Oven Timer Operation

Automatic Cooking

Hints on

Automatic

Cooking

NOTE: The Timer must be set to ‘Time of Day’ and ‘Manual’ before the ovens can be used.

The Main Oven can be controlled by the automatic timer.

NEVER operate the grill or top oven when the main oven is set to cook automatically, because the oven cavity can become warm and this may cause bacterial growth in food.

1.Select foods which require the same cooking time and temperature.

2.To ensure food does not cool down and does not require reheating set the end time so that the food is ready when you require it.

3.Always ensure that meat and poultry is defrosted before placing in the oven.

4.Whenever possible, take food out of the refrigerator and keep is as cool as possible.

5.If cooking food that requires frying before placing in the oven for auto cooking, keep the delay start time to a minimum,.

6.Never place hot or warm food in the oven for delay start cooking as it could cause the oven to be warm and produce harmful bacteria in food.

7.We advise that dishes containing left-over,cooked poultry or meat eg. Shepherd’s Pie, should not be cooked automatically if there is to be a time delay period.

8.Ensure that delay start times are kept to a minimum to prevent bacterial growth in food.

9.Wine or beer may ferment and cream may curdle during the delay period so it is best to add these ingredients just before serving.

10.Foods which discolour should be protected by coating in fat or tossing in water to which lemon juice has been added, prior to placing food in the oven.

11.Dishes containing liquid should not be filled too full to prevent boiling over.

12.Food should be well sealed (but not airtight) in a container to prevent the loss of liquid during cooking. Aluminium foil gives a good seal.

13.Always ensure that food is piping hot and cooked thoroughly before serving.

14.Only reheat food once.

Using the Top Oven for Solarplus Grilling

Your cooker is not fitted with a conventional grill. Creda have developed a Solarplus high speed grill which is designed to reduce your grilling times. It is quicker because it takes less time to warm up from cold. Conventional grills require 5 minutespre-heatbefore food is placed beneath them, but for normal grilling the Solarplus grill can be used directly from cold without anypre-heat.

However, when toasting, optimum performance is achieved by pre-heatingthe grill for about 1 minute.

Note: You will notice that the grill elements are protected by a wire mesh. This stops you from touching live parts.

DO NOT under any circumstances insert objects into the grill mesh as this could damage the element wire, break the glass tubes or if the grill is on, cause electric shock.

During use the mesh may become soiled. Care must be taken to ensure the grill mesh is not distorted – do not store the grill pan handle on the food grid when the shelf is in the highest position.

Grilling Procedure

Fig 1

Fig 2

1.Open the grill/top oven door fully.

2.Ensure that the Easy Glide™ Shelf is located in the correct position.

3.Preheat the grill, if necessary, with the Easy Glide™ Shelf pulled out (Fig 1).

4.Locate the grill pan in the Easy Glide™ Shelf (see Fig 2)and push back under the element.

5.The grill pan should be withdrawn, always using the grill pan handle, to the stop position to turn or remove cooked food. (There is no need to remove the grill pan from the Easy Glide™ Shelf).

6.NEVER line the grill pan with aluminium foil as this may cause overheating of fat in the grill pan.

NOTE: To stop fat splashing onto the grill element mesh, it is important to use the anti-splashtray. Always clean the grill pananti-splashtray and food grid after each use.

NOTE: Preheat the grill if, necessary, with the Easy Glide™ Shelf pulled out (Fig.1) Ensure that the Easy Glide™ Shelf is in the correct position.

Leave the control at 6 for toast, and for fast cooking of foods.

For thicker foods requiring longer cooking, turn the switch to a lower setting after the initial sealing on both sides at 6. The thicker the food, the lower the control should be set. DO NOT line the grill pan with aluminium foil, as this increases the amount of fat spitting which can cause a fire.

After use always return both controls to their OFF (0) position.

Using the Top Oven as a Convection Oven

The top oven should be used to cook small quantities of food. The oven is designed so that the grill element operates at a reduced heat output, this is combined with a heating element situated underneath the floor of the oven. To ensure even cooking of the food it is important that cooking utensils are positioned correctly on the oven shelf so that the element is directly above. As a guide, the front of the utensil should be approx. 100mm (4”) from the front of the shelf.

