Hob - Care and cleaning

Refer to Safety chapters.

General information

  • Clean the hob after each use.

  • Always use cookware with clean bottom.

  • Scratches or dark stains on the surface have no effect on how the hob operates.

  • Use a special cleaner applicable for the surface of the hob.

  • Wash stainless steel parts with water, and then dry them with a soft cloth.

Cleaning the hob

  • Remove immediately: melted plastic, plastic foil, and food with sugar. If not, the dirt can cause damage to the hob.

  • Remove when the hob is sufficiently cool: limescale rings, water rings, fat stains, shiny metallic discoloration. Clean the hob with a moist cloth and non-abrasive detergent. After cleaning, wipe the hob dry with a soft cloth.

  • To clean the enamelled parts, cap and crown, wash them with warm soapy water and dry them carefully before you put them back on.

Cleaning the spark plug

This feature is obtained through a ceramic ignition candle with a metal electrode. Keep these components well clean to prevent difficult lighting and check that the burner crown holes are not obstructed.

Pan supports

  2. After you clean the pan supports, make sure that they are in correct positions.
  3. For the burner to operate correctly, make sure that the arms of the pan supports are aligned with the centre of the burner.

Periodic maintenance

Speak to your local Authorised Service Centre periodically to check the conditions of the gas supply pipe and the pressure adjuster, if fitted.
