THE COOLING FAN FOR THE CONTROLS
Your appliance has a cooling fan fitted behind
the controls to prevent them from overheating.
The cooling fan will come on immediately when
grilling or using thermal grill in the top
compartment. The cooling fan may come on
after a short time when the top or main oven
are in use.
The cooling fan may cycle on and off when the
appliance is in use. This is quite normal.
NOTE
The action of the cooling fan will depend on
how long the ovens have been in use and what
temperature. The cooling fan may not operate
at low temperatures or where the oven(s) have
been used for a short period of time.
The cooling fan may run on after the ovens or
grill are switched off for a period of time to cool
the appliance down. It may continue to switch
on and off until the appliance is cool.
Always allow the cooling fan to cool
the
appliance
down
before
switching off at the wall prior to
carrying out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
NOTE
The action of the cooling fan will depend on
how long the ovens or grill have been used and
at what temperature. It may not switch in at all
at lower temperature settings nor run on where
the grill or oven has only been used for a short
time.
FAN SELECTOR INDICATOR NEON
The Fan Selector neon operates when the Fan
Selector button is pushed out.
The Selector neon will illuminate with all Top
oven functions, except the conventional oven.
The oven control surrounds will illuminate and
cycle on and off during use to show that the
temperature is being maintained.
POP IN POP OUT CONTROLS
These control knobs can remain flush with the
control panel when not in use, or pushed and
released to stand out from the panel for easy
operation.
FAN SELECTOR BUTTON
The Top oven enables you to cook with the
oven fan in operation or by conventional
means. Push out the Fan Selector button for
fan assisted cooking. Push the button in for
conventional oven cooking. Refer to the
appropriate oven section for full instructions.

BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE
WHEN FIRST SWITCHING ON
When First Switching on
The oven has a 24 hour clock. When the oven
is first switched on at the wall the electronic
display will automatically show 12.00, the 'Time'
(
) neon will also flash.
To set the time of day and use the timer refer to
instructions on page 11.
RATING PLATE
This is situated on the lower front frame of the
oven and can be seen upon opening the top
cavity door. Alternatively the rating plate may
also be found on the back or top of some
models (where applicable).
The appliance must be protected by a suitably
rated fuse or circuit breaker. The rating of the
appliance is given on the rating plate.
Do not remove the rating plate from the
appliance as this may invalidate the
guarantee.
PREPARING TO USE YOUR
APPLIANCE
Wipe over the base of the ovens with a soft
cloth and hot soapy water and wash the grill
and oven furniture before use.
We suggest that you run the oven elements for
10 - 15 minutes at 220°C to burn off any
residue from their surfaces.
The procedure should be repeated with the grill
for approximately 5 - 10 minutes.
During this period an odour may be emitted, it
is therefore advisable to open a window for
ventilation.
CONDENSATION AND STEAM
When food is heated it produces steam in the
same way as a boiling kettle does. The ovens
are vented to allow some of this steam to
escape. However, always stand back from the
appliance when opening the oven doors to
allow any build up of steam or heat to release.
If the steam comes into contact with a cool
surface on the outside of the appliance, e.g. a
trim, it will condense and produce water
droplets. This is quite normal and is not caused
by a fault on the appliance.
To prevent discolouration occurring, regularly
wipe away condensation and any soilage from
the appliance surfaces.
8
COOKWARE
Baking trays, dishes etc., should not be placed
directly against the grid covering the fan at the
back of the oven.
Do not use baking trays larger than 30cm x
35cm (12" x 14") as they will restrict the
circulation of heat and may affect performance.
Advice on the effect of different materials and
finishes of bakeware is given in 'Hints and Tips'
in the appropriate oven section.

