Introduction
Your belling Cooker
Thank you for purchasing a new belling db90 cooker. Its stylish, practical design
will enhance your kitchen and make cooking a pleasure. It features a large
multifunction oven/Grill (Closed door), a small conventional oven, a storage
compartment, 4 ceramic hob elements and a warming zone. There is also an
electronic clock/timer featuring a minute minder and automatic cooking facilities
(large oven only).
Even if you have used an electric or gas cooker before, it is important that you
read these instructions thoroughly before starting to cook, paying particular
attention to the installation and safety instructions.
Getting Help If you have any problems with installing, operating, or cooking with your belling cooker, please check
through these instructions thoroughly to make sure that you have not missed
anything. If you still need help, then please contact your retailer or place of
purchase.
Please quote the cooker model and serial number with all inquiries. This can be
found on the chassis behind the drop down storage compartment panel.
WARNING! For your own safety, make sure that these instructions on
installation, use and maintenance are followed.
We advise you to keep these instructions in a safe place for future reference.
If you sell or transfer ownership of this product, please pass on these Instructions
to the new owner.
4
Installation Instructions
This appliance has been tested and certified by Advantica Technologies Ltd and
carries the C.E. Mark.
The installation must be in accordance with the current I.E.E. Wiring Regulations.
Unpacking
After unpacking your cooker, make sure that you remove all the packing from the
grill compartment and ovens, and any stickers from the oven doors and the hob.
Examine your cooker for any damage. If there is any damage to your cooker or
anything is missing, please contact your supplier for advice.
Siting/Moving the Cooker
Your cooker is heavy, so be careful when moving or positioning it. Do not try to
move the cooker by pulling on the doors or handles or control panel. The Belling
db90 is designed to 'slot-in' between 600mm deep cabinets, spaced at least
915mm apart. It can also be used freestanding, with a cabinet to one side, in a
corner setting or with its back to a wall. However it must not be situated with
either side closer than 50mm to a combustible wall or cupboard that is higher
than the cooker.
The wall behind the cooker and 450mm above and across the width of the
cooker, should be of an incombustible material or easy clean surface such as
ceramic tiles. Please note, when positioning your cooker against a wall, ensure
there is sufficient clearance for the screw heads on the back panel.
This appliance can be of type X or type Y with regard to protection against
overheating of surrounding surfaces dependant on the location decided by the
user.
Any overhanging surface or cooker hood should be at least 650mm (25½") above
the cooker hob. We do not recommend positioning the cooker below wall
cupboards, as the heat and steam from the cooker may cause damage to the
cupboard and its contents.
Excess steam from the oven, vents out at the top back edge of the cooker, so make
sure that the walls behind and near the cooker are resistant to heat, steam and
condensation.
Your cooker must stand on a flat surface so that when it is in position the hob is
level. The cooker is fitted with rear wheels and will slide into position easily.
Movement of your cooker is most easily achieved by lifting the front, as follows.
Open the oven doors sufficiently to allow a comfortable grip on the underside
front edge of the oven roofs, avoiding grill elements or oven furniture.
“DO NOT LIFT THE COOKER BY THE HANDLES”
Adjust the cooker at the rear to the required height, using the 2 jacking screws
situated behind the rear access cover and secure with the lock-nuts. Position the
cooker and adjust the height at the front with the 2 jacking screws situated at the
front underside. Check that the cooker is level by using a spirit level (adjusting the
jacking screws if necessary). It is important that the cooker is stable and level for
the overall cooking performance.
Whatever the position, remember to leave enough room for the cooker to be
pulled out for cleaning and service.
5
Installation Instructions
Connecting to Electrical
Supply
For your own safety, we recommend that your cooker is installed by a suitably
qualified person.
The cooker should be installed in accordance with the latest edition of the
IEE Regulations.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED!
The cooker must be connected to the correct electrical supply as stated on the
rating plate, through a suitable cooker control unit incorporating a double pole
switch having a contact separation of at least 3mm in all poles, adjacent to (but
not above) the cooker. We recommend that the cooker circuit is rated to 45
Amps with a minimum of 32 Amps.
We also recommend that 6mm² P.V.C. (minimum 4.0mm² - maximum 10.0mm²)
Insulated twin and earth cable is used to connect the cooker control unit.
The power supply cable should conform to BS6004
IMPORTANT:
For access to the mains terminal block and for supply cable connection, it is
necessary to remove the access cover situated at the bottom of the back panel.
The live and neutral positions are marked with the letters L and N respectively,
marked in front of the terminal block. The earth terminal is marked by the earth
symbol. Secure the mains cable using the cable clamp.
Connect the mains cable as follows:Live to terminal L.
Neutral to terminal N
Earth to the earth stud.
Ensure clamping nuts are tightened sufficiently. Allow sufficient cable length for
the cooker to be pulled out for cleaning, but do not let it hang closer than 50mm
(2”) to the floor. The cable can be looped if necessary, but make sure that it is
not kinked or trapped when the cooker is in position.
No part of the appliance (including clock/timer) will operate unless the mains
control unit is live and switched on.
Before you cook for the first time, we recommend that you turn on each element
and hotplate in turn to burn off any odours remaining from manufacture. Simply
operate each hotplate and the grill on maximum for a few minutes and each
oven for about 30 minutes.
User
Instruct the user in the operation of the appliance and hand over the instructions.

