Cookware
Suitable cookware
Cookware should have a stable bottom. When heated, the base of the cookware must lie flat on the surface of the cooking zone.
Cookware made of metal is more suitable than that made of glass or ceramic
as with metal the heat is distributed evenly quicker.
Cookware bases made of aluminium or aluminium alloys can leave stubborn
marks on the glass ceramic surface that are very difficult to remove.
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.

Care and maintenance
To avoid risk of burns, allow the appliance to cool down before
cleaning.
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 they can damage
the surface.
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, lemon juice, descaler). Then wipe clean with a damp
cloth.
