Environmental protection

Unpack the appliance and dispose of the packaging in an
environmentally-responsible manner.

Environmentally-responsible disposal

This appliance is labelled in accordance with
European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste
Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). The
directive provides a framework for the collection
and recycling of old appliances, which is valid
across the EU.

Induction cooking


With induction cooking, the heat is generated directly in the pan
base. This has many advantages:
Time saved when cooking and roasting. The cookware is
heated up directly.
Easier care and cleaning. Food which has overflowed does
not burn on as quickly.
Controlled heat supply and safety. The induction generates
or interrupts the heat supply immediately after each use. The
heating is interrupted when you remove the cookware from
the cooking position, even if the cooking position is still
switched on.


Suitable cookware
Only use ferromagnetic cookware made of enamelled steel,
cast iron or special induction cookware made of rust-free
stainless steel.
Unsuitable cookware
Never use cookware made of conventional steel,glass,
ceramic, copper or aluminium.
Checking the cookware
Your cookware is suitable if the pan base can attract a magnet.
Saucepan manufacturers usually indicate cookware that is
suitable for induction cooking.

Tips for saving energy

Use pots and pans with even bases. Using cookware with
uneven bases increases energy consumption.
Use a small pan for small quantities of food. A larger, less full
saucepan requires more energy.
Always cover pans with a closely fitting lid. Cooking without
the lid requires four times as much energy.
Use only a little water when cooking. This saves energy. It
also preserves vitamins and minerals in vegetables.
Switch to a lower power level in good time.
Cookware base
The properties of the cookware base can influence the cooking
result. The material of the cookware base should distribute the
heat evenly. A sandwich base of stainless steel is a good
Empty cooking containers or cookware with a thin base
Risk of burning!
Do not heat up any empty cooking containers or cookware with
a thin base. An empty cooking container can heat up so quickly
that the safety shut-down is not activated on time and a high
temperature can be reached. The base of the container could
melt and damage the glass ceramic of the cooktop. Do not
touch the hot cooking container and switch the cooking
position off. If the cooktop does not work after the cooking
position has cooled down, contact the after-sales service.
Pot detection
The position, size and shape of the cookware used is
automatically detected by the cooktop. Sizes with a diameter of
90 to 340 mm are suitable.
Note: The cooking position indicators may differ from the actual
size and shape of the cookware. This is normal and does not
adversely affect the correct operation of the cooktop.
