Do not place hot pans on the control panel, the indicator
area, or the hob frame. Doing so may cause damage.
Hard or pointed objects dropped on the hob may damage it.
Aluminium foil and plastic containers will melt if placed on the

Environmental protection
Unpack the appliance and dispose of the packaging in an
environmentally-responsible manner.
Tips for saving energy
■
Environmentally-responsible disposal
This appliance is labelled in accordance with
European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste
Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). The
directive provides a framework for the collection
and recycling of old appliances, which is valid
across the EU.
■
■
■
■
Use pots and pans with even bases. Using cookware with
uneven bases increases energy consumption.
Use a small pan for small quantities of food. A larger, less full
saucepan requires more energy.
Always cover pans with a closely fitting lid. Cooking without
the lid requires four times as much energy.
Use only a little water when cooking. This saves energy. It
also preserves vitamins and minerals in vegetables.
Switch to a lower power level in good time.
Induction cooking
Advantages
Cookware base
With induction cooking, the heat is generated directly in the pan
base. This has many advantages:
The properties of the cookware base can influence the cooking
result. The material of the cookware base should distribute the
heat evenly. A sandwich base of stainless steel is a good
example.
■
■
■
Time saved when cooking and roasting. The cookware is
heated up directly.
Energy-saving.
Easier care and cleaning. Food which has overflowed does
not burn on as quickly.
Empty cooking containers or cookware with a thin base
: Risk of burning!
Cookware
Do not heat up any empty cooking containers or cookware with
a thin base. An empty cooking container can heat up so quickly
that the safety shut-down is not activated on time and a high
temperature can be reached. The base of the container could
melt and damage the glass ceramic of the cooktop. Do not
touch the hot cooking container and switch the cooking
position off. If the cooktop does not work after the cooking
position has cooled down, contact the after-sales service.
Suitable cookware
Pot detection
■
Controlled heat supply and safety. The induction generates
or interrupts the heat supply immediately after each use. The
heating is interrupted when you remove the cookware from
the cooking position, even if the cooking position is still
switched on.
Only use ferromagnetic cookware made of enamelled steel,
cast iron or special induction cookware made of rust-free
stainless steel.
Unsuitable cookware
Never use cookware made of conventional steel,glass,
ceramic, copper or aluminium.
Checking the cookware
Your cookware is suitable if the pan base can attract a magnet.
Saucepan manufacturers usually indicate cookware that is
suitable for induction cooking.
6
The position, size and shape of the cookware used is
automatically detected by the cooktop. Sizes with a diameter of
90 to 340 mm are suitable.
Note: The cooking position indicators may differ from the actual
size and shape of the cookware. This is normal and does not
adversely affect the correct operation of the cooktop.
Getting to know your appliance
Cooktop

surface with this indicator. Even if the hob is already off, the
display will stay lit for as long as the cooking surface is still hot.
First select the value you wish to adjust. Then touch the display

Setting the power level
The cooktop must be switched on.
1. Place cookware on the cooking surface.
2. Touch the # symbol of the cooking position in the display.
0.0 lights up in the display.
To switch on: touch the # symbol. The indicator above the
main switch lights up. After a short activation time, the cooktop

The heat indicator remains lit until the cooking positions have
cooled down sufficiently.
To switch off: touch the # symbol. The indicator in the display
switches off. All cooking positions are switched off. Hibernate
mode is activated. See section Hibernate mode.
Note: The cooktop switches off automatically if all cooking
positions have been switched off for more than 60 seconds
and you do not make any settings on the touch display.
Hibernate mode
As soon as you switch off the hob, Hibernate mode is activated
for a set duration. The lamp above the main switch flashes.
Only after this duration has passed does the hob switch off
completely. During Hibernate mode, you can switch the
appliance on again using the main switch. The appliance is
immediately ready for use.
Note: To find out how to change the duration of the Hibernate
mode, see section Options menu.
Setting a cooking position
Use the scroll function to set the desired power level.
Power level 1.0
= Lowest power

Switching off the cooking position
Slide your finger down until 0.0 appears. The cooking position
switches off and appears as a detected cooking position after

Settings table
The following table provides some examples. Cooking times
may vary depending on the type of food, its weight and quality.
Deviations are therefore possible.
Note: During cooking, stews or liquid meals such as soups,
sauces or drinks can heat up too quickly unnoticed and
overflow or spatter. For this reason we recommend that you stir
continuously, gradually heating the food at a suitable power
level.

Demo mode
Normal operating noise of the cooktop
If the “Demo“ symbol appears in the display, the demo mode
is activated. The appliance does not heat up. Disconnect the
appliance from the power supply. Wait a few seconds and
reconnect it. Then switch off the Demo mode in the Options
menu within the first 3 minutes.
Induction technology is based on the generation of
electromagnetic fields. These allow heat to be generated
directly on the base of the cookware. Pots or pans can cause
different noises or vibrations depending on the manufacturing
method. These noises are described as follows:
Info button
With the Info button, you can request important additional
information on the function currently being used. To call up the
information, touch the ±display area. The information appears.
To close the Information, touch the ± display area.
Deep buzzing (as from a transformer)
This noise occurs when cooking on higher power levels. It is
due to the volume of energy transferred from the cooktop to the
cookware. The noise stops or reduces when the power level is
reduced.
Low whistling
This noise occurs if the cooking container is empty. It stops
when water or food is placed in the container.
Crackling
,QIRUPDWLRQ
7RFKDQJHWKHSRZHUOHYHOWRXFKWKHQXPEHUVDQGVOLGH\RXU
ILQJHUXSRUGRZQ
This noise occurs with cookware made of different multilayer
materials. It occurs because of vibrations at the areas at which
the different materials contact each other. The noise occurs on
the cookware and can vary according to the volume and
preparation method of the food.
Loud whistling
This noise occurs for cookware made of different multilayer
materials if they are also used on the maximum power level and
on two cooking positions at the same time. The noise stops or
reduces when the power level is reduced.
Fan noises
For correct operation of the electronic system, the cooktop
temperature must be regulated. To do this, the cooktop is
equipped with a cooling fan which is operated to reduce and
regulate the temperature of the electronic system. The fan can
also continue to run when the appliance is switched off, if the
temperature measured after switching the cooktop off is still too
hot.
The above-mentioned noises are a normal part of induction
technology and should not be considered as a defect.
