Cooking over two cooking zones
Large cookware can be heated with two
cooking zones simultaneously. Either the two
cooking zones on the left-hand side or on the
right-hand side of the cooking surface are
suitable for this.
1. Place cookware centrally on the two
zones.
The cookware must cover at least two
crosses.
2. Set the same heat setting for the two
cooking zones (max. setting 8).
With different cookware there can be differences in the heat distribution. Good
cooking results can be achieved with
cookware with thick, flat bottoms.

Residual heat can be used for melting
and keeping food warm.
The induction cooking zones create the
heat required for cooking directly in the base
of the cookware. The glass ceramic is merely
heated by the residual heat of the cookware.

Power Management
The cooking zones of the cooking surface
have a maximum power.
The maximum power is reached when the
heat setting 8 has been set for all cooking
zones.
Two cooking zones generate a pair (see figure) and therefore, the power management
shares the maximum available power between these cooking zones.
When the power function is selected for one
cooking zone, the power management
makes the additional power for this cooking
zone available by reducing the power of the
corresponding other cooking zone.
Example: the heat setting 8 is selected on
one cooking zone. The power function is
switched on for the corresponding cooking
zone. The power function is carried out but
the heat setting 8 of one of the cooking zones
and the power function for the other cooking
zone of the pair exceed the maximum power
for both at the same time. For this purpose,
the power management reduces the power
of the cooking zone that switched on first
from 8 to example 5 and the display of this
cooking zone changes between 8 and 5 and
then stays at the current possible maximum
5. (If the display changes between 8 and 5 or
8 and 3 or another value depends on the type
of appliance and the size of the cooking
zone.).

Tips on cooking and frying
Information about acrylamides
According to the latest scientific research, intensive browning of food, especially in products containing starch,
may present a health risk due to acrylamide. Therefore we recommend cooking at low temperatures and not browning foods too much.

Suitability test
Cookware is suitable for induction cooking, if
…
• ... a little water on an induction cooking
zone set to the highest heat setting is heated within a short time.
• ... a magnet sticks to the bottom of the
cookware.
Certain cookware can make noises
when being used on induction cooking
zones. These noises are not a fault in the
appliance and do not affect operation in
any way.
-
Bottom of the cookware
The bottom of the cookware should be as
thick and level as possible.
Pan size
Induction cooking zones adapt automatically
to the size of the bottom of the cookware up
to a certain point. However the magnetic part
of the bottom of the cookware must have a
minimum diameter depending on the size of
the cooking zone. Cookware with a bottom
with a diameter of less than 12cm is not suitable.
Tips on energy saving
Place cookware on the cooking zone
before it is switched on.

Installation instructions
Safety instructions
Warning! This must be read!
The laws, ordinances, directives and standards in force in the country of use are to be
followed (safety regulations, proper recycling
in accordance with the regulations, etc.)
Installation may only be carried out by a qualified electrician. The minimum distances to
other appliances and units are to be observed.
Anti-shock protection must be provided by
the installation, for example drawers may only be installed with a protective floor directly
underneath the appliance. The cut surfaces
of the worktop are to be protected against
moisture using a suitable sealant.
The sealant seals the appliance to the work
top with no gap. When building in, protect the
underside of the appliance from steam and
moisture, e.g. from a dishwasher or oven.
Avoid installing the appliance next to doors
and under windows. Otherwise hot cookware may be knocked off the rings when
doors and windows are opened.
Warning! Risk of injury from electrical
current.
• The electrical mains terminal is live.
• Make electrical mains terminal free of voltage.
• Follow connection schematic.
• Observe electrical safety rules.
• Ensure anti-shock protection by installing
correctly.
• The appliance must be connected to the
electrical supply by a qualified electrician.
• Loose and inappropriate plug and socket
connections can make the terminal overheat.
• Have the clamping connections correctly
installed by a qualified electrician.
The connection must be carried out as
shown in the diagram, refer to the sticker
Caution! The surface temperature
exceeds 95°C. To avoid a hazard, under
bench access must be restricted.
on the back of the hob for wiring connection diagram. The connection links should
be fitted according the appropriate connection diagram. Note for single phase
connection, the link (or bridge) will need to
be fitted between terminals 1 and 2 (refer
to the connection sticker on back of the
unit). The earth lead is connected to terminal
.
The earth lead must be longer than leads
carrying electric current.
• Use strain relief clamp on cable.
• In the event of single-phase or two-phase
connection, the appropriate mains cable
of type H05BB-F Tmax 90°C (or higher)
must be used.
• If this appliance’s mains cable is damaged,
it must be replaced by a special cable (type
H05BB-F Tmax 90°C; or higher). Please
contact your local Service Force Center for
further advice.
A device must be provided in the electrical
installation which allows the appliance to be
disconnected from the mains at all poles with
a contact opening width of at least 3 mm
Suitable isolation devices include line protecting cut-outs, fuses (screw type fuses are
to be removed from the holder), earth leakage trips and contactors.
Sticking on the seal
• Clean the worktop in the area of the cutout section.
• Stick the one-sided self-adhesive sealing
tape supplied all the way round the lower
edge of the cooking surface along the outer edge of the glass ceramic panel. Do not
stretch it. The cut ends should lie in the
middle of one side. When you have cut it
to length (add a few mm), press the two
ends flush up against one another.
A duplicate rating label is supplied with this
unit. For easy identification of this unit after
installation, stick it to a readily available surface adjacent to the cooktop.
