This appliance shall be installed in accordance with the regulations in
force and only used in a well ventilated location. Read the instructions
before installing or using this appliance.
Isolate the appliance from the mains during every maintenance operation.
To do this, remove the plug from the mains or actuate the corresponding
fuse. Close the gas supply.
This appliance should not be connected to a combustion products
evacuation device.
When connecting electrical appliances in the proximity of the appliance,
make sure that connection cables do no come into contact with hot
cooking surfaces.
Thoroughly clean the appliance and accessories before using them for
the first time. This will eliminate any "newness" smells and soiling.
Keep packaging from the appliance and dispose of it properly. Keep
packaging elements away from children.
Do not leave the appliance unattended while in operation
As the appliance’s heating and cooking surfaces get very hot during
operation, always use with care. Always, keep children away from the
appliance.
Very hot fat or oil can easily catch fire, and so if you are cooking with fat
or oil keep an eye on the pan.
DANGER If a pan containing fat or oil catches fire, do not pour water onto
it, as this may cause burns. Cover the pan with at damp cloth to
extinguish the fire and disconnect the cooking appliance.
Never use a malfunctioning appliance.
In the event of a malfunction, turn-off the appliance’s gas and electricity
supply, before calling our technical assistance service.
Make sure that pans are always placed centrally on the gas burner and
never place the pot directly on the burners.
Never place unstable pans or containers on the cooking hob or the
burners, as they may accidentally tip over.
Do not operate the appliance without pots and pans placed on it. Make
sure that all the burner parts are correctly fitted.
Do not heat up any empty pots or pans; this may result in a build-up of
heat.
Be sure to switch the burners to the lowest setting whenever you remove
pots or pans briefly. In this way, you reduce the risk of burns when
working next to flames; you also save gas and reduce pollution.
Pots and pans with thick bottoms can improve heat distribution. The
flame is better exploited and costs can be saved.
Pots and pans with a diameter greater than 28cm should not be used.
Wok supports for concave woks are sold separately.

If a gas tap gets stuck, do not force it. Call our service technician
immediately.
Do not clean the appliance with a steam cleaning apparatus or with water
pressure – risk of short-circuiting.
Whenever the appliance is fitted under a vapour extractor hood and the
hob is in use, always have pots or pans over the burners in use. With an
open flame the vapour extractor hood may become damaged by external
heat development or grease residues in the filter may ignite. Ensure an
adequate air supply when using a vapour extractor hood operating in the
exhaust air mode.
Use of a gas cooker generates heat and humidity in the room where it is
installed. Please be sure you have good kitchen ventilation. Natural
ventilation openings must be kept unobstructed. Prolonged use of the
appliance with few or all burners may call for additional ventilation such
as opening a window or a door, and/or stronger air extraction by an
extractor hood.

Gas tap
This control is used to make the heat setting of the
gas burner.
"Small flame" = lowest setting
"Large flame" = highest setting
Setting procedure:
The "large flame/highest flame" setting is used for
initial boiling. For ongoing cooking, a variable setting
between the "large flame/highest flame" and "small
flame" can be made.
•
•
18
To reduce the flame from high to low, turn the
knob anti-clockwise to the required setting.
To increase the flame, turn the knob clockwise
to the required setting, with a pan on the hob.
Ignition
The knob for the relevant burner is first pushed
down and turned anti-clockwise to "large flame".
Press the knob down firmly and hold for approx. 3
seconds - only then will the gas be released from the
burner and safely ignited by the sparks. When the
burner is ignited release the knob.
Note: if it does not light immediately:
1. check gas supply and burner position.
2. try again while holding for up to 10 seconds.
If for any reason the burner flames are extinguished,
switch off the control knob and wait at least 1 minute
before making a new ignition attempt.
If the burner still doesn’t ignite call the after sales
service.
Switching the
Burners to the
"Off Position"
The burners are turned off by means of switching
the control knob to its initial position.
Note
The use of a gas cooker leads to the production of
heat and moisture in the kitchen. For this reason,
make sure that the room is properly ventilated: Keep
natural ventilation openings open or provide a
mechanical ventilating device (e. g. an exhauster
hood).
Long and intensive use of the appliance may
necessitate additional ventilation, e. g. opening of a
window, or a more effective type of ventilation, such
as a mechanical appliance operating on a higher
power stage.

3. WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR
A few tips on pots
Always use the correct pan for the correct burner!
Do not use small pots or pans on large burners.
Please see the below table for the correct pot sizes.
Auxiliary burner
Semi-Rapid burner
Rapid burner
Triple Crown Wok burner
Recommended pan
diameter
60 - 140 mm
150 - 200 mm
210 - 260 mm
240 - 280 mm
Placing a pot of the correct size on the correct
burner will save you energy, time and money.
Warning:
20
•
Make sure that pans are always placed centrally
on the gas burner and never place the pot
directly on the burners.
•
The pots should not come onto, or in any way, in
contact with the countertop.
Notes on cooking
using the wok
burner
The diameter of the saucepan or frying pan base
must be no greater than 280 mm. Using larger pans
could cause the hot waste gas flowing out from
underneath the pan to damage the worktop or a wall
that is not heat-resistant.
Note:
When using a concave wok pan, please use the
additional wok support which has to be placed on
the main pan support over the wok burner.
When using your concave wok pan, please make
sure that the wok pan is placed over the wok
support; the bottom of the wok pan is not to come in
direct contact with the main pan support or burner.
21
4. CARE AND CLEANING
How to care for
your gas hob:
Cleaning
If cared for properly, your gas hob will continue to
look good for a long time, and cleaning will also be
easier.
Use a sponge and soapy water (or a specialist
cleaning product) to care for stainless steel
components, but always wait until the appliance has
cooled down completely. In the event of yellowing; a
special stainless steel cleaning solution available in
the trade is recommended. Use a clean, dry cloth to
polish the hob, or better still a chamois leather.
The control knobs can be removed by pulling them
upwards. Never use pliers or attempt to lever off the
controls.
Unsuitable cleaning agents:
Do not under any circumstances use an abrasive
sponge or a scouring agent. Do not use acidic
substances (lemon juice, vinegar etc.). Nor should
any chemically aggressive cleaners such as oven
sprays or stain removers be used.
22
Your burner and
burner cap
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
You should only start to clean the burner cap
once it has cooled to its normal temperature
after use, i.e. when you can touch it with your
bare hand.
The burner cap should be cleaned with hot
water and a normal cleaning agent, using a soft
sponge or cloth.
If the cap is very dirty, we recommend that you
soak the removable parts in warm water before
attempting to clean them.
Avoid scraping off food residues if possible.
Cleaning the burner cap with caustic chemicals
is just as damaging as using acids or paint
stripper.
Rough pan scourers or sand paper will ruin the
surface just as scouring powder and glass wool
do.
Do not clean the burner cap in a dishwasher.
Once the surface of the appliance has been
cleaned, ensure that the burner cap is put back on
properly; otherwise the electrical ignition will not
connect. The burner and the burner cap must be
completely dry before they are replaced.
23
Pan support
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Only clean the pan support once it has cooled to
its normal temperature, i.e. when you can touch
it with your bare hand.
The pan support can be removed for cleaning.
The pan support should be cleaned with hot
water and a standard cleaning agent, using a
soft sponge or cloth and afterwards, dried
thoroughly with a towel.
Never use aggressive or abrasive cleaning
products.
Avoid scraping off food residues if possible.
Cleaning the burner cap with caustic chemicals
is just as damaging as using acids or paint
stripper.
Rough pan scourers or sand paper will ruin the
surface just as scouring powder and glass wool
do.
Do not clean the pan stands in a dishwasher.
The pan stands must be completely dry before they
are replaced.
