Before using the appliance
Rating plate
• This is situated on the lower front frame of the
appliance and can be seen upon opening the
door. Alternatively the rating plate may also be
found on the back or top of some models
(where applicable).
• The appliance must be protected by a suitably
rated fuse or circuit breaker.
• The rating of the appliance is given on the
rating plate.
• Do not remove the rating plate from the
appliance as this may invalidate the
guarantee.
Preparing to use your appliance
• Wipe over the base of the oven(s) with a soft
cloth using hot soapy water. Wash the furniture
before use.
• We suggest that you run the oven(s) and grill
for 10 – 15 minutes at maximum temperature,
to burn off any residue from their surfaces.
Accessible parts may become hotter than in
normal use. Children should be kept away.
During this period an odour may be emitted, it
is therefore advisable to open a window for
ventilation.
The cooling fan for the controls
• The cooling fan comes on immediately when
the grill/top oven is switched on and after a
short time when the main oven is in use. It may
run on after the controls are switched off until
the appliance has cooled.
• During the initial period the cooling fan may
turn on and off, this is quite normal.
6
WARNING!
Always allow the cooling fan to cool the
appliance down before switching off at the wall
prior to carrying out any cleaning or maintenance
work.
Control panel indicator neon(s)
• The indicator neon will operate when the grill
(where applicable) or oven(s) is switched on.
The indicator neon will glow. It may turn on
and off during use to show that the setting is
being maintained. If the neon does not operate
as the instructions indicate the controls have
been incorrectly set. Return all controls to zero
and reset following the instructions for the
required setting.
Condensation and steam
• When food is heated it produces steam similar
to a boiling kettle. The vents allow some of this
steam to escape. However, always stand back
from the appliance when opening the door(s) to
allow any build up of steam or heat to release.
• If the steam comes into contact with a cool
surface on the outside of the appliance, e.g. a
trim, it will condense and produce water
droplets. This is quite normal and is not
caused by a fault on the appliance.
• To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away
condensation and foodstuff from surfaces.
• For your safety wall coverings at the rear of the
appliance should be securely fixed to the wall.
Cookware
• Baking trays, dishes etc., should not be placed
directly against the grid covering the fan at the
back of the oven.
• Do not use baking trays larger than 30cm x
35cm (12” x 14”) as they will restrict the
circulation of heat and may affect performance.
Grill and oven furniture

please refer to the environmental chapter of this
manual.
Automatic cooking
It is advisable to leave food in the oven for as short a
time as possible before automatic cooking. Always
ensure commercially prepared food is well within its
use by date and that home prepared food is fresh and
of good quality.
12
When cooking is complete, do not leave food to stand
in the oven, but remove and cool it quickly if the food
is not to be consumed immediately. Always ensure
food in the oven has been covered before cooking if it
is not possible to remove food immediately after
cooking.
The hob
WARNING!
Do not use the appliance if the ceramic glass
is damaged. If a fault or crack becomes
visible, disconnect the appliance
immediately from the electricity supply and
contact your local service force centre.
The highest number represents the hottest
setting and the lowest number represents the
coolest setting. Choose a setting appropriate to
the quantity and type of food to be cooked.
Using the hob
For a single hob turn
the hob control knob
to the required setting.
For the dual hob turn
the hob control knob
to the full power
setting and then
reduce to the required
setting.
Recommended saucepans
• Some switching on and off when cooking at
high temperatures, e.g. deep fat frying is quite
normal, causes no damage to the hob and little
delay in cooking times.
• Excessive switching may however be caused
by the use of an unsuitable saucepan or a
saucepan which is smaller than the heated
area. If excessive switching occurs,
discontinue use of the saucepan.
• Only saucepans with flat bases and close fitting
lids are recommended. The saucepan base
should be approximately the same size as the
cooking area.
• Ensure that new saucepans are well scrubbed
to remove edges and take off any deposits left
from manufacture.
• Traditional round-bottomed Woks must not be
used even with a stand. Woks with flatbottomed bases are available and do comply
with the above recommendations.
IMPORTANT!
