Temperatures between 180 to 190 °C are selected and the food is placed on the wire shelf, roasting on the roasting/grill pan. Advantages: – ideal for steaks, sausages, chicken joints, fish, kebabs and chops – no turning of food is required – three shelves of ‘grilled’ food can be prepared at one time – very convenient. Defrost e AquaCleanse (oven cleaning system) d A fan in the rear wall of the oven circulates the air in the oven around the frozen food. The fan system is running without heating. Advantages: – Gentle defrosting. – Frozen pieces of meat, poultry, bread and cakes defrost evenly. The oven cleaning function featured in your oven is intended to help you keep your oven neat and tidy. An amount of cleaning solution is vaporised automatically. The combined effects of heat and steam soften the soil deposits on the oven wall enamel and facilitate their removal. For more information on this function, see the section on ”Cleaning and Care” later in this booklet. Advantages: – takes the toil out of oven cleaning – protects the enamel on interior surfaces – constitutes an environmentally friendly cleaning method 14 Description of Oven Features – mini oven Top and bottom heat (Conventional heating system) / The food being baked or roasted is exposed to heat radiation from heating elements located at the top and bottom of the oven cavity. Baking and roasting is possible on one shelf position only. Advantages: – Baking of cake with wet fillings, pizza, quiche, e.g. Surface grilling The food being prepared is exposed to heat radiation from the heating element at the top of the oven cavity. – Particularly effective with flat, small cuts of meat, i.e., steaks, sausages, fish, vegetables and toast. Large area grill ( Small area grill ) Advantages: – the entire grilling surface heats up – especially useful with large amounts of food Advantages: – only the centre area of the grilling surface heats up – especially useful with small amounts of food – energy-saving operation 15 Switching the Oven ON and OFF – main oven Switching the oven ON: 1. Set the temperature control knob to the desired temperature. The selected temperature will be controlled automatically. The red oven temperature control lamp illuminates when the oven is first switched on, and extinguishes when the required temperature has been reached. – mini oven Before switching on your oven, you should decide which heating system you wish to use. Switching the oven ON: 1. Use the function selector to determine the desired system. 2. Set the temperature control knob to the desired temperature. The selected temperature will be controlled automatically. The oven temperature control lamp illuminates when the oven is first switched on, and extinguishes when the required temperature has been reached. Switching the oven OFF: To switch the oven OFF, turn both the temperature selector and functions selector to the »0« position. Notes: The appliance features a cooling fan which runs until the oven has cooled down. 16 Baking – main oven Using baking tins Always place baking tins in the centre of the baking wire shelf. We recommend dark metallic baking tins. Notes Light coloured baking tins made from thin-wall materials lead to longer baking times and uneven browning of the cake. You can influence the degree of browning by changing the temperature setting. If a cake collapses after removing it from the oven, consider using a longer baking time, or use a slightly lower temperature setting. Using tinplate baking tins * / Circotherm Top/bottom heat Shelf position 1 Shelf position 1 If the cake bottom gets too dark: Check the shelf position. Shorten the baking time, and possibly use a lower baking temperature. If the cake bottom stays too light: Check the shelf position. Increase the baking time, select a lower temperature, or use a dark metal baking tin. Do not place baking tins or high cakes too close to the rear oven wall. 17 Cooking Tips and Helpful Hints The bottom of a cake baked on a baking sheet stays too light Remove from the oven all baking sheets or universal pan currently not in use. The bottom of a cake baked in a tin stays too light Use a wire shelf and not a baking sheet to support the cake tin during baking. The bottom of cake or cookies gets too dark Set cake or cookies into a higher set of shelf position. The cake gets too dry Select a slightly higher oven temperature, and shorter baking time. The cake is too moist on the inside Choose a slightly lower baking temperature. Note: Higher temperatures do not shorten baking times (done on the outside, raw on the inside). Choose a slightly longer baking time, allow the dough to rise slightly longer. Add less liquid to the dough. When baked with circotherm, Avoid blocking the air vents at the rear wall of the cake baked in