Lighting the cooker
The ignition system works by means of a battery. Details on how to
replace the battery are given on page 27.
Hotplate
To light
1 Lift up the lid. You cannot use the hotplate when the lid is down.
2 Push in the control knob and turn to the large flame symbol (highest
setting), and press the ignition button immediately. When the burner
has lit release the button.
Warning: If the ignition button is not pressed immediately a build up of
gas may cause the flame to spread.
For your safety
If you close the lid of the cooker while any of the hotplate
burners are lit the gas will go out. This is because it would be
dangerous if the burners stayed on when the lid was closed.
Always use the control to turn off a burner. Do not use the lid
cut-off device. This will only cut off the gas when the lid is
closed.

To turn off any burner
1 Push in the control knob and turn it to the off position. This is shown
by a large dot.
For your safety
When you are lighting any burner check that it has lit before
you leave the cooker.
When you are turning off a burner, do not leave the cooker
until the flame has gone out.
6
The grill
The grill is a high-speed grill. The instructions below tell you how to vary
the heat setting and how to change the height of the grid to suit the food
you are cooking. You should remember to turn the food regularly.
You should not use the grill to keep food warm as it will continue to
cook the food.
For your safety
You must keep the grill door open when the grill burner is lit.
Accessible parts may be hot when the grill is used. Young
children should be kept away.
Heat control
The grill control has two heat
settings.
The control knob turns to the left
from 'OFF' to 'HIGH' and then to
'LOW'. Use the high setting for fast
cooking such as toast. Use the low
setting to cook thicker food such as
chicken after you have browned it
on the high setting.
Cooking positions
You can put the grill shelf in either
of the two positions.
Most food should be cooked on
the grid in the grill pan. You can
turn the grid over to suit different
thicknesses of food.
You can place some dishes
straight on to the grill shelf. This is
useful when you are browning the
top of food such as cauliflower
cheese.

General
Natural Gas Models only
The grill pan handle can be
removed. To put the handle on to
the pan you should put the chrome
bracket over the cut out in the pan
and then slide the handle on to the
left as far as the bump on the pan.
When you are not using the grill you should remove the handle and
store the pan on the shelf in the grill. Turn the grill burner off before you
store the pan. Remember that the pan will get hot when you are using
the oven.
L.P. Gas Models only
When storing the grill pan the shelf needs to be placed in the top
position.
Store the grill pan on the base of the grill compartment. Turn the grill
burner off before you store the pan. Remember that the pan will get hot
when you are using the oven.
You can use the grill compartment to warm plates when you are
using the oven.
Preheating
You don't usually need to preheat the grill. You may wish to preheat it
for a couple of minutes when you are cooking steak or when browning
food.
Positioning food on
the grid
Place food such as toast, tea-cakes
and muffins towards the centre of
the grid.
Place food which needs a more
gentle heat, such as tomatoes and
mushrooms towards the edge of the
grid.
Arrange meat, meat products
and fish to suit their thickness and
how you like them cooked.
8
The hotplate
You can only use the hotplate when the lid is open. If you have any
trouble lighting a hotplate burner turn all hotplate control knobs off and
make sure the hotplate burner parts have been replaced correctly. See
page 21 for more information.
Heat control
The hotplate control knobs turn to
the left from 'OFF' to 'HIGH' and
then to 'LOW'. You can adjust the
heat by turning the control between
the highest and lowest settings.
These are shown as a large and a
small flame symbol.
Burner sizes
The hotplate has three burner sizes
to suit different types of cooking:
Largest burner (Rapid) - use a large
pan for food such as chips.
Medium burners (Normal) - use for
everyday cooking.
Small burner (Simmer) - use for
simmering food such as soups and
stews.
The largest pan which you should use on any burner is 230mm (9").
The base of the smallest pan should not measure less than 100mm (4").

