SAFETY ADVICE
IN THE EVENT OF A CHIP PAN OR ANY OTHER PAN FIRE:
1.
TURN OFF THE COOKER APPLIANCE AT THE WALL SWITCH.
2.
COVER THE PAN WITH A FIRE BLANKET OR DAMP CLOTH, this will smother the
flames and extinguish the fire.
3.
LEAVE THE PAN TO COOL FOR AT LEAST 60 MINUTES BEFORE MOVING IT.
Injuries are often caused by picking up a hot pan and rushing outside with it.
NEVER USE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER TO PUT OUT A PAN FIRE as the force of
the extinguisher is likely to tip the pan over. Never use water to extinguish
oil or fat fires.

Automatic Cooking
The Oven can be controlled by the automatic timer.
Hints on
Automatic
Cooking
1.
Select foods which will take the same time to cook and require
approximately the same temperature.
2. Set the oven timer so that the food has just finished or about to
finish cooking on your return to the oven. This will ensure the
food has not cooled down and does not require reheating
before serving.
3. Food should be as cold as possible when it goes into the oven,
ideally straight from the refrigerator. Frozen meat and poultry
should be thawed thoroughly before it is put in the oven.
4. We advise that warm food should never be placed in the oven if
there is to be a delay period. Stews prepared by frying the meat
and vegetables should be cooked as soon as possible.
5. We advise dishes containing left-over cooked poultry or meat,
for example Shepherds Pie, should not be cooked automatically
if there is to be a delay period.
6. Stews and joints should be cooked by the long slow method, so
that the delay period is kept to a minimum.
7. On warm days, to prevent harmful bacterial growth in certain
foods (ie poultry, joints, etc) the delayed start should be kept to
a minimum.
8. Wine or beer may ferment and cream may curdle during the
delay period, so it is best to add these ingredients just before
serving.
9. Foods which discolour should be protected by coating in fat or
tossing in water to which lemon juice has been added, prior to
placing food in the oven.
10. Dishes containing liquid should not be filled too full to prevent
boiling over.
11. Food should be well sealed (but not airtight) in a container to
prevent the loss of liquid during cooking. Aluminium foil gives a
good seal.
12. Ensure food is cooked thoroughly before serving.

However, if you should operate a button during this period, the timer will return to normal
brightness for a few seconds and then dim again.
Speedgrill
Your cooker is not fitted with a conventional grill. Creda have developed a high speed
grill which is designed to reduce your grilling times. It is quicker because it takes less
time to warm up from cold. Conventional grills require 5 minutes pre-heat before food
is placed beneath them, but for normal grilling the Speedgrill can be used directly
from cold without any pre-heat.
However, when toasting, optimum performance is achieved by pre-heating the grill for
about 1 minute.
DO NOT under any circumstances insert objects into the grill mesh as this could damage
the glass tubes.
During use the mesh may become soiled. Do not attempt to clean it while the grill is
still on. Turn off at the control and allow to cool before cleaning. Care must be taken
to ensure the grill mesh is not distorted – do not store the grill pan handle on the food
grid when the shelf is in the highest position.
IMPORTANT
GRILLING SHOULD NEVER BE UNDERTAKEN WITH THE GRILL/TOP OVEN DOOR
CLOSED.
NEVER line the grill pan with aluminium foil as this may cause over heating of fat in
the grill pan.
NOTE: To stop fat splashing onto the grill element mesh, it is important to use the antisplash tray. Always clean the grill pan anti-splash tray and food grid after each use.
15
Grill Pan and Handle
The grill pan handle is detachable from the pan, to facilitate cleaning and storage.
The grill pan handle can be fixed as follows:

