Before using the appliance
Rating plate
This is situated on the lower front frame of
the appliance and can be seen upon
opening the door. Alternatively the rating
plate may also be found on the back or top
of some models (where applicable).
The appliance must be protected by a
suitably rated fuse or circuit breaker. The
rating of the appliance is given on the rating
plate.
Do not remove the rating plate from the
appliance as this may invalidate the
guarantee.
Preparing to use your
appliance
Wipe over the base of the oven(s) with a soft
cloth and hot soapy water and wash the
furniture before use. We suggest that you
run the oven(s) and grill for 10 – 15 minutes
at maximum temperature, to burn off any
residue from their surfaces. Accessible parts
may become hotter than in normal use.
Children should be kept away. During this
period an odour may be emitted, it is
therefore advisable to open a window for
ventilation.
The cooling fan for the
controls
The cooling fan comes on immediately when
the grill/second oven is switched on and
after a short time when the main oven is in
use. It runs on after the controls are
switched off until the appliance has cooled.
During the initial period the cooling fan may
turn ON and OFF, this is quite normal.
Always allow the cooling fan to
cool the appliance down before
switching off at the wall prior to
carrying out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
Control panel indicator
neon(s)
The indicator neon will operate when the grill
(where applicable) or oven(s) is switched on.
The indicator neon will glow. It may turn on
and off during use to show that the setting is
being maintained. If the neon does not
operate as the instructions indicate the
controls have been incorrectly set. Return
all controls to zero and reset following the
instructions for the required setting.
Condensation and steam
When food is heated it produces steam
similar to a boiling kettle. The vents allow
some of this steam to escape.
However, always stand back from the
appliance when opening the door(s) 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 appliance, e.g.
a trim, it will condense and produce water
droplets. This is quite normal and is not
caused by a fault on the appliance.
To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe
away condensation and also soilage from
surfaces.
For your safety wall coverings at the rear of
the appliance should be securely fixed to the
wall.
7
Cookware
Baking trays, dishes etc., should not be
placed directly against the grid covering the
fan at the back of the oven.
Do not use baking trays larger than 30cm x
35cm (12” x 14”) as they will restrict the
circulation of heat and may affect
performance.
Grill and oven furniture
The following items of grill and oven furniture
have been supplied with the appliance.
1 grill pan
1 grill pan handle
1 grill pan grid
1 straight shelf
(for grilling and
second oven cooking)
2 straight shelves
(for fan oven
cooking)

commercially prepared food is well
within its use by date and that home
prepared food is fresh and of good
quality.
When cooking is complete, do not
leave food to stand in the oven, but
remove and cool it quickly if the food is
not to be consumed immediately.
Always ensure food in the oven has
been covered before cooking if it is not
possible to remove food immediately
after cooking.
13
The ceramic hob
Do not use the appliance if the
ceramic glass is damaged. If a
fault or crack becomes visible
during cooking, disconnect the
appliance immediately from the
electricity supply and contact
your local Service Force Centre.
Using the hob

Only saucepans with flat bases and close
fitting lids are recommended. The saucepan
base should be approximately the same size
as the cooking area. Ensure that new
saucepans are well scrubbed to remove
edges and take off any deposits left from
manufacture.
Traditional round bottomed Woks must not
be used even with a stand. Woks with flatbottomed bases are available and do comply
with the above recommendations.

