Plancha - gas connection

How do I take the regulator of my gas cylinder into operation?

The regulator is clipped on the golden end of the gas cylinder. You will then hear a "click" when the regulator is clipped.

In order to open the gas bottle, you have to perform:2 operations:

  1. Open the gas supply tap

  2. Defuse the safety of the regulator (by pressing a button on the side usually)

You can also refer to the operating manual of your gas cylinder because each type of regulator engages differently.


Which gas hose should I use?

For your Verycook plancha, you will have to use a gas pipe, designed for Butane or Propane gas, with a G1/2-G1/4 type screw-on end.

This gas hose can be either a rubber hose (10 years service life) or a braided stainless steel hose (lifetime warranty).


Which gas can I use for the Verycook Plancha?

Your Verycook Plancha works with butane or propane gas. However, we recommend propane gas, which does not freeze in winter.

Verycook Planchas are designed for the use with both butane gas and propane gas.

Be careful, do not connect your plancha with city gas.


How do I know if there is still gas in my bottle?

Ahhh the eternal question: how do I know if there is still enough gas in my bottle?

Simple and effective technique: If there is no indication on your gas bottle, you can pour a cup of boiling water on the outside wall of your gas bottle. Condensation then forms up to the edge, until where the bottle is still filled.

Now you have your answer :)


Is the regulator supplied with the gas cylinder?

Yes, most gas bottle manufacturers supply the regulator that fits to their bottle.


Which gas bottle do I choose?

Use butane or propane gas, knowing that propane has the advantage of not freezing in winter. Never use city gas or any other gas. You can alternate butane and propane gas without a modification of the device.

The gas cylinders range from 5 to 13 kg. You can get your gas bottle at most supermarkets and gas stations.


How do I connect my plancha to the gas bottle?

To connect your Verycook plancha you must have a gas hose, the butane or propane gas bottle and its regulator.

The silver/golfen end of the gas hose should be screwed to the left rear of your plancha. Securely tighten with pliers.

The other end of the gas hose must be screwed to the regulator of the gas cylinder. Securely tighten with pliers.

The regulator must then be clipped onto the end of the gas bottle. You will then hear a "click" when the regulator is clipped on.

In order to open the gas bottle, you have to perform 2 operations:

  1. Open the gas supply tap.
  2. Defuse the safety of the regulator (by pressing a button on the side usually).

The gas bottle is then in use.

You are ready to start your plancha! :)
