Britain’s No.1 Range Cooker
Nexus 90 Induction
Our range cookers are well known for providing
the best possible cooking performance and years
of faithful service. However, a great cooker alone
cannot guarantee perfect results every time. The
other vital ingredients are of course enthusiasm
and quality cookware.
We offer cookware to work perfectly with all
fuel types manufactured by Rangemaster,
including induction hobs. You can be assured of
functionality with style, as well as the quality and
meticulous attention to detail you expect from the
pioneers of range cooking.
Serves 4–6
Preheat the oven to 200 °C (for a conventional oven),
180 oC (for a fan oven) or gas mark 6.
Lightly grease a dish 26 cm wide x 4 cm deep.
Thickly slice any large strawberries and place them with the other fruits into an
ovenproof dish, deep enough so the berries are about 2 deep.
Whisk the eggs and caster sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat the milk and vanilla
extract into the mixture and then fold in the sifted flour and baking powder.
Pour the cake mix over the fruit and bake on the centre shelf of the oven for 1520 minutes, or until the mixture is cooked through and golden on the top.
Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately with cream or crème fraiche.
Oil for greasing
100 g strawberries
100 g raspberries
100 g redcurrants
100 g blackberries
or a 400 g mixture of
any soft fruits
2 medium eggs
30 g caster sugar
80 ml skimmed milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
60 g plain flour (sifted)
1 tsp baking powder
Icing sugar to dust
3 kg (6½ lb) skinned and
boned loin of pork
2 x 70 g packs prosciutto
Grated zest of 2 lemons
Bay leaves
Salt and freshly ground black
For the sauce:
1 tablespoons plain flour
4 tablespoons lemon juice
Chicken stock/water
Preheat the oven to 220 °C (for a conventional oven), 200 °C (for a
fan oven) or gas mark 7.
Spread one of the packs of prosciutto over a chopping board;
place the pork on top with the outer (fat) part of the pork resting
on the prosciutto.
Sprinkle the lemon zest onto the inside of the meat and season
well. Lay the remaining prosciutto on top of the zest and roll up.
Secure the pork with string or silicone bands and thread bay
leaves under the string, covering the whole piece of pork. Put the
meat on to a trivet over a large roasting tin containing enough
water to cover the base.
Place into the oven and cook for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to
180 °C conventional oven/160 °C fan oven/gas 4 and continue
roasting for a further 25 minutes per 500 g. Should the prosciutto
start becoming too brown, cover with some foil.
When the pork is cooked, place onto a warm plate, cover with foil
and allow to rest for at least 20 minutes.
Spoon off most of the fat from the roasting tin and stir the flour
into the remaining. Gradually add the stock and lemon juice,
adding more stock until the desired consistency is reached and
simmer for 5 minutes. Check the seasoning, adding more pepper
or lemon juice as necessary.
Remove the string or bands from the pork and carve into slices,
serve with the sauce.

1. Before You Start...
Personal Safety
Your cooker should give you many years of trouble-free
cooking if installed and operated correctly. It is important
that you read this section before you start.
This appliance is for cooking purposes only. It must not be
used for other purposes, for example heating a room. Using
it for any other purpose could invalidate any warranty or
liability claim. Besides invalidating claims this wastes fuel and
may overheat the control knobs.
• This appliance can be used by children aged from
8 years and above and persons with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience
and knowledge if they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe
way, and understand the hazards involved.

• DO NOT use unstable saucepans. Always make sure that
you position the handles away from the edge of the
• NEVER leave the hotplate unattended at high heat
settings. Pans boiling over can cause smoking,
and greasy spills may catch on fire. Use a deep fat
thermometer whenever possible to prevent fat
overheating beyond the smoking point.
• Unattended cooking on a hob with fat or oil can be
dangerous and may result in fire.
• NEVER leave a chip pan unattended. Always heat fat
slowly, and watch as it heats. Deep fry pans should be
only one third full of fat.
• NEVER try to move a pan of hot fat, especially a deep fat
fryer. Wait until the fat is cool. Filling the pan too full of
fat can cause spill over when food is added. If you use a
combination of oils or fats in frying, stir them together
before heating, or as the fats melt.
• Foods for frying should be as dry as possible. Frost on
frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods can cause hot
fat to bubble up and over the sides of the pan. Carefully
watch for spills or overheating of foods when frying at
high or medium high temperatures.