• To operate the dual hotplate, turn the
control knob clockwise for the full area or
anti-clockwise for the centre section.
• The inner section is very economical
when cooking with small diameter
saucepans.
• For single hotplates, turn the control
knob in either direction to vary the heat
setting. The highest number represents
the hottest setting and the lowest
number represents the coolest setting.
• This model has the added feature of two
Rapid power zone hotplates which
react more quickly than the other
ceramic hotplates and are easily
identified by their instant red glow.
Some switching ON and OFF when cooking
at high temperatures, e.g. deep fat frying is
quite normal, causes no damage to the hob
and little delay in cooking times.
Excessive switching may however be
caused by the use of an unsuitable
saucepan or a saucepan which is smaller
than the heated area. If excessive switching
occurs, discontinue use of the saucepan.
Hints and tips
• Lift, rather than slide saucepans on and
off the hob. This will reduce the risk of
scratches and metal marks from
saucepans with aluminium bases. Metal
marks can be easily cleaned off
providing they are not allowed to burn
on.
• Follow any guidelines provided by the
saucepan manufacturer, particularly
those relating to recommended heat
settings.
• Avoid using thin, badly dented or
distorted saucepans. Those with uneven
bases should not be used.
• Never leave the hotplates ON when not
covered with a saucepan.
• Ensure that the hob and saucepans are
clean and dry before the start of cooking
to reduce cleaning.
• Follow the cleaning instructions very
closely to keep the hob looking like new.
• If spillage occurs with sugar
solutions, e.g. jams and syrups, it
must be wiped from the hob before it
sets and becomes hard otherwise
damage to the hob will occur.
Hot hob indicator
The ceramic hob is fitted with a hot hob
indicator light which illuminates when the
hob is too hot to touch. The light will go OFF
when the hob has cooled.
15
The dual grill
CAUTION – Accessible parts may
be hot when the grill is in use.
Young children should be kept
away.
The grill is a dual circuit grill which means
that the full area of the grill can be used or
for economy purposes, the centre section
only can be used when cooking smaller
quantities of food.
Using the grill
Things to note
• The cooling fan for the controls may
operate after a time.
• Some smoke from fat splashes may be
evident as the grill cleans itself.
• To ensure optimal cooking performance
the elements have been carefully
designed, so that only the inner element
glows red. The outer element is hot, but
will remain dark in colour. This gives you
the best possible cooking results.
Never cover the grill pan or grid
with foil as this can lead to grill
fires.

The grill pan and handle
The grill pan is supplied with a removable
handle.
To insert the handle, press the button on the
handle with the thumb and pivot slightly
upwards inserting the lip into the widest part
of the bracket. Move the handle towards the
left, lower into position and release the
button.
Ensure the handle is properly
located.
To remove the handle, press the button on
the handle with the thumb and pivot the
handle slightly upwards and towards the
right to remove from the bracket.
Protect
your
hands
when
removing the grill pan handle.
Always remove the grill pan
handle during grilling.
To check the progress of the food being
grilled, the grill pan should be withdrawn on
the shelf to attend to food during cooking.
17
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.
• Adjust grid and grill pan runner position
to allow for different thicknesses of
foods.
• 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 use the shelf in
position 1 with the grid in the high
position.
• Preheat the grill on a full setting for five
minutes before cooking. Adjust the heat
setting and shelf as necessary during
cooking.
• The food should be turned over during
cooking as required.
• When using the centre section of the
dual grill, ensure the food is positioned
centrally on the grill pan grid in the grill
pan.

The second oven
The second oven is the smaller of the two
ovens. It is heated by elements in the top
oven and bottom of the oven. It is designed
for cooking smaller quantities of food. It
gives especially good results if used to cook
fruit cakes, sweet or savoury flans or quiche.
The second oven is also ideal for use as a
warming compartment to warm dishes and
keep food hot. Use the lowest setting on the
second oven temperature control.
Using the second oven
Things to note
•
The cooling fan for the controls may
operate after a time.
•
The indicator neon will glow. It may
turn ON and OFF during use to show
that the setting is being maintained.
Do not place dishes, tins and trays
directly on the oven base as it
becomes very hot and damage will
occur.
To fit the second oven shelf
The shelf should be fitted with the straight
rods uppermost on the frame and the forms
towards the back of the oven. If not fitted
correctly the anti-tilt and safety stop
mechanism will be affected.

