Preparing to use your appliance
• Wipe over the base of the oven(s) with a soft
cloth using hot soapy water. Wash the
furniture before use.
• We suggest that you run the oven(s) and grill
for 10 – 15 minutes at maximum
temperature, to burn off any residue from
their surfaces. Accessible parts may become
hotter than in normal use. Children should be
kept away. During this period an odour may
be emitted, it is therefore advisable to open a
window for ventilation.
Condensation and steam
• When food is heated it produces steam
similar to a boiling kettle. The vents allow
some of this steam to escape. However,
always stand back from the appliance when
opening the door(s) 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 appliance, e.g.
a trim, it will condense and produce water
droplets. This is quite normal and is not
caused by a fault on the appliance.
• To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe
away condensation and foodstuff from
• For your safety wall coverings at the rear of
the appliance should be securely fixed to the
• Do not use baking trays larger than 30cm x
30cm (12” x 12”) as they will restrict the
circulation of heat and may affect
Grill and oven furniture
• The following items of grill and oven furniture
have been supplied with the appliance. If
you require replacements of any of the items
listed below please contact your local service
force centre.

1 grill pan
2 straight shelves
(For main oven cooking)
1 grill pan handle
1 grill pan grid
The hob
The gas hob has different burner sizes to suit
different types of cooking.
To ensure maximum burner efficiency only use
pots and pans with flat bases appropriate to the
burner size used.
The largest pan, which you should use on any
burner, is 230mm (9") and the smallest pan
should not measure less than 100mm (4").
Ensure the pan supports are correctly fitted
before using the hob.
To light the hob burners
The hob ignition works by means of a battery.
Lift up the lid. You can not use the hob when the lid is down.
Push in and turn the
control knob to the
highest setting.
Press the ignition
button immediately.
If the ignition button is not pressed
immediately a build up of gas may cause the
flame to spread.
To turn off any burner
Turn the control knob to the off position. This is
shown by a dot.
When the burner has lit release the control and
ignition button, adjust the setting as required
If you close the lid of the appliance while any
of the hotplate burners are lit, the gas will go
out. This is because it would be dangerous
if the burners stayed on when the lid was
Always use the control knob to turn off a
burner. Do not use the lid as a cut-off
device. This will only cut off the gas when
the lid is closed. The gas will flow again
when the lid is opened.
When lighting any burner, ensure that it is lit
before you leave the appliance.
When turning off a burner, ensure the flame
has gone out before leaving the appliance.
Things to note
If you are having any difficulty lighting a hob
burner turn all the hob controls off and make
sure the burner parts have been replaced
Hints and tips
• Do not overfill pans or they will boil over.
• Do not use pans with very heavy handles,
which cause the pan to tip.
• The hob surface should be allowed to cool
before closing the lid.
• Any spillage should be removed from the lid
before opening.
• Do not leave accidental spillage on the hob
or removable parts. The spillage should be
wiped up and the parts washed and carefully
dried as soon as the hob, pan supports and
burner parts are cool enough to touch.
• A flat-based Wok will stand stable on the pan
supports. If you use a round Wok with a
collar support, the collar must be the open
wirework type otherwise the performance of
the burner will be affected.
Take care to avoid burns and scalds when
reaching across the hotplate.
Take extra care when deep fat frying, do not
cover the pan with a lid. Do not leave a pan
unattended. If the pan catches fire, leave it
where it is and turn off all controls. Place a
damp cloth or a fitting lid over the pan to
smother the flames. Never put water on the
fire. Leave to cool for 30 minutes.
Do not use the lid as a work surface or
chopping board. This could damage the
glass and reduce it’s strength.
Place pans on the centre of the burners.
Position pans so the handles cannot be
accidentally knocked or overhang the
appliance. Lift pans on and off the pan
supports. Do not slide them across the hob.
The grill
Accessible parts may be hot when the grill is
in use. Young children should be kept away.
When you first operate the grill you may hear
some sounds as the burner heats up, this is
quite normal and is not a fault on the appliance.
Using the grill
Fully open the door before lighting the grill.
