    THE GRILL PAN AND HANDLE The grill pan is supplied with a removable handle. 1. To attach the handle, place the wirework under the cut out in the pan so that the metal plate hooks over the top of the grill pan. 2.
  • Page 14: Grilling Chart

    Preheat the grill on full setting for a few minutes to seal meat or for toasting. Adjust the heat setting and the shelf as necessary during cooking. The food should be turned over during cooking as required. When using the centre section grill, ensure food is placed centrally on the grilling grid directly beneath the grill element.
  • Page 15: The Second Oven

    THE SECOND OVEN The second oven is the smaller of the two ovens. It is heated by elements in the top and bottom of the oven. It is designed for cooking smaller quantities of food. It gives especially good results if used to cook fruit cakes, sweet and savoury flans or quiche.
  • Page 16: Hints And Tips

    HINTS AND TIPS All cooking should be carried out using shelf positions one and two. Shelf positions are counted from the bottom upwards. Shelf position 3 should be reserved for grilling only. There should always be at least 2.5cm (1") between the top of the food and the element.

  • Page 18: The Main Fan Oven

    THE MAIN FAN OVEN The fan oven is particularly suitable for cooking larger quantities of food. The advantages of fan oven cooking are: PREHEATING The fan oven quickly reaches its temperature, so it is not usually necessary to preheat the oven. Without preheating however, you may find you need to add an extra 5-10 minutes on the recommended cooking times.
  • Page 19: Hints And Tips

    USING THE TELESCOPIC RUNNERS (where fitted) 1. Ensure the telescopic runners are pushed back into the oven cavity before fitting the shelf. 2. Holding the front edge of the shelf with both hands, place the rear shelf forms over the telescopic runners.
  • Page 20: The Conventional Oven

    THE CONVENTIONAL OVEN This form of cooking gives you the opportunity to cook without the fan in operation. It is particularly suitable for dishes which require extra base browning such as pizzas, quiches and flans. Gratins, lasagnes and hotpots which require extra top browning also cook well in the conventional oven. For best results cook on one level.
  • Page 21: Hints And Tips

    HINTS AND TIPS The middle shelf allows for the best heat distribution. To increase base browning simply lower the shelf position. To increase top browning, raise the shelf position. The material and finish of the baking trays and dishes used will affect Enamelware, dark heavy or non-stick utensils...

  • Page 25: Speedcook

    SPEEDCOOK Speedcook is ideal for quick preheating of the oven before selecting an alternative cooking function. It can also be used for cooking chilled and frozen convenience foods without the need for preheating. COOKING TIMES Cooking times for convenience foods should be the same or slightly quicker than those stated on the packaging.
  • Page 26: Thermal Griling

    THERMAL GRILLING Thermal grilling offers an alternative method of cooking food items normally associated with conventional grilling. The grill element and the oven fan operate together, circulating hot air around the food. The need to check and turn food is reduced. Thermal grilling helps to minimise cooking smells in the kitchen and allows you to grill in the main oven with the oven door closed.
  • Page 27: Hints And Tips

    HINTS AND TIPS Prepare foods in the same way as for conventional grilling. Brush lean meats and fish lightly with a little oil or butter to keep them moist during cooking. Most food should be placed on the grill pan grid in the 'high' position in the grill pan to allow maximum circulation of air around the food.
  • Page 28: Defrosting

    DEFROSTING This main oven function enables you to defrost most foods without heat faster than some conventional methods as the oven fan circulates air around the food. It is particularly suitable for delicate frozen foods which are to be served cold e.g. cream filled gateaux, cakes covered with icings or frostings, cheesecakes, biscuits, scones etc.
  • Page 29 Joints of meat up to 2kg/4½lb in weight can be thawed using the defrost function. All joints of meat and poultry must be thawed thoroughly before cooking. Always cook thoroughly immediately after thawing. DO NOT leave food at room temperature once it is defrosted.
  • Page 30: Helpful Hints When Buying And Preparing Food

    HELPFUL HINTS WHEN BUYING AND PREPARING FOOD Care must be taken when handling foods in the home. Always follow the basic rules of food hygiene to prevent bacterial and microbial growth cross contamination reheating, cooking, cooling, defrosting and freezing foods. 1.
