and arrange a Service call.
Important:
Data badge
■ Do not use the ceramic glass hob
as a work surface or chopping
board, as it will damage it, and if
any plastic utensils come into
contact with a warm hob, they
may melt onto it.
On the bottom of the front frame
behind the oven door.
Before using the hob for the
first time
■ Do not use the ceramic hotplate
surface for storage.
Before using the hob for the first
time, we recommend that you apply a
thin coating of cleaner conditioner eg; “Hob Brite” by Homecare*, and
polish the surface with a clean dry
cloth. Follow the instructions given in
the cleaning section.
■ As pans are on a smooth surface,
they will move easily if knocked
accidentally; turning pan handles
so they are not overhanging the
edge of the hob, will help prevent
this happening, and keep them out
of the reach of children.
* Homecare products are available
mail order - ✆ 0208 871 5027
■ Be careful when cooking foods in
salted water, or foods containing
large amounts of sugar or syrup,
if they are spilt onto hot areas of
the hob they may damage it.
To switch on the hob
Turn the hotplate selected control
clockwise to the required setting. To
switch off, return to the “off” position.
Use pans which are large enough
to avoid overflows onto the
ceramic glass hob.
■ Lift pans onto and off the hob, rather
than sliding them across the surface,
to avoid marks and scratches.
The hot hob light
The hot hob light comes on when one
of the hotplates is switched on, and
stays on for a short while after the last
hotplate is switched off to indicate that
the hob may still be warm.

who is a member of the N.I.C.E.I.C.
and who will comply with the I.E.E.
and local regulation.
Cable
clamp
1. Access to the mains terminal is
gained by opening the terminal
block cover at the rear of the
appliance (use a small flat-bladed
screwdriver).
Cast iron, stainless steel, or enamelled
steel pans are all suitable for use on
ceramic glass and solid plate hobs.
When cooking with fat or oil, never
leave unattended.
Aluminium pans will give good cooking
results but care must be taken in their use.
If they are slid across the surface of a
ceramic hob they tend to leave visible
marks which can be difficult to remove.
Turn pan handles to a safe position,
so they are out of reach of children,
not overhanging the appliance, and
cannot be caught accidentally.
Certain types of copper based pans may
become slightly concave when heated,
which can result in slower cooking times.
Choice of pans
Do not use double pans, rim based
pans, old misshapen pans or any pan
which is unstable when placed on a
flat surface.
Glass pans can be used, but if used on
halogen rings, the glow from the heating
areas transmitted through transparent
glass may cause some visual discomfort.
Use pans with a flat base of minimum
100mm / 4ins diameter and maximum
280mm / 11ins diameter which are
stable in use. The correct size of pan
base will ensure maximum contact
with the hob and rapid cooking times.
Pan bases that are much smaller or much
larger than the hotplate - eg; by 50mm
- will result in slower cooking times.
2. Connection should be made with
6.0mm2 twin and earth cable.
3. First strip the wires, then push the
cable through the cable clamp in
the terminal block cover.
Pan bases should be thick, flat and
smooth, to ensure maximum heat
contact with the hob, maximum heat
conduction and rapid cooking times.
Pans with dull or dark coloured bases
will give the quickest cooking results.
Pans with thin, dented or ridge bases
can result in very slow cooking times
and should not be used.
Commercial simmering aids should
not be used as they create excessive
temperatures that can damage the
surface and may cause a hazard.
4. Connect the cable to the terminal
block and tighten the cable clamp
screw (see diagram).
Pans with highly polished bases reflect
heat back into the hob causing the
ceramic hob hotplate to cycle on and
off rapidly, which slows down cooking.
When buying new pans, always refer
to the pan manufacturer’s guidelines.
5. Close the terminal box, ensuring
that the cover is engaged on the
locking tabs.
Certain makes / brands of pressure
cookers may not be suitable for use on
ceramic hobs - they do not come to
pressure.
Stainless steel pressure
cookers will give optimum results.
Always use pans which are large
enough to prevent spillage, especially
for deep frying, making jam or cooking
with sugar or syrup based substances.
Trivets, round based woks, heat
diffuser pads and over-sized pans are
not recommended.

