Using the Meat Probe (some models only)



Setting the Temperature for Meat Probe

The meat probe is supplied with some models only. For other models it may be purchased separately. For further information or to purchase a meat probe, contact Customer Care, your authorised service centre or visit our website:

Use your meat probe to accurately judge when meat is perfectly cooked.

The meat probe will gauge the core temperature of the meat and will stop cooking when the selected temperature has been reached.

  • Always remove the probe using the grip. Removing it by pulling the cable, may cause damage.
  • Make sure food is completely defrosted before using the probe.
  • The meat probe is not enabled for all functions, for example the meat probe function cannot be used when using the recipe function.
  • If the meat probe is fitted during a function it is not enabled for, a removal message will appear on the display.
  • If the meat probe is accidentally removed during operation, a warning message appears on the display.
  • The temperature of the probe can be set between 40°C and 100°C.
  • The oven stores the last temperature set by the user. 


  • The probe socket is located in the upper left corner of the oven cavity, protected by a metal cover.

Keep the metal cover in a safe place when using the meat probe, as this will need to be re-inserted for use in other cooking modes. Using Meat Probe_#2.PNG


Insert the tip of the probe into the center of the thickest part of the fully defrosted meat. The thicker the meat, the longer it will take to cook, so it is important that the probe is measuring the temperature of the meat at its thickest point.

Make sure the probe does not touch bone, fat or gristle, as these will heat up more quickly than the lean meat.

The meat probe icon will appear on the display Meat Probe.PNG.

When a cooking mode is selected with the probe inserted, a display page will appear where you can select the settings for the meat probe
