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 food. 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. 5 i if: WARNING: Parts of the appliance may become hot while in use, always make sure that children are supervised when they are near to the appliance. Call Customer Care for a service engineers visit You find over a period of time that the gas oven becomes hotter at a particular temperature - the thermostat may need replacing. The cooling fan fails to work. Always use the Minute Minder (if fitted) if you are leaving the oven unattended, this reduces the risk of food burning. ! Warning (ceramic glass): Never use the hob if the ceramic surface is cracked, broken or shattered. This creates a high risk of injury. Switch off the electric supply and call for a service engineer to come out. ! Warning (ceramic glass): Do not stare at the halogen elements (if fitted). This may impair your vision! Aluminium foil: Do not leave foil on the hob top, it reflects heat back into the element which leads to damage. Slow cooking time? Check the base of your pan. Shiny pans can often reflect heat back into the element causing it to cycle on and off more. 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 seconds. 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 reason. 6 Using The Programmer/Clock Through your clock you will be able to set the time of day and set the minute minder. What your timer symbols mean. Automatic symbol A The programmer buttons (push button timer) There are three buttons on this type of timer. The table below shows you what their symbols look like, depending on the model type, and what they do. Symbol Symbol - + Down / Minus Cook Pot Minute Minder symbol What is it? Used to decrease cook / end time, remove minutes from the minute minder and adjust the time of day. Also for listening to and setting the alarm tone. There are 3 tones to choose from. Up / Plus Used to increase cook / end time, add minutes to the minute minder and adjust the time of day. Function button Used to select the functions available on this timer. Press once for: Minute Minder. Setting the time of day (push button timer) Press the Plus and Minus buttons together for a few seconds, and release. The ‘’ in between the numbers on the LED Display will begin to flash. While the ‘’ is flashing it is possible to adjust the time using the Plus and Minus buttons. Important - Once the time has been set, allow approximately 30 seconds before using any of the other timer functions. This ensures that the time will remain correct. Wait until the clock has finished flashing before attempting to use other functions of the clock 7 This is a 24 hour clock. Before you do anything with your appliance you must set the correct time of day. i A Using The Programmer/Clock Setting an alarm tone (Push button timer) Press and hold the minus button. Once the minus button is released, the tone is selected. You can change tone by repeatedly pressing the minus button (3 tones) Setting the minute minder (push button timer) To set the Minute Minder, press the centre button once. The bell symbol will appear and start flashing. The flashing will last for approx. 5 seconds so the time must be set within this time frame. Use the Plus and Minus button to set the length of time required. Once this has been done, the Minute Minder is set. When the desired length of time has counted down the alarm will sound. To cancel the tone, press any of the buttons. To cancel the Minute Minder at any time, press the Plus and Minus buttons together. 8 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. 9 ! i i ! 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. Supplies can be purchased from our Customer Parts Centre. The part number and contact number are towards the back of this guide. Use flat based pans which are the correct size for your burners and suitable for your hob type. We recommend the following sizes: 100mm or 4” min. 250mm or 10” max. Smaller or larger pan sizes may lead to slower cooking times. Try to avoid spillages of salty substances or sugary substances onto your hotplate spillage well, as this may cause staining and damage your hob. Clean the hob top as regularly as possible, this will prevent any build up of grease which may be a fire hazard. 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 hob. 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. 10 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 require. To switch off, return the control knob to the ‘off’ position. 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. i i 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. 11 Fixed rate grill: has a full ‘on’ setting and ‘off’. Single grill: has one grill element. 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 1 (low) to 8 (high) or 5 (high) - depending on the model. Dual grill: has two grill elements which can be used together, or as a single grill. The grill pan This appliance comes with a grill pan, grill pan handle and a grid. The handle of the grill pan is detachable to allow you to remove it while the pan is in use, this stops it from getting hot. Warning: Accessible parts may become hot when the grill is in use. children should be kept away. i i For best results: Pre-heat the grill for about 3 minutes. Please note: the grill pan handle is designed for sliding the grill pan into and out of the grill cavity. It is not to be used for lifting the pan. Using Your Main Oven The main oven may be controlled by the programmer (see The Programmer/Clock for details). The programmer, if fitted, must be set to manual before it can be used, or programmed. Switching on the fanned oven Use the main oven control to turn your oven on, and select your temperature. Your appliance may be fitted with a thermostat indicator light. If it is, then this will come on to show that the oven is heating, and once the temperature is achieved, it will go out. To switch off the main oven, simply turn the control knob back to the ‘ ‘ position. The cooling fan will come on during use, and may continue to run for some time afterwards. Switching on the multifunction oven Use the function control knob to select the function you wish to use - see the functions table for details. Note: You can change function during cooking if you wish, as long as the oven is in manual mode. Turn the temperature control knob to the temperature you wish to use. Your appliance may be fitted with a thermostat indicator light. If it is, then this will come on to show that the oven is heating, and once the temperature is achieved, it will go out. To switch off the main oven, simply turn the control knob back to the ‘ ‘ position. The cooling fan will come on during use, and may continue to run for some time afterwards. 12 i Important: Never place food, or dishes on the base of the main oven, the element is here and it will cause over heating. 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 cooking. 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 cooking. 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. Defrost 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. 13 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.

