Environmental hints

stic "cooking" use only.

PRECAUTIONS AND USEFUL SUGGESTIONS
● The Manufacturer cannot be held responsible
for damages derived from improper, wrong
and unreasonable use. (i.e. heating rooms).
The use of electric household appliances requires observation of several fundamental rules.
● The glass ceramic hob has a good mechanical
strength and can withstand small accidents,
misuse; however, if some objects should fall
on the surface and damage it, please do not
use the hob. Disconnect it from the electrical
supply and contact the nearest Service Centre.
● Do not use the glass ceramic hob as a working
surface.
● Do not use plastic utensils or aluminium foil
containers to cook foods on the glass ceramic
hob.
● Before operating the hob, check that the
cooking zones are clean, with no grease,
food or liquid deposits: do not use pans with
wet bases.
● When the hob is in use, the surface of the
cooking zones is very hot. For this reason
keep children away from it.
● As overheated fats and oils can easily ignite,
do not leave frying food unattended.
● Do not operate the cooking zones without
anything on them.
● Do not let electric wires (i.e.: of small hou-
sehold appliances) come into contact with
warm parts of the hob.
● Remember synthetic clothes, plastic utensils
or any other similar materials could ignite on
the hob.
● Take care not to scratch the surface of
the glass ceramic hob with the bottom of
pans.
● For best cooking results, we recommend the
use of stainless steel pans with flat bases. The
diameter of the base must be the same or slightly greater than that of the plate.
● Never sprinkle sugar or sweetened foods
such as jams, jellies and juices on the hob.
Should it happen, please clean thoroughly
the hob by carefully following the cleaning
instructions.

HOW TO USE YOUR GLASS CERAMIC HOB
● The cooking zones are clearly marked on the
hob surface.
● The switching on, adjustment and switching
off of the cooking zones are controlled by
turning the knobs situated on the oven
clockwise.
These knobs are marked 0 to 6 or 0 to 11.
Each number corresponds to a cooking power.
● The hob is provided with 4 indicator lights
showing when the cooking zones are hot.
These indicator lights switch on as soon as the
cooking zones reach a high temperature.
These indicator lights remain on even after
switching off of the relevant cooking zone
and they switch off only when the temperature of the cooking zone is no longer dangerous.
HOW TO USE THE DUAL COOKING ZONE
There is the possibility to increase or enlarge the
cooking zone by switching on an additional
second zone. You switch on the second zone
turning the knob clockwise to the end position
(above position 11)
.
Afterwards you can adjust on the requested
power (between 11 and 1). To reuse the internal cooking zone, switch off and switch on
again.
