IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

WARNING

When properly cared for, your new Bosch range has been designed to be a safe, reliable appliance. Read all instructions carefully before using this range. These precautions will reduce the risk of burns, electric shock, fire, and injury to persons. Do not operate the oven or cooktop controls if the glass is broken. Food splatter or cleaning solution may penetrate a broken control panel and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately should your glass control panel become broken. When using kitchen appliances, basic safety precautions must be followed, including those in the following pages.

The California Safe Drinking and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.

The elimination of soil during self-cleaning generates some by-products which are on the list.

The fiberglass insulation in self-clean ovens gives off very small amounts of formaldehyde during the first several cleaning cycles.

Exposure to these substances can be minimized by:

1.Providing good ventilation when cooking with gas

2.Providing good ventilation during and immediately after self cleaning the oven.

3.Operating the unit according to the instructions in this manual.

The Bosch range referred to thoughout this manual is manufactured by BSH Home Appliance Corp.

Important Safety Instructions

Please read all instructions before using this appliance.

COOKTOP SAFETY (cont’d)

Never leave the cooktop unattended. Boilovers can cause smoke and possibly damage the cooktop.

Hold the handle of the pan to prevent movement of the utensil when stirring or turning food.

Other than the use of metal pans, only certain types of glass, heatproof glass ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop use. Other types of utensils may break with sudden temperature changes. Use only on low or medium heat settings according to the utensil manufacturer’s directions.

OVEN SAFETY

To reduce the risk of fire:

Do not store flammable materials in or near the oven.

Do not use water on a grease fire. Smother fire or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

Have an appropriate fire extinguisher available and highly visible near any cooking appliance.

Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils or food in the cavity when not being used.

If materials inside the oven should ignite, keep oven door closed.Turn off oven and disconnect the circuit at the circuit breaker box.

Do not block any vent openings.

Never use the oven to warm or heat a room. This can damage the oven parts.

Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while using the appliance. Be careful when reaching for items stored over the range. Flammable material could be ignited if brought in contact with hot surface units or heating elements and may cause severe burns.

Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the oven door, warming drawer door, storage drawer or cooktop. This can damage the range and even tip it over, causing severe personal injury.

Have the installer show the location of the circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy reference.

WARMING DRAWER SAFETY

To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons:

Do not store flammable materials in the warming drawer.

Use care when opening the warming drawer. Open door slightly and let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food.

Do not place food in unopened containers in the warming drawer. Pressure could build up and cause container to burst.

SELF-CLEANING SAFETY

Confirm that the door locks and will not open once the door lock indicator icon appears. If the door does not lock, touch OFF and do not run Self-Clean. Phone 800/944-2904 for service.

Note: During a normal Self-Clean cycle, the door will not lock until the oven reaches 450º F. In a Delayed Self-Clean cycle, the door locks immediately.

Do not clean the oven gasket. It is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, move or remove the oven gasket.

Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven liner protective coatings of any kind in or around any part of the oven.

Clean only oven parts listed in this manual.

Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan, oven racks, oven probe, other utensils and wipe out excess soft spillage.

REGARDING PET BIRDS:

Birds have very sensitive respiratory systems. Keep pet birds out of the kitchen or other rooms where kitchen fumes could reach them. During self clean, fumes are released that may be harmful to birds. Other kitchen fumes such as overheating margarines and cooking oils may also be harmful.

CAUTION

Items of interest to children should not be stored in cabinets above a range or on the backsplash of a range. Children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

Cooktop Features

Before Using the Cooktop

Remove all packing materials and labels from the cooktop surface.

While cool, wipe with a clean, damp sponge and dry.

Apply the Cooktop Cleaning Creme packaged with the range. Buff with a clean cloth. See Care and Cleaning Section.

There may be a slight odor during the first several uses; this is normal and will disappear.

Optimum cooking results depend on the proper cookware being selected and used.

The cooking surface will hold the heat and remain hot up to 30 minutes after the elements have been turned off.

Read and understand all safety precautions and Use and Care Manual information prior to operating.

Precautions for Long Life and Good Appearance of the Surface

Regular, daily care using the Cooktop Cleaning Creme will protect the surface and make it easier to remove food soil and water spots.

The ceramic glass cooking surface is a durable material resistant to impact but not unbreakable if a pan or other object is dropped on it.

Never cook food directly on the glass.

Avoid placing a wok support ring, trivet or other metal stand on the glass surface.

Do not use the glass surface as a cutting board.

Do not slide cookware across the cooking surface; it may scratch the glass.

Do not place wet pans on the glass surface.

Retained Heat

The glass cooking surface retains heat and stays hot after the element(s) have been turned off. The retained heat may be used to hold foods at serving temperatures for a short time. If a hot surface light is on, use caution when working or cleaning around the cooktop as the cooktop is still hot.

