Claims

1. A user interface for a hob that comprises at least two cooking zones, the user interface comprising:

a touchscreen interface (18) for presenting operating parameters and input elements (20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48) for adjusting such operating parameters ,

wherein the touchscreen interface (18) is configured to display for each of the cooking zones an input element (20, 22, 24, 26) for selection of the respective cooking zone; wherein in a first interface mode the input elements (20, 22, 24, 26) for selection of the cooking zones are represented in a normal display mode that is simultaneously applied to the input elements for all cooking zones; and wherein in a second interface mode the input element (24) for a selected cooking zone is represented in a highlighted display mode different from the display mode applied to the input elements (20, 22, 26) for the remaining cooking zones.

2. The user interface of claim 1, wherein in the second interface mode the input element (24) for the selected cooking zone is represented together with at least one further input element (30, 40) for adjusting an operating parameter of the selected cooking zone.

3. The user interface of claim 2, wherein in the second interface mode the input elements (24, 30, 40) for the selected cooking zone are displayed in a central region of the touchscreen interface (18), and the input elements (20, 22, 26) for the remaining cooking zones are displayed in a peripheral region of the touchscreen interface.

4. The user interface of claim 2 or 3, wherein the input element (30, 38, 40) for adjusting an operating parameter of the selected cooking zone is formed by displaying a representation of possible values for the operating parameter

5. The user interface of any one of the preceding claims, further comprising at least one touch sensitive key element (12, 14, 16, 34) next to the touchscreen interface (18) .

6. The user interface of any one of the preceding claims, wherein the touchscreen interface (18) comprises a polychromatic display.

7. The user interface of any one of the preceding claims, wherein the touchscreen interface (18) is configured to display input elements and parameters that relate to temporarily disabled functions in a semitransparent or faded fashion .

8. The user interface of any one of the preceding claims, wherein the touchscreen interface (18) is configured for operation of at least two adjacent cooking zones as a single combined cooking zone by displaying the respective input elements and parameter indications as a single element (36, 38) that applies to all the cooking zones which constitute the combined cooking zone.

9. The user interface of any one of the preceding claims, wherein the touchscreen interface (18) is configured for operation in a child-safe mode in which all input elements are deactivated until input of a passkey at a single input element or activation of several input elements in a predetermined unlock seguence.

10. A hob comprising:

a plurality of cooking zones each having at least one heating element for heating the respective cooking zone;

a user interface (18) as it is defined in any one of the preceding claims; and

a controller coupled to the user interface and the heating elements for controlling the heating elements based on inputs received at the user interface.

11. The hob of claim 10, further comprising means for detecting the presence or absence of cooking ware in a cooking zone, wherein the user interface is configured to display input elements of the respective cooking zone when cooking ware is detected in such cooking zone and/or wherein the controller is configured to deactivate the heating element of the respective cooking zone when an absence of cooking ware in such cooking zone is detected.

12. The hob of claim 10 or 11, further comprising means for detecting the temperature of a cooking zone, of cooking ware present in said cooking zone and/or of a food item being processed in said cooking zone, wherein the controller further is configured to adapt the operation of the heating elements based on data received from said temperature detecting means.

13. The hob of any of claims 10 to 12, wherein the touchscreen interface (18) is configured for input and output of timer data for at least one of the cooking zones, wherein the controller further is configured to adapt the operation of the heating elements based on the said timer data.

14. The hob of any of claims 10 to 13, further comprising means for generating audio signals coupled to the controller, wherein the controller further is configured to activate the means for generating audio signals in dependency of sensor data, user inputs and/or a selected operation function.
