Always position the burner cap exactly over the burner cup.
Openings on the burner cup are always unobstructed. All parts
must be dry.
1. Open the top cover. The top cover must remain open for as
long as the oven is in operation.
2. Turn the switch for the desired burner anticlockwise to the
large flame symbol —.
3. Press and hold the burner knob and press the ignition button
at the same time. The gas burner ignites.
4. Press and hold the burner knob for approximately 1-3
seconds. The safety pilot is activated. If the gas flame goes
out, the gas supply is automatically interrupted by the safety
pilot.
5. Set the desired flame size. Between setting û Off and setting
—, the flame is not stable. Therefore, always choose a setting
between — large and ˜ small flame.
6. If the flame goes out again, repeat the process from step 2.

* Option (for models with an electric hotplate)
** Option (for models with a wok burner)
Use pans which are the right
size for each burner.
Do not use small pans on
large burners. The flame must
not touch the sides of the pan.
Do not use damaged pans,
which do not sit evenly on the
hob. Pans may tip over.
Only use pans with a thick, flat
base.
Do not cook without using a lid
and make sure the lid is
properly fitted. This wastes
energy.
Always place the ovenware
centrally over the burner.
Otherwise, there is a risk that it
may tip over.
Place the pans on the pan
supports, never directly on the
burner.
Make sure that the pan
supports and burner caps are
correctly positioned before
using the appliance.
Pans should be placed on the
hob carefully.
Do not strike the hob and do
not place excessive weight on
it.
Never use two burners or heat
sources to heat one single
pan.
Do not use grill pans,
earthenware casserole dishes,
etc. for a long period of time
on maximum power.

7. To end the cooking process: Turn the burner knob û
clockwise to the Off position.
The ignition device should not be actuated for more than 15
seconds. If the burner does not light within 15 seconds, wait for
at least one minute. Then repeat the ignition process.
The gas burner does not ignite
If there is a power cut or if the ignition plugs are damp, you can
light the gas burners with a gas lighter or a match.
Table - Cooking
Select the right saucepan size for each burner. The diameter of
the pot or pan base should be the same as that of the burner.
Cooking times depend on the type, weight and quality of the
food. Deviations are therefore possible. You yourself can best
judge the optimal cooking time.
Minerals and vitamins are very quickly destroyed during
cooking. Therefore, only use a little water. This will help you
retain vitamins and minerals. Select short cooking times so that
the vegetables remain firm and full of nutrients.