round or oven cavity with the cake tins. square tins gets too dark at the rear Very moist cake dough (e.g. fruit cake) causes a lot of steam to generate in the oven that condenses on the oven door. You can let the steam escape from the oven and thereby reduce the forming of water droplets by briefly and carefully opening the oven door (once or twice, in case of longer baking times more often). Very uneven browning when using circotherm Check the shelf position. Cake collapses when taken out of the oven Use less liquid. To save energy Preheat only if expressly required by the recipe. Dark baking tins have a higher degree of heat absorption. Residual heat: In the case of longer baking times, you can switch off the oven 5-10 minutes before the full baking time has elapsed. 18 Roasting – main oven Place the wire shelf into the universal pan and slide them together into the same shelf position. Meat can be roasted in the oven in a particularly economical fashion if the weight of the cut exceeds 750 grams. Roasting in an uncovered pot Rinse the universal pan and/or the roaster with water, and place the meat into it. With fat meat and poultry, pour 125 to 250 ml of water (to suit the size and kind of roast) into the universal pan. At your discretion, baste lean meat with fat, or cover it with bacon strips. The roast drippings collecting in the universal pan make a tasty gravy. Dissolve the drippings with hot water, bring to a boil, thicken with corn starch, season to taste and, if required, pass it through a strainer. No preheating is required. Save energy by putting the roast into the oven while it is still cold. Roasting in a covered pot Place the meat into the roasting pot (or Dutch oven), cover it with a matching lid, and place it on the grill in the oven. We recommend that beef roast be prepared in a covered roasting pot. 19 Tips Big, high roasts, goose, turkey, duck = Long roasting times, low temperatures Medium sized, low roasts = Medium roasting times, medium temperatures Small, flat roasts = Short roasting times, high temperatures Roasting time per cm of meat height without bones app. 13-15 minutes Roasting time per cm of meat height with bones app. 15-18 minutes We recommend using the lower of the stated temperatures first. In general, the lower temperature ensures a more even browning. We recommend turning the roast after half or two thirds of the roasting time have elapsed when using the setting /. For roasting, use only cookware with oven-proof handles. Prepare large roast directly in the universal pan, without using the wire shelf. Smaller cuts of meat can be roasted on aluminium foil. To do so, bend the edges of the foil upward, as if to form a dish, and place it on the wire shelf. After the end of the selected roasting time and with the oven switched OFF, leave the roast in the closed oven for approx. 10 minutes. The roast is not done on the inside Use a lower roasting temperature. Note: Higher temperatures do not shorten roasting times (done on the outside, raw on the inside). Choose slightly longer roasting times. Very moist roasts (e.g. roasts prepared with water) cause a lot of steam to generate in the oven that condenses on the oven door. You can let the steam escape from the oven and thereby reduce the forming of water droplets by briefly and carefully opening the oven door (once or twice, in case of longer roasting times more often). 20 Grilling – main oven Circotherm grilling Use this method for small cuts of meat – steaks, chops, sausages, bacon, chicken joints and fish. Use the shelf and roasting pan together. Season meat as required. Place on shelf. Do not turn food over – the hot air will circulate around the food cooking all sides. Use a temperature of 180–190 °C. Roasting – mini oven Roasting with conventional heat Follow the steps above. With fatty meat 125 – 250 ml (4 – 8floz) of water can be poured into the roasting pan. Baste the meat if desired. Place in a cold oven to save energy or pre-heat if desired. Casseroling or pot-roasting in a covered dish Some meats should be prepared in liquid in a covered casserole. This type of cooking is suitable for less tender cuts of meat. Place the casserole on the wire shelf at a suitable shelf position. Cooking tips Only use ovenproof cookware. Extra large turkeys and joints can be placed directly in the roasting pan and not on the wire shelf. Cover large turkeys with foil during cooking. Remove foil during the last hour. 21 Grilling – mini oven Exercise CAUTION when grilling. Always keep children at a safe distance. Notes on grilling Always close the oven door when grilling. The grilling temperatures are variable. Always use the wire shelf and the universal pan. Always place food to be grilled in the centre of the wire shelf. If the grill element (heating