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.

Oven Modes
The following illustrations give an overview of what
happens in the oven with each mode setting. 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.

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.

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.

Convection Bake Tips and Techniques
•
Reduce recipe baking temperatures by 25°F.
•
For best results, foods should be cooked
uncovered, in low-sided pans to take advantage of
the forced air circulation. 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.

QUICK AND EASY RECIPE TIPS
Converting from standard BAKE
to CONVECTION BAKE:
•
Reduce the temperature by 25°F.
•
Use the same baking time as Bake mode if
under 10 to 15 minutes.
•
Foods with a baking time of less than 30
minutes should be checked for doneness
5 minutes earlier than in standard bake
recipes.
•
If food is baked for more than 40 to 45
minutes, bake time should be reduced by
25%.

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. CONVECTION ROAST will flash and the

Broil Tips and Techniques
•
Place rack in the required position needed before turning on the oven.
•
Start broiling with a cool oven and broiler pan. There is no need to preheat oven for broiling.
•
Broil with the oven door positioned at the Broil door stop (open door broiling).
•
Use the three-piece broil pan for Broil.
•
Brush fish and lean cuts of meat with vegetable oil before broiling to prevent sticking.
•
Start broiling poultry with skin side down.
•
Turn food after one half of total cooking time. Thicker cuts of meat or poultry can be turned more often.
•
Slotted top racks on broiler pan let fat drip away, reducing spattering and smoking.
•
When top-browning casseroles, use only metal or glass-ceramic (Pyroceram™) such as Corningware®
bakeware.
•
Never use heat-proof glass (Pyrexware®) pottery; they cannot tolerate the high temperatures.
•
Refer to Page 14 for setting Broil mode.

Dehydrate Tips and Techniques
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Dehydrating can be done using the Dehydrate mode. A lower temperature is used and the circulating
heated air slowly removes the moisture for food preservation.
The Dehydrate mode temperature is preprogrammed at 140ºF (60ºC).
The Dehydrate mode temperatures available are 120ºF (49ºC) to 160ºF (71ºC).
Multiple racks can be used simultaneously.
Some foods require as much as 14-15 hours of time to fully dehydrate.
Consult a food preservation book for specific times and the handling of various foods.
This mode is suitable for a variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs and meat strips.
Drying screens can be purchased at specialty kitchen shops.
By using paper towels, some food moisture can be absorbed before dehydrating begins (such as with
sliced tomatoes or sliced peaches).
Warming Tips and Techniques
•
•
•
•
•
Call on your oven Warming mode to keep foods hot until you are ready to serve them.
The Warming mode default temperature is preprogrammed at 170°F (75°C).
Warming mode temperatures available are 100°F to 210°F (38ºC to 99ºC).
Recommended safe temperatures for keeping foods hot are between 140°F and 210°F (66ºC to 99ºC).
Use the chart below as a guide.
Foods needing to be kept moist should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil.

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. See Pages 13 and 37.

note the code number and call an authorized servicer.
F121
This is caused by close contact to the control panel for more than 60
seconds, such as someone leaning against the controls or objects hanging
in front of controls. See item above for correction.
Cooling fan continues to run
after oven is turned off
The fan turns off automatically when the electronic components have
cooled sufficiently.
Oven door is locked and will
not release, even after cooling
Turn the oven off at the circuit breaker and wait 5 minutes. Turn breaker
back on. The oven should reset itself and will be operable.
Oven is not heating
Check the circuit breaker or fuse box to your house. Make sure there is
proper electrical power to the oven. Make sure the oven temperature has
been selected.
Oven is not cooking evenly
Check oven calibration. Adjust calibration if necessary (see Calibrating
Oven Temperature, Page 28). Refer to cook charts for recommended rack
position. Always reduce recipe temperature by 25°F when baking with
Convention Bake mode.
Oven temperature is too hot
or too cold
Oven light is not working
properly
Oven light stays on
Cannot remove lens cover on
light
Oven will not Self-Clean
properly
The oven thermostat needs adjustment. See Calibrating Oven Temperature,
Page 28.
Replace or reinsert the light bulb if loose or defective. See Page 37.
Touching the bulb with fingers may cause the bulb to burn out.
Check for obstruction in oven door. Check to see if hinge is bent.
There may be a soil build-up around the lens cover. Wipe lens cover area
with a clean dry towel prior to attempting to remove the lens cover.
Allow the oven to cool before running Self-Clean. Always wipe out loose
soils or heavy spill-over before running Self-Clean. If oven is badly soiled, set
oven for a four-hour Self-Clean. See Preparing the Oven to Self-Clean, Page 31.
Make sure there is proper electrical power to the oven. See the Clock
and Timer sections on Pages 12 and 13.
When using Bake mode, preheat the oven first. Convection Bake and
Convection Roast will eliminate any moisture in oven (this is one of the
advantages of convection).
When oven racks are removed and replaced, always tilt racks upward and
do not force them to avoid chipping the porcelain.
Clock and timer are not
working properly
