Hob & Cooker Safety
Always ensure that pan bases are dry, and flat before
using them on the hob.
Always position pans over the centre of the element,
and turn the handles to a safe position so they cannot
be knocked or grabbed.
Always use pans which are no smaller than 100mm
(4”), or larger than 250mm (10”).
Always take care when removing food from the oven
as the area around the cavity may be hot.
Always use oven gloves when handling any utensils
which have been in the oven as they will be hot.
Always make sure that the oven shelves are resting in
the correct position in between two runners. Do not
place the oven shelves on top of the highest runner,
this will lead to spillage and injury if the baking tray, or
dish falls.
Never use double pans, rimbased pans, old or
misshapen pans, or any pan which is not stable on a
flat surface.
Never leave cooking fat, or oil, unattended.
Never use commercial simmering aids, or heat
diffusers, as they create excessive heat and can
damage the surface of the hob.
Never use the hob for any other purpose than cooking
Plastic cooking utensils can melt if they come into
contact with a warm hob. Never leave them close to,
or on top of the hob.
Never leave the element alight without a pan covering
it. This causes a fire hazard.
Do not place items on the door while it is open.
Do not wrap foil around the oven shelves, or allow it to
block the flue.
Do not drape tea towels near the oven while it is on,
this will cause a fire hazard.
Do not pull heavy items, such as turkeys, or large
joints of meat, out from the oven on the shelf, as they
may overbalance and fall.
Do not use this appliance to heat anything other than
food items, and do not use it for heating the room.

Chip Pan Fires
What causes a chip pan fire?
Chip pan fires start when oil of fat overheats and catches fire,
or when oil or fat spills on to the cooker because the pan has
been filled too high.
They can also start when wet chips are put into hot oil,
making it bubble up and overflow.
Preventing a chip pan fire
Never fill the pan more than a third full with oil or fat.
Never leave the pan alone with the heat on - even for a few
Dry chips before putting them in the pan.
Never put chips in the pan if the oil has started smoking.
Turn off the heat and leave the oil to cool down, or else it
could catch fire.
In the event of a chip pan fire
If your chip pan does catch fire - don’t panic, and don’t move
the pan. Serious burns are often caused by picking up the
pan and running outside with it.
If it is safe to do so, and you don’t have to reach across the
pan, turn off the heat.
Never throw water, or use a fire extinguisher.
If you can, drape a damp cloth or towel over the pan to
smother the flames.
Leave the pan to cool down for at least half an hour.
If you can’t control the fire yourself, close the door, get out
and tell everybody else to get out.
Call the fire brigade. Don’t go back inside whatever the

Using Your Ceramic Hob
About your hob
Your hob may have halogen element (s) as well as the
standard ceramic elements. In terms of care and use the
procedure remains the same as with the other elements.
The hot hob light
The hot hob light will come on when one of the hotplates
is switched on, or when it has begun to warm up. It will
remain on for a short time after the last element has been
switched off to serve as a reminder that the hob top may
still be warm to the touch.
Switching on - rotary control
Select the element you wish to use, place the pan on
and turn the control knob clockwise to the heat you
wish to use.
The temperature settings on the hob do not indicate
any set temperature and cannot be used to judge one
element against another.
During cooking, the elements will cycle on and off, this
is to prevent the hob for overheating.
In addition for your safety, there may be a ‘hot hob’
light, this will indicate that the hob has been recently
used and may still be hot to touch.
To switch off, turn the selected control knob
anti-clockwise to the ‘OFF’ position.
Energy Saving
Position pans centrally over the elements.
Only heat the amount of liquid you need.
Once liquids have been brought to the boil, reduce the
heat setting to a simmer.
Consider using a pressure cooker if possible.
Vegetables in small pieces will cook quicker.
Use a pan which is a close match to your element size.
Smaller elements are ideal for simmering and stewing
in smaller pans, while the larger elements are ideal for
frying and boiling.
Always make sure that
children are supervised when they are
near to the appliance
when it is in use.
Before use:
Apply a thin coat of
ceramic hob cleaner
to the hob to help
maintain and protect it.

