Your new cooker is guaranteed and will give lasting service. The guarantee is only applicable if the cooker has been installed in accordance with the Installation Instructions. The cooker is designed specifically for domestic use and responsibility will not be accepted for use in any other installation. When first using the cooker ensure that the room is well ventilated (e.g. open a window or use an extractor fan) and that persons who may be sensitive to the odour avoid any fumes. It is suggested that any pets be removed from the room until the smell has ceased. This odour is due to any temporary finish and also any moisture absorbed by the insulation. Our policy is one of continual improvement in design and development, therefore strict accuracy of illustrations and descriptions cannot be guaranteed. This appliance conforms to the following EEC Directive: Gas Appliances 90/396/EEC Low Voltage Equipment 73/23/EEC 93/68/EEC Electromagnetic Compatibility 89/336/EEC 92/31/EEC 93/68/EEC 3 FOR YOUR SAFETY Please read the precautions below before using your cooker. ALWAYS make sure you understand the controls before using the cooker. ALWAYS check that all controls on the cooker are turned off after use. ALWAYS stand back when opening an oven door to allow heat to disperse. ALWAYS use dry, good quality oven gloves when removing items from the ovens. ALWAYS take care when removing items from the top oven/grill when the main oven is on, as the contents may be hot. ALWAYS keep the oven and grill doors closed when the cooker is not in use. ALWAYS place pans centrally over the hotplate burners and position them so that the handles cannot accidentally be caught or knocked or become heated by other burners. ALWAYS keep the cooker clean, as a build up of grease or fat from cooking can cause a fire. ALWAYS allow the cooker to cool before cleaning. ALWAYS follow the basic principles of food handling and hygiene to prevent the possibility of bacterial growth. ALWAYS keep ventilation slots clear of obstructions. ALWAYS turn off the electricity supply before cleaning or replacing the oven lamp. ALWAYS refer servicing to CORGI registered appliance service engineers. 4 FOR YOUR SAFETY NEVER leave children unsupervised where the cooker is installed as all surfaces will get hot during and after use. NEVER allow anyone to sit or stand on any part of the cooker. NEVER store items that children may attempt to reach above the cooker. NEVER heat up unopened food containers as pressure can build up causing the container to burst. NEVER store chemicals, food stuffs, pressurised containers in or on the cooker, or in cabinet immediately above or next to the cooker. NEVER fill a deep fat frying pan more than 1/3 full of oil, and never use a lid. DO NOT LEAVE UNATTENDED WHILE COOKING. NEVER place flammable or plastic items on or near the hotplate. NEVER use proprietary spillage collectors on the hotplate. NEVER use the cooker as a room heater. NEVER dry clothes or place other items over or near to the hotplate or oven/grill doors. NEVER wear garments with long flowing sleeves whilst cooking. NOTE: The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed. Always ensure that the kitchen is well ventilated; keep natural ventilation holes open or install a mechanical ventilation device (mechanical extractor hood). In particular when using the grill or more than one hotplate burner, open a window if a mechanical ventilation device is not operating. 5 AUTOMATIC COOKING AUTOMATIC COOKING Only the main oven can be controlled automatically. GUIDANCE ON AUTOMATIC COOKING 1. When planning your meal remember that the oven control setting refers to the temperature on the middle shelf; above this shelf it is hotter and below it is cooler. Therefore foods which require different temperatures can be cooked automatically at the same time. 2. Set the oven timer so that the food has just finished or about to finish cooking on your return to the oven. This will ensure the food has not cooled down and does not require reheating before serving. 3. Food should be as cold as possible when it goes into the oven ideally straight from the refrigerator. Frozen meat and poultry should be thawed thoroughly before it is put in the oven. 4. We advise that warm food should never be placed in the oven if there is to be a delay period. Stews prepared by frying the meat and vegetables should be cooked as soon as possible. 5. We advise dishes containing left-over cooked poultry or meat, for example Shepherds Pie, should not be cooked automatically if there is to be a delay period. 6. Stews and joints should be cooked by the long slow method, so that the delay period is kept to a minimum. 7. On warm days, to prevent harmful bacterial growth in certain foods (ie poultry, joints, etc) the delayed start should be kept to a minimum. 8. Wine or beer may ferment and cream may curdle during the delay period, so it is best to add these ingredients just before serving. 9. Foods which discolour should be protected by coating in fat or tossing in water to which lemon juice has been added, prior to placing food in the oven. 10. Dishes containing liquid should not be filled too full to prevent boiling over. 11. Foods should be well sealed (but not airtight) in a container to prevent the loss of liquid during cooking. Aluminium foil gives a good seal. 12. Ensure food is cooked thoroughly before serving. 6 TIMER OPERATION CLOCKFACE The timer incorporates a 24 hour clock.