Peculiar Smells
When you first use your cooker it may give off an odour. This
should stop after use.
Before using for the first time, make sure that all packing
materials have been removed and then, to dispel
manufacturing odours, turn the ovens to 200 °C and run for at
least an hour.
Before using the grill for the first time you should also turn on
the grill and run for 30 minutes with the grill pan in position,
pushed fully back and the grill door open.
Make sure the room is well ventilated to the outside air
(see ‘Ventilation’ below). People with respiratory or allergy
problems should vacate the area for this brief period.
The use of a cooking appliance results in the production
of heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed.
Therefore, make sure that the kitchen is well ventilated:
keep natural ventilation holes open or install a powered
cookerhood that vents outside. If you have several hotplates/
burners on, or use the cooker for a long time, open a window
or turn on an extractor fan

The Hob
Use only pans that are suitable for induction hobs. We
recommend stainless steel, enamelled steel pans or cast iron
pans with enamelled bases. Note that some stainless steel
pans are not suitable for use with an induction hob so please
check carefully before purchasing any cookware.
Fig. 2.3
Pans made of copper, aluminium or ceramic are not suitable
for use on an induction hob. The kind of pan you use and the
quantity of food affects the setting required. Higher settings are
required for larger quantities of food.
Pots and pans should have thick, smooth, flat bottoms
(Fig. 2.2). This allows the maximum heat transfer from the
hob to the pan, making cooking quick and energy efficient.
Never use a round-bottomed wok, even with a stand.
The very best pans have bases that are very slightly curved
up when cold (Fig. 2.3). If you hold a ruler across the bottom
you will see a small gap in the middle. When they heat up the
metal expands and lies flat on the cooking surface.
Make sure that the base of the pan is clean and dry to prevent
any residue burning onto the hob panel. This also helps
prevent scratches and deposits.
Always use pans that are the same size as (or slightly larger
than) the areas marked on the hob. Using a lid will help the
contents boil more quickly.
The induction hob comprises of five cooking zones
containing induction elements with different ratings and
diameters (Fig. 2.4) each with a pan detector and residual
heat indicator, and a hob control display.

If a cooking area is switched on and there is no pan in place
or if the pan is too small for the cooking area, then no heat
will be generated. The symbol [ ] will appear on the hob
control display; this is the “pan-missing symbol”. Place a pan
of the correct size on the cooking area and the [ ] symbol
will disappear and cooking can begin. After 10 minutes
without detecting a pan the cooking zone will switch off
Table 2.1 shows the minimum pan sizes recommended for
each cooking zone.
Note: Using pans with a base diameter smaller than those
recommended will result in a power reduction.

