Table – Cooking
Select the right pan size for each hotplate. The diameter of the
pot or pan base should be the same as that of the hotplate.
Cooking times may vary depending on the type of food, its
weight and quality. You yourself can best judge the optimal
cooking time.
Use as little water as possible when cooking, so that the food
retains its vitamins and minerals. Select short cooking times so
that the vegetables remain firm and full of nutrients.

Precautions for use
The following advice is intended to help you save energy and
prevent pan damage:
Do not cook without using a lid
and make sure the lid is
properly fitted. This wastes
energy.
Use pans which are the right
size for each burner.
Do not use small pans on
large burners. The flame must
not touch the sides of the pan.
Do not use damaged pans,
which do not sit evenly on the
hob. Pans may tip over.
Only use pans with a thick, flat
base.
Always place the ovenware
centrally over the burner.
Otherwise, there is a risk that it
may tip over.
Place the pans on the pan
supports, never directly on the
burner.
Make sure that the pan
supports and burner caps are
correctly positioned before
using the appliance.
14
Pans should be placed on the
hob carefully.
Never use two burners or heat
sources to heat one single
pan.
Do not strike the hob and do
not place excessive weight on
it.
Do not use grill pans,
earthenware casserole dishes,
etc. for a long period of time
on maximum power.

Care and cleaning
With attentive care and cleaning, your hob and oven will retain
its looks and remain in good working order for a long time. We
will explain here how you should care for and clean them
correctly.
Zone
Cleaning agent
Stainless steel surfaces*
Shadows on the door panel which look like streaks, are
caused by reflections made by the oven light.
Hot soapy water:
Clean with a dish cloth and dry with a
soft cloth. On stainless steel surfaces,
always wipe parallel to the natural grain.
Otherwise, you may scratch the surface.
Remove patches and splashes of limescale, grease, starch and albumin (e.g.
egg white) immediately. Corrosion can
form under such patches and splashes.
Enamel is baked on at very high temperatures. This can
cause some slight colour variations. This is normal and does
not affect operation. The edges of thin trays cannot be
completely enamelled. As a result, these edges can be
rough. This will not impair the anti-corrosion protection.
Special care products suitable for hot
stainless steel surfaces are available
from our after-sales service and from
specialist retailers. Apply a thin layer of
care product with a soft cloth.
Notes
■ Slight differences in the colours on the front of the oven are
caused by the use of different materials, such as glass,
plastic and metal.

Energy and environment tips
Here you can find tips on how to save energy when baking and
roasting in the oven and when cooking on the hob, and how to
dispose of your appliance properly.
Saving energy
■
■
■
■
Only preheat the oven if this is specified in the recipe or in
the tables in the instruction manual.
Use dark, black lacquered or enamelled baking tins, because
they absorb heat particularly well.
Open the oven door as infrequently as possible while the
food is baking and roasting.
For longer cooking times, the oven can be turned off
10 minutes before the end of the cooking time, and the meal
can be finished using residual heat.
Saving energy with the gas hob
■
■
■
Always use a saucepan which is the correct size for your
food. A larger, less full saucepan requires a lot of energy.
Always place a suitable lid on the saucepan.
The gas flame must always be in contact with the base of the
saucepan.
20
Environmentally-friendly disposal
Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-friendly manner.
This appliance is labelled in accordance with
European Directive 2012/19/EU concerning used
electrical and electronic appliances (waste electrical
and electronic equipment - WEEE). The guideline
determines the framework for the return and recycling
of used appliances as applicable throughout the EU.
Tested for you in our cooking studio.
Here you will find a selection of dishes and the ideal settings for
them. We will show you which type of heating and which
temperature are best suited for your dish. You can find
information about suitable accessories and the height at which
they should be inserted. There are also tips about cookware
and preparation methods.
Notes
■ The values in the table apply to dishes placed into the
cooking compartment when it is cold and empty.
Only preheat the appliance if the table specifies that you
should do so. Line the accessories with greaseproof paper
before preheating.
■
■
■
■
The times specified in the tables are guidelines only. They will
depend on the quality and composition of the food.
Use the accessories supplied. Additional accessories may be
obtained as special accessories from specialist retailers or
from the after-sales service.
Before using the appliance, remove all accessories from the
cooking compartment that you will not be using.
Always use oven gloves when taking hot accessories or
ovenware out of the cooking compartment.

