To switch on a hotplate, turn the relevant control
knob anticlockwise to the required heat setting.
The control knob is numbered 1 - 6
0 - OFF
1 - Minimum
2 - Maximum.
The hob has two types of hotplates:
We recommend the plates are switched to maximum
(6) for a short while to boost the plate, and then
adjusted to the required setting.
The rapid hotplates are indicated by a red dot, and
will heat up more quickly than a normal plate. As the
red dots are painted on the plate, they may deteriorate
during use and even disappear completely after a
period of time. This will not affect the performance
of the hob.
It is important to note that the plate may smoke
a little and produce a slightly unpleasant odour
when used for the first time. This is quite
normal and will disappear after a few minutes.
Suggestions for the correct setting of the plates are
given in the following table.
