IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking and Toxic
Enforcement Act requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances
known to the state to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm, and
requires businesses to warn customers of
potential exposure to such substances.
WARNING
When properly cared for, your new Bosch range has
been designed to be a safe, reliable appliance. Read all
instructions carefully before using this range. These
precautions will reduce the risk of burns, electric shock,
fire, and injury to persons. Do not operate the oven or
cooktop controls if the glass is broken. Food splatter or
cleaning solution may penetrate a broken control panel
and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified
technician immediately should your glass control panel
become broken. When using kitchen appliances, basic
safety precautions must be followed, including those in
the following pages.
The elimination of soil during self-cleaning
generates some by-products which are on
the list.
The fiberglass insulation in self-clean ovens
gives off very small amounts of formaldehyde
during the first several cleaning cycles.
Exposure to these substances can be
minimized by:
1. Providing good ventilation when cooking
with gas
2. Providing good ventilation during and
immediately after self cleaning the oven.
3. Operating the unit according to the
instructions in this manual.
The Bosch range referred to thoughout this manual is manufactured by BSH Home Appliance Corp.

• Do not operate this appliance if it is not working properly
or if it has been damaged, until an authorized servicer has
examined it.
• Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in
this manual. If you have any questions, contact the
manufacturer.
• Do not cover or block any openings on this appliance.
• Do not use corrosive chemicals, vapors, or nonfood products
in this appliance. This type of range is specifically designed
to heat or cook. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory
use. The use of corrosive chemicals in heating or cleaning
will damage the appliance.
• In the event that personal clothing or hair catches fire,
DROP AND ROLL IMMEDIATELY to extinguish flames.
• Do not allow children to use this appliance unless closely
supervised by an adult. Children and pets should not be left
alone or unattended in the area where the appliance is in
use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any
part of the appliance.
• Tie long hair so that it does not hang loose.
• The heating elements may be hot even though they are not
red in color. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough
to cause burns.
• Do not touch heating elements or interior surfaces of oven
during operation.
• During and after use, do not touch or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact the heating elements or the
interior surfaces of the oven until they have had sufficient
time to cool.
• The trim on the sides of the oven door may become hot
enough to cause burns.
• Use care when opening the door. Open the door slightly to
let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing
food.
• Do not heat unopened food containers. Build-up of pressure
may cause the container to burst and cause injury.
• Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is
cool. If a rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let
potholder contact the hot heating elements.
• Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot
surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder
touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other
bulky cloth.
• Keep the oven free from grease build up.
• Do not place food directly on oven bottom.
• When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven, follow the
manufacturer’s directions.
• Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottoms, except as
suggested in this manual. Improper installation of aluminum
foil many result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
• To avoid electric shock, do not operate the oven without the
light bulb cover in place.
PERSONAL SAFETY
WARNING
To reduce the risk of injury to persons, in the event of a
grease fire, observe the following:
• In the event of a grease fire SMOTHER FLAMES with a closefitting lid, cookie sheet, or other metal tray, then turn off the
elements. BE CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the flames do
not go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT.
• Do not use water, including wet dishcloths or towels on grease
fires. A violent steam explosion may result.
• SMOTHER FLAMES from other types of food fires with baking
soda. NEVER use water on cooking fires.
• NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN. You may be burned.
• ALWAYS have a working SMOKE DETECTOR near the kitchen.
• LEAVE THE HOOD VENTILATOR ON when flambéing food.
• Use an extinguisher ONLY IF:
• You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already
know how to operate it.
• The fire is small and contained in the area where it started.
• The fire department is being called.
• You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
COOKTOP SAFETY
• Do not cook on a cooktop in which the glass top has broken.
If the cooktop glass should break, do not use it or attempt
to clean or fix it. Cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric
shock. Turn off electric circuit to the cooktop and call an
authorized service agency immediately.
• When using the cooktop, DO NOT TOUCH THE HOT
COOKING AREA OR THE IMMEDIATE SURROUNDING
AREA. Even though dark in color, these areas may be hot.
Areas adjacent to the elements may become hot enough to
cause burns. Never let clothing, potholders, or other
flammable materials come in contact with a cooking area
until it has cooled.
• Use high heat settings on the cooktop only when necessary. Use
low to medium settings to heat oil slowly.
• Never move a pan of hot oil, especially a deep fat fryer. Wait until
it is cool.