Easy Glide™ Shelf The Easy Glide™ Shelf, in conjunction with the grill pan supplied can be used for cooking in the oven(s), ie. meat, poultry etc. also for roasting vegetables. Place the Easy Glide™ Shelf in the oven on the same runner position as stated in the meat cooking charts.

Important: Always remove the grill pan handle from the grill pan when the pan is being used for oven cooking.

Always use oven gloves when basting, turning or removing food from the oven, as the Easy Glide™ Shelf and the grill pan will behot.

Never remove the Easy Glide™ Shelf from the oven with the grill pan and food still in position.

Note: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10oC. It may also be necessary to increase or decrease cooking times.

Step 1 Ensure that the Timer is set to Manual.

Step 2 Place the shelf in the correct position (see Oven Temperature Charts).

Step 3 Select the required cooking temperature(100–220oC)using control (B) (see Top Oven Temperature Charts).

The pilot light will immediately come on, and remain on until the oven reaches the required temperature. The light will then automatically go off and on during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.

Step 4 Place the food on the shelf directly below the element ensuring the oven door is closed.

NOTE: At the end of your cooking, always return control (B) to the OFF () position.

Plate Warming

Place the plates/dishes on shelf position 1 from the base of the top oven, and turn top oven temperature and grill selection control (B) to 100oC for10-15minutes.

Never use the grill setting control (A) when warming plates.

Top Oven Utensils

Do Not use: Meat Pans and Baking Trays larger than – 225mm x 300mm (9”x12”)

DO NOT use the main oven meat pan as a meat pan in the top oven, as the air circulation will be seriously restricted.

20

Main Oven (Pre-Heat)

Fan Oven Mode

Fan Ovens provide even distribution of heat, allowing food to be cooked anywhere in the oven at the same temperature, ideal for batch baking.

Pre-heatingis not necessary in the fan oven mode for most foods because the oven element is situated around the fan blade which in turn circulates the hot air evenly around the oven quickly.

Side Heat Mode

This is an oven mode long favoured for traditional British cooking.

The heating elements at the side create different temperature zones with the hottest at the top and the coolest at the bottom. This allows you to cook at different temperatures on different shelves.

The unique design of the Creda Smartcook™ oven permits an initial boost that reduces the usual pre-heattime of approximately15-20minutes in anon-fanoven to approximately8-9minutes (based on 180˚C). During the initial boost both the side and the rear elements are on as well as the fan. When the oven reaches temperature in this mode, the fan will remain on for a further 4 minutes after opening the door and will then switch off automatically.

21

Using the Main Oven for Fan Cooking

Since a circulaire fan oven heats up more quickly and generally cooks food at a lower temperature than a conventional oven, pre-heatingis often unnecessary. For guides on“pre-heating”,“cooking temperatures” and “cooking times” see “Oven Temperature Charts” later in book.

Note: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10oC. It may also be necessary to increase or decrease cooking times.

Main oven shelf positioning for Fan Oven

Most foods will cook satisfactorily on any shelf position, due to even distribution of heat in the main oven, but the shelves must be evenly spaced.

The top oven rod shelf can be used in the main oven when cooking large quantities of food. (N.B. Maximum 3 shelves in the main oven).

Food or utensils should never be placed directly on the floor of the oven for cooking.

DO NOT allow young children near to the appliance when the main oven is in use as the surfaces get extremely hot.

Easy Glide™ Shelf

The Easy Glide™ Shelf, in conjunction with the grill pan supplied can be used for cooking in the oven(s), ie. meat, poultry etc. also for roasting vegetables. Place the Easy Glide™ Shelf in the oven on the same runner position as stated in the meat cooking chart.

Important:

Always remove the grill pan handle from the grill pan, when the pan is being used for oven cooking.

Always use oven gloves when basting, turning or removing food from the oven, as the Easy Glide™ Shelf and the pan will be hot.

Never remove the Easy Glide™ Shelf from the oven with the pan and food still in position.