Occasionally the heated areas may be seen
to switch on and off when higher heat
settings are being used. This is due to a
safety device, which prevents the glass from
overheating.
Hints and tips when using the
hob
• Lift, rather than slide saucepans on and off the
hob. This will reduce the risk of scratches and
metal marks from saucepans with aluminium
bases. Metal marks can be easily cleaned off
providing they are not allowed to burn on.
•
Follow any guidelines provided by the
saucepan manufacturer, particularly those
relating to recommended heat settings.
13
•
•
•
•
•
Avoid using thin, badly dented or distorted
saucepans. Those with uneven bases should
not be used.
Hot hob indicator
Never leave the hotplates on when not covered
with a saucepan.
• The hob is fitted with a hot hob indicator light,
which illuminates when the hob is too hot to
touch. The light will go off when the hob has
cooled.
Ensure that the hob and saucepans are clean
and dry before the start of cooking.
IMPORTANT!
Follow the cleaning instructions very closely to
keep the hob looking like new.
Do not allow hot pans or baking trays to
touch the controls as dammage may occur.
If spillage occurs with sugar solutions, e.g.
jams and syrups, it must be wiped from the hob
before it sets and becomes hard otherwise
damage to the hob will occur.
The grill
CAUTION!
Accessible parts may be hot when the grill is
in use. Young children should be kept away.
The grill is a dual circuit grill which means that
the full area of the grill can be used, or for
economy purposes, the centre section only can
be used when cooking smaller quantities of
food.
Using the grill
Turn the top oven/grill
grill to the required
setting.
The grill settings are as follows:Full grill area at ¼ power.
Centre grill area at full power.
Full grill area at full power.
Things to note
• To ensure optimal cooking performance
the elements have been carefully
designed, so that only the inner element
glows red. The outer element is hot, but
will remain dark in colour. This gives you
the best possible cooking results.
14
•
•
The cooling fan for the controls may operate
after a time.
Some smoke from fat splashes may be
evident as the grill cleans itself.
WARNING!
Never cover the grill pan or grid with foil as
this can lead to grill fires.
The grill pan and handle
The grill pan has a removable handle. Attach and remove as described below
To attach. Press the
button on the handle
with the thumb and
insert the lip into the
widest part of the
bracket.
Slide the handle
towards the left and
release the button.
WARNING!
Ensure the handle is properly located.
Place the grill pan on the shelf so that the pan is
positioned centrally beneath the grill. Ensure
that the cut out on the underside of the handle
bracket locates between the bars of the shelf
and over the cross bar on the shelf.
To Remove. Press
the button on the
handle with the thumb
and slide the handle
towards the right.
Release the button.
WARNING!
Protect your hands when removing the grill
pan handle. Always remove the grill pan
handle during grilling.
IMPORTANT!
To check the progress of the food being grilled,
the grill pan should be withdrawn on the shelf to
attend to food during cooking.
15
Hints and tips
• Most foods should be placed on the grid in the
grill pan to allow maximum circulation of air to
lift the food out of the fats and juices.
• Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to
allow for different thicknesses of food.
• Food should be thoroughly dried before grilling
to minimise splashing. Brush lean meats and
fish lightly with a little oil or melted butter to
keep them moist during cooking.
• Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed underneath the grid
when grilling meats.
• When toasting bread use the shelf in position 3
with the grid in the high position.
• When using the centre section grill, ensure
food is placed centrally on the grilling grid
directly beneth the grill element.
• Preheat the grill on a full setting for a few
minutes before sealing steaks or toasting.
Adjust the heat setting and the shelf as
necessary during cooking.
• The food should be turned over during cooking
as required.

The top oven
The top oven is the smaller of the two ovens. It
is designed for cooking smaller quantities of
food. It gives especially good results if used to
cook fruitcakes, sweets and savoury flans or
quiche.
The top oven is also ideal for use as warming
compartment to warm dishes and keep food hot.
Use the top oven when you want to warm
plates. Use the lowest setting on the second
oven temperature control.
Using the top oven
Turn the top oven/grill
control to the required
setting.
Things to note
• The indicator neon will glow.
It may turn ON
and OFF during use to show that the setting
is being maintained.
