Somebody always on the watch
The countdown timer can be set for up to 99 minutes. If the optimum cooking time for a particular dish is known from experience, the timer can be set and the hob will switch off automatically when completed. A beep will signal that the food is ready.
The kitchen as a safe environment
The function locks the control panel and prevents the resetting of any parameter, thus making it safe for children if left unattended in the kitchen.
Residual heat indicators (H)
Ensuring even greater safety, residual energy indicators illuminate to reveal which zones of the hob are still radiating heat. As long as an indicator is lit, the respective heating zone should not be touched. It can, however, be used for defrosting or maintaining a dish warm.
