V. CLEANING
CAUTION!
Before carrying out any cleaning operation, disconnect the
appliance from the power supply.

1. EXTERNAL PARTS

SATIN-FINISH STEEL SURFACES (daily)
• Clean all steel surfaces: dirt can be easily removed as
soon as it forms.
• Remove grime, fat and other cooking residuals from steel
surfaces when cool using soapy water, with or without de-
tergent, and a cloth or sponge. Dry the surfaces thoroughly
after cleaning.
• In case of encrusted grime, fat or food residuals go over
with a cloth or sponge, wiping with the grain of the satin
finish, and rinsing often: rubbing in a circular motion com-
bined with the particles of dirt on the cloth/sponge could
ruin the steel's satin finish.
Metal objects can ruin or damage the steel: ruined sur-
faces become dirty more easily and are more subject to
corrosion.
Restore the satin finish if necessary.
SURFACES BLACKENED BY HEAT (when necessary)
Exposure to high temperatures can cause the formation of
dark marks. These do not constitute damage and can be
removed by following the instructions given in the previous
paragraph.
NB: Avoid dirtying the inside of the Venturi tubes.
The presence of dirt inside the appliance can obstruct the
nozzles, and thus affect the flame.

2. OTHER SURFACES

CAST IRON ELECTRIC HOT-PLATES
Clean the hot-plates with a damp cloth, then switch them on
for a few minutes to dry rapidly; lastly, lubricate them with
a light film of cooking oil. DO NOT pour cold liquids on the
hot-plates while they are hot.
IMPORTANT! With electric appliances, make sure no water
comes into contact with electrical components: water pene-
tration can cause short circuiting and dissipation, tripping the
appliance's protection devices.

3. PERIODS OF DISUSE

If the equipment is not going to be used for some time, take
the following precautions:
• Close cocks or main switches ahead of the appliances.
• Go over all stainless-steel surfaces vigorously with a cloth
moistened with paraffin oil in order to spread a protective
film.
• Periodically air the room.
• Have the appliance checked before using it again.
• To prevent too rapid evaporation of accumulated moisture
with consequent breakage of elements, switch electric
appliances on at minimum heat for at least 45 minutes
before reuse.

4. INTERNAL PARTS

IMPORTANT! Operations to be carried out only by spe-
cialised technicians.
• Check the condition of internal parts.
• Remove any deposits of grime inside the appliance.
• Check and clean the discharge system.
NB ! In particular environmental conditions (e.g. intensive
use of the appliance, salty environment, etc.) the above cle-
aning should be more frequent.
(every 6 months)