Always ensure commercially
prepared food is well within its use by date
and that home prepared food is fresh and of
good quality.
When cooking is complete, do not leave
food to stand in the oven, but remove and
cool it quickly if the food is not to be
consumed immediately.
Always ensure food in the oven has been
covered before cooking if it is not possible to
remove food immediately after cooking.
14
THE DUAL GRILL
WARNING
Accessible
parts
become hot when the grill is in use.
Keep children away.
USES OF THE GRILL
The grill is situated in the Top oven
compartment.
The grill is a dual circuit grill which means that
the full area of the grill or the centre section
only can be used. Use the full grill for cooking
larger quantities of food. Use the centre section
for economy purposes when cooking smaller
quantities.
HOW TO USE THE DUAL GRILL
1. Open the Grill / Top Oven door.
2. Push out and turn the grill / top oven control
clockwise
past
the
maximum
oven
temperature to the settings that control the
grill.
3. The first three settings control the full area at
¼( ), ½ ( ) and full power (
). Set to
full power at first then turn down as
necessary. The fourth setting is for the centre
section of the grill only (
). This section
operates at full power.
The grill door must be left open
when grilling.
The grill pan must not be located in
the shelf runners.
THINGS TO NOTE
The cooling fan for the controls will operate
as soon as the grill control is turned. For
more information on the operation of the
cooling fan turn to page 7.
The outer section of the grill element may
appear to glow brighter than the inner
section. This is quite normal.
The control knob surround will illuminate.
We recommend using the grill pan on the
shelf in positions 3 or 5.
5
4
3
2
1
If you use the grill pan in position 3
the shelf must be withdrawn before
the pan can be located or removed.
Ensure the grill pan is properly
located.
15
THE GRILL PAN AND HANDLE
The grill pan has a removable handle.
To insert the handle, press the button on the
handle with the thumb and pivot the handle
slightly upwards inserting the lip into widest part
of the bracket. Move the handle towards the
left, lower into position and release the button.
Ensure the handle is positively
located.
To remove the handle, press the button on the
handle with the thumb and pivot the handle
slightly upwards and towards the right to
remove from the bracket.
Protect your hands when removing
the grill pan handle.
Always remove the grill pan handle
during grilling.
To correctly locate the grill pan on the shelf,
ensure that the cut out on the underside of the
handle bracket locates over the front bar of the
shelf.
The Grill Pan must not be located in
the shelf runners.
To check the progress of the food being grilled,
the grill pan should be withdrawn on the shelf to
attend to food during cooking.
HINTS AND TIPS
Most foods should be placed on the grilling
grid in the grill pan. This allows maximum
circulation of air by raising the food out of fats
and juices.
Ensure that you support the grill
pan when it is withdrawn.
Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to
allow for different thicknesses of food.
Position the food close to the element for
faster cooking and further away for more
gentle cooking.
16
The grill pan grid is reversible. This is useful if
you want to cook foods of varying thickness.
As a general rule, bread for toasting should
be placed on the grid in the ' high ' position in
the grill pan. Foods such as chicken pieces
or chops may be grilled using the grilling grid
in the low position.
Food should be thoroughly dried before
grilling to minimise splashing. Brush lean
meats and fish lightly with a little oil or melted
butter to keep them moist during cooking.
Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed underneath the
grid when grilling meats.
The food should be turned over during
cooking as required.
The grill door must be left open when grilling.
For convenience the grill door can be left
ajar.
Preheat the grill on full setting for a few
minutes before sealing steaks or toasting.
Adjust the heat setting and the shelf position
as necessary during cooking.

THE FAN ASSISTED TOP OVEN
USES OF THE FAN ASSISTED OVEN
The Top oven is the smaller of the two ovens. It
is convenient for mid-week meals where smaller
quantities or convenience foods are being
cooked. It is important to refer to the Top oven
cooking chart as a guide to shelf positions and
temperatures as these may differ from previous
appliance's you may have used.
HOW TO USE THE FAN
ASSISTED OVEN
1. Push out and turn the Grill / Top oven
temperature control clockwise to the required
setting.
2. Push out the Fan Selector button.
THINGS TO NOTE
The Fan Selector neon will glow throughout
cooking.
The control knob surround will illuminate.
The top oven indicator neon will illuminate. It
will turn on and off during cooking to show
that the temperature is being maintained.
The cooling fan for the controls will operate
after a time. See page 7 for more information
on the operation of the cooling fan.
The oven light will illuminate.
Do not place dishes, tins and trays
directly on the oven base as it
becomes very hot and damage will
occur.
TO FIT THE TOP OVEN SHELVES
5
4

