- This appliance is designed solely for use as a domestic appliance for cooking food. No other
type of use is permitted (e.g.: heating rooms). The Manufacturer declines all responsibility
for inappropriate use or incorrect setting of the controls.
- This appliance can be used by children from 8 years and above and persons with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have
been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and
understand hazards involved. Children shall not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user
maintenance shall not be made by children without supervision.
The accessible parts of the appliance may become very hot during use. Young children
should be kept away from the appliance and supervised to ensure that they do not play
with it.
The appliance and its accessible parts become hot during use. Care should be taken to
avoid touching heating elements. Children less than 8 years old shall be kept away, unless
continuo sly supervised.
During and after use, do not touch the heating elements or interior surfaces of the
appliance - risk of burns. Do not allow the appliance to come into contact with cloths or
other flammable materials until all the components have cooled sufficiently.
At the end of cooking, exercise caution when opening the appliance door, letting the hot
air or steam exit gradually before accessing the oven. When the appliance door is shut, hot
air is vented from the aperture above the control panel. Do not obstruct the vent apertures.
Use oven gloves to remove pans and accessories, taking care not to touch the heating

indicating operation.
When using the cast iron hotplates for the first time, set the knobs to 6 and allow them to operate for approx. 3 minutes in order to eliminate odours, placing a pot
with an appropriate diameter and half full of water on each hotplate.
Do not leave the hot plates turned on when they are empty.
Use pots and pans specifically designed for electric hobs, particularly those with multiple layer flat-bottoms.
Use pans whose bottom diameter is equal to that of the hotplates, or slightly larger.
To stop cooking and switch off the oven.

Cooktop Function Table
Description of function
(depending on model)
To allow dough to rise, to soften butter taken from the fridge, to keep baby bottles or food warm, also for making yoghurt,
melting chocolate, etc.
This function is only available when the residual heat indicator is on. For this function, make sure the residual heat indicator of
the desired hotplate is on. Turn the knob to
. To deselect the function, change the position of the knob.
To maintain a constant temperature of 60° until the end of cooking. To select this function, turn the knob to
(depending on model)
This function is used to bring water to the boil rapidly and remains on for a preset time. At the end of the preset time, the
cooktop automatically returns to the maximum power setting. This function can be selected even during cooking.
Attention: Before selecting this function, make sure the pot is positioned on the selected hotplate in order to avoid any damage
to the cooktop surface. The stated performance values for this function are those guaranteed for all glass ceramic cooktops.
For this function, place the pot on the selected hotplate and turn the knob to
. To deselect, change the position of the knob.
This is available on the front left and rear left hotplates. This extends the heating area of the cooktop in order to allow the use of
large, oval or rectangular pots or cooking receptacles. To select this function: turn the knob to
and wait until the residual
heat indicator for the hotplate begins to flash. Select the power setting required by turning the knob anti-clockwise.
The residual heat indicator remains on to indicate that the cooktop is in use. To deselect, turn the knob to “0”.
How to read the cooking table
The table indicates the best function to use for any given food, to be cooked on one or more shelves at the same time. Cooking times start from the moment food is
placed in the oven, excluding pre-heating (where required). Cooking temperatures and times are purely for guidance and will depend on the amount of food and
type of accessory used. Use the lowest recommended values to begin with and, if the food is not cooked enough, then move on to higher values. Use the accessories
supplied and preferably dark coloured metal cake tins and oven trays. You can also use pans and accessories in pyrex or stoneware, but bear in mind that cooking times
will be slightly longer. To obtain best results, follow the advice given in the cooking table for the choice of accessories (supplied) to be placed on the various shelves.
When cooking food that contains lots of water, preheat the oven.
Cooking different foods at the same time
Using the “CONVECTION BAKE” function (if present), you can cook different foods which require the same cooking temperature at the same time (for example: fish and
vegetables), using different shelves. Remove the food which requires less cooking time and leave food which requires longer cooking time in the oven.
Cook delicate desserts with the conventional function on one shelf only. Use dark coloured metal cake tins and always position them on the wire shelf supplied.
To cook on more than one shelf, select the forced air function and stagger the position of the cake tins on the shelves, aiding optimum circulation of the hot air.
To check whether a raising cake is cooked, insert a wooden toothpick into the centre of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is ready.
If using non-stick cake tins, do not butter the edges as the cake may not rise evenly around the edges.
If the cake “sinks” during cooking, set a lower temperature the next time, perhaps reducing the amount of liquid in the mixture and mixing more gently.
For sweets with moist fillings (cheesecake or fruit pies) use the “CONVECTION BAKE” function (if present). If the base of the cake is soggy, lower the shelf and
sprinkle the bottom of the cake with breadcrumbs or biscuit crumbs before adding the filling.
Use any kind of oven tray or pyrex dish suited to the size of the piece of meat being cooked. For roast joints, it is best to add some stock to the bottom of the pan,
basting the meat during cooking for added flavour. When the roast is ready, let it rest in the oven for another 10-15 minutes, or wrap it in aluminium foil.
- When you want to grill meat, choose cuts with an even thickness all over in order to achieve uniform cooking results. Very thick pieces of meat require longer
cooking times. To avoid the meat from burning on the outside, lower the position of the wire shelf, keeping the food farther away from the grill. Turn the meat
two thirds of the way through cooking.
To collect the cooking juices it is advisable to place a drip-tray with half a litre of water directly under the grill on which the meat is placed. Top-up when necessary.
Turnspit (only in some models)
Use this accessory to evenly roast large pieces of meat and poultry. Place the meat on the spit rod, tying it with string if chicken, and check that it is secure before
inserting the rod in the seat located on the front wall of the oven and resting it on the respective support. To avoid smoke and to collect cooking juices, it is advisable
to place a drip-tray with half a litre of water on the first level. The rod has a plastic handle which must be removed before starting to cook, and used at the end of cooking
to avoid burns when taking the food out of the oven.
Lightly grease the trays to ensure the pizza has a crispy base. Scatter the mozzarella over the pizza two thirds of the way through cooking.
Rising function (present only in specific models)
It is always best to cover the dough with a damp cloth before placing it in the oven. Dough proving time with this function is reduced by approximately one third
compared to proving at room temperature (20-25°C). Proving time for a 1 Kg batch of pizza dough is around one hour.