For Your Own Safety
When used properly your Belling Cooker is completely safe, but as with any cooker
there are some precautions you must take in its use.
NEVER
•
Never allow anyone except an authorized Belling Service Agent to service or repair
your cooker.
•
Never remove any part of the cooker other than those intended in normal use, or
attempt to modify the cooker in any way.
•
Never use the cooker for commercial catering. It is designed for domestic use.
•

3.
Time of day
Automatic cooking (Large oven only)
Minute minder
The large oven can be controlled by the automatic timer. When the timer has been
set, the small oven remains functional.
Hints on Automatic
Cooking
1. Select foods which will take the same amount of time to cook and require
approximately the same temperature.
2. Set the oven timer so that the food has just finished or about to finish cooking
on your return to the oven. This will ensure the food has not cooled down and
does not require re-heating before serving.
3. Food should be as cold as possible when it goes into the oven, ideally straight
from the refrigerator. Frozen meat and poultry should be thawed thoroughly
before being placed into the oven.
4. We advise that warm food should never be placed in the oven if there is to be a
delay period. Stews prepared by frying the meat and vegetables should be
cooked as soon as possible.
5. We advise dishes containing left over cooked poultry or meat (eg. Shepherds
pie) should not be cooked automatically if there is to be a delay period.
6. Stews and joints should be cooked by the long slow method, so that the delay
start is kept to a minimum.
7. On warm days, to prevent harmful bacterial growth in certain foods (eg.
Poultry, joints etc.) the delay start should be kept to a minimum.
8. Wine or beer may ferment and cream may curdle during the delay period, so it
is best that these ingredients are added just before serving.
9. Foods that discolour should be protected by coating in fat or tossing in water
(to which lemon juice has just been added) prior to placing the food into the
oven.
10. Dishes containing liquid should not be overfilled. This will prevent boiling over.
11. Foods should be well sealed (but not airtight) in a container to prevent the loss
of liquid during cooling. Aluminium foil gives a good seal.
12. Ensure food is cooked thoroughly before serving.

