OVENS USER INSTRUCTIONS General warnings Thank you for choosing one of our products. To get the most out of your oven we recommend that you: Read the notes in this manual carefully: they contain important instructions on how to install, use and service this oven safely. Keep this booklet in a safe place for easy, future reference. When the oven is first switched on it may give out acrid smelling fumes. This is because the bonding agent for insulating panels around the oven has been heated up for the first time. This is a completely normal, if it does occur you merely have to wait for the fumes to clear before putting the food into the oven. An oven by its very nature becomes very hot. Especially the glass of the oven door. Do not allow children to go near the oven when it is hot, especially when the grill is on. All accessible parts are hot when the oven is in operation, take care to not touch these elements. A specially designed protector shield (some models only) which reduces considerably the surface temperature of the oven door can be obtained through our service organization. This shield is recommended for households with young children. Declaration of compliance. The parts of this appliance that may come into contact with foodstuffs comply with the provisions of EEC Directive 89/109. This appliances complies with Directives 89/336/EEC, 73/23/EEC and following changes. When you have unpacked the oven, make sure that it has not been damaged in any way. If you have any doubts at all, do not use it: contact a professionally qualified person. Keep packing materials such as plastic bags, polystyrene, or nails out of the reach of children because they are dangerous for children. IMPORTANT The oven must be used only for the purpose for which it was designed: it must only be used for cooking food. Any other use, e.g. as a form of heating, is an improper use of the oven and is therefore dangerous. The manufacturers cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by improper, incorrect or unreasonable use. When using any electrical appliance you must follow a few basic rules. – Do not pull on the power cable to remove the plug from the socket. – Do not touch the oven with wet or damp hands or feet. – Do not use the oven unless you are wearing something on your feet. – Do not allow children on irresponsible people to use the oven unless they are carefully supervised. – It is not generally a good idea to use adapters, multiple sockets for several plugs and cable extensions. – If the oven breaks down or develops a fault switch it off at the mains and do not touch it. If the cable is at all damaged it must be replaced promptly. When replacing the cable, follow these instructions. Remove the power cable and replace it with one of equal length that has been insulated in rubber. The cable must be able to bear the electrical current required by the oven. Cable replacement must be carried out by properly qualified technicians. The earthing cable (yellow-green) must be 10 mm longer than the power cable. Use only an approved service centre for repairs and ensure that only original parts are used. If the above instructions are not adhered to the manufacturers cannot guarantee the safety of the oven. USEFUL TIPS Grilling Grilling makes it possible to give food a rich brown colour quickly. For browning we recommend that you insert the grill onto the fourth level, depending in the proportions of the food (pag.8). Almost all food can be cooked under the grill except for very lean game and meat rolls. Meat and fish that are going to be grilled should first be lightly doused with oil. Cooking times For recommended cooking times and temperatures the first time you use the oven, refer to the tables on pages 10,11, 12 and 13. You may then wish to vary these times and settings in the light of your own experience. Cleaning and maintenance Clean the stainless steel and enamelled surfaces with warm, soapy water or with suitable brand products. On no account use abrasive powders that may damage surfaces and ruin the oven’s appearance. It is very important to clean the oven each time that it is used. Melted fat is deposited on the sides of the oven during cooking. The next time the oven is used this fat could cause unpleasant odours and might even jeopardise the success of the cooking. Use hot water and detergent to clean; rinse out thoroughly. To make this chore unnecessary all models can be lined with catalytic self-cleaning panels: these are supplied as an optional extra (see the section SELFCLEANING OVEN WITH CATALYTIC LINING). Use detergents and abrasive metal pads like «brillo pads» for the stainless steel grills. The glass surfaces as the top, oven door and warming compartment door must be cleaned when they are cold. Damage that occurs to them because this rule was not adhered to are not covered by the guarantee. Never use abrasive cleaners, wire wool or sharp objects to clean the glass oven door. Never use steam or high pressure spray to clean the appliance. To replace the interior light: switch off the mains power supply and unscrew bulb. Replace with an identical bulb that can withstand very high temperatures. Self-cleaning oven with catalytic Special self-cleaning panels covered in a micro-porous coating are available as optional extras for all models. If they are fitted, the oven no longer needs to be cleaned by hand. The fat that is splattered onto the sides of the oven during roasting is eliminated by the microporous coating which breaks the fat down by catalysis and transforms it into gas. Excessive splattering may nevertheless block the pores and therefore hinder self-cleaning. The self-cleaning capacity may be restored by switching on the empty oven to maximum for about 10-20 minutes. Do not use abrasive products, metal cleaning wads, sharp objects, rough cloths, or chemical products and detergents that may permanently damage the catalytic lining. It is a good idea to use deep roasting trays to roast fatty foods such as joints of meat etc. and to put a tray underneath the grill to catch surplus fat. These simple precautions will ensure the correct temperature and ideal conditions for catalytic cleaning to take place. If the walls of the oven are so thickly coated in grease that the catalytic lining is no longer effective remove surplus grease with a soft cloth or sponge soaked in hot water. The lining must be porous for self-cleaning to be effective. N.B.: All catalytic linings currently on the market have a working life of about 300 hours. They should therefore be replaced after about 300 hours. Service centre Before calling the Service Centre If the oven is not working, we recommend that: — you check that the oven is properly plugged into the power supply. If the cause of the fault cannot be detected: disconnect the oven from the mains, do not touch the oven and call the after sales service. Before calling the Service Centre remember to make a note of the serial number on the serial number specifications plate. The oven is supplied with a guarantee certificate that ensures that it will be repaired free of charge at the Service Centre.

SETTING THE CORRECT TIME 3 WARNING : the first operation to carry out after the oven has been installed or following the interruption of power supply (this is recognizable the display pulsating and showing ) is setting the correct time. This is achieved as follows • Press and hold the “2” and “3” buttons • Set time with buttons • Release all buttons ATTENTION the oven only operates if set on manual function or preset time. PROGRAMMING THE LOWER OVEN 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 - Minute minder 2 - Time 3 - End of time 4 - Manual position 5 - “-” 6 - “+” COOKING TIPS Temperatures and cooking times are given for information only to facilitate using the oven. Personal experience should then let you adapt these settings to your taste and habits. Remember that cooking at higher temperatures causes more spattering, and the oven can become dirty and smoky. It is better to slightly reduce the cooking temperature, even if it means increasing the cooking time. The sides of the oven are equipped with different positions numbered from the bottom. COOKING TIPS MEAT It is better not to salt meats until after cooking as salt encourages the meat to spatter fat. This will dirty the oven and make a lot of smoke. Joints of white meat, pork, veal, lamb and fish can be put into the oven cold. The cooking time is longer than in a preheated oven, but it cooks through to the centre better as the heat has more time to penetrate the joint. Correct preheating is the basis of successful red meat cookery. GRILLS • Before loading the grill: Remove the meat from the refrigerator a few hours before grilling. Lay it on several layers of kitchen paper: this improves seizing, making it tastier and avoids it staying cold at the centre. Add pepper and spices to the meat before grilling, but add any salt after cooking. This way it will seize better and stay juicy. Baste all the food to be cooked with a little oil. This is best done with a wide flat basting brush. Then sprinkle with more pepper and herbs (thyme, etc.). Load the grill. • During cooking: Never pierce the food during cooking even when you turn it. This lets the juice out and it becomes dry.

Avoid using shiny tins, they reflect the heat and can spoil your cakes. If your cakes brown too quickly, cover them with grease-proof paper or aluminium foil. Caution: the correct way to use foil is with the shiny side in towards the cake. If not the heat is reflected by the shiny surface and does not penetrate the food. Avoid opening the door during the first 20 to 25 minutes of cooking: soufflés, brioches, sponge cakes, etc. will tend to fall. You can check if cakes are done by pricking the centre with a knife blade or metal knitting needle. If the blade comes out nice and dry, your cake is ready and you can stop cooking. If the blade comes out moist or with bits of cake attached, continue baking but slightly lower the thermostat so that it is finished off without burning.
