EN 6 Simmer burner Normal burner Rapid burner 2-Wok burner Pan support Drip tray SAFETY What you should pay attention to • Ensure that there is adequate ventilation during use. • Keep natural ventilation openings open. • When using the hob for long periods, extra ventilation is necessary. Open a window for instance or install a mechanical fan. • Use the hob only for preparing dishes. The appliance is not suitable for space heating. • Never flambé under an extractor hood. • The high flames can cause a fire, even if the fan is switched off. • The burner parts are hot during and immediately after use. Do not touch them, and avoid contact with non-heat-resistant materials. • Never immerse hot burner parts in cold water. The rapid cooling can damage the enamel. • The distance from the pan to a knob or non-heat-resistant wall should always be greater than two centimetres. In the case of smaller distances the high temperature may cause the knobs or wall to discolour and/or distort. • Always use the pan supports and suitable cooking utensils. • Always place the pan on the pan support. Placing the pan directly on the burner head can result in dangerous situations. • Aluminium trays or foil are not suitable as cooking utensils. They can become burnt into the burners and pan supports. • Installing burner parts and pan supports. • The hob can only function effectively if the burner parts have been assembled using the guide ridges. • Ensure that the pan supports lie properly against each other and flat on the drip tray. Only then can the pans be positioned stably. Safe use • The device will become hot during use and will remain so for some time after it has been switched off. So please be sure not to touch the device while it is hot. • Always wear oven gloves or use oven cloths when operating the device. Keep oven gloves or oven cloths away from the flame. • Do not warm closed tins and such like on the hob. There will be a buildup of pressure that will cause tins to explode. You might get injured or scalded. • The device is not to be positioned nor used outdoors. EN 7 SAFETY • Do not use the device as a worktop. The device may be switched on by accident or still be hot, which means objects could melt, become hot or catch fire. • Never cover the device with a cloth or something similar. If the device is still hot or is switched on, there is a risk of fire. • Be extra careful when using oils or fats. Overheated oil or fats may catch fire. Risk of fire! • Under no circumstances should you use water to try and extinguish the flames if the oil or fat were to catch fire!

EN 8 CONTROLS Igniting and adjusting Each burner can be adjusted continuously between the high and low positions. 1 1. 2. 3. 4. 3 2 0-setting Burner indication Low setting High setting 4 Flame failure device Your gas hob has a flame failure device. This ensures that the gas supply is shut off if the flame goes out during cooking. Operating the thermal flame failure device Press the control knob and turn it anti-clockwise. Hold the control knob pressed (in the high setting) for approximately 3 seconds after the burner has ignited. The flame failure device switches on. EN 9 COMFORTABLE COOKING Optimal use of the hob Always ensure that the flames remain below the pan. If flames play around the pan, a lot of energy is lost. In addition, the handles can get too hot. Do not use pans with a base diameter less than 12 cm. Smaller pans will not be stable. Wrong Right • When frying, stir-frying, heating through large quantities and deepfrying it is best to use the rapid or wok burner. • Preparing sauces, simmering and boiling can be done best on the simmer burner. On its high setting this burner is large enough for cooking food right through. • Cook with the lid on the pan. This way you save up to 50% energy. • Use pans with a flat, clean, dry base. Pans with a flat base stand stably and pans with a clean base transfer the heat more effectively to the food. Wokburner (type Hg1664s, 1774s/a and Hg1984s/a) With the wok burner you can prepare dishes at a very high temperature. For this purpose it is important: • to cut the ingredients into strips, slices or pieces before cooking; • to use good-quality oil, such as olive, maize, sunflower or peanut oil when stir-frying. A small quantity is enough. Butter and margarine on the other hand will burn because of the high heat; • to place the dishes with the longest cooking time in the pan first, so that at the end of the cooking time all ingredients are cooked al dente at the same time. Use of the auxiliary support Hg1774s/HG1774a/Hg1984s/Hg1984a • The auxiliary support supplied for the wok burner or available as an accessory provides additional stability in case of a wok with a round base. • The auxiliary support for the wok has special recesses so it can be positioned neatly on top of the standard wok pan support. Hg1664s • The auxiliary support supplied for the wok burner or available as an • accessory provides additional stability in case of a wok with a flat base. EN 10 MAINTENANCE General Your appliance has been manufactured from high-grade materials, which are easy for you to clean. • Regular cleaning immediately after use prevents over-cooked food being able to become ingrained and cause stubborn stains that are difficult to remove. Use a mild cleaning agent. • Clean the control knobs, burners and pan supports first and then the stainless steel drip tray. This avoids the stainless steel drip tray getting dirty again during cleaning. • Clean the spark plugs preferably with a cloth. Do this carefully. the spark plug can become defective. The sparkplug will only operate correctly in a dry environment. If the plug is very dirty, you may clean the point with a tiny brush. • Set the pan supports down vertically, without sliding them over the stainless steel drip tray. • Place the pan supports back in the right order. The text ‘FRONT’ at the bottom of all pan supports helps positioning these parts (see Hg1654/1774/1984). Hg1654 Hg1774/1984 Hg1664 EN 11 MAINTENANCE Assemble the burner parts using the guide ridges.

Never use scouring powder, scouring pads, sharp objects or aggressive cleansing agents. EN 12 MAINTENANCE Stubborn stains on stainless steel • If spilled, acid fluids and sugary foodstuffs like red cabbage, beetroot, soy sauce, applesauce and rhubarb may cause the surface to discolour. Stubborn stains on stainless steel are best removed with a cleaning agent for stainless steel. Always polish in the direction of the steel structure to avoid shine spots. (This kind of damage is not covered by the warranty!) • If the above methods do not remove the stains, clean the plate with a special cleaning agent for stainless steel. Remember to treat the entire drip tray in order to avoid discolouring. Also, as a follow-up treat the drip tray with a polish or maintenance agent for stainless steel. Please note that over the years the surface will slightly discolour. Cleaning the pan support • The enamel on the pan supports is suitable for cleaning by dishwasher. However, the connection with the rubber feet is not. Therefore do not clean the pan supports in the dishwasher. Moreover, the pan supports might show some discoloration if they were washed in the dishwasher. If the rubber feet are lost, the pan support is likely to damage the drip tray. Brass wok burner parts • A few parts of the work burner are made from brass. It is normal for the colour of the brass to change as a result of the high temperatures that occur when cooking with a wok. Cleaning removable burner components • The removable burner components (including wok) are best cleaned with a mild cleaning product and a soft cloth. In the case of obstinate stains you can soak the parts in hot suds. • Burner parts should not be cleaned in the dishwasher. The parts may be damaged by the dishwasher detergent! • Never use scouring powder, scouring pads, sharp objects or aggressive cleansing agents. EN 13 MAINTENANCE Cleaning removable knobs • If the knobs are very dirty, you can remove them temporarily to clean them. The knobs are best cleaned with a mild cleaning product and a soft cloth. Wearing rubber gloves makes it easier to remove the knob! Attention! Avoid an excess of moisture around the knob holes when cleaning. Keradur® burner bases • The burner bases have a unique Keradur® surface coating. The special dirt-repelling lacquer has a ceramic filling which makes cleaning easier and substantially improves the durability of the burners. The burner bases are best cleaned with a mild cleaning product and a soft cloth.