Automatic Cooking (Large Oven)
Rules to follow when
cooking automatically
When planning your meal, remember that the oven control setting
refers to the center of the oven - it is warmer above and cooler below.
1.
Food should be as cold as possible when it goes into the oven, ideally
straight from the refrigerator.
2.
Frozen meat and poultry should be thawed thoroughly before it is put into
the oven.
3.
The automatic timer should not be used in hot weather because of the
possible growth of food poisoning organisms.
4.
NEVER use the automatic timer to re-heat Cook-Chill dishes.
5.
Never leave food in the oven to cool slowly after cooking.
Serve immediately or refrigerate.
6.
Dishes containing left over cooked meat or poultry, for example shepherds
pie, dishes containing eggs, cooked rice or seafood should not be cooked
automatically if there is to be a delay period.
7.
Warm food should never be placed in the oven if there is to be a delay
period. Stews prepared by frying the meat and vegetables should be cooked
as soon as possible or refrigerated until loading the oven.
8.
Try to set the stop time for a period beyond your anticipated return.
9.
DO NOT leave food for an automatic program in a warm oven, i.e. one that
has just been used manually.
10. It is advisable to cover dishes where possible either with a lid or foil to
prevent the transfer of odours. If the food is to be served golden brown, it
may be uncovered or have the lid removed for a quick browning before
serving.
11. Dishes containing liquid should not be filled too full to prevent boiling over.
12. To prevent discoloration of certain fruit and vegetables such as apples,
pears, turnips and parsnips, a little lemon juice should be added to the
cooking liquid.
13. Potatoes should be par-boiled or brushed with fat to prevent discoloration
during delay time.
14. Wine or beer may ferment and cream may curdle during the delay period,
so it is best to add these ingredients just before serving.
16
Using The Ceramic Hob
Ceramic Hob
WARNING! If any crack should appear on the hob, isolate the cooker immediately
from the mains supply. Never use any part of the cooker. Contact your Belling
Service Agent.
Under no circumstances should the hob be used with aluminium foil in contact
with the hob surface, as damage will occur.
The following hotplates are located beneath patterned cooking areas:
The left front ceramic hotplate is rated at 1.65/1.8kW Fastlite.
The left rear ceramic hotplate is rated at 1.38/1.5kW Fastlite.
The right rear dual ceramic hotplate is rated at 2.2/2.4kW (1.38/1.5kW Part)
The right front ceramic hotplate is rated at 1.2kW.
The extreme right warming zone element is rated at 0.190kW
The ceramic hotplate cooking areas change colour when heated (become red)
indicating which element is energised. The cooking area returns to its original
colour when the element is switched off and cools.
Warning
Even though the cooking area has returned to its original colour it may still be hot.
Hob Hot Light
This will operate soon after any of the four ceramic hotplate controls have been
turned on and will remain illuminated until the ceramic surface has cooled.
Warning! The warming zone area is not linked to the hob hot light. This area
may still be hot when the hob hot light has switched off.
Hotplate Controls
The control provides fully variable heat control selecting any number between
(Single Circuit)
1 (Minimum) and 6 (Maximum).
Hotplate Control
The control provides fully variable heat control selecting any number between
(Dual Circuit)
1 (Minimum) and 5 (Maximum) on both “Full” and “Reduced power”.
Use of Controls
To reduce the heat to cook more slowly or simmer, turn the knob to a lower
setting which will vary according to size and type of saucepan, the amount of
and type of food and whether or not a lid is fitted. Pans can be placed on the
unheated areas of the panel when cooking is finished and before serving food. It
is inadvisable at any time to leave a heating element switched on without a pan
in position, as this wastes energy and could make soil or rub-off from aluminium
pans more difficult to remove. To protect elements against over-heating, safety
cutouts have been incorporated with each element. After several minutes with
the control at maximum setting the safety cutout switches the element Off and
On continuously, thus preventing any adverse effects that may be caused by an
excessive build up of heat in the cooking area. The hotplate will be off when the
knob is at position ‘0’
17
Using The Ceramic Hob
Warming Zone
Adjacent to the hotplates, on the right hand side, is a warming zone. This provides a
constant heated area with an average surface temperature of 110ºC (Max 135ºC).
The warming zone is operated by depressing and releasing the on/off switch on the
control panel and is suitable for the following: Plate and dish warming - Keeping food hot
- Melting ingredients - Warming rolls and croissants - Keeping coffee and sauces hot.

