After each use of the oven, a minimum of cleaning will help keep the oven perfectly clean.
Do not line the oven walls with aluminium foil or single-use protection available from stores. Aluminium foil or
any other protection, in direct contact with the hot enamel, risks melting and deteriorating the enamel of the
insides. In order to prevent excessive dirtying of your oven and the resulting strong smokey smells, we
recommend not using the oven at very high temperature. It is better to extend the cooking time and lower the
temperature a little. In addition to the accessories supplied with the oven, we advise you only use dishes and
baking moulds resistant to very high temperatures.
1.4 Waste management and environmental protection
This appliance is labelled in accordance with European Directive 2012/19/EU regarding
electric and electronic appliances (WEEE). The WEEE contain both polluting substances
(that can have a negative effect on the environment) and base elements (that can be
reused). It is important that the WEEE undergo specific treatments to correctly remove and
dispose of the pollutants and recover all the materials. Individuals can play an important
role in ensuring that the WEEE do not become an environmental problem; it is essential to
follow a few basic rules:
- the WEEE should not be treated as domestic waste;
- the WEEE should be taken to dedicated collection areas managed by the town council or a registered
In many countries, domestic collections may be available for large WEEEs. When you buy a new
appliance, the old one can be returned to the vendor who must accept it free of charge as a one-off, as
long as the appliance is of an equivalent type and has the same functions as the purchased appliance.
SAVING AND RESPECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
Where possible, avoid pre-heating the oven and always try to fill it. Open the oven door as infrequently
as possible, because heat from the cavity disperses every time it is opened. For a significant energy
saving, switch off the oven between 5 and 10 minutes before the planned end of the cooking time, and
use the residual heat that the oven continues to generate. Keep the seals clean and in order, to avoid any
heat dispersal outside of the cavity. If you have an electric contract with an hourly tariff, the "delayed
cooking" programme makes energy saving more simple, moving the cooking process to start at the
reduced tariff time slot.
