BALCONY SKYLIGHT

OVEN/MICROWAVE

microwave: place the glass plate on the bottom, remove the baking plates

oven: remove the glass plate from the oven

SAUNA

Before using the sauna:

1: Put the left knob (temperature) vertically down

2: Put the right button on the high 2 (unfilled line) in this way the sauna will start working immediately and switch off automatically after 2 hours.


IMPORTANT:

stir the prepared sauna water before use so that the oil mixes well with the water

Open the ventilation grille

Use the provided pouring water, never pour any oil directly on the stones!

Always use a towel on the benches


Due to the small size of the sauna oven, water must be poured in small quantities and only when the stones are sufficiently warm, otherwise the fuses will blow. these can be put back up in the hatch under the kitchen worktop.