When you have finished
cooking check that all controls
are in the off position.

Using the Grill
Caution: Accessible parts may
be hot when grill is used, young
children should be kept away.
Installation Instructions
Detachable grill pan handle
trivet
To switch on the grill
Open the top oven / grill door.
Whilst every care is taken to eliminate
burrs and raw edges from this product,
please take care when handling - we
recommend the use of protective
gloves during installation.
Clearances
This cooker may be fitted flush to
base units. However, for models with
side opening doors, we recommend a
side clearance of 60mm between the
cooker and any side wall to allow the
door to be opened fully.
Moving the cooker
Turn the top oven control knob past the
oven temperature markings to either
the single
grill symbol, or the dual
grill symbol.
grill pan
The dual grill uses all of the top
element, and the single economy grill
setting uses the inner part o f t h e
e l e m e n t only.
handle handle position
indicators
Place the handle over the edge of the
grill pan, at the narrow side edges.
Slide the handle to the centre, and
locate between the handle position
indicators.
Important: The door must be kept
open when the grill is used.
Note that the grill will not operate if
the top oven is switched on.
Preheating
Always preheat the grill for about
3 minutes for best cooked results.
No shelf or overhang or cooker hood
shall be closer than a minimum of
650mm, but check with cooker hood
manufacturer’s recommendations.
Please note that this appliance is very
heavy. Take care if the appliance
needs to be lifted during installation always use an appropriate method of
lifting.
The cooker must have a side
clearance above hob level of 90mm
up to a height of 400mm.
Do not attempt to move the cooker by
pulling on the doors or handles. Open
the door and grasp the frame of the
cooker, taking care that the door does
not shut on your fingers.
Dimensions
All sizes are nominal, and some
variation is to be expected.
The
‘depth’ of the cooker, as given below,
is to the front of the door and
excluding knobs and handles.
Take care to avoid damage to soft or
uneven floor coverings when moving
the appliance. Some cushioned vinyl
floor coverings may not be designed
to withstand sliding appliances without
marking or damage.

Depth:
Height (adjustable):
The cooling fan
When the grill is switched on, you will
hear the cooling fan come on - this
keeps the fascia and control knobs of
the appliance cool during grilling
only. The fan will continue to operate
for a period after the grill control has
been switched off.
The handle should be removed from
the pan during grilling, to prevent
overheating.
The handle is designed for removing /
inserting the grill pan under the grill
when grilling.
This is a type X appliance regarding
installation requirements.
Important: Ensure that you route
all mains cables well clear of any
adjacent heat source.
If cleaning the grill pan when it is hot,
use oven gloves to move it. Do not use
the handle to pour hot fats from the
grill pan.
Food for grilling should be positioned
centrally on the trivet.

Cleaning
Using the Grill
Care and maintenance
Discolouration of the hob
Grilling
Aluminium foil
Before using the hob for the first
time, apply a thin coating of cleaner
conditioner (eg; “Hob Brite”, by
Homecare*) to the ceramic glass, and
polish the surface with a clean cloth.
Do not use a dishcloth or dish sponge to
wipe the hob - this can leave a film of
detergent on the surface which will
discolour the hob next time a heating
area is used. Clean cloths kept for the
cleaning of the hob can be used.
The grill has two fixed heat setting.
Using aluminium foil to cover the grill
pan, or putting items wrapped in foil
under the grill creates a fire hazard,
and the high reflectivity may damage
the grill element.
The conditioner gives a protective
covering to the ceramic glass which not
only makes the hob easier to clean, but
also ensures that you will gain maximum
life out of this product. Occasional use
will help prevent the build up of mineral
deposits which can cause discolouration
of the hob surface.
Do not use too much cleaner conditioner
- only a thin coating is required, any
excess may burn on and discolour the
hob when it is next in use.
If persistent stains or marks remain on
the ceramic glass surface, it can be
cleaned using a mild cream cleaner - eg;
“Cif” - or a ceramic hob scraper. This
will also remove any accumulated salts
or minerals before they have an opportunity to discolour the ceramic glass.
Wipe clean with a damp paper towel or
clean damp cloth and re-apply cleaner
conditioner.
• Homecare products are available mail
order from ✆ 0208 871 5027.
For grilling smaller quantities of food,
the (single element) economy grill can
be utilised. For grilling larger quantities of food, the (dual element) full grill
can be utilised.
The speed of grilling can be controlled
by selecting a higher or lower shelf
position.
For toasting, and for cooking foods
such as bacon, sausages or steaks,
use a higher shelf position.
For thicker foods such as chops or
chicken joint pieces, use a middle to
low shelf position.
Grilling may also be adjusted by
changing the grill pan trivet position,
as detailed below.
There are three different grilling
positions, as the grill trivet - which is in
the grill pan - may be inverted to give
a high or low position or the trivet may
be removed.
1. The HIGH trivet position is suitable
for toasting bread.
2. The LOW trivet position is suitable for
grilling all types of meat and fish.
3. With the grill trivet removed the
food is placed directly on the base
of the grill pan - eg; when cooking
whole fish or browning dishes
such as cauliflower cheese.