2
1
There are 5 shelf positions in the Top oven.
Shelf positions are counted from the bottom
upwards.
The shelves should be fitted with the straight
rods uppermost on the frame and the forms
towards the back of the oven.
If not fitted correctly the anti-tilt and safety stop
mechanism will be affected.
19
HINTS AND TIPS
Use the Top oven when you want to warm
plates. Use a setting of 80°C - 100°C on the
oven temperature control.
You can use both shelves when using the fan
assisted oven.
There should always be at least 2.5cm (1")
between the top of the food and the grill
element. This gives best cooking results and
allows room for rise in yeast mixtures,
Yorkshire puddings etc. When cooking cakes,
pastry, scones bread etc., place the tins or
baking trays centrally on the shelf.
Ensure that food is placed centrally on the
shelf and there is sufficient room around the
baking tray or dish to allow for maximum
circulation.
Where a degree of evenness in baking is
required, it may be necessary to interchange
food during cooking.
Where a larger quantity of food is to be
cooked we recommend you use the main
oven.
Place dishes on a suitably sized baking tray
on the shelf to prevent spillage onto the oven
base and to help reduce cleaning.
The material and finish of the baking tray and
dishes will affect the degree of base browning
of the food. Enamelware, dark, heavy or
non-stick utensils increase base browning.
Shiny aluminium or polished steel trays
reflect the heat away and give less base
browning.
For economy leave the door open for the
shortest possible time, particularly when
placing food into a pre-heated oven.
Do not use the grill pan or meat tin as a
baking tray as this will increase base
browning of the food.
Because of the smaller cooking space and
lower temperatures, shorter cooking times
are sometimes required. Be guided by the
recommendations in the cooking chart.

USES OF THE CONVENTIONAL
OVEN
This form of cooking gives you the opportunity
to cook without the fan in operation. It is
particularly suitable for some cook chilled
convenience foods and dishes which require
extra base browning such as pizzas, quiches
and flans. Gratin's, lasagne and hotpots which
require extra top browning also cook well in the
conventional oven. For best results cook on
one level.
HOW TO USE THE CONVENTIONAL
OVEN
1. Push in the Fan Selector button.
2. Push out and turn the Grill / Top oven
temperature control clockwise to the required
setting.
THINGS TO NOTE
The control knob surround will illuminate.
The top oven indicator neon will illuminate. It
will turn on and off during cooking to show
that the temperature is being maintained.
The cooling fan for the controls will operate
after a short time. It may run on after the
controls are switched off until the appliance
has cooled. See page 7 for more details on
the operation of the cooling fan.
The oven light will illuminate.
Do not place dishes, tins or baking
trays directly on the oven base as it
becomes very hot and damage will
occur.
TO FIT THE TOP OVEN SHELF
There are 5 shelf positions in the Top oven.
Shelf positions are counted from the bottom
upwards.

The shelf should be fitted with the straight rods
uppermost on the frame and the forms towards
the back of the oven.
If not fitted correctly the anti-tilt and safety stop
mechanism will be affected.

HINTS AND TIPS
5
4
3
2
1
The middle shelf allows for the best heat
distribution. To increase base browning
simply lower the shelf position. To increase
top browning, raise the shelf position.
The material and finish of the baking trays
and dishes used will affect base browning.
Enamelware, dark heavy or non-stick utensils
increase base browning, while oven
glassware, shiny aluminium or polished steel
trays reflect the heat away and give less base
browning.
Always place dishes centrally on the shelf to
ensure even browning.
Stand dishes on suitably sized baking trays to
prevent spillage onto the base of the oven
and make cleaning easier.
Single level cooking gives best results. If you
require more than one level of cooking use
the fan assisted function or main fan oven.
Because of the smaller cooking space and
lower temperature, shorter cooking times are
sometimes required. Be guided by the
recommendations in the cooking chart.
For economy leave the oven door open for
the shortest possible time particularly when
placing food in a preheated oven.
Where a larger quantity of food is to be
cooked we recommend you use the fan
assisted or main fan oven.