For your safety
1
Take care to avoid burns and scalds when you are
reaching across the hotplate.
2
Use pans with flat bases. They are more stable than
pans which are warped.
3
Do not use pans with very heavy handles which cause
the pan to tip.
4
Put pans on the centre of the burners.
5
Position pan handles so they cannot be accidentally
knocked.
6
Take extra care when you are deep fat frying. Do not
cover the pan with a lid.
Do not leave a pan unattended. If the pan catches fire,
leave it where it is and turn off all controls.
Place a damp cloth or a fitting lid over the pan to
smother the flames.
Never put water on the fire.
Leave the pan to cool for 30 minutes.
7
If you are using a Wok we recommend it has a flat base
as it will stand stable on the pan supports. If you use a
round based Wok with a collar support, the collar must
be of the open wire work type. A closed collar will affect
the performance of the burner. Before you use the Wok
make sure that the collar is stable on the pan supports.
Always follow the instructions that come with the Wok.
8
Do not use the lid as a work surface or chopping board.
This could damage the glass and reduce its strength.
10
Helpful hints
1
Keep flames under the base of the pans. If the
flames lick round the sides of the pans you are
wasting gas.
2
Only heat the amount of liquid you need. Do
not overfill pans.
3
Cover pans with a lid whenever possible. The
food will heat up more quickly and there will be
less steam in the kitchen.
4
Try cooking more than one vegetable in the
same pan, for example potatoes and carrots.
5
Cut vegetables into smaller pieces. This way
they will cook more quickly.
6
A pressure cooker will save time and energy.
11
The hotplate
SONATA 50 GL
The oven
SONATA 50 GL
The oven
Before you use the oven you should wipe it out with a damp cloth to
remove any dust.
Heat zones
There are zones of heat within the oven. The
temperature in the middle is the gas mark
you have chosen. The top of the oven is
slightly hotter and the lower shelf slightly
cooler. The base of the oven is quite a lot
cooler. You can make use of these heat zones when you are cooking
foods that need different temperatures all at the same time.
If you are cooking more than one tray of similar items, for example
cakes or biscuits, swap the trays around during cooking. Or you can
remove the top tray when the food is cooked and move the lower tray to
the higher shelf to finish cooking.
Preheating
You do not need to preheat the oven when casseroling and so on.
Preheat the oven for baking or when you are cooking sensitive food
such as Yorkshire puddings, soufflés and yeast mixtures.
When you are cooking or reheating frozen or chilled food read the
instructions on the packing.
When you need to preheat the oven, we recommend you do so for
20 minutes.
Oven shelves
You can slot the oven shelves into any of five
positions. Positions are counted from the
top downwards.
For safety the shelf will only pull out so
far. If you want to remove a shelf completely
pull it forward as far as it will go, raise the
front edge and lift it out. To put the shelf into
a different position keep the front edge
raised, slot the shelf on to the runner, lower
the front edge and slide the shelf in.
12
Baking trays and dishes
For your safety
Never place cooking dishes, trays
and so on over the oven burner.
This will damage the cooker as
well as the ovenware and possibly
the floor covering underneath the
cooker.
Leave a gap of 13mm (½") between all dishes
and the sides of the oven so the heat can
circulate properly.
Do not push dishes too far back as food will
burn if it overhangs the burner flames.
For the best results we recommend that you use a baking tray which is
310mm (12") square. If you use a tray or tin which is larger than this,
you may need to turn the food around during cooking.
Place single dishes on the centre of the shelf. You may need to turn
large items around during cooking.
Condensation
Condensation may form on the cooker. This is quite normal and nothing
to worry about. The condensation forms when heat and moisture are
present, for example during cooking. Whenever possible try to make
sure that food which contains a lot of moisture, for example casseroles,
are covered. If you do notice any condensation, wipe it up straight away.

