Cooking charts

  • Shelf positions are counted from the base up
    (1 is the lowest, 6 (full size ovens) or 4 (compact ovens) is the highest). Position shelves before you turn the oven on.
  • For best results preheat the oven to the required temperature.
  • The grill element may come on while the oven is heating up.
  • The halo on the temperature dial will change from red to white when the oven has reached the selected temperature. The display will only show the set temperature once the oven has finished preheating. The halo may change between white and red as the oven maintains its set temperature.