THERMAL GRILLING IN THE TOP OVEN
USES OF THERMAL GRILLING
Thermal grilling in the Top oven offers an
alternative method of cooking food items
normally associated with conventional grilling.
The grill element and the oven fan operate
together, circulating hot air around the food.
The need to check and turn food is reduced.
Thermal grilling helps to minimise cooking
smells in the kitchen and allows you to grill with
the oven door closed. With the exception of
toast and rare steaks you can thermal grill all
the foods you would normally cook under a
conventional grill.
Dishes prepared in advance such as
shepherd's pie, lasagne and au gratin's can be
heated through and browned on the top using
the thermal grilling function.
COOKING TIMES
Cooking is more gentle, therefore food
generally takes a little longer to cook when
thermal grilling compared with conventional
grilling. One of the advantages is that larger
quantities can be cooked at the same time.
A general guide to cooking times is given on
page 26 but these times may vary slightly
depending on the thickness and quantity of
food being cooked.
HOW TO THERMAL GRILL
Always thermal grill with the oven
door closed and with the grill pan
handle removed.
1. Press out the Fan Selector button.
2. Push out and turn the Top oven / Dual Grill
control past the maximum oven setting to the
required grill setting. The first three settings
control the full area at ¼( ), ½ ( ) and full
power (
). Set to full power at first then
turn down as necessary. The fourth setting is
for the centre section of the grill only (
).
This section operates at full power.
3. Locate the grill pan on shelf 3 or 5.
4. Remove the handle from the grill pan and
close the oven door.
If you use the grill pan in position 3,
the shelf must be withdrawn before
the pan can be located or removed.
Ensure the grill pan is properly
located.
24
THINGS TO NOTE
Shelf position 3 is suitable for most foods.
Half setting (
) is suitable for most thicker
foods such as chicken quarters and pork
chops. Full setting (
) is suitable for
foods such as bacon.
The control knob surround will illuminate.
The top oven indicator neon will illuminate. It
will turn on and off during cooking to show
that the temperature is being maintained.
The Selector indicator

neon
will

The oven fan will operate continually during
thermal grilling.
The cooling fan for the controls will come on
when the grill control is turned. It may run on
after the controls are switched off until the
appliance has cooled. See page 7 for more
details on the operation of the cooling fan.
HINTS AND TIPS
Prepare foods in the same way as for
conventional grilling. Brush lean meats and
fish lightly with a little oil or butter to keep
them moist during cooking.
Most food should be placed on the grill pan
grid in the 'high' position in the grill pan to
allow maximum circulation of air around the
food.
Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed below the grid
when grilling meats, or in a separate dish on
a lower shelf.
25
Turn food over during cooking as necessary.
Ensure that ready prepared or cooked chilled
dishes e.g. shepherds pie, moussaka,
lasagne, etc., are piping hot throughout
before serving.
Be prepared to make suitable adjustments to
the grill setting during cooking to suit
individual requirements. It may be necessary
to turn down as required. If thermal grilling on
more than one level, it may be necessary to
interchange the food on the shelves during
cooking.

