  • Before cleaning, turn the cooker off and make sure it is cool.
  • Failure to follow this advice could result in burns and scalds.
  • Isolating switch: make sure this cooker is connected to a circuit which incorporates an isolating switch providing full disconnection from the power supply.
  • Household appliances are not intended to be played with by children.
  • Children, or persons with a disability which limits their ability to use the appliance, should have a responsible person to instruct them in its use. The instructor should be satisfied that they can use the appliance without danger to themselves or their surroundings.
  • Safe food handling: leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible before and after cooking. This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause food poisoning. Take particular care during warmer weather.
  • Do not place aluminium foil, dishes, trays, water or ice on the oven floor during cooking as this will irreversibly damage the enamel.
  • Do not line the walls with aluminium foil.
  • Do not stand on the doors, or place heavy objects on it.

  • Do not place aluminium foil or plastic dishes on the cooktop burners.
  • Do not let large saucepans or frying pans overlap the bench as this can deflect heat onto your benchtop and damage the surface.
  • Do not let large saucepans, frying pans or woks push any other pans aside. This could make them unstable or deflect heat onto your benchtop and damage the surface.
  • Saucepan handles may be hot to touch. Ensure saucepan handles do not overhang other gas burners that are on. Keep handles out of reach of children.