General points for slow cooking
Frozen foods
Thaw thoroughly before cooking.
Thickening
Toss meat in flour for casseroles. Blend cornflour with water and add it
at the end of cooking.
Flavouring
Flavours are retained because there is little evaporation. Adjust at the
end of the cooking time.
Liquid
Reduce normal liquid quantities slightly as there is little evaporation
during cooking.
Milk and milk products, for example cream
Add towards the end of the cooking to prevent curdling.
Reheating
Left over food should be cooled quickly and refrigerated.
Food should not be reheated using the slow cook setting. Reheat
conventionally or in a microwave. Food must only be reheated once.

Care and cleaning
For your safety
For hygiene and safety reasons you must keep this gas cooker
clean. A build up of fat or other foodstuff could cause a fire.
Try to mop up spills and splashes as soon as they happen. But
be careful as parts of the cooker will be hot.
Do not use any polishes, caustic cleaners, abrasives, washing soda or
soap except those recommended.
Please note: If we recommend you use hot
soapy water we mean hot water with
washing up liquid in it and not any other
cleaning product.
If you own a dishwasher please read the
operating instructions for the machine before
you wash any part of your cooker.
Clean your cooker regularly using a cloth that has been wrung out in
hot soapy water. Rinse and polish it dry using a soft cloth.
When you remove parts of your cooker for cleaning do not plunge
them into water whilst they are very hot as this may damage the finish
of the parts.
The hotplate
Clean the hotplate top using a mild abrasive such as 'Jif'. Take care not
to damage the spark electrodes. If the spark electrodes are damaged
the burners will not light.
You can remove the pan supports, burner caps and burner crowns
to clean them. Again take care not to damage the spark electrodes.
If any food spills during cooking you can place the pan on another
burner to finish cooking. Then you can remove the dirty parts and clean
them before the spill 'burns on'.
20
You can wash the removable parts in very hot soapy water. You
may use mild abrasives. Make sure that the electrode and the hole and
slots in the crown are not blocked with food or cleaning materials.
Clean the burner crowns by soaking them in very hot soapy water.
You can remove any stubborn stains by scouring with a soap filled pad
such as 'Brillo'. If you look after the burner crowns in this way they will
stay reasonably clean. However the surface will dull with time.
Aluminium based saucepans can leave shiny metal marks on the pan
supports. Clean the pan supports regularly to remove the marks using a
mild abrasive like 'Jif' with a soft scourer. For more stubborn marks you
can use a soap-filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
After cleaning the cooker parts, dry them
thoroughly before you put them back.
When replacing hotplate burner parts
1. Crown to body (Do not try to force the
crown on to the body).
Make sure that the hole in the crown is
over the electrode. Check that the two
longer location pegs sit in the slots in the
body. When the crown is in this position
let it fall freely on to the body. Check that
the crown can be moved slightly from
side to side.
2. Cap to crown
Place cap centrally on the top of the
crown (enamel side up). Move sideways
and front to back to check the cap is
properly fitted.
3. Check for ignition
If a burner will not light then you need to
check the crown and cap positions.
The grill
Clean the grill compartment frequently using hot soapy water.
After use you can soak the grill pan for a few minutes and then clean
it using mild abrasives or a soap filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
Clean the shelf using hot soapy water. Mild abrasives can be used if
necessary.

