How To Use Your Appliance
The position of the corresponding electric hot plate is indicated on each control knob.
Electric Hot Plates
The hot plates vary in diameter and power: "normal" and
"fast". The latter can be identified by a red boss in the center of the hot plate itself.
The hot plate can be regulated by tur ning the corresponding knob in the clockwise or counter-clockwise direction to any one of the 6 different settings:
The section entitled, "Practical Cooking Advise", provides information on the recommended settings for various types of food or cooking processes.
When the knob is on any of the settings other than "Off", the "C" operating light comes on.
How to Keep Your Cooktop in Shape
Before cleaning or performing maintenance on your appliance, disconnect it from the electrical power supply.
To extend the life of the cooktop, it is absolutely indispensable that it be cleaned carefully and thoroughly on a frequent basis, keeping in mind the following:
Do not use steam equipment to clean the appliance.
• The enamelled parts must be washed with warm water without using abrasive powders or corrosive substances which could ruin them;
• The electric hobs should be cleaned using a damp cloth and then rubbed with oil while still warm;
• Stainless steel can be stained if it remains in contact with highly calcareous water or aggressive detergents
(containing phosphorous) for an extended period of time. It is recommended that these parts be rinsed thoroughly with water and then dried well. It is also a good idea to clean up any spills;
Practical Cooking Advice
Practical Advice on Using the Electric Hot Plates
In order to avoid heat loss and damage to the hot plate, use cookware with a flat bottom the diameter of which is not less than that of the hot plate.
Before using the hot plates for the first time, you should heat them at maximum temperature for approximately 4 minutes, without any pans. During this initial stage, their protective coating hardens and reaches its maximum resistance.
Setting Normal or Fast Plate
Cooking vegetables, fish
Cooking potatoes (using steam) soups, chickpeas, beans.
Continuing the cooking of large quantities of food, minestrone
For roasting (average)
For roasting (above average)
For browning and reaching a boil in a short time.
Using the Cooktop
To get the best performance from your appliance, there are a few fundamental rules to follow during the cooking process or when preparing food.
• Use cookware with a flat bottom to ensure that the pot or pan is in direct contact with the cooking surface.
• Use cookware the diameter of which is at least as large as the cooking area so that all of the heat produced by the heating element is used.
• Make sure that the bottom of the pot is always dry and clean to insure good contact between the cookware and the cooking surface. This will also increase the life of the pots and of the ceramic glass surface as well.

Installation Instructions for built-in
The following instructions are intended for the installer so that the installation and maintenance procedures may be followed in the most professional and expert manner possible.
Important: Disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply before performing any maintenance or regulation upkeep work.
Installation of Built-in Cooktops
The appliance can be installed next to cabinets which are not higher than the cooktop itself. The following precautions must be observed for proper installation:
a) If the cabinet(s) located next to the cooktop are higher than the cooktop itself, the cabinet(s) must be installed at least 110 mm from the edge cooktop;
b) Hoods must be installed in accordance with the instructions contained in the installation manual for the hoods themselves, and no less than 650 mm from the cooktop;
c) The cabinets installed next to the hood must be located at a height of at least 420 mm from the top.
d) Should the cooktop be installed directly under a cupboard, the latter should be at least 700 mm
(millimetres) from the top, as shown in figure.

e) The dimensions of the cutout for the appliance must be those indicated in the figure. Clamps are provided to fasten the cooktop to counters measuring from 20 to 40 mm in thickness. To fasten the cooktop securely, it is recommended that all the clamps be used.
Clamp Position for
H=40mm top Back
N.B: Use the clamps contained in the "accessory kit."
f) In the event the cooktop is not installed above a builtin oven, a wood panel must be inserted as insulation.
This panel must be placed at least 20 mm from the bottom of the cooktop itself.
Important: When installing the cooktop above a built-in oven, the oven should be placed on two wooden strips; in the case of a joining cabinet surface, remember to leave a space of at least 45 x 560 mm at the back.
When installing the cooktop above a built-in oven without forced ventilation, ensure that there are air inlets and outlets for ventilating the interior of the cabinet adequately.
The electric cooktops are not fitted with a power supply cord because the type of cord used depends on the connection to the mains (see the wiring diagram below).
To connect the cable, proceed as follows:
Open the terminal box by removing the "V" screw and taking off the cover.

Fix the cable in place with the "F" cable clamp, close the lid and fasten it with the "V" screw.
Electrical Connection for Gas Cooktop
Fit the supply cord with a standard plug for the demand rate indicated on the rating plate or connect it directly to the electrical mains. In the latter case, a single pole switch must be placed between the appliance and the mains, with a minimum opening between the contacts of 3 mm in compliance with current safety codes (the earthing wire must not be interrupted by the switch). The power supply cord must be positioned so that it does not reach a temperature in excess of 50°C above room temperature at any point.
Before making the actual connection, make sure that:
• The fuse and electrical system can withstand the load required by the appliance;
• That the electrical supply system is equiped with an efficient earth hook-up according to the norms and regulations prescribed by law;
• That the plug or switch is easily accessible.
N.B: Never use adaptors, shunts or the like because they could overheat or cuase burns.
Attention: If the appliance is installed above a built-in oven, the electrical connection for the cooktop must be independent of that for the oven not only for safey reasons, but also to facilitate removable of the oven in the future.
