Bosch HBL7 / HBN7 Oven Use and Care Manual Cooking with the Bosch Convection Oven Cooking with the BOSCH Convection Oven In a conventional oven, the heat source cycles on and off to maintain an average temperature in the oven cavity. As the temperature gradually rises and falls, gentle air currents are produced within the oven. This natural convection tends to be inefficient because the currents are irregular and slow. In the Bosch convection system, the heat is “conveyed” by a fan that provides continuous circulation of the hot air. The Bosch Genuine European Convection™ system provides state-of-the-art engineering and advanced design to create the finest convection oven. In standard convection ovens, a fan simply circulates the hot air around the food.The Bosch convection system is characterized by the combination of an additional heating element located around the convection fan and the venting panel that distributes heated air in three dimensions: along the sides, the top and the full depth of the oven cavity. This Genuine European Convection system aids in maintaining a more even oven temperature throughout the oven cavity. The circulating air aids in speeding up the baking process and cooks the food more evenly. By controlling the movement of heated air, convection cooking produces evenly browned foods that are crispy on the outside yet moist inside. Convection cooking works best for breads and pastries as well as meats and poultry. Air-leavened foods like angel food cakes, soufflés and cream puffs rise higher than in a conventional oven. Meats stay juicy and tender while the outside is flavorful and crisp. By using Bosch Genuine European Convection, foods can be cooked at a lower temperature and cooking times can be shorter. When using the Convection Bake mode, the standard oven temperature should be lowered by 25°F. Foods requiring a cooking time of less than 30 minutes should be checked slightly earlier than normal. Items that typically cook for 45 minutes or more should take 15-25% less time. For best results, foods should be cooked uncovered, in low-sided pans to take advantage of the forced air circulation.When using the Convection Roast mode, the standard oven temperature does not need to be reduced. Advantages of Convection Cooking • Even baking, browning and crisping are achieved. • During roasting, juices and flavors are sealed in while the exterior is crisp. • Yeast breads are lighter, more evenly textured, more golden and crustier. • Air-leavened foods such as cream puffs, soufflés and meringues are higher and lighter. • Baking on multiple racks at the same time is possible with even results. • Multiple-rack baking saves time. • Prepare whole meals at once with no flavor transfer. • Dehydrates herbs, fruits and vegetables. • Requires no specialized bakeware. • Saves time and energy. • Convection broiling allows for extraordinary grilling with thicker cuts of food.

