before heating to avoid explosion.
8 Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used
by or near children.
9 Do not touch hot surfaces. Use dry pot holders to hold the
handles of pots and pans.
10 Use only dry potholders - moist or damp potholders on hot
surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let the
potholder touch hot cooking zone. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend
that a person with physical or mental impairments not use
the appliance unless accompanied by a qualified person. The
same recommendation applies to children.
11 When the unit is on, do not touch outside the control panel
as the surface may contain residual heat. It is important to
be aware that the unit's surface will remain hot for a short
period of time after use. Do not touch hot surfaces.
- Clean cooktop with Caution - If a wet sponge or
cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burns. Some cleaners can produce steam or noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.


Do not use steam cleaners or high-pressure cleaners to clean the
cooktop, as this may result in electric shock.
Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord
or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in
any manner. Return appliance to the nearest authorized service
facility for examination, repair, or adjustment.
Do not cook on broken cooktop. If cooktop
breaks, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock.
1 To reduce the risk of fire, do not let any objects (glass, paper,
etc.) obstruct the inlet and outlet of your cooktop.

11 While cooking, any overflowed fat or oil on the cooktop may
ignite. There is a risk of burning and fire; therefore, control
the cooking process at all times. The use of accessory attach-
ments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may
cause injuries. Items with a magnetic field such as: radios,
televisions, credit cards, cassette tapes etc., can affect the
unit. The marked electrical rating should be at least as great
as the electrical rating on the appliance.
12 To prevent accidents and achieve optimal ventilation, allow
for sufficient space around the cooking area.
13 Use proper cookware size - This appliance is equipped
with four or five cooking zones of different sizes. Choose
cookware with a flat bottom large enough to cover the unit
heating surface. The use of undersized cookware will expose
