when appliance is not in use.
Operating the
control when the
grill is in use
10
In common with all cookers having controls sited above the grill
compartment, care must be taken when setting the controls, due
to hot air being emitted from the grill compartment.
Hotplates General Information Notes
Note:
Under no circumstances should the hob be used with aluminium foil
in contact with the hob surface.
Use of Hotplates
The controls set the hotplates at six pre-set power levels. Each
control can be used to select one of six temperature settings from a
minimum at position 1 to a maximum at position 6, the redspot hotplates
heat up more rapidly to give faster boiling.

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 to 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.

Oven
Oven Control
With the oven door closed, heating of the oven is achieved
by turning the control clockwise to the required ‘oven
temperature’ scale on the control panel, as recommended
in the temperature charts. The pilot light will immediately
come on and go off during cooking as the thermostat
maintains the correct temperature.
Note: At the end of the cooking period there may be a
momentary puff of steam when the oven door is opened.
This will disperse in a few seconds and is perfectly normal
characteristics of an oven with a good door seal.
Note: Remember to switch off the oven control after
cooking is finished.
Oven Cookery Notes
To prepare meat for
roasting in your
electric oven
16
The ‘oven temperature charts’ are a guide only,
giving approximate cooking temperatures and times. To
suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary
to increase or decrease temperatures by 10oC.
Wipe the joint, dry well with a clean cloth, kitchen tissue,
etc., and weigh it. Meat which has been stored in a refrigerator, should be allowed to come to room temperature for
approximately 30 minutes before cooking. Always completely thaw frozen meat before cooking. Beef, lamb
and mutton may be lightly floured, but pork should have
the rind scored, brushed over lightly with olive oil, and
sprinkled with salt – for crisp crackling.
Place the joint in a suitably sized meat pan (a small joint in
a large meat pan causes unnecessary oven splashing).
Small joints weighing less than 1.5kg (3lbs) may be pot
roasted. Additional fat should not be used, except for veal,
very lean meat, poultry, which can either be ‘larded’ with
fat bacon, or brushed over very sparingly with melted
fat/cooking oil. When potatoes are roasted round the joint,
they only require to be coated in melted fat/cooking oil. It is
not necessary to baste, when roasting in an electric oven,
and liquid/stock should not be added to the meat pan.
Oven Cookery Notes
Temperature and
Time
The secret of succulent, tender meat, is not to roast quickly at
too high a temperature. Best results are obtained when
roasting is carried out at low temperatures. When a lower
temperature is used, joint loses less weight, is more tender
(too high a temperature causes meat to be tough and dry),
and the splashing of fat onto oven interior is reduced. When a
complete meal is being cooked in the oven, cooking time
may need to be increased, and temperature may need to be
raised for approximately the last 30 minutes of the cooking
period (for instance when cooking Yorkshire pudding to
serve with roast beef).
The times and temperature suggested should be used as a
guide but may vary according to:–
1. Whether you prefer meat rare, medium or well
done.
2. The size and shape of your joint.
a) A short thick joint requires a longer cooking
period than a long thin joint.
b) A small joint under 1.5kg (3lbs) takes longer per
450g (1lb) than a large one, whereas a large
joint over 3kg (6lbs) will cook in the time given
for ‘minutes’ per 450g (1lb) without the ‘minutes’
over added.
c) Boned/rolled and stuffed joints take longer to
cook through than those with a bone. (The
weight of stuffing should be added to the oven
ready weight of meat/poultry to calculate
roasting times.)
Meat pan and rod
shelves
Never use meat pans larger than 390 x 300mm (15”x12”) and
baking trays no larger than 330x255mm (13”x10”), these
should be positioned centrally on the oven shelf. Food
should not be placed directly on the floor of the oven. To
avoid unnecessary cleaning, rod shelves which are not in use,
should be removed from the oven.

