Your hob has burners of different diameters. The most economic way of using gas is to choose the correct size gas burners for your cooking pan size and to bring the flame to the minimum position once the boiling point is reached. It is recommended to always cover your cooking pan.
In order to obtain maximum performance from the main burners, use pots with the following flat bottom diameters. Using smaller pots than the minimum dimensions stated below will cause energy loss.
Rapid Burner: 22-26cm Medium Burner: 14-22cm Auxiliary Burner: 12-18cm Make sure that the tips of the flames do not spread out of the outer circumference of the pan, as this may also harm the accessories around the pan (handles etc.) When the burners are not in use for prolonged periods, always turn the main gas control valve off.
Use only flat bottomed pans and with a sufficiently thick base.
Ensure that the base of the pan is dry before placing it on the burners.
The temperature of accessible parts may be high when the appliance is operating. So it is important to keep children and animals out of the reach of the burners during and after cooking (until the cooker has cooled down). After use the hob remains very hot for a prolonged period of time, do not touch it and do not place any object on top of the hob.
Never place cutlery or lids on the hob as they will get hot and could cause serious burns.
1. Turn off the burner.
2. Cover the pan with a fire blanket or damp cloth. This will smother the flames and extinguish the fire.
3. Leave the pan to cool for at least an hour before attempting to move it. Injuries are often caused by picking up a hot pan and rushing outside with it.
