Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning can be
carried out, you must DISCONNECT the hob
from the electricity supply.
Never use steam or a steam cleaning
machine to clean the appliance.
The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still warm, as spillage
can be removed more easily than if it is left to cool.
The Hob Top
Regularly wipe over the hob top using a soft cloth well
wrung out in warm water to which a little washing up liquid
has been added. Avoid the use of the following:
household detergent and bleaches;
impregnated pads unsuitable for non-stick saucepans;
steel wool pads;
bath/sink stain removers.
Should the hob top become heavily soiled, the following
products are recommended:
For stainless steal hobs use a proprietary stainless
steel cleaner.
For other hobs use warm water and soft detergent.
The control knobs may be removed by carefully pulling
them upward for easier cleaning.

The Hotplates

Spills onto the actual plate should be removed using
warm water and a soft brush, nylon or plastic scourer. To
keep the plates looking as new, hotplate conditioner can
be purchased from most hardware stores.
Alternatively, wipe the plates with a drop of olive oil on a
kitchen towel to avoid rust. It is important to note that the
plate will smoke a little and produce a slightly unpleasant
odour when next used.
Stainless steel parts: the stainless steel spill rings may
become straw coloured with use. Use a proprietary
stainless steel cleaner to remove this straw discolouration.
This also applies to the area around the hotplates on
stainless steel hobs.
Failure to clean and condition hotplates may lead
to rust and corrosion forming on the surface.
