Multifunction oven
The Defy multifunction oven features 6 distinct cooking functions. (described below)
These functions may be selected by turning the multifunction selector knob until the
required function symbol is displayed at the top of the knob bezel.
Symbol
Function
1 Defrosting Only the fan is used. No heat is generated.
• In this mode the fan at the back of the oven will circulate
air at room temperature, substantially reducing the defrosting period required for frozen food.
2 Static Oven The bottom and top heat elements are used
• Use the static oven mode for traditional baking and roasting.
3 Fan Assisted Oven The fan plus the bottom and top heat
elements are used
• Use the fan assisted oven mode for traditional baking and
roasting where a more even heat distribution is required.
4 Thermofan Oven The fan plus the element surrounding
the fan is used
• Registered by Defy in 1978, Thermofan cooking differs
from conventional cooking in that it uses the principle of
forced convection within the oven.
• The advantages are:
• Both baking trays may be used at the same time.
• Different dishes can be cooked simultaneously without
flavour or aroma transfer. Hence fish, meat and cakes
can be baked at the same time.
• The oven door may be opened any time for inspection
purposes without risk.
5 Turbo Grill The fan plus the grill element are used
• This mode is recommended to reduce shrinkage when grilling meat or fish.
6 Grill Only the grill element is used
• This mode is recommended for conventional grilling such
as toasted cheese sandwiches.
PAGE 8 OF20
Element selection
Multifunction oven– Operation
WARNING: Under no circumstances should the bottom bake element be
covered with aluminium foil. Nor should a pan or tray be positioned
directly above the bake element.
Doing so would reflect the heat from the bake element downwards. Heat to the
oven would be restricted and overheating of the space below the element
would result in damage to the oven enamel.
1 Fan only Used for defrosting
•
Set the multifunction knob to fan only. In this mode the fan at the back of the oven will
circulate air at room temperature, substantially reducing the defrosting period required for
frozen food.
2 Static Oven Used for traditional baking
•
•
•
•
•
Use the wire shelf only. Remove the baking trays during baking in static mode as they are
to be used for Thermofan baking only.
Set the multifunction selector to static oven and the oven thermostat to the required
temperature. The indicator light will glow and remain on until the oven has reached the
selected temperature.
When the indicator light switches off, the food should be placed in the oven.
During cooking the indicator light will cycle on and off as the oven thermostat maintains
the selected temperature.
After completion, return the multifunction selector and the oven thermostat to the OFF
position in an anti clockwise direction.
Baking guide
• Bake on a wire shelf only. The recommended position is
shown on the right.
• Place the food halfway between the back of the oven and
the door.
• Do not open the oven door until at least two thirds of the
baking time has elapsed.
PAGE 9 OF 20
3 Fan assisted oven For traditional baking & even heat distribution
• Use the wire shelves only. Remove the baking trays during fan assisted mode as they are to
be used for Thermofan baking only.
• Set the multifunction selector to fan assisted oven and the oven thermostat to the required
temperature. The indicator light will glow and remain on until the oven has reached the
selected temperature.
• No preheating is necessary and the food can be placed in the oven immediately.
• During cooking the indicator light will cycle on and off as the oven thermostat maintains the
selected temperature.
• After completion, return the multifunction selector and the oven thermostat to the OFF
position in an anticlockwise direction.
Baking guide
• Cooking / baking is done at slightly lower temperatures than in the
static mode.
• Baking may be done on two wire shelves simultaneously.
• The recommended shelf positions are shown on the right.
• Place the food halfway between the back of the oven and the door.
• Do not open the oven door until at least half of the baking time has
elapsed.
4 Thermofan oven
Registered by Defy in 1978, Thermofan cooking differs from conventional cooking in that it
uses the principle of forced convection within the oven. The advantages are:
1. All the trays may be used at the same time.
2. Different dishes can be cooked simultaneously without flavour or aroma transfer. Hence fish,
meat and cakes can be baked at the same time.
3. The oven door may be opened any time for inspection purposes without risking a flop.
4. By circulating hot air around the food, spit-roast chickens may be done without using a
rotisserie.