Important Safety Instructions
Please read all instructions before using this appliance.
SELF-CLEANING SAFETY
COOKTOP SAFETY (cont’d)
• Never leave the cooktop unattended. Boilovers can cause smoke
and possibly damage the cooktop.
• Hold the handle of the pan to prevent movement of the utensil
when stirring or turning food.
• Other than the use of metal pans, only certain types of glass,
heatproof glass ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktop use. Other types of utensils may
break with sudden temperature changes. Use only on low or
medium heat settings according to the utensil manufacturer’s
directions.
OVEN SAFETY
To reduce the risk of fire:
• Do not store flammable materials in or near the oven.
• Do not use water on a grease fire. Smother fire or use
a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
• Have an appropriate fire extinguisher available and
highly visible near any cooking appliance.
• Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not
leave paper products, cooking utensils or food in the cavity
when not being used.
• If materials inside the oven should ignite, keep oven
door closed.Turn off oven and disconnect the circuit at the
circuit breaker box.
• Do not block any vent openings.
• Never use the oven to warm or heat a room. This can
damage the oven parts.
• Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while
using the appliance. Be careful when reaching for items
stored over the range. Flammable material could be ignited
if brought in contact with hot surface units or heating
elements and may cause severe burns.
• Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the
oven door, warming drawer door, storage drawer or
cooktop. This can damage the range and even tip it over,
causing severe personal injury.
• Have the installer show the location of the circuit
breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy reference.
• Confirm that the door locks and will not open once the
door lock indicator icon appears. If the door does not
lock, touch OFF and do not run Self-Clean. Phone
800/944-2904 for service.
• Note: During a normal Self-Clean cycle, the door will not
lock until the oven reaches 450º F. In a Delayed Self-Clean
cycle, the door locks immediately.
• Do not clean the oven gasket. It is essential for a good seal.
Care should be taken not to rub, damage, move or remove
the oven gasket.
• Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven liner protective
coatings of any kind in or around any part of the oven.
• Clean only oven parts listed in this manual.
• Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan,
oven racks, oven probe, other utensils and wipe out
excess soft spillage.
REGARDING PET BIRDS:
Birds have very sensitive respiratory systems. Keep pet birds
out of the kitchen or other rooms where kitchen fumes could
reach them. During self clean, fumes are released that may
be harmful to birds. Other kitchen fumes such as overheating
margarines and cooking oils may also be harmful.
WARMING DRAWER SAFETY

Cooktop Features
Radiant Elements
Before Using the Cooktop
• Remove all packing materials and labels from the cooktop
surface.
• While cool, wipe with a clean, damp sponge and dry.
• Apply the Cooktop Cleaning Creme packaged with the
range. Buff with a clean cloth. See Care and Cleaning
Section.
• There may be a slight odor during the first several uses;
this is normal and will disappear.
• Optimum cooking results depend on the proper cookware
being selected and used.
• The cooking surface will hold the heat and remain hot up
to 30 minutes after the elements have been turned off.
• Read and understand all safety precautions and Use and
Care Manual information prior to operating.
Precautions for Long Life and Good
Appearance of the Surface
Bosch UltraSpeedTM radiant elements use a wire ribbon located
under the ceramic glass surface to provide the heat for cooking.
These radiant elements will cycle on and off by design (see
Temperature Limiters at left.) There are 9 heat setting positions
from 9 (high) to 1 (low) and a special setting for keep warm.
Dual Element
The dual element consists of two radiant ribbon elements
within the same heating area. Either the small inner element
or both the inner and outer elements may be selected for use,
depending on the size of cookware.
Triple Element (Some Models)
The Triple Element, located in the left front position, consists
of three radiant ribbon elements within the same heating
area, one, two or three elements can be selected.
• Defaults to largest element.
• Touch POT SIZING once for medium size.
• Touch POT SIZING twice for small size.
• Regular, daily care using the Cooktop Cleaning Creme will
protect the surface and make it easier to remove food soil
and water spots.
• The ceramic glass cooking surface is a durable material
resistant to impact but not unbreakable if a pan or other
object is dropped on it.
• Never cook food directly on the glass.
• Avoid placing a wok support ring, trivet or other metal
stand on the glass surface.
• Do not use the glass surface as a cutting board.
• Do not slide cookware across the cooking surface; it may
scratch the glass.
• Do not place wet pans on the glass surface.
Use this chart as a guide for heat settings:
Uses
Retained Heat
The glass cooking surface retains heat and stays hot after
the element(s) have been turned off. The retained heat may
be used to hold foods at serving temperatures for a short
time. If a hot surface light is on, use caution when working
or cleaning around the cooktop as the cooktop is still hot.
Temperature Limiters
Each radiant heating element has its own sensor to protect
the glass cooking surface from extreme high temperatures.
The limiters will operate automatically by cycling the element
off regardless of the cook setting.
Although cycling is normal, any one of the following conditions
can activate the limiter and cause it to cycle on and off more
than usual:
• The base of the pan is not making full contact with the
heating surface (due to a warped or uneven base).
• The pan is too small for the size of the element.
• The pan has boiled dry.
• The material or shape of the pan is slow to transfer the
heat.

