Hotplates General Information Notes
Do Not
Do not
cook directly on the hob surface without a cooking utensil, as this will result in damage to the surface of the
hob.
Do not
use the hob as a worktop surface as damage may occur to the smooth surface of the hob.
Do not
drag or slide utensils on the hob surface, as this will cause scratches in the surface of the hob.
Do not
allow a cooking utensil to come into contact with the hob surround.
Do not
place anything between the base of the utensil and the ceramic hob, e.g. do not use asbestos mats, aluminium
or wok stand.
Do not
leave any utensils, food or combustible items on the hob when it is not in use.
Do not
place aluminium or plastic foil, or plastic containers on the hob.
Do not
leave the hotplates or cooking areas switched On unless they are being used. We recommend not to place
large preserving pans or fish kettles across two heating areas.
Do not
leave utensils partly covering the heated areas. Always ensure that they are placet centrally over the heated
areas and have the same diameter as the heating area used.
We recommend not to use a utensil with a base diameter greater than 25cm (l0ins).
Pressure cookers or other large pans should be used on the front cooking areas.
Always ensure that saucepan handles are positioned safely.
12
Choosing Your Utensils
Do not
use utensils with rough bases.
Do not
use lightweight utensils with thin, distorted or uneven bases.
Do not
use lightweight enamelled steel utensils.
Do not
use cast iron utensils.
Do not
use utensils with recessed, scrolled or ridged bases.
Do not
use a utensil which has a base concavity greater than l mm as this will reduce the performance of the hob.
Do not
use a utensil with a convex base.
Do not
use glass ceramic utensils.
Do not
use use lightweight saucepans with plain thin copper bases on ceramic or halogen hot plates.
Note: 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.

l
l
Open the grill door.
Pre-heat the grill on setting 6 for approximately 5 minutes (see chart on guide to grilling).
Fix the grill pan handle securely in position. See below.
Food which only requires browning should be placed directly on/in the grill pan in the grill pan
runner, or on the floor of the grill compartment. (the grill pan grid may be removed.)
l Leave the control on setting 6 for toast, sealing and fast cooking of foods. For thicker foods
requiring longer cooking turn the control to a lower setting after the initial sealing, on both sides,
on setting 6. The thicker the food the lower the control should be set.
Warning: Take care as the grill will be hot – always wear oven gloves. Always ensure
that the grill pan is clean BEFORE use. Excess fat build up in the bottom of the pan
could cause a fire hazard. Never line grill pan with foil.
Fixing the Grill Pan The grill pan handle is detachable from the pan, to facilitate cleaning and storage. Fix the grill pan
handle securely in position before use.
Handle
The handle fits onto the grill pan edge with the small recess, Fig.1.
Tilt the handle over the recess and slide it towards the centre, Fig.2.
Ensure the handle is fully located. Insert the washer and fixing screw and tighten fully to ensure

Conventional Oven
Oven Control
Heating of the oven is achieved by turning 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 will then automatically go off and on during cooking as the oven
thermostat maintains the correct temperature.
The cooking charts provided in this book 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.
The oven is fitted with two rod shelves. The oven is heated by two tubular sheathed elements
located under the floor of the oven and on the oven roof, inside the cavity. It should be noted that at
the end of a cooking period there may be a momentary puff of steam when the oven door is
opened. This will disperse in a few seconds and is a perfectly normal characteristic of an oven with
a good door seal.
Oven Positions
The correct positioning of food is indicated in the temperature charts.
To prepare meat and poultry for roasting in your conventional oven.
(a) 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 cook ing, and frozen meat or poultry must be completely defrosted before placing
in the oven.
(b) The weight of any stuffing used should be added to the oven ready weight of the meat / poultry
before calculating the cooking time.
(c) Place the joint in the meat pan supplied with your cooker. Small joints weighing less than 1.75kg
(31/2 lbs) should be roasted in a smaller meat pan/tin - or they may be ‘pot roasted’ - a small joint
in a large meat pan causes unnecessary oven splashing and evaporation of meat juices.
(d) Additional fat should not be added, except for veal, very lean meat or poultry which can either be
‘larded’ with fat bacon or brushed very sparingly with cooking oil or melted fat.
(e) Beef, lamb, mutton and poultry may be dusted lightly with seasoned flour to give a crisp outer
surface. The skin of duck and goose should be pricked to release excess fat during cooking, and
the rind of pork should be scored, brushed lightly with oil, and rubbed with salt, to give crisp
crackling.
(f) Potatoes for roasting only require to be brushed with cooking oil or melted fat.
(g) It is not necessary to baste when roasting in an electric oven and stock or liquid should not be
added to the meat pan since this only causes unnecessary soiling, steam and condensation.
For optimum cooking performance, there must be clearance between meat pan and oven
sides. The meat pan must be placed lengthways in the oven to allow for air circulation.
Times and
Temperatures
for Roasting
The secret of succulent, tender meat, is not to roast it too quickly, at too high a temperature. Best
results are obtained when roasting is carried out at a low temperature. When a lower temperature
is used, the joint loses less weight, is more tender (too high a temperature causes meat to be
tough and dry) and the splashing of fat onto the oven interior is reduced to a minimum. 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). The suggested times and
temperatures 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 (3 lbs) takes longer per 450g (1 lb) cook in the time given for
‘minutes’ per 450g (1 lb) without the ‘minutes’ over added.
(c) Boned/rolled and stuffed joints take longer to cook through than those with a bone.
N.B.
Remember to switch off the oven control after cooking is finished. If the door of the oven is left
open for long periods of time with the control switch ON, then the grill element will become hot. The
correct positioning of food is indicated in the temperature charts.

