result in shattering of the glass.
How to avoid damage to the appliance
• Do not use the cooking area as a worktop or
storage space.
• Please be careful the edges when moving pots and
pans around.
• Do not have the cooking zones on with empty pans,
or with no pots or pans on them.
• Ceramic glass is very tough, and impervious to
sharp temperature changes, but is not unbreakable.
It can be damaged if particularly hard or sharp
objects fall on to it.
• Be very cautious if using pots made of cast iron, or
other pots with rough edges or burrs. Moving these
can cause scratches on glass.
• If sugar or a mixture containing sugar falls onto a
hot cooking zone and melts, remove immediately,
while still hot. If left to cool down, it may damage the
surface when removed.
Important: There is a risk of burning yourself
when the glass scraper is used on a hot
cooking zone!
• Keep objects or materials liable to melt away
from the ceramic glass surface, for example,
plastic utensils, aluminium foil, or cooking wraps.
If any other materials or foodstuffs have melted
on the ceramic glass surface, these should also
be cleaned away immediately.
WARNING: Unattended cooking on a hob with
fat or oil can be dangerous and may result in
NEVER try to extinguish a fire with water, but
switch off the appliance and then cover flame
e.g. with a lid or a fire blanket.
WARNING: Danger of fire : do not store items
on the cooking surfaces.
Disposal of old appliances
WARNING: Before disposing of old appliances
please make them inoperable so that they cannot
be the source of danger.
To do this, have a qualified person disconnect
the appliance from the house circuitry.
To protect the environment, it is important that worn
out appliances are disposed of in the correct manner.
• The appliance must not be disposed of with
household rubbish.
• You can obtain information about collection dates or
public refuse disposal sites from your local Council
or Environmental Health Office.
Note: Moisture coming from or appearing around
The moisture could be coming from the wood and
hob when the hob is operated initially or after long
time of no operation.
This is not a fault with the Hob.
Functionality of Cooking Zones
An induction coil is beneath the ceramic glass cooking surface.
This generates magnetic fields, which act directly on the base of the
pots and pans compare as with other heating methods, first heating
the ceramic glass. This means that the base of the pan is
immediately heated up, which saves time and energy.
Since the heat required for cooking is generated directly in the base
of the pan, the cooking zone itself hardly warms up. It only receives
the reflected heat from the pan base.
If there is no pot or pan on the cooking zone
there is no energy transfer (heating up) and
therefore prevents the cooking zones being
switched on accidentally.
Special Notes on Induction Cooking Zones
• Scientific studies have shown that patients who have implanted
pacemakers are not normally affected or put at risk by our
induction cooking zones.
The distance between the body and the cooking zone should,
however, never be less than 30 cm from the induction burners.
• Electromagnetic fields can affect electronic circuits and interfere
with portable transistor radios.
• Do not put magnetically rechargeable objects (e.g., credit cards,
cassettes) on the ceramic glass surface while one or more
induction cooking zones are in use!
• Metallic objects such as knives, forks, spoons and lids should not
be placed on the hob surface since they can get hot.
Some cookware can produce noises when used on induction
cooking zones. This is not a fault in the hob and its function will
not be impaired in any way as a result.
Suitable Kitchenware for Induction Cooking
Pots and Pans
• In principle all pots and pans with magnetic bases are suitable.
These are steel, steel-enamel as well as cast-iron pots and pans.
• High grade steel pans with a mixed metal base (sandwich base,
e.g. Tefal with an aluminium/copper base) are suitable for
induction only if the manufacturer has expressly marked them as
such. In that case they have a magnetic material in the base.
• If you wish to use a special type of pan (e.g. a pressure cooker,
simmering pan, wok, etc.), please observe the manufacturer's
instructions and do not use very thin pan.
Suitability Test
If you are not sure if a pot or pan is suitable for cooking or frying on
the induction cooking zone you can check this as follows:
• Place a pot filled with a little water (3-5 mm) on the cooking
zone.Switch the cooking zone to full power (switch setting 9).
Caution: The pan base of suitable kitchenware heats up
within a few seconds! Water should rapidly boil.
• You can also check this with a magnet. If it remains fixed to the
base the pan is suitable for induction cooking zones.
Suitable Kitchenware
Pan Size
Up to a certain limit the induction cooking zone adapts itself to the
size of the pan base diameter. However, the pan base diameter
must be of a minimum size, depending on the size of the cooking
• Optimum Induction Cooking Zone.
