Use of Hotplates
Ceramic Hob
Note:
Under no circumstances should the hob be used
with aluminium foil in contact with the hob surface.
The controls set the hotplates at six pre-set power
levels. Each control can be used to select one of six
temperature settings from a minimum at position 1
to a maximum at position 6.
Do Not leave a hotplate switched on without a pan
as this wastes energy and may shorten the life of
the hotplate.

2. Never fill the pan more than one-third full of oil.
3. Never leave oil or fat unattended during the
heating or cooking period.
4. Never try to fry too much food at a time,
especially frozen food. This only lowers the
temperature of the oil or fat too much, resulting in
greasy food.
5. Always dry food thoroughly before frying, and
lower it slowly into the hot oil or fat. Frozen foods,
in particular, will cause frothing and spitting, if
added to quickly.
6. Never heat fat, or fry, with a lid on the pan.
7. Keep the outside of the pan clean and free from
streaks of oil or fat.
8
CAUTION: IF AT ANY TIME A CRACK IN THE
SURFACE BECOMES VISIBLE, DISCONNECT THE
APPLIANCE IMMEDIATELY FROM THE SUPPLY.
Under no circumstances should the hob be used
with aluminium foil in contact with the hob surface as
damage can occur.
The following boiling plates are located beneath the
decorative circular patterned cooking areas:Front left 6 heat: 1200W
Rear left 6 heat: 1700W
Rear right 6 heat: 1200W
Front right 6 heat: 1700W
The cooking areas change colour when heated
(become red) indicating which heating element is
switched on. The cooking area returns to its original
colour when the heating element is switched Off.
Warning: Even though the cooking area has
returned to its original colour it may still be hot.
The controls for the hotplates can be turned in either
direction.
Turn the control to 6 for fast cooking. To reduce the
heat to cook more slowly or simmer, turn the control
to a lower setting according to the size of the
saucepan and the amount of liquid.
Pans can be placed on the unheated areas of the
panel when cooking is finished and before serving
food. It is inadvisable at any time to leave a heating
element switched on without a pan in position as this
wastes energy, and could make soil or rub-off from
aluminium pans more difficult to remove. To protect
elements against over-heating, safety cut-outs have
been incorporated with each element. After several
minutes with the control at setting 6 the safety cutout switches the element Off and On continuously,
thus preventing any adverse effects that may be
caused by an excessive build-up of heat in the
cooking area.

THE BEST COMBINATIONS
This table is a general guide to
the types of pan suitable for
different types of hobs and
cookers. Remember pans
should be good quality, with
smooth, flat bases. For any
further information refer to
manufacturers’ instructions.
Not be deeply ridged
Always ✓
Always ensure pans have
clean, dry bases before
use.
Ensure pans match size of
heating area.
Remember good quality pans
retain heat well, so generally
only a low or medium heat is
necessary.
Ensure pan handles are
positioned safely and away
from heat sources.
Always lift pans, do not drag.
Do not use the hob as a worktop surface as
damage may occur to the smooth
surface of the hob.
Do not drag or slide utensils on the hob
surface, as this will cause scratches in
the surface of the hob.
Do not allow a cooking utensil to come into
contact with the hob surround.
Do not place anything between the base of the
utensil and the ceramic hob, e.g. do not
use asbestos mats, aluminium or wok
stand.
But essentially Flat
Use good quality flat-based
cookware on all electric heat
sources.
GB
Never ✗
Use gauze, metal pan
diffusers, asbestos mats and
stands e.g. Wok stands - they
can cause overheating.
Use utensils with skirts or
rims e.g. buckets and some
kettles.
Use badly dented or distorted
pans.
Leave an element switched
on when not cooking.
Cook food directly on the
ceramic glass.
Drag or slide utensils, along
the hob surface.
Always use pan lids except
when frying.
Deal with spillages
immediately but with care.
Ceramic*
Aluminium
Do not leave any utensils, food or combustible
items on the hob when it is not in use.
