the programme or cooking time.

• After cooking is complete the cooling fan will continue working for a short time to lower the temperature

of the electrical and mechanical components.

• Recipes requiring a browned or crispy underside (ie; pies, pizza and bread), should be placed directly

on the turntable.

• Small food items such as pastries or biscuits should be cooked on the low rack so as to avoid browning

Your oven can be programmed to cook
with ten different temperatures by
combining the top and bottom grills
with the convection fan.

The temperatures available in degrees Centigrade are:
250°C, 230°C, 220°C, 200°C, 180°C,
160°C, 130°C, 100°C, 70°C, 40°C.

• CONVECTION cooking is ideal for cooking Victoria sandwich cakes, buns, biscuits and scones. See recipes

pages 54-57.

• When using the CONVECTION facility, all metal cookware can be used. See SUITABLE COOKWARE

pages 26-27. To achieve the best results when cooking by CONVECTION, always use the low metal rack
for one layer cooking, and the high rack and low rack for two layer cooking.

• Temperature measurements taken whilst the oven is in convection mode will differ slightly from the displayed

level. This is due to the grill elements turning on and off in order to regulate the oven temperature. This will
not affect the cooking results as long as the operation manual and cook book are followed properly.