208/240 Volt Connection: The Heat Settings recommended
on this page are based on a 240 volt power source. If your
cooktop is connected to 208 volts, the same heat settings
apply but foods may take a little longer to finish cooking.

Oven Features
Oven Racks
Your oven has three racks: 2 flat and one telescopic or three
flat. They are designed with a stop so they will stop before
coming completely out and not tilt.
CAUTION: TO AVOID POSSIBLE BURNS, PLACE
OVEN RACKS IN DESIRED POSITIONS BEFORE
TURNING THE OVEN ON. ALWAYS USE OVEN MITTS
WHEN THE OVEN IS WARM.
Removing from oven: Grasp rack firmly on both sides and
pull rack toward you. When the stop is reached, tilt rack up
and pull the rest of the way out.
Replacing in oven: Grasp rack firmly on both sides. Tilt
rack up to allow stop into rack holder. Bring rack to a horizontal
position and push the rest of the way in. Rack should be
straight and flat, not crooked.
Telescopic Rack: The telescopic rack allows for easier
access to cooking food. To use, pull out both sections first.
When stop is reached, pull out top section until stop is reached.
To remove telescopic rack, with top section in closed
position, grasp entire rack (both sections) firmly on both
sides. When the stop is reached, tilt rack up and pull the rest
of the way out.
Rack Position
(see graphic at right for further details)
RACK 6 (highest position) – Use for melting cheese, broiling
thin foods
RACK 5 – Use for broiling most meats, toasting bread
RACK 4 – Use for broiling thicker meats
RACK 3 – Use for most baked goods when baking on one
rack, such as on a cookie sheet or baking pan, cakes, frozen
convenience foods, biscuits, brownies, muffins
RACK 2 – Used for pies, casseroles, breads, bundt or pound
cakes, small roasts or poultry,
RACK 1 (lowest position) – Use for angel food cake, large
roasts, turkey.
Preheating is necessary for good results when baking cakes,
cookies, pastry and breads. When using the probe preheating
is not recommended. Setting a higher temperature does not
shorten preheat time. Place oven racks in proper position
before preheating. A beep will confirm that the oven is
preheated and the selected oven temperature will be displayed.
Pan Placement
Baking results are better if pans are placed in the center of the
oven. If baking more than one pan on a rack, allow at least
1" to 1 ½” of air space around the pan. When baking four cake
layers at the same time, place pans on two racks so that one
pan is not directly above the other. Do not place food directly
on oven bottom.
Baking Pans
Glass baking dishes absorb heat, therefore reduce oven
temperature 25°F when baking in glass.
Shiny, smooth metal reflects heat resulting in lighter, more
delicate browning.
Dark, rough or dull pans will absorb heat resulting in browner,
crisper crust. Some manufacturers recommended reducing
temperature 25° F when using this type of pan. Follow
manufacturer recommendations. Use glass or dark metal pans
for pies.
Insulated baking pans may increase the length of the
recommended baking time.