Using the Top Oven
Accessible parts may be hot
when the oven is used. Young
children should be kept away.
When using the top oven
As part of the cooking process, hot air
is expelled through a vent at the top of
the oven(s). When opening the oven
door, care should be taken to avoid
any possible contact with potentially hot
air, since this may cause discomfort to
people with sensitive skin. We recommend
that you hold the underneath of the
oven door handle.
The top oven is a conventional electric
oven.
To turn on the top oven
Turn the top oven / grill control knob
to the required temperature setting.
Important: Never put items directly
on the base of the oven with foil, as this
may cause the element to overheat.
Always position items on the shelf.
The red thermostat indicator will
come on until the selected temperature
is reached and then go off; it will
turn on and off periodically as the
thermostat operates to maintain the
selected temperature.
Caution: The top element gets
extremely hot when in use, so take
extra care to avoid touching it.
To switch off, return the control knob
to the “off” position.
The cooling fan
When the top oven is switched on, you
will hear the cooling fan come on - this
keeps the fascia and control knobs of
the appliance cool during cooking
only. The fan will continue to operate
for a period after the oven control has
been switched off.
Preheating the top oven
The oven must be preheated when
cooking frozen or chilled foods, and
we recommend preheating for yeast
mixtures, batters, soufflés and whisked
sponges. Preheat the oven until the
indicator light switches off for the first
time - this will take up to 20 minutes
depending on the temperature selected.
If you are not preheating the oven,
the cooking times in the baking guide
may need to be extended, as they are
based on a preheated oven.

Cleaning
before sliding back in.
Painted, plastic and metal finish
parts (if fitted)
Ceramic glass hotplate
& HANDLE, GRILL PAN
PANEL & CONTROL KNOBS
OVEN DOOR FRAME
HANDLE, FACIA
Do not use abrasive powder cleaners,
“Brillo” pads, metal wire, detergents,
bleaches, bath stain removers, or chemical
oven cleaners; all these product types will
damage the ceramic glass.
Only use a clean cloth wrung out in
hot soapy water.
Glass parts
The following recommendations will help
to keep the ceramic glass surface bright
and clean.
GLASS DOOR PANELS, LID GLASS
Do not use abrasives or polishes as
they will scratch and damage the glass.
Allow the hob to cool.
Use a mild cream cleaner - eg; “Cif”.
Rinse away excess cleaner and dry
with a soft cloth.
Use a dampened paper towel or clean damp
cloth to apply a small dab of cleaner
conditioner to clean each heating area.
Warning: Do not operate the appliance
without the glass panel correctly fitted.
Use another paper towel or a clean dry
soft cloth to wipe dry, and then polish the
whole glass surface.
Important: the inner door glass
panel can be removed for cleaning but
it must be replaced the right way up
(so the reflective side - if fitted - faces
inwards), and pushed fully in to the
stop position. To remove the glass
panel, open the door wide, hold the
top and bottom edges and slide out.
To remove any stubborn marks or heavy
soiling, a non scratching, mild cream
cleaner may be used - eg; “Cif”.
Alternatively, a ceramic hob scraper may
be used (available from Homecare*).

