INTRODUCTION
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
RATING PLATE
To move the appliance, open the main oven door,
and lift the appliance by holding inside the top of the
oven compartment.
This is situated on the front frame of the appliance
and can be seen upon opening the 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.
INSTALLATION
This is a type X appliance, which means it is freestanding and can be fitted with cabinets on one or
both sides.
If your appliance has been damaged in transit,
contact your supplier immediately. DO NOT attempt
to install it.
Side walls which are above hob level should be
protected by heat resistant non-combustible material
and MUST NOT be nearer than 40mm to the hob
side.
Your appliance left the factory fully packaged to
protect it from damage. If it is delivered without
packaging and damage has occurred, the
manufacturer cannot accept responsibility. Contact
your supplier for advice.
A nominal air gap of 2mm at the sides of the
appliance is required to enable the appliance to be
moved into position.
It is recommended that
proprietary trims are fitted to protect the worktops of
either side of the appliance. These are available
from most DIY stores.
Once the packaging has been removed the appliance
should only be moved by hand. DO NOT use a sack
barrow or any other aid to lift the appliance as
damage may occur.
Connection to the electricity supply must be carried
out by a qualified electrician/competent person.
Air gap
The electrical connection should be made using a
double pole isolating switch (cooker socket) with at
least 3mm contact separation in all poles. The cable
must have conductors of sufficiently high crosssectional area to prevent overheating and
deterioration.
Always ensure an air gap is maintained at hotplate
level. Tiles or other forms of deep wall covering
should not obscure this gap.
The recommended cross-section area is six square
2
millimetres (6.00mm ).
The cable should be routed away from potentially hot
areas marked by an ‘X’ in the diagram below.
Overhanging surfaces or a cooker hood should be a
minimum of 685mm above the hob.
It is important to ensure that the appliance is level
after installation. Levelling feet are fitted to the
appliance to accommodate uneven floors.

GRILL AND OVEN FURNITURE
GENERAL NOTES ON USING YOUR
APPLIANCE
The following items of grill/oven furniture have been
supplied with the appliance:
We suggest that you run the oven elements for 10 –
o
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.
1 grill pan
ABOUT CONDENSATION AND STEAM
When food is heated it produces steam similar to a
boiling kettle. The oven is vented to allow some of
this steam to escape. However, always stand back
from the appliance when opening the oven door 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.
1 grill pan handle
To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away
condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
For your safety wall coverings at the rear of the
appliance should be securely fixed to the wall.
1 grill pan grid
CONTROL PANEL INDICATOR NEONS
These lights indicate whether the ovens are switched
on.
The neons also indicate when the set temperature
has been reached. They will turn on and off during
use to show that the temperature is being
maintained.
1 straight shelf
for grilling and
top oven cooking only
If the neons do not operate as the instructions
indicate the controls have been incorrectly set.
Return all controls to zero and re-set following the
instructions for the required setting.
THE COOLING FAN FOR THE
CONTROLS
The cooling fan will always come on when the grill
and the top oven are switched on. If they are only
used for a short period of time the fan will switch off
when the controls are turned off. If the grill or the top
oven are used for a longer period of time the fan will
run on depending on the temperature, and may turn
on and off until the appliance has cooled.
2 straight shelves
for main oven cooking
In the case of the main oven the cooling fan may not
switch on except when used for a longer period of
time. The cooling fan may run on, and turn on and
off after the control knobs have been switched off,
until the appliance has cooled. Do not switch the
appliance off at its power point until the fan has
cooled the appliance down.
Scuffing of the Stayclean panel/s by the oven
furniture pack may occur during transit. These marks
will disappear after the oven elements have been
burnt off for the first time.

