THE GAS BURNER
THE ULTRA-RAPID BURNER or "4 RINGS" BURNER, power rating 3,5 kW :
use this burner for bringing to boil, for cooking large quantities, and generally for all foods
requiring rapid cooking.
THE FAST BURNER, power rating 2,5 kW :
use the large burner for all foods requiring rapid cooking.
THE SEMI-FAST BURNER, power rating 1,75 kW or THE AUXILIARY BURNER, power
rating 1kW :
it is ideal for stewing, sauces and slow cooking.
The pan supports fitted on the 1,75 kW burners are working as Mijorose when the burner
is set on low rate.
On the slow setting, the flame only comes into contact with the cast iron burner cap. This
is ideal for slow cooking, as the heat is evenly distributed under the pan and food doesn't
dry out or stick to the bottom of the pan.
On the high position, the flames heat directly the pan allowing all cookings on quick gas.
For a proper use of the burners, choose pans which match the dimensions given below :
* Ultra-rapid or "4 Rings"
Ø 18 cm and more
* Rapid
Ø 16 to 18 cm
* Semi-fast
Ø 12 cm
* Auxiliary
Ø 10 cm
SOME TIPS ....
• Pans with curved, ridged or warped bottoms are not recommended.
• Centre the pan on the "pan support".
• Do not place the same pan on two burners.
• Avoid boiling food too intensely. Food is not cooked any more quickly this way. In fact,
it is subjected to severe agitation, which may cause the food to lose some of its flavour.
• To save gas, make sure that the flames do not overlap the bottom of the pan.
• Do not use the gas burner with an empty pan.
WARNING :
. when the burners are not in service, the general gas supply tap should always be
turned off.
. the use of a steak-grid is forbidden. The high temperatures reached on the hob
surface will give to the glass a thermic shock which will lead to an irreversible
brittleness.
10
Each burner is fitted with automatic ignition. The ignition can be made with one hand,
while you have the pan in the other hand.
USE :
• Turn on the gas tap,
• A symbol next to each control knob
indicates which burner is lit.
(example: front left burner)
• Hob with automatic ignition integrated :
• Press and turn the knob to position "" keeping it pressed to produce sparks
which in turn ignite the burner.
• Hob with safety device on the burner and automatic ignition integrated :
The thermocouple fast safety is a device allowing the automatic cut-out of the gas
supplying on the burner, in case the flame dies out accidentally.
• Press and turn the knob to position "high flame" keeping it pressed to
produce sparks which in turn ignite the burner.
Keep the pressure on the control knob a few seconds to permit the releasing of
the safety device.
• Set the flame according to your cooking requirements.
Intermediate positions are available between the settings on the control knob.
• To turn the flame out, turn the control knob back to stop position.
Please note :
. If there is a power cut, the burner can be ignited by pressing in and turning the knob to
position "high flame" and holding a naked flame to the burner.
Caution:
the heating surface clearly get hot while operating, so make sure that small children are
kept well away from the hob.
11
THE HOT PLATE
THE SPEED PROTECTED HOT PLATE - 1500 W.
This is a cast-iron hot plate, controlled by a 7 position switch.
An internal thermostat cuts off part of the power supply if overheating occurs. (if, for
example, a hot plate is working without a pan on it).
BEFORE USING THE ELECTRICAL HOT PLATE :
• Before using the electric hot plate for the first time, let it heat up for a few minutes,
without a pan, at maximum temperature to allow the protective coating to harden.
HOW TO USE :
• For best results, it is advisable to start on the maximum heat and
then turn back to an intermediate temperature taking into account
the type and volume of the food.
• An indicator light comes on to show that the hot plate is operating.
• To switch off, turn the knob back to point "O".
DIFFERENT TEMPERATURE SETTINGS :
Below are a few examples which are given as guidelines. When you become more
familiar with the appliance, you will be able to choose settings to suit your own
personal tastes and requirements.

Cooking with the electrical hot plate
To get the best results from your appliance it is important to observe the following :
• Use thick, flat-based cooking vessel :
a completely flat base prevents overheating to certain parts which causes food to stick.
Thick metal allows for good heat distribution.
• Make sure that the base of the pan is dry :
this will prevent sticking to the hot plate caused by moisture.