Do not use the safety device as a means of controlling the hotplate burners. The hotplate has two high speed burners and two simmering burners which will accommodate pans between 100mm (4”) and 230mm (9”) diameter. All pans should be positioned centrally over the burners. TO USE THE HOTPLATE 1. Remove any items or spillage from the top of the lid and then raise it to its fully open position. 2. Press the ignition button and then push in and turn the control knob of the chosen burner anti-clockwise to the large flame symbol. Continue to press the ignition button until the sparks light the gas. 3. Turn the control knob anti-clockwise to the desired setting. Only turn the control knob between the large flame symbol and the small flame symbol for adjusting the setting. 4. To turn off, turn the control knob fully clockwise to the symbol O. DO NOT use the hotplate unless all pan supports are in position. DO NOT use mis-shapen pans which may be unstable. DO NOT use round base woks directly on the pan supports. DO NOT use the glass lid as a working surface. Each burner is fitted with a spark ignitor for lighting the gas. To ensure rapid lighting of the burners every time they are used, the ignitors must be kept clean and dry. Remove any food spillage or cleaning materials from the ignitor using a small nylon brush such as a tooth brush. Access to the ignitor can be achieved by lifting off the loose burner parts carefully when the burners are cool. When the hotplate burner bodies and caps are removed for cleaning, be careful not to drop any food particles or cleaning materials into the burner bases, to avoid the possibility of blocking the gas jets. If aluminium based pans are used, a silvery deposit may appear on the top edge of the pan support fingers. See ‘Care and Cleaning’ section for cleaning information. When the hotplate burners are turned down, a slight ‘popping’ noise may be heard. This is perfectly normal. 13 HOTPLATE SAFETY REQUIREMENTS FOR DEEP FAT FRYING 1. Never fill chip pans more than one third full with oil or fat. 2. Never leave oil or fat unattended during the heating or cooling period. 3. Never heat fat or fry with a lid on the pan. 4. Always dry food thoroughly before frying, and lower it slowly into the hot oil or fat. Frozen foods in particular will cause frothing and spitting if added too quickly. 5. Always keep the outside of the pan clean and free from streaks of oil or fat. HOW TO DEAL WITH A FAT FIRE 1. Do not move the pan. 2. Turn off the hotplate burners. 3. Smother the flames with a fire blanket or damp cloth to extinguish the fire. Do not use water or a fire extinguisher as the force of it may spread the burning fat or oil over the edge of the pan. 4. Leave the pan for at least 60 minutes before moving it. 14 TOP OVEN The top oven can be used to cook small quantities of food or used in conjunction with the main oven to provide additional cooking space. The shelf in the top oven has a heat shield fitted at the rear. The shield can be removed for cleaning and grilling, but must be replaced when using the oven. The shelf can be used in three different positions. It has a safety stop to prevent it from being pulled out too far when attending to food. The shelf is removed from the oven by pulling it out to the stop and then lifting at the front to withdraw. The baking dish and grill pan without the handle can be used in the oven. The maximum size of baking tray that should be used is 300mm x 350mm (12” x 14”). TO USE THE TOP OVEN 1. Check that the heat shield is fitted to the shelf. 2. Place the top oven shelf in the chosen position. (refer to cooking chart). 3. Push in and turn the top oven/grill control knob fully anti-clockwise. Sparking will continue until the burner has lit. 4. Turn the control knob clockwise to the required setting. (refer to cooking chart). 5. There is a delay of about one minute whilst the safety device operates before the burner comes on full. 6. To turn off, turn the control knob clockwise to the symbol O. NOTE: It is normal for a slight resistance to be felt when turning the control knob to the oven settings. GUIDANCE ON USING THE TOP OVEN 1. Best results are obtained by pre-heating the oven for about 15 minutes. 2. The tray or dish on which the food is to be cooked, should be pushed to the back of the shelf. 3. Food which is higher than or will rise above 125mm (5”) cannot be cooked in the top oven. Never place dishes on the oven base over the burner. An odour may be noticed when first using the oven – this should cease after a short period of use. 15 TOP OVEN COOKING CHART The following times and setting are for guidance only.

