Select foods which require the same cooking time and temperature.
To ensure food does not cool down and does not require reheating
set the end time so that the food is ready when you require it.
Always ensure that meat and poultry is defrosted before placing in
the oven.
Whenever possible, take food out of the refrigerator and keep is as cool
as possible.
If cooking food that requires frying before placing in the oven for auto
cooking, keep the delay start time to a minimum,.
Never place hot or warm food in the oven for delay start cooking as it
could cause the oven to be warm and produce harmful bacteria in food.
We advise that dishes containing left-over, cooked poultry or meat eg.
Shepherd’s Pie, should not be cooked automatically if there is to be a
time delay period.
Ensure that delay start times are kept to a minimum to prevent
bacterial growth in food.
Wine or beer may ferment and cream may curdle during the delay
period so it is best to add these ingredients just before serving.
Foods which discolour should be protected by coating in fat or
tossing in water to which lemon juice has been added, prior to
placing food in the oven.
Dishes containing liquid should not be filled too full to prevent
boiling over.
Food should be well sealed (but not airtight) in a container to
prevent the loss of liquid during cooking. Aluminium foil gives a
good seal.
Always ensure that food is piping hot and cooked thoroughly before
serving.
Only reheat food once.

Using the Top Oven for Solarplus Grilling
Your cooker is not fitted with a conventional grill. Creda have developed a Solarplus
high speed grill which is designed to reduce your grilling times. It is quicker because it
takes less time to warm up from cold. Conventional grills require 5 minutes pre-heat
before food is placed beneath them, but for normal grilling the Solarplus grill can be
used directly from cold without any pre-heat.
However, when toasting, optimum performance is achieved by pre-heating the grill for
about 1 minute.
Note: You will notice that the grill elements are protected by a wire mesh. This stops
you from touching live parts.
DO NOT under any circumstances insert objects into the grill mesh as this could
damage the element wire, break the glass tubes or if the grill is on, cause electric
shock.
During use the mesh may become soiled. Care must be taken to ensure the grill mesh
is not distorted – do not store the grill pan handle on the food grid when the shelf is in
the highest position.
Grilling Procedure
1. Open the grill/top oven door fully.
2. Ensure that the Easy Glide™ Shelf is located in the correct
position.
3. Preheat the grill, if necessary, with the Easy Glide™ Shelf pulled
out (Fig 1).
4. Locate the grill pan in the Easy Glide™ Shelf (see Fig 2)and push
back under the element.
5. The grill pan should be withdrawn, always using the grill pan
handle, to the stop position to turn or remove cooked food.
(There is no need to remove the grill pan from the Easy Glide™
Shelf ).
6. NEVER line the grill pan with aluminium foil as this may cause
overheating of fat in the grill pan.
NOTE: To stop fat splashing onto the grill element mesh, it is
important to use the anti-splash tray. Always clean the grill pan
anti-splash tray and food grid after each use.
Fig 1
Fig 2
NOTE:
16
Preheat the grill if, necessary, with the Easy Glide™ Shelf pulled out (Fig.1)
Ensure that the Easy Glide™ Shelf is in the correct position.
Leave the control at 6 for toast, and for fast cooking of foods.
For thicker foods requiring longer cooking, turn the switch to a lower setting after the
initial sealing on both sides at 6. The thicker the food, the lower the control should be set.
DO NOT line the grill pan with aluminium foil, as this increases the amount of fat spitting
which can cause a fire.
After use always return both controls to their OFF (0) position.

Guide to Solarplus Grilling
Using the Top Oven as a Convection Oven
The top oven should be used to cook small quantities of food. The oven is
designed so that the grill element operates at a reduced heat output, this
is combined with a heating element situated underneath the floor of the
oven. To ensure even cooking of the food it is important that cooking
utensils are positioned correctly on the oven shelf so that the element is
directly above. As a guide, the front of the utensil should be approx.
100mm (4”) from the front of the shelf.
Easy Glide™ Shelf The Easy Glide™ Shelf, in conjunction with the grill pan supplied can be
used for cooking in the oven(s), ie. meat, poultry etc. also for roasting
vegetables. Place the Easy Glide™ Shelf in the oven on the same runner
position as stated in the meat cooking charts.
Important:
Always remove the grill pan handle from the grill pan when the pan is
being used for oven cooking.
Always use oven gloves when basting, turning or removing food from the
oven, as the Easy Glide™ Shelf and the grill pan will be hot.
Never remove the Easy Glide™ Shelf from the oven with the grill pan and
food still in position.
Note: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be
necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10oC. It may also be necessary to

Plate Warming
Place the plates/dishes on shelf position 1 from the base of the top oven, and turn top
oven temperature and grill selection control (B) to 100oC for 10-15 minutes.
Never use the grill setting control (A) when warming plates.
Top Oven Utensils
Do Not use: Meat Pans and Baking Trays larger than – 225mm x 300mm (9”x12”)
DO NOT use the main oven meat pan as a meat pan in the top oven, as the air
circulation will be seriously restricted.

