Maintenance and Cleaning
Disconnect the appliance from the electrical
supply, before carrying out any cleaning or
The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still warm, as spillage
can be removed more easily than if it is left to cool.
Wash the enamelled components with warm soapy
water. Never use abrasive cleaners
Frequently wash the "caps" and the "crowns" with hot
soapy water, carefully taking away any built-up of food.
Carefully wash the stainless steel components with
water, then wipe them dry with a soft cloth.
If the marks are particularly difficult to remove, use
common non-abrasive cleaners or specific products.
Never use steel wool pads or acids.
Cast Iron Pan Supports
The hob has cast iron pan supports.
Take care when removing them. They are fair heavy and
could damage the hob or your kitchen furniture if you let
them fall down.
To keep the pan supports in the correct position, they
are hooked into hinges at the back of the hob. Thanks to
these hooks, you can lift the pan supports for easier
When removing the pan supports, lift them up as shown
in Fig. 2. Never turn the pan supports on the hinges, this
could damage them (Fig. 3).
This keeps the pan supports fixed in place when the

After cleaning, be sure to wipe dry with a soft cloth.

pad can be used with caution, if the marks are
particularly difficult to remove. After cleaning, be sure to
wipe dry with a soft cloth.
The electric ignition is obtained through a ceramic
"electrode" and a metal electrode (Fig. 1 - letter C). Keep
these components very clean, to avoid lighting difficulties,
and check that the burner crown holes are not