•
The cooling fan for the controls may operate
after a time.
WARNING!
To fit the top oven shelf
The shelf should be fitted with the straight rods
uppermost on the frame and the forms towards the
back of the oven. To remove a shelf slide the
shelf towards you until the shelf stop is reached.
Tilt shelf up at the front to that the stops clear the
side supports. Lift shelf clear. To install a shelf,
reverse the above steps.
Do not place dishes, tins and trays directly on
the oven base as it becomes very hot and
damage will occur.
17
Hints and tips
•
•
The material and finish of the baking tray
and dishes used affect base browning.
Enamelware, dark, heavy or non-stick
utensils increase base browning. Shiny
aluminium or polished steel trays reflect the
heat away and give less base browning.
•
Because of the smaller cooking space and
lower temperatures, shorter cooking times
are sometimes required. Be guided by the
recommendations given in the cooking
chart.
•
Do not place baking trays directly on the
oven base as it interferes with the oven air
circulation and can lead to base burning;
use the lower shelf position.
•
For economy leave the door open for the
shortest possible time, particularly when
placing food into a pre-heated oven.
Arrange the shelves in the required
positions before switching the oven on.
Shelf positions are counted from the
bottom upwards.

•
There should always be at least 2.5cm (1”)
between the top of the food and the
element. This gives best cooking results
and allows room for rise in yeast mixtures,
Yorkshire puddings etc. When cooking
cakes, pastry, scones bread etc., place the
tins or baking trays centrally on the shelf.
•
Ensure that food is placed centrally on the
shelf and there is sufficient room around
the baking tray/dish to allow for maximum
circulation.
•
Stand dishes on a suitably sized baking
tray on the shelf to prevent spillage onto
the oven base and to help reduce cleaning.
18
WARNING!
Do not place cookware and cooking pots
with rough bases e.g. cast iron on the oven
door as damage to the glass may occur.
The main oven
The fan oven is particularly suitable for cooking
larger quantities of food. The advantages of fan
oven cooking are:
Preheating
The fan oven quickly reaches its temperature,
so it is not usually necessary to preheat the
oven. Without preheating however, you may
need to add an extra 5 – 10 minutes on the
recommended cooking times. For recipes
needing high temperatures, e.g. bread, pastries,
scones, soufflés etc., best results are achieved
if the oven is preheated first. For best results
when cooking frozen or cooked chilled ready
meals always preheat the oven first.
Batch baking
The fan oven cooks evenly on both shelf levels,
especially useful when batch baking.
To fit the main oven shelves
The shelf should be fitted with the straight rods
uppermost on the frame and the forms towards
the back of the oven. To remove a shelf slide
the shelf towards you until the shelf stop is
reached. Tilt shelf up at the front to that the
stops clear the side supports. Lift shelf clear.
To install a shelf, reverse the above steps.
Cooking temperatures
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower
temperatures than conventional cooking.
Follow the temperatures recommended in the
cooking chart. As a guide reduce temperatures
by about 20°C – 25°C for your own recipes,
using a conventional oven.
Using the main oven
Turn the main oven
temperature control to
the required setting.
19
Things to note
• The oven light will illuminate.
• The indicator neon will glow. It may turn on
and off during use to show that the setting is
being maintained.
• The cooling fan for the controls may operate
after a time.
• The oven fan will operate.
• If an automatic programme has been set, the
oven light will not come on until cooking
begins.
Hints and tips
• Arrange the shelves in the required positions
before switching the oven on. Shelf positions
are numbered from the bottom upwards.
5

1
• When cooking more than one dish in the fan
oven, place dishes centrally on different
shelves rather than cluster several dishes on
one shelf, this will allow the heat to circulate
freely for the best cooking results.
• When batch baking one type of food, e.g.
Victoria sandwich cakes, those of similar
size will be cooked in the same time.
20
• It is recommended that when baking larger
quantities the shelf positions should be
evenly spaced to suit the load being cooked.
A slight increase in cooking time may be
necessary.
• Do not place baking trays directly on the
oven base as it interferes with the oven air
circulation and can lead to base burning; use
the lower shelf position.
WARNING!
