Important information
Read this instruction manual carefully.
Only then will you be able to operate your cooker
safely and correctly.
Please keep the instruction and installation manual in
a safe place. Please pass on the instruction manual
to the new owner if you sell the appliance.
Before installation
Transport damage
Check the appliance after unpacking it.
Do not connect the appliance if it has been
damaged in transport.
Electrical connection
The cooker may only be connected by an approved
specialist. Losses resulting from damage caused by
incorrect connection will invalidate warranty claims.
Safety information
This appliance is intended for domestic use only.
Only use the cooker for food preparation.
Hot oven
Open the oven door carefully. Hot steam may
escape.
Never touch the internal surfaces of the oven or the
heating elements. There is a risk of burning. Children
must be kept at a safe distance from the appliance.
Never store combustible items in the oven.
Risk of fire.
Never clamp leads of electrical appliances in the hot
oven door. The insulation on the leads could melt.
There is a risk of short-circuiting.
6
Repairs
Incorrectly done repairs are dangerous.
There is a risk of electrocution.
Repairs may only be carried out by after-sales
service technicians who have been fully trained by
BSH.
If there is a fault, switch off the oven fuse at the fuse
box. Call the after-sales service.
Reasons for damage
Baking tray, aluminium foil
or dishes on the oven floor
Do not place the baking tray on the oven floor.
Do not cover it with aluminium foil.
Do not place dishes on the oven floor.
This will cause heat accumulation. The baking and
roasting times will no longer be correct and the
enamel will be damaged.
Slide-in accessories
To avoid damage, insert slide-in accessories
carefully.
Water in the oven
Never pour water directly into a hot oven.
This could damage the enamel.
Fruit juice
When baking very moist fruit cakes, do not put too
much on the baking sheet. Fruit juice dripping from
the baking sheet leaves stains that cannot be
removed.
It is recommended that you use the deeper universal
pan.
Cooling with the oven door
open
Only leave the oven to cool with the door closed. Do
not allow anything to become trapped in the oven
door. Even if you only leave the oven door open
slightly, the fronts of adjacent units may become
damaged over time.
Very dirty oven seal
If the oven seal is very dirty, the oven door will no
longer close properly when the oven is in use. The
fronts of adjacent units could be damaged. Keep the
oven seal clean.
Using the oven door as a
seat
Do not stand or sit on the oven door.

Types of heating
Main oven
Different types of oven heating are available. You can
therefore select the best method for cooking any
dish.
3D hot air
A fan in the rear panel distributes the heat from the
ring heating element evenly inside the oven.
Using 3D hot air, it is possible to bake cakes and
pizza on two shelves. You can cook biscuits and puff
pastry on three levels at the same time. The required
oven temperatures are lower than those for top and
bottom heating. Additional baking trays may be
obtained from specialist shops.
3D hot air is ideal for drying food.
Defrosting
A fan in the rear panel circulates the air in the oven
around the frozen food. Frozen pieces of meat,
poultry, bread and cakes defrost evenly
11
Types of heating
Mini oven
Different types of oven heating are available. You can
therefore select the best method for cooking any
dish.
Top and bottom heating
This ensures the even distribution of heat onto the
cake or roast from the top and bottom of the oven.
This type of heating is best for cake mixtures in tins
or for bakes. Top and bottom heating is also suitable
for cooking lean roasts of beef, veal and game.
Radiant grill – large area
The entire area under the grill element becomes hot.
This is ideal if you wish to cook several steaks,
sausages, fish or slices of toast.
12
Oven and shelving
accessories

Your oven features 2 shelf positions.
The shelf positions are counted from bottom to top.
The numbers are marked in the oven.
Main oven
The shelf can be inserted at 5 different heights in the
oven.
You can remove the shelf two thirds of the way
without it tipping. This makes it easier to take food
out of the oven.
Accessories
Accessories may be purchased at a later date from
the after–sales service or from specialist shops.
Please specify the HEZ number.
HEZ 334000 wire rack
For ovenware, cake tins, roasts, grilling and frozen
meals.

