Opening and filling
Flame approx. 10 mm: 5-6 seconds
Flame approx. 15 mm: 3-4 seconds
Flame approx. 20 mm: 2-3 seconds
Attention: Do not heat the pan any longer than indicated, otherwise the herbs will burn up!
Tip: herbs will vaporize more gently and more evenly if you heat them for briefer periods but more often.
If the copper pan is vastly overheated, this can result in a flaking of the gold plate. The vapman will nevertheless remain functional.
The process is finished when you can feel none of the active ingredients any more. Unscrew the middle section (7) and check the colour of the herbs. They should have been coloured brown. Tap out the contents and remove any residual herbs with a toothpick. (8) After each filling, give the filter a good rub on a piece of cloth or a paper towel.Tip: Clean the filter while it is still warm. This is the easiest way of removing any residue.