The grill cannot be used at the same time as the top oven. An odour may be noticed when first using the grill – this should cease after a short period of use. DO NOT DO NOT use the grill with the door closed. cover the grill pan or grid with aluminium foil as this can hold fat, intensify the heat and create a fire hazard. RELIGHTING THE BURNER In the event of the burner flames being accidentally extinguished, turn off the burner control and do not attempt to re-ignite the burner for at least one minute. 18 GRILL The following chart is a guide. Grilling can be started from cold but for best results preheat for approximately two minutes. Most cooking is done with the heat on full, but it may be desirable to reduce it for thicker pieces of meat or for keeping food warm. Shelf Position Food HIGH POSITION Toast, pikelets/crumpets, bacon, thin sausages, beefburgers, tomato halves, steak (rare and medium), kippers, gammon, kidneys and toasted snacks. CENTRE POSITION Toast, toasted snacks, thick sausages, beefburgers, fish fingers, steak (well done) and gammon, chops (with heat turned down for part of cooking time). LOW POSITION Whole fish, fish fillets and fish steaks (on base of pan). Chicken portions (with heat turned down for part of cooking time). For au gratin dishes eg. Macaroni Cheese and meringue toppings eg. Baked Alaska, place the dish on the floor of the grill compartment. The base of the grill pan can be used for warming fruit garnishes on the reduced setting. REMOVE HEAT SHIELD FROM SHELF WHEN GRILLING FOR MAXIMUM GRILLING AREA. NOTE: Strong detergents used in dishwashers may damage the grill pan grid finish; clean in soapy water as described in CARE AND CLEANING section. Always ensure that the grill pan handle is correctly fitted to the grill pan. If necessary tighten any loose screws with a screwdriver. 19 MAIN OVEN The oven has different heat zones – the thermostat settings refer to the temperature on the middle shelf position; above this shelf it is hotter and below it is cooler. Two shelves provide five possible cooking levels enabling full use of the different temperatures inside the oven. Each shelf has a safety stop to prevent if from being pulled out too far when attending to food. Shelves are removed from the oven by pulling them out to the stop and then lifting them at the front to withdraw. The baking dish and grill pan without the handle can be used in the oven. The maximum size of baking tray that should be used is 300mm x 350mm (12” x 14”). TO USE THE MAIN OVEN 1. Check that the electricity supply is switched on and the timer is set to manual mode. 2. Place oven shelves in the chosen positions (refer to cooking charts). 3. Push in and turn the oven control knob fully anti-clockwise. Sparking will continue until the burner is lit. 4. Turn the control knob clockwise to the required setting (refer to cooking chart). There is a delay of about one minute whilst the safety device operates before the burner comes on full. 5. To turn off, turn the control knob fully clockwise the the symbol O. Never place dishes on the oven base over the burner. An odour may be noticed when first using the oven – this should cease after a short period of use. 20 MAIN OVEN COLD START COOKING Anything requiring long slow cooking such as casseroles and rich fruit cakes can be put into a cold oven. Satisfactory results can also be obtained with creamed mixture, rich pastries or yeast mixtures, but for perfection we recommend preheating the oven for about 15 minutes at the gas mark you require for cooking. ROASTING OF LARGE POULTRY The maximum weight of poultry that can be accommodated is 11.5kg (25 lbs) of suitable shape. It is important to check that the bird DOES NOT overhang the burner at the back of the oven. STORAGE AND RE-HEATING OF FOOD It is vitally important to strictly adhere to the basic principles of food handling and hygiene to prevent the possibility of bacterial growth. 1. If food is to be frozen or not served immediately, cool it in a clean container as quickly as possible. 2. Completely thaw frozen food in the refrigerator before re-heating. 3. Re-heat food thoroughly and quickly either on the hotplate or in a hot oven, Mk. 6, and then serve immediately. 4. Only re-heat food once. ‘COOK CHILL’ DISHES These should always be placed in a pre-heated oven ideally on the first or second shelf position. Follow the packet instructions for cooking time. ALUMINIUM FOIL If using Aluminium Foil: 1. Remember that it is important to increase the cooking time by one third. 2. Never allow the foil to touch the sides of the oven. 3.