Do not place aluminium or plastic foil, or
plastic containers on the hob.
Do not leave the hotplates or cooking areas
switched On unless they are being
used. We recommend not to place large
preserving pans or fish kettles across
two heating areas.
Do not leave utensils partly covering the
heated areas. Always ensure that they
are placet centrally over the heated
areas and have the same diameter as
the heating area used.

GB
Choosing Your Utensils
Do not use utensils with rough bases.
Do not use lightweight utensils with thin, distorted or
uneven bases.
Do not use lightweight enamelled steel utensils.
Do not use cast iron utensils.
Do not use utensils with recessed, scrolled or ridged
bases.
Do not
use a utensil which has a base concavity greater than
l mm as this will reduce the performance of the hob.
Do not use a utensil with a convex base.
Do not use glass ceramic utensils.
Do not use use lightweight saucepans with plain thin
copper bases on ceramic or halogen hot plates.
Note: All copper pans are excellent conductors of
heat, and are hard wearing and strong, but need
quite a lot of care. They can be very heavy and do
not usually have completely flat bases. The interiors
are usually lined with a different material such as tin.
A stainless steel pan with a sandwich base of
aluminium and stainless steel is an excellent
conductor of heat and is suitable for use on ceramic
and halogen hobs, providing they are used in
accordance with the saucepans manufacturers’
recommendations.
10
Stainless steel pans with a sandwich base of
aluminium and copper are excellent conductors of
heat. If using stainless steel saucepans with
aluminium and copper sandwich bases on ceramic
and halogen hobs, the use of these pans must be in
accordance with the saucepan manufacturers’
recommendations.
Extra care should be taken to ensure the base of the
pan and the hob is cleaned, and the hob
conditioned, after each and every use, when using
this type of saucepan.
If these recommendations are not followed, the
result will be a build up of small copper deposits on
the surface of your hob which, if not cleaned after
each use, will result in permanent marking of your
hob.
Always lift the pan from the hob, do not drag or
slide across the hob surface as damage may occur.
Grilling
Grilling
A switch operated by the door changes the heating
element configuration between grill and oven
operation. When the door is open, the top inner
element is activated for intense downward heat;
when the door is closed, the top outer and lower
elements are activated to provide even oven
heating.
To operate the grill proceed as follows:
 Open the grill door.
 Pre-heat the grill on setting 6 for approximately 5
minutes (see chart on guide to grilling).
 Fix the grill pan handle securely in position. See
below.
 Food which only requires browning should be
placed directly on/in the grill pan in the grill pan
runner, or on the floor of the grill compartment.
(the grill pan grid may be removed.)
 Leave the control on setting 6 for toast, sealing
and fast cooking of foods. For thicker foods
requiring longer cooking turn the control to a lower
setting after the initial sealing, on both sides, on
setting 6. The thicker the food the lower the
control should be set.
Warning: Take care as the grill will be hot –
always wear oven gloves. Always ensure that
the grill pan is clean BEFORE use. Excess
fat build up in the bottom of the pan could
cause a fire hazard. Never line grill pan with
foil.
‘hooks’ embrace the edge of the pan (fig. 1)
2. Make sure that the middle part of the handle fits
exactly the protruding support of the pan (fig .2) and
holds the pan from the bottom.
The food must be placed on the rack in the grill pan.
Position the grill pan on top of the oven rack. The
best results are achieved by placing the oven rack
on the uppermost shelves. Pouring a little water into
the grill pan will make the collection of grease
particles more efficient and prevent the formation of
smoke.
The food to be cooked should be placed on the grill
pan/grill pan food support.
Place the grill pan on the runners and push back to
the stop position when the grill pan is correctly
positioned beneath the grill element.
Plates and dishes placed on the floor of the grill
compartment will be heated when the oven is in use.
Grill Compartment as a ‘Hotcupboard’
Do not operate the grill control when using
the compartment as a hotcupboard.
