SOME USEFUL TIPS

When pouring boiling water into the sink, to prevent condensed steam from being deposited in the draining unit, it is sufficient to open the doos. It is also important to turn on the cold water tap too, so that only lukewarm water runs down the drain; this can avoid expansion of the pipes which causes leaks.Finnally containers of acid substances, if left open, can damage the steel of the sink. When cooking on the hob, switch on the extractor hood which conveys all the humid and greasy vapours towards the special filters provided, protecting nearby furniture.
