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 any packaging and any 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. Select the Bake 2017-07-02_2212.png function.
  • The halo will glow white.
  • Each function has a preset temperature and so the oven will start heating at the Bake preset temperature of 180°C.


  1. Set the temperature to 200°C for 30 minutes.
  • While the oven is heating up, the temperature halo will glow red and the temperature indicator will alternately show the actual and set temperatures.
  • When the oven has reached set temperature, a tone will sound and the halo will turn white.



  1. After 30 minutes is up, select the Fan Grill 2017-07-02_2216.png function.



  1. Leave the temperature at 200°C for 5 minutes.
  • The halo will remain white.



  1. When you have finished, turn the function dial to Off 2017-07-02_2215.png . The halos will go out.
  • There will be a distinctive smell and a small amount of smoke during the conditioning of the oven.
  • This is normal, but make sure the kitchen is well ventilated during the conditioning. Once cooled, wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly.
