Warning and Safety instructions
Protection from burning and
scalding
~ The appliance, especially the door,
becomes extremely hot during use, and
remains hot for some time after
switching off. Be careful only to touch
the door button and door handle when
the oven door is hot.
~ To protect your hands, use
heat-resistant pot holders or oven
gloves when using the appliance. Do
not let them get damp or wet, as this
causes heat to transfer through the
material more quickly with the risk of
scalding or burning yourself.
~ Pull out the shelf underneath the
appliance before opening the door. You
can place hot containers on the shelf
and it will also collect any drops of hot
water.
~ On no account attempt to force the
door open during a programme. The
door may only be opened when:
the cooling down phase is
finished,
the beep has stopped,
the g symbol is flashing in the
time display.
Otherwise there is a danger of burning
or scalding.
Attempts to open the door before a
programme has run its course will
cause an alarm to sound, and the word
door to appear in the time display.
12
~ When putting dishes into the oven or
taking them out, take care not to spill
the contents. Do not come into contact
with hot steam. Danger of scalding.
~ If bottling, do not use temperatures
higher than 95 °C (90 °C if the
appliance is installed higher than
1000 m above sea level). Higher

Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Packaging, e.g. cling film, polystyrene
and plastic wrappings, must be kept
out of the reach of babies and young
children. Danger of suffocation.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your household waste.
Dispose of or recycle all packaging
materials safely as soon as possible.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.
14
Before using for the first time
Setting the water hardness
level
The steam oven is set at the factory to
water hardness range IV (04) .
If your water hardness level differs from
this you will need to re-programme the
appliance. Proceed as described in
"Programming".
Location
If the steam oven is installed at an
altitude higher than 1,000 m above sea
level, the boiling point for water will be
lower than the boiling point for water at
sea level. To cater for this, the boiling
point for water in the appliance can be
altered. Proceed as described in
"Programming".
You can use the test strip supplied to
check the water hardness level, or your
local water supplier will be able to
advise you on the water hardness of
your area.
The water hardness is shown as
settings I to IV equivalent to the
German scale 1 to >21 °dH
(0.2 > 3.8 mmol/l).

started.
The charts later in these operating
instructions and the cookery book give
suggested cooking durations for
various types of food. Remember that
the cooking duration is not dependent
on the amount of food, but on the size
of the food. For example, large
potatoes will take longer to cook than
smaller potatoes.
"Start" will appear in the time display,
the g symbol will stop flashing, and
the colon will begin to flash.
The programme/temperature display
will then change to show the actual

Practical tips
Suitable containers
Some stainless steel cooking
containers are supplied with the
appliance.
Other containers, in a variety of sizes,
both perforated and solid, are available
as optional extras (see "Optional
accessories").
When choosing the most suitable
container for the particular food you are
cooking, please note:
– Use perforated cooking containers
whenever possible so long as the
food is suitable, e.g. for vegetables.
The steam can reach the food from
all sides and the food is cooked
evenly.
– With large items of food, such as
whole potatoes, the steam can work
more effectively because there are
spaces between the individual
pieces into which the steam can
penetrate. This way a large quantity
will take the same time to cook as a
smaller amount and large, deep
containers can be used. Where
possible, space the food out to allow
the steam more room.
26
– More compact dishes such as
casseroles or bakes, or food such as
peas or asparagus spears, which
have little or no space between them
will take longer to cook because the
steam has less space to work in. The
fuller the container, the longer it will
take to cook. It is best to use 2 or 3
flat containers rather than one deep
one for these types of foods, and
then fill them only 3 - 5 cm deep.
Cooking durations quoted are
calculated on this principle. Deeper
dishes will take longer to cook.
Heat-resistant glass, ceramic,
porcelain, stainless steel and enamel
dishes are all suitable. Important:
– The container must be heat resistant
to 120 °C.
– Food will take considerably longer to
cook than the time quoted if the dish
has thick sides.
– Place the dish on the tray supplied.
– Ensure that the dish does not touch
the walls of the cooking compartment
so that steam can reach the food
from all sides.