Care and cleaning
With attentive care and cleaning, your hob and oven will retain
its looks and remain in good working order for a long time. We
will explain here how you should care for and clean them
correctly.
Notes
■ Slight differences in the colours on the front of the oven are
caused by the use of different materials, such as glass,
plastic and metal.
■ Shadows on the door panel which look like streaks, are
caused by reflections made by the oven light.
■ Enamel is baked on at very high temperatures. This can
cause some slight colour variations. This is normal and does
not affect operation. The edges of thin trays cannot be
completely enamelled. As a result, these edges can be
rough. This will not impair the anti-corrosion protection.
Upper glass cover
Before opening the top cover, remove any spills with a cloth.
Use glass cleaner if possible.
For cleaning, remove the top cover. To do this, hold the cover
securely on both sides with both hands and pull it upwards.
If the cover hinges become loose, note the letters marked on
them. The hinge with the letter R must be fitted on the right, and
the hinge with the letter L must be fitted on the left.
After cleaning, re-assemble the top cover following the same
procedure in reverse order.
Only close the top cover once the burners have cooled down.
Cleaning agents
Damage to the various different surfaces caused by using the
wrong cleaning agent can be avoided by observing the
following instructions.
When cleaning the hob do not use
■ undiluted washing-up liquid or dishwasher detergent,
■ scouring pads,
■ abrasive cleaning agents such as oven cleaner or stain
remover,
■ high-pressure cleaners or steam jets.
■ Do not clean individual parts in the dishwasher.
When cleaning the oven do not use
■ sharp or abrasive cleaning agents,
■ cleaning agent with a high alcohol content,
■ scouring pads,
■ high-pressure cleaners or steam jets.
■ Do not clean individual parts in the dishwasher.
Wash new sponges thoroughly before first use.
Stainless steel
fronts
Wipe with some washing-up liquid and a damp cloth. Always wipe parallel to the natural grain. Otherwise,
you may scratch the surface. Dry with a soft cloth. Remove flecks of limescale, grease, starch and albumin
(e.g. egg white) immediately. Do not use any abrasive materials, scouring sponges or rough cleaning
cloths. The stainless steel fronts can be polished using a special care product. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions. You can purchase special stainless steel cleaner from our after-sales service or from specialist
retailers.
Enamel surfaces and
lacquered surfaces
Clean with some washing-up liquid and a damp cloth. Dry with a soft cloth.
Burners and steel
grid of the gas burn-
ers
Do not clean in the dishwasher. Remove the wire rack and clean with a sponge, washing-up liquid and
some hot water. Remove the burner cup and cap. Clean with a sponge and some hot water and washing-up
liquid. Ensure that the gas outlets on the burner cups are clean and unobstructed. Brush the igniters with a
small, soft brush. The gas burners only work properly when the igniters are clean. Remove food residue
from the burner shells with some washing-up liquid and a damp cloth. Only use a little water. Water must
not be allowed to enter the appliance. Ensure that the nozzle opening does not become blocked or dam-
aged during cleaning. Dry all parts after cleaning and place the burner cover accurately on the burner cup.
If the parts are not positioned accurately, it will be harder to ignite the burner. The burner covers are coated
with black enamel. Due to the high temperatures, discolouration may occur. This will not impair the function
of the burner. Replace the wire rack in the oven.
Electric hob (option) Clean with the hard side of a scouring sponge and some liquid scouring agent. After cleaning, switch the
hob on briefly to dry it. Wet hobs rust over time. Then apply a care product. Always remove spilt liquids and
food residue immediately.
Metal ring of the
electric hob (option)
The metal ring may discolour with time. However, it is possible restore the original colour. Clean the ring
with the hard side of a scouring sponge and some liquid scouring agent. When doing so, make sure that
you do not scour the adjacent surfaces, as this could damage them.
Knobs Clean with some washing-up liquid and a damp cloth. Dry with a soft cloth.
Door glass Can be cleaned with glass cleaner. Do not use any abrasive cleaning agents or sharp metal objects. These
could scratch and damage the surface of the glass panel.
Seal Wipe with a damp cloth. Dry with a soft cloth.
Oven interior Clean with hot water or vinegar solution. For heavy soiling: Only use oven cleaner on cold surfaces.
Glass cover on the
oven light
Clean with some washing-up liquid and a damp cloth. Dry with a soft cloth.
Accessories Soak in hot soapy water. Clean with a brush or a sponge.

Clean the rails with washing-up liquid and a sponge. For
stubborn deposits of dirt, use a brush.
Installing the frames
1. Insert the two hooks carefully into the upper holes. (Figure A-
B)
: Incorrect assembly!
Never move the frame before the two hooks are fully
anchored in the upper holes. The enamel could be damaged
and may break (figure C).
2. the two hooks must be inserted fully into the upper holes.
Now move the frame slowly and carefully downwards and
insert in the lower holes (figure D).
3. Insert both frames into the side walls of the oven (figure E).
If the rails are fitted correctly, the distance between the two
upper shelf positions is greater.
Detaching and attaching the oven door
For cleaning purposes and to remove the door panels, you can
detach the oven door.
The oven door hinges each have a locking lever. When the
locking levers are closed (figure A), the oven door is secured in
place. It cannot be detached. When the locking levers are open
in order to detach the oven door (Fig. B), the hinges are locked.
They cannot snap shut.
: Risk of injury!
Whenever the hinges are not locked, they snap shut with great
force. Ensure that the locking levers are always fully closed or,
when detaching the oven door, fully open.
Aluminium baking
tray (option)
Do not clean in the dishwasher. Never use oven cleaner. To avoid scratches, never touch the metal sur-
faces with a knife or similar sharp object. Wipe the surfaces horizontally and without applying pressure with
soapy water and a soft window cloth or a lint-free microfibre cloth. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any
abrasive materials, scouring sponges or rough cleaning cloths. They could scratch the baking tray
Childproof lock
(option)
If a childproof lock has been fitted on the oven door, it must be removed before cleaning. Soak all plastic
parts in hot soapy water and wash with a sponge. Dry with a soft cloth. If very dirty, the childproof lock will
not work properly.

