Rinse always thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
Notes regarding the pressure kettles:
Do not use detergents containing high percentages of am-
monia and sodium to clean the lid gasket, as it could be
damaged and its tightness quickly affected.
Special procedures in case of prolon-
ged inactivity
If the appliance is to stand idle for any length of time (e.g.
holidays or seasonal closing), it must be cleaned thorou-

Leave the lid open so that air can circulate inside the vat.
For added care after cleaning, the external surfaces can
be protected by applying a proprietary metal polish.
Be absolutely sure to shut off all utilities (electrical power
supply and water).
Air the room appropriately.

Special procedures in case of failures

has any warranty commitments for damage caused

- check that the power ON/OFF switch installed before
the appliance is on;

vat. This occurs especially when the appliance is tur-
ned on and the vat and/or the jacket is/are empty.