•
Hints and tips
Arrange the shelves in the required
positions before switching the oven on.
Shelf positions are counted from the
bottom upwards.
•
There should always be at least 2.5cm
(1”) between the top of the food and the
element. This gives best cooking
results and allows room for rise in yeast
mixtures, Yorkshire puddings, etc.
When cooking cakes, pastry, scones,
bread, etc., place the tins or baking
trays centrally on the shelf.
•
Ensure that food is placed centrally on
the shelf and there is sufficient room
around the baking tray/dish to allow for
maximum circulation.
•
Stand dishes on a suitably sized baking
tray on the shelf to prevent spillage onto
the oven base and to help reduce
cleaning.
•
The material and finish of the baking
tray and dishes used affect base
browning. Enamelware, dark, heavy or
non-stick utensils increase base
browning. Shiny aluminium or polished
steel trays reflect the heat away and
give less base browning.
•
Because of the smaller cooking space,
lower temperatures and shorter cooking
times are sometimes required.
•
Do not place dishes directly onto the
oven base as it becomes very hot and
damage may occur.
•
For economy leave the door open for
the shortest possible time, particularly
when placing food into a pre-heated
oven.
Do not place cookware and cooking
pots with rough bases e.g. cast iron
on the oven door as damage to the
glass may occur.
21
The main oven
The fan oven is particularly suitable for
cooking larger quantities of food. The
advantages of fan oven cooking are:
Preheating
The fan oven quickly reaches its
temperature, so it is not usually necessary to
preheat the oven.
Without preheating
however, you may need to add an extra 5 –
10 minutes on the recommended cooking
times. For recipes needing high
temperatures, e.g. bread, pastries, scones,
soufflés etc., best results are achieved if the
oven is preheated first. For best results
when cooking frozen or cooked chilled ready
meals always preheat the oven first.
Cooking temperatures
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower
temperatures than conventional cooking.
Follow the temperatures recommended in
the cooking chart. As a guide reduce
temperatures by about 20°C – 25°C for your
own recipes, using a conventional oven.
Batch baking
The fan oven cooks evenly on both shelf
levels, especially useful when batch baking.

To fit the main oven shelves
The shelves should be fitted with the straight
rods uppermost on the frame and the forms
towards the back of the oven. If not fitted
correctly the anti-tilt and safety stop
mechanism will be affected.
Hints and tips
• Arrange the shelves in the required
positions before switching the oven on.
Shelf positions are numbered from the
bottom upwards.
• When cooking more than one dish in the
oven, place dishes centrally on different
shelves rather than cluster several
dishes on one shelf, this will allow the
heat to circulate freely for the best
cooking results.
• When batch baking one type of food,
e.g. Victoria sandwich cakes, those of
similar size will be cooked in the same
time.
• It is recommended that when baking
larger quantities the shelf positions
should be evenly spaced to suit the load
being cooked. A slight increase in
cooking time may be necessary.
• Do not place baking trays directly on the
oven base as it interferes with the oven
air circulation and can lead to base
burning; use the lower shelf position.
Do not place cookware and cooking
pots with rough bases e.g. cast iron
on the oven door as damage to the
glass may occur.

The roasting temperatures and times given in the chart should be adequate for most joints, but
slight adjustments may be required to allow for personal requirements and the shape and texture
of the meat. However, lower temperatures and longer cooking times are recommended for less
tender cuts or larger joints.
Wrap joints in foil if preferred, for extra browning uncover for the last 20 – 30 min. cooking time.

Defrost feature
This function defrosts most foods faster than
more conventional methods. It is particularly
suitable for delicate frozen foods which are
to be served cold e.g. cream filled gateaux,
cakes covered with icings or frostings,
cheesecakes, biscuits, scones, etc.
Using defrost feature
• Turn the main oven temperature control
to the defrost setting.
Things to note
• The oven fan and interior light will come
on.
Hints and tips
• Place the frozen food in a single layer
where possible and turn it over half way
through the defrosting process.
• The actual speed of defrosting is
influenced by room temperature. On
warm days defrosting will be faster than
on cooler days.

