Our quality control programme has identified that in certain circumstances the glass lid fitted to certain Parkinson Cowan gas cookers and one Electrolux gas cooker can fall from the upright position.

If that occurs there is a risk that pans placed on the hob could be knocked off causing the hot contents to spill and cause injury.

2. Close the lid when the hob is not in use
