ENERGY SAVING TIPS
Make the most of your hot plate’s residual heat by switching it off a few
minutes before you finish cooking.
The base of your pot or pan should cover the hot plate completely; a
container that is smaller than the hot plate will cause energy to be wasted.
Cover your pots and pans with tight-fitting lids while cooking and use
as little water as possible. Cooking with the lid off will greatly increase
energy consumption.
Use only flat-bottomed pots and pans.
DECLARATION OF CONFORMITY
This appliance meets the Ecodesign requirements set out in European
Regulation n. 66/2014, in conformity to the European standard
EN 60350‑2.
NOTE

ACCESSORIES
POTS AND PANS
Only use pots and pans made from ferromagnetic
OK
NO
material which are suitable for use with induction hobs:
• enamelled steel
• cast iron
• special pots and pans in stainless steel, suitable
for induction cooking
To determine whether a pot is suitable, check for the
symbol (usually
stamped on the bottom). A magnet may be used to check whether pots are
magnetic.
The quality and the structure of the pot base can alter cooking performance.
Some indications for the diameter of the base do not correspond to the
actual diameter of the ferromagnetic surface.
Some pots and pans have only a part of the bottom in ferromagnetic
material, with parts in another material that is not suitable for induction
cooking. These areas may heat up at different levels or with lower
temperatures. In certain cases, where the bottom is made mainly of
non-ferromagnetic materials, the hob might not recognise the pan and
therefore not switch on the cooking zone.
Empty pots or pots with a thin base
Do not use empty pots or pans when the hob is on. The hob is equipped with
an internal safety system that constantly monitors the temperature, activating
the “automatic off“ function where high temperatures are detected. When
used with empty pots or pots with thin bases, the temperature may rise very
quickly, and the “automatic off“ function may not be triggered immediately,
damaging the pan or the hob surface. If this occurs, do not touch anything,
and wait for all components to cool down.
If any error messages appear, call the service centre.
Minimum diameter of pot/pan base for the different cooking areas
To ensure that the hob functions properly, the pot must cover one or
more of the reference points indicated on the surface of the hob, and
must be of a suitable minimum diameter.
Always use the cooking zone that best corresponds to the diameter of
the bottom of the pan.
100 mm
To ensure optimum efficiency, always use pots and pans with a flat bottom
that distributes the heat evenly. If the bottom is uneven, this will affect
power and heat conduction.

ADAPTER FOR POTS/PANS UNSUITABLE FOR INDUCTION
Using this accessory makes it possible to use pots and pans that are not
suitable for induction hobs. It is important to bear in mind that using it
affects efficiency and consequently the time needed to heat food. Its
use should be limited because the temperatures reached on its surface
depend significantly on the pot/pan used, its flatness and the type of
food being cooked. Using a pot or pan with a smaller diameter than the
adapter disc may cause heat to build up that is not transmitted to the
pot or pan and this could blacken both the hob and the disc. Adapt the
diameter of your pots/pans and the hob to the diameter of the adapter.
FIRST TIME USE

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
!
WARNING
• Do not use steam cleaning equipment.
• 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 as they may damage
the glass.
• After each use, clean the hob (when it is cool) to remove any deposits
and stains from food residue.
• A surface that is not kept suitably clean may reduce the sensitivity of
control panel buttons.
• Use a scraper only if residues are stuck to the hob. Follow the scraper
manufacturer's instructions to avoid scratching the glass.
• Sugar or foods with a high sugar content can 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 special hob cleaner (follow
the Manufacturer’s instructions).
• Spills of liquid in the cooking zones can cause the pots to move or vibrate.
• After cleaning the hob, dry thoroughly.
If the iXelium™ logo appears on the glass, the hob has been treated with
iXelium™ technology, an exclusive Whirlpool finish which ensures perfect
cleaning results, as well as keeping the surface of the hob shiny for longer.
To clean iXelium™ hobs, follow these recommendations:
• Use a soft cloth (microfibre is best) dampened with water or with
everyday glass cleaning detergent.
• For best results, leave a wet cloth on the glass hob surface for a few
minutes.

SOUNDS PRODUCED DURING OPERATION
Induction hobs may whistle or creak during normal operation.
These noises actually come from the cookware and are linked to the
characteristics of the pan bottoms (for example, when the bottoms are
made from different layers of material or are irregular).
These noises may vary according to the type of cookware used and to
the amount of food it contains and are not the symptom of something
wrong.
