Oven protective foil is not suitable for your hob.

Overview

The following table provides an overview of the most frequent kinds of damage:

Damage

Stains

Cause

Food spills

Unsuitable cleaning agents

Action

Remove spills immediately with a glass scraper.

Only use cleaning agents which are suitable for ceramic

Scratches Salt, sugar and sand

Rough pot and pan bases scratch the ceramic.

Discolouration Unsuitable cleaning agents

Blisters

Do not use the hob as a work surface or storage space.

Check your cookware.

Pan abrasion (e.g. aluminium)

Only use cleaning agents which are suitable for ceramic

Lift the pots and pans when moving them.

Sugar, food with a high sugar content Remove spills immediately with a glass scraper.

Environmental protection

Unpack the appliance and dispose of the packaging in an environmentally-responsible manner.

Environmental protection

This appliance is labelled in accordance with the

European Directive 2002/96/EU concerning used electrical and electronic appliances (WEEE – waste electrical and electronic equipment). The guideline determines the framework for the return and recycling of used appliances as applicable.

Tips for saving energy

Always use the right lid for the pan in question. Cooking without the lid requires four times as much energy.

Use pots and pans with even bases. Using cookware with uneven bases increases energy consumption.

The diameter of the base of your pot or pan should match the size of the hotplate. In particular, if pots that are too small are placed on the hotplate, energy is wasted. Please note:

Cookware manufacturers often specify the diameter of the top of the pan. This is usually bigger than the diameter of the base of the pan.

Use a small pan for small quantities of food. A larger, less full saucepan requires more energy.

Use only a little water when cooking. This saves energy. It also preserves vitamins and minerals in vegetables.

Switch to a lower heat setting as soon as possible.

Use the residual heat of the hob. For longer cooking times, you can switch the hotplate off 5 - 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
