Oven functions

Depending on your model, you may only have some of these functions.



Selecting this will turn the oven off.


This is the traditional method of baking. It is best to bake on only one shelf at a time in this function. Ideal for large cakes and dishes that bake for several hours.

Fan Bake

Ideal for dishes like lasagne that need to brown on top and also single trays of small cakes or biscuits that bake in less than an hour.


Grill is the most suitable function for ‘finishing off’ many meals, for example browning the top of potato gratin and frittata. Use Grill to toast bread or to grill your favourite chicken, fish and steak.

Heat levels are from LO (50% power) to HI (100% power), with settings from 1 to 9 in between. Grill provides instant radiant heat, so the temperature dial halo will stay red.

Fan Grill

Ideal for roasting tender cuts of meat and poultry. Use the lower shelf positions for larger items eg a whole chicken.

Fan Forced

Great for multi-shelf cooking. The consistent temperature ensures baking is well risen. Cookies baked on Fan Forced are crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle.

Pastry Bake

Excellent for sweet and savoury pastry foods, for moist breads and brownies and cookies that you want extra chewy.



Use this function to roasting meat, chicken or vegetables. An initial searing stage crisps and browns the roast then the temperature drops to the level you have preset for the remainder of the cooking period.


Rotisserie is a delicious way to cook meat and poultry. The slowly rotating food is basted continuously in its own juices, making it tender on the inside and well browned and full of flavour on the outside. See ‘Using the rotisserie’.

Self Clean

The Self Clean cycle takes care of the mess and grime that is traditionally associated with oven cleaning. See ‘Using the Self Clean function’ for details.


This is NOT a cooking function.
