Start-up and use
! The position of the corresponding gas burner or electric
hotplate* is shown on every knob.
Gas cooker hobs are equipped with discrete power
adjustment that allows for accurately adjusting the flame to 5
different power levels. Thanks to this system, gas hobs are
also capable of guaranteeing the same cooking results for
each recipe, as the optimal power level for the desired type
of cooking can be identified in an easier, more accurate way.
Gas burners
Each burner can be adjusted to one of the following settings
using the corresponding control knob:
●
Off
Dual control:
Each ring comprising the burner has its own control knob:
The knob marked with the symbol controls the outer ring.
The knob marked with the symbol controls the inner ring.
To activate any one of the two rings, press the corresponding
knob and turn it anti-clockwise to the maximum power
setting
.
In order to use the double-flame burner to its full
potential, avoid simultaneously setting the inner ring to
minimum power and the outer ring to maximum power.
Single control:
The rings comprising the burner are activated through a
single control knob.
To simultaneously turn on both rings, position the knob on
the symbol
(max) knob anti-clockwise.
Maximum
Minimum
(min) then press and turn the
To turn on the inner ring only, position the knob on the symbol
To light one of the burners, hold a lit match or lighter near
the burner and, at the same time, press down and turn the
corresponding knob anti-clockwise to the maximum setting.
Since the burner is fitted with a safety device, the knob
should be pressed for approximately 2-3 seconds to allow
the automatic device keeping the flame alight to heat up.
When using models with an ignition button, light the desired
burner pressing down the corresponding knob as far as possible
and turning it anticlockwise towards the maximum setting.
(max ) - (min) then press and turn the knob clockwise.
(to switch modes, it is necessary to switch off the burner).
To switch off the burner, press and turn the knob clockwise
until it stops (when it reaches the “●” position).
Practical advice on using the burners
! If a flame is accidentally extinguished, turn off the control
knob and wait for at least 1 minute before trying to relight it.
To ensure the burners operate efficiently:
• Use appropriate cookware for each burner (see table)
so that the flames do not extend beyond the bottom of
the cookware.
• Always use cookware with a flat base and a cover.
To switch off the burner, turn the knob in a clockwise
direction until it stops (when reaches the “●” position).
• When the contents of the pan reach boiling point, turn
the knob to minimum.
Discrete flame adjustment
The selected burner can be adjusted - by means of the knob
- to 5 different power levels. To shift between levels, simply
turn the knob towards the desired power level.
A click signals the passage from one power level to the other.
The selected power level is
indicated by the corresponding
symbol (symbols
) and,
on hobs equipped with a display,
by the LEDs that turn on (5 =
max. power; 1 = min. power). The
system guarantees accurate flame
adjustment and uniform cooking
results by facilitating selection of the desired power level.
The “double-flame” burner
This gas burner consists of two concentric flame rings that can
operate jointly or independently (in case of dual-control only).
As the burner is fitted with a safety device, the knob
should be pressed down for approximately 2-3 seconds until
the device keeping the flame automatically alight heats up.

Practical Advice on Using the Half FishKettle Burner *
The two “Half Fish-Kettle” burners, are eliptic in form and can
be turned up to 90°. This makes the cooktop more flexible in
terms of how it can be used.
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.
In addition, the two burners can be used in tandem or
speartely with cookware of different shapes and sizes:
• Double burner for a fish-kettle or oval cookware (Fig. A).
• Double burner for a griddle or rectangular/square
cookware with minimum dimensions of 28x28 cm (Fig. B)
• Single burner for medium size cookware (diameter of
16-20 cm) (Fig. C).

Precautions and tips
! This appliance has been designed and manufactured in
compliance with international safety standards. The following
warnings are provided for safety reasons and must be read
carefully.
General safety
• This is a class 3 built-in appliance.
• Gas appliances require regular air exchange to
maintain efficient operation. When installing the hob,
follow the instructions provided in the paragraph on
“Positioning” the appliance.
• These instructions are only valid for the countries
whose symbols appear in the manual and on the
serial number plate.
• The appliance was designed for domestic use inside the
home and is not intended for commercial or industrial
use.
• The appliance must not be installed outdoors, even in
covered areas. It is extremely dangerous to leave the
appliance exposed to rain and storms.
• Do not touch the appliance with bare feet or with wet or
damp hands and feet.
• The appliance must be used by adults only for
the preparation of food, in accordance with the
instructions outlined in this booklet. Any other use of
the appliance (e.g. for heating the room) constitutes
improper use and is dangerous. The manufacturer
may not be held liable for any damage resulting from
improper, incorrect and unreasonable use of the
appliance.
• Ensure that the power supply cables of other electrical
appliances do not come into contact with the hot parts
of the oven.

• When unplugging the appliance always pull the plug from
the mains socket, do not pull on the cable.
• Never carry out any cleaning or maintenance work
without having detached the plug from the mains.
• In case of malfunction, under no circumstances should
you attempt to repair the appliance yourself. Repairs
carried out by inexperienced persons may cause injury
or further malfunctioning of the appliance. Contact a
Service Centre (see Assistance).
• Always make sure that pan handles are turned towards
the centre of the hob in order to avoid accidental burns.
• Do not close the glass cover (if present) when the gas
burners or electric hotplates are still hot.
• Do not leave the electric hotplate switched on without a
pan placed on it.
• Do not use unstable or deformed pans.
• Remove any liquid from the lid before opening it.
• The appliance should not be operated by people
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capacities, by inexperienced individuals or by
anyone who is not familiar with the product. These
individuals should, at the very least, be supervised by
someone who assumes responsibility for their safety or
receive preliminary instructions relating to the operation
of the appliance.
• Do not let children play with the appliance.
• The appliance is not intended to be operated by
means of an external timer or separate remotecontrol system.
Disposal
• When disposing of packaging material: observe local
legislation so that the packaging may be reused.
• The European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical
and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old
household electrical appliances must not be disposed
of in the normal unsorted municipal waste stream. Old
appliances must be collected separately in order to
optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they
contain and reduce the impact on human health and the
environment. The crossed out “wheeled bin” symbol on
the product reminds you of your obligation, that when you
dispose of the appliance it must be separately collected.
Consumers may take their old appliance to public
waste collection areas, other communal collection
areas, or if national legislation allows return it to
a retailer when purchasing a similar new product.
All major household appliance manufacturers are active
in the creation of systems to manage the collection and
disposal of old appliances.
Maintenance and care
Switching the appliance off
Disconnect your appliance from the electricity supply before
carrying out any work on it.
Cleaning the appliance
! Do not use abrasive or corrosive detergents such as
stain removers, anti-rust products, powder detergents or
sponges with abrasive surfaces: these may scratch the
surface beyond repair.
! Never use steam cleaners or pressure cleaners on the
appliance.
• It is usually enough to wash the hob with a damp sponge
and dry it with absorbent kitchen roll.
• The removable parts of the burners should be washed
frequently with warm water and soap and any burnt-on
substances removed.
• For hobs which ligth automatically, the terminal part of
the electronic instant lighting devices should be cleaned
frequently and the gas outlet holes should be checked
for blockages.
• Stainless steel can be marked by hard water that has
been left on the surface for a long time, or by aggressive
detergents containing phosphorus. After cleaning, rinse
and dry any remaining drops of water.
! It is not necessary to remove the pan supports in order to
clean the hob surface. Thanks to the support system, simply
lift and hold the pan supports or rotate them until they rest
against a rear support.
Gas tap maintenance
Over time, the taps may become jammed or difficult to turn.
If this happens, the tap must be replaced.
! This procedure must be performed by a qualified
technician authorised by the manufacturer.
