Before the First Use
Remove all packaging, both inside and
outside the oven, before using the
appliance.
Before first use, the oven should be heated without
food. During this time, an unpleasant odour may be
emitted. This is quite normal.
☞
1. Switch the oven function control knob to
conventional cooking .
2. Set the thermostat control knob to MAX.
3. Open a window for ventilation.
4. Allow the oven to run empty for
approximately 45 minutes.
This procedure should be repeated with the grill
function for approximately 5-10 minutes.
7
Using the Conventional Oven
When using this setting, heat comes from both the top
and bottom elements. This allows you to cook in a
single level and is particularly suitable for dishes
which require extra base browning such as pizzas,
quiches and flans.
Gratins, lasagnes and hotpots which require extra top
browning also cook well in the conventional oven.
This form of cooking gives you the opportunity to
cook without the fan in operation.
The oven has fourteen shelf levels, and is supplied
with two shelves. It is important that these shelves are
correctly positioned as shown in the diagram.
☞ How to Use the
Conventional Oven
1. Turn the oven function control knob to .
2. Turn the thermostat control to the required
temperature.
THINGS TO NOTE
●
The oven light will come on when the oven
function control knob is set.
●
The thermostat control light will remain on until
the correct temperature is reached. It will then
cycle on and off to show how the temperature is
being maintained.
Top oven element only
This function is suitable for finishing cooked dishes,
eg; lasagne, shepherds pie, cauliflower cheese etc.
Bottom oven element only
This function is particularly useful when blind-baking
pastry or cooking pizza.
Condensation and steam
When food is heated it produces steam in the same
way as a boiling kettle. The oven is vented to allow
some of this steam to escape. However, always stand
back from the cooker when opening the oven door to
allow any build up of steam or heat to release.
If the steam comes into contact with a cool surface on
the outside of the oven, e.g. a trim, it will condense
and produce water droplets. This is quite normal and
is not caused by a fault on the oven.
To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away
condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
8
The cooling fan
During cooking the cooling fan will cycle ON and
OFF. This is quite normal.
It may run on after the oven is switched off to keep
the controls cool.
NOTE
The action of the cooling fan will depend on how
long the oven has been used and at what temperature.
It may not switch in at all at lower temperature
settings nor run on where the oven has only been
used for a short time.
i Hints and Tips
The middle shelf position allows for the best heat
distribution. To increase base browning simply lower
the shelf position. To increase top browning, raise the
shelf position.
The material and finish of the baking trays and
dishes used will affect base browning. Enamelware,
dark, heavy or non-stick utensils increase base
browning, while oven glassware, shiny aluminium or
polished steel trays reflect the heat away and give less
base browning.
Always place dishes centrally on the shelf to ensure
even browning.
Stand dishes on suitably sized baking trays to prevent
spillage onto the base of the oven and make cleaning
easier.
Do not place dishes, tins or baking trays directly on
the oven base as it becomes very hot and damage will
occur.
For faster preheating use the fan oven function to
preheat the oven until the oven indicator neon goes
out, then swich the selector to the conventional oven
setting.
Single level cooking gives best results. If you require
more than one level cooking use the fan oven
function.

Using the Fan Oven
The air inside the oven is heated by the element
around the fan situated behind the back panel. The
fan circulates hot air to maintain an even temperature
inside the oven.
The advantages of cooking with this function are:
✓ Faster Preheating
As the fan oven quickly reaches temperature, it is
not usually necessary to preheat the oven
although you may find that you need to allow an
extra 5-7 minutes on cooking times. For recipes
which require higher temperatures, best results
are achieved if the oven is preheated first, e.g.
bread, pastries, scones, souffles, etc.
✓ Lower Temperatures
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower
temperatures than conventional cooking.
Follow the temperatures recommended in the
chart at page. 11 or remember to reduce
temperatures by about 20-25°C for your own
recipes which use conventional cooking.
✓ Even Heating for Baking
The fan oven has uniform heating on all runner
positions. This means that batches of the same
food can be cooked in the oven at the same time.
However, the top shelf may brown slightly
quicker that the lower one.
This is quite usual. There is no mixing of flavours
between dishes.

