The different functions of the hob

Description of the heating elements

The heating elements are circular in shape and turn red in colour only20-30seconds after they have been turned on.

Combined halogen and electrical heating elements.

The cooktop utilises heating elements which are made up of two halogen lamps and a circular heating element. This combination provides ideal heat distribution across the entire surface of the cooking area without compromising the advantages of the halogen lamps. The main characteristic of halogen lamps is that they produce an instantaneous emission of a large quantity of light and heat, which means:

a rapid source of heat similar to that provided by gas burners;

an equally rapid elimination of the heat source. Halogen lamps are extremely easy to use and their operation is similar to that of other heating elements. Please refer to the table 1.

The control knobs

Each cooking area is equipped with a control knob to regulate the temperature at any time from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 12. The table 1 provides information on the settings indicated on the knobs and the corresponding, recommended uses.

The “ ON” indicator light (B)

This light comes on when one of the heating elements has been turned on.

Residual heat indicator light (D)

This light indicates that the temperature of one or more cooking areas is above 60°C, even thought the elements have been turned off. Some models come equipped with four such indicator lights, one for each of the four cooking areas.

Maintenance and care

Advice on using your appliance

To get the best from your hob, it is vital that you follow a few fundamental rules during cooking and when preparing food.

Use pans with a flat bottom so they adhere fully to the heating zone.

Always use pans whose diameter covers the cooking zone fully so that all the available heat can be used.

Make sure the pan base is always clean and dry, to guarantee good contact and long life for the cooking zones and pans alike.

Avoid using pans used normally on gas burners. The concentration of heat on gas burners can warp the bottom of the pan, consequently you would never obtain the desired result when using the pan on the glass ceramic hob.

Never leave a cooking zone on without a pan on it as the maximum heat level would be reached very quickly, which could damage the heating elements.

The glass ceramic hob is resistant to thermal and mechanical shocks. However, it may break due to a shock caused by a sharp object. In this case, unplug the appliance immediately and contact an authorisedafter-salesservice centre to have it repaired.

Always keep your hob clean. Before proceeding with maintenance operations, check that all the cooking zones are turned off and have cooled down completely.

Stainless steel frame (only on some models)

Stainless steel can stain as an effect of enduring contact with limescale in water or as an effect of highly aggressive detergents (containing phosphorus). We recommend you rinse and dry it thoroughly after maintenance. It is preferable to remove any water spills immediately.

Hob care

The vitroceramic glass used for the heating surface is smooth and poreless and it is also resistant to thermal shocks and to mechanical shocks under normal conditions of use. In order to preserve these properties, we recommend you care for your hob as follows:

for ordinary maintenance, just wipe it with a damp sponge and dry it thoroughly using paper towels.

If the hob is dirty, rub clean using a special cleaner suitable for vitroceramic glass, rinse off and dry thoroughly.

food residue and dirt can be removed using a special scraper. Do this as soon as possible, do not wait for the hob to cool down in order to avoid incrustations. For excellent results, use a special stainless steel wool pad for vitroceramic glass cleaning soaked in soapy water.

When the hob is clean, you can apply a special product for the care and protection of the same: this type of product leaves an invisible film on the surface of the hob to protect the same against any spills and boiled-overfood. It is best if you do this when the hob is lukewarm or cold.

Make sure you always rinse the hob with clean water and dry it thoroughly: otherwise the cleaning products could become encrusted onto the hob during subsequent cooking.

Recommendations

Never use abrasive or corrosive substances, such as aerosol cleaners for grills and ovens, stain removers or rust removers, scouring powders and abrasive sponges: even the delicate ones could scratch the hob surface irreversibly.

We recommend youkeep all items which could meltaway from the hob, such asplastic utensils, sugar or products with a high sugar content. Should liquid boil over onto the hob surface,remove it immediately (while the hob is still hot) using a razor blade scraper, in order to avoid damaging the surface.

Use this hob exclusively for cooking. Do not place items on the hob when the same is not in use. Do not use the hob as a work surface (by placing lids, saucepans or dishcloths on it, for example), nor as a chopping board.

Never leave aluminium wrappers, aluminium foil and plastic cookware on the hob when hot or still warm.

Do not use steam cleaners or high pressure cleaners to clean your appliance.

Do not place metal items on the hob (such as knives, spoons, lids, etc.).

Never heat up unopened tins: they could burst.

The guarantee does not cover damage to the hob caused by incorrect use.