Main Oven Utensils

Do Not Use:

Meat Pans larger than

375mm x 300mm (15”x12”)

 

Baking Trays larger than

325mm x 250mm (13”x10”)

Temperature and Time

When all three shelves are in use to cook large quantities of food, it may be necessary to increase the cooking times given in the temperature charts by a few minutes,to allow for the loss of heat due to extra time taken to load the oven, and the larger mass of food. Baking trays should have an even gap around the oven.

TIMER

 

 

 

Step 1 Check that the timer is in manual.

Step 2 Place the shelf/shelves in the correct position, See Oven Temperature Charts (Main Fan Oven).

Step 3 Place the food centrally on the shelf ensuring the oven door is fully closed. Step 4 Select Fan Oven cooking, by turning control (D) clockwise to ‘FAN OVEN’. Step 5 Select the required cooking temperature (80 to 230oC) by turning control (C)

clockwise. The pilot light will immediately come on, and remain on until the oven reaches the required temperature. The light will then automatically go off and on during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.

Note: When you have finished using your cooker, always return the controls to their OFF () position. At the end of the cooking period there may be a momentary puff of steam when the door is opened. This will disperse in a few seconds and is a perfectly normal characteristic of an oven with a good door seal.

22

Using the Main Oven for Convection Cooking (Side Heat)

With convection cooking the oven needs to be pre-heatedbefore use. For guides on“pre-heating”,“cooking temperatures”, “cooking times” and shelf positions, see “Oven Temperature Charts” (convection cooking) later in book.

Note: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10oC. It may also be necessary to increase or decrease cooking times.

Main oven shelf positioning for Convection Cooking

Shelves must be positioned as recommended in the cooking charts (convection oven)

(N.B. A maximum of 2 shelves to be used in the main oven).

Food or utensils should never be placed directly on the floor of the oven for cooking.

DO NOT allow young children near to the appliance when the main oven is in use as the surfaces get extremely hot.

Easy Glide™ Shelf

The Easy Glide™ Shelf, in conjunction with the grill pan supplied can be used for cooking in the oven(s), ie. meat, poultry etc. also for roasting vegetables. Place the Easy Glide™ Shelf in the oven on the same runner position as stated in the meat cooking chart.

Important:

Always remove the grill pan handle from the grill pan, when the pan is being used for oven cooking.

Always use oven gloves when basting, turning or removing food from the oven, as the Easy Glide™ Shelf and the pan will be hot.

Never remove the Easy Glide™ Shelf from the oven with the pan and food still in position.

The light will then automatically go off and on during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.

Important:

When Side Heat cooking has been started and the controls are then switched OFF and ON again for any reason the boost sequence will then re-start.

Note: When you have finished using your cooker, always return the controls to their OFF () position. At the end of the cooking period there may be a momentary puff of steam when the door is opened. This will disperse in a few seconds and is a perfectly normal characteristic of an oven with a good door seal.

23

Using the Main Oven for Other Functions

90

“SLOW” Setting (FAN OVEN only)

 

 

This is used for slow cooking, keeping food warm and warming plates for short

 

 

periods. Extra care should be taken when warming bone china, as it may be damaged

 

in a hot oven.

DO NOT place food or plates directly on the oven floor as this could damage both the oven lining and the plates which are being warmed.

Advantages of “SLOW” cooking are:

The oven stays cleaner because there is less splashing.

Timing of food is not as critical, so there is less fear of overcooking. Inexpensive joints of meat are tenderised.

Fully loading the oven can be economical.

Cooking times can be extended in some cases by up to 2 hours. The kitchen stays cooler.

Operation:

1.Place the prepared food in the main oven and ensure the door is fully closed.

2.Turn the Main Oven selector (D) clockwise to the FAN OVEN position.

3.Select 90 (Slow Cooking Temperature) by turning Main Oven Temperature

Control (C) clockwise ensuring the oven door is fully closed.

Storage and re-heatingof food:

1.If food is to be frozen or not used immediately, place it in a clean container and cool as soon as possible.

2.Always thaw frozen food completely in the refrigerator before re-heating.

3.Always reheat food thoroughly and ensure it is piping hot before serving.

4.Only re-heatfoodonce.

