The indicator light will immediately come on and will then automatically go off and on during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature. The cooking charts provided in this book 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. The oven is heated by two tubular sheathed elements located under the floor of the oven and on the oven roof, inside the cavity. It should be noted that at the end of a 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.