Oven Modes - Bake and Convection Bake
CONVECTION BAKE
BAKE, PROOF (some models) and
WARM
Baking is cooking with dry, heated air. Both the upper and
lower element cycle to maintain the oven temperature:
The Bake mode can be used to prepare a variety of food
items, from pastries to casseroles. It can also be used to roast
meats.
In the Warming mode, the oven uses the upper and lower
element to maintain a low temperature to keep food at serving
temperature.
• Use the Warming setting on the oven to keep foods hot
until ready to serve.
• The Warming mode temperatures are 140° - 220° F. The
default temperature is 170°.
• Foods that need to be kept moist should be covered with
a lid or aluminum foil.
In the Proofing mode, the oven will use the upper and
lower element to maintain a low temperature to proof bread.
Proofing is the rising of a yeast dough.
• The Proofing mode temeratures are 85° to 105° F. The
default temperature is 100°.
• Loosely cover the bowl or pan and use any rack that
accomodates the size of the container.
• Keep the door closed and use the oven light to check
the rising of the dough.
*The convection bake temperature is 25°F less than
recommended on packages or recipes. The temperture in this
chart has been reduced 25°F.
**This chart is a guide. Actual times depend on the mixes or
recipes baked. Follow recipe or package directions and reduce
temperature appropriately.
Convection Baking is similar to Baking. In this case, heat
comes from the lower heating element and a third element
behind the backwall. The main difference in convection baking
is that the heat is circulated throughout the oven by the
convection fan:
The Convection Bake mode is well-suited for baking large
quantities of food on multiple racks. It can be used to prepare
cookies, pies, cupcakes, pastries, breads, snack foods and
appetizers among other items.
The benefits of Convection Baking include:
• Slight decrease in cooking time
• Three rack cooking (more even browning)
• Higher Volume (yeast items rise higher)
• Cook more items at once
For Best Results:
• Reduce recipe temperature by 25° F. Refer to the
Convection Baking chart for examples.
• Place food in low-sided, uncovered pans such as cookie
sheets without sides.
• Center baking pans side to side on the oven rack.

Oven Modes - Broil and Convection Broil
CONVECTION BROIL
BROIL
Broiling uses intense heat radiated from the upper element:
The Broil mode is best suited to cooking thin, tender cuts of
meat (1” or less), poultry and fish. It can also be used to
brown breads and casseroles.
The benefits of Broiling include:
• Fast and efficient cooking
• Cooking without the addition of fats or liquids
• Browning as the food cooks
For Best Results:
• Preheat oven 3-4 minutes
• Steaks and Chops should be at least 3/4” thick
• Brush fish and poultry with butter or oil to prevent sticking
• Use the broil pan and grid included with your range
• Do not cover the broiler grid with foil. It is designed to
drain fats and oils away from the cooking surface to
prevent smoking and spattering
• Turn meats once halfway through the recommended
cooking time (see Broil Chart for examples).
• When top browning casseroles, use only metal or glass
ceramic dishes such as Corningware®.
• Never use heat-proof glass (Pyrex®); they cannot tolerate
the high temperature.

Convection Broil is similar to Broil. It combines the intense
heat from the upper element with heat circulated by the
convection fan:
The Convection Broil mode is well suited for cooking thicker,
tender cuts of meat, poultry and fish. Convection Broil is
typically not recommended for browning breads, casseroles
and other foods.
The benefits of Convection Broiling, in addition to the benefits
of standard broiling, include:
• Faster cooking than standard Broiling
For Best Results:
• Preheat oven 3-4 minutes
• Meats should be at least 1 1/2” thick
• Turn meats once halfway through the cooking time (See
Convection Broil Chart for examples)
• Use the broil pan and grid included with your range
• Do not cover the broiler grid with foil. It is designed to
drain fats and oils away from the cooking surface to
prevent smoking and spattering
• Salt after cooking

The Convection Roast mode is well suited to preparing tender
cuts of meat and poultry.
The benefits of Convection Roasting, include:
• As much as 25% faster cooking than standard Roasting/
Baking
• Rich, golden browning
For Best Results:
• Use the same temperature as indicated in the recipe.
• Check doneness early as roasting time may decrease by
as much as 25%. Refer to Convection Roast Chart for
examples.
• Do not cover meat or use cooking bags.
• Use the broil pan and grid provided with the range for
roasting. A low-sided, uncovered pan can also be used.
• Use the probe (some models) or a meat thermometer to
determine the internal temperature of the meat.
• If the meat is browned to your liking, but is not yet done,
a small strip of foil can be placed over the breast to
prevent overbrowning.
• Let meat stand covered with foil 10-15 minutes after
removing from the oven.

