You are what
you eat
Feuerbach coined this expression when he reviewed a book
on nutrition in 1850. He was of course right. We are what we eat.
Or we will soon become it... It is therefore important that we eat correctly.
For most of us nowadays the main meal of the day is prepared
in a catering kitchen. So it is even more important than ever
that the food served is appetising and nutritious.
We help make sure this is the case with our new Electrolux Cook and Chill
air-o-system. With our precise (patented) humidity control
and air circulation within the cooking chamber it is now even easier.
L. Feuerbach, German philosopher, 1804-72

Cooking cycles
automatic pre-heat function (removable via software)
There are 3 steam cooking modes,
• Low Temperature Steam where you can select from 25 up to 99 °C
• Normal Steam cooking at 100 °C
• Super Heated Steam from 101 up to 130 °C
Steam cycle
25 °C to 130 °C
Steaming is ideal for all foods that can be cooked in water (with exception to
pasta), low temperature steam cooking is perfect for delicate foods, sous – vide
while super heated steam is excellent for frozen vegetables for example.
Electrolux has a unique Humidity Control system called “Lambda Sensor” which
guarantees precise humidity control and when steaming foods this guarantees
100% steam saturation inside the cooking chamber.
This cycle is a combination of Convection and Steam cooking modes
having a maximum temperature of 250 °C. It’s ideal for meat with bone,
example – poultry, ribs, saddle etc. Also stuffed vegetables, lasagne, seafood,
some bakery products and desserts.
Combi cycle
Max. 250 °C
Advantages; Reduced cooking and re –heating times, less food shrinkage
meaning higher yields, perfect baking results and with the aid of the
Lambda Sensor you are able to select the perfect humidity level to give
you the best results.
For Proving Dough’s select Combi and a temperature below 50 °C,
we suggest 33deg, you will see “Fer” in the humidity display which means
“Fermenting” and the Humidity level is automatically controlled by the oven. The
fan also runs at a reduced speed for a gentle environment.
This cycle uses dry hot air with a maximum temperature of 300 °C.
Convection cycle
Max. 300 °C
We have today 3 types of Convection cooking available, the first is with
the oven’s vent in the closed position, the second is with the vent open and
third we use the Lambda Sensor to keep the humidity level at the optimum
for giving perfect cooking results. The Lambda Sensor is measuring
the humidity coming from the food and does not use steam from the boiler.
Convection cooking is ideal for roasting meats, grilling meats on the oven
grid, au gratin, breads, pastries, fresh or frozen convenience products,
baking and browning.
When selecting a temperature of 300 °C we have a time limit of 10 minutes
after which the oven will automatically reduce the temperature to 280 °C.

Useful tips for cooking
with air-o-steam ®
When the appliance is energised (turned on) the digital display will do a self
“lamp” test where by all the display panel will illuminate for a few seconds.
Control panel has very bold illuminated digital display which can be easily read
from up to 11 metres away.
At the end of a cooking cycle “END” appears and flashes to let the operator
know the cooking cycle has ended, This is very important in a busy noisy
kitchen as quite often the operator does not hear the end of cycle alarm and
foods can be over cooked.
Cooking modes are simple to select and feature the following:
Note; Every time a cooking mode is selected, temperature set and either a
cooking time or core temperature target set, when you press the start/stop
button the oven will automatically Pre Heat. If the temperature you have
selected is 130 °C or less the oven will heat up to that set point.
If the temperature you have selected is higher than 130 °C then the oven will
automatically pre heat 20 °C higher to help compensate for the heat loss when
door is opened to load with product.
Note; when oven is not used for some minutes the lights will turn off to save
energy.
Steam mode, When you press this button the temperature display will show
100 °C which is the default setting, If you want either “Low” or “Super heated”
steam then press the temperature button and select any temperature between
25 up to 130 °C.
Combi mode, ( combination of Steam and Convection – dry hot air ). When
you select this cooking mode you will see in the coloured bar the number
50, this is the pre set Humidity level. If you want a different % of humidity
simply push the combi button a second time and using the main control dial
select the level you desire while the number is flashing.
The Humidity level is controlled by a Lambda sensor – Unique to
Electrolux! measuring the REAL humidity within the cooking chamber.
Whether cooking a single portion or full load you are able to control
the level of humidity you desire.
1.
Convection mode – 3 choices.
When selecting convection mode the cycle will operate with “vent closed”
trapping the humidity coming from the food being cooked inside the oven.
This can create some problems regarding “browning” as too much humidity
will make browning – meats in particular – difficult.
electrolux user guide
air-o-steam ®
2.
Press the convection mode button a second time and you can now select
(using the main control knob) the level of humidity you desire. This is
controlled by a second “inlet vent”. So that when the level of humidity you
have selected is reached (this humidity being “relative humidity”), it is displayed
in blue on the coloured bar together with red (indicating the percentage of
humidity and dry air visually).
The vent will automatically open and being positioned within the circumference
of the oven fan where a negative force (vacuum) is generated, it will allow fresh
air from the kitchen to be drawn into the oven chamber.
This “fresh” air is then blown through the heating elements into the cooking
chamber, which has no detrimental effect on the product you are cooking
(as the air is pre – heated) and which will then force the humidified air out
of the second vent.
3.
Once the level of humidity has been stabilised the vents automatically
close again.
Third choice of Convection cooking is with oven vent open fully during
cooking, this is achieved by entering “advanced functions” and selecting the
open vent symbol which allows a continuous release of humidity from the
oven chamber.
Every time you select a cooking cycle either manually or from the program
library, the oven will automatically “pre-heat” to ensure the correct temperature
is reached prior to loading. If you select a temperature up to 130 °C the
cooking chamber will pre-heat up to that temperature. If you select
a temperature above 130 °C the oven will automatically pre-heat 20 °C higher
to compensate temperature loss when door is opened to load product.
When oven is ready, it will beep and display “LOAD” on the control panel.
After loading the product into the oven, close the door and press the
START
STOP
button to activate the cooking cycle. If you forget this step the oven will
remain on pre-heating and timer will not be activated.
The oven has 100 free spaces for operators to store cooking programs.
P
Plus 4 pre – heating cycles, “baking – roasting – steaming & banquet”
Plus 4 cleaning cycles – soft – medium – strong & extra strong. When
the cleaning cycle has ended and the oven is not touched for two
minutes it will automatically turn itself onto “Standby mode”. All you
will see on the display is “Stby” which means Standby. The only
electrical energy being used is for the LCD screen.
The next time someone touches the oven it will start automatically.
Plus 21 memorised cooking cycles which start with the letter “F” to
denote they are factory set cooking cycles.

