Warning and safety instructions

Warning and safety instructions

Installation and connection

When using your appliance, follow basic safety precautions including the following:

Read all instructions before using for the first time.

Be certain your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician.

To guarantee the electrical safety of this appliance, continuity must exist between the appliance and an effective grounding system. It is imperative that this basic safety requirement be met. If there is any doubt, have the electrical system of the house checked by a qualified electrician. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for damages caused by the lack, or inadequacy of, an effective grounding system.

Do not connect the appliance to the main electrical supply using an extension cord. Extension cords do not meet the safety requirements of this appliance.

Before servicing, disconnect the power supply by either removing the fuse, unplugging the unit or manually “tripping” the circuit breaker.

Correct usage

Do not operate the appliance untilproperly installed in the countertop.

This appliance is intended for residential use only.

Use the appliance only for its intended purpose. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for damages caused by improper use of the grill.

Never use the appliance to warm or heat the room.

The water trough must be full when using the appliance. To avoid spills do not fill above the indication mark

Do not switch on the appliance when the heating element is raised.

This appliance must not be set up or operated outdoors.

Warning and safety instructions

Protection from damage

Do not use any type of aluminium products including pots, pans, and foil on the grill. Aluminium will cause overheating and may damage the grill grate.

Do not drop anything on the ceramic surface. Even a light object could cause damage in certain circumstances.

Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the appliance. Steam could penetrate electrical components and cause a short circuit.

In areas subject to infestation by cockroaches or other vermin, keep the appliance and its surroundings clean at all times. Any damage caused by pests will not be covered under warranty.

5

Warning and safety instructions

Protection from burns

The appliance becomes very hot when in use. Make sure that no one comes in contact with it. The heating element and grate may be hot even though they are dark in color.

Do not store toys or items of interest to children in cabinets above or behind the appliance. Children climbing onto the grill to reach these items may become seriously injured.

Do not allow children to operate or play with, or near, the grill.

Use only dry, heat resistant potholders. Moist or damp potholders used on hot surfaces can result in steam burns. Do not let the potholder touch the hot heating element. Do not use towels or other bulky items near the appliance.

Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while cooking.

Do not heat unopened food containers. Build-up pressure may cause the container to burst and result in injury.

Do not store items on the grill when not in use.

Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate on the appliance.

Do not leave the appliance unattended while in use. Overheated food can ignite.

Extinguish flames immediately

Replace the lava rocks regularly.

Rocks saturated with oil or fat catch fire easily. The grill trough and the lava rock container should be cleaned after each use to keep them free of oil and fat.

Never put water or ice on to a hot grill. This can cause a serious reaction leading to injury.

Do not use water on grease fires.

Smother any fire or flame, or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

Do not store aerosols, combustibles and/or any other easily flammable materials underneath or adjacent to the grill.

– up to line b (about 2 quarts [2.5 l ]) when grilling without lava rocks , or

– up to line c (about 1 quarts [1.2 l ]) when grilling with lava rocks .

The operating indicator lamp which is left of the control knob will illuminate when the appliance is switched on. It goes off after the appliance is switched off.

Safety cut-out feature

Using the appliance

Correct procedure:

Preheat the grill by setting it to "12" and allowing it to run for approximately 5 minutes.

Grill meat for a few minutes at the highest setting to sear the outside and seal in the juices.

After searing, set the control knob to

"9" or "10" to finish cooking the meat.

Turn the food frequently to prevent burning.

Tips on grilling

– To minimize splattering, dry moist foods with paper towels before grilling.

– Salt meat after grilling to prevent it from drying out.

– Marinating meats or fish before grilling will often enhance their flavor.
