Instructions for the user
3.1.1 Power failure
In case of a prolonged power outage you can manually light the surface burners.
Hold a lit match near a burner and turn the control knob to the minimum flame symbol
burner lights, turn the knob to the desired setting.

3.2 Practical advice on using the burners
NOTE: Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation around the edges of the pan stand.
To achieve a better performance of the burners and and a lower gas
consumption, flat bottomed, levelled cookware with lids should be used, and
they should also be proportioned to the burners (see paragraph “3.3
Diameter of cookware”).
To avoid overcooking or damaging the surface top while cooking, all
cookware or griddles must be positioned within the cooktop perimeter and
at a minimum distance of 3-4 cm / 1 ½” from the knobs.
Check burner flames occasionally for proper size and shape. A good flame
is blue in color, not yellow. Keep the burner ports area free of soil and do not
allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to enter the burner
ports.
NOTE: Before turning a control knob, place filled cookware on the pan stand. Do not operate a burner
using empty cookware or without cookware on the pan stand.
Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface cooking area, element or surface burner.

3.4 Cookware
NOTE: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides, a well-fitting lid and the material should be of
medium-to-heavy thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop. Aluminum and copper may be used as a core or base in
cookware. However, when used as a base they can leave permanent marks on the cooktop or pan
stands.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is transferred, which affects cooking
results. A nonstick finish has the same characteristics as its base material. For example, aluminum
cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the properties of aluminum.
Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material characteristics.

4.1 How to clean Stainless Steel
WARNING
BURN HAZARD
You must wait until the cooktop has completely cooled before starting any
cleaning operations.
4.1.1 Regular cleaning of the cooktop
To clean and preserve the stainless steel surfaces, use only specific products that do not contain
abrasives or chlorine-based acids.
To keep the cooktop in good condition, it should be cleaned after every use.
How to use: pour the product on a damp cloth and wipe the surface, rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft
cloth or deerskin.
4.1.2 Food stains or residues
Never use metallic sponges or sharp scrapers, as they will damage the surface.
Use normal, non-abrasive products for cleaning stainless steel together with non-scratching sponges
and, if necessary, wooden or plastic scrapers.
Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth or deerskin.

Wash all parts in hot water and with a non-abrasive detergent taking care to remove all tough spots.
-
Make sure to remove all deposits.
-
Wait for all parts to dry completelybefore reassembling.
-
Replace the flame-spreader crowns, checking that they are positioned in
their housing with their respective caps, taking care that flame-spreader
holes A correspond to the spark plugs and the thermocouples.
4.2.1 Ignition plugs and thermocouples
For best performance, the ignition plugs and thermocouples must always be kept very clean.
Check them frequently and if necessary clean them with a wet cloth.
