Causes of damage
Caution!
–
Do not place anything on the cooking
compartment floor. Do not cover it with aluminium
foil. A build-up of heat could damage the
appliance.
The cooking compartment floor and the
evaporator dish must always be kept clear. Always
place ovenware in a perforated cooking container
or on a wire rack.
–
Aluminium foil in the cooking compartment must
not come into contact with the door panel. This
could cause permanent discolouration of the door
panel.
–
We recommend you use a mineral water low in
chloride and without added carbonic acid if your
tap water contains large amounts of chloride
(>40 mg/l). You can inquire with your local water
supply company to obtain information about your
tap water.
–
Ovenware must be heat and steam resistant.
Silicone baking tins are not suitable for combined
operation with steam.
–
Use only original accessories in the cooking
compartment. Rusting material (such as serving
platters or knives and forks) can cause corrosion
in the oven interior.
–
Use original small parts (e.g. knurled nuts) only.
Order small parts from our after-sales service if
these should be lost.
–
When steaming with a perforated cooking
container, always insert the baking tray or the
solid cooking container underneath. Dripping
liquid is caught.
–
Do not store moist food in the closed cooking
compartment for long periods. It can lead to
corrosion in the cooking compartment.
–
Salt, spicy sauces (e.g. ketchup or mustard) or
salted dishes (e.g. cured roast) contain chloride
and acids. These corrode the surfaces of
stainless steel. Always remove residues
immediately.
–
Fruit juice may leave stains in the cooking
compartment. Always remove fruit juice
immediately and wipe the cooking compartment
with a moist and dry cloth.

Incorrect repairs are dangerous. Repairs
may only be carried out and damaged
power cables replaced by one of our
trained after-sales technicians. If the
appliance is defective, unplug the
appliance from the mains or switch off the
circuit breaker in the fuse box. Contact the
after-sales service.
The cable insulation on electrical
appliances may melt when touching hot
parts of the appliance. Never bring
electrical appliance cables into contact
with hot parts of the appliance.
Penetrating moisture may cause an electric
shock. Do not use any high-pressure
cleaners or steam cleaners.
A defective appliance may cause electric
shock. Never switch on a defective
appliance. Unplug the appliance from the
mains or switch off the circuit breaker in
the fuse box. Contact the after-sales
service.
The insulation of an incompatible meat
probe may be damaged. Only use the meat
probe which is recommended for this
appliance.
–
The cooking compartment in your appliance is
made of high grade stainless steel. Improper care
can lead to corrosion in the cooking
compartment. Refer to the care and cleaning
instructions in the instruction manual. After every
use, clean the cooking compartment after the
appliance has cooled down. After cleaning, dry
the cooking compartment with the drying
program.
–
Do not detach the door seal. The appliance door
will no longer close properly if the door seal is
damaged. The fronts of adjacent units could be
damaged. Have the door seal replaced.
–
Do not carry or hold the appliance by the door
handle. The door handle cannot support the
weight of the appliance, and could break.
Environmental protection
Unpack the appliance and dispose of the packaging in
an environmentally-responsible manner.
Environmental protection
This appliance is labelled in accordance with
the European Directive 2012/19/EU
concerning used electrical and electronic
appliances (WEEE – waste electrical and
electronic equipment). The guideline
determines the framework for the return and
recycling of used appliances as applicable.
Tips for saving energy
▯
Open the appliance door as little as possible
while cooking.
▯
Use dark, black lacquered or enamelled baking
tins for baking. They absorb the heat particularly
well.
▯
It is best to bake several cakes one after the
other. The oven will still be hot. This reduces the
baking time for the second cake. You can also
place two loaf tins next to each other.
▯
For longer cooking times, you can switch off the
steam oven 10 minutes before the end of the
cooking time and you can use the residual heat to
finish cooking.
▯
When steaming, you can cook simultaneously on
several levels. If dishes require different cooking
times, insert the dishes that require the longest
time first.

