Safety Instructions
The installation and connection of the new appliance must only be carried out by a registered specialist.
Where damage occurs the warranty will not apply if this instruction has
not been adhered to.
The safety features of AEG electrical appliances comply with recognised
technical standards and the German law covering equipment safety.
However, as manufacturers we also believe it is our responsibility to
familiarise you with the following safety instructions.
General Safety
• Take care when connecting electrical appliances to sockets near to
the appliance. Do not allow connecting leads to come into contact
with hot rings or to catch beneath the hot oven door.
• Do not store inflammable objects in the oven. They may ignite when
the oven is switched on.
• For safety reasons cleaning the appliance with a steam jet cleaner or
high-pressure water cleaner is not permissible.
• Using force, especially on the edges of the front glass panel, may
break the glass.
• Caution: Risk of burning! Whenever you bake, roast or grill the oven
door becomes hot, as do the inner surfaces of the oven, heating elements and accessories. Always use an oven cloth or oven gloves and
take every care to avoid burns. For this reason keep children away
from the appliance at all times.
• Overheated fats and oils catch fire quickly. Do not leave the appliance
unattended when cooking food in fat or oil (e.g. chips).
• Using ingredients containing alcohol in the oven may create an alcohol-air mixture that is easily ignited. In this case, open the door carefully. Do not have embers, sparks or naked flames in the vicinity when
opening the door. We recommend that you leave the cooked item in
the oven with the door closed and the oven turned off for about 10 15 minutes to cool.
• Repairs to the appliance may only be carried out by qualified specialists. Improperly effected repairs may result in significant risk to
the user. If your appliance needs repairing, please contact customer
service or your dealer.
• If the appliance malfunctions: remove fuses or switch off.
5
Intended Use
• This appliance is intended to be used for cooking, frying and baking
food in the home and must not be used for any other purpose.
• Only use the appliance to prepare food.
• Do not use the oven as a room heater.
To Avoid Damaging Your Appliance
• Do not line your oven with aluminium foil and do not place a baking
tray or dish on the oven floor, otherwise the oven enamel will be
damaged by the resulting build up of heat.
• Clean the appliance after each use. This is the easiest way to remove
spills and prevents them being burnt on.
• Juice from fruit that drips from baking trays will leave marks that
cannot be removed. For very moist cakes, use the universal baking
tray.
• Never pour water directly into the hot oven. The enamel may be damaged.
• Do not put any weight on the open oven door.
• Do not store moist food in the oven.

Disposal
Disposing of packaging material
All materials used can be fully recycled.
The cardboard container is made from 80% recycled paper.
Plastics are marked as follows:
• >PE< indicates polythene, as used on the outer covering and the
wrappings inside.
• >PS< indicates expanded polystyrene e.g., the padding materials. It is
entirely CFC-free.
Any unwanted packaging materials will be taken back by your dealer
free of charge.
Disposing of old appliances
To protect the environment, it is important that worn out appliances
are disposed of in the correct manner. This applies to your old appliance
and will also apply to your new appliance at some time in the future
when it is no longer required.
1
Warning! Before disposing of old appliances make them inoperable.
Disconnect the appliance from the mains supply and remove the mains
lead.
This prevents children getting into life-threatening situations when
playing.

The oven has the following functions:
H Hot air
Hot air is particularly suitable for baking biscuits on 2 levels at the
same time.
The oven temperatures are usually 20-40 °C lower than with conventional.
Top and bottom heat are used. In addition, a fan in the rear wall of the
oven ensures constant circulation of hot air within the oven compartment. Hot air reaches all sides of the food.
O Conventional
Conventional oven heating is suitable for baking and roasting on one
level.
Heat is supplied evenly from above and below.
Ü Bottom heat
You can use this oven function to crisp and brown bread, cakes (e.g.,
moist cakes) and pastries from below.
In this case only the heater fitted in the base of the oven is used.
A Defrosting
Using the defrost oven function you can partially- or completely and
evenly defrost foods such as flans, butter, bread, fruit or other delicate
foods.
With this function only the fan is in operation; there is no heating.
F Grill
Grilling is particularly suitable for grilling or toasting flat foods, such
as steaks, escalopes, fish or toast.
The heat is supplied from the grill element on the oven ceiling.
Z Dual grill
The dual grill is suitable for grilling or toasting large quantities of flat
food such as steaks, escalopes, fish or toast.
When you use this function an additional, second grill heating element
in the oven ceiling is switched on.
11
I Rotitherm

