Reasons for
damage
Baking tray, aluminium foil
or dishes on the oven floor
Do not place the baking tray on the oven floor.
Do not cover it with aluminium foil.
Do not place dishes on the oven floor.
This will cause heat accumulation. The baking and
roasting times will no longer be correct and the
enamel will be damaged.
Slide-in accessories
To avoid damage, insert slide-in accessories
carefully.
Baking paper
If using hot air functions, do not place
greaseproof paper loosely in the oven (e.g. when
heating the oven).
The hot-air fan could draw in the paper which may
damage the heater and fan.
Water in the oven
Never pour water directly into a hot oven.
This could damage the enamel.
Fruit juice
When baking very moist fruit cakes, do not put too
much on the baking sheet. Fruit juice dripping from
the baking sheet leaves stains that cannot be
removed.
It is recommended that you use the deeper universal
pan.
Cooling with the oven door
Only leave the oven to cool with the door closed. Do
not allow anything to become trapped in the oven
door. Even if you only leave the oven door open
slightly, the fronts of adjacent units may become
damaged over time.
Very dirty oven seal
If the oven seal is very dirty, the oven door will no
longer close properly when the oven is in use.
The fronts of adjacent units could be damaged.
Keep the oven seal clean.
Using the oven door as a
seat
Do not stand or sit on the oven door.
Care and cleaning
Do not use high-pressure cleaners or steam jets.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