Do not place cookware and cooking pots
with rough bases e.g. cast iron on the oven
door as damage to the glass may occur.

The roasting temperatures and times given in the chart should be adequate for most joints, but
slight adjustments may be required to allow for personal requirements and the shape and texture of
the meat. However, lower temperatures and longer cooking times are recommended for less tender
cuts or larger joints.
Wrap joints in foil if preferred, for extra browning uncover for the last 20 – 30 min. cooking time.
23
Defrost
This main oven function defrosts most foods
faster than more conventional methods. It is
particularly suitable for delicate frozen foods
which are to be served cold e.g. cream filled
gateaux, cakes covered with icings or frostings,
cheesecakes, biscuits, scones, etc.
Using defrost
Turn the main oven
temperature control to
the required setting.
Things to note
• The oven fan and interior light will come on.
Hints and tips
• Place the frozen food in a single layer where
possible and turn it over half way through the
defrosting process.
• The actual speed of defrosting is influenced
by room temperature. On warm days
defrosting will be faster than on cooler days.
• It is preferable to thaw fish, meat and poultry
slowly in the fridge. However, this process
can be accelerated by using the defrost
function. Small or thin fish fillets, frozen
peeled prawns, cubed or minced meat, liver,
thin chops, steaks etc., can be thawed in 1 –
2 hours.
• A 1kg/2¼lb oven ready chicken will be
thawed in approximately 5 hours. Remove
the giblets as soon as possible during the
thawing process.
24
• Joints of meat up to 2kg/4½lb in weight can
be thawed using the defrost function.
• All joints of meat and poultry must be thawed
thoroughly before cooking.
• Always cook thoroughly immediately after
thawing.
• Do not leave food at room temperature once
it is defrosted. Cook raw food immediately
or store cooked food in the fridge, once it
has cooled.
• Care must always be taken when handling
foods in the home. Always follow the basic
rules of food hygiene to prevent bacterial
growth and cross contamination when
defrosting, preparing, cooking, cooling and
freezing foods.
Main oven light
It is possible to turn the light on in your main
oven.
Using main oven light
Turn the main oven
temperature control to
the required setting.
Top oven light
It is possible to turn the light on in your top
oven.
Using top oven light
Turn the top oven
temperature control to
the required setting.
25
Slow cook
The slow cook setting gives a very low heat in
the oven. It is particularly useful when you are
cooking soups, stews and casseroles because
the long slow cooking will make cheaper,
tougher cuts of meat more tender.
Some foods such as pastry and biscuits are not
suitable for slow cooking because the
temperature is too low. Cover all food during
cooking to prevent it from drying out. You can
uncover food for the last half hour if it is
normally served golden brown.
Using slow cook
You need to cook food at 170oC for 30 minutes before you turn the oven down to the slow cook
setting. This makes sure that the temperature of the food gets hot enough to start the food cooking.
Turn the main oven
control knob to the
required setting
26
After 30 minutes turn
the main oven control
to the slow cook
setting
Food preparation – slow cooking
Joints of meat and poultry
Milk puddings
• Do not cook meat joints over 2.7kg (6lb).
• Do not cook poultry over 2 kg (4lb 8oz).
• Cook on the middle shelf of the oven or
above.
• Cook stuffing separately.
• Cook for at least six hours.
• Only cook joints of pork if you can make
sure, by using a meat thermometer, that the
temperature inside the joint is at least 88°C.
• For good air circulation always stand joints
on a rack in a roasting tin or casserole.
• Thaw all frozen meat and poultry before you
cook it.
• Prime cuts of meat do not benefit from slow
cooking.
• Remove excess fat and skin unless it is
browned first.
• Cover the cereal with boiling water and leave
it to stand for 30 minutes.
• Drain and make the pudding in the usual
way.
Soups, casseroles and stews
• Do not cook casseroles over 2.7 kg (6lb).
• Bring to the boil on the hob then cook on
slow cook.
• Cook on the middle shelf of the oven or
above.
• Cover food with a tight fitting lid or tin foil.
General points
Frozen Foods
Thaw thoroughly before cooking.
Thickening
Toss meat in flour for casseroles.