Calibration
The boiling point of water depends on barometric
pressure. As air pressure drops with increasing
elevation, the boiling point drops as well. During
calibration, the appliance sets the boiling point to the
pressure conditions at the place where it is installed.
It is important that the appliance steams without
interruption for 20 minutes at 100°C. Do not open the
appliance door during this time.
After moving house
Repeat calibration so that the appliance adapts
automatically to the new installation location.
After resetting to the factory settings
After resetting to the factory settings in the basic
settings menu, you must repeat calibration.
Following a power cut
The appliance saves the calibration settings even in
the event of a power cut or disconnection from the

Settings table and tips
Notes
‒
The specified cooking times are only a
recommendation. Actual cooking time is
influenced by the quality and temperature of the
food, its weight and its thickness.
‒
Always preheat the appliance. This ensures you
achieve the best cooking results.
The specified cooking times apply to a preheated
appliance. They are extended by about 5 minutes
if you do not preheat the appliance.
‒
The data refers to average amounts for four
persons. If you would like to prepare more, you
should calculate a longer cooking time.
‒
Use the specified cookware. Cooking times may
be lengthened or shortened if you use different
cookware.
‒
Begin with the shortest specified time if you do
not have much experience with a dish. If
necessary, you can extend the cooking time.
‒
Pay attention to only opening the oven door of the
preheated appliance briefly and to filling the
appliance swiftly.
‒
When using only one cooking container, insert it
in the second level from below.
‒
When using the perforated cooking container or
the wire rack without additional cookware, always
slide the unperforated cooking container into the
first level from below to avoid soiling of the
cooking compartment's bottom and the
evaporating dish.
‒
When steaming, thawing, fermenting and
regenerating, you can use up to three insertion
levels at the same time (levels 2, 3 and 4 from
below). No taste is transferred. Thus, you can
prepare fish, vegetables and desserts at the same
time. However, the specified cooking times may
be extended if you are cooking a large amount of
food.
‒
You can only bake on one level. Use the second
level from below.
‒
The food being cooked must not come into
contact with the sides of the cooking
compartment, the grease filter or the rear plate.
‒
The oven door must close well. Therefore, always
keep the sealing surfaces clean.
‒
Do not fill up racks and receptacles too densely.
This ensures optimum steam circulation.
‒
Leave the grease filter inside the appliance during
every use.
▯
Use the perforated cooking container to steam
vegetables, sliding it into the second level from
below. Insert the unperforated cooking container
under it. This prevents soiling of the oven interior.
You can collect the vegetable juice and use it as
the base for a sauce or a vegetable broth.
▯
Blanch vegetables for up to four minutes in the
preheated appliance. If vegetables or fruits are
not served straight away, place them in ice water
to prevent simmering in the residual heat.
Vegetables
▯
▯
Vegetables are prepared more gently in steam
than in boiling water. Their taste, color and
consistency are preserved better. Vitamins and
ingredients that are soluble in water are not
washed out. As the steam oven operates without
pressure at only 100°C, food is prepared
considerably more gently than in a pressure
cooker, for example.
All data refers to 1 kg of cleaned vegetables.

Fish
▯
Steaming does not dry out fish and its intrinsic
taste and texture are preserved very well.
▯
For reasons of hygiene, fish and other critical
foods should have a core temperature of at least
62 - 65°C after cooking. This is also the ideal
cooking point.
▯
Do not salt fish until after cooking it. This
preserves the natural aroma and less water is
extracted from the fish.
▯
When using the perforated cooking container:
you can grease it lightly if fish should stick to it
too easily.
▯
Insert the unperforated cooking container in the
first level from below to avoid soiling of the oven
interior with intensively smelling fish juice.
▯
In the case of fillets with skin: place the fish with
its skin side pointing upward to preserve its
structure and aroma.

Meat – cooking at higher temperatures
▯
▯
▯
The combination of steam and hot air is the
optimum cooking process for many types of meat.
In this mode of operation, the cooking
compartment is sealed hermetically and moisture
prevents the drying-out effect of the conventional
hot air oven. Thanks to variable humidity control,
you can achieve the optimum climate for every
food.
The cooking times specified are a
recommendation and depend very much on the
initial temperature of the food and the length of
time it is fried. Use the core temperature probe
for better control. You will find notes and optimum
target temperatures in the section entitled Core
temperature probe.
Take meat out of the fridge one hour before
preparing it.
▯
When using the perforated cooking container or
the wire rack, insert an unperforated cooking
container underneath it. Pour some water into the
unperforated cooking container to prevent baking
in. You can also insert vegetables, wine, spices
and herbs to prepare a tasty base for sauces.
▯
If you would like to cook meat rare or mediumrare: open the door 5°C before the required core
temperature has been reached and wait until the
target temperature is reached. This prevents
overcooking and you give the meat the time it
needs to settle.
▯
Letting meat settle: let the meat settle for another
10-15 minutes after cooking. In this way, the meat
can "relax". Circulation of the meat juice
diminishes and there are fewer losses of juice
when cutting open the meat.

