Important safety instructions

  • Never leave the appliance unattended when in use. Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.
  • 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 of less than 8 years old must be kept away from the appliance unless continuously supervised. This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years and above, and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge, if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance in a safe way and they understand the hazards involved. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be done by children without supervision.
  • Do not store things children might want above the oven. Children could be burned or injured while climbing on the oven to retrieve items.
  • 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 door, or place heavy objects on it.
  • Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of the glass.
  • Do not use a steam cleaner to clean any part of the cooker.
  • Do not use an asbestos mat or decorative covers between the flame and the saucepan as this may cause serious damage to your cooktop.
  • Do not store flammable items in the oven or storage drawer.
  • 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.
  • If the electrical supply cord is damaged, it must only be replaced by an authorised person.
  • This cooker is not to be used as a space heater, especially if it is installed in marine craft or in a caravan.
  • The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure the kitchen is well ventilated. Keep natural ventilation holes open or install a mechanical ventilation device (mechanical extractor hood). Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for additional ventilation, for example opening of a window, or more effective ventilation, for example increasing the level of mechanical ventilation where present.
  • Never leave the appliance unattended when in use. Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.
  • Wear proper apparel. Do not wear loose fitting or hanging garments when using the appliance. They could ignite or melt if they touch an element or hot surface and you could be burned.
  • Always keep oven vents unobstructed.
  • Use only dry oven mitts or potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces could result in burns from steam. Do not let potholders touch hot areas or heating elements. Do not use a towel or a bulky cloth for a potholder. It could catch fire.

Hot air can blow from the vent at the top of the oven as part of the oven’s cooling system.

  • Placement of oven shelves: always position shelves in the desired location before preheating the oven. If a shelf must be removed while the oven is hot, do not let the oven mitts or potholder contact hot heating elements in the oven or the base of the oven.