Alternatively blend cornflour with water and add
it at the end of cooking.
Flavouring
Flavours are held in the food because there is
little evaporation. Adjust flavouring at the end of
the cooking time.
Liquid
Use slightly less liquid as there is little
evaporation during cooking. Always add milk
and milk products, for example cream towards
the end of cooking to prevent them from
curdling.
Vegetables
• Cut into small pieces.
• Dried beans must be pre-soaked then boiled
in an open pan for 15 minutes before adding
to any dish.
• Place vegetables under meat in casseroles.
• Cover food with a tight fitting lid or tin foil.
Reheating
Cool left over food quickly and then put it in the
fridge. Do not reheat food using the slow cook
setting. Reheat food in the usual way or in a
microwave. Only reheat food once.
27
Care and cleaning
WARNING!
Before cleaning always allow the appliance
to cool down before switching off at the
electricity supply.
Cleaning materials
• Before using any cleaning materials on your
appliance, check that they are suitable and
that their use is recommended by the
manufacturer.
• Cleaners that contain bleach should not be
used as they may dull the surface finishes.
Harsh abrasives and scourers should also be
avoided. Multi-surface anti-bacterial cleaning
products should not be used on the ceramic
hob or on the surrounding trims.
Cleaning the outside of the
appliance
• Do not use abrasive cleaning materials e.g.
abrasive cream cleaners, wire wool pads or
scourers on painted or printed finishes as
damage may occur. Regularly wipe over the
control panel, control knobs, handles, doors
and appliance sides using a soft cloth and hot
soapy water. To prevent streaking, finish with
a soft cloth.
• Stainless Steel cream cleaners are abrasive
and should be avoided as they may dull the
surface finish. Any spillage on the
stainless steel finish must be wiped off
immediately.
WARNING!
Do not attempt to remove any of the control
knobs from the appliance as this may cause
damage and is a safety hazard.
28
Cleaning the ceramic hob
• Make sure the ceramic glass is cool before
cleaning. It is important to clean the ceramic
hob daily to prevent foodstuff being burnt on.
• Take care to avoid the hob trims when
cleaning the ceramic glass as they may be
damaged by the cleaning agents.
Daily cleaning
• Use a hob-cleaning product specifically
designed for ceramic hobs daily. If foodstuff
is not allowed to burn on it will be much
easier to clean off.
• Apply a small amount of hob cleaner in the
centre of each area to be cleaned.
• Dampen a clean paper towel or a plastic pad
designed for non-stick saucepans and rub
vigorously until all marks are removed. This
may take a few minutes.
• Wipe off residues of cleaner with another
damp paper towel and polish dry with a soft
cloth.
• If hob cleaner is unavailable, one or more of
the cleaning agents below may be used
temporarily:
• Cream Cleaner
• Baking Soda
To remove more stubborn
marks
• Cream cleaner may be used to clean off
more stubborn stains or to remove
discolouration.
• It may be necessary to rub the marks hard
for several minutes.
• Use a plastic pad designed for non-stick
saucepans with cream cleaner for removal of
more stubborn stains.
To remove burnt on foodstuff
• We strongly recommend the use of a
Ceramic Hob Scraper (incorporating a single
edge razor blade) to remove spillage on the
hob, in particular sugar solutions, which if not
removed can cause permanent damage.
• Make sure the ceramic glass is cool.
• Use a ceramic hob scraper with care at an
angle of 30° to remove as much foodstuff as
possible.
• Use hob cleaner or cream cleaner to finish off
as directed above.
To remove discolourations or
white and silver marks
• These marks sometimes give the impression
of being in or underneath the hob glass.
They can almost always be removed
provided they have not become excessively
burnt on. Follow the instructions above under
‘To remove more stubborn marks’.
• If this is unsuccessful, make up a paste of
one part water to three parts Cream of Tarter
and leave on the discoloured areas overnight.
The marks should be easily removable the
next day provided they have not been
excessively burnt on. The paste should be
thoroughly washed off afterwards.
IMPORTANT!
To reduce marking of the hob
• Make sure the bottom of the saucepan and
the cooking area is clean and dry before
cooking begins.
