Your standard at home Elfin Kitchen hobs are fitted with a 30 minute safety cut-out timer. In order to switch the hotplates on the timer must be turned in a clockwise direction to a maximum of 30 minutes. This allows the electrical supply to the hob.
After the selected time has expired the electric supply will be isolated and the hotplates cool down. To extend the cooking time simply re-set the timer.
After the power has cut-out please be aware the cooking plates will still be hot!
