The different functions and uses of the oven
Thermostat Light (L)
This light indicates that the oven is heating. When it turns
off, the temperature inside the oven has reached the setting made with the thermostat knob. At this point, the light
will turn on and off as the oven maintains the temperature
at a constant level.
The various functions included in the cooker are selected by
operating the control devices located on the cooker control panel.
Notice: The first time you use your appliance, we recommend that you set the thermostat to the highest setting
and leave the oven on for about half an hour with nothing
in it, with the oven door shut. Then, open the oven door
and let the room air. The odour that is often detected during this initial use is due to the evaporation of substances
used to protect the oven during storage and until it is installed.
Cooking Control Timer Knob (only a few models)
Some models are equipped with a timer program to control
when the oven shuts off during cooking. To use this feature,
you must wind the "M" knob one full turn in the counterclockwise direction
Attention: Only use the bottom shelf of the oven when
using the rotisserie to cook (where present). For all other
types of cooking, never use the bottom shelf and never
place anything on the bottom of the oven when it is in
operation because this could damage the enamel. Always
place your cookware (dishes, aluminium foil, etc. etc.) on
the grate provided with the appliance inserted especially
along the oven guides.
direction , to set the time by matching up the indicator
on the control panel with the number of minutes on the
knob.
At the end of the programmed length of time, the timer will
sound and automatically turn off the oven.
Attention: to use the oven in manual mode without the
cooking control timer, match the indicator on the control
symbol on the timer knob.

When the oven is not in use, the cooking control timer can
be used like a normal timer.
Attention: to use the oven in manual mode without the
cooking control timer, match the indicator on the control
panel with the
; Then, turn the knob in the clockwise
Using the grill pan kit
Position the handle on the grill pan so that it fits into the
small recess (fig. 1), tilt it upwards and slide it towards the
centre (fig. 2).
The food must be placed on the rack in the grill pan.
Position the grill pan on top of the oven rack. The best
results are achieved by placing the oven rack on the
uppermost shelves. Pouring a little water into the grill pan
will make the collection of grease particles more efficient
and prevent the formation of smoke.
symbol on the timer knob.
Cooling ventilation (only in certain models)
In order to cool down the exterior of the appliance, some
models are equipped with a cooling fan which comes on
automatically when the oven is hot.
When the fan is on, a normal flow of air can be heard
exiting between the oven door and the control panel.
Note: When cooking is done, the fan stays on until
the oven cools down sufficiently.
Using the oven
When the oven control knob (G) is turned in a clockwise
direction to the symbol
the fan and oven light will
come on to assist in the defrosting of frozen food. Rotating
further to the complete range of temperatures shown on
the dial you can choose which is most suitable for the
food you are going to cook. The temperature is reached
automatically and controlled by the oven thermostat (from
60°C to 240°C).
Note: Whilst using tag oven for conventional cooking knob
(O) must be set with “MAX” in line with the reference mark
on the control panel.
Grill
The top heating element will come on. On this setting,
food is cooked by the thermal radiation given off in the
downward direction by the electric heating element. The
very high temperature and direct heat of the grill make it
possible to brown meats on the surface while locking in
the juices to keep them tender.
Oven Light
The light comes on when the "G" knob is turned to the
setting. The light illuminates the oven and remains
on when any of the heating elements is turned on.

Cooking advice
When using the oven, only one rack or drip pan should be
used at a time. The rack or pan should be inserted into
the bottom or top guides depending on whether the food
needs more heat from the top or bottom.
Cooked well on the inside but sticky on the
outside
Use less liquid, lower the temperature, and increase
the cooking time.
Preheating
If the oven must be preheated (this is generally required
for leavened foods), we recommend using the
"conventional" oven feature which makes it possible to
reach the temperature desired in a very short time. After
the oven has been preheated, the red indicator light (I)
will turn off. At this point, you can select the most suitable
setting to cook the dish.
The pastry sticks to the pan
Grease the pan well and sprinkle it with a dusting of
flour.
I used more than one level and they are not all at
the same cooking point
Cooking Fish and Meat
Meat must weigh at least 1 Kg in order to prevent it from
drying out. When cooking white meat, fowl and fish, use
low temperature settings (150°C-175°C). For red meat
that should be well done on the outside while tender and
juicy in the inside, it is a good idea to start with a high
temperature setting (200°C-220°C) for a short time, then
turn the oven down afterwards. In general, the larger the
roast, the lower the temperature setting. Place the meat
on the centre of the rack and place the drip pan beneath it
to catch the fat.
Make sure that the rack is inserted so that it is in the centre
of the oven. If you would like to increase the amount of
heat from below, use the low rack heights. For savory
roasts (especially duck and wild game), dress the meat
with lard or bacon on the top.
Use a lower temperature setting. It is not necessary to
remove the food from all the racks at the same time.
Using the Grill
Grilling may be carried out with a two stage heating
element situated in the top of the oven chamber. The
centre, or the complete area of the grill can be selected
by turning the oven control knob (G) in a clockwise
direction to align the symbols
with the mark on the
control panel. The variable temperature control (O) is
positioned to right of the oven knob. This knob will provide
varying grill temperatures when rotated from “max” to
“min” and may be adjusted to vary the level of heat at any
time during the grilling operation.
To operate the grill
1. Turn the oven control knob (G) clockwise until the
required grilling symbol is in line with the mark on the
control panel. The element is now “on”.
2. The variable grill control (N) can now be operated to
select the required heat.
Cooking Pastries
Always preheat the oven when cooking pastries. Do not
open the door in order to prevent the pastry from dropping.
The batter or dough should not be too liquidy so that the
cooking time is not excessive. In general:
Pastry is too dry
When utilizing the grill, place the rack at the lower levels
(see cooking table). To catch grease or fat and prevent
smoke, place a drip pan at the bottom rack level.
Increase the temperature by 10°C and reduce the
cooking time.
Pastry dropped
Use less liquid or lower the temperature by 10°C.
Pastry is too dark on top
Place it on a lower rack, lower the temperature, and
increase the cooking time.