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 oven.

Setting ˙C 15 21/2 - 3hrs 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 below. 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 overnight. 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 thaw. When cooking stuffed meat or poultry, calculate the cooking time from the total weight of the meat plus the stuffing. 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. 16 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. or 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. 17 General Baking Guide Trouble-shooting - Fruit Cakes PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE Fruit sinking to the bottom Low oven temperature which may cause the cake to take longer to set, allowing the fruit to sink. Or, too much liquid, or raising agent. The fruit may not have been properly washed and dried. Cake sinking / dipping in the centre Too much raising agent in the mixture. Too hot, or too cool an oven. Or, not enough liquid or insufficient creaming. Surface cracks Too small a tin, or too much mixture in the tin. Too much raising agent in the mix, plus not enough liquid or insufficient creaming. The oven may be too hot. Hard outer crust with a damp patch inside Oven too hot, therefore the cake baked too quickly. Too much sugar, or insufficient liquid. Burnt outside Oven temperature too high. Oven too small for the size of cake. Insufficient protection around the tin. Cake baked on too high a shelf. Texture with pronounced holes. Too much raising agent. Flour unevenly mixed. Texture too close and cake insufficiently risen. Not enough raising agent. Not enough liquid. Too cool an oven. Insufficient creaming. Cake crumbles when cut Not enough liquid. Baked for too long. Not enough sugar. Too much baking agent. Too dry Over baking. Insufficient egg or liquid. Too much raising agent. Domed top Trouble-shooting - Sponge Cakes Insufficient creaming of mixture. Cake baked on too high a shelf position, or at too high a temperature. Paper liners can cause the outer edge not to rise and the centre to peak. Hollowed / sunken top Too much raising agent. Oven temperature too low, or incorrect shelf position. Cake removed from oven before it’s cooked. Use of soft tub margarine. Very pale, but cooked Oven temperature too low. Baked too low in the oven Overflowing tin Tin too small for the amount of mixture 18 Cleaning Your Electric Hob Ceramic glass hobs (if fitted) The ceramic hotplates, and hob top can be cleaned using a clean, damp cloth or kitchen paper. Please ensure that the elements are cooled fully to avoid steam burns. You can use a specialist ceramic cleaner to restore the surface, but use sparingly to avoid coating the hob top too thickly, too much cream cleaner will lead to discolouration. Use a dry, clean cloth to polish the surface. For stubborn marks, a little cream cleaner and a specialist hob scraper can be used. Do not use steam cleaners. Regular cleaning will prevent any salts or minerals from accumulating on your hob and discolouring the glass. Solid plate hobs (if fitted) Prime and Season - this helps maintain the finish of the elements. Use a damp, clean cloth to wipe the solid plate, making sure that you follow the circular grooves and avoid damaging the ‘red spot(s)’. Make sure that you allow the hotplate to dry before use by switching on the elements at a low heat. You can restore the hotplates by using a solid plate cleaner. Plastic & Painted parts Only use a clean cloth wrung out in hot soapy water. Vitreous enamel surfaces (enamel hobs only) Use a mild cream cleaner on a clean cloth. Stainless steel & Aluminium surfaces Only use a clean cloth wrung out in hot, soapy water. Stubborn marks can be removed by using a specialist cleaner, we also recommend that you clean the whole area, to maintain a uniform finish. Some foods are corrosive, eg: vinegar, fruit juices and especially salt, these can damage and leave marks on the surface. Wipe any spillage of these substances as safely, and as quickly as possible. Do not use steam cleaners 19 ! i i Always allow your appliance to cool down, and switch off the electricity before you clean any part of it. Take care when cleaning over symbols on fascia panels, excessive cleaning can lead to the symbols fading. Keep a separate cloth aside for cleaning your glass hob - this will prevent greases being transferred which can cause discolouration of the glass surface. To prime: Switch on each element in turn for a short while (with no pan on it) at a medium - high setting. This will harden and burn off the coating. To season: Heat the element for 30 seconds at a medium setting then switch off. Use a minimum amount of unsalted vegetable oil on a dry cloth or paper towel, and apply a thin coat of oil to the element surface. Wipe off the excess and heat the element for 1 minute. i i Baby oil can be used to restore stainless steel finishes - but only use a few drops. Don’t use cooking oils as they can contain salts which will damage the metal. Don’t use: Abrasive powder cleaners, wire wool, soap filled wire pads, detergents, bleaches, bath stain remover or chemical oven cleaners.

Problem? There’s condensation on the doors. Advice 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 inside. There’s been a power failure and the oven won’t work. (models with clocks and automatic programmers) Switch off the electricity supply. When the power returns - re-set the programmer/Clock to the correct time of day. This will allow you to use your appliance. 23 Changing Light Bulbs Warning: There is a risk of electric shock, so always make sure you have turned off and unplugged your appliance.
