BEFORE USE
1. Carefully unpack the convection oven and remove all packaging materials.
2. Select a flat, heat-resistant, and non-flammable surface to place the convection oven.
3. Do not immerse the heating element or lid in water or any other liquid.
4. To remove any dust that may have accumulated on the removable parts during packaging,
clean the surface with a damp cloth and remove any stickers (except for any warning/caution
stickers).
5. Wash the glass bowl container in warm soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
6. Before first use, heat up the oven, empty, at maximum temperature for five minutes. This
will burn off the brand new scent. A little smoke may occur. This is normal and will soon
disappear during usage.
7. After the timer has turned off and the oven is completely cooled, wipe the inside of the glass
bowl container once more.
WARNING:
To ensure continued protection against the risk of electric shock, connect to properly
grounded outlets only.
This appliance has a three-prong plug (meaning there are three prongs to fit into a power
outlet).
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a three-prong electrical
outlet only in one direction. If it does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to
modify the plug in any way.
CAUTION:
Always be aware that this is an oven and that the glass bowl container and the lid will
become very hot during its use.
NOTE: Always place a pan or bowl on one of the included racks. Do not place a pan or bowl
directly on the bottom of the glass bowl container.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place the low rack in the glass bowl container before putting in the food. Keeping the
food approximately 1 to 1.25” from the glass wall to allow maximum hot air circulation.
NOTE: Dual rack is used for achieving crispness or browning of the food.
2. Place top lid securely on the glass bowl container.
NOTE: Make sure that the food does not touch the top of the lid.
3. Insert the power cord firmly into the wall outlet.
4. Before turning the oven on, push handle down until it snaps securely in place. If the
handle is not completely down, the oven will not turn on.
5. Set the timer to the desired time. The power LED lights will illuminate.
6. The timer will switch “off” after the preset time period has passed and a bell will sound
momentarily to alert you that the cooking time is over.
7. Unplug the cord from the power outlet before removing the lid.
8. Do not put the oven lid directly on the countertop or table or cooking surface, otherwise,
the cooking surface may leave a spot.
9. Always use wooden, heat proof plastic and nylon utensil while cooking. Metal utensils
may scratch the glass bowl container.
NOTE: As a safety feature, the convection oven will switch off when the handle is lifted up.
To turn the appliance back on, swing the handle all the way down.

COOKING TIPS
Broiling and Grilling
• Place food directly on the low rack without covering. Use the high rack to bring food closer to
heat source for additional crispness and browning of food.
• If the meat or fish is very lean, brush the rack with cooking oil before arranging the food on
the rack.
• For a glazing affect, set the food 4 inches away from top heating unit. Apply the desired glaze
and broil at 400 to 475F until the desired shade of brown is reached. Fruit jams, preserves and
jellies work well as a glaze for broiled foods.
Baking
• When baking cakes, biscuits, brownies, muffins and cookies make sure the containers fit
within the glass bowl and on top of rack. Disposable aluminum foil mini-loaf pans work well as
they allow for faster and even cooking. Preheating is not necessary for baking in a convection
oven.
Air Frying
• Little or no oil is used, yet the effect is like pan-frying or deep frying. If oil is used, only a thin
layer of oil should be evenly applied to the food with the aid of a pastry brush.
• Spray or brush vegetable oil onto the rack to assist with easier removal of cooked food.
• Once food has finished cooking, remove the top lid from the glass bowl, otherwise, the steam
will cause the food to become soggy instead of crispy.
NOTE: NEVER FILL THE GLASS BOWL WITH OIL. THIS APPLIANCE IS NOT TO BE USED AS A DEEP
FRYER!
Steaming
To steam, place food in a bowl or small pan on top of the low rack making sure that the food
does not contact the sides of your container. Pour water or broth into the bottom of the bowl
or pan using half cup of liquid for every 1lb of food. Cover tightly with aluminum foil making
sure food does not come in contact with the foil. Place wrapped container into the oven and
cook at 350F for 5 to 10 minutes depending upon individual taste.

RECIPES
All cooking times are approximate. Always ensure that food is fully cooked inside before serving.
The following recipe, temperature settings and cooking times are for guidance only; cooking
times may vary according to the weight of the food being cooked and individual taste.

1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon fresh mustard
Salt

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cut slits in the beef and place in a metal roasting tin. Combine ginger,
mustard, salt and pepper, and rub over the beef. Wrap the beef in foil. Place beef on low rack for
approximately 1 hour depending on the degree of rareness that is required. Baste occasionally.
Remove the meat and keep it wrapped in foil. To make the gravy, blend the corn flour with the
water and add to the roasting tin, bringing gently to the boil, stirring as it thickens.

Preheat the oven to 400ºF, wash and pat dry the fish steaks and place on the baking sheet lined
with baking parchment. Thinly slice the tomato. Trim and shred the leek. Arrange the tomato

cheese. Place fish on the low rack and bake in the oven for 10 to15 minutes or until tender and
cooked thoroughly.
ROASTED WHOLE CHICKEN
Method
Wash and dry the chicken and rub with desired spices. Let seasoning penetrate the chicken for a
few hours (overnight is best) before roasting. Line the bottom of the glass bowl with aluminum
foil to catch drippings. Place whole chicken on low rack and roast at 400°F for about 10 minutes
