This cooker is not to be used as a space heater, especially if it is installed in marine
craft or in a caravan.
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and moisture in
the room in which it is installed. Ensure the kitchen is well ventilated. Keep natural
ventilation holes open or install a mechanical ventilation device (mechanical extractor
hood). Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for additional ventilation, for
example opening of a window, or more effective ventilation, for example increasing
the level of mechanical ventilation where present.
Wear proper apparel. Do not wear loose fitting or hanging garments when using the
appliance. They could ignite or melt if they touch an element or hot surface and you

Conditioning the oven
It is important to condition your oven before using it for cooking and baking.
Conditioning will burn off any manufacturing residues and ensure that you get the best
results right from the start.
Before you start:
Make sure you have removed all packaging and any cable ties used to secure the
shelving during transit.
Make sure all shelves are fitted in the oven.
Make sure you have set the clock. If the clock has not been set the cooling fans will
come on but the oven lights will remain off and the oven will not heat up.
2 Set the temperature to 200
C for 30
While the oven is heating up, the
temperature indicator light will glow.
When the oven has reached set
temperature, the temperature indicator
light will go out.

There will be a distinctive smell and a small amount of smoke during the conditioning
process as manufacturing residue is burnt off. This is normal, but make sure the kitchen
is well ventilated while the oven is conditioning.
Once cooled, wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry
Oven cooking guidelines
Use all the oven modes with the oven door closed.
Never use aluminum foil to cover the oven shelves or to line the floor of the oven. The
trapped heat can irreversibly damage the enamel and may even cause fire.
Do not place water, ice, or any dish or tray directly on the oven floor, as this will
irreversibly damage the enamel.
Do not cover the grill pan with aluminum foil. This will catch the grease and could
cause fire.
Do not use plastic wrap or wax paper in the oven.
For food safety reasons, do not leave food in the oven for longer than two hours
before and after cooking or defrosting. This is to avoid contamination by organisms
which may cause food poisoning. Take particular care during warmer weather.
For best results when baking, always preheat your oven. The temperature indicator will
go out when the set temperature is reached.
While the oven is heating the grill element may be on.
Do not open the door until at least ¾ of the way through cooking.
Make sure cake pans do not touch each other or the sides of the oven.
When baking double the recipe (especially cookies) cook time may need to increase.
Your cookware will influence baking times. Dark pans absorb the heat more quickly than
reflective pans; glass cookware may require a lower temperature
Multi-shelf baking may also require a slight increase in cooking time.
Shelf Position Guide
Single shelf: place your baking on a shelf that will have the top of your pan near the
center of the oven cavity.
Multi shelf: always leave a space between shelves to allow the air to circulate.
Shelf positions
Fans Upper/GrillElement
Use Fan Grill to roast whole chicken.
For other meats use Bake for a succulent juicy flavoursome roast.
Boneless, rolled or stuffed roasts take longer than roasts containing bones.
Use a meat thermometer to determine when meat is cooked.
Poultry should be well cooked with the juices running clear and an internal temperature
of 75°C.
For crispy crackling first sear pork at a high temperature, then lower the temperature to
complete the cooking.
If multi-shelf cooking (eg if roasting meat on one shelf and vegetables on another) use
Fan Forced.
Cook larger cuts of meat for longer at a lower temperature. The meat will cook more
Always roast meat fat side up. That way, basting may not be required.
Always rest the meat for at least 10 minutes after roasting to allow the juices to settle.
Remember the meat will continue to cook for a few minutes after removing it from the
Shelf Position Guide
Place the meat on a shelf so that the meat is in the centre of the oven or lower.
This is a healthier alternative to frying.
Always grill with the oven door completely shut.
For best results allow 5 minutes of preheat before placing food in the oven.
If you use glass or ceramic pans, be sure they can withstand the high temperatures of
the grill.
To avoid piercing the meat and letting juices escape, use tongs or a spatula to turn the
meat halfway through cooking.
Brush meat with a little oil to help keep the meat moist during cooking. Alternatively
marinade the meat before grilling (but be aware that some marinades may burn easily).
Where possible grill cuts of meat of a similar thickness at the same time. This will ensure
even cooking.
Always keep a close watch on your food while grilling to avoid charring or burning.
Shelf Position Guide
For thinner cuts of meat, toasting or browning foods, use a higher shelf position.
Thicker cuts of meats should be grilled on lower shelves or at a lower grill setting to
ensure even cooking.
Use Bake or Fan Bake to reheat food.
Always reheat food to piping hot. This reduces the risk of contamination by harmful
Once hot, set the oven temperature to WARM to keep food hot.
Never reheat a food more than once.
Any condensation that forms during the cooking process will collect in the drip channel,
below the door. This may be mopped up using a sponge once the oven has cooled.
Use all the functions with the oven door closed.
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.

By using the central rear heating element and fan, hot air is blown into the cavity,
providing a consistent temperature at all levels, making it perfect for multi-shelf cooking.
Trays of cookies cooked on different shelves are crisp on the outside and chewy in the
Meat and poultry are deliciously browned and sizzling while remaining juicy and tender.
Casseroles are cooked to perfection and reheating is quick and efficient.
When multi-shelf cooking it is important to leave a gap between trays (eg use shelves
3 & 5) to allow the air to move freely. This enables the browning of foods on the lower
If converting a recipe from Bake to Fan Forced, we recommend that you decrease the
bake time or decrease the temperature by approximately 20°C.
For items with longer bake times (eg over an hour) it may be necessary to decrease
both time and temperature.
Ideal for multi-shelf cooking biscuits, cookies, scones, muffins and cupcakes.
