Cooking guide

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.
  • Remove the fat filter before baking.
  • Clean the fat filter after every use. See ‘Care and cleaning’.

Cooking Guide

  • The settings in the following chart are guidelines only. Follow the instructions in your recipe or on packaging and be prepared to adjust the oven settings and baking times to achieve the best possible results for you.
  • Shelf positions are counted from the oven floor up (1 is the lowest, 5 is the highest).
  • Arrange oven shelves before you turn the oven on, then preheat the oven to the desired temperature.
  • Single shelf positions below use the flat oven shelf; where a multi-shelf arrangement is recommended, the lower position uses the step-down shelf.
  • Due to the width of the oven, a single shelf can usually accommodate double the standard recipe.
  • Always preheat the oven before baking.
  • For models with a fat filter:
    Always use the fat filter when roasting meat or poultry.
    Always remove the fat filter before baking.
  • Do not place anything, including water or ice, on the oven floor
  • Keep the door completely shut when grilling foods.
  • Do not open the door during the first 3/4 of baking time.
