Safety Advice
IN THE EVENT OF A CHIP PAN FIRE OR ANY OTHER PAN FIRE.
1. TURN OFF THE COOKER APPLIANCE AT THE WALL SWITCH.
2. COVER THE PAN WITH A FIRE BLANKET OR DAMP CLOTH, this will
smother the flames and extinguish the fire.
3. LEAVE THE PAN TO COOL FOR AT LEAST 60 MINUTES BEFORE
MOVING IT. Injuries are often caused by picking up a hot pan and
rushing outside with it.
NEVER USE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER TO PUT OUT A PAN FIRE as the force
of the extinguisher is likely to tip the pan over.
Never use water to extinguish oil or fat fires.

The knobs for the hotplates and grill can be rotated in either direction to
provide variable heat control, the Main Oven and Top Oven knobs can
only be rotated clockwise from the Off position.
Note: Always ensure that all controls are in the OFF position,
when the appliance is not in use.
Operating the
control when the
grill is in use
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.
Slow cooking
The main oven has a 90˚ setting specially designed to reduce energy
usage. Full details of this can be found in the Slow cooking section of this
book.

Hotplates General Information Notes - All hobs
Warning: Extreme caution should be used when cleaning a hot hob
Important
Always clean off any spillage immediately with a clean cloth or kitchen roll to avoid
unnecessary damage to the hob. Extreme care should be taken to avoid steam burns
and hot surfaces when cleaning spillage from the hob.
When cooking food which contains sugar (most food) or syrup, use a utensil which is
large enough to prevent boil over or spillage. Sugar spillage will permanently damage
the hob and therefore should be cleaned off with care immediately. If sugar spillage
has occurred, remove it as long as it is still hot with a suitable metal scraper. This will
avoid any damage. Never let it cool before removing.
Hotplates General Information Notes - ETCW51 / EDC51
CAUTION: IF AT ANY TIME A CRACK IN THE SURFACE BECOMES VISIBLE, DISCONNECT THE
APPLIANCE IMMEDIATELY FROM THE SUPPLY.
Always make sure that the base of the utensil to be used is dry before placing it on a
ceramic hob.
Under no circumstances should the hob be used with aluminium foil in contact with
the hob surface as damage can occur.
The cooking areas change colour when heated (become red) indicating which heating
element is switched on. The cooking area returns to its original colour when the heating
element is switched Off.
Warning: Even though the cooking area has returned to its original colour it may still be
hot.
The controls for the hotplates can be turned in either direction.
Turn the control to 6 for fast cooking. To reduce the heat to cook more slowly or simmer,
turn the control to a lower setting according to the size of the saucepan and the amount
of liquid.
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
cut-outs have been incorporated with each element. After several minutes with the control at setting 6 the safety cut-out 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.
13
Hotplates General Information Notes - ETW51
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.

Never fill the pan more than one-third full of oil.
Never leave oil or fat unattended during the heating or cooking
period e.g. whilst answering the telephone.
Never 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 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.