5. Cooking is done at slightly lower temperatures, saving electricity and reducing splatter.
Baking
Thermofan ovens are supplied with two baking trays. The position of the trays will be
determined by the size of the items to be baked. If desired, an additional tray may be purchased
from the nearest Defy Parts Centre so that baking may be done on three trays simultaneously.
Ideally, unused trays and shelves should be left in position to optimise airflow in the oven.
• Set the multifunction selector to Thermofan oven and the oven thermostat to the required
temperature.
• The indicator light will glow and remain on until the oven has reached the selected
temperature. When the indicator light switches off, the food should be placed in the oven.
During baking the indicator light will cycle on and off as the oven thermostat maintains the
selected temperature.
• After completion, return the multifunction selector and the oven thermostat to the OFF
position in an anti-clockwise direction.

T/F ROASTING
TURBO & NORMAL GRILLING
Note 831 and 835 models are supplied with a wire support shelf for the baking trays
Baking guide
• Large items: One or two cake tins may be placed as shown and as close to the door as
possible. If one tin is used , it should be placed centrally left to right .
• Small items: The entire area of each tray may be utilised. Avoid any time delays between
positioning the two trays.
• All ovens extract a certain amount of moisture from the food being cooked. The greater
capacity of the Thermofan oven allows more food to be cooked and thus more moisture
may be released. This is normal and is not detrimental to the food or the oven.
Caution: Thermofan baking relies on good contact between the bottom of the cake tin
and the oven tray. Do not use spring form baking tins with a raised bottom. The
lack of contact will cause the bottom of the cake to be underdone. These tins may be
used on a wire shelf where no insulating air space is created.
5 Turbo grilling. For meat and fish
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The oven door must remain closed when Turbo grilling.
Use only a wire shelf when grilling as the intense heat could warp the baking trays.
Turbo grilling is most suitable for meat as drying out and shrinkage will be reduced.
Set the multifunction knob to turbo grill.
Set the oven thermostat to the grill position.
Pre-heat the grill element for about 5 minutes
Place the food on the grid/roast pan and place this on the wire shelf near to the grill
element.
Monitor the grilling process to avoid burning the food.
Care must be taken not to touch the grill element while handling food in the oven. If
necessary, partially withdraw the shelf to improve access.
After completion, return the multifunction selector and the oven thermostat to the OFF
position in an anticlockwise direction.
WARNING:
ACCESSIBLE PARTS BECOME HOT DURING BAKING AND GRILLING.
ALWAYS USE OVEN GLOVES WHEN HANDLING FOOD IN THE OVEN
AND KEEP CHILDREN WELL AWAY FROM THE PRODUCT WHEN IT IS IN USE.

6 Grilling.
•
•
•
•
•
The oven door must remain partially open (the hinges allow for the door to be held
in this position) when using the conventional Grill.
Use only a wire shelf when grilling as the intense heat could warp the baking tray.
Set the multifunction knob to grill.
Set the oven thermostat to the grill position.
Operating instructions are otherwise the same as those for turbo grilling mentioned previously.

Solid plates (Models 731MF and 831MF)
Plate controls
• Select the heat level by turning the relevant plate control knob to the required setting.
• The higher the number selected, the hotter the temperature of the plate will be.
• The plate indicator light will glow when a plate is switched on.
Red dot plates
• Plates featuring a red dot in the centre are high speed, high wattage plates for increased
performance.
• For your safety these plates are fitted with thermal limiters. Should a plate be
accidentally switched on and left unattended, the limiter will reduce the power output of
the plate and minimise the risk of overheating and the possibility of fire.
Caring for Solid Plates
• Before using the plates for the first time, switch them on for about 4 minutes at the
highest setting. This allows the factory applied protective coating to burn in.
• To prevent blotchy discolouration and corrosion, moisture from spatters and spills
should be cleaned off immediately.
• To clean the plates, wipe them with a damp cloth or nylon pad.
• A little liquid detergent may be used.
