The stainless steel frame of the ceramic hob gets very hot


  • The stainless steel frame of the electric hob gets very hot
  • I cannot touch the frame with my finger
Applies to
  • integrated electric hob
  • freestanding cooker with electric hob

1.  Do not place hot pans on the frame of the hob.

In case of a radiant heated hob, the surface of the glass can be heated up to approx. 480 ° C. This heat can partially transfer to the frame and heats it up.

2. This is not a malfunction of the hob. The frame does not need to be touched to operate the hob.
