Using the burners

To ignite a burner, proceed as follows:

Press in and turn the relative knob anti-clockwiseuntil the pointer is on thehigh-flamesymbol;

press the knob down fully and activate the automatic gas ignition ;

keep the knob pressed down for about 10 seconds with the flame lit to allow the safety thermocouple to be heated;

release the knob, checking that the flame is stable. If it is not, repeat the operation.

For minimum power, turn the knob towards the low flame symbol. Intermediate positions are possible by simply putting the knob anywhere between the high and the low flame symbol.

To turn off the burner, turn the knob clockwise to the off position "".

Adjusting the flame level

The flame level is adjusted by pressing the control knob and turning it anticlockwise to the following positions:

Black circle = off

full flame = on

small flame = reduced gas flow


Do not activate the automatic ignition device for more than 15 consecutive seconds.

Difficulty in ignition is sometimes due to air inside the gas duct.

If a burner flame accidentally goes out, the gas continues to exit for a few moments before the safety device activates. Turn the control knob to the off position and do not attempt ignition again for at least 1 minute, thereby letting the gas disperse, which could otherwise be a danger.

When the appliance is not in operation, check that the

knobs are in the off position "". The main gas supply cutoff cock should also be closed.

Using the burners

To obtain maximum efficiency from the burners, it is advisable to only use pans with a diameter suitable for the burner being used, so that the flame does not extend beyond the pan base (see following table).

When a liquid starts boiling, it is advisable to turn the flame down just enough to keep the liquid simmering.

The “separate double flame” burner

This burner consists of two concentric burners which can operate either together or separately.

Use of the double flame on the maximum setting gives a very high power which reduces cooking times with respect to conventional burners.

Moreover the double flame crown provides a more uniform distribution of heat on the bottom of the pan, when using both burners on minimum.

Pots and pans of all sizes can be used. In the case of the smaller pots and pans we recommend the use of only the internal burner.

There is a separate control knob for each of the “separate double flame” burners.

The knob marked by the symbol operates the external burner;

The knob marked by the symbol operates the internal burner.

To turn on one of the rings, press the relative knob in all the

way and turn it anti-clockwiseto the high setting. The burner is fitted with an electronic igniter that automatically starts when the knob is pressed in.

Since the burner is equipped with a safety device "F", after lighting the burner keep the knob pressed in for about 10 seconds to allow the device which keeps the flame lit automatically to heat up.

To turn off a burner, turn the knob clockwise until it stops (it should be on the “” setting).

To obtain the best results with the cooktop, several fundamental rules should be followed while cooking or preparing food. Use cookware with a flat bottom to make certain that the pot sets properly on the cooking area.


Note When there is no electricity supply, the burners can be lit with a match after turning the control knob to the flame position.

Comments from our cookery consultant

Your oven’s various cooking modes were devised in consultation with the Cannon cookery consultant. He is a professional chef and is an integral member of Cannon research and development team.

The cooking modes, temperatures and oven shelf levels reflect our expert’s own experience in the kitchen, and will allow you to achieve the best cooking results with a variety of dishes.


Take care not to touch the heating elements inside the oven during use, as they become very hot.

Do not place dishes or aluminium foil on the interior base of the oven, as you will cause permanent damage to the enamel surface.

Cooking modes

Cannon ovens use different techniques to produce, circulate and preserve heat. Your oven has 9 cooking modes, each adapted for a different type of cooking style. The symbols make it very easy to choose the function you require.


Baking for bread, buns and pizzas

Pastry cooking for tarts and quiches

Roasting for au gratin dishes, poultry and meat

Spit-roastingfor roasting on the spit.

Barbecue cooking for au gratin dishes and grilling meats.

Traditional for classic cooking

Forced air for cooking on several levels at once

Fish for cooking different types of fish



Care must be taken when defrosting food so that the outer parts, which defrost first, do not develop harmful bacteria. Food is generally defrosted in the refrigerator: this is known as slow defrosting.

You can halve the defrosting time by using the oven.

This is suitable for:

-foods to be eaten raw/uncooked (strawberries, etc.),

-foods to be cooked - i.e. a chicken will defrost in half the normal time.

Defrosted foods should be eaten soon after defrosting. Place food to be defrosted on a shelf at level 1.

Turn knob «M» to select the symbol.


When the food has defrosted, do not forget to turn


knob «M» to«0» to switch off the oven.


This mode is particularly suitable for pastries (preparations using baking powder). It helps prevent the dough drying out, and favours rising before the surface becomes golden and crusty, giving beautiful baking results.

We recommend that you preheat the oven. Place your preparation on a shelf at level 1.

1 - Turn knob «M» to select the symbol


2 - Select the temperature with knob


Recommended temperature: 160°C.



Wait until the oven has heated up and the indicator light has gone out before placing the dish in the




At the end of the cooking cycle, turn knob «M» to«0» to switch off the oven.