Cookware
Baking trays, oven dishes, etc. should not be placed
directly against the grid covering the fan at the back
of the oven, or placed on the oven base.
Do not use baking trays larger than 30 cm x 35 cm
(12 in x 14 in) as they will restrict the circulation of
heat and may affect performance.
12
The effects of dishes on cooking results
Dishes and tins vary in their thickness, conductivity,
colour, etc. which affects the way they transmit heat
to the food inside them:
A Aluminium, earthenware, oven glassware and
bright shiny utensils reduce cooking and
underneath browning.
B Enamelled cast iron, anodized aluminium,
aluminium with non-stick interior and coloured
exterior and dark, heavy utensils increase cooking
and underneath browning.
i Hints and Tips
Runner positions are not critical, but make sure the
shelves are evenly spread.
When cooking more than one dish in the fan oven,
place dishes centrally on the shelves rather than
several dishes on one shelf.
When the oven is full, you may need to allow slightly
longer cooking time.
A shelf may be placed on the floor of the oven. Place
dishes on a shelf in this position rather than on the
oven base, to allow air circulation around the food.
When the oven is full of the same food, e.g. equal
trays of small cakes or equal size victoria sandwich
cakes, then they will be cooked in the same time and
removed from the oven together. When different
sizes of trays or types of food, e.g. biscuits and cakes
are cooked, they will not necessarily be ready
together.
The fan oven can be used to heat foods through
without thawing first, e.g. fruit tarts, mince pies,
sausage rolls, and other small pastry items. Use a
temperature of 190-200°C and allow 20-40 minutes
(depending on the quantity of food in the oven).
The use of too high temperatures can cause uneven
browning. Check with the recommendations for oven
temperatures given in the cooking charts, but be
prepared to adjust the temperature by 10°C if
necessary. Remember to reduce temperatures by
about 20-25°C for your own conventional recipes.
When roasting do use the trivet in the meat tin. Fat
and meat juices will drain into the meat tin below and
can be used to make gravy. The trivet also prevents
splashes of fat from soiling the oven interior.
The meat tin should not be placed on a heated
hotplate as this may cause the enamel to crack.
13
Defrosting
i Hints and Tips
The oven fan operates without heat and circulates the
air, at room temperature, inside the oven. This
increases the speed of defrosting. However, please
note that the temperature of the kitchen will influence
the speed of defrosting.
This function is particularly suitable for delicate food
which could be damaged by heat, e.g. cream filled
gateaux, iced cakes, pastries, bread and other yeast
products.
• Cover food with a lid, aluminium foil or plastic
film to prevent drying out during defrosting.
• ALWAYS COOK THOROUGHLY
IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAWING.
• Frozen food should be placed in a single layer
when ever possible and turned over half way
through the defrosting process.
• Only joints of meat and poultry up to 2 kg. (4 lb.)
are suitable for defrosting in this way.
☞ How to Use Defrosting
1. Turn the oven function control knob to
.
2. Ensure the thermostat control knob is in the OFF
position.
Refer to the following table for approximate
defrosting times.

14
Grilling
Grilling must be carried out with the oven
door closed. The grill pan handles must be
removed from the pan.
☞ How to Use the Grill
1. Turn the oven control function knob on .
2. Turn the thermostat control knob on the required
temperature.
3. Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to
allow for different thicknesses of food. Position
the food close to the element for faster cooking
and further away for more gentle cooking.
Preheat the grill on a full setting for a few minutes
before sealing steaks or toasting. Adjust the heat
setting and the shelf as necessary, during cooking
During cooking, the cooling fan and the thermostat
control light will operate in the same way as
described for the fan oven function.
i Hints and Tips
- Most foods should be placed on the grid in the grill
pan to allow maximum circulation of air to lift the
food out of the fats and juices. Food such as fish,
liver and kidneys may be placed directly on the grill
pan, if preferred
- Food should be thoroughly dried before grilling to
minimise splashing. Brush lean meats and fish lightly
with a little oil or melted butter to keep them moist
during cooking
- Accompaniments such as tomatoes and mushrooms
may be placed underneath the grid when grilling
meats
- When toasting bread, we suggest that the top runner
position is used with the grid in its 'high' position
OI L
- The food should be turned over during cooking, as
required.
The grill element is controlled by the thermostat.
During cooking, the grill cycles on and off to
prevent overheating.
15
☞ How to Use the Inner Grill
Element
The inner grill provides quick direct heat to
the central area of the grill pan. By using the
inner grill element for cooking small
quantities, it can help to save energy.
1. Turn the oven control function knob on .
2. Turn the thermostat control knob on the required
temperature.
3. Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to
allow for different thicknesses of food an follow
the instructions for grilling.
☞ How to Use the Thermal Grill
Thermal grill offers an alternative method of cooking
food items normally associated with conventional
grilling. The grill element and the oven fan operate
alternately, circulating hot air around the food. The
need to check and turn the food is reduced. Thermal
grill helps to minimize cooking smells in the kitchen.
With the exception of toast and rare steaks, you can
thermally grill all the foods you would normally cook
under a conventional grill. Cooking is more gentle,
therefore food generally takes a little longer to cook
with thermal grilling compared with conventional
grilling. One of the advantages is that larger loads
can be cooked at the same time.
1. Turn the oven control function knob on .
2. Turn the thermostat control knob on the required
temperature. Select a maximum temperature of
200°C.
3. Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to
allow for different thicknesses of food an follow
the instructions for grilling.
16
i Hints and Tips
Prepare foods in the same way as for conventional
grilling. Brush lean meats and fish lightly with o little
oil or butter to keep them moist during cooking.
If thermally grilling on more than one level, it may be
necessary to interchange the food on the shelves
during cooking.
A general guide to cooking times is given below but
these times may vary slightly depending on the
thickness and quantity of food being cooked.