Top Oven/Grill Cookery Notes - EDC / S51
The Top Oven is fitted with fixed ‘Creda clean’ sides, a removable
roof, and one rod shelf. It is heated by two elements – the grill
element and an element under the floor of the oven—and has a fully
variable temperature control like the main oven. To heat the oven, turn
the control knob clockwise, selecting the required temperature
as recommended in the Top Oven temperature chart. The indicator
light will immediately come on and remain on until the oven reaches
the required temperature. The light will then automatically go off and
on during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct
temperature.
Top Oven for
Cooking
The Top Oven is used in exactly the same way as the Main Oven to
cook all types of food. It can either be used alone, to cook small
quantities of food, or in conjunction with the main oven to provide
additional cooking space, so often necessary when entertaining.
There are two cooking positions – the shelf placed directly on the
floor of the oven, or runner 1 from the floor of the oven. To correctly
position the rod shelf the side rods with “indents” must be
uppermost and to the rear, this forms an ‘arrest’ position in
conjunction with the embossed side liners. The correct positioning of
food is indicated in the temperature charts on pages 19 and 20.
These 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 10°C.
Food must never be placed directly on the floor of the oven with
out a shelf in position, and there should always be at least 25mm
(1”) between the top of the food and the grill element. Most foods
are cooked at a lower temperature in the smaller top oven
than in a larger conventional main oven. Always ensure a
7.5cm (3") gap is left at the front of the baking tray to ensure even
cooking. Do not use utensils larger than 300mm (12") x 230mm
(9"). Large utensils should be used in the main oven.
Cooking Meat/
Poultry in the
Top Oven
The Top Oven is most useful for the longer, slower cooking required
for cheaper cuts of meat – casserole cooking, pot roasting, braising
etc.
Small joints of meat up to 1.5kg (3 lbs) or poultry up to 2.5kg (6 lbs)
in weight can be roasted in a small meat pan in the Top Oven, but
should preferably be ‘slow roasted’ or covered with a lid of
aluminium foil (one or two incisions in the top of the foil will allow
the meat or poultry to brown). Always ensure that there is at least
25mm (1”) between the top of the foil and the grill element. Do not
use the meat pan supplied for the main oven or the grill pan for
roasting in the Top Oven. Larger joints of meat weighing more than
l.5kg (3 lbs) or poultry weighing more than 2.5kg (6 lbs) should be
roasted in the main oven.

The most accurate method of testing the readiness of joints of meat or whole poultry is to insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of a
joint, or the thickest part of poultry thighs, during the cooking period. The meat thermometer will indicate when the required internal temp has
been reached.