Using the Oven for Fan Cooking
Fan
Oven
Since a circulaire fan oven heats up more quickly, and generally cooks food at a lower
temperature than a conventional oven, pre-heating is often unnecessary. For guides on “preheating”, “cooking temperatures” and “cooking times”, see “Oven Temperature Charts” later in this
book.
NOTE: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to
increase or decrease temperatures by 10˚C. It may also be necessary to increase or decrease
cooking times.
Oven shelf positioning for fan oven
Most foods will cook satisfactorily on any shelf position, due to even distribution of
heat in the oven, but the shelves must be evenly spaced.
Food or utensils should never be placed directly on the floor of the oven for
cooking as air circulation is restricted.
DO NOT allow young children near to the appliance when the oven is in use as the surfaces get
extremely hot.
Oven utensils
Do not use:
Meat pans larger than 375mm x 300mm (15” x 12”)
Baking Trays larger than 325mm x 250mm (13” x10”)
An additional oven shelf can be purchased from your oven supplier if a third one is
required for batch baking. Never use more than three shelves in the oven as air
circulation will be seriously restricted.
Temperature and time
If three shelves are in use to cook large quantities of food, it may be necessary to
increase the cooking times given in the temperature charts by a few minutes, to allow
for the loss of heat due to extra time taken to load the oven, and the larger mass of
food. Baking trays should have an even gap around the oven.

Step 2 Turn knob (A) clockwise and select the required cooking temperature .
The pilot light will immediately come on, and remain on until the oven
reaches the required temperature. The light will then automatically go off
and on during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct
temperature.
Step 3 After use turn control (A) to its Off (●) position.
NOTE:
20
At the end of a cooking period there may be a momentary puff of steam
when the door is opened. This will disperse in a few seconds and is a
perfectly normal characteristic of an oven with a good door seal.
Using the Oven for other Functions
90
“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:

Make sure that the dishes to be used will fit into the oven ensuring enough room for
air to circulate.
All dishes cooked on the slow setting will require a minimum of 6 hours, however, it
they are cooked for 1-2 hours longer then deterioration in their appearance may be
noticed.
Never cook joints of meat over 2.7kg (6 lb) 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.
To seal in the meat juices, always cook meat or poultry at 170oC 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.
Always ensure that joints of pork and poultry are thoroughly cooked by checking
with a meat thermometer before serving.
Always thaw frozen foods completely before cooking. We do not recommend placing
frozen food in the oven to cook.
Always bring soups, liquids and casseroles to the boil before placing in the oven.
Ensure that casserole dishes have a good seal (not airtight) and cover to the top with
foil to prevent loss of moisture.
Ensure that fruit and vegetables are cut into even sized small pieces to cook properly.
Always adjust seasoning before serving.
If using dried red kidney beans it is important that the beans are soaked and then
boiled for a minimum of 10 minutes before using in any dish to destroy any toxins.
When cooking fish or egg dishes it may be necessary to check during cooking to
avoid overcooking.

IF USING ALUMINIUM FOIL
1. Never allow foil to touch sides of oven.
2. Never cover interior with foil.
3. Never cover shelves with foil.
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 of meat, or the thickest
part of poultry thighs, during the cooking period. The meat thermometer will indicate
when the required internal temperature has been reached.

Cooking Results Not Satisfactory
Grill
Uneven cooking front to back
Ensure that the grill pan is positioned centrally below the
grill element.
Fat splattering
Ensure that the grill pan is not lined with foil.
Ensure that the grill setting is not too high.
Remember to use the anti - splash tray.
Baking General
Uneven rising of cakes
Ensure that the oven shelves are level.
Sinking of cakes
The following may cause cakes to sink:
1. Pre-heating of fan ovens – not always necessary.
2. Cooking at too high a temperature – reduce standard
temperatures by 25˚C for fan ovens.
3. Using normal creaming method with a soft margarine.
If using soft margarine, use an all in one method
instead of the traditional creaming of the margarine
and sugar. Remember when using a food mixer or
processor not to over-cream soft margarine.
Over/undercooking
Refer to the cooking times and temperatures given in the
Oven Temperature Charts provided, however, it may be
necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10˚C to
suit personal taste.
Do not use utensils greater than 56mm (2l⁄4'') in height
for roasting.