• Use pans with a diameter large enough to completely cover the hot plate, otherwise energy
will be wasted and any spillages will cause the hot plate to become stained and will become
difficult to maintain (rust, etc.).
• Never leave a hot plate switched on without a pan on it : it can be damaged, which would
reduce its efficiency.
• When cooking with fat or oil, never leave the hob unattented, very hot fats and oils can
quickly catch fire.
• When the hot plate is hot, avoid any contact with materials made of plastic or aluminium
foil.
Caution :
the heating surfaces clearly get hot while operating, so make sure that small children
are kept well away from the hob.
CLEANING THE HOT PLATE
To burn off any cooking deposits heat the hob for a short time. After switching off and
the hot plate has cooled down, wipe it with absorbent paper. It is important that the hot plate
is protected from moisture.
Do not use abrasive products.
To maintain and preserve its appearance, rub a drop of neutral oil, such as sewing machine
oil into the surface of the hot plate.
The hot plate should always be dry, or slightly greasy. If it is not to be used for some time,
remove any rust using emery paper followed by a suitable commercially available product
for the maintenance of soil hotplates.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Before cleaning or removing the hob, it is imperative to :
• disconnect the hob from the mains supply,
• let all parts of the hob cool down.
Never use harsh abrasives, scouring pads or sharp objects to clean the hob.
Do not use a sponge that it is excessively wet.
It is advisable to keep away from the hob all substances which are liable to melt, such as
plastic items, sugar, or sugar-based products.
MAINTENANCE OF THE GLASS HOB
. Place a few drops of the specialised cleaning products on the hob surface.
. Rub any stubborn stains with a soft cloth or with slightly damp kitchen paper.
. Wipe with a soft cloth or dry kitchen paper until the surface is clean.
If there are still some stubborn stains :
. place a few more drops of specialised cleaning fluid on
the surface,
. scrape with a scraper, holding it at an angle of 30° to
the hob, until the stains disappear.
. wipe with a soft cloth or dry kitchen paper
until the surface is clean.
. repeat the operation if necessary.
Scraper
Racloir
30˚
maxi
A scraper with a razor blade will not damage the surface, as long as it is kept at an angle
of 30°. Never leave a scraper with a razor blade within the reach of children.
A FEW HINTS :
Frequent cleaning leaves a protective layer which is essential to prevent scratches and
wear.
Make sure that the surface is clean before using the hob again.
To remove marks left by water, use a few drops of white vinegar or lemon juice. Then
wipe with absorbent paper and a few drops of specialised cleaning fluid.
MAINTENANCE OF THE HOB
. Enamelled steel hob : when the hob has cooled completely, simply clean the enamelled
hob with soapy water, rinse and wipe with a clean dry cloth. If you clean the enamelled
hob when it is hot, you may tarnish it.
. Stainless steel : clean with soapy water, rinse and dry. You can use a special product
to clean stainless steel which is available from various retail outlets. Place a few drops of
the specialised cleaning products on the hob surface.

THE GAS BURNERS
Burner cap
Burner head
Pan support
• Burner caps and pan supports : the pan support is made of enamelled cast-iron and the
burner cap is made of enamelled steel, for a maximal protection and an easy cleaning.
They are simply placed. Just lift them off and clean with a damp, slightly soapy sponge.
Do not immerse them in cold water immediately after use to avoid cracking the enamel
from the thermal shock.
The use of abrasive cleansers is not recommended as they scratch and dull the enamel.
• The burner head : the burner cap is simply placed on the burner head. If the holes are
clogged, brush the caps using soapy water and dry with a clean cloth.
Each burner is simply layed on a flange slightly bossed to drain the overflows far from the
flame and the hot areas which make cleaning easier.
• After cleaning of each element, it is important to wipe them correctly and care of fitting
them rightly in their initial position. The re-fitting must be perfect because a bad positioning
can bring serious anomalies in the combustion.
Warning : be careful, not to let any water get into the burners.
THE KNOBS
• For thorough cleaning, the control knobs can be removed by pulling them upwards.
Only clean with soapy water and dry well before replacing them.
• Do not try to pull the watertightness rings. They are originally fitted and must not be
pulled out.
