Top Oven Cookery Notes
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. There are two cooking positions, the shelf placed on runner 1 or 2 (from the base), do not use shelves upside down. There should always be at least 25mm (1in) between the top of the food and the grill element. Warning: Items stored in top oven will get hot when main oven is in use. Operation To heat the oven, turn the control knob clockwise. The top oven pilot light will come on and remain on until the oven reaches the required temperature. The pilot light will automatically go on and off during cooking as the thermostat maintains the correct temperature. Cooking meat/poultry Small joints of meat up to 1. 5kg (3 lbs), or poultry, up to 3. 6kg (8 lbs) (60cm cookers) in weight can be roasted in a small meat pan in the top oven. Larger joints of meat/poultry weighing more than 3. 6kg (8 lbs) (60cm cookers) should be roasted in the main oven. Do not use the grill pan as a meat pan in the top oven as air circulation will be seriously restricted. Top oven as a warming compartment for plates Place the plates/dishes on the shelf, positioned on runner 1, turn top oven control to 100°C for 10-15 minutes. Never use grill control.
Main Oven Cookery Notes
The oven is fitted with wirework shelf supports and two rod shelves. To heat the oven turn the knob clockwise, selecting the require temperature between 80°C (176°F) and 230°C (450°F) as recommended in the temperature chart. The pilot light will immediately come on and remain on until the oven reaches the required temperature. This light will then automatically go off and on during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature. It should be noted that at the end of the cooking period there may be a momentary puff of steam when the oven door is opened. This will disperse in a few seconds and is a perfectly normal characteristic of an oven with a good door seal. Since a circulaire fan oven heats up more quickly, and generally cooks food at a lower temperature than a conventional oven, pre-heating is often unnecessary. However, foods such as bread, scones, Yorkshire pudding, do benefit from being placed in a pre-heated oven. The 'oven temperature charts' are a guide only, giving approximate cooking temperatures and times. To suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10°C. Unless otherwise indicated in the charts food should be placed in a cold oven, i. e. [. . . ] Old appliances must be collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they contain and reduce the impact on human health and the environment.
