The Broil Button “for all my fellow UK Guest’s” means grill. While you are Broiling please use the extractor fan at all times as the smoke alarms are very sensitive and very loud.
The oven is also different to a UK oven, it is controlled by the panel above the hob, first you need to set the required temperature, then press On / Start. Should you need to change the temperature you MUST first stop the oven, then change the temperature then press start again!!!.
It is also NORMAL to hear the oven light and re-light during the cooking process.
Please do not scrub at the oven base as it has an oven clean facility, if you wish to prevent any spills please use foil and partially cover the lowest shelf.
This is a basic appliance and is straight forward to use, please help us by wiping clean after each use.
Ice Maker :
To make ice simply open the freezer door and push down the metal bar inside, above the Ice Tray, make sure the tray is under the ice maker. If you have too much ice you can lift the metal bar to stop the ice maker.
Please keep the fridge clean and wipe away any spillages as soon as possible. When departing please take all items with you that you wish to keep and throw away open and unwanted items.
Please be aware the iron can be very hot, please check you have the right temperature first.
