Suggestions for using the oven

Traditional cooking
As heat originates from top and bottom, dishes should
preferably be placed in the middle. If cooking requires
more heat from the bottom or the top, use the upper or
lower level.
Fan cooking
Heat is transmitted to dishes by hot air forcibly circulated
inside the oven by a fan placed at the back of the oven.
By this method, heat is quickly and evenly circulated
throughout the oven, permitting several different dishes
to be cooked at the same time on different levels.
With this cooking method, through the elimination of
humidity in the air and a drier environment, smells and
tastes are not given off and do not mix with those of
other dishes.
Thanks to this possibility of cooking on several levels,
you can cook up to three different dishes at the same
time, to be consumed immediately or frozen. You can
also cook on only one level. In this case, it is advisable
to place the dish on the lower level for better cooking
This oven is particularly suitable for defreezing rapidly,
sterilizing preserves, homemade jams and, finally, for
drying mushrooms and fruit.
Cooking in the multi-function
This type of oven permits difrferent types of cooking:
traditional, fanned heat and grilling; cooking can therefore
be optimized.
Using the oven
For the cooking of cakes
Pre-heat the oven, unless indicated differently, for at
least 10 minutes before use. Do not open the oven door
when cooking dishes which must raise (e.g. raised
pastries and soufflés); the jet of cold air would block the
raising process. To check if cakes are cooked, insert a
toothpick into the mixture; if it comes out clean the cake
is ready. Wait until at least 3/4 of the cooking time has
passed before doing this check.
As a general rule remember that:
a dish which is well-cooked on the outside but not
sufficiently cooked inside would have required a lower
temperature and longer cooking time. On the contrary,
a "dry" texture would have required a shorter time and
higher cooking temperature.
