It may be necessary from time to time to change the specification
outlined in this booklet without notice. Any change which is made
will not affect your statutory rights.
Your new appliance is guaranteed* and will give lasting service. This
guarantee is only applicable if the appliance has been installed in
accordance with the installation instructions detailed in this booklet.
To help make best use of your cooking equipment, please read this
booklet carefully.
The cooker is designed specifically for domestic use and responsibility
will not be accepted for use in any other installation.
When the cooker is first used an odour may be
emitted, this will cease after a period of use.
When first using the cooker ensure that the room is well ventilated
(e.g. open a window or use an extractor fan) and that persons who
may be sensitive to the odour avoid any fumes. It is suggested that
any pets be removed from the room until the smell has ceased. This
odour is due to temporary finish on oven liners and elements and also
any moisture absorbed by the insulation.
The control unit should be easily accessible in the
event of an emergency, but must be within 2
metres of and not directly above an appliance.
This appliance conforms to EN 55014 regarding
suppression of radio and television interference.
Access to the mains terminals is gained by
removing the rear access cover.
The mains cable must pass through the cable
clamp adjacent to the terminal block. Sufficient

Safety requirements for deep fat frying :
1. Use a deep pan, large enough to completely cover the appropriate
heating area.
2. Never fill the pan more than one-third full of oil.
3. Never leave oil or fat unattended during the heating or cooking
period.
4. Never try to fry too much food at a time, especially frozen food. This
only lowers the temperature of the oil or fat too much, resulting in
greasy food.
5. Always dry food thoroughly before frying, and lower it slowly into the
hot oil or fat. Frozen foods, in particular, will cause frothing and
spitting, if added too quickly.
6. Never heat fat, or fry, with a lid on the pan.
7. Keep the outside of the pan clean and free from streaks of oil or fat.

Choosing Your Utensils
All copper pans are excellent conductors of heat, and are hard wearing and
strong, but need quite a lot of care. They can be very heavy and do not
usually have completely flat bases. The interiors are usually lined with a
different material such as tin.
A stainless steel pan with a sandwich base of aluminium and stainless steel
is an excellent conductor of heat and is suitable for use on ceramic and
halogen hobs, providing they are used in accordance with the saucepans
manufacturers’ recommendations.
Stainless steel pans with a sandwich base of aluminium and copper are
excellent conductors of heat. If using stainless steel saucepans with
aluminium and copper sandwich bases on ceramic and halogen hobs, the
use of these pans must be in accordance with the saucepan
manufacturers’ recommendations. Extra care should be taken to ensure
the base of the pan and the hob is cleaned, and the hob conditioned, after
each and every use, when using this type of saucepan.
If these recommendations are not followed, the result will be a build up of
small copper deposits on the surface of your hob which, if not cleaned
after each use, will result in permanent marking of your hob.
Always lift the pan from the hob, do not drag or slide across the hob
surface as damage may occur.