The Pause mode can be utilised in several functions
A.
To delay the starting of the appliance (remember that you have 6 phases each
with up to 8 hours of controlled time) so in theory you could use 5 phases,
giving 5 x 8 which = 40 hrs of pause mode (which means only the timer is
operating, no power to elements or fan) then the 6th phase could be used to
pre –heat the oven ready for use.
B.
To give a “rest period” within a cooking cycle, for example if cooking a large
Turkey you may select to start the cooking cycle with convection at a higher
than normal cooking temperature to “adhere” the spices to the skin. Then you
may wish to allow the oven temperature to fall slowly so the second phase
could be a pause mode for 10 minutes. The third phase could then be a
combi cycle which then introduces steam into the oven chamber etc.
C.
As a Safety feature at the end of cooking cycles, important when appliances
are installed in “Chain operations” where unskilled young adults are working.
This allows the cooking time for example, Muffins which may take 18 minutes,
the 1st cooking phase would be set at 16 minutes and the second phase
would be a pause mode set at 2 minutes.
At the second phase the oven heating elements and fan turn off, as the fan
takes approx. 1 1/2 minutes to stop rotating it is still circulating hot air around
the food being cooked thus not affecting the final result.
When the timer goes off and the audible alarm sounds indicating cycle has
ended, when the operator opens the oven door there is no rush of hot air
being blown out as the fan has already stopped.

ECO - Delta Cooking
It is a unique method of controlling the oven chamber temperature in
conjunction with the core temperature of the food. The operator is able
to select a “delta” value between 1 °C < 120 °C, we recommend using
between 20 °C < 70 °C
An example of Linear ECO - Delta Cooking
This type of cooking is ideally suited to large joints of meat and the way to
use it is to select the cooking mode, e.g. Combi. Then select a core
temperature value, then go into functions and select ECO - Delta. At this
point you will see on the oven temperature display “20 °C” which is a “delta”
value you may select. Using the dial knob select the “delta” value you wish,
for example 40 °C.
Close the oven door and press the start button to activate the cooking cycle
(if you wish you could also put in the second phase of a pause mode for
2 minutes, this would start when the core temperature you selected had been
reached).
The core temperature of the meat may be for example 14 °C when the
cooking cycle has started, the oven temperature will then go to approx. 54
°C, which is 40 °C above the core temperature. As the core temperature
of the meat rises by one degree so too does the oven temperature, with the
difference being maintained at 40 °C which is the “delta” value you selected.
If you selected a final core temperature of say 68 °C then the oven chamber
temperature would be 108 °C at the end of the cooking cycle.
This cooking method is much slower than the “normal” way of cooking but
the benefits are higher yields which translate to bigger profits!
Note For a more detailed explanation of ECO - Delta cooking refer
to page 36.

