Using the touch controls
This cooktop is equipped with electronic touch controls activated by a
light touch of the fingertip.
Only touch one control at a time. If
more than one control is pressed, the
entries will be ignored.
Keep the area around the touch
controls clean at all times. Dirt or
utensils placed on the controls may
activate them.
When cleaning the cooktop, make
sure the cooktop is "Off", and be
careful not to accidentally turn it
Never place hot pots or pans over
the touch controls, as the underlying
electronics may be damaged.
The cooktop is safe to clean when all
the displays, including the residual heat
indicators are "Off".
Before using for the first time
^ To avoid scratching the ceramic
glass, clean the cooktop before the
first use in order to remove any dust
or fine particles left over from the installation process (see "Cleaning and
care"). An odor may be noticeable
during the first use of each burner as
the residual moisture left in the heating element insulation dries out. This
is normal.

These settings are intended as a guide only.
When using large pans or cooking large quantities, a higher setting may be required. When
cooking smaller quantities, use a lower setting.
Using the touch controls
Locking a burner
Once selected, the burners can be
"locked" in order to prevent accidental
changing of the settings.
All burners can be shut off simultaneously, even if the Control Lock has
been activated.
^ Press the main "s" touch control (l)
until the dot above it goes out.
To lock the burners:
^ Press the "a" touch control (k) until
a dot lights up above it.
To turn the lock off:
^ Press the "a" touch control (k) until
the dot goes out.
Automatic shut off
If the cooktop is left "On" longer than
normal cooking generally requires, it
will turn itself off automatically. The
amount of time required, between 1
and 10 hours for this feature to activate
depends on the power setting selected.
The lower the setting, the longer it will
take to shut off. In addition, each burner
is equipped with a safety thermostat
that will shut it off if the ceramic surface
should overheat.
Keep the area around the touch
controls clean at all times. Clean up
boilovers and spills as soon as possible. Dirt or utensils placed on the
controls may activate them.
Never place hot pots or pans over
the touch controls, as the underlying
electronics may be damaged.
When cleaning the cooktop, make
sure the cooktop is "Off", and be
careful not to accidentally turn it
Using the touch controls
Automatic pre-heat
This feature is separately available for
each burner, allowing it to reach the
desired cooking temperature quickly
without manual intervention. If the automatic pre-heat function is selected, the
burner will heat up using its maximum
power for a pre-set time (see table)
before automatically switching to the
selected cooking temperature.
A dot will appear behind the power setting display when this feature is active.
Length of pre-heating
The length of the pre-heat cycle depends upon the cooking power that is
set. When using Settings 1 - 5, food is
usually placed in the pot before setting
it on the cooktop. To compensate for
the added mass of the food, the preheat time is increased as the cooking
power is increased.
Settings 6 - 8 are generally used for frying or roasting where the pan needs to
be brought up to temperature before
the food is introduced. For this reason
the pre-heat times are shorter.
Approximate pre-heat