• Do not use metal scourers or sharp metal objects to clean the plates.
• After cleaning, dry the plates by switching them on for a short while.
• To prevent rust, periodically apply some sewing machine oil or electrical hotplate polish
available from Defy Service Centres.
• Extra attention is required in areas of high humidity or in close proximity to the sea.
Recommendations
• Use only pots with a solid level base. An uneven base can prolong cooking times and
waste energy.
• Use pots with a base diameter slightly larger than the plate. This will ensure even heat
distribution and prevent spillage from dripping onto and staining the hot plate.
• Always cover the pot with a lid. This will conserve energy and minimise spillage.
• Thermal shock could damage the plates. Do not put cold pots on very hot plates.
NOTE: THE WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER THE REPLACEMENT
OR REPAIR OF RUSTED OR CORRODED PLATES.
PAGE 13 OF 20
R
Ceran smooth top (Models 735MF and 835MF)
WARNING In the unlikely event of sustaining accidental damage and cracking, switch
off the appliance at the mains to avoid electric shock and have the panel replaced before
further use.
Plate controls—variable
• Select the heat level by turning the plate control knob to the required setting.
• 1= low , 3 = medium and 6 = high.
• The relevant pilot light will glow and shortly thereafter the hot surface indicator light
on the hob will glow. It will remain on for 20 to 30 minutes after switch off. This is a
reminder that the hob surface is still too hot to touch.
Caring for the Ceran hob
• Ceran is a tough, durable material, which provides a beautiful, functional and long lasting
cooking surface. To keep it looking good, it needs to be treated with care and cleaned regularly.
• Wipe spillage off as soon as possible with a damp cloth, preferably while the hob is still
warm.
• Clean the hob with a nylon pad and a suitable smooth top cleaning solution, which is available from all Defy Service Centres. Remove calcium stains (yellow stains) by applying a small
amount of lime remover such as vinegar or lemon juice. Other suitable commercially available products can also be used.
• If necessary stubborn spills may be removed using the blade scraper provided.
• Do not use metal scourers or coarse abrasive powders as these could scratch the Ceran.
• Regular cleaning after use will prevent dirt build up and ensure that the hob remains bright
and attractive.
• Wipe the hob surround with a damp hot soapy cloth and dry.
• DO NOT USE A STEAM CLEANER.
Recommendations ( see also the enclosed ‘CERAN’ leaflet )
• Use only pots with a solid level base. An uneven base will prolong cooking time and waste
energy.
• Use pots with a base diameter slightly larger than that of the thermal area. This will ensure
even heat distribution and prevent spillage from dripping onto and staining the hot zone.
• Always cover the pot with a lid. This will conserve energy and minimize spillage.
• Save energy by switching the plate off 5 to 10 minutes before the end of a lengthy cooking
period. The Ceran hob will retain sufficient residual heat to complete the cooking process.
• A pot with rough edges could scratch the Ceran if it were dragged across the surface of the
hob.
• Any spillage of sugar solution such as jam, must be removed immediately. If allowed to
cool on the Ceran it could pit and damage the surface.
• Do not cover the Ceran with aluminium foil and do not use poor quality aluminium pots.
These will leave unsightly deposits which in time, could adhere to the Ceran.

Maintenance
Cleaning the oven
• Switch off the electrical power supply before cleaning any part of the appliance.
• Open the oven door and allow the oven to cool down.
• For improved access, the shelves, trays and oven door may be removed. (see details
below)
• Clean the oven with a damp, hot soapy cloth. Do NOT use steam cleaners.
• It may be necessary to soak burnt soils with a liquid cleaner to soften them before
scrubbing them with a nylon brush or scouring sponge.
• Heavy soils on the bottom of the oven may require overnight soaking under a sponge
liberally sprinkled with household ammonia. The soil can then be removed the following morning by washing normally.
• Do not use metal objects or steel wool to clean the oven
• For your convenience, the shelves may be reELEMENT GUARD
moved.