Energy and environment tips
Here you can find tips on how to save energy when baking and
roasting in the oven and when cooking on the hob, and how to
dispose of your appliance properly.
Saving energy with your oven
■ Only preheat the oven if this is specified in the recipe or in
the operating instruction tables.
■ Use dark, black lacquered or enamelled baking tins. They
absorb the heat particularly well.
■ Open the oven door as infrequently as possible while
cooking, baking or roasting.
■ It is best to bake more than one cake, one after the other.
The oven is still warm. This reduces the baking time for the
second cake. You can also place two loaf tins next to each
other.
■ For longer cooking times, you can switch the oven off
10 minutes before the end of the cooking time and use the
residual heat to finish cooking.
Saving energy with the gas hob
■ Always use a saucepan which is the correct size for your
food. A larger, less full saucepan requires a lot of energy.
■ Always place a suitable lid on the saucepan.
■ The gas flame must always be in contact with the base of the
saucepan.
Environmentally-friendly disposal
Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-friendly manner.
Tested for you in our cooking studio
Here you will find a selection of dishes and the ideal settings for
them. We will show you which type of heating and which
temperature are best suited for your dish. You can find
information about suitable accessories and the height at which
they should be inserted. There are also tips about cookware
and preparation methods.
Notes
■ The values in the table always apply to dishes placed into the
cooking compartment when it is cold and empty.
Only preheat the appliance if the table specifies that you
should do so. Do not line the accessories with greaseproof
paper until after they have been preheated.
■ The times specified in the tables are guidelines only. They will
depend on the quality and composition of the food.
■ Use the accessories supplied. Additional accessories may be
obtained as special accessories from specialist retailers or
from the after-sales service.
Before using the oven, remove any unnecessary accessories
and ovenware from the cooking compartment.
■ Always use oven gloves when taking hot accessories or
ovenware out of the cooking compartment.
Cakes and pastries
Baking tins
It is best to use dark-coloured metal baking tins.
Baking times are increased when light-coloured baking tins
made of thin metal or glass dishes are used, and cakes do not
brown so evenly.
If you wish to use silicone baking tins, use the information and
recipes provided by the manufacturer as a guide. Silicone
baking tins are often smaller than normal tins. The amount of
mixture and recipe instructions may differ.
Tables
The tables show the ideal type of heating for the various cakes
and pastries. The temperature and baking time depend on the
amount and composition of the mixture. This is why
temperature ranges are given in the tables. You should try the
lower temperature first, since a lower temperature results in
more even browning. You can increase the temperature next
time if necessary.
If you preheat the oven, the baking time is shortened by 5 to 10
minutes.
Additional information can be found in the Baking tips section
following the tables.
This appliance is labelled in accordance with European
Directive 2012/19/EU concerning used electrical and
electronic appliances (waste electrical and electronic
equipment - WEEE). The guideline determines the
framework for the return and recycling of used
appliances as applicable throughout the EU.

How to tell whether sponge cake is
baked through.
Approximately 10 minutes before the end of the baking time specified in the recipe, stick
a cocktail stick into the cake at the highest point. If the cocktail stick comes out clean,
the cake is ready.
The cake collapses. Use less fluid next time or set the oven temperature 10 degrees lower. Observe the
specified mixing times in the recipe.
The cake has risen in the middle but is
lower around the edge.
Do not grease the sides of the springform cake tin. After baking, loosen the cake care-
fully with a knife.
The cake goes too dark on top. Place it lower in the oven, select a lower temperature and bake the cake for a little
longer.
The cake is too dry. When it is done, make small holes in the cake using a cocktail stick. Then drizzle fruit
juice or an alcoholic beverage over it. Next time, select a temperature 10 degrees higher
and reduce the baking time.

Meat, poultry, fish
Ovenware
You may use any heat­resistant ovenware. The baking tray is
also suitable for large roasts.
Glass ovenware is the most suitable. The lid of the roasting dish
should fit well and close properly.
Add a little more liquid when using enamelled roasting dishes.
With roasting dishes made of stainless steel, browning is not so
intense and the meat may be somewhat less well done.
Increase the cooking times.
Information in the tables:
Ovenware without a lid = uncovered
Ovenware with a lid = covered
Always place the ovenware in the centre of the wire rack.
Place hot glass ovenware on a dry mat after cooking. The glass
could crack if placed on a cold or wet surface.
Roasting
Add in a little liquid if the meat is lean. Cover the base of the
ovenware with approx. ½ cm of liquid.
Add liquid generously for pot roasts. Cover the base of the
ovenware with approx. 1 - 2 cm of liquid.
The amount of liquid depends on the type of meat and the
material the ovenware is made of. If preparing meat in an
enamelled roasting dish, it will need a little more liquid than if
cooked in glass ovenware.
Roasting dishes made from stainless steel are not ideal. The
meat cooks more slowly and browns less fully. Use a higher
temperature and/or a longer cooking time.
Tips for grilling
When grilling, preheat the oven for approx. 3 minutes, before
placing the food into the cooking compartment.
Always grill with the oven door closed.
As far as possible, the pieces of food you are grilling should be
of equal thickness. This will allow them to brown evenly and
remain succulent and juicy.
Turn the food you are grilling after Z of the time.
Do not add salt to steaks until they have been grilled.
Place the food to be grilled directly on the wire rack. If you are
grilling a single piece, the best results are achieved by placing
it in the centre of the wire rack.
Also insert the baking tray at level 1. The meat juices are
collected in the pan and the oven is kept cleaner.
When grilling, do not insert the baking tray or universal pan at
level 4 or 5. The high heat distorts it and the cooking
compartment can be damaged when removing it.
The grill element switches on and off continually. This is normal.
The grill setting determines how frequently this will happen.
Meat
Turn pieces of meat halfway through the cooking time.
When the roast is ready, turn off the oven and allow it to rest for
an additional 10 minutes. This allows better distribution of the
meat juices.
After cooking, wrap sirloin in aluminium foil and leave it to rest
for 10 minutes in the oven.
For roast pork with a rind, score the rind in a crossways pattern,
then lay the roast in the dish with the rind at the bottom.
The bread or cake (e.g. cheesecake)
looks good, but is soggy on the inside
(sticky, streaked with water).
Use slightly less fluid next time and bake for slightly longer at a lower temperature. For
cakes with a moist topping, bake the base first. Sprinkle it with almonds or bread crumbs
and then place the topping on top. Follow the recipe and baking times.
The cake is unevenly browned. Select a slightly lower temperature to ensure that the cake is baked more evenly. Bake
delicate pastries on one level using % Top/bottom heating. Protruding greaseproof
paper can affect the air circulation. For this reason, always cut greaseproof paper to fit
the baking tray.
The bottom of a fruit cake is too light. Place the cake one level lower the next time.
The fruit juice overflows. Next time, use the deeper universal pan, if you have one.
Small baked products made out of yeast
dough stick to one another when bak-
ing.
There should be a gap of approx. 2 cm around each item. This gives enough space for
the baked items to expand well and brown on all sides.
Condensation forms when you bake
moist cakes.
Baking may result in the formation of water vapour, which escapes above the door. The
steam may settle and form water droplets on the control panel or on the fronts of adja-
cent units. This is a natural process.

Poultry
The weights indicated in the table refer to oven-ready poultry
(without stuffing).
Place whole poultry on the lower wire rack breast-side down.
Turn after Z of the specified time.
Turn roasts, such as rolled turkey joint or turkey breast, halfway
through the cooking time. Turn poultry portions after Z of the
time.
For duck or goose, pierce the skin on the underside of the
wings. This allows the fat to run out.
Poultry will turn out particularly crispy and brown if you baste it
towards the end of the roasting time with butter, salted water or
orange juice.
If you are grilling directly on the wire rack, you should insert the
baking tray at level 1. The meat juices are collected in the pan
and the oven is kept cleaner.
Fish
Turn the pieces of fish after Z of the grilling time.
Whole fish does not have to be turned. Place the whole fish in
the oven in its swimming position with its dorsal fin facing
upwards. Placing half a potato or a small ovenproof container
in the belly of the fish will make it more stable.
If you are grilling directly on the wire rack, you should also
insert the baking tray at level 1. The liquid is then collected,
keeping the oven cleaner.

Tips for roasting and grilling
Bakes, gratins, toast with toppings
If you are grilling directly on the wire rack, you should also
insert the baking tray at level 1. This keeps the oven cleaner.
Always place the ovenware on the wire rack.
How well cooked the bake is will depend on the size of the dish
and the height of the bake. The figures in the table are only
average values.
Preprepared products
Observe the instructions on the packaging.
If you line the accessories with greaseproof paper, make sure
that the paper is suitable for these temperatures. Make sure the
paper is a suitable size for the dish to be cooked.
The cooking result greatly depends on the quality of the food.
Pre-browning and irregularities can sometimes even be found
on the raw product.
The table does not contain information
for the weight of the joint.
Select the next lowest weight from the instructions and extend the time.
How to tell when the roast is ready. Use a meat thermometer (available from specialist shops) or carry out a “spoon test”.
Press down on the roast with a spoon. If it feels firm, it is ready. If the spoon can be
pressed in, it needs to be cooked for a little longer.
The roast is too dark and the crackling
is partly burnt.
Check the shelf height and temperature.
The roast looks good but the juices are
burnt.
Next time, use a smaller roasting dish or add more liquid.
The roast looks good but the juices are
too clear and watery.
Next time, use a larger roasting dish and use less liquid.
Steam rises from the roast when basted. This is normal and due to the laws of physics. The majority of the steam escapes through
the steam outlet. It may settle and form condensation on the cooler switch panel or on
the fronts of adjacent units.