Main Oven (Pre-Heat)
Fan Oven Mode
Fan Ovens provide even distribution of heat, allowing food to be cooked anywhere in
the oven at the same temperature, ideal for batch baking.
Pre-heating is not necessary in the fan oven mode for most foods because the oven
element is situated around the fan blade which in turn circulates the hot air evenly
around the oven quickly.
Side Heat Mode
This is an oven mode long favoured for traditional British cooking.
The heating elements at the side create different temperature zones with the hottest
at the top and the coolest at the bottom. This allows you to cook at different
temperatures on different shelves.
The unique design of the Creda Smartcook™ oven permits an initial boost that
reduces the usual pre-heat time of approximately 15-20 minutes in a non-fan oven to
approximately 8-9 minutes (based on 180˚C). During the initial boost both the side
and the rear elements are on as well as the fan. When the oven reaches temperature
in this mode, the fan will remain on for a further 4 minutes after opening the door
and will then switch off automatically.
21
Using the Main Oven for Fan Cooking
Since a circulaire fan oven heats up more quickly and generally cooks food at a
lower temperature than a conventional oven, pre-heating is often unnecessary. For
guides on “pre-heating”, “cooking temperatures” and “cooking times” see “Oven
Temperature Charts” later in book.
Note: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to
increase or decrease temperatures by 10oC. It may also be necessary to increase or decrease
cooking times.
Main oven shelf positioning for Fan Oven
Most foods will cook satisfactorily on any shelf position, due to even distribution of
heat in the main oven, but the shelves must be evenly spaced.
The top oven rod shelf can be used in the main oven when cooking large quantities
of food. (N.B. Maximum 3 shelves in the main oven).
Food or utensils should never be placed directly on the floor of the oven
for cooking.
DO NOT allow young children near to the appliance when the main oven is in use as the
surfaces get extremely hot.
Easy Glide™ Shelf
The Easy Glide™ Shelf, in conjunction with the grill pan supplied can be used for cooking in
the oven(s), ie. meat, poultry etc. also for roasting vegetables. Place the Easy Glide™ Shelf in
the oven on the same runner position as stated in the meat cooking chart.
Important:
Always remove the grill pan handle from the grill pan, when the pan is being used for oven
cooking.
Always use oven gloves when basting, turning or removing food from the oven, as the Easy
Glide™ Shelf and the pan will be hot.
Never remove the Easy Glide™ Shelf from the oven with the pan and food still in position.

Do Not Use:
Meat Pans larger than
Baking Trays larger than
– 375mm x 300mm (15”x12”)
– 325mm x 250mm (13”x10”)
Temperature and Time
When all three shelves are in use to cook large quantities of food, it may be
necessary to increase the cooking times given in the temperature charts by a few
minutes,to allow for the loss of heat due to extra time taken to load the oven, and the
larger mass of food. Baking trays should have an even gap around the oven.

during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.
Note: When you have finished using your cooker, always return the controls to their OFF (●) position. At the
end of the cooking period there may be a momentary puff of steam when the door is opened. This will disperse
in a few seconds and is a perfectly normal characteristic of an oven with a good door seal.
22
Using the Main Oven for Convection Cooking (Side Heat)
With convection cooking the oven needs to be pre-heated before use. For guides on
“pre-heating”, “cooking temperatures”, “cooking times” and shelf positions, see “Oven
Temperature Charts” (convection cooking) later in book.
Note: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to
increase or decrease temperatures by 10oC. It may also be necessary to increase or decrease
cooking times.
Main oven shelf positioning for Convection Cooking
Shelves must be positioned as recommended in the cooking charts (convection
oven)
(N.B. A maximum of 2 shelves to be used in the main oven).
Food or utensils should never be placed directly on the floor of the oven
for cooking.
DO NOT allow young children near to the appliance when the main oven is in use as the
surfaces get extremely hot.
Easy Glide™ Shelf
The Easy Glide™ Shelf, in conjunction with the grill pan supplied can be used for cooking in
the oven(s), ie. meat, poultry etc. also for roasting vegetables. Place the Easy Glide™ Shelf in

Using the Main Oven for Other Functions
90
“SLOW” Setting (FAN OVEN only)
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.
The kitchen stays cooler.
Operation:
1.
2.
3.
Place the prepared food in the main oven and ensure the door is fully closed.
Turn the Main Oven selector (D) clockwise to the FAN OVEN position.
Select 90 (Slow Cooking Temperature) by turning Main Oven Temperature
Control (C) clockwise ensuring the oven door is fully closed.
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.

meat pan in the top oven.
IF USING ALUMINIUM FOIL
1. Never allow foil to touch sides of oven.
2. Never cover interior with foil.
3. Never cover shelves with foil.
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 of meat, or the thickest part of poultry
thighs, during the cooking period. The meat thermometer will indicate
when the required internal temperature has been reached.

