Hob & Cooker Safety
✔ Always ensure that pan bases are dry, and flat before
using them on the hob.
✔ Always position pans over the centre of the burner, and
turn the handles to a safe position so they cannot be
knocked or grabbed.
✔ Always use pans which are no smaller than 100mm
(4”), or larger than 250mm (10”).
✔ Always take care when removing food from the oven
as the area around the cavity may be hot.
✔ Always use oven gloves when handling any utensils
which have been in the oven as they will be hot.
✔ Always make sure that the oven shelves are resting in
the correct position in between two runners. Do not
place the oven shelves on top of the highest runner,
this will lead to spillage and injury if the baking tray, or
dish falls.
✖ Never use double pans, rimbased pans, old or
misshapen pans, or any pan which is not stable on a
flat surface.
✖ Never leave cooking fat, or oil, unattended.
✖ Never use commercial simmering aids, or heat
diffusers, as they create excessive heat and can
damage the surface of the hob.
✖ Never use the hob for any other purpose than cooking
✖ Plastic cooking utensils can melt if they come into
contact with a warm hob. Never leave them close to,
or on top of, the hob.
✖ Never leave the burner alight without a pan covering it.
This causes a fire hazard.
✖ Do not place items on the grill door while it is open.
✖ Do not wrap foil around the oven shelves, or allow it to
block the flue.
✖ Do not drape tea towels near the oven while it is on,
this will cause a fire hazard.
✖ Do not pull heavy items, such as turkeys, or large
joints of meat, out from the oven on the shelf, as they
may overbalance and fall.
✖ Do not use this appliance to heat anything other than
food items, and do not use it for heating the room.

Energy Saving
Position pans centrally over the elements.
Only heat the amount of liquid you need.
Once liquids have been brought to the boil, reduce the
heat setting to a simmer.
Consider using a pressure cooker if possible.
Vegetables in small pieces will cook quicker.
Use a pan which is a close match to your element size.
Smaller elements are ideal for simmering and stewing
in smaller pans, while the larger elements are ideal for
frying and boiling

Fan Oven Guide
Some adjustment will have to be made to conventional
cooking temperatures.
The table below shows conventional cooking
temperatures, fanned temperatures and gas marks.
For optimum results using the fanned oven setting,
conventional temperatures need to be converted to the
fanned oven temperatures.
For example and item which would cook at 180˚C will
now cook at the fanned oven temperature of 160˚C.
This is a high efficiency oven, you may notice an
emission of steam when the door is opened.
When cooking chilled or frozen foods, use the
recommended cooking times and temperature on the
packaging. Always make sure the food is piping hot
throughout before serving.
There are no zones of heat, and no flavour transfer when
using a fanned oven - allowing you to cook a greater
variety of foods together.
If you are cooking on more than one shelf, you may need
to slightly increase the cooking time.
Always make sure that there is enough space between
dishes, to allow food to rise, and for air to circulate.

Cooking Guide
When using the conventional oven, we recommend
pre-heating for around 5 to 15 minutes before placing
your dishes in. This is especially important for items
which are chilled, frozen, batter based, yeast based or
whisked sponges.
If you are using a fanned function, you should still preheat but for a shorter time.
The items in the cooking guide below are based on a
pre-heated oven, but can be adjusted to take into account
personal taste.
Oven and bakeware
Always use high quality trays and tins for cooking. Poor
quality tins and trays can warp in the oven producing
uneven results.
Never use dishes which are cracked, damaged or not oven
proof as heating may lead to shattering inside the oven.

Roasting Guide
Roasting times depend on the weight, shape and texture
of the meat and personal preference. In order to
calculate the roasting time, weigh the meat or poultry,
including the stuffing, and follow the times given
Meat joints (including chicken) should be roasted at
180 - 200˚C Conventional/ 160 - 180˚C Fanned for
20 - 30 mins per 450g/1lb, plus 20 minutes on shelf
position 2.
Frozen meat must be thoroughly thawed before
cooking. For large joints, it is advisable to thaw
Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before
cooking. The time required depends on the size of the
bird - eg: a large turkey may take up to 48 hours to
When cooking stuffed meat or poultry, calculate the
cooking time from the total weight of the meat plus the
Cooking joints in foil, covered roasters, lidded
casseroles, or roasting bags will help to reduce meat
shrinkage, give a more moist result and may reduce fat
splashing. However, a slightly longer cooking times will be
required, add 5 - 10 minutes per 450g (1lb) to the
calculated cooking time. When using roasting bags do
not exceed the temperatures recommended by the
manufacturer, and do not allow the roasting bag to touch
the sides or top of the oven.
Use of a trivet with the roasting tin will reduce fat
splashing during open roasting, and will help to keep the
oven interior clean.
The use of a roasting tin larger then that supplied is not
advised, as this may impair performance and lead to
extended cooking times.
Roasting Guide
Roast turkey
Roasting turkey perfectly involves cooking two different
types of meat - the delicate light breast meat, which
must not be allowed to dry out, and the darker leg meat,
which takes longer to cook.
The turkey must be roasted long enough for the legs to
cook, so frequent basting is necessary. The breast meat
can be covered once browned.
Turkey should be roasted at 180 - 190˚C Conventional/
160˚C Fanned for 20 mins per 1lb, plus 20 minutes.
The turkey can be open roasted, breast side down, for
half of the cook time, and then turned over for the
remainder of the cooking time.
If the turkey is stuffed, add 5 minutes per 1lb to the
cooking time.
If roasting turkey covered with foil, add 5 minutes per
1lb to the cooking time.
To test if the turkey is cooked, push a fine skewer into
the thickest part of the thigh. If the juices run clear, the
turkey is cooked. If the juices are still pink, the turkey
will need longer cooking. Always make sure that the
turkey is cooked properly before serving.
Turkey Roasting times.
Most Turkeys are measured by the kilogram. Timing should
be calculated in either of these ways:
40 minutes per 1kg plus 10 minutes per 1/4 kg.
20 minutes per 1lb, plus 20 minutes.
The m a x i m u m size Turkey for this appliance is: 20lbs
approximately 9kgs.
Please do not attempt to roast a Turkey larger than this, as
the results cannot be guaranteed.

Glass door panels
For your safety, glass door
panels are made of toughened
glass. This ensures that, in
the unlikely event that a panel
breaks, it does so into small
fragments to minimise the risk
of injury.
Please take care when
handling, using or cleaning all
glass panels, as any damage
to the surfaces or edges may
result in the glass breaking
without warning or apparent
cause at a later date.
Should any glass panel be
damaged, we strongly

temperature before putting food in
the oven, and cover the food you
