Soft roasting
9.1
How Soft roasting functions
«Soft roasting» allows good quality pieces of meat to be prepared gently. The
end of cooking can be set precisely, irrespective of the weight and thickness
of the meat. The cooking space temperature is automatically regulated.
The programmes «Soft roasting seared» and «Soft roasting with steam» are
available for selection. In «Soft roasting seared», the cooking process uses a
conventional operating mode. «Soft roasting with steam» functions with the
steam operating mode. Since steam transfers energy better shorter cooking
times and thus energy savings are possible.
Tips for an optimal result
• Meat thickness: at least 4 cm
• Quality: lean, quality meat with few sinews
• Observe the recommendations for weight of meat
(see sections 9.2 and 9.3)
• Take the meat out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking.
9.2
Soft roasting seared
The meat should weigh between 500 and 2000 g. Sear the meat before
cooking. The cooking duration can be set between 2.5 to 4.5 hours.
Preparing the meat
A
Season or marinate the meat.
Remove any marinade made with herbs, mustard, etc. from the meat
before searing. These constituents easily burn.
A
Salt the meat immediately before searing.
A
Briefly sear the meat on all sides. Do not sear for more than 5 minutes.
51
9 Soft roasting
9.3
Soft roasting with steam
The meat should weigh between 500 and 1500 g. The cooking duration can
be set between 1.5 to 2.5 hours. For optical reasons, the meat is seared for
4 to 6 minutes after cooking. For best results, allow the meat to rest for about
5 minutes after searing before serving. This makes the meat more tender.
With «Soft roasting with steam», the meat is seared after cooking and
therefore the recommended values for the food probe temperature are 4 °C
lower than with «Soft roasting seared».
The «Soft roasting with steam» programme was developed for pieces of meat
with a food probe temperature of up to 64 °C.
As steam produces condensate, more residual water is left in the cooking tin
at the end of the cooking process than with «Soft roasting seared».
9.4
Positioning the food probe
A
Place the meat in a glass or porcelain roasting dish.
A
Insert the food probe into the meat so that the tip is in the centre of the
thickest part.
The food probe must as far as possible be completely covered by the
meat in order to get a correct reading.
The temperature measured by the food probe is decisive in obtaining
the optimal degree of doneness of the meat.
A
Put the wire shelf at level 2 and place the cookware on it.
A
Insert the food probe plug into the socket.
52
9 Soft roasting
9.5
Selecting Soft roasting
The longer the cooking time selected, the more tender and succulent
the meat becomes. This is especially so for thicker cuts of meat.
For details on food probe temperatures, see the separate
Tips on settings.

the values.

particular food. With the regenerating humid and crispy programmes, the
operating mode, temperature and time do not have to be set for regenerating
food.
10.1 Degree of moisture
With RegenerateOmatic, it is possible to select between «Regenerating
humid» and «Regenerating crispy».
• «Regenerating humid» for foods that should not dry out such as
vegetables, meat, pasta, etc.
• «Regenerating crispy» for foods that should stay crispy after being
regenerated such as pizza, flans, aperitif nibbles, etc.
10.2 Regeneration duration
Sensors detect when the food is hot.
The approximate duration for most uses is:
• «Regenerating humid» 8–12 minutes
• «Regenerating crispy» 10–14 minutes.
Before starting, the cooking space should have cooled down in order
to determine the optimum duration.
To determine the regeneration duration correctly, the appliance door

Tips and tricks
16.1 Steaming
A
Place the stainless steel tray underneath the perforated cooking tray or
wire shelf to catch food spills and condensate.
A
To save energy, a variety of food can be cooked at the same time, e.g. rice
or pulses together with vegetables with similar cooking times.
A
Grains (e.g. rice and millet) and pulses (e.g. lentils), adding an appropriate
amount of liquid, can be cooked directly in suitable tableware.
A
Put the tableware directly on the stainless steel tray or wire shelf.

16.3 Professional baking
A
After shaping, allow bread, bread rolls and other yeast pastries to prove for
about 10 minutes.
A
Place the dough on the stainless steel tray lined with baking paper and
then put it into the cold cooking space and bake using
.
• A nice, shiny crust is formed with professional baking. Yeast pastries and
puff pastries do not need to be brushed with egg yolk or cream.
• For a nice, crispy crust: the smaller the item to be baked, the higher the
temperature should be during the hot air phase. The optimum baking
temperature for bread buns is generally higher than for a single loaf of
bread.
• The recommended temperature corresponds to the temperature during the
hot air phase. The temperature during the steam phase is preset.
• Do not open the appliance door during the steam phase, as cold air will
stream in which will prolong the steam phase and cause the bread to be
oversteamed. The bread will come out flatter.
16.4 Hot air + steaming
Through the condensation of steam, the transfer of energy to the food is more
efficient than with baking with hot air. This speeds up the cooking process.
The food retains its own moisture and delicate parts do not burn so quickly.
This operating mode is particularly suitable for food that is crispy on the
outside, e.g. gratins, braised meat, frozen ready-made products such as
spring rolls, potato products, etc.

Descaling
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 recognizes when descaling is necessary.
– In the display appears:
Boiler scaled up
Please decale!
We recommend you immediately descale the appliance whenever the
message appears.
Continued failure to descale the appliance can cause damage to the
appliance or its functions.
The entire descaling process takes about 45 minutes.
Descaling interval
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
Descale after about
Hard
