Cooking functions

Leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible before and after cooking or defrosting. This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause food poisoning. Take particular care during warmer weather.

 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.

 ROTISSERIE

A delicious way to cook meat and poultry. The slowly rotating meat 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’.

 GRILL

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. 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

this is not a cooking function
Only the oven fan comes on. 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.

 WARM

this is not a cooking function
Always reheat food until piping hot and then select the warm function to keep food hot.

 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.

Safe food handling: leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible before and after cooking or defrosting.This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause food poisoning. Take particular care during warmer weather.
