Optimal use
The recommended baking and roasting temperatures given in older recipe books are
likely to be too high and the recommended shelf levels in the cooking space not ideal.
The 'Tips on settings' section shows how to get the best use out of the appliance.
If in doubt, follow these tips. Note that the temperatures and times given in the tables
are based on typical methods of preparing food and thus are only indicative.
Note on hot air
When the appliance door is opened the hot air function stops. It resumes when the
appliance door is closed again.
If the cooking space temperature is below 100 °C, it is possible to operate
the hot air mode with the appliance door open, for instance to dry foodstuffs.
Cooking space temperature when using hot air
When baking or roasting with hot air, the cooking space temperature needs to be
around 20 °C lower than with top and bottom heat. Recipes often only give temperatures for baking or roasting with top and bottom heat. Compare them to the temperatures given in the 'Tips on settings' section of the recipe book that comes separately.
If in doubt, select a lower temperature.
If the cake or roast is nice and brown on the outside but still doughy or raw
in the middle, it is usually a sign that the cooking space temperature is too
high.

Saving energy
Avoid opening the appliance door frequently. This can lengthen the cooking time
significantly, especially when steaming.
䡲 Only switch the illumination on if needed.
䡲 To save energy when baking, for longer cooking times switch the appliance off
some 10 to 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time and use the heat that
is retained in the cooking space. Exceptions: soufflé, sponges, choux pastry and
puff pastry.
䡲
Preheating
Do not preheat the cooking space unless recommended in the recipe or in 'Tips on
settings'.
䡲 Do not preheat if using the
,
and
operating modes.
䡲
Using accessories
䡲
It is important to put the food that is to be cooked or baked at
the right level in the cooking space. See 'Tips on settings' for
which tray or wire shelf to use.
䡲
The stainless steel tray and the enamelled baking tray serve as
a baking form for flans and biscuits, etc. and as a drip tray for
use with the wire shelf or perforated cooking tray.
䡲
Using knives or cutting wheels on the stainless steel tray or the
perforated cooking tray can visibly damage the surface.
䡲
The wire shelf can be used for putting cake tins and baking
tins, as well as meat and frozen pizza, etc., on.
䡲
The perforated cooking tray is mainly for steaming fresh or
frozen vegetables.

Soft roasting
General remarks
Soft roasting is a patented roasting method, whereby seared meat is cooked in the
appliance at a relatively low temperature for between 2½ and 4½ hours. The temperature is kept purposely relatively low in order to have the meat softly roasted and
ready to eat at the desired time.
The cooking space temperature is regulated by the food probe temperature of the
meat, which is constantly being monitored by the food probe. The cooking space temperature is automatically regulated for optimal soft roasting so that the meat is ready
by the set time. The temperature reading of the food probe plays an important role in
soft roasting, which is why particular care should be taken in positioning the food
probe.
Lean, quality cuts of meat are best for soft roasting. The meat should weigh between
500 g and 2000 g, and – for best results – be no thinner than 4 cm. As a rule of
thumb, the longer you soft roast the meat, the more tender and succulent the meat will
be. This is especially so for thicker pieces of meat. Sinewy or fatty cuts of meat are
less suitable for soft roasting.
A
Marinate or season the meat with herbs and spices according to taste.
A
Season the meat with salt before searing.
A
Remove any marinade made with herbs, mustard, etc. from the meat before searing, as it can burn easily and leave a bitter taste.
37
… Soft roasting
Preparing meat
A
Heat some fat in a pan.
A
Sear the meat on all sides (for no more than 5 minutes).
A
Then place the meat in a glass or porcelain dish.
A
Insert the food probe into the thickest part of the meat and ensure that the tip of the
food probe is in the thickest part.
A
Put the wire shelf in the cooking space at level 1 and place the dish with the seared
meat on it.
A
Plug the food probe into the food probe socket.

䡲
When the food has reached the desired food probe temperature, the appliance can be switched off automatically with the
help of the food probe. A guide to appropriate food probe temperatures can be found in the 'Tips on settings' section.
䡲
The food probe can also be simply used to measure the food
probe temperature of the food in which case the appliance has
to be switched off manually.
䡲
The food probe can be used for all operating modes.
䡲
If the food is left in the cooking space after the appliance has
been switched off, the food probe temperature of the food will
continue to rise somewhat due to the residual heat in the cooking space. This must be taken into account particularly when
cooking meat.
The food probe is suitable for measuring the temperature of food between the
range of 30 °C to 99 °C.

Positioning the food probe
A
To steam, put vegetables in the perforated
cooking tray and meat on the wire shelf or
stainless steel tray.
A
Insert the food probe 1 into the food at as
horizontal a position as possible. The tip
must be roughly in the thickest part and
should be completely covered in order to
get a correct food probe temperature
reading.

With meat, the food probe needs to be inserted in the meatiest part, which
can mean tying the meat up in order to get reliable readings.