The cooking areas change colour when heated (become red) indicating
which heating element is switched on. The cooking area returns to its
original colour when the heating element is switched Off.
Warning: Even though the cooking area has returned to its original
colour it may still be hot.
The controls for the hotplates can be turned in either direction.
Turn the control to 6 for fast cooking. To reduce the heat to cook more
slowly or simmer, turn the control to a lower setting according to the
size of the saucepan and the amount of liquid.
Pans can be placed on the unheated areas of the panel when cooking is
finished and before serving food. It is inadvisable at any time to leave a
heating element switched on without a pan in position as this wastes
energy, and could make soil or rub-off from aluminium pans more
difficult to remove. To protect elements against over-heating, safety cutouts have been incorporated with each element. After several minutes
with the control at setting 6 the safety cut-out switches the element Off
and On continuously, thus preventing any adverse effects that may be
caused by an excessive build-up of heat in the cooking area.
WARNING: Extreme caution should be used when cleaning the hot
hob.
IMPORTANT
1. Always clean up any spillage immediately with a clean cloth or a
paper towel to avoid unnecessary damage to the hob. Extreme care
should be taken to avoid steam burns and hot surfaces when cleaning
spillage from the hob.
2. When cooking food which contains sugar (most food) or syrup, use a
utensil which is large enough to prevent boil over or spillage. Sugar
spillage will permanently damage the hob and therefore should
be cleaned off with care immediately. If sugar spillage has occurred,
remove it as long as it is still hot with a metal safety razor scraper
provided. This will avoid any damage. NEVER LET IT COOL BEFORE
REMOVING.
3. Always ensure that the base of the utensil is dry before placing on the
ceramic hob.
Care and Cleaning of the
ceramic hob
The ceramic hob
Turn off at the mains before cleaning. To reduce the amount of
cleaning always ensure that the hob and cooking utensils are clean
and dry before use. Regular use of cleaner conditioner is
recommended for proper care and protection of the hob surface.
Apply conditioner before using the hob for the first time. It contains a
mild cleaning agent, so that subsequent applications may clean off soil
and apply a protective film at the same time. For stubborn stains or
heavy soiling use any of the following materials, and finish off with
conditioner.
1. Non-scratch scouring cream.
2. Kitchen Cleanser.
3. Special Powder Cleanser.
Notes:
1. Powder Cleanser – Mineral deposits that are present in hard water,
and some foods, may cause ‘discolourations’ that appear in the form
of grey or brown stains. The stains sometimes appear to be in or
under the glass surface. If there are some persistent stains after
using any of the other recommended cleaning materials, powder
cleanser may be applied, following the manufacturers instructions.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or the powder cleanser on the painted
metal framework.
2. Cleaner Conditioner – Regular use of the conditioner will make the
surface easier to clean thus ensuring that years of heavy abrasive
cleaning do not progressively dull the surface.
Cleaning materials to avoid:1. Plastic or nylon pads.
2. Household abrasive powders and scourers, these may scratch the
surface.
3. Oven chemical cleaners, aerosols and oven pads. Caustic cleaners
such as these will etch the surface and attack the metal frame.
4. Bath and sink cleaners may mark the surface.
Important notes
1. If the hob is scratched through accident or misuse, soil that collects
will appear as fine brown lines; these are not fully removable but
can be made less obvious by the daily use of cleaner conditioner.
Cooking performance is in no way affected by scratches on the
surface.
2. Pans with aluminium bases should be lifted rather than dragged
across the hob surface. This will avoid metal rubbing off the pan
onto the glass. Such marks are easily removed by the powder
cleanser provided they are not subsequently baked on for long
periods at high temperatures.
In the unlikely event of the ceramic hob surface cracking, isolate the
cooker by switching it off at the main switch, and contact the nearest
service depot, see separate service leaflet. Do not continue to use the
cooker until it is repaired.
Cleaning the hob surround.
Clean with a cloth wrung out in soapy water. Stubborn stains can be
removed with a cream, paste or liquid cleaner.
Care and Cleaning of the Sealed
Plate hob
Turn off at the mains before cleaning.
The cleaning of sealed hotplates should be done when they are cold,
using a soap filled Brillo pad, following the grain of the hotplate. This will
ensure that any stubborn, burnt on spillage’s are removed. Wipe over
with a damp clean cloth, making sure that all the cleaner has been
removed. Finally, turn on hotplate to warm for a few minutes, then smear
with a little cooking oil to provide a protective coating, or a restorative
agent such as Collo-Electrol®, Four Hob etc. The bezels will mellow with
use to a burnished gold colour, a soap filled Brillo pad will help to keep
them bright, care should be taken not to damage the vitreous enamel
hob surface.
Cleaning the vitreous enamelled hob surround.
Clean with a cloth wrung out in soapy water. Stubborn stains can be
removed with a cream, paste or liquid cleaner, or by gently rubbing with
liberally soaped, very fine steel wool pads. Check that the cleaning agent
used is approved by the Vitreous Enamel Development Council.
We do not recommend the use of decorative covers over the hot
hotplates as these can hold condensation and cause corrosion.
Accidental operation with a cover in place can cause intense heat. Never
place saucepan lids on the hotplates, as this may cause corrosion.

Replace screw and washers and ensure that they are fully tightened up.
For a detachable handle remove screw and washers from grill pan and
discard.
Warning: Ensure when using grill pan handle in the detachable
manner it is centralised and secure.
SETTING THE GRILL Preheat the grill at setting 6 for approximately 5
minutes. The grill pan is placed on the grill runner
and should be correctly positioned under the grill
element. Leave the control at setting 6 for toast,
sealing and fast cooking of foods. For thicker
foods requiring longer cooking, turn the switch to
a lower setting after the initial sealing on both
sides at setting 6. The thicker the food the lower
the control should be set.
Note:
ALWAYS have the door open when grilling.
If closed a thermal device will operate.
Allow cooker to cool and try again
Note:
Remember to switch off the control at the end of
cooking.
Guide to grilling successfully:

Oven Control
Note:
Note:
With the oven door closed, heating of the
oven is achieved by turning the control
clockwise to the required ‘oven temperature’
scale on the control panel, as recommended
in the temperature charts. The pilot light will
immediately come on and go off during
cooking as the thermostat maintains the
correct temperature.
TURN OFF THE MAIN SWITCH BEFORE CLEANING. BEFORE SWITCHING ON
AGAIN, ENSURE THAT ALL CONTROLS ARE IN THE OFF POSITION.
NEVER USE BIOLOGICAL WASHING POWDER, HARSH ABRASIVES,
SCOURING PADS, AEROSOL CLEANERS OR OVEN CHEMICAL CLEANERS
OF ANY KIND, unless specified below.

