Automatic cooking

  • You can set the oven to automatically turn on later, cook for a preset time (cooking time), then automatically turn off at a preset stop time. See the example and instructions below (steps 1 to 7). 
  • If you start cooking manually and only want the oven to turn off automatically after a set cooking time: simply set the cooking time following steps 1 to 3 below and selecting a function and temperature. The oven will automatically turn off when the cooking time is over. 
  • Alternatively you can simply set the time of day you wish to the oven to turn off. Follow steps 4 and 5. The oven will automatically turn off when the stop time is reached.

You may have the timer on at the same time as automatic cooking.

The grill element will come on while the oven is heating up. Uncovered foods may be browned on top.