The air-o-steam® display always shows the:
“Selected Temperature” and the “Actual Temperature”
“Selected Time” and the “Time Remaining”
“Selected Core Temperature” and the “Actual Core Temperature”
This is to let the operator know (and supervisors) what has been selected for
various cooking cycles, should an operator select the wrong choice then it’s
easier for another person to see this and correct it.
During a cooking cycle, if the operator/supervisor sees that a wrong
temperature, time, cooking mode etc has been selected, to correct it they
simply press the correct button and hold for a few seconds which will then
prompt the display to “flash”.
At this point the correct input can be made then the oven will memorise this
and change the cycle accordingly, without having to stop and restart the cycle.
After 2 hours of steam operation, the air-o-steam® memory will send a
command to release the water from the steam generator. This will only
happen when the water temperature inside the boiler drops to 50 °C or below,
normally the next time the oven’s main power is turned on.
At the end of any of the 4 Cleaning cycles the oven will automatically go on
“stand-by” mode which turns power off to the steam generator elements,
shuts off the oven lights so the only energy consumption is on the led display.
This allows the operator to start a cleaning cycle then go home.

air-o-steam® Combi Oven
Has reached for the future with a precise control of both humidity
and air circulation within the cooking chamber
Even while cooking with Convection (Dry) forced air you can select a humidity
level for optimum results.
With a new airflow system and a larger oven cavity uneven cooking is a thing
of the past.
The following is a brief explanation of the various cooking modes available and
how to best use them for optimum results.
Humidity and Cooking
Having the option now to be able to select a “humidity” level while using
either the Combi or Convection cooking modes enables (with practice)
the Chef/operator to fine tune the cooking procedure to optimise results.
You must realise that food is a delicate product and ALL food consists
mostly of moisture, for example meats are at least 88% water,
vegetables even higher.
With the two different cooking modes you have two different humidity factors
to take into consideration, firstly with Convection cooking you are able
to select (by pressing the Convection mode button twice) a humidity level
you don’t wish to exceed. This humidity you will find present in the oven
chamber once the food starts heating up and cooking is coming ONLY
from the food itself.
This is very noticeable when cooking, for example, a full load of beef rissoles,
as with the amount of moisture coming out from the product you can get in
excess of 90% humidity, this then makes “browning” very difficult.
With the Electrolux patented Humidity control system you can select as
an example 30% humidity and when the ACTUAL humidity level approaches
30% the oven will automatically discharge humidity into the airspace above
the oven.
When cooking with the Combi cycle the humidity level is normally set
at 50%, this humidity is coming from the steam generator and introduced
to the cooking chamber via a vent pipe.
Now you have the possibility to also select a desired humidity level which will
be controlled by the oven through the patented Humidity control system
using a “lambda” sensor so when cooking for example ribs (mostly bone with
little meat) you need a higher humidity level than if you were cooking a large
roast beef. The reason is you must help the ribs retain as much moisture as
possible to get a nice juicy meat.

Convection
Dry Hot air cycle
With oven ventilation closed
With a maximum available temperature of 300 °C, this cycle is mainly used
for baking products such as bread, pastries, cakes, biscuits, pies, flans,
strudels etc.
Quick grilling of meats (steaks, cutlets, rissoles, burgers etc.)
As with all cooking modes it is very important to pre-heat the oven prior
to placing the food inside, generally pre-heat the oven to 30-50 °C abovethe
desired cooking temperature.
When grilling steaks at 250-270 °C pre-heat the air-o-steam® to 300 °C
for at least 10 minutes first.
With oven ventilation closed
This is activated by selecting open ventilation from the Advanced functions.
Again on this cycle a maximum temperature of 300 °C is attainable - for
a maximum time of 10 minutes.
This cycle is used for cooking for example puff pastry sheets for custard slice,
browning and crisping skin on poultry, pork etc.
Cooking full loads of meat rissoles, which as they heat up produce excessive
humidity levels, the open vent allows excessive humidity to escape.
electrolux user guide
air-o-steam ®
Convection cooking
Cooking with the Electrolux patented air-o-clima Humidity level control
(activated by pressing the convection mode selection button twice)
This cycle lets you program a maximum humidity level to be obtained
within the cooking chamber. This is a necessity, as during cooking all types
of food when it starts heating up, moisture from within the food escapes
creating humidity inside the oven.
This is evident when opening the door and observing the steam rise into
the kitchen.
When cooking full load of, for example, chicken or meat rissoles, the amount
of humidity within the cooking chamber (vent closed) can reach in excess
of 95%!
Electrolux has overcome this problem thanks to its patented air-o-clima
humidity control system! Just select the humidity level you desire and leave
the rest up to the Electrolux air-o-steam® Combi Oven.