Residual heat, off position
We recommend using setting "9" to heat up or brown food and then
reducing the heat settin to the appropriate level for those foods that
require longer cooking.
Baking
For baking use the hot air H oven function or conventional O .
Baking tins
• When using conventional heat O coated baking tins or tins made of
dark metal are most suitable.
• For hot air H baking tins made of light metal are also suitable.
Shelf positions
• Baking with conventional O is only possible on one shelf position at
a time.
• Using hot air H you can bake dry items and biscuits on 2 baking
trays simultaneously.
1 Baking tray
Shelf position 3
1 Baking tin:
Shelf position 1
2 Baking trays:
Shelf positions 1 and 4
19
General information
• Always count the shelf positions from the bottom upwards.
• Insert baking sheets with the bevelled edge to the front!
• Always place cake tins in the middle of the shelf.
• You can also bake with two tins at the same time using conventional
O or hot air H . In this case, place the cake tins side by side on the
shelf. The cooking time is increased, but only slightly.
Notes on the baking tables
In the tables you will find information on temperatures, cooking times
and shelf positions for a selection of dishes.
• Ranges are given for the temperature and cooking time since these
are dependent on the mixture, quantity and cake tin used.
• When using 2 baking trays the lower baking tray should remain in the
oven for an extra 5-10 minutes if necessary.
• Items that might drip (e.g., pizzas, fruit flans) should only be prepared
on one level.
• When using for the first time, we recommend setting the lower temperature, and only if necessary, e.g. if increased browning is required
or the cooking time is too long, select a higher temperature.
• If you cannot find specific information for one of your own recipes,
use information given in a similar recipe for guidance.
• Variations in the height of the item to be baked can lead to different
degrees of browning at the start of baking. In this case please do not
change the temperature setting.
Differences in the degree of browning will balance out during baking.

Tips for Baking
Tip
To tell if your cake is cooked
through
Push a wooden skewer into the highest point of the
cake. If the skewer comes out clean, you can switch
off the oven and utilise the residual heat.
Check your recipe. Next time, use less liquid. Check

Roasting
Use the rotitherm I oven function or conventional O when roasting.
Ovenware for roasting
• Any heat-resistant dish is suitable for roasting.
• If the dish has plastic handles, check that they are heat-resistant.
• Large joints can be roasted directly in the universal baking tray or
on the shelf unit with the baking tray placed below (e.g., turkey,
goose, 3-4 chickens, 3-4 knuckles of veal.)
• We recommend that all lean pieces of meat should be roasted in a
casserole dish with a lid (e.g., veal, marinated beef, pot roast, frozen
meat.) In this way the meat will retain its juices.
• You can roast meats that are to be browned or crisped in a casserole
dish without a lid (e.g., pork joints, meat loaf, lamb joints, mutton,
duck, 1-2 knuckles of veal, 1-2 chicken, small poultry, roast sirloin,
fillet, game).
• Tip: If you use dishes for roasting (particularly for small amounts), the
oven will not get so dirty!
Shelf positions
• Please see the following table for the shelf positions to be used.
25
Notes on the roasting tables
Information is given in the table on suitable oven functions, temperature settings, cooking times and shelf positions for various types of
meat. The cooking times are only for guidance.
• We recommend that only meat and fish with a minimum weight of
1kg should be roasted or baked in the oven.
• In general, conventional O is particularly suitable for cooking very
lean meat such as fish or game. For all other types of meat (particularly poultry) we recommend the rothitherm function I.
• The cooking time required is dependent on the type and quality of
the meat.
• To stop meat juices or fat burning onto dishes or the oven, we recommend adding a little liquid to the roasting dish
• Turn the roast after approx. 2/3 of the cooking time.

Switch off the oven 10-15 minutes before the end of the cooking time
to make use of the residual heat.

When do you incur costs even during the warranty period?
• if you could have remedied the fault using the fault table (see section
"What to do if ...“),
• if the customer service technician has to make several journeys
because he was not provided with all the relevant information before
his visit and therefore, for example, has to fetch spare parts. These
multiple trips can be avoided if you prepare for your phone call as
described above.