Do take care when removing plates, dishes and
utensils from the grill compartment when the oven is
in use as they may become quite hot.
You may need to use oven gloves when removing
warmed items.
Fixing the Grill Pan Handle
The grill pan handle is detachable from the pan to
facilitate cleaning and storage. Fix the pan handle
securely before use:

Main Oven
Oven Control
Heating of the oven is achieved by turning control
clockwise to the required temperature scale on the
control panel, as recommended in the temperature
charts. The indicator light will immediately come on
and will then automatically go off and on during
cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct
temperature.
The cooking charts provided in this book are a guide
only, giving approximate cooking temperatures and
times. To suit personal taste and requirements, it may
be necessary to increase or decrease temperatures
by 10°C.
The oven is fitted with two rod shelves. The oven is
heated by two tubular sheathed elements located
under the floor of the oven and on the oven roof, inside
the cavity. It should be noted that at the end of a
cooking period there may be a momentary puff of
steam when the oven door is opened. This will
disperse in a few seconds and is a perfectly normal
characteristic of an oven with a good door seal.
Oven Positions
The correct positioning of food is indicated in the
temperature charts.
To prepare meat and poultry for roasting in your
conventional oven.
(a)Wipe the joint, dry well with a clean cloth, kitchen
tissue etc. and weigh it. Meat which has been
stored in a refrigerator should be allowed to come
to room temperature for approximately 30 minutes
before cook ing, and frozen meat or poultry must
be completely defrosted before placing in the
oven.
(b)The weight of any stuffing used should be added
to the oven ready weight of the meat / poultry
before calculating the cooking time.
(c)Place the joint in the meat pan supplied with your
cooker. Small joints weighing less than 1.75kg
(31/2 lbs) should be roasted in a smaller meat
pan/tin - or they may be ‘pot roasted’ - a small
joint in a large meat pan causes unnecessary
oven splashing and evaporation of meat juices.
(d)Additional fat should not be added, except for
veal, very lean meat or poultry which can either be
‘larded’ with fat bacon or brushed very
sparingly with cooking oil or melted fat.
(e)Beef, lamb, mutton and poultry may be dusted
lightly with seasoned flour to give a crisp outer
surface. The skin of duck and goose should be
pricked to release excess fat during cooking, and
the rind of pork should be scored, brushed lightly
with oil, and rubbed with salt, to give crisp
crackling.
(f) Potatoes for roasting only require to be brushed
with cooking oil or melted fat.
(g)It is not necessary to baste when roasting in an
electric oven and stock or liquid should not be
added to the meat pan since this only causes
unnecessary soiling, steam and condensation.
GB
For optimum cooking performance, there must be
clearance between meat pan and oven sides. The
meat pan must be placed lengthways in the oven to
allow for air circulation.
Times and Temperatures for Roasting
The secret of succulent, tender meat, is not to roast it
too quickly, at too high a temperature. Best results
are obtained when roasting is carried out at a low
temperature. When a lower temperature is used, the
joint loses less weight, is more tender (too high a
temperature causes meat to be tough and dry) and
the splashing of fat onto the oven interior is reduced to
a minimum. When a complete meal is being cooked
in the oven, cooking time may need to be increased
and temperature may need to be raised for
approximately the last 30 minutes of the cooking
period (for instance when cooking Yorkshire pudding
to serve with roast beef). The suggested times and
temperatures should be used as a guide, but may
vary according to:1. Whether you prefer meat rare, medium or well
done.
2. The size and shape of your joint.
(a)A short thick joint requires a longer cooking
period than a long thin joint.
(b)A small joint under 1.5kg (3 lbs) takes longer per
450g (1 lb) cook in the time given for ‘minutes’ per
450g (1 lb) without the ‘minutes’ over added.
(c)Boned/rolled and stuffed joints take longer to
cook through than those with a bone.
N.B.
