Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning can be
carried out, you must DISCONNECT the hob
from the electricity supply.
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, it is
recommended that a cleaning product such as Hob Brite
or Bar Keepers Friend is used.
The pan supports are dishwasher proof. If washing them
by hand, take care when drying them as the enamelling
process occasionally leaves rough edges. If necessay,
remove stubborn stains using a paste cleaner.
The burner caps and crowns can be removed for cleaning.
Wash the burners caps and crowns using hot soapy water,
and remove marks with a mild paste cleaner. A well
moistened soap impregnated steel wool 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 well clean, to avoid difficult lighting,
and check that the burner crown holes are not obstructed.