• After cleaning, fit the bottom element into the
ELEMENT
hooks of the element guard. Failure to observe
this precaution would allow the element to rest HOOK
on and possibly damage the oven enamel.
General cleaning
• Switch off the electrical power supply before cleaning any part of the appliance.
• Wipe down glass panels, cabinet, door, control knobs, trims and handles with a hot
soapy cloth. Do Not use steam cleaners.
• Use only mild liquid household cleaners and avoid abrasive powders, scouring pads and
caustic or ammonia based cleaners.
• Rinse and wipe down with a clean cloth.
Oven light
The oven light is switched on and off by the multifunction selector switch on the control
panel.
To replace a faulty light bulb, proceed as follows.
• Switch off the power at the wall isolator to avoid the possibility of electric shock.
• Remove the light cover by unscrewing it in an anti-clockwise direction
• Unscrew the faulty bulb and replace with an equivalent wattage bulb rated for 300°C.
• Refit the light cover.
Removing the Oven Door
• Open the oven door to the grill position .
• Firmly grasp the door at both sides and pull the door upwards until it is free of the
hinge arms.
• To replace the door, lower the door onto the exposed hinge arms and push firmly home.
• Check to see if the door once more closes properly.
PAGE 15 OF 20
Owner’s responsibility.
Since the following are not factory faults, they are the owner’s responsibility.
• Damage to exterior finish.
• Breakage of glass and other components.
• Replacement of the light bulb.
• Damage through improper installation or use of the appliance.
• Damage caused by moving the appliance.
WARNING: Under no circumstances should the bake element be
covered with aluminium foil. Nor should a pan or tray be positioned
directly above the bake element.
Doing so would reflect the heat from the bake element downwards. Heat
to the oven would be restricted and overheating of the space below the
element would result in damage to the oven enamel.
Problem check.
Do not attempt any repairs yourself.
Before calling a service technician to assist with a problem, please check:
•
The mains distribution board for tripped circuit breakers.
•
That the wall switch is on.
•
Remember that you may be charged for a service call even during the warranty period
if the fault is due to or caused by any of the above.
PAGE 16 OF20
OVER THE YEARS, DEFY'S SERVICE CENTRES
HAVE IDENTIFIED THIS LIST OF DO'S AND DON'TS
AS BEING IMPORTANT FOR CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AND
SAFETY. PLEASE READ IT AND
FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH ITS CONTENTS.
Do
•
Clean your appliance regularly. This
will prolong it's good looks and
enhance hygiene levels.
•
Do close the oven door when using
Turbo grill.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Don’t
•
Use pots which are smaller than the
hotplate diameter. This wastes
electricity and allows the pot
handles to overheat.
•
Leave the appliance unattended
especially when grilling. This is
good practice and avoids accidents.
•
Place anything on the open oven
door. The glass is not a work
surface and could get scratched.
•
Use abrasive cleaning materials.
They will scratch surfaces and
fascia graphics.
•
Allow fat splashes to dry and bake
onto the stove/oven surface before
cleaning them. It is easier to clean
spills while they are still slightly
warm and soft.
•
Leave about a 40mm. air gap
between baking tins and the oven
walls. Adequate air circulation is
important for good baking results.
Put baking tins on the floor of the
oven. This will prevent heat
circulation and spoil baking results.
•
Get into the habit of wearing oven
gloves when handling utensils in a
hot oven. This will help to avoid
accidental burns.
Use the appliance to heat the home.
Neither the hotplates nor the oven
were designed for this purpose and
damage could occur.
•
Allow pot handles to overhang the
front of the appliance. Children
might be tempted to grab them with
harmful consequences.
Do partially open the oven door
when using the conventional Grill.
Use flat bottomed pots and pans
when cooking on the hotplates. This
will maximise efficiency and reduce
electricity costs.
Keep children well away from the
cooking appliance. Explain the
dangers to them. Being safety
conscious is being safe, not sorry.
Supervise the cooking process.
Overcooked or spoiled food is
wasteful.
Partly slide out the oven shelf before
removing hot dishes from the oven.
This will prevent accidental contact
with the hot oven sides.