element) switches OFF automatically, the overheating protection was activated. The radiator will be reactivated after a short period of time. Place the wire shelf into the universal pan and slide them together into the same shelf position. Surface grilling ( Used for smaller dishes having little height/thickness. Always use the wire shelf and universal pan together. Turn the food after approx. two-thirds of the grilling time has elapsed. At your discretion, lightly baste the wire shelf and the food with oil. ) 22 Defrosting and cooking – main oven Defrosting with circotherm Important heating system information For defrosting and cooking of frozen or deepfrozen foods, use only the circotherm. With all deep-frozen foods, follow the food processing company‘s instructions on the package. As a rule, defrosted frozen or deep-frozen foods (especially meats) require less cooking time than fresh products, since freezing has a pre-cooking effect. If frozen meat is placed in the oven, the defrosting time must be added to the required cooking time. Always defrost deep-frozen poultry before cooking because the giblets must be removed. For cooking deep-frozen fish, use the same temperatures as for fresh fish. Deep-frozen ready-to-eat meals in aluminium dishes may be placed into the oven several at a time. Frozen vegetables (i.e., when cooking complete meals) should be cooked in a covered pot together with the roast. Use only approximately half of the liquid specified in the recipe. Use fat only for adding flavour. Shelf positions With 1 baking sheet: With 2 baking sheets: Shelf position 1 Shelf positions 1 + 3. All stated times are approximate guidelines that vary with the shape and volume of deep-frozen products. 23 Defrosting and cooking Raw deep-frozen products or foods from a freezer always defrost at 50° C. Higher defrosting temperatures may cause the food to dry out. Defrost deep-frozen meals packed in aluminium foil or closed aluminium containers at a setting of 130 – 140° C. Place frozen meals packed in plastic bags or plastic containers in a pot filled with water. Cover the pot and defrost at 130 – 140° C. Attention: Pot handles must be oven-proof. Defrost and warm up deep-frozen baked goods at 100 – 140° C. Brush bread, rolls or yeast pastry lightly with water to make the crust more appealing. Defrost dry deep-frozen yeast cakes at 160 – 170° C for 20 – 30 minutes. Defrost moist deep-frozen yeast cakes (with fruit topping) at 160 – 170° C for 30 – 50 minutes after wrapping in aluminium foil to prevent cake from drying out. Defrost and toast deep-frozen toast (with topping) at 160 – 170° C for about 20 minutes. Frozen pizza: Please follow the manufacturers’ instructions. Defrosting position e Recommended for delicate pastries only (i.e., whipped-cream gateaus). Turn the function selector switch to the eposition. Dependent on size and type of the baked goods, defrost 25 – 45 minutes, take out of the oven and allow to stand 30 – 45 minutes. With smaller amounts (pastries), the defrosting time is reduced to 15 – 20 minutes and the subsequent standing time to 10 – 15 minutes. 24 Cleaning and Care Important cleaning basics For cleaning, do not use abrasives, no corrosive cleaners, and no sharp objects. Do not scratch off burnt-in food residues, but soak them off with a moist cloth and dishwashing detergent. Cleaning products we particularly recommend can be purchased from our customer service. Appliance exterior Stainless steel/ aluminium front Use commercially available detergents applied to a soft, moistened cloth or a chamois. Do not use aggressive cleaning agents, abrasive sponges, or coarse cleaning cloths. On heavy soiling use commercial cleaning agents on matted stainless steel/aluminium surfaces. Please observe the manufacturer’s instructions. Enamel and glass Use commercially available detergents applied to a soft, moistened cloth or a chamois. Oven door pane The temperature of the pane inside the oven door is reduced by a heat-reflecting coating. The reduced temperature ensures that visibility through the oven door window is not impaired. When the oven door is open, this coating may have a bright appearance. This is quite normal and does not indicate a quality defect. Oven interior Clean the oven after each use, especially after roasting or grilling. Food remnants burn in when the oven is reheated. The baked in remnants are very difficult to remove once burnt in. 25 Note: To prevent soiling use: • the universal pan to bake very moist cakes. • suitable utensils (frying pan) for frying. For easier cleaning you can switch on the oven lamp and take off the oven door. For cleaning the mating surface of the oven door at the front of the oven, the door should be removed. Enamel areas in the oven Use hot soapy water or a vinegar solution. It is best to use oven cleaner if the oven is very dirty. Only use oven cleaner in a cold oven. We recommend cleaning gels because these can be applied with greater precision. Do not clean the warm oven with any of the cleaning products specifically designed for this purpose. Leave the oven open so that it can dry after cleaning. Note: Enamel is baked on at very high temperatures. This can cause some slight colour variation. This is normal and does not affect the function. Do not use coarse scouring pads or strong cleaning agents to remove such discolorations. The edges of thin trays cannot be completely enamelled. As a result, these edges can be rough. Anti-corrosion protection is guaranteed. 