Never use steel wool, Never use chemical silver cleaners, Never use bleaches or detergents containing chlorine.
Do not leave rusty objects in contact with the sink. Rust can cause staining and permanent damage to the sink surface. To avoid staining of the sink surface, do not leave foods with corrosive properties such as vinegar, mustard, juices, salt etc on the sink
What is laser cut edge?

What is important when installing an oven?
Adequate ventilation must be allowed around the oven when it is installed. Fiori recommends that the ovens are installed on plinths to allow air to circulate underneath the oven.
Fiori recommends having a ventilation cut out underneath the oven and 100mm above the oven again to allow air to circulate.
Explain the operation of the safety cooling fan.
The safety cooling fan is controlled by a 75 degree thermostat. The fan assists the movement of air throughout the oven cavity and cupboard areas keeping them cool. It draws air from around and underneath the oven and forces it out through the top of the oven near the control panel.
The cooling fan keeps the ovens electrical components and cupboard materials below high temperatures. The Fiori cooling fan is designed to operate to remove latent heat from the oven cavity after the oven has been turned off. The safety cooling fan will continue to operate after the oven has been turned off, in some instances it can run for approximately 45 minutes after the oven has been turned off. Some manufacturers install a cooling fan to only operate when the oven is switched on.
Some customers may think that there oven is faulty as a fan is still operating after they have finished cooking but with the Fiori safety cooling fan this is normal to allow for the cooling of the whole oven cavity and surrounds. A point of note here is that we are all used to hearing the refrigerator turn on and off to keep the fridge at the right temperature, then given the temperature that an oven operates at then it is very logical that the safety cooling fan would need to operate for a period of time after cooking to cool the oven cavity.
How does the steam clean enamel work?
The steam clean enamel is much less porous then other enamels and creates a surface that has glass-like characteristics. This feature combined with a new component that is non-stick creates a surface that is easy to clean.
In order to clean the oven the customer has to place ½ litre of water in the baking tray, select the clean or fan-forced function and turn the oven to 90 degrees for 30 minutes. After this turn the oven off, allow the oven to cool and then wipe the inside of the oven with a damp cloth to remove all the stains. A small amount of dishwashing liquid can be added to the cloth for further efficiency.
Do I need to run the oven in?
It is advisable to run the new oven for approximately one hour when it is installed. This allows for the oils used in the manufacturing process to be burnt off. The best way to do this is to operate the oven on each function for approximately 5 minutes when installed.
What is the benefit of the 3-tier glass in the ovens?
Some Fiori ovens are fitted with a 3 tier glass door. This is where there are essentially 3 pieces of glass in the door. There are two inner layers of glass that are removable and can be cleaned. The internal oven glass is made of a reflective glass which reflects heat back into the oven.
The 3 tiers of glass results in a significant reduction in the outside door temperature.
Can I plug an oven into a normal power point?
Yes some ovens can be plugged into a normal powerpoint. Please check with your electrician prior to connection
Does the clock have to be set on the ovens before they can be operated?
What is Pyrolytic oven?
A pyrolytic oven is an oven that is heated to 500 degrees to clean the oven. At this temperature all the food residue and grease particles are incinerated and turn to ash. When the oven cools down then you still need to wipe the oven out.
At these temperatures special heat resistors need to be fitted to the oven cavity.
Fiori believes the steam clean enamel is a more energy efficient way to clean your oven.
Can I use foil on the bottom of my oven?
No you should not use foil on the bottom of your oven to collect spills and food residue. The foil will reflect the heat from the bottom element back into the floor of the oven which could result in damaging the enamel and the floor of the oven cavity.
Any damage caused by this activity is not covered by warranty.
Are light globes covered under warranty?
Moisture in the oven!
Some times customers may say that moisture is forming in the oven door. Condensation occurs when warm air comes into contact with a cold surface. Generally this occurs with an oven if the operator has not warmed the oven up before starting to cook. Thus if the operator pre heats the oven then this problem should not occur.
Another factor to consider is if the operator has been using water to cook ie steam their food.
Essentially the only way the moisture can occur is either that the operator has water in the food (ie frozen) or cooking with water or through the naturally occurring condensation.
What gas can be used for Fiori cooktops?
The gas cooktop comes set up for Natural gas operation. The cooktop can be easily converted for LPG operation. Each cooktop is equipped with a additional set of injectors with the operation manual. Either your plumber or gas fitter needs to change the injectors to operate on LPG.

Flame failure is where if the flame goes out then the gas will automatically cut out. Flame failure is fitted to the 75cm and 90cm gas hobs.
Why is the bottom of my cooking items (ie saucepans) going black.
This is generally caused where the customer is using LPG but have not converted their cooktop to LPG operation. Generally they will have a yellow tip on their blue flame.
What is a ceramic cooktop?
A ceramic cooktop is a cooktop made of tempered glass with heating elements located underneath the glass.
The ceramic cooktop is a fast, energy-efficient cooktop that has a continuos surface that has few or no dirt traps.
What is an induction cooktop?
An induction cooktop is where an electro-magnetic field is created by the heating elements that heat the contents inside the saucepan. Induction cooktops are the most efficient form of cooking and the safest.
To cook on an induction cooktop you will need to use cookware that has a magnetic base. The easiest way to test this is to place a magnet on the base of your cookware. If the magnet sticks then you are fine, if the magnet doesn’t stick then you will need new cookware.
How do I care for my ceramic cooktop?
The best way to care for your ceramic cooktop is to remove spills and leftovers as quickly as possible. You can buy ceramic cooktop cleaning from your local supermarket.
Do not pull your saucepans across the cooktop as their may be particles on the bottom of your saucepan and it over time scratch your cooktop.
I have a solid electric cooktop and it is going brown around the hotplates.
This will generally occur when the operator leaves their hotplates on hign for a long period of time. As the cooktop is made from stainless steel and there are various metals in the stainless steel then it will start to go brown when heat is applied for a long period of time as these various metals burn. If you have stainless steel cookware or BBQ plates then you will notice how these start to go brown after a period of time due to the heat that is being directly applied to the surface. The same applies to the cooktop where the edge of the stainless steel is directly against the heating element.
How does the timer work on the cooktops?
The timer on the touch control cooktops can be set to operate a heating element for a set period of time ie 10 minures to allow for easier cooking.
What is the child safety lock?
The child safety lock is a control mechanism on the touch control cooktops. In order to start the cooktop then you will need to hold your finger on the child safety lock for a period of 5 seconds. You will now be able to operate the cooktop.
If the cooktop is not used for a period of 30 seconds then the safety lock will switch on.
