GB2
- The accessible parts of the appliance may become very hot during use.
Young children should be kept away from the appliance and supervised to
ensure that they do not play with it.
- The appliance and its accessible parts become hot during use. Care should
be taken to avoid touching heating elements. Children less than 8 years old
shall be kept away, unless continuosly supervised.
- During and after use, do not touch the heating elements or interior surfaces
of the appliance - risk of burns. Do not allow the appliance to come into
contact with cloths or other flammable materials until all the components
have cooled sufficiently.
- At the end of cooking, exercise caution when opening the appliance door,
letting the hot air or steam exit gradually before accessing the oven. When
the appliance door is shut, hot air is vented from the aperture above the
control panel. Do not obstruct the vent apertures.
- Use oven gloves to remove pans and accessories, taking care not to touch
the heating elements.
- Do not place flammable materials in or near the appliance: a fire may break
out if the appliance is inadvertently switched on.
- Do not heat or cook sealed jars or containers in the appliance. The pressure
that builds up inside might cause the jar to explode, damaging the
appliance.

- Overheated oils and fats catch fire easily. Always remain vigilant when
cooking foods rich in fat and oil.
- Never leave the appliance unattended during food drying.
- If alcoholic beverages are used when cooking foods (e.g. rum, cognac,
wine), remember that alcohol evaporates at high temperatures. As a result,
there is a risk that vapours released by the alcohol may catch fire upon
coming into contact with the electrical heating element.
- Never use steam cleaning equipment.
- Do not touch the oven during the pyrolysys cycle. Keep children away from
the oven during the pyrolysis cycle.(only for ovens with Pyrolisis function).
- Only use the temperature probe recommended for this oven.
- Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the
oven door glass since they can scratch the surface, which may result in
shattering of the glass.
- Ensure that the appliance is switched off before replacing the lamp to avoid
the possibility of electric shock.

How to read the cooking table
The table indicates the best function to use for any given food, to be cooked on one or more shelves at the
same time. Cooking times start from the moment food is placed in the oven, excluding pre-heating (where
required). Cooking temperatures and times are purely for guidance and will depend on the amount of food
and type of accessory used. Use the lowest recommended values to begin with and, if the food is not
cooked enough, then move on to higher values. Use the accessories supplied and preferably dark coloured
metal cake tins and oven trays. You can also use pans and accessories in pyrex or stoneware, but bear in
mind that cooking times will be slightly longer. To obtain best results, carefully follow the advice given in
the cooking table for the choice of accessories (supplied) to be placed on the various shelves.
Cooking different foods at the same time
Using the “FORCED AIR” function, you can cook different foods which require the same cooking
temperature at the same time (for example: fish and vegetables), using different shelves. Remove the food
which requires less cooking time and leave food which requires longer cooking time in the oven.
Desserts
- Cook delicate desserts with the conventional function on one shelf only. Use dark coloured metal
cake tins and always position them on the wire shelf supplied. To cook on more than one shelf, select
the forced air function and stagger the position of the cake tins on the shelves, aiding optimum
circulation of the hot air.
- To check whether a raising cake is cooked, insert a wooden toothpick into the centre of the cake. If
the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is ready.
- If using non-stick cake tins, do not butter the edges as the cake may not rise evenly around the edges.
- If the cake “sinks” during cooking, set a lower temperature the next time, perhaps reducing the
amount of liquid in the mixture and mixing more gently.
- For sweets with moist fillings (cheesecake or fruit pies) use the “CONVECTION BAKE” function. If the
base of the cake is soggy, lower the shelf and sprinkle the bottom of the cake with breadcrumbs or
biscuit crumbs before adding the filling.
Meat
- Use any kind of oven tray or pyrex dish suited to the size of the piece of meat being cooked. For roast
joints, it is best to add some stock to the bottom of the dish, basting the meat during cooking for
added flavour. When the roast is ready, let it rest in the oven for another 10-15 minutes, or wrap it in
aluminium foil.
- When you want to grill meat, choose cuts with an even thickness all over in order to achieve uniform
cooking results. Very thick pieces of meat require longer cooking times. To prevent the meat from
burning on the outside, lower the position of the wire shelf, keeping the food farther away from the
grill. Turn the meat two thirds of the way through cooking.
To collect the cooking juices it is advisable to place a drip-tray with half a litre of water directly under the
grill on which the meat is placed. Top-up when necessary.
Turnspit (only in some models)
Use this accessory to evenly roast large pieces of meat and poultry. Place the meat on the spit rod, tying it
with string if chicken, and check that it is secure before inserting the rod in the seat located on the front
wall of the oven and resting it on the respective support. To prevent smoke and to collect cooking juices,
it is advisable to place a drip-tray with half a litre of water on the first level. The rod has a plastic handle
which must be removed before starting to cook, and used at the end of cooking to avoid burns when
taking the food out of the oven.
Pizza
Lightly grease the trays to ensure the pizza has a crispy base. Scatter the mozzarella over the pizza two
thirds of the way through cooking.
Dough proving function (only in some models)
It is always best to cover the dough with a damp cloth before placing it in the oven. Dough proving time
with this function is reduced by approximately one third compared to proving at room temperature
(20-25°C). Proving time for a 1 Kg batch of pizza dough is around one hour.
