This was a hard to find manual. When I did find it , some sites wanted way too much for the file.
Owner-manual .com had it for a really reasonable price. Not only that but it was sent very quickly and was a quality scanned document, unlike some others I purchased from a different site.
Good job guys!!
Last week I bought a second hand Panasonic AG-7500 SVHS Hi-Fi Video Cassette Recorder. It is a professional machine with many video and audio options. I feared it would be a huge quest to find a manual. I was delighted when I found owner-manuals.com. After payment I received the file to download the next day already. The quality is great. I am very happy. Thanks!
The owner's manual/operating instructions that I purchased was the original factory document and it was in at least three and maybe more languages. I no longer have it because I sold the tape recorder and included the owner's manual/operating instructions and a service/repair manual that I bought on ebay for the new owner.
This manual is very useful. Because pioneer sx-q180 is unhandy to use without manual.

The other hotplates
The hotplate controls can be turned both clockwise and anticlockwise. They have fixed settings, 1 to 6 (6 is the hottest). Turn the control to the setting you require: 0 No heat. 1 Simmer, gentle to medium heat. 2 Simmer, medium heat to hot. Frying, gentle heat. 3 Frying, gentle to medium heat. 4 Frying, medium heat to hot. 5 Frying, hot. 6 Boiling, very hot. 0 Retained heat. You can normally start cooking with the hotplate switched to maximum heat before turning it down to a lower heat.
Choosing suitable pans
To help you save both time and energy, the bases of saucepans and frying pans should: â¢ be at least as large as the hotplate. If the base is smaller than the hotplate, any spillages are quite likely to burn onto the hob. â¢ be flat. It takes longer to heat a pan with a base which curves in or outwards too much. When you are buying new pans, it is advisable to choose stainless steel ones with sandwich-type bases (i.e. layers of different metals).
â¢ Putting a lid on pans cuts the amount of energy used by half (compared to cooking without lids). â¢ Using pans with flat bases saves 25% energy (compared to uneven based pans). â¢ Make sure the hob is clean and dry. Dirt and moisture reduce heat transfer between pans and hotplates. â¢ Turn the hotplates off and finish cooking using the remaining heat. â¢ Save energy by steaming and pressure-cooking.