Cakes and pastries
Cake tins
When you are baking in the cake tin, insert the wire rack at the
level indicated and place the cake tin on the wire rack.
Dark-coloured cake tins are the most suitable.
If you use light-coloured baking tins or glass, the baking time
increases and the cake is not browned evenly.
Only use heat-resistant glass dishes. Do not place a hot glass
dish on a cold or wet surface. The glass could break.
If you want to use silicone moulds, follow the guidelines in the
manufacturer's instruction manual. Silicone moulds turn out
slightly smaller than normal cake tins. For this reason, the
quantities may be slightly different to those indicated in your
recipe.
Caution!
Baking tables for the lower burner in the gas oven
The appliance was manufactured to suit the reference gases
specified in the standards. If a gas is used which does not
comply with the specified gas mixture and pressure, cooking
performance and heat output may not produce the desired
result.
The values in the table apply to dishes placed into the cooking
compartment when it is cold and empty.
In the tables, you will find the optimum types of heating for a
selection of cakes and gateaux. The temperature and cooking
times depend on the quantity and consistency of the dough.
The heat is distributed in the oven as soon as the gas escaping
from the lower gas burner is ignited. For this reason, the
underside of food is usually more browned than the top.

How to tell whether sponge cake is
baked through:
Approx. 10 minutes before the end of the baking time stated in the recipe, insert a cocktail stick into the cake at its deepest point. If the cocktail stick comes out clean, the cake
is ready.
The cake collapses.
Next time, add less liquid. Observe the specified mixing times in the recipe.
The cake has risen in the middle but is
lower around the edge.
Do not grease the edge of the springform cake tin. After baking, loosen the cake carefully with a knife.
The cake is too dry.
Make tiny holes in the finished cake using a cocktail stick. Then drizzle fruit juice or an
alcoholic drink over it. Next time, reduce the baking time.
The bottom of a fruit cake is too light.
Place the cake one level lower the next time.
The fruit juice overflows.
Next time, use the deeper universal pan (if available).
The pieces of dough are sticking
There must be a distance of about 2 cm between the bread rolls. This gives enough
together when the yeast rolls are baked. space for the bread rolls to expand and bake evenly on all sides.
Condensation forms when you bake
moist cakes.
Steam can form during baking, which escapes via the door. The steam may settle and
form water droplets on the control panel or on the fronts of adjacent units. This is a natural process.
Meat, poultry, fish, toast
Turn the pieces of meat after Z of the cooking time.
Always place items in the centre of the wire rack.

Tips for roasting and grilling
The table does not contain information
for the weight of the joint.
Select the next lowest weight from the instructions and extend the time.
How to tell when the roast is ready.
Use a meat thermometer (available from specialist shops) or carry out a “spoon test”.
Press down on the roast with a spoon. If it feels firm, it is ready. If the spoon can be
pressed in, it needs to be cooked for a little longer.
The roast is too dark and the crackling
is partly burnt.
Check the shelf height and temperature.

too clear and watery.
Steam rises from the roast when basted. This is normal and due to the laws of physics. The majority of the steam escapes through
the steam outlet. It may settle and form condensation on the cooler switch panel or on
the fronts of adjacent units.
Acrylamide in foodstuffs
Acrylamide is mainly produced in grain and potato products
heated at high temperatures, such as potato crisps, chips,
toast, rolls, bread, baked goods made from shortcrust pastry
(biscuits, gingerbread, cookies).
Recommendations for baking, roasting and grilling with low acrylamide values
General
Oven chips
■
Keep cooking times to a minimum.
■
Cook the food until it is golden brown. "Browned, not charred".
■
The larger and thicker the food, the less acrylamide it contains.
Where possible, spread out a single layer of oven chips evenly on the baking tray. To
prevent the chips from trying out quickly, cook at least 400 g on the baking tray.
