7Environmental protection
Environmentalprotection In this section, you can find information about saving
energy and disposing of the appliance.
Energy-saving advice
■ Always use the correct lid for each pan. Cooking
without a lid uses a lot more energy. Use a glass lid
to provide visibility and avoid having to lift the lid.
■ Use pans with flat bases. Bases that are not flat use
a lot more energy.
■ The diameter of the pan base must match the size of
the hotplate. Please note: pan manufacturers usually
provide the diameter for the top of the pan, which is
usually larger than the diameter of the pan base.
■ Use a small pan for small amounts of food. A large
pan which is not full uses a lot of energy.
■ Use little water when cooking. This saves energy and
preserves all the vitamins and minerals in
vegetables.
■ Select the lowest power level to maintain cooking. If
the power level is too high, energy is wasted.
Environmentally-friendly disposal
Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-friendly
manner.
fInduction cooking
Inductioncooking Advantages of induction cooking
Induction cooking is very different from traditional
cooking methods, as heat builds up directly in the item
of cookware. This offers numerous advantages:
■ Saves time when boiling and frying.
■ Saves energy.
■ Easier to care for and clean. Spilled food does not
burn on as quickly.
■ Heat control and safety – the hob increases or
decreases the heat supply as soon as the user
changes the setting. The induction hotplate stops the
heat supply as soon as the cookware is removed
from the hotplate, without having to switch it off first.
Cookware
Only use ferromagnetic cookware for induction cooking,
such as:
■ Cookware made from enamelled steel
■ Cookware made from cast iron
■ Special induction-compatible cookware made from
stainless steel.
To check whether your cookware is suitable for
induction cooking, refer to the section on
~ "Cookware check".
To achieve a good cooking result, the ferromagnetic
area on the base of the pan should match the size of
the hotplate. If a hotplate does not detect an item of
cookware, try placing it on another hotplate with a
smaller diameter.
If the only hotplate being used is the flexible cooking
zone, larger cookware that is particularly suited to this
zone can be used. You can find information on
positioning cookware in the section on ~ "Flex Zone".
This appliance is labelled in accordance with
European Directive 2012/19/EU concerning
used electrical and electronic appliances
(waste electrical and electronic equipment -
WEEE). The guideline determines the
framework for the return and recycling of used
appliances as applicable throughout the EU.

Some induction cookware does not have a fully
ferromagnetic base:
■ If the base of the cookware is only partially
ferromagnetic, only the area that is ferromagnetic will
heat up. This may mean that heat will not be
distributed evenly. The non-ferromagnetic area may
not heat up to a sufficient temperature for cooking.
■ The ferromagnetic area will also be reduced if the
material from which the base of the cookware is
made contains aluminium, for example. This may
mean that the cookware will not become sufficiently
hot or even that it will not be detected.
Unsuitable pans
Never use diffuser hobs or pans made from:
■ common thin steel
■ glass
■ earthenware
■ copper
■ aluminium
Properties of the base of the cookware
The material(s) from which the base of the cookware is
made can affect the cooking result. Using pots and
pans made from materials that distribute heat evenly
through them, such as stainless-steel pans with a three-
layer base, saves time and energy.
Use cookware with a flat base; if the base of the
cookware is uneven, this may impair the heat supply.
Absence of pan or unsuitable size
If no pan is placed on the selected hotplate, or if it is
made of unsuitable material or is not the correct size,
the power level displayed on the hotplate indicator will
flash. Place a suitable pan on the hotplate to stop the
flashing. If this takes more than 90 seconds, the
hotplate will switch off automatically.
Empty pans or those with a thin base
Do not heat empty pans, nor use pans with a thin base.
The hob is equipped with an internal safety system.
However, an empty pan may heat up so quickly that the
"automatic switch off" function may not have time to
react and the pan may reach very high temperatures.
The base of the pan could melt and damage the glass
on the hob. In this case, do not touch the pan and
switch the hotplate off. If it fails to work after it has
cooled down, please contact the Technical Assistance
Service.
Pan detection
Each hotplate has a lower limit for pan detection. This
depends on the diameter of the ferromagnetic area of
the cookware and the material from which its base is
made. For this reason, you should always use the
hotplate that best matches the diameter of the base of
the pan.

The hotplates
Residual heat indicator
The hob has a residual heat indicator for each hotplate.
This indicates that a hotplate is still hot. Do not touch a
hotplate while the residual heat indicator is lit up.
The following are shown depending on the amount of
residual heat:
■ Display •: High temperature
■ Display œ: Low temperature
If you remove the cookware from the hotplate during
cooking, the residual heat indicator and the selected

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.
■ You can find recommendations for energy-efficient
cooking in section ~ "Environmental protection"

cFrying Sensor
FryingSensor This function can be used to fry food while maintaining
the suitable frying pan temperature.
The cooking zones that have this function are identified
by the roasting function symbol.
Advantages when frying
■ The hotplate only heats up if this is required to
maintain the temperature. This saves energy and
prevents the oil or fat from overheating.
■ The roasting function reports when the empty frying
pan has reached the optimum temperature for
adding oil and then for adding the food.
Notes
■ Do not place a lid on the pan. Otherwise, the
function does not activate correctly. You can use a
splash guard to prevent splashes of grease.
■ Use suitable oil or fat for frying. If butter, margarine,
extra virgin olive oil or lard is used, set heat setting
1 or 2.
■ Never leave a frying pan, with or without food,
unattended when it is being heated.
■ If the hotplate is a higher temperature than the
cookware or vice versa, the frying sensor will not be
activated correctly.
For frying with the frying sensor
Frying pans that are perfect for using with the frying
sensor can be purchased from specialist retailers or
through our technical after-sales service. Quote the
relevant reference number:
■ HEZ390210 15 cm frying pan.
■ HEZ390220 19 cm frying pan.
■ HEZ390230 21 cm frying pan.
■ HEZ390250 28 cm frying pan. Only recommended
for the FlexPlus cooking zone.
These frying pans have a non-stick coating so that you
require only a small amount of oil to fry food.
Notes
■ The frying sensor has been configured specifically
for this type of frying pan.
■ Ensure that the diameter of the base of the frying
pan corresponds to the size of the hotplate. Put the
frying pan in the centre of the hotplate.
■ Using a frying pan of a different size or one that is
poorly positioned on the flexible cooking zones may
result in the frying sensor not being activated. See
the section on ~ "Flex Zone".
■ Other frying pans may overheat. They may reach a
temperature above or below the selected
temperature setting. Try the lowest temperature
setting to begin with and change it if necessary.

Noises
Why I can hear noises while I'm cooking?
Noises may be generated while using the hob depending on the base material of the cookware. These noises are a normal part of induc-
tion technology. They do not indicate a defect.
Possible noises:
A low humming noise like the one a transformer makes:
Occurs when cooking at a high heat setting. The noise disappears or becomes quieter when the heat setting is reduced.
Low whistling noise:
Occurs when the cookware is empty. This noise disappears when water or food is added to the cookware.