electrolux user guide
air-o-steam ®
Combi Cooking mode
Combination of convection and steam cooking.
In this cooking mode the maximum attainable temperature is 250 °C
This cycle is best used for cooking all types of meat on the bone including
seafood and for the regeneration of pre-cooked foods.
When cooking meats (and remember the water content in most meats
exceeds 88%) the steam is assisting heat transfer into the food mass thus
accelerating the cooking process.
Steam is ideal for cooking these foods, but the maximum temperature being
only 100 °C it is impossible to obtain the desired browning (caused by the
caramelisation of meat juices).
With the Combination cooking mode a temperature of 250 °C can be
obtained, because the cavity is heated (either by electric elements or gas
heated tubes). It is therefore possible to obtain the desired browning effect.
Using the Electrolux patented air-o-clima humidity control system
The patented air-o-clima humidity control system is the only system that
determines the real humidity level inside the cavity of the oven, through direct
measurement using a Lambda sensor.
This system allows for real humidity control through injection of steam only
when necessary, and the aspiration into the cavity of dry air when humidity
level inside the cavity is in excess of the desired level for optimum cooking
results.
All you need to do is select the desired humidity level by twice pressing the
combi mode selection button, then using the main control dial to select
humidity %.
The air-o-clima will automatically keep the humidity, temperature and clima
inside the cavity at the ideal levels.
electrolux user guide
air-o-steam ®
Steam cycle
Steam cycle-maximum temperature 100 °C
This cycle is used for a wide variety of cooking needs, most foods traditionally
boiled in a pot can be cooked on this cycle, the benefits include reduced
cooking times, better quality, retention of nutrients, vitamins, colour and most
importantly flavour.
Remember to use perforated cooking pans to allow the distribution of fan
forced steam around the product and not to overload the pans with food.
For optimum results 65 mm pans should be the deepest used.
Perforated pans also allow the condensation to escape so the product is not
sitting in water.
The Electrolux air-o-steam® level ‘A’ Combi oven guarantees 100% Steam
Saturation inside the cooking chamber regardless of the temperature selected.
This is controlled using the LAMBDA Sensor-Unique to Electrolux.
Super heated steam-maximum temperature 130 °C
To select “Super Heated Steam” press the steam button, now press the
temperature button and use main control dial to select a steaming temperature
between 101 °C up to 130 °C.
Low temperature steam cycle
With a temperature range from 25 to 100 °C, the Steam cooking mode is also
ideal for cooking delicate foods such as small fish fillets, scallops, scampi,
chicken breast, sausages, sous-vide, leafy vegetables, light egg custards etc.
Full or half Energy Power and/or Fan Speed
1
1
2
2
It is not always the case that the Chefs or operators are cooking large
quantities of food, thus when loading up to 40% of the ovens capacity you
have the option of selecting either half energy (power) and/or half fan speed to
reduce operating costs.
Another benefit is when cooking very delicate items such as soufflé or
meringues, you can select low fan speed to prevent “pulling” foods into the
direction of fan.
27
28
electrolux user guide
air-o-steam ®
Super steam cycle
Super Steam is using the assistance of the air-o-steam® heating elements to
boost the chamber temperature (also possible in gas heated models) thus
speeding up the cooking process of more robust foods such as Potatoes,
Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkin, Rice, some meats etc.
Super Heated Steam is ideal for cooking frozen vegetables for example, as
the temperature recovery is much faster due to the assistance of the oven
heating system.
Note that this cycle should never be used for cooking green vegetables as
the high temperature will spoil the foods natural colour, texture and taste.

And there’s More!!!
Other options include the following
Sequential cooking
This is a method of using two or more styles of cooking for the same food
for example roast loin of pork:
The first step is to steam the pork as this keeps it moist and finally finishing
with a Combi cycle, then using a convection cycle with vent open to
crispen skin.
Cook step 1 (or phase 1)
After pre-heating the oven (on Combi cycle to 110 °C), place the pork which
has been put on a wire grid over a roasting pan into the oven.
Insert the core temperature probe, select steam cycle at 100 °C, select a core
temperature of 65 °C then go to cook step 2.
Cook step 2 (or phase 2)
Select Combi cycle with a humidity level of 40%, set oven temperature
at 190 °C with a core temperature set at 72 °C, then go to cook step 3.
Cook step 3 (or phase 3)
Select convection cycle with ventilation open and set oven temperature at
260 °C and core temperature at 76 °C, now press the start button to start
cooking cycle, commencing with cook step 1 and finishing with cook step 3.
Tip: Scoring the pork skin with a knife every 1 cm and rubbing it with salt over
the surface will assist in achieving crisp skin.

L.T.C. Low Temperature
Cooking in AOS
Low Temperature Cooking has been developed over a period of time with vast testing in our own laboratory and in
conjunction with the University of Udine Italy. Using this method guarantees optimum yields every time from all types
of meat that would be otherwise roasted in the “traditional” way.
Another factor determining yields is whether or not the meat has been “manipulated” meaning if it has been
“boned out” stuffed with a filling, rolled and tied as you would with a shoulder joint or loin for example.
If the meat being cooked is a single piece meaning a leg with bone in, prime beef rib on the bone then the yields
are higher due to the meat not being cut open to remove the bone which increases the surface area being
exposed to heat during cooking.
Another tip is NOT to use any salt on the meat prior to cooking as all this does is “draw out” water from the meat which
can result in up to an additional 7% weight loss !! and has NO effect on the meats taste.
Season the meat AFTER it has been cooked.