Using the correct pans and utensils will result in maximum contact with the
hob and maximum efficiency as with any type of electric hob.
Utensils with rough bases - lightweight utensils with thin, distorted or uneven
bases – lightweight enamelled steel utensils – cast iron utensils – utensils with
bases that are recessed, scrolled (like a gramophone record) or ridged – utensils
with concave bases greater than 1mm, as this will reduce performance –
utensils with convex bases – glass ceramic utensils – lightweight saucepans with
plain thin copper bases.
Note: All copper pans are excellent conductors of heat and are hard wearing
and strong, but they need quite a lot of care. They can be very heavy and do
not usually have completely flat bases. The interiors are usually lined with a
different material such as tin.
A stainless steel pan with a sandwich base of aluminium and copper is an
excellent conductor of heat and is suitable for use on ceramic hobs, providing
they are used in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. When
using this type of pan extra care should be taken to ensure that the base of the
pan is cleaned and the hob is cleaned and conditioned after each use. Failure
to clean properly will result in permanent marking of the hob.
Safety Requirements for
Deep Fat Frying
IMPORTANT:
As there could be some fire risk attached to the heating of oil,
particularly for deep fat frying, cooking utensils containing oil must not be
left unattended (e.g. to answer the telephone) or in close proximity to hotplates.
In the unfortunate event of a fire it will assist in smothering the flames if the pan
lid is replaced, and the power supply is switched OFF.
1
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Use a deep pan, large enough to completely cover the appropriate heating
area.
Never fill the pan more than one-third full of fat or oil.
Never leave oil or fat unattended during the heating or cooking period.
Do not try to fry too much food at a time, especially frozen food. This only
lowers the temperature of the oil or fat too much, resulting in greasy food.
Always dry food thoroughly before frying, and lower it slowly into the hot oil
or fat. Frozen foods, in particular, will cause frothing and spitting, if added
too quickly.
Never heat fat, or fry, with a lid on the pan.
Keep the outside of the pan, clean and free from streaks of oil or fat.

Main Multifunction Oven & Grill
Operation
The main oven, on the left hand side of the cooker, is multifunctional and
incorporates both fan and conventional oven/grill facilities.
For “Light Only” and “Defrost” turn the multifunction selector switch to the
required function only (Thermostat remains in the Off position).
The main oven light and fan (If selected) will come on.
If the thermostat is accidentally switched on during the “defrost” setting, it will
only activate the neon on the control panel. There will be no power
transferred to the oven elements.
For “Fan Oven”, “Conventional Oven”, “Fan Grilling”, “Full Grill” and “Half
Grill”, turn the multifunction selector switch to the required function. The main
oven light (plus fan if selected) will come On. Set the main oven thermostat to
the required temperature. The neon indicator lamp on the control panel will
immediately come On and will go out when the required temperature is
reached, subsequently switching On and Off at intervals to indicate that the
correct temperature is being maintained. The fan (If selected) and oven light
will operate continuously until the multifunction switch is turned Off or the
timer is set to Auto.
NOTE: If the oven light and fan (If selected) does not come ON when the
multifunction switch is turned, Check that the electricity supply is switched On
and that the timer is set for manual operation. If the neon indicator does not
come On when the thermostat control is turned, check that a function has been
selected.
To turn off the multifunction switch, turn the control knob either way to the
zero position.
To turn off the oven thermostats, turn the control knobs fully anti-clockwise to
the zero position.
Note: If you find that the oven is getting hotter than normal, when using a
particular temperature, then the thermostat may need to be replaced.
WARNING:-
DURING USE THE APPLIANCE BECOMES HOT. CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO
AVOID TOUCHING HEATING ELEMENTS INSIDE THE OVEN.

