  • Page 7: The Grill

    The grill The grill is a high-speed grill. The instructions below tell you how to vary the heat setting and how to change the height of the grid to suit the food you are cooking. You should remember to turn the food regularly. You should not use the grill to keep food warm as it will continue to cook the food.
  • Page 8 Cooking positions There is only one position for the grill shelf (Position 2). Positions are counted from the top downwards. Most food should be cooked on the grid in the grill pan. You can turn the grid over to suit different thicknesses of food. You can place some dishes straight on to the grill shelf.
  • Page 9: The Grill Pan And Handle

    C S I G 5 0 1 The grill pan and handle The grill pan is supplied with a removable handle. 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. Slide the handle to the left and over the central bump on the grill pan.
  • Page 10: The Hotplate

    C S I G 5 0 1 The hotplate You can only use the hotplate when the lid is open. If you have any trouble lighting a hotplate burner turn all hotplate control knobs off and make sure the hotplate burner parts have been replaced correctly. See page 27 for more information.
  • Page 11 For your safety C S I G 5 0 1 Take care to avoid burns and scalds when you are reaching across the hotplate. Use pans with flat bases. They are more stable than pans which are warped. Do not use pans with very heavy handles which cause the pan to tip.
  • Page 12: Helpful Hints

    Helpful hints Keep flames under the base of pans. If the flames lick round the sides of the pans you are wasting gas. Only heat the amount of liquid you need. Do not overfill pans. Cover pans with a lid whenever possible.
  • Page 13: The Ovens

    The ovens Before you use the ovens you should wipe them out with a damp cloth to remove any dust. Heat zones Main oven - There are zones of heat within the oven. The temperature in the middle is the gas mark you have chosen.
  • Page 14: Baking Trays And Dishes

    Most second oven cooking should be carried out using the shelf provided in shelf position 2. However when cooking a small joint or a deep cake you can use the shelf on the base of the second oven to allow enough air to circulate around the food.
  • Page 15 C S I G 5 0 1 Roasting For best results we recommend open roasting using minimal fat or oil to prevent splashing. It is not necessary to cover meat or poultry or wrap food in foil when roasting as this restricts the circulation of heat and will lead to extended cooktimes.
  • Page 16: Oven Cooking Chart - Main Oven

    Oven cooking chart Main oven These instructions are for cooking in the oven after it has been pre-heated for 20 minutes. If you are cooking more than one tray of similar items, for example cakes or biscuits, swap the trays around during cooking or you can take the top tray out of the oven when the food is cooked and move the lower tray to the higher shelf to finish cooking.
  • Page 17 Food Poultry: Chicken Turkey below 4.5kg (10lbs) over 4.5kg (10lbs) Duck and duckling Stuffed poultry The times given above are for open roasting in a preheated oven. If you cover the food with foil or a lid allow an extra 10 - 15 minutes for each ½kg (1lb).

  • Page 24: Slow Cooking

    Slow cooking Please note: There is no slow cook on the second oven. The slow cook setting gives a very low heat in the oven. It is particularly useful when you are cooking soups, stews and casseroles because the long slow cooking will make cheaper, tougher cuts of meat more tender. You need to cook food at gas mark 6 for 30 minutes before you turn the oven down to the slow cook setting.
  • Page 25 Soups, casseroles and stews Do not cook casseroles over 2.7kg (6lb). Bring to the boil on the hotplate then cook on slow cook. Cook in the middle of the oven or above. Cover food with a tight fitting lid or tin foil. Vegetables Cut into small pieces.