Using Your Ceramic Hob
Notes for Ceramic / Halogen hobs:
Warning: Do not stare at the halogen hob element
while it is in use - doing so may temporarily impair
your vision.
Do not use the ceramic glass surface of the hob as a
work surface or chopping board, this will cause damage
to the glass.
Do not use commercial simmering aids as they cause
excess heat which can damage your hob top and cause
a hazard.
Plastic utensils may melt onto the hob top if they come
into contact with it while it is warm.
Please be aware that the surface of this hob is smooth.
If pans are knocked they will move on the hob top.
Make sure pans are not overhanging the edge of the
hob to prevent this wherever possible.
Use pans which are large enough for the foods inside
to avoid overflowing - this may cause damage to your
Pans with dull or dark coloured bases give the quickest
results. All pans used on ceramic/halogen hobs should
have thick, flat, smooth bases to ensure maximum
contact with the element.
Aluminium pans will give goods results, but please take
care when using them. If they are slid across the hob
top they tend to leave visible marks which can be
difficult to remove.
Foods in salted water, or with a high sugar or syrup
content may cause damage if they are spilled onto the
hob during cooking.
Aluminium foil must not be placed onto the hob, it will
reflect any heat back into the element - which can
damage it.
Pans with highly polished bases may also reflect heat
back into the element causing the hotplate to cycle on
and off rapidly, which slows down cooking.
Do not leave the element on without it being covered
by a pan as this can cause overheating.
Using Your Grill
Before you start grilling. . . .
Before you use the grill, make sure you have placed the
grill shelf in the position you need as once the grill is on
you may injure yourself if you try to move the shelf.
Do not close the door while the grill is in use.
Turn the selector control knob to the heat setting you
To switch off, return the control knob to the ‘off’
The cooling fan will come on during use, and may
continue to run for some time afterwards.
To adjust your results, you can turn the grid over, or
remove it altogether.
Shelf & Grid adjustments
Speed of grilling can be adjusted by changing the shelf
position or the turning the grill pan grid.
High: For thin foods and toasting.
Low: For thicker meat pieces.
Aluminium Foil
Never cover the grill pan or grill grid with foil, or allow fat
to build up in the grill pan, as this creates a fire hazard.
Fixed rate grill: has a
full ‘on’ setting and ‘off’.
Single grill: has one grill
If your grill is a dual grill:
The dual grill uses all of the top element and is ideal for
grilling large quantities of food.
The single grill uses part of the element only, and is
better suited to grill smaller amounts of food.
To attach the handle:
Place the handle over the narrow edge of the grill pan
and slide to the centre as shown in the diagrams.
Types of grill
Variable rate grill: has
adjustable heat settings

Oven & Grill Functions
The chart below details all of the functions which are available. Your oven may
not have all of the functions shown here.
Main Oven Function
Recommended Uses
Base Heat Only
Used to finish off the bases of food following cooking using the conventional
or fanned modes. The base heat can be used to provide additional
browning for pizzas, pies and quiche. Use this function towards the end of
Top Heat Only
The heat is ideal from browning off the tops of food as it is not as fierce as
the grill following conventional or fanned cooking. Provides additional
browning for dishes like Lasagna or Cauliflower cheese. Use this function
towards the end of
Conventional Oven
Intensive Bake
This function is ideal for traditional roasting. The meat is placed in the
middle of the oven, roast potatoes towards the top.
Suitable for food with a high moisture content, such as quiche, bread and
cheesecake. It also eliminates the need for baking pastry blind.
Fanned Grill
The fan allows the heat to circulate around the food. Ideal for thinner foods
such as bacon, fish and gammon steaks. Foods do not require turning. Use
with the oven door closed.
Fanned Oven
The even temperature in the oven makes this function suitable for batch
baking, or batch cooking foods.
To defrost foods, such as cream cakes/gateaux, use with the oven door
closed. For cooling dishes prior to refrigeration, leave the door open.
Dual Grill
Single Grill
This function cooks food from the top and is ideal for a range of food from
toast to steaks. As the whole grill is working, you can cook larger quantities
of food.
For smaller quantities of food, but is still ideal for
anything from toast to steaks.
Base Heat with Fan
Used to cook open pies (such as mince pies) the base element ensures that
the base is cooked while the fan allows the air to circulate around the filling
- without being too intensive.
Lights only
Use when the oven is switched off and cold to aid cleaning the oven cavity.
Fanned Oven Guide
Some adjustment will have to be made to conventional
cooking temperatures.
The table below shows conventional cooking
temperatures, fanned temperatures and gas marks.
For optimum results using the fanned oven setting,
conventional temperatures need to be converted to the
fanned oven temperatures.
For example and item which would cook at 180˚C will
now cook at the fanned oven temperature of 160˚C.
This is a high efficiency oven, you may notice an
emission of steam when the door is opened.
When cooking chilled or frozen foods, use the
recommended cooking times and temperature on the
packaging. Always make sure the food is piping hot
throughout before serving.
There are no zones of heat, and no flavour transfer
when using a fanned oven - allowing you to cook a
greater variety of foods together.
If you are cooking on more than one shelf, you may
need to slightly increase the cooking time.
Always make sure that there is enough space between
dishes, to allow food to rise, and to air to circulate.