Special dishes
Low temperatures are particularly good for preparing yeast
dough and home-made yoghurt.
Remove the accessories from the oven.
Preparing yoghurt
1. Bring 1 litre of milk (3.5% fat) to the boil, let it cool to 40 °C.
2. Add 150 g yoghurt (from the refrigerator) to the milk and stir
well.
3. Pour into small sealable jars and cover with cling film.
4. Place the jars on a wire rack and slide in at level 1.
5. Set the baking temperature to 50 °C and continue as
indicated.
Proving yeast dough
1. Prepare the yeast dough as usual, place it in a heat-resistant
ceramic dish and cover with a lid.
2. Preheat the oven as indicated.
3. Close the oven door and allow the yeast dough to prove in
the oven.
Preserving
For preserving, the jars and rubber seals must be clean and
intact. If possible, use jars of the same size. The information in
the table is for round, one-litre jars.
Caution!
Do not use jars that are larger or taller than this. The lids could
crack.
Only use fruit and vegetables in good condition. Wash them
thoroughly.
The times given in the tables are a guide only. The time will
depend on the room temperature, number of jars, and the
quantity and temperature of the contents. Before you switch off
the appliance or change the cooking mode, check whether the
contents of the jars are bubbling as they should.
Preparation
1. Fill the jars, but not to the top.
2. Wipe the rims of the jars, as they must be clean.
3. Place a damp rubber seal and a lid on each jar.
4. Seal the jars with the clips.
Place no more than six jars in the cooking compartment.
Making settings
1. Insert the universal pan at level 2. Arrange the jars on it so
that they do not touch each other.
2. Pour ½ litre of hot water (approx. 80 °C) into the universal
pan.
3. Close the oven door.
4. Set $ Bottom heating.
5. Set the temperature to between 170 and 180 °C.
Preserving
Fruit
After approx. 40 to 50 minutes, small bubbles begin to form at
short intervals. Switch off the oven.
After 25 to 35 minutes of residual heat, remove the preserving
jars from the cooking compartment. If they are allowed to cool
for longer in the cooking compartment, germs could multiply,
promoting acidification of the preserved fruit.
Vegetables
As soon as bubbles begin to form in the jars, set the
temperature back to between 120 and 140 °C. Depending on
the type of vegetable, heat for approx. 35 to 70 minutes. Switch
off the oven after this time and use the residual heat.
Taking out the jars
After preserving, remove the jars from the cooking
compartment.
Caution!
Do not place the hot jars on a cold or wet surface. They could
suddenly burst.

Acrylamide in foodstuffs
Acrylamide is mainly produced in grain and potato products
prepared at high temperatures, such as potato crisps, chips,
toast, bread rolls, bread or fine baked goods (biscuits,
gingerbread, cookies).
Test dishes
These tables have been produced for test institutes to facilitate
the inspection and testing of the various appliances.
In accordance with EN 50304/EN 60350 (2009) and IEC
60350.
Baking
For apple pie, place the dark springform cake tins diagonally
next to each other.
Cakes in tinplate springform cake tins:
Bake on 1 level with % Top/bottom heating Place the
springform cake tins on the baking tray instead of directly on
the wire rack.
Grilling
If you are grilling food directly on the wire rack, the baking tray
should also be inserted at level 1. The liquid is then collected,
keeping the oven cleaner.
Tips for keeping acrylamide to a minimum when preparing food
General ■ Keep cooking times to a minimum.
■ Cook meals until they are golden brown, but not too dark.
■ Large, thick pieces of food contain less acrylamide.
Baking With top/bottom heating max. 200 °C.
With 3D hot air or hot air max.180 °C.
Biscuits With top/bottom heating max. 190 °C.
With 3D hot air or hot air max. 170 °C.
Egg or egg yolk reduces the production of acrylamide.
Oven chips Spread evenly over the baking tray, in a single layer. Bake at least 400 g per baking tray
so that the chips do not dry out
