Suitable Kitchenware
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. Maunfacturers 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.
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.
• Switch off the cooking zones before the end of the cooking time to
use the residual heat for keeping food warm or for melting
• The base of the pot should have the same size as the cooking
• Using a pressure cooker shortens the cooking times by up to 50%.

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.
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.