Care and Cleaning
Warning: Before cleaning, please ensure that the main cooker wall switch is switched
off and the appliance is fully cold.
1. “CREDACLEAN” OVEN LINERS
(a) How "Credaclean" works.
The surfaces of the "Credaclean" oven liners are treated
with a special vitreous enamel which absorbs cooking
soils. At temperatures of 220°C (425°F) or above, the
special surface enables these soils to be slowly destroyed.
The higher the temperature the more effective it is.
(b) Cleaning.
MAIN OVEN SIDE LINERS
AND REAR PANEL
In most cases normal cooking operations at 220°C (425°F)
will permit this cleaning operation to proceed during
cooking. However if higher cooking temperatures are not
used regularly, it may be necessary, in order to prevent
heavy soiling, to run the ovens without shelves or meat
pan, at a maximum setting for a couple of hours. It should
not normally be necessary to clean the "Credaclean"
panels with water. If the user feels it is desirable to do so,
wipe them over with a clean, soapy cloth, followed by a
wipe with a clean damp cloth.
DO NOT use biological washing powder, harsh abrasives or
chemical oven cleaners of any kind as this could damage the
“Credaclean” oven liners.
26
Care and Cleaning
2. CLEANING THE OVEN
(a) Base of Main Oven.
Wipe out the oven with a damp soapy cloth. For more
stubborn stains on the base of the oven use a well
soaped fine steel wool soap pad.

(b) Grill/Meat Pan & Oven Shelves.
To prevent stains from being burnt on to the grill pan,
food support and rod shelf, always wash immediately
after use in warm soapy water.
Use a well soaped fine steel wool soap pad to remove
stubborn stains from the rod shelves, grill/meat pan and
the base of the oven.
DO NOT use aerosol cleaners on this oven as they could
adversely affect the fan motor unit, and cannot be wiped
off the fan blade.
(c) Speedgrill
To clean the Speedgrill, use a clean, damp, soapy cloth
and wipe over. If stubborn stains remain, gently clean
with a well soaped nylon scouring pad and wipe over
with a damp cloth.
DO NOT use metal cleaning utensils, wire wool or
proprietary oven cleaners on the grill element mesh.

Care and Cleaning
3. CONTROL PANEL / TRIMS / INNER DOOR PANEL & GLASS
OVEN
DOOR
(a) Control Panel
Regularly wipe with a clean, damp cloth and polish with a
clean, dry cloth.
(b) Trims
It is advisable to clean the trims regularly to prevent any
build up of soiling which may detract from the
appearance of the cooker. The recommended method of
cleaning is to wipe over the trims with a clean, 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 clean, soft cloth.
(c) Inner Door Panels & Glass
TRIMS
Open the door fully. The glass panel may now be washed.
Stubborn stains can be removed by using a well soaped,
fine steel wool soap pad.