Dehydrating is used to dry and/or preserve foods such as
fruits, vegetables and herbs. This mode holds an optimum
low temperature (100° F - 160° F) while circulating the heated
air to slowly remove moisture.
For Best Results:
• Dry most fruits and vegetables at 140° F. Dry herbs at
100° F. (Refer to the Dehydrate Chart for examples).
• Drying times vary depending on the moisture and sugar
content of the food, the size of the pieces, the amount
being dried and the humidity in the air. Check food at the
minimum drying time.
• Multiple racks can be used simultaneously. Contact your
Bosch dealer for drying racks.
• Treat fruits with antioxidants to avoid discoloration.
• Consult a food preservation book, county Cooperative
Extension Office or library for additional information.
The door must be open during the Dehydrate mode.
Prop the door open at least 1" by placing an object (i.e.;
wooden spoon) in the upper corner between the door and
the side panel. Becareful that the object does not touch

Using the Probe (some models)
•
•
•
•
The probe can be used to determine the internal doneness
or the “END” temperature of many foods, especially meats
and poultry.
The temperature range for the probe is 135°F to 200°F
(57°C to 93°C).
Preheating the oven 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.
Oven temperature can be set for 100°F up to 450°F (38°C
up to 232°C).
INSERTING THE PROBE
Insert the probe tip into the food item.
• For meats, insert the probe tip into the thickest part
and not touch bone, fat, or gristle.
• For large poultry products and turkeys, insert the
probe in the thickest part of the inner thigh.
• For other foods, such as a meatloaf, the probe tip
should be located in the center of the thickest part of
the food.
USING THE PROBE
1. Prepare meat and place in roasting pan (or on rack in
roasting pan as recipe specifies). Insert the probe into
the meat (See “Inserting the Probe”, above).
2. Make sure the probe is not touching gristle, 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.
Note: The probe temperature can only be set when
the probe is installed in the oven.
4. Touch COOKING MODE and select BAKE,
CONVECTION BAKE or CONVECTION ROAST. The
default oven temperature will appear.
5. Turn knob to change temperature if necessary.
6. Touch START.
7. Turn knob to set the probe temperature (desired end
temperature of the food.

TEMPERATURE. The oven temperature will flash.
Press STARTand the PROBE TEMP will flash. Turn
the knob to desired temperature and press START
again.
PROBE USE TIPS
• The oven is well insulated and the retained heat will
continue to cook the meat after the oven has shut off.
For this reason, remove the meat from the oven as
soon as the control beeps.
• Since meat continues to cook after being removed
from the oven, set the internal (probe) temperature 5
- 10 degrees below the desired final internal
temperature. Allow “standing time” (10 - 20 minutes)
before carving the meat.
• Always use the handle of the probe for inserting and
removing. Use a potholder to remove since the probe
becomes hot.
• Remove the probe from the oven when it is not being
used.
• The probe cannot be used with frozen meats. For
best results, completely thaw meats before using
the probe.
Note: Always remove probe from oven when cooking is
complete. The probe symbol will remain in the display until
the probe is removed. Do not leave probe attachment in oven
during self-clean. Oven will not self-clean with the probe
installed in the oven.
The chosen oven temperature is displayed in the upper
right hand corner of the display.
The probe temperature is displayed in the center to the
left of the cooking mode. It increases in 5°F
increments until the chosen temperature is reached.
The oven is preheated when the beep signals once.
When the set probe temperature is reached, END
appears in display and oven turns off.