Push in and turn the
control knob to the
highest setting.
Press the ignition
button immediately.
The grill door must be left open when
When the burner has lit release the control and
ignition button, adjust the setting as required
Never cover the grill pan or grid with foil as
this can lead to grill fires.
Things to note
• Some smoke from fat splashes may be
evident as the grill cleans itself.
To turn off the grill
Ensure that the grill is turned off before
closing the door.
Turn the control knob to the off position. This is
shown by a dot.

Ensure the handle is properly located.
Place the grill pan on the shelf so that the pan is
positioned centrally beneath the grill.
Protect your hands when removing the grill
pan handle. Always remove the grill pan
handle during grilling.
To check the progress of the food being grilled,
the grill pan should be withdrawn on the shelf to
attend to food during cooking.
Hints and tips
• 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.
• 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
• Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed underneath the
grid when grilling meats.
• When toasting bread use the shelf in position
2 with the grid in the high position.
• Preheat the grill on a full setting for a few
minutes before sealing steaks or toasting.
Adjust the heat setting and the shelf as
necessary during cooking.
• The food should be turned over during
cooking as required.

The main oven
Heat zones
To fit the main oven shelves
There are zones of heat within the oven. The
temperature in the middle is the gas mark you
have chosen. The top of the oven is slightly
hotter and the lower shelf slightly cooler. The
base of the oven is quite a lot cooler. You can
make use of these heat zones when you are
cooking foods requiring different temperatures
all at the same time.
If you are cooking more than one tray of similar
items, for example cakes or biscuits, swap the
trays during cooking or you can remove the top
tray when the food is cooked and move the
lower tray to the higher shelf to finish cooking.
The shelf should be fitted with the straight rods
uppermost on the frame and the forms towards
the back of the oven. If not fitted correctly the
anti-tilt and safety stop mechanism will be
When you need to preheat the oven, we
recommend you do so for 20 minutes.
For recipes needing high temperatures, e.g.
bread, pastries, scones, soufflés etc., best
results are achieved if the oven is preheated
first. For best results when cooking frozen or
cooked chilled ready meals always preheat the
oven first.
To remove a shelf slide the shelf towards you
until the shelf stop is reached. Tilt shelf up at
the front so that the stops clear the side
supports. Lift shelf clear.
To install a shelf, reverse the above steps.
Using the main oven
Fully open the door before lighting the main oven.
Push in the control
knob and turn it to gas
mark 9.
When the burner has
lit release the
control knob.
There will only be
small flames at first.
When the burner is
showing large flames,
adjust the setting as
Do not close the door
until the burner is
showing large flames.
To turn the main oven off
Turn the control knob to the off position. This is
shown by a dot.
Hints and tips
• Arrange the shelves in the required positions
before switching the oven on. Shelf positions
are numbered from the top downwards.
• Ensure that food is placed centrally on the shelf
and there is sufficient room around the baking
tray/dish to allow for maximum circulation.
• Do not push dishes too far back as food will
burn if it overhangs the burner flame.
• Stand dishes on a suitably sized baking tray on
the shelf to prevent spillage onto the oven base
and to help reduce cleaning.
• The material and finish of the baking tray and
dishes used affect base browning.
Enamelware, dark, heavy or non-stick utensils
increase base browning. Shiny aluminium or
polished steel trays reflect the heat away and
give less base browning.
• When cooking more than one dish in the oven,
place dishes centrally on different shelves
rather than cluster several dishes on one shelf,
this will allow the heat to circulate freely for the
best cooking results.
• If you are cooking more than one tray of similar
items, for example cakes or biscuits, swap the
trays during cooking or you can remove the top
tray when the food is cooked and move the
lower tray to the higher shelf to finish cooking.
• Do not place baking trays directly on the oven
base as it interferes with the oven air
circulation and can lead to base burning; use
the lower shelf position.
Do not place cookware and cooking pots
with rough bases e.g. cast iron on the oven
door as damage to the glass may occur.

