Condition the oven

It is important to condition your oven before using it for cooking and baking. Conditioning will burn off any manufacturing residues and ensure that you get the best results right from the start.

  1. Make sure you have removed ALL the cable ties used to secure the shelving during transit.
  2. Make sure you have set the clock.
  3. Make sure all the shelves are fitted.

  1. Set the temperature to 200 oC for 30 minutes.

    • While the oven is heating up, the temperature indicator light will glow.

    • When the oven has reached set temperature, the temperature indicator light will go out.


If the clock has not been set, the cooling fans will come on, but the oven light will not come on and the oven will not heat up.

  1. After 30 minutes is up, select the Fan Grill function.
    After 20 minutes, switch the oven off.
  • There will be a distinctive smell and a small amount of smoke during the conditioning process as manufacturing residue is burnt off. This is normal, but make sure the kitchen is well ventilated while the oven is conditioning.
  • Once cooled, wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly.
