Before using your New Hob
Read this guide, taking special note of the ‘Safety Warnings’ section.
Remove any protective film that may still be on your ceramic hob.
Using the Touch Controls
The controls respond to touch, so you don’t need to apply any pressure.
Use the ball of your finger, not its tip.
You will hear a beep each time a touch is registered.
Make sure the controls are always clean, dry, and that there is no object (e.g.
a utensil or a cloth) covering them. Even a thin film of water may make the
controls difficult to operate.
Choosing the right Cookware
Do not use cookware with jagged edges or a curved base.
Make sure that the base of your pan is smooth, sits flat against the glass, and is the
same size as the cooking zone. Always centre your pan on the cooking zone.
Always lift pans off the ceramic hob – do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.
Using your Hob
To start cooking
1. Touch the ON/OFF
key, all the indicators show “– “
2. Place a suitable pan on the cooking zone that you
wish to use. Make sure the bottom of the pan and
the surface of the cooking zone are clean and dry.
3. Select the heating zone you wish to use. The
indicator next to the key will flash “5”. (This is the
default power level when switching on a zone)
4. Adjust the heat setting as required by touching the “Slider”
• If you don’t choose a heat setting within 1 minute, the
Induction hob will automatically switch off. You will

Beware of hot surfaces
When “H” is displayed:
the cooking zone is too hot to touch. It will
disappear when the surface has cooled down to a safe temperature. It can also be
used as an energy saving function if you want to heat further pans, use the
hotplate that is still hot.
Using the Extendable Zone Function
Where fitted, an extendablel zone is indicated by dotted lines on the cross.
You can also refer to page 8 for details where a single zone will show a single power
rating (e.g. ‘1200W’) and an extendable zone will show a dual rating (e.g. 1100 / 2200W)
An extendable zone consists of 2 circuits - the center zone and the outer zone. It can be
used in the following modes:
• A: Center Zone – only first heating unit is turned on
• B: Extended Zone (Center + Outer) – Both first and second heating circuits
are turned on
Upon selecting the cooking zone, only the center zone will be turned ON. To activate
the outer zone:

Cooking Guidelines
Take care when frying as the oil and fat heat up very quickly. At extremely high
temperatures oil and fat will ignite spontaneously and this can present a serious
fire risk.
Cooking Tips
When food comes to the boil, reduce the power setting.
Using a lid will reduce cooking times and save energy by retaining the heat.
Minimise the amount of liquid or fat to reduce cooking times.
Start cooking on a high setting and reduce the setting when the food has
heated through.
Simmering, cooking rice
• Simmering occurs below boiling point, at around 85C̊, when bubbles are just rising
occasionally to the surface of the cooking liquid. It is the key to delicious soups and
tender stews because the flavours develop without overcooking the food. You
should also cook egg-based and flour thickened sauces below boiling point.
• Some tasks, including cooking rice by the absorption method, may require a
setting higher than the lowest setting to ensure the food is cooked properly in the
time recommended.
Searing steak
To cook juicy flavoursome steaks:
1. Stand the meat at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.
2. Heat up a heavy-based frying pan.
3. Brush both sides of the steak with oil. Drizzle a small amount of oil into the hot pan
and then lower the meat onto the hot pan.
4. Turn the steak only once during cooking. The exact cooking time will depend on the
thickness of the steak and how cooked you want it. Times may vary from about 2 – 8
minutes per side. Press the steak to gauge how cooked it is – the firmer it feels the
more ‘well done’ it will be.
5. Leave the steak to rest on a warm plate for a few minutes to allow it to relax and
become tender before serving.
For stir-frying
1. Choose a ceramic compatible flat-based wok or a large frying pan.
2. Have all the ingredients and equipment ready. Stir-frying should be quick. If cooking
large quantities, cook the food in several smaller batches.
3. Preheat the pan briefly and add two tablespoons of oil.
4. Cook any meat first, put it aside and keep warm.
5. Stir-fry the vegetables. When they are hot but still crisp, turn the cooking zone to a
lower setting, return the meat to the pan and add your sauce.
6. Stir the ingredients gently to make sure they are heated through.
7. Serve immediately.
