IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ THE OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
BEFORE USING THE
COOKTOP
WARNING This appliance is only intended for
residential cooking. The
manufacturer cannot be held
responsible for damage or injury
caused by improper use or for uses
other than those for which this
appliance is intended.
When using your appliance follow
basic safety precautions including
the following:
Installation
Be certain your appliance is
properly installed and grounded by
a qualified technician in accordance
with national and local safety
regulations. The manufacturer cannot
be held responsible for damage
caused by incorrect installation or
connection.
Do not connect the appliance to
the main electrical supply using an
extension cord. Extension cords do not
meet the safety requirements of this
appliance.
Before servicing, disconnect the
appliance from the main power
supply.

of this appliance, continuity must
exist between the appliance and an
effective grounding system. It is
imperative that this basic safety
requirement be met. If there is any
doubt, have the electrical system of the
house checked by a qualified
electrician. The manufacturer will not be
held responsible for damages caused
by the lack, or inadequacy, of an
effective grounding system.
Only for frame/facet cooktops:
A small gap will be visible between
cooktop and countertop for the first
days after installation. The gap will
decrease as the cooktop is used. The
electrical safety of your appliance is
warrantied despite the small gap.
Use
Do not use the appliance until it
has been properly installed in the
countertop.
This appliance is equipped with an
overheating protection feature. See
"Overheating protection" for more
information.
Never use the appliance to heat a
room. Due to the high
temperatures radiated, objects left near
the appliance could catch fire.
When the cooktop is turned on for
an extended period of time, the
control panel may get warm. This is not
a malfunction.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Injury prevention
Children should not be left
unattended in an area where the
cooktop is in use. Never allow children
to sit or stand on any part of the
cooktop.
Caution: Do not store items of interest
to children in cabinets above the
cooktop. Children climbing on the
cooktop to reach these items could be
injured.
Use the Safety Lock to prevent
children from turning on the
cooking zones or changing the
settings. See "Safety lock" for more
information.
Keep all pots and pans out of the
reach of children. Danger of
burning or scalding. Special
cooktop/stove guards are available
from retail outlets.
Do not touch the cooktop or the
surrounding areas during or
immediately after use. The cooktop may
be hot even though it is dark in color.
Wait until the residual heat indicators
go out.
4
Protect your hands with insulated
gloves or potholders when using
the appliance. Use only dry, heat
resistant potholders. Moist or damp
potholders used on hot surfaces can
result in steam burns. Do not let the
potholder touch the hot heating
elements. Do not use towels or other
bulky items near the appliance.
Be aware of loose fitting or hanging
garments when operating the
cooktop, they may present a fire
hazard.
Use the proper pan size. Select
cookware with flat bottoms large
enough to cover the heating element.
Using undersized cookware will expose
a portion of the heating element and
may result in ignition of clothing or
handles becoming hot. The proper size
pot or pan will also improve efficiency.
Pot and pan handles should be
turned inward and not extend over
the countertop to reduce the risk of
burns, ignition of flammable materials,
and spills.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Never leave a cooktop unattended
at high settings or when cooking
with oil or fat. Overheated oil could
ignite. Always heat oil slowly,
monitoring it as it heats.
To prevent burns and breathing
difficulty, allow the cooktop to cool
before cleaning. Some cleaners may
produce toxic fumes if applied to a hot
surface.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Smother or use a dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher on any fire or
flame.
When wiping spills on a hot
cooktop with a wet sponge or
cloth, be careful to avoid steam burns.
When frying food make sure that
the food is as dry as possible
before placing it in oil. Moisture can
cause hot oil to splatter and boil over.
At high settings, be cautious of
splattering grease or boiling over
liquids which may produce smoke.
Do not flambé under an exhaust
hood. Flames could be drawn up
into the hood by the suction and the
grease filters may ignite.
Do not heat unopened containers.
Built-up pressure may cause the
container to burst and result in injury.
Before removing pots and pans be
sure to turn off the burners.
Do not let flammable materials,
i.e. cooking grease, accumulate on
the appliance.
Never cover the cooktop with a
cloth. A fire may result.
Do not store items on the cooktop
when not in use. Items could melt

cooktop is turned on inadvertently.
Flammable materials should not be
stored on or near the appliance.
If there is a drawer directly
underneath the appliance without a
protective base between it and the
cooktop, ensure that no aerosols,
combustible liquids or other flammable
materials are kept in it. If cutlery inserts
are to be placed in the drawer they
must be made of heat-resistant
material.
5
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Damage protection
Never place hot pots or pans over
the touch controls, this may
damage the electronics.

Do not use pots or pans with
pronounced edges or ridges on
the ceramic cooktop. These could
scratch the cooktop permanently. See
"Selecting cookware" for more
information. Grains of salt and sand can
cause scratches. Make sure that the
bases of any pots and pans are clean,
free of any fat or oils and are dry.
To prevent damage to the cooktop
do not use pots and pans with thin
bases on the cooktop. Never heat an
empty pan unless the pan manufacturer
states that you can do so.
Before using glass, glass/ceramic,
ceramic, earthenware or other
glazed cookware verify that they can be
used on a cooking surface.
6
Do not allow either solid or liquid
sugar, pieces of plastic or foil to fall
on the burners when they are hot. If
these residues are allowed to cool on
the ceramic surface pitting or even
cracking may occur.
Any spills should be removed as
quickly as possible to prevent them
from burning on and becoming difficult
to remove.
Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean this appliance. Steam could
penetrate electrical components and
cause a short circuit.