Deactivate the Power Boost function by turning the control
knob to a lower setting.
Overheat Function
This function identifies when the temperature of the pan rises
rapidly and works to maintain a safe level of pan temperature.
It should not interfere with normal cooking.
Cookware with bases that become distorted (Fig. 2.2) when
heated may interfere with the operation of the Overheat
Function. This may result in damage to your cookware or
Induction Glass Hob.
Please read and follow the manufacturers’ instructions
carefully before using cookware on your induction hob.
The Glide-out Grill
Fig. 2.9
Open the door and, using the handle, pull the grill pan
carriage forward (Fig. 2.9).
The grill has two elements that allow either the whole area of
the pan to be heated or just the right-hand half.
Adjust the heat to suit by turning the knob. To heat the whole
grill, turn the knob clockwise (Fig. 2.10).
To heat the right-hand half, turn the knob counter-clockwise.
The neon indicator light by the grill control will come on.
For best results, leave the grill pan in the grill chamber and
preheat the appropriate part(s) of the grill for two minutes.
The grill trivet can be removed and the food placed on it
while you are waiting for the grill to preheat.
Fig. 2.10
Once the grill has preheated, take the grill pan out again and
put the trivet back in place with the food on it. Slide the grill
pan or carriage back into the grill chamber. Make sure that it
is pushed right in.
The grill pan trivet can be set to four different grilling heights
by a combination of turning it back to front and turning it
upside down (Fig. 2.11).
Fig. 2.11
Do not leave the grill on for more than a few moments,
without the grill pan underneath it.
The Ovens
Fig. 2.12
The clock must be set to the time of day before the ovens
will work. See the following section on ‘The Clock’ for
instructions on setting the time of day.
Multi-function oven
References to ‘left-hand’ and ‘right-hand’ ovens apply as viewed
from the front of the appliance.
The left-hand oven is a multifunction oven (Fig. 2.12), while
the right-hand oven is a fan oven (Fig. 2.13).
ArtNo.321-0006 - Multi-function oven
Fan ovens circulate hot air continuously, which means
faster, more even cooking. The recommended cooking
temperatures for a fan oven are generally lower than those
for a non-fan oven.
Fig. 2.13
Multifunction ovens have an oven fan and oven fan element,
as well as two extra heating elements. One element is in
the top of the oven and the second is under the oven base.
Take care to avoid touching the top element and element
deflector when placing or removing items from the oven.
Tall fan oven
The multifunction oven has 3 main cooking functions: fan,
fan assisted and conventional cooking. These functions
should be used to complete most of your cooking.

The multifunction oven has many varied uses. We suggest
you keep a careful eye on your cooking until you are familiar
with each function. Remember, not all functions will be
suitable for all food types.
Table 2.4
Conventional Oven (Top and Base Heat)
This function combines the heat from the top and
base elements. It is particularly suitable for roasting
and baking pastry, cakes and biscuits.
Multifunction Oven Functions
Fan Oven
This function operates the fan and the heating
element around it. An even heat is produced
throughout the oven, allowing you to cook large
amounts quickly.
Food cooked on the top shelf will brown and crisp faster than
on the lower shelf, because the heat is greater at the top of
the oven than at the base, as in ‘Fan Assisted Oven’ function.
Similar items being cooked will need to be swapped around
for even cooking. This means that foods requiring different
temperatures can be cooked together, using the cooler zone
in the lower half of the oven and hotter area to the top.
Fan oven cooking is particularly suitable for baking on several
shelves at one time and is a good ‘all-round’ function. It may
be necessary to reduce the temperature by approximately
10 °C for recipes previously cooked in a conventional oven.
If you wish to preheat the oven, wait until the indicator light
has gone out before inserting the food.
Fanned Grilling
This function operates the fan while the top element
is on. It produces a more even, less fierce heat than a
conventional grill. For best results, place the food to
be grilled, on a trivet over a roasting tin, which should be
smaller than a conventional grill pan. This allows greater air
circulation. Thick pieces of meat or fish are ideal for grilling in
this way, as the circulated air reduces the fierceness of the
heat from the grill.
The exposed top element may cook some foods too quickly,
so we recommend that the food be positioned in the lower
half of the oven to cook. The oven temperature may also need
to be lowered.
Browning Element
This function uses the element in the top of the oven
only. It is a useful function for the browning or
finishing of pasta dishes, vegetables in sauce,
shepherds pie and lasagne, the item to be browned being
already hot before switching to the top element.
Base Heat
This function uses the base element only. It will crisp
up your pizza or quiche base or finish off cooking the
base of a pastry case on a lower shelf. It is also a
gentle heat, good for slow cooking of casseroles in the
middle of the oven or for plate warming.
The oven door should be kept closed while grilling is in
progress, so saving energy.
You will also find that the food needs to be watched and
turned less than for normal grilling. Preheat this function
before cooking.
For best results we recommend that the grill pan is not
located on the uppermost shelf.
Fan Assisted Oven
This function operates the fan, circulating air heated
by the elements at the top and the base of the oven.
The combination of fan and conventional cooking
(top and base heat) makes this function ideal for cooking
large items that need thorough cooking, such as a large meat
The Browning and Base Heat functions are useful additions to
your oven, giving you flexibility to finish off items to perfection.
This function operates the fan to circulate cold air
only. Make sure the temperature control is at 0°C and
that no heat is applied. This enables small items such
as desserts, cream cakes and pieces of meat, fish and poultry
to be defrosted.
Defrosting in this way speeds up the process and protects
the food from flies. Pieces of meat, fish and poultry should
be placed on a shelf, over a tray to catch any drips. Be sure to
wash the shelf and tray after defrosting.
It is also possible to bake on two shelves at one time,
although they will need to be swapped over during the
cooking time, as the heat at the top of the oven is greater
than at the base, when using this function.
Defrost with the oven door closed.
This is a fast intensive form of cooking; keep an eye on the food
cooking until you have become accustomed to this function.
Large items, such as whole chickens and joints should not be
defrosted in this way. We recommend this be carried out in a
Defrosting should not be carried out in a warm oven or when
an adjoining oven is in use or still warm.
Make sure that dairy foods, meat and poultry are completely
defrosted before cooking.

