Safety Instructions
To comply with safety regulations manufacturers have to draw
your attention to the following:
- According to the technical connection conditions of the elec-
tricity board serving your area, the. appliance may only be
connected to the mains supply by an approved electrical -
In the fixed connection, a device allowing the appliance to be
isolated on all poles from the mains supply with a contact open-
ing width of at least 3 mm must be provided. Suitable isclating
devices are line protection switches, fuses (to be removed
from the holder), FI switches and contactors.
Please note that in the case of built-in furniture units the plastic
coating or the venser must be applied with à heat resistant ad-
hesive (100 °C}. If the plastic coating and the adhesive are not
heat resistant, it is possible for the coating to deform or be-
come detached, particularly along the edges of the built-in fur-
niture units.
In respect of fire protection, the appliance conforms to type Y
(IEC 335-2-6). Only appliances of this type may be installed on
one side of adjacent upright kitchen housings or walls.
The distance between a hob and fume extractor hood
must be of the extent indicated in the installation in-
structions of the fume extractor hood.
The plinth recess can be adjusted to line up with the furniture
plinth of most types of kitchens.

Safety Instructions
- When you use the appliance to prepare your food, the
oven doors and cooking plates become hot. Therefore
keep small children well away from the appliance.
This especially applies when you are grilling or
pyrolyticaliy cleaning the oven (where applicable).
Overheated fat and cooking cil may ignite. Prepare foods re-
quiring fat or oil (chips) only under constant supervision.
Do not use the appliance to heat your room,
Take care when using small electrical appliances near the
cooker, Connection leads should not come in contact with not
hobs/cooking zones or get trapped in the hot oven door.
Do not use the ceramic hob as a table top.
The ceramic hob is very durable but under certain circum-
stances it can break, e. g., heavy or pointed objects dropping
onto the surface.
In the case of breakage or cracks, do not use the hob. Tum all
the controls for the hob to.0 and isolate the appliance from the
electrical supply.
Do not line the oven base with aluminium foil or place any other
cocking utensil on the base, as this will trap heating resulting in
damage to the enamel interior. This invalidates the warranty.
The cooling fan, where features in ovens and cookers, can
continue to run although all oven switches are turned off. It will
switch itself off automatically. The cooling fan can also come
on automatically although the oven is‘switched off if the resicu-
al heat in the oven is too high. The fan switches itself off auto-
The vitreous enamel in your oven is very durable. However vit
reous enamel is adversely affected by fruit acids (rhubard,
lemon, eic.) and tea which will discolour and dull the enamel.
The performance of the oven ig not affected. To prevent spill
age of the above coming in contact with the enamel, place the
cooking contamer on a baking sheet.
Do not place the grill/meat pan on the cooking plate to
make gravy. The direct heat will weaken the pan base result-
ing in warping and twisting of the pan when next used as a
meat or grill pan.
Do not use the door as as shell or resting area for oven
utensils as this may damage the glass and the door
Do not clean the inside or outside of the glass oven
doors with any abrasive cleaning agent as this creates
stress on the glass.
For safety reasons it is forbidden to clean the anpilance with a
steam or highpressure cleaning machine.
The appliance complies with radio interference suppression
specifications EN 55014 (previously EEC Directive 82/499)
and as appropriate with EN 60555 relating to the Retroactive
Effect of the Mains Supply.

E Bakeware
Cakes are baked either in cake tins or alternatively on baking-
sheets, full width baking sheets are available from AEG Spare
Parts as an optional extra.
How bakeware affects browning:
1. Bakeware, which is dark in colour, has a non-stick coating
or is made from aluminium is the best as heat is absorbed
and then transferred to the cake resulting in shorter cook-
‚ing times, lower energy consumption and better browning.
2. Bakeware which is light in colour or is made of tin reflect
the heat resulting in longer cooking times and poorer
browning. It is advisable not to use such bakeware when
using conventional top and bottom heat.
Baking on one level provides the best results in the
conventional mode.
The shallower the cake, the higher you should place it in the
Baking times and temperatures
In many cases, it is not necessary to preheat. The recom-
mended temperatures and times given in the enclosed chart
are guidelines only. To suit personal taste it may be necessary
to make small adjustmenis.
The hot air mode is recommended for all types of baking.
However, you may prefer cooked cheesecakes, sponges,
bread and rich fruit cakes cooked by the conventional meth-
When you use the hot air cooking system you can cook on
several levels simultaneously. This saves time, is convenient
and energy efficient. You can also cook different cakes at the —
same time for instance a Victoria Sandwich and a Bakewell
Tart or a Madeira Cake with a Dundee Cake. Simply make
sure that the cooking temperatures are roughiy the same and
that sufficient space is left between the shelves to allow the air
to circulate freely,
If baking cakes with a high moisture content such as several
apple pies, it may be advisable to use only 2 sheives at the
same time to prevent too much steam forming in the