Temperature Limiters

Each radiant heating element has its own sensor to protect the glass cooking surface from extreme high temperatures. The limiters will operate automatically by cycling the element off regardless of the cook setting.

Although cycling is normal, any one of the following conditions can activate the limiter and cause it to cycle on and off more than usual:

The base of the pan is not making full contact with the heating surface (due to a warped or uneven base).

The pan is too small for the size of the element.

The pan has boiled dry.

The material or shape of the pan is slow to transfer the heat.

Radiant Elements

Bosch UltraSpeedTM radiant elements use a wire ribbon located under the ceramic glass surface to provide the heat for cooking. These radiant elements will cycle on and off by design (see Temperature Limiters at left.) There are 9 heat setting positions from 9 (high) to 1 (low) and a special setting for keep warm.

Dual Element

The dual element consists of two radiant ribbon elements within the same heating area. Either the small inner element or both the inner and outer elements may be selected for use,

depending on the size of cookware.

Triple Element (Some Models)

The Triple Element, located in the left front position, consists of three radiant ribbon elements within the same heating area, one, two or three elements can be selected.

Defaults to largest element.

Touch POT SIZING once for medium size.

Touch POT SIZING twice for small size.

A range of heat settings are listed because the actual setting depends on:

2)type, quantity and temperature of the food

3)element used

4)the cook’s preference.

208/240VoltConnection: The Heat Settings recommended on this page are based on a 240 volt power source. If your cooktop is connected to 208 volts, the same heat settings apply but foods may take a little longer to finish cooking.

Page 9

Dial
The cooktop uses an mTwisT magnetic dial to select the desired heat setting. The mTwisT dial is held onto the cooktop by a strong magnet and automatically positions itself in the center of the dial location when placed on the cooktop.
Note: If the dial is removed from the cooktop when in use, all elements will be turned off after 10 seconds. The cooktop is locked and the Panel Lock light comes on. (See Setting Panel Lock on Page 11.)

Cooktop Features

If you have the Bosch HES24 Range, the mTwisT Cooktop has two (2) single elements (small and medium) and two (2) double elements. The Bosch HES25 Range has two (2) single elements, one (1) double element and one (1) triple element. The mTwisT dial is a magnetic removable dial, which allows for easy cleaning of the smooth Ceran cooktop.

Hot Surface Indicator Light

Each element features a hot indicator light to show when the cooking surface is too hot to touch. A letter H will appear above the element touch pad.

The light remains on until the cooking area has cooled to a safe-to-touch temperature.

If a hot surface light is on, use caution when working or cleaning around the cooktop as the cooktop is still hot.

Keep Warm

Each element has a keep warm setting to keep hot, cooked foods at serving temperatures.

To set Keep Warm feature:

1.Touch element pad for desired element.

2.Touch KEEP WARM pad. L is displayed above selected element and element comes on.

Keep Warm Guidelines

Use pans/utensils with flat bases. Plates and casseroles with shallow ridges around the base can be used provided they are made of heat-safe materials.

Keep dish covered to keep foods hot. Avoid paper or plastic.

Choose pans and cookware that may be safely used on a hot surface. Example: Use CorningWare® "Safe for Rangetop" rather than Pyrex® which is not recommended for cooktop use.

Use a trivet or steamer inside a pan when necessary to raise food off bottom of pan.

Oven Modes - Bake and Convection Bake

BAKE, PROOF (some models) and WARM

Baking is cooking with dry, heated air. Both the upper and lower element cycle to maintain the oven temperature:

The Bake mode can be used to prepare a variety of food items, from pastries to casseroles. It can also be used to roast meats.

In the Warming mode, the oven uses the upper and lower element to maintain a low temperature to keep food at serving temperature.

Use the Warming setting on the oven to keep foods hot until ready to serve.

The Warming mode temperatures are 140° - 220° F. The default temperature is 170°.

Foods that need to be kept moist should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil.

In the Proofing mode, the oven will use the upper and lower element to maintain a low temperature to proof bread. Proofing is the rising of a yeast dough.

The Proofing mode temeratures are 85° to 105° F. The default temperature is 100°.

Loosely cover the bowl or pan and use any rack that accomodates the size of the container.

Keep the door closed and use the oven light to check the rising of the dough.

*The convection bake temperature is 25°F less than recommended on packages or recipes. The temperture in this chart has been reduced 25°F.

**This chart is a guide. Actual times depend on the mixes or recipes baked. Follow recipe or package directions and reduce temperature appropriately.

