Oven Timer Operation

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

AUTOMATIC COOKING

The Top Oven and Main Oven can be controlled by the automatic timer. When the timer control has been set for one oven, it is possible to use the other oven only during the same automatic cooking programme.

NEVER operate the grill when the ovens are set to cook automatically because the oven cavity can become warm and this may cause bacterial growth in food.

HINTS ON AUTOMATIC COOKING

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

2.To ensure food does not cool down and require reheating, set the end time so 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, keep food as cool as possible before placing in the oven, ideally straight from a refrigerator.

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 the food.

7.We advise that dishes containing left-overcooked poultry or meat, e.g. Shepherd's Pie, should not be cooked automatically if there is to be a 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.

To keep water boiling.

1.Use a deep pan, large enough to completely cover the appropriate heating area.

2.Never fill the pan more than one third full of oil.

3.Never leave oil or fat unattended during the heating or cooking period.

4.Never try to fry too much food at a time, especially frozen food. This lowers the fat temperature too much resulting in greasy food.

5.Always dry food thoroughly before frying, then lower it slowly into the hot oil or fat. Frozen foods in particular will cause the fat to froth and spit if added to quickly.

6.Never heat fat or fry with a lid on the pan.

7.Keep the outside of the pan clean and free of streaks of oil or fat.

When cooking food that contains sugar (most food) or syrup, use a utensil which is large enough to prevent boil over or spillage. Sugar spillage will permanently damage the hob and therefore should be cleaned off with care immediately. If sugar spillage has occurred, remove it as long as it is still hot with a metal safety razor scraper. This will avoid any damage.

NEVER LET IT COOL BEFORE REMOVING.

Using The Top 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.

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.

There should always be at least 25mm (1 inch) between the top of the food and the grill element.

WARNING: Items stored in the top oven will get hot when the main oven is in use.

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

Using The Top Oven

A B C G

SETTING THE

Step 1 Check that the timer (G) is in manual.

Place the shelf in the correct position (see Top Oven Temperature Charts in General information book)

Step 2 Select the required cooking temperature using control (E) clockwise (see Top Oven Temperature Charts in General information book). The pilot light ( ● ) will immediately come on, and stay 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 3 When the oven has reached the required temperature, place the food on the shelf (positioned as shown in the Top Oven Temperature Charts) and close the oven door.

Step 4 When you have finished, turn the control knob to the OFF position (O).

PLATE WARMING

Place the oven shelf in position 1 (from the base of the oven). Put the plates and dishes to be warmed on the shelf. Close the oven door, turn the top oven control knob to 100°C and allow the plates to warm for 10 to 15 minutes.

TOP OVEN UTENSILS

Do not use meat pans or baking trays larger then - 225mm x 300mm (9" x 12")

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

Using The Main Oven

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

NOTE: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10˚C. It may also be necessary

to increase or decrease cooking times.

POINTS TO REMEMBER ABOUT FAN OVENS

Fan ovens heat up quicker than convection ovens, so pre - heating is often unnecessary. Cooking can be carried out at slightly lower temperatures.

Identical cooking results can be achieved no matter what shelf is used.

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 must never be placed directly on the floor of the oven for cooking.

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

SETTING THE MAIN OVEN

Step 1 Check that the timer (G) is in manual.

Place the shelf in the correct position (see Main Oven Temperature Charts in General Information book)

Step 2 Select the required cooking temperature using control (F) clockwise (see Main Oven Temperature Charts in General Information book). The pilot light ( ● ) will immediately come on, and stay 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 3 When the oven has reached the required temperature, place the food on the shelf (positioned as shown in the Main Oven Temperature Charts in General Information

book) and close the oven door.

Step 4 When you have finished, turn the control knob to the OFF position (O).

When you open the oven door during cooking a momentary puff of steam may appear, this is NOT a fault. It is perfectly normal and is the sign of a good door seal.

Using The Main Oven For Other Functions

“SLOW” SETTING

This is used for slow cooking, keeping food warm and warming plates for short periods. Extra care must be taken when warming bone china. Do not place food or plates on the floor of the 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

Some 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 cuts of meat are tenderised.

Fully loading the oven can be very economical.

Cooking times can be extended in some cases by up to 2hrs. for late-comers.The kitchen stays cooler.

OPERATION:

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

2)Select Slow Cooking temperature by turning main oven temperature control (F) clockwise ensuring the oven door is fully closed.

STORAGE AND RE-HEATINGOF FOOD

1)If food is to be frozen or not served immediately, cool it in a clean container as quickly as possible.

2)Thaw frozen food completely in the refrigerator before re-heating.

3)Re-heatfood thoroughly and ensure it is piping hot before serving.

4)Only re-heatfood once.

POINTS TO BEAR IN MIND WHEN PREPARING FOOD:

1)Make sure all dishes will fit into the oven before preparing the food.

2)All dishes cooked by the ‘Slow’ setting should be cooked for a minimum of 6 hours. They will 'hold' at this setting for a further hour but marked deterioration in appearance will be noticed in some cases.

3)Joints of meat and poultry should be cooked at fan oven 170oC for 30 mins before turning to the Slow setting.

4)Meat over 2.7 Kg. (6 lbs) and poultry over 2 Kg. (4 lbs 8oz) are unsuitable for the Slow setting.

5)Always stand covered joints on a rack over the meat tin, to allow good air circulation.

6)Pork joints can only be cooked, if by testing with a meat thermometer and internal temperature of at least 88oC is reached.

7)This method is unsuitable for stuffed meat and poultry.

8)Always bring soups, casseroles and liquids to the boil before putting in the oven.

9)When casseroles are used, cover the food first with foil and then the lid to prevent loss of moisture.

10)Always thaw frozen food completely before cooking.

11)Root vegetables will cook better if cut into small even sized pieces.

12)Always adjust the seasoning and thickenings at the end of the cooking time.

13)Egg and fish dishes need only 1-5hours cooking and should be observed from time to time.

14)Dried red kidney beans must be boiled for a minimum of ten minutes after soaking, before inclusion in any dish.
