Important safety instructions

Installation and connection

When using your appliance, follow basic safety precautions including the following:

Read all instructions before using for the first time.

Be certain your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician.

To guarantee the electrical safety of this appliance, continuity must exist between the appliance and an effective grounding system. It is imperative that this basic safety requirement be met. If there is any doubt, have the electrical system of the house checked by a qualified electrician. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for damages caused by the lack, or inadequacy of, an effective grounding system.

Do not connect the appliance to the main electrical supply using an extension cord. Extension cords do not meet the safety requirements of this appliance.

Before servicing, disconnect the power supply by either removing the fuse, unplugging the unit or manually "tripping" the circuit breaker.

Correct usage

Do not operate the appliance until properly installed in the countertop.

This appliance is intended for residential use only.

Use the appliance only for its intended purpose. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for damages caused by improper use of the grill.

Never use the appliance to warm or heat the room.

The water trough must be full when using the appliance. To avoid spills do not fill above the indication mark.

Do not switch on the appliance when the heating element is raised.

This appliance must not be set up or operated outdoors.

Important safety instructions

Protection from damage

Do not use any type of aluminium products including pots, pans, and foil on the grill. Aluminium will cause overheating and may damage the grill grate.

Do not drop anything on the ceramic surface. Even a light object could cause damage in certain circumstances.

Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the appliance. Steam could penetrate electrical components and cause a short circuit.

In areas subject to infestation by cockroaches or other vermin, keep the appliance and its surroundings clean at all times. Any damage caused by pests will not be covered under warranty.

4

Important safety instructions

Protection from burns

The appliance becomes very hot when in use. Make sure that no one comes in contact with it. The heating element and grate may be hot even though they are dark in color.

Do not store toys or items of interest to children in cabinets above or behind the appliance. Children climbing onto the grill to reach these items may become seriously injured.

Do not allow children to operate or play with, or near, the grill.

Use only dry, heat resistant potholders. Moist or damp potholders used on hot surfaces can result in steam burns. Do not let the potholder touch the hot heating element. Do not use towels or other bulky items near the appliance.

Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while cooking.

Do not heat unopened food containers. Build-up pressure may cause the container to burst and result in injury.

Do not store items on the grill when not in use.

Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate on the appliance.

Do not leave the appliance unattended while in use. Overheated food can ignite.

Extinguish flames immediately.

Replace the lava rocks regularly.

Rocks saturated with oil or fat catch fire easily. The grill trough and the lava rock container should be cleaned after each use to keep them free of oil and fat.

Never put water or ice on to a hot grill. This can cause a serious reaction leading to injury.

Do not use water on grease fires.

Smother any fire or flame, or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

Before using for the first time

Cleaning and heating for the first time

Before using for the first time clean the water trough and the grate with a solution of hot water and liquid dish soap.

Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth (see

"Cleaning and Care").

Clean all other surfaces with a damp cloth only, and then wipe dry.

Metal components have a protective coating which may give off a slight odor the first time your new appliance is heated.

The odor and any vapors will dissipate after a short time and do not indicate a faulty connection or appliance defect.

Using the barbecue

Before grilling

The grill can be used with or without lava rocks. When cooking without lava rocks, rising steam will keep the food moist. When using lava rocks, cooking results will be similar to barbecuing.

Preparing the grill:

^ Remove the grate, raise the heating element, and remove the lava rock container.

^ Fill the trough with water:

– up to line a, (about 2 quarts [2.5 l ]) when grilling

without lava rocks

, or

– up to line b, (about 1 quart [1.2 l ]) when grilling

with lava rocks

.

^ Reseat the lava rock container, if so desired.

^ Lower the heating element and replace the grate.

^ The grill can now be turned on.

While grilling, watch the level of water in the trough. If necessary, add more water.

Do not use aluminium dishes, pans, pots or foil on the grill. Never cover the grill grate with aluminium foil.

Aluminium will cause overheating and may damage the grill grate.

10

Using the barbecue

Turning on and off

The grill can be turned on or off by turning the control knob either clockwise or counterclockwise.

Safety cut-out feature

A safety cut-out switch prevents the heating element from turning on when it is raised.

Using the barbecue

Grilling

^ Preheat the grill by setting it to "12" and allowing it to run for approximately 5 minutes.

^ Grill meat for a few minutes at the highest setting to sear the outside and seal in the juices.

^ After searing, set the control knob to

"9" or "10" to finish cooking the meat.

^ Turn the food frequently to prevent burning.

Tips on grilling

– To minimize splattering, dry moist foods with paper towels before grilling.

– Salt meat after grilling to prevent it from drying out.

– Marinating meats or fish before grilling will often enhance their flavor.

– To help prevent the food from sticking to the grate, brush un-marinated meats with a little oil before grilling.

Cleaning and care

Under no circumstances use a steam cleaner to clean this appliance. Pressurized steam could cause permanent damage to the surface and to components for which the manufacturer cannot accept responsibility.

Never use strong cleaners e.g. oven sprays, stain or rust removers.

Scouring pads and abrasive cleaning agents should only be used on the heating element.

Do not use any sharp pointed objects which could damage the seal between the ceramic surface and the surrounding frame and between the frame and the countertop.

When using cleaning agents for stainless steel you must follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the packaging.

After cleaning use a soft, dry cloth to remove any moisture. This way you will prevent the build up of limescale deposits.

Control panel

Ceramic surfaces can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Wipe dry using a soft cloth.

,

Do not use too much water when cleaning the controls. Water could penetrate into the electronics and cause damage.

Stainless steel

Clean stainless steel surfaces with warm water and liquid dish soap applied with a non-abrasive sponge and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. Soak baked or hardened spills first to loosen them.

Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned using a non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner.

To help prevent resoiling, a conditioner for stainless steel can also be used.

Apply sparingly with even pressure.

Do not use stainless steel conditioner on the lava rock container.

Grate, Lava rock container, heating element

Allow the appliance to cool down.

Clean the rack and the lava rock container after each use with a solution of liquid dish soap and warm water. Allow to dry thoroughly.

Soak to loosen any burnt-on food which can then be removed with a brush.

Use a gentle scourer on any residue left on the grill element.

14

Cleaning and care

Water trough

^ Let the water cool to a safe temperature to prevent burns.

^ Place a container of a suitable size (a metal pot for example) under the drain valve. Slowly open the drain valve, f, by turning it counterclockwise, a.

^ Close the valve after all the water has drained by turning the valve clockwise, b, until the valve can turn no further (do not over-tighten or jam the valve).

^ Remove or wipe clean any residues remaining in the reservoir. The heating element can be raised to make this easier.

^ Fill the water trough with a mild solution of liquid dish soap and warm water, and rinse it out thoroughly.

^ Drain off the solution, rinse with clean warm water and dry.

Do not use stainless steel conditioner on the water trough.

Make sure that the underside of the grill is left accessible for draining the water. Wait until the water has cooled down before draining to prevent scalds.