Soft Margarine – Use the oven settings recommended by the margarine manufacturer and not those indicated on the cooking chart. 23 THE ‘SLOW COOK’ SETTING The ‘Slow Cook’ setting on the main oven thermostat is used for slow cooking, keeping food warm and warming plates for short periods. USING THE ‘SLOW COOK’ SETTING FOR SLOW COOKING 1. All dishes cooked by the ‘Slow Cook’ setting should be cooked for a minimum 6 hours. They will ‘hold’ at this setting for a further hour but marked deterioration in appearance will be noticed in some cases. 2. Joints of meat and poultry should be cooked at Mk. 6 for 30 minutes before turning to the ‘Slow Cook’ setting and never be cooked lower than the middle shelf position. 3. Joints of meat over 6 lbs (2.7kg) and poultry over 4 lbs 8oz (2 kg) should not be cooked using the ‘Slow Cook’ setting. 4. Always stand covered joints on a rack over the meat tin to allow good air circulation. 5. A meat thermometer should be used when cooking pork joints and poultry. The internal temperature of the food should reach at least 88oC. 6. This method is unsuitable for stuffed meat and stuffed poultry. 7. Always bring soups, casseroles and liquids to the boil before putting in the oven. 8. Cover casseroles with foil and then the lid to prevent loss of moisture. 9. Always thaw frozen food completely before cooking. 10. Root vegetables will cook better if cut into small pieces. 11. Adjust seasonings and thickenings at the end of the cooking time. 12. Use the zones of heat in the oven, e.g. meringues and milk puddings can be cooked lower in the oven whilst other dishes requiring greater heat can be cooked above them. 13. Egg and fish dishes need only 1-5 hours cooking and should be included in day cooking sessions, when they can be observed from time to time. 14. Dried red kidney beans must be boiled for a minimum of ten minutes after soaking, before inclusion in any dish. 24 CARE AND CLEANING Switch off the electricity supply and allow to cool before cleaning the cooker. Clean the cooker regularly and wipe up spills soon after they occur to prevent them from becoming burnt on. Never use biological washing powder, caustic cleaners, harsh abrasives, scouring pads, steam cleaners, aerosol cleaners or oven chemical cleaners of any kind. Before moving your cooker ensure that it is cool and note that it is heavy (approximately 70 kg 155 lbs), so you may require assistance. To move the cooker forward, open the top oven/grill door and with both hands positioned under the roof of the compartment, lift and pull forward. Replace by pushing the cooker backwards. Check that the cooker is level. Take care to ensure that any floor covering is not damaged. MAIN OVEN HEAT CLEAN LININGS The oven roof, back and side linings are coated with a special enamel which has a continuous cleaning action. The higher the oven temperature the more effective the action. In most cases this cleaning operation will proceed during normal cooking. However, if roasting is done frequently, or high temperatures are not used regularly, it may be necessary to run the oven empty at Mark 8 for about two hours. It should not normally be necessary to clean the linings with water, but if desired, wipe them over with a soapy cloth, followed by a wipe with a damp clean cloth. OVEN DOORS The inner glass panel can be removed for easy cleaning. Unscrew the two screws securing the glass panel, taking care not to allow the glass to fall. The glass panel can then be washed at the sink. Refit the glass panel according to the instruction on it. Warning: The oven must not be operated with the inner glass panel removed. REPLACEMENT OF OVEN LIGHT BULB CAUTION: DISCONNECT THE APPLIANCE FROM THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY BEFORE REPLACING THE LAMP TO AVOID THE POSSIBILITY OF AN ELECTRIC SHOCK Light bulbs are not covered by the manufacturer’s guarantee. A new 15W, 300oC rated SES bulb can be obtained from your cooker supplier or any major electrical retailer. 1. Remove the shelves from the oven. 2. Unscrew the lens using a thick cloth to protect your fingers in the unlikely event of a lens fracture. 3. Unscrew bulb. 4. Fit new bulb and refit lens. 25 CARE AND CLEANING COOKER FINISH CLEANING METHOD Vitreous Enamel Hotplate, pan supports, burner caps, roasting dish, grill pan, main oven base, inside of grill compartment, inside of doors.

