Before using your New Hob

  • Read this guide, taking special note of the ‘Safety Warnings’ section.
  • Remove any protective film that may still be on your ceramic hob.


Using the Touch Controls

  • The controls respond to touch, so you don’t need to apply any pressure.
  • Use the ball of your finger, not its tip.
  • You will hear a beep each time a touch is registered.
  • Make sure the controls are always clean, dry, and that there is no object (e.g. a utensil or a cloth) covering them. Even a thin film of water may make the controls difficult to operate.

Choosing the right Cookware

Do not use cookware with jagged edges or a curved base.

Make sure that the base of your pan is smooth, sits flat against the glass, and is the same size as the cooking zone. Always centre your pan on the cooking zone.

Always lift pans off the ceramic hob-do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.



Using your Hob

To start cooking

1. Touch the ON/OFF key, and the power indicator will display.

Note: Each cooking zone is independent of others.
2. Place a suitable pan on the cooking zone that you wish to use. Make sure the bottom of the pan and the surface of the cooking zone are clean and dry.

3. Select the heat setting by turning the “knob” control in a clockwise direction.
If you don’t choose a heat setting within 1 minute, the Ceramic hob will automatically switch off. You will need to start again at step 1.
You can modify the heat setting between 1 and 9 level at any time during cooking.

Do not leave the cooking unattended.

When you have finished cooking

1. Turn the cooking zone off by turning “knob” control to”OFF”. The Residual heat indicator will flash.

Using your Hob - When you have finished cooking 2

2. Turn the whole cooktop off by touching the ON/OFF key

The residual heat indicator will flash when the cooking zone is too hot to touch. It will disappear when the surface has cooled down to a safe temperature. It can also be used as an energy saving function if you want to heat further pans, use the hotplate that is still hot.


Residual Heat Warning

When the hob has been operating for some time, there will be some residual heat. The indicator “” appears to warn you to keep away from the particular zone.

Auto Shutdown

Safety feature of the hob is auto shut down. This occurs whenever you forget to switch off a cooking zone. The default shutdown times are shown in the table below:

Power level 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Default working timer (hour) 8 8 8 4 4 4 2 2 2


Cooking Guidelines

Take care when frying as the oil and fat heat up very quickly. At extremely high temperatures oil and fat can ignite spontaneously and this may present a serious fire risk.

Cooking Tips

  • When food comes to the boil, reduce the power setting.
  • Using a lid will reduce cooking times and save energy by retaining the heat.
  • Minimise the amount of liquid or fat to reduce cooking times.
  • Start cooking on a high setting and reduce the setting when the food has heated through.

Simmering, cooking rice

  • Simmering occurs below boiling point, at around 85°C, when bubbles are just rising
    occasionally to the surface of the cooking liquid. It is the key to delicious soups and tender stews because the flavours develop without overcooking the food. You should also cook egg-based and flour thickened sauces below boiling point.
  • Some tasks, including cooking rice by the absorption method, may require a setting higher than the lowest setting to ensure the food is cooked properly in the time recommended.

Searing steak
To cook juicy flavoursome steaks:

  1. Stand the meat at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.
  2. Heat up a heavy-based frying pan.
  3. Brush both sides of the steak with oil. Drizzle a small amount of oil into the hot pan and then lower the meat onto the hot pan.
  4. Turn the steak only once during cooking. The exact cooking time will depend on the thickness of the steak and how cooked you want it. Times may vary from about 2 ­ 8 minutes per side. Press the steak to gauge how cooked it is ­ the firmer it feels the more ‘well done’ it will be.
  5. Leave the steak to rest on a warm plate for a few minutes to allow it to relax and become tender before serving.


For stir-frying

  1. Choose a ceramic compatible flat-based wok or a large frying pan.
  2. Have all the ingredients and equipment ready. Stir-frying should be quick. If cooking large quantities, cook the food in several smaller batches.
  3. Preheat the pan briefly and add two tablespoons of oil.
  4. Cook any meat first, put it aside and keep warm.
  5. Stir-fry the vegetables. When they are hot but still crisp, turn the cooking zone to a lower setting, return the meat to the pan and add your sauce.
  6. Stir the ingredients gently to make sure they are heated through.
  7. Serve immediately.

Care and Cleaning

What? How? Important!
Everyday soiling on glass (fingerprints, marks, stains left by food or nonsugary spillovers on the glass) 1. Switch the power to the cooktop off.

2. Apply a cooktop cleaner while the glass is still warm (but not hot!)

3. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.

4. Switch the power to the cooktop back on.

• When the power to the cooktop is switched off, there will be no ‘hot surface’ indication but the cooking zone may still be hot! Take extreme care.

• Heavy-duty scourers, some nylon scourers and harsh/abrasive cleaning agents may scratch the glass. Always read the label to check if your cleaner or scourer is suitable.

• Never leave cleaning residue on the cooktop: the glass may become stained.

Boil overs, melts, and hot sugary spills on the glass Remove these immediately with a fish slice, palette knife or razor blade scraper suitable for ceramic glass cooktops, but beware of hot cooking zone surfaces:

1. Switch the power to the cooktop off at the wall.

2. Hold the blade or utensil at a 30° angle and scrape the soiling or spill to a cool area of the cooktop.

3. Clean the soiling or spill up with a dish cloth or paper towel.

4. Follow steps 2 to 4 for ‘Everyday soiling on glass’ above.

• Remove stains left by melts and sugary food or spillovers as soon as possible. If left to cool on the glass, they may be difficult to remove or even permanently damage the glass surface.

• Cut hazard: when the safety cover is retracted, the blade in a scraper is razor-sharp. Use with extreme care and always store safely and out of reach of children.

Spillovers on the touch controls 1. Switch the power to the cooktop off.

2. Soak up the spill

3. Wipe the touch control area with a clean damp sponge or cloth.

4. Wipe the area completely dry with a paper towel.

5. Switch the power to the cooktop back on.

• The cooktop may beep and turn itself off, and the touch controls may not function while there is liquid on them. Make sure you wipe the touch control area dry before turning the cooktop back on.



Problem Possible causes What to do
The cooktop cannot Be turned on. No power. Make sure the cooktop is connected to the power supply and that it is switched on.

Check whether there is a power outage in your home or area. If you’ve checked everything and the problem persists, contact the Technika service department.

The touch controls are difficult to operate. There may be a slight film of water over the controls or you may be using the tip of your finger when touching the controls. Make sure the touch control area is dry and use the ball of your finger when touching the controls.
The glass is being scratched. Rough-edged cookware.

Unsuitable, abrasive scourer or cleaning products being used.

Use cookware with flat and smooth bases. See ‘Choosing the right cookware’. Do not slide any cookware on the hob.

See ‘Care and cleaning’.
