7. Cooking suggestions
7.1
Suggestions for using the hob burners correctly
The diameter of the base of cooking utensils
should fit the diameter of the burner used (see
adjacent table). The burner flame must never be
wider than the diameter of the utensils. Use
utensils with a flat base. Where possible use pots
with a lid, as this allows less power to be used. To
reduce cooking times for vegetables, potatoes,
etc., use a small amount of water.

Suggestions for using the ceramic hob correctly
In order to obtain maximum efficiency and efficient consumption, it is essential to use only utensils
that are suitable for use on a ceramic hob. The diameter of the base of the utensil must be the
same as the diameter of the outline of the cooking area. Energy is wasted if they are not the same.
The base of the utensil must be very thick and perfectly flat. It should also be clean and dry, as
should the glass on the hob.
Do not use cast iron pots or pots with a rough base, as they may scratch the surface.
7.3
Suggestions for using the oven correctly
The oven is multifunction. It is possible to cook traditionally, with convection and with the grill.
The oven door should be completely closed for all types of cooking including grilling.
7.3.1 Traditional cooking
With this type of cooking, the heat comes from the top and the bottom. It is therefore preferable to
use the central guides. If the cooking requires a hotter temperature from the bottom or from the top,
use the lower or upper guides. Traditional cooking is recommended for all food that requires high
cooking temperatures, or long brazing times. This system is also recommended when cooking with
dishes made of terracotta, porcelain and similar materials.
7.3.2 Convection cooking
With this type of cooking, the food is heated by preheated air that is circulated in the oven thanks to
a fan located on the rear wall of the oven. Heat rapidly and evenly reaches all parts of the oven,
thus enabling different food to be cooked at the same time on different shelves. Humidity is
eliminated from the air and the drier area prevents odours and flavours from being spread and
mixed. The possibility of cooking on more than one shelf allows you to cook many different dishes
at the same time. Biscuits and mini pizzas can be cooked in three different baking tins. The oven,
however, can also be used for cooking on a single shelf. The lower shelves can be used so that it
is easier to monitor cooking.
Convection cooking is particularly convenient for bringing frozen food rapidly back to room
temperature, for sterilising preserves or home-made fruit in syrup and, finally, for drying
mushrooms or fruit.
16
Instructions for the user
7.3.3 Cooking with the grill
The heat comes from the top. Almost all meat can be grilled, with the exception of lean game and
dishes such as meat-loaf. Meat and fish to be grilled should be lightly drizzled with oil and placed
on the grid bars, which should be placed in the guides closest to or furthest away from the grill
element, depending on the thickness of the meat, so as to avoid burning the surface and cooking
too little inside.
Suitable for: relatively thin meat; toasted sandwiches.
Pour 1 or 2 glasses of water into the dripping pan to avoid smoke forming due to splashes of juice or
fat.
st
While cooking with the grill, the dripping pan should always be positioned in the 1 guide from the
bottom.
7.3.4
Cooking with the ventilated grill
Using the combination of grill and fan .
This type of cooking allows the heat to penetrate gradually inside the food, even though the surface
is directly exposed to the grill.
Suitable for: thicker meat; game-birds.
7.3.5 Cooking meat and fish
Meat to be cooked in the oven should weigh at least 1 kg. Very tender red meat to be cooked rare
(roast beef, fillet, etc.), or which should be well cooked on the outside and preserve all its juices on
the inside, require cooking on high temperatures for a short time (200-250°C). White meat, gamebirds and fish require cooking on low temperatures (150-175°C).
The ingredients for the sauce should only be placed in the baking tin if the cooking time is short,
otherwise, they should be added in the last half hour. Meat can be placed on an ovenproof plate or
directly on the grid bars, below which the dripping pan should be placed to collect the juice. Press
the meat with a spoon to check if it is done. If it is firm, it is cooked.
At the end of the cooking, wait at least 15 minutes before cutting the meat so as not to lose the
juices. Before serving, plates can be warmed in the oven at minimum temperature.
7.3.6 Baking
Beaten mixtures must adhere to the spoon because excess fluidity would prolong the cooking time.
Sweets require moderate temperatures (generally between 150-200°C) and require preheating
(approximately 10 minutes). The oven door must not be opened until at least ¾ of the way
through the cooking time.

