Lighting the appliance
The ignition system works by means of a battery. Details on how to
replace the battery are given on page 27.
Hotplate & Grill
To light
1. Lift up the lid. You cannot use the hotplate when the lid is down.
2. Push in the control knob and turn it to the large flame symbol
(highest setting), and press the ignition button immediately. When
the burner has lit release the button
3. Leave the grill door open when you are using the grill.
Warning: If the ignition button is not pressed immediately a build up of
gas may cause the flame to spread.
For your safety
If you close the lid of the appliance while any of the hotplate
burners are lit the gas will go out. This is because it would be
dangerous if the burners stayed on when the lid was closed.
Always use the control knob to turn off a burner. Do not use
the lid as a cut-off device. This will only cut off the gas when
the lid is closed. The gas will flow again when the lid is
opened.
Please note: If you have any trouble lighting a hotplate burner turn all
the hotplate control knobs off and make sure the hotplate burner parts
have been replaced correctly.
See page 21 for more information.

The oven
To light:
1 Open the oven door.
2 Push in the control knob and turn it to gas mark 9.
3 Now turn the control knob back to the gas
mark you want.
4 Wait until the burner is showing large
flames.
5 Close the oven door.
To turn off any burner
1 Push in the control knob and turn it to the off position. This is shown
by a large dot.
For your safety
When you are lighting any burner check that it has lit before you
leave the appliance.
When you are turning off a burner, do not leave the appliance until
the flame has gone out.

The grill
CSIG 404
The grill
The grill is a high-speed grill. The instructions below tell you how to vary
the heat setting and how to change the height of the grid to suit the food
you are cooking. You should remember to turn the food regularly.
You should not use the grill to keep food warm as it will continue to
cook the food.
Prior to using the grill
We suggest that you operate the grill for approximately 5 - 10 mins to
burn off any residue from the surface. During this period a slight odour
may be emitted, it is therefore advisable to open a window for
ventilation.
When you first operate the grill you may hear some sounds as the
burner heats up, this is quite normal and is not a fault on the appliance.
For your safety
The grill pan and handle must be in place before igniting the grill.
You must keep the grill door open when the grill burner is lit.
Accessible parts may be hot when the grill is used. Young
children should be kept away.
Never cover the grill pan or grid with foil as this can lead to grill
fires.
Heat control
The grill control has two heat settings.
The
control
knob
turns
anticlockwise from 'OFF' to 'HIGH'
and then to 'LOW'. Use the high
setting for fast cooking such as toast.
Use the low setting to cook thicker
food such as chicken after you have
browned it on the high setting.
6
Cooking positions
There is only one position for the grill
shelf (Position 2). Positions are counted
from the top downwards.
Most food should be cooked on the
grid in the grill pan. You can turn the grid
over to suit different thicknesses of food.
You can place some dishes straight
on to the grill shelf. This is useful when
you are browning the top of food such as
cauliflower cheese.
Preheating
You don't usually need to preheat the grill. You may wish to preheat it for
a couple of minutes when you are cooking steak or browning food.
Positioning food on the grid
Place food such as toast, tea-cakes and
muffins towards the centre of the grid.
Place food which needs a gentle heat,
such as tomatoes and mushrooms
towards the edge of the grid.
Arrange meat, meat products and fish
to suit their thickness and how you like
them cooked.

The grill pan and handle
The grill pan is supplied with a removable handle.
To attach the handle, place the wirework under the cut out in the pan so
that the metal plate hooks over the top of the grill pan.
Slide the handle to the left and over the central bump on the grill pan.
Ensure the handle is correctly located. It is not necessary to
remove the grill pan handle during grilling.
Place the grill pan on the shelf so that the pan is positioned centrally
beneath the grill.
To remove the handle, slide the handle to the right and lift the handle
away from the cut out on the grill pan.
Note
If you require an additional handle for your grill pan, this can be ordered
from your local Service Force Centre by quoting part number
311479800\6.
8
The hotplate
You can only use the hotplate when the lid is open. If you have any
trouble lighting a hotplate burner turn all hotplate control knobs off and
make sure the hotplate burner parts have been replaced correctly. See
page 21 for more information.
Heat control
The hotplate control knobs turn
anticlockwise from 'OFF' to 'HIGH'
and then to 'LOW'. You can adjust
the heat by turning the control
between the highest and lowest
settings. These are shown as a
large and a small flame symbol.
Burner sizes
The hotplate has three burner sizes
to suit different types of cooking:
Largest burner (Rapid) - use a large
pan for food such as chips.
Medium burners (Normal) - use for
everyday cooking.
Small burner (Simmer) - use for
simmering food such as soups and
stews.
The largest pan which you should use on any burner is 230mm (9").
The base of the smallest pan should not measure less than 100mm (4").

