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 sandwitches.
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 and two wire shelves to support the
trays. The position of the shelves will be determined by the size of the items to be baked.
Ideally, unused trays and shelves should be left in position to optimise airflow in the oven.
If desired, an additional tray and shelf may be purchased from the nearest Defy Parts Centre
so that baking may be done on three trays simultaneously.
• 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.

TURBO & NORMAL GRILLING
Baking guide
• Thermofan baking may be done on one or two baking trays depending on volume.
• 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.
PAGE 11 OF 20
6 Conventional grilling.
•
•
•
•
•
The oven door must remain partially open ( about 80mm.) when grilling.
Use only a wire shelf when grilling as the intense heat could warp the baking tray.
Set the multifunction knob to conventional grill.
Set the oven thermostat to the grill position.
Operating instructions are otherwise the same as those for turbo grilling mentioned
previously.
NOTE
THE OVEN DOOR SHOULD REMAIN CLOSED WHEN TURBO GRILLING
AND REMAIN PARTIALLY OPEN WHEN USING CONVENTIONAL GRILL.
NOTE
THE CONTROL PANEL COOLING FAN PROTECTS THE CONTROLS FROM EXCESSIVE
HEAT WHILE THE OVEN IS WORKING AND WILL CONTINUE TO OPERATE FOR ABOUT
20-35 MINUTES AFTER THE OVEN IS SWITCHED OFF
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.

Care guide for stainless steel. For 600MGSE model
Stainless steel is not adversely affected by normal household use but because of it’s reputation for durability, it is sometimes assumed to be indestructible, and therefore subjected to misuse or even abuse. Care should be taken to avoid such ‘abnormal use’.
Cleaning materials
. DO USE
• A soft cloth or synthetic sponge.
• Soap, or a mild household detergent.
• Diluted ammonia in warm water.
• A nylon bristle brush.
• Cleaners labelled “Suitable for stainless
steel”.
• DO NOT USE
•
•
•
•
•
•
Acids.
Coarse abrasive cleaning powders.
Metallic scourers, steel wool or metal
scrapers.
Wire brushes or emery paper.
So called ‘silver cleaners’.
Kitchen scourers/foam pads.
Cleaning procedure
• Frequent cleaning is recommended rather than an occasional aggressive clean.
• Routine cleaning will preserve the corrosion resistance and appearance of the stainless steel for many years.
• Clean the stainless steel as often as necessary ( i.e. when noticeably dull or dirty ) and
use the simplest cleaning method that will effectively do the job.
• Use clean water, or a mild detergent solution applied with a soft cloth or sponge.
Rinse well and wipe dry.

NOTES AND COMMENTS
Requires routine cleaning.
Mild detergent solution applied with soft sponge or
cloth. Rinse and wipe dry.
If possible use warm to hand
-hot water. A 5% addition of
ammonia is beneficial.
Finger prints.
Pre-treat finger marks with
alcohol or an organic solvent. Follow immediately
with routine cleaning.
Minimize re-occurrence by
applying a wax or silicone
based household polish to
the clean dry surface.
Wipe with a little baby oil
and a soft lint free cloth.
Buff to shine.
Apply whenever necessary.
Stubborn stains and
Discolouration.
Use a little Ceran cleaning
paste. (available from Defy
Service Centres).
Rinse and dry.
Repeat several times rather
than resorting to a single
aggressive cleaning method.
Grease and fat splatter.
Wipe off excess with a soft
cloth or paper towel. Use a
water borne degreasing
agent (dishwashing liquid).
Follow up by routine cleaning.
Scratches on the brushed
finish.
For slight scratches, use a
nylon pad loaded with an
iron-free abrasive polishing
compound. Follow the direction of the original texture.
Follow up with routine
cleaning.
For deep scratches use a
coarser abrasive initially and
follow up as for light
scratches.
Deep scratches will be difficult to remove completely.
Do not use steel wool or
metal scourers unless they
are made from stainless
steel.
IT MUST BE APPRECIATED THAT SOME OF THE SUGGESTED PROCEDURES WILL
ALTER THE SURFACE APPEARANCE OF THE TREATED AREA. THEY SHOULD
THEREFORE BE APPLIED WITH DUE CONSIDERATION AND CARE.

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.
If you have followed the instructions and still have a problem, contact the
nearest Defy Technical Support Centre. They will be able to advise you on
any aspect of the product or send a qualified technician to repair it.
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.
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.
Leave about a 40mm. air gap between
baking tins and the oven walls.
Adequate air circulation is important
for good baking results.
Get into the habit of wearing oven
gloves when handling utensils in a hot
oven. This will help to avoid accidental
burns.
Partly slide out the oven shelf before
removing hot dishes from the oven.
This will prevent accidental contact
with the hot oven sides.
PAGE 17 OF 20
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.
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.
Put baking tins on the floor of the oven.
This will prevent heat circulation and
spoil baking results.
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.
