WARNING If the frying sensor is not working properly, overheating may result causing smoke and damage to the pan. WHEN COOKING WITH THE FRYING SENSOR OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING: ‒ Use a system pan only ‒ Always put the pan in the centre of the heating element ‒ Do not place a lid on the pan ‒ Never leave frying fat unattended Never use the appliance if liquids or foods have spilled around the control panel. Always turn off the cooktop and dry the control panel. Injury and damage to the appliance may occur if control elements are not used properly. If the cooktop turns off automatically and can no longer be operated, it may turn itself on unintentionally at a later point. Switch off the circuit breaker in the fuse box. Contact the after-sales service.
Never move a pan of hot oil, especially a deep fat fryer. Wait until it is cool. Secure all loose garments, etc. before beginning. Tie long hair so that it does not hang loose, and do not wear loose fitting clothing or hanging garments, such as ties, scarves, jewelry, or dangling sleeves. WARNING Risk of burns Metallic objects become hot very quickly on the cooktop. Never set down metallic objects, such as knives, forks, spoons and lids on the cooktop.
WARNING Risk of burns The pan detection may potentially fail to turn off the cooking zone due to spilled food or objects placed upon the cooktop. After each use, turn off the cooktop using the main switch. If the display does not work when a cooking area is heating up, disconnect the circuit breaker from the fuse box. Contact an authorized servicer.
Burn Prevention DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS - Surface units may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing, potholders, or other flammable materials contact surface units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these areas are the cooktop and areas facing the cooktop. Do not heat or warm unopened food containers. Buildup of pressure may cause the container to burst and cause injury. Always use dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth. Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when flambeing food (i.e. Crêpes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe). Use high heat settings on the cooktop only when necessary. To avoid bubbling and splattering, heat oil slowly on no more than a low-medium setting. Hot oil is capable of causing extreme burns and injury. 6

Electromagnetic interference WARNING This induction cooktop generates and uses ISM frequency energy that heats cookware by using an electromagnetic field. It has been tested and complies with Part 18 of the FCC Rules for ISM equipment. This induction cooktop meets the FCC requirements to minimize interference with other devices in residential installation. Induction cooktops may cause interference with television or radio reception. If interference occurs, the user should try to correctthe interference by: ‒ Relocating the receiving antenna of the radio or television. ‒ Increasing the distance between the cooktop and the receiver. ‒ Connecting the receiver into an outlet different than the receiver. It is the user’s responsibility to correct any interference. CAUTION Persons with a pacemaker or similar medical device should exercise caution when standing near an induction cooktop while it is in use. Consult your doctor or the manufacturer of the pacemaker or similar medical device for additional information about its effects with electromagnetic fields from an induction cooktop.
Cooling fan The cooktop is equipped with a cooling fan on its underside. Should the cooktop lie above a drawer, there must be no objects or paper in it. They may be sucked in and compromise the cooling of the appliance or damage the fan. There must be a minimum distance of ¾" (20mm) between the content of the drawer and the fan input.
State of California Proposition 65 Warnings WARNING This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Causes of damage ▯
Scratches on glass ceramic surface: Cookware
with rough bottoms will scratch the glass ceramic surface.
Salt, sugar and sand: Salt, sugar or grains of sand
will scratch the glass ceramic surface. Never use the cooktop as a working surface or for setting things down.
Overheated cookware: Avoid heating pots or pans
that are empty.
Hot cookware: Never set down hot pans and pots
Protecting the environment Energy-saving advice ▯
Always place a fitting lid on cookware. Cooking with an uncovered pan will result in a four-fold increase in energy use. Use a glass lid to provide visibility and avoid having to lift the lid.
Use cookware equipped with a solid, flat bottom. Curved pan bases increase energy consumption.
The diameter of the pan base must match the size of the element. If not, energy may be wasted. Note: The manufacturer normally indicates the pan's upper diameter. This is normally greater than the diameter of the pan's base.
Choose cookware of a size suited to the amount of food you are going to cook. A large pan that is only half full will use a lot of energy.
Use a small amount of water when cooking. This saves energy, and vegetables retain a larger percentage of their vitamins and minerals.
Select a lower power level.
on the control panel or frame. This may cause damage.
Hard and sharp objects: Hard or sharp objects falling on the cooktop may damage it.
Boiled-over food: Sugar and products containing sugar may damage the cooktop. Immediately eliminate spills of these products with a glass scraper.
Foils and plastics: Aluminum foil and plastic will
melt on the hot cooking zones. Stove protective film isn't suitable for your cooktop.
Unsuitable cleaning agent : Shimmering metallic
discolorations on the glass ceramic surface result from the use of inappropriate cleaning agents and abrasion from cookware.
Cooking by induction
Other suitable cookware for induction
There are other types of cookware with a base not entirely ferromagnetic that are made for induction cooking use.
Advantages of induction cooking When using large cookware on a smaller ferromagnetic element, only the ferromagnetic element heats up, so heat might not be uniformly distributed.
Induction cooking represents a radical change from the traditional method of heating; the heat is generated directly in the pan. It therefore offers a number of advantages:
Greater speed in cooking and frying; as the pan is heated directly.
Energy is saved.
Greater convenience in care and cleaning. Foods that have spilled on the cooktop surface do not burn as quickly.
Heat and safety control; the cooktop supplies or cuts off power immediately when the controls are set. The induction cooktop stops supplying heat if the pan is removed without turning off the power first.
Cookware with aluminum on the base reduce the ferromagnetic zone, so less heat may be supplied or problems with detection might occur. For good cooking results, the diameter of the cookware's ferromagnetic area should match the size of the element. If cookware is not detected on an element, try it on the next smaller element. Unsuitable pans
Never use pans made of: Ferromagnetic pans
Only ferromagnetic pans are suitable for induction cooking, these can be made from:
special stainless steel utensils for induction cooking
Check that the bases of your pans are attracted by a magnet to find out if they are suitable.
thin normal steel
Characteristics of the pan base
The characteristics of the pan base can influence the evenness of the cooking results. Pans made from materials which help diffuse heat, such as stainless steel sandwich pans, distribute heat uniformly, saving time and energy. No pan or improper size
If no pan is placed on the selected element, or if it is made of unsuitable material or is not the correct size, the power level displayed on the element indicator will flash. Place a suitable pan on the element to stop the flashing. If you take longer than 90 seconds to place a suitable pan on the element, it will automatically turn off.
Empty pans or pans with a thin base
Do not heat up empty pans, or use pans with a thin base. The cooktop is equipped with an internal safety system. However, an empty pan may heat up so quickly that the "automatic switch off" function may not have time to react and the pan may reach very high temperatures. The pan base could melt and damage the cooktop glass. In this case, do not touch the pan and switch the cooktop off. If the cooktop fails to work after it has cooled down, please contact the technical service. Pan detection
Each element has a minimum limit for detecting pans, which varies depending on the material of the pan you are using. You should therefore use the element that best matches the diameter of your pan. Automatic detection on double or triple cooking elements
These elements can detect different pan sizes. Depending on the material and properties of the pan, the element will adapt automatically, and will turn on single zone or the entire element, supplying the proper power to obtain good cooking results.
Getting familiar with the appliance
These instructions apply to more than one cooktop, your appliance might vary slightly. Page 2 contains a list of models and dimensions.