For your safety
1
Take care to avoid burns and scalds when you
are reaching across the hotplate.
Use pans with flat bases. They are more stable
than pans which are warped.
Do not use pans with very heavy handles which
cause the pan to tip.
Put pans on the centre of the burners.
Position pan handles so they cannot be
accidentally knocked.
Take extra care when you are deep fat frying. Do
not cover the pan with a lid.
Do not leave a pan unattended. If the pan
catches fire, leave it where it is and turn off all
controls.
Place a damp cloth or a fitting lid over the pan to
smother the flames.
Never put water on the fire.
Leave the pan to cool for 30 minutes.
7
If you are using a Wok we recommend it has a flat
base as it will stand stable on the pan supports. If
you use a round based Wok with a collar support,
the collar must be of the open wire work type. A
closed collar will affect the performance of the
burner. Before you use the Wok make sure that
the collar is stable on the pan supports. Always
follow the instructions that come with the Wok.
8
Do not use the lid as a work surface or chopping
board. This could damage the glass and reduce
its strength.
10
Helpful hints
1
Keep flames under the base of pans. If
the flames lick round the sides of the
pans you are wasting gas.
2
Only heat the amount of liquid you
need. Do not overfill pans.
3
Cover pans with a lid whenever
possible. The food will heat up more
quickly and there will be less steam in
the kitchen.
4
Try cooking more than one vegetable in
the same pan, for example potatoes
and carrots.
5
Cut vegetables into smaller pieces.
This way they will cook more quickly.
6
A pressure cooker will save time and
energy.

The oven
CS I G 4 0 4
The oven
Before you use the oven you should wipe it out with a damp cloth to
remove any dust.
Heat zones
There are zones of heat within the oven. The
temperature in the middle is the gas mark you
have chosen. The top of the oven is slightly
hotter and the lower shelf slightly cooler. The
base of the oven is quite a lot cooler. You can
make use of these heat zones when you are
cooking foods that need different
temperatures all at the same time.
If you are cooking more than one tray of similar items, for example
cakes or biscuits, swap the trays around during cooking. Or you can
remove the top tray when the food is cooked and move the lower tray to
the higher shelf to finish cooking.
Preheating
You do not need to preheat the oven for casseroling and so on.
Preheat the oven for baking or when you are cooking sensitive food
such as Yorkshire puddings, soufflés and yeast mixtures.
When you are cooking or reheating frozen or chilled food read the
instructions on the packaging. When you need to preheat the oven, we
recommend you do so for 20 minutes.
Oven shelves
You can slot the oven shelves into any of five
positions in the oven. Positions are counted
from the top downwards.
For safety the shelves will only pull out so far.
If you want to remove a shelf completely, pull
it forward as far as it will go, raise the front
edge and lift it out.
To put the shelf into a different position, keep the front edge raised, slot
the shelf on to the runner, lower the front edge and slide the shelf in.
12
Baking trays and dishes
For your safety
Never place cooking dishes, trays and so
on over the oven burners. This will
damage the appliance as well as the
cookware and possibly the floor covering
underneath the appliance.