In the Electrolux AOS – air o steam oven you will find
the LTC program in the library, press the P button
and turn main control dial to find Low Temperature
Cooking. Press the start / stop button to activate the
cycle which will go through a sequence as described
below; Another tip is to hang the 6 point multi sensor
probe out over the top of oven door during the
preheating phase so it’s not hot to handle later.
• First the oven will preheat, indicated by “Preh”
on the led screen where the temperature display
is normally. The factory default temperature for the
preheating phase is 140 °C, if you prefer you can
press the temp button and using the main control
dial select a higher temperature. All this will do is
increase the browning of the meat during the initial
cooking phase.
Prepare the meat by placing it on a wire grid ( not in
a roasting pan ) and rub with herbs, mustard etc to
your desire.

• When oven has preheated it will Beep and you will
see “Load” appear, open the door with caution and
place the meat inside on the rack, place an empty
gastronorm container below on the next runner to
capture any fat melting off the meat. Insert the probe
( if cooking pork with skin on make a small hole with
a sharp knife to enable easy penetration of the probe
shaft ) then select a target core temperature.
• Close oven door, now you will see “strt” on
the display, press the start / stop button again
to continue the cycle, Now the oven goes into a
“Searing” phase which lasts approx 10 minutes at
the same temperature used for pre heating, this is to
“Seal” the meat, kill surface bacteria and to brown
the outer surface of the meat.
• After the “Searing” phase has finished then the oven goes into “Rapid Cool Down” and will stop when the oven
temperature has fallen to approx 20 °C Above the target core temperature you have selected. So if your target is 60 °C
then the oven will cool down to 80 °C.
• Now the “Maturing” phase ( low temp cooking ) starts, the fan in the oven cycles on & off with half speed to create a
gentle airflow around the meat, as the core temperature of the meat rises the oven temperature will slowly keep falling.
• When the target core temperature has been reached the temperature inside the oven will be 5 °C above your target core
temp. The oven then switches off until the oven temp falls to the same as your target core temp.
• Now the “Hold” phase starts, this is a gentle cycle where the fan turns on approx 2 seconds every 2 minutes at half
speed.
Every 40 minutes the oven will do a total air exchange for 1 minute to prevent bad odors building up.
• The LTC cycle has a recommended maximum time frame of 24 hours, from when the meat is first placed in the oven
to when they should be taken out. With “red” meats for every 1 hour in the Holding phase it equates to approx 2 days
“hanging” so it becomes even more tender.

Cooking with the Electrolux 6-Point Multi Sensor Probe
The 6-Point multi sensor probe is like having an expert watching over your
food while it is being cooked or regenerated.
All the guesswork has been eliminated and now your food will always be
cooked to perfection.
The Electrolux 6-Point multi sensor Probe has 6 sensors for more precise
measurement of temperature. Of the six temperature measurements taken,
only the lowest is taken into consideration. This guarantees that even if the
core probe is not perfectly positioned within the food product, perfect cooking
results are achieved, under perfectly safe cooking conditions.

The following is a guide to core temperatures for achieving best cooking
results in various foods (pg 30 and 31).

Continuous operation “cont”
This cycle is preferred during a meal service period which may run for
2-3 hours for example. You can choose a cooking mode and oven
temperature, for example, combi cycle at 30% humidity with an oven
temperature of 155 °C, then instead of selecting a time value (or core
temperature value) the continuous mode is selected.
Then press the start button to activate the continuous cycle, the air-o-steam®
will run continuously until it is stopped.
Continuous cycle also runs when using the “Holding phase”.

Cook and Hold
HOLD
The cook and hold method was developed hundreds years ago (in the days
before the modern oven) when tribesmen would dig a hole in the ground and
make a big fire heating river stones. When the flames died down they would
cover the hot stones with large leaves, lay large pieces of meat over the
leaves, cover the meat with more leaves then bury (cover with a layer of 1/2
meter soil) the lot.
This was left to slow “Cook and Hold” for the entire day, to be dug up and
consumed in the early evening (after the sun had gone down) with the result
being a tender and juicy piece of meat with little shrinkage.
Now you can duplicate this (without filling the oven with soil) by selecting the
first cooking phase, oven and core temperature value, then proceeding to
phase 2 and choosing the “Hold” function.
Now you select a holding temperature, remember that this is the temperature
inside the oven cavity. Once the desired core temperature (and remember to
set the core temperature value approx. 5 °C lower than if you were going to
cook and remove the product without Holding) value has been reached the
oven will switch from a Cooking cycle to a Holding cycle and remain so until
you stop the cycle and remove the product.
This method of cooking is best suited for large joints of meat in excess
of 8 kg, for example Roast Beef.
Cook step 1 (or phase 1)
Select Combi cooking mode at 40% humidity, oven temperature at 120 °C
and core temperature at 55 °C with the 6-Point multi sensor probe inserted.
Then select 1/2 energy and 1/2 fan speed, then go to second cook step.
Cook step 2 (or phase 2)
U
Using the Program control set, select with the main control knob from
the menu “Add hold”. Now select the oven holding temperature of 60 °C,
then press the Start Button to activate cycle. The Cook and Hold cycle is
now in operation.

