IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS ARE VERY IMPORTANT
This manual and the appliance itself provide important safety messages, to be read and observed at all times.
This is the safety alert symbol, pertaining to safety, which alerts users to potential hazards to themselves and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the terms:
DANGER
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will cause serious injury.
WARNING
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could cause serious injury.
All Safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what
can happen if the instructions are not followed.
- The appliance must be disconnected from the power supply before carrying out any installation work.
- Installation and maintenance must be carried out by a qualified technician, in compliance with the manufacturer’s
instructions and local safety regulations. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically stated in
the user manual.
WARNING
-
If the information in this manual is not followed exactly, a fire or explosion may result
causing property damage or injury.
The use of a gas appliance produces heat and humidity in the room. Make sure the room is well-ventilated, or install an
extractor hood with exhaust duct.
In case of prolonged use, additional ventilation may be necessary (by opening a window or increasing the hood
extraction speed).
After use, make sure the knobs are in off position and close the main gas supply cock or the gas cylinder valve.
Overheated oils and fats catch fire easily. Always remain vigilant when cooking foods rich in fat, oil or alcohol (e.g. rum,
cognac, wine).
Keep the packaging materials out of the reach of children.
Before cleaning or maintenance wait for hob to cool down.

PRATICAL ADVICE FOR USING THE BURNERS
This hob has burners of different diameters. For better burner performance,
please stick to the following rules:
- Use pots and pans with bottoms the same width as that of the burners or
slightly larger (see table on the right).
- Only use flat-bottomed pots and pans.
- Use the correct amount of water for cooking foods and keep the pot covered.
- Make sure pots on the grates do not protrude beyond the edge of the hob
- In the case of pans with convex bottoms (WOK), use the support grille
provided, which should be positioned only on the 4 ring burner.
IMPORTANT: improper use of the grids can result in damage to the hob: do
not position the grids upside down or slide them across the hob.
Do not use:
- Cast iron griddles, ollar stones, terracotta pots and pans.
- Heat diffusers such as metal mesh, or any other types.
- Two burners simultaneously for one receptacle (e.g. fish kettle).

HOW TO USE THE HOB
WARNING
Do not let the burner flame extend beyond the edge of the pan.
IMPORTANT: WHEN THE HOB IS IN USE, THE ENTIRE HOB AREA MAY BECOME HOT.
• To ignite one of the burners, turn the relative knob anti-clockwise to the maximum flame setting.
• Press the knob against the control panel to ignite the burner.
• After the burner has ignited, keep the knob pressed for about 5-10 seconds to allow proper device operation.
This burner safety device shuts off the gas supply to the burner if the flame goes out accidentally (because of sudden
draught, an interruption in the gas delivery, boiling over of liquids, etc.).
• The knob must not be pressed for more than 15 sec. If, after that time has elapsed, the burner does not remain lit,
wait at least one minute before trying to light it again.
NOTE: should particular local conditions of the delivered gas make the ignition of burner difficult, it is advisable to repeat
the operation with the knob turned to small flame setting.
The burner might go out when the knob is released. This means that the safety device has not warmed up enough. In this
case, repeat the operations described above.