Practical tips
Tips on steaming
We recommend using:
– Steam with pressure ° 120 °C for
rapidly cooking robust foods.
– Steam without pressure P 100 °C
for gently cooking delicate foods.
– You can select any shelf level. You
can also cook on several levels at
the same time. This will not alter the
cooking duration.
– When cooking frozen food, e.g.
vegetables, ensure that any large
clumps frozen together are broken
up first so that they cook evenly. The
cooking duration is approximately
the same as for fresh vegetables.
– Frozen and fresh vegetables which
take the same length of time to cook
can be cooked together.
– Frozen fish should be partially
defrosted before cooking. We
recommend using the "Defrost"
function (see "Defrosting" for more
information).
– Cooking with steam retains the true
taste of the food better than
conventional cooking. Therefore food
should not be seasoned until after it
has been cooked.
– Soak pulses and grains in cold water
before cooking.
Pulses and grains swell during
cooking and so need to be cooked in
liquid. The ratio of pre-soaked pulses
and grains to water is 1:1.
– Rice also swells when cooked and
should be cooked in liquid. The
proportion of food to liquid will vary
depending on the type of rice and
how it has been pre-treated. With
parboiled rice, basmati rice and wild
rice, the proportion of food to liquid
should be 1:1, with brown rice 1:1.5
and risotto rice 1:2.
– Dry pasta and noodles should be
well covered with liquid. Reduce the
cooking time recommended on the
packaging by about 1/3 as the pasta
will start to swell during the heating
up time.
– Cooking liquids do not boil away.
They are either absorbed by the
food, as with rice and pasta, or they
remain in the dish as with casseroles.
The liquid can then be used for
making a sauce, e.g. by adding
crème fraîche.
– Only fill solid containers 3/4 full with
liquid.
29
Practical tips
– You can thicken sauces in the steam
oven by adding flour and butter to
liquid (40 g flour and 40 g butter to
0.5 litres liquid).
– Grease perforated containers
beforehand if used for cooking fish,
and solid containers if used for
cooking dishes containing eggs.
– When cooking meat without adding
any additional liquid to the
container, the meat juices can be
used to for making gravy and
sauces. Put the meat and other
ingredients, e.g. vegetables, in a
perforated container. Place a solid
container underneath to catch the
juice.
– If you wish to add additional liquid
when cooking meat using Steam with
pressure °, it is very important not
to add too much liquid as this can
cause the container to boil over. If
necessary add liquid, e.g. stock,
after cooking.
– When using Steam with pressure
°, cooking will only take approx.
half the time it would take with
conventional cooking.
30
– With the Steam with pressure
°120 °C programme, during the
cooling down phase air will be
circulated around the cooking
compartment. This air can dislodge
food from the cooking container and
soil the cooking compartment. This
mostly occurs when food is being
cooked in liquid (soup, casseroles
etc) and also when the food has a
pulpy consistency, e.g. apple sauce.
When cooking these types of food,
cover the cooking container with the
tray or lid (see "Optional
accessories"). Place the covered
cooking container between the two
runners of the shelf level; do not
place it on top of the upper runner.
– When cooking fish or food with a
distinctive colour (e.g. spinach) in a
perforated container, place the
container on the lowest shelf level to
avoid any transfer of tastes or colour
to other food.
– Yeast dough can be put in the oven
to prove.
Select Steam without pressure P,
and reduce the recommended
temperature to 40 °C. Cover the
dough.