E Baking times and temperatures
When baking with hot air it is often unnecessary to pre-heat
the oven. For exceptions see enclosed baking charts.
If you use the oven for batch baking, choose cakes which re-
quire simitar temperatures. Different cooking times can be
overcome by either placing cakes into the oven later or by re-
moving them earlier.
The baking chart is provided as a quick reference to keep near
the oven.
When baking on more than one level the time given in the
cooking charts has to be extended by 10-20 minutes.
m Baking on one or more levels

A note to Rotitherm roasting/arilling as this is a relatively new
method of cooking meat and poultry although spit roasting
which Rotitherm is replacing is not so new. Rotitherm is very
much more convenient to use than a spit and once you have
tried it you will be delighted with the results.
Roasting and stewing
Wipe and weigh the meat. If stuffing is used, weigh the stuffed
joint to calculate the cooking time. Place the joint in a suitable
roasting dish, season with salt and pepper and brush lean joints
with melted fat.

The times and temperatures given in the roasting chart provide a
quide only to cooking meat. Some adjustments may be neces-
sary, depending on the type of meat to be cooked. Cooking
times have been given for meat which is at room temperature.
Prime cuis can be cooked at higher temperatures than cheaper
cuts that require a longer cooking time to tenderise the meat. A
thick joint will require longer to cook through than a thinner one. A
boned rolled joint will require longer cooking time than one with -
the bone left in, as bone is a conductor of heat.
A small joint will require longer cooking, pro rata than a large one.
Allow an extra 30 minutes for joints up to and including 1.5 kg
(3 fos).
if the joint is cooked in foil the temperature has to be increased by
10 °C. To brown the joint, remove foil for the last 15 minutes or so
of the cooking time.
If cooking from frozen, place joint in a covered container and ex-
tend the calculated cocking time by approximately one third. To
brown and crisp meat, remove cover for the last 30 minutes of the
cooking period. |
_ and times
Never use stainless steel ovenware in the oven, since if reflects
the heat, Meat, poultry, and fish should be cooked in. ovenproof
dishes or in the meat pan for large quantities.
Choase a dish which is just a little larger than the joint itself. This
will contain any fat in a smaller area and reduce splashing. if you
wish to roast potatoes in the same dish around the joint rather
than in a separate one you need to make allowances for this
~ when; selecting a suitable dish.
Never place cooking containers on the base of the oven, but on
the wire shelf which you should insert on the 4th or 5th level from
the top depending on the size of the food to be cooked.
When using the Rotitherm roasting/grilling method. (where fea-
tured) place the joint on the wire shelf 3rd and 4th from the top
(depending on size of roast) and slot the апр-рап into the bth or
Eth from the top to catch the juices. If you want to roast potatoes
in the dripping, allow approximately 1-1% hours cooking time.
Turn the roast over halfway through cooking to ensure an all
round спер and brown joint.
Secondary oven
The secondary oven is useful for cooking small quantities of
food, e. g., one small cake or a small roast (max. 2 Kg). Do not
overload the secondary oven as too much food may result in-ex-
cessive amounts of steam developing.
When using the secondary oven place the cooking container on a
wire shelf having removed al! other oven equipment first.

Prime cuts of meat such as steaks and chops or fish weighing
less than 1 kg can either be fried or grilled. Sait large pieces short-
iy before grilling and small ones just after grilling.
Turn meat/fish after half the grilling time so that both sides are uni-
formly browned. Turn thin pieces once: thicker pieces need turn-

E The hot air oven is extremely versatile since you can cook a
complete meal in it. You can cook different foods at the same
time, such as fish and cakes, without any transter of smell or
taste from one to the other,
When menu cooking try to choose foods which require similar .
cooking temperatures.
When cooking meat in uncovered containers the fat filter
must be inserted.
Whan cooking pies or cakes at the same time as a roast you
can choose pies or cakes which normally cock at tempera-
tures 20 °C lower than the roast. Temperature differences of
10 °C lower than the roast can be compensated by longer or
shorter cooking times,
shelf positions are chosen according to the food being
cooked and in connection with the cooking guidelines in the
recipe book supplied.

For bottling, Use only jars with rubber seals and glass lids.
Never use jars with screw fittings or bayonet catches or metal
ting. And make sure you use fresh foodstuffs!
The oven holds 6 bottling jars of 1-1.5 litres capacity.
Place 1 cup of hot water in the drip-pan so thai the necessary
humidity is retained in the oven.
Position the jars in the enamelled pan on the 4th level from the
ton. The jars should not touch, must wherever possible be
filed ta the same level with the same contents and must be se-
curely clamped.
Vapour vent (where featured) closed.
To switch on, tum the cooking method selector to hot air
anc the oven temperature control to 160 °C.
Keep an eye on the food being bottled.
As soon as the liquid in the first ¡ars (when bottling fruit or -
gherkins) begins to bubble (after around 45 minutes for 1
litre jars) switch off the oven, but allow the jars to stand a fur-
ther 30 minutes or so — around 15 minutes for soft fruit, e. g.
strawberries — in the closed oven.
When bottling vegetables or meat, set back the oven tem-
perature control to 100 °C as soon as the liquid in the first ¡ars
begins to bubble and allow the contents to cook for a further
60-90 minutes. Then switch off the oven and allow the jars to
stand a further 30 minutes in the closed oven.

