Safety and warnings 3

WARNING!

Hot Surface Hazard

This appliance becomes hot during use.

Do not touch the cooktop components, burners, trivets/pan supports or the stainless steel base when hot.

Before cleaning, turn the burners off and make sure the whole cooktop is cool.

Failure to do so could result in burns and scalds.

WARNING!

Explosion Hazard

Do not store flammable materials such as gasoline near the cooktop.

Do not spray aerosols near the cooktop during use.

Failure to do so may result in death or electrical shock.

Important safety precautions

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.

This appliance should be connected to a circuit that incorporates an isolating switch providing full disconnection from the electricity supply.

Do not stand or place heavy objects on this appliance.

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 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.

Do not use a steam cleaner for cleaning this cooktop.

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. Ensure that the electrical connection plug is accessible after installation.

Where this gas cooktop is installed in marine craft or in a caravan, it shall not be used as a space heater.

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.

4 Using your cooktop

Lighting the cooktop

1 Choose the control knob for the burner you want to use.

2Press the knob down gently and turn it anticlockwise to the High position. The electrodes on all the burners will spark.

Flame failure models only: Hold down the knob for approximately five seconds after the burner has lit. Releasing the knob too soon will extinguish the flame.

3Adjust the flame anywhere between the High and Low positions. Do not adjust the flame between High and Off O.

Note:

If the burner does not light within 15 seconds, turn the control knob off and wait at least one minute before trying again.

If the cooktop does not light

If the cooktop does not light, check that:

The cooktop is plugged in and the electricity is switched on.

The gas is turned on.

The electrodes are sparking.

If the electrodes are not sparking, they may be dirty or wet. Clean them with a toothbrush and methylated spirits, as shown in Fig. 6.

Electricity failure

If there is an electricity failure, you can still use your cooktop. Light the burners by holding a match close to the side of the burner and turning the control knob to the High position. Wait until the flame is burning evenly before adjusting.

Flame failure safety feature (some models only)

Some cooktop models have a flame failure probe (see Fig. 6).

This safety feature cuts off the gas supply to the burner if the flame is blown out.

When lighting the burner on flame failure models, hold down the knob for approximately five seconds after the burner has lit. Releasing the knob too soon will extinguish the flame.

If the flames are accidentally extinguished, turn off the burner and do not try to light it again for at least one minute (to allow the gas to disperse).

6 Using your cooktop

General guidelines

To get the best out of your cooktop, follow these simple suggestions:

Use saucepans with thick flat bottoms. Food in a saucepan with an uneven bottom will take longer to cook.

Fig.10 Efficient and inefficient saucepan bottoms

Do not let large saucepans or frying pans overlap the bench as this can deflect heat onto your benchtop and damage the surface.

Always make sure saucepans are stable. Using very heavy saucepans may bend the trivet/pan support or deflect the flame.

When you need to boil, simmer or fry food, first set the temperature to the High position. Once the food is boiling, reduce the temperature to maintain a steady heat to cook your food thoroughly. Doing this will reduce the cooking time.

For auxillary and semi-rapidburners, pans should be 12 cm (5 in.) or larger in diameter. For rapid burners, pans should be18-26cm(7-10in.) in diameter.

The fish burner is designed to be used with a ‘fish kettle’ or griddle approximately 40 cm (16 in.) long.

A fish kettle used on the fish burner is also useful for steaming long vegetables like corn cobs, Chinese broccoli, long beans, and asparagus.

Using a wok

Use your wok only on the wok burner. The trivet/pan support is shaped to take a traditional wok with a round base.

You can also use a wok stand. Make sure the stand fits securely on the four fingers of the trivet/ pan support, and is stable.

Do not use a wok larger than 45 cm (18 in.)

The wok burner is designed to be used with a wok but may be used with pans 18-26cm(7-10in.) in diameter, with care.

Fig.11 Only use the SimmerMat on the Auxilliary burner
Fig.12 Only use the griddle on the Fish burner

Using your cooktop 7

Using a SimmerMat (if supplied)

A SimmerMat helps control the temperature of the cooking surface for gentle cooking or the long slow simmering that is needed for some foods. Use at low heat only.

To simmer

First bring the food to the boil over high heat. Then turn the burner off and carefully place the SimmerMat over the burner on the trivet/pan support, with the points facing upward. Re-lightthe burner, turn to Low and place your saucepan on top of the SimmerMat.

Using a griddle (if supplied)

Cooking with a griddle

A griddle is ideal for cooking a variety of foods. The surfaces of a cast-irongriddle will become more and morenon-stickas cooking oils become baked in. This ‘seasoning’ process can be started by coating both surfaces of the griddle with cooking oil and baking in the oven at 150OC (300OF) for about an hour.

Heat the griddle for a few minutes before using. Brush the food, not the griddle, with oil, to reduce splatter and smoking.

Cook steak and vegetables at high temperatures on the ribbed side of the griddle. Turn the steak only once, about halfway through the cooking time. To test, press the surface of the steak. The softer the meat is, the ‘rarer’ or less well done it will be.

Griddle scones, pancakes, pikelets, polenta and eggs are best cooked slowly at medium to low temperatures on the flat side of the griddle.

Important!

Prolonged cooking with the griddle at high temperatures may damage the cooktop.

Cleaning a cast-irongriddle

Leave the griddle to cool before cleaning. Scrape away any food residue and wash in warm soapy water.

Do not scour to the bare metal when cleaning the griddle or you will remove the non-stickcoating that has built up during cooking.

Dry the griddle thoroughly and wipe with a thin coating of cooking oil to prevent rust forming, especially when the griddle is new.

8 Care and cleaning

General cleaning advice

Clean the cooktop regularly – do not let stains become burnt on.

Use soapy water and a soft sponge or cloth (use the mildest cleaner that will do the job). Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel soap pads or sharp objects on stainless steel.

Soak stains under a soapy cloth.

Clean brushed stainless steel in the direction of the grain.

Rinse with clean water to ensure no cleaner residue is left (when heated this can stain the cooktop).

Dry thoroughly to avoid leaving water marks. For extra shine on stainless steel, use a stainless steel polish.

You can wash trivets/pan supports in the dishwasher.

Clean the burner parts in hot soapy water. Make sure you keep the holes and slots clear. Thoroughly dry the burner parts. The flames will be irregular if the burner ring is not completely dry.

Clean electrodes with a toothbrush and methylated spirits. Do not clean cooktop parts in a self-cleaningoven.

Do not use a steam cleaner.

After cleaning, replace the parts correctly on the cooktop, as shown in Fig. 13. When replacing the burner rings, turn the rings until the positioning teeth are placed correctly.

For stubborn stains, see the ‘Cleaning chart’.
