It is an advanced automatic function which connects the hob to a special hood. Both the hob and the hood have an infrared signal communicator. Speed of the fan is defined automatically on basis of mode setting and temperature of the hottest cookware on the hob. You can also operate the fan from the hob manually.
ℹ️ For most of the hoods the remote system is originally deactivated. Activate it before you use the function. For more information refer to hood user manual.
Operating the function automatically
To operate the function automatically set the automatic mode to H1 – H6. The hob is originally set to H5. The hood reacts whenever you operate the hob. The hob recognizes temperature of the cookware automatically and adjusts the speed of the fan.
|Mode H2 3)||On||Fan speed 1||Fan speed 1|
|Mode H3||On||Off||Fan speed 1|
|Mode H4||On||Fan speed 1||Fan speed 1|
|Mode H5||On||Fan speed 1||Fan speed 2|
|Mode H6||On||Fan speed 2||Fan speed 3|
1) The hob detects the boiling process and activates fan speed in accordance with automatic mode.
2) The hob detects the frying process and activates fan speed in accordance with automatic mode.
3) This mode activates the fan and the light and does not rely on the temperature.
Changing the automatic mode
- Deactivate the appliance.
- Touch for 3 seconds. The display comes on and goes off.
- Touch for 3 seconds.
- Touch a few times until comes on.
- Touch of the Timer to select an automatic mode.
ℹ️ To operate the hood directly on the hood panel deactivate the automatic mode of the function.
ℹ️ When you finish cooking and deactivate the hob, the hood fan may still operate for a certain period of time. After that time the system deactivates the fan automatically and prevents you from accidental activation of the fan for the next 30 seconds.
Operating the fan speed manually
You can also operate the function manually. To do that touch when the hob is active. This deactivates automatic operation of the function and allows you to change the fan speed manually. When you press you raise the fan speed by one. When you reach an intensive level and press again you will set fan speed to 0 which deactivates the hood fan. To start the fan again with fan speed 1 touch .
ℹ️ To activate automatic operation of the function, deactivate the hob and activate it again.
Activating the light
You can set the hob to activate the light automatically whenever you activate the hob. To do so set the automatic mode to H1 – H6.
ℹ️ The light on the hood deactivates 2 minutes after deactivating the hob.
HINTS AND TIPS
Refer to Safety chapters.
ℹ️ For induction cooking zones a strong electro-magnetic field creates the heat in the cookware very quickly.
Use the induction cooking zones with suitable cookware.
- The bottom of the cookware must be as thick and flat as possible.
- Ensure pan bases are clean and dry before placing on the hob surface.
- In order to avoid scratches, do not slide or rub the pot across the ceramic glass.
- correct: cast iron, steel, enamelled steel, stainless steel, multi-layer bottom (with a correct marking from a manufacturer).
- not correct: aluminium, copper, brass, glass, ceramic, porcelain.
Cookware is suitable for an induction hob if:
- water boils very quickly on a zone set to the highest heat setting.
- a magnet pulls on to the bottom of the cookware.
- Induction cooking zones adapt to the dimension of the bottom of the cookware automatically.
- The cooking zone efficiency is related to the diameter of the cookware. The cookware with a diameter smaller than the minimum receives only a part of the power generated by the cooking zone.
- For both safety reasons and optimal cooking results, do not use cookware larger than indicated in “Cooking zones specification”. Avoid keeping cookware close to the control panel during the cooking session. This might impact the functioning of the control panel or accidentally activate hob functions.
ℹ️ Refer to “Technical data”.
2 The noises during operation
If you can hear:
- crack noise: cookware is made of different materials (a sandwich construction).
- whistle sound: you use a cooking zone with a high power level and the cookware is made of different materials (a sandwich construction).
- humming: you use a high power level.
- clicking: electric switching occurs.
- hissing, buzzing: the fan operates.
The noises are normal and do not indicate any malfunction.
3. Öko Timer (Eco Timer)
To save energy, the heater of the cooking zone deactivates before the count down timer sounds. The difference in the operation time depends on the heat setting level and the length of the cooking operation.
4. Examples of cooking applications
The correlation between the heat setting of a zone and its consumption of power is not linear. When you increase the heat setting, it is not proportional to the increase of the consumption of power. It means that a cooking zone with the medium heat setting uses less than a half of its power.
ℹ️ The data in the table is for guidance only.
5. Hints and Tips for Hob²Hood
When you operate the hob with the function:
- Protect the hood panel from direct sunlight.
- Do not spot halogen light on the hood panel.
- Do not cover the hob control panel.
- Do not interrupt the signal between the hob and the hood (e.g. with the hand, a cookware handle or a tall pot). See the picture.
The hood in the picture is only exemplary.
ℹ️ Other remotely controlled appliances may block the signal. Do not use any such appliances near to the hob while Hob²Hood is on.
Cooker hoods with the Hob²Hood function
To find the full range of cooker hoods which work with this function refer to our consumer website. The AEG cooker hoods that work with this function must have the symbol .
CARE AND CLEANING
Refer to Safety chapters.
1. General information
- Clean the hob after each use.
- Always use cookware with a clean base.
- Scratches or dark stains on the surface have no effect on how the hob operates.
- Use a special cleaner suitable for the surface of the hob.
- Use a special scraper for the glass.
2. Cleaning the hob
- Remove immediately: melted plastic, plastic foil, sugar and food with sugar, otherwise, the dirt can cause damage to the hob. Take care to avoid burns. Use a special hob scraper on the glass surface at an acute angle and move the blade on the surface.
- Remove when the hob is sufficiently cool: limescale rings, water rings, fat stains, shiny metallic discoloration. Clean the hob with a moist cloth and a nonabrasive detergent. After cleaning, wipe the hob dry with a soft cloth.
- Remove shiny metallic discoloration: use a solution of water with vinegar and clean the glass surface with a cloth.
Refer to Safety chapters.
1. What to do if… 2. If you cannot find a solution…
If you cannot find a solution to the problem yourself, contact your dealer or an Authorised Service Centre. Give the data from the rating plate. Give also three digit letter code for the glass ceramic (it is in the corner of the glass surface) and an error message that comes on. Make sure, you operated the hob correctly. If not the servicing by a service technician or dealer will not be free of charge, also during the warranty period. The instructions about the Service Centre and conditions of guarantee are in the guarantee booklet.
1. Rating plate
2. Cooking zones specification
|Cooking zone||Nominal power (maximum heat setting) [W]||PowerBoost [W]||PowerBoost maximum duration [min]||Cookware diameter [mm]|
|Left front||2300||3700||10||125 – 210|
|Left rear||1800||2800||10||145 – 180|
|Right front||1400||2500||4||125 – 145|
|Right rear||1800||2800||10||145 – 180|
The power of the cooking zones can be different in some small range from the data in the table. It changes with the material and dimensions of the cookware.
For optimal cooking results use cookware no larger than the diameter in the table.
