Safety

Cooker technology is constantly improving. The way you use your new cooker may be different from the way
you used your old one. Please read the whole instruction book before using your new cooker. This cooker is
intended for normal domestic use. Take care of the instruction book which will be needed by the new owner if the
cooker is sold or passed on to someone else. Do not hesitate to contact us with questions or viewpoints about the
cooker and its use.

Children and the cooker
Children are naturally curious and interested in most
things, including the cooker. From a safety point of view,
we would like to emphasis the following for those with
children at home:
There should be worktops on both sides of the cooker
extending at least 40 cm to left and to right. Alternatively
the cooker can be installed with a wall or a tall kitchen
unit on one side and a worktop on the other side. The

Children should be allowed to help with cooking, but
teach them that pans, hotplates and ovens become hot and
retain their heat for some time after use.

CAN CAUSE BURNS
Installation
Work on the cooker must be carried out by a qualified
electrician. Work performed by unqualified persons can
damage the cooker, and may also lead to personal injury
and/or damage to property.
The cooker is heavy. Certain edges and corners which
will not normally be exposed may be sharp. Use gloves
when moving the cooker.

When using the cooker
Never use the ceramic hob if it is cracked, as water from
spillages and/or cleaning could penetrate down to live
conductors. If the hob is damaged, disconnect the cooker
from the electrical supply and contact your service centre
to have the cooker repaired.
Never place aluminium foil, plastics etc. on the ceramic
hob. If a hotplate is switched on by mistake, these materi-
als will rapidly start to burn or melt.
Never leave the cooker unattended while deep frying,
or when using it for melting fats, paraffin wax or other
flammable substances. In the event of a fire, turn off all

the controls and turn off the cooker hood fan.
THE FIRE WITH A PAN LID
Use only pans which are intended for ceramic hobs.
Use only ovenproof dishes and containers in the oven.
Check the bases of your pans. Pans with convex bases are
poor conductors of heat, and also tend to spin easily on
the flat ceramic hob.
Check that the cooker is switched off when not in use.
All controls should be turned off.
Warning! Alcohol and other liquids that can
form explosive gases, or other substances that
could cause a fire or explosion, must not be
used in the oven.
Great care must be taken when using such liquids and
substances on the hob. For example, when preparing food
on the hob with flaming brandy, or any other type of alco-
hol, there is always a risk that fat particles in the hob fan
may catch fire with serious consequences. Flames and
burning fat spills can also cause personal injury.
Cleaning
Keep the ceramic hob and oven clean. Fat and spillages
give off smoke and odours when heated, and, at worst,
can cause fires.
Use the scraper to remove immediately (while the hob
is still warm) any spilt sugar or syrups (e.g. jam), and
melted plastics and foil. These can damage the hob if left.
Be careful as the razor blade is extremely sharp.
Maintenance and service
Turn all controls off before changing any bulbs.
Service and repairs should be carried out by a service
company approved by the supplier. Use only spare parts
supplied by such companies.
At the end of the cooker's life
Help prevent accidents when the cooker has reached the
end of its useful life. Make sure first that the lead is com-
pletely disconnected from the electrical supply (pull out
the plug, or have the cooker safely disconnected from the
wall), then cut the electrical lead at the point where it
enters the cooker. Make sure that the door catch/door
catches have been deactivated.