Selecting cookware
The cooking surface
Pots and pans
Your ceramic cooktop is made of an
extremely hard and durable material
that should give you many years of use
under normal conditions. 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.
Special cookware is not required, but
as is true with all types of cooking appliances, the better the cookware, the
better the performance.
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 actually 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 however.
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
Any melted solids (e.g. sugar, plastic, syrup, aluminium foil, etc.)
should be removed as quickly as
possible and while the burner is still
warm. If they are allowed to harden,
the cooktop may become pitted.
Scrape the melted item off the
cooktop using a razor blade scraper.
Once the cooktop has cooled,
remove any remaining residue using
a ceramic cooktop cleaner.
Following these tips will allow you to
make the most of your ceramic
– For the most even and energy efficient cooking, the diameter of the
pots 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.
Selecting cookware
– Sometimes what appear to be
scratches are not. Metallic lines such
as those left by copper or aluminum
pans can be removed using a
non-abrasive ceramic cooktop
cleaner. Let the cooktop cool before
– Using a lid while cooking will minimize the loss of heat and decrease
the cooking time.
– Cast iron, glass or stoneware should
not be used because they have poor
heat transfer and may scratch the
Cleaning and care
Use a product suitable for cleaning
ceramic cooking surfaces. If you have
difficulty locating a suitable product,
contact Miele’s Technical Service
Department. Do not use glass cleaners
on the cooktop. They leave a residue
that can fuse onto and stain the
cooktop when cooking at high temperatures.
Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, steel wool or caustic
(oven) cleaners. They will damage
the cooktop surface.
Do not clean the joints between the
cooktop frame and countertop or
cooktop frame and glass with a
pointed or sharp object. You may
damage the seal.
^ Clean the cooktop after each use.
Using a fresh paper towel will avoid
the possibility of transferring grit from
the countertop to the cooktop surface. Clean cloths or sponges can
also be used.
^ Some spilt liquids (soups, sauces,
etc.) may leave a light blue stain on
the cooktop surface. These stains
can be removed using a ceramic
cooktop cleaner. They can be stubborn and may require several applications of cleaner.
^ Baked on or hardened spills can be
carefully scraped off using a razor
blade scraper. Once removed, wipe
off the cooktop with a damp sponge.
^ Metallic lines such as those left by
copper or aluminum pans can be removed using a non-abrasive ceramic
cooktop cleaner. Let the cooktop cool
before cleaning.
^ Lime deposits or spots caused by
pots boiling over can sometimes be
removed by using a cloth or sponge
and white vinegar. Cooktop cleaners
can also be used.
When cleaning the cooktop, make
sure the cooktop is "Off", and be
careful not to accidentally turn it
"On". Placing items on the touch
controls or rubbing a cloth across
them may accidentally activate a
Cleaning and care
Removing melted sugar, syrup,
plastic or aluminum foil
These items should be removed as
soon as possible while the cooktop is
still warm. Scrape the melted item off
the cooktop using a razor blade
scraper. Once the cooktop has cooled,
remove any remaining residue using a
ceramic cooktop cleaner.
Using cooktop cleaners
Some cleaners incorporate a silicon
agent that will leave a protective coating on the cooktop. Although not required, they can also be used. High
temperatures reduce the effectiveness
of these coatings, so they will have to
be reapplied occasionally.
Always follow the manufacturer’s
instructions on the cleaner label. Do
not use the cleaner on hot surfaces.
Remove any cleaner residues with a
damp sponge before turning on the
burner. Failure to do so may cause
Frequently asked questions
Repairs to the electrical components
of this appliance should only be
performed by a trained technician.
Repairs by unauthorized personnel
could cause personal injury or
damage the cooktop.
Some minor problems can be resolved
as follows:
What if . . .
. . . you notice a slight odor when using the cooktop for the first time?
This is normal. The residual moisture in
the internal insulation is drying out. The
odor should disappear after one or two
. . . a burner will not turn on?
Check to see if the cooktop has been
"locked" (see "Locking a burner").
^ Make sure the cooktop is connected
to the main power supply and that
the circuit breaker has not tripped.
. . . a burner shuts off during use and
"H" flashes in the display?
If a burner has been on for an extended
period of time, it will automatically shut
itself off and flash an "H" in the display.
This time will range from 1 to 10 hours
depending on the setting selected.
To reset the burner:
^ Select "0" first, then select the desired
cooking setting.
An "H" flashing in the display after the
burner has been manually shut off is
normal. This is the residual heat indicator telling you that the burner is still hot.
. . . food does not cook satisfactorily
when using the automatic pre-heat
^ Check that the cooking setting is
correct for the pans being used and
the items being cooked.
^ If the pots have poor or slow heat
transfer qualities, they will take longer
to reach cooking temperature than
the burners. In this case, the pots
should be allowed to heat up before
placing the food in them, or a higher
cooking setting should be chosen.

Ideally, the cooktop should be installed
with no walls (other than the rear wall)
or tall cabinets directly adjacent to it. It
can be installed next to one wall,
however, as long as the spacings listed
below are maintained.
To avoid damaging the cooktop, it
should only be placed in the
countertop after any exhaust hood
or cabinetry have been installed
above it.
Do not install the cooktop directly
above a dishwasher, refrigerator or
freezer. Heat radiated by the
cooktop may damage them.
If the cooktop is installed above an
oven, make sure the cooktop’s
power cord does not come into
contact with the oven.
To reduce the risk of burns when reaching over the cooktop, avoid installing
the cooktop below wall mounted cabinets.
If cabinets are installed above the
cooktop, the risk of burns can be reduced by installing an exhaust hood
that extends at least 5" (13 cm) beyond
the bottom of the cabinet.
40 mm = 1 1/2"
50 mm = 2"
When installing cooktops, keep in
mind that they will radiate some heat
sideways as well as straight up. For
this reason, the recommended
distances from the surrounding
cabinets must be maintained for
safety reasons.
Do not install the cooktop into an
area between two walls or cabinets.
One side of the cooktop must be
open to air flow or the danger of fire
will exist.