Cleaning and care
- Although ceramic hobs are easy to clean they require regular
care and cleaning to-maintain them in good condition. Let the hob
cool down before cleaning.
1. Never use abrasive cleaners or scouring powders or scouring
2. Clean the hob after every use while the -sollage is still minimal.
Use a soft damp cloth and a little washing up liquid. Rub the
hob dry using a soft clean cloth. Make sure that no residual
cleaning material is left on the hob.
3. Once a week clean the hob thoroughly with “Stahl-fix” or "WK-
Top" {available from AEG Spare Parts Department) using a
soft clean cloth, Clean the hob with clean water and polish dry
with a clean soft cloth. Make sure that no cleaning material is
left on the hob to prevent damage to the hob.
Boiled over food
Soften such soilage with a damp cloth then remove deposits
carefully using a glass scraper in a patent holder. Then clean the
hob as described under 3.
Sugar and foodstuifs containing sugar - Plastic materials
Do not allow any of the above to come in contact with the hob. If
they do, remove from the hob immediately while still hot using a
glass scraper in a patent holder. Then clean hob after it has
cooled down as described under 3. Melted sugar or plastic may
damage the hob permanently. Damage by the above may be re-
duced by regular treatment with "Collo-profi" or “Cera-fix"
(cleanerconditionen avallabie from AEG Spare Parts Depart-
Mineral deposits present in hard water and food may cause dis-
coloration in the form of grey, blue or mother of pearl stains which
appear to be in the surface: Clean such discolorations while the
cooking area is still warm (not hot) as described under 3.
Make sure thai the cooking areas and ihe pan bases are clean
before use. Grit for instance from vegetable peelings will scratch
and damage the hob surface.

These instructions refer to a large range of AEG doubie
and single ovens.
Ш All secondary ovens have a catalytic roof panel as stan-
Same models have a complete catalytic set provided as stan-
dard, -For those models which do not have it as standard it is
available as an optional extra.
M The main oven has catalytic roof (except Vitratherm ceramic
roof models), sides and back panels, either as standard or
they are available as optional extras from your AEG retaller de-
pending on the model you selected to buy {except ovens
which include microwave). If your main oven has a pyrolytic
self-cleaning system, then also consult the relevant pages for
cleaning the oven.
Before cleaning the ovens
Allow the ovens to cool down if they have been used before
cleaning. Switch off the ovens before cleaning.
Ovens which are cleaned after every use need very little attention.
If left and used again fat splashes will bake on and are then diffi-
cult to remove.
The outer glass of the oven door is not hermetically sealed, so
take care when cleaning to prevent moisture from running down
on the inside of the glass.
Clean glass surfaces, trims and controls with a soft cloth and
lukewarm water, Polish dry with a soft cloth.
The ceramic glass oven roof (Vitratherm — where featured) can be
cleaned with an oven spray or with "Ovenpad” or “Kleenoff™.
Vitreous enamel interior surfaces can be cleaned with.
- — a damp cloth and mild detergent
— cream cleaners such as "Jif" and a cloth.
— oven cleaners such as "Ovenpad” or “Kleenoff”. Do follow the
manufacturer's instruction on the cleaning materials you use
Take care that oven cleaners do not come in contact with. the fan
or any other part of the oven other than the vitreous enamel.
Do not use scouring pads or abrasive powder which may
scratch the surface of any part of the appliance.
Do not use any detergents, abrasives or oven cleaners on
catalytic liners.

it should not normally be necessary to ciean the catalytic
water. If you feel you would like to do so, take out the roof and
wash in warm, soapy water, followed by rinsing in clear water.
If your oven has a catalytic roof, sides and back panel either as
standard equipment or if you have bought these parts separately
and fitted them, then the following information will be of interest to
The liners help io keep the oven cleaner as they clean themselves
to a great extent during roasting and baking at temperatures
above 200 °C. As cleaning may be improved by exposure to a
higher temperature it may be necessary to run the oven at 250 °C
for 1 or 2 hours per week. Before carrying out such a heat cycle,
remove all oven equipment and make sure that you have cleaned
the unlined surfaces to prevent any soil fromrbaking on. For isotat-
ed stubborn stains use a soft brush and very hot scapy water.
Never use abrasive cleaners or scouring powders.
Warning! Isolate the oven from supply before replacing
the oven lamp(s).
To clean the glass cover(s) or change the oven lamp{s) the -
glass cover(s) should only be unclipped by hand. Do not
use tools of any kind.
After cleaning the lamp cover(s) or changing the light bulbís) refit
the lamp cover(s).
You can illuminate the oven for cleaning. To do this, turn the