Main Oven Cookery Notes
The oven is fitted with ‘Creda clean’ liners and two rod shelves.
Remove any pans when not in use.
To heat the oven, turn the control
knob
clockwise,
selecting
the
o
o
o
o
required temperature between 80 C (175 F) and 230 C (450 F) as
recommended in the temperature chart. The indicator light will
immediately come on and remain on until the oven reaches the required
temperature. This light will then automatically go off and on during
cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.
It should be noted that at the end of a 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 a perfectly normal characteristic
of an oven with a good door seal.
Since a fan oven heats up more quickly, and generally cooks food at
a lower temperature than a conventional oven, preheating the oven is
often unnecessary. However food such as bread, scones, Yorkshire
pudding, do benefit from being placed in a pre-heated oven.
The charts are a guide only, giving approximate cooking temperatures
and times. To suit personal taste and requirements,
it may be necessary to
o
increase or decrease temperatures by 10 C
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.
Oven Positions
Spares
Temperature
and Time
Since the distribution of heat in the circulaire ovens is very even,
most foods will cook satisfactorily on any shelf position, but the
shelves should be evenly spaced. Do not fit shelves upside down.
Additional shelves can be purchased through your cooker supplier or
Centre. Never use more than 3 shelves in the oven as air circulation will be
seriously restricted. To ensure even circulation do not use meat pans
larger than 390 x 300mm (15" x 12") and baking trays no larger than
330 x 255mm (13" x 10"), 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.
When three shelves are used to cook large quantities of food for
home freezing or parties, it may be necessary to increase the
cooking times given in the charts by a few minutes, to allow for the loss of
heat due to the extra time taken to load the oven, and the large mass of
food. Baking trays should allow an equal gap at either side of the oven.
N.B. Recipes in cookery books give times and temperatures for
cooking in ordinary ovens. The introduction of improved thermal
insulation on fan ovens makes it possible, in most ocases, to
reduce
o
(a) the recommended temperature by 25 C (45 F) and
(b) the recommended time by approximately 10 minutes per hour.
23
Main Oven Cookery Notes
To prepare meat and poultry for roasting in your fan oven.
(a) Wipe the meat or poultry, dry well and weigh it. Meat which has
been stored in a refrigerator should be allowed to come to room
temperature before cooking, and frozen meat or poultry must be
completely defrosted before placing in the oven.
(b) The weight of any stuffing used should be added before calculating the
cooking time.
(c) Place meat/poultry in a meat pan . Small joints weighing less than
1.75kg (31/2 lbs) should be roasted in a smaller meat pan/tin - or they
may be 'pot roasted' - a small joint in a large meat pan causes
unnecessary oven splashing and evaporation of meat juices.
(d) Additional fat should not be added, except for veal, very lean
meat or poultry which can either be 'larded' with fat bacon or
brushed very sparingly with cooking oil or melted fat.
(e) Beef, lamb, mutton and poultry may be dusted lightly with
seasoned flour to give a crisp outer surface. The skin of duck and
goose should be pricked to release excess fat during cooking,
and the rind of pork should be scored, brushed lightly with oil,
and rubbed with salt, to give crisp crackling.
(f) Meat and poultry wrapped in, or covered with a tent of
aluminium foil will be juicy and tender. Roasting bags offer the
same advantages. Always follow the manufacturers pack instructions,
and remember to reduce the
temperatures given for conventional
o
ovens by approximately 25 C and the time by approximately 10
minutes per hour.
(g) Potatoes for roasting only require to be brushed with cooking oil
or melted fat.
(h) It is not necessary to baste when roasting in an electric oven and
stock or liquid should not be added to the meat pan since this
only causes unnecessary soiling, steam and condensation.
Frozen Meat
and Poultry
24
Joints of meat and whole birds should be defrosted slowly, preferably
in a domestic refrigerator (allowing 5 - 6 hours per 450g, 1lb), or at
room temperature (allowing 2-3 hours per 450g, 1lb).
Using the Main Oven for Other Functions
90
“SLOW” Setting
This is used for slow cooking, keeping food warm and warming plates for short
periods. Extra care should be taken when warming bone china, as it may be damaged
in a hot oven.
DO NOT place food or plates directly on the oven floor as this could damage both the
oven lining and the plates which are being warmed.
Advantages of “SLOW” cooking are:
The oven stays cleaner because there is less splashing.
Timing of food is not as critical, so there is less fear of overcooking.
Inexpensive joints of meat are tenderised.
Fully loading the oven can be economical.
Cooking times can be extended in some cases by up to 2 hours.
Operation:
1.
2.
Place the prepared food in the main oven and ensure the door is fully closed.
Select 90 (Slow Cooking Temperature) by turning Main Oven Control clockwise.
Storage and re-heating of food:
1.
2.
3.
4.
If food is to be frozen or not used immediately, place it in a clean container
and cool as soon as possible.
Always thaw frozen food completely in the refrigerator before re-heating.
Always reheat food thoroughly and ensure it is piping hot before serving.
Only re-heat food once.
Points to consider when preparing food for “SLOW” cooking:
1.
Make sure that the dishes to be used will fit into the oven ensuring enough room for
air to circulate.
2. All dishes cooked on the slow setting will require a minimum of 6 hours, however, if
they are cooked for 1-2 hours longer then deterioration in their appearance may be
noticed.
3. Never cook joints of meat over 2.7kg (6 lb) or poultry over 2.0kg (4lb 8oz).
We do not recommend that joints of meat or poultry are stuffed before cooking on
the slow setting.
4. To seal in the meat juices, always cook meat or poultry at 170oC for 30 minutes before
