Safety Safety Cooker technology is constantly improving. The way you use your new cooker may be different from the way you used your old one. Please read the whole instruction book before using your new cooker. This cooker is intended for normal domestic use. Take care of the instruction book which will be needed by the new owner if the cooker is sold or passed on to someone else.
The Cooker The Cooker Removable oven vent Hob with HEATING ZONES Control panel with controls, buttons and an information window Oven Storage drawer Plinth To make it easier to clean behind the cooker, it has wheels at the rear. To move the cooker forwards, open the oven door, lift carefully holding the upper edge and then pull the cooker out from the wall.
The safety equipment The safety equipment There should be at least 40 cm of worktops on both sides min. 40 cm min. 40 cm of the cooker . Alternatively the cooker can be SEE PICTURE installed with a wall or a tall kitchen unit on one side and a worktop on the other.
The safety equipment The door catch The door catch makes it harder for children to open the oven door/storage drawer. The catches are already activated when the cooker is supplied new, but can be deactivated if necessary. Press the catch down when you want to open the door.
The safety equipment Heat the oven empty Children should be supervised! The cooker will get very hot. Before you use the oven for the first time, you need to heat it empty. Follow these instructions: Select (top/bottom heat) and maximum tem- perature.
The ceramic hob The ceramic hob The ceramic hob has four cooking areas (heating zones). Even with the control still turned on during cooking, these areas may be seen to switch off and on at intervals, depending partly on the heat setting used. This switching can also occur with the control turned to its maximum setting, to prevent overheating.
The ceramic hob Boiling You normally start cooking with the hotplate switched to maximum heat before turning it down to a lower heat. The sound and size of the water bubbles can help you to choose the correct setting: : Simmering with tiny bubbles as in carbonated GENTLE HEAT water.
The ceramic hob Choosing suitable pans Greater attention needs to be paid to the type and con- dition of pans used on ceramic hobs than it does with radiant hobs. Here are some points to remember: • Check the pan bases. Bases which are convex (curve outwards) will tend to spin on the hob and will not conduct heat very well.
The ceramic hob Cleaning the ceramic hob Use the scraper supplied to remove spillages immediately, while the hob is still hot, especially sugar and foods with a high sugar content (e.g. jam), melted plastics and foil, all of which can damage the hob if left.
The ceramic hob Functions for safety The cooker function lock There is a lock built in to the oven’s thermostat control with two safety positions. You can choose whether to use the lock with single or double safety or not at all. NOTE The main power supply to the cooker is still connected.
The oven The oven The oven has removable side racks for the shelves (1) with seven rungs on each side. The roasting sensor socket is on the right-hand inside of the oven (2) and the fan with ring element is on the back wall of the oven (3).
The oven THE PRINCIPLE FOR FAN ASSISTED OVEN Top and bottom elements and a ring element around the fan heat the air which then spreads through the air ducts in the back wall of the oven. The hot air circulates in the oven before being drawn back in through the fan grill.
The oven Oven time Use this function to set the length of time you want the food to be in the oven. The oven turns off after the set time. TO SET THE OVEN TIME Switch the oven on by turning the function control and the thermostat control to the required positions.
The oven Practical use Never place aluminium foil, baking trays or oven dishes directly on the bottom of the oven. Block- ing heat from the bottom of the oven can damage the enamel through overheating. The oven gets hot when in use: CHILDREN NEARBY MUST BE SUPERVISED The baking tray may warp temporarily due to tempera-...
The oven Fan-assisted cooking Use the when cooking on several ASSISTED OVEN shelves at the same time, e.g. meatloaf, meatballs and complete meals (starter, main dish and dessert). Remember to choose dishes that need the same temperature. Dishes that need different amounts of time in the oven will have to be put in according to when you want them to be ready.
The oven SETTING To use the roasting sensor: Connect the sensor to the socket in the oven. The pre-set temperature is 80ºC. You can now alter the temperature using the buttons . The current temperature and the tempera- ture you have chosen are shown in the informa- tion window ( ).
The oven Turbo grill The turbo grill cooks food faster and browns it more evenly than the grill. The grill element browns the food and the fan circulates the hot air. Perfect for ‘tall’ dishes such as grilling ham to give it an even, all-round colour.
The oven Cleaning and maintenance The oven The oven surfaces are of vitreous enamel. The outer section, the door front, can easily be removed for cleaning (see “The oven door” below). IF THE OVEN IS VERY SOILED 1 Use a spatula or similar implement to remove spillages which have hardened.
The oven To change the oven light bulb Turn all controls to off and check that the oven is not hot. Unscrew the glass cover (see illustration). Unscrew the old bulb. Fit a new bulb, marked 230–240 V, 15 W and 300°C, with an E14 screw fitting.
