Environmental protection and saving energy

Environmental protection and saving energy

3.1 Disposing of packaging

The packaging materials are environmentally compatible and can be recycled.

Sort the individual components by type and dispose of them separately.

3.2 Saving energy

If you follow these instructions, your appliance will use less energy.

Select the cooking zone to match the size of your pan. Centre the cookware on the hob.

Use cookware whose base diameter is the same diameter as the hotplate.

Tip: 

Cookware manufacturers often give the upper diameter of the saucepan. It is often larger than the base diameter.

¡

Unsuitable cookware or incompletely covered cooking zones consume a lot of energy.

Cover saucepans with suitable lids.

¡

Cooking without a lid consumes far more energy.

Lift lids as infrequently as possible.

¡

When you lift a lid, a lot of energy escapes.

Using a glass lid

¡

You can see into the pan through a glass lid without having to lift it.

Use pots and pans with flat bases.

¡

Uneven bases increase energy consumption.

Use cookware suited to the quantity of food.

¡

Large items of cookware containing little food need more energy to heat up.

Cook with little water.

¡

The more water contained in cookware, the more energy is required to heat it up.

Turn down to a lower heat setting early on. Use a suitable ongoing cooking setting to continue cooking.

¡

If you continue cooking with an ongoing cooking setting that is too high, you'll waste energy

Take advantage of the hob's residual heat. With longer cooking times switch off the hotplate

5-10 minutes before the end of cooking.

¡

Unused residual heat increases energy consumption.

4.1 Hotplates

You can find an overview of the different activations of the hotplates here.

If you operate the activations, the relevant displays light up.

If you switch on a hotplate, it will switch to the setting last selected.

Hotplate

Single-circuit hotplate

Dual-circuit hotplate

Activating and deactivating

Turn the hotplate switch to the right until . Select the heat setting.

Deactivating: Turn the hotplate switch to 0 and reset.

Never turn the hotplate switch past the symbol to

0.

Notes

¡

Dark areas in the glow pattern of the hotplate are part of the technical design. They do not affect the functionality of the hotplate.

¡

The hotplate regulates the temperature by switching the heat on and off. The heat may also switch on and off when on the highest setting.

This protects easily damaged components from overheating.

The appliance is protected from electrical overload.

Better cooking results are achieved.

¡

With multi-circuit hotplates, the heating of the inner filament circuits and the heating of the activations may switch on and off at different times.

Combi-cooking zone

The combi-cooking zone allows you to combine the two single-circuit hotplates with the bridge heating element. The hotplates can also be operated independently of each other.

Suitability

Small roaster

Small teppanyaki.

Large roaster

Large teppanyaki

Large grill plate

The small extended cooking zone (1 and 3) and the single-circuit hotplate (2) can also be operated independently with different heat settings. This produces different temperature areas, for example for the large roaster, the teppanyaki or the grill plate.

With the small extended cooking zone you can fry one food while simultaneously using the single-circuit hotplate to keep another warm.

Tip: 

Suitable cookware is available from customer service or our online-shop.

4.2 Hotplate display and residual heat indicator

The hob has a hotplate display and a residual heat indicator. The display lights up when a hotplate is warm.
