• Liquid petroleum gas sinks to the floor as it is heavier
than air. Therefore, rooms containing LPG cylinders
must also be equipped with vents to allow gas to
escape in the event of a leak. As a result LPG
cylinders, whether partially or completely full, must not
be installed or stored in rooms or storage areas that are
below ground level (cellars, etc.). It is advisable to
keep only the cylinder being used in the room,
positioned so that it is not subject to heat produced by

Fitting the appliance
Gas and mixed hobs are manufactured with type X
degree protection against overheating. The following
precautions must be taken when installing the hob:
• Kitchen cabinets adjacent to the appliance and taller
than the top of the hob must be at least 50 mm from
the edge of the hob.
• Hoods must be installed according to their relative
installation instruction manuals and at a minimum
distance of 700 mm from the hob.

! Before operating your new appliance please read this
instruction booklet carefully. It contains important
information for safe use, installation and care of the
700mm min.
• Place the wall cabinets
adjacent to the hood at a
minimum height of 540 mm from
the hob (see figure).
If the hob is installed beneath a
wall cabinet, the latter must be
situated at a minimum of 700 mm
above the hob (see figure).
Make sure you take all the necessary precautions to guarantee
proper installation in compliance with the applicable norms in
force regarding accident-prevention for electrical connection.
For the correct operation of the appliance when built into the
cabinet, it is vital that the minimum distances illustrated in Fig. 1
be respected. The hob features a type Y degree of protection
against overheating in compliance with norms. All surfaces
adjacent to the cabinet and the back panel should be made of
materials resistant to a temperature of 65°C.
700m m
2- Built-in hobs (Class 3) with edges lower than 58 mm
(see figure 2, detail H2). To install this type of hob, a
hole large enough to accommodate the whole lower
casing of the appliance must be made on the
worktop intended to be under the hob. Remember to
leave a gap of at least 1 cm between the lower
casing and the worktop around the whole perimeter
of the appliance (the underside of the casing can,
however, touch the surface below it). To fit the
appliances, follow the instructions given above in
point 1 or use any supplementary instruction leaflet
that is provided in special cases.
Securing the appliance to the cabinet
There are three different groups of appliance as far as
installation is concerned:
HEIGHT >58mm
1- Built-in hobs to be slotted in (Class 3 - see figure 2,
detail H1). In this case it is necessary to make a
hole in the worktop whose measurements match
those of the hob. The measurement at the side
should be reduced by 1 cm so as to ensure that 1
cm of the perimeter of the hob overlaps with and
rests on top of the supporting surface. To slot in the
hob flush with the worktop, the cut-out on this
supporting surface must be lowered (see figure 4a),
so that both the edge of the hob and the seal under
it can be positioned there. Before fitting the hob to
the worktop, position the seal provided along the
perimeter of the hob. Brackets for fixing hobs to the
cabinet have been provided, and these should be
fitted as shown in detail S (fig.3).
3- Sit-on hobs (Class 1) with edges higher than 58 mm
(see figure 2, detail H3). In this case, the lower
casing of the hob does not protrude further than the
edge of the appliance. Even when the hob is resting
on the worktop, it will suffice to leave space for the
gas supply tube and electricity supply cable. To fit
this type of hob, follow the instructions below (fig. 5):
• Fix the two screws provided "A" at a distance from
the back panel as shown in figure 5, leaving the
heads of the screws sticking out of the wood by 1.5
• Hook the hob onto the two screws "A" and push it
towards the back.
• Fix the appliance to the cabinet at the rear, using the
two brackets "B" and the four screws "C" (these are
all provided).
X mm
X mm
N.B.: to make maintenance operations more efficient,
the area around the hob must be easily accessible after
it has been installed (i.e. there are no completely shutoff elements).
N.B.: An insulating wooden panel should be fitted
beneath the hob, positioned at a minimum of 20 mm
from the hob underside. This wooden panel must be
removable in order to allow for any maintenance
operations beneath the hob.
Electrical connection
Gas connection
Hobs equipped with a three-pole power supply cable are
designed to operate with alternating current at the voltage
and frequency indicated on the data plate (this is located
on the lower part of the appliance). The earth wire in the
cable has a green and yellow cover. If the appliance is to
be installed above a built-in electric oven, the electrical
connection of the hob and the oven must be carried out
separately, both for electrical safety purposes and to make
extracting the oven easier.
This appliance is designated and set to work with
the gas indicated on the label situated on the type

Double crown wok burner
This burner consists of two concentric burners which
can operate either together or separately.
Use of the double crown wok burner on the
maximum setting gives a very high power which
reduces cooking times with respect to conventional
Moreover the double crown wok provides a more
uniform distribution of heat on the bottom of the pan,
when using both burners on minimum.
To ensure that the double crown wok is used to its
full potential, never set the inside ring to minimum
and the outside ring to maximum at the same time.
Pots and pans of all sizes can be used. In the case
of the smaller pots and pans we recommend the use
of only the internal burner.
There is a separate control knob for each of the
parts of the double crown wok burner.
! Make sure the pans do not overlap the edges of
the hob while it is being used
! This hob is supplied with a pan support adaptor.
This accessory should be used to increase the
stability on the Double crown wok burner when only
the inner part (inner DCDR) is operated and there is
the need to place small pans (under 12 cm
diameter) on it.

Practical advice on using the Oval burners
The two Oval burners have been designed to
increase the flexibility of your hob. They can be
used as individual burners, to cook with two pans at
the same time (Fig. A), or they can be turned 90°
and used together (Fig. B). This second option is
ideal when using the special cast iron Griddle
supplied with the hob or the optional Teppan Yaki,
as well as with a long pan, or fish kettle.
To turn the two burners 90°, proceed as follows:
• Make sure that the burners are cool;
• Lift the burner completely out of its housing;
• Replace it in its housing in the position desired;
• Make sure that the burners are positioned
correctly before use.

Fig. B
With the prolonged use of the Griddle or Teppan
Yaki, the surface of the hob may become yellow. To
prevent this, it is recommended to clean it with the
Steel Care specific cream provided with the hob.
