USE OF APPLIANCE
Before the First Use of the Oven
Before the first use ensure that the
room is well ventilated by V.M.C.
(Mechanic ventilation) or an opened
window.
Remove all packaging, both inside and
outside the oven, before using the
oven.
Before first use, the oven should be heated
without food. During this time, an unpleasant
odour may be emitted. This is quite normal.
1. Remove the oven accessories.
2. Remove any adhesive labels or protective
films, if there are any.
3. Heat the oven the corresponding knob on
position “250” for about 45 min.
This procedure should be repeated with the grill
function for approximately 5-10 minutes.
Clean the accessories with a soft detergent.
Rinse and dry carefully.
Rating Plate
The model number of your cooker can be found
on the rating plate on the lower front frame of
the cooker upon opening the door.
The cooker must be protected by a suitably
rated fuse or circuit breaker. The rating of the
cooker is given on the rating plate.
About condensation and steam
When food is heated it produces steam in the
same way as a boiling kettle. The oven vents
allow some of this steam to escape. However,
always stand back from the oven when
opening the oven door to allow any build up of
steam or heat to release.
If the steam comes into contact with a cool
surface on the outside of the oven, e.g. a trim, it
will condense and produce water droplets. This
is quite normal and is not a fault with the oven.
To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away
condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
Cookware
Use any ovenproof cookware,
withstand temperatures of 250°C.
which
will
Oven dishes, etc. should not be placed
directly on the oven base.
During cooking in the oven the oven
door is hot. Take care that children do
not play near it.

Defrost – (NB: This is NOT a cooking
position). This position is intended to assist
in thawing of frozen foods.
Fan cooking – Thermaflow cooking; this
system will allow you to roast and bake at
the same time with very little flavour
transference, and on any shelf.
Grill - The grill cannot be used at the same
time as the oven. The oven door must be
closed when grilling.
Caution
Do not place pans, dripping pans, baking trays or
aluminium foil directly on the base of the oven.
This could cause a heat build-up which could
affect the performance of the oven and damage
the oven enamel.
Thermostat Control Knob
By turning the oven control knob clockwise, you
select the cooking temperature.
The temperatures shown here are on the actual
control knob.
The temperature can be set between 50°C and
250°C according to the dish being cooked.
The maximum setting is particularly suitable for
grilling.
Things to note
• Once the oven temperature has been
selected, the oven thermostat pilot light will
come on and remain on until the oven has
reached the correct setting; after that, it will go
on and off with the thermostat, showing how
the temperature is being maintained.
10
USING THE FAN OVEN
The Fan Oven
The air inside the oven is heated by the element
around the fan situated behind the back panel.
The fan circulates hot air to maintain an even
temperature inside the oven.
The advantages of cooking with this function
are:
Faster Preheating
Because the fan oven quickly reaches
temperature, it is not usually necessary to
preheat the oven although you may find that you
need to allow an extra 5-7 minutes on cooking
times. For recipes, which require higher
temperatures, best results are achieved if the
oven is preheated first, e.g. bread, pastries,
scones, souffles, etc.
Lower Temperatures
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower
temperatures than conventional cooking.
Remember to reduce temperatures by about
20- 25°C for your own recipes, which use
conventional cooking.
Even Heating for Baking
The fan oven has uniform heating on all runner
positions. This means that batches of the same
food can be cooked in the oven at the same
time. However, the top shelf may brown slightly
quicker that the lower one.
This is quite usual. There is no mixing of
flavours between dishes.
The fan oven can be used to heat foods through
without thawing first, e.g. fruit tarts, mince pies,
sausage rolls, and other small pastry items. Use
a temperature of 190-200°C and allow 20-40
minutes (depending on the quantity of food in
the oven).
Only experience will enable you to determine
the correct settings for your personal cooking
needs. The temperatures are intended as a
guide only. It may be necessary to increase or
decrease the temperature to suit your individual
requirements.
The effects of dishes on cooking results
Dishes and tins vary in their thickness,
conductivity, colour, etc. which affects the way
they transmit heat to the food inside them:
A
Aluminium, earthenware, oven glassware
and bright shiny utensils reduce cooking and
base browning.
B
Enamelled cast iron, anodized aluminium,
aluminium with non-stick interior and coloured
exterior and dark, heavy utensils increase
cooking and base browning.
Defrosting
The defrosting function allows you to defrost
frozen foods. The oven fan operates without
heat and circulates the air, at room temperature,
inside the oven. This increases the rate at which
defrosting takes place.
This function is particularly suitable for delicate
food which could be damaged by heat, e.g.
cream filled gateaux, iced cakes, pastries,
bread and other yeast products.
How to Use the Fan Oven
1. Turn the oven function control knob to
2. Turn the thermostat control knob to the
required temperature.
HINTS AND TIPS
Shelf positions are not critical, but make sure
the shelves are evenly spread.
When cooking more than one dish in the fan
oven, place dishes centrally on the shelves
rather than several dishes on one shelf.
When the oven is full, you may need to allow
slightly longer cooking times.
A shelf may be placed on the floor of the oven.
Place dishes on a shelf in this position rather
than on the oven base, to allow air circulation
around the food.
When the oven is full of the same food, e.g.
equal trays of small cakes or equal size victoria
sandwich cakes, then they will be cooked in the
same time and removed from the oven together.
When different sizes of trays or types of food,
e.g. biscuits and cakes are cooked, they will not
necessarily be ready together.
HINTS AND TIPS
• Cover food with a lid, aluminium foil or
plastic film to prevent drying out during
defrosting.
• Small or thin pieces of fish fillet or peeled
prawns, mince, liver and thin chops will
defrost in 1-2 hours. Ensure that they are
cooked or refrigerated immediately after
defrosting to maintain good food hygiene.
• Place the frozen food a single layer where
possible, and turn it over half way through
the defrosting process.
• DO NOT leave food at room temperature once
it is defrosted. Cook raw food immediately or
store cooked food in the fridge.
• Take care to follow the basic rules for
hygiene when handling fresh, frozen, raw
and cooked foods.
Main pilot light
This light will illuminate when the oven function
control knob or any of the hotplate knobs are
turned on and remains lit while these are in
use.