Points to consider when preparing food for “SLOW” cooking:

1.Make sure that the dishes to be used will fit into the oven ensuring enough room for air to circulate.

2.All dishes cooked on the slow setting will require a minimum of 6 hours, however, if they are cooked for 1-2hours longer then deterioration in their appearance may be noticed.

3.Never cook joints of meat over 2.7kg (6 lb) or poultry over 2.0kg (4lb 8oz).

We do not recommend that joints of meat or poultry are stuffed before cooking on the slow setting.

4.To seal in the meat juices, always cook meat or poultry at 170oC for 30 minutes before wrapping in foil and placing on a rack over a tin (to allow good air

circulation) before turning the control to the slow setting and cooking immediately.

5.Always ensure that joints of pork and poultry are thoroughly cooked by checking with a meat thermometer before serving.

6.Always thaw frozen foods completely before cooking. We do not recommend placing frozen food in the oven to cook.

7.Always bring soups, liquids and casseroles to the boil before placing in the oven.

8.Ensure that casserole dishes have a good seal (not airtight) and cover to the top with foil to prevent loss of moisture.

9.Ensure that fruit and vegetables are cut into even sized small pieces to cook properly.

10.Always adjust seasoning before serving.

11.If using dried red kidney beans it is important that the beans are soaked and then boiled for a minimum of 10 minutes before using in any dish to destroy any toxins.

12.When cooking fish or egg dishes it may be necessary to check during cooking to avoid overcooking.

Cooking Results Not Satisfactory

GRILL

Uneven cooking front to back

Ensure that the grill pan is positioned centrally below the grill

 

element.

Fat splattering

Ensure that the grill pan is not lined with foil.

 

Ensure that the grill setting control (A) is not set too high.

 

If Solarplus grill – use anti-splashtray supplied under the

 

food support.

BAKING GENERAL

 

Uneven rising of cakes

Ensure that the oven shelves are level.

Sinking of cakes

The following may cause cakes to sink:

 

1. Pre-heatingof fan ovens – not always necessary.

 

2. Cooking at too high a temperature – reduce standard

 

temperatures by 25oC for fan ovens.

 

3. Using normal creaming method with a soft margarine.

 

If using soft margarine, use an all in one method instead of

 

the traditional creaming of the margarine and sugar.

Care and Cleaning

Warning: Before cleaning, please ensure that the electricity supply to the appliance is switched off and the appliance is fully cold.

1. “CREDACLEAN” OVEN LINERS (TOP OVEN) (E530E)

TOP OVEN SIDE LINERS

MAIN OVEN SIDE LINERS

AND REAR PANEL

(a) How "Credaclean" works.

The surfaces of the "Credaclean" oven liners are treated with a special vitreous enamel which absorbs cooking soils.

At temperatures of 220°C (425°F) or above, the special surface enables these soils to be slowly destroyed.

The higher the temperature the more effective it is.

(b) Cleaning.

In most cases normal cooking operations at 220°C (425°F) will permit this cleaning operation to proceed during cooking. However if higher cooking temperatures are not used regularly, it may be necessary, in order to prevent heavy soiling, to run the ovens without shelves or meat pan, at a maximum setting for a couple of hours.

It should not normally be necessary to clean the "Credaclean" panels with water. If the user feels it is desirable to do so, wipe them over with a clean, soapy cloth, followed by a wipe with a clean damp cloth.

2. VITREOUS ENAMEL OVEN LINERS (TOP OVEN) (R530E)

Cleaning.

These can be cleaned by wiping them over with a clean soapy cloth, followed by a wipe with a clean damp cloth. For more stubborn stains on the side liners use a well soaped, fine steel wool soap pad.

3. OVEN LINERS (MAIN OVEN) Cleaning.Enamel coating:

These can be cleaned by wiping them over with a clean, soapy cloth, followed by a wipe with a clean damp cloth or in a dishwasher (see below removal / refitting instructions).

For more stubborn stains on the side liners, use a well soaped fine steel wool soap pad.

Removal / Refitting.

(a) To remove liners: Grip at the bottom and lift upwards and remove from the oven for cleaning.

