Installation
Selection of installation equipment
1.
Cut out the work surface according to the sizes shown in the drawing. For the purpose
of installation and use, a minimum of 50mm space shall be preserved around the hole.
Be sure that the thickness of the work surface is at least 30mm. Please select
heat-resistant work surface material to avoid larger deformation caused by the heat
radiation from the appliance. Installation as shown below:
A(mm)
B(mm)
C(mm)
D
E
760
50 mini
30 mini
Air intake
Air exit 10 mm
Under any circumstances, make sure the hob is well ventilated and the air inlet and outlet
are not blocked. Ensure the hob is in good working condition as shown above.
Note: The safety distance between the hotplate and the cupboard above the
hotplate should be at least 760mm.

Before locating the fixing brackets
The unit should be placed on a stable, smooth surface (use the packaging). Do not apply
force onto the controls protruding from the hob. Fix the hob on the work surface by screw
four brackets on the bottom of hob (see picture) after installation. Adjust the bracket position
to suit for different work surface’s thickness.
Connecting the hob to the mains power supply
The power supply should be connected in compliance with the relevant standard, or a
single-pole circuit breaker. The method of connection is shown below.
1. If the cable is damaged or needs replacing, this should be done by an authorized
technician using the proper tools, so as to avoid any accidents.
2. If the appliance is being connected directly to the mains supply, an omnipolar circuit
breaker must be installed with a minimum gap of 3mm between the contacts.

Cooking Guidelines
Take care when frying as the oil and fat heat up very quickly, particularly at high
power levels. At extremely high temperatures oil and fat will ignite spontaneously
and this presents a serious fire risk.
Cooking Tips
•
•
•
•
When food comes to boil, reduce the temperature setting.
Using a lid will reduce cooking times and save energy by retaining the heat.
Minimize the amount of liquid or fat to reduce cooking times.
Start cooking on high setting and reduce the setting when the food has heated through.
Simmering
•
•
•
Simmering occurs below temperature around 85˚C. When bubbles are just rising
occasionally to the surface of the cooking liquid. It is the key to delicious soups and
tender stews because the flavour develops without overcooking the food.
You should also cook egg-based and flour-thickened sauces below boiling point.
Some tasks including cooking rice by the absorption method may require a setting
higher than the lowest setting to ensure the food is cooked properly in the time
recommended.
15
Searing steak
To cook juicy flavour steaks:
1. Defrost the meat at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.
2. Heat up a heavy-based frying pan.
3. Brush both sides of the steak with oil. Drizzle a small amount of oil into the hot pan and
then lower the meat onto the hot pan.
4. Turn the steak only once during cooking. The exact cooking time will depend on the
thickness of the steak and how cooked you want it. Times may vary from about 2 to 8
minutes per side. Press the steak to gauge how cooked it is – the firmer it feels the more
‘well done’ it will be.
5. Leave the steak to rest on a warm plate for a few minutes to allow it to relax and
become tender before serving.

4.
5.
6.
Choose a compatible flat-based wok or a large frying pan.
Have all the ingredients and equipment ready. Stir-frying should be quick. If cooking
large quantities, cook the food in several smaller batches.
Preheat the pan briefly and add two tablespoons of cooking oil.
Cook any meat firstly, put it aside and keeps it warm.
Stir-fry the vegetables. When they are hot but still crisp, turn the cooking zone to a lower
setting, return the meat to the pan and add your sauce.
Stir the ingredients gently to make sure they are heated through before serving.

Cleaning and Maintenance
What?
How?
Important!
Everyday soiling on
glass (fingerprints,
marks, stains left by
food or non-sugary
spillovers on the glass)
1. Switch off the power.
2. Apply a cooktop cleaner while the
glass is still warm. (Not hot!)
3. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean
cloth or paper towel.
4. Switch the power to the cooktop
back on.
Boil overs, melts, and
hot sugary spills on the
glass surface.
Remove these immediately palette
knife or razor blade scraper suitable
for glass cooktops, but beware of
hot cooking zone surfaces:
1. Switch off the power of the
cooktop from the wall socket.
2. Hold the blade or utensil at a 30°
angle and scrape the soiling or
spill to a cool area of the cooktop.
3. Clean the soiling or spill up with a
dish cloth or paper towel.
4. Follow steps 2 to 4 for “Everyday
soiling on glass” above.
1. Switch off the power of the
cooktop.
2. Soak up the spill.
3. Wipe the touch control area with
a clean damp sponge or cloth.
4. Wipe the area completely dry
with a paper towel.
5. Switch the power to the cooktop
back on.
 When the power is switched off, there
will be no ‘hot surface’ indication but
the cooking zone may still be hot! Take
extreme care.
 Heavy duty scourers, some nylon
scourers and harsh/abrasive cleaning
agents may scratch the glass. Always
read the label to check if the cleaner or
scourer used is suitable.
 Never leave cleaning residue on the
cooktop. The glass may become
stained.
 Remove stains left by melts and
sugary food or spillovers as soon as
possible. If left to cool on the glass,
they may be difficult to remove or even
permanently damage the glass
surface.
 Cut hazard: When the safety cover is
retracted, the blade in a scraper is
razor-sharp. Use with extreme care
and always store safely and out of
reach of children.