16
Selecting cookware
Following these tips will allow you to
make the most of your ceramic
cooktop.
The cooking surface
The ceramic cooktop is made of an
extremely hard and durable material.
The surface is scratch resistant, not
scratch proof. Avoid using cookware
with ridged bottoms. Ridged pots with
dirty or chipped enamel bottoms may
scratch the cooktop if they are pulled
across the ceramic surface.
Make sure the cooktop and pot bottoms
are clean before cooking. Certain
items, particularly sugar grains or
crystallized liquids such as molasses or
syrups are harder than ceramic and
can scratch the surface if they are not
cleaned off immediately. Small or light
scratches will not affect the safety or
performance of the cooktop.
The burner rings and touch controls are
fused into the ceramic glass and are
resistant to wear if properly maintained.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or pads,
as they may eventually wear off the
rings.
Pots and pans
Special cookware is not required, but
as is true with all types of cooking
appliances, the better the cookware,
the better the performance.
– For the most even and energy
efficient cooking, the diameter of the
pots/pans should match the diameter
of the burners as closely as possible.
– Use cookware with thick, flat, smooth
bottoms. Slightly concave bottoms
will also work adequately. Pans with
convex bottoms will not cook well.
– Using a lid while cooking will
minimize the loss of heat and
decrease the cooking time.
17
Selecting cookware
Copper bottom and aluminum pans
may leave a residue on the cooktop in
the form of metallic lines. This is normal.
These lines can be removed using a
non-abrasive ceramic cooktop cleaner
or a shielded scraper blade.
Be sure to clean the cooktop after
each use. Each time this residue is
allowed to melt it becomes harder to
remove and may mar the
appearance of the cooktop.
Let the cooktop cool before
cleaning.
Cast iron, glass or stoneware should
not be used because they have poor
heat transfer and may scratch the
cooktop surface.
18
Timer
The cooktop has a timer which can be
used to:
– time any activity in the kitchen.
– automatically turn off one (any)
burner.
The functions above can also be used

Safety features
Overheating protection
Each burner is equipped with a
temperature limiter. This limiter turns off
the heating elements in the burner
before the ceramic surface becomes
too hot. Once the ceramic surface has
cooled to a safe temperature the
heating elements will automatically turn
back on.
The overheating protection may be
activated by:
– turning on a burner without putting a
pan on it.
– heating an empty pan.
– an uneven pan not sitting evenly on
the burner.
– the pan not conducting heat
properly.
If the heating elements cycle on and
off, even at the highest setting, the
overheating protection has been
activated.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Note to the installer:
Please leave this instruction book
with the consumer for the local
electrical inspector’s use.
The minimum distances given in
these Installation Instructions must
be observed in order to ensure safe
operation. Failure to do so increases
the risk of fire.
The cabinetry and venting hood
should be installed first to prevent
damage to the cooktop.
recommended
The cooktop can only be installed
as shown in the illustrations while
maintaining the required safety
distances shown. Do not install the
cooktop between two tall cabinets, this
is a fire hazard.
A minimum distance of 2" (50 mm)
from the cooktop to the rear wall and
a side wall must be maintained for
safety.
not recommended
The countertop must be bonded
with heat resistant (212 °F/100 °C)
adhesive to prevent distortion and
dissolving.
The cooktop must not be installed
over a dishwasher, refrigerator or
freezer. Heat radiated by the cooktop
may damage them.
32
not allowed
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To eliminate the risk of burns or fire
by reaching over heated surfaces,
cabinet storage space above the
cooktop should be avoided. If cabinet
storage is necessary, the risk can be
reduced by installing a venting hood to
project horizontally a minimum of 5"
beyond the bottom of the cabinets.
Because of the heat radiated it is
not recommend to install the
cooktop above a drawer. It should be
installed above a cabinet base unit with
a dummy drawer front. A protective
base should also be installed between
the dummy drawer and the cooktop.
This appliance is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as recreational
vehicles or aircraft. However, under
certain conditions it may be possible for
installation in these applications. Please
contact the Miele Technical Service
Department with specific requirements.

permanently sealed into the
countertop when installed. The sealing
strip under the edge of the cooktop
provides a sufficient seal for the
countertop. See "Sealing".
Safety distance above the
appliance
As a general rule there must be a safety
distance of at least 30" (760 mm)
between the appliance and any
objects above it, e.g. cabinetry, venting
hood, etc. If the manufacturer of these
items states a different figure, always
adhere to the greater distance. These
measurements should be given in their
operating and installation instructions.
If there is more than one appliance
beneath a hood, e.g. wok burner
and electric cooktop and they have
different minimum safety distances
always select the greater distance.
