Cooking functions

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

 OVEN LAMP

Only the oven light comes on. It remains on in all the cooking functions.

 BAKE

The upper and lower heating elements come on. BAKE is the traditional method of cooking. It is best to cook on only one shelf at a time in this function. Ideal for large cakes and dishes that bake for several hours.

 TURBO GRILL

Both the grill and the upper heating element come on, for intense grilling over the whole width of the oven. Use with the oven door closed and the temperature set to a maximum of 225°C. For best results, use the topmost shelf position when you want quick browning (eg toast).

 DEFROST

Only the oven fan comes on. Use with the temperature set to off (0). The fan circulates air around the oven, speeding up the defrosting process by approximately 30%. Note: this function is not for cooking food.

 FAN FORCED

The circular heating element and the fan come on. The oven set on FAN FORCED can cook several different foods together. Use FAN FORCED for multi-shelf cooking.

 FAN GRILL

Both the grill and the fan come on. Use with the oven door closed and the temperature set to a maximum of 225°C. Ideal for roasting tender cuts of meat and poultry. Use lower shelf positions for larger items eg a whole chicken.

  FAN FORCED WITH LOWER HEAT

The lower heating element, the circular heating element, and the fan come on.

 FAN BAKE

The upper and lower heating elements and the fan come on. 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.

Notes on baking:

  • Preheat the oven before baking.
  • Do not place anything, including water, ice or aluminium foil on the oven floor.
  • Remove the fat filter before baking (some models only).

Notes on using the fat filter

  • Use the fat filter when roasting meat and poultry on  Fan Bake,  Fan Grill  or  Fan Forced. It helps to keep your oven clean and reduces splatter and smoking.
  • Always clean the fat filter after every use. See ‘Care and cleaning’.
  • Remove the fat filter before baking