The roasting temperatures and times given in the chart should be adequate for most joints, but
slight adjustments may be required to allow for personal requirements and the shape and texture of
the meat. However, lower temperatures and longer cooking times are recommended for less tender
cuts or larger joints.
Wrap joints in foil if preferred, for extra browning uncover for the last 20 – 30 min. cooking time.
Slow cook
The slow cook setting gives a very low heat in
the oven. It is particularly useful when you are
cooking soups, stews and casseroles because
the long slow cooking will make cheaper,
tougher cuts of meat more tender.
Some foods such as pastry and biscuits are not
suitable for slow cooking because the
temperature is too low. Cover all food during
cooking to prevent it from drying out. You can
uncover food for the last half hour if it is
normally served golden brown.
Using slow cook
You need to cook food at gas mark 6 for 30 minutes before you turn the oven down to the slow cook
setting. This makes sure that the temperature of the food gets hot enough to start the food cooking.

• For good air circulation always stand joints
on a rack in a roasting tin or casserole.
• Thaw all frozen meat and poultry before you
cook it.
• Prime cuts of meat do not benefit from slow
• Remove excess fat and skin unless it is
browned first.

General points
Frozen Foods
Thaw thoroughly before cooking.
Toss meat in flour for casseroles.
Alternatively blend cornflour with water and add
it at the end of cooking.
Flavours are held in the food because there is
little evaporation. Adjust flavouring at the end of
the cooking time.
Use slightly less liquid as there is little
evaporation during cooking. Always add milk
and milk products, for example cream towards
the end of cooking to prevent them from
• Cut into small pieces.
• Dried beans must be pre-soaked then boiled
in an open pan for 15 minutes before adding
to any dish.
• Place vegetables under meat in casseroles.
• Cover food with a tight fitting lid or tin foil.
Cool left over food quickly and then put it in the
fridge. Do not reheat food using the slow cook
setting. Reheat food in the usual way or in a
microwave. Only reheat food once.
Care and cleaning
Before cleaning always allow the appliance
to cool down before switching off at the
electricity supply.
Cleaning materials
• Before using any cleaning materials on your
appliance, check that they are suitable and
that their use is recommended by the
• Cleaners that contain bleach should not be
used as they may dull the surface finishes.
Harsh abrasives and scourers should also
be avoided.
Cleaning the outside of the
• Do not use abrasive cleaning materials e.g.
abrasive cream cleaners, wire wool pads or
scourers on painted or printed finishes as
damage may occur. Regularly wipe over the
control panel, control knobs, handles, doors
and appliance sides using a soft cloth and
hot soapy water. To prevent streaking, finish
with a soft cloth.
• Stainless Steel cream cleaners are abrasive
and should be avoided as they may dull the
surface finish. Any spillage on the
stainless steel finish must be wiped off
Do not attempt to remove any of the control
knobs from the appliance as this may cause
damage and is a safety hazard.
Cleaning the hob
• Clean the hob using a mild abrasive.
• Take care not to damage the spark
electrodes. If the spark electrodes are
damaged the burners will not light. You can
remove the pan supports, burner caps and
burner crowns to clean them. Again take
care not to damage the spark electrodes.
• Clean the burner crowns and pan supports
by soaking them in very hot soapy water.
• Aluminium based saucepans can leave shiny
metal marks on the pan supports. You can
remove any stubborn stains by scouring with
a soap impregnated steel wool pad. If you
look after the burner crowns and pan
supports in this way they will stay reasonably
clean. However the surface will dull with
time. After cleaning the appliance parts, dry
them thoroughly before you put them back.
When replacing hob burner
1. Crown to body. (Do not try to force the crown
on to the body). Make sure that the hole in
the crown is over the electrode. Check that
the location pegs sit in the slots in the body.
When the crown is in this position let it fall
freely on to the body. Check that the crown
can be moved slightly from side to side.
2. Cap to crown. Place cap centrally on the top
of crown (enamel side up). Move sideways
and front to back to check the cap is properly
3. Check for ignition. If a burner will not light
then you need to check the crown and cap
Pan support
Location peg
Cleaning the grill and oven
All removable parts, except the grill pan handle
can be washed in the dishwasher.
