(Important safety
:Warning – Risk of deflagration!
Accumulation of unburned gas in an enclosed
area carries a risk of deflagration. Do not
subject the appliance to draughts. These
might blow out the burners. Carefully read the
instructions and warnings on the operation of
gas burners.

: Warning – Risk of poisoning!
The kitchen will become hot and humid and
combustion products produced when this gas
appliance is used. Make sure the kitchen is
well ventilated, particularly when the hob is in
operation: either keep the natural ventilation
apertures open, or install a ventilation system
(extractor hood). Intense prolonged use of the
appliance may require additional or more
effective ventilation: open a window or
increase the power of the ventilation system.
: Warning – Risk of burns!
The burners and their immediate vicinity get
very hot. Never touch the hot surfaces.
Keep children under 8 years old well away
from this appliance.
of burns!
If the
liquefied gas bottle is not upright,
liquefied propane/butane can enter the
appliance. Intense darting flames may
therefore escape from the burners.
Components may become damaged and
start to leak over time so that gas escapes
uncontrollably. Both can cause burns.
Always use liquefied gas bottles in an
upright position.

short cooking process must be supervised
without interruption.

Additional wok grid
Only suitable for use on wok
burners. Use cookware with a
rounded base.
To extend the service life of the
appliance, we recommend using
the additional wok grid.
Switching on manually
1. Press the control knob for the selected burner and
turn it anticlockwise to the highest power setting.
2. Hold an igniter or a naked flame (such as a lighter or
a match) against the burner.
Automatic ignition
If the hob has automatic ignition (ignition plugs):
1. Press the control knob for the selected burner and

Only suitable for use on the
smallest burner. Use cookware
with a diameter of less than
12 cm.
Simmer plate
This accessory part is only suitable for simmering. It can be
used with the economy burner
or the standard-output burner. If
your hob has several standardoutput burners, we recommend
placing the simmer plate on the
rear or front-right standard-output burner.
Place the accessory component
with the projections facing
upwards on the holder; never
place it directly on the burner.
Simmer cap
Only use the burner for cooking
with minimal power. Remove
the economy burner and
replace it with the simmer cap.
Always place cookware on the
pan support, never directly on
the simmer cap.

2. Release the control knob.
3. Turn the control knob to the required position.
If the burner does not ignite, switch it off and repeat the
steps described above. This time, hold the control knob
down for longer (up to 10 seconds).
: Warning – Risk of deflagration!
If the flame does not ignite after 15 seconds, switch off
the burner and open a window or the door to the room.
Wait at least one minute before switching the burner on
Note: It is important to keep the appliance clean. If the
ignition plugs are dirty, this may cause ignition
problems. Clean the ignition plugs regularly with a
small, non-metallic brush. Take care to prevent the
ignition plugs from suffering any heavy knocks.
Safety system
Your hob is equipped with a safety system
(thermocouple) that cuts off the gas when the burners
are accidentally switched off.
To ensure that this device is active:
1. Switch on the burner as usual.
2. Without releasing the control knob, press and hold it
down firmly for 4 seconds after lighting the flame.
Switching off a burner
Turn the corresponding control knob clockwise to the 0
A few seconds after the burner is switched off, a sound
(thud) will be produced. This is not a fault - this means
that the safety device is no longer operating.
It is normal to hear a soft whistling noise while the
burner is operating.
When first used, it is normal for the burner to give off
odours. This does not pose any risk and does not
indicate a malfunction. They will disappear in time.
Cooking pans
An orange-coloured flame is normal. This is caused by
the presence of dust in the atmosphere, spilt liquids, etc.
If the burner flames are accidentally blown out, switch
off the burner operating control knob and do not try to
relight it for at least 1 minute.

Precautions for use
The following advice is intended to help you save
energy and prevent pan damage:
Use pans which are the
right size for each burner.
Do not use small pans on
large burners. The flame
must not touch the sides of
the pan.
Do not use damaged pans,
which do not sit evenly on
the hob. Pans may tip over.
Only use pans with a thick,
flat base.
Do not cook without using
a lid and make sure the lid
is properly fitted. This
wastes energy.
Always centre the pan over
the burner, not to one side.
Otherwise it could tip over.
Do not place large pans on
the burners near the
control knobs. These may
be damaged by the very
high temperatures.
Place the pans on the pan
supports, never directly on
the burner.
Make sure that the pan
supports and burner caps
are correctly positioned
before using the appliance.
Pans should be placed on
the hob carefully.
Do not strike the hob and
do not place excessive
weight on it.
Never use two burners or
heat sources to heat one
single pan.
Do not use grill pans,
earthenware casserole
dishes, etc. for a long
period of time on
maximum power.
Cleaning and maintenance
2Cleaning and maintenance
Cl eani ng and mai nt enance
Once the appliance is cool, use a sponge to clean it
with soap and water.
After each use, clean the surface of the respective
burner parts once they have cooled down. If any
residue is left (baked-on food, drops of grease etc.),
however little, it will become stuck to the surface and
more difficult to remove later. The holes and grooves
must be clean for the flame to ignite properly.
The movement of some pans may leave metal residue
on the pan supports.
Clean the burners and pan supports using soapy water
and scrub with a non-wire brush.
If the pan supports are fitted with rubber rests, ensure
that these are also cleaned. The rests may come loose
and the pan support may scratch the hob.
Always dry the burners and pan supports completely.
Water droplets or damp patches on the hob at the start
of cooking may damage the enamel.
After cleaning and drying the burners, make sure the
burner caps are correctly positioned on the diffuser.
Do not remove the control knobs when cleaning the
appliance. The appliance may be damaged if
moisture finds its way inside.
Do not use steam cleaners. This could damage the
Never use abrasive products, steel scourers, sharp
implements, knives, etc. to remove bits of hardened
food from the hob.
Do not use knives, scrapers or similar implements to
clean the point where the glass meets the burner
trims, the metal frames or the glass/aluminium
panels, if fitted.
Always clean off any liquid as soon as it is spilt. This will
prevent food remains from sticking to the hob surface
and you will save yourself any unnecessary effort.
Never slide pans across the glass surface, as you may
scratch it. In addition, try not to drop heavy or sharp
objects on the glass. Never strike any part of the hob.
Grains of sand that may come from cleaning fruits and
vegetables will scratch the glass surface.
Melted sugar, or foods which contain a lot of sugar
which may have spilt, should be cleaned off the hob
immediately, using the glass scraper.

Rely on the professionalism of the manufacturer. You
can therefore be sure that the repair is carried out by
trained service technicians who carry original spare
parts for your appliances.
The packaging of your appliance has been
manufactured using only the materials which are strictly
necessary to guarantee efficient protection during
transport. These materials are 100% recyclable, thus
reducing the environmental impact. You can also
contribute to caring for the environment by following the
advice below:
Dispose of the packaging in the appropriate
recycling bin.
Before you get rid of an old appliance, make sure
you disable it. Contact your local authority to find out
the address of your nearest recycling centre to
dispose of your appliance.
Do not pour used oil down the sink. Collect it in a
sealed container and take it to an appropriate
collection point or, failing that, place it in the rubbish
bin (it will end up in a controlled dump; this is
probably not the best option, but it will avoid
contaminating ground water).