Meat/poultry – low-temperature cooking
▯
▯
Vigorously browned meat matures over a longer
time at a lower temperature. As a result, the meat
evenly becomes gentle pink and extraordinarily
juicy apart from a very thin edge. And it is neither
necessary to turn the meat nor pour juice over it.
The cooking times specified are only a
recommendation and depend very much on the
initial temperature of the food and the length of
time it is browned. Use the core temperature
sensor for better control. You will find notes and
optimum target temperatures in the section
entitled Core temperature sensor.
▯
Take meat out of the fridge one hour before
preparing it.
▯
For hygienic reasons, sear the meat briefly at a
high temperature in the pan from all sides before
cooking it. As a result, a crust is produced that
prevents leaking of the meat juice and ensures a
typical roast aroma.
▯
Season carefully: slow maturing of the meat
boosts all aromas.
36
▯
Venison and horse meat tastes stronger after lowtemperature cooking than when prepared by
classical methods.
▯
Use the "Low-temperature cooking" mode › .
Thus, the moisture escaping from the food stays
in the cooking compartment and prevents drying
out of prepared foods.
▯
Pleas note that you cannot achieve any core
temperatures above the cooking compartment's
temperature. As a rule of thumb: the set oven
temperature should be 10-15°C above the
desired core temperature.
▯
You can reduce the temperature to 60°C towards
the end of the cooking time. Thus, you can
prolong the cooking time (for example, if guests
arrive late). If you want to stop the cooking
process, the interior temperature must not be
higher than the desired core temperature. Thus,
large pieces can stay in the oven for 1 - 1.5 hours,
while small pieces can stay there for 30 - 45
minutes.

Remarks
Poultry
▯
The humidity during combined operation prevents
drying out which, especially in the case of poultry,
is crucial. At the same time, the high temperature
lends crispy browning to the surface. The heat
transmitted by the hot steam is twice as high as in
the case of conventional hot air and it reaches all
parts of the food. This is why a chicken becomes
browned and crispy all-round, and nevertheless
the breast meat stays tender and juicy.
▯
The cooking times specified are a
recommendation and depend very much on the
initial temperature of the food. Use the core

Baking
▯
Using the steam oven, you can prepare your
baked items with the optimum humidity:
‒ a | Hot air + 0% humidity:
moisture can escape in the case of fruit cakes
and quiche. This mode corresponds to hot air
in the conventional oven.
‒ ` | Hot air + 30% humidity:
mixed cake does not dry out. The intrinsic
humidity in a food cannot escape from the
oven interior.
‒ _ - \ | Hot air + 60 - 100% humidity:
puff pastry and yeast-risen pastries become
looser on the inside and crispy on the outside
with a gloss.

Regenerating (reheating)
▯
In the steam oven, you can generate the optimum
climate for heating ready-cooked meals without
them drying out. Thus, taste and quality are
preserved, and meals taste like freshly prepared.
▯
Use the "Regenerating" mode d to do this.
▯
The data refers to portions for one person. You
can also warm up large quantities in the
unperforated cooking container. The specified

Raising dough
▯
The steam oven offers the ideal climate for raising
dough and dough mixtures or dough pieces
without drying them out.
▯
It is not necessary to cover the bowl with a moist
cloth. Raising only takes half as much time as it
used to.
▯
Use the "Dough proofing" mode V to do this.
▯
The specified dough proofing time is a
recommendation only. Raise dough until its
volume has doubled.

