Before the first use
Cleaning the cooktop
^ Remove any protective films.
^ Wash the removable parts of the gas
burner in a mild solution of warm
water and liquid dish soap.
^ Dry and reassemble the parts in the
correct order (see "Cleaning and
care").
^ Wipe the cooktop with a damp cloth
and dry thoroughly.
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight odor
the first time your new appliance is
heated.
The harmless odor will dissipate after a
short time and does not indicate a
faulty connection or appliance defect.
15
Operation
Fast-Ignition system
The appliance is equipped with a quick ignition system with
the following features:
– The control knob can be released once it is turned to the
largest flame symbol.
– If the flame goes out during use,
e.g. from a draft, the burner will automatically reignite.
If reignition is unsuccessful, the gas supply will
automatically be shut-off (see "Ignition safety control).
Control knobs
The control knob is used to turn on the burner and to regulate
the strength of the flame.

Operation
Turning on
When using the gas cooktop, an exhaust air extractor
hood or a room ventilation device (not recirculation) must
be used.
^ To light the burner, press the corresponding burner control
knob and turn it anti-clockwise to the largest flame symbol.
The ignition electrode "clicks" and ignites the gas.
Pressing a burner control knob automatically generates a
spark at all burners on the cooktop. This is normal and
does not indicate a faulty appliance.
^ If the burner has not ignited, turn the burner control knob to
"ß". Air out the room or wait at least 1 minute before
attempting to reignite.
^ If the burner does not ignite even at the second attempt,
turn the burner control knob to "ß" and see "Frequently
asked questions".
It may happen that a short re-ignition occurs while switching
on (1-2 x clicks) if the thermcouple is not yet sufficiently hot or
the flamegoes out on the thermcouple or , e.g. from a draft.
17
Operation
Regulating
The flame should be regulated so that it never protrudes
beyond the pot. Since the outer part of the gas flame is much
hotter than the center of the flame, the flame tips should
remain under the base of the pot. Protruding flame tips give
off unnecessary heat into the air and can damage pot
handles and increase the risk of burning.
The burner can be continuously regulated between the
highest and lowest flame.
Switching off
^ Turn the burner control knob clockwise to "ß".
The gas supply is stopped and the flame goes out.
Do not turn the burner control knob clockwise beyond "ß".
18
Operation
Quick turn-off
All active burners are turned off by pressing the quick turn-off
f touch key.
^ Touch the f touch key.
The operating/residual heat indicator of the active burners
flashes.
Any set short time continues to run down if it is not assigned
to a burner.
If the short time is assigned to a burner, it is canceled.
The quick switch-off pilot light stays lit until all active burner
knobs are turned to "ß".
Operating/Residual heat indicator
The operating/residual heat indicator lights up as soon as the
burner is turned on and stays lit during use. If the appliance
is turned off, the indicator goes out briefly and then lights up
again if residual heat is still present.
While the residual heat indicator is lit, do not touch the gas
cooktop or place any heat sensitive objects on it. Risk of
burns and fire!
Flashing of the display indicates an error message. See
"Frequently asked questions".

21
Cookware
– Select the cookware to match the burner:
large diameter = large burner
small diameter = small burner.
– Using oversized pans may cause the flames to spread out
and damage the surrounding countertop or other
countertop appliances. The proper pan size will also
improve efficiency.
– Pots with a smaller diameter than the pan support and pots
that do not sit securely (without wobbling) are hazardous
and should not be used.
– Unlike pans used on an electric cooktop, the bases do not
need to be even for good results.
– When buying pots and pans, keep in mind that it is
generally not the base diameter but the upper diameter
which is specified.
– Only use heat-resistant cookware.
– Thick pan bases will give more even results, as hot spots
are reduced due to better heat distribution.
Thin pan bases will conduct the heat faster but not as
evenly as thick pan bases. Stir the food frequently to
prevent burning.
– Always place the cookware on the grate. The cookware
must not be placed directly on the burner.
– Position the cookware on the grate so that it cannot tip
over. A minimum amount of wobbling can never be
completely ruled out.
– Do not use pots or pans with edge-supported bases.
22
Cookware
Wok ring
For added stability, especially for woks with round bases, use
the wok ring (supplied).
Make sure the wok ring is positioned correctly so that it sits
securely and cannot shift.
(See illustration.)
Combi insert
The combi insert must be used on the wok burner, if you use
– very small cookware. It sits securely and cannot tip over.
– very large cookware. Using the insert will prevent the
flames spreading and discoloring the cooktop and
damaging the surrounding countertop.
23
Energy saving tips
– If possible, cook in covered pots or pans. This prevents
unnecessary heat loss.
– Cook with less water.
– The cooking time can be significantly reduced by using a
pressure cooker.
– After cooking or frying, promptly set to a lower flame.
– Generally, wide / shallow pans will heat quicker and cook
more evenly than narrow / tall ones.
24
Safety devices
Ignition safety control
Your gas cooktop is equipped with an Ignition safety control.
This means that if the gas flame goes out, e.g. from a boilover
or a draft. If an attempt to reignite fails, the gas supply shuts
off. Any further escape of gas is prevented.
^ To reignite the burner turn the knob clockwise to "ß" and
then turn it on as usual.
Safety turn-off
If a burner is heated for an unusually long time (approx. 6
hours), it turns off automatically.
^ To reignite the burner turn the knob clockwise to "ß" and
then turn it on as usual.
Start-up lock
The start-up lock is activated when a burner is turned off. If it
is activated, the burners cannot be turned on and the timer is
disabled.
When the start-up lock is activated, the indicator light comes
on and LC appears on the timer display if you press a touch
control or press a burner control knob.
The start-up lock is deactivated if a power failure occurs.
Activating
^ Press both - and + touch controls at the same time until LC
appears on the timer display and a signal sounds.
Deactivating
^ Press both - and + touch keys at the same time until a
signal sounds.
25
Cleaning and care
,Never use a steam cleaner to clean this cooktop.
Pressurized steam could cause permanent damage to the
surface and to components.
Do not use any sharp or pointed objects which could
damage the seal between the frame and the countertop.
Keep the ignitor in the burner dry. If it gets wet it will not
spark.
Dry your cooktop thoroughly after cleaning it to prevent
lime deposits.
Spills containing salt or sugar should be cleaned immediately.
The surfaces of the burner parts and grates become
slightly duller over time. This is normal and does not
indicate any impairment of the material.
To better maintain your appliance avoid the following:
– cleaners containing soda, ammonia, thinners, or chlorides,
– cleaners containing descaling agents or lime removers,
– abrasive cleaners,
– stainless steel cleaners,
– dishwasher soap,
– caustic (oven) cleaners,
– scouring pads, steel wool, hard brushes,
– metal scrapers.
Glass cleaners may be used to clean the exterior.
However do not allow them to sit or "puddle", this can
cause damage to the surface. Remove the cleaner
promptly.