3. Cooking Tips
Using Your Induction Cooker
General Oven Tips
If you have not used an induction cooker before please be
aware of the following:
The wire shelves should always be pushed firmly to the back
of the oven.
Baking trays with food cooking on them should be placed
level with the front edge of the oven’s wire shelves. Other
containers should be placed centrally. Keep all trays and
containers away from the back of the oven, as overbrowning
of the food may occur.
Make sure that the pans you have or buy are suitable
for use on the induction hob. Stainless steel, enamelled
steel or cast iron is ideal. Double check before you
buy pans – they must have bases that would attract a
Allow time to get used to induction cooking; it is fast
and powerful as well as being gentle. When simmering,
you may notice that liquids appear to stop bubbling and
then start again almost immediately. This is perfectly
You may notice a faint vibrating sound coming from
the pans when using the induction hob. Again, this is
perfectly normal and will depend upon the type and
style of pans you are using.
The induction heating elements will phase on and off
when cooking. Although an active cooking zone may
appear to switch on and off, a constant heat is still being
supplied to the base of the pan – this is completely
For even browning, the maximum recommended size of a
baking tray is 340 mm (13½”) by 340 mm (13½”) in the main
oven and 232 mm (91/8”) and 321 mm (125/8”) in the tall oven.
When the oven is on, do not leave the door open for
longer than necessary, otherwise the knobs may get very
Tips on Cooking with the Timer
If you want to cook more than one dish, choose dishes that
require approximately the same cooking time. However,
dishes can be ‘slowed down’ slightly by using small containers
and covering them with aluminium foil, or ‘speeded up’
slightly by cooking smaller quantities or placing them in
larger containers.
Very perishable foods such as pork or fish should be avoided
if a long delay period is planned, especially in hot weather.
DO NOT place warm food in the oven to be timed.
DO NOT use a timed oven that is already warm.
DO NOT use the timed oven if the adjoining oven is
already warm.
Whole poultry must be thoroughly defrosted before being
placed in the oven. Check that meat and poultry are fully
cooked before serving.
Always leave a “finger’s width” between dishes on
the same shelf. This allows the heat to circulate freely
around them.
To reduce fat splashing when you add vegetables to hot
fat around a roast, dry them thoroughly or brush lightly
with cooking oil.
Where dishes may boil and spill over during cooking,
place them on a baking tray.
The ‘Cook & Clean’ oven liners (see ‘Cleaning Your
Cooker’) work better when fat splashes are avoided.
Cover meat when cooking.
Sufficient heat rises out of the oven while cooking to
warm plates in the grill compartment.
If you want to brown the base of a pastry dish, preheat
the baking tray for 15 minutes before placing the dish in
the centre of the tray.