For the best results from the oven we recommend that you use a baking
tray which is 310mm (12") square. If you use a tray or tin which is larger
than this, you may need to turn it around during cooking.
Place single dishes on the centre of the shelf. You may need to turn
large items around during cooking.
Roasting
For best results we recommend open roasting using minimal fat or oil to
prevent splashing.
It is not necessary to cover meat or poultry or wrap food in foil when
roasting as this restricts the circulation of heat and will lead to extended
cooktimes.
If you are using a roasting bag or cover chicken breast with foil, be
prepared to allow an extra 10 - 15 minutes for each 1/2kg (1lb).
When cooking large items such as turkeys, the use of foil may be
required to prevent the breast becoming dry before the rest of the bird is
fully cooked.

Condensation
Condensation may form on the appliance. This is quite normal and
nothing to worry about. The condensation forms when heat and
moisture are present, for example during cooking. Whenever possible
try to make sure that food which contains a lot of moisture, for example
casseroles, are covered. If you do notice any condensation, wipe it up
straight away.

Food
These instructions are for cooking in the oven after it has been pre-heated for 20 minutes.
If you are cooking more than one tray of similar items, for example cakes or biscuits, swap the trays around during cooking or you
can take the top tray out of the oven when the food is cooked and move the lower tray to the higher shelf to finish cooking.
Always leave at least one shelf position between shelves to allow heat to circulate.
The recommended shelf positions give the best results.
Put the dishes in the centre of the shelf.
You can change the gas marks and cooking times to suit your own tastes.
It is important to check that food is piping hot before serving.

Slow cooking
CSIG 404
Slow cooking
The slow cook setting gives a very low heat in the oven. It is particularly
useful when you are cooking soups, stews and casseroles because the
long slow cooking will make cheaper, tougher cuts of meat more tender.
You need to cook food at gas mark 6 for 30 minutes before you turn
the oven down to the slow cook setting. This makes sure that the
temperature of the food gets hot enough to start the food cooking.
Mark 6
Turn to S
Some foods such as pastry and biscuits are not suitable for slow
cooking because the temperature is too low.
Cover all food during cooking to prevent it from drying out. You can
uncover food for the last half hour if it is normally served golden brown.

General points for slow cooking
Frozen foods
Thaw thoroughly before cooking.
Thickening
Toss meat in flour for casseroles. Alternatively blend cornflour with
water and add at the end of cooking.
Flavouring
Flavours are retained because there is little evaporation. Adjust at the
end of the cooking time.
Liquid
Reduce normal liquid quantities slightly as there is little evaporation
during cooking time.
Milk and milk products, for example cream
Add these towards the end of cooking to prevent them from curdling.
Reheating
Left over food should be cooled quickly and refrigerated.
Do Not reheat food using the slow cook setting. Reheat food
conventionally or in a microwave. Food must only be reheated once.

Care and cleaning
For your safety
For hygiene and safety reasons you must keep this gas
appliance clean. A build up of fat or other foodstuff could cause
a fire.
Try to mop up spills and splashes as soon as they happen. But
be careful as parts of the appliance will be hot.
Do not use any polishes, caustic cleaners, abrasives, washing soda or
soap powder except those recommended in this booklet.
Please note: If we recommend you
use hot soapy water we mean hot
water with washing up liquid in it and
not any other cleaning product.
If you own a dishwasher please
read the operating instructions for the
machine before you wash any part of
your appliance in it.
Clean your appliance regularly using a cloth that has been wrung out
in hot soapy water. Rinse and polish it dry using a soft cloth. Stainless
Steel cream cleaners are abrasive and should be avoided as they
may damage the surface finish.
When you remove parts of your appliance for cleaning do not
plunge them into water whilst they are very hot as this may damage the
finish of the parts.
Cleaning the brass plated handles (Where
applicable)
It is strongly recommended that only hot soapy water is used for
cleaning the door handles. ANY OTHER CLEANING MATERIALS
WILL DULL THE BRASS PLATED FINISH.
The hotplate
Clean the hotplate top using a mild abrasive such as 'Cif'. Take care not
to damage the spark electrodes. If the spark electrodes are damaged
the burners will not light.
20
You can remove the pan supports, burner caps and burner crowns
to clean them. Again take care not to damage the spark electrodes.
If any food spills during cooking you can place the pan on another
burner to finish cooking. Then you can remove the dirty parts and clean
them before the spill 'burns on'.
Clean the burner crowns by soaking them in very hot soapy water. You
can remove any stubborn stains by scouring with a soap filled pad such
as 'Brillo'. If you look after the burner crowns in this way they will stay
reasonably clean. However the surface will dull with time.
Aluminium based saucepans can leave shiny metal marks on the
pan supports. Clean the pan supports regularly to remove the marks
using a mild abrasive like 'Cif' with a soft scourer. For more stubborn
marks you can use a soap-filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
After cleaning the appliance parts, dry
them thoroughly before you put them back.
When replacing hotplate burner parts
1. Crown to body (Do not try to force the
crown on to the body).
Make sure that the hole in the crown is
over the electrode. Check that the two
longer location pegs sit in the slots in the
body. When the crown is in this position
let it fall freely on to the body. Check that
the crown can be moved slightly from
side to side.
2. Cap to crown
Place cap centrally on the top of crown
(enamel side up). Move sideways and
front to back to check the cap is properly
fitted.
3. Check for ignition
If a burner will not light then you need to
check the crown and cap positions.

