Pan rest for the economy burner (option):
Use the pan rest supplied with the appliance when you use the
economy burner to prepare dishes using small saucepans with
a diameter of less than 12 cm or Turkish coffee using a small
espresso jug.
It is essential to ensure that all the burner parts and pan
supports are correctly installed for the appliance to work
correctly. Do not swap the burner caps around.
Place the pan rest on the economy burner's steel grid.
Do not use the pan rest for saucepans with a diameter of more
than 12 cm.
The pan rest must only be used on the economy burner.
Before first use
The things you should note before first use are detailed below.
First read the Safety Precautions section .
Cleaning the accessories
Before you use the accessories for the first time, clean them
thoroughly with hot soapy water and a soft dish cloth.
Advance cleaning of burner cup and cap
Clean the burner cap (1) and burner cup (2) with water and
washing-up liquid. Dry the individual parts carefully.
Place the burner cup and cap back on the burner shell (5).
Ensure that the igniter (3) and flame safety pin (4) are not
damaged.
The nozzle (6) must be dry and clean. Always position the
burner cap exactly over the burner cup.
6
Making settings on the hob
Your hob is equipped with four gas burners. The following
information explains how to light the gas burners and set the
size of flame.
Igniting the gas burners
Ensure that the burner lid always sits on the burner cup
correctly. The slots on the burner cup must not be blocked. All
parts must be dry.
The burner knob should not be pressed in the ignition position
for longer than 15 seconds. If the burner does not ignite within
15 seconds, wait at least one minute. Then repeat the ignition
process.
: Caution!
If, after switching the gas hob off, you turn the burner knob
while the gas hob is still hot, gas will escape. If you do not
press the burner knob, the gas is not ignited and the gas
supply is interrupted within 90 seconds.
No ignition occurs
If there is a power cut or if the ignition plugs are damp, you can
light the gas burners with a gas lighter or a match.
Warnings
It is normal to hear a soft whistling noise while the burner is
operating.
1. Press the burner knob of the selected burner in and turn it
anti-clockwise to the highest power level. When the burner
knob is pressed, the ignition process starts.
2. Press and hold the burner knob for 3-5 seconds. Gas begins
to flow out and the gas burner ignites.
The safety pilot is activated. If the gas flame goes out, the gas
supply is automatically cut off by the safety pilot.
When first used, it is normal for the burner to give off odours.
This does not pose any risk and does not indicate a
malfunction. They will disappear in time.
An orange-coloured flame is normal. This is caused by the
presence of dust in the atmosphere, spilt liquids, etc.
If the burner flames are accidentally blown out, switch off the
burner operating control knob and do not try to relight it for at
least 1 minute.
3. Set the required flame height. The flame is not stable
A few seconds after the burner is switched off, a sound (thud)
will be produced. This is not a fault - this means that the safety
device is no longer operating.
4. If the flame goes out again, repeat the process from step 1.
Keep the burner as clean as possible. If the ignition sparkers
are dirty they will not light properly. Clean them periodically
using a small non-wire brush. Bear in mind that the ignition
sparkers must not suffer any serious impacts.
between the Off position and the highest power level. For this
reason, you should always select a setting between the
highest and lowest power level.
5. To finish cooking, turn the burner knob clockwise to the Off
position.

Precautions for use
The following advice is intended to help you save energy and
prevent pan damage:
Use pans which are the right
size for each burner.
Do not use small pans on
large burners. The flame must
not touch the sides of the pan.
Do not use damaged pans,
which do not sit evenly on the
hob. Pans may tip over.
Do not cook without using a lid
and make sure the lid is
properly fitted. This wastes
energy.
Always centre the pan over the
burner, not to one side.
Otherwise it could tip over.
Do not place large pans on the
burners near the control
knobs. These may be
damaged by the very high
temperatures.
Place the pans on the pan
supports, never directly on the
burner.
Make sure that the pan
supports and burner caps are
correctly positioned before
using the appliance.
Only use pans with a thick, flat
base.
7
Pans should be placed on the
hob carefully.
Do not strike the hob and do
not place excessive weight on
it.
Table - Cooking
Select the right saucepan size for each burner. The diameter of
the saucepan or pan base should be the same as that of the
burner.
Cooking times may vary depending on the type of food, its
weight and quality. You yourself can best judge the optimal
cooking time.
Use as little water as possible when cooking, so that the food
retains its vitamins and minerals. Select short cooking times so
that the vegetables remain firm and full of nutrients.