26 Catalytic oven surfaces Cleaning the catalytic surfaces of the oven The rear wall of the oven and the oven ceiling is coated with self-cleaning enamel. The surface cleans itself while the oven is in operation. Large splashes sometimes only disappear after the oven has been used several times. Never use oven cleaner on the back wall of the oven. Should the enamel become slightly stained, this will not affect its self-cleaning properties. 27 AquaCleanse – main oven d The oven cleaning function featured in your oven is intended to help you keep your oven neat and tidy. An amount of cleaning solution is vaporised automatically. The combined effects of heat and steam soften the soil deposits on the oven wall enamel and facilitate their removal. Caution: Never pour cold water into the oven while it is still hot. The cleaning system can only be activated when the oven has cooled down completely (room temperature). Use normal water only, and no distilled water. Activate oven cleaning: 1. Remove the baking sheet and the universal pan from the oven. The wire shelf may remain in the oven. 2. Pour approx. 400 ml of water mixed with a little dish washing liquid detergent into the floor pan of the oven cavity. In the case of heavy soil build-up, you may wish to allow the cleaning solution to soak in for a while before you activate the cleaning function. 3. Close the oven door. 4. Turn the function selector to the dposition. The oven cleaning and the oven temperature control lamp are illuminated. After the initial heating time (approx. 4 minutes) the oven temperature control lamp extinguishes. After a further 17 minutes the program cycle is completed. A buzzer sounds. Switching the oven OFF: Turn the function selector to the 0 position. The oven cleaning control lamp extinguishes. 28 After deactivating the oven cleaning function Cleaning tips: Never leave the residual water in the oven for any length of time, e.g. overnight. 1. Open the oven door and pick up the remaining water with a large absorbent sponge cloth. 2. Using the detergent-soaked sponge cloth, a soft brush or a plastic pot scrubber, wipe of the oven interior. Stubborn soil remnants can be removed with a cleaning scraper for glass-ceramic. Caution: Use the scraper carefully, and do not apply the tool at too flat an angle, because the enamel could be scratched! 3. Calciferous deposits may be removed with a cloth soaked in vinegar. 4. Wipe clean with clear water and dry with a soft cloth (do not forget to wipe under the oven door seal). Cleaning tips: If the oven is heavily soiled, the procedure may be repeated after the oven has cooled. If the oven is heavily soiled with grease, e.g. after roasting or grilling, we would recommend rubbing any stubborn dirt with detergent before activating the oven cleaning function. After cleaning, leave the oven door in its slanted detent position, i.e., at a 30-degree angle, to allow the interior enamel surfaces to dry thoroughly. Rapid drying 1. Place the oven door into the slanted detent position, at an angle of approximately 30 degrees. 2. Turn the function selector to the 50° C. Allow oven to heat for 5 minutes. 3. Afterwards return the function selector and the temperature selector to the »0« position. 29 Removing/installing the oven door Oven door Note: To make the manual cleaning steps following the automatic oven cleaning function more convenient, the appliance features the following options. Removing the oven door 1. Fully open the oven door. 2. Move the catch levers on the right and left-hand sides to the fully open position. 3. Placing the door at an upward angle toward you, grasp the door with both hands and lift it out of the hinges toward you. When pulling the door out, make sure that you do not reach into the hinge. There is a risk of injury. Hanging the oven door 1. Set both hinges into their respective receptacles on the left and right, and swing the oven door downward. 2. Close the catch levers on the left and right. 3. Close the oven door. 30 Shelf supports Removing You can remove the shelf supports for cleaning. 1.