Main Multifunction
Oven & Grill
Fan Oven
Rear element & Fan. Use the main oven thermostat to control the temperature.
Since a fan oven heats up more quickly, and generally cooks food at a
lower
temperature than a conventional oven, pre-heating is often
unnecessary.
However, foods such as bread, scones, Yorkshire pudding
etc. do benefit from being placed in a pre-heated oven. The charts on pages 28
and 29 are a guide only, giving approximate cooking temperatures and times.
To suit personal taste and requirements it may be necessary to increase or
decrease temps by 10ºC.
Because the fan oven cooks so efficiently, we recommend that when cooking
recipes not designed for a fan oven, you reduce the temperature by about 25ºC
and the time by about 10 minutes in the hour. If large quantities are being
cooked, it will be necessary to increase the cooking time somewhat to
compensate for the extra load.
Unless otherwise indicated in the charts, food is placed in a cold oven, i.e.
without pre-heating. If food is placed in an already hot oven, the suggested
cooking time should be reduced, depending on the type and quantity of food
being cooked.
It should be noted that at the end of the cooking period there might be a puff
of steam when the oven door is opened, this will disperse in a few seconds and
is a perfectly normal characteristic of an oven with a good door seal.
Since the distribution of heat in the fan oven is very even, most foods will cook
satisfactorily on any shelf position, but the shelves should be evenly spaced.
To ensure even circulation do not use meat pans larger than 415 x 320 (16½” x
12½”) and baking trays no larger than 330 x 255 (13” x 10”), these should be
positioned centrally on the oven shelf.
-
Do not fit shelves upside down
-
Never use more than three shelves in the oven (Two supplied with the
cooker), as air circulation will be restricted.
-
Food or cooking utensils should not be placed on the floor of the oven
-
To avoid unnecessary cleaning, rod shelves not in use should be removed
from the oven.

with a large roasting tin on the oven base to collect the juices. It is important to
check that the bird and foil DO NOT overhang the burner at the back of the

The maximum weight of a turkey that can be accommodated is 25lbs (11.5kg)
provided it will fit within the constraints of the oven.

approximate cooking temperatures and times. To suit personal taste and
requirements it may be necessary to increase or decrease temps by 10ºC.
If large quantities are being cooked, it will be necessary to increase the cooking
time somewhat to compensate for the extra load.
Anything requiring long slow cooking such as Casseroles and rich fruitcakes can
be put into a cold oven. Satisfactory results in a cold oven can also be obtained
with creamed mixture, rich pastries or yeast mixtures, but for perfection we
recommend preheating the oven for about 20 minutes.
Shelves should be evenly spaced. To ensure even circulation do not use meat
pans larger than 415 x 320 (16½” x 12½”) and baking trays no larger than 330
x 255 (13” x 10”), these should be positioned centrally on the oven shelf.

Fan Grill
If large quantities are being cooked, it will be necessary to increase the cooking
time somewhat to compensate for the extra load.
The food is placed directly on a shelf positioned low in the oven and the meat/grill
pan supplied is positioned on the floor of the oven to catch juices. For best
results and even cooking, it is necessary to turn the food occasionally. For small
items of food it may be advantageous to place the food support grid from the
grill/meat pan on the shelf. This will help to prevent food from dropping through
the shelf.

THE GRILL WILL NOT OPERATE WHEN THE OVEN TIMER IS SET!
CAUTION
During use the appliance becomes hot. Care should be taken to avoid
touching heating elements inside the oven.
Grilling should never be undertaken with the grill/oven door open.
Never operate the grill without the grill roof in place.
WARNING! Accessible parts may become hot when the grill is in use.
DO NOT allow children near the appliance when the grill is in use.
DO NOT cover the grill pan or grid with aluminum foil as this can hold fat,
intensify the heat and create a fire hazard.

