Energy saving tips
For optimum results, it is advisable to:
• Use pots and pans with bottom width equal to
that of the cooking zone.
• Only use flat-bottomed pots and pans.
• When possible, keep pot lids on during cooking.
• Use a pressure cooker to to save even more
energy and time.
• Place the pot in the middle of the cooking zone
marked on the hob.
This appliance, has been designed, manufactured and marketed in conformity with the safety requirements
of “Low Voltage” Directive 2006/95/EC (replacing 73/23/EEC as amended) and protection requirements of
“EMC” Directive 2004/108/EC.

Before use
IMPORTANT: The cooking zones will not switch on if pots are not the right size.
Only use pots bearing the symbol “INDUCTION SYSTEM” (Figure opposite).
Place the pot on the required cooking zone before switching the hob on.
Existing pots and pans
Use a magnet to check if the pot is suitable for the induction hob: pots and pans are unsuitable if not
magnetically detectable.
- Make sure pots have a smooth bottom, otherwise they could scratch the hob. Check dishes.
- Never place hot pots or pans on the surface of the hob’s control panel. This could result in damage.

Cooking zone positioning
After switching the hob on, activate the required cooking zone by pressing the “+” circular button and
place the pot on the zone.
To increase the power level, push the '+' button. To decrease the poer level push the “-” button.
Deactivation of cooking zones
To switch off the cooking zone, press the corresponding “+” and “-” button for more than 3 seconds.
The cooking zone switches off and, if still hot, the letter “H” appears on the zone display.
Instructions for use
Control panel lock
This function locks the controls to prevent accidental activation of the hob. To activate the control panel
lock, switch the hob on and press the Timer button for three seconds; an acoustic signal and a luminous
indicator near the padlock symbol signal activation. The control panel is locked except for the switching
off function. To deactivate the control lock, repeat the activation procedure. The luminous dot goes off and
the hob is active again.
The presence of water, liquid spilled from pots or any objects resting on the button below the symbol can
accidentally activate or deactivate the control panel lock.
The timer can be used to set the cooking time for a maximum of 99 minutes (1 hour and 39
minutes) for all the cooking zones.
Select the cooking zone to be used with the timer, press the timer and a beep signals the function
(see figure). The display shows “00” and the LED indication comes on. The Timer value can be decreased
and increased by keeping the slider function “+” and “-” buttons pressed. When the set time has elapsed, an
acoustic signal sounds and the cooking zone switches off automatically. To deactivate the timer, keep the
Timer button pressed for at least 3 seconds.
To set the timer for another zone, repeat the above steps. The timer display always shows the timer for the
selected zone or the shortest timer.
To modify or deactivate the timer, press the cooking zone selection button for the timer in question.
Residual heat indicator.
The hob is fitted with a residual heat indicator for each cooking zone. These indicators alert the
user when cooking zones are still hot.
If the display shows “H”, the cooking zone is still hot. If the residual heat indicator of a given
cooking zone is lit, that zone can be used, for example, to keep a dish warm or to melt butter.
When the cooking zone cools down, the display goes off.
Incorrect or missing pot indicator.
If you are using a pot that is not suitable, not correctly positioned or not of the correct dimensions
for your induction hob, the message “no pot” will appear in the display (see figure at side). If no
pot is detected within 60 seconds, the hob switches off.
Fast boil function (Booster where it is available)
This function, only present on some cooking zones, makes it possible to exploit the hob’s maximum power
(for example to bring water to the boil very quickly).
To activate the function, press the “+” button until “P” appears on the display. After 5 minutes’ use of the
booster function, the appliance automatically sets the zone to level 9.
Power management (Function where it is available)
Thanks to the “Power management” function, the user can set the maximum power the hob can reach, as
This setting is possible at any time and is maintained until the next change.
By setting the required maximum power, the hob automatically adjusts distribution in the various cooking
zones, ensuring that this limit is never exceeded; with the advantage of also being able to manage all the
zones simultaneously, but without overload problems.
4 maximum power levels are available and showed on display: 2.5 – 4.0 – 6.0 – 7.2 kW (7.2 kW is
considered as max power of cooktop)
At the time of purchase, the hob is set to maximum power
After plugging the appliance into the electrical socket, in the first 60 seconds it is possible to set the
required power level by running the following points:
Instructions for use
Control panel
Press the Power Management button to confirm
the previous step
The display shows
Press to set the chosen level amongst
the different options available
The light comes on together with the in-use
lights for the individual cooking zones
Press the Power Management button to confirm
the previous step
The display shows the set level which
flashes for approximately 2 seconds; after
which the hob emits an acoustic signal
and then turns itself off; it is now ready
for use.
Press for approximately 3 seconds
In case of an error when setting the power, the symbol
appears in the middle and an acoustic signal
sounds for about 5 seconds. In this case repeat the configuration procedure from the beginning. If the error
occurs again, contact the After-Sales Service.
During normal use, if the user tries to increase the maximum available power level when reached, the level
of the zone in use flashes twice and an acoustic signal sounds.
To obtain a higher power in that zone, it is necessary to manually decrease the power level of one or more
already active cooking zones.
Flexible zone
This function can be used to combine two zones and manage them as one single cooking zone. It is perfect
for oval, rectangular and elongated pans (with maximum base dimensions of 40x23 cm). After swiching on
the hob, press the key
: level “0” is shown on the displays of the two cooking zones; both luminous
dots next to the level number are lit, indicating selection of a single zone. To change the power level, move
your finger along the slide touchscreen: the number inside the circle increases/decreases as your finger
slides up/down the tuchscreen, ranging from a min. setting of 1 to a max. of 9. To deactivate the flexible
zone function, press the key: the zones revert to functioning singly. To swetch the cooking zone off, press
The booster power level and SENSOR function cannot be used on the same zone when the flexible zone
function is in use. If the timer is set, it will be displayed alongside the hotplate display at the top.
- Do not use steam cleaners.
- Before cleaning, make sure the cooking zones are switched off and that the residual heat indicator
(“H”) is not displayed.
IMPORTANT: Do not use abrasive sponges or scouring pads. Their use could eventually ruin the glass.
After each use, clean the hob (when it is cool) to remove any deposits and stains due to food residuals.
Sugar or foods with a high sugar content damage the hob and must be immediately removed.
Salt, sugar and sand could scratch the glass surface.
Use a soft cloth, absorbent kitchen paper or a specific hob cleaner (follow the Manufacturer’s
Troubleshooting guide
Read and follow the instructions given in the section “Instructions for use”.
Check that the electricity supply has not been shut off.
Dry the hob thoroughly after cleaning it.

Noises made by the hob
Induction hobs can make whistling or crackling sounds during normal operation, these actually come from
the pots and pans as a result of the characteristics of the bottoms (for example, bottoms made of several
layers of material, or uneven bottoms). These noises vary depending on the pots and pans used and the
amount of food they contain, and are not indicative of a defect of any kind.
In addition, the induction hob is equipped with an internal cooling system to control the temperature of
electronic parts; as a result, during operation and for several minutes after the hob has been switched off,
the noise of the cooling fan will be audible. This is perfectly normal and indeed essential for proper
functioning of the appliance.