Cooking times
Always let the appliance cool
before cleaning.
Use a mild cream cleaner - eg; ”Cif”.
These times are based on cooking in a
preheated oven.
Vitreous Enamel parts
Stubborn marks may be removed with
a moistened “Brillo” pad.
Some cooking operations generate a
considerable amount of grease. This,
combined with spillage, can become a
hazard if allowed to accumulate on
the cooker through lack of cleaning.
In extreme cases this may amount to
misuse of the appliance and could
invalidate your guarantee.
The pan supports and grill pan may be
cleaned in a dishwasher, or with a
nylon brush in hot soapy water.
MAIN OVEN SIDES AND BACK
We recommend that the appliance is
cleaned after open roasting, and also
after roasting at temperatures higher than
200˚C, to help prevent a build up of
fats. Use of a trivet in a roasting tin when
roasting will help reduce fat splashing.
Do not use caustic, corrosive or
abrasive cleaning products, products
containing bleach, coarse wire wool
or any hard implements, as they will
damage the surfaces.
Caution: Most types of cleaning
agent will damage these surfaces.
All parts of the hob can be safely
cleaned with a cloth wrung out in hot
soapy water.
Only use a few drops of washing up
liquid in hot water. Wipe the surfaces
with a clean cloth wrung out in hot soapy
water - if larger splashes of fat do not
readily disappear, scrub the area with
a nylon brush or nylon pan scourer
and hot soapy water. Rinse well and
heat the oven to dry the surfaces.

on dishes made with block margarine.
If soft tub margarine is used, it may be
necessary to reduce the temperature

temperature setting to that shown in
the guide, the recipe instruction should
be followed.
These cooking times are approximate,
because the size and type of cooking
dish will influence time as personal

Oven shelves
■ Make sure that frozen foods are
thoroughly THAWED before cooking.
The oven shelf must be positioned with
the upstand at the rear of the oven and
facing upwards.
■ Do not slow cook joints of meat or
poultry weighing more than 21⁄4kg
/ 41⁄2lb.
You have started cooking a meal or
dish in the oven, and want to set the
time for the oven to switch off.
Position baking trays and roasting tins
on the middle of the shelves, and leave
one clear shelf position between
shelves, to allow for circulation of heat.
■ For roasting joints of meat or poultry,
and for pot roasts preheat the
oven to 160˚C and cook for 30
minutes, then adjust the oven
control to the 110˚C - 120˚C (slow
setting) for the remainder of the
cooking time.
Baking tray and roasting tins
For best cooked results and even
browning, the maximum size baking
trays and roasting tins that should be
used are as follows;
Baking tray
■ Slow cooking times will be about
3 times as long as conventional
cooking times.
■ Do not open the oven door unnecessarily during slow cooking, as
this will result in heat loss at low
temperatures.
350mm x 280mm
This size of baking tray will hold up to
16 small cakes.
Roasting tin
370mm x 320mm
■ Always use dishes with tightly
fitting lids. To rectify badly fitting
lids, place foil over the dish
underneath the lid.
We recommend that you use good
quality cookware. Poor quality trays
and tins may warp when heated,
leading to uneven baking results.
Aluminium foil
Use foil only to cover food or cooking
dishes, using foil to cover the shelves
or oven base creates a fire hazard.

