Storage in or on appliance. Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near surface units.

Do Not use water on grease fires. Smother fire or flame by using dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth.

Use proper pan size. This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different size. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit gas burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose flames out of the pot bottom to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.

Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. Boil-over causes smoking and greasy spill-over that may ignite.

Protective liners. Do not use aluminium foil to line surface unit drip areas and oven bottoms.

Glazed cooking utensils. Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glaze utensils are suitable for cooking range use without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.

Utensils handles should be turned inward and not extended over adjacent surface units. To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface units.

Do Not touch surface units or areas near units as well as oven gas burner or interior oven surface. Surface units and oven gas burners may be hot even though they have no flame. Areas near surface units and interior oven surfaces may become hot enough to cause burns. Make sure hot areas have had sufficient time to cool, before touching them.

Use care when opening door. Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food.

Do not heat unopened food containers. Build-up of pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury. Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed.

3 9880021100 11-2009.doc

Placement of oven racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating element in oven.

Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on hood and hood filter. (when a cooking hood is installed with appliance).

When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread the flame. (when a cooking hood is installed with appliance).

CAUTION:

1) Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapours, liquids or items in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

2) Never use appliance as a space heater to heat or warm a room.

3) Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air by blocking the room vents or air intakes. Restriction of air flow to the gas appliance prevents proper performance and increases carbon monoxide emission to unsafe levels.

4) Continuously use of the appliance may need extra ventilation, this can be solved by just opening a window or increasing exhaust power of a cooking hood.

5) If flame should go out during operation, turn the burner off. If a strong gas order is detected, open a window and wait five minutes before relighting the burner.

6) Be sure all control knobs are set in the OFF position prior to supplying gas to the hob.

COOKWARE

To achieve optimum surface cooking performance, select heavy gauge, flat, smooth bottom pans that conform to the diameter of the cooking area as well as straight sides.

Pan size should match the size of the cooking area. Pan should not extend more that 2” beyond the cooking area on gas cooking surface.

Proper pans will reduce cooking times, use less energy and cook food more evenly.

Remember to use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay cool. To minimise burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, do not extend handles over adjacent surface burners. Always turn pan handles toward the side or back of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached by children.

NOTES FOR COOKWARE ON GAS BURNERS