Special ECO - Delta
ECO - Delta cooking is a special cooking process ensuring high quality
results in all types of large joints for roasting. The process guarantees a
constant difference (“delta”) between the core temperature of the food to be
cooked and the temperature inside the oven cavity.
This “delta” cooking cavity temperature value can be set (we recommend)
anywhere in the range of 30-70 °C (Convection cycle) or 20-50 °C
(Combi cycle) higher than the core temperature value and increases
proportionally with it. The full range of temperature can be set between
1 °C up to 120 °C.
Advantages:
• Extremely low energy and water consumption
• Excellent quality and minimum shrinkage
• Cooking can be shifted to quiet periods or night-time
• Higher quality through gentle cooking process
• There are two types of ECO - Delta cooking; “Linear” and “Progressive”
• Linear this is when the temperature difference between the core product and
oven cavity remain constant.
• Progressive This is when the temperature difference between the core
product and oven cavity closes towards the end of the cooking process. e.g.
• Start of cycle
core temperature is +12 °C “delta” 35 °C - oven temperature will be 47 °C
core temperature is +35 °C “delta” 35 °C - oven temperature will be 70 °C
core temperature is +55 °C “delta” 20 °C - oven temperature will be 75 °C
core temperature is +58 °C “delta” 10 °C - oven temperature will be 68 °C
core temperature is +60 °C “delta” 5 °C - oven temperature will be 65 °C

per bird of approx. 1.3 kg weight.
• 30 gm finely chopped onion
• 150 gm sliced white bread cut into 1cm square pieces without the crust,
lay the sliced bread out individually on the bench to let it dry
a little - this makes it easier to cut.
• 100 gm chicken livers - cleaned and sliced.
• 1/4 teaspoon dry thyme
• 1/4 teaspoon dry sage
• 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon fine grain salt
• 1/2 bay leaf broken into pieces
• 2 teaspoons fresh chopped parsley
• 75 gm salted butter
• 100 ml milk
Method
Melt butter in sauté pan over medium heat, add onion and cook without
colour, stir with wooden spoon until onion is “transparent”.
Add chicken livers and cook until lightly browned but not cooked all the
way through then add all the herbs, salt, pepper and bread. Mix together
then lastly add the milk. Allow to cool so it’s easier to handle. The stuffing
can be made in advance and kept after in an air – tight container in the
refrigerator for 3 days prior to using.

Cruise function
The “Cruise” cycle controls automatically the chilling process.
It tries to terminate the process within the normative limits and preserves
the food quality. Simply insert the core temperature probe into the hot food,
close the door and press the CRUISE button.
It works by first starting in a “soft” chill mode where the working air
temperature inside the blast chiller is -2 °C.
When the air temperature reaches 0°C the AOC reads the food temperature,
if the food has not started to chill then the working air temperature target will
be automatically set at -11 °C ( Medium Chill ).
When the air temperature falls to -9 °C the food temp is measured again and
if it has still not started to chill then automatically it will change to a Hard Chill
cycle with the air temp set at -22 °C.
Turbo Cooling
The “Turbo Cooling” cycle allows the user to set a working temperature
between -36 and +3 °C. The Chiller works to keep the set temperature,
the impellers stay on always and the defrosting is automatically managed
To set the cycle press the “M” button and the symbol will light up, now press