Cooking with a fanned oven
Notes:
As this is a high efficiency oven,
you may notice the emission of
steam from the oven when the
door is opened. Please take
care when opening the door.
When 2 or more shelves are being
used, it may be necessary to increase
the cooking time slightly.
The minute minder (bell) symbol will
appear on the display.
Preheating is generally not necessary
as a fan oven warms up quickly.
You can cancel the minute minder at
any time by pressing the minute
minder button and the minus button
until the display returns to 0.00.
There is no flavour transference in a
fan oven, which means you can cook
strong smelling foods such as fish at
the same time as mild foods - eg; milk
puddings.
Releasing the minus button after the
tone has sounded will automatically
select that tone.
The tone will sound at the end of the
time set - to cancel the tone, press the
minute minder button.
Although you need to keep in mind the
points ‘To help the air circulate freely’
with careful choice of dishes and tins,
it is possible to cook a complete meal,
and perhaps something else for the
freezer, in the oven at the same time.
There are no zones of heat in a fan oven
as the convection fan at the back of
the oven ensures an even temperature
throughout the oven. This makes it
ideal for batch baking - eg; when
planning a party or stocking the
freezer - as all the items will be cooked
within the same length of time.
Press the minute minder button, then
use the plus and minus buttons to set
the required time.
Release the minus button and press it
again to listen to the second tone, etc.
Because the 2 oven shelves are wider
than in many ovens, it is possible to
cook 2 items per shelf - eg; 2 victoria
sandwiches or 2 casseroles.
If you are used to cooking with a
conventional oven you will find a
number of differences to cooking with
a fan oven which will require a
different approach:
Foods are cooked at a lower temperature
than a conventional oven, so conventional recipe temperature may have to be
reduced. Please refer to the conversion
chart.
After setting, the display will revert to
show the time of day, but you can press
the minute minder button, and the
display will show the minutes remaining.

Using the Main Oven
When roasting meats, you will notice that
fat splashing is reduced, which is due
in part to the lower oven temperatures,
and will help keep cleaning of the
oven to a minimum.
Because a fan oven has an even
temperature throughout the oven, there
is no need to follow the shelf positions
given in the baking guide. There is no
need to interchange dishes onto
different shelves part way through
cooking, as with a conventional oven.
To help the air circulate freely
Position the shelves evenly within the
oven and maintain a clearance from
the oven roof and base.
When batch baking foods that will rise
during cooking - eg; bread - always
ensure that enough space has been
left between the shelves to allow for
the rise.
If more than one cooking
baking tray is to be used on
leave a gap of at least

of the oven and close the door.
Do not defrost larger joints of meat
and poultry over 2kg / 4lb using this
method.
To cool foods after cooking prior to
refrigerating or freezing, turn the
main oven control to the defrost
position and open the door.
Never place uncooked food for
defrosting next to cooked food which
is to be cooled, as this can lead to
cross contamination.
Using the Ovens
Important:
Food is more susceptible to the growth
of food poisoning organisms in warm
conditions. If the weather is hot, either
take care to ensure that food is not left
standing in a warm oven, or avoid
using the automatic cooking facility.
Hints for automatic cooking
Defrosting meat, poultry, and fish can
be accelerated using this method
but make sure they are completely
thawed before cooking thoroughly.
Place meat and poultry on a trivet in a
meat tin.
Defrosting times
Small or thin pieces of frozen fish or
meat - eg; fish filets, prawns & mince
will take approximately 1 - 2 hours.
Placing the food in a single layer will
reduce the thawing time.
A medium sized casserole or stew will
take approximately 3 - 4 hours.
Main oven baking guide
A 1 ⁄2kg / 3lb oven ready chicken will
take approximately 5 hours, remove
the giblets as soon as possible.
The temperature settings and times given
in the baking guide are based on dishes
made with block margarine. If soft tub
margarine is used it may be necessary
to reduce the temperature setting.

The automatic cooking facility is
controlled by the programmer (see
‘Programmer / Clock’ section) and
allows complete meals or individual
dishes to be cooked while you are out
of the house, to be ready for when you

•
Select foods which are as fresh as
possible, and as cold as possible ie; preferably straight from the
refrigerator.
Choose foods which are suitable
for cooking from a cold start, as
some dishes will be affected by
being left uncooked, at room
temperature, perhaps for several
hours - eg; a wet filling on a
pastry base.
Make sure that meat and poultry
are thoroughly thawed (but still cold
from the refrigerator) before placing
them in the oven, and avoid using
rolled joints of meat, which can be
more susceptible to the growth of
food poisoning organisms.
Warm food should never be
placed in the oven if there is a
delay period.
Stews prepared by frying the
meat and vegetables first should
be cooked as soon as possible,
or refrigerated prior to placing in
the oven.
Some dishes are not suitable for
cooking on automatic - eg; dishes
containing left over meat or
poultry, dishes containing eggs,
cooked rice, or seafood.