Cleaning the Oven
Before cleaning always allow the cooling
fan to cool the cooker down before
switching off at the electricity supply.
The oven should be kept clean at all times.
A build-up of fats or other foodstuffs could
result in a fire, especially in the grill pan.
Cleaning materials
Before using any cleaning materials on your oven,
check that they are suitable and that their use is
recommended by the manufacturer.
Cleaners that contain bleach should NOT be used as
they may dull the surface finishes. Harsh abrasives
should also be avoided.
External cleaning
Regularly wipe over the control panel, oven door and
door seal using a soft cloth well wrung out in warm
water to which a little liquid detergent has been
added.
To prevent damaging or weakening the
door glass panels avoid the use of the
following:
• Household detergent and bleaches
• Impegnated pads unsuitable for nonstick saucepans
• Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
• Chemical oven pads or aerosols
• Rust removers
• Bath/Sink stain removers
Clean the outer and inner door glass using hot soapy
water. Should the ineer door glass become heavily
soiled it is recommended that a cleaning such as Hob
Brite is used.
If the door glass panel becomes chipped or
has deep scratches, the glass will be
weakened and must be replaced to prevent
the possibility of the panel shattering.
Contact your local Service Centre who will
be pleased to advise further.
18
Oven Cavity
The enamelled back panel and the base of the oven
cavity are best cleaned whilst the oven is still warm.
Wipe the oven over with a soft cloth soaked in warm
soapy water after each use. From time to time it will
be necessary to do a more thorough cleaning, using a
proprietary oven cleaner.
Oven Shelves and Shelf Supports
To clean the oven shelves and the shelf supports,
soak in warm soapy water and remove stubborn
marks with a well wetted soap impregnated pad.
Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.
The shelf supports can be removed for easy cleaning
(see diagram). Please, ensure the retaining nuts are
secure when refitting the shelf support.
Grease Filter
To prevent a build-up of fats on the fan impellor, the
grease filter must be fitted by clipping it over the
vents in the back panel. Do not use abrasive materials
to clean the seal. The grease filter is dishwasher
proof.
To clean the grease filter
When cooking is completed and the oven has cooled
down, remove the filter by pushing the protruding
tongue on the filter upward, and wash carefully.
Remember to refit the filter before using the oven
again.

Care of catalytic liners
Catalytic liners destroy splashes of food and fats
when the oven temperature is raised to around 220°C.
To aid this process it is a good idea to run the oven
for an hour or two per week, without food, to ensure
continued good performance from the Catalytic
liners.
i Hints and Tips
• Manual cleaning of the Catalytic liner is not
recommended. Damage will occur if soap
impregnated steel wool pads, aerosol cleaners and
any other abrasives are used.
• Slight discolouration and polishing of the Catalytic
surface may occur in time. This does not affect the
Catalytic properties in any way.
• Follow the recommendations below to keep oven
soilage to a minimum.
Cooking to reduce soilage
Cook at the recommended temperatures. Higher
temperatures during roasting will increase soilage.
Try cooking to lower temperatures for an increased
length of time, you will save energy and often the
joint is more tender.
Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when roasting
meat; potatoes only require brushing with fat before
cooking. Extra fat in the oven during roasting will
increase splashing and soilage.
It is NOT necessary to add water to the meat tin
when roasting. The water and the fat juices from the
joint create excessive splattering during cooking,
even at normal temperatures, as well as causing
condensation.
Covering joints during cooking will also prevent
splashing onto the interior surfaces; removing the
covering for the last 20-30 minutes will allow extra
browning, if required. Some large joints and turkeys
especially benefit by this method of cooking,
allowing the joint to cook through before the outside
is overbrowned.
Do use the trivet in the roasting tin. During roasting,
the fat from the joint will be contained beneath the
trivet and therefore prevent it from splattering onto
the 'Catalytic' liner.

Cleaning the hinged grill
This model has been fitted with a hinged top grill
element to enable you to clean the roof of the oven
easily.
Before proceeding ensure the oven is isolated from
the electricity supply. Then undo the screw which
holds the grill in place (see diagram beside).
FO 0781
Then gently pull the grill downward to allow access
to the oven roof (see diagram beside).
Clean the oven roof with a suitable clener and wipe
dry before replacing the hinged grill element.
Gently push up the grill element into place and
firmly screw into place the holding nut.
NOTE: Ensure the grill holding nut is
firmly in place to avoid the grill falling
down during operation.