Pratical advice for using the electric plates
Electric hotplate indicator light (H)
This light comes on when any of the electrical hotplates on a
hob which features electric hotplates have been turned on.
The control knobs for the hob electric hotplates (I)
The cookers can be fitted with normal and rapid electric
hotplates in a variety of combinations (the rapid hotplates
can be distinguished from the rest by the red boss in the
centre of the same). To avoid any heat loss and damage to
the hotplates, we advise you to use pans with a flat bottom,
with a diameter which matches that of the hotplate itself. The
table contains the different settings indicated on the knobs
and the use for which the hotplates are recommended.

User's instructions the ceramic hob
Instructions for using the pyroceram top
To obtain the best results from your hob, there are some
basic rules to follow when cooking or preparing food.
• All types of pots and pans may be used on the ceramic
glass cooktop. However, the bottom surface must be
perfectly flat (see Fig. A). Naturally, the thicker the
bottom of the pot or pan, the more uniformly the heat
is distributed.
Description
The hobs have been provided with radiant electric heaters.
These heaters are incorporated under the surface of the
hob as zones which redden while they are in use.
A. Cooking area (A).
B. A lights which indicate whether the corresponding
heaters are at a temperature in excess of 60° C; even
if the hob/zone has been switched off.

Fig. A
• Make sure that the base of the pan completely covers
the cooking ring, so as to make full use of the heat
produced (Fig. B)
A
B
Fig. B
• Always make sure that the pan base is always dry and
clean so as to guarantee proper contact as well as
longer-lasting pans and the long life-span of the hob.
• Do not use the same pans which are used for cooking
on gas burners. The heat strength of gas burners may
deform the pan base and will not give the same results
if it is subsequently used on a glazed ceramic hob.
Description of the heating elements
The radiant heating elements are composed of circular
heating elements. They only become red after being turned
on for 10-20 seconds.

Cooker routine maintenance and cleaning
Disconnect the oven from the source of electricity
before performing any maintenance or cleaning. To
ensure a long life for your oven, clean it frequently and
carefully, keeping in mind that:
• Do not use steam equipment to clean the appliance.
• the enamelled parts and the self-cleaning panels
should be washed with warm water without the addition
of abrasive powders or corrosive substances which
could damage the finish;
• stainless steel may become marked if it comes into
contact with very hard water or harsh detergents
(containing phosphorous) for long periods of time. After
cleaning, it is advisable to rinse thoroughly and dry. It
is also recommended to dry any water drops;
• avoid dirt and grease accumulating on the control panel
by cleaning it frequently. Use non-abrasive sponges or
soft cloths to avoid scratching enamelled or shiny steel
parts.
• Clean the glass part of the oven door using a sponge
and a non-abrasive cleaning product, then dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth. Do not use rough abrasive
material or sharp metal scrapers as these could scratch
the surface and cause the glass to crack.

Replacing the oven lamp
• Unplug the oven from the mains;
• Remove the glass cover of the lamp-holder;
• Remove the lamp and replace with a lamp resistant to
high temperatures (300°C) with the following
characteristics::
- Voltage 230V
- Wattage 25W
- Type E14
• Replace the glass cover and reconnect the oven to
the mains.
Cleaning the hob surface
Prior to cooking, the hob surface should always be cleaned
using a damp cloth to remove any dust or stray food
particles. The hob surface should be regularly cleaned
with a lukewarm solution of water and a mild detergent.
Periodically it may be necessary to use a proprietary
ceramic hob cleaner. First remove all spilt food and fat
with a window scrape, preferably the razor blade type
(not supplied) or, failing that, the fixed blade
razor edge type (see Fig. A). Then clean the hob while it
is still warm to the touch with a suitable cleaner and paper
towel.
Then rinse it and wipe it dry with a clean cloth .If aluminium
foil or plastic items are accidentally allowed to melt on the
hob surface they should be immediately removed from
the hot cooking area with a scraper. This will avoid any
possible damage to the surface. This also applies to sugar
or any food with a high sugar content.
Do not use abrasive sponges or scourers of any type.
Corrosive cleaners such as oven sprays and stain
removers should also not be used (see Fig. B).