Care and cleaning
SONATA 50 GL
Care and cleaning
SONATA 50 GL
The oven
The top, sides and back of your oven are coated in a special material
which helps to keep itself clean.
Follow these simple rules to maintain the appearance of the special
finish.
Do not overfill dishes or they will
boil over.
Do not put dishes too high in the
oven. If you do they may stick to the
oven roof.
Cover your roasting tins with foil.
This will prevent fat splashing.
Use a roasting tin which is just large
enough for the meat and potatoes.
This will help to reduce fat
splashing.
Dry any vegetables that you are
going to roast. If they are wet there
will be more fat splashing.
Follow the oven cleaning cycle
regularly.
22
Oven cleaning cycle
You need to follow the cycle to keep the inside of the oven in good
condition. The type of cooking you do will affect how often you need to
follow the cycle.
If you do a lot of roasting and very little other baking you should
follow the cleaning cycle once a week. If you do very little roasting you
will only need to follow the cleaning cycle every 2-3 weeks.
To carry out a cleaning cycle:
1. Remove the oven shelves.
2. Set the oven to mark 5 for at
least 30 minutes.
3. Turn the temperature up to
mark 7 for 2 hours or until the
oven is presentably clean.
Some staining will remain.
Do not use any cleaning agents
or scrapers on the inside of the
oven. Do not wash the special
finish.
General
Clean the base of the oven, the oven shelves, the meat tin and the
oven door while they are still slightly warm. This way you can easily
remove any splashes and spills. Wipe the base with a cloth that has
been wrung out in hot soapy water. You may use mild abrasives.

Cleaning between the outer and inner
door glass
You can remove the glass from the oven door if you need to.
To remove the outer glass
1 Open the oven door so you can get at the two cross head screws on
the top of the oven door.
2 Loosen these two screws using a pozidrive screwdriver.
3 You should hold the door glass securely in place with one hand,
whilst removing the screws completely, with the other hand. If you
do not do this, the door glass could fall forward.
4 Using both hands, gently tilt the top of the door glass towards you.
Lift it slightly to disengage the locators at the bottom of the door.
5 Clean the outer and inner glass using hot soapy water and mild
abrasives such as 'Jif'. DO NOT try to clean the aluminium foil which
is inside the door. The foil is there to help keep the door cool, if it is
damaged it will not work.
6 Replace the glass by holding it in both hands and gently placing the
locators into the holes of the brackets at the bottom of the door.
Push the top of the glass towards the oven door, and make sure the
screw location holes line up.
7 Hold the glass in place with one hand and replace the cross head
screws into the location holes, with the other hand. Give the screws
one turn to make sure the glass is held in place.
8 Tighten the screws using a pozidrive screwdriver. Close the door.
24
Installing the cooker
For your safety
This cooker must be installed and serviced by a competent
person as stated in the Gas Safety (Installation & Use)
regulations current editions.
It is important that the cooker is suitable for your gas supply.
Your installer should check the data badge.
Ensure that a stability bracket is fitted.
Location
For your safety
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of
heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure that
the kitchen is well ventilated: keep natural ventilation holes open
or install a mechanical ventilation device (mechanical extractor
hood).
Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for additional
ventilation, for example opening of a window, or more effective
ventilation, for example increasing the level of mechanical
ventilation where present.
For further details see page 33.

General information
For your safety
Do not block any of the cooker vents.
Never line any part of the cooker with aluminium foil.
Don't let items which can catch fire or electric mains leads
such as kettle flexes trail over any part of the cooker.
Moving your cooker
You may damage some soft or badly fitted floor coverings when you
move the cooker. The floor covering under the cooker should be
securely fixed so it does not ruck up when you move the cooker across
it. Alternatively you could remove the floor covering.
To move the cooker open the grill door. Raise the cooker off its front
feet by lifting it from inside the grill. Pull the cooker forward. When you
replace the cooker push it back to the stop and make sure there is the
same gap at each rear corner.
The battery
The battery for the ignition will
usually last for many months. If the
ignition system doesn't work, you
probably need to replace the
battery.
The battery is at the base of the
cooker on the left-hand side of the
front. You can see it through the
slots in the plinth below the oven.
When you need to replace the battery, pull the cooker forward and
tilt it back slightly. You should support the cooker with something, a
telephone directory would be ideal. The battery you need is AA size.
If you have difficulty removing the battery from the holder you can
push it out using something blunt like a spoon handle.
When you fit the new battery, make sure the positive end (marked
with a + sign) is on the right-hand side as the picture shows.
When the battery is in place, gently lower the cooker and push it
back into position.
You can light the burners with a match until you have time to change
the battery.
