Ecology

Safeguarding the balance of nature is a requirement of every consumer sensitive to environmental issues. How many trees have already been felled in the name of kitchen or living room furniture? Keep this in mind when you choose a unit. Respecting nature today means finding alternative solutions that allow us to enjoy the benefits deriving from it, without damaging it. The ECOLOGICAL PANEL is exclusively made of recycled wood, using a production process respectful of the environment because no trees have to be felled. The ECOLOGICAL PANEL merges the highest standards of: - SOLIDITY - COMPACTNESS - INDEFORMABILITY - DURABILITY It is a totally new quality. An ecological quality that furnishes your home respectful of both your need for functionality and your need to live in complete harmony with nature.

Sinks

It is unadvisable to use abrasive scourers, since they might scratch the surfaces.

Hobs

Wash the gas rings frequently, carefully removing any incrustations. With hobs that have automatic lighting and a safety device, thoroughly clean the thermocouple spark plugs. Check that the gas ring outlet holes are not obstructed.

Ovens

Electrical oven: for constant and uniform temperature. Gas oven: for faster heating. It can reach cooking temperatures around 250° - 270°. Microwave oven: for considerably reduced consumption compared to traditional ovens, as it cooks rapidly and uniformly not requiring preheating. Do not open the oven during preheating in order not to disperse the heat. Switch off the oven before the end of cooking – the food will continue cooking all the same. Do not use metal receptacles in microwave ovens but only ceramic glass, porcelain, etc. which the waves can penetrate.

Dishwasher

Use the dishwasher with a full load, if possible, to make best use of the basket versatility. Use the intensive cycle only when really necessary or when the dishes are particularly dirty. Use the fast cycle or the economy program when you have only a few dishes to wash or they are not very dirty. Do not use more detergent than recommended by the manufacturers: you don't wash better, but pollute more. If the dishwasher is not used for long periods, disconnect the water and electrical connections, drain out the residual water and leave the door ajar. From time to time, do a washing cycle with the dishwasher empty using degreasing powder instead of detergent to prevent scale from forming in the drum.

Refrigerators

If the fridge is not used for long periods: defrost it, empty it out, clean it, pull out the plug, and leave the door ajar. Check that the rubber door seals are always in a good state, so that the fridge is always properly closed. If they are worn or detached, replace them. Defrost the freezer as soon as an excessive layer of ice forms. The ice acts as insulator and does not allow regular exchange of cold air in the freezer.

Washing Machine

If the washing machine is not to be used for a long time, disconnect the water and electrical connections. Keep the door ajar to prevent nasty smells.

Hoods

Use and extractor hood connected directly to the outside with a dedicated flue. Do not connect the hood to a flue that already hosts other boiler flues or stacks. Change the throwaway synthetic-fibre anti-grease filters about every two months.

Do not leave positioning of the electrical appliances to chance, but plan it in a rational manner in order to obtain the best operating conditions and practicality of use.It is unadvisable to place a refrigerator or a fridge-freezer near a heat source such as an oven, hob or radiator.Periodically check the state of the electrical system and, in particular, the efficiency of the ground connection.Do not service the electrical appliances without first having pulled out the plug or turned off the power.Do not switch on and touch the electrical appliances if you are barefoot and the floor is wet.We recommend you not to use adapters and multiple sockets: the plug of the appliance must be the only one in the socket to prevent overheating and short-circuits. CAUTION: For all the electrical appliances, strictly follow the instructions given by the manufacturers in the manuals accompanying the appliance.

Fridge Column

For the fridge column to function properly it requires continuous ventilation. This is assured by a special perforated plastic base that allows air to flow in underneath the unit door and out from the top part. For this reason, do not place anything on top of or underneath the fridge column. It is unadvisable to place the refrigerator near a heat source, such as an oven, hob or radiator.

Hinges

The hinges support the door and allow opening it. If the doors are misaligned, they can be adjusted in height, depth and width. The door can be taken off completely by releasing the hinge from the plate.

Hoods

The hood's function is to extract the vapours formed during cooking. It is important to use an extractor hood connected directly to the outside with a dedicated flue. Do not connect the hood to a flue that already hosts other boiler flues or stacks. Change the throwaway synthetic-fibre anti-grease filters about every two months, while the metal anti-grease filters must be washed in the dishwasher every two months.

Wall unit attachment

Used to attach and support the wall unit on its holding bar and allows adjusting the wall unit in height and depth by means of the screws found under a plastic screw cap.

Shelf

A series of holes has been made in the sides of the unit, so that the shelf can be positioned at the desired height.

Worktop

Check:
- that the protective sheath provided is properly fitted along the perimeter of the openings for the built-in electrical appliances or sinks. - that silicone is applied in the worktop joints before final joining.

Splashback

Check that it is well up against the wall and the worktop, and apply silicone (if necessary).

Feet and Plinths

To allow working underneath the units, the plinth is attached to the feet by means of plastic snap-hooks so that the plinth can simply be snapped on and off. These hooks can be positioned in correspondence to the feet thanks to a runner cut in the plinth. The base unit and column feet can be height-adjusted so that the units can be levelled if the floor is not perfectly even. To adjust simply turn the threaded base of the feet.

Doors

Wood and lacquered doors: do not use detergents: just use a slightly moist cloth. Laminates: use a slightly moist cloth or detergents for washable surfaces.

Worktops

Marbles and granites: are very delicate because they are porous. The minute you spill something, clean it off immediately. To remove the most common stains (coffee, tea or fruit), rub with a liquid paste of sodium bicarbonate and water; leave to act and then clean with a wet sponge. To polish these tops you can use floor wax diluted in water. Laminates: use a wet sponge and cloths. Grease marks can be removed with a normal detergent for washable surfaces.

Sinks

Stainless steel sinks: clean the surfaces with a sponge moistened in lukewarm acid or polishing paste. Synthetic, enamelled and ceramic sinks: use a normal washing-up liquid.

Hobs

Wash the stainless steel parts with water and dry with a soft clean cloth or wash-leather; Grease the electrical plates with a soft cloth with a little oil when they are still warm; Wash the enamelled parts and the grilles with water and washing-up liquid. Do not use abrasive powders.

Ovebs

Clean the oven when it is still warm using hot water and detergent. Dry thoroughly. We recommend you frequently clean the oven. Some models have self-cleaning panels which make cleaning easy, or are fitted as standard with pyrolitic cleaning.

Dishwasher

Use special dishwasher salt or coarse kitchen salt to prevent scale. Always check that the salt container is full. Add salt every 10 washing cycles, or when the warning light comes on. Remember to periodically thoroughly clean the filter and the impellers. Impurities and deposits block regular water downflow.

Refrigerators

Clean the inside with lukewarm water and bicarbonate. To remove any lingering smells, leave a bowl of lukewarm milk in the fridge for a few hours. Clean off the layer of dust that forms on the coil at the rear of the fridge.

Washing Machine

Frequently clean the filter removing any coins, buttons or threads, which in the long term may obstruct the water drain pipe. Keep the drum clean to prevent the formation of incrustations. Use descaling products together with the detergent to prevent the formation of scale deposits and reduce maintenance operations.

Hoods

Wash the metal anti-grease filter in the dishwasher every two months.
