Before using your hob
Clean your ceramic hob thouroughly before its first use.
Ceramic hobs are treated and cleaned the same way as
glass. When you use the ceramic hob for the first time
it can give off a smell for a short time as the manufacturing
deposits burn off.
This Zanussi hob may be installed into any kitchen
worktop with a depth of 600 mm or more. The worktop
must be constructed of material resistant to 100°C.
The cut out in the worktop should be to the dimensions
shown in fig.1. Before making the cut out ensure that the
edges of the hob, that are to be adjacent to either a side
or rear wall, have a minimum distance of 55 mm between
the edge of the hob and the wall (fig.5).
5) Residual Heat Indicator
Please examine the appliance for any damage sustained
during transportation!
If the appliance is damaged please inform the installer or
retailer immediately, before the appliance is connec-ted.
The packing material should be disposed of properly.
• When the cut out to the worktop is complete, lower the
hob into position to ensure that fits.
• Remove the hob from the worktop and carry out the
electrical connection as described under the Electrical
Connection section.
• Check that the foam seal along the underside of the
hob is fitted correctly.
• Fix the spring clips with the enclosed screws on the
sides of the worktop inside the cut-out. The upper fold
on the clip-spring is there to fix the hob.
• Position the springs in accordance to the enclosed
• Lower the hob into the opening and carefully press
first the rear, then the front side of the hob down until
it "snaps" into the springs.
The seal on the underside of the hob will ensure that it is
airtight between the hob and the work surface, this will
prevent any spillages from seeping into the cabinet
below. Place the hob carefully into the recess, with the
cable outlet of the hob at the back. Press firmly around
the edge of the hob, to compress the foam strip and
ensure an airtight seal.
Then, proceed to fix the hob firmly into the working
surface, with the 6 fixing clamps as shown in Fig.2,
making sure that the seal between the hob and the work
surface is secure by tightening the fixing clamps.
Fig. 3
Fig. 4
The distance between the underside of the hob and the
furniture beneath must be at least 20 mm (Fig.3).
A minimum clearance height of 650 mm is required
above a hob surface. Measure the lowest horizontal
surface of the hob to overhead cupboards ensuring there
is a minimum of 420 mm between the hob surface and
underside of overhead cupboards is (fig.4).
If the height between the worktop and the underside of the
overhead cupboards is less than 420 mm a gap pf 50 mm
must be maintained either side of the hob up to a height
of 650 mm (fig.4).
There must be a clearance of 55 mm free of combustible
material to the side & back of the hob (fig.5).
Important for the removal of the hob
1. Disconnect the appliance from the mains.
2. In order to take out the whole glassceramic hob, use
a medium flat screwdriver or spatula. Put it in between
the frame and worktop on the area where the snap-in
ressorts are located.
3. Then slightly lift the unit out. Take care not to damage
the worktop.

In terms of fire protection, the appliance conforms
to type Y (IEC 335-2-6). Only appliances of this type
may be installed on one side of adjacent upright
furniture housings or walls.
The manufacturer declines any liability should
this safety measure not be observed.
Ensure that the electric circuit is capable of carrying the
load of the appliance.
Switch OFF the electricity supplies at the mains.
A double pole cooker control switch with a suitable
electrical rating should be used to control the electrical
supply to the hob.
The control switch should be easily accessible to the
user on completion of the installation.
The control switch must not break the yellow/green
earth wire at any point.
To wire the hob, carefully place the unit, face downward
on a flat surface with the control area overhanging, to
avoid damage to the controls. Remove the screws
securing the cover to the terminal box, remove the cover
and connect the supply cable via the cable clamp
(Fig.1), to the terminals provided. The supply cable
should be 6mm2 or its equivalent.
• Connect the earth wire to the terminal marked with the
letter "E" or with the earth symbol or coloured green.
• Connect the live wire to the terminal marked with the
letter "L" and coloured brown or red.
• Connect the neutral wire to the terminal marked with
the letter "N" and coloured blue or black.
• Tighten the terminal screws and the cable clamp,
then refit the terminal plate cover. You must ensure that
the cabinet is stable and level.
