Oven - Hints and tips

icon-warning.pngWarning
Refer to Safety chapters.
icon-info.png The temperature and baking times in the tables are guidelines only. They depend on the recipes and the quality and quantity of the ingredients used.

General information

  • The appliance has four shelf positions. Count the shelf positions from the bottom of the appliance floor.

  • The appliance has a special system which circulates the air and constantly recycles the steam. With this system you can cook in a steamy environment and keep the food soft inside and crusty outside. It decreases the cooking time and energy consumption to a minimum.

  • Moisture can condense in the appliance or on the door glass panels. This is normal. Always stand back from the appliance when you open the appliance door while cooking. To decrease the condensation, operate the appliance for 10 minutes before cooking.

  • Clean the moisture after each use of the appliance.

  • Do not put the objects directly on the appliance floor and do not put aluminium foil on the components when you cook. This can change the baking results and cause damage to the enamel.

Baking

  • Your oven can bake or roast differently to the appliance you had before. Adapt your usual settings (temperature, cooking times) and shelf positions to the values in the tables.

  • The manufacturer recommends that you use the lower temperature the first time.

  • If you cannot find the settings for a special recipe, look for the one that is almost the same.

  • You can extend baking times by 10 – 15 minutes if you bake cakes on more than one shelf position.

  • Cakes and pastries at different heights do not always brown equally at first. If this occurs, do not change the temperature setting. The differences equalize during the baking procedure.

  • With longer baking times, you can deactivate the oven approximately 10 minutes before the end of the baking time and then use the residual heat.

When you cook frozen food, the trays in the oven can twist during baking. When the trays become cold again, the distortions are gone.

Baking cakes

  • Do not open the oven door before 3/4 of the set cooking time is up.

  • If you use two baking trays at the same time, keep one empty level between them.

  • The function Conventional Cooking at the default temperature is ideal for bread baking.

Cooking meat and fish

  • Use a deep pan for very fatty food to prevent the oven from stains that can be permanent.

  • Leave the meat for approximately 15 minutes before carving so that the juice does not seep out.

  • To prevent too much smoke in the oven during roasting, add some water into the deep pan. To prevent the smoke condensation, add water each time after it dries up.

Cooking times

Cooking times depend on the type of food, its consistency, and volume.

Initially, monitor the performance when you cook. Find the best settings (heat setting, cooking time, etc.) for your cookware, recipes and quantities when you use this appliance.