Remember to switch off the oven control after cooking
is finished. If the door of the oven is left open for long
periods of time with the control switch ON, then the
grill element will become hot. The correct positioning
of food is indicated in the temperature charts.

The most accurate method of testing the readiness of joints of meat or whole poultry is to insert a meat thermometer into
the thickest part of a joint, or the thickest part of poultry thighs, during the cooking period. The meat thermometer will
indicate when the required internal temp has been reached.

Using the Main Oven
for Other Functions
GB
‘S’ SLOW Setting
This is used for slow cooking, keeping food warm and
warming plates for short periods. Extra care should be
taken when warming bone china, as it may be
damaged in a hot oven.
DO NOT place food or plates directly on the oven
floor as this could damage both the oven lining and
the plates which are being warmed.
Advantages of “SLOW” cooking are:
The oven stays cleaner because there is less
splashing.
Timing of food is not as critical, so there is less fear of
overcooking.
Inexpensive joints of meat are tenderised.
Fully loading the oven can be economical.
Cooking times can be extended in some cases by up
to 2 hours.
Operation:
1. Place the prepared food in the main oven and
ensure the door is fully closed.
2. Select ‘S’ (Slow Cooking Temperature) by turning
the Main Oven Control clockwise ensuring the oven
door is fully closed.
Storage and re-heating of food:
1. If food is to be frozen or not used immediately,
place it in a clean container and cool as soon as
possible.
2. Always thaw frozen food completely in the
refrigerator before re-heating.
3. Always reheat food thoroughly and ensure it is
piping hot before serving.
4. Only re-heat food once.
Points to consider when preparing food
for “SLOW” cooking:
1. Make sure that the dishes to be used will fit into
the oven ensuring enough room for air to circulate.
2. All dishes cooked on the slow setting will require a
minimum of 6 hours, however, if they are cooked for 1
-2 hours longer then deterioration in their appearance
may be noticed.
3. Never cook joints of meat over 2.7kg (6 Ib) or
poultry over 2.0kg (4lb 8oz).
We do not recommend that joints of meat or poultry
are stuffed before cooking on the slow setting.
4. To seal in the meat juices, always cook meat or
poultry at 170°C for 30 minutes before wrapping in foil
and placing on a rack over a tin (to allow good air
circulation) before turning the control to the slow
setting and cooking immediately.
5. Always ensure that joints of pork and poultry are
thoroughly cooked by checking with a meat
thermometer before serving.
6. Always thaw frozen foods completely before
cooking. We do not recommend placing frozen food in
the oven to cook.
7. Always bring soups, liquids and casseroles to the
boil before placing in the oven.
8. Ensure that casserole dishes have a good seal
(not airtight) and cover to the top with foil to prevent
loss of moisture.
9. Ensure that fruit and vegetables are cut into even
sized small pieces to cook properly.
10. Always adjust seasoning before serving.
11. If using dried red kidney beans it is important that
the beans are soaked and then boiled fora minimum of
10 minutes before using in any dish to destroy any
toxins.
12. When cooking fish or egg dishes it may be
necessary to check during cooking to avoid
overcooking.
! When inserting the shelf make sure the
backstop is at the rear of the cavity (see

Care and Cleaning
Ceramic hob
To reduce the amount of cleaning always ensure that
the hob and cooking utensils are clean and dry
before use. Regular use of cleaner conditioner is
recommended for proper care and protection of the
hob surface. Apply conditioner before using the hob
for the first time. It contains a mild cleaning agent,
so that subsequent applications may clean off soil
and apply a protective film at the same time. For
stubborn stains or heavy soiling use any of the
following materials, and finish off with conditioner.
1.Cif, non-scratch scouring cream.
2.Liquid Gumption Kitchen Cleanser.
3.Special Powder Cleanser.
