    electronic equipment applicable throughout the European union.
    The identification plate with technical data, serial number and brand name is located in an
    exposed position either in the drawer (where present) or on the back of the appliance. A

    2. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
    Consult the installation instructions for safety standards on electrical or gas appliances
    and for ventilation functions. In your interests and for your safety the law requires that the
    installation and servicing of all electrical and gas appliances be carried out by qualified
    personnel in accordance with the standards in force. Our approved installers guarantee a
    satisfactory job.
    Gas or electrical appliances must always be uninstalled by suitably skilled people.
    Before connecting the appliance to the power grid, check the data on the plate against the
    data for the grid itself.
    If the appliance is installed on a raised platform, secure it using suitable fastening
    systems.
    Before carrying out installation/maintenance work, make sure that the appliance is
    disconnected from the power grid.
    If cooking appliances are installed in motor vehicles (for example, camper vans, caravans
    etc.), they must only be used when the vehicle is stationary.
    Install the appliance so that when opening the drawers or doors of units positioned at the
    level of the hob there is no possibility of making contact with pans positioned on top of it.
    The plug to be connected to the power supply cable and its socket must be of the same
    type and conform to the standards in force. The socket must be accessible after the
    appliance has been installed.
    Never disconnect the plug by pulling on the cable.
    If the power supply cable is damaged, contact the technical assistance centre immediately
    and they will replace it.
    The appliance must be connected to earth in compliance with electrical system safety
    standards.
    During use the appliance and its accessible parts become very hot. Take care never to
    touch the heating elements. Keep children younger than 8 away from the appliance,
    unless under continuous supervision.
    Never put inflammable objects in the oven: they could be accidentally ignited and cause
    fires.

    it.
    This appliance may be used by children from the age of 8 and by people of reduced
    physical and mental ability or lacking in experience and knowledge, provided they are
    supervised or instructed on the safe use of the appliance and if they understand the
    associated risks. Do not allow children to play with the appliance. Do not allow
    unsupervised children to perform cleaning or maintenance operations.

    Be aware of how rapidly the cooking zones heat up. Do not place empty saucepans on the
    heat. Danger of overheating.
    Fats and oils can catch fire if they overheat. You are therefore recommended not to leave
    the appliance unattended while preparing foods containing oils or fats. If fats or oils catch
    fire, never put water on them. Place the lid on the saucepan and turn off the cooking zone.
    Take care when using additional electrical appliances in the kitchen (e.g. blender, toaster
    etc.). Connection cables must not come into contact with hot cooking zones.
    Do not use steam jets for cleaning the appliance. 
    The steam could reach the electronics, damaging them and causing short-circuits.

    not use spray products while the appliance is still hot. The gases contained in spray cans
    may catch fire.

    3. ENVIRONMENTAL CARE
    3.1 Our environmental care
    Pursuant to Directives 2002/95/EC, 2002/96/EC and 2003/108/EC relating to
    the reduction of the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic
    appliances, as well as to the disposal of refuse, the crossed out bin symbol on
    the appliance indicates that the product, at the end of its working life, must be
    collected separately from other refuse. Therefore, the user must consign the
    product that has reached the end of its working life to the appropriate selective
    collection centres for electrical and electronic refuse, or deliver it back to the
    retailer when purchasing an equivalent product, on a one for one basis.
    Adequate selective collection for the subsequent forwarding of the
    decommissioned product to recycling, treatment and ecologically compatible
    disposal contributes to avoiding possible negative effects on the environment
    and on health and promotes the recycling of the materials of which the
    appliance consists. Illicit disposal of the product by the user will lead to the
    application of administrative sanctions.
    The product does not contain substances in quantities sufficient to be
    considered hazardous to health and the environment, in accordance with
    current European directives.
    3.2 Your environmental care
    Our products packaging is made of non-polluting materials, therefore
    compatible with the environment and recyclable. Please help by disposing of the
    packaging correctly. You can obtain the addresses of collection, recycling and
    disposal centres from your retailer or from the competent local organisations.
    Do not discard the packaging or any part of it, or leave it unattended. It can
    constitute a suffocation hazard for children, especially the plastic bags.
    Your old appliance also needs to be disposed of correctly.
    Important: hand over your appliance to the local agency authorised for the
    collection of electrical appliances no longer in use. Correct disposal enables
    intelligent recovery of valuable materials.
    Before disposing of your appliance it is important to remove doors and leave
    shelves in the same position as for use, to ensure that children cannot
    accidentally become trapped inside during play. It is also necessary to cut the
    connecting cable to the power grid, removing it along with the plug.