This appliance complies with EEC Directive number 76/
889 and amendment 82/499 relating to the suppression
of radio and TV interference.

Cooking Zones
The hob has 4 ceramic cooking zones. All 4 cooking
zones feature variable settings which are represented by
numbered graduations on each control knob.
Heat Control Knobs
The control knobs enable the regulation from 1-9 of the
heating capacity. The control knobs can be turned both
to the left and to the right. Setting it back to "0" turns off
the cooking zone.

Heat control knob:
double circuit zone
Two-circuits cooking zone
By turning the control knob left to the required power
level, the entire cooking zone will operate.
By turning the control knob right to the required power
level, only the centre of the cooking zone will operate.
Halogen Cooking Zone
The halogen cooking zone is heated up very rapidly
compared to the normal one-circuit cooking zone. It can
be compared with a gas cooking zone.
When switched on the halogen lamps immediately produce their full heating power.
Use the halogen heating zone to heat up food quickly.
Residual Heat Indicator
All cooking zones are related to one indicator. The warning light illuminates when the surface of any cooking
zone reaches a temperature which could cause a burn.
The light will remains illuminated, after the heated-up
area has been switched off, as long as the residual heat
of the cooking surface can cause burns. The light will go
out when the temperature is below 50°C.
1. Before using your hob, always ensure that the surface of the cooking areas and the saucepans are
clean and dry. Never cook directly on the cooking
zones without using a cooking vessel.
2. Place the saucepans with contents onto the cooking
area and turn the control knob to an appropriate
setting. The highest setting will allow the maximum
amount of heat to be transferred to the pan for initial
fast boiling or heating, but it is important to be guided
by recommendations given in the saucepan
manufacturer's instructions regarding the use of heat
settings to suit the type of pan. Close fitting lids on
the saucepans will ensure faster results.
3. To select a setting for simmering after initial fast
boiling or heating, or for slower cooking, turn to a
lower number. The numbers do not denote any set
temperature, but after using the hob a few times, no
difficulty will be experienced in selecting an appropriate setting, although this will vary with the type and
quantity of food, the size and type of saucepan and
whether or not the lid is used.
4. Remove any food spills on the hob as soon as
possible to prevent them from being burned on.
Please see notes on care and cleaning of your hob.
On ceramic hobs, sugar solutions e.g. jam and
syrups must be wiped off the surface immediately to
avoid the surface being damaged.
5. Do not leave an empty pan on a heated area.
6. Saucepans may be rested on unheated areas when
cooking is complete, prior to serving the food.
7. Do not slide pans across the ceramic surface as this
can cause scratches.
Deep Fat Frying
For safety purposes when deep fat frying, fill the pan only
one-third full of fat or oil.
Do not cover the pan with a lid and do not leave the pan
unattended. In the unfortunate event of a fire, switch off
at the mains supply and cover the pan with a lid or damp
cloth to assist in smothering the flames. Do not throw
water on the fat.
Do not store fat or oil on the hob in case the hob is
inadvertantly switched on.
The heating zones are fitted with thermal limiters, which
are a safety device to prevent the ceramic glass overheating, larger pans can be used - up to 230 mm (9") base
diameter on a nominal 180 mm (7") heated area providing they do not overlap the hob trims.
Only use cookware manufactured for use on ceramic
hobs. Look for the relevant symbol (Fig.1).
Radiant Ring
Solid Plate
Cooking pans with aluminium or copper bottoms
are unsuitable for use. These materials can cause
stains that can not be removed.
The following advice should be followed to achieve
an optimum energy consumption as well as
avoiding overboiling, which can be burned onto
the cooking zones.
Pan Bases
Cooking and frying pans should have a flat, solid and
smooth base. A base with rough edges can scratch and
leave abrasion marks on the ceramic surface.
Pan Sizes
Pans should have flat bases and be approximately the
same size as the cooking area.
Pan Lids
A lid prevents heat from escaping and therefore reduces
the cooking time.
Specialist Pans
Pressure cookers, preserving pans, etc. should comply
with the recommendations for normal saucepans given
above. Traditional round bottomed woks are not suitable
for use even with a stand, woks with flat bases are
available and do comply with the recommendations.
