THANK YOU FOR BUYING OUR PRODUCT.
Before using the appliance carefully read the Safety Instruction.
USING THE APPLIANCE FOR THE FIRST TIME
HEAT THE OVEN
A new oven may release odours that have been left behind during
manufacturing: this is completely normal.Before starting to cook food,
we therefore recommend heating the oven with it empty in order
to remove any possible odours. Remove any protective cardboard
or transparent film from the oven and remove any accessories from
inside it. Heat the oven to 250 °C for about one hour: The oven must be
empty during this time. Follow the instructions for setting the function
correctly.
Please note: It is advisable to air the room after using the appliance for the
first time.

FUNCTIONS & DAILY USE
1. SELECT A FUNCTION
To select a function, turn the selection knob to the symbol for the
function you require.
OFF
LAMP
To switch on the oven light.
CONVENTIONAL
Function suitable for cooking any type of dish on one shelf.
Preheat the oven to the required temperature and place the food in it
when the set temperature is reached. It is advisable to use the second or
third shelf for cooking. This function is also suitable for cooking frozen
convenience foods; follow the instructions on the food packaging.
CONVECTION BAKE
To bake cakes with liquid filling (sweet or savoury) on a single
level. This function is ideal also for cooking on two levels. If necessary,
switch the positions of the dishes to cook food more evenly.
GRILL
To grill steak, kebabs and sausages, to cook vegetables au gratin
and to toast bread. Preheat the oven for 3-5min. During cooking the
oven door must remain closed. When cooking meat, pour a little water
into the drip tray (on the first level) to reduce smoke and fat spatters.
Ideally the meat should be turned during cooking.
TURBOGRILL
To grill large joints of meat (roast beef and other roast meats).
The oven door must be kept closed during the cooking cycle. When
cooking meat, it is advisable to pour water in the drip-tray placed on
the first level. This will reduce smoke and spattering of fat. Turn the
meat during grilling.
DEFROSTING
This function can be used to speed up the thawing of food at room
temperature. The food should be placed in the oven in its wrapping to avoid
it from drying out.
2. ACTIVATE A FUNCTION
To start the function you have selected, turn the thermostat knob to
set the temperature you require. To interrupt the function at any time,
switch off the oven, turn the selection knob and the thermostat knob to
and .
3. PREHEATING
Once the function has been activated, the LED thermostat will switch
on signalling that the preheating process has begun. At the end of this
process, the LED thermostat switches off indicating that the oven has
reached the set temperature: at this point, place the food inside and
proceed with cooking.
Please note: Placing the food in the oven before preheating has finished
may have an adverse effect on the final cooking result.
HOW TO USE THE HOB
The oven control panel features 4 adjustable knobs (from 0 to 6) that
control hob operation. Turn the control knob of the relevant hotplate
clockwise to the desired power setting (see the instructions supplied
with the hob).
Please note: When using the hotplates for the first time, set the knobs to
6 and allow them to operate for approx. 3 minutes in order to eliminate
odours, placing a pot with an appropriate diameter and half full of water
on each. Do not leave the hot plates turned on when they are empty. Use
pots and pans specifically designed for electric hobs, particularly those
with multiple layer flat-bottoms. Use pans whose bottom diameter is equal
to that of the hotplates, or slightly larger.

