~ 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 COOKING
AREA OR THE VICINITY AROUND THE
COOKING AREA - During operation,
the cooking area and its surroundings
will get hot and can cause burns. When
the cooktop is shut off, the surface may
remain hot enough to cause harm
although the glow is not visible through
the dark glass. During and after use, do
not touch or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact the
cooking area or the vicinity around the
cooking area until they have had
sufficient time to cool. As long as the
surface temperature is high enough to
cause a burn, the Residual Heat
Indicator will remain lit. Once sufficient
time has passed the indicator will go
out and the surface is safe to touch.
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

17
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.
18
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.
19
Timer
The cooktop has a timer which can be
used to time activities in the kitchen
and/or automatically turn off the
burners. Both functions can be used
simultaneously.
A time between 1 and 99 minutes can
be set. The time can be decreased or
increased with the - or + touch control.
To set the display back to 00 press and + at the same time.
If multiple times are programmed, the
time which elapses first is displayed. If
this time is allocated to a burner, the
respective indicator will flash.
Setting the timer
The timer can be set with the cooktop
either on or off. The timer can be set
from 1 to 99 minutes.
^ Touch the m sensor.
To set the timer when the automatic
turn off is programmed for one or more
burners: Press the sensor m until all
indicators of the programmed burners
light steadily and the display shows 00.
The display shows 00.
^ Touch the - or + sensor until the
desired time is displayed, e.g. 15
minutes.
The set time counts down in minutes in
the time display. The remaining time is
displayed and can be changed at any
time by pressing - or +.
After the set time has elapsed the
display shows 00 and a tone is heard.
After a few seconds the tone stops and
the 00 goes out. To end the tone touch
the m sensor.
20
Timer
Setting the timer to turn off a
burner automatically
To use this feature, a power setting
must be selected for the desired
burner. All burners can be programmed
at the same time.
^ Turn the desired burner on, e.g. rear
right, and select a power level.
^ Touch the m sensor until the
indicator of the desired burner lights,
e.g. rear right.
If multiple burners are turned on, the
indicators for the activated burners light
clockwise from front left to front right.
^ Touch the - or + sensor until the
desired time is displayed, e.g. 15
minutes.
The set time counts down in minutes.
The remaining time is displayed and
can be changed at any time by
pressing - or +.
When the set time has elapsed the
burner will automatically turn off. The
burner display shows 0, the timer
display shows 00 and a tone is heard.
After a few seconds the tone stops and
the 00 goes out. To end the tone touch
the m sensor.

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 should 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 or
dissolving.
~ The cooktop must not be installed
over a dishwasher, washer, dryer,
refrigerator or freezer. Heat radiated by
the cooktop may damage them.
not allowed
32
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.
Safety distances above the
appliance
~ Because of the heat radiated it is not
recommended to install the cooktop
above a drawer. It should be installed
above a cabinet base unit with a
dummy drawer front.

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".
The minimum safety distance given by
the hood manufacturer must be
maintained between the cooktop and
the hood above it. See the installation
instructions of the hood for these safety
measurements.
If the hood manufacturers instructions
are not available or if flammable objects
are installed over the cooktop (e.g.
cabinets, utensil rail, etc.), a minimum
safety distance of 30" (760 mm) must
be maintained.
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.
