How To Use the Hob Burners
Hob burners
Each hob burner is controlled by a separate gas tap operated by a control knob
(fig. 4.3) which has 3 positions marked
on the control panel, these are:
– Symbol
● : tap closed (burner off)
– Symbol
: High (maximum)
– Symbol
: Low (minimum)
Fig. 4.3
- The maximum setting permits rapid boiling of liquids, whereas the minimum setting
allows slower warming of food or maintaining simmering conditions of liquids.
- To reduce the gas flow to minimum, rotate the knob anti-clockwise to point the indicator towards the small flame symbol.
- Other intermediate operating can be achieved by positioning the control knob indicator between the maximum and minimum setting, but not between the maximum
and off positions.
N.B. When the cooker is not being used, set the gas knobs to their closed positions and also close the cock valve on the gas bottle or the main gas supply line.
Lighting of the hob burners
To ignite the burner, the following instructions are to be followed:
1) Press in the corresponding knob and turn counter-clockwise to the full flame position
marked by the
symbol (fig. 4.3) and hold the knob in until the flame has been lit.
In the case of a mains failure light the burner with a match or lighted taper.
2) Wait for about ten seconds after the gas burner has been lit before letting go of the
knob (valve activation delay).
3) Adjust the gas valve to the desired position.
Important:
If the burner flame should go out for some reason, the safety valve will automatically
stop the gas flow.
To re-light the burner, return the knob to the closed “●” position, wait for at least 1
minute and then repeat the lighting procedure.
If your local gas supply makes it difficult to light the burner with the knob set to maximum, set the knob to minimum and repeat the operation.

do not use pans with concave or convex bases
Saucepans with handles which are excessively heavy, in relationship to the weight of
the pan, are safer as they are less likely to tip.
Pans which are positioned centrally on burners are more stable than those which are
offset.
It is far safer to position the pan handles in such a way that they cannot be accidentally knocked.
When deep fat frying fill the pan only one third full of oil.
DO NOT cover the pan with a lid and DO NOT leave the pan unattended.
In the infortunate event of a fire, leave the pan where it is and turn off all controls.
Place a damp cloth or correct fitting lid over the pan to smother the flames.
DO NOT use water on the fire.
Leave the pan to cool for at least 30 minutes.

General features
With your new Fan oven it is possible
to cook a variety of food using the 2
different cooking functions.
The 2 positions, thermostatically controlled, are obtained by 2 heating elements.
– Grill element
2000 W
– Circular element
2200 W
Note:
Upon first use, it is advisable to operate the oven at the maximum temperature (thermostat knob on position 250)
for 60 minutes in the position
and
for another 15 minutes in the
mode
in order to eliminate any traces of
grease from the electrical resistances.
Operating principles
Heating and cooking in the FAN oven
are obtained in the following ways:
a. by forced convection
A fan sucks in the air contained in the
oven muffle, which sends it through
the circular heating element and then
sends it back through the muffle.
Before the hot air is sucked back
again by the fan to repeat the
described cycle, it envelops the food
in the oven, provoking a complete
and rapid cooking.
It is possible to cook several dishes
simultaneously.
b. by radiation
The heat is radiated by the infra red
grill element.
c. by ventilation
The food is defrosted by using the
fan only function without heat.
WARNING:
The door is hot, use the handle.
During use the appliance becomes
hot. Care should be taken to avoid
touching heating elements inside the
oven.
25
Fig. 6.1
Fig. 6.2
Thermostat knob (fig. 6.1)
This only sets the cooking temperature and does not switch the oven on. Rotate clockwise until the required temperature is reached (from 50 to 250°C).
The oven thermostat indicator light 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.
Function selector knob (fig. 6.2)
Rotate the knob clockwise to set the oven for one of the following functions:
Oven light
By setting the knob to this position, only the oven light comes on.
It remains on in all the cooking modes.
26
Defrosting frozen foods
Only the oven fan is on.
To be used with the thermostat knob on “●” because the other positions have no effect.
The defrosting is done by simple ventilation without heat.
Recommended for:
To rapidly defrost frozen foods; 1 kilogram requires about one hour.
The defrosting times vary according to the quantity and type of foods to be defrosted.
Hot air cooking
The circular element and the fan are on.
The heat is diffused by forced convection and the temperature must be regulated
between 50° and 250 °C with the thermostat knob.
It is not necessary to preheat the oven.
Recommended for:
For foods that must be well done on the outside and tender or rare on the inside, i.
e. lasagna, lamb, roast beef, whole fish, etc.
Grilling
The infrared grill element comes on. The heat is dispersed by radiation.
Set the thermostat knob to between 50° and 200°C.
Always grill with the oven door closed.
For cooking hints, see the chapter “USE OF THE GRILL”.
Recommended for:
Intense grilling, browning, cooking au gratin and toasting etc.
Do not grill for longer than 30 minutes at any one time on full heat (200°C).
Caution: the oven door becomes very hot during operation.
Keep children well out of reach.
27
Cooking Advice
Sterilization
Sterilization of foods to be conserved, in full and hermetically sealed jars, is done in
the following way:
a. Set the switch to position
.
b. Set the thermostat knob to position 185 °C and preheat the oven.
c. Fill the dripping pan with hot water.
d. Set the jars onto the dripping pan making sure they do not touch each other and
the door and set the thermostat knob to position 135 °C.
When sterilization has begun, that is, when the contents of the jars start to bubble,
turn off the oven and let cool.
Regeneration
Set the switch to position
and the thermostat knob to position 150° C.
Bread becomes fragrant again if wet with a few drops of water and put into the oven
for about 10 minutes at the highest temperature.
Roasting
To obtain classical roasting, it is necessary to remember:
– that it is advisable to maintain a temperature between 180 and 200 °C.
– that the cooking time depends on the quantity and the type of foods.
28
Simultaneous cooking of different foods
The
consents a simultaneous heterogeneous cooking of different foods. Different
foods such as fish, cake and meat can be cooked together without mixing the smells
and flavours together. This is possible since the fats and vapours are oxidized while
passing through the electrical element and therefore are not deposited onto the foods.
The only precaution to follow are:
– The cooking temperatures of the different foods must be as close to as possible,
with a maximum difference of 20° - 25 °C.
– The introduction of the different dishes in the oven must be done at different times
in relation to the cooking times of each one.
The time and energy saved with this type of cooking is obvious.
Use of the grill
Preheat the oven for about 5 minutes.
Introduce the food to be cooked, positioning the rack as close to the grill as possible.
The drip pan should be placed under the rack to catch the cooking juices and fats.
Grilling with the oven door closed.
Do not grill for longer than 30 minutes at any one time on full heat (200°C).
Caution: the oven door becomes very hot during operation.
Keep children well out of reach.
Oven cooking
Before introducing the food, preheat the oven to the desired temperature.
For a correct preheating operation, it is advisable to remove the tray from the oven
and introduce it together with the food, when the oven has reached the desired temperature.
Check the cooking time and turn off the oven 5 minutes before the theoretical time to
recuperate the stored heat.
