cooking times. For recipes, which
require higher temperatures, best
results are achieved if the oven is
preheated first, e.g. bread, pastries,
scones, souffles, etc.
Fan oven cooking generally requires
lower temperatures than conventional
Remember to reduce temperatures

Even Heating for Baking
The fan oven has uniform heating on
all runner positions. This means that
batches of the same food can be
cooked in the oven at the same time.
However, the top shelf may brown
slightly quicker that the lower one.
This is quite usual. There is no
mixing of flavours between dishes.
The defrosting function allows you to
defrost frozen foods. The oven fan
operates without heat and circulates
the air, at room temperature, inside
the oven. This increases the rate at
which defrosting takes place.
This function is particularly suitable
for delicate food which could be
damaged by heat, e.g. cream filled
gateaux, iced cakes, pastries, bread
and other yeast products.