Useful tips for Blast Chilling
With the new Electrolux air-o-chill® Blast chiller/freezer it is not necessary
to pre-chill appliance prior to loading and starting of cycle for most products.
Very small items may require air-o-chill® to be turned on approx.
5 minutes prior to loading. This enables the “Prep” cycle to run then
the chilling process will start.
Remember to always have the plug in place – in the drain outlet inside cavity.
Check the pull out plastic tray under the appliance prior to using each
day – tip out any water and clean with detergent and replace.
The drain outlet can also be connected using a hose to a floor drain for
convenience.
electrolux user guide
air-o-chill ®
Soft Chilling
Remember the air temperature inside the cavity will be minus 2 °C
Soft Chilling - cycle is for delicate foods e.g.
•
•
•
•
•
•
vegetables grown above the ground
seafood
small portions of meat e.g. chicken breast fillet, ribs
egg custard
pastries, small cakes, biscuits
pasta
Remember that the maximum depth pan to use is 2 1/2” (65 mm) and a gap
of at least 1-1 1/2” (20-30 mm) must be allowed between the top of one
pan and the bottom of the pan above, to allow sufficient cold air to circulate
around the pans.
Always supervise the chilling process; most foods don’t require the full time of
cycle to chill down ready for transferring to a holding chiller or cold room.
Follow these guides for good results:
Pasta and similar foods
Firstly cook the pasta to “just done” (slightly under-cooked), remove from
cooking vessel and drain well – do not rinse with cold water as this will remove
most of the flavour.
Have ready the required number of 2 1/2” (65 mm) deep stainless steel pans
(not plastic as it is a poor conductor of heat and cold), and splash a little good
quality olive oil in base of pans.
Pour in the hot pasta – sprinkle a little more olive oil over and give it a stir prior
to loading into air-o-chill®.
During the blast chilling cycle, stir the pasta approx. every 5 minutes, touch
underside of pan and when cold, the pasta is ready to transfer to normal
chiller or walk-in cool room. Always cover with a lid or plastic wrap when
transferring to storage.
Don’t allow pasta to remain into air-o-chill® for too long as it will freeze and
thus be of poor quality.
81
82
electrolux user guide
air-o-chill ®
Vegetables
After cooking vegetables, e.g. in a steamer – remember to cook to “just
cooked” stage as they will still cook slightly more until they have started to chill
– if you normally cook beans for 6 minutes, reduce the cooking time
by 2 minutes as the time taken to remove from steamer and place into the
air-o-chill® will equate to having allowed the full 6 minutes of cooking time.
Seafood
If cooking fillets of fish, try to only cook until the core temperature inside
the fish reads approx. 72 °C as the flesh will continue cooking after taking
out of oven.
It is not necessary to cover the fish when placing inside the air-o-chill® – this
applies to nearly all food, as covering will only lengthen the chilling process.
This is due to the cold air not coming into direct contact with the food.
Never stack fillets (cooked) on top of each other, it is best to use extra pans
which will also speed up the chilling process – again watch them – don’t allow
to freeze. If the fillets are thick enough insert the probe into one of them.
electrolux user guide
air-o-chill ®
Hard Chilling
Remember that the air temperature inside the cavity will be approx. minus 20 °C
Hard Chilling - This cycle is used for more solid or firm foods e.g.
• vegetables grown below the ground
• soups
• stocks and sauces
• stews and casseroles
• whole joints of meat and poultry – don’t put in joints larger than approx.
4-5 kg as it is difficult for the cold air to penetrate into centre unless it is
long strip like loin etc.
When chilling liquid based products, use the 2 1/2” (65 mm) deep s/steel pans
and fill to 3/4 for ease of handling when hot.
For optimum results use the 2” (40 mm) deep pans. Allow a space between
each pan of approx. 1-1 1/2” (25/30 mm) for chilled air circulation.
Some foods, e.g. stews, curry etc. are chilled faster if during the chilling cycle
they are gently stirred to blend in the cold food around edge of pan.
Using the core temperature probe. Try to use the core temperature probe
as this will monitor the internal temperature of the food being chilled.
When the hot food has been placed inside the air-o-chill®, insert the probe
before starting the cycle.
The air-o-chill® will know when the probe is being used due to the difference
in temperature between the probe and internal-cavity-temperature sensor.
When the probe is being used the display will show the internal temperature
of the food and when it has chilled to approx. 3 °C the chilling cycle will end.
After the cycle has ended the air-o-chill® will automatically start a defrost cycle,
then go to “holding temperature” of 3 °C.
After the defrosting cycle has ended the air-o-chill® will operate as a normal
chiller at 3 °C, e.g. if you load it with cooked product at end of day, the
appliance will hold the food at 3 °C until operator removes it next morning.
When finished with air-o-chill® always clean cavity with a soft cloth and mild
soapy water, rinse clean and sterilize using a wet cloth and white vinegar or an
approved anti-bacterial cleaner.
Leave door ajar (slightly open) using either the plug or a clean, unused piece
of sponge foam as a spacer. Remember to empty and wash drip pan under
appliance.

Storage of food after Blast chilling
Remember to always cover food with a lid or plastic wrap to prevent drying and
odour transfer to other products in chiller
Sauce based foods, curry pastes etc. can be measured into vacuum bags
(after initial Blast chilling) then vacuum-sealed which will give a longer
shelf life – up to 35 days – depending on product.
If you require a longer shelf life, vacuum packed sauces, stocks, pastas,
casseroles etc. can be blast frozen (if you have a Blast Freezer). However if
the food is packaged in such a way that the shape of bag is like a “flat pillow”,
they can also be frozen if placed on wire grids (shelves) inside the air-o-chill®
which is set on Hard Cycle.
Lay the flat bags directly onto the cold racks (shelves) without overlapping the
bags, then let the air-o-chill® run for the complete Hard Cycle time duration.
The product will be frozen at end of cycle.
Remember to remove them once cycle has ended and transfer to a freezer
room or upright freezer; they can be held in baskets. Always label the
bags with production date/product name/volume and expiry date for future
reference.
Note to conform to most health requirements, the shelf life of products
mentioned above needs to be validated by a qualified food technologist.
This is due to ingredients used, method of preparation, handling and
cooking methods.

Regenerating chilled cooked food
It is important to regenerate/reheat pre-cooked chilled food to a safe serving
temperature. Some countries have laws governing this so be sure to check
with local health authorities.
Operation 1
U
R
Press the advanced functions button and using the main control dial
select the regeneration cycle then press the cooking advanced mode
button again to confirm.
The symbol will be orange in colour.