liquid. Dry it with a soft cloth.
Caustic or abrasive substances are not suitable. If
any such substances come into contact with the
frontage, wipe it off immediately with water.
Notes
Slight differences in the colours on the appliance
front are caused by the use of different materials,
such as glass, plastic and metal.
Shadows on the door panel which resemble smears
are reflections from the oven light.
23
Appliances with stainless
steel fronts
Always remove any flecks of limescale, grease,
cornflour and egg white immediately. Corrosion can
form under such flecks.
Use stainless steel care products. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions. Try out the product on a
small area first, before using on the whole surface.
Appliances with aluminium
fronts
Use a mild window-cleaning detergent. Wipe the
area with a soft window cloth or a fluff-free
micro-fibre cloth, using a horizontal action without
applying pressure.
Aggressive cleaning products, scratchy sponges and
rough cleaning cloths are not suitable.
Oven
Never use coarse scouring pads or cleaning
sponges. Oven cleaner may only be used on
enamelled oven surfaces
For ease of cleaning
you can switch on the oven light and detach the
oven door.
Detaching the oven door
The oven door can be easily detached.
When pulling the door out, make sure that you
do not reach into the hinge. There is a risk of injury.
1. Open the oven door fully.
2. Move the two locking levers on the left and
right-hand sides.
3. Half-close the oven door.
With both hands, grip the door on the left and
right-hand sides.
Close the door a little more and pull it out.
After cleaning, refit the oven door in the reverse order
to removal.
24
Cleaning the catalytic
surfaces of the oven
The rear wall and the top of the oven are coated
with self-cleaning enamel. The surfaces clean
themselves while the oven is in operation. Large
splashes may only disappear after the oven has
been used several times.
Never use oven cleaner on self-cleaning surfaces.
If the self-cleaning surfaces of the oven are no
longer cleaning themselves sufficiently, they can be
regenerated using the cleaning function.
Should the enamel become slightly stained, this will
not affect its self-cleaning properties.
Cleaning the oven floor
and the side walls
Use hot soapy water or a vinegar solution.
It is best to use oven cleaner if the oven is very dirty.
Only use oven cleaner in a cold oven.
Never use oven cleaner on the self-cleaning surfaces
of the oven.
Note:
Enamel is baked on at very high temperatures. This
can cause some slight colour variation. This is
normal and does not affect the function. Do not use
coarse scouring pads or strong cleaning agents to
remove such discolorations.
The edges of thin trays cannot be completely
enamelled. As a result, these edges can be rough.
Anti-corrosion protection is guaranteed.
Cleaning the glass cover
for the oven light
It is best to clean the glass cover with washing-up
liquid.

Tables and tips
This table contains a selection of dishes and the
optimum settings at which to cook them. You can
find out which type of heating and temperature is
best for your dish, which accessories to use, and at
which oven level the dish should be inserted. You will
find a variety of tips about ovenware and
preparation, and a small troubleshooting section in
case anything should go wrong.
Cakes and pastries
Baking tins
It is best to use dark baking tins. You should use
3D-hot air when using thin baking tins, or glass
containers. This means, however, that the baking
time is increased and the cake does not brown so
evenly.
Always place the cake tin on the wire rack.
Tables
The values in the table apply to dishes placed in a
cold oven. This saves energy. Shorten the baking
times indicated by 5 to 10 minutes if you have
preheated the oven.
The tables show which type of heating is best for
different cakes and bakes.
The temperature and cooking time you select
depends on the quantity and type of pastry. This is
why „ranges“ are given in the tables. You should try
to use a lower temperature setting to start with,
since this allows more even browning. If necessary,
use a higher temperature setting the next time.
More information can be found in the „Baking tips“
section which follows the tables.