An adaptor backplate should, therefore, be fitted within the shaded area shown to allow the cooker to be pushed fully to the wall. If a forward facing backplate is used, it must be chased into the wall. 140 210 320 450 340 220 200 540 Connection to the cooker should be made with an approved appliance flexible connection to BS 669. A length of 0.9 to 1.25m is recommended. The length of hose chosen should be such that when the cooker is in situ, the hose does not touch the floor. The temperature rise of areas at the rear of the cooker that are likely to come in contact with the flexible hose do not exceed 70oC. 33 ELECTRICAL CONNECTION WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. CONNECT TO A 230-240V A.C. SUPPLY ONLY. Connection to the electricity supply should be made via a properly earthed, readily accessible wall socket which is adjacent to but not directly above, and not more than 1.25m away from the appliance and capable of electrical isolation. The mains lead should be routed such that it cannot touch hot parts of the cooker i.e. the back panel above a height of 650mm from the floor. Should this plug not fit the socket outlet in your home it should be cut off and replaced with a suitable plug as outlined below. NOTE: The removed plug cannot be used for any other appliance and should therefore be properly disposed of and not left where children might find it and plug it into a supply socket – with the obvious consequent danger. IF THE FITTED PLUG IS REMOVED The flexible mains lead must be correctly connected as below to a three pin plug of not less than 13 amp capacity. If a B.S. 1363 fused plug is used, it must be fitted with a 3 amp fuse which is approved to B.S. 1362. IMPORTANT: The wires in the mains lead fitted to this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code: GREEN AND YELLOW – EARTH BLUE – NEUTRAL BROWN – LIVE Blue to Neutral Cord Clamp Green & Yellow to Earth Brown to Live 3 Amp Fuse As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:– The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or by the earth symbol or coloured green or green and yellow. The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the N or coloured black. The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red. When wiring the plug, ensure that all strands of wire are securely retained in each terminal. Do not forget to tighten the mains lead clamp on the plug. As the appliance must be earthed, do not use 2-pin sockets outlets, if you are in doubt, consult a qualified electrician. Should the mains lead ever require replacement, it is essential that this operation be carried out by a qualified electrician and should only be replaced with a flexible cord of the same size i.e. 0.75mm2 cross sectional area and temperature rating of 850 C e.g. heat resisting PVC, available from our parts department (see Back Cover). IF A MOULDED PLUG IS FITTED In the event of replacing a fuse in the plug supplied a 3 amp ASTA approved fuse to BS1362 must be fitted. NOTE: The fuse cover must be refitted when changing the fuse. In the event of losing the fuse cover the plug must not be used until a replacement fuse cover has been obtained and fitted. A new fuse cover can be obtained from your local Electricity Board. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is that of the coloured marks or inserts in the base of the plug. Make sure that the cable does not become trapped when pushing the cooker into position. 34 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS INSTALLATION AND OPERATIONAL CHECKS After installation, check for gas soundness. The supply pressure can be checked at the grill injector. Access to the injector is by first removing the baffle at the front of the grill fastened by two screws. Then remove the fastening screw on the right hand side of the burner and slide the burner off the injector. Ensure that the grill burner is correctly located under the fixing screw on reassembly. Fit the hotplate burner bodies and caps, pan supports and shelf shield(s). Referring to the instructions for use where necessary, 1. Check that the hotplate and grill burners ignite correctly and burn with a steady flame. Check for a steady flame on the low setting. 2. Check that with the main oven set to mark 9, the burner ignites at low rate, and then increases to full rate within 60 seconds. Leave the oven full on with the door closed for 10 minutes, and check that when the control is turned to the ‘Slow Cook’ setting that the flame reduces. 3. Check that with the top oven set to mark 8, the burner ignites at low rate, and then increases to full rate within 60 seconds. Leave the oven full on with the door closed for 10 minutes, and check that when the control is turned to mark 1 that the flame reduces. 4. Check the operation of the oven timer and oven light(s). Instruct the user on operation of the cooker. NOTE: It is normal for a slight resistance to be felt when turning the Top Oven/Grill control to the oven settings, as the control operates a flap at the rear of the cooker. 35 Key Contacts Service Cannon has the largest appliance manufacturer’s service team in Europe, trained specialists directly employed by us to ensure your complete confidence.
