenance
Clean the appliance only when it has completely cooled down.
Risk of burns!
Always clean the hob after use. This prevents food residue from burning on. Dried-on or
burned-on food residue is harder to clean off.
Use of improper cleaning techniques can result in damage to the markings or surface.
Avoid cleaning the surface of the glass ceramic hob with abrasive cleaning agents,
scouring pads, wire wool, etc. as it can damage them.
21
6 Care and maintenance
▸ Use only a soft cloth or sponge with water and a suitable detergent for cleaning everyday soiling. Always follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions for use. Using a
detergent with a protective additive is recommended.
▸ Remove stubborn soiling, e.g. boiled-over milk, while still warm using a glass ceramic
hob scraper. Always follow the scraper manufacturer's instructions for use.
▸ Foods with a high sugar content, e.g. marmalade, that boil over should be removed
while still hot using a glass ceramic hob scraper. The surface of the glass ceramic
hob could otherwise become damaged.
▸ Remove melted plastic while still warm using a glass ceramic hob scraper. The surface of the glass ceramic hob could otherwise become damaged.
▸ Remove limescale stains when cool with a small amount of limescale remover, e.g.
vinegar or lemon juice. Then wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Cleaning
For good results, follow these cleaning instructions.
▸ To clean thoroughly, remove most of the soiling using a hob scraper or a special
cleaning sponge for glass ceramic hobs.
▸ Add a few drops of a suitable cleaning fluid to the cold hob surface and rub over the
surface using kitchen towel or a clean cloth.
▸ Wipe off with a wet cloth and then polish with a dry cloth or the soft side of a suitable
cleaning sponge.
Only use the cleaning agents and methods recommended on our «Homepage».
