This chapter explains how to set a hotplate. The table 

shows heat settings and cooking times for various 

meals.

Switching the hob on and off

Switch the hob on and off using the main switch.
To switch on: Touch the

sounds. The symbols for the hotplates and the functions 

available at this time light up. The hob is ready to use.
To switch off: Touch the

 symbol until the indicators 

go out. The residual heat indicator remains lit until the 

hotplates have cooled down sufficiently.

Notes

The hob switches off automatically if all hotplates 

have been switched off for more than 20 seconds.

The selected settings are stored for four seconds 

after the hob has been switched off. If you switch it 

on again during this time, the hob will operate using 

the previously stored settings.

Setting a hotplate

Set the desired heat setting in the settings area.
Heat setting 1 = lowest setting.
Heat setting 9 = highest setting.
Every heat setting has an intermediate setting. This is 

marked with

Chef's recommendations

Recommendations

When heating up puree, cream soups and thick 

sauces, stir occasionally.

Set heat setting 8 to 9 for preheating.

When cooking with the lid on, turn the heat setting 

down as soon as steam escapes between the lid 

and the cookware. Steam does not need to escape 

for a good cooking result.

After cooking, keep the lid on the cookware until you 

serve the food.

To cook with the pressure cooker, observe the 

manufacturer's instructions.

Do not cook food for too long, otherwise the 

nutrients will be lost. The kitchen clock can be used 

to set the optimum cooking time.

For a more healthy cooking result, smoking oil 

should be avoided.

To brown food, fry small portions in succession.

Cookware may reach high temperatures while the 

food is cooking. We recommend that you use oven 

gloves.