If using aluminium foil, never:
1. Allow foil to touch sides of oven.
2. Cover oven interior with foil.
3. Cover shelves with foil.
The most accurate method of testing the readiness of joints of meat or whole poultry is to insert a meat thermometer
into the thickest part of a joint, or the thickest part of poultry thighs, during the cooking period. The meat thermometer
will indicate when the required internal temp has been reached.

Using the Main Oven for Other Functions
‘S’
SLOW Setting
This is used for slow cooking, keeping food warm and warming plates for short periods. Extra care
should be taken when warming bone china, as it may be damaged in a hot oven.
DO NOT place food or plates directly on the oven floor as this could damage both the oven
lining and the plates which are being warmed.
Advantages of “SLOW” cooking are:
The oven stays cleaner because there is less splashing.
Timing of food is not as critical, so there is less fear of overcooking.
Inexpensive joints of meat are tenderised.
Fully loading the oven can be economical.
Cooking times can be extended in some cases by up to 2 hours.
Operation:
1. Place the prepared food in the main oven and ensure the door is fully closed.
2. Select ‘S’ (Slow Cooking Temperature) by turning the Main Oven Control clockwise ensuring the
oven door is fully closed.
Storage and re-heating of food:
1. If food is to be frozen or not used immediately, place it in a clean container and cool as soon as
possible.
2. Always thaw frozen food completely in the refrigerator before re-heating.
3. Always reheat food thoroughly and ensure it is piping hot before serving.
4. Only re-heat food once.
Points to consider when preparing food for “SLOW” cooking:
1. Make sure that the dishes to be used will fit into the oven ensuring enough room for air to
circulate.
2. All dishes cooked on the slow setting will require a minimum of 6 hours, however, if they are
cooked for 1 -2 hours longer then deterioration in their appearance may be noticed.
3. Never cook joints of meat over 2.7kg (6 Ib) or poultry over 2.0kg (4lb 8oz).

4. To seal in the meat juices, always cook meat or poultry at 170°C for 30 minutes before wrapping
in foil and placing on a rack over a tin (to allow good air circulation) before turning the control to the
slow setting and cooking immediately.
5. Always ensure that joints of pork and poultry are thoroughly cooked by checking with a meat
thermometer before serving.
6. Always thaw frozen foods completely before cooking. We do not recommend placing frozen food
in the oven to cook.
7. Always bring soups, liquids and casseroles to the boil before placing in the oven.
8. Ensure that casserole dishes have a good seal (not airtight) and cover to the top with foil to
prevent loss of moisture.
9. Ensure that fruit and vegetables are cut into even sized small pieces to cook properly.
10. Always adjust seasoning before serving.
11. If using dried red kidney beans it is important that the beans are soaked and then boiled fora

Care and Cleaning
Electric sealed
hotplates
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 spillages 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 the restorative agent Homecare Four Hob, available from our spares
department or leading supermarkets. 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.
Note: 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.
Grill
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 grill runners and the floor of the
compartment. Wipe over the control panel with a damp cloth and polish with a dry cloth.
Control Panel
Do not use cream cleaners, oven cleaners or aerosols, scouring pads or abrasive powder for
cleaning the plastic knobs as damage will occur.
Decorative Trims
It is advisable to clean the decorative trims regularly to prevent any build up of soiling. The
recommended method of cleaning is to wipe over the trims with a soft cloth wrung out in warm
water or mild non-abrasive cleaner. (If in doubt try the cleaner on a small area of trim which is not
noticeable in normal use). Then, after wiping with a cloth wrung out in clear water, dry with a soft
clean cloth.
Doors
Wipe over the outer door glass panels with a cloth wrung out in warm soapy water, then after
wiping with a cloth wrung out in clear water, dry with a soft clean cloth. Ensure that glass doors
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. Ensure the glass
panel is not subjected to any sharp mechanical blows. Take particular care not to damage the
inner surface which is coated with a heat reflective layer. After cleaning, rinse and dry with a soft
cloth. 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.
Take care during cleaning not to damage or distort the door seals. Do not lift the door seal from
the oven chassis, if necessary remove the seal by carefully unhooking the corner clips.
Take care that the rating label edges are not lifted during cleaning, and furthermore that the
lettering is not blurred or removed.
Ovens
Remove the rod shelves and grill pan. Use a fine steel wool soap pad to remove stubborn stains
from the rod shelves, grill pan and the floor of the oven.
Oven Shelf
Supports
The shelf supports are removable and dishwasher safe.
To remove hold the support at the front and pull away from the oven side, this can then be cleaned
in a sink or a dishwasher. When removed it allows access to the oven side, which can be cleaned
with warm soapy water.
To refit the support, insert the longer leg into the rear fixing hole and push in the front leg.
Oven Lamp
Replacement
Open the oven door and remove the rod shelves. Using a suitable cloth to protect the fingers grip
the light glass dome, unscrew anti-clockwise and lift. Reach into the aperture with fingers, and
unscrew the lamp anticlockwise. Fit replacement lamp (25W 300°C rated SES), refit dome.
WARNING: To avoid electric shocks - please ensure that the electricity supply to the
appliance is switched off and the appliance is fully cold, before removing the lamp lens.