Defrosting
▯
▯
In the steam oven you can gently and evenly
defrost deep frozen food faster than at room
temperature.
▯
Use the "Defrosting" mode W to do this.
▯
The specified defrosting times are only a
recommendation. The time it takes to defrost
depends on the size and weight of the frozen
food: freeze your food flatly or individually. This
shortens the defrosting time.
▯
Remove the packaging before defrosting.
▯
Defrost only the quantity you need for
preparation.
▯
Remember: once defrosted, food will not keep for
as long and spoils more quickly than fresh food.
Immediately process defrosted food and cook it
thoroughly.
m
After half of the defrosting time, turn meat or fish
over. Separate frozen pieces of food such as
berries or bits of meat. It is not necessary to fully
defrost fish. It will be sufficiently thawed if the
tissue is soft enough to absorb the spices.
Health risk!
When defrosting food from animal sources, you must
remove the liquid that escapes during defrosting. It
must never come into contact with other food.
Bacteria could be transferred.
Slide the unperforated cooking container underneath
the food. Pour away the collected thawing liquid from
meat and poultry. Then clean the sink and rinse with
plenty of water. Clean the cooking container in hot
soapy solution or in a dishwasher.
After defrosting, operate the steam oven for
15 minutes using Hot air at 180°C.

Preserving
▯
In the steam oven, you can preserve fruit and
vegetables without much effort.
▯
Check and thoroughly clean preserving jars,
rubber rings, clamps and springs.
▯
Preserve food which is as fresh as possible.
When foods are stored for a relatively long
period, their vitamin content is reduced and they
ferment and spoil more easily.
▯
Disinfect rinsed jars before preserving in your
steam oven at 100 °C and 100% humidity for 2025 minutes.
▯
▯
Use only fruit and vegetables that are in perfect
state.
Place the jars in the perforated cooking
container. They must not be in contact with each
other.
▯
The steam oven is not suitable for preserving
meat.
▯
After the specified cooking time, open the
appliance door. Do not remove the preserving jars
from the appliance until they have completely
cooled down.

Preparing yoghourt
▯
You can prepare your own yoghourt in the steam
oven.
▯
In the case of yoghourt ferment, pay attention to
the notes on the packaging.
▯
Heat up pasteurized milk to 90°C on the cooktop
to avoid disturbing the yoghourt cultures. Longlife milk (UHT milk) does not need heating. (Note:
if you produce yoghourt with cold milk, this will
prolong the maturation time.)
▯
Pour the yoghourt into rinsed jars.
▯
You can disinfect the rinsed jars in your steam
oven at 100°C and 100% humidity for 20 25 minutes before pouring in the yoghourt. Make
sure you allow the jars and the oven interior to
cool down before you pour the yoghourt into the
jars and place the jars in the appliance.
▯
After preparing it, place the yoghourt in the
fridge.
▯
To get firm yoghourt, add skimmed milk powder
(1 - 2 tablespoons per liter) to the milk before
heating it.
▯
Important! Allow the milk to cool to 40°C in a
water bath to avoid destroying the yoghourt
cultures.
▯
Stir natural yoghourt with declared yoghourt
cultures into the milk (1 - 2 teaspoons of yoghourt
for every 100 ml).

Preparing bulky food
▯
You can remove the side slide-in rails to prepare
bulky food.
▯
To do this, undo the knurled nuts on the front of
the slide-in rails and pull out the rails toward you
(see section entitled Removing slide-in rails).
▯
Place the wire rack directly on the bottom of the
cooking compartment and then place the food or
the roaster on the rack. Do not place the food or
the roaster directly on the bottom of the cooking
compartment.
Acrylamide in foodstuffs
Which foods are affected?
Acrylamide is mainly produced in grain and potato
products that are heated to high temperatures, such
as potato crisps, chips, toast, bread rolls, bread, fine
baked goods (biscuits, gingerbread, cookies).
Tips for keeping acrylamide to a
minimum when preparing food
General
Keep cooking times as short as possible. Cook meals until they are golden
brown, but not too dark. Large, thick
pieces of food contain less acrylamide.
Baking
With Hot air, max. 180 °C.
Biscuits
Egg or egg yolk reduce the formation of
acrylamide. Spread out a single layer
evenly on the baking tray.
Oven chips
Cook at least 400 g at once on a baking
tray so that the chips do not dry out.
