Damage can occur if hard or pointed objects fall on the hob.
Aluminium foil and plastic containers melt on hot hotplates.
Oven protective foil is not suitable for your hob.
Never place hot pots or pans on the control panel, the
display area or the surround. This may cause damage.

Environmental protection

electrical and electronic appliances (WEEE –
waste electrical and electronic equipment). The
guideline determines the framework for the return
and recycling of used appliances as applicable.
Tips for saving energy

■
■
■
■

4
Always use the right lid for the pan in question. Cooking
without the lid requires four times as much energy.
Use pots and pans with even bases. Using cookware with
uneven bases increases energy consumption.
The diameter of the base of your pot or pan should match the
size of the hotplate. In particular, if pots that are too small are
placed on the hotplate, energy is wasted. Please note:
Cookware manufacturers often specify the diameter of the
top of the pan. This is usually bigger than the diameter of the
base of the pan.
Use a small pan for small quantities of food. A larger, less full
saucepan requires more energy.
Use only a little water when cooking. This saves energy. It
also preserves vitamins and minerals in vegetables.
Switch to a lower heat setting as soon as possible.
Use the residual heat of the hob. For longer cooking times,
you can switch the hotplate off 5 - 10 minutes before the end
of the cooking time.
Getting to know your appliance

Tips for the electronic boil start control
■
Electronic boil start control is designed to conserve food's
nutritional value while using little water for cooking.
■
■
Add only approximately 3 cups of water to the food for large
hotplates and approximately 2 cups of water for small
hotplates.
Place a lid on the saucepan.
Electronic boil start control is not suitable for food that is
