Yes with Grounded Plug
- This feature makes switching on faster and more convenient.
- Press the knob on the gas cooktop, rotate to the desired setting and release.
- The electronics ignite the flame immediately and keep it burning without further intervention - the knob can be released.
Electronic Flame Monitoring
- Based on the principle of ionization, this feature provides maximum safety.
- If a flame is extinguished unintentionally, it is re-ignited immediately.
- If re-ignition fails, the gas supply to all burners is automatically interrupted and shut off.
- All Series 400 control knobs are designed to prevent unintentional activation of the appliance, because they need to be both pressed and rotated.
- Before a knob can be turned, it must be pushed through a clearly felt stop position.
- The temperature selection knobs on electrical appliances may then be turned in either direction, even past the zero position.
- The setting selected for a cooking zone via a particular knob position is then retained.
- A discreet circular orange light indicates active cooking zones.
- In gas appliances, rotation of the knob is limited to one direction; illumination of the ring is not possible.
"Personalize Your Custom Cooktop"
- Allows specialty pieces to be combined with gas and electric units.