Operation 2
Once you confirm you will see a number displayed below the coloured bar using
the main control dial while the number is flashing, select the humidity level you
wish to use.
For example if you wish to regenerate cooked/chilled chicken breast filled with a
light herb stuffing, select 40 % humidity.
Operation 3
Now select the internal chamber temperature (remember to pre heat to
160 °C) ranging between 120 °C up to 140 °C by pressing the actual
temperature button and using main control dial to select the desired
temperature.
Operation 4
When regenerating it is better to use the 6 point multi sensor probe to
guarantee the correct serving temperature has been reached.
Press the cook time/core temperature button which selects both cooking
time or core temperature.
START
STOP
Now use the main control dial to select “core temperature” and insert the
probe into the chicken breast, close oven door and press the start/stop
button to activate cycle.

Blast freezing
air-o-chill®/freezer
The air temperature inside the blast freezer reaches minus 35 °C and at the
end of the cycle holds product at minus 22 °C.
Product can be blast frozen either in vacuum bags, suitable sturdy plastic
containers that are no more than 40 mm deep and Gastronorm pans with
a maximum depth of 40 mm.
For optimum results when blast freezing liquid based products it is better to
first blast chill on hard cycle then place into suitable sized containers for blast
freezing.
Once product is frozen, cover with a tight fitting lid or place in airtight
container/vacuum bag to prevent dehydration in freezer.
Remember that when freezing product in vacuum sealed bags, be sure to
press flat to increase surface area which speeds up the freezing process.
If freezing small items such as vegetables, prawn cutlets, meat balls etc place
them on flat trays so they are not touching each other, once frozen they can
then be placed loose into sealed bags as “free flow”.

Positive Holding, temperature range between 0 °C up to +10 °C
Blast freezing, temperature range between -18 °C down to -35 °C
Freeze Holding, temperature range between -2 °C down to -25 °C
Note The reason for being able to customise the time of cycle and cavity air
temperature is to allow total flexibility for the operator.
e.g.
Chilling 80 gm fillets of fish requires only 4 – 9 minutes depending on the
thickness of fillet, if you allow the cycle to run for it’s duration of 110 minutes
the fish will be frozen.
Use soft cycle for thin fillets and hard cycle for thick fillets with a temperature
of –12 °C and time of cycle to between 4 – 9 minutes. Once cycle has ended
the air o chill reverts to a holding chiller at +3 °C.

Fresh food directly from the freezer!
The Electrolux air-o-defrost uses a unique method of combining Low
Temperature Steam and high velocity air circulation to thaw frozen products.
The “target” thawed temperature can be set between –1 °C up to +2 °C in
increments of 1/10th of a degree.
When thawing meat for slicing it is best to thaw to -1 °C as this will facilitate
slicing as the meat will still be firm and hold it’s shape when slicing.
electrolux user guide
After turning on air-o-defrost
To defrost frozen products you simply place them into the perforated
containers, make a small hole in the product using the supplied “hand drill”
insert the core temperature probe, close the door, set target temperature and
leave the rest to air-o-defrost.
The thawing process involves the sensor in the probe monitoring the
product temperature, when it registers a big difference between the cabinet
temperature and core temperature the thawing process is activated.
The temperature inside the cabinet will increase via the steam generator in
steps up to +15 °C. first +7, then +10, +12 and finally +15 °C where it will
stabilise.
During the thawing mode the internal fan is on high speed with a constant
input of steam, which as it comes into contact with the frozen food
condensates back to water thus ensuring the food surface is always
very moist.
Note that the surface temperature of the food never exceeds +5 °C, this is
due to the physics of the reaction of the coldness coming from within the food
mass and passing through the foods surface. The opposite happens when
cooking food in that the temperature from the cooking appliance is penetrating
through the surface into the food mass.
Once the temperature of the food has reached 3 °C from your target
temperature then the refrigeration cycle will start and pull down the cabinet
temperature to +7 °C and stay at this temperature until the target temperature
has been reached and stabilised for 5 minutes.
The air-o-defrost cabinet will now pull down to +3 °C, the steam input will stop
and the fan speed reduce to a gentle air flow.
At approx. 40 minutes intervals the steam will input for a few seconds, this is
to keep the food product in a very moist environment.
95

electrolux user guide
Capacity
The model 180 has a recommended maximum load of 35 – 40 kg
(77 – 88 lbs) and the thawing process only uses steam.
The model 1200 has a recommended maximum capacity of 150 – 200 kg
(330 – 440 lbs) and the thawing process uses both steam and heating
elements to raise the cabinet temperature to +15 °C.
Cleaning
After use clean the inside (after first removing the side support racks and rear
perforated cover) with mild detergent and warm water, rinse out then turn the
control dial to the “brush” symbol.
This will activate the steam cycle and take the cabinet temperature up to
approx. 85 °C and hold for 5 minutes. This is to sterilise the cabinet.

How to use
The following pages (132 and 133):
“Cooking cycle chart” and “Cook/ Chill/ Regeneration chart” are for you to
record your personal cooking programs.
Please use these pages as a “master copy” and keep blank!
Photocopy them as required to record your own data, which you can keep
near the air-o-system appliances for a quick reference.
This will make retrieval of pre-programmed cycles much easier to find and
enable you to collect over time a comprehensive file.