THE CERAMIC HOB
CAUTION: DO NOT USE THE APPLIANCE IF THE CERAMIC GLASS IS DAMAGED. IF A
FAULT OR CRACK BECOMES VISIBLE DURING COOKING, DISCONNECT THE
APPLIANCE IMMEDIATELY FROM THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY AND CONTACT YOUR
LOCAL SERVICE FORCE CENTRE.
USING THE HOB
·
To operate the hotplates, turn the control knobs
in either direction to vary the heat setting.
·
The highest number represents the hottest
setting and the lowest number represents the
coolest setting. Choose a setting appropriate to
the quantity and type of food to be cooked.
Some switching ON and OFF when cooking at high
temperatures, e.g. deep fat frying is quite normal,
causes no damage to the hob and little delay in
cooking times.
Excessive switching may however be caused by the
use of an unsuitable saucepan or a saucepan which
is smaller than the heated area.
If excessive
switching occurs, discontinue use of the saucepan.
RECOMMENDED SAUCEPANS
HINTS AND TIPS
For speed and economy only good quality saucepans
with flat bases and close fitting lids are
recommended.
The saucepan base should be
approximately the same size as the cooking area, a
base diameter of up to 225mm (9”) may be used on a
180mm (7”) heated area.
Ensure that new saucepans are well scrubbed to
remove edges and take off any deposits left from
manufacture.
Pressure cookers, preserving pans, etc., should
comply with the recommendations given above.
Traditional round bottomed Woks must not be used
even with a stand. Woks with flat-bottomed bases
are available and do comply with the above
recommendations.
NOTE
Occasionally the heated areas may be seen to switch
ON and OFF when higher heat settings are being
used. This is due to a safety device which prevents
the glass from overheating.
14
·
Lift, rather than slide saucepans on and off the
heated areas. This will reduce the risk of
scratches and metal marks from saucepans with
aluminium bases. Metal marks can be easily
cleaned off providing they are not allowed to burn
on.
·
Follow any guidelines provided by the saucepan
manufacturer, particularly those relating to
recommended heat settings.
·
Avoid using thin, badly dented or distorted
saucepans as they can lead to sticking and
burning of food.
·
·
5. Double frying chips.
To prolong the life of the hotplates:·
DO NOT place foil and plastic vessels on the
hot surface of the ceramic hob and DO NOT
use the surface for storage purposes.
·
Never use utensils with a skirt, e.g. a bucket.
·
Never use an asbestos mat.
·
Never leave the hotplates ON when not
covered with a saucepan.
Double frying will ensure good chips. First fry the
chips for a few minutes at 170°C/340°F to seal
the outside. Remove the chips from the oil.
Increase the temperature of the oil to
190°C/375°F to finish cooking and brown the
chips.
Chips may be kept for several hours after the first
frying before finishing off with the second frying.
Ensure that the hob and saucepans are clean
and dry before the start of cooking to reduce
cleaning.
·
Follow the cleaning instructions very closely to
keep the hob looking like new.
·
If spillage occurs with sugar solutions, e.g.
jams and syrups, it must be wiped from the
hob before it sets and becomes hard
otherwise damage to the hob will occur.
6. Frying temperatures
DEEP FAT FRYING
SPECIAL FRYING NOTE:
For safety purposes when deep fat frying, fill the pan
one third full of oil, DO NOT cover the pan with a lid
and DO NOT leave the pan unattended. In the
unfortunate event of a fire, switch the appliance OFF
at the electricity supply and cover the pan with a lid
or damp cloth to assist in smothering the flames.

PRESERVING
1. DO NOT use a pan that overlaps the perimeter of
the hob trim.
2. To allow for a full rolling boil, the pan should be
no more than one third full when all the
ingredients have been added. It is better to use
two pans rather than overfill one, or use half
quantities.
DO NOT use water on the fire. Leave the pan to cool
for at least 30 minutes before moving it.
DO NOT leave the fat or oil in the frying pan on the
hob to store it in case the hob is inadvertently
switched ON.
3. Use firm fruit or vegetables and wash well before
using.
1. Preparing the food.
4. Preserving sugar gives clear jam, however
granulated sugar is cheaper and gives equally
good flavour.
Seal the food by coating with flour, egg and
breadcrumbs or batter. Do not use a basket with
batter coated foods as they will stick.
2. Amount of oil.
5. Crystallization may be caused if sugar is not
completely dissolved before bringing jam to the
boil. Over boiling will affect the flavour, setting
properties and colour of the jam.
For safety purposes fill the pan only one-third full
of oil.
3. Testing the temperature of the oil.
It is advisable to use a thermometer to test the
temperature of the oil. Alternatively, drop a
small cube of bread into the oil which should
brown in just under a minute if the oil is at the
correct temperature of 190°C/375°F.
6. To test jam for setting:
If a jam thermometer is available, boil jam to
104°C. Marmalade should be boiled to 106°C.
If a jam thermometer is not available, remove
pan from heat, place sample of jam on a cold
dish and cool quickly (i.e. in a freezer or frozen
food storage compartment of a refrigerator).
When cold, it will crinkle and hold the mark of a
finger run through it, if it is at setting point.
4. Cooking the food.
Lower the food gently into the oil. Do Not add
too much food at once or the temperature of the
oil will be reduced and may result in soggy,
greasy food.
Turn the food if necessary; doughnuts float to the
surface so will not brown on the upperside if not
turned.
Once cooked, drain the food on
absorbent paper.
7. The scum should be removed as soon as
possible after setting point has been reached.
Marmalade should be allowed to cool before
potting to prevent the peel rising.
15
THE GRILL
CAUTION – ACCESSIBLE PARTS MAY BECOME HOT WHEN THE GRILL IS IN USE.
CHILDREN SHOULD BE KEPT AWAY.
SELECTING THE GRILL
·
THE GRILL PAN AND HANDLE
To operate the grill, open the grill door and turn
the top oven/grill control clockwise so that ‘0’ on
the control knob lines up with setting 1, 2 or 3.
·
Setting 3 represents the grill on Full.
At settings 1 and 2 the grill may turn on and off
over time and you may prefer to use these
settings for keeping food warm.
The food will however continue to cook gently if
the grill is used for this purpose.
·
The top oven indicator neon will glow until the
oven has reached the desired temperature and
then go out. It will turn ON and OFF periodically
showing that the oven temperature is being
maintained.
The grill pan is supplied with 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.
When removing 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.
NOTE
THE GRILL DOOR MUST BE LEFT OPEN DURING
GRILLING. IF THE DOOR IS CLOSED THE TOP
OVEN WILL OPERATE.
·
The cooling fan will operate. For more details
about the cooling fan see page 9.
·
Some smoke from fat splashes may be evident
as the grill cleans itself.
·
The top oven cannot be operated when the grill
is in use.
·
The inner element may appear to glow slightly
brighter than the outer element. This is quite
normal.
Ensure your hand is protected when inserting
and removing the grill pan handle as the control
panel trim and grill element can become very hot.
ALWAYS REMOVE THE GRILL PAN HANDLE
DURING GRILLING.
16
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.
To check the progress of the food being grilled, the
grill pan should be withdrawn on the shelf to tend the
food during cooking.
·
Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed underneath the grid
when grilling meats.
·
When toasting bread use the straight shelf in
position 1 with the grid in the high position and
placing the bread in the centre of the grid.
·
Preheat the grill on a full setting for five minutes
before cooking. Adjust the shelf as necessary
during cooking.
·
The food should be turned over during cooking
as required.

HINTS AND TIPS
·
·
·
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.
Adjust the height of the grilling grid and grill pan
runner position to allow for different heights of
food
Place food on the grill pan or grid directly onto
the grill pan base.
Shelf positions are counted from the bottom up.
The times quoted above are given as a guide and
should be adjusted to suit personal taste.

THE TOP OVEN
USES OF THE TOP OVEN
The top oven is the smaller of the two ovens. It is heated by elements in the top oven and bottom of the oven. It is
designed for cooking smaller quantities of food. It gives especially good results if used to cook fruit cakes, sweet or
savoury flans or quiche.
The top oven is also ideal for use as a warming compartment to warm dishes and keep food hot.
temperature setting of 90°C – 100°C on the top oven control dial.

SELECTING THE TOP OVEN
·
TO FIT THE TOP OVEN SHELF
To operate the top oven turn the temperature
control to the required setting. Our diagram
shows the oven set to 150°C. Close the oven
door.
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.
THINGS TO NOTE
1. The grill cannot be operated when the top oven is
in use. Only the outer part of the top oven
element in conjunction with the base element will
operate when using the top oven.
2. The top oven indicator neon will glow until the
oven has reached the desired temperature and
then go out. It will then turn ON and OFF
showing that the oven temperature is being
maintained.
3. The cooling fan will operate. For more details
about the cooling fan see page 9.
4. Always place plates on the oven shelf to warm.
Never place dishes directly on the top oven base
as it becomes very hot and damage may occur.
18
HINTS AND TIPS
·
All cooking should be carried out using an oven
shelf positioned in one of the shelf runners.
·
Stand dishes on a suitably sized baking tray on
the shelf to prevent spillage onto the oven base
and to help reduce cleaning.
·
There should always be at least 2.5cm (1”)
between the top of the food and the 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 directly below the element.
·
DO NOT place dishes directly onto the oven
base as it becomes very hot and damage may
occur.
19
·
The material and finish of the baking trays 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.
·
DO NOT use the grill pan as a baking tray as this
will increase base browning of the food.
·
Because of the smaller cooking space, lower
temperatures and shorter cooking times are
sometimes required. Be guided by the
recommendations on page 22.
·
For economy leave the door open for the shortest
possible time, particularly when placing food into
a pre-heated oven.
THE MAIN FAN OVEN
USES OF THE FAN OVEN
PREHEATING
The fan oven quickly reaches its temperature, so it is not usually necessary to preheat the oven. Without
preheating however, you may find you 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 22. As a guide reduce temperatures by about 20°C – 25°C for your own
recipes, using a conventional oven.
BATCH BAKING
The fan oven cooks evenly on both shelf levels, especially useful when batch baking.
SELECTING THE FAN OVEN
Turn the fan oven temperature control to the required
setting.
TO FIT THE FAN OVEN SHELVES
THINGS TO NOTE
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.
1. The fan oven indicator neon will glow until the
oven has reached the required temperature and
then go out. It will turn ON and OFF periodically
during cooking showing that the temperature is
being maintained.
2. The cooling fan for the controls may switch in
after a time. See page 9 for more information on
the operation of the cooking fan.
20
HINTS AND TIPS
·
Arrange the shelves in the required positions
before switching the oven ON. Shelves positions
are numbered from the bottom upwards.
·
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.
·
When batch baking one type of food e.g. Victoria
sandwich cakes, those of similar size will be
cooked in the same time.
·
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.
·
DO NOT place baking trays directly on the oven
floor as it interferes with the oven air circulation
and can lead to base burning; use the lower shelf
position.
·
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 22.

The roasting temperatures and times given in the chart should be adequate for most joints, but slight adjustments
may be required to allow for personal requirements and the shape and texture of the meat. However, lower
temperatures and longer cooking times are recommended for less tender cuts or larger joints.
Wrap joints in foil if preferred, for extra browning uncover for the last 20 – 30 min. cooking time.

DEFROST FEATURE
USES OF DEFROST FEATURE
Small or thin fish fillets, frozen peeled prawns, cubed
or minced meat, liver, thin chops, steaks etc., can be
thawed in 1 – 2 hours.
This fan oven function defrosts most foods faster
than more conventional methods. 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.
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.
It is preferable to thaw fish, meat and poultry slowly
in the fridge. However, this process can be
accelerated by using the defrost function.
ALL JOINTS OF MEAT AND POULTRY MUST BE
THAWED THOROUGHLY BEFORE COOKING.
ALWAYS COOK THOROUGHLY IMMEDIATELY
AFTER THAWING.
SELECTING DEFROST
·
HINTS AND TIPS
Turn the fan oven temperature control to the
defrost setting.
·
When defrost is selected, the oven indicator neon
may come ON. It will stay ON until the oven
reaches room temperature and then go OFF.
·
It may turn ON and OFF periodically during
defrosting to maintain a steady room
temperature, inside the oven.
·
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.
·
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.
THINGS TO NOTE
Care must always be taken when handling foods in
the home. Always follow the basic rules of food
hygiene to prevent bacterial and microbial growth
and cross contamination when defrosting, preparing,
cooking, cooling and freezing foods.
24
CARE AND CLEANING
If Hob Brite is unavailable, one or more of the
cleaning agents below may be used temporarily:
a) Cif Cream Cleaner
b) Baking Soda
ALWAYS SWITCH OFF THE ELECTRICITY
SUPPLY AT THE MAIN WALL SWITCH AND
ALLOW THE APPLIANCE TO COOL
BEFORE CLEANING.
TO REMOVE MORE STUBBORN MARKS
CLEANING MATERIALS
1. Bar Keepers Friend may be used to clean off
more
stubborn
stains
or
to
remove
discolourations.
It may be necessary to rub the marks hard for
several minutes.
2. Use a plastic pad specially for non-stick
saucepans with Bar-Keepers Friend for removal
of more stubborn soilage.
Before using any cleaning materials on your
appliance, check that they are suitable and that their
use is recommended by the manufacturer.
Cleaners that contain bleach should NOT be used as
they may dull the surface finishes. Harsh abrasives
should also be avoided. Multi-surface anti-bacterial
cleaning products should not be used on the ceramic
hob or on the surrounding trims.
CLEANING THE BRASS OR CHROME
PLATED HANDLES
(WHERE APPLICABLE)
It is strongly recommended that only hot soapy water
is used for cleaning the handles. THE USE OF ANY
OTHER CLEANING MATERIALS MAY DULL THE
BRASS OR CHROME PLATED FINISH.
TO REMOVE BURNT ON SOILAGE
CLEANING THE CERAMIC HOB
We strongly recommend the use of a Ceramic Hob
Scraper (incorporating a single edge razor blade) to
remove spillage on the hob, in particular sugar
solutions, which if not removed can cause permanent
damage.
Make sure the ceramic glass is cool before cleaning.
It is important to clean the ceramic hob daily to
prevent soilage being burnt on.
Take care to avoid the hob trims when cleaning the
ceramic glass as they may be damaged by the
cleaning agents recommended.
1. Make sure the ceramic glass is cool.
2. Use a ceramic hob scraper with care at an angle
of 30° to remove as much soilage as possible.
DAILY CLEANING
3. Use Bar-Keepers Friend or Hob Brite to finish off
as directed above.
Use the recommended Hob Brite Cleaner daily. If
soilage is not allowed to burn on it will be much
easier to clean off.
1. Apply a small amount of Hob Brite in the centre
of each area to be cleaned.
TO REMOVE DISCOLOURATIONS OR
WHITE AND SILVER MARKS
These marks sometimes give the impression of being
in or underneath the hob glass. They can almost
always be removed provided they have not become
excessively burnt on. Follow the instructions above
under ‘To Remove more Stubborn Marks’.
2. Dampen a clean paper towel or a plastic pad
made specially for non-stick saucepans and rub
vigorously until all marks are removed. This may
take a few minutes.
3. Wipe off residues of cleaner with another damp
paper towel and polish dry with a soft cloth.
If this is unsuccessful, make up a paste of one part
water to three parts Cream of Tarter and leave on the
discoloured areas overnight. The marks should be
easily removable the next day provided they have not
been excessively burnt on. The paste should be
thoroughly washed off afterwards.

CLEANING THE
APPLIANCE
HINTS AND TIPS
TO REDUCE HOB SOILAGE:
·
Make sure the bottom of the saucepan and the
cooking area are clean and dry before cooking
begins.
·
Ensure saucepans are large enough
accommodate food to avoid boil overs.
·
If possible, wipe up spills and splatters as they
occur, but take care to avoid steam burns.
·
Avoid using a dishcloth or sponge to clean the
hob. These may leave a layer of soiled detergent
on the hob surface which will burn and discolour
the next time the hob is used.
·
Avoid the use of:
·
Household detergents and bleaches.
·
Impregnated plastic or nylon pads that are not
described as suitable for non-stick saucepans.
·
Brillo pads, Ajax pads, steel wool pads.
·
Chemical oven cleaners, e.g. aerosols and oven
pads.
·
Rust stain, bath and sink stain removers.
·
Any of the above products may cause
damage to the hob.
·
It is dangerous to mix different cleaning products.
The chemicals in them may react with each other
with hazardous results.
·
·

HAZARD
CLEANING THE GRILL AND OVEN
FURNITURE
Soilage from sugar solutions must be
removed from the hob before the syrup has
set otherwise damage to the hob surface will
occur.
All removable parts, except the grill pan handle can
be washed in the dishwasher.
The grill pan, grill pan grid and oven shelves may be
cleaned using a soap impregnated steel wool pad.
Soaking first in soapy water will make cleaning
easier.
Avoid placing plastic items, foil or dishes on the
hot surface as this will cause damage to the hob.
26
CLEANING INSIDE THE
GRILL COMPARTMENTS
OVEN
HINTS AND TIPS
AND
The sides and back panel of the main oven and
grill/top oven back and sides are coated with special
Stayclean coating.
The Stayclean surfaces inside the oven should not
be cleaned manually. See below ‘Care of Stayclean
Surfaces’.
The vitreous enamel main oven base, interior main
oven door and grill/top oven compartment base can
be cleaned using normal oven cleaners with care.
Ensure that the manufactures instructions are
followed and that all parts are well rinsed afterwards.
Aerosol cleaners must not be used on the
Stayclean rear oven panel and must not come
into contact with elements or the door seal as
this may cause damage.
For advice on how the keep the Stayclean surfaces
in good condition see ‘Care of Stayclean Surfaces’.
·
Manual cleaning of the Stayclean surfaces IS
NOT recommended.
Damage will occur if
abrasives or aerosol sprays of any kind are used.
·
Slight discolouration and polishing of the
Stayclean surfaces may occur in time. This does
not affect the Stayclean properties in any way.
·
A good time to allow the oven to run on is after
the weekly roast. After removing the roast, turn
the oven up to 220°C and allow to run for an hour
or so.
·
It is important not to allow a build-up of soilage as
this can prevent the Stayclean surfaces from
working.
·
Follow the recommendations below to keep oven
soilage to a minimum.
·
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 over-browned.
CARE OF STAYCLEAN SURFACES
The Stayclean surfaces destroy splashes of food and
fats when the oven temperature is raised to around
220°c.
It is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or two
per week to ensure continued good performance
from the Stayclean finish.
27
TO REPLACE THE OUTER GLASS
CLEANING THE DOOR GLASS
1. Holding the oven glass with both hands, gently
place the locators into the holes of the brackets
at the bottom of the oven door.
To prevent damaging or weakening of the

following:
·
Household detergents and bleaches
·
Impregnated pads unsuitable for nonstick saucepans
·
Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
·
Chemical oven pads or aerosols
·
Rust removers
·
Bath/Sink stain removers
2. Push the top of the oven glass towards the oven