NEVER use paint solvents, washing soda, caustic
cleaners, biological powders, bleach, chlorine based
bleach cleaners, coarse abrasives or salt.
DO NOT mix different cleaning products – they may
react together with hazardous results.
All parts of the cooker can be cleaned with hot soapy water.
Take care that no surplus water seeps into the appliance.
Remember to switch the electricity supply back on and reset
the clock before reusing the cooker.
ArtNo.312-0010 Cleaning; scraping the ceramic hob
Daily Care
First of all make sure that all heat indicator lights are off and
that the cooking surface is cool. Apply a small dab of ceramic
cleaning cream in the centre of each area to be cleaned.
Dampen a clean paper towel and work the cream onto the
cooking surface. As a final step, wipe the cooking surface with
a clean, dry paper towel.
Cleaning Spills
For spills and boil-overs that occur while cooking, turn the
unit off and wipe the area surrounding the hot zone with a
clean paper towel. If a spill (other than a sugary substance) is
on the hot zone, do not clean until the unit has completely
cooled down, and then follow the instructions below
(‘Cleaning Burned-on Spills’).
If you accidentally melt anything on the surface, or if you spill
foods with a high sugar content (preserves, tomato sauce,
fruit juice, etc.), remove the spill IMMEDIATELY with a razor
scraper, while the unit is still hot.
IMPORTANT: Use an oven glove to protect your hand from
potential burns.
Scrape the major spill or melted material from the cooking
zone and push into a cold area. Then, turn the unit ‘OFF’ and
allow it to cool before cleaning further. After the cooking
surface cools down and the heat indicator lights go off, follow
the ‘Daily Care’ procedure outlined above.
Cleaning Burned-on Spills
Make sure that the heat indicator lights are off and that the
hob is cool. Remove the excess burned-on substance with a
single-edged razor scraper. Hold the scraper at an angle of
about 30° to the surface and then scrape off the burned-on
matter (Fig. 5.1).
Once you have removed as much as possible with the scraper,
follow the ‘Daily Care’ procedure outlined above.
Fig. 5.2
The grill pan and trivet should be washed in hot soapy water.
After grilling meats or any foods that soil, leave to soak for a
few minutes immediately after use. Stubborn particles may
be removed from the trivet using a nylon brush. Alternatively,
the grill pan can be washed in a dishwasher.
Before you remove any of the grill parts for cleaning,
make sure that they are cool, or use oven gloves.
DO NOT use any abrasive substances.
Cleaning the Glide-out Grill
ArtNo.331-0003 Grill frame out, no pan
The grill pan can be easily removed for cleaning as follows:
Remove the grill pan support frame by pulling the grill pan
forward (Fig. 5.2).
Lift the grill pan clear of the support frame. The support frame
is held to the side rails by two clips on each side (Fig. 5.3).
For each side, support the side rail with one hand and with
the other hand lift the frame up and out of the side clips (Fig.
For safety, push the side rails back into the grill chamber.

DO NOT use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal
scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they can
scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of
the glass.
‘Cook & Clean’ Panels
The main oven has side ‘Cook & Clean’ panels which have
been coated with a special enamel that partly cleans itself.
This does not stop all marks on the lining, but helps to reduce
the amount of manual cleaning needed.
Fig. 5.9
These panels work better above 200 °C. If you do most of your
cooking below this temperature, occasionally remove the
panels and wipe with a lint free cloth and hot soapy water.
The panels should then be dried and replaced and the oven
heated at 200 °C for about one hour. This will make sure that
the panels are working effectively.
Removing the Panels to Clean the Enamel
Some of the lining panels can be removed for cleaning.
If you wish to clean the enamel interior of the oven, you will
need to remove the shelves before removing the ‘Cook &
Clean’ panels. Lift each panel upward and slide forward off
the support brackets (Fig. 5.8).
Once the panels have been removed, the oven enamel
interior can be cleaned.
DO NOT use steel wool, oven cleaning pads, or any other
materials that will scratch the surface.

If turning the temperature down using the oven control
knob has not worked, or has only worked for a short
time, then you may need a new thermostat. This should
be fitted by a service person.
The oven light is not working
The bulb has probably blown. You can buy a
replacement bulb (which is not covered under the
guarantee) from most electrical stores. Ask for an Edison
screw fitting 15 W 230 V lamp, FOR OVENS. It must be a
special bulb, heat resistant to 300 °C (Fig. 6.1).
