Your Astro oven has 8 cooking options. On the oven control panel each option is represented by a symbol.
BAKE
Traditional method of cooking, most suitable for food that requires long cooking or cooking at a
low temperature e.g. fruit cakes. The oven should be preheated first and is best for single trays.
The fan forces hot air from an element around the fan throughout the oven. This is good for cooking several
dishes or trays at one time, as you don’t have to worry about food being too close to the elements and
burning. It is really good for more than one tray of baking and for casseroles or oven meals.
A fan at the back of the oven circulates hot air from the top and lower
elements. Fan Bake tends to brown food more quickly so you may need to lower
the temperature. It is good for crisping foods e.g. pastry products and slices.
Top & lower heating element.
FAN FORCED
Fan plus fan element.
FAN BAKE
Fan plus top & lower elements.
Uses heat from the lower element only. The oven needs to be preheated on Bake or Fan Bake.
Use Classic Bake for quiches, slices, anything you want browner on the bottom than top.
CLASSIC BAKE

ECO GRILL
Uses the inner area of the top element. Use for single servings or small pieces of food.
Top inner element.
GRILL

FAN GRILL
Fan plus top elements.
DEFROST
Fan only.
Grill cooks a large area of food using the two top elements. For best results leave the door
open at first stop position. Grilled vegetables are quick and have a wonderful flavour.
The fan circulates the heat from the top elements. This is excellent for foods that
would normally be fried. Large cuts of meat cooked on Fan Grill give a result similar to
using a rotisserie. Dishes such as lasagne and moussaka can also be Fan Grilled.
Defrost circulates air from the fan without heat, to prevent food from drying out or starting
to cook. Thawed food should be removed from the oven and refrigerated until needed.
Multi trays may be defrosted.
INSPIRATION
Grill large slices of fruit e.g. bananas, mango,
peaches. Sprinkle with brown sugar, drizzle with
brandy and serve with ice cream.

OVEN TEMPERATURE GUIDE
Shallow tray
The shallow tray is a baking tray for biscuits and baked dishes. It can also be used to
support dishes for multi-level cooking.
Glass tray
The multipurpose glass tray is made from toughened glass to withstand high
temperatures. It is suitable for roasting and grilling, and can also be used as a
serving dish. The rim on the tray makes it easy to handle. The glass tray will not
distort or corrode, and it won’t shatter into small pieces if knocked.
Fat filter
The fat filter protects the fan against fat build up. The filter should be in place when
the fan options are being used for roasting.
Warning: Do not use fat filter when cooking baked products with the fan option.
Installing the fat filter
To install, hold the fat filter by the handle, insert the two tabs into the oval holes in
the fan cover, ensuring the filter covers the opening completely.
Important: The fat filter should be cleaned after every use. If the fat filter is not
cleaned, the filter will block and shorten the life of the fan element.

Your Astro oven gives a choice of Grill, Eco Grill or Fan Grill. For many meats grilling is considered to be a healthier alternative to frying.
Recently, grilling has also become a popular way to cook vegetables. Where approriate food should be at room temperature before being grilled.
Tips for successful grilling
Grill
Fan Grill
Preheat grill for 5 minutes before using. Leave the oven door open at
the first stop position so the grill element does not cycle on and off. For
Full Grill place food on the grill rack and sit in the deep tray. Slot into
the upper runners near the top of the oven (see Grilling Guide for most
appropriate shelf). Grill one shelf at a time.
When using Eco Grill place food on rack in deep tray in the middle where
the runners are further apart. When grilling the higher in the oven
food is placed the faster it will cook and brown. Food will cook and
brown faster set at HI or 250° and we recommend you grill at such
temperatures. Lower temperatures can be used for grilling if desired.
The oven does not need to be preheated and grilling is carried out
with the door closed.
The upper elements cycle on and off and the hot air is circulated by
the oven fan. The thermostat maintains the desired temperature.
Place food on the grill rack in the deep tray.
Slot the tray into a shelf position near the middle or lower part of the
oven (see Grilling Guide for most appropriate shelf).
Fan Grill is suitable for foods that you would normally pan fry, barbeque
or rotisserie, and for larger cuts of meat.
Warning: Accessible parts may become hot when the grill
is in use. Children should be kept away.
INSPIRATION
Marinate lamb cutlets in oil, balsamic vinegar and
fresh thyme. Grill to medium rare and cover with a
mixture of pureed basil, grated parmesan, brioche
crumbs and a little olive oil. Place under grill to cook.

When it comes to baking, your Astro oven gives you an outstanding choice of
options (refer to Cooking Options on pages 6 & 7).
Some foods are best cooked on particular functions. For example rich fruit
cakes and single cakes are best cooked on Bake without fan.
Tips for successful baking
A single tray of baking works best using bake, however if 2 or more trays
are cooked on Bake they will need to be interchanged during cooking to
ensure an evenly cooked product.
Set your oven to pre-heat while you prepare, many baked items don’t like to
be kept waiting for the oven.
Use baking paper to line cake tins and biscuit trays and you’ll eliminate the
need for greasing.
Read your recipe right through and assemble the ingredients on the bench
before you start, you’ll save yourself a lot of panics.
You may find temperatures on
Fan Bake need to be lowered.
Warning: Do not use fat filter when cooking baked products or fan
functions.
Fan Bake is great for pastry products such as bacon and egg and apple
pies as pastry crisps up well. You should always centre baking tins on trays.
Multi shelf cooking can be used with Fan Forced and Fan Bake. When
cooking 2 trays on Fan Bake cooking times may be longer and you may
need to remove some foods from the oven at different times.
Fan Forced is well suited to batch baking up to 3 trays at a time for
products like biscuits, scones and meringues.
Refer to the Baking Guide for suggested times, temperature and shelf
positions.
For best results we recommend you bake using the trays supplied with
your oven.

