Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply make sure that
the voltage and frequency correspond
to the rating on the data plate,
otherwise the appliance could be
damaged.
This data must correspond in order to
avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any doubt.
This appliance may be connected
via a plug and fused socket. If you
wish to connect it to an isolator switch,
or if the appliance is supplied without a
plug, it must be installed and
connected by a suitably qualified and
competent person in strict accordance
with local and national safety
regulations. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for damage caused by
incorrect installation or connection.
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective earthing
system which complies with local and
national safety regulations. It is most
important that this basic safety
requirement is present and regularly
tested, and where there is any doubt
the electrical system in the house is
checked by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
4
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electrical supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
For safety reasons the drawer must
only be used after it has been built
in. This is necessary to ensure that all
electrical components are shielded.
Never open the casing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components is highly dangerous to
the user and can cause operational
faults.
Installation work, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by
suitably qualified and competent
persons in accordance with national
and local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held liable.
While the appliance is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service engineer
authorised by the manufacturer.
Otherwise the guarantee is invalidated.
Warning and Safety instructions
During installation, maintenance
and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains
electricity supply. The appliance is only
completely isolated from the electricity
supply when:
– the mains fuse is withdrawn,
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable),
– or it is switched off at the isolator or
at the wall socket and the plug
removed.
Ensure that current is not supplied to
the appliance while maintenance or
repair work is being carried out.
Correct usage
This appliance complies with all
relevant legal safety requirements.
Incorrect use can lead to personal
injury and damage to property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the appliance, you
should read these operating
instructions carefully before using it for
the first time. They contain important
notes on safety, operation and care.
This appliance is intended for
domestic use only to warm plates,
dishes and other crockery.
Any other usage is not supported by
the manufacturer and could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for damage caused by
incorrect or improper use of the
appliance.
Depending on the temperature
selected and the length of time the
appliance is being used, the inside of
the drawer can get extremely hot
during use, and remain hot for some
time after being switched off.
To avoid burning yourself, use oven
gloves when removing crockery
from the drawer. However, do not let
oven gloves get damp or wet, as this
causes heat to transfer through the
material more quickly with the risk of
scalding or burning yourself.
To minimise the risk of burning
yourself on the inside of the drawer,
always pull it out as far as it will go
before removing crockery.
5
Warning and Safety instructions
This appliance is not a toy! Do not
let children access the drawer or
its controls. Supervise its use by the
elderly or infirm.

When the drawer is closed, you can tell
when the appliance is switched on
because the On/Off switch illuminates
through the hole in the front of the
drawer.
9
Operation
Using the drawer
Selecting a temperature
^ Place crockery inside the drawer.
The temperature control allows you to
select any temperature between ca. 30
and 50 °C.
^ Select the temperature required.
^ Switch on the appliance (j).
The switch lights up.
^ Close the drawer.
Switch the appliance off (k) before
removing the heated crockery.
Pull the drawer out to its full extent
before unloading it.
The temperature selector must only
be turned in a clockwise direction as
far as it will go and then back again.
Otherwise it will be damaged.
When the temperature is reached, the
heating element switches itself off.
When the temperature falls below that
selected, the heating element switches
on again automatically.
The optimum temperature for warming
cups and glasses is approx. 40 °C.
Drinks poured into warmed cups do not
cool down so quickly, but cups are still
not to hot to handle.
10
Operation
Heating up times
Capacity
Various factors will affect the heating up
times:
The quantity that can be loaded will
depend to a great extent on the type
and size of your own crockery.
– the material and thickness of the
crockery
– the quantity
– how the crockery is arranged
– the temperature setting.
Example
– 25 Cappuccino cups, C 88 mm
or
– 56 Espresso cups, C 60 mm
It is therefore not possible to state
precise times.
However, the following information can
be used as a guide:
At a temperature setting of approx. 50
°C, it takes approx. 30-40 minutes to
heat crockery through to an even
temperature.
As you use the plate warmer, you will
get to know which setting suits your
own needs best.
Place cups and glasses upside
down in the drawer so that they
warm through thoroughly.
The maximum load capacity of the
appliance is 15 kg.
11
Cleaning and care
Appliance front, control panel
and interior
^ All surfaces and controls should be
cleaned using warm water with a little
washing up liquid applied with a soft
sponge or cloth.
^ Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
Allow the appliance to cool down to
a safe temperature before cleaning.
Aluminium fronts
Aluminium is affected by the way that
light falls on it, by the surrounding
environment and by the angle you
observe it from.
Aluminium surfaces and controls
may suffer discolouration or damage
if soiling is left on them for too long.
Remove any soiling straight away.
The appliance front is susceptible to
scratches and abrasions.
Avoid:
