– You are advised to use dark metal baking forms.

You may also use light baking forms in the hot air
mode. In this case, the baking time is longer.

– The values in the cooking tables apply to the

preheated oven. The temperature and duration
depend on the quantity and consistency of the
dough. This is why the tables list temperature

10 minutes with the oven switched off and closed.
This keeps the roast juicy.

– Always grill in the closed oven. If possible, grilled

pieces should be equally thick, at least 2 to 3 cm.
When this is the case, they will brown evenly and
will stay nice and juicy. Never grill steaks salted!
Place pieces for grilling directly on the grid iron.

– Poultry becomes particularly crispy brown if you

coat it with butter, salt water, dripped-off fat or
orange juice.

– Even sensitive frozen food is thawed gently and

fast. Place the frozen food on the grid iron and
turn the “Temperature" control knob to the “Light"
position. Use the grilling tray to collect the liquid
from thawing.

– When roasting put a little bit of water into the

grilling tray and place it one level below the grid
iron. This ensures that the juices of the meat are
collected and the oven stays clean.

– In the case of duck or goose, pierce the skin

under the wings to allow the fat to drain off.
