Selecting a cooking function and temperature
IMPORTANT: Make sure that you have sent your
oven into manual operation mode before selecting
an oven function and temperature.
Before first use
o To remove any residue from the oven that may have been left from
the manufacturing process, you should select the fan oven function
and set the thermostat to its maximum temperature setting.
o It is perfectly normal for a smell to be produced during this process.
o You should make sure that any windows in the room are left open
during this process.
11
o It is advisable for you not to remain in the room whilst the burning
off process is taking place.
o You should leave the oven on the maximum setting for 30 – 40
minutes.
o After the oven cavity has cooled, it should then be cleaned with
warm soapy water, using either a sponge or soft cloth. No abrasive
cleaners should be used.
o Outer parts of the oven should be cleaned with warm soapy water,
using either a sponge or soft cloth. No abrasive cleaners should be
used.
o We would recommend that an appropriate stainless steel cleaner
and polish is regularly used on the stainless steel surfaces of this
appliance.
Selecting an oven function
The oven function selector knob should be used to select the particular
mode of cooking that you require. The appliance will utilise different
elements within the oven cavity, depending on the oven function that
you select. When a function is selected, the power indicator light will
come on.
Oven functions
OVEN LIGHT: Separate light control which allows the light to
be switched on, even when the oven is not cooking.
GRILL: This method of cooking directs heat downwards onto
the food. This function is suitable for grilling small or medium
portions of bacon, toast and meat, etc.
DEFROST MODE: The fan runs without heat to reduce the
defrosting time of frozen foods. The time required to defrost
the food will depend on the room temperature, the quantity
and type of food. Always check food packaging for the
defrosting instructions.
FAN OVEN: This method of cooking uses the circular element
while the heat is distributed by the fan. This results in a faster
and more economical cooking process. The fan oven allows
food to be cooked simultaneously on different shelves,
preventing the transmission of smells and tastes from one
dish onto another.
12
Thermostat control knob
o The oven thermostat control
knob
sets
the
required
temperature of the oven. It is
possible
to
regulate
the
temperature within a range of
50 - 250°C.
o Turn

in
operation. The light will turn
off when the temperature set
on the thermostat control
knob has been reached. It will
cycle on and off throughout
the cooking time.
You should not place food inside the cavity, until the
correct cooking temperature has been reached.
Cooking guidelines
o Please refer to the information given on food packaging for
guidance on cooking temperatures and times. Once familiar with
the performance of your appliance, temperatures and times can
be varied to suit personal preference.
o If you are using the fan oven function, then you should follow
the information given on the food packaging for this particular
mode of cooking.
o You should pre-heat the oven and not place food inside of it until
the oven operating light has gone off. You can choose not to preheat when using the fan oven mode; however you should extend
the cooking time given on the food packaging by at least ten
minutes.
13
o IMPORTANT: You should ALWAYS pre-heat the oven if you are
baking.
o If there is no guidance given on the food packaging specifically
for cooking in fan oven mode, you can generally reduce the
cooking time and temperature by 10% from the information
given for conventional oven cooking.
o Make sure that frozen foods are thoroughly thawed before
cooking, unless the instructions on the food packaging advise
that you can “cook from frozen”.
o Before cooking, check that any accessories that are not required
are removed from the oven.
o Place cooking trays in the centre of the oven and leave gaps
between the trays to allow air to circulate.
o Try to open the door as little as possible to view the dishes.
o The oven light will remain on during cooking.
Warnings
o Keep the oven door closed when using ALL oven
functions, including the grill function. The oven door must
also be left shut whilst the oven is cooling after use.
o Do not use aluminium foil to cover the enamelled baking tray or
heat items wrapped in aluminium foil under the grill. The high
reflectivity of the foil could potentially damage the grill element.
o You should also never line the base of your oven with aluminium
foil.
o During cooking, never place pans or cookware directly onto the
bottom of your oven. They should always be placed on the shelf
provided.
o The grill heating element becomes extremely hot during
operation, avoid touching it inadvertently when handling the
food which you are grilling.
o Important: Be careful when opening the door, to avoid contact
with hot parts and steam.