TO DEFROST IN THE TOP OVEN
USES OF DEFROST
This function enables you to defrost most foods
without heat faster than some conventional
methods as the oven fan circulates air around
the food. It is particularly suitable for defrosting
delicate frozen foods which are to be served
cold e.g. cream filled gateaux, cakes covered
with icings or frostings, cheesecakes, biscuits,
scones etc.
HOW TO DEFROST
1. Press out the Fan Selector button.
2. The Dual grill / Top oven control should be in
the Off '0' position.
THINGS TO NOTE
The oven fan will operate.
The fan selector indicator neon will illuminate.
The top oven indicator neon may illuminate. It
may turn on and off during defrosting.
HINTS AND TIPS
Place the frozen food in a single layer where
possible and turn it over half way through the
defrosting process.
The actual speed of defrosting is influenced
by room temperature. On warm days
defrosting will be faster than on cooler days.
It is preferable to thaw fish, meat and poultry
slowly in the fridge. However, this process
can be accelerated by using the defrost
function. Small or thin fish fillets, frozen
peeled prawns, cubed or minced meat, liver,
thin chops, steaks etc., can be thawed in 1 2 hours.
A 1kg/2¼lb oven ready chicken will be
thawed in approximately 5 hours. Remove
the giblets as soon as possible during the
thawing process.
27
Joints of meat up to 2kg/4½lb in weight can
be thawed using the defrost function.
All joints of meat and poultry must be thawed
thoroughly before cooking.
DO NOT leave food at room temperature
once it is defrosted. Cook raw food
immediately or store cooked food in the
fridge, once it has cooled.
Care must always be taken when handling
foods in the home. Always follow the basic
rules of food hygiene to prevent bacterial
growth and cross contamination when
defrosting, preparing, cooking cooling and
freezing foods. This is particularly important if
the main oven is in use or is warm, as the
temperature in the Top oven will be higher
than room temperature.
28
THE MAIN FAN OVEN
USES OF THE FAN OVEN
The fan oven is particularly suitable for cooking
larger quantities of food.
The advantages of fan oven cooking are:
PREHEATING
The fan oven quickly reaches its temperature
so it not usually necessary to preheat the oven.
Without preheating however you may need to
add an extra 5 - 10 minutes on the
recommended cooking times. For recipes
needing high temperatures e.g. bread, pastries,
scones, soufflés etc., best results are achieved
if the oven is preheated first. For best results
when cooking frozen or cooked chilled ready
meals always preheat the oven first.
COOKING TEMPERATURES
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower
temperatures than conventional cooking. Follow
the temperatures recommended in the chart on
page 33 until you are familiar with the lower
temperatures associated with Fan oven
cooking. As a guide reduce temperatures by
20°C - 25°C for your own recipes.
BATCH BAKING
The fan oven cooks evenly on all shelf levels,
especially useful when batch baking.
HOW TO USE THE FAN OVEN
1. Push out and turn the Selector to Fan oven.
2. Push out and turn the main oven temperature
control to the required setting.
THINGS TO NOTE
The oven light will come on when the
Selector is set.
The oven fan will operate continually during
cooking.
The cooling fan for the controls may operate
after a time. See page 7 for further details on
the operation of the cooling fan.
The control surrounds will illuminate. The
oven indicator neon will turn on and off during
cooking to show that the temperature is being
maintained.
If an automatic programme has been set, the
oven fan and oven light do not come on until
the cook time begins.
29
TO FIT THE MAIN OVEN SHELVES
The shelves should be fitted with the straight
rods uppermost on the frame and the forms
towards the back of the oven. If not fitted
correctly the anti-tilt and safety stop mechanism
will be affected.
HINTS AND TIPS
Arrange the shelves in the required positions
before switching the oven on. Shelves are
numbered from the bottom upwards.
14
1
When cooking more than one dish in the fan
oven, place dishes centrally on different
shelves rather than cluster several dishes on
one shelf, this will allow the heat to circulate
freely for the best cooking results.
It is recommended that when baking larger
quantities, the shelf positions should be
evenly spaced to suit the load being cooked.
A slight increase in cooking time may be
necessary.
The use of excessively high temperatures
can cause uneven browning. It may be
necessary to reduce temperatures slightly.
Refer to the recommendations given in the
oven cooking chart, on page 33.
The material and finish of the baking trays
and dishes used will affect base browning.
Enamelware, dark heavy or non-stick utensils
increase base browning, while oven
glassware, shiny aluminium or polished steel
trays reflect the heat away and give less base
browning.
30
THE CONVENTIONAL OVEN
USES OF THE CONVENTIONAL
OVEN
This form of cooking gives you the opportunity
to cook without the fan in operation. It is
particularly suitable for dishes which require
extra base browning such as pies, quiches and
flans. Gratin's, lasagne and hotpots which
require extra top browning also cook well in the
conventional oven. For best results cook on
one level.
HOW TO USE THE CONVENTIONAL
OVEN
1. Push out and turn the Selector to Conventional
Oven.
2. Push out and turn the main oven temperature
control to the required setting.
THINGS TO NOTE
The control surrounds will illuminate.
The oven indicator neon will turn on and off
during cooking to show that the temperature
is being maintained.
The internal oven light operates when the
Selector is set. If an automatic cooking
programme is set, the oven light will come on
when the cook time begins.
The cooling fan for the controls may operate
after a time. It may run on after the controls
are switched off until the appliance has
cooled. See page 7 for more details on the
operation of the cooling fan.
Do not place dishes, tins or baking
trays directly on the oven base as
damage will occur.
31
HINTS AND TIPS
The middle shelf allows for the best heat
distribution. To increase base browning
simply lower the shelf position. To increase
top browning, raise the shelf position.
The material and finish of the baking trays
and dishes used will affect base browning.
Enamelware, dark heavy or non-stick utensils
increase base browning, while oven
glassware, shiny aluminium or polished steel
trays reflect the heat away and give less base
browning.
Always place dishes centrally on the shelf to
ensure even browning.
Stand dishes on suitably sized baking trays to
prevent spillage onto the base of the oven
and make cleaning easier.
Single level cooking gives best results. If you
want to cook on more than one level use the
fan or zoned oven functions.

