! A temperature value between 60°C and MAX can
be set for all cooking modes except the following:
• BARBECUE (recommended: set only to MAX
• GRATIN (recommended: do not exceed 200°C).
TRADITIONAL OVEN mode
When using this traditional cooking mode, it is best
to use one cooking rack only. if more than one rack
is used, the heat will be distributed unevenly.
This mode is ideal for baking temperature sensitive
foods (such as cakes, which need to rise) and for
the preparation of "bitesize pastries" on 3 shelves
FAST COOKING mode
This mode is particularly suitable for cooking pre-
packed food quickly (frozen or pre-cooked). The
best results are achieved using one cooking rack
Since the heat remains constant throughout the
oven, the air cooks and browns food in a uniform
manner. A maximum of two racks may be used at
the same time.
This combination heats the oven rapidly by
producing a considerable amount of heat,
particularly from the element at the bottom. If you
use more than one rack at a time, switch the position
of the dishes halfway through the cooking process.
The high and direct temperature of the grill is
recommended for food which requires a high surface
temperature. Always cook in this mode with the oven
This combination of features increases the
effectiveness of the unidirectional thermal radiation
provided by the heating elements through forced
circulation of the air throughout the oven. This helps
prevent food from burning on the surface and allows
the heat to penetrate right into the food. Always
cook in this mode with the oven door closed.
FAST CLEAN mode
This mode cleans the oven automatically and thoroughly
using pyrolysis ( see Care and maintenance ).
Practical cooking advice
! Do not place racks in position 1 or 5 during fan-
assisted cooking. Excessive direct heat can burn
temperature sensitive foods.
! In the BARBECUE and GRATIN cooking modes,
place the dripping pan in position 1 to collect
cooking residues (fat and/or grease).
• Use positions 2 and 4, placing the food that
requires more heat on the rack in position 2.
• Place the dripping pan on the bottom and the rack
• Place the rack in position 3 or 4. Make sure the
food is in the centre of the rack.
• We recommend that the power level is set to
maximum. The top heating element is regulated
by a thermostat and may not always operate
• Use a light aluminium pizza pan. Place it on the
For a crispy crust, do not use the dripping pan as
it prevents the crust from forming by extending
the total cooking time.
• If the pizza has a lot of toppings, we recommend
adding the mozzarella cheese on top of the pizza
halfway through the cooking process.