It is preferable to thaw fish, meat and
poultry slowly in the fridge. However,
this process can be accelerated by
using the defrost function. Small or thin
fish fillets, frozen peeled prawns, cubed
or minced meat, liver, thin chops,
steaks etc., can be thawed in 1 – 2
hours.
•
A 1kg/2¼lb oven ready chicken will be
thawed in approximately 5 hours.
Remove the giblets as soon as possible
during the thawing process.
•
Joints of meat up to 2kg/4½lb in weight
can be thawed using the defrost
function.
•
All joints of meat and poultry must be
thawed thoroughly before cooking.
•
Always cook thoroughly immediately
after thawing.
•
Do not leave food at room temperature
once it is defrosted. Cook raw food
immediately or store cooked food in the
fridge, once it has cooled.
•
Care must always be taken when
handling foods in the home. Always
follow the basic rules of food hygiene to
prevent bacterial growth and cross
contamination
when
defrosting,
preparing, cooking, cooling and freezing
foods.
27
Care and cleaning
Before cleaning always allow the
appliance to cool down.
Cleaning materials
Before using any cleaning materials on your
appliance, 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 must also be avoided.
Multi-surface anti-bacterial cleaning products
should not be used on the ceramic hob or on
the surrounding trims.
Cleaning the outside of the
appliance
Do not use abrasive cleaning materials e.g.
Hob Brite, Brillo pads or scourers on painted
or printed finishes as damage may occur.
Regularly wipe over the control panel, doors
and appliance sides using a soft cloth and
hot soapy water. To prevent streaking finish
with a soft cloth.
Stainless Steel cream cleaners are abrasive
and should be avoided as they may dull the
surface finish. Any spillage on the
stainless steel finish must be wiped off
immediately.
Do not attempt to remove any of the
control knobs from the appliance as
this may cause damage and is a
safety hazard.
28
Cleaning the control knobs
and handles
It is strongly recommended that only hot
soapy water is used for cleaning the control
knobs and handles. ANY OTHER
CLEANING MATERIALS MAY DULL THE
SURFACE FINISH.
Cleaning the ceramic hob
Make sure the ceramic glass is cool before
cleaning. It is important to clean the ceramic
hob daily to prevent soilage being burnt on.
Take care to avoid the hob trims when
cleaning the ceramic glass as they may be
damaged by the cleaning agents
recommended.
Daily cleaning
Use the recommended Hob Brite Cleaner
daily. If soilage is not allowed to burn on it
will be much easier to clean off.
1.
Apply a small amount of Hob Brite in
the centre of each area to be cleaned.
2.
Dampen a clean paper towel or a
plastic pad made specially for non-stick
saucepans and rub vigorously until all
marks are removed. This may take a
few minutes.
3.
Wipe off residues of cleaner with
another damp paper towel and polish
dry with a soft cloth.
If Hob Brite is unavailable, one or more of
the cleaning agents below may be used
temporarily:
a)
b)
Cif Cream Cleaner
Baking Soda
29
To remove more stubborn
marks
1.
Bar Keepers Friend may be used to
clean off more stubborn stains or to
remove discolourations.
It may be necessary to rub the marks
hard for several minutes.
2.
Use a plastic pad specially for non-stick
saucepans with Bar-Keepers Friend for
removal of more stubborn soilage.
To remove burnt on soilage
We strongly recommend the use of a
Ceramic Hob Scraper (incorporating a single
edge razor blade) to remove spillage on the
hob, in particular sugar solutions, which if
not removed can cause permanent damage.
1.
Make sure the ceramic glass is cool.
2.
Use a ceramic hob scraper with care at
an angle of 30° to remove as much
soilage as possible.
3.
Use Bar-Keepers Friend or Hob Brite to
finish off as directed above.
To remove discolourations or
white and silver marks
These marks sometimes give the impression
of being in or underneath the hob glass.
They can almost always be removed
provided they have not become excessively
burnt on. Follow the instructions above
under ‘To Remove more Stubborn Marks’.
If this is unsuccessful, make up a paste of
one part water to three parts Cream of Tarter
and leave on the discoloured areas
overnight. The marks should be easily
removable the next day provided they have
not been excessively burnt on. The paste
should be thoroughly washed off afterwards.
30
Hints and tips
To reduce hob soilage:
•
Make sure the bottom of the saucepan
and the cooking area are clean and dry
before cooking begins.
•
Ensure saucepans are large enough to
accommodate food to avoid boil overs.
•
If possible, wipe up spills and splatters
as they occur, but take care to avoid
steam burns.
•
Avoid using a dishcloth or sponge to
clean the hob. These may leave a layer
of soiled detergent on the hob surface
which will burn and discolour the next
time the hob is used.
•
Avoid the use of:
•
Household
bleaches.
•
Impregnated plastic or nylon pads
that are not described as
suitable for non-stick saucepans.
•
Brillo pads, Ajax pads, steel wool
pads.
•
Chemical oven cleaners,
aerosols and oven pads.
•
Rust stain, bath and sink stain
removers.
detergents
and
e.g.
•
Any of the above products may
cause damage to the hob.
•
It is dangerous to mix different
cleaning products. The chemicals in
them may react with each other with
hazardous results.
•
Soilage from sugar solutions must
be removed from the hob before the
syrup has set otherwise damage to
the hob surface will occur.
•
Avoid placing plastic items, foil or
dishes on the hot surface as this will
cause damage to the hob.
31
Cleaning the shelves and
grill/oven furniture
All removable parts, can be washed in the
dishwasher.
The grill pan, grill pan grid and oven shelves
may be cleaned using a soap impregnated
steel wool pad. Soaking first in hot soapy
water will make cleaning easier.
Cleaning inside the oven(s)
The sides and back of the grill/second oven
and main oven compartments are coated
with a special Stayclean coating. They
should not be cleaned manually.
The vitreous enamel main oven base and
grill/second oven base can be cleaned using
normal oven cleaners with care. Ensure that
the manufacturers instructions are followed
and that all parts are well rinsed afterwards.
Aerosol cleaners must not come
into contact with elements, the door
seal, or any painted finishes as this
may cause damage.
Hints and tips
Aerosol cleaners must not be used
on Stayclean surfaces.
To carry out the cleaning cycle remove the
oven shelves and set the oven to 220°C.
It is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or
two per week to ensure continued good
performance from the Stayclean finish.
Slight discolouration and polishing of the
Stayclean surfaces may occur in time. This
DOES NOT affect the Stayclean properties in
any way.
32
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 a 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
over-browned.
Cleaning the door(s)
To prevent damaging or weakening
the door glass panels avoid the use
of the following:
• Household detergents and
bleaches
• Impregnated pads
unsuitable for non-stick
saucepans
• Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool
pads
• Chemical oven pads or aerosols
• Rust removers
• Bath/Sink stain removers
Cleaning between the outer
and inner door glass
The outer door glass is removable for
cleaning.
To remove the outer glass