RECOMMENDED USE AND TIPS
How to read the cooking table
The table indicates the best function to use for any given food, to
be cooked on one or more shelves at the same time. Cooking times
start from the moment food is placed in the oven, excluding preheating (where required). Cooking temperatures and times are purely
for guidance and will depend on the amount of food and type of
accessory used. Use the lowest recommended values to begin with
and, if the food is not cooked enough, then move on to higher values.
Use the accessories supplied and preferably dark coloured metal cake
tins and oven trays. You can also use pans and accessories in pyrex or
stoneware, but bear in mind that cooking times will be slightly longer.
To obtain best results, carefully follow the advice given in the cooking
table for the choice of accessories (supplied) to be placed on the
various shelves.
Cooking different foods at the same time
Using the “CONVECTION BAKE” function, you can cook different foods
which require the same cooking temperature at the same time (for
example: fish and vegetables), using different shelves. Switch leveles
two-thirds through cooking if necessary. Remove the food which
requires less cooking time and leave food which requires longer
cooking time in the oven.
Desserts
•
Cook delicate desserts with the conventional function on one shelf
only. Use dark coloured metal cake tins and always position them
on the wire shelf supplied. To cook on more than one shelf, select
the forced air function and stagger the position of the cake tins on
the shelves, aiding optimum circulation of the hot air.
•
To check whether a raising cake is cooked, insert a wooden
toothpick into the centre of the cake. If the toothpick comes out
clean, the cake is ready.
•
If using non-stick cake tins, do not butter the edges as the cake
may not rise evenly around the edges.
•
If the cake “sinks” during cooking, set a lower temperature the
next time, perhaps reducing the amount of liquid in the mixture
and mixing more gently.
•
For sweets with moist fillings (cheesecake or fruit pies) use
the “CONVECTION BAKE” function. If the base of the cake is
soggy, lower the shelf and sprinkle the bottom of the cake with
breadcrumbs or biscuit crumbs before adding the filling.
Meat
•
Use any kind of oven tray or pyrex dish suited to the size of the
piece of meat being cooked. For roast joints, it is best to add some
stock to the bottom of the dish, basting the meat during cooking
for added flavour. When the roast is ready, let it rest in the oven for
another 10-15 minutes, or wrap it in aluminium foil.
•
When you want to grill meat, choose cuts with an even thickness
all over in order to achieve uniform cooking results. Very thick
pieces of meat require longer cooking times. To prevent the meat
from burning on the outside, lower the position of the wire shelf,
keeping the food farther away from the grill. Turn the meat two
thirds of the way through cooking.
To collect the cooking juices it is advisable to place a drip-tray with half
a litre of water directly under the grill on which the meat is placed. Topup when necessary.
Turnspit (only in some models)
Use this accessory to evenly roast large pieces of meat and poultry.
Place the meat on the turnspit rod, tying it with string if chicken, and
check that it is secure before inserting the rod in the seat located on
the front wall of the oven and resting it on the respective support. To
prevent smoke and to collect cooking juices, it is advisable to place a
drip-tray with half a litre of water on the first level. The rod has a plastic
handle which must be removed before starting to cook, and used at
the end of cooking to avoid burns when taking the food out of the
oven.
Pizza
Lightly grease the trays to ensure the pizza has a crispy base. Scatter
the mozzarella over the pizza two thirds of the way through cooking.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Make sure that the oven has cooled down before carrying out any maintenance or cleaning. Do not use steam cleaners. Do not
use wire wool, abrasive scourers or abrasive/corrosive cleaning agents, as these could damage the surfaces of the appliance. Wear
protective gloves. The oven must be disconnected from the mains before carrying out any kind of maintenance work.
EXTERIOR SURFACES
Clean surfaces with a damp microfibre cloth. If they are very dirty,
add a few drops of pH-neutral detergent. Finish off with a dry cloth.
Do not use corrosive or abrasive detergents. If any of these products
inadvertently comes into contact with the surfaces of the appliance,
clean immediately with a damp microfibre cloth.
INTERIOR SURFACES
After every use, leave the oven to cool and then clean it, preferably
while it is still warm, to remove any deposits or stains caused by
food residues. To dry any condensation that has formed as a result
of cooking foods with a high water content, leave the oven to cool
completely and then wipe it with a cloth or sponge. Clean the glass in
the door with a suitable liquid detergent.
ACCESSORIES
Soak the accessories in a washing-up liquid solution after use, handling
them with oven gloves if they are still hot. Food residues can be
removed using a washing-up brush or a sponge.
LOWER THE TOP HEATING ELEMENT (Only in some models)
The top heating element of the grill can be lowered to clean the upper
panel of the oven. Remove the side accessory lateral shelves. Pull
the heating element out a little (1) and lower it (2). To reposition the
heating element, lift it up, pulling it slightly towards you, making sure it
comes to rest on the lateral support (3).

REMOVING AND REFITTING THE DOOR
To remove the door, open it fully and lift the catches, pushing them
forwards until they are in the unlock position (1). Close the door as
much as you can. Take a firm hold of the door with both hands – do not
hold it by the handle. Simply remove the door by continuing to close
it while pulling it upwards at the same time until it is released from its
seating (2). Put the door to one side, resting it on a soft surface.
