General Safety
• The appliance and its accessible parts become hot during use.
Do not touch the heating elements.
• Do not operate the appliance by means of an external timer or
separate remote-control system.
• Unattended cooking on a hob with fat or oil can be dangerous
and may result in fire.
• Never try to extinguish a fire with water, but switch off the appliance and then cover flame e.g. with a lid or a fire blanket.
• Do not store items on the cooking surfaces.
• Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the appliance.
• Metallic objects such as knives, forks, spoons and lids should
not be placed on the hob surface since they can get hot.
• If the glass ceramic surface is cracked, switch off the appliance
to avoid the possibility of electric shock.
• After use, switch off the hob element by its control and do not
rely on the pan detector.
• If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, an authorized Service or similarly qualified persons in
order to avoid a hazard.
Safety instructions
Warning! Only a qualified person must
install this appliance.
• Remove all the packaging.
• Do not install or use a damaged appliance.
• Obey the installation instruction supplied
with the appliance.
• Keep the minimum distance from the other
appliances and units.

• Seal the cut surfaces with a sealant to prevent moisture to cause swelling.
• Protect the bottom of the appliance from
steam and moisture.
• Do not install the appliance adjacent to a
door or under a window. This prevents hot
cookware to fall from the appliance when
the door or the window is opened.
• If the appliance is installed above drawers
make sure that the space, between the bottom of the appliance and the upper drawer,
is sufficient for air circulation.
• Make sure that the ventilation space of 2
mm, between the worktop and the front of
the below unit, is free. The warranty does
not cover damages caused by the lack of an
adequate ventilation space.

Helpful hints and tips
For induction cooking zones a strong electromagnetic field creates the heat in the cookware very quickly.
Cookware for induction cooking zones
Important! Use the induction cooking zones
with correct cookware.
• humming: you use high power levels.
• clicking: electric switching occurs.
• hissing, buzzing: the fan operates.
The noises are normal and do not refer
to appliance malfunction.
Energy saving
How to save energy
Cookware material
• correct: cast iron, steel, enamelled steel,
stainless steel, the bottom made of multilayer (with correct mark from a manufacturer).
• not correct: aluminium, copper, brass,
glass, ceramic, porcelain.

or to melt it.
Cookware is correct for an induction hob

• ... some water boils very quickly on a zone

• ... a magnet pulls on to the bottom of the
The cooking zone efficiency is related to the
diameter of the cookware. The cookware with
a smaller diameter than the minimum receives
only a part of the power generated by the
cooking zone. For the minimum diameters see
the Technical Information chapter.
The bottom of the cookware must be
as thick and flat as possible.
Cookware dimensions: induction cooking
zones adapt to the dimension of the bottom of
the cookware automatically to some limit.
The noises during operation
If you can hear
• crack noise: cookware is made of different
materials (Sandwich construction).
• whistle sound: you use one or more cooking
zones with high power levels and the cookware is made of different materials (Sandwich construction).
The cooking zone efficiency
The Examples of cooking applications
The relation between the heat setting and the
cooking zone consumption of power is not linear.
When you increase the heat setting it is not
proportional to the increase of the cooking
zone consumption of power.
It means that the cooking zone with the medium heat setting uses less than a half of its

Always use cookware with clean bottom.
Scratches or dark stains on the glass-ceramic cause no effect on how the appliance operates.
To remove the dirt:
1. – Remove immediately: melted plastic,
plastic foil, and food with sugar. If not,
the dirt can cause damage to the appliance. Use a special scraper for the
glass . Put the scraper on the glass sur-
face at an acute angle and move the
blade on the surface .
– Remove after the appliance is sufficiently cool: limescale rings , water
rings, fat stains, shiny metallic discolorations. Use a special cleaning agent for
glass ceramic or stainless steel.
2. Clean the appliance with a moist cloth
and some detergent.
3. At the end rub the appliance dry with
a clean cloth.
