Important Safety Instructions


  • Read these instructions carefully before using this product.
  • Proper installation — Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician.
  • Never leave the appliance unattended when in use. Boil over causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.
  • Never use your appliance as a work or storage surface.
  • Wear proper apparel — Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the appliance.
  • Never leave any objects or utensils on the appliance.
  • Do not place or leave any magnetizable objects (eg credit cards, memory cards) or electronic devices (eg computers, MP3 players) near the appliance, as they may be affected by its electromagnetic field.
  • We recommend using plastic or wooden kitchen utensils for cooking with your induction cooktop.
  • Storage in or on appliance — Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
  • Do not place or leave aluminum foil on the cooktop.
  • Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.
  • Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
  • Use only 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.
  • Use proper pan size — This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different size.
  • Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.
  • After use, always turn off the cooking zones and the cooktop as described in this manual (ie by using the touch controls). Do not rely on the pan detection feature to turn off the cooking zones when you remove the pans.
  • Do not allow children to play with the appliance or sit, stand, or climb on it.
  • Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above the appliance. Children climbing on the cooktop could be seriously injured.
  • Do not leave children alone or unattended in the area where the appliance is in use.
  • Children of less than 8 years old must be kept away from the appliance unless continuously supervised. This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years and above, and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge, if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance in a safe way and they understand the hazards involved. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be done by children without supervision.
  • Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be done by a qualified technician.
  • Do not use a steam cleaner to clean your cooktop.

  • If the power supply cable is damaged, it must only be replaced by a qualified technician.
  • Do not operate your cooktop by means of an external timer or separate remote- control system.
  • Do not cook on broken cooktop — If cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
  • 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 burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
