    D D O 6 1 G A 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 D D O 6 1 G A 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.
  • Page 9: The Grill Pan And Handle

    D D O 6 1 G A 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

    D D O 6 1 G A The hotplate You can only use the hotplate when the lid is open.

Heat control The hotplate control knobs turn anticlockwise from 'OFF' to 'HIGH'...
  • Page 11 D D O 6 1 G A For your safety 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

    D D O 6 1 G A 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

    D D O 6 1 G A 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 D D O 6 1 G A 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 Shelf on base air to circulate around the food.
  • Page 15 D D O 6 1 G A Roasting For best results we recommend open roasting using minimal fat or oil t prevent splashing. It is not necessary to cover meat or poultry or wrap food in foil whe roasting as this restricts the circulation of heat and will lead to extende cooktimes.