Practical tips
Frozen food can be defrosted in this
appliance in much less time than when
defrosting at room temperature.
^ Place the food to be defrosted in the
appliance.
^ Select the Defrost programme N.
^ Change the pre-set recommended
temperature if necessary (see chart) .
^ Set the duration (see chart).
^ Press the Start/Stop button.
Tips on defrosting
– All meat and poultry should be fully
defrosted before cooking. When
defrosting meat or poultry, place the
food in a perforated container and
place the solid container underneath
to catch the defrosted liquid, so that
the meat is not lying in this liquid. It is
particularly important to observe food
hygiene rules when defrosting
poultry. Do not use the liquid from
defrosted poultry. Pour it away and
wash the tray, the sink and your
hands.
Danger of salmonella!
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently thawed
to take herbs and seasoning.
Depending on the thickness of the
fish, 2-3 minutes should be enough.
– When defrosting food which has
frozen together, e.g. berries, chops,
fish fillets etc separate or break it up
about half-way through the defrosting
time.
– Allow food to stand at room
temperature at the end of defrosting.
This standing time (see chart) is
necessary to ensure that the food is
fully defrosted right through to the
core.
– Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.
– Defrost frozen pre-cooked meals
according to the manufacturer's
instructions.
– Defrost baked goods in a sealed
freezer bag.
– Food which will not drip can be
placed in a perforated container
once the wrapping has been
removed.
33
Practical tips
Cooking whole meals
It is very economical and practical to
cook a whole meal at the same time in
the steam oven.
In general, cooking durations will vary
according to the type of food. This
means that you will need to open the
steam oven at different times to add a
particular dish. Our test kitchen
recommends the following procedure,
as shown in this example using Steam
with pressure °:
Lamb stew
Potatoes
Carrots
8 minutes
8 minutes
4 minutes
Proceed as follows:
^ First place the food with the longest
cooking duration (the lamb stew and
the potatoes) in the steam oven.
^ Select Steam with pressure °
120 °C.
^ Calculate the initial cooking duration
by subtracting the duration for the
carrots from the duration for lamb
stew / potatoes, i.e. 8 minutes less 4
minutes = 4 minutes.
^ Set a duration of 4 minutes and press
the Start/Stop button.
^ Once the 4 minutes and also the
cooling down phase has elapsed,
place the second dish (carrots) in the
oven.
^ Set the cooking duration for the
second dish, i. e. 4 minutes.
^ Press the Start/Stop button.
34
At the end of the cooking duration you
can remove all three dishes at the same
time.
Blanching
You can use your steam oven to blanch
vegetables and fruit for freezing.
^ Put the prepared fruit or vegetables
into a perforated container and place
it in the oven.
^ Select Steam without pressure P
100 °C.
^ Set a time of 1-2 minutes.
^ Press the Start/Stop button.
^ Once blanched, plunge the
vegetables/fruit into ice cold water to
cool them down quickly. Drain them
well.
The vegetables/fruit can now be frozen.
Practical tips
Bottling
Proceed as follows:
When bottling, do not use
temperatures higher than 95 °C (or
90 °C if the appliance is installed at
altitudes higher than 1000 m above
sea level). Higher temperatures can
cause the jars to shatter. Danger of
injury.
^ Place the prepared jars (all the same
size) in a perforated container,
ensuring that they do not touch one
another.
Select Steam without pressure P for
bottling.

Practical tips
Extracting juice with steam
Useful tips
You can use the Steam with pressure
° programme to extract juice from
fruit and vegetables. It is best to use
very ripe fruit, as the riper the fruit the
greater the quantity of juice produced.
Very ripe fruit will also produce a more
intense flavour.
– Wash the fruit or vegetables to be
juiced and cut away any bruised or
damaged parts.