Grilling
Timer (Minute Minder)
When grilling, the accessible parts of the
appliance are hot and the appliance should not
be left unattended. Take care that children do
not play near it. During use the appliance
becomes hot. Care should be taken to avoid
touching heating elements inside the oven.
Turn the control knob clockwise to the maximum
position and than turn it back to the position
corresponding to the period of time necessary
for the cooking.
At the end of the time selected an acoustic
signal sounds which stops automatically. The
timer does not interrupt the operation of the
oven at the end of the set time.
The grill pan will become hot during
use, always use oven gloves when removing
or replacing a hot grill pan, or the grill pan
handles if provided.
All grilling must be carried out with the
oven door closed .
To switch on the grill, turn the oven
function control knob to GRILL, then turn the
thermostat knob to the maximum temperature .
Most foods should be placed on the grid in the
grill pan to allow maximum circulation of air to lift
the food out of the fats and juices. Food such as
fish, liver and kidneys may be placed directly on
the grill pan, if preferred.
Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to
allow for different thicknesses of food.
Food should be thoroughly dried before grilling
to minimise splashing. Brush lean meats and
fish lightly with a little oil or melted butter to keep
them moist during cooking.
Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed underneath the grid
when grilling meats.
When toasting bread, we suggest that the top
runner position is used with the grid in its 'high'
position.
Preheat the grill for a few minutes before sealing
steaks or toasting. Adjust the shelf position as
necessary, during cooking.
The food should be turned over during cooking,
as required.
NOTE: For safety in use, the grill element is
controlled by the thermostat. During cooking,
the grill cycles on and off to prevent
overheating.
Cooking time depends on the thickness of the
meat and not on its weight.
Oven light
The oven is equipped with a lamp. It starts
operating when the oven function control knob
is turned to

ELECTRIC HOTPLATES
To switch on a hotplate, turn the relevant control
knob to the required heat setting.
The control knob is numbered 0 – 6
0 – OFF
1 – Minimum
6 – Maximum.
The hob has two types of hotplates:
Normal Hotplates
We recommend the plates are switched to
maximum (6) for a short while to heat the plate,
and then adjusted to the required setting.
Rapid Hotplate (Front left)
The rapid hotplates indicated by a red spot, will
heat up more quickly than a normal plate.
Over a period of time the red spot may
disappear, this will not affect the performance
of the hotplate.
It is important to note that the hotplate
may smoke and produce a slightly
unpleasant odour when used for the first
time. This is quite normal and will disappear
after some time.
Do not put anything on the hob that is
liable to melt.
Suggestions for the correct setting of the plates

Hints and Tips
Saucepans for use on solid hotplates should have
several characteristics:
• They should be fairly heavy duty.
• They should fit the heat area exactly, or be
slightly larger for efficient use, NEVER smaller.
• They should have a flat base to ensure good
contact with the hotplate. This is particularty
important when using pans for high
temperature frying presure cooking.
As soon as liquid starts boiling, turn the hotplate
control knob so that it will barely keep the liqiud
simmering.
You can switch off the hotplate a short while
before you finish cooking, and the final stage will
be completed using the accumulated heat.
Ensure pans are large enough to avoid
liquids being spilt onto the plates. Never
leave the plates on without a pan on
them or with an empty pan on them.
Take care never to lean or reach over a
hot electric plate. Always point pan
handles inward or over the work surface
next to the hob to avoid accidentally
knocking over a pan as you pass by.
Take care when frying food in hot oil or
fat, as the overheated splashes could
easily ignite.
If the control knobs become difficult to
turn, please contact your local Service
Force Centre.