Do not put food items (intended for
automatic cooking) into a warm
oven; allow the oven to cool before
setting for automatic cooking.
•
Do not over fill dishes containing
liquids, as they might boil over.
•
Never leave food in the oven to
cool slowly after cooking; serve
immediately or refrigerate.
•
Never use the automatic facility to
reheat ‘cook chill’ foods, as they
should go straight from the

Traditional fruit cakes
Roast turkey
Roasting guide
Notes:
It should be remembered that ovens
can vary over time, therefore cooking
times can vary, making it difficult to be
precise when baking fruit cakes.
Roasting turkey involves cooking two
different types of meat - the delicate
light breast meat, which must not be
allowed to dry out, and the darker leg
meat, which takes longer to cook.
The times given in the roasting guide
are only approximate, because the
size and age of the bird will influence
cooking times as will the shape of a
joint and the proportion of the bone.
■ When cooking stuffed meat or
poultry calculate the cooking time
from the total weight of the meat
plus the stuffing.
The turkey must be roasted long
enough for the legs to cook, so
frequent basting is necessary. The
breast meat can be covered once
browned.
Frozen meat should be thoroughly
thawed before cooking. For large
joints it is advisable to thaw overnight.
It is necessary therefore, to test the
cake before removal from the oven.
Use a fine warmed skewer inserted
into the centre of the cake. If the
skewer comes out clean, then the cake
is cooked.
■ Follow the temperatures suggested
in the recipe and then adjust
accordingly to the conversion table
on page 12.
■ Always make sure that the turkey
is completely thawed and that the
giblets are removed before cooking.
■ Turkey should be roasted at
150˚C - 160˚C for 20 minutes
per lb, plus 20 minutes, unless
packaging advises otherwise.
■ Do not attempt to make Christmas
cakes larger than the oven can cope
with, you should allow at least
25mm (1 inch) space between the
oven walls and the tin.
■ The turkey can be open roasted,
breast side down, for half of the
cook time, and then turned over for
the remainder of the cooking time.
■ Always follow the temperatures
recommended in the recipe.
■ If the turkey is stuffed, add 5
minutes per 1lb to the cooking time.
■ To protect a very rich fruit cake
during cooking, tie 2 layers of
brown paper around the tin.
■ If roasting turkey covered with
foil, add 5 minutes per 1lb to the
cooking time.
■ We recommend that the cake tin is
not stood on layers of brown
paper, as this can hinder effective
circulation of air.
To test if the turkey is cooked, push a
fine skewer into the thickest part of the
thigh. If the juices run clear, the turkey
is cooked. If the juices are still pink,
the turkey will need longer cooking.
■ Do not use soft tub margarine for
rich fruit cakes, unless specified in
the recipe.
■ Always use the correct size and
shape of tin for the recipe quantities.
17
■ For joints cooked in foil or covered
roasters, and for lidded casseroles,
add 5 minutes per 450g (1lb) to
the calculated cooking time.
Frozen poultry should be thoroughly
thawed before cooking. The time
required depends on the size of the
bird - eg; a large turkey may take up
to 48 hours to thaw.
■ Smaller joints weighing less than
1.25kg (21⁄2lb) may require 5
minutes per 450g (1lb) extra
cooking time.
■ Position the oven shelf so that the
meat or poultry will be in the
centre of the oven.
Use of a trivet with a roasting tin will
reduce fat splashing and will help to keep
the oven interior clean. Alternatively,
to help reduce fat splashing, potatoes
or other vegetables can be roasted
around the meat / poultry.
■ It is recommended that the appliance
is cleaned after open roasting.
Allow the appliance to cool before
attempting to clean it.