Instructions for the user
8. Cleaning and maintenance
Before cleaning or carrying out maintenance, switch off the power supply to the appliance
and close the gas tap.
Do not clean the surfaces of the appliance when they are still hot.
8.1
Cleaning stainless steel surfaces
To clean and preserve the stainless steel surfaces and remove the toughest stains, always use
specific products, provided they do not contain chlorine-based abrasives or acid substances,
or a little warm vinegar.
Pour the product onto a damp cloth and wipe the steel surface. Rinse carefully and dry with a soft
cloth or a piece of deerskin.
Do not under any circumstances use metallic sponges or sharp scrapers that may damage
the surfaces. Only use non-scratch, non-abrasive sponges and, if necessary, wooden or plastic
utensils.
8.2
Cleaning enamelled surfaces
Clean with a non-scratch, non-abrasive sponge dampened with soap and water. Grease stains
can easily be eliminated with hot water or a product specifically made for cleaning enamel. Rinse
carefully and dry with a soft cloth or a piece of deerskin.
Do not use products containing abrasives, scouring pads, steel wool or acid, which may
spoil the surfaces. Do not leave acid or alkaline substances on the enamel (lemon juice, vinegar,
salt, etc.).
8.3
Cleaning the knobs and the control panel
Clean the knobs and the control panel with a damp cloth.
8.4
Cleaning the grids and burners
To clean the grids and hob burners, remove them
from their housing by lifting them upwards as
shown in the figure, and immerse them in a
solution of warm water and non-abrasive
detergent for about ten minutes. Rinse and dry
carefully.
Always check that none of the burner openings
is clogged.
Be sure to refit the burner correctly, checking the
flame is uniform.
We recommend carrying out this operation at least
once a week and each time it is necessary.

Instructions for the user
8.5
Cleaning the igniter plugs and thermocouples
In order for the igniter plugs and thermocouples to operate correctly, they
must be kept clean at all times. Check them frequently and, if necessary,
clean them with a damp cloth. Any dry residue should be removed with a
toothpick or needle, taking care not to damage the insulating ceramic part.
8.6
Cleaning the ceramic hob
The ceramic hob must be cleaned regularly, each time it is used if possible, when the latent heat
lights are off.
Any light-coloured marks caused by aluminium-based pans can be removed with a damp cloth
dipped in vinegar.
Any burnt residue left after cooking can be removed with a wooden spatula. Rinse with water and
dry well with a clean cloth.
Do not under any circumstances use abrasive or corrosive detergents (e.g. powder products,
oven sprays, stain-removers or metallic sponges).
Any grease deposits on the ceramic hob can be removed more easily by heating it for
approximately 20-30 minutes (knob in position 11). Afterwards, this residue can be cleaned off
with a wooden spatula. Allow the surface to cool, rinse with water and dry well with a clean cloth.
The cooking surface of the ceramic hob is extremely resistant. It is not however unbreakable and
may be damaged, above all by pointed or hard objects if dropped onto it with a certain force. Do
not use the ceramic hob if the surface is broken, cracked or split! Contact your local Service
Force Centre immediately.
8.7
Cleaning the oven
Clean the oven regularly, each time it is used if possible, after leaving it to cool: in this way it is
possible to remove any residue more easily, preventing it from burning the next time the oven is
used.
Clean the stainless steel parts and enamelled parts as described in the corresponding sections “8.1
Cleaning stainless steel surfaces” and “8.2 Cleaning enamelled surfaces”.
Take out all the removable parts and wash them separately. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a clean
cloth.

26
All rooms require an opening window or equivalent, and some rooms will require a permanent
vent as well.
For room volumes up to 5m³ an air vent of 100cm² is required.
If the room has a door that opens directly to the outside, and the room exceeds 1m³ no air
vent is required.
For room volumes between 5m³ and 10m³ an air vent of 50cm² is required.
If there are other fuel burning appliances in the same room B.S. 5440 part 2 should be
consulted to determine the air vent requirements.
The appliance must not be installed in a bed sitting room of less than 20m or in a bathroom or
shower room.
Instructions for the installer
Windows and permanent vents should therefore not be blocked or removed without first consulting
a Corgi gas installer.
Failure to install appliances correctly is dangerous and could lead to prosecution.
L.P.G. cookers MUST NOT be installed below ground level i.e. in a basement or aboard any boat,
yacht or other vessel.
12.5 Gas connection
We recommend checking that the appliance is properly set up for the type of
gas distributed. The threaded ½" gas connection pipe is located at the rear
on the right hand side of the appliance.
The cooker is designed to match the depth of standard 600mm worktops. A bayonet connector
should, therefore, be fitted within the shaded area shown to allow the cooker to be pushed in fully
and secured to the wall with a stability chain.
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 position, 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 70°C.
27
Instructions for the installer
12.6 Stability chain
The cooker is fitted with a stability device such as a
proprietary stability chain as shown and firmly secured to the
fabric of the building.
Whatever the position, remember to leave enough room for
the cooker to be pulled out for cleaning and service.
The wall behind the cooker between the hotplate and 450mm above, and across the width of the
cooker, must be an incombustible material such as ceramic wall tiles.
This appliance is designed not to project in front of standard 600mm worktops (excluding handles).
To achieve the best fit the cooker must be pushed against the wall.
As this appliance is very heavy it should be situated on a suitably hard surface as to ensure
servicing and installation is made possible with minimal impact on the floor surface.
28
Instructions for the installer
12.7 Gas regulations
