Does my plancha have security?

On the gas griddle, there is a double safety:
- first safety at the plancha buttons
When the plancha buttons are in the closed position, gas cannot pass through the burners.

- second safety at the gas bottle and regulator
When the regulator is closed the gas cannot escape from the gas bottle.

Which gas should I choose to use my griddle safely?

Vivaplancha planks are compatible with all commercially available butane and propane gas cylinders.
We recommend however to use propane gas for Vivaplancha planchas. This will result in better flames.
In addition, the gas propane is more resistant to low temperatures than butane, which could freeze.

Is it dangerous to leave my plancha outside?

Vivaplancha planchas are made for outdoor use. It is therefore not dangerous to leave them outside. as new over the years, it is recommended to maintain it regularly and to protect it when it is not in use !