Care and Cleaning - Glass Cooktop
Before Use Care
Care is easy when preventative steps are taken. For example,
apply a small amount of Cooktop Cleaning Creme (packaged
with range) on a daily basis.
This provides a protective film that makes it easy to remove
water spots or food spatters. The temperature of the cooking
surface reduces the protective qualities of this cleaner. It
must be reapplied before each use.
Use a clean cloth and apply Cooktop Cleaning Creme before
each use to remove dust or metal marks that can occur on the
counter level surface between uses.
Daily Cleaning Techniques
1. Clean the surface when it is completely cool with the
Cooktop Cleaning Crème.
Exception: Remove Dry Sugar, Sugar Syrup, Tomato
Products and Milk immediately with the razor blade
scraper (See Care and Cleaning Chart, next page).
2. Wipe off spatters with a clean, damp sponge or paper
towel. Rinse and dry. Use white vinegar if smudge remains;
rinse.
3. Apply a small amount of the Cooktop Cleaning
Cream. When dry, buff surface with a clean paper towel
or cloth.
Cleaning the
Do Not Use the Following Cleaners
• Glass cleaners which contain ammonia or chlorine
bleach. These ingredients may permanently etch or stain
the cooktop.
• Caustic Cleaners
Oven cleaners such as Easy Off® may etch the cooktop
surface.
• Abrasive Cleaners
Metal scouring pads and scrub sponges such as Scotch
Brite® can scratch and / or leave metal marks.
Soap-filled scouring pads such as SOS® can scratch the
surface.
Powdery cleaners containing chlorine bleach can
permanently stain the cooktop.
Flammable cleaners such as lighter fluid or WD-40.
CAUTION
Do not use any kind of cleaner on the glass while the surface
is hot; use only the razor blade scraper. The resulting fumes
can be hazardous to your health. Heating the cleaner can
chemically attack and damage the surface.
Dial
Remove from cooktop. Wipe with hot, soapy cloth, rinse and
dry. The dial can also be washed in the dishwasher. Do not
soak or wash in dishwasher.
Using the Razor Blade Scraper
Use the scraper to remove dried or baked on foods. Hold the
scraper at a 45° angle. Move it over the soil to lift it off of the
cooktop. Finish with a clean, damp sponge or paper towel.
Apply vinegar if smudge remains and rinse.
Page 23
Care and Cleaning - Glass Cooktop
Cooktop Care Chart
TYPE OF SOIL
POSSIBLE SOLUTION
Dry sugar, sugar syrup, milk or tomato spills. Melted
plastic film or foil. All these items REQUIRE
IMMEDIATE REMOVAL. Remove only these types of
spills while the surface is hot using the razor blade
scraper.
Be sure to use a new, sharp razor in your scraper.
Failure to remove these soils immediately can
permanently damage the surface.
• Remove pan and turn off the element.
• Wearing an oven mitt, hold scraper at 30o angle, using
care not to gouge or scratch the glass. Push soil off the
heated area.
• After the surface has cooled, remove the residue and
apply the Cooktop Cleaning Creme.
•
Burned-on food soil, dark streaks, and specks
Greasy spatters
Metal marks: Iridescent stain
•
•
Use a soapy sponge or cloth to remove grease; rinse
thoroughly and dry. Apply Cooktop Cleaning Creme.
•
Pans with aluminum, copper or stainless steel bases
may leave marks. Treat immediately, after surface has
cooled, with the Cooktop Cleaning Creme. If this does
not remove the metal marks, try a mild abrasive (Bon
Ami®, Soft Scrub® without bleach) with a dampened
paper towel. Rinse and reapply creme.
Failure to remove metal marks before the next
heating makes removal very difficult.
•
The minerals in some water can be transferred onto
the surface and cause stains. Use undiluted white
vinegar, rinse and dry. Recondition with Cooktop
Cleaning Creme.
Remove boilovers and stains, before using the
cooktop again.
•
Apply Cleaning Creme before using to remove sandlike grains and grit such as salt and seasoning.
Can be reduced by using pans with bases that are
smooth, clean, and dry before use. Use Cooktop
Cleaning Creme daily on the cooktop.
Hard water spots
Hot cooking liquids dripped on surface
Surface scratches
Soften by laying a damp paper towel or sponge on top
of soil for about 30 minutes.
Use a plastic scrubber and Cooktop Cleaning Creme or
use the razor blade scraper. Rinse and dry.

Care and Cleaning - Oven
Preparing the Oven for Self Clean
Self Cleaning the Oven
Bosch ovens feature a self-cleaning function that eliminates
the manual labor involved with cleaning your oven. During
self-cleaning, the oven uses a very high temperature to burn
away food soil and grease.
• It is common to see smoke and/or an occasional flameup 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.
• In the Self-Clean Mode, the door latch is automatically
activated when the oven reaches 350° F. This
ensures that the door cannot be opened while the oven
interior is at high clean temperatures.The door
lock symbol will appear in the display at this point. The
door will not lock until the ovenreaches 450° F.
When the lock symbol appears in the display,
gently pull on the door to confirm that it is locked.
• 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.
• Four hours is the preset length of cleaning. The range
can also be set to clean for 3 or 5 hours.
• The mode automatically stops at the end of the clean
hours.
• When the oven heat returns to 350° F after cleaning, the
automatic door lock will release and the door can be
opened.
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.
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. 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 clean or rub the gasket on the oven.
The gasket is designed to hold in heat during the selfclean cycle. Rinse all areas thoroughly then dry.
5. Be sure oven light is turned off and the light bulbs and
lens covers are in place. Do not operate oven without
lightbulb and cover in place.
Commercial Oven Cleaners are not to be used on the
self-clean oven or any part because they will damage
the finish or part.