soapy water, followed by rinsing in clean water.
Remember to switch off the oven control
after cooking is finished.
Oven Cookery Notes
The oven temperature charts’ are a guide only, giving approximate
cooking temperatures and times. To suit personal taste and
requirements, it may be necessary to increase or decrease
temperatures by 10˚C.
To prepare meat for roasting in your electric oven.
Wipe the joint, dry well with a clean cloth, kitchen tissue, etc., and weigh
it. Meat which has been stored in a refrigerator, should be allowed to
come to room temperature for approximately 30 minutes before
cooking. Always completely thaw frozen meat before cooking. Beef,
lamb and mutton may be lightly floured, but pork should have the rind
scored, brushed over lightly with olive oil, and sprinkled with salt – for
crisp crackling.
Place joint in meat pan (small joints weighing less than 1.5kg (3lbs)
should be roasted in a smaller pan/meat tin, or they may be ‘pot
roasted’ – a small joint in a large meat pan causes unnecessary oven
splashing). Additional fat should not be used, except for veal, very lean
meat, poultry, which can either be ‘larded’ with bacon fat or brushed
over very sparingly with melted fat/cooking oil. When potatoes are
roasted round the joint, they only require to be coated in melted
fat/cooking oil. It is not necessary to baste, when roasting in an electric
oven, and liquid/stock should not be added to the meat pan.
How
Credaclean
Works
Grill
The surface of the ‘Credaclean’ oven liners are treated on
the mottled face with a special vitreous enamel which
absorbs cooking soils. At temperatures of 220˚C (425˚F)
or above, the special surface enables these soils to be
slowly destroyed. The higher the temperature the more
effective it is. If higher cooking temperatures are not used
regularly it may be necessary, to prevent heavy soiling, to
turn the oven control at maximum setting for a couple of
hours.
Remove the grill pan and the wire grid food support, it is best
to wash these items immediately after use to prevent stains
from being burnt on when used again. Wipe out the grill
compartment, use a fine steel wool soap pad to remove
stubborn stains from the rod shelf and the floor of the
compartment.
Control panel Wipe with a damp cloth and polish with a dry cloth.
Doors
Wipe over the grill door glass panel with a cloth wrung out in
hot soapy water, then after wiping with a cloth wrung out in
clear water, dry with a soft clean cloth. Ensure that glass door
panels are not subjected to any sharp mechanical blows.
Glass Inner Door Panel (where fitted) – open the door fully
and unscrew the two screws securing the glass panel, taking
care not to allow the glass to fall.The glass panel may now be
washed at the sink. Stubborn stains can be removed by using
a fine steel wool soap pad.
Take particular care not to damage the inner surface which is
coated with a heat reflective layer.After cleaning, rinse and dry
with a softcloth. For slight soiling the inner glass panel may be
cleaned, while still warm, without removing it from the door.
Warning: Oven must not be operated with inner door glass
removed.
Main Oven
Remove the rod shelves.
Use a fine steel wool soap pad to remove stubborn stains from
the rod shelves and the floor of the oven. Take care during
cleaning not to damage or distort the door seals, if necessary
remove the seal by carefully unhooking the corner clips.
Temperature and Time
The secret of succulent, tender meat, is not to roast quickly at too high a
temperature. Best results are obtained when roasting is carried out at low
temperatures. When a lower temperature is used, joint loses less weight, is
more tender (too high a temperature causes meat to be tough and dry),
and the splashing of fat onto oven interior is reduced. When a complete
meal is being cooked in the oven, cooking time may need to be increased,
and temperature may need to be raised for approximately the last 30
minutes of the cooking period (for instance when cooking Yorkshire
pudding to serve with roast beef ). Never use meat pans larger than 390 x
300mm (15”x12”) and baking trays no larger than 330x255mm (13”x10”),
these should be positioned centrally on the oven shelf. Food should not be
placed directly on the floor of the oven.To avoid unnecessary cleaning, rod
shelves which are not in use, should be removed from the oven.
The times and temperature suggested should be used as a guide but may
vary according to:–
1. Whether you prefer meat rare, medium or well done.
2. The size and shape of your joint.
a) A short thick joint requires a longer cooking period than a long
thin joint.
b) A small joint under 1.5kg (3lbs) takes longer per 450g (1lb) than a
large one, whereas a large joint over 3kg (6lbs) will cook in the
time given for ‘minutes’ per 450g (1lb) without the ‘minutes’ over
added.
c) Boned/rolled and stuffed joints take longer to cook through than
those with a bone. (The weight of stuffing should be added to the
oven ready weight meat/poultry to calculate roasting times.)
1. Plastic or nylon pads / scourers, these may scratch the
surface.
2. Household abrasive powders.
3. Oven chemical cleaners, aerosols and oven pads.
4. Caustic cleaners, these will etch the surface
and attack the metal frame.
5. Bath and sink cleaners may mark the surface.