Main Multifunction Oven & Grill
Grill Pan & Grid
The grill pan is positioned centrally on a shelf and pushed back to the shelf stop.
Always use oven gloves when pulling the pan forward to turn/serve.
The height of the grill pan is determined by the shelf position. The top position is
most suited for toasting or sealing food. To avoid burning, or excessive smoking
and spitting, make sure that the food is not too close to the element.
For thicker foods requiring longer cooking time, turn the thermostat to a lower
setting after sealing both sides on max setting.
The handle is detachable. To fit, gently squeeze the ends of the wire handle and
insert from below into the grill pan bracket. Do not use the grill pan handle to
tip the grill pan sideways, for example, to empty fat or crumbs from the pan, as
the handle may become detached from its fixing bracket.
CAUTION! WHEN REMOVING THE GRILL PAN HANDLE ALWAYS USE
OVEN GLOVES AS THE WIRE MAY BE HOT.
To obtain best results always use the wire grid. This will ensure that foods do not
cook in their own fats and will prevent any distortion of the grill pan. It can be
used either way up to position the food nearer to or further away from the grill
element.
The heated area of the inner grill element is in the center of the grid, although
there is enough spread of heat around this area to cook items such as tomatoes
and mushrooms which require lower cooking temperatures.

Storage and Reheating of Food.
It is vitally important to strictly adhere to the basic principles of food handling
and hygiene to prevent the possibility of bacterial growth.
'Cook - Chill Dishes'
1.
If food is to be frozen or not served immediately, cool it in a clean container
as quickly as possible.
2.
Thaw frozen food completely in the refrigerator before reheating.
3.
Re-heat food thoroughly and quickly either on the hotplate or in a hot oven,
Mk.6 and then serve immediately.
4.
Only re-heat food once.
These should always be placed in a pre-heated oven ideally on the first or second
shelf position. Follow the packet instructions for the cooking time.

Note:
If soft tub margarine is used for cake making, we would recommend using the all in one method and to
reduce the temperature by 10ºC.
Temperatures recommended in this chart refer to cakes made with block margarine or butter only.
The most accurate method of testing the readiness of joints of meat or whole poultry is to insert a meat

Care and Cleaning
In the interests of both safety and hygiene your Belling db90 needs to be kept
clean. A build-up of grease or fat from cooking could cause a fire hazard.
WARNING! For your own safety, always switch off your cooker at the mains
supply and allow to cool before cleaning.
Never use excessive amounts of water to clean your cooker, and remember that
your cooker is heavy - take care when pulling it out for access.
To move the cooker forward, open both oven doors and with two hands
positioned under the roof of the compartments, lift and pull forward. Replace by
pushing the cooker backwards. Check that the cooker is level. Take care to ensure
that any floor covering is not damaged.
Door Removal
CLEANING
Glass doors
Stainless Steel
Vitreous Enamel
The doors are designed for easy removal. Open fully so that the door is at right
angles to the oven cavity, slacken the screw holding the securing bracket (see fig)
and slide the bracket towards the center of the oven. Lift the door up off its
hinges and pull forward. The inner glass will now slide out for cleaning.
To replace the doors reverse the procedure.
Please note that that the inner glass is specially treated and requires replacing
with the correct face to the oven (The Non-printed face).
When replacing, take care to ensure that the hinge pins line up with the holes in
the extrusion and that the door has dropped correctly into position before
closing the door.
DO NOT FORCE THE FITTING AS THIS WILL CAUSE DAMAGE.
Take particular care not to damage the inner surface of the door inner glass that
is coated with a heat reflective layer. Do not use scouring pads or abrasive
powder, as these will scratch the glass. Ensure that the glass panel is not
subjected to any sharp mechanical blows.
Stubborn stains can be removed by using a fine steel wool pad. For slight soiling,
the inner glass panel may be cleaned while still warm, without removing it from
the door. After cleaning, rinse with a soft cloth.
(Control panel & Rear vent).
Wipe or spray a proprietary stainless steel cleaner onto the surface. Leave for
a few seconds and polish with a lint free cloth.
(Oven bases, Small Oven rear panel, Small Oven roof panel & Storage panel).
Wipe over with a cloth wrung out in hot soapy water, then wipe with a cloth
wrung out in clear water. Dry with a soft clean cloth. Stubborn stains can be
removed with a cream, paste, liquid cleaner or by rubbing with fine steel wool or
soap pads. The Grill pan/meat pan and baking tray may be washed in a
dishwasher.