CONVECTION BAKE

Convection Baking is similar to Baking. In this case, heat comes from the lower heating element and a third element behind the backwall. The main difference in convection baking is that the heat is circulated throughout the oven by the convection fan:

The Convection Bake mode is well-suited for baking large quantities of food on multiple racks. It can be used to prepare cookies, pies, cupcakes, pastries, breads, snack foods and appetizers among other items.

The benefits of Convection Baking include:

Slight decrease in cooking time

Three rack cooking (more even browning)

Higher Volume (yeast items rise higher)

Cook more items at once

For Best Results:

Reduce recipe temperature by 25° F. Refer to the Convection Baking chart for examples.

Place food in low-sided, uncovered pans such as cookie sheets without sides.

Center baking pans side to side on the oven rack.

Oven Modes -Convection Roast

CONVECTION ROAST

Convection Roast uses heat from the top and bottom elements as well as heat circulated by the convection fan:

The Convection Roast mode is well suited to preparing tender cuts of meat and poultry.

The benefits of Convection Roasting, include:

As much as 25% faster cooking than standard Roasting/ Baking

Rich, golden browning

For Best Results:

Use the same temperature as indicated in the recipe.

Check doneness early as roasting time may decrease by as much as 25%. Refer to Convection Roast Chart for examples.

Do not cover meat or use cooking bags.

Use the broil pan and grid provided with the range for roasting. A low-sided, uncovered pan can also be used.

Use the probe (some models) or a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of the meat.

If the meat is browned to your liking, but is not yet done, a small strip of foil can be placed over the breast to prevent overbrowning.

Let meat stand covered with foil 10-15 minutes after removing from the oven.

Oven Modes - Dehydrate

DEHYDRATE

Dehydrate dries with heat from a third element behind the back wall of the oven. The heat is circulated throughout the oven by the convection fan.

Dehydrating is used to dry and/or preserve foods such as fruits, vegetables and herbs. This mode holds an optimum low temperature (100° F - 160° F) while circulating the heated air to slowly remove moisture.

For Best Results:

Dry most fruits and vegetables at 140° F. Dry herbs at 100° F. (Refer to the Dehydrate Chart for examples).

Drying times vary depending on the moisture and sugar content of the food, the size of the pieces, the amount being dried and the humidity in the air. Check food at the minimum drying time.

Multiple racks can be used simultaneously. Contact your Bosch dealer for drying racks.

Treat fruits with antioxidants to avoid discoloration.

Consult a food preservation book, county Cooperative Extension Office or library for additional information.

The door must be open during the Dehydrate mode.

Prop the door open at least 1" by placing an object (i.e.; wooden spoon) in the upper corner between the door and the side panel. Becareful that the object does not touch the oven gasket.

Using the Probe (some models)

The probe can be used to determine the internal doneness or the “END” temperature of many foods, especially meats and poultry.

The temperature range for the probe is 135°F to 200°F (57°C to 93°C).

Preheating the oven is not recommended when using the probe. A hot oven will impair your ability to easily connect the probe to the receptacle and into the meat.

Oven temperature can be set for 100°F up to 450°F (38°C up to 232°C).

INSERTING THE PROBE

Insert the probe tip into the food item.

For meats, insert the probe tip into the thickest part and not touch bone, fat, or gristle.

For large poultry products and turkeys, insert the probe in the thickest part of the inner thigh.

For other foods, such as a meatloaf, the probe tip should be located in the center of the thickest part of the food.

USING THE PROBE

1.Prepare meat and place in roasting pan (or on rack in roasting pan as recipe specifies). Insert the probe into the meat (See “Inserting the Probe”, above).

2.Make sure the probe is not touching gristle, fat, bone, the roast rack or the pan.

3.Place roasting pan with meat in cold oven on recommended oven rack. Plug probe into the probe receptacle. The probe symbol will appear in display.

Note: The probe temperature can only be set when the probe is installed in the oven.

4.Touch COOKING MODE and select BAKE, CONVECTION BAKE or CONVECTION ROAST. The default oven temperature will appear.

5.Turn knob to change temperature if necessary.

6.Touch START.

7.Turn knob to set the probe temperature (desired end temperature of the food.

8.Touch START.

The chosen oven temperature is displayed in the upper right hand corner of the display.

The probe temperature is displayed in the center to the left of the cooking mode. It increases in 5°F

increments until the chosen temperature is reached.

The oven is preheated when the beep signals once.

When the set probe temperature is reached, END appears in display and oven turns off.

To change only the oven temperature, touch TEMPERATURE. OVEN TEMP will flash in the display. Turn the knob to desired temperature and press START twice.

To change the probe temperature, touch

TEMPERATURE. The oven temperature will flash. Press STARTand the PROBE TEMP will flash. Turn the knob to desired temperature and press START again.

PROBE USE TIPS

The oven is well insulated and the retained heat will continue to cook the meat after the oven has shut off. For this reason, remove the meat from the oven as soon as the control beeps.