The grill pan, grill pan grid and oven shelves
may be cleaned using a soap impregnated steel
wool pad. Soaking first in hot soapy water will
make cleaning easier.
Cleaning the grill
Do not clean the grill burner itself. Cleaning the
grill may cause the holes in the burner to
become blocked preventing it from operating
correctly. Due to the nature of stainless steel the
grill burner may tarnish through use over a
period of time. This is quite normal and is not a
fault on the appliance. Clean the area around
the grill frequently using hot soapy water.
Cleaning inside the grill and
oven compartments
• The sides and back of the main oven
compartments are coated with a special
Stay-clean coating. They should not be
cleaned manually.
• The vitreous enamel main oven base and
grill compartment can be cleaned using
normal oven cleaners with care. Ensure that
the manufacturers instructions are followed
and that all parts are well rinsed afterwards.
Aerosol cleaners must not come into contact
with elements, the door seal, or any painted
finishes as this may cause damage.
Aerosol cleaners must not be used on Stayclean surfaces.
• To carry out the cleaning cycle, remove the
oven shelves and set the oven to gas mark 6.
• It is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or
two per week to ensure continued good
performance from the Stay-clean finish.
• Slight discolouration and polishing of the Stayclean surfaces may occur in time. This does
not affect the Stay-clean properties in any way.
• Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when
roasting meat, potatoes only require brushing
with fat before cooking. Extra fat in the oven
during roasting will increase splashing and
staining of the cavity.
• It is not necessary to add water to a meat tin
when roasting. The water and the fat juices
from the joint create excessive splattering
during cooking – even at normal temperatures,
as well as causing condensation.
• Covering joints during cooking will also prevent
splashing onto the interior surfaces. Removing
the covering for the last 20-30 minutes will
allow extra browning if required. Some large
joints and turkeys especially benefit by this
method of cooking, allowing the joint to cook
through before the outside is over-browned.
Cleaning the door(s)
Hold the door glass securely in place with
one hand before removing the screws
completely with the other hand.
Using both hands, gently tilt the top of the
door glass towards you; lift slightly to
disengage the locators from the two bottom
Clean the outer and inner glass using hot
soapy water or hob cleaner may be used.
Do not use hob cleaner on the Stainless
Steel or painted finishes. Do not try to
clean the foil, which is inside the door. The
foil is there to help keep the door cool, if it
is damaged it will not work. Ensure that all
parts are well rinsed and thoroughly dried
before attempting to replace the outer door.
To prevent damaging or weakening the door
glass panels avoid the use of the following:
Household detergents and bleaches
Soap impregnated pads unsuitable for
non-stick saucepans.
Abrasive cleaning pads, scourers and
steel wool pads.
Chemical oven pads or aerosols.
Rust removers.
Bath/Sink stain removers.
Cleaning between the outer and
inner door glass
The outer door glass is removable for cleaning.
Please note that the door glass on your product may differ in
type and shape from that shown in the diagrams.
To remove the outer door glass
Open the oven door slightly to gain access
to the two cross head screws on the top of
the oven door.
Loosen the two screws using a Pozidrive
If the door glass panel becomes chipped or
has deep scratches the glass will be
weakened and must be replaced to prevent
the possibility of the panel shattering.
Please contact your local service force
centre who will be pleased to advise further.
To replace the outer door glass
Holding the oven glass with both hands,
gently place the locators into the holes of
the brackets at the bottom of the oven
Push the top of the oven glass towards the
oven door; ensuring the screw location
holes line up.
Hold the glass in place with one hand and
insert the crosshead screws into the
location holes with the other hand. Give
the screws one turn to ensure the glass is
Tighten the screws positively with a
Pozidrive screwdriver before closing the
oven door.
Do not attempt to use the oven without the
glass being in place.
To clean the glass door panels
Clean the glass door panels using hot soapy
water, hob cleaner may also be used. Do not
use hob cleaner on the stainless steel or
painted surfaces. Ensure that all parts are well
rinsed and thoroughly dried before attempting to
replace the glass.
