Special precautions
The grills, particularly those with the pan bottom not in
stainless steel, are treated in the factory with mineral oil to
protect them from rust.
The oil should be carefully removed before heating the
pan, using hot water and detergent, not chlorine based
(less than 30 ppm). After washing, rinse with cold water
and heat to 300°C to dry, with the thermostat at the maxi-
mum . When the thermostat shuts down, the oven is ready
for cooking or, after protecting the bottom with a layer of
grease or cooking oil, ready to rest (after use). After every
use, especially when the pan is not in stainless steel, to
keep it in perfect condition and protect it from rust, repeat
the above operation of washing, drying and protecting
with grease or cooking oil.
If any rust should form on the bottom of the pan due to wa-
ter or moisture and lack of adequate protection after use,
it will continue to expand until it corrodes the pan. If this
should occur, the rust must be removed until the corroded
part is polished, using a pad of steel wool, for example, in
stainless steel and then washing, drying and protecting
as described above.
NOTE: Greasing or oiling the pan while still damp is
not only useless but absolutely dangerous as the rust
will continue to expand under the layer of grease.