Since meat continues to cook after being removed from the oven, set the internal (probe) temperature 5 - 10 degrees below the desired final internal temperature. Allow “standing time” (10 - 20 minutes) before carving the meat.

Always use the handle of the probe for inserting and removing. Use a potholder to remove since the probe becomes hot.

Remove the probe from the oven when it is not being used.

The probe cannot be used with frozen meats. For best results, completely thaw meats before using the probe.

Note: Always remove probe from oven when cooking is complete. The probe symbol will remain in the display until the probe is removed. Do not leave probe attachment in oven during self-clean. Oven will not self-clean with the probe installed in the oven.

Care and Cleaning - Glass Cooktop

Before Use Care

Care is easy when preventative steps are taken. For example, apply a small amount of Cooktop Cleaning Creme (packaged with range) on a daily basis.

This provides a protective film that makes it easy to remove water spots or food spatters. The temperature of the cooking surface reduces the protective qualities of this cleaner. It must be reapplied before each use.

Use a clean cloth and apply Cooktop Cleaning Creme before each use to remove dust or metal marks that can occur on the counter level surface between uses.

Daily Cleaning Techniques

1.Clean the surface when it is completely cool with the

Cooktop Cleaning Crème.

Exception: Remove Dry Sugar, Sugar Syrup, Tomato Products and Milk immediately with the razor blade scraper (See Care and Cleaning Chart, next page).

2.Wipe off spatters with a clean, damp sponge or paper towel. Rinse and dry. Use white vinegar if smudge remains; rinse.

3.Apply a small amount of the Cooktop Cleaning Cream. When dry, buff surface with a clean paper towel or cloth.

Do Not Use the Following Cleaners

Glass cleaners which contain ammonia or chlorine bleach. These ingredients may permanently etch or stain the cooktop.

Caustic Cleaners

Oven cleaners such as Easy Off® may etch the cooktop surface.

Abrasive Cleaners

Metal scouring pads and scrub sponges such as Scotch Brite® can scratch and / or leave metal marks.

Soap-filled scouring pads such as SOS® can scratch the surface.

Powdery cleaners containing chlorine bleach can permanently stain the cooktop.

Flammable cleaners such as lighter fluid or WD-40.

CAUTION

Do not use any kind of cleaner on the glass while the surface is hot; use only the razor blade scraper. The resulting fumes can be hazardous to your health. Heating the cleaner can chemically attack and damage the surface.

Cleaning the Dial

Remove from cooktop. Wipe with hot, soapy cloth, rinse and dry. The dial can also be washed in the dishwasher. Do not soak or wash in dishwasher.

Using the Razor Blade Scraper

Use the scraper to remove dried or baked on foods. Hold the scraper at a 45° angle. Move it over the soil to lift it off of the cooktop. Finish with a clean, damp sponge or paper towel. Apply vinegar if smudge remains and rinse.

Cookware Selection Guide

Cookware Characteristics

The choice of pans directly affects the cooking speed and uniformity. For best results select pans with the following features:

Flat Bases - When a pan is hot, the base (pan bottom) should rest evenly on the surface without wobbling (rocking). Flat, medium-to-heavy-weight pans are best.

Cookware Tips

Use of pots and pans with rounded (either concave or convex) warped or dented bottoms should be avoided. See drawings below.

Make sure the bottom of the pot or pan being used is clean and dry.

Use pots and pans with thick, smooth metal bottoms.

Do not slide metal pots across the cooktop. Pans may leave marks which need to be removed immediately. See Care and Cleaning Section.

Do not use glass pans as they may scratch the surface.

To Test the Flatness of Your Pans

Turn the pan upside down on the countertop and place a ruler flat against the bottom of the pan. The bottom of the pan and the straight edge of the ruler should be flush against each other.

Another simple test to determine even heat distribution across the cookware bottom is to place 1” of water in the pan. Bring the water to a boil and observe the location of the bubbles as the water starts to boil. Good, flat cookware will have an even distribution of bubbles over the bottom surface area.

Matching Diameters – The base of the pan should cover or match the diameter of the element being used. Pans may overhang the element area by 1" all around.

Tight Fitting Lids – A lid shortens cooking time and water boils faster by holding the heat inside the pan.

Specialty pans, such as griddles, roasters, pressure cookers, woks, water bath canners and pressure canners must have the same features as described above. (Use only a flatbottom wok.) Never place a support ring, such as a wok ring or trivet, on the cooking surface.

Specialty Pans

Specialty pans such as griddles, roasters, pressure cookers, woks, water bath canners and pressure canners must have the same features as described above. Use only a flatbottomed wok. Never place a support ring, such as a wok ring or trivet, on the cooking surface.
