How to use the Hotplates
The hob is made of steel coated with a
vitreous enamel to provide a durable and
attractive surface. There are four solid
plates clamped to the surface of the hob.
All have a fixed stainless steel ring which
may turn yellow after the plate is first
used this is normal.
REMEMBER:
Solid plates maintain heat for up to five
minutes after switching off, so when boiling or frying, turn down the power setting
after reaching operating temperature.
BOILING AND SIMMERING:
ELECTRIC PLATES:
Boiling and simmering can be carried out
on any of the four plates.
The higher the number set on the control
knob, the higher the temperature that will
be maintained on the plate.
Each plate has seven working positions
marked on the control knob (Fig. 6):
- Position
0
- Positions
1-6

The rapid red dot plate will heat up faster

FRYING:
Generally frying is carried out on the larger plates. It is important not to leave
frying unattended even for a short while.
Do not use a chip-pan more than one
third full of fat or oil.
How to use the Hotplates
CHOICE OF PANS:
DONT’S:
It is uneconomical to use pans smaller
than the plate that has been selected.
The plate is made of cast-iron and is
heated uniformly over the whole surface,
therefore any part of the plate not covered by the pan is wasting energy.
Whilst almost any type of pan can be
used, those with curved or distorted
bases will waste energy.
We therefore recommend pans with flat
bases particularly those with machine
ground bases. Always dry the base of
the pan before placing on the plate.
Pans with a ridged or recessed base
must not be used.
Likewise do not use an asbestos or wire
mat or anything else under the pan.
Never leave a plate switched on for long
periods when not covered with a pan.

How to use the Oven and Grill
OVEN
Attention: The oven door becomes
very hot during operation.
Keep children away.
The oven has two heating elements, one
at the base of the oven, and one at the
top. Hot air rises, so the top of the oven
is always the hottest.
Always pre-heat a conventional oven
before use.
The oven indicator light will go out when
the required temperature is reached.
Do not open the oven door during
cooking unless absolutely necessary.
The temperature in the middle of the
oven is maintained at the temperature
set by the control knob, and is slightly
hotter above, slightly cooler below.

How to use the Oven and Grill
FUNCTION SELECTOR
(Fig. 8)
Cook or grill by turning the control knob
FUNCTION until the indicator on it is in
line with the symbol.
Conventional Oven - It is
advisable to preheat the oven
until the set temperature has
been reached ie: when the
indicator light above the
function selector goes off.
During cooking, do not open
the door unless it is absolutely
necessary.
Use in conjunction with the
temperature selector.
Always grill with the door
closed. Set the function
selector to the grill position and
the temperature selector to the
desired temperature.
The temperature can be varied
depending on the food being
cooked.
Before using the grill, pre-heat
for about five minutes. Position
the grill pan on the highest
shelf position and keep
checking as it could easily
burn.
To avoid possible smoking
during grilling it is advisable to
add a little water to the grill
pan.
The grill pan comes with a
detachable handle which
should always be used when
removing the grill pan from the
oven.
Note: It is recommended that you do not
grill for longer than 30 minutes at any
one time.
TEMPERATURE SELECTOR
(Fig. 9)
The light on the left of the control panel
will illuminate when the oven is switched
on and turns off when the oven reaches
the correct temperature.
The light will cycle on and off during
cooking in line with the oven
temperature.

Care and Maintenance
Always switch the cooker off at the
mains isolating switch before cleaning
or touching any electrical part.
THE HOB:
Spillage on the hob can usually be
removed by a damp soapy cloth. More
obstinate stains can be removed by
rubbing gently with a soapy scouring pad
or mild household cleaner.
Avoid scratching or scraping the surface.
Always wipe the plates after use with a
damp cloth and switch on momentarily to
dry the plate.
Occasionally wipe a trace of cooking oil
over the plate to maintain its
appearance.
THE OVEN:
The oven interior and the chromium
plated shelves and runners can be
cleaned by a damp soapy cloth.
Obstinate stains can be removed with
scouring pads and a gentle, nonabrasive, liquid cleaner.
Provided the oven is wiped over
immediately after roasting, only the
minimum of cleaning should be
necessary.
DOOR GLASS:
SPILLAGE:
Any spillage should be dealt with as
soon as possible to prevent it becoming
baked on.
REMOVING THE LID:
Simply open the lid so that it is in the
upright position. Lift upwards until the
hinges are clear of the hinge brackets.
Replace in reverse.
The glass of the oven door can be
cleaned with a soft, warm, soapy cloth,
then wiped clean with cold water and
polished with a soft clean cloth.
Do not use scouring pads or anything
abrasive on the oven door glass.
NOTE:
Any cleaners such as spray or stick
cleaners which are used on enamel must
have the VEDC (Vitreous Enamel
Development Council) seal of approval
and the manufacturers instructions must
be followed.
