Using the plate warmer
Functions
Control area
The plate warmer is intended exclusively for heating crockery.
Do not use the appliance to re-heat,
cook or keep food or drinks warm.
The condensation from the food /
drinks could lead to moisture damage in the appliance.
The appliance operates with a hot air
system. A fan distributes the heat
around the drawer. The hot air circulated heats up all the plates quickly and
evenly.
A protective grille prevents any contact
with the heating element and fan.
The rail in the drawer separates the
control panel, heating element and fan
from the rest of the drawer. This prevents plates from being placed too near
the control panel and geting damaged
when the drawer is pushed in.
The floor of the plate drawer is fitted
with a non-slip mat to prevent plates
and dishes sliding about when the
drawer is opened and closed.
The controls consist of the temperature
control and the On / Off switch. These
are only visible when the drawer is
open.
Selecting a temperature
The temperature control is used to adjust the temperature setting.
Only turn the temperature control in
a clockwise direction and then back
again. Stop when you feel a resistance. Forcing the control past this
point will damage it.
The heating will switch off automatically
when the temperature selected is
reached. It will switch back on again as
soon as the temperature drops below
this level.
8
Using the plate warmer
A temperature range of between
approx. 30 and 80 °C can be set.
Items to be heated can be divided into
two general groups:
– Cups / glasses
– Serving dishes / plates
Recommended temperatures for
pre-heating:
– approx. 40 °C for cups or glasses.
A hot drink placed in a cup warmed
to this temperature will cool down
more slowly, while the cup itself can
be touched easily (i.e. it is not too
hot).
– approx. 60 °C for serving dishes or
plates.
Food will stay hot for a long time if it
is placed on plates heated to this
temperature and the plates will not
be too hot to hold when serving.
The temperatures settings are shown
as symbols rather than individual °C.
Each symbol represents the best setting for the group shown:
– b: for cups and glasses
– r: for serving dishes, bowls and
plates
Switching on the appliance
The appliance is switched on using the
On / Off switch.
To switch on:
^ Press the On / Off switch. The switch
will light up.
When the drawer is closed the indicator on the front of the appliance lights
up to show the appliance is switched
on.
Capacity
The plate warmer is available in two
different heights:
– EGW 60x - 14: 141 mm high.
– EGW 60x - 29: 289 mm high.
The height determines the capacity of
the appliance.
The following loading examples are
given as a guide only.
The quantity which can be loaded will
depend to a great extent on the type
and size of your own crockery.
