Cooking chart

The information in these charts are guidelines only. Refer to your recipe or the packaging and be prepared to adjust the cooking times and settings accordingly.

Please note:

  • The settings in the following chart are guidelines only. Follow the instructions in your recipe or on food packaging and be prepared to adjust the oven settings and baking times to achieve the best possible results for you.
  • Shelf positions are counted from the base up (1 is the lowest, 4 the highest).
  • Arrange oven shelves before you turn the oven on, then preheat the oven to the required temperature. Place items in the oven only when the long tone has sounded and the temperature dial halo has turned from red to white.*
  • Single shelf positions below use the flat oven shelf; where a multi shelf arrangement is recommended, the higher position uses the step-down shelf.
  • Due to the width of the oven, a single shelf can usually accommodate double the standard recipe.

*The colour change and tone may occur some time after the set temperature has been reached. This is because—when heating up from cold—your oven is designed to initially heat to a temperature somewhat higher than what you have set. This is to provide optimal baking conditions right from the start.