Your Astro oven is equipped to handle a variety of roasts - from a succulent leg
of lamb to the trimmed Christmas turkey (refer to Cooking Options on pages
6 & 7).
Tips for successful roasting
A large piece of meat requires fewer minutes per 500g/1lb than a smaller piece.
Roasting times will be affected by the shape and size of the meat being roasted.
Meat with a bone will cook more quickly than a rolled roast.
Don’t add water to your roast, as this has a steaming effect.
For perfect results, use a meat probe or meat thermometer.
The internal temperature of the meat will continue to rise during standing, so allow
for this in your calculations (this is particularly important if you want a rare or
medium rare roast).
It’s a good idea to let all roast meats stand for 10-15 minutes before carving - the
juices will be less likely to run out when you carve.
Warning: Do not place aluminum foil or dishes with reflective qualities on the
oven bottom as this will cause a heat build up which will result in
irreversible damage to the enamel.

Lemon and garlic leg of lamb is a quick and tasty roast. Peel and slice cloves of garlic. Make knife holes
in the meat to push the clove pieces into and drizzle with lemon juice. For best results, prepare in the
morning and leave to marinate in the fridge. Roast the lamb on Fan Grill at 180°C for 90 minutes.

Roasting can be achieved with a range of cooking options,
Fan Bake,
Fan Forced,
Bake and
Fan Grill can all be used for roasting each having
unique results. Meats roasted on Fan Grill cook and brown in a rotisserie style. Radiant heat sears the
outside surface while the inside remains tender and juicy.
Fan Forced is perfect for roasting when you also need to cook several other dishes simultaneously as
tray position is not as crucial as other functions. Use Fan Bake for cooking 1-2 trays, it tends to brown
and cook faster than Bake. Bake is the traditional method of roasting, cook 1 tray at a time.
The above temperatures and times are a guide only and you may need to increase or decrease
depending on your preferences and which cooking option you use. When cooking large cuts of meat
times and temperatures are based on 30 minutes per 500g/1 lb.

CLEANING
Cleaning Flood Lights
Cleaning Oven Runners
With the oven turned off at the wall, clean oven lights using household detergents
or an ammonia based cleaner (e.g. Handy Andy). Specialised oven cleaners may also
be used (follow manufacturers instructions). The glass covers can be removed for
cleaning or to allow bulb replacement. Always replace the cover before using the oven.
Warning: Ensure that the appliance is switched off at the wall before replacing the
oven lamp to avoid the possibility of electric shock.
Clean oven runners using household detergents or an ammonia based
cleaner (e.g. Handy Andy). Specialised oven cleaners may also be used (follow
manufacturers instructions).
Self Cleaning Liners
To reduce manual oven cleaning, your Astro oven has catalytic self-cleaning liners fitted
to the side walls and back of the oven. The liners are coated with a special enamel,
which is porous and contains oxidising catalysts. At normal cooking temperatures, the
grease and dirt that comes into contact with the liners is absorbed by the enamel and
broken down by the oxidising catalysts. The cleaning action is enhanced by a higher
temperature, so from time to time it may be necessary to run the oven at Fan Grill,
200°C for 1 to 11/2 hours if needed. Do this on a regular basis if a lot of cooking has
been carried out. The oven roof is also self-cleaning. Heat from the upper elements
break down any grease and dirt which may be deposited. Warning: Do not use
detergent, abrasives or oven cleaners on catalytic self-cleaning liners.
The wire side runners may be removed to make cleaning easier. To remove the
runners gently push the runner underneath the stud down and lift the runners up
and towards the centre of the oven. The prongs at the top will slide out.
To replace the runners, place top prongs into small slots at top of oven cavity,
lower runners and gently push wire underneath stud.
Warning: Do not lower runners until prongs are fully inserted.
Cleaning the Fat Filter
The fat filter should be cleaned after every use. If the fat filter is not cleaned the
filter will block and shorten the life of the fan element. For normal soiling, place
in a dishwasher on normal wash. If the fat filter is very dirty, place in a saucepan
with either 2 tablespoons of washing powder, or 1 tablespoon of dishwasher
powder. Bring to the boil and leave to soak for at least 30 minutes. Rinse the
filter in clean water and dry.
To refit the fat filter, hold the filter by the handle, insert the two tabs into the oval
holes in the fan cover, ensuring the filter covers the opening completely.
IMPORTANT
Please keep the following rules in mind when you’re cleaning your Astro Oven. Please read the cleaning instructions and the Safety & Warnings on page 22
before you start. Ensure the appliance is switched Off and cool to touch before cleaning. Be careful of sharp edges. Warning: Do not place aluminium foil or
dishes with reflective qualities on the oven bottom as this will cause a heat build up which will result in irreversible damage to the enamel.
Cleaning the Oven Door
Clean the inside of the oven door while it’s still warm using household detergents or an
ammonia based cleaner (e.g. Handy Andy). Specialised oven cleaners may also be used (follow
manufacturers instructions) or a razor blade scraper, handled carefully.
To make cleaning easier, you can remove the oven door. Open the door fully, lift the clips back
towards you onto the hooks, raise door slightly, (holding on both sides near the handle and
making sure that the clips stay on the hooks), lift the door out.
To put door back on, place upper hinge arm in upper slot and lower hinge arm in lower slot.
Push the hinges in as far as they will go. Lower door gently - the clips should release from
the hooks. Raise the door slightly and ensure the clips are released from the hooks. Close
the door.
Cleaning the Outside
Wipe the oven’s outside surfaces frequently using warm water and a household detergent or a
spray-on wipe-off cleaner. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
