HOW TO USE YOUR HOB
Before first Use
Before cooking for the first time the ceramic glass has to be
cleaned. Remove any removable labels and protective sheeting.
Place a saucepan of water on each of the front hotplates and
switch them on high for at least 30 minutes. After 30 minutes switch
the front hotplates off, place a saucepan of water on each of the
rear hotplates and the central hotplate (if present). Switch them on
high for at least 30 minutes. This procedure is necessary in order to
evaporate any protective oils and humidity that may have collected
during the manufacturing process and will enable the electronic
control circuits to operate properly.
Pot sizes
The pot sizes stated in the table below are suitable for your electric
hob. Solid pots and pans with flat bottoms are recommended for
efficient cooking.

PRACTICAL COOKING ADVICE
For best results and energy saving, only use pans suitable for
electric cooking:
· The bottom of the pan must be very thick and perfectly flat;
before placing on the hotplate, make sure that the pan, as well
as the hotplate itself, is perfectly clean and dry.
· To avoid scratching of the ceramic glass surface,never use castiron pans or pans with a rough bottom.
· To avoid wasting energy, make sure that the diameter of the pan
bottom is 20mm bigger than the circle marked on the hotplate.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Switch off your appliance before cleaning.
The ceramic glass should be regularly cleaned, preferably
immediately after each use, once the residual heat warnings have
switched off.
Smudges from pans with an aluminum bottom can be easily
cleaned off with a cloth dampened in vinegar.
Remove any burnt residues immediately after cooking, rinse with
water and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Never use abrasive or corrosive detergents, cleaning powders,
oven sprays, spot-removers, steel wool or scourers.
DO NOT use a steam cleaner to clean the appliance.