Proceed as follows:
^ Put the prepared fruit or vegetables

it in the steam oven.
^ Place a solid container underneath to
catch the juice.
^ Select Steam with pressure °
120 °C.
^ Set the duration (see chart).
^ Press the Start/Stop button.
36
– There is no need to remove pips from
fruit.
– Remove the stalks from grapes and
morello cherries as these are bitter.
The stalks do not need to be
removed from strawberries,
raspberries etc.
– Dice large fruit such as apples into
2 cm thick cubes. The firmer the fruit
or vegetables, the smaller it should
be diced.
– Try experimenting with mild and tart
flavours, for example, mix apples
with elderberries.
– Adding sugar will increase the
quantity of juice produced and
improve the flavour. Sprinkle the fruit
with sugar and leave to soak in for a
few hours before juicing. For sweet
fruit add 100 - 150 g of sugar and
more tart fruit, 150 - 200 g of sugar.
– Adding herbs will produce a more
intensely flavoured vegetable juice.
– If you wish to bottle the juice rather
than consume it straight away, pour it
whilst hot into hot, sterilised bottles
up to the rim and then seal immediately with sterilised rubber tops.
Practical tips
Disinfecting containers
Preparing yoghurt
The steam oven will disinfect baby
bottles and other containers so that at
the end of the programme they are as
germ free as they would have been had
they been boiled. Check beforehand
that all parts, teats etc. are declared by
the manufacturer to be heat resistant to
100 °C and also that they can withstand
hot steam.
^ To prepare yoghurt you will need
100 g yoghurt (with live culture) and
1 litre of milk. The yoghurt and milk
should have the same percentage fat
content.
^ Dismantle, clean and thoroughly
rinse baby bottles. Place the
individual parts in a perforated
cooking container, ensuring that they
do not touch one another. Cover the
cooking container with the tray or the
lid.
^ Select Steam without pressure
P100 °C.
^ Set and confirm a duration of
15 minutes.
All parts of the bottles must be
completely dry before they are
reassembled to keep them germ free.
You can either use unchilled long-life
milk or fresh milk. Fresh milk will,
however, give a better set. If using
fresh milk it should first be heated up to
90°C (do not boil it), and then left to
cool.
^ Mix the yoghurt and the milk together
and then pour the mixture into 6 or 7
portion sized glass jars or special
yoghurt jars. Seal the jars.
^ Place the jars in a perforated
container, ensuring that they do not
touch one another.
^ Select Steam without pressure P
and reduce the recommended
temperature to 40 °C.
^ Set a duration of 5 hours.
Allow the yoghurt to cool and then
place in the refrigerator. It will not
achieve its maximum set until it has
been thoroughly chilled.
37
Safety features
Normally, steam pressure and
temperature will be regulated
automatically by the appliance.
However, if a fault should occur, the
appliance is fitted with an overheating
protection device which protects
against the temperature rising too high.
The safety valve should be replaced
every 1-2 years, depending upon
frequency of use.
Pressure release / Safety valve
The safety valve and the pressure
release can operate individually,
simultaneously or one after the other.
If they are triggered, steam will be
released through the openings above
and below the door hinge.
Safety devices must not be altered
or tampered with.
^ Press the Start/Stop button.
^ Wait until the cooling down phase
has been completed (see
"Interrupting a programme").
^ Pull out the shelf.
^ Open the door.
38
Safety features
^ The pressure release mechanism
contains a small silicone washer
which rests in a holder. First check if
this washer has been forced out of its
holder. If this has happened, fit a
new washer into the holder inside the
appliance door (see "Accessories
supplied").
The steam oven can now be used
again in the normal way.
^ If the pressure release mechanism
has not been activated (i.e. the
silicone washer is still in its holder),
remove the safety valve from the
inside of the appliance door.
^ Press the metal pin of the safety
valve back in.
^ Insert the safety valve back into the
inside of the door. Make sure that the
seal fits correctly.
The steam oven can now be used
again in the normal way.
If the pressure release mechanism or
the safety valve trips again, contact the
Service department.
39
Safety features
Overheating protection
The overheating protection device is
located on the right-hand side of the
appliance underneath the On/Off
button. This switches the heating off
automatically if the temperature in the
steam generator gets too high. F27 will
appear in the programme/temperature
display and the cooling down phase
will begin.
The cooling down phase will be
completed in approx. 1 minute and
several beeps will sound. F27 will flash
in the programme/temperature display
for a short while and then three
horizontal bars - - - will appear. After a
while F20 will appear in the display.
Proceed as follows:
^ Switch the appliance off and open
the door.
^ Allow the appliance to cool down for
approx. 30 minutes.
F20 will disappear from the display
during this time.
40
^ Remove the overheating protection
device cover cap (see arrow). Use a
screwdriver or similar to press the
button underneath in again.
^ Replace the cover cap.

scratching. Scratches on glass
surfaces could even cause a
breakage.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the
outer surfaces.
To avoid damaging the surface of
your appliance, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– sharp metal scrapers.
Cleaning and care
Cooking containers and drain
filter
The cooking containers and drain filter
should be washed and dried each time
they are used.

43
Cleaning and care
Cooking compartment and
pull-out shelf
To remove the pull-out shelf:
The cooking compartment, the inside of
the appliance door and the pull-out
shelf should be cleaned and dried after
each use. Allow the appliance to cool
down to a safe temperature before
cleaning.
^ Unscrew the two thumb nuts a.
^ Pull the shelf out as far as possible.
^ Take the pull-out shelf off its runners
and then clean and dry it.
Most cooking residues can be removed
easily with a damp cloth and a mild
solution of hot water and washing-up
liquid.
In areas where the water is very hard, a
white deposit can build up on interior
walls. This can be removed with a little
vinegar on a damp cloth.
If the water supply in your area is very
hard, discolouration can occur on the
oven interior walls after prolonged use
of the appliance. These can be
removed using a proprietary citric acid
based descaling agent or with a
cleaning agent designed for use on
ceramic hobs and stainless steel.
These can be obtained from a good
retailer.
Wipe the cooking compartment and the
pull-out shelf with clean water, and then
rub dry.
If necessary, the pull-out shelf can be
removed completely for cleaning.
44
To replace the pull-out shelf:
^ Pull the two shelf runners out as far
as possible.
^ Push the shelf under the two holders
b, located at the back of the
runners.
^ Place the shelf on the two screws at
the front of the runners.
^ Then tighten the thumb nuts.
Cleaning and care
Shelf runners
To replace the runners:
It is helpful to remove the shelf runners
when you wish to give the oven a
thorough clean.
^ After cleaning, re-fit the runners by
placing the runner with the guide b
(at the front of the middle runner)
onto the loosened fixing screw.
To remove the runners:
^ Insert the eyelet, located at the rear
of the middle runner, on to the
protuding pin c in the rear wall of the