Diameter of the cooking zone 15 cm:
Diameter of the pan base at least 12 cm
Diameter of the cooking zone 18 cm:
Diameter of the pan base at least 15 cm
Diameter of the cooking zone 21 cm:
Diameter of the pan base at least 18 cm
Automatic Pan Sensing in induction
The induction cooking zone does not function when unsuitable pans
are used.
If the cooking zone is switched on without a suitable pan on it
the cooking zone switches itself off automatically.
Pots and pans
The better the pot, the better the cooking results.
• You can recognize good pots and pans by their bases. The base
should be as thick and flat as possible.
• When buying new pots and pans, pay particular attention to the
diameter of the base. Manufacturers often only state the diameter
of the rim.
• Pots with aluminum, or copper bases can cause metallic
discolouring on the ceramic glass surface which is very difficult or
impossible to remove.
• Be very careful when using cast iron pots or pots with damaged
bases which are rough and or have burrs on them. Scratches can
occur if they are slid across the surface.
• When cold, pot bases are normally bowed slightly in wards
(concave). They should never be bowed outwards (convex).
• If you use special pots and pans (e.g., a pressure cooker,
simmering pan, wok etc.) please observe the manufacturer’s
General information
• The base should always be clean and dry.
• In order to avoid ugly scratches on the ceramic glass cooking
surface, do not slide pots and pans around but lift them up instead
when changing positions.
• Scratches can result from grains of sand (e.g., after washing out
vegetables) which are dragged with the pot across the cooking
• Always use large pots for dishes with lots of liquid so that nothing
can boil over.
Suitable Kitchenware
Tips on saving energy
You will save valuable energy by observing the following points:
• Always position pots and pans before you switch on the cooking
• Dirty cooking zones and pot bases increase the power
• Whenever possible, always have the lid firmly placed on the pots
and pans so that they are completely covered.
• The base of the pot had better being the same size as the cooking

Cleaning and care
The cleaning effort for induction ceramic glass cooking surfaces is
considerably less than for cooking surfaces with radiant heating:
- The induction cooking zone reacts faster to switching down and
off. Boiling over and burning of dishes is avoided to a large
- The temperatures on the ceramic glass surface are clearly lower
with induction cooking than with the conventional radiant heating
Since the heat is generated in the pan, food or foodstuffs
possibly on the glass ceramic surface are not burned in as
Important: Cleaning agents must not come into contact with
the hot ceramic glass surface! All cleaning agents must be
removed with plenty of clean water after cleaning because they
can have a caustic effect when the rings are next heated!
Do not use any aggressive cleaners such as grill or oven
sprays, coarse scourers or abrasive pan cleaners.
Clean the ceramic glass surface after each use when it is warm
to the touch or cold. This will avoid spillages becoming burned
on. Remove scale and water marks, fat spots and
discolouration with a metallic shimmer using a commercially
available ceramic glass or stainless steel cleaner.
Cleaning and Care
Light Soiling
1. Wipe the ceramic glass surface with a damp cloth and a little
cooktop cleaner.
2. Then rub dry with a clean cloth. Remnants of cleaner must not be
left on the surface.
3. Thoroughly clean the entire ceramic glass cooking surface once
a week with a commercially available ceramic glass or stainless
steel cleaner.
4. Then wipe the ceramic glass surface using plenty of clean water
and rub dry with a clean fluff-free cloth.
Stubborn Soiling
1. To remove food that has boiled over or stubborn splashes, use a
glass scraper.
2. Place the glass scraper at an angle to the ceramic glass surface.
3. Remove soiling by sliding the blade across the area.
You can obtain glass scrapers and ceramic glass cleaners
which are suitable for glass ceramic, e.g. CERA CLEAN, cerafix, sidol for ceran+steel, from your local Hardware Centre.
Problem Soils
1. Remove sugar, melted plastic, aluminium foil or other meltable
materials with a glass scraper immediately and while still hot.
Important: There is a risk of burning yourself when the
glass scraper is used on a hot cooking zone!
2. Then clean the hob normally when it has cooled down.
If the cooking zone on which something has melted has already
cooled down, warm it up again for cleaning.
Scratches or dark marks on the ceramic glass surface, caused
by a pan base with sharp edges, cannot be removed. However,
they do not impair the function of the hob.