Cooking Guide
To get the best results from your oven, we recommend
pre-heating for around 5 to 15 minutes before placing
your dishes in. This is especially important for items
which are chilled, frozen, batter based, yeast based or
whisked sponges.
If you are using a fanned function, you should still preheat but for a shorter time.
The items in the cooking guide below are based on a
pre-heated oven, but can be adjusted to take into account
personal taste.
Oven and bakeware
Always use high quality trays and tins for cooking. Poor
quality tins and trays can warp in the oven producing
uneven results.
Never use dishes which are cracked, damaged or not
oven proof as heating may lead to shattering inside the

Roasting Guide
Roasting times depend on the weight, shape and texture
of the meat and personal preference. In order to
calculate the roasting time, weigh the meat or poultry,
including the stuffing, and follow the times given
Meat joints (including chicken) should be roasted at
180 - 200˚C Conventional/ 160 - 180˚C Fanned for
20 - 30 mins per 450g/1lb, plus 20 minutes on shelf
position 2.
Frozen meat must be thoroughly thawed before
cooking. For large joints, it is advisable to thaw
Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before
cooking. The time required depends on the size of the
bird - eg: a large turkey may take up to 48 hours to
When cooking stuffed meat or poultry, calculate the
cooking time from the total weight of the meat plus the
Cooking joints in foil, covered roasters, lidded
casseroles, or roasting bags will help to reduce meat
shrinkage, give a more moist result and may reduce fat
splashing. However, a slightly longer cooking times will
be required, add 5 - 10 minutes per 450g (1lb) to the
calculated cooking time. When using roasting bags do
not exceed the temperatures recommended by the
manufacturer, and do not allow the roasting bag to
touch the sides or top of the oven.
Use of a trivet with the roasting tin will reduce fat
splashing during open roasting, and will help to keep the
oven interior clean.
The use of a roasting tin larger then that supplied is not
advised, as this may impair performance and lead to
extended cooking times.
Roasting Guide
Roast turkey
Roasting turkey perfectly involves cooking two different
types of meat - the delicate light breast meat, which
must not be allowed to dry out, and the darker leg meat,
which takes longer to cook.
The turkey must be roasted long enough for the legs to
cook, so frequent basting is necessary. The breast meat
can be covered once browned.
Turkey should be roasted at 180 - 200˚C
Conventional/ 160 - 180˚C Fanned for 20 - 30 mins
per 450g/1lb, plus 20 minutes.
The turkey can be open roasted, breast side down, for
half of the cook time, and then turned over for the
remainder of the cooking time.
If the turkey is stuffed, add 5 minutes per 1lb to the
cooking time.
If roasting turkey covered with foil, add 5 minutes per
1lb to the cooking time.
To test if the turkey is cooked, push a fine skewer into
the thickest part of the thigh. If the juices run clear, the
turkey is cooked. If the juices are still pink, the turkey
will need longer cooking. Always make sure that the
turkey is cooked properly before serving.
Turkey Roasting times.
Most Turkeys are measured by the kilogram. Timing should
be calculated in either of these ways:
40 minutes per 1kg plus 10 minutes per 1/4 kg.
20 minutes per 1lb, plus 20 minutes.
The maximum size Turkey for this appliance is: 20lbs
approximately 9kgs.
Please do not attempt to roast a Turkey larger than this, as
the results cannot be guaranteed.

Condensation is caused by hot,
moist air meeting a cooler surface
(i.e. the oven door). You cannot
always prevent it, but you can
minimise it when it happens by
doing the following:
Pre-heat the oven at a high
temperature before putting food in
the oven, and cover the food you
are cooking wherever possible.
Whenever you can, cook wet
foods at higher temperatures.
Don’t leave food in the oven to
cool down.
Automatic cooking will normally
produce condensation when the
oven is cooling down with food