Baking tips
You wish to cook to your own
recipe.
Refer to the instructions in the tables for similar types of food.
How to check that a sponge
cake is cooked properly.
Approximately 10 minutes before the end of the baking time given
in the recipe, pierce the tallest point of the cake with a cocktail
stick. The cake is done if the cocktail stick comes out clean.
The cake collapses.
Next time, use less liquid or decrease the oven temperature by
10 degrees. Observe the cooking times in the recipe.
The cake has risen in the centre
but is lower at the edges.
Do not grease the sides of the springform cake tin. As soon as the
cake is done, carefully loosen the cake around the edges using a
knife.
The cake is too dark at the top.
Insert it at a lower level in the oven, select a lower temperature and
cook the cake a little while longer.
The cake is too dry.
Use a toothpick to make small holes in the finished cake. Then
drizzle fruit juice or alcohol over the top. Next time you should
decrease the temperature by around 10 degrees and reduce the
baking times.
The bread or cake (e.g.
cheesecake) looks fine, but is
soggy on the inside (soft, with
watery areas).
Next time you should add a little less liquid and cook for a little
longer at a lower temperature. Cakes with fruit topping: Precook the
base first of all. Sprinkle with almonds or breadcrumbs and then
place the topping over this. Please observe the recipe and the
baking times.
The pastry is unevenly browned.
Select a slightly lower temperature to ensure that the pastry is
baked more evenly. Baking paper that protrudes over the food can
affect the air circulation. For this reason, always cut the baking
paper to fit the baking tray.
The fruit cake is too light at the
Use the deeper universal pan next time.
bottom. The fruit juice flows over.
You were baking on several
levels. The food on the top
baking tray is darker than that
on the bottom baking tray.
Always use 3D hot air when baking on several levels. Baking
trays that are placed in the oven at the same time will not
necessarily be ready at the same time.
Condensation is formed when
baking cakes containing fresh
fruit.
Baking may result in the formation of water vapour. It escapes
above the door handle. The steam may settle and form water
droplets on the control panel or on the fronts of adjacent units.
This is a normal physical process.
36
Meat, poultry, fish
Ovenware
You may use any heat-resistant dishes. The universal
pan is also suitable for larger roasts.
Always place the dishes in the centre of the wire
rack.
Hot glass dishes should be placed on a dry kitchen
towel after being removed from the oven. The glass
could crack if placed on a cold or wet surface.
Advice on roasting
The roasting result depends on the type and quality
of meat.
Add 2 to 3 soup spoons of liquid to lean meat, and
8 to 10 soup spoons of liquid to pot roasts,
depending on the size.
Meat should be turned half way through the cooking
time.
When the roast is ready, switch off the oven and
leave the roast to stand for 10 minutes with the oven
door closed. This allows the meat juices to distribute
more favourably.
Advice on grilling
Always close the oven door when grilling.
If possible, use pieces of meat which are of the
same thickness. They should be at least 2 to 3 cm
thick. Such pieces will be browned evenly and stay
juicy and soft in the middle. Only salt the steaks after
they have been grilled.
Place the pieces of meat directly onto the wire rack.
If you are grilling just one piece of meat, it will turn
out best if you place it in the centre of the wire rack.
You should also insert the universal pan at level 1.
The meat juices are collected here and the oven is
kept clean.
Turn the pieces of meat after two thirds of the
cooking time indicated.
The grill element automatically switches itself off and
back on again. This is normal. The number of times
this happens depends on the grill setting you have
selected.

Tips for roasting
and grilling
The table does not contain
information for the weight
of the roast.
Select the next lowest weight from the instructions and extend the
time.
How can you tell when the roast
is ready?
Use a meat thermometer (available from specialist shops) or carry
out a „spoon test“. Press down on the roast with a spoon. If it feels
firm, it is ready. If the spoon can be pressed in, it needs to be
cooked for a little longer.
The roast is too dark and the
crackling is partly burnt.
Check the shelf position and temperature.
The roast looks good, but the
juices are burnt.
Next time, use a smaller roasting dish or add more liquid.
The roast looks good, but the
juices are too clear and watery.
Next time, use a larger roasting dish or add less liquid.
Defrosting
Main oven
Remove the food from its packaging and place it in a
suitable dish on the wire rack.
Please observe the instructions on the packaging.
The defrosting times depend on the type and amount
of food.

Energy saving tips
Only preheat the oven if it specifies in the recipe or in
the table in the instruction manual that you should do
so.
Use non-stick, black painted or enamelled tins.
They absorb the heat especially well.
If you have several cakes to bake it is best to bake
them one after the other. The oven is still warm. This
shortens the baking time for the second cake. You
can also put two baking tins in one after the other.
For long cooking times, the oven can be switched off
10 minutes before the end of the cooking time and
the remaining heat can be used to finish the cooking.
Acrylamide in food
Experts are currently discussing how dangerous
acrylamide in food can be. We have compiled this
information sheet for you on the basis of current
research.
Where does acrylamide
come from?
Acrylamide in food does not come from external
contamination. It is formed in the food itself during
preparation – provided that the food contains
carbohydrate and protein. Exactly how this happens
has not yet been completely explained. However, it
appears that the acrylamide content is strongly
influenced by
high temperatures
a low water content in food
intensive browning of the food.
40
What sort of foods are
afected?
Acrylamide forms mostly in grain and potato
products that are prepared at high temperatures,
e.g.:
crisps, chips,
toast, rolls, bread,
baked goods made from shortcrust pastry (speciality
biscuits and cakes).
What can you do?
You can avoid high levels of acrylamide when baking,
frying and grilling.
The following recommendations were published by
AID1 and BMVEL2 to help you minimise acrylamide
levels:
In general
Keep cooking times as short as possible.
„Brown rather than burn“ – cook food only until it is
golden brown.
The larger and thicker the food is, the less
acrylamide it contains.
Baking
Set the temperature to a maximum of 180 ºC for the
3D hot air setting.
Cookies: Set the temperature to a maximum of
170 ºC for the 3D hot air setting. The presence of
egg or egg yolk in a recipe reduces the formation of
acrylamide.
Spread oven chips evenly over the baking sheet in
one layer where possible. To prevent the food from
drying out quickly, place at least 400 g on each
baking sheet.