wrapping in foil and placing on a rack over a tin (to allow good air
circulation) before turning the control to the slow setting and cooking immediately.
5. Always ensure that joints of pork and poultry are thoroughly cooked by checking
with a meat thermometer before serving.
6. Always thaw frozen foods completely before cooking. We do not recommend placing
frozen food in the oven to cook.
7. Always bring soups, liquids and casseroles to the boil before placing in the oven.
8. Ensure that casserole dishes have a good seal (not airtight) and cover to the top with
foil to prevent loss of moisture.
9. Ensure that fruit and vegetables are cut into even sized small pieces to cook properly.
10. Always adjust seasoning before serving.
11. If using dried red kidney beans it is important that the beans are soaked and then
boiled for a minimum of 10 minutes before using in any dish to destroy any toxins.
12. When cooking fish or egg dishes it may be necessary to check during cooking to avoid
overcooking.
25
Care and Cleaning
90
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.
Ceramic hob
(EDC / ETCW51)
To reduce the amount of cleaning always ensure that the hob and cooking utensils are clean and dry before use. Regular use of cleaner conditioner is recommended for proper care and protection of the hob surface. Apply conditioner before using the hob for the first time. It contains
a mild cleaning agent, so that subsequent applications may clean off soil
and apply a protective film at the same time. For stubborn stains or
heavy soiling use any of the following materials, and finish off with conditioner.
1. Jif, non-scratch scouring cream.
2. Liquid Gumption Kitchen Cleanser.
3. Special Powder Cleanser.
Powder Cleanser – Mineral deposits that are present in hard water, and
some foods, may cause ‘discolourations’ that appear in the form of grey
or brown stains. The stains sometimes appear to be in or under the glass
surface. If there are some persistent stains after using any of the other
recommended cleaning materials, powder cleanser may be applied, following the manufacturers instructions. Do not use abrasive cleaners or
the powder cleanser on the painted metal framework.
Cleaner Conditioner – Regular use of the conditioner will make the surface easier to clean thus ensuring that years of heavy abrasive cleaning
do not progressively dull the surface.
Electric sealed hotplates
(ETW51)
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.
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.
26
Care and Cleaning
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.
Decorative trims
It is advisable to clean the decorative trims regularly to prevent any build
up of soiling. The recommended method of cleaning is to wipe over the
trims with a soft cloth wrung out in hot water or mild non-abrasive cleaner.
(If in doubt try the cleaner on a small area of trim which is not noticeable in
normal use). Then, after wiping with a cloth wrung out in clear water, dry
with a soft clean cloth.
Doors
Wipe over the outer door glass panels with a cloth wrung out in hot soapy
water, then after wiping with a cloth wrung out in clear water, dry with a soft
clean cloth. Ensure that glass doors are not subjected to any sharp
mechanical blows.
Glass Inner Door Panel (where fitted) – open the door fully and unscrew the
two screws securing the glass panel, taking care not to allow the glass to fall.
The glass panel may now be washed at the sink. Stubborn stains can be
removed by using a fine steel wool soap pad. Ensure the glass panel is not
subjected to any sharp mechanical blows. Take particular care not to damage
the inner surface which is coated with a heat reflective layer. After cleaning,
rinse and dry with a soft cloth. For slight soiling the inner glass panel may be
cleaned, while still warm, without removing it from the door.
Take care during cleaning not to damage or distort the door seals. Do not lift
the door seal from the oven chassis, if necessary remove the seal by carefully
unhooking the corner clips.
Warning: Oven must not be operated with inner door glass removed.
Take care during cleaning not to damage or distort the door seals. Do not lift
the door seal from the oven chassis, if necessary remove the seal by carefully
unhooking the corner clips.
Take care that the rating label edges are not lifted during cleaning, and
furthermore that the lettering is not blurred or removed.
Ovens
Remove the rod shelves and meat pan.
Use a fine steel wool soap pad to remove stubborn stains from the
rod shelves, meat pan and the floor of the oven.
27
Care and Cleaning
Oven liners
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 soiling, to run the oven without
a meat pan 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.
It should not normally be necessary to clean the ‘Credaclean’ panels in water. If
desirable remove the rod shelves and wash them in warm soapy water, followed
by rinsing in clean water.
Oven lamp
replacement
28
Open the oven door and remove the rod shelves. Using a suitable cloth to
protect the fingers grip the light glass dome, unscrew anti-clockwise and
lift. Reach into the aperture, and unscrew the lamp anti-clockwise. Fit
replacement lamp (15W 300°C rated SES), refit dome.
Warning: Switch off the appliance at the wall mounted cooker control unit
before replacing the oven lamp.

1. Too large baking sheet used. (See 'Cookery Notes')
2. Over loading of oven and always ensure even air
gaps around baking tins.
Ensure that the shelf is level (see above) and that the
food is positioned centrally in the oven.
Ensure that the cooking utensil used in the top oven is
not larger than 12ins x 9ins, e.g. the main oven meat pan.
Only cook one item at a time to avoid overloading the
oven.
Operating the cooker under the following conditions may cause a
safety cut-out to operate:
a) grilling with the top oven door shut;
b) grilling for excessive long periods at maximum settings.
Switch off the appliance and allow the cooker to cool for
approx. 30 minutes. Switch the cooker back on again and
check that the grill/top oven is now operating correctly.
Grill does not work.
Ensure the grill/top oven control has been turned to grill