• Ensure saucepans are large enough to
accommodate food to avoid boil-over.
• If possible, wipe up spills and splatters as
they occur, but take care to avoid steam
burns.
• Avoid using a dishcloth or sponge to clean
the hob. These may leave a layer of soiled
detergent on the hob surface, which will burn
and discolour the next time the hob is used.
Avoid the use of:
• Household detergents and bleaches.
• Impregnated plastic or nylon pads that are
not described as suitable for non-stick
saucepans.
• Abrasive cleaning pads, scourers and steel
wool pads.
• Chemical oven cleaners, e.g. aerosols and
oven pads.
• Rust stain, bath and sink stain removers.
• Any of the above products may cause
damage to the hob.
• It is dangerous to mix different cleaning
products. The chemicals in them may react
with each other with hazardous results.
• Sugar solutions must be removed from the
hob before the syrup has set otherwise
damage to the hob surface will occur.
• Avoid placing plastic items, foil or dishes on
the hot surface as this will cause damage to
the hob
Cleaning the grill/oven furniture
• All removable parts, except the grill pan
handle can be washed in the dishwasher.
• The grill pan, grill pan grid and oven shelves
may be cleaned using a soap impregnated
steel wool pad. Soaking first in hot soapy
water will make cleaning easier.
29
Cleaning inside the grill and
oven compartments
• The sides and back of the grill/second oven
and main oven compartments are coated with
a special Stay-clean coating. They should
not be cleaned manually.
• The vitreous enamel main oven base and grill
compartment base can be cleaned using
normal oven cleaners with care. Ensure that
the manufacturers instructions are followed
and that all parts are well rinsed afterwards.
WARNING!
Aerosol cleaners must not come into contact
with elements, the door seal, or any painted
finishes as this may cause damage.
WARNING!
Aerosol cleaners must not be used on Stayclean surfaces.
• To carry out the cleaning cycle, remove the
oven shelves and set the oven to 220°C.
• It is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or
two per week to ensure continued good
performance from the Stay-clean finish.
• Slight discolouration and polishing of the
Stay-clean surfaces may occur in time. This
does not affect the Stay-clean properties in
any way.
• Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when
roasting meat, potatoes only require brushing
with fat before cooking. Extra fat in the oven
during roasting will increase splashing and
staining of the cavity.
• It is not necessary to add water to a meat tin
when roasting. The water and the fat juices
from the joint create excessive splattering
during cooking – even at normal
temperatures, as well as causing
condensation.
30
• Covering joints during cooking will also
prevent splashing onto the interior surfaces.
Removing the covering for the last 20-30
minutes will allow extra browning if required.
Some large joints and turkeys especially
benefit by this method of cooking, allowing
the joint to cook through before the outside is
over-browned.
Cleaning the door(s)
WARNING!
To prevent damaging or weakening the door
glass panels avoid the use of the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Household detergents and bleaches
Soap impregnated pads unsuitable for
non-stick saucepans.
Abrasive cleaning pads, scourers and
steel wool pads.
Chemical oven pads or aerosols.
Rust removers.
Bath/Sink stain removers.
Cleaning between the outer and
inner door glass
IMPORTANT!
The inner door glass is removable for cleaning.
IMPORTANT!

the possibility of the panel shattering.
Please contact your local service force
centre who will be pleased to advise further.
To replace the door glass
To ensure the glass is properly located the text
should be facing towards you at the top edge of
the door and facing into the cavity.
Holding the glass with both hands, gently slide
the glass into the side trims of the oven door.
Always ensure that the glass is returned to the
same side trim it was removed from.
To replace the trim, line up the clips on the
underside of the trim with the connectors at the
top of the door.
Carefully slide the trim towards the door.
Ensure the trim is securely in place before
closing the oven door.
WARNING!
Do not attempt to use the oven without the
glass being in place.
To clean the glass door panels
Clean the inner glass door panels using hot
soapy water, hob cleaner may also be used. Do
not use hob cleaner on the stainless steel or
painted surfaces. Ensure that all parts are well
rinsed and thoroughly dried before attempting to
replace the glass.