General Notes
• Very thin, badly dented and distorted pans, particularly
with uneven bases should NOT be used.
• Never place a utensil with a skirt (e.g. a bucket) on the
heated area.
• Pans should not have rough bases and should be lifted
on and off the cooking zone. Do not slid them, as this
may scratch the surface of the hob.
• Do not use large preserving pans or fish kettle across
two cooking zones as damage may occur to the hob.
• Pans must NOT overlap the hob trims.
Before carrying out any maintenance and cleaning
operations, make sure that the appliance is ISOLATED from the electricity supply.
Helpful Tips
• Make sure the bottom of utensils and cooking areas
are clean and dry.
• Select the correct heat settings and use saucepans
large enough to accommodate the food to eliminate
boilovers and splattering.
• If possible, wipe up food spills from adjacent heating
areas before using the areas for cooking.
• Use recommended ceramic hob cleaners only.
• To keep exterior trims and control panel in a spotless
condition, wipe after each use with a warm soapy
• Wipe the control knobs with a damp cloth, which has
been wrung out in hot, soapy water, then dry thoroughly.
• Remove any food spills on the hob as soon as possible
with a damp cloth.
• Make sure that the hob is cool before applying any
cleaning materials.
Ceramic Hobs
Use Cleaner Conditioner daily. As it cleans, it leaves a
protective coating of silicone on the smooth surface,
which helps to prevent scratches and abrasions in which
food particles can collect. It also helps to prevent build up
of mineral deposits and will make future clean-ing easier.
• Apply a dab of cleaner in the centre of each cooking
zone to be cleaned (for normal cleaning, start with
about 5 ml spoonful of cleaner, apply more if needed).
Dampen a cloth and then proceed to clean the hob. To
remove more stubborn marks use a slightly dampened non-stick pan cleaner (e.g. Scotchbrite or
• Wipe off this application with another clean damp
cloth and dry thoroughly.
• Any smearing or hazing on the surface can be removed
with a lightly dampened cloth and then be polished
with a soft dry cloth.
• If a wet paper towel is used to remove spills from a
warm cooking area, be careful to avoid steam burns.
• Do not use a sponge or dishcloth. They will leave a film
of water and possible detergent on heating areas,
which will turn brown and resemble discoloura-tion,
next time the area is heated. If this happens, apply
Cleaner Conditioner to remove it.
How To Deal With Metal Marks
• Metal deposits can be identified as grey/brown marks
on the ceramic surface and are usually caused by
dragging saucepans with aluminium bases, particularly when new, across the ceramic surface.
• To avoid these marks, protect the surface of the hob
with Cleaner Conditioner and lift the saucepans
across the heated areas. Ensure that new aluminium
based saucepans are well scrubbed on the base to
remove any rough edges and take off any deposits left
from manufacture.
• The marks are easily removable, providing they are
cleaned off straight away using the recommended
cleaners, and are not allowed to burn onto the
ceramic surface for long periods.
About Discolouration
Discolouration occurs on the surface not IN it.
By following proper care and cleaning recommen-dations
the surface will remain clean and bright.
The cooking surface should be cleaned thoroughly each
day to remove all visible spills. Cleaner Conditioner has
been specially formulated, use only as much as
necessary. If the Ceaner Conditioner is used too generously, a heavy film may be left that will burn on and
discolour when the areas are heated. When this occurs,
lightly scrub the surface with a dampened non-stick pan
cleaner, this will help to loosen the excess Cleaner
Conditioner. Then wipe the surface with a dampenend
cloth and polish with a soft dry cloth.
Important notes
• In the event of the hob being scratched, spills will
collect and appear as fine lines. These are not fully
removable but can be minimised by the daily use of
Cleaner Conditioner. These scratches do not affect
the cooking peformance.
• Spills from sugar solutions MUST be removed from
the hob before the syrup has set, otherwise damage
to the glass ceramic surface will occur.
• Do not place aluminium foil dishes on the hot surface
as these will cause damage to the hob.
• Hobrite and Corning Cleaner Conditioners are the
current recommended cleaner for use on the ceramic
• Cleaner Conditioner is for the ceramic hob only and
must NOT be used as general all purpose cleaner.