(b) To refit liners: Place the liner over the four shoulder screws and slide downwards, ensuring all four corners are engaged correctly and the hand grip is positioned towards the bottom of the oven.

DO NOT use biological washing powder, harsh abrasives or chemical oven cleaners of any kind as this could damage the “Credaclean” and Vitreous Enamel oven liners.

Installation

Electrical Requirements

For your own safety, we recommend that your cooker is installed by a competent person such as one who is registered with NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting). The cooker should be installed in accordance with the latest edition of the IEE Regulations.

Warning: This appliance must be earthed.

Electrical Connections

The installer must check that the voltage shown at the rating plate corresponds with the house electricity supply.

The cooker must be supplied via a suitable double pole isolating switch, having a contact separation of at least 3mm in all poles placed in a readily accessible position adjacent to the cooker.

If the cooker is to be wired into a connector unit, this may be positioned behind the cooker providing the following requirements are met:

i)The connector unit must not project from the wall more than 25mm.

ii)The top of the connector must not be more than 130mm above floor level.

Remove the terminal cover at the rear base of the cooker. Pass the cable through the cable clamp and connect to the appropriate terminals provided.

Allow sufficient cable for any future servicing.

Tighten the screws on the cable clamp and replace the cover.

Make main connections in the connector unit or cooker control unit.

This appliance conforms to B.S. EN 55014 regarding suppression of Radio and Television reception interference.

A double Pole control switch having a minimum rating of 32 amps should be used to feed the cooker using a suitably rated cable.

Where a hob is fitted adjacent to or over the cooker, a 45 amp Double Pole control switch should be used to feed both units via separate suitably rated cables.

We recommend a minimum of 4mm2 PVC insulated twin and earth cable conforming to B.S. 6004 for connection of each appliance.

Where a hob is fitted above the cooker the cable connecting the hob to the cooker control unit must be of 2.5mm2 85o C heat resistant cable to BS6141 table 15

In all cases adhere to routing details (see fig. 5).

This appliance must not be installed over any other appliance that generates heat such as a plinth heater

Note: Due to many different types of installation, a mains cable is not supplied with this product. The installer will fit the correct type and length of cable.

35

Installation

Important

It is essential that the lower cupboard is constructed in the manner illustrated i.e. having side, back, and roof panels so joined as to provide no apertures which could permit access to the oven unit when installed.

1. General

The appliance is designed for mounting at a safe level into an oven housing which must be secured to the backing wall.

2.Ventilation

a.The oven housing unit cabinet dimensions must comply with fig. 4.

b.An air gap of 50mm minimum must be provided at the rear of any top or bottom cupboards or shelves (see fig. 1).

c.It is necessary that the cabinets are provided with unobstructed ventilation, i.e. from adjacent cabinetry. This can be done by either raising the base of the cabinets using the adjusting feet (or spacers) or alternatively by providing a slot in the cabinet plinth to the dimensions in fig. 1.

d.The air gap at rear allows the warmed air to pass out of the inner cabinet space. Where it is intended to fit cupboards above the oven unit to ceiling height, it is essential that the warmed air is exhausted through the front of the cabinet (see fig. 1).

e.If an oven unit is installed adjacent to a tall cabinet, steam escaping from the oven when the door is opened could condense on and maybe stain the adjacent surface. To prevent permanent staining, the adjacent surface should be made of a material that is heat resisting and easy to clean. Adjacent tall cabinets should not be deeper than the oven housing cabinet.

3.Final Installation

a.Using a spirit level, check that the housing cabinet is level from side to side and from front to back in its installed position.

b.Correct any unevenness by placing spacers under the bottom of the cabinet. Make sure that the cabinet rests firmly on the floor without rocking.

c.Before the oven is fitted, the cabinet must be firmly secured to the backing wall for stability.

d.The oven unit should now be lifted (this is a two person lift) into the cabinet and pushed fully home.

e.Finally, the oven is secured to the cabinet by means of the four Pozi Wash Head screws - two through each side trim.

f.Remove all packaging material from the grill and oven interior.

List of loose items:

4 x Pozi Wash Head No. 6 x 15mm screws.