The arrows represent the location of the heat source during specific modes. The lower element is concealed under the oven floor. CONVECTION ROAST Convection Roast uses the top element, bottom element and convection fan. BAKE and WARMING Baking is cooking with heated air. Both the upper and lower element cycle to maintain the oven temperature. In the Warming mode, the oven will use the lower element to maintain a low temperature to keep food at serving temperature. BROIL Broiling uses intense heat radiated from the upper element. CONVECTION BAKE and DEHYDRATE Convection Bake cooks with heat from a third element behind the back wall of the oven. The heat is circulated throughout the oven by the convection fan. Dehydrating is similar to convection cooking and holds an optimum low temperature while circulating the heated air to remove moisture slowly for food preservation. CONVECTION BROIL Convection Broil combines the intense heat from the upper element with the heat circulated by the convection fan. Page 9 Bosch HBL7 / HBN7 Oven Use and Care Manual Oven Features General Oven Information Before using your Bosch oven for the first time remove all packing and foreign materials from the oven(s). Any material of this sort left in the oven(s) may melt and/ or burn when the oven(s) is(are) used. Power Failure After the power returns to the oven, the clock displays the time when the power was lost or turned off. Default Settings Flashing Symbols or Numbers Signals an incomplete setting and calls for another step or START to be touched. The cooking modes automatically select a suitable temperature. These can be changed when a different one is needed. Beeps F Number Codes Signals that more information must be entered or confirms the receipt of an entry. Beeps also signal the end of a function or an oven fault. These codes are displayed when there is a problem with the signal sent to the electronic control board. See Solving Operational Problems, Page 39. Probe Symbol Convection Fan The probe symbol will be displayed when the probe is inserted into the probe receptacle. The internal temperature of the meat is also displayed in place of the oven roasting temperature. The selected probe temperature can be displayed by touching TEMPERATURE. Oven temperature can be displayed by touching TEMPERATURE two times. The convection fan operates during any convection mode. When the oven is operating in the convection mode, the fan will turn off automatically when the door is opened. The convection fan will run during the preheat time for specific modes. Lock Symbol Displays during the Self-Clean mode and when the door is locked. Do not attempt to open the door when the lock symbol or UNLOCKING DOOR is displayed. Door can be opened when the symbol no longer appears. Component Cooling Fan Activates during any cooking or self-cleaning mode to cool inner components and outer door surfaces. This air is exhausted through the vent located above the oven door. It continues to run until components have cooled sufficiently. Page 10 Bosch HBL7 / HBN7 Oven Use and Care Manual Oven Operations General Oven Tips Preheating the Oven Oven Condensation and Temperature • Preheat the oven when using the Bake, Convection Bake and Convection Roast modes. • Preheating for Convection Roast when using the probe is not recommended. See Pages 20 through 22 for details and tips. • Selecting a higher temperature does not shorten the preheat time. • Preheating is necessary for good results when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. • Preheating will help to sear roasts and seal in meat juices. • Place oven racks in their proper position before preheating. • During preheat, the selected cooking temperature can be displayed by touching TEMPERATURE. • A beep will confirm that the oven is preheated and the selected cooking temperature will be displayed. • Fast Preheat Bake and Fast Preheat Convection Bake can be used when time is crucial. • Oven Racks • • • Operational Suggestions • Use the cooking charts as a guide. • Do not set pans on the opened oven door. • Use the interior oven light to view the food through the oven door window rather than opening the door frequently. Utensils • • • • Glass baking dishes absorb heat. Reduce oven temperature 25°F when baking in glass. • Use pans that give the desired browning. The type of finish on the pan will help determine the amount of browning that will occur. • Shiny, smooth metal or light nonstick/anodized pans reflect heat, resulting in lighter, more delicate browning. Cakes and cookies require this type of utensil. • Dark, rough or dull pans will absorb heat resulting in a browner, crisper crust. Use this type for pies. • For brown, crisp crusts, use dark nonstick/anodized or dark, dull metal utensils or glass bakeware. Insulated baking pans may increase the length of cooking time. • Do not cook with the empty broiler pan in the oven, as this could change cooking performance. Store the broil pan outside of the oven. High Altitude Baking • • • • • The oven has rack guides at four levels as shown in the illustration on Page 7. Rack positions are numbered from the bottom rack guide (#1) to the top (#4). Check cooking charts for best rack positions to use when cooking. Each level guide consists of paired supports formed in the walls on each side of the oven cavity. Always be sure to position the oven racks before turning on the oven. Make sure that the racks are level once they are in position. To remove oven rack from the oven, pull rack forward, lift rack up at front and then remove it. To replace an oven rack: 1. Place rear of rack between rack level guides. 2. While lifting front of rack, slide rack in all the way while lowering the front. Please refer to illustration on Page 7 if there is any question as to which side is the front of the rack. The racks are designed to stop when pulled forward to their limit. CAUTION! Never use aluminum foil to cover the oven racks or to line the oven. It can cause damage to the oven liner if heat is trapped under the foil. 120/240 vs. 120/208 Volt Connection • • When cooking at high altitude, recipes and cooking time will vary from the standard. For accurate information, write the Extension Service, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado 80521. There may be a charge for the bulletins. It is normal for a certain amount of moisture to evaporate from the food during any cooking process. The amount depends on the moisture content of the food. The moisture may condense on any surface cooler than the inside of the oven, such as the control panel. Your new Bosch oven has an electronic temperature sensor that accurately maintains the temperature selected. Your previous oven may have had a mechanical thermostat that drifted gradually over time to a higher temperature. It is normal that you may need to adjust your favorite recipes when cooking in a new oven. • Page 11 Most oven installations will have a 120/240 voltage connection. If your oven is installed with 120/208 voltage, the preheat time may be slightly longer than with 120/ 240 voltage. The Self-Clean mode may also require a longer clean time, depending on the amount of soil.

Page 15 Bosch HBL7 / HBN7 Oven Use and Care Manual Oven Operations Bake Tips and Techniques Baking is cooking with heated air. Both upper and lower elements in the oven are used to heat the air but no fan is used to circulate the heat. Follow the recipe or convenience food directions for baking temperature, time and rack position. Baking time will vary with the temperature of ingredients and the size, shape and finish of the baking utensil. General Guidelines • • For best results, bake food on a single rack with at least 1" space between utensils and oven walls. Use a maximum of two racks when selecting the bake mode. Stagger pans or baking sheets so that one is not directly above another. • Check for doneness at the minimum time. • Use metal bakeware (with or without a nonstick finish), heatproof glass, glass-ceramic, pottery or other utensils suitable for the oven. • When using heatproof glass, reduce temperature by 25°F from recommended temperature. • Use baking sheets with or without sides or jelly roll pans. • Dark metal pans or nonstick coatings will cook faster with more browning. Insulated bakeware will slightly lengthen the cooking time for most foods. • For best results, bake food on a single rack with at least 1-1/2” space between utensils and oven walls. • Do not use aluminum foil or disposable aluminum trays to line any part of the oven. Foil is an excellent heat insulator and heat will be trapped beneath it. This will alter the cooking performance and can damage the finish of the oven. • Avoid using the opened door as a shelf to place pans. • Tips for Solving Baking Problems is found on Page 38. Staggered pans Page 16 Bosch HBL7 / HBN7 Oven Use and Care Manual Oven Operations Bake Cook Chart Do not reduce recipe temperature.