Powder Cleanser – Mineral deposits that are
present in hard water, and some foods, may cause
‘discolourations’ that appear in the form of grey or
brown stains. The stains sometimes appear to be in
or under the glass surface. If there are some
persistent stains after using any of the other
recommended cleaning materials, powder cleanser
may be applied, following the manufacturers
instructions. Do not use abrasive cleaners or the
powder cleanser on the painted metal framework.
Cleaner Conditioner – Regular use of the
conditioner will make the surface easier to cl
Grill
Remove the grill pan and the wire grid food support, it
is best to wash these items immediately after use to
prevent stains from being burnt on when used again.
Wipe out the Grill compartment, use a fine steel wool
soap pad to remove stubborn stains from the grill
runners and the floor of the compartment. Wipe over
the control panel with a damp cloth and polish with a
dry cloth.
Control Panel
Do not use cream cleaners, oven cleaners or
aerosols, scouring pads or abrasive powder for
cleaning the plastic knobs as damage will occur.
Decorative Trims
It is advisable to clean the decorative trims regularly to
prevent any build up of soiling. The recommended
method of cleaning is to wipe over the trims with a soft
cloth wrung out in warm water or mild non-abrasive
cleaner. (If in doubt try the cleaner on a small area of
trim which is not noticeable in normal use). Then, after
wiping with a cloth wrung out in clear water, dry with a
soft clean cloth.
Doors
Wipe over the outer door glass panels with a cloth
wrung out in warm soapy water, then after wiping with
a cloth wrung out in clear water, dry with a soft clean
cloth. Ensure that glass doors are not subjected to
any sharp mechanical blows.
Glass Inner Door Panel (where fitted) – open the
door fully and unscrew the two screws securing the
glass panel, taking care not to allow the glass to fall.
The glass panel may now be washed at the sink.
Stubborn stains can be removed by using a fine steel
wool soap pad. Ensure the glass panel is not
subjected to any sharp mechanical blows. Take
particular care not to damage the inner surface which
is coated with a heat reflective layer. After cleaning,
rinse and dry with a soft cloth. For slight soiling the
inner glass panel may be cleaned, while still warm,
without removing it from the door.
Warning: Oven must not be operated with inner
door glass removed.
Take care during cleaning not to damage or distort
the door seals. Do not lift the door seal from the oven
chassis, if necessary remove the seal by carefully
unhooking the corner clips.
Take care that the rating label edges are not lifted
during cleaning, and furthermore that the lettering is
not blurred or removed.
Ovens
Remove the rod shelves and grill pan. Use a fine steel
wool soap pad to remove stubborn stains from the rod
shelves, grill pan and the floor of the oven.
Oven Shelf Supports
The shelf supports are removable and dishwasher
safe.
To remove hold the support at the front and pull away
from the oven side, this can then be cleaned in a sink
or a dishwasher. When removed it allows access to
the oven side, which can be cleaned with warm soapy
water.
To refit the support, insert the longer leg into the rear
fixing hole and push in the front leg.
Oven Lamp Replacement
Open the oven door and remove the rod shelves.
Using a suitable cloth to protect the fingers grip the
light glass dome, unscrew anti-clockwise and lift.
Reach into the aperture with fingers, and unscrew the
lamp anticlockwise. Fit replacement lamp (25W
300°C rated SES), refit dome.
! Do not use the oven lamp as/for ambient lighting
WARNING: To avoid electric shocks - please ensure
that the electricity supply to the appliance is
switched off and the appliance is fully cold, before
removing the lamp lens.

Ensure that the oven shelves are level by using a
spirit level on the rod shelf and adjusting, using
suitable packing e.g. wood, under the feet of the
appliance. This should be checked both left to right
and front to back. Ensure that the food is positioned
centrally in the oven.
The following may cause cakes to sink:
1. Cooking at too high a temperature.
2. Using normal creaming method with soft margarine.
Refer to the cooking times and temperatures given in
the oven temperature charts, however, it may be
necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by
10°C to suit personal taste.
Do not use utensils greater than 2Ľ ins in height.