5.
Open the oven door slightly to gain
access to the two cross head screws on
the top of the oven door.
Loosen the two screws using a Pozidrive
screwdriver.
Hold the door glass securely in place
with one hand before removing the
screws completely with the other hand.
Using both hands, gently tilt the top of
the door glass towards you, lift slightly to
disengage the locators from the two
bottom brackets.
Clean the outer and inner glass using hot
soapy water or Hob Brite cleaner may be
used. DO NOT use Hob Brite on the
Stainless Steel or painted finishes. DO
NOT try to clean the foil which is inside
the door. The foil is there to help keep
the door cool, if it is damaged it will not
work. Ensure that all parts are well
rinsed and thoroughly dried before
attempting to replace the outer door.
33
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. Please
contact your local Service Force
Centre who will be pleased to
advise further.

the oven door, ensuring the screw
location holes line up.
Hold the glass in place with one hand
and insert the cross head screws into
the location holes with the other hand.
Give the screws one turn to ensure the
glass is secure.
Tighten the screws positively with a
Pozidrive screwdriver before closing the
oven door.
Do not attempt to use the oven
without the glass being in place.
To clean the inner glass door
panels
Clean the inner glass door panels using a
soft cloth and hot water to which a little
washing up liquid has been added. If the
inner panel is heavily soiled, Hob Brite may
be used. Do not use abrasive cleaning
materials on the door glass. Ensure that all
parts are well rinsed and thoroughly dried
before attempting to replace the glass.
34
Replacing an oven light bulb
The type of bulb required is a 300°C 25 watt
small Edison Screw.
Disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply before replacing
the bulb.
Open the door and remove the shelves to
enable easy access to the oven light
assembly. Insert a flat blade screwdriver
between the oven side and glass which
covers the bulb.
Support the glass with your hand and prise
out sufficiently to release the glass cover.
Unscrew the bulb in an anticlockwise
direction until it is possible to remove the
bulb with ease.
Fit the new bulb by turning in a clockwise
direction until it is secure. Ensuring the
indent to the flange is pointing to the rear of
the oven, replace the glass by pushing it
firmly into the hole to cover the bulb
assembly.
Replace the shelves. Restore the electricity
supply and adjust the time of day and clock
as necessary.