Installation Instructions
Important
This equipment is designed specifically for domestic purposes and Creda Limited cannot
accept responsibility if used in any other type of installation.
All Creda oven units are suitable for installation under Creda hob units.
This appliance must not be installed over any appliance that generates heat.
For your own safety, we recommend that your appliance is installed by a competent
person – such as one who is registered with NICEIC (National Inspection Council for
Electrical Installation Contracting). The cooker should be installed in accordance with the
latest Edition of the IEE Regulations.
1. General
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
(a) The oven unit is designed for mounting at a safe level into an oven housing which
must be secured to the backing wall, or alternatively, in the case of the single oven
unit, under a worktop with or without a hob unit above.
(b) In an oven/hob arrangement where it is proposed to install the oven directly below
the hob. It is advisable that only slimline hobs are used which have the following
maximum depths.
Kitchen Worktop thickness
Maximum hob depth
(from worktop surface vertically down)
30mm
55mm
40mm
65mm
40mm +
Worktop thickness + 25mm
It is most important that the hob installation instructions are strictly observed.
30
Installation Instructions
2. Oven Unit Housing Cabinets
(a) The oven unit housing cabinet dimensions must comply with Fig. 3 and Fig. 4.
(b) An air gap of 50mm minimum must be provided at the rear of any top or bottom
cupboards or shelves for ventilation.
(c) Do not obstruct the ventilation slots provided on the oven trim. This is found
adjacent to the bottom of the oven door.
(d) The air gap at the rear allows the warmed air to pass out of the cabinet. If cabinets
extend up to the ceiling, the warm air must be exhausted through to the front.
Fig. 1.
(e) If an oven unit is installed adjacent to a tall cabinet, steam escaping from the oven
when the door is opened could condense on, and perhaps stain the adjacent
surface. To prevent permanent staining, the adjacent surface should be made of a
material that is heat resisting and easy to clean. Adjacent tall cabinets should not be
deeper than the oven housing cabinet.
Important
It is essential that the lower cupboard is constructed in the manner illustrated i.e.
having side, back and roof panels so joined as to provide no apertures which could
permit access to the oven unit when installed.
3. Electrical Installation
Mains Supply
A 20 amp Double Pole control switch with a minimum contact clearance of 3mm must
be fitted on or recessed in the wall adjacent to the oven housing cabinetry and should
be accessible after installation. If the oven is to be wired into a connector unit this may
be positioned behind the oven providing:–
i. The top of the connector unit is not more than 30cm above the base of the oven
recess – see Fig. 4.
ii. The depth of the connector unit does not reduce the depth of the oven recess to
less than 55cm.
We recommend that 4mm2 twin and earth PVC insulated cable is used to connect the
cooker to the control unit. This power supply cable must conform to BS 6004.
Alternatively the mains supply can be taken from a household 13 amp switched fused
spur having a minimum contact clearance of 3mm, which must be fitted adjacent to the
oven housing cabinetry and accessible after installation. The oven must be fitted with a
3 core cable having a minimum cross sectional area of 1.5mm2 and must conform to
BS6500.
The oven must not be connected using a 3 pin 13 amp plug.
31
Installation Instructions
Any spare cable must be coiled either behind the oven (not more than 30cm above the base of
the oven recess) or pushed into the air gap below the oven after installation.
Where a hob is fitted adjacent to or above an oven a 45 amp double pole switch with a minimum
contact clearance of 3mm should be used to feed both units via separate suitably rated cables.
Where a hob unit is fitted above the oven unit we recommend that 85oC High Temperature PVC
with insulated 3 core flexible cord to table 15 of BS 6141:1991 with a conductor size of 2.5mm2
must be used to connect the hob to the control unit.
Where a hob unit is fitted adjacent to the oven unit, then 4mm2 twin and earth cable to BS 6004
is recommended to connect the hob unit to the control unit.
In all cases adhere to routing details (see fig. 5).
Your cooker should have been checked to ensure that the voltage corresponds with your supply
voltage, this is stated on the rating plate which is located on the oven front frame (lower).
Conduit Box to Mains Terminal Block
(a) The oven unit should be placed on the floor on its carton base in front of the housing
cabinet. The rear of the unit should be in line with the conduit box.
(b) Ensure there is sufficient cable for any future servicing.
(c) Remove the terminal cover. Prepare the cable, pass it through the cable entry hole in
the oven rear panel and fit to terminal block. Secure the cable clamp and replace the
terminal cover.
4. Final Installation
(a) Using a spirit level, check that the housing cabinet is level from side to side and from
front to back in its installed position.
(b) Correct any unevenness by placing spacers under the bottom of the cabinet.
Make sure that the cabinet rests firmly on the floor without rocking.
(c) Before the oven is fitted the cabinet must be firmly secured to the backing wall for
stability.
(d) The oven unit should now be lifted (this requires two people) into the cabinet and
pushed fully home.
(e) Finally the oven unit must be secured to the cabinet. Position the oven side trims
equally about the cabinet sides. This should give an overlap of approx. 1.5mm per side
(see Fig. 2). Secure the oven unit to the cabinet, through the side trims, by means of
the four screws provided, two each side trim.
(f ) Remove all packing material from the grill and oven interior.
