Before connecting the appliance to the power supply, check that the
wires of your electric installation have sufficient diameter to supply
power to the appliance normally. The fuse for the installation should be
10 amps.
It is necessary to provide a bipolar cut-off device in the power supply circuit,
where the opening of the contacts is more than 3 mm.
The electric connection should be done before the appliance is set in the
The drawer should be connected by a (standard) power cord with three 1
mm² couplers (1 single phase + 1 N + ground) to the 220-240 V single phase
power supply via an electric circuit corresponding to the standard CEI 60083

on the appliance and should be connected to the
ground of the installation.
In the case of a connection via an electric outlet, the outlet should be

The neutral on the heating drawer (blue wire) should be connected to neutral
on the power supply.
If the supply lead is damaged, it must be replaced by an equivalent lead

Set the appliance into the niche in the cabinet. Make certain that the body of
the appliance is positioned correctly.
Open the drawer and fasten the appliance to the sides of the cabinet with 2
screws and the 2 spacers delivered with the appliance.
Using your warming drawer
The appliance should be used exclusively to preheat dishes.
The appliance uses a hot air system to heat the dishes. A fan distributes the
heat from the resistor in the drawer. The dishes are heated rapidly and
uniformly by circulation of hot air.
A protective grid prevents the dishes from coming into contact with the
resistor or the fan.
The floor of the drawer is covered with an antiskid mat that prevents the
dishes from sliding when the drawer is opened.
The controls include a temperature knob and a Start/Stop switch. These are
only visible when the drawer is open.
When the drawer is closed, the signal light on the front of the drawer comes
on when the appliance is running.
ƒ Put the dishes in the drawer.
ƒ Select the temperature.
ƒ Set the timer (minimum 10 minutes).
The signal light shows that the power is on.
ƒ Close the drawer
When the timer runs out, the hot air heating system stops and a bell rings.
To turn the bell off, turn the knob to 0.
Using your warming drawer
The temperature knob adjusts the temperature between 30 and 70 °C.
The most appropriate temperatures for the types of dishes used are as
follows :
ƒ 40 °C: for cups or glasses. Hot drinks stay hot longer when poured into
cups or glasses preheated to this temperature.
ƒ 60 °C: for plates and dishes. Food served on preheated plates or dishes
maintain their heat.
Preheating time depends on several factors:
the thickness of the dishes and the material they are made
the load
disposal of the load
temperature setting
Consequently, we cannot give times that will correspond systematically.
A few hints :
For a temperature setting of 60 °C, heated evenly:
ƒ dishes for a meal for six take about 30 min.
ƒ dishes for a meal for twelve take about 40 min.
After using the drawer a few times, you will know for yourself how long it
takes to heat your dishes.
