Using the ceramic hob
Before first use
IMPORTANT: You should clean the ceramic hob surface (see
“Cleaning and maintenance” section).
o You should switch on one cooking zone at a time, for 5 minutes
at the maximum setting. This will help to eliminate any new
smell that exists and evaporate any humidity that has formed on
the heating elements during transit.
o Do not burn off more than one zone at once.
o You must place a saucepan filled half full with cold water on
each zone as you burn it off.
10
Touch controls
o All operations are performed by means of the touch controls that
can be found on the control panel.
o Each touch control has a visual display that corresponds to it.
Switching the hob top on
o Press the ON/OFF button (6) to switch on
the appliance.
o The hob will beep once and all of the
cooking zone indicators will light briefly, then go out.
o This means that the hob has entered stand-by mode.
Switching on a zone and setting a power level
IMPORTANT: A zone must be selected within 1 minute of switching
the hob on.
o Press the cooking zone plus
button (1) of the zone that you
want to use.
o Adjust the zone between power levels 1 and 9, using the plus
buttons (1). By holding down either of these buttons, the value
on the zone indicator will adjust up or down.
Switching off a zone
o Press the cooking zone minus
button (1) of the zone that you
want to switch off.
o Hold the button down until the
number in the cooking zone indicator reaches “0”. After a few
seconds, the zone will switch off automatically.
11
Switching off the hob
o Once you have switched off all of the
cooking zones, you should turn off the
hob.
o Press the ON/OFF button (6).
o It is possible to turn the hob off at any time by pressing the
ON/OFF button (6).
o The hob will switch off automatically after 1 minute, if none of
the zones are in use.
Using the dual zone burners
o You can use the inner section of both the dual
cooking zones on its own if a smaller heating
zone is needed.
o For a larger heating zone, press the relevant
dual zone activation button when the chosen
hob is already in use.
o To switch the dual heating zone off and return
to using just the inner section of the burner,
press the relevant dual zone activation button again.
IMPORTANT: Ensure that the size of the cooking pot is
considered when using the dual zone burners. The pot should
not be too small when both the zone sections are in use.
Locking the hob top
o The whole hob top can be locked by pressing the
safety lock button (5) whilst the appliance is
switched on.
o The timer display will show “L0” to indicate that the safety lock
feature has been activated.
o When the safety lock has been switched on, it will disable any of
the other buttons on the control panel, apart from the ON/OFF
button (6).
o To disable the safety lock feature, you should press the safety
lock button (5) again. The “L0” symbol will disappear from the
12
timer display and you are then able to adjust the power of any
zone on the hob top.
The hob timer
Your hob has a timer which will countdown a period of time. At the end
of the countdown period an audible signal will sound.
o Use the timer plus and minus buttons (2) to set the countdown
time.
o The timer display will show the countdown time that is being set.
o The timer display will increase in 1 minute intervals each time
the timer plus button is pressed.
o The timer display will decrease in 1 minute intervals each time
the timer minus button is pressed.
o If you press the timer plus and minus
simultaneously, the timer display will reset to 0.
buttons
(2)
Setting a countdown time
o Press the ON/OFF button (6) to switch on the appliance.
o Press the cooking zone plus button (1) of the zone that you
want to use.
o Adjust the zone between power levels 1 and 9, using the plus
and minus (1) buttons. By holding down either of these buttons,
the value on the zone indicator will adjust up or down.
o Set the countdown time that you require, using the timer plus
and minus (2) buttons.
o When the countdown time that you require appears on the timer,

audible sound and the hob will switch off completely.
IMPORTANT: The countdown timer can be used to control
individual cooking zones. You can repeat the steps outlined
above for each cooking zone to set a different time for
each zone.
Residual heat indicator
o After a zone is switched off, the corresponding
cooking zone indicator will show a flashing letter
“H”. This means that the temperature of the zone
is over 60°C and is therefore still high enough to
cause injury.
o When the temperature of the zone falls below 60°C, then the
letter “H” will go out.
o IMPORTANT: The residual heat indicator will disappear if the
mains supply to the product is cut.
o IT IS STILL POSSIBLE TO BURN YOURSELF ON A HOB
ZONE, EVEN WHEN THE TEMPERATURE OF IT HAS
DROPPED BELOW 60°C.
Safety cut-off
o If one or more of the cooking zones are accidentally left on, a
safety cut off will activate after a certain period of time. The
length of time depends on the power level that a zone or zones
have been set on.

o If more than one zone is operating when one of the zones
reaches its safety cut-off point, only the zone which has reached
its safety cut off point will switch off.

Hob guidelines
o The first few times the hob top is used, it may give off an acrid,
burning smell. This smell will disappear completely with repeated
use.
o The worktop is fitted with cooking areas of different diameter
and power.
o The positions where the heat will radiate from are clearly marked
on the hob top. The saucepans must be positioned exactly on
these zones for efficient heating to occur. Pans should have the
same diameter as the cooking zone that they are being used on.
o You should not use saucepans with rough bottoms, as this can
scratch the ceramic surface.
o Before use, make sure that the bottoms of the saucepans are
clean and dry.
o When cold, the bottom of the pans should be slightly concave, as
they expand when hot and lie flat on the surface of the hob. This
will allow the heat to transfer more easily.
o The best thickness for the bottom of the pans is 2 – 3 mm of
enamelled steel and 4 – 6 mm for stainless steel with sandwich
type bottoms.
o If these rules are not followed, then there will be a great loss of
heat and energy. Heat not absorbed by the saucepan, will spread
to the hob, frame and surrounding cabinets.
o Preferably cover pans with a lid to permit cooking at a lower
heat.
o Always cook vegetables and potatoes, etc. in as little water to
reduce cooking times.
o Food or liquid that has high sugar content may damage the hob
top if it comes into contact with the ceramic hob surface. Any
spillages should be wiped up immediately, however this may not
prevent the hob surface from becoming damaged.
o IMPORTANT: The ceramic hob surface is tough; however it is
not unbreakable and can be damaged. Especially if pointed or
hard objects are allowed to fall on it with some force.
15
o DO NOT USE THE HOB IF THE SURFACE BECOMES BROKEN
OR CRACKED. YOU SHOULD CONTACT THE CUSTOMER
CARE DEPARTMENT IMMEDIATELY.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning operations must only be carried out
when the hob is cool.
The appliance should be disconnected from your
mains supply before commencing any cleaning
process.
Cleaning the ceramic hob top
Any residues that are left on the hob top surface from cleaning
agents will damage it. You should remove any residues with
warm water mixed with a little washing up liquid.
Abrasive cleaners or sharp objects will damage the hob surface;
you should clean it using warm water mixed with a little washing
up liquid.
You may find it easier to clean some deposits whilst the hob
surface is still warm. However you should take care not to burn
yourself if cleaning the hob surface when it is still warm.
After each use
o Wipe the appliance over with a damp cloth.
o Dry the appliance by rubbing the surface with a clean cloth.