Use shiny aluminum pans for best results unless otherwise specified • Heatproof glass or ceramic can be used. Reduce temperature by another 25°F when using heatproof glass dishes for a total reduction of 50°F. • Dark metal pans may be used. Note that food may brown faster when using dark metal bakeware. • The number of racks used is determined by the height of the food to be cooked. • Baked items, for the most part, cook extremely well in convection. Don’t try to convert recipes such as custards, quiches, pumpkin pie, or cheesecakes, which do not benefit from the convection-heating process. Use the regular Bake mode for these foods. • Multiple rack cooking for oven meals is done on rack positions 1, 2 and 3. All four racks can be used for cookies, biscuits and appetizers. • • • Converting your own recipe can be easy. Choose a recipe that will work well in convection. Reduce the temperature and cooking time if necessary. It may take some trial and error to achieve a perfect result. Keep track of your technique for the next time you want to prepare the recipe using convection. Tips for Solving Baking Problems are found on Page 38. Page 18 Pans do not need to be staggered.

Page 19 Bosch HBL7 / HBN7 Oven Use and Care Manual Oven Operations Convection Roast Tips and Techniques • Preheat for Convection Roast. • Roast in a low-sided, uncovered pan. • When roasting whole chickens or turkey, tuck wings behind back and loosely tie legs with kitchen string. QUICK AND EASY RECIPE TIPS • Use the 3-piece broil pan for roasting uncovered. • Use the probe or a meat thermometer to determine the internal doneness on “END” temperature (see cooking chart). • Double-check the internal temperature of meat/poultry by inserting meat thermometer into another position. • When roasting a large roast or turkey, roasting pan may need to be rotated during roasting time. This will allow for more even cooking. Large birds may also need to be covered with foil (and pan roasted) during a portion of the roasting time to prevent over-browning. Converting from standard BAKE to CONVECTION ROAST: • Temperature does not have to be lowered. • Roasts, large cuts of meat and poultry generally take 10-20% less cooking time. Check doneness early. • Casseroles or pot roasts that are baked covered in CONVECTION ROAST will cook in about the same amount of • The minimum safe temperture for stuffing in poultry is 165ºF (74ºC). • After removing the item from the oven, cover loosely with foil for 10 to 15 minutes before carving. • While covered, roast temperatures increase by 5° to 10°F. Convection Roasting with the Probe • The meat probe can be used to determine the internal doneness or the “END” temperature (see cooking chart, Page 23). • The temperature range for the probe is 130°F to 210°F (55°C to 100°C). The probe automatic default temperature is programmed at 170°F (77°C) but can be set for your recipe. • Preheating the oven for Convection Roast is not recommended when using the probe. A hot oven will impair your ability to easily connect the probe to the receptacle and into the meat. TO USE THE PROBE 1. Prepare meat and place in roasting pan (or on rack in roasting pan as recipe specifies). Insert the probe into the thickest center portion of the meat. 2. Make sure the probe is not touching fat, bone, the roast rack or the pan. 3. Place roasting pan with meat in cold oven on recommended oven rack. Plug probe into the probe receptacle. The probe symbol will appear in display. 4. Touch COOKING MODE and select Convection Roast.

Page 30 no DEFAULT DATA Care and Cleaning Bosch HBL7 / HBN7 Oven Use and Care Manual Oven Care and Cleaning SELF-CLEANING THE OVEN Bosch ovens feature a pyrolytic self-cleaning function that eliminates the difficult and time consuming manual scrubbing of the oven interior. During self-cleaning, the oven uses a very high temperature (approx. 885°F) to burn away food soil and grease. • Only one oven at a time can be set to Self-Clean. • It is common to see smoke and/or an occasional flame-up during the Self-Clean cycle, depending on the content and amount of soil remaining in the oven. If a flame persists, turn off the oven and allow it to cool before opening the door to wipe up the excessive food soil. • The door latch is automatically activated after selecting the Self-Clean cycle. The door lock symbol will appear in the display. This ensures that the door cannot be opened while the oven interior is at clean temperatures. • The oven light does not operate during this mode. • During Self-Clean, the kitchen should be well ventilated to help eliminate odors associated with Self-Clean. Odors will lessen with use. • Three hours is the preset length of cleaning. • The mode automatically stops at the end of the clean hours. • When the oven heat drops to a safe temperature, the automatic door lock will release and the door can be opened. PREPARING THE OVEN FOR SELF-CLEAN 1. Remove all utensils and bakeware. 2. Remove oven racks. If oven racks are left in the oven during the self-clean cycle, they will permanently lose the shiny finish and change to a dull dark finish. See Oven Cleaning Chart for proper care, Pages 33 to 34. 3. Wipe up any soft soil spills and grease with paper towels. Excess grease will cause flames and smoke inside the oven during self-cleaning. 4. Review illustration below. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand before the cycle begins.They do not get hot enough during the cleaning cycle for soil to burn away. Use a soapy sponge or plastic scrubber or a detergent-filled S.O.S.® pad. Hand-clean the oven door edge, oven front frame and up to 1-1/2 inches inside the frame with detergent and hot water. Do not rub the gasket on oven. Hand-clean the oven door window. Rinse all areas thoroughly then dry. 5. Be sure oven interior lights are turned off and the light bulbs and lens covers are in place.