34
DEFROSTING IN THE MAIN OVEN
USES OF DEFROST FEATURE
This main oven function enables you to defrost
most foods without heat faster than some
conventional methods as the oven fan
circulates air around the food. It is particularly
suitable for delicate frozen foods which are to
be served cold e.g. cream filled gateaux, cakes
covered with icings or frostings, cheesecakes,
biscuits, scones etc.
HOW TO DEFROST
1. Push out and turn the Selector to Defrost

turn on and off during defrosting.
HINTS AND TIPS
Place the frozen food in a single layer where
possible and turn it over half way through the
defrosting process.
The actual speed of defrosting is influenced
by room temperature. On warm days
defrosting will be faster than on cooler days.
It is preferable to thaw fish, meat and poultry
slowly in the fridge. However, this process
can be accelerated by using the defrost
function. Small or thin fish fillets, frozen
peeled prawns, cubed or minced meat, liver,
thin chops, steaks etc., can be thawed in 1 2 hours.
35
A 1kg/2¼lb oven ready chicken will be
thawed in approximately 5 hours. Remove
the giblets as soon as possible during the
thawing process.
Joints of meat up to 2kg/4½lb in weight can
be thawed using the defrost function.
All joints of meat and poultry must be thawed
thoroughly before cooking.
Always cook thoroughly immediately after
thawing.
DO NOT leave food at room temperature
once it is defrosted. Cook raw food
immediately or store cooked food in the
fridge, once it has cooled.
Care must always be taken when handling
foods in the home. Always follow the basic
rules of food hygiene to prevent bacterial
growth and cross contamination when
defrosting, preparing, cooking cooling and
freezing foods.
36
SPEEDCOOK FUNCTION
USES OF SPEEDCOOK
Speedcook is ideal for quick preheating of the
oven before selecting an alternative cooking
function. It can also be used for cooking chilled
and frozen convenience foods without the need

gives best results.
Frozen and cook chilled foods can be cooked
using Speedcook without the need for
preheating.
Use Speedcook for all types of frozen / cook
chilled convenience foods to given even
browning and crispness where crispness is
required.
The material and finish of the baking trays
and dishes used will affect base browning.
Enamelware, dark heavy or non-stick utensils
increase base browning, while oven
glassware, shiny aluminium or polished steel

39
THINGS TO NOTE
The control surrounds will illuminate.
The oven indicator neon will illuminate. It may
turn on and off during cooking to ensure the
temperature is maintained.
The oven fan will operate continually during
thermal grilling.
The oven light will come on when the selector
is set.
The cooling fan for the controls may operate
after a time. It may run on after the controls
are switched off until the appliance has
cooled. See page 7 for more details on the
operation of the cooling fan.
HINTS AND TIPS
Prepare foods in the same way as for
conventional grilling. Brush lean meats and
fish lightly with a little oil or butter to keep
them moist during cooking.
Most food should be placed on the grill pan
grid in the 'high' position in the grill pan to
allow maximum circulation of air around the
food.
Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed below the grid
when grilling meats, or in a separate dish on
a lower shelf.
40
Foods will cook more quickly the closer they
are to the grill element and the higher the
temperatures selected. Be prepared to adjust
temperatures and shelf positions during
cooking if necessary.
Turn food over during cooking as necessary.
Ensure that ready prepared or cooked chilled
dishes e.g. shepherds pie, moussaka,
lasagne, etc., are piping hot throughout
before serving.
A temperature range of 140°-220°C and shelf
positions 9 and 10 are suitable for most
foods. Be prepared to make suitable
adjustments during cooking to suit individual
requirements. If thermal grilling on more than
one level, it may be necessary to interchange
the food on the shelves during cooking.

