  • The cooking temperature can be adjusted in increments of 10°C, from 50°C to 250°C.
  • The cooking time ranges from 0 to 599 minutes (9 h 59 min) . It is preferable to enter a minimum time and then to add time if necessary; keep an eye on the color of the food.
  • Always insert the accessories (rack or glass tray) at level 1 or 2. This will ensure better heat distribution and optimum cooking results.
  • Use cookware designed to withstand high temperatures.
  • Protect your hands when you remove the dish because it may be very hot.
  • If you want to defrost food after using the heat circulation function, we recommend that you let your oven cool down for 10 minutes first; this will give you better results.

Cooking on two levels

  • To cook two apples tarts at the same time, 1 hour at 200°C. We recommend preparing the first tart in the glass drip tray inserted at level 1 and the second in a tart dish on the shelf inserted at level 3. Change the position of the two dishes half-way through cooking.