* Optional (available for some appliances, depending on the appliance model)
If the pan supports are fitted with rubber rests, ensure that
these are also cleaned. The rests may come loose and the pan
support may scratch the hob.
After cleaning and drying the steel grids, ensure that they are
correctly fitted.
Maintenance
Always clean off any liquid as soon as it is spilt. This will
prevent food remains from sticking to the hob surface and you
will save yourself any unnecessary effort.
After each use, clean the surface of the respective burner parts
once they have cooled down. If any residue is left (baked-on
food, drops of grease etc.), however little, it will become stuck
to the surface and more difficult to remove later. The holes and
grooves must be clean for the flame to ignite properly.
The movement of some pans may leave metal residue on the
pan supports.
Clean the burners and pan supports using soapy water and
scrub with a non-wire brush.
Thoroughly remove spilt cooking oil and acidic foodstuffs such
as lemon immediately.
Under no circumstance should abrasive cleaning powder be
used to clean the control panel. The inscriptions can be
scratched off as a result.
The burner caps are coated with black enamel. Due to the high
temperatures, discolouration may occur. Their burner function
is not adversely affected by this.
Never slide pans across the glass surface, as you may scratch
it. In addition, try not to drop heavy or sharp objects on the
glass. Never strike any part of the hob.
Grains of sand that may come from cleaning fruits and
vegetables will scratch the glass surface.
Melted sugar, or foods which contain a lot of sugar which may
have spilt, should be cleaned off the hotplate immediately,
using the glass scraper.
Avoid spilling salt on the surface of the electric hob.
Do not clean individual parts of the appliance in the
dishwasher.
Always dry the burners and pan supports completely. Water
droplets or damp patches on the hob at the start of cooking
may damage the enamel.
Caution!
The stainless steel cleaner must not be used in the area around
the controls. The (printed) symbols may be wiped off.

We reserve the right to introduce changes.
Packaging and equipment used
If your appliance has a crossed-out dustbin symbol ) , please
note the following.
Energy-saving tips
■
Environmentally-friendly disposal
Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-friendly manner.
This appliance is labelled in accordance with
European Directive 2012/19/EU concerning used
electrical and electronic appliances (waste electrical
and electronic equipment - WEEE). The guideline
determines the framework for the return and recycling
of used appliances as applicable throughout the EU.
The packaging of your appliance has been manufactured using
only the materials which are strictly necessary to guarantee
efficient protection during transport. These materials are 100%
recyclable, thus reducing the environmental impact. You can
also contribute to caring for the environment by following the
advice below:
■
■
■
Dispose of the packaging in the appropriate recycling bin.
Before you get rid of an old appliance, make sure you disable
it. Contact your local authority to find out the address of your
nearest recycling centre to dispose of your appliance.
Do not pour used oil down the sink. Collect it in a sealed
container and take it to an appropriate collection point or,
failing that, place it in the rubbish bin (it will end up in a
controlled dump; this is probably not the best option, but it
will avoid contaminating ground water)
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
Always place suitable lids on saucepans. When cooking
without a lid, considerably more energy is required. A glass
lid means that you can see inside without having to lift the lid.
Use pots and pans with even bases. Uneven bases increase
energy consumption.
The diameter of pot and pan bases should be the same size
as the hotplate. In particular, small saucepans on the hotplate
cause energy losses. Please note: cookware manufacturers
often indicate the upper diameter of the saucepan. This is
usually bigger than the diameter of the base of the pan.
Use a small saucepan for small quantities. A larger, less full
saucepan requires a lot of energy.
Cook with only a little water. This will save energy. Vitamins
and minerals in vegetables are preserved.
Always cover as large an area of the hotplate as possible
with your saucepan.
Switch to a lower heat setting in good time.
Select a suitable ongoing cooking setting. You will waste
energy by using an ongoing cooking setting which is too
high.
Use the residual heat of the hob. For longer cooking times,
you can switch the hotplate off 5-10 minutes before the end
of the cooking time.
Measures to be noted during transport
Secure all mobile parts on the appliance using an adhesive
tape that can be removed without leaving any traces. Secure
the top cover, if available, to the appliance sides using
adhesive tape.
Keep the original appliance packaging. Only transport the
appliance in the original packaging. Observe the transport
arrows on the packaging.
If the original packaging is no longer available
pack the appliance in protective packaging to guarantee
sufficient protection against any transport damage.
The appliance must be transported upright, with the hotplate
and the burners facing upwards. Do not place any heavy
objects on the appliance.