14
Shelf positions
Your oven will come supplied with
the following oven furniture:
(A) Safety shelf
(B) Enamelled baking tray
o The numbers 1 – 4, indicate the different shelf positions that you
can utilise within the oven.
o You should use the shelf position(s) that you find are best suited
to your personal cooking preferences.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning operations must only be carried out
when the oven is cool.
The appliance should be disconnected from your
mains supply before commencing any cleaning
process.
o The oven should be thoroughly cleaned before it is operated for
the first time and after each use. This will avoid residual food
stuffs becoming baked on the oven cavity. After residues have
been baked on several times, they are far more difficult to
remove.
o Never clean the oven surfaces by steam cleaning.
o The oven cavity should only be cleaned with warm soapy water,
using either a sponge or soft cloth. No abrasive cleaners should
be used.
o Any stains that may appear on the bottom of the oven will have
originated from food splashes or spilt food, these splashes occur
during the cooking process. These could possibly be a result of
the food being cooked at an excessively high temperature or
being placed in cookware that is too small.
15
o You should make sure that the cooking temperature that is
selected is appropriate for the food that you are cooking. You
should also ensure that the food is placed in an adequately sized
dish and use the enamelled baking tray where appropriate.
o Outer parts of the oven should only be cleaned with warm soapy
water, using either a sponge or soft cloth. No abrasive cleaners
should be used.
o We would recommend that an appropriate stainless steel cleaner
and polish is regularly used on the stainless steel surfaces of this
appliance.
o If you use any form of oven cleaner on your appliance, then you
must check with the manufacturer of the cleaner that it is
suitable for use on your appliance.
o Any damage that is caused to the appliance by a cleaning
product will not be fixed by Venini free of charge, even if
the appliance is within the guarantee period.
Replacing the oven bulb
IMPORTANT: The oven must be disconnected from
your mains supply before you attempt to either
remove or replace the oven bulb.
o Remove all oven shelves, the drip tray and the
side rack that is on the same side as the oven
light.
o Remove the light cover by turning it anticlockwise.
o Unscrew the bulb clockwise and remove it
from its holder.
o Replace the bulb with a 25 W/300°C, screw
type pygmy.
o Do not use any other type of bulb.
o Place the lamp cover back into position.
16
Removing the oven door for cleaning
To facilitate the cleaning of the inside of the oven and the outer frame
of the oven, the door can be removed as follows:o The hinges (A) have two movable bolts on them (B).
o If you raise both of the movable bolts (B), then the hinges (A)
are released from the oven housing.
o You should grip the sides of the door at the centre and then
incline it slightly towards the oven cavity and then pull the door
gently away from the oven cavity.
o IMPORTANT: You should make sure that the door is supported
at all times and that you place the door on some padded
material whilst cleaning it.
o The oven door and door glass should only be cleaned using a
damp cloth and a small amount of detergent. The cloth MUST
NOT have come into contact with any form of cleaning product
or chemical previously.
o To refit the door you should slide the hinges back into their slots
and open the door fully.
o IMPORTANT: The movable bolts (B) must be closed back into
their original positions before closing the door.
o Take care not to dislodge the hinge locking
system when removing the door, as the hinge
mechanism has a strong spring.
o Do not immerse the door in water at any time.
17
Removing the inner door glass for cleaning
o Do not use any abrasive cleaner that could cause damage.
o Remember that if the surface of the glass panel becomes scratched,
this could lead to a dangerous failure.
o To facilitate cleaning, the inner door glass can be lifted out.
o Unscrew the bracket latch that is in the corner of the top of the
door. Remove the glass from the door and clean with warm soapy
water.
o After cleaning, insert the glass panel correctly back into the door.
Screw the bracket latch back into place.
o IMPORTANT: Remember where the panel of glass is removed
from so you can reassemble the door correctly. Do not mix
the glasses up or rearrange the order.