cloth. DO NOT use abrasives as they may
damage the glass or seal.
CLEANING THE GRILL/ OVEN
COMPARTMENTS
The oven tops, sides and back panels are
coated with a Stayclean finish.
The Stayclean areas in the ovens should not be
cleaned manually. See Care of Stayclean
Surfaces on page 45.
The oven bases can be cleaned using normal
oven cleaners or aerosol oven cleaners with
care.
Ensure
that
the
manufacturers
instructions are followed and that all parts are
well rinsed afterwards.
Do not use any cleaning agents or scrapers on
the oven tops, sides, back panels and door
seals.
Damage will occur if soap impregnated steel
wool pads, aerosol cleaners or any abrasive
cleaners are used.
44
CARE OF STAYCLEAN SURFACES
The roofs and sides of both ovens and the main
oven back panel are coated with a Stayclean
finish. They should not be cleaned manually.
Aerosol cleaners must not be used on
Stayclean surfaces and must not come into
contact with elements or the door seal, as
this may cause damage.
During normal use the Stayclean coating will
become splashed with fats and food residues.
By running the oven without food, the Stayclean
surfaces burn off any soilage. Regular use of
the oven cleaning cycle will help to keep the
panels in good condition. See below.
THE OVEN CLEANING CYCLE TOP OVEN
1. Remove oven shelves and bakeware from
oven.
2. Push out the Fan Selector button.
3. Push out and turn the top oven temperature
control to 220°C and allow the oven to run for
an hour or so.
THE OVEN CLEANING CYCLE MAIN OVEN
1. Remove oven shelves and bakeware from
oven.
2. Push out and turn the Selector to Fan
function (
)
3. Push out and turn the main oven temperature
control to 220°C and allow the oven to run for
an hour or so.
THINGS TO NOTE
The Fan Selector neon for the top oven will
illuminate.
The control knob surround will illuminate. The
oven indicator neon will turn on and off during
use.
The Cooling Fan for the controls will operate
after a short time. It may run on after the
controls are switched off until the appliance
has cooled. See page 7 for more details on
the operation of the cooling fan.
45
HINTS AND TIPS
Slight discolouration and polishing of the
Stayclean surfaces may occur in time, but
this will not affect their self cleaning
properties.
A good time to use the oven cleaning cycle is
after the weekly roast.
If you do a lot of roasting and very little
baking you should follow the cleaning cycle
every week. If you roast very little you will
only need to follow the cleaning cycle every 2
- 3 weeks.
Follow the recommendations below to keep
soilage to a minimum.
COOKING TO REDUCE SOILAGE
Cook at the recommended temperatures.
Higher temperatures during roasting will
increase soilage. Try cooking at lower
temperatures for an increased length of time,
you will save energy and often the joint is
more tender.
Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when
roasting meat, potatoes only require brushing
with fat before cooking. Extra fat in the oven
during roasting will increase splashing and
soilage.
It is not necessary to add water to a meat tin
when roasting. The water and the fat juices
from the joint create excessive splattering
during cooking, even at normal temperatures,
as well as causing condensation.
Covering joints during cooking will also
prevent splashing onto the interior surfaces.
Removing the covering for the last 20-30
minutes will allow extra browning if required.
Some large joints and turkeys especially
benefit by this method of cooking, allowing
the joint to cook through before the outside is
overbrowned.
46
CLEANING THE TOP OVEN ROOF
The grill element is hinged to make cleaning the
oven roof easier.
Switch off the appliance from the
electricity supply before cleaning
and ensure the oven is cold.
1. Remove the wirework side runners. See
below.
2. Undo the two screws which hold the grill
element in place.
3. Gently pull the element downwards to allow
access to the oven roof. Do not force the
element downwards.
4. Clean the top of the oven with Cif cream
cleaner and a sponge scourer. If heavily
soiled, aerosol oven cleaners may be used
following the instructions given above for
cleaning the grill / top oven compartment.
5. Gently push the grill element back into
place.
6. Fit the screws to hold the element in place
and tighten firmly.
7. Replace the wirework side runners.
Ensure the screws are firmly in place
after clening.
TO REMOVE THE WIREWORK
RUNNERS
The wirework runners in both ovens can be
removed for cleaning.
1. Remove all shelves and furniture from the
oven.
2. Hold the wirework at the bottom, unclip from
the cavity side and gently pull towards the
centre of the oven.
3. Support the side panel at the bottom.
4. Unhook the runner and side panel at the top
and remove them from the cavity.
5. To replace, ensure the side panel is
assembled onto the wirework runner before
hooking it back into the oven.