Care and maintenance
Cleaning the exterior
A
Avoid cleaning the surface of the appliance with abrasive or caustic cleaning
agents, stainless steel cleaner, scouring pads, wire wool, etc. as they can damage
the surface.
A
Remove any dirt or excess cleaning solution as quickly as possible. Using a cloth
dampened with water, clean the surface (for metallic surfaces rub in the direction
of the original polish lines) and then polish with a soft cloth.
Cleaning the accessories
Do not clean the food probe in the dishwasher.
The baking trays, cooking trays, wire shelves and shelf guides can all be cleaned in
the dishwasher.
62
… Care and maintenance
Cleaning the cooking space
The cooking space temperature sensor can be easily dam
aged. Care must be taken not to bend it during cleaning.
A
Avoid using abrasive cleaners such as scouring pads, steel wool, etc. as they can
damage the surface.
A
Wipe the cooking space clean using only a cloth dampened with water whilst the
appliance is still warm. Finish off by polishing with a soft cloth.
A
To remove dried-on dirt, switch the appliance on for a short period (about 30 minutes) beforehand, setting it to the
operating mode and a temperature of
80 °C. This will soften the dirt.
Over time the cooking space will turn a golden colour. This discolouration is
a normal property of stainless steel and affects neither the cooking or baking
functions nor the operation of the appliance.
Blue tarnish spots and limescale stains can be removed using a mild acid
cleaning agent or some lemon juice.
For ease of cleaning, various parts in the cooking space can be easily removed (see
the following pages).

… Care and maintenance
Descale
Whenever steam is produced, depending on the hardness of the local water supply
i.e. the limescale content of the water), limescale is deposited in the boiler.
The appliance automatically recognises when descaling is necessary.
– «Boiler scaled up,» «please descale!» appear in the plain text display.
The time interval between descaling depends on the hardness of the water and frequency of use. If steaming 4× 30 minutes per week, the appliance must be descaled
– depending on water hardness – roughly as follows:
Water hardness
Soft
Medium
Hard
Descale after about
18 months
9 months
6 months
Descaling takes about 45 minutes.
We recommend you descale the appliance whenever the warning appears in the
plain text display. Failure to descale the appliance will likely impair the functioning of
or cause damage to the appliance.
66
… Care and maintenance
Durgol swiss steamer decalcifier
The descaler contains highly effective acid. Rinse away any
splashes immediately with water.
For descaling, only use the special descaler developed for this appliance and which is available at all good chemists. This special
descaler enables you to achieve a gentle yet professional level of
descaling for your appliance.
Standard descaling solutions are not suitable as they may contain
foam-creating additives or not be effective enough.
Using a different descaler could cause:
Overfoaming in the cooking space

Tips and tricks
Steaming
When using the
steaming mode at 100 °C, a variety of food can be cooked
simultaneously. For example, rice or pulses can be prepared at the same time as
vegetables with similar cooking times, saving energy and washing up.
Grains (e.g. rice and millet) and pulses (e.g. lentils and beans), adding an appropriate amount of liquid, can be cooked directly in tableware.
Type of food
Weight
Approximate amount of liquid to be added
(depending on desired consistency)
Rice
100 g
1½ dl (salted water, bouillon, etc.)
Millet
100 g
1½–2 dl
Semolina
100 g
2–3 dl
Lentils
100 g
2–3 dl
French beans
100 g
3 dl
When using the perforated cooking tray, the stainless steel cooking tray underneath
reduces condensation and avoids food spills on the floor of the cooking space.
Season the vegetables with salt after steaming.
75
… Tips and tricks
Regenerating
Food that is to be regenerated using the
operating mode can be portioned up
directly on heat-proof plates (e.g. porcelain, suitable glass, but not plastic).
With this operating mode, it is not necessary to cover food over. During regenerating,
steam is added and so the food cannot dry out.
The bulkier the food when cooked, the lower the cooking space temperature should
be in order to prevent a slight drying-out effect on the surface (through the longer cooking time).
Bread and other starchy foods, such as rice or pasta, can be easily defrosted using
the
mode.
Meat and fish should be defrosted at very low temperatures, e.g.
to prevent the food cooking at the edges.
50 °C,
Professional baking
Allow bread, bread buns and other yeast cakes and pastries to proof briefly after forming into shape. 10 minutes is usually sufficient. Place the dough on the stainless steel
tray, put it into the unheated cooking space and bake using the
mode.
Yeast and puff pastries to be baked using the professional baking mode do not need
to be brushed with e.g. egg yolk, cream, etc. A nice, shiny crust is formed during
professional baking.
The appliance door should not be opened during the steaming phase. The streaming
in of cold air will prolong the steaming phase and the bread can be oversteamed.
The bread will come out flatter.
For a nice, crispy crust, follow the basic rule: the smaller the item to be baked, the
higher the temperature should be during the hot air phase. Thus the optimum baking
temperature for bread buns is generally higher than for a single loaf of bread.
76
… Tips and tricks
Hot air
The cooking time can be reduced only slightly by increasing the cooking space temperature. If the food is cooked on the outside but still raw or doughy on the inside,
lower the temperature of the cooking space slightly and lengthen the cooking time.
With
, check that the rack levels used correspond to those recommended in the
tips on settings. Do not push baking tins or high food items right to the back of the
cooking space. Even browning is generally achieved at lower temperatures.
Hot air + steaming
When preparing food that can spit, such as meat, poultry, etc., the cooking space
temperature should not exceed 180 °C. At higher temperatures, fat can spit onto the
walls of the cooking space, causing visible, dark marks that cannot be removed.
