WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS OR IF THERE ARE

FAULTS IN THE GAS INSTALLATION

  • Immediately shut off the gas supply or close the gas cylinder valve.
  • Immediately extinguish all naked flames and cigarettes.
  • Do not operate any light switches or appliance switches.
  • Do not pull any plugs out of any sockets.
  • Do not use any telephones or mobile phones within the building.
  • Open windows and ventilate the room.
  • Call the after sales service or the gas supplier. Escaping gas may cause an explosion. Small amounts of gas can collect over a longer period of time and ignite.
  • Close the safety valve for the gas supply when the appliance is out of use for prolonged periods. Escaping gas may cause an explosion. If the liquefied gas bottle is not upright, liquefied propane/butane can enter the appliance.
  • Intense darting flames may therefore escape from the burners. Components may become damaged and start to leak over time so that gas escapes uncontrollably.
  • Always use liquefied gas bottles in an upright position.

WARNING ‒ Risk of suffocation!

  • Using the gas cooking appliance leads to a build-up of heat, moisture and combustion products in the room where the appliance is installed.
  • Ensure that the kitchen is sufficiently ventilated, in particular when operating the gas cooking appliance.
  • If the appliance is used intensively and for prolonged periods, ensure that there is additional ventilation so that the combustion products are safely fed to the outside, e.g. if using existing ventilation equipment, set a higher performance level and, at the same time, ensure that the air is replaced with fresh air in the room where the appliance is installed.
  • Consult specialist personnel when installing additional ventilation equipment.

WARNING ‒ Risk of fire!

  • Leaving fat or oil cooking on an unattended hob can be dangerous and may lead to fires.
  • Never leave hot oil or fat unattended.

Environmental protection and saving energy

  • Saving energy
    • If you follow these instructions, your appliance will use less energy.
    • Choose a burner roughly the same size as your pan.
    • Centre the cookware on the hob.

Tip: Cookware manufacturers often give the upper diameter of the saucepan.

  • It is often larger than the base diameter.
  • Unsuitable cookware or incompletely covered cooking zones consume a lot of energy.
  • Cover saucepans with suitable lids. ¡
  • Cooking without a lid consumes considerably more energy.
  • Lift lids as infrequently as possible. ¡
  • When you lift the lid, a lot of energy escapes. Use a glass lid.
  • You can see into the pan through a glass lid without having to lift it.
  • Use cookware that is suitable for the quantity of food.
  • Large items of cookware containing little food need more energy to heat up.
  • Cook with only a little water. ¡
  • The more water that is contained in the cookware, the more energy is required to heat it up.
  • Turn down to a lower power level early on.
  • If you use an ongoing power level that is too high, you will waste energy.