Care and Cleaning
TURN OFF THE MAIN SWITCH BEFORE CLEANING.
BEFORE SWITCHING ON AGAIN, ENSURE THAT ALL
CONTROLS ARE IN THE OFF POSITION.
NEVER USE BIOLOGICAL WASHING POWDER, HARSH
ABRASIVES, SCOURING PADS, AEROSOL CLEANERS OR
OVEN CHEMICAL CLEANERS OF ANY KIND UNLESS
SPECIFIED BELOW.
CLEANING MATERIALS TO AVOID
1. Plastic or nylon pads / scourers, these may scratch the surface.
2. Household abrasive powders.
3. Oven chemical cleaners, aerosols and oven pads.
Caustic cleaners such as these will etch the surface and attack the metal
frame.
4. Bath and sink cleaners may mark the surface.
ELECTRIC SEALED HOTPLATES
The cleaning of sealed hotplates should be done when they are cold, using a
soap filled Brillo pad, following the grain of the hotplate. This will ensure that
any stubborn, burnt on spillages are removed. Wipe over with a damp clean
cloth, making sure that all the cleaner has been removed. Finally, turn on hotplate to warm for a few minutes, then smear with a little cooking oil to provide
a protective coating, or the restorative agent Homecare Four Hob, available
from Credacare Spares or leading supermarkets. The bezels will mellow with
use to a burnished gold colour, a soap filled Brillo pad will help to keep them
bright, care should be taken not to damage the vitreous enamel hob surface.
GRILL
Remove the grill pan and the wire grid food support, it is best to wash these
items immediately after use to prevent stains from being burnt on when used
again. Wipe out the Grill compartment, use a fine steel wool soap pad to
remove stubborn stains from the grill runners the grill deflector plate and the
floor of the compartment.
CONTROL PANEL
Wipe over the control panel with a damp cloth and polish with a dry cloth. Do
not use cream cleaners, oven cleaners or aerosols, scouring pads or abrasive
powder for cleaning the plastic knobs as damage will occur.
OVEN DOORS
Wipe over the door outer panel with a cloth wrung out in hot soapy water, then
afterwiping with a cloth wrung out in clear water, dry with a soft clean cloth.
Do not use scouring pads or abrasive powder which may scratch the
surface.
Take care during cleaning not to damage or distort the Door Seal. Do not lift the
Door Seal from the Oven Front Frame, if necessary remove the seal by carefully
unhooking the corner clips.
20
Care and Cleaning
How ‘Credaclean’
Works
The surface of the ‘Credaclean’ oven liners are treated on the
mottled face with a special vitreous enamel which absorbs
cooking soils. At temperatures of 220oC (425oF) or above,
the special surface enables these soils to be slowly
destroyed. The higher the temperature the more effective it
is. In most cases normal cooking operation at this temperature will permit this cleaning operation to proceed during
cooking. However if higher cooking temperatures are not
used regularly it may be necessary, to prevent heavy soilng,
to run the oven control at maximum setting for a couple of
hours. This may be necessary once a month or once every
two or three months depending on the type and amount of
oven cooking.
Oven Liners – Sides
It should not normally be necessary to clean the ‘Credaclean’
panels in water. If desirable remove the rod shelves and the
side panels and wash them in warm soapy water, followed by
rinsing in clean water.
Cleaning Materials
to avoid
1. Plastic or nylon pads, scourers, these may scratch
the surface.
2. Household abrasive powders.
3. Oven chemical cleaners, aerosols and oven pads.
4. Caustic cleaners, these will etch the surface and attack
the metal frame.
5. Bath and sink cleaners may mark the surface.
Note: We do not recommend the use of decorative
covers over the hot hotplates as these can hold condensation
and cause corrosion. Accidental operation with a cover in
place can cause intense heat. Never place saucepan lids on
the hotplates, as this may cause corrosion.
Note: Care must be taken to ensure that the rating plate label
edges are not lifted during cleaning and that the lettering is
not blurred or removed.
21
Cooking Results Not Satisfactory?
Problem
Check
Grilling
Uneven cooking front
to back
Ensure that the grill pan is positioned correctly.
Fat splattering
Ensure the grill is not set to too high a temperature.
Oven Baking
Uneven rising of cakes
Ensure that the oven shelves are level by using a spirit level on the
rod shelf and adjusting, using suitable packing,
e.g. wood, under the feet of the appliance. This should be
checked both left to right and front to back.
Sinking of cakes
The following may cause cakes to sink:
1. Cooking at too high a temperature.
2. Using normal creaming method with soft margarine.
Over/Under cooking
Fast/Slow cooking

Condensation on the
wall at the rear of the
cooker.
Steam and/or condensation may appear from the vent at the rear
of the appliance when using an oven particularly for foods with a
high water content e.g. frozen chips, roast chicken etc. This is
normal and any excess should be wiped off.
Steam / Condensation
in the oven after use.
Steam is a by-product of cooking any food with a high water
content. To help minimise always:
a) Try to avoid leaving food in the oven to cool after being
cooked.
b) Use a covered container, wherever possible
