In order to keep your hob in good condition, you
must keep it clean, removing any food residue each
time you use it.
Always disconnect the hob from the electrical
power supply and wait until it cools before
Cleaning the surface of the hob:
Stainless steel surfaces
• The stainless steel surface may become stained
if it comes into contact with "hard" water for a
long period of time, or with extremely strong,
aggressive cleaning products. Always clean up
spillages as quickly as possible (water, sauces,
coffee etc). Wash with lukewarm water and a
mild detergent, rinse then dry carefully with a
soft cloth. Only clean very dirty surfaces with
products specially designed for stainless steel.
• Do not use harsh or corrosive products,
chloride based products or scourers.
• Do not steam clean.
• Do not use inflammable products.
• Do not leave acidic or alkaline based products
like vinegar, mustard, salt, sugar or lemon juice
on the hob.
Care and maintenance of the hob parts
The pan supports and gas burners can be removed
1. Hand wash carefully with hot water and a
neutral cleaning product making sure you
remove any ingrained dirt and ensuring that
none of the openings on the burner is
obstructed. The internal burner cap (D) on the
WOK burner is made of real brass and is subject
to natural burnishing when it heats up. Clean it
each time you use it with a product specifically
designed for brass.
Use hot water and a mild cleaning product to
clean the external burner cap (C) Never use
harsh products or scourers that could damage
the special surface covering.

and safety thermocouples, you have to clean the
terminal part very carefully to ensure they work
Frequently check them and, if necessary, clean with
a damp cloth.
Any remaining ingrained food should be removed
with a toothpick or needle.
To avoid damaging the electronic ignition do
not use it when the burners are not in their
Glass ceramic surfaces
Clean the cooking area after each use when it has
cooled down. This will prevent the built up of dirt
and make cleaning easier.
Important: Avoid the use of high pressure water
or steam cleaning equipment.
• Use a clean cloth, kitchen roll and washing up
liquid or a glass ceramic cleaner.
• Remove stubborn dirt with the scraper supplied
and ceramic cleaning products.
• Food spills should be cleaned off the glass
ceramic surface before they turn hard.
• Foods with high sugar content (toffee, fruit
juice, marmalade, etc.) that boil over while
cooking or spattered sugar stains resulting from
cooking should be removed immediately using
the scraper, or they may "etch" into the
• Do not use harsh products, bleach, oven
cleaner sprays or pan scourers.
The glass ceramic hob should be periodically
treated with a proprietary brand of wax.
Periodically check that dust does not gather on the
apparatus near the air cooling inlet or outlet
openings. This might obstruct ventilation and the
electronic cooling system and reduce the cooktop's
