How does the crockery warmer work

This appliance is equipped with a warm air circulation system. A fan distributes the heat generated by an electrical heating element throughout the interior of the appliance.The thermostat allows the user to define and control the temperature wanted for the crockery.The circulating hot air that is generated heats up the crockery quickly and evenly. A metal grille protects both the heating element and the fan. The base of the drawer is fitted with a non-slip mat to prevent plates and dishes from sliding around when the drawer is opened and closed.


Before using it for the first time

Before using the appliance for the first time you should clean the interior and the exterior, following the cleaning instructions given in the section “Cleaning and Maintenance”.Then heat the crockery warmer for at least 2 hours. For this, turn the temperature control to the maximum position (see section ‘Selecting temperature”).Make sure the kitchen is well-ventilated when you are doing this.The appliance’s parts are protected by a special product. For this reason, during the first heating, an odor will be released. Both the odor and any smoke that may form will disappear after a short time and neither signifies that there is anything wrong with the connection or the appliance.

Control Panel

Using the crockery warmer

To use the crockery warmer, proceed as follows:

  • Put the crockery in the drawer.
  • Select the function you want by turning the thermostat control to the desired position.
  • Switch on the appliance by pressing the switch, which will light up.
  • Close the drawer.Be careful not to use too much force when closing the drawer since it may open up again. Before taking out the warm crockery you must switch off the crockery warmer by pressing the switch again
Selecting function

By turning the thermostat control you can select temperatures between 30 and 80 °C.Do not force the thermostat control to the left of the “0” position or to the right of the maximum position since this may damage the appliance.As soon as the selected temperature is reached, the heating is turned off. When the temperature drops to a value below the one selected, the heating is turned back on.The temperature scale is marked with absolute temperatures in ºC and also has symbols that correspond to the optimum temperatures for groups of crockery:

Symbol ºC  Function 
30ºC Defrosting
40ºC Proving dough Cups/glasses warming
60ºC Crockery warming Keep food warm
80ºC Food WarmingLow-temperature cooking (only available with the model KD92903E)
Heating times

Various factors affect heating times:

  • Material and thickness of the crockery;
  • Load quantity;
  • How the crockery is arranged;
  • Temperature setting.It is therefore not possible to give any precise heating times.As you use the crockery warmer more and more you will learn the best settings for your crockery.

Cleaning is the only maintenance action that is required normally.Warning! Cleaning must be done with the crockery warmer disconnected from the electrical power supply. Remove the plug from the power socket or disconnect the crockery warmer power supply circuit. Do not use aggressive or abrasive cleaning products, abrasive sponges, or pointed objects since stains or abrasion marks may appear.Do not use high-pressure or steam jet cleaning appliances.Appliance front and control panelThe crockery warmer can be cleaned using just a damp cloth. If it is very dirty, add a few drops of washing-up liquid to the washing water.Wipe the surfaces dry using a dry cloth. For stainless steel fronted crockery warmers, special products for the treatment of stainless steel surfaces can be used.These products prevent the surfaces from becoming dirty again for some time. Apply a thin layer of such a product on the surface using a soft cloth On aluminum fronted crockery warmers use a gentle glass cleaning product and a soft cloth that does not release fluff. Wipe horizontally without pressing on the surface since aluminum is sensitive to scratches and cuts.

Interior of the crockery warmer

Clean the inside of the crockery warmer regularly using a damp cloth.If it is very dirty add a few drops of washing-up liquid to the washing water. Wipe the surfaces dry using a dry cloth. Avoid water entering through the air circulation opening. Only use the crockery warmer again when it is completely dry.

Mat with a non-slip surface

The non-slip surface mat can be removed to facilitate the cleaning of the drawer.The mat can be cleaned by hand using hot water with a few drops of washing-up liquid. Dry thoroughly.The non-slip mat should only be replaced when it is completely dry.


WARNING! Any type of repair must only be done by a specialized technician. Any repair done by a person not authorized by the manufacturer is dangerous.Before contacting Technical Assistance, check on the following:

  • The crockery doesn’t heat up enough. Check whether:-The appliance has been switched on.-The appropriate temperature has been selected.-The air circulation orifices are covered by the crockery.-The crockery was left to heat up for sufficient time.
  •  Heating time depends on several factors, such as, for example:-Crockery material type and thickness.-Quantity of crockery.-How the crockery is arranged.
  • The crockery doesn’t heat up at all.Check whether:-You can hear the noise of a fan. If the fan is operating then the heating element is broken; if the fan is not operating then the fan is broken.-The switchboard fuses/circuit breakers have fused/tripped out.
  • The crockery is heating up too much:-The temperature selector is broken.
  • The on/off switch does not light up:-The switch’s pilot light has blown.


Recycle the materials with the Symbol. Put the packaging in applicable containers to recycle it. Help protect the environment and human health and to recycle waste of electrical and electronic appliances.Do not dispose of appliances marked with the symbol with the household waste.

Before installation

Check that the input voltage indicated on the characteristics plate is the same as the voltage of the power outlet you are going to use.Open the drawer and take out all the accessories and remove the packing material.Attention! The front surface of the crockery heater may be wrapped in a protective film. Before using the crockery warmer for the first time, remove this film carefully.Make sure that the crockery warmer is not damaged in any way. Check that the drawer opens and closes correctly. If you find any damage, contact the Technical Assistance Service.Attention: the power socket should be easily accessible after the crockery warmer has been installed.The crockery warmer should only be builtin in combination with those appliances indicated by the manufacturer. If it is fitted in combination with other appliances, the guarantee is no longer valid since it is impossible to guarantee that the crockery warmer will work correctly.


To build in the crockery warmer in combination with another appliance there must be a fixed, interim shelf in the housing unit to support the weight of both appliances.The appliance to be combined with the crockery warmer will be placed directly on the latter without any need to have a separating shelf.To build in the appliance which is combined with the crockery warmer, follow the instructions set out in the respective instructions and fitting booklet. The relevant installation dimensions are indicated in mm in the diagrams shown at the end of this booklet. Proceed as follows:

  1. Place the crockery warmer on the shelf and slide it towards the interior of the niche in such a way that it is centred and completely lined up with the front of the unit.
  2. Check that the crockery warmer’s frame is properly leveled and is sitting evenly on the shelf.
  3. Open the drawer and fix the crockery warmer to the sides of the unit using the provided screws.

Electrical Connection

The electrical installation must be performed by an electrician qualified in accordance with the legislation in force.Before connecting the crockery warmer to the electric mains, check that the voltage and frequency of the mains match that which is shown on the rating plate located in the heating block inside.The electric connection is made via an omnipolar switch, which is suitable for the intensity to be tolerated and which has a minimum gap of 3mm between its contacts, which will ensure disconnection in case of emergency or when cleaning the crockery warmer.If a plug is used for the electric connection, then it must be accessible after installation.The connection should include correct earthing, in compliance with current norms.WARNING: THE CROCKERY WARMER MUST BE EARTHED.If the flexible supply cable fitted to the crockery warmer ever needs to be changed, it should be replaced by an official After Sales Service, because it requires special tools.The manufacturer and retailers do not accept responsibility for any damage that may be caused to people, animals, or property if these installation instructions are not observed.