Cookware Selection Guide
Cookware Characteristics
Cookware Tips
The choice of pans directly affects the cooking speed and
uniformity. For best results select pans with the following
features:
• Use of pots and pans with rounded (either concave or convex)
warped or dented bottoms should be avoided. See drawings
below.
• Make sure the bottom of the pot or pan being used is clean
and dry.
• Use pots and pans with thick, smooth metal bottoms.
• Do not slide metal pots across the cooktop. Pans may leave
marks which need to be removed immediately. See Care
and Cleaning Section.
• Do not use glass pans as they may scratch the surface.
Flat Bases - When a pan is hot, the base (pan bottom) should
rest evenly on the surface without wobbling (rocking). Flat,
medium-to-heavy-weight pans are best.
To Test the Flatness of Your Pans
Turn the pan upside down on the countertop and place a ruler
flat against the bottom of the pan. The bottom of the pan and
the straight edge of the ruler should be flush against each
other.
Another simple test to determine even heat distribution across
the cookware bottom is to place 1” of water in the pan. Bring
the water to a boil and observe the location of the bubbles as
the water starts to boil. Good, flat cookware will have an even
distribution of bubbles over the bottom surface area.
Matching Diameters – The base of the pan should cover
or match the diameter of the element being used. Pans may
overhang the element area by 1" all around.
Specialty Pans
Specialty pans such as griddles, roasters, pressure cookers,
woks, water bath canners and pressure canners must have
the same features as described above. Use only a flatbottomed wok. Never place a support ring, such as a wok
ring or trivet, on the cooking surface.
Tight Fitting Lids – A lid shortens cooking time and water
boils faster by holding the heat inside the pan.
Specialty pans, such as griddles, roasters, pressure cookers,
woks, water bath canners and pressure canners must have
the same features as described above. (Use only a flatbottom wok.) Never place a support ring, such as a wok ring
or trivet, on the cooking surface.

Self Help - Oven
PROBLEM SOLVING STEPS
OVEN PROBLEM
The oven mode or temperature selected or the numbers
selected do not appear in the display
The knob was turned too rapidly. Turn knob slower until
correct wording or temperature appears. Review manual
instructions when setting clock, timer, or Self-Clean.
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 Oven Temperature Offset). Refer to cooking charts
for recommended rack position. Always reduce recipe
temperature by 25°F when baking with Convection Bake
mode.
Oven temperature is too hot or too cold
The oven thermostat needs adjustment. See Oven
Temperature Offset.
Oven light is not working properly
Replace or reinsert the light bulb if loose or defective.
Touching the bulb with fingers may cause the bulb to
burn out.
Oven light stays on
Check for obstruction in oven door. Check to see if hinge
is bent.
Cannot remove lens cover on light
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.
Oven will not Self-Clean properly
Allow the oven to cool before running Self-Clean. Always
wipe out loose soils or heavy spillovers before running
Self-Clean. If oven is badly soiled, set oven for a fivehour Self-Clean. See Preparing the Oven to Self-Clean.
Clock and timer are not working properly
Make sure there is proper electrical power to the oven.
See the Clock and Timer sections.
Porcelain chips
When oven racks are removed and replaced, always tilt
racks upward and do not force them to avoid chipping the
porcelain.
“F” and a number appears in display and control beeps
This is a fault code. If a “F” code flashes, press Off to clear
the display and stop beeping. Reset oven if necessary. If
fault code remains and beep continues, record fault code,
cancel oven and call authorized servicer.
With a new range there is strong odor when oven is
turned on
This is normal with a new range and will disappear after
a few uses. Operating the self-clean cycle will also “burnoff” the smell more quickly.