The grill and oven furniture
Clean the grill and oven furniture frequently using hot soapy water.
After use you can soak the grill pan for a few minutes and then clean
it using mild abrasives or a soap filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
Clean the shelf, grill pan grid and handle using hot soapy water. Mild
abrasives can be used if necessary.
The grill
Do not clean the grill burner itself.
The burner is designed to be self cleaning. Cleaning the grill may cause
the holes in the burner to become blocked preventing it from operating
correctly.
Please note that due to the nature of stainless steel the grill burner may
tarnish through use over a period of time. This is quite normal and is not
a fault on the appliance.
Clean the area around the grill frequently using hot soapy water.
After use you can soak the pan for a few minutes and then clean it using
mild abrasives or a soap filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
Clean the grill shelf using hot soapy water. Mild abrasives can be used
if necessary.
22
The oven
The sides and back of your oven are coated in a special material which
helps to keep itself clean.
Follow these simple rules to maintain the appearance of the special
finish.
Do not overfill dishes or they will boil over.
Do not put dishes too high in the oven. If
you do they may stick to the oven roof.
Cover your roasting tins with foil. This will
prevent fat splashing.
Use a roasting tin which is just large
enough for the meat and potatoes. This will
help to reduce fat splashing.
Dry any vegetables that you are going to
roast. If they are wet there will be more fat
splashing.

Oven cleaning cycle
You need to follow the cycle to keep the inside of the oven in good
condition. The type of cooking you do will affect how often you need to
follow the cycle.
If you do a lot of roasting and very little other baking you should
follow the cleaning cycle once a week. If you do very little roasting you
will only need to follow the cleaning cycle every 2-3 weeks.
To carry out a cleaning cycle:
1. Remove the oven shelves.
2. Set the oven to mark 5 for at
least 30 minutes.
MARK 5
3. Turn the temperature up to
mark 7 for 2 hours or until the
oven is presentably clean.
Some staining will remain.
MARK 7
Do not use any cleaning
agents or scrapers on the
inside of the oven. Do not
wash the special finish.
You can replace the oven roof if you need to. You may order this from
your supplier. When you are ordering quote part number 359001018.
General
Clean the base of the oven, the oven shelves and the oven doors while
they are still slightly warm. This way you can easily remove any
splashes or spills. Wipe the oven base with a cloth that has been wrung
out in hot soapy water. You may use mild abrasives.

Installing the appliance
For your safety
This appliance must be installed and serviced by a competent
person as stated in the Gas Safety (Installation & Use)
regulations current editions and the IEE Wiring Regulations.
It is important that the appliance is suitable for your gas
supply. Your installer should check the rating plate.
Make sure that a stability bracket is fitted.
Location
For your safety
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production
of heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed.
Ensure that the kitchen is well ventilated: keep natural
ventilation holes open or install a mechanical ventilation
device (mechanical extractor hood).
Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for
additional ventilation, for example opening of a window, or
more effective ventilation, for example increasing the level of
mechanical ventilation where present.