Care and Cleaning
Paint
(Hob frame, Front supports, Control panel under-tray, Rear vent & Plinth).
Wash with a cloth wrung out in hot soapy water only.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVES
Ovens and Grill
The rod shelves, small oven roof, and other enamel parts of the ovens can be
cleaned using household cream cleanser with a nylon pad or sponge. Heavier
soiling may require the use of a proprietary oven cleaner or steel wool pad, but
do not allow these to contact the Cook-clean enamel, the hob or hob surround,
or any of the door seals or plastic parts of the cooker.
Only use oven cleaners which carry the Vitreous Enamel Development Council's
Approvals symbol, and always follow the manufacturers instructions for use.
Ceramic Hob
WARNING! If any crack should appear on the hob, isolate the cooker immediately
from the mains supply. Never use any part of the cooker. Contact your Belling
Service Agent.
The ceramic hob is very hard wearing and with normal care should remain in
good condition. However, it is important that any spillage is dealt with before
the hob is used again, otherwise it will become baked on.
Once the hob has cooled, remove any spillage or soiling with a metal spatula,
palette knife or scraper, then use a little Belling ceramic hob cleaner &
conditioner on a damp cloth to remove any marks. Wipe off the residue of the
cleaner with a soft damp cloth and polish the hob with a soft lint free cloth. It
is important that the hob is cleaned regularly with Belling ceramic hob cleaner
& conditioner, as it provides a protective film to keep the hob in good condition
and assist in keeping the hob clean.
Whilst it is recommended that normal cleaning is carried out when the hob has
cooled, if jam, fruit or anything with a high sugar content is spilled on the hob,
or plastic or aluminium is melted onto the hob, clean it off immediately, as
damage to the hob can result. Switch off the hob and use a metal spatula,
palette knife or scraper to remove the spillage. TAKE CARE, as the spillage and
the hob may be very hot. When the hob has cooled, clean as usual with Belling
ceramic hob cleaner & conditioner.
Do not use scouring powders or paste, wire wool scouring pads or oven
cleaners on the ceramic hob as these can cause damage to the hob surface.
If you require further Belling ceramic hob cleaner & conditioner, please contact
Belling Customer Helpline on 01709 579902 or Spares Dept on 01709 579907.

Care and Cleaning
Belling Cookclean Panels
Both ovens have side runners that are coated with special enamel which will
absorb and gradually vaporize any splashes, which occur during cooking. This
surface coating, which can be recognised by its matt finish, may be damaged by
using aerosol oven cleaners, oven pads, detergents or scouring powders and their
use is not recommended.
Any particularly heavy soiling or splashing may indicate the cooking temperature
has been high, or that excess fat or water has been used when roasting. It can be
removed by 'blotting' the surface with a paper towel or soft sponge, or by
running the oven empty at 230°C for about 30 minutes.
Warning!
Under these conditions the surfaces may become hotter than usual
and children should be kept away.
Whilst normal cleaning can be carried out with these panels in place, they can be
removed for cleaning manually, or for cleaning the rest of the oven interior. First,
remove the oven shelves. The side runners can then be removed from the ovens
by slackening the 2 screws on each panel, and then lifting them out.
To clean these Cook-clean panels by hand, scrub them with a nylon pad or brush,
using cold water and a little gentle detergent (although this may cause some
discoloration). Rinse in cold water and blot them dry with a paper towel or
sponge. Do not rub the surface too dry as this can damage the Cook-clean finish.
After cleaning, replace the panels immediately and run both the ovens at
maximum setting for about 30 minutes to prevent deterioration of the enamel.
Do not clean them in a dishwasher.