Care and Cleaning
Warning: Before cleaning, please ensure that the electricity supply to the appliance is switched off
and the appliance is fully cold.
1. “CREDACLEAN” OVEN LINERS (TOP OVEN) (E530E)
TOP OVEN SIDE LINERS
(a) How "Credaclean" works.
The surfaces of the "Credaclean" oven liners are treated with a
special vitreous enamel which absorbs cooking soils.
At temperatures of 220°C (425°F) or above, the special surface
enables these soils to be slowly destroyed.
The higher the temperature the more effective it is.
(b) Cleaning.
In most cases normal cooking operations at 220°C (425°F) will
permit this cleaning operation to proceed during cooking.
However if higher cooking temperatures are not used regularly,
it may be necessary, in order to prevent heavy soiling, to run
the ovens without shelves or meat pan, at a maximum setting
for a couple of hours.
It should not normally be necessary to clean the "Credaclean"
panels with water. If the user feels it is desirable to do so, wipe
them over with a clean, soapy cloth, followed by a wipe with a
clean damp cloth.

DOORS
(b) Trims
It is advisable to clean the trims regularly to prevent any
build up of soiling which may detract from the appearance of
the cooker. The recommended method of cleaning is to wipe
over the trims with a clean, 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 clean, soft cloth.
(c) Inner Door Panels & Glass
Open the door fully. The glass panel may now be washed.
Stubborn stains can be removed by using a well soaped, fine
steel wool soap pad.
DO NOT use scouring pads, or abrasive powder, which will
scratch the glass.

Installation
Electrical Requirements
For your own safety, we recommend that your cooker is installed by a competent
person such as one who is registered with NICEIC (National Inspection Council for
Electrical Installation Contracting). The cooker should be installed in accordance with
the latest edition of the IEE Regulations.
Warning: This appliance must be earthed.
Electrical Connections
The installer must check that the voltage shown at the rating plate corresponds with
the house electricity supply.
The cooker must be supplied via a suitable double pole isolating switch, having a
contact separation of at least 3mm in all poles placed in a readily accessible position
adjacent to the cooker.
If the cooker is to be wired into a connector unit, this may be positioned behind the
cooker providing the following requirements are met:
i) The connector unit must not project from the wall more than 25mm.
ii) The top of the connector must not be more than 130mm above floor level.
Remove the terminal cover at the rear base of the cooker. Pass the cable through the
cable clamp and connect to the appropriate terminals provided.
Allow sufficient cable for any future servicing.
Tighten the screws on the cable clamp and replace the cover.
Make main connections in the connector unit or cooker control unit.
This appliance conforms to B.S. EN 55014 regarding suppression of Radio and
Television reception interference.
A double Pole control switch having a minimum rating of 32 amps should be used to
feed the cooker using a suitably rated cable.
Where a hob is fitted adjacent to or over the cooker, a 45 amp Double Pole control
switch should be used to feed both units via separate suitably rated cables.
We recommend a minimum of 4mm2 PVC insulated twin and earth cable conforming to
B.S. 6004 for connection of each appliance.
Where a hob is fitted above the cooker the cable connecting the hob to the cooker
control unit must be of 2.5mm2 85o C heat resistant cable to BS6141 table 15
In all cases adhere to routing details (see fig. 5).
This appliance must not be installed over any other appliance that generates heat
such as a plinth heater
Note: Due to many different types of installation, a mains cable is not
supplied with this product. The installer will fit the correct type and length of
cable.
35
Installation
Important
It is essential that the lower cupboard is constructed in the manner illustrated i.e.
having side, back, and roof panels so joined as to provide no apertures which could
permit access to the oven unit when installed.
1. General
The appliance is designed for mounting at a safe level into an oven housing which
must be secured to the backing wall.
2. Ventilation
a. The oven housing unit cabinet dimensions must comply with fig. 4.
b. An air gap of 50mm minimum must be provided at the rear of any top or bottom
cupboards or shelves (see fig. 1).
c. It is necessary that the cabinets are provided with unobstructed ventilation, i.e.
from adjacent cabinetry. This can be done by either raising the base of the
cabinets using the adjusting feet (or spacers) or alternatively by providing a slot in
the cabinet plinth to the dimensions in fig. 1.
d. The air gap at rear allows the warmed air to pass out of the inner cabinet space.
Where it is intended to fit cupboards above the oven unit to ceiling height, it is
essential that the warmed air is exhausted through the front of the cabinet
(see fig. 1).
e. If an oven unit is installed adjacent to a tall cabinet, steam escaping from the oven
when the door is opened could condense on and maybe stain the adjacent
surface. To prevent permanent staining, the adjacent surface should be made of a
material that is heat resisting and easy to clean. Adjacent tall cabinets should not
be deeper than the oven housing cabinet.
3. Final Installation
a. Using a spirit level, check that the housing cabinet is level from side to side and
from front to back in its installed position.
b. Correct any unevenness by placing spacers under the bottom of the cabinet.
Make sure that the cabinet rests firmly on the floor without rocking.
c. Before the oven is fitted, the cabinet must be firmly secured to the backing wall for
stability.
d. The oven unit should now be lifted (this is a two person lift) into the cabinet and
pushed fully home.
e. Finally, the oven is secured to the cabinet by means of the four Pozi Wash Head
screws - two through each side trim.
f. Remove all packaging material from the grill and oven interior.

4 x Pozi Wash Head No. 6 x 15mm screws.