runners can then be removed quite
easily by pulling them towards you.
^ Tighten the screws again.
^ Clean the runners with a solution of
washing-up liquid or in the
dishwasher.
45
Cleaning and care
Water nozzle
During the cooling down phase, water
is sprayed into the cooking
compartment from a water nozzle which
is located behind the deflector plate at
the back of the runners on the right
hand side. With prolonged use, this
nozzle can become dirty and will
require descaling.
The nozzle must be descaled if the fault
message F13 appears in the display.
^ Descaling the nozzle using the
descaling agent supplied with the
appliance or with a suitable
proprietary descaling agent following
the instructions on the packaging.
After descaling rinse the nozzle under
fresh running water.
Before replacing the nozzle, all parts of
the appliance which carry water must
be flushed through.

appliance on. Select Steam without
pressure P.
^ Set a duration of 1 minute, and press
the Start/Stop button.
^ Wait until the cooling down phase
has been completed (see "At the end
of the cooking duration").
^ Then open the door and replace the
water nozzle and the shelf runners.
^ Wait until several beeps sound. Now
open the door and remove the food
which is cooking.
Take care as a large amount of
extremely hot steam may escape
when the door is opened. The food
will also be very hot.
^ Leave the appliance to cool down
with the door open.
^ Remove the runners on the
right-hand side (see "Shelf runners")
^ Pull out the nozzle.
46
The steam oven can now be used
again in the normal way.

the nozzle has been descaled, contact
the Service Department.
Cleaning and care
Descaling
,To prevent the risk of damage
only use the descaling agent
supplied with the appliance (see
"Accessories supplied").
Descaling must be carried out on a
cold appliance to prevent harmful
vapours forming.
The descaling agent is caustic.
Avoid contact with the skin and do
not inhale the vapours.
The appliance will alert you after a
certain number of operating hours that
the steam generator needs to be
descaled. When the appliance is
switched on the k symbol, the Descale
programme symbol k and the number
10 will appear in the
programme/temperature display.
If you do come into contact with
descaling agent it should be rinsed
off immediately with plenty of fresh
water. In the event of an adverse
reaction or if it has been inhaled or
ingested, seek medical help.
Replace the lid securely after use
and keep out of the reach of
children.
The number indicates that the
appliance can be used a further 10
times before it locks out. If the
appliance is not descaled immediately,
a 9 will appear in the display the next
time the appliance is switched on, and
so on.
Do not spill descaling agent on
metal surfaces. This could cause
marks. Any spillages should be
wiped away immediately.
The appliance will then lock and it must
be descaled before it can be used
again. We recommend that you descale
the appliance before it locks out.
The descaling process can only be
stopped by switching off the appliance.
If the appliance is switched back on,
after interrupting it, a rinse cycle will be
carried out automatically (see "Problem
solving guide").

e.g. glass or china, container.
^ Now fill the syringe with descaling
agent from the container, and inject
the contents of 1 syringe into the
opening.
^ Then fill the syringe with water and
inject the water into the opening. This
needs to be done twice.
You will then hear a beep and E02 will
appear in the programme/temperature
display. The machine is preparing itself
for the descaling procedure.
If you do not hear the beep, do not
inject any more water into the
system.
Wait for five minutes. If the beep still
does not sound you should switch
the machine off and then back on
again (see "Problem solving guide").
Cleaning and care
When the appliance is ready to begin
the descaling process, a beep will
sound and E03 will appear in the
programme/temperature display.
After descaling:
^ Now fill the syringe with descaling
agent from the container, and inject
the contents of 2 syringes into the
opening.
^ Switch off the appliance.
^ Then fill the syringe with water and
inject the water into the opening. This
needs to be done twice.
You will then hear a beep and E04 will
appear in the programme/temperature
display. A descaling duration of 30
minutes will appear in the time display.
This time cannot be altered.
The descaling process will now begin.
A beep will sound when the descaling
process reaches the draining and
rinsing stages and E05 to E07 will
appear in the display.
When the descaling process has
finished a beep will sound and E08 will
appear in the programme/temperature
display. 3 zeros and a flashing g
symbol will appear in the time display.
^ Pull out the shelf.
^ Open the door.
^ Wipe out the cooking compartment
with a mild solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid or a little vinegar
and water and then dry it with a cloth.
^ Dry the descaling agent opening to
avoid a build-up of encrustations.
^ Leave the door open to allow the
compartment to dry out thoroughly.
^ Close the stopcock to avoid any risk
of water damage.
^ Push the shelf back in again.
If there is any descaling agent left in the
container, use the syringe to put it back
into the bottle.
Wash the container thoroughly.