• To remove the drawer, pull it out to the stop,
then lift it up slowly and pull it out completely.
To replace the drawer follow the same
procedure in reverse.
15
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
The oven should be kept clean at all
times. A build-up of fats or other
foodstuffs could result in a fire.
Before cleaning, ensure all control
knobs are in the OFF position, and the
appliance has cooled completely.
Before any maintenance or cleaning
can be carried out, you must
DISCONNECT the cooker from the
electricity supply.
When cooking is completed and the oven has
cooled down, remove the filter by pushing the
protruding tongue on the filter upward.
Cleaning materials
Before using any cleaning materials on your
oven, check that they are suitable and that their
use is recommended by the manufacturer.
Cleaners that contain bleach should
NOT be used as they may dull the
surface finishes. A steam cleaner is not
to be used. Harsh abrasives should also
be avoided.
External cleaning
In the case of stainless steel parts, you may use
commercially available stainless steel cleaners
with care. These also provide a protective film
against finger marks.

Open the door completely.
Turn the two locking plates on the hinge arms
to 170°;
Partially close the door, to a 30o angle;
Lift the door and pull out.
locking plates
Oven Cavity
The enamelled oven cavity is best cleaned whilst
the oven is still warm.
Wipe the oven over with a soft cloth soaked in
warm soapy water after each use. From time to
time it will be necessary to do a more thorough
cleaning, using a proprietary oven cleaner.
Oven Shelves and shelf support
To clean the oven shelves, and shelf support soak
in warm soapy water and remove stubborn marks
with a well wetted soap impregnated pad. Rinse
well and dry with a soft cloth.
Grease Filter
When cooking meat, the grease filter must be
fitted over the oven fan by clipping it over the
vents in the back panel. This will prevent a builtup of fat on the fan impeller. Do not use abrasive
materials to clean the seal. The grease filter is
dishwasher proof.
16
Refit the door by reversing the operation
described above.
The Hob Top
Restoring
The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still warm, as
spillage can be removed more easily than if it is
left to cool.
Regularly wipe over the hob top using a soft
cloth well wrung out in warm water to which a
little washing up liquid has been added. Avoid
the use of the following:
• household detergent and bleaches;
• impregnated pads unsuitable for non-stick
saucepans;
• steel wool pads;
• bath/sink stain removers.
To maintain the appearance of your sealed
hotplates apply a little salt-free vegetable oil or
restorative agent periodically.
The Hotplates
Spills onto the actual plate should be removed
using warm water and a soft brush, nylon or
plastic scourer. To keep the plates looking as new,
hotplate conditioner can be purchased from most
hardware stores, e.g. “4 Hob” by HomeCare
Products (follow the manufacturer’s instruction for
use). Alternatively, wipe the plates with a drop of
olive oil on a kitchen towel to avoid rust. It is
important to note that the plate will smoke a little
and produce a slightly unpleasant odour when
next used.
To apply vegetable oil: first heat the hotplate on a
medium setting for 30 seconds then turn off. Pour
a very small amount of salt-free oil onto a dry cloth
or kitchen paper. Apply a thin coat of oil to the
hotplate surface and wipe off any excess. Heat the
hotplate on a medium setting for 1 minute.
To apply restorative agent: first heat the hotplate
on a medium setting for 30 seconds then turn
off. Apply a very thin coating of Collo Electrol
(using the applicator). Heat a hotplate on a high
setting for 2-3 minutes to cure. Some smoke will
occur, this is normal and nontoxic. (NB: this
product is a restorative agent not a cleanser. It is
available from hardware stores).
Stainless steel parts: the stainless steel spill rings
may become straw coloured with use. Use a
proprietary stainless steel cleaner to remove this
straw discolouration. This also applies to the area
around the hotplates on stainless steel hobs.
Drying
Important: After cleaning, dry the hotplates
thoroughly by switching on to a low-medium
setting for a few minutes.
OVEN BULB REPLACEMENT
Ensure that the appliance is switched
off and disconnected from the electricity
supply before replacing the bulb to avoid
possibility of an electric shock.
